oh man why is 8am so rough? because i had to get up at 6. i am so tired. this blows.
spring break is 5 days away, meanwhile my spring break beach body is like 4 months away haha ahh, no that funny.
if i ate nothing between now and sunday and ran 5 miles on top of doing a cardio workout everyday then maybe. so since my relationship with food is so strong, and i just made becca's favorite chocolate chip cookies with my super secret ingredient then it looks like that is simply not happening.

All of you should listen to this album, thanks. its actually one of the few i can just start at number 1 and at least make it to 6 without stopping. And plus i get to see them in august with lily allen. but shh, we arent telling anyone.

I still have Econ reading, Sport Comm reading, and "school researching" for Agency 7 aka bug chad to send me Paoli's info ;). Maybe even send my lovie ms. rolston a fb message to londontown. we will see.

I missed out on Flight of The Conchords tickets for Little 500. this makes me :(

i have not gotten a single thing done today.

but I did get Adobe Suite FO FREE from IU yayy. that means CS4, InDesign, etc... I'm so excited!!!

i'm feelin kinda girly lately, maybe its because last night we drank white zin and watched Maid Of Honor :) :) haha so now i wanna get a white tree and pink ornaments/pink xmas lights.

so for my secret santa, they say they like elephants/dogs/and art. and its ~$10 limitish. so i found this really cute elephant keychain that isnt cheesy on etsy for like 3, but i wanna ship it directly to her, and at the same time send other things, theres no way i can get it here first and then there in time since i waited so long. so i think im just gonna go ahead and send random things and random times then send her a message later. i know she just got a new laptop so im thinking about maybe a cute case? but otherwise i have no idea since its pretty vague.
