10 Lessons I Learned at My 22nd Birthday Bash

1. You know how you’re not supposed to mix beer and liquor? Yeah, there’s a reason for that.

2. Stop drinking at least 2 drinks before you feel really drunk. Does that make sense?

3. Don’t take consecutive shots.

4. Take your time drinking the alcohols.

5. Maybe aim for a garbage can instead of the border of the sidewalk when you finally vomit. No cops will come up to you and your friend and say “I can’t have her doing that there.”

6. Maybe try NOT to hug the stranger that looks like Jesus who just gave you a full bottle of water. He doesn’t really want to touch your vomity ass.

7. Never drink that much again.

8. You will suffer a 24 hour hangover and it will be extremely unpleasant and you will have to go in to work feeling like death.

9. No matter how many times you puke, and you think it’s the end, it’s not.

10. The entire bar will cheer for you when you puke on the sidewalk, though. +10 humor points for you.

I’m 22 and It’s Weird

Yesterday was my birthday and despite it being completely different from any other year in terms of celebration, I really enjoyed it.

Usually I have a pool party with all my friends. This year I didn’t do that, nor am I going to do it. Partying at the bars this weekend will commence, however. Instead, I spent the day by myself mostly. I did HIIT running, picked up my cake and then went to the gym. The rest of the day was rather uneventful – showered, went shopping and bought myself a birthday dress, and then came home and spent far too much time on Tumblr. I topped it off with 2 consecutive episodes of Borgia, which of course, were the highlight of my day.

I felt really invincible yesterday, to be honest. Idk what it is about my birthday, but it always has the power to make me feel really good about life in general. I’m also the kind of person that treats my birthday like an international holiday.



Mark Ryder is Insatiably Sexy


Like for real you guys, omfg. Last night I watched 2 episodes in row because I couldn’t contain my excitement and tonight I watched another because I decided a two hour movie = less time for sleep, but a 1 hour episode of Borgia would make no one upset.

The scene at the end of the Pentecost episode though, omg. Dying. I’m dying you guys.

I think I need to read up more on real life Cesare and Lucrezia to find out if they actually fucked or what. I JUST WANT THEM TO BE TOGETHER, THERE IS SO MUCH SEX HAPPENING. (Not literally, BUT IT NEEDS TO OMG).


In other news, my birthday is on Wednesday and the weather forecast says it’s going to be really shitty and rainy that day. I kinda want to go to the zoo, but not if it’s going to downpour of me all day. I’ll probably stay cooped up in the house watching movies/trying to pace myself on Borgia and eating birthday cake in my birthday girl underwear. TRUE STORY.


Happy 4th!

I really dislike waking up any time past 10:30. I think I woke up at ~11-11:30 today. But I also went to bed at like 3:30 in the morning. Thankfully, it was a pretty productive day.

I went shopping with my mom (she bought me the Nike shoes I wanted as my early birthday present!) and then came home and helped her cook by making the salad. Then I dyed fabric, and attempted to dye a semi-gray dress dark red. It didn’t work. I think it needs a bleach bath first.

Then I decided it was finally time to clean out my little bookcase full of books and spray paint. I was going to spray paint the inside gold and the outside white, but I decided it looked legit as all gold. I’m waiting for that to dry overnight in the garage and then I’ll be able to put my books back and have more room for reorganization. I’ve got a huge bag full of books to donate.

I also went to Chili’s for the first time ever with Krista and Jordyn. It was pretty good. We went up to Lamphere Hill after to watch fireworks and that was kinda cool. We had a literal 360 view of fireworks from our city and surrounding cities. Bugs kept flying at my face.

Overall, not a bad 4th of July.
