Happy Valentine's Day!

Since I was away at school on Valentine's Day I had to wait until tonight to celebrate it with my Valentine! Anyways Friday night reminded me how bad it was to travel home by bus. The bus is never on time, always takes longer than expected, and overall tiring! But that doesn't matter once I finally get to sleep in my own bed again :)

Anyways, tonight was perfect. Mark picked me up around 5 and we headed out to eat at Grand Lux Cafe which is a sister company of the Cheesecake Factory. But of course, we first made a stop at Best Buy on the way in because Mark has an obsession with collecting blu rays. Dinner was great and the restaurant was packed. I had my favorite cheesecake which is just the plain original cheesecake. We both finally got to watch Silver Linings Playbook after dinner and it was so good. I went into the movie without knowing anything about the plot and that is usually how I like going into these movies other than reading the book beforehand. But the camera work was really interesting. It almost had a home movie feel to it and the movie had an offsetting humor to its serious moments but I totally see that as just a characteristic of the movie. Overall I enjoyed it. Jennifer Lawrence was amazing and totally a natural. And I think the best theme that I got out of the movie was just finding someone just was weird as you can be the person you're meant to be with. Corny.

Afterward we got some bubble tea and went home. When Mark came to pick me up he got out of his car with a bouquet of flowers. I hate sounding like those girls that ABSOLUTELY love showing off their relationship and completely making single girls, especially desperate ones, pissed off or annoyed and hate the entire couple population. But I'll take Valentine's as my one day to show off. But when I saw him, I thought it was the sweetest thing ever and just perfectly what I imagine the beginning of a date would be like haha. I admit I was a little embarrassed because I thought my parents would peek out of the window and see him but oh well. I know Mark tries really hard to impress me because it's pretty hard to get a reaction out of me so if you're reading this right now, I was truly impressed.

Tonight I feel extremely blessed and content. I appreciate having Mark in my life and being able to celebrate our amazing relationship in moments like these. Good job tonight babe. I love you<3

Kendall and Kylie Fail

So despite the armageddon type of snow storm this weekend I managed to get home for this short weekend in one piece. This weekend I hoped to score some antibiotics to finally get rid of this menacing cough and hopefully be able to see Kendall and Kylie Jenner at my local mall. Although I was able to successfully see the doctor and get my antibiotics, I did not get to see Kendall and Kylie. :( I woke up a little too late this morning even though I had intentions of getting up earlier than that but it has always been impossible for me to wake up early or on time. Whenever my alarm goes off in the morning, I always find ways on hitting snooze until I really have to get up. When I finally did get to the mall this morning, they ran out of wristbands which would ensure me a guaranteed spot into the store once Kendall and Kylie arrived... However me and Mark found a line that was for non-wristband owners but within an hour and a half of waiting, we left the line. So I never got to see Kendall and Kylie. I learned that whenever I intend on going to these things, I need to make sure I stay hopeful and be an early bird.

Because of my disappointment today, I splurged on the following candles at Bath and Body Works. I love their entire tropical candle collection for this spring. I can't wait until I come back home again next weekend to actually go shopping. Anyways, heading back to school tomorrow morning and it'll be another long week!

Sick With a Virus

This past Thursday I caught a virus. My body ached and I had coughing fits. I was seriously miserable. But thankfully, my roommate decided to go home this weekend giving me a chance to have the room to myself and fully recuperate. It's tough being this sick on your own. I'm usually lazy but being this sick makes me ten times more lazy. Usually I could just call my mom's name and say that I want some soup. Then twenty minutes later there will be some hot chicken noodle soup and some crackers on my bed side table.

I hate being sick during the school year. It's so inconvenient. Last semester I was terrified of getting sick and then having my grades compromised because I can't perform well. Funny enough, I'm sick at the beginning of this semester and I have my first test coming up in about five days. Some of my quiz grades have already been reflective on how I've been feeling. I hope I'm feeling at least 90% well by Sunday night. Unfortunately, I go to college where it's seriously 15 degrees out at noon every day and there's a lot of walking to do when going class to class.

I can't wait until I get to go home in about two weeks. It has been a stressful start to this semester and I think everyone on my floor would agree. Especially with the cold and a virus going around. I can't believe it but I'm putting most of my trust on a groundhog. This morning Phil the groundhog didn't see his shadow indicating that spring is just around the corner. I hope he's right haha.
