Happy Halloween!

As Halloween comes to a close, I hope you enjoyed this one!

Today we quoted movies in German. "Boo, you whore."

Well, two of the four groups presented their movie projects....we took a scene from a movie and translated and adapted our own German version of it. My partner and I did a scene from The Wizard of Oz. The other did a montague of clips from Mean Girls. We tried explaining some of the scenes to our prof, who had never seen the movie....didn't go so well.

"On Wednesdays we wear pink."

Attempt at being a hazy Halloween creep.

My lovel-E friends made this GIANT birthday card for me!! And LOOK! That's me in the top right corner! Haha my friend Haivy has a sweet modern instant-pix camera from Nikon...?


Here's to the new month....November! Woo! Fresh pair of contacts on the first of every month! ....ok, now that you know my hygienic routines...

Have a lovely start of November and continuation of's becoming chilly but that just means more layers and layers and layers!

Monster Mash

Yesterday we had classes cancelled [happy birthday to me!] and today they were cancelled as well due to that attention-whore, Sandy.

Last year on my birthday, I woke up to a snow storm....this year, a hurricane. What shall be in London next fall?? Perhaps Mother Nature will spare me because it's my 21st and I'll be studying abroad.

Birthday girl was excited to receive Tangled and The Princess and the Frog from Mummy :) ....along with enough snacks to see me through the storm.

My sneaky friends threw me a party and completely surprised me with a giant card and a birthday cupcake and people sang to me at the campus C-Store. And yes, I wore my crown all day. It seemed like the proper birthday thing to do.

Oh, glad to be surrounded by such wonderful people! They keep me in stitches and I love them to pieces.

New Express dress! Can't wait to wear this out somewhere...

The power went out a few times last time while we watched Paranormal Activity but it sort of added to the suspense [we've seen it before so we knew what was coming]. Afterwards, a couple of us did the Ouija board. There was quite a bit of energy between the five of us; I was surprised. Halloween mood....had to do something spooky and fun!

Today is my friend Trevor's birthday! He's older than I am haha. So 20 doesn't seem so old...although my sister reminded me that I'm now officially two decades old. Thanks, Sis.

Time to work on my management paper a little longer....being a total bum today in my attire. But that's ok, I haven't ventured outside the building once today.

No, no, no. Terrible news of the night.

This just doesn't seem right.

These last few teen moments

So this is my last hour and a half of being a teenager...although technically i wasn't born until after 8pm. Trick-or-Treat baby! :D Surprise, Sissy! You received a baby sister instead of more candy from Mummy and Fajer!

Ok, that was silly.

But it feels longer being a teenager. No longer being able to use the excuse, "hey, I'm still a teenager even though I'm an adult." But 20 is a nice even number.

I love Jiff peanut butter cups to go...this is what happens when I don't want to dirty a spoon. Appropriate behavior for a 19 year old. Never lose your silliness, no matter what age.

Ta-da! King Leonidas and Queen Gorgo from 300. Oh, my goodness, this video was an incredible help for hair inspiration!! I did the one with the gold braided within two strands of hair. I had extra hair so I tied a gold ribbon around the 5 together and braided down the rest of the extra hair in those 5 sections as one large unit.

Lovely just looks so BA. My bandfront toepoint is so ladylike.

My King
Interesting night to say the least....

1 1/2 hour countdown! :)

Due to Hurricane Sandy, classes have been's to sleeping in and tackling homework and studying.

I'm ready for this exam. Switching over in my mind to German to finish that homework. Tonight is work overload, full steam ahead.

Thank goodness for all the work I accomplished yesterday and lack of major workload from my classes today!

Happy start to the weekend!

And happy fancy Friday!

Where have you been?

Dear Thursday, where have you been all week?

I love Thursdays...they're generally a gooood day, and Friday is just around the corner!

Yesterday was hump day, celebrating every week by not wearing pants! No, tights are not pants.

Today the headaches have, for the most part, body aches a little less due to the 8 1/2 hours of sleep i managed to get in. Luckily, I did not wake almost every hour like I had Tuesday night....

I was a bit ill :/

I'm missing the nice weather we had yesterday....I'm just not ready for cold weather yet. We're predicted to get rain on my birthday, Monday. Last year it snowed on my birthday. Some are saying we may get snow this
Time to work on some Deutsch homework. I'm feeling productive today! Oh my, Thursdays really are great days.

My Pretty!

Does that line ring a bell? Funny how certain phrases instill such thoughts and near-automatic recollection of the movie or show from which it came.

For my one German class, we have a group project assignment which involves taking a movie scene and creating a German dialogue for it. How cool is that?

I'm excited to actually do this....even though I have a bunch of other things to do. Hobey ho, let's go! [Pendragon btw]

Pink Week!

Ok, ok, i didn't wear pink today....but i did donate some money to breast cancer research and have two strands of hair dyed!

It came out pretty well :) Very much pleased....except i must continue to scrub off the pink hairdye from my hands for the next couple days.

I feel like such a contradiction....AE necklace and top with HotTopic pants and Converse....preppy/goth/hipster combo.

A bright outfit for a dreary day...

Soo...Lovely found this exciting discovery about breast cancer. A cure is on the way!

Rigid matrix of times and names

That time of the semester is coming soon...scheduling. Only minor frenzy....working out my schedule for next fall for London since that shall affect scheduling for the semester prior to that, next spring. Phew...i got this.

I'm excited for London!! case you couldn't tell.

It's healing quiiiite nicely.

Have you heard Taylor Swift's new album?? Downloaded it off of iTunes earlier this afternoon. She had already released a few songs as singles in the days leading up to the release of the album, but that's ok.

Sad Beautiful Tragic is pretty good...sad, but then again, i like sad songs. They have so much emotion and such a raw-ness about them...

Check out the trailor for Perks:

Fall[ish] Favorites

Today, based upon the weather, seems like a very silly day to post this, but there you have it...

Besides the obvious favorites, Halloween and my birthday, fall holds other fun things. No, not apple cider. Some people absolutely love apple cider. Me, on the other hand, am weird and don't like "normal" things like apple cider and mashed potatoes and vinegar [i literally will run away from the smell].

But fall...

  • has Halloween oreos mmmm

  • is the time to pull out boots yays!

  • snuggling weather...can't get enough of this!
c/o jealous!

  • is warm enough for just a light cozy sweater...

I'm diggin' the photo despite the blurr. Life isn't always crystal clear.

  • has rain. I love the rain as long as it's not storming...storms are nice as long as I don't have to go outside. Rain is conditional :P

Just got my tragus done :) soo content! Surprisingly, it only twinged a bit when they put in the jewelry...ugh just realized my gold and silver clash.

Side notes....
Jess and i went to the little Lebanon farmers' market and had a blast! Jess got a gyro and i had a spanakopita mmmmm. We need to hit up Saturday's Market sometime. And look for Lego candy. It's my absolute favorite.

A Rocket to the Moon's new album comes out 29 January 2013!!! Can't wait!!

And four days until Taylor Swift's new album, Red!

Oh, and i watched American Pie for the first time. I just know realized how much 90s "teen" movies repeat the same songs....many of the songs in American Pie were also in 10 Things I Hate About You. No, not the stupid show based upon the movie, which is based upon Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. I mean the Heath Ledger version.

Have a lovel-E weekend and enjoy the nice weather before it's too cold to go without a jacket!
