I May Have Reached Creeper Status…But It’s Not My Fault!

Published February 29, 2012 by jrm17

Our college so smartly gave all the freshman (Oh sorry I’m not allowed to use that word.  I totally meant First Years)…anyway the smart cookies in charge gave our freshman iPads.  They thought they’d be used for educational purposes.  I really don’t know what kind of drugs these people did back in the day but it was clearly some good stuff because you want to know what they kiddos use the new technology for…Facebook.  Okay, it’s not just Facebook and it’s not just the freshman but I am thoroughly against having computers in class (Okay maybe not completely.  Maybe like 50 percent).  Everyone else’s distracts me (And plus aren’t cell phones enough?  Texting is enough entertainment that allows me to still pay attention).  Anyway, while I’m against all of this nonsense, other people’s habits have taught me quite a few things.

I Hope You Had The Time Of Your Life

Published February 27, 2012 by jrm17

I’m one of those people who actually enjoyed high school.  I had some awesome friends who were in almost every class I had because we were all lame together.  I had some of the coolest teachers in the world and I still talk to a few.  I could get away with the few things I did that broke the rules (It’s not like my tank tops and shorts were that inappropriate) because I was such a good girl.  Thanks to being in all the AP classes, never doing anything wrong, being captain of the softball teams, and in about a million clubs, I could get away with not having a hall pass.  Yep, life was good.  Of course, I don’t hate college but some things from the past three years have definitely made me appreciate my time at BHS.

Girls–A Riddle Wrapped Inside An Enigma Wrapped Inside A Taco

Published February 24, 2012 by jrm17

Thanks to my schedule and those of my friends, I spend my Tuesdays and Thursdays with no one to really talk to.  It helps me get a lot of work done (When I’m not distracted by Facebook).  And I’ve come to some conclusions about myself and the female species.  Being a girl, you would think that I totally understand us.  Well, that’s a bunch a boo-hockey because I don’t at all.  I don’t understand myself half the time so how am I supposed to understand an entire gender when we are really good at not making sense.  My alone time has given me the opportunity to make sense of why I have never been able to maintain friendships with other girls very well.

The Best Fights Are The Ones Where You Are Pitted Against Yourself

Published February 22, 2012 by jrm17

Sometimes I only go see movies or watch new television shows because a character or actor from another work I like is in it.  Sometimes this is a really smart thing to do and sometimes I am force to think about the stupid decisions I make.  This is the reason I will most likely be going to see John Carter since I love me some Taylor Kitsch as Tim Riggins.  I was thinking about this as I saw the ad for John Carter and decided to compare my favorite characters against their counterparts.

Me? In the Kitchen? This might not be good.

Published February 20, 2012 by jrm17

I spent this weekend in the kitchen and I’m not quite sure if I’m proud of myself for trying new recipes and succeeding according to everyone else or mad at myself for trying new recipes (I’m pretty sure they were all lying to me).  I’m not sure what I was thinking when I decided to try my hand at cooking without Michael since he usually fix my screw ups but I did it.  Read the rest of this entry →

Vampire Diaries Spinoff Show? It’s Either Going to Be the Most Brilliant Thing Ever or Massively Crash and Burn

Published February 17, 2012 by jrm17

I have some potentially fantastic news:  there is a Vampire Diaries companion show in the talks on the CW.  I say potentially because there isn’t much known since the show is still in the development stage but they were hoping to have it on the pilot up for consideration in the 2011-2012 season (Guess that didn’t work out for them).  I also say potentially because of The Secret Circle.  You see, I love the books (They are written by the same author and the show is done by the same people) but I just cannot hold my focus on the show.  I try every week but I haven’t been able to completely become enthralled in it).

There’s A Right Way To Propose and This Is Not It

Published February 15, 2012 by jrm17

I’ve seen some pretty stupid and pretty awesome proposals throughout my time spending hours in front of the TV and YouTube but I think this one out does them all.  I was on BuzzFeed when I came across this article talking about the new Pizza Hut proposal package you can buy.  Yeah, Pizza Hut proposal.  Being someone who will fight for the last piece of pizza, I’m not sure if I find this slightly disturbing or slightly awesome (Okay, it’s Flacco’s favorite so I’m going with worst proposal ever.  Get me some Domino’s and we’ll talk).
