Because sometimes, you just have to eat ice cream and watch Hugh Grant dance.

I started to write a post about how my emotions are all out of control lately and I'm sick of it, blah blah. But then I decided it would be a much better idea to just give you this GIF of Hugh Grant dancing in Love Actually.

I'm in love with a fictional character. I

It's time for another Doctor Who post, mostly because Emily and I are getting ready to catch up on this current season's episodes tomorrow night. Or, you know, just because. Who says I need a reason to write about The Doctor? 

Also, this post will be in list form. You all know that I'm a little obsessed with lists.

Places (or time periods) I would want visit in the TARDIS:

We all have a list, don't we? Places we would want The Doctor to take us once he begs us to run away with him forever in the TARDIS. After much difficult thought, here's my list, in no particular order.

  1. The planet of the Oods. Is it weird that I would want to go here? It looked so beautiful. Also, the whole psychic singing thing is really interesting. On the other hand, their faces freak me out. Real bad.
  2. The library planet. I mean, other that that whole flesh-eating Vashta Nerada incident, come on guys. A whole planet. With every book in the universe ever.
  3. The 1960's, to see The Beatles play. But only if I actually get to listen to their music, and not a bunch of screaming girls. Although I can't exactly guarantee that I wouldn't start screaming along with them because OMIGODTHEBEATLES.
  4. Australia. But mostly to see Kirsti, who gave me the idea for this post, and because I've never been to Australia before. But sorry, Kirsti, you can't come with us. He's my Doctor, and I'm not sharing.
  5. Back in time to do nerdy music things, like see original performances of pieces by guys like Beethoven and Bach and Mozart and Puccini and other awesome dead guys.
I could put down a lot more, but it would make this post exceedingly long and I would probably lose your attention before I got the chance to ask you what YOUR list would be!

So, Whovians, what's your list? Where would you ask The Doctor to take you, should you ever get whisked away in the TARDIS?

Happy Birthday to ME.

This morning, the morning of my 26th Birthday, do you know what I woke up to find?

This lovely lady making the best birthday breakfast of ever for me!

Renee, one of my roommates and also one of my most favorite ladies ever made birthday pancakes for me!

Chocolate chip pancakes, complete with strawberries and homemade whipped cream! Also, bacon. That nearly overshadows the pancakes, because, well, bacon.

And yes, it tasted as good as it looks. What a great start to my birthday!

Too many pretty pictures!

 This is going to be another "I'm going to brag about how awesome my life is now" post. So if you don't like gloating, then you can go away. But on the other hand, there are going to be pictures. So if you like those, stick around.

Basically, on Saturday I spent all morning at the Missouri Botanical Garden. It's free for St. Louis residents on Wednesdays and Saturdays before noon. I went with my beautiful, amazing roommate Renee. Here is some of what I saw:


It was so beautiful. I wish you all could have been there, friends!

Give Me Stuff!


I turn 26 in a week. ONE WEEK. One year further into adulthood.

Don't worry. This won't be one of those "OMG I'm an adult I'm getting old somebody help me" posts.

This will be one of those "It's my birthday soon, so give me stuff" posts.

The following are acceptable birthday gifts:

  •  An all-expenses paid vacation, preferably to a place that looks like this:

  •  A boyfriend who looks and dresses like this:
  • A new phone, because mine is a piece of garbage.
  • New bedding for my bed, preferably some that doesn't look like I bought it a bajillion years ago.
  • A new car. I'll take this one, please:

I know I gave you short notice on this, so it's okay if they're a little late.

You should be jealous of my life.

Two weeks ago today, friends, I moved back to St. Louis, into a 3-bedroom house occupied by Renee, who is one of my oldest friends, and Jenny, who is shaping up to be an awesome new friend and roommate.

It's only been two weeks, but it already feels like home here. My bedroom is poorly insulated and is hot all the time, but I love it.

Look! I've even got pictures and stuff hanging up!

See? Isn't it cute?
Oh. And? Jenny has a dog. Meet Lottie.

Bottom line is, friends, I'm already having a blast.

3 Reasons Why You Should Stop Complaining and Change Your Life

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger this week, friends. Sundays are shaping up to be really busy days already. I won't have time to post, so I've decided to post on Mondays instead. Not that many of you probably care.

But on to today's post!

3 Reasons Why You Should Stop Complaining and Change Your Life

1. I don't like hearing you complain about it all the time.

I know this one is a bit hypocritical since we all know I'm the Queen of Complaining.

But seriously. I know a bunch of people who have complained about how they hate X, Y, or Z about their life and AREN'T DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

If it really bothers you that much? Do something about it.

Hate your major? Change it.

Hate your job? Look for a new one.

Hate your city? Move.

I don't care what you do, just make it so you're not constantly telling me about how much you hate your life.

2. Life is too short.

This is a big one. Life is too short to be living in a city you hate or working a job you despise.

Find something you love and go do it.

3. It'll make you happy.

Seriously. Who doesn't want to be happy in life? Silly people, that's who. And none of you seem like silly people to me, friends.

Disclaimer: I never said any of this would be easy.

Here in America, especially, we've become lazy. We think things should just be easy, and if it's difficult, it's not worth doing.

That is so unbelievably false. Sometimes the most difficult things to accomplish are the most worthwhile.

You might have to search a while to find a job you love. You might have to work more to save money to move. You might actually have to put a little effort into your life instead of sitting on your ass.

But if you can get over this belief nowadays that things should be easy, then you just might change your life. And it could be awesome.
