Just Be A Queen


I actually felt fine waking up this morning after last night; just a little headache if anything. I guess that I didn’t party all that hard, haha. But I’m totally okay with that because it means no crappy feelings all day the next day. I don’t think I will ever be that girl (although I know plenty of people who seem to strive to feel as crappy as possible the morning after going out).

Breakfast was b-fast cookie dough cereal. Yum!

1/3 c oats, scoop protein powder, almond butter, cinnamon, blueberries, and soymilk. Heated up in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the almond butter and bloobs a tiny bit. Then topped it with a little bit of flaxseed meal.

Lunch was not documented. Once again, I was hanging out with my boyfriend and when we actually get the opportunity to be together the focus is on him, not the blog. As it should be.

Dinner, however, was Phase 50-B of Operation “Use Up This Darn Jar of Marinara“. I liked the veggie-burger-as-meatballs idea, so I did that again today and threw in a handful of spinach for some greens as well. The jar is almost gone!



Last night, I went out for my friend’s 21st birthday. It was such a blast! Sometimes it’s nice to just get yourself all dressed up and go out on the town with a small group of good friends. We started out at Applebee’s for food and so she could have a drink. It actually wasn’t her first legal drink since her father took her out at 1am yesterday morning, to Applebee’s incidentally! A Long Island ice tea. I’ve never tried one of those before, but apparently she liked it! I have exactly 1 years + 2 weeks to decide what I want my first drink to be, but all I can think about is trying a Dirty Girl Scout (chocolate, dur)! Any suggestions on what my first real drink should be?

After dinner, we headed over to a club, one of the few open on a Sunday night. This was only the second club I’ve ever been to, but I thought that it was a hoot! Though, going with an awesome group of people was probably responsible for that. Anyways, it was Drag Night, so there were a bunch of fun performances. My friend even got some free drinks since it was her birthday! Ahhh, peer pressure. She was a champ though and took one two for the team. Free is free, right?

Today was Day 1/7 of my summer break before classes start up again. Can you believe that the professors just (as in today) posted the textbooks that we’re going to need? Doesn’t give a lot of time, so I wasn’t able to get my books from my usual source (HELLO used book sellers on Amazon!) and had to pay much more to get the books from one of the local student bookstores instead so that I’d be sure to get them in time/get them at all. Though, have I ever mentioned to you guys before about my insane love of textbook buying? I really do enjoy getting new books every semester. Looking at the amount of material that I don’t know yet but will know by the end of the course. 🙂 I’m a nerd.



Yoga. Got to stretch those tight hip flexors from this weekend! In between a bit of dancing at the club last night and a good night’s sleep, my flexors actually weren’t all that bad this morning, and the yoga will just add to that and hopefully make for a stellar-feeling body tomorrow and for the rest of the week. This DVD workout always kills my arms, though. Getting easier to complete, but still very difficult for me.


I’m now on Formspring! I plan on doing another Q&A post once I get enough responses. Seriously, ASK ME ANYTHING. My running, IBS, past, relationships, family, school, ED, nothing is off limits. And it’s completely anonymousso don’t hold back.


What is your favorite (non-shot) drink?

What do you “geek out” over?

  1. i hate it when professors don’t post their books until the last minute! I am a cheap-book-whore.

    I def. thought you were older than 20.. happy almost 20th birthday! My 21st is Dec. 10. Can’t wait til my boyfriend can buy beer during a regular grocery trip when I am with him! I’m not the party type either, though, and don’t really think being “legal” will change that.

    • People have always told me that I look older than I am, ever since maybe 3rd or 4th grade. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not yet, haha. Aren’t women always trying to look younger than their years?

      Cheap textbooks, for the win! Even though my textbooks are paid for as a high school graduation present, I still feel bad paying full-price for a book and try to get used at the lowest price possible on a still usable book (i.e. not falling apart at the binding).

      My boyfriend is 21, but I’m just a “measly” 19 (20 in 2 weeks though, so I might as well start rounding up now).

      I only really go out once every other month, and then it’s usually better if it’s just a small group of close friends hanging out rather than a strange party with a bunch of people you don’t know. Adds safety, too!

  2. I really like what you said about focusing on spending time with your boyfriend, not focusing on the blog. Definitely the way it should be!
    I still have 3 1/2 years, but I think my first legal drink will be Sangria. I know that’s not too crazy, but I was allowed to have it when I was in Spain and it had always been my Mom’s favorite drink, so I’ve really come to enjoy it.
    I agree with the commenter above, I thought you were older! Not in a bad way though, more like a sophisticated, mature way.

    • I know. I’m probably not your “typical college student”. That was me last year, but in the past year I’ve done a lot of growing up and changing for the better that gives you the woman you see here today!

      I’ve heard good things about Sangria. My parents, sister, and our family friends are all huge wine-o’s and are constantly trying to get me to like wine, but I just don’t. 😛 I’m so picky, haha.
