Procrastinate should be my middle name...

So I've been home now for over a month. No job, no classes, no real pressing engagements of any kind and yet I find myself sitting here on the eve of my last day at home with a monstrous to-do list and not finding myself the least bit surprised. By Tuesday morning I've got to:

  • Find some tasteful, preferably purple (as it is the wedding color) stationery paper to do invitations on for my sister's bridal shower. Proceed to prep said invitations for mailing.
  • Open a savings account, because no folks - I actually don't have one and it seems if it's my checking account, I will find a way to spend it. (note to self: current spending habits are not going to get me any closer to a new car or a spring break trip somewhere warm next year).
  • Call my credit card company for outrageous late charges on a bill I know I paid on time.
  • Search my bedroom (and house for that matter) for any miscellaneous items I may have lost. My mother says I'm messy...I like to think that I'm trusting with my belongings and am willing to share with anyone else around my general area and do so by leaving them out for others to enjoy. :] 
  • Meet up with an old friend whom I've yet to see this break but who I've talked to and promised to visit with numerous times. don't judge me too much, we're "busy" ya know what i'm sayin'?
  • Find a cute little book where I can log my maid of honor expenses so I can divide them with the other bridesmaids later...I don't have a money tree after all.
  • And finally, get some sort of menu of what I'd like to serve at said bridal shower that is approximately a month and a half away.

Definitely do-able, if I ever get my little butt in gear. That's one of my biggest flaws, I'm not very motivated on day-to-day tasks. I've never been able to stick with a workout plan, I always put off writing papers, reading for class or doing anything I remotely don't want to do until the very last minute. I don't even like getting dressed before I know where I'm going because if I have to change, it's a wasted outfit. Perhaps this will be something I'll work on for 2009. God knows it should be something I work on, but whether or not I find the motivation to work on my lack of motivation is another story. Any ideas? :]

thoughts on the rich and famous

So I was struggling with the topic of my second post. Currently, I'm at home on my winter break from college and therefore there isn't too many exciting things to talk about in my life. This past month has been spent catching up with my family, spending quality nights with some of my best friends and a whole lot of knitting and tv on dvd. 

So since I haven't had much to do I found myself watching the Golden Globes on Sunday night. I don't know how many watched, but I'm sure  many of you are familar with the alleged feud between Jennifer Anniston and Angelina Jolie. Now I've heard numerous people gush over Angelina's beauty, and well there really is no denying that. However, am I the only one who sees her as a frighteningly cold, distant woman? I mean I can't imagine having my privacy invaded as the stars do (as I sit anonymously behind my computer screen sharing my thoughts with the world :] ), but I mean they did ask for it. They didn't become a world famous actor without WANTING to be one and in that right, opening up their lives to public view. So forgive me if I don't feel too bad for them. But she just seems so rude and cold to everyone she encounters. It's hard to believe she does so much good for so many people. It seems as if the woman doesn't have a soul, or feelings, like really, a surgeon may slice her open and find nothing but an abysmal black hole. So I suppose my point is that if I were Brad, you know, possibly the most beautiful man to have ever graced the silver screen with his presence, I would have stuck with Jen. Not only is she gorgeous, but she seems to really appreciate what she's got. And as for Angelina, it wouldn't kill her to crack a smile once and again. (And people complain that V.Becks doesn't smile.)

First Post

Hi all!

I'm Ms. B and this is my first ever blogging experience. I'm a single gal barely into my twenties, aka not yet legally drinking. I come from a very small town where everyone seems to know your business in the Northeast and am in the midst of completing my bachelor's degree at a small liberal arts school in a major city on the east coast. I've got a newfound appreciation for wine and I've always appreciated shopping (even though I lack the funds), cheesy pop tunes and trashy television.

I hope to use this blog as an outlet for the sometimes unbelievably entertaining things that happen in my life for no apparent reason, and also as one for sometimes frustrating situations. As of now, nobody knows I have this blog, and I think I'll keep it that way, for awhile at least. 

My wish is that you enjoy reading and find entertainment in my day-to-day musings on my everyday life, and if you don't...well don't be too harsh. :)
