Almost there!

Saturday morning marked my second final, francais, which leaves only my English final on Wednesday. Oh spring break, you are so close!

I’ve been spending a ton of time in the library as of late. You know it must be dead week when the college library smells of sweat and tears there are no open computers, and still full of students at 10 pm. Other than studying, taking finals and general shenanigans,

1.I enjoyed a romp to Tar jay the other day…

Spent too much time and money on things I didn’t really need, but hey, it counts as retail therapy, right? ;P

new trash bin for my room, envelope and little notebook, gum, face wash sheets, ff whip cream, hot choc mix, dried tropical fruit x2

2. Took full advantage of the gorgeous weather we had with a power walk at my fav local lake yesterday afternoon,

Gorg. Swoon.

3. Babysat Saturday night. Hello cash money, free food and catching up with The Incredibles 😉

4. Enjoyed sa’more cereal creations,

CIA(nutella)J, after most of it had been consumed! Forgot to snap pic! W/ almond milk!

This one was a winner! Fro berry/cherry mix with pb puffs, TJs fiber and kashi honey sunshine, carob chips, almond milk, spoonful of WCW pb and garnished with a random grape and strawberry! YUM

5. Spent yesterday afternoon w/ my mom. She was so sweet to come over for a visit, a little shopping and to take me to dinner. I was really excited to show her Sushiland! She’d never been and obvs needed to experience the magic that Sushiland embodies!

Mmmmmm, sushi!

She loved it! Per usual, we got a bunch of plates to share plus miso soup and a small seaweed salad. I love going there because everything is so cheap and fresh, which makes it more fun/easy to try new things! Plus the sushi chefs are starting to remember me, ha! 😉 Best of the night was probably the seared salmon, and worst was probably this sauce-covered oyster plate. Oh well, you win some and lose some!

I am so happy to be done with two of my classes and leaving my French final Saturday, I was feeling really good. I spent some time outside, visited the farmer’s market and took a long walk… After babysitting Sat night, I hung out with z boy, had an adventures… I also caught up with friends this weekend, and experienced this for the first time,

Wow, is all I can say. Really, no words. I loved it. Hated it. Everything in between. Overall, I think I need to watch it again, but maybe I’m giving my brain time to digest first? Haha. I just kept thinking it must have taken forever to make! Apparently Gaga is also getting a lot of media attention on her really thin in the video. Thoughts? I agree she doesn’t look healthy but I don’t think that’s the only negative message being sent to viewers watching this video.

Well, I’m off to sieze the day! I don’t have any classes or finals…until Wednesday! I have to go pick up some pictures I ordered, and think I might also take a walk in the sunshine…maybe a trip to TJs is in order too? 🙂

Have a lovely day!

Les Questions!

What did you do this weekend?

What do you think of Gaga’s new video? And Beyonce’s role? What about her appearance, do you think it is sending bad body image messages to her audience?

Do you live in a city or more suburban area? I live in the city, now that I’m at college and love it but this weekend, at the park it took FOREVER to find parking! I’ve noticed this–that while I love having everything be more convenient and being central…so does everyone else! Are you a big-city or small-town person?

I’m Off! Later! ❤

  1. I went for a long overdue visit to my grandparetns for the weekend and am now on a week of college to START MY study, your super lucky you’re nearly done!!. I live in a small town, but have always gone to school in the city (1 hour train ride), i used to love the small town, but as i grow up im itching to get out of it. Hope u have a good spring break and good luck with yo last exams!

  2. I just saw that video for the first time today, and even though it was cool, I don’t think it’s as awesome as all the hype says! She does look pretty thin, now that you mention it…in Cosmo I remember the reporter saying that all she ate was a side salad with no dressing, or something. Sad, I can actually see her falling into the Hollywood “stick” trap because she’s publicly said fame is all she cares about.

    I grew up in the suburbs, and go to college in the city, and I love them both!! I like to have both to balance the other out 🙂

  3. Sorry you have to be spending so much time in the library! EEK! But all that studying will pay off, smarty pants 😉

  4. I have not seen this new GaGa video but I do love her. She is so unique and creative and her beats/music is pretty good as well.

    Good luck on the rest of your studies — ahh I hate studying so much.

    I have lived in a city my whole life!

  5. I love Gaga. I think she’s not afraid to take risk and is such an amazing innovative artist!

  6. Cereal in a Nutella Jar!? No way! Heh.. too bad I am slightly allergic to hazelnuts. I guess I will have to live vicariously through you on this one.

    I am most definitely a small town girl.. I have lived ‘out in the sticks’ for my entire life.. but I LOVE being in big cities because they are so exciting!

  7. I adore lady gaga and I have since her first single back in 2008… so obviously I love the video too. She is unique and creative.. I am completely intrigued by her. I think that she has gotten thinner but she has to be healthy to dance like she does and sing at the same time at her concerts.. which I have heard are absolutely amazing.

    Oh and adding nutella to a cereal mess? pure genius! love it!! xoxo

  8. I love Gaga, but I think the airbrushing techniques they used on her and Beyonce are a little obvious… it’s obviously a great song and they are both beautiful women- it’s more of a societal problem, I believe!

    Glad your spring break is close!

  9. I love love love lady gaga i think she is amazing! I love those funky monkey chips from target I just bought them myself the other day 🙂
