Seriously, Kylie. what have you done with your summer?

I'm going to tell you what I've done with my summer so far via pictures.

This is for all my fellow ADD comrades who need to be constantly visually stimulated to pay attention.

This is me at work. I spend 75% of my summer time working. That's the way poor girls are. As you can see, I don't have time for a lot of things because work keeps me so busy.... Do you think my free hand water color looks like me?

I was a bridesmaid for the ever so lovely Olivia Benson. I love Olivia, she was kind of like my first friend in college. This was also my first experience being a bridesmaid and seeing how Mormon weddings are done. Olivia's was the best, hands down.

I moved! I went from ghettofabulous apartment to a lovely townhouse. Tom also brought me flowers because he loves me. It made my house feel home-ier. here is a shoutout to you~ I hope it makes you feel uber special <3

Meet Tobias. aka, Toby. I told myself that Truffle needed a friend.... so I got her a boyfriend (and maybe some other friends......), don't worry they aren't expecting any babies any time soon, and in the meantime, I get to watch modern family and cuddle it up with him

Some people think I am crazy, but look at that face..... is that a face you can say no to?

he is kind of the bread to my butter. oh, and he is a show bunny that placed in nationals. beat that, fellow pet owners.

this is some more evidence of how hard I work during my 8 hour shift job. I just wanted to reinforce this ideology you all have of me as being this hardworking girl~ essentially a machine, a canvas painting machine. the picture on the left is a Unicorn for my roommate Chelsea, painted in the colors of her bedroom, because I am just so nice. The second one is symbolic, and no, you don't get to know of what.

This is proof that I paint this canvasas and don't buy them from a street artist. I also wanted to show you what my desk usually looks like.


uhmmm...... truffle's "other" friend.... This is Basil. She has a twin named Aspen. I couldn't say no, they are cute little babies and they are twins, and we share the same birthday~ we will probably have a joint birthday party. Oh and they look like Siamese cats... but they are rabbits. my life is kind of awesome.

I went to visit the delightful Amy in Queen Creek, and of course doughnuts were along the way..... I lied.... they were on the way after we made a detour. The point is that you can't go through summer without a krispy kreme.

oh, and this was my partner in crime~ Mason. besties since highschool.

this is kind of how our relationship is. blurred chaos.

dress-up. I don't really feel like I need to explain how this is an element of summer. Boredom, excessive amount of cosmetics, and my 13 year old sister. Recipe for pure love and an awesome new look that will make all the other girls jealous.

I visited my parents and my long lost cat, Chloe. I'm not going to lie, I love cats. I do, even though I'm allergic to them. I love this one particularly because she is the last living relic from my childhood, she is almost upon her 14th birthday. look at how cute she is, can't you tell she loves me?

I went to my little sister's 8th grade graduation (its a big deal). Then I decided to dye some strips of my hair red. The lady was trying to explain colors to me and apparently I looked really dumb, until I told her I had never dyed my hair and all the hair dressers came over and touched my hair and freaked out. Apparently real blondes are hard to find?

I created a tree to beautify my windowless call center. I made it with love, and forced my co-worker Vance to cut out the leaves haha. I am so devious. this is me embracing my creation.

I bought a desk off of craigslist. actually.... I bought two.... I'm also a full fledged craigslist addict. anyways, the desk depicted here is over 100 years old. Once upon a time, it was a piano now it is a desk that has 2 secret compartments and it was FREE. the second desk was a used IKEA desk that is a 6ft long monster that I'm using for its functionality. pff.... and you didn't think I was logical.

I reconnected with my innerchild and discovered I can still fit in shopping carts while on a shopping trip with Chelsea and Allen at Walmart, the adult playground.

this next picture doesn't really count.... because it technically happened during the school year. HOWEVER, I feel like it is cool enough to be included in this post. if you notice that little brown spot just past this giant tortoise.... it is a rabbit... ya. I know. Who knew the Phoenix Zoo featured the tortoise and the hare? Chelsea, you are awesome for getting me in for free.

essentially this summer has been hum-drum, adulty, and non-vacationy~

but, at least I don't have to sit in a lecture hall, eh?

summer non-vacation.

So I have come to the realization that College is really just high school 5.0. High school... without adult supervision. oh and did anyone mention that you have to pay for your books and to go to class and living accommodations? Ya, I bet they left that one out.

You find your little niche of friends, you ditch class on occassion (which is more stupid to do in College. DON'T FOLLOW MY EXAMPLE), you eat pizza a lot. Your different subjects are taught by different people~ and by different, I mean really different. I will give you an example of what I am talking about:

"tewday, wi ar stuting recrystaliization. Ahnd how dit you doo dis?"
uhhh.... I'm sorry, I've spent the last hour trying to figure out your accent and translate it into English... so I have no idea.

future college~ees: stay away from the science aspect of education, the dialects found in that department almost take a degree to decipher. It's ASU's secret plan so that you never make it into medical school.

alright, steering away from the whole "OMGIPOTENTIALLYSOUNDLIKEARACIST" tangent, I'm going to take you back to the first paragrah. Don't worry, my little lazies, I'll just repeat myself. PAYING FOR COLLEGE.

Sure, we got scholarships. they pay the big bills, the books, occasionally some toys. However, most of us don't quite have the funds to pay for the housing, the food, the car, the insurance, yada yada yada. Welcome to adulthood. Where exactly am I going with this? summer vacation. In college it is a joke for some (like me). It's essentially the time where you work full time and people wonder where you disappeared off to. Some crazies actually take summer school. dreadful. I'm all about beaches, adventuring, traveling to Europe..... I was suppose to go to Italy this summer, had a place to stay and everything~ all I needed was to pay for a plane ticket and food. But I couldn't, because I have to work, so when I am actually going to school I won't have to work full time..... Why do I have to be so logical?

BAH. and then I blew my second chance, my sister is going to Peru. My roommate is currently in Peru.... I could have met up and established my presence in South America. Once again, My logic got in the way and I did mathmatical figures to see if I could afford to do it, and the answer..... was.... no. Its too much of a financial stretch and I would rather not put myself in that predicament if something were to go south.

Eff you summer vacation with your false promises.
someone abduct me and we can go to Sedona or something.

The beginning.

alas, I have started yet another blog. Is any one really surprised? ..... ya, I'm not either. I have an addiction. This is blog number 4, I just prefer to keep some portals dedicated to certain things. This just so happens to be the blog to capture my daily musings~ from a college student's perspective. Take my hand, or just read my blog, and I will lead you through life, poor, stressed, sleep deprived, and very much alive.
