Why sobriety sometimes isn't the answer

WARNING: This post may not be appropriate for some readers under the age of... ummm I don't know... 14ish??? I dunno... if you're old enough to watch Jersey Shore, you're probably old enough to read this post... just don't go telling your parents that I'm advocating these behaviors in your life. I'm not. This is my life. I understand not everyone can be as awesome as me (haha...) but really, if you don't wanna read about this kind of stuff, then I've given you fair warning so angry emails will not be responded to. Love ya!

So lately, I've been having a string of preeeetty fail weekends. Not going to lie, there's no one to blame but yours truly, but that's really beside the point. Why is it that every time you really decide to devote yourself to getting as trashed out of your mind as humanly possible, something always goes wrong and the night takes a turn for the worse? Well.... perhaps it was that whole plan to drink as much as possible, but whatever. Why can't I have one weekend where I drink an exorbitant amount and the powers that be decide to take a vacation day from their normal routine of raining hellfire down on my weekends? Let's try to plan this please.

The worst part of this past weekend? I was at one of my friend's parties...... completely s.o.b.e.r.


Have you ever been sober around a bunch of drunk girls having the time of their lives in some dingy bar? You would think watching girls make idiots of themselves by drunkenly (and sweatily... ew) grinding up on some other girl's date would make you feel a lot better about yourself and your life choices, but let's all be honest with ourselves: while your standing in that bar with the party raging around you, you really would rather be drunk enough to excuse that kind of behavior. It's painful knowing you're one of the only people who's going to remember this night in perfect detail. I did manage to get my dance on with my date, who was a good sport about the whole being-sober-because-I-took-a-year-and-a-half-to-get-ready thing. I guess it was kind of my fault, but again... who wants to accept responsibility when it's a LOT more fun to complain? Thanks for offering, but I happen to be a champion whiner over here.

Well... I will make a pledge: this weekend will be different. First of all, I'm going to hedge my bets by investing in some classy booze rather than drinking the 3 dollar gallon of vodka sitting in my bff's kitchen cabinet right next to the draino. Then, I'm dressing up in my classiest shit, doing my hair and makeup like it's my job and having the time of my life. Possibility of success maaayyyybe around 65%.... but we'll see. Hopefully the hypothesis is proven wrong (see? college is getting me somewhere...). Wish me luck!

Just a thought

Okay, I know I just posted, but I thought you guys should know something...

I just checked out my stats, and it tells you what people searched on google when they clicked the link to my blog, right? Well... apparently someone found my blog when they searched "where is chuck norris i'm feeling lucky"


Back from the dead

Okay, so I know I have been majorly MIA for a long time and I apologize! There's been a TON of stuff going on, including a 4 week tour around Europe.... let's just say the past few weeks have been craycray. I am so thankful to everyone who continues to check up on the blog, you guys are way more awesome than I am!!!

Anyways!!! On to the topic of today's post: YOUTUBE!!! This website has basically been the destroyer of all my free time lately. From hilarious people dancing their way to shameville, USA along to Brittany Spears all the way to awesome makeup tutorials, this place is so entertaining!!!

Just a thought for those of you who are shocked reading this: no, this is not the first time I've found out about Youtube (maybe YouTube?? I don't know the official spelling... I'm just going to say Youtube because it means that I have to hit the shift key less often... LAZY FINGERS), it has just been taking up an obscenely large amount of my time lately and thus I felt the need to rant about it a little.

SO. The latest thing that I've been obsessed with on Youtube is room tours. Some people just have sick rooms. I am so jealous. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but living in a college dorm room has somewhat dulled my sense of style in terms of decorating living spaces. Also, I'm sure people clean their rooms for these videos, but a part of me just can't come to terms with that and believes that some people actually live with their rooms spotless and organized ALL THE TIME which makes me feel self conscious about my own messy room, and I immediately want to buy every single organizing bin ever made at Target, but then I remember I have no money to buy these things with, and I sit and feel bad about my inability to organize my room and make it pretty.

Also addicting on Youtube: there is this person who makes these videos (I know... I'm using all my descriptive powers here) that are trailers for movies and video games, but he changes/adds lyrics to the background music that literally describe everything that's happening in the trailer and it's HILARIOUS!!!! I am in love with those videos. I may or may not be posting one at the end of this entry. You've been warned.

Also, I like StumbleUpon. New subject, hope you were ready for that. StumbleUpon recently led me to a site that was nothing but adorable pictures of PUPPIES!!!! It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life when that web page came up. Truly. Okay, maybe not, but it was up among the most adorable moments of my life. This choice has made StumbleUpon the Superman of websites in my eyes. Like, it websites could fight evil and wear awesome clothing, StumbleUpon would. End of story.

You're welcome. That is all.
