I really don’t get why people come to class if they are just gunna sit there and text message for the entire hour. I hate morning classes, so if I drag myself out of bed, I pay attention so it’s worth it.
If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a...– Bette Reese
A video of my trip home a couple weeks ago. It was my first time editing a video in iMovie, so I’m pretty proud of myself!
One of those blonde moments
So as I’m leaving Gainesville to make the four hour drive home, I managed to act like a total asshole and didn’t even realize till after. I was in the turning lane waiting at the light when this guy pulls up next to me and asks me to roll down my window. So I did, and he smiles and says, “Hey, can I jump in?” Now considering I am a college girl in a college town, I am...
OMG gas is $3.44! Thanks to iPhone I can blog while in the car wash :)
"Make it work"
The first episode of Project Runway’s season 4 premiered last night and it was awesome! For their first challenge, the designers had less than 24 hours to create an outfit that represented their creative vision. I planned on posting the challenge winner’s dress, but Bravo’s Web site sucks and won’t let me view all the dresses…so I had to settle for second best. This is Christian’s design. He is...
Although I am still bitter about my last psychology exam grade (considering I read every word of the assigned reading, went to class, typed out a huge study guide and still managed to get a 79%), I’m not completely unmotivated to read my text book. We are learning the theories of personality and I thought these were some funny misconceptions about how personalities are formed: Ancient...
Word's spell check blows
One of the great things about the iPhone is that it has an awesome ability to correct misspelled words. The touch keyboard is difficult at times, so this feature comes in handy (great for drunken texting!). For instance, if someone was texting on a normal phone, a text message might come out to say something like “Pigk mw uo niw”. But if you have an iPhone, it automatically corrects...
I wonder if there is any locally-grown ice cream.– themicruz
Being an advertising major, I have learned that it’s important/common sense to consider cultural differences (especially when translating into a different language) while marketing products in foreign countries. Thanks to my roommate’s Business Law textbook, here are some humorous examples of bad translations: “Come alive with Pepsi” translated to “Pepsi brings...
Addicted to Damage
While scanning this month’s Allure magazine, I came across an article that grabbed my attention. Like most girls my age, I use hot styling tools (hair dryer, straightener, etc.) on my hair almost every day. It’s sort of like an addiction; when you start blow-drying and straightening your hair, just letting it air-dry just doesn’t cut it anymore. My hair straightener is...
First Post Ever
