this past weekend was our annual 'fall break', or as i like to call it 'fall friday'. we really just get one day off, so i think it's more appropriate. anyway, after closing the opera on thursday night, i hung out in waco then proceeded to sleep in WAY too long on friday and go home for the weekend. :) it was a good time, i basically just rested the whole time and saw a few friends and hung out with the fam. as my camera has been extra stupid recently, i just snapped a few shots with my phone (sorry again for the bad quality) but here's what i've been up to lately:
1. best friends circa 2009.
2. common grounds small cup = shockingly small.
3. costume for signor deluso + melanie.
4. t.j. proposed to me again. i said yes. who could say no to that face?
5. precious tiny origami via rob.
6. do they actually *want* to sell beer? i can't tell.
7. fail cake and mrs. kayla.
8. cookie (the cat).
9. mom's weird nail polish removing ritual.
10. COOKIES (the noms).
11. mason jar + wine glass feet = texas class.
12. fail cake take 2 = pass cake.
13. yellow pages in the pool.
i've also recently been hooked on parks and recreation, which is a fantastic show if you haven't seen it. amy pohler is gold. i've probably watched this clip 100 times in the past week.
and this has been my song for the day (as my mother bought me new birks this weekend). WINNING.
i hope you guys have a fabulous week. get you some new shoes.

rachael and i are officially crazy cat ladies. literally, every time we meet new people, we always end up talking about our cat, and showing off endless pictures...so i figured i'd save us all a little time, and blog about it so that those of you who don't know our fabulous cat juno could get in on the fun. she is literally the funniest animal i have ever encountered...i decided that the best way to get to know her was to just interview her. it went a little something like this:
name: juno i.e. janky-lip juno, juny-b, janks...
occupation: lazy house cat/daughter/entertainment.
favorite things to do: lay on laptops, homework, or wherever is most inconvenient for my moms, claw at the carpet PURELY to piss people off, clean myself excessively, give the stank eye, taste lotion, run outside about 3 feet then get scared and freeze, hide in bags, eat whatever new hippie cat food my moms buy for me, poop.
faces: pissed off and pleased asian.
favorite color: blue, like my giant eyes. just *try* and say no to me.
catch-phrase: "*long stream of obscenities*", "are you using this? your wrists look miiiighty comfy while resting on that laptop, i think i'm just gonna...scootch in...here...*plop*", and "ask not what you can do for your moms, ask what your moms can do for you."
favorite tv shows: house, nip/tuck, and keeping up with the kardashians.
least favorite thing ever: being lady-like, and that squirrel costume i have to wear for halloween.
favorite hang-out spots: on top of the love seat, mommy rachael's bed, on that red blanket, in any open bag...
most valuable asset: my extra big top lip and my cleav. (see above photos)
biggest fear: being less than the most important thing to my moms. :)
....there you have it. the queen has spoken. now she's off to lounge around or maybe eat and take a nap. it's a rough life for a cat, y'all.
have a great weekend!

nobody can really epitomize what going back to school feels like like my sweet juno can. this has pretty much been my face for the past few weeks. this post is a bit of an apology for being so shotty in my posting, but also to give a little insight as to what's been going on around here...
well, school is officially back in full-swing. 19 hours, 2 operas, a senior recital to worry about, and a part time job. who ever said that senior year was supposed to be easy was a liar. this is certainly my busiest semester yet. blah. enough complaining. on a better note, here are a few things that have gone down since school started up again:
1. i have managed to not break a phone. yet. *knock on wood*
2. i have also managed to park close enough to a drunk idiot to get my car scratched up. dumb.
3. i have watched the 'sondheim birthday concert' about 6 times in order to keep my sanity in tact.
4. i have discovered my drunk kitchen and truly stopped caring about everything else in my life. this girl is hilarious.
5. i have ran over 133 freshmen with my car.
6. i have discovered how much i love 'egg in the basket's. they are perfect for a quick snack.
7. i have painted my nails TWICE (for the first time in years) in order to see if i could stop biting my nails. it's working.
8. i have fallen back in love with canned green beans.
9. i have attended approximately 3000 rehearsals.
10. i have been reminded of how great my school friends are.
11. i have become aware of how far 1,132 miles exactly is. it's pretty damn far, y'all.
basically, school is school. we all tend to live weekend to weekend, don't we? i am trying to live afternoon to afternoon at this point, haha. the weekends are always too far away.
music for fall 2011:
have a good week.

as once again we all find ourselves back to the old grindstone, (i'm not entirely sure if that's the phrase, but for today, let's just pretend that i'm right,) i've decided to come up with a few 'deep thoughts rules' for how i believe things should be around campus. namely for survival, and the general happiness of all students.
if you are a freshman leaving collins, and you are crossing the street when i am CLEARLY only feet from you, ignoring me completely doesn't make me want to run you over any less.
if you take 2000 hours asking about all of the different drinks at common grounds when there are people behind you in line, you deserve a good kick in the pants. watch out, y'all.
if you don't befriend people outside of your major, you will end up wanting to jump off of the garage-mahal.
if you get hungry at 1am, occasionally try some self-respect and eat at the 24 hour subway, don't always go straight for penland. it gets worse every time.
if you think that you see a friend of yours walking around campus, call them to make sure before you yell at them. there are a trillion people at this school, you will almost always be incorrect.
if a squirrel gets frighteningly close to you, don't make eye contact, just keep walking. they can smell your fear.
if you are *that guy* that runs the bear trail all delicious without a shirt, for the love of PETE, keep it up. you may get a few honks from me, but it really is for the greater common good..
happy studies, y'all!

there are certain points of hilarity in life that don't really need a lot of explanation or reasoning. this is one of them. candy cane boxers that have been in my parking lot for a week and a half. they don't seem to want to go away. come 2-second sprinkle or shine.
(yes, question marks really appear above my head when i am confused.)
do you guys love moments like this as much as i do? useless laughs are the best kind.

so, this past weekend the a cappella choir from baylor went on a retreat to glen rose, texas to work on music and bond! it was fun (exhausting, but fun) and no one was surprised when i ran around snapping pictures of everyone...
the retreat was located at glen lake camp and retreat center. they had a blob, y'all. i never got to try it out because i was too busy napping as often as possible, but my friend kaylie did get some pictures of others enjoying the water park.
note: most of the pictures take place in the rehearsal room. try and count the snuggies, it was FREEZING in that room, and we all brought snuggies and blankets and sweaters to deal with the extreme cold, even when it was extremely hot outside.
there was also a mouse situation that happened in the girls' cabin. the situation being that we had a live-in mouse that terrorized the cabin, which certainly never left things boring...
all-in-all, it was a fun trip. i also got appointed historian of a cappella, since i'm constantly snapping pictures and bother people. i guess they decided to make some lemonade, am i right? (bad joke?)
hope you guys had a good weekend!
