Offensive or just practical?

I was listening to the radio on the way into work the other day. The question of the day? Do you think it is OK if your significant other wears jewelry given to them by an ex?

I was surprised to hear one of the DJs and many callers say that they would feel 100 percent offended. To me, it's just not that big of a deal. (Unless it's like an engagement/wedding ring or something and holds a lot of meaning...) If you like the jewelry, why not keep wearing it? It's just a thing, right?
What do you think?

Just for fun

Je suis excité visiter si l'Europe. Je me sens comme j'ai attendu ma vie entière pour faire si. Et, maintenant, j'obtiens pour aller avec de de mes la plupart des gens préférés.

J'ai révisé un morceau sur mon français, mais craindre que tous sera terriblement perdu dans Rome. Rien n'aime est perdu dans un pays étranger avec votre une aimée !

*L'amour de Gotta libère les sites internet de traduction... Cela m'aurait pris à jamais pour chiffrer!

Where have I been?

Well, friends. I've been sitting at home reading "The Lady Elizabeth." (After watching some movies about her, I'm completely intrigued...)

It was supposed to be my book for the big trip, but I seriously can't seem to put it down.

I think I have a problem. Books (good ones anyway) totally take me away from the world of the living.

I should be done by Friday.

Woohoo J! So excited for you!

Perhaps they should have planned a bit more...

So many things running through my mind... Since the priest is still missing, though, I'll keep my comments to myself.

I sure hope he's ok.

Stop Pumping Gas: Ten Hot Home Office Jobs

With fuel prices topping four dollars per gallon in some states, many Americans want to keep their paychecks in their pockets and out of their gas tanks. Thanks to cheap Internet access and fast computers, some workers can perform their jobs just as well from home as they can in the office. Government analysts recently identified ten fast-growing jobs that combine higher-than-average hourly wages with the benefits of working from home.
#10: Virtual Assistant

Dude in the picture does look really happy...


Any tips?

As the big trip gets closer and closer, I'm starting to read a bit online about how one gets prepared for such an endeavor. I've read a bunch of tips from strangers online, but thought I'd ask my friends and fellow bloggers who have traveled abroad as to their #1 travel tips?

I've also been reading quite a bit about the pickpockets over there... And am, quite frankly, a little concerned.

Any tips or ideas are appreciated!

Quick flick wrap-up

While "studying," I took breaks by watching movies here and there. I'm sure most of you have already seen these, but thought I'd offer my review.

1. Sweeney Todd - Very good. A little to bloody for my taste. Johnny is always tremendous. And, I enjoy Helena Bonham Carter too. I would give it a solid 8 out of 10.

2. I Could Never Be Your Woman - Just ok I think. I really like both Michelle Pfieffer and Paul Rudd. Unfortunately, though, this is one of those movies that you could totally forget about the moment it ends. (It did have "Have I the Right" by the Honeycombs on the soundtrack though... Andrew liked that.) I would give it a 5 out of 10. (Man, I'm tough.)

3. Princess - Yes. This is embarrassing. It was an ABC movie. I watched. But would not watch again. I'm all about Cinderella stories. This just was not it. Oh, and seriously, "Sunshine" from "Remember the Titans" has got to be in his mid-30s now. Not the ideal "prince" for this kind of thing. 3 out of 10.

4. The Wedding Date - This is one of those movies I could watch over and over again. I'm not sure why. Though, I think it has something to do with Dermot Mulroney's hotness. I would highly recommend as a chick flick. And, it ALWAYS seems to be on TV! 9 out of 10.

That's all I can think of for now... But I'm sure there were others. I really tend to procrastinate when homework is involved...


Wow. I had no idea I would be taking that long of a break.

Things are-a-winding down a bit now. Papers have been turned in. Group projects have been completed.

Only one final exam to go at this point.

I hope you are all doing well... and still checking in from time to time!


Don't you give up on me!

I just realized my paper - that I have yet to start - is due a week earlier than I had originally thought. (Eek!)

Unfortunately, I think it's time I take an official blogging break for the next week or so to focus a bit.

Please don't give up on me. I'll be back in full force soon enough. I promise!

Have a wonderful week folks!

P.S. Next time I blog, I'll officially be an adult. I can't believe I'm reaching my "adult" age... Crazy!


Happy B-Day sis!

Even though she never looks at my blog, thought I'd throw a birthday shout-out to my sis, B.

Happy Happy Birthday B!

Hope you have the best birthday ever today!

Love you!

OK. Now I'm really pumped.

We just got official word on our hotels for our trip.
The above is the view from our hotel in London.
All the hotels look absolutely amazing...

A must-see


Can't get enough of Entourage

Johnny. Drama. Is. Hilarious.

I didn't feel comfortable posting some of these quotes on my blog, so thought I'd link instead.

If you watch the show, they're going to crack you up.

If not, perhaps they'll make you tune in. :)

Happy April Fool's Day

I love youtube.

Rick Astley has probably never had so many people watch his video.
