On Wednesdays I confess...

Its that time again...

I confess....

- Right now and in the spirit of honestly I will tell you all that I will be MIA for the next 3 weeks. I am hoping to get some posts scheduled so I don't disappear completely but I have 2 exams before I even get to study for Finals so I have to spend every free moment of my time studying. #adultingsucks #pleasedontmakemestudy

- Like Stephanie @Not Entirely Perfect I am very much looking forward to the summer season and all the fun events but I am super stressed about the amount of time I will actually have to do all the fun things! #firstworldproblems #cansummerbeherealready

- Being back on the low carb/crap free diet makes me soooo grumpy. Seriously. Just vicious. I am normally so nice and patient but remove the sweets and the yummy delicious carbs and you get to see a whole new side of me. #lowcarbmakesmeevil #idkillforcake

- Hate to get all political but the fact that it looks like our choices for President might very well be Trump or Clinton mystifies me. Like seriously people...what is going on in this country, 
does no one actually give a shit?? 
#politicsmakemesick #democracyatitsfinest 

- I was so excited in my quest for a new apartment and the fact that I found one I loved that I forgot that I have no furniture or any of the usual household items! Moving so much and trying to keep from having to much to move each time has kept me from owning anything besides my bed, tv, clothes and books! 
Eepp! I may be living like a hobo for a bit until I get all the things I need! #beingagrownuphasconsequences 

LMAO i love these! 

That is all I have for you today! Link up and confess!

On Beautiful Weather...

This past weekend was beautiful in Chicago...of course by beautiful I mean it was finally about 50 outside. I wish I could say I did something exciting but really I had a ton of studying & laundry to do. I did manage to make it outside as much as I could though.

Friday night was study & organizing night....Saturday I spent the day doing laundry & studying until The Boyfriend and I went out to dinner, for a walk and then rushed home to watch more Breaking Bad. See the theme here? I am glad we will be done with it before the summer though! Sunday I woke up early and headed to the burbs to visit my family and see my brother in a choir performance..then back home to study! 3 weeks till finals!!! 

So my not so busy weekend in pics...

Delicious Tapas! 

Sunday ride to the burbs with the windows down

Is it Friday yet?

On Stuff & Things...

- I meant to blog more than twice this week I really did. I was driving to class yesterday when I realized I hadn't blogged and it was already Thursday. I wish I was having a more exciting time and that is why I am so busy. nope..not the case. 

- Just found out I got approved for this studio I fell in love with! its a super cute loft set up which is nice so I won't have my couch & bed right next to each other and well below my max price!

- I love these sloth memes...listen they are terrible and creepy and all but I still love them. 

- Its the last stretch of the last stretch I mean the last 3 weeks before finals but anyway...I can taste the freedom of having my evenings back bitches!!! Woooooo!

- Just realized that Lindsey Stirling will be at Lolla on Sunday...looks like I am going for more than one day. Dammit all they just want to take all my money with this 4 days thing!! 

Add school in there and its pretty much my summer

and if you don't know who Lindsey Stirling is then listen listen listen! 

and that is all the stuff I have for you today! I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Currently I've had 3 exams in the last 5 days and two more coming next really I want to tell you I have exciting stuff going on...but I can't. So I thought I'd update you on other goings on instead...

Reading: I got it in my mind that I should re-read Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series. Why did I do that to myself? There are 20 something books in the series!! I haven't read the last 8 before though so there is that. If you like vampires, lycanthropes, sex and other weird preternatural shit you may like these books. Definitely not a YA series though.

Listening to:  Luke Bryan on youtube. The Boyfriend just told me he got me tickets for my birthday so it will be all country all the time...well until I start listening to my Lolla playlist. 

Look at that cutie! 

Watching: Ooh man me & The Boyfriend are in the midst of Breaking Bad and we can't get out. I haven't had much time to watch tv (which you know makes me sad because I am soooo behind on my shows) but we watch this together and it is getting damn good!! I did manage to watch Scandal this past weekend and OMG. WOW. that is all. 

Making: Ugh flash cards for the next exam. Blah. Haha I am also in the process of making some serious organization in my bedroom before I move again so there is that. 

Wishlisting: Another vacation? Actually a  new pair of gym shoes. Maybe they can motivate me to get my ass up at 5:30 to go to the gym? I am also just wishing for spring semester to be done. 4 weeks left bitches!!! 

Cleaning: Oh room. Its a disaster. So much stuff everywhere and I need to get rid of about 50% of it. Spring cleaning on meth! (too much breaking bad for me) 

Posting: I need to post more. I had all these drafts all ready to go and but they need to be edited and photos need to be added so I just kind of gave up and now some of them are not even relevant!! OOps?! As long as I can keep up with Confession Wednesdays you guys will still love me right? Right? 

Tasting: My chocolate tea!! I'm obsessed guys, I don't know what I will do when I run out!! 

What is going on in your life?

On Spring Breaks in Punta Cana..part dos!

Heyo! I said I was going to share the rest of the Punta Cana pics on Thursday...I lied. So here they are!!

Drinking mojitos and listening to the band! 

We decided to take a chocolate making class they offered at a shop in our hotel. I discovered the amazingness of Chocolate tea and ended up buying 3 bags. It tastes like hot chocolate without the milk. It is amazing and I am going to be really sad when its all gone. 

My father & siblings were also in Punta Cana at the same time (our trips overlapped a couple days) We were originally going to do the buggie adventure with them but because of Easter weekend all motorized activities in the country were put on hold so they missed out. My father picked us up from the resort and drove us around Punta Cana a bit so we could see the different locals spots. Then we went to a very well known restaurant Jellyfish and the food was fantastic! Seriously. Apparently a lot of people have weddings there since is right on the beach and very well known. 

Can you see the resemblance?! 

We decided to leave the resort for some more adventure and did a tour with buggies/carts? and a visit to a co-op farm, a beautiful non-touristy beach and a cave with a natural pool. 

It was an awesome trip! I would definitely go back and highly highly recommend the Gran Bahia Principe if you are headed down there!

On Confessions Wednesdays!

OOh man it has been like 2 weeks since I last confessed!

I confess...

- Sometimes I get in these moods where I want to listen to like gangsta rap music. Today was one of those days. I have no idea where it comes from but yea...On my way to work this morning and I'm all "I love bad bitches that's my fucking problem" yep. #don'tfuckwithme #gangstarapbeforework
OMG this is hilarious 

Killing me

- I kind of tuned out to the world while I was on vacation. I didn't check blogs, I didn't check school anything I refused to do anything that even remotely looked like work. It was fantastic...BUT the catching up since I got back in ahhhhhhhh. #pleasedontmakemeadult #ineedanothervacation

- I moved into a different apartment last Friday. I'd been there a couple times but it is not until you actually move into a place that you realize what you don't like. Soooo now I am going to have to start looking again because no gracias. I feel really bad because it is a friend I'm living with but she definitely knows I'm paying too much for the quality of place. Ugh. Its so frustrating to find a decently priced place!! 
#chicagorentsucks #whycantijustmovetomyparents 

- Do you know what happens when you do nothing but eat and drink all day for 5 days? You get fat. Yep. I am seriously pretty sure I've never been as heavy as I am right now and I need to get on it. and still I was shoveling chocolate covered pretzels last night and had a bagel for breakfast. #FML #dietsdontworkome #cantijustbefatforever 

OMG i think this every time I take any class. The Barre locations by me are overrun with tiny girls in their lululemon gear and I get so anxious if I don't see at least one other fat girl in the class! 

-  My mom & sister were rushing me to get back home the day I was flying back. I asked why and they said they feel like I am getting that itch to move away again. I confess..they were not wrong. I miss living abroad so much. So so much. With all the stress i've been feeling with work and school i have definitely had to repress the idea of just picking up and going again. I am sure The Boyfriend would not be a happy camper. #sorrynotsorry #imissthesimplelife 

I think that is all I have for you today! What are you confessing? Link up!
