So Call Me Maybe?

That’s right.  About three lines from this song has been on endless repeat in my head for the past month and a half.  At first it was hard to like.  I was the snob who thought “how juvenile!” Then I got a few drinks in me, listened to it over and over and knew that it was meant to be.

It has now become my anthem, my shower song, my dance tune, my everything.  I have realized though that it takes every ounce of strength to not use it in normal conversation.

“Hi professor.  If you get the chance to give me feedback on my thesis about the Argentinian “Dirty War”, that would be great.  Call me maybe.”

“Want to get lunch? Call me maybe.”

“I’ll take one with everything on it.  Make that a large Coke. Call me maybe.”

I am turning into a 17 year old valley-girl a-la Clueless style…….and I don’t hate it.

This one is obviously better than the real music video. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez almost kissing…how would that not win my teen-bop heart over?

You’re welcome.

So What!?

I’ve been up to some not-so-acceptable things and at this point I just want to say to everyone judging….SO WHAT?!

So What….

1. If I am now a Belieber.  Have you HEARD “Girlfriend??”  When I first heard it I thought it was Justing Timberlake…not Bieber.  I actually wanted to call the radio station to tell them they got the name wrong when they said Justin Bieber.  Now I realize, that Justin Bieber is alllll grown up.  OH yeahh.

2. If I stay up till 4 am after work so I can catch up on Real Housewives of New Jersey.  It’s going to be drama drama drama and I need to get my fix every week.  Have you see Ashley’s hair yet?? “She thinks she’s Kesha.”

3. If I don’t wake up till noon on Sundays and don’t shower till 5 pm right before work.  I work my tail off so when I lay around all day, I have absolutely no guilt about it.

4. If I wait till the night before to do a huge assignment.  As long as I get it done and I ace it anyway, then what’s the big deal?

5. If I’d rather buy new underwear and socks than wash the ones I already have.  I normally wouldn’t do this but between my crazy work schedule(46 hours this week!!) and all this studying and the upcoming exams, laundry seems like a chore and a ridiculous idea.  Ergo countless Wal-mart trips.

“When in doubt, make a fool of yourself.  There is a microscopically thin line between brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth.  So what the hell, leap.”

Bucket List #1

I keep coming across things that I think would be so amazing to do sometime in my life.  So I decided to start a bucket list through this blog so I can come back and keep track of them.  Some of the things will be little or silly but some of them are my dream.  What’s a bucket list without some extremely out there or abnormal wants?

So here’s a first start to my bucket list.


  • Study abroad in Spain
  • Take an alternative spring break
  • Skydive
  • Make my own clothing
  • Work/Intern at a volunteer non-profit organization
  • Throw a birthday party for my cat
