make my day

One day I had an extremely long day at school.

Like, over 9 hours.

Feeling exhausted, I made my way home and up the four flights of stairs to my apartment.

Only to find this:

A Valentine gift from my parents!

Complete with a pink balloon, a bag of chocolate and cookies, and a sweet note from both of them.

Just what I needed after today.

I have the best parents ever.

College can get lonely, especially around Valentine's, but the simple gift was a nice reminder that they love me and they will always be my Valentine's.

It's not so lonely anymore.

One roommates made Texas Roadhouse rolls. Awesome. I decided to try one when I got home from my trip.

My roommate suggested I heat the roll up so that it would taste delicious.

I put it on for 1 minute. And didn't think anything of it.


I opened my microwave and the smoke billowed out. I had successfully blackened the roll, burning the flour on top? That's the hypothesis.

To avoid setting off our fire alarm at 1 in the morning, there was some desperate fanning and lots of laughter. Needless to say, the roll was as hard as rock.

I tried again. As it turns out, 10 seconds is a perfect amount of time.

Yeah, I'm a gourmet cook, in case you were wondering.

when you need a laugh

The first time I watched this, I had tears streaming down my face I was laughing
so hard. I have found in the past weeks that I watch it repeatedly if I need to
laugh or smile. Sometimes, my roommates and I imitate the faces (noises included).
Don't act like your not jealous.

Raisin Bran and Research Papers

Once upon a time, it was about 2 in the morning. And instead of finishing my research paper for English, I'm blogging. And listening to oldies, currently, Bon Jovi. Oh, and eating Raisin Bran. Can I just say that it is a terrible shame that I hated this cereal for 18 years of my life! It is delicious and the perfect cure for the midnight munchies (just in case you wanted to know).

I am the worst blogger ever. I blog irregularly and at obscure times. I'll work harder.

Research paper? Bring it on.
