Update

Dang. A whole week without blogging. haha I guess I should update my blog a little. Finished up with finals and all that and now I'm back home :)
For the summer I am going to be working at my moms coffee stand and also another job so today I  am going to be searching for a job at a coffee stand in town, then I'm doing laundry and sitting outside. Since Ive been home Ive been waking up at 9:30 or earlier and if feels really good to get my days started earlier than normal. :)
DAY EIGHTY-NINE: Are you self aware?
Yes i think so. I know what kind of person I am and I think I know how people perceive me.


DAY NINETY: Write a letter to a close friend.
I pick Rachel because she is the person i haven't seen in the longest time.
Dear Rachel,
I haven't even seen you since Ive been home. Last night you texted me saying you were craving toast. I hope you got your toast. I think I'm going to text you right now and see what you are doing today and maybe you will go to lunch with me. :)
I love you and you are my best friend. I'm very glad to be home so i can hang out with you! :)
Love,
Erin

DAY NINETY-ONE: Name a book you read in class that wasn't entirely awful.
From last year, I can't name one because they were all awful. lol I know at some time of my highschool career I read a good book but I can't even think of a book title right now.

DAY NINETY-TWO: What you have learned just from attending your school.
Honestly, I have never learned more than what I have in this year of school at WSU. I have learned so much more about myself, my career, living on my own, dealing with issues that I have never come across. I have learned so many new things just from attending WSU. I'm very excited to go back and continue with my career and keep learning new things about myself. :)

DAY NINETY-THREE: What about the opposite sex you can't understand.
Well boys are pretty simple most of the time. or at least its usually easy to understand there thoughts. haha but what I don't understand is why boys can't think more like girls and understand us. haha

DAY NINETY-FOUR: Do you keep your thoughts to yourself?
Sometimes. It depends whos around to talk to and it also depends what the situation is. If I have something to say to someone and its a compliment or something good I usually tell them. :)

DAY NINETY-FIVE: Describe the weather occurring right now.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! :) Its sunny and its already 58 degrees!! :) I am definately going outside today to read or sleep or something. haha

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Happy Late Mother's Day to all the mommys!

Monday

FELICITY'S BIRTHDAY IS TODAY! :) Happy Birthday to my cute niece Felicity!


but on a bad note,
Finals Week. ugh.

So finals start today. Luckily I don't have a final today. I just have to turn in a paper tomorrow, turn in my english portfolio on wednesday and then I have a final on thursday and a final on friday and I'm out of here. This week is a bittersweet week for everyone. I'm sad to leave Pullman but at the same time I can't wait to be home for summer.
Today's schedule:
-Shower
-Tan
-Pick up my sweatshirt from Ellen
-Return some of my textbooks
-Write my english reflection paper
-Edit my english portfolio
-Write my GenEd paper
-Extra Credit movie
I will be up all night tonight doing homework and getting ready for my finals. I'm a little stressed out but that means that summer is only getting closer.

DAY EIGHTY-EIGHT: Does money equal happiness?
Honestly, in my opinion, it can. You have to have money to pay for almost everything and that will give you happiness but if I had to choose between love and money, I would choose love. Money isn't everything but I do think in some ways it makes people happier.

Sunday

Yesterday I had a very lazy Sunday. Ive had the worst allergies the last two days. Tanner and I rented "Due Date" and "Dinner for Schmucks". I was a little disappointed with Due Date. I thought it was going to be much funnier than it was but it was still ok. I love Dinner for Schmucks though! Its sooooo funny in a rude way. haha


DAY EIGHTY-SEVEN: What are your favorite smells?
I have so many favorite smells.
- fresh cut grass. (i know kinda weird. haha) the smell of new books. (also very weird. lol) the smell of the ocean. coffee, rain, flowers, oranges, the smell of abercrombie & fitch and hollister. (I couldn't help it. haha) sun tan lotion, bacon
hmm. I can't really think of any others but I will write them down later if I think of any more. :)

Saturday

if you say Saturday over and over, it sounds like a really weird word and you don't know what you are saying anymore. lol

I had a wonderful Saturday and a pretty great Saturday night considering it was my last weekend in Pullman. :( but only for a while! :)

DAY EIGHTY-SIX: What's the difference between living and existing?
Existing is when you are just alive to go through life and get it over with. Living is when you are doing the things that make you happy and you enjoy life and live it to its full potential.

TGIF

So I am the worst blogger ever. haha that's ok though. I made up for the week I haven't blogged. And on my defense I have had the busiest week ever! It's dead week and I've had sooooo much to do to get ready for the end of the year. Ive been busy tanning, watching extra credit movies for a class, writing papers, finishing things for Gamma Phi and I finally got to register but I'm nowhere near being done with my schedule but so far I have Math, Human Development 205, AMT 108, and AMT 210. I still need a gen ed class and I don't know about taking math and hd at the same time cause I heard its really hard. I also need to take Entomology 101 but its all full. :( but I will get it figured out. I'm so excited! My parents told me that we might go to Disneyland this summer so that made me extremely happy! haha I don't think anyone loves Disneyland like I do.

I can't believe I only have one more class left for the year... It doesn't seem real that I will be on Summer Break in 7 days!! :) I'm so excited to work and make money, camp, lay in the sun, go running in the mornings, AHHH! I'm so excited!!!

So last night we had our mom dot sneak kind of. haha I finished my paddle but I forgot to take a picture of it. :( I think I'm gunna ask Ellen for a picture but I also think that's a little weird. ahah
Also yesterday we got our packet for recruitment! We have all our outfits planned out which means lots and lots of shopping this summer!! :)

DAY EIGHTY-FIVE: If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
hmm.. I think my message would have to do with living life. or going green or something like that. I had public speaking though so my message will definitely never get across that way.. haha but I would rather worry about what I'm doing with my life instead of other people. It's not my job to tell people how to live. :)

Thursday

DAY EIGHTY-FOUR: Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I think it can be both. Sometimes people cry too much for no reason except attention but like when boys cry I think its strength. Idk. i think if someone is crying there is a reason they are crying so I wouldnt say its a weakness.

Wednesday

DAY EIGHTY-THREE: If you had to teach something, what would you teach?
Well if this question is pertaining to being a teacher in school, i would want to teach graphic design like Melbye or computer and camera stuff like Boole. If I couldn't teach either of these I would teach figure sculpting or some kind of yoga class. :) haha

Tuesday

DAY EIGHTY-TWO: Would you break the law to save a loved one?
Yes of course I would. I can't really think of a senerio that this would apply to though.. haha but of course I would do anything to save someone I loved.

Monday

DEAD WEEK BEGINS.

DAY EIGHTY-ONE: Your biggest fear.
Clowns. O my. I hate clowns soooooo much. Im beginning to get over my fear. I dont cry anymore when I see them. I remember in eighth grade Jordan Beeman and Jason would change my computer screen to a scary clown before computer class and I would sign on and get extremely mad and scared.
Another fear I have is spiders. I dont really like spiders at all. Ive had too many scary encounters with them. haha

Easter Sunday

Happy Late Easter!

 Sunday my parents came down for the day and took tanner and I to lunch at new garden. YUMMIEST chinese food ever. then we drove to moscow to find out that everything was closed for easter so on the way back we stopped by the bears. A little bit off campus we have a place were students study bears, cows and sheep. But the bears were soooo awesome! I wish I could work with them! there were like 7 adult bears and 2 or 3 little cubs. They were the cutest things ever!!  after the bears we just drove around a little more and then they took a bunch of our stuff home that we packed. 

It was so nice to see my parents on Easter. :) 

DAY EIGHTY: One of your favorite childhood memories.
I have so many good memories growing up with Jonathan, Kim, Rachel and Ashley. 
I always had so much fun with jonathan. he was my best friend since I was 2. We used to pretend we were characters from Rocket Power when we would jump on the trampoline together. We spent EVERY DAY together. I did a lot of "exploring" other peoples property and pretending I was something really cool. When we would ride in cars together we would pretend there were buttons on the back seats that would change the car into whatever we wanted and we thought of every button from a drink maker to turning the car into a submarine. I miss those days with Jonathan.

Saturday

Friday night Jade and Kristi came to Pullman! Jordan was busy doing initiation things so Kristi came to hang out with us! we had a really fun night except this was the first night of the whole year where there was literally NOTHING going on. lol but we went to tanners live out and hung out with the guys there, then we went to another live out where my twin was! and they had a bon fire so we hung out by the fire all night and hung out with the guys there :) It was a great night and when we got home we wanted to order pizza so we called Pizza Perfection and asked them if they had any deals. They said that some people ordered two monster pizzas but they meant to order from moscow. So the guy offered us a monster pizza for 13 bucks when they are normally 40. At the time we didnt realize how big a monster pizza actually was. This is what we ended up with.


Poor kristi could only handle half of a piece..
these pieces were so big i had to fold it in half to fit it in the microwave.
So saturday Jade and I got up and went tanning, and went to walmart, then we went to some block parties! it was so nice outside! I even got to wear shorts! :) We partied all day and then went to our date dash :) it was a good day!

DAY SEVENTY-NINE: Why do you feel as though people judge others?
I feel like people judge other people for a few reasons. most of the time it is just because they are jealous of what other people have. but i dont think its always out of jealousy. I mean I judge people and I honestly can't tell you why. Maybe its because I get bored, sometimes its because that person has done something to hurt me or make me feel bad so I guess I feel like I need to find their flaws to make it right, (even though I know its not right.) sometimes its out of jealousy but when it is I can admit it. I try not to judge people anymore and I try to remove the negative thoughts.

It's Earth Day!

Earth Day


Today my best friend Jade comes! and Kristi will be here too! :) I have a busy day planned!
Laundry at 10-1 basically, tanning in between, quiz for history of rock and roll at 1, class at 3, jade gets here, more cleaning and packing and moving stuff out of the way, dinner, Kristi comes, then we are getting ready to go out!


DAY SEVENTY-EIGHT: Would you rather people be honest with you, even if it's something not good, or lie to you to make you feel good?
I would rather be told the truth. Nothing good can come from a lie. I always want to know the truth and I would encourage people to tell me the truth unless they are just trying to hurt peoples feelings. then I feel like its unnecessary.
2 WEEKS LEFT!! :)
 
P.S. Don't forget to do something nice for the Earth today! :)

Thursday

Last night i was officially initiated into Gamma Phi Beta. :) I love my sisters!! I had a wonderful time and I can't wait to get my letters from my mom!

Words to describe today. FRUSTRATED. IRRITATED. EXCITED. HAPPY.
As you can tell, Ive had a very mixed up day. lol I'm frustrated and irritated because I'm having trouble with the financial aid office, registrar's office, center for advising, the amt department and my advisor. I have talked to all of these people today and nobody can help me lift a hold from my schedule. I need to register today because classes are filling up and i neeeeed these classes. nobody knows how to help me and they aren't helping at all. All day i was just transferred to another department so they could tell me they will transfer me to another department that knows nothing. gah!
but on a better note, I'm excited to be done with this semester, and I'm excited for summer. obviously cause i talk about it in every post. haha
I'm happy today though because my mom and dad sent me a package that had Easter stuff and money for tanner and i. :) it was super cute and my parents are thinking about coming here on Sunday to see me and take some of my stuff home so i don't have a lot of stuff to take home on the last day. :)) I'm also happy because Jade and Kristi are coming this weekend :) and I have a date dash with Tanner this weekend. :) I just have a lot to be happy about :)

so for the next two hours I'm going to be packing as much as possible. then i have a post initiation workshop thing to go to tonight.

15 DAYS LEFT!

DAY SEVENTY-SEVEN: What gives you everyday inspiration.

My family, friends and boyfriend. They keep me going everyday.

50 Life Secrets and Tips

Just a little something I found and wanted to share :)

50 Life Secrets and Tips
1. Memorize something everyday. Not only will this leave your brain sharp and your memory functioning, you will also have a huge library of quotes to bust out at any moment. Poetry, sayings and philosophies are your best options.


2. Constantly try to reduce your attachment to possessions. Those who are heavy set with material desires will have a lot of trouble when their things are taken away from them or lost. Possessions do end up owning you, not the other way around. Become a person of minimal needs and you will be much more content.

3. Develop an endless curiosity about this world. Become an explorer and view the world as your jungle. Stop and observe all of the little things as completely unique events. Try new things. Get out of your comfort zone and try to experience as many different environments and sensations as possible. This world has so much to offer, so why not take advantage of it?

4. Remember people’s names so that they feel appreciated and for your own future benefit when you want something from that person. To do this, say their name back to them when they introduce themselves. Then repeat the name in your head a number of times until you are sure you have it. Continue to use their name in conversation as much as possible to remove any chance of forgetting it.
5. Get fit! It’s ridiculous to think that we have one body, one sole means of functioning, and people are too lazy to take care of themselves. Fit bodies lead to better health, confidence and more success with romantic endeavors. I’d say those are 3 very good reasons to get in shape.

6. Learn to focus only on the present. The past is unchangeable so it is futile to reflect on it unless you are making sure you do not repeat past mistakes. The future is but a result of your actions today. So learn from the past to do better in the present so that you can succeed in the future.

7. Even more specifically, live in THIS moment. Even 10 minutes ago is the past. If you live purely in this moment you will always be happy because there is nothing wrong in this split-second.

8. Smile more often. Whenever you get a grin on your face, your brain is releasing serotonin, the happy hormone. Smiling is the natural way to force yourself to be happy. Many people even smile for five minutes straight in the morning to get themselves in a great mood for the day. It is a very powerful tool that is utilized less and less as we grow older and need happiness more than ever. Just remember that while happiness leads to smiles, smiles also lead to happiness.

9. Drink water. Hydration is tremendously important for overall health. Soda has absolutely ZERO nutritional content; it’s like pouring a punch of sugar and syrup into your cup. Instead, fill it with life-replenishing water. It may taste plain at first if you’re coming off of a heavy soda-drinking streak, but you’ll soon find yourself addicted to it. 10 glasses per day is optimal, how many have you been getting lately?

10. Don’t take life so seriously! Learn to laugh at the little things and this whole “existence” thing will be a whole lot easier. Be amused by your mistakes and failures and be thankful that you learned your lesson and won’t mess up like that again. And most importantly do things that you enjoy! Life is not strictly business, it can be mixed with pleasure.

11. Think positive thoughts. When you find yourself thinking a negative thought, stop it immediately by any means necessary. Slap yourself in the face, yell something positive at the top of your lungs or jump up and down. Do whatever it takes to get back to a positive mindset as such is essential for continual happiness and success.

12. Read books. No explanation needed.

13. Get in the sun. Superman was completely re-energized when he flew out to space and soaked in some rays and you can do the same right outside your front door (if you live in a constantly dreary place, my apologies). The sun feels amazing: your entire body will be coursing with warmth and life.

14. Help others. I’ll just give you a plethora of reasons why this is a MUST

• Helping people has a ripple effect. If you help someone they will feel more obliged to help someone else, and so on. Pay it forward

• You grow by giving and helping others. It can change you in ways you never expected

• Your relationship with that person will become stronger

• It’s the most fulfilling thing you can do on this planet. It not only feels amazing physically, you also feel like a good person

• You might be able to call in a favor later when you need some help

• Karma (if you believe in it)

• Because there are more people in this world than just you

15. Set aside a specific time to worry each day. Ponder all of your problems and anxieties during that time so that they will not distract you during work or moments of pleasure. This way you can be extremely efficient with your time and avoid focusing on negative things as much as possible. If you get all of your worry out of the way and have the mental fortitude to keep from reverting back to them, you will be much happier on the daily.

16. Be honest at all times. Lies lead to nothing but trouble. Being known as trustworthy is an excellent trait to maintain and essential to having integrity.

17. Sleep less. Fully adjusting to a new sleep cycle can take up to 21 days so don’t give up if you feel tired after switching to 5-hour nights. The “required” 8 hour/night is for normal people. If you’re reading THIS article on THIS site, you are not normal. So figure out how much sleep YOU really need and adjust accordingly. As enjoyable as sleep is, waking existence is much more fulfilling and efficient.
18. Read an inspiring book. These books will help you decide what you want to do in this life and how to get to that point. They will also profoundly change the way you look at the purpose of existence. Read them!

19. Figure out what your goals and dreams are. So many people wander aimlessly through life simply go for whatever small thing they want moment by moment. Instead, decide what your perfect life consists of and begin to put the steps in motion to reach that place. The most satisfying thing in the world is overcoming a challenge and reaching a goal. We are the happiest when we are growing and working towards something better.

20. Start your day off right. Wake up and set aside an hour for personal development activities (meditation, self-introspection, observing nature, etc.) Do the things that make you feel blissful, optimistic and empowered so that you can set a positive tone for your day. I guarantee that once you start doing this, your days will be more enjoyable and fulfilling. Today is going to be the best day of your life. Duh.

21. Utilize ‘The Burning Method.’ Whenever a fear or worry or complaint comes to mind, close your eyes and imagine writing down the thought on a piece of paper. Then proceed to light the paper and fire and watch it disintegrate. Even better, actually write it down and burn it. You won’t have any problem ridding your mind of the thought after doing this.

22. Travel. Anyone who has ever gone anywhere will tell you that traveling is one of the most exciting and life-changing activities that you can do. Observing a different culture will expand your mind while making you further appreciate the life you already live. This goes back to becoming an explorer: this world is your jungle so go explore! Who knows, maybe you’ll find a place you love so much that you decide to move. Imagine the positive repercussions a new environment could have on your life.

23. The Rubber Band Method This is the third and final way to rid yourself of negative thoughts (hopefully by now you have figured out that this is very important!). Place a rubber band around your wrist and snap it against your skin anytime a negative thought finds its way into your head. This classical conditioning technique associates a slight pain with negative thoughts like Pavlov associated food/salivation with the sound of a bell. Sounds a bit cruel at first but it only stings for a second, I promise. Plus the outcome, having only positive thoughts, far outweighs a little slap on the wrist here and there.

24. Learn to be unaffected by the words of others. Most people get very upset when they are called negative names by others, but there is a simple trick to overcoming this. Here it is: If I went up to you and called you a fire hydrant, would you be upset? Of course not. Obviously you are not a fire hydrant, you are a human being. The same concept applies to when someone calls you something that you know you are not. They are foolish for saying such things, so why would you react with such anger? The only exception is when someone calls you something that is true! In this case, you should thank them for alerting you to a weakness, one that you can now work on changing.

25. Read “Zen and the Art of Happiness” by Chris Prentiss. This book will give you the knowledge and instruction to be happy at all times regardless of the circumstances. Yes, this sounds like an oversimplification of happiness, but I assure you that this book will change you in an amazing way.

26. Develop the ability to forgive. Forgiveness is something that most people fail miserably at even thought it’s so simple. Grudges only bring more misery to those who hold them and prevent good relations with the target. YOU makes mistakes all of the time so why not have mercy when other do? Remaining angry feels horrible while forgiving someone brings a refreshing sensation to the mind and healing to the relationship.

27. Be the person that makes others feel special. Be known for your kindness and sympathy.

28. Learn to lucid dream, or to realize when you are dreaming so that you can control your dreams. Sleep feels good, but its rather boring and unproductive. With lucid dreaming under your belt, night time can be even more exciting than when you are awake. You can do anything: fly, travel to other planets, party with a celebrity, get intimate with your dream boy/girl, etc. Many lucid dreams have also reported being able to speak directly with the subconscious during dreams by demanding to be taken to it after becoming lucid. For those that know a thing or two about your subconscious, that is a BIG deal.

29. Visualize daily. It has been said and proven time and time again that what you focus on is what you get. If you complain all of the time, you will run into more of the things you complain about. The same goes for good things like health, wealth and happiness. So spend some time in the morning imagining yourself achieving whatever it is that you currently desire. Focus is key in this exercise, so choose a quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed. If you’re having trouble focusing and continually find that your mind has wandered to something else, read about meditation in the following life tip. There is a lot more to this concept, so check out the full article on visualization and the law of attraction here.

30. Meditate everyday for at least 20 minutes. In this modern world where everyone is so connected to everything else via cell phones, TV and internet, most people rarely enjoy the beauty of silence. The ability to quiet your mind and relax your body is an art and skill that everyone should develop. Simply sit somewhere, preferably in nature, and focus on your breathing or try to think about nothing. This is going to be extremely hard at first! You might find it boring or just plain impossible to think of nothing, but you will get better and you will learn to love it. Post-meditation, you will feel extremely clear headed and.. well, just plain wonderful. The only way to really understand this sensation is to try it.

31. Learn to control your mind. What kind of skilled human are you if you cannot even control your own thoughts? While the human mind is described as being a stream of consciousness, that does not mean you can’t decide where your stream flows. Techniques like meditation and the 3 ways to flush out negative thoughts will aid you immensely in learning to control your mind.

32. Learn to control your emotions. The only person that can make you unhappy is you! You are the one that decides to be affected by the words and actions of others. Realize this so that the next time you experience a negative emotion, you can find the strength within yourself to overcome it.

33. Take a class in speed reading. Books are full of information that can enhance your knowledge-base, vocabulary and yourself as a person. Speed reading is an easy way to get at this info faster so that you can have more time for other endeavors.

34. Relax! This one is for you work-o-holics out there. Yes, work is very important and productive but you need to take some time to chill out everyday or you are going to burn out faster than a candle with no oxygen. Additionally, you need to reward yourself for a job well done. What’s the use of doing all of that work if you can’t have a little fun from time to time anyways?

35. Work on making good first impressions. Practice a strong, firm handshake and the small talk that generally goes along with meeting someone for the first time. People won’t know what to think of you if you have nothing more to say beyond “My name is _______, nice to meet you.” Also make sure you remember names, as mentioned previously. Who knows, you may be going into business with or marrying this person you’re meeting for the first time if you make a good impression. Be sure and make an excellent one.

36. Learn to use your eyes to their full potential:

• Make constant eye contact when in conversation. Looking away (especially down) is a sign of inferiority and unsureness. Instead, look at your conversation partner dead in the eyes and keep them locked on

• Master the piercing stare. You know when someone looks at you and it feels like they can see into your soul? Well that’s not a hereditary characteristic, it just takes practice. Work on sharpening your gaze in the mirror. You’ll know you have it when it’s intimidating to continue looking at yourself

• Master the one-eyebrow raise. This one isn’t necessary by any means, but hey, why not? Pick a brow to learn with and go look in a mirror. Raise both of your eyebrows but use your hand to hold down the brow that you want to stay down. This will probably feel very stupid at first but if you keep trying, you will eventually pin down the muscle you need to flex to get that one brow up

37. Be mysterious. Don’t let off everything about you and definitely leave out some major details. There is something both alluring and mesmerizing about someone that no one knows fully about. I’m not saying to confide in no one or to alienate yourself. Just think James Bond.

38. Come up with a life mantra. You know, like “Carpe Diem” or “Live life to the fullest,” but not as cliché. Make it something that really hits home with you so that you will actually stick to it. Make sure it’ not so specific that it rarely applies but also not so general that it’s not personal.

39. Get good at something. Call it a hobby or a passion, whatever it is, just get damn good at it. Your occupation does not count! Make it something that you can practice often enough to excel at. Examples: Magic tricks, surfing, ping pong, creating short films, and unicycling. It can be anything but I would recommend choosing something that: 1) You are passionate about 2) You can bust out at any moment to display your skills for any discerning crowd. My mind goes immediately to aerobatics and break dancing, but that’s just me.

40. Work out those abs. Above any other muscle group in the entire body, the abs are the most important. They constitute your core, the center point of your body. Your ability to balance comes almost completely from the strength of your abdominal muscles and balance is vital to performance in any physical activity. Summary: they’re very important. For more info on how to work out your abs, check out this video.

41. Keep your brain sharp. The majority of people are stuck in ruts. They go to the same job everyday, hang out with the same friends and eat at the same places. While that may feel safe, it’s not the most stimulating lifestyle for your brain. Those synapses have been built up enough, so try something that you do NOT know how to do! Buy a model car kit, master the art of sudoku or crosswords, or go pick up another major at your nearest college. The point is you need to be learning new things to keep your brain honest. Form new synapses by forcing your mind to work in ways it has not worked before. Just like physical workouts, doing too much of the same exercise will eventually give no results. Switch it up!

42. Read something inspirational right before bed and after waking. This will set get you in a great mood for sleep and for the day. Read anything from a famous speech to your favorite self-improvement book. Try to read something that get’s you really excited in the morning especially so that you’ll leave your house beaming with energy and wonder.

43. Do what you love. There is a huge difference between making a life and making a living; which one are you making right now? So many spend their entire lives trying to make as much money as possible so that they can afford to do what they really want later. It makes no sense to settle in life until you’re 65 so that you can retire and do what you want when you’re already WAY past your prime. We only live life once so why wouldn’t you want to spend it pursuing your bliss? To do anything else would be a tragic waste of the freedom you are allowed if you are reading this right now. Follow your bliss and you will be a thousand times more happy than your retirement date and 40+ years younger.

44. Choose your friends wisely. You are affected far more than you think by the people you spend your time with. Do your friends share your values? Do they encourage you when you speak of your goals and dreams or do they scoff? Make sure the people around you are conducive to the lifestyle you want to lead or you will find yourself being dragged again and again into behavior that distances you from your desires. Friends with a habit of producing negative thoughts will especially hinder you. This can be a hard task to follow through with if you realize you good friend is one of these saboteurs, but you must be firm! Don’t let anyone get in the way of you being all that you can be.

45. Don’t burn bridges. By that I mean maintain your relationships with people even if you think you are never going to see them again. For example, if you are quitting your job, don’t chew out your boss before leaving! You might run into him/her again later and life and wish you had never severed ties so harshly. You never know when you might need the help of someone you knew in the past. Plus there is already too much hatred in this world, why add more towards the people you interact with?

46. Keep a journal/diary/blog. It sounds like a very monotonous habit at first, but when you get into it, that little book will become a great way to organize your thoughts and track your growth over the years. Most of us already stay awake in bed at night pondering the events of the day anyways so why not document those thoughts in an organized fashion? That will allow you to look back and observe how your way of thinking has changed over time.

47. Take a bath every once in a while. Take some time to relax, read, or take some stress away from your everyday life.
48. Learn to use and trust your subconscious/intuition. When you spend time in silence everyday, listen not for words but for a feeling that tells you to do something. Do not mistake your own reasoning and thoughts for those of your subconscious. If you can track where the thought came from, (this thought led to that thought which led to this thought, etc.) then it was not from your subconscious. Learning to accurately discern between the two will allow you to tap into knowledge that you don’t consciously have.

49. Develop a charismatic personality. You know, the kind of personality that is surrounded by people constantly and is the life of the party. Start visualizing yourself as THAT person. Maybe take a short course on dynamic speaking and learn some jokes. Take the time to learn some party tricks and sleight of hand. Most importantly, believe that you already are charismatic even if you fail at beign the center point of the next party. Lie to yourself constantly and tell yourself that you are more warm and gregarious than Ronald Regan. Belief is the first step! Reality will come soon after.

50. Love is all there is. If you truly want to be a master of life, let love be in your every action. Love your friends, family and enemies alike. This is the most difficult thing to do out of this entire list, which is why it is listed at #50. But if you accomplish this, you will be seen as a leader among everyone that allows hate, envy, disgust and all other negative emotions into their lives. Think Gandhi. Love is so rare in this world when compared to the massive presence of hate that by exuding love, you will immediately see yourself and the people around you change. Love. Love. Love.

Wednesday

So last night I got to sleep on the sleeping porch in Ellen's bed which kinda sucked cause its extremely hard to get on the top bunk and nobody slept at all last night. Also, this used to happen before i would get up for school back in moses, but the birds and squirrels were up at like 5 chirping and they wouldn't stop!! i was about to go open the window and throw something at them. haha i get initiated today! on 4/20. kinda sketchy.. haha jk. ALSO!
Good Luck to Tay! Shes having her surgery today to remove her bump on her back. :) haha I love you sister!

so today, class. academic showcase, tanning, class, dinner, initiation, cleaning, and SLEEPING.
I get to register for classes tomorrow hopefully!

DAY SEVENTY-SIX: How do you feel about going green?
I'm a tree hugger. haha I think its awesome that going green is coming back. it can only benefit society and the earth. :) i always try to recycle when i can and i love buying products that are considered "green" and I love to eat organic and vegetarian food when I get that option. :)

16 DAYS LEFT!

Tuesday

Yesterday was a busy day! We had our last chapter of the year and formal dinner! also last night we spent the night at the house in the formal and it sucked cause the floor is super hard and uncomfortable and i ended up walking home at 7:30 in the morning. but it was fun to be with my girls and have all our girly talks haha

Monday

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Sunday

Today has been super lazy but tonight was the first night of my initiation into Gamma Phi! We had a candle pass so that was kinda cool. Tomorrow is going to be super busy like always.. i even made a schedule by hours so i don't lose track of things i need to do :) we have our last floor meeting tonight which is kind of sad in a way because we only have 3 weeks of school left. its crazy how fast time has gone by but, i cant wait to be home for summer. :)

Rachel, also very different from me but we have been friends the longest and i dont think we have ever had a fight. :)

Thursday

DAY SEVENTY: A celebrity you don't necessarily enjoy and why.
Kristen Stewart. I very strongly dislike her. She has no personality whatsoever and her acting is so plain and emotionless. This was an easy one. she ruined twilight for me. lol

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Wednesday

Im starting to feel a little better so thats good! :) I went tanning today and it felt so good because its been raining all day so it was nice to feel warm. haha im starting to get a little stressed out from the year ending so fast but im excited!!
but last night we got some bad news at the house so that completely ruined things..

DAY SIXTY-NINE: Powerful song lyrics you love.
There are so many different songs that I could use for this. I don't even know where i would start to begin picking a song. haha they all mean so much to me and i love lyrics. :)

I'm Lovin Life!

Ugh! my computer is retarded and didnt post my post from yesterday. Anyways, i forgot to mention on monday that i got my swim suit in the mail! and victorias secret sent me another discount so i ordered a white swim suit so that should be here soon! yesterday i decided on a summer job so this way i wont have to work nights and ill be able to make it to softball games and all the fun stuff going on in summer! and ill be making bank in tips!! :) I bought a tanning package yesterday so i went tanning and im going to go as soon as i get done with blogging haha i am so ready for summer!!

also, yesterday i realized that i had been wearing my underwear inside out all day.. haha in my defense i was in a hurry when i put them on. lol

DAY SIXTY-EIGHT: The best concert you have been to.
I think just in general i would say Warped Tour. But my favorite bands to watch were The Classic Crime, A Day to Remember, and 3Oh!3.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Monday

DAY SIXTY-SEVEN: How you found out about blogspot and why you made one.
I can't really remember how i found out about it but i made it because I wanted to start blogging. i wanted something that was like a journal that i could use to write about anything i felt. :)

Sunday

Sunday my mom and I got up and drove back to Lewiston. I had already woken up with a sore ear but going down that awful hill put so much pressure on it. i was crying in our hotel room for like an hour with a washcloth on it so we went back to pullman and found a doctor to go to and she told me i have an ear infection. great. lol
after the doctors my mom took me home and she left back for moses. i had a wonderful time with my mommy this weekend. :)

DAY SIXTY-SIX: If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?

Hmm... im not sure I would like to switch lives with anyone. maybe someone with more money or a super model but im positive that nobody has a perfect life and i love my life completely. :)

Monday, April 11, 2011

Saturday

Saturday my mom and i got up to go back to Pullman. We dropped off a basket for the silent auction and then went to the Old European breakfast place haha it was so packed! also something that was super awkward.. there was a boy and his mom sitting next to us and his mom literally reached over, took his plate, and cut up his pancakes for him... my mom and i were laughing so hard. it was ridiculous. After we ate dinner we went to moscow to shop a little. Got some new summer clothes. Then we met up with Tanner and Tina at Crimson and Grey, hung out in his room for a while, then went to the bookie.
after that my mom and i ate dinner and then we met up with tanner and tina again and we sat in his room for a few hours talking and having fun. then we left to one of the live outs and hung out there then we left to another live out which was super fun! all i have to say about this night was bushes. hahhahah we also ran in to randy and megan walking back home which was weird but it was nice to see them!

DAY SIXTY-FIVE: One random fact about yourself.
I can touch my nose with my tounge. hahah

Friday

This is to make up for Friday. I had a super busy weekend! haha
So Friday, my mom came into town for moms weekend. We packed her car full of stuff from my room that i dont need since im done with school in like 3 weeks! after that we went to dinner and then got ready to go to the fashion show. There was a craft fair going on in Beasley so we walked around a little and looked at all the cool things then we went and got a seat for the show. I was so amazed by this fashion show. All of these students are so talented and I have a new goal now to be one of the designers in the show within the next couple of years. :)

after the show we drove to my moms hotel in Lewiston.
DAY SIXTY-FOUR: Your best friend got in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before, what do you do?

Obviously forget about the fight and go be with her. A stupid fight would not stop me from being there for my best friends if something happened to her. We hardly even fight as it is so it wouldnt be hard to get over a fight with one of them. :)

Thursday, April 7, 2011

When you fall I'll be the only one who looks away, when you call I'll be the first to tell you I can't stay

I cant seem to kick these allergies or sickness or whatever it is. Its ruining my nights and mornings. lol and I've been having some really weird dreams lately and i have no idea what they mean. its super annoying.
Tonight I have a PACE programming so that should be fun. then more study table hours.
GOOD NEWS! My mommy is coming to town tomorrow and we are going to the fashion show! :)

29 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL! :)

DAY SIXTY-THREE: Your views on gay marriage.

I support it. I think anyone should be able to love who they want so why would we be able to tell them not to get married? its just a piece of paper. I love gay guys. they are the best. :) hahaha

Told you I'll be here forever, said I'll always be your friend

This post is to make up for wednesday.

DAY SIXTY-TWO: Describe your best friend completely.
I have three of these. :) They are all amazing. They are always there for me. I know I can go to any of them to talk about anything and everything. They mean so much to me and they are the people I've known the longest. They are the best friends anyone could ask for. :)

take that and rewind it back.

So i wrote this on tuesday but forgot to post it haha

I GOT MY NEW MOM! ELLEN! :)
So last night we had our new member meeting after chapter and we were sitting there bored and then all the other girls started pounding on the doors and i thought someone was gunna get shot. haha but then i was handed a card that led me to put on crazy socks, a tube top, another shirt and some sunglasses like a scavenger hunt across the house. then i went downstairs and everyone was waiting and Ellen found me and told me she was my new mom! :) Im super excited! I have a greek family now and I love them! I also got a new twin Kelsey! :) I am loving life today. haha except imkinda sick still but thats ok. Im getting things finished tonight at study tables! i cant wait to be done with school work. this summer is going to be the best ever!!

31 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL! 

DAY SIXTY-ONE: One of your most prized possessions.

Basically my life or my body. Im glad I have the life that I do and I wouldnt want it any other way :) Phones and stuff are replaceable so i wouldnt concider them prized possessions.

Monday, April 4, 2011

You play my nerves, like strings, all upside-down.

I'm extremely annoyed with this sickness that I have. My throat hurts sooo bad. but mostly when I'm trying to sleep. lol this week is a busy week! One book test on Tuesday over a book that i haven't read but i tried to and it is extremely awful. It was written by an African American. no offense. its just really hard to understand and every five seconds of reading i have to look down at the bottom of the page to see what the special word with the number by it means. I'm just going to read some spark notes on it or something. lol then Wednesday i have two tests and I'm nervous cause i really really really have to do good. thank goodness for our test files! I'm going to memorize every question and answer! haha
But this weekend is Moms Weekend! so that's exciting! we are going to watch the fashion show put on by my major!
I also just found out that we have formal chapter tonight. in our Pajamas!! haha nice! i hate dressing up so I'm glad we don't have to this week!!

32 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL!


DAY FIFTY-NINE: One person you can tell everything to.
I have three people. Tanner Jade and Rachel. These are the people I go to for everything. They are always here for me. :)

DAY SIXTY: A YouTube video you absolutely love and describe why.
There are so many YouTube videos I love. This is like asking me what my favorite movie is. haha there are too many good ones to just pick one. :) 

Saturday, April 2, 2011

Today I don't feel like doin anything. I just want to lay in my bed.

Woke up this morning SICK. ugh. i missed my recruitment practice event because of it so now I owe 75 bucks. but on a good note, I ordered a swimsuit from Victoria's secret last night and im super excited for it to get here!! except I ordered a leopard one but then tanner and tina told me not to get that one so i emailed them and asked if i could change the color to a dark blue one. so im just waiting to hear back from them and im still not sure what color it is but i would love to have either one so im happy. haha

Don't worry. They wont look like half as good on me. haha
 Also, my next purchase is going to be a pair of TOMS not because everyone else has a pair but they are soooo comfy and I want to wear them to all the softball tournaments! haha im already planning my outfits for the games. :)

and one other thing! I think this summer we are going to try to plan a big trip to California with all of our friends which makes me super excited! :)

Blogging makes me realize how much I have to look forward to and it shows me how lucky I am to be me and have such wonderful people around me. :)

Erin.

Happy 1st day of April and HELLLOOOO SUNSHINE. I could get used to this weather. Pullman. PLEASE STAY WARM for the rest of the month at least until I can go home for Summer. :)

DAY FIFTY-SEVEN: Your definition of happiness.

My definition of happiness is being in love, being loved, and loving life. Ive come to realize that not everything is always going to go the way I want it but that isnt going to stop me form being happy. I think to be happy you have to love the life you were given and make the most out of every situation. I also believe that you are in charge of your own happiness. If you want to do something, make it happen for yourself. :)

ONLY ONE MONTH OF SCHOOL LEFT!
and finals week but thats just two days out of the week. :)
I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN HOW HAPPY I AM TO GO HOME!

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Do you believe in Magic?

DAY FIFTY-SIX: Something you did as a child that other people remember you for.

Well when I was like 3, my mom would tell me to come inside to go to the bathroom but I would be too busy playing in the dirt so I would wet my pants and continue playing and ever since then my whole family has always referred to me as "making mud". Not the prettiest story ever but its definitely stuck through the years. haha thanks family!

37 DAYS LEFT!

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I don't mind, havin that someone around.

This morning I woke up to a hurricane outside, a headache, and a cough. lol not a good way to start the day.
All day this weather has been pretty crappy and I'm not liking it at all. I can't wait for school to be over!!
38 DAYS LEFT!
That means only 5 more weekends in pullman, 13 more English, Pysch and History of Rock and roll classes, 9 UColl and gen ed classes. how awesome does that sound!?

ALSO! BIG NEWS! I decided to take the Disney College Program next Spring so I don't have to pay and decide right now! I found out that there is a way to stay in the system and take the offer at a different time. :)
Awesome. I know! haha

Well Im off to go get a coffee and do some study tables! yay. NOT.


DAY FIFTY-FIVE: A passage from a book that has touched you.

Well this is a hard one because I don't have any books with me here at college.. haha

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I want SUNSHINE.

Its been rainging all day today! I just want SUNSHINE! O well cause there is only 39 days left until school is out so im pretty pumped! Im also pretty excited because I have been getting up at 10 to go to the rec and I like starting my day off like this. It keeps me energized through the day.
Also! Last night we preffed for moms! Im extremely nervous because Kelsey told me when I was taking her home that she knew who my mom was already and she was smiling and excited so i hope that means i got my number one! Im super scared. lol i dont know when I will find out either because its a surprise so it will be anytime between now and towards the end of the month. AHH! scary. haha

DAY FIFTY-FOUR: Your definition of love.

My definition of love is finding that one person that you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with. Love is when you can be completely silly and comfortable with each other and it only makes you love them more. Love is when you can do absolutely nothing together and still be having the most amazing time. Love is when you trust someone with everything you have and they support you in everything you do. Love is when you have been through the highest highs and the lowest lows and it only makes you stronger together. Love can't really be explained.. its more of thing that has to be felt to understand exactly what it is. My definition of love has the name of Tanner. :)

Disneyland Dilemma

Dilemma: (n.) State of uncertainty or perplexity especially as requiring a choice between equally unfavorable options.

This is exactly my problem. I want to go on this paid internship to Disneyland but there are so many reason why I shouldn't. The program would start in August so instead of taking fall quarter I would be working in Disneyland but one issue is that I only have until MARCH 31 to decide if I want to accept the program or not! thats only 3 days away!! and I owe about 800 for first time fees and all that when i accept. but also, I owe about 800 on APRIL 1 if I want to live in the GPhi house next year! so either way I will be paying 800 dollars in the next 3-4 days.
Im going to make a Pros and Cons list for disneyland. maybe it will help.

PROS:                                                                                                              
- This is would be the perfect job for me and I don't want to pass up the opportunity.
- I can decilne the offer but i would still be in the system so I could take the job at a later date. I think. lol they said something about it at the recruitment meeting thing. I would just need to make a call to check on that.
- I can get 3 people into the parks at one time for free so tanner, friends and family could come visit.
- I would be in California!
-This is one of the top things I can add to my resume and the whole internship is about networking with huge companies.
- I get paid about 10 dollars an hour.
- I get to meet new people from all over the world.
- I wouldnt be paying a ton of money to live in the Gphi house, or to go to the fall semseter of WSU.
- I can ride rides before i start working every day if i wanted..
- They said that the time spent in california will go by faster than anything you have experienced. which i think is true.

CONS:
- I would be away from Tanner, friends and family for about 6 months. which i don't think I'm ready to do even though they can come visit.
- Friends can come visit, but they have to pay for a flight there and back, and a hotel cause they aren't allowed to stay with me.  
- I should be living in the GPhi house next year cause not many juniors live in so I would only get to live in for like a semester.
- Im already behind in credits so I would be in college for 5 years most likely unless i spent all my summers in summer sessions.
- I'm already behind in Gamma Phi Beta stuff because I'm a new member and I haven't even made close friends yet and this is just going to set me back.
- money is due in three days and its a lot of money. lol
- Even though time goes by fast with me working there, i would not only be in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend, (which is already a nightmare.) I would be in a long distance relationship with my friends and family. I am with tanner every day. I cant even begin to imagine being without him for 6 months. Im not as strong as jade and all the others that have had to go through this. I just don't think i could handle it. I mean I'm sure ill get over it once im there but its going to make my time there harder when all i want to do is go back home. Tanner wants me to go, but he feels the same way I do because he doesn't want me to leave..


So should i risk missing out on a huge opportunity and stay in school and the GPhi house with family and friends, or put all that aside for a few months and take a great offer?


OR 

Amazing weekend!

I think I'm just going to make one giant blog for the last 4 days. ya. sounds good to me. lol I didn't have service all weekend or Internet connection so it was a little hard to blog. haha

Friday: we left at 3:30 to go to CANADA. which sucked to ride a bus for 7 hours but it was ok. so we ended up getting into town at like 10:30 so we wanted to go eat. this is the reason why i didn't like Canada..
we went to the pub to eat dinner and the waitress asked for IDs. so i told her i forgot mine and she asked if i could go get it and i said well am i not allowed to be in here if I'm 18 and she said no, sorry. so i got extremely mad because i just wanted to eat dinner with no intention of drinking. so i went back to the hotel and tanner followed shortly after cause he wanted to talk to the waitress. she said the only reason i couldn't be in there was because a cop could come in and shut them down for 5 days. whatever. anyways tanner and i walked to Denny's and ordered french toast slams and holy cow it was like a 30 dollar meal all together. Canada is so expensive! lol then we went back to Cody's room and hung out there.
 Tanner and I on the bus ride to Canada!
 Me at the border! haha definitely checking that off the bucketlist!

Saturday: set an alarm for like 9 to go to breakfast, got too tired and fell back asleep till like 11, got ready then realized the hot tub was open! so we put our swim suits on and told everyone to go in the hot tub. so everyone was in the hot tub drinking their drinks and hangin out. it was pretty fun! then tanner and i walked to get some food at a gas station and i ordered a bacon cheeseburger and they put a pickle slice on TOP of the bun. Canadians do things weird. haha so then we went back and hung out in the hot tub some more and met some old guys that were a little too creepy for me. haha then we got ready and went to our formal dinner! which was so much fun and tanner got some awards from his house. he got 'Guido Status' which is no surprise but he also got the 'Marshall Award' which basically means hes the most promising candidate. Good job babe! anyways, after dinner we were supposed to go clubbing but of course nobody actually made it to the club but instead tanner and i spent our night chasing Holly around the courtyard because she wanted to go hot tubing but we tried telling her it was closed. that was fun. haha
Me pretending to steal a drink. haha
            Tannner and I at dinner!                         
Sunday: we set an alarm for 8:30 to pack and get ready to leave cause the buses were leaving at 10. so i wake up to pounding on our door from Cody and Levi and that's when i realized it was 10! so we scrambled to pack everything up and rushed out the door to get checked out and ran to the bus. we almost had to pay for a really expensive taxi ride. haha so we drove another 7 hours back home.
 Tanner and I on the way back home.
Monday: Today, Tanner and I went to breakfast at 10 and headed to the gym to get some conditioning in. apparently the month of April is our month to become beautiful for summer haha everyday from now on tanner and i are going to get up early and eat breakfast and run. I'm not excited at all but i know its for the best to get me in shape. haha tonight we have our new member meeting to learn more Gamma Phi history and then after we are preffing for moms! I'm scared.. :/ after that we have informal chapter and then pledge pinning where we have to wear informal whites? also makes me very nervous. lol then after that i have to do some study table hours and then go to tanners to do our gen ed quiz. i don't like being so busy all the time!

DAY FIFTY-ONE: Describe your future wedding.
My wedding is going to be perfect. I don't want to settle for anything less then what I want. I know that sounds a little stuck up but I only get this day once and its always going to be a day that i remember for the rest of my life. I don't know any of the details of what I want my wedding to look like because I want to be able to choose these things with my husband. :)

DAY FIFTY-TWO: What is the most inspirational thing you have ever heard?
Ive heard a lot of inspirational stuff but I the words Believe and Dream mean the most to me. Everyone should have a goal in life and believe in themselves to make their dreams come true. I think anything can be made possible with the help of some goals and dreams. :)

DAY FIFTY-THREE: Your day in great detail.
Fortunately I just described four days in detail.

40 more days till school is over!

Friday, March 25, 2011

If your one of us, then roll with us.

DAY FIFTY: Your plans for the weekend.

Im not sure what our exact plans are but at 3 i will be on my way to Canada!! woo! haha Im super duper excited! except i realized this morning that my phone wont work in Canada. great. and hopefully there is free wifi in my hotel or i will be totally disconnected to the world. haha anyways, we have a 7 hour bus ride to Canada on charter busses and i think im going to die. lol i hate bus rides so im not quite sure how this is going to work for me. haha
tomorrow night we have our formal dinner! and night clubs! and the bars for everyone else! haha :( i hope i can get in or else i will be super bored.. lol sometimes i dont like being young!
Im glad that Aimee is going tho! it will be nice to have another girl i know there!

last night we got our sweatshirts! they are so awesome! i will post pictures when i get back or later today if i get time!


how cute is this thing? i want one!

Thursday, March 24, 2011

It's beginning to feel a lot like SPRING!

It is a beautiful day in Pullman today! It's a whopping 52 degrees right now! :) I think I'm going to wear a t-shirt to class today. without a coat. :O


So I've been extremely busy this whole week and I know I've been behind on blogging.. so I'm making up for it right now.

DAY FORTY-EIGHT: Your life story in three words.

I asked Tanner what three words he would pick for me and he said: I'm With Tanner.
haha but I think I would pick: Happy Exciting Eventful. ha

DAY FORTY-NINE: Are you a lover or a fighter?

I think I'm both. Mostly a lover but when I need to stand up for something or someone, I will. I try to avoid drama and situations that make me a fighter because I would rather be lover. :) i like to love. haha


TOMARROW I LEAVE FOR CANADA! Im excited for this because I will be checking off something on my bucketlist. I've never been to Canada before and it's one of the places I want to visit. So I get to visit a new country, and have a wonderful time with my boyfriend and some pretty cool people. :)

Also, only 43 days till school is out! I can't wait for Summer! I can't wait for camping, tanning, swim suits 24/7, blonde hair, sunglasses, swimming, boating, relaxing, be with friends, traveling, and everything else that has to do with SUMMER!
I hope everyone is as excited about this wonderful weather. :) Have a GREAT day!
