Weekend Rambles

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Alright everyone, so today is a rainy yucky day, and I've got lots of driving to do. It's 8:45 and I worked my butt off yesterday studying for a final ALL day, literally all day, so let's all keep our fingers crossed that I did well on that! 

So today's post is just going to be a bunch of ramblings that I have had on my mind lately. Not sure if I'm gonna be motivated enough to write another one tomorrow, so hopefully this will hold off until I decide to write again :) 

1. Whoever invented summer classes needs punched in the face. I hate them. They're stupid. Seriously. They're just fake classes pretending to be real classes. Everyone knows you are fake. But the grades are real. Oh the grades are real....
Seriously this is how I spent the 2nd to last Saturday of my summer. I hate you summer classes.


2. Can everyone just say please and thank you all the time? It would make me and I bet everyone else if everyone just used some common courtesy sometimes. 

3. It has been really cool here lately, like REALLY cool. Like it's been like 65 degrees everyday. What the heck is that about? I mean I LOVE IT. But it is really just a tease for fall. So I have been getting super excited to rock my Bean Boots this coming fall/winter. I finally indulged myself in some and I can't wait to wear them. Any suggestions/out recommendations for them would be very welcome :)
Just some infinity scarf loving on my way to work cause it was so cool out!

4. I haven't mentioned this in like 2 posts so here we go again, I MISS MY IPHONE SO DAMN MUCH!!! I am really working hard on getting one from ebay, but those freaking automatic bidder things are so annoying. So if anyone has a Sprint iphone for sale or has tips on how to get a phone off contract and still legit, hit me up! :) :) :) I want to be team iphone again! 

5. Honestly, what am I doing with my life that I don't have a furry animal pet friend to cuddle with yet? My life is really missing some animal cuddle loving. 
If anyone is looking to get me a present, this busshel of kittens would do just fine please :) 


6. I just downloading all the best songs from the Season 4 Glee Soundtrack and I am so excited to listen to all of them. I have one more episode left so I am almost done with the season! Also I downloading the new Luke Bryan CD (AMAZING AS ALWAYS) and the new Parachute CD too. They are coming to Tech the first week of school and although they are kind of a band that not too many people have heard of, I love them and so excited to see them! 

7. Despite the fact that I love how cool it has been here lately it is really throwing a kink in my pool time with only one week of summer left. I am so pale it's scary and I need to get some tan on me asap. So grr please sun come back out.

8. I feel like a whole new person now that I have a car. I can drive to work or to the grocery store or run errands whenever the frick I want! It's so nice! I don't have to coordinate with my roommates or friends or brother on when they are going to do stuff and ask if they can take me with them or drop me off on the way or whatever. Honestly it is something I will never take for granted again, but watch out ya'll Kate's got a new set of wheels. 

9. I need to read more. I have gotten some more done since work has slowed and I'm hoping I have some relaxation time to blow through a few more this week without school work, but I guess we will see about that. 

10. Also, I just updated my "contact" info page so go check it out and send me some emails! :) 

Alright, I think that is all for now! But I hope you are all enjoying the rest of your weekends and yours are less rainy and yucky than mine, but hopefully the beginning of this week will be better than the beginning of this weekend has been! So now it's time for Kate to go shower and pack and leave by 10:30...1...2...3...GO!

Cop-Out

So I admit, today is such a cop-out post. I have like 4 drafts saved on here, and can't really totally finish any of them, I'm just not feeling inspired enough. So I stole this from Heather over at Pretty Strong Medicine. This is my last week of summer before school starts, and I am working on getting books, paying my sorority dues, getting my room in order, getting my schedule in order, avoiding studying for my final that is due by midnight tonight and trying to enjoy the last real week of summer weather and summer fun, oh and getting un-sick so I have the energy to do all of those things, so excuse me if I have been a little preoccupied. I am getting excited cause I am going to visit my bff Stevie this weekend, so that will be a nice little break and treat to myself for finishing this class :) 

I'm tagging all of you! Choose from the list of questions below and tell us more about yourself! Feel free to Tweet/Facebook/Comment Below your post!

1. What do you plan on doing with your life a decade from now?
I'll be 31. Hopefully I'll have kids by then, or at least married with one on the way. I really just want to graduate college and go to grad school then maybe travel a little and find a job and then get married. I mean, isn't that how everyone wants to do it though? So I guess we will just see. Also, I want to look something like this when I'm 31. (I just found out that Rachel Bilson is 31 and she looks SMOKING HOT! I can dream right?) 

2. Would you rather go back in time or remain where you are in terms of the time of your life?
I would for sure rather remain in time rather than go back. Hands down no questions asked. I can't even imagine going back to my life the way it used to be. It blows my mind how much my life has changed even in the past four years, and I wouldn't change it for the world. I love my friends and my school and where I am at in my life, looking back on my life I thought I was happy but I had no idea. 

3. What’s something you hate?
Hot tamales and indian food. And when people don't say please and thank you. Seriously it's the easiest thing in the world and makes you look like a great member of society. It's kind of a necessity thing for me. Those are just the first three things that came to my mind. :) 

4. What is your usual everyday dress code?
It's pretty embarassing but literally if I'm not in yoga pants/norts and a big tshirt or sweatshirt, it's a big deal. Woops. I really hate jeans and would rather wear a dress any day of the week than jeans and a shirt. I can just never find the right jeans to fit me so I'd rather not.

5. Why do you blog?
For me. Literally for me. I want to look back on this time in my life and smile and know that I wrote it all down. I don't blog to share my personal experiences or have lots of followers (although those are all great perks) but it's really just for me at the end of the day.

6. Your greatest personal achievement.
At this point, going to college. I know I hate a full life ahead of me and a lot more things to accomplish, but just being here at a school where I didn't know anyone and really finding myself. I have also made some personal decisions in my personal life recently that were very hard for me and things I have NEVER done before, and I am really happy. I am starting to trust myself and just be happy with me which is something that has never happened before.

Going To The Gym According to Me and P&R


So I will admit, this is the first post of my whole short little blogger life that I have ever planned a post. Like got out a paper and pen and planned it. Apparently a "blog notebook" is a thing a lot of people have. And according to all of my very strategic and color coded planning, you would think this is something I would be interested in, but mostly I just write whatever I want. I am still trying to get on board with the whole "write your posts in advance" deal, so we will take baby steps.

But I know I have mentioned this before, but my new favorite show is Parks and Recreation. And I mean FAVORITE. I have literally watched all 5 seasons of this show on Hulu/Netflix at least 3 times through and can quote most of the episodes verbatim. It's scary. I want to talk about it or watch it all the time. I literally talk about these characters and events and situations as if they are real life. It's REALLY scary. But anyways. If you haven't watched this show yet, please do. It's super hilarious and then we can talk about it ALL. THE. TIME. And I mean it. really. Go watch it. Are you watching it yet? DO IT NOW!! 



Anyways...so I decided to compile a list of life lessons that this show/characters have taught me. I have way too many hilarious ideas for just one post, so I'm gonna make this a series even if I am the only one reading this I am legitimately laughing out loud at each one of these, so just roll with it ya'll. Please :) 



A Few Thoughts On Exercise, According to Parks and Recreation

How it feels when you and your friends first decide to get in shape photo tumblr_makf8g61tT1rpf23po1_250_zpsd2719616.gif
just replace "physical exam" with you know spring break/fraternity formals/summer time in this case


You have that one friend who is at the gym for 3 hours a day and is always like  photo tumblr_lztujeWzxg1qfk8vfo1_500_zpsa5fc1ff3.png
and LITERALLY you want to kill them. 


So you decide to start to go to the gym yourself and you look around and photo tumblr_mn4ut6710S1qhnavvo1_500_zps8171fd7d.gif
it can be quite overwhelming

So you decide to take it easy and go run some laps around the track  photo tumblr_mk52tehLT31qi9dhho3_250_zps8997c48e.gif


 but then you realize
 photo tumblr_mj5s8krluT1ryaew7o1_500_zps49106d7e.gif
really though, it's actually terrible


so you decide to go to do some kickboxing classes, I mean at least they'll tell you what to do
 photo tumblr_mk870weoAU1rmzrqmo1_500_zps97a6afef.gif


Somehow you and your friend end up in some weird group yoga class looking like this
like wtf, how does this happen? it always does...

and then the peppy over enthusiastic instructor tries to come over and talk to you about how great you are doing and how great exercise is
 photo anigif_enhanced-buzz-1478-1372286227-16_zps55dc827f.gif
Don't be happy at the gym. I hate you.


You finally finish you first day at the gym and when you leave you feel all like
 photo tumblr_miqyey21zB1qg2856o1_500_zps8a00656c.gif


But then you wake up the next day your muscles hurt so bad and it looks something like this...
 photo tumblr_mpzs8gAlQc1rdmnfqo1_400_zps9fec87dc.gif

After telling yourself that it was a good effort and you really gave it your all 
 photo tumblr_mpm48hRXVR1sn8xnoo4_500_zpsc29c6347.gif

You finally tell the gym
 photo tumblr_loj8e0GPIx1qicon8o1_500_zps32febb23.gif



Welp, that pretty much sums up my experiences at the gym. But in all seriousiousness, I'm working on it, I swear. I realized today after seeing a picture of Rachel Bilson that she is the same height as me, and I look so where near anything like her. So I'm working on it.

Alright, well hopefully you guys got as much as a kick out as I did (it's my blog and I can do what I want to) out of these gifs and laughed a little bit at least. For now, Little Kate is over and out.

Boys Behind The Blog [Link Up]

So I decided to do this "Boys Behind The Blog" link up, I think it is such a cool idea! A lot of the blogs I follow have their husbands/boyfriends/fiances answer these questions, and I hate to disappoint but that is NOT who is going to be answering these questions today. Why not? CAUSE I DON'T HAVE ONE!! 

Although I am not one of those bloggers who is going to entertain you for hours on end about my wedding planning or my long term husband/fiance or anything like that, I'd like to say I have a lot of great guys in my life! - Now accepting applications for the next link up BTW ;)

One of the greatest being my little brother. He is by far one of the most important people in my life, my partner in crime, my closest confidant, and of course sometimes the root of all my anger/annoyance. But I love him none the less, and when I realize that this link up was today, I automatically face book messaged him saying "HELP! ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS FOR A FUN PROJECT I HAVE PLEASEE!" and he did cause he's the best. I am constantly asking him for favors, and this and that, and he is always so helpful (usually). 


A little bit of background info on my brother for those of you who don't know him (or me) HE IS THE BEST! He and I are by far the closest out of all of my siblings, from hating each other when we were little, to going to the same college 6 hours away from home together, I would say we make a pretty great team! Here are some super awesome pictures of us looking so flyyyy.


So as you can tell we are pretty tight, and without further ado, here are his awesome answers to the "Boys Behind The Blog #3 Link Up"

Mal Smiles

1. What would you do with $1,000,000?
A new car and truck and a ranch with a house and land. And of course he would pay off his and his sister's huge out of state tuition loans for school. DUH.

2. What is your dream job?
Being a professional tactical shooter or gunsmith/rifle builder

3. Who is your celebrity crush?
IDK, Kate Upton I guess? 

4. What is your favorite sports team?
The Steelers

5. What was your AOL/AIM screen name back in the day?
tuttheturtle122

alright, well hope you all enjoyed my brothers answers even though I had to hassle them out of him a little :P

A Deep Deep Deep Dark Secret

Well, I'm gonna start this wonderful Friday off by being VERY blunt: This girl is sick. Like real life sick. I have had this nasty cough for a good month now, and it won't go away. And now I am all stuffy and sound pretty much like Steve Urkel when I talk. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!?!?! IT'S AUGUST!! BLAH. I despise being sick. At the beginning of the week I wasn't sick enough to be bedridden, but after a few more days this cough/sore throat combo has turned into a full blown sinus and ear infection, that always happens to me though, nothing new here. Although I have been trying to just use that as an excuse to sit on my butt and watch Parks and Rec and Shark week or some other equally as time-wasting and enthralling show all week....

I guess this leads into a good post I could write. This draft has been sitting up on my computer all day and I honestly had no idea where I was going with it I literally have been trying to find inspiration all day and it finally came to me at 10 o'clock tonight while I was being home from work sick and finding a new show to watch on Hulu/Netflix so I can stop re-watching Parks and Rec for the 4th time (seriously guys, it's an issue how much I watch that show). But I have something to confess.....

I AM A GLEEK!! 

Okay, so I am not the most super obsessed, caught-up-on-every-season, concert-going-to fan (I'm looking at you Stevie), but I love this show, and I think that is something a lot of people don't know about me. 

I am sitting here watching the 4th season I finally found on Hulu and I just got chills and cried during the 4th episode. Finn and Blane started singing "Barely Breathing" and for some reason it just got to me. The songs are always so good, and I have to say it's a show that I actually continually keep up with, maybe not during the normal seasons, but I have seen it all the way up to season 4 at least. And now so soon after Cory Montheith's (Finn) tragic passing it's so emotional watching this show again after almost a year of not seeing it. 

I decided to play a little game with one of my friends and decide to break the news to him that I watch Glee before I made this post, just to see general reactions, and his response was something along the lines of and I quote "I thought you were different, I thought I knew you, I feel so betrayed!" haha just showing the fact that either A) I'm not someone people would normally beg to watch Glee, or B) Unless you actually watch Glee, you think that show is the worst thing to happen to pop culture ever. And trust me, before I started watching it, I thought it was the cheesiest, stupidest show ever, and now here I am, admitting to everyone on the interwebs that I am, yes, a Gleek. 

But there it is world, I WATCH GLEE. And I love it. I have all the soundtracks on my ipod and I'm not even ashamed. Yes, I admit, sometimes the show can be dramatic and silly and overplayed, but the times where the song really comes together and just brings out the emotions no one is willing to say, that's when it is all worth it, and that's why I watch it. 


And, since it is friday, I will be linking up with Whitney over at I Wore Yoga Pants with her #backthatazzup Friday! So here is the song that I was obsessing over on Glee and have been listening to non stop all week...woops :)

Spoiled Little Brat

So after talking to a couple real life friends about my blog life (for you blog people, my real life friends actually read this, and for you real life friends, there are people out on blog land who I have never met who read this) I have gotten the advice that maybe I should get a little more real on here. Instead of just talking about how exciting forgetful my weekend was and stuff, I should talk about something more serious. So here it is: my first really serious inside to let you guys know about my feelings. So what am I going to talk about? Something that has actually been REALLY bothering my inside for the past month or so. I have mentioned it on here in one of my other posts, but really, it was a lot more than that. 

SO I told you guys how my parents bought me a car. Let me correct that statement. I bought myself a car. With MY MONEY. Now why do I say that my parents bought me a car? They used my money to by a car without even letting me make the final decision. 

Here's how it went down. 

So the past 3 years of college I haven't had a car. The transmission in my car I drove in high school blew out 2 weeks before I moved down to Virginia Tech. Just my luck. So of course I didn't have a car my first three years here. It wasn't much of an issue my freshman year, I was living on campus, didn't have a job, and was too busy being overwhelmed with all my school work and new friends on campus to really be bothered by anything else. 


Then came the summer after my freshman year, where I moved home after moving into the dorms, and then after spending approximately 30 days back home I decided I needed to get out and come back down to school to get a job. It wasn't too big a deal I was living with a really good friend who let me live in his apartment and also would drive me to and from work when I needed it. 

Then came my sophomore year where I was living in the apartment complex farthest from campus, having a steady job at night, and also was a full time member of my sorority so I was expected to be at weekly meetings and events. Having a car was SUPER annoying but luckily my two roommates and boyfriend were nice enough to either A) let me borrow their cars when I was desperate or B) drive me somewhere whenever I really needed it. 


Now has come and gone my junior year and summer afterwords. I made it through another year of working a job, taking a full class schedule, Zeta, and countless other things, without a car. I worked two jobs this summer and my two roommates were so nice enough to wake up at 7 am everyday for all of July to drive me to work. (Seriously, how did I find the best roommates and friends, ever?) Also, this year was a LITTLE better because my brother started his freshman year and he had a car (which I was a little bitter about) but still, it did make getting home and stuff a little less of a bitch, excuse me, hassle. 


Needless to say, I needed a car, BADLY. This summer is ending and my senior year of college will be starting. I am starting the school year off working two jobs, one as the Manager at the Calling Center (which I have been doing for a while now) and the other as an Internship with Career Services on campus. I am wildly excited about this new opportunity but knew that me being carless was not reliable enough for me to take on all these things. So I took it upon myself to talk to my parents about my transportation situation in a much more serious way than I have taken it before. 



I decided that I would use $3,000 of my own money to find a car for myself because to me, the stress of not being on time/not knowing how I would get somewhere/constantly bugging my roommates/friends/brother for a ride somewhere was not worth it to me. So I talked to my parents about it, and have been stalking craigslist for nice-ish cars under $3,000 for the past 3 months. I was mostly looking at Hondas because everyone knows that they last forever and they are super reliable cars. Also, I know this is literally the pickiest thing ever, but I didn't want some funky color. I wanted a nice normal black or grey or white or silver. Not to hard to ask for. But so I searched and searched and searched and it didn't seem like my parents were taking this too seriously, and I was getting frustrated. 

When one day, out of the blue, my dad texted me a picture of a green saturn. Not from a link I had sent him or anything like that, just out of the blue. So I was concerned. After between him and my stepmom for a few minutes, I come to find out they had bought the car. They hadn't told me anything about it, hadn't asked me about it, NOTHING. THEY BOUGHT A CAR WITH MY MONEY AND DIDN'T EVEN ASK ME! Like I said, I understand that I asked them to help me find a good car for me, but come on, not even telling me until after the deal was already done? That's not just fair. It's not considerate. It's not nice.


To relate to the title of this post, I swear I am not a spoiled little brat by any means. I like to think that I work very hard for the things I have, and don't have it as easy as other people. This post isn't supposed to be me complaining about the fact that I now have a car, one of the things I have literally DREAMED about the past 4 years, it's complaining about how upset I am how my parents handled the situation. 


Having a car is kind of a new chapter in my life. I know that sounds so dramatic. But imagine not having your car, or for those of you that don't have one, you know EXACTLY what I am talking about. It means more independence for me, not having to worry about the next step of my life once I graduate college and am no longer in the safe walls of my Blacksburg campus. It will give me a new found freedom that I have longed for. I sound so dramatic, and seriously I am BEYOND HAPPY with finally having a car. 

But really, I don't think that when I am spending $3,000 of my own money, I should have to settle, and be disappointed. And that's exactly what happened. I was not in the decision making process at all in this, and it hurts. It makes me feel like my parents are still treating me like a child when in reality this is one of the most grown up decisions I have had to make in a while. I feel like I am not entirely happy with this decision, and it is because my parents made it for me. I'm a little bit confused, and happy I have a car, but not totally happy. I guess this hasn't really gotten me anywhere, and this post is long and confusing and kind of whiney, but whatever, I got real, and now you guys know. 


But in order of blog rules, and there are way too many words on this page, here is my picture for this post. I am just trying to remember that although I am disappointed, I know I am going to be happier. But I am going to make the best of this situation, I am going to love the crap out of this car, and never take having a car for granted again. I am TOO excited for more jam sessions by myself while driving than I can even count :) Also, after writing this post, I wanted to give the biggest thanks ever to all of my friends/roommates/boyfriends/coworkers who were putting up with my car-less self and driving me all over the planet just cause you guys love me!

The Final Countdown

Well, it is August, and I only have one thing to say: "How the HELL did that happen??" Like seriously, I'm pretty sure just two weeks ago I was finishing up my spring semester finals and dreaming of a full summer ahead of me. Isn't that how it always happens though? 

Summer is a time of year unlike any other, and I admit I really enjoyed myself this summer, a lot more than I was expecting, and I'll have to say it was a pretty eventful one. Having summers off is one thing that is very appealing to me about working in a school, and that is one of the reasons that I chose to steer my career path in the way that it is, summers off baby!!

But anyways, so in honor of this summer being almost over, and having about a month left, I'm making a little list of "cool things kate did this summer" and "things kate still needs to do this summer"







So as we can see, I've got lots of things to do with my three weeks left, so we will see! 

- Do you have any fun summer plans left this summer?
- What have you done exciting this summer already? 
- Did you get to check anything off your bucket list this summer?

Finally a Friday

So today was everything I wanted it to be. I got to "sleep in" AKA not set an alarm, after deliberating knowing I needed a "pool/personal health/reading/sleeping in/whatever I wanted to do" day, I did just that. I did not schedule a single interview at work today, so I didn't have to go in if I didn't want to. And I didn't. And it felt great. I woke up kinda early and spent a good 4 hours on my back patio just reading and drinking coffee in my pajamas. It was amazing. Then once it got hot enough I took my reading to the pool, where I FINALLY got to see some sunlight. Usually at this point in the summer I am tan to the point where it is a little too much, but I love it, and this summer has been a severe disappointment but hopefully I can managea little more color before the summer is up. Anyways, my day looked a little bit like this. Pretty close to perfection, huh?
(and yes all of those photos are crappily cropped from my own instagram because now that I don't have an iphone I use my ipod to instagram and then I screen shot the photos from my laptop....I think there are some people that would call putting that much effort into getting a few pictures onto my blog a problem...but I know you all in blogland get it :) 


After talking to a really good friend about book recommendations last night, I realized how little I actually read this summer, with orientation, and weddings, class, and traveling, and other real world stuff, I was too busy to breath, sleep, or eat, let alone read for pleasure. So today I finally finished my first book of the summer, not much of an accomplishment considering it is a book I read at least twice a year, but hey, it is a start. So hopefully tomorrow I can get another good day of reading and relaxing in and get a head start on another book. 

The reason today wasn't totally perfect was because I got a sort of good news/bad news situation. The past few weeks I have been trying to convince my parents to let me get a car. I am a 21 year old girl going to college 6 hours away from "home" who works two jobs, and I don't have a freaking car. Something is wrong with that picture. So after literally years of debate and convincing, my adventure to finding a car for me had started. Now to preface this story: It was not being bought with my parents' money. It was MY money, that has been being saved for "school" but it hasn't been enough to even pay off a single one of my loans, so I have been saving it for something I REALLY needed...hmmm...LIKE A CAR! So moral of the story, the past few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster of me emailing craigslist ads of cars within my price range and decent mileage/all that car stuff to my dad almost daily. I found out through my brother that he had barely even been looking at them and not actually doing anything proactive. Now the school year is starting in less than a month so I was getting worried. I needed them to get this car, and then find a way for me to get up to Pittsburgh to get it, and with my brother coming down next weekend to move into his new apartment, it had to be done by then. (Also I know that was a super duper bad run on grammer sentence, but I don't even care.) So today I get a text from my dad, just a picture of a car. Not a single detail or explanation. And let me tell you, it is NOT a car I would have chosen for myself, and NOT a car from any of the ads I had sent them. Moral of the story: I have a car. And I am thrilled to finally being able to stop bugging my friends constantly for rides and bumming around feeling like a hobo without a car. It made me feel powerless and helpless and I hated it. I am really not in the mood or the mindset to get into too specific of details of it, but basically I am mad because they didn't so much as say "we found this car, can we buy it WITH YOUR MONEY? just checking cause it is your money." I understand I asked them to help me. I understand that they actually got a car. But I don't understand why you wouldn't at least call me to double check with me since it's my mother effing money. 

I am sure I am going to write a longer and more in depth and more explanational (agian, ignore that lack of being a real word) post about this whole situation, but right now, it was kind of a day ruiner that was supposed to be one of the happiest moment of the past four years for me with all the god dang build up. There is a lot more background to this story than I am giving tonight, so like I said, it will require a lot more explanation for everyone to not think I am some sort of spoiled little brat. I think I just need a night to calm down and get a little perspective before I say something I don't actually mean.

So for now, I am trying to focus on how good today way, how tan I finally am, how cozy I have been all day, and how lucky I am to finally have something I have been praying for for the past 4 years, that will significantly make my senior year at college a hell of a lot easier. But tonight, I'm probably going to go have a glass of wine to calm my nerves, and continue to find a book out of the 10 I took off of my bookshelf last night to get lost in. 

I think this sums it up about right today:

ABCs of Yours Truly

Soo today I had this big awesome post ready about the move my from old apartment into my new apartment, I swear (It was written in my planner and on the little sticky notes I have on my desktop, I promise!) but since I lost my iphone and the camera on the phone I have been "using" actually sucks so much it confuses me, I didn't want to get out my real camera and take pictures of the new apartment. I know. I know. Talk about "First World Blogger Problems" seriously. I am redefining lazy and pathetic with this excuse, but I don't even care. Not one bit. I miss my iphone more than I miss most people I haven't seen in this long, and I'm not even ashamed. 

But so instead of a fun post about my move to my new nice fancy apartment, and since it isn't Friday so I can't occupy myself with my first High 5 For Friday in quite a long time, I'm gonna be boring and lazy and do a little ABCs of Kate post to occupy myself at work while I sit here and wait for my interviews to call in. 

ALSO!! I wanted to brag a little bit about my NEW BLOG DESIGN!!!! My BFF and temporarily roommate Courtney can tell you how excited I have been about this the past two days. It's literally all I've been talking about, and last night after we both got home from work I spent a good 3 hours working on my "About Me" section and making everything look just the way I want it. So first I wanted to give a big thank you shout out to Stevie who gifted this little blog design to me as a present, as I have talked about before, she really is my bloggy god mother :) And to Vanessa, who took a lot of my random mixed up thoughts and ideas for a blog and turned them into an amazing design! 

A: Attached or Single? I’m currently single because my iphone is gone and I’m pretty sure that thing was my closest relationship (okay I know it is getting annoying that I keep bringing that up, but come on. Can you imagine?)

B: Best Friend? picture is worth a thousand words soooo

C: Cake or pie? Um, Pie for sure. Or brownies. Or cupcakes. Or ice cream. I’d choose ice cream over all of those.

D: Day of choice? Friday or Saturday. If you get at least one productive thing done on a Friday you feel like  you have superpowers and then you get to reward yourself with the whole weekend.

E: Essential item? I feel like it’s cheating if I say my iphone considering it’s been 3 weeks without one and I am still alive and breathing….but my iphone. Okay, internet. Whatever.

F: Favorite color? Blue and green. if you couldn't tell from my blog design...

G: Gummy bears or worms? Gummy bears, I’m not a fan of the gummy worms with the sour stuff on them, it’s overwhelming.

H: Hometown? Good old Pittsburgh, PA!

I: Favorite indulgence? Um well anytime I buy alcohol I consider it an indulgence cause it’s not necessary. That sounded weird but that’s how I think of it.

J: January or July? January. July is usually too hot and New Years is fun.

K: Kids? Not yet. (also i just had a flashback to when you used to do these type of survey things on myspace. everything is just making a big circle now.)
L: Life isn’t complete without? Days where you don’t get out of bed, a shameless jam sesh in the car, and coffee.

M: Marriage date? NOPE. The next major date I need to worry about is my college graduation and I’m not even sure I’m ready to commit to that yet.

N: Number of brothers/sisters? My little brother Thomas, my older brother AJ, and two older sisters, Lacie and Sarah



O: Oranges or Apples? Apples covered in peanut butter. Or chocolate. Or caramel.

P: Phobias/Fears? Being alone forever (but not right now), drowning, driving in the rain,

Q: Quotes? "She knew this transition was not about becoming someone better, but about finally allowing herself to become who she'd always been" 

R: Reasons to smile? I’m listening to Hootie and the Blowfish and blogging drinking my coffee and sitting next to my space heater (my office really cranks the AC) at work right now. Really. What else do I need?
S: Season of choice? Fall. Football, Leaves changing, boots, hoodies, and pumpkin flavored everything, come on. It’s really unfair.

T: Tag 5 People. NOPE.

U: Unknown fact about me? I'm obsessed with squirrels. like....OBSESSED. I wish I could own one as a pet.

V: Vegetable? All of them. Broccoli and peas are my fave.
W: Worst habit? Procrastination.

X: Xray or Ultrasound? For what? What a weird question. Ew. Stop.

Y: Your favorite food? This is a trick question right? Um. Mac and cheese, and eggs. I’m a weird person.
Z: Zodiac sign? Sagittarius

Well that is all for me today, maybe sometime this weekend ya'll will get a nice post about my nice new apartment but we will see, and tomorrow is FRIDAY SO YAYYYYYYYY!! I am hoping that it is nice and sunny here in Blacksburg cause I fully intend on plopping my pale ass next to the pool with a full bottle of tanning oil and wine in a water bottle all day. So we will see how this weekend goes :)
