A Week In My Life

A Week In My Life

I thought I write about my week and share the fun, spontaneous, and normal events that take place in my life. So sit back, relax and enjoy.


Wow. I woke up today at 7 a.m. wanting to immediately go back to sleep since I only got about 5 hours of it. I knew that if I was going to survive through my 8 a.m. class and that coffee was a must, and since I don't know how (or don't want to) make my own coffee, I went to Starbucks. Grande skinny caramel macchiato extra shot of espresso, please.   I wish I went to my 8 a.m. more, because I really like the teacher but I am NOT a morning person. After class I napped and then met with my friends to tour a couple townhouses because we need to sign a lease ASAP unless we want to be homeless next year. I spent the rest of my day in class and doing homework. I have a class that goes from 5-7:20 p.m. and it's honestly just cruel. I hope my teacher knows I'm not taking notes on my laptop, I'm really just pinning vegan foods for me to cook later and online shopping, oh and writing for my blog. I have an A in the class so whatever. I also got my hands on one of Kylie Jenner's lip kits... FINALLY. Any of you beauty junkies that have been following her know that they sell out immediately every time she restocks. Unfortunately she didn't restock one of the colors that I wanted (Mary Jo K) but did restock Candy K (the color me and my sister wanted) so I got my hands on two of those! I'll definitely do a review on it when mine comes in.


More house hunting, and we found the perfect one. Well to be honest I didn't even look at it cause I had an appointment with an advisor about getting a special education minor (which is going to fit into my schedule so I'm doing it! Yay!) My friends did a video tour of the place for me and we decided out of all of them we liked that one the best so we're applying for it. I have an exam tomorrow so I've been studying all day for that and my anxiety is at an all time high. I feel like I'm just realizing that I have so much to do and so little time to do it since I'm going home this weekend. Currently forming a stomach ulcer. It's already week 9 out of my 10 week (plus finals) term. My friend and I went to get food today and I totally was like yeah I'll get the same thing I always get at Jimmy Johns, and then remembered I'm a vegetarian now. It's definitely going to take some getting used to, but every time I don't eat meat I feel really happy and excited about the decision I've made. My day consisted of studying, complaining about studying, and procrastinating. Happy Tuesday y'all.


Of course I didn't make it to my 8 a.m. class today, classic Melinda. I woke up at 10 and went straight to Starbucks then to study for my test. Today feels like it's never ending and I just want to get home already and play with my puppy. I have three dogs, a golden retriever named Bailey, a cocker spaniel named Toby and the newest edition is a chihuahua named Leo. We also have three cats named Sophie, Charlie and Boo (they're all girls). We live on land and we have a barn kitty named Chloe. Yeah it seems like a lot of pets but they're loved and have so much space to roam and are all loved equally. Anyways, I'm going home tomorrow for the weekend for some fun family time. It was my parents anniversary yesterday, they have been married for 24 years. Does one get parents a gift for an occasion like this? Well if they do my presence will have to be enough. So today sucked. My test was a lot harder than the last one was so I'm unsure of how I did. I went over to my friends house and we made cupcakes for our other friends birthday and that sums up my day. Oh and then I went home and drank wine from a Starbucks tumbler. Wine Wednesday, always.


7 a.m.: awake, barley. Drove home, played with my little Leo then headed to my doctors appointment. I had to switch from my pediatrician and I love my new doctor! She's so smart and explains everything so you understand it too and I think that's important in a doctor. So I've been thinking, do I talk about my friends and relationships on here? It's a weird concept because I don't want to be talking shit about my friends I have drama with online, and when it comes to relationships that aren't serious, why would I broadcast that? The point of this blog was for me to put myself out there and be honest, and lately I feel like I'm not being completely honest. So I will be sharing more but I am going to change the names of the people just to keep their privacy. So it turns out I came home and my sister is gone ALL weekend, what a loser. I love my sister. Sometimes I want to kill her but for the most part she is my other half, part of my soul. Anyways, I've spent a majority of my night creating this new website for you guys so I really hope you are enjoying it.     


So today was a good day! I woke up and me and my mom went to the place where you get your passport done, got some coffee and then headed to the city for massages.  Nothing says mother/daughter bonding like getting massages and lunch together! I got an amazing 90 minute massage in a salt therapy cave. Yeah that sounds weird. Basically, the room was lined with Himalayan salts and had a saline humidifier allowing you to breathe in the salt at low doses to help with things like allergies, asthma, inflammation and more. It was exactly what I needed after this week. Plus it's like pre-finals relaxation. I've been eating so bad lately and spring break is in two weeks..... Ugh. But on a more positive note I haven't eaten any meat. I want to slowly cut cheese and foods with a lot of milk products like pizza, pancakes and my Starbucks drinks with milk. I'm lactose intolerant but clearly I have self control issues. I just watched Southpaw with my parents and now I'm going to make tea and go to bed. Crazy Friday night right?


So the first thing I did this morning was wake up and start working on some new blog posts. I was reading my "Don't Label Me" post to my parents and they said "maybe you shouldn't say that" and "make it a little lighter and not so dark". They didn't even hear the entire thing. To be honest, I don't care. I'm going to write about what I want to write about and if that offends someone I am truly sorry. If you finish reading it actually ends on a positive note but they never even heard that part. The things I write about mean something to me and I never want to post something that I don't truly care about. Anyways, rant over. I'm currently writing, eating dinner, drinking wine and watching tv. If that isn't multi tasking then I don't know what is. Today has been a lazy day, but it's nice. I was watching snapchat stories of my friends in Arizona at pool parties and I don't know how I used to do it. I feel like such a grandma these days, but in reality I'm the normal one because Arizona is just a whole other world. I just did some major online shopping, when everything comes in I can film a haul if y'all would be interested! I just watched The Family, which premiered Thursday night I believe and it was so good, definitely going to keep watching it.


Hello lovies, Sunday has been, well Sunday. I drove back to my college and then started homework. Today I released this blog and I'm so happy with how it's going. I have some super awesome posts coming and I really love that you guys are enjoying it. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you can add your email to subscribe (get updates on when I post), and in the top left click on the side bar to navigate through my content and contact me! I would love any suggestions or comments you guys might have and don't worry you can do it anonymously if you would like. I have lots of homework to do because it's the week before finals for me so I have a lot to prepare. I'm going to try to be more strict on my eating and stop eating junk food! What's the point of all this if I'm only eating bad foods that aren't helping my body? When I got back here to my apartment I saw that my Kylie Lip Kit was here! I'm so tempted to try it but I'm not going to open it until the rest of the stuff I ordered gets here so I can do a haul. Anyways hope you guys enjoyed reading this weekly journal entry type of blog. If you want to me to do more like this maybe once a month I totally can just like this post or comment down below. Hope you guys have a great week!
