Last Weekend

Today I'm gonna do a recap.
Of last weekend.
So, I'm just a week late.
It's not a big deal...
Better late than never, right?

Last weekend, I finally got to use my birthday present from my friends.
See, they bought me a ticket to visit them in Austin, TX.
They all go to UT so it was the perfect gift since I got to see all of them at once.
I flew out on Friday morning.
Bright & early at 6:25..
But it was ok.
It meant I got to spend more time there.

Friday, they showed me around ATX a little bit, and I hung out at their apartment.
Then that night, we celebrated.
One of my best friends just got her American citizenship.
So they threw a red, white, and blue party to celebrate.

It was so much fun.
Everything was themed and it was so cute. 
And apparently red, white, and blue, is an easy theme since every single guest was dressed up.

Saturday, we went to breakfast at this cute restaurant on the water. 
And then we saw Pitch Perfect. 

Sunday, I had to leave.
It was sad since it was such a great weekend
 and I rarely get to see them anymore since I live so far away now,
but sometimes returning home is the best part of a vacation.
It's good to get back into the flow of your daily life after a great weekend with best friends.

Well, until my normal was messed up this week due to an ear infection..
It kicked my butt this week and I was basically knocked out for two days.
I am feeling much better now, but I am still not up to par. 
Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back at 100%. 
Now just to get on top of all the work I missed being sick.. 

Being in Austin last weekend made me realize something.
As much as I would love to go to school with all of my closest friends and be much closer to home,
I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
Austin is a very cool place, but Lubbock feels more like home to me.
I see myself here and I love every moment of my life here.
I miss my friends dearly, but I know that my life is working out the way that it is supposed to.

Does it make me crazy?

Oh, hey, look at me doing a link-up on time.
That's right.
I actually have a free moment today.
Mostly because my class was cancelled.
Also because I've deemed today a lazy day and 
have yet to get dressed.
That's a lie. I did make it to Chickfila in less than 6 minutes this morning
rushing to get me some chicken minis.
You better believe those were the best chicken minis I've had in a long time. 

Ok, before I head of to my next class, I'm gonna tell yall about my crazy.
And trust me theres plenty of it.
The link up is called
"Does that make me crazy?"
But here's the thing, I already know all of these things make me crazy.
SO I'm not really asking.
I'm just telling you. 

1. I'm afraid of showering if I'm at home alone.
Hopefully, I don't have to live by myself any time soon because
I can't handle showering when I'm alone. 
And when I'm in a bathroom with a window.

2. This leads me in to number two.
Well, I'm also afraid of people watching me while I shower.
In my bathroom at home, I had a small window and I was convinced people could see me at night.
Granted, it was on the second story and faced my backyard.
But we aren't concerned about that, it was obviously a real possibility for someone to see me.

3. Apparently all of these have to do with showering.
I am deathly afraid that someone will break in and murder me while I'm in the shower.
I'm mostly not afraid of this at any time but when I'm in the shower.
And I think it largely has to do with my nakedness while showering.
I mean, honestly, do you think that you'd be able to defend yourself to your best ability when naked?
Because I certainly don't.

4. I'm slightly afraid of the sound that vacuums make.
Take out the slightly, and that would be a true statement.
I try to avoid vacuuming at all cost, but I also really love when my floors are clean.
It's a catch 22.

5. I love to take notes.
But I hate when my handwriting doesn't look good.
If it doesn't look good, I will never study what I wrote down.

6. I love the smell of gasoline, leather, and skunks.
I find them fascinating and I never want the smell to fade.
Except with skunks, the reason I like it so much is because it's temporary when I walk by.
And I find it a really interesting smell.

That's all I'm willing to admit on the blog today.
Trust me, it's only the tip of the ice berg when it comes to my neurotic tendencies.
But for now, I'm off to class.
Which really means, I'm off to go laugh at my teacher for an hour and a half while I eat some skittles.
They're the same thing if you think about it.
