Another Candle on the Cake

Hello Lovelies.
As y'all are reading this, I'm officially 19 years old.

Like I'm legally an adult in the state of Alabama and on top of that have been an "adult" for a year now.

And as I'm getting ready for another year of life, I've come to realize how much everything has changed.
This time a year ago I was fresh out of high school, ready to get to Tuscaloosa, planning on being a sorority, the whole nine yards.
And then life came and laughed in my face.
Year 18 was great one though.
I've grown up a lot.
And I still have a lot of growing to do.

For the first time in my life, this birthday just seems like another day.
Which sounds sad but at the same time I feel like life has taught be so much in this past year, I don't one special day to celebrate it.

Don't get me wrong, I still love cake and presents.
I am still a selfish teenager.
But I've come to realize I don't need this day to be all about me.
And I'm ok with that.

I don't know.
I guess I'm done rambling.

Happy Flag Day everyone and Happy Birthday to me.

Love y'all.

Talk to you soon,

“But if you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed." - Chuck Palahniuk

Hello Lovelies!
All through life we're always being told that we're being prepped for the next step.
Elemntary school for Middle School.
Middle School for High School.
High School for College.
And College for the Real World.

And heaven forbid you try to stray off this path.

I'm 18, almost 19, years old.
I just finished my first year at University.
And if last semester was any indication, I have not the slightest idea what I want to do with my life.

Which sends me into an absolute panic.
I'm one of these people that has always had a plan to an extent
And now that I'm reaching this point that I'm questioning my plan, it scares the hell out of me.

People always make it seem like it's so easy to just pack a bag, plan a flight and take off.
And then you can figure it out as you go and when you come back everything will fall into place.
And I wish it was that easy.
But it's not.

But I've decide that I'm going to stop worrying about the future, because that's going to happen whether I sit around panicking about it or not.

My goal is to start making a list of things I want to for me.
And if they fail, well they fail.
But if in the end, I figure out what I want and I end up truly happy, then it'll all be worth it.

Love y'all.

Slacking Party of One

Hey Lovelies
So I did it again.
2 days without blogging for the 30 Day Snap.
I wish I could have some amazing pictures to post but I don't.
All I've done is work and school and work.
I'm not  very exciting.

I'll try to be better.

Love y'all!

A Picture Speaks A Thousand Words: 30 Day Snap Day 7

Hello Lovelies!
Happy Sunday!

Hope y'all have had a great day.

I've been super lazy.
Like took a nap at 4 and had cake for dinner lazy.

But I did empty the suitcase I brought home from college.
A month ago.

Momma is off to Birmingham for a few days and needed the suitcase so now I have a large pile of clothes on my bed.

It happens.

I'm off to watch a movie. (I'd tell you which one but it was one of my birthday presents and that's coming later in my haul post)

Love y'all!

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words: 30 Day Snap Day 6

Hello Lovelies!
Happy Saturday!
I hope y'all have had a great day!

Mine has been pretty good.
Momma is going out of town tomorrow through Tuesday and then Daddy and Ryland are going to track camp Wednesday through Saturday.

Which leads me today's post.

Which I like to call, Pre-Birthday and the start of birthday week

We went to Sam's and got a cake since Daddy and Ryland will be out of town on my actual birthday (FRIDAY!!!)
And is it not the cutest thing?
like so adorbs.

And these are the presents sitting in the living room.
Mocking me.

Except I kind of got to open half of them...
And I'm not going to tell y'all what I got just yet.

Because I'm either going to do one big post or make a haul video.
But I'm pretty happy with what I got so far.
There's still several left though..

I'm spoiled.

Also to anyone that follows me on Tumblr. I'm sorry about last night.
I'd say never again but we all know it'll happen.

Love y'all!

Have a great day!

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words: 30 Day Snap Day 5

It's been a long day.
And I don't even have any good picture because no phones on the sales floor.
And all I did today is work.

So I'll give you a post work selfie instead.

Middle one is from yesterday.

Also if you know me then when you look at that cup, yes you are right.
But this is public so I'm going to say anything else.

Love y'all.

A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words: 30 Day Snap Day 4

Hello Lovelies!

Biology is always better when a cute boy brings in doughnuts for the class.

Now I'm getting ready to grill out for dinner, burgers and steak, yum yum!

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words: 30 Day Snap Day 2&3

Hello Lovelies!
Much like normal, I'm a day late and a dollar short.
Or simple put, I'm a bad blogger who forgot to post her picture for the 30 Day Snap yesterday.
So today y'all will be getting 2 pictures instead of one!

This was me last night and tonight.
I actually enjoy school but these online classes might be the death of me.
I guess it's a good learning experience but as someone who has never skipped class (well once but we're not talking about that) being forced to go to class actually means I get my work done while this I keep going, I'll just get to it later and then spend too much time on tumblr.
Time to buckle down and get a lot of reading done.

Now this looks like the ugliest stack maybe ever.
But it's not.
It's work. (featuring my watch)
I spent my first day of work out on the floor today.
We're getting ready for inventory so I'm counting fabric.
Which is what the rubber bands are for.
6 hours of counting fabric.
At least it'll be nice once pay day rolls around.

And so yeah, that's about it.
I'm bloody tired but have 3 chapters of Religion homework to go read.
Procrastination at it's finest.

Love y'all!

30 Day Snap: Day 1

Today I started my first day of work, ever at Walmart.

And it was actually really good and I enjoyed it.

I don't really have a lot else to say.

Long time, no talk

Hello Lovlies,
It's been a very long time since I've posted on here.
Hell, it was the middle of September last time I bothered.
And looking back on that, it's like holy shit crap was I naive at what freshman year of college would really be like.
And it hasn't even been a year since then.
Like a year ago, I would have never imagined my life would be anything at all like it is now.
When I last posted in September, I don't think I could imagine life to happen as it did freshman year.

And I guess it sounds like I just have a lot of untold stories.

So let's see if we can feel in some holes.

First semester was good.
I made some really good friends, classes were pretty simple, you know all that fun stuff.
Football games, freshman things, that sort of stuff.

Second semester things sort of went to crap.
I had two very big breakdowns, which included:
  •  me thinking about dropping out of school
  • looking at every major that UA has to offer in order to chancge from chemical engineering
  • nearly failing two classes
  • Somehow managing to pass both those classes (along with all my others)
  • Making a few of probably the best of friends I've had in the longest time
  • Not getting hired for a co-op
  • Realizing that while my life wasn't going how my high school self had planned, that it was still ok.

And now we're here.
I survived my freshman year of college.
I have an unhealthy obsession to Tumblr
I'm still majoring in Chemical Engineering but have added a History minor
I'm on the brink of my 19th birthday.
I'm taking summer classes at Northeast.
I got hired at Walmart for the summer
I've come to realize that while I love Scottsboro and it's always be my hometown, I've outgrown it

While I'm scared of what the future might hold, I'm actually so excited to see what might happen.

I'm not going to make any promises that I'll actually use this but I'm going to try.

Because maybe one day it'll be worth to have this record of my life. (Which is the only reason I'm not deleting everything else on here and starting over)

Love y'all.
