Giddy but Inconclusive

Alrighty-o fam. Here we are, still giddy and such despite having worked a full shift on my feet today and wanting to pass out.

Now, we have made it this far with my college choice and major decision, here comes the hard part: choosing a school. I can recall quite vividly crying on my couch as I scrolled over every college website I possibly could, without having a major in mind. Never in my life did I think I would have to complete this process all over again unless of course, I would be attending graduate school (besides the point). However, at this point, I have a solid major and minor combo (Spanish major with photojournalism minor)  and need to find a school containing both, being cheap, and probably closer to home. I didn’t really miss home but it’s a request of my family. Also,  my training I have to go to is based out of the midwest so it helps that I’ll be closer. Also, I sort of want a smaller school because I felt like I knew like 2 people at SDSU because of how big it is.

Funny isn’t it, how when choosing my first college I wanted as far from home as I could get, big school, warm weather, and a school with a football team. After me realizing that my parents weren’t just going to sneak up on me any random time, attending one football game, and realizing I hated the big school atmosphere, I want the complete opposite from a school. I’m still on boat with the school being as cheap as possible, but honestly, who isn’t?

We have a variety of schools to choose from, not too large of a variety but enough wiggle room to have a few good schools that I’ll be sure to find at least one I love.

The school choices (so far) are…

  1. Cardinal Stritch University (Wisconsin)
  2. Otterbein University (Ohio)
  3. University of Indianapolis (Indiana)
  4. University of Tennessee-Martin (Tennessee)
  5. Andrews Universty (Michigan)
  6. Murray State University (Kentucky)
  7. Ashland University (Ohio)
  8. Winona State University (Minnesota)
  9. The University of Findlay (Ohio)
  10. Xavier University (Ohio)

I’m sort of partial to Xavier University in Cincinnati because that was actually my top choice behind SDSU but I didn’t choose it because they have no football team, it was small, and religious (I know you don’t have to be of that religion to attend but still, Theology 101… really?!)

So, who knows. Might end up at Xavier, might end up at one of the others I mentioned. Or I may even end up elsewhere.

Update on my current schooling situation. I will not be attending ASU in the fall and will most likely be staying here and working or babysitting and whatnot. However, my aunt is in town from Phoenix and still wants me to live with her. So I might go live with my aunt for the fall semester and work but honestly. who knows? Not me.

I have a lot on my plate for the next few weeks and a lot of tough decisions to make. However, I’m happy (and tired) as can be.

New hair… Follow up

Well friends, hello. So, as yo all saw in my most recent post. I dyed my hair yesterday and am absolutely in love wit it. Most of the people I know enjoy it or at least saying they like it for ,y sake. However some people have expressed their disgust for it. I decided to share my findings on red/pink hair lovers, and judgemental pricks whom I have no time for. here we go

My mom: She did it for me so she can’t hate it too much. She thinks it’s weird because she isn’t use to it

My dad: Very judgemental man but is just content that it isn’t permanent (yet)

My sister: I’m not too sure. She hated it when we were in the midst but enjoys me pretending to be Princess Fiona from Shrek when I use my face mask

My grandma: “Red hair??” Not negative or positive, merely shocked

My grandpa: “Getting ready to go back I see” was his initial response… Midway through dinner and he chimed in with “Going for the Raggedy Ann look but with longer hair.” I thought it was funny

My aunt: “wow that is pink” She wasn’t a fan

Her husband: “That is a wig… right?” wasn’t a fan either

My mom’s facebook friends:

  • “Read head rock! ;)” thanks
  • “Is that Aztec red from L’oreal?” get it bc I’m an aztec
  • Lovely so different” my neighbor is rad
  • “Rebel!’ my great aunt is cute
  • “:o”
  • “Well, I DID love the blond…”
  • “Wow!!! You are gorgeous in any color.” THANKS  AUNT PAM
  • “Oh shit! You are beautiful, don’t screw with it!” BYE
  • “I dyed my hair red too” he has no hair
  • “I wish I saw your dad’s face”
  • “Yummy”
  • “Marisa (my parents’ friends’ 3 year old) said she likes it!” which is actually the only opinion I cared for

My friends:

  • “ilysm youre the coolest for having fun hair (like I used to… sigh”
  • “alicia you look so good!!!”
  • “IM CRYING UR BEAUTIFUL”
  • “it looks so good!!! (heart eye emoji)”
  • “I hate it haha” u r irrelevant bye
  • “I see you’ve joined me in the red head club”
  • “It looks amazing! what made you do it?”
  • “I love it lol didn’t think you had the balls to”
  • “I dig this”
  • “^^I agree”
  • “hey I think u fell asleep on cotton candy…… I LOVE IT”
  • “WHAT IT LOOOKS SOOOO GOOD”
  • “OMG (HEART EYE EMOJI)”
  • “Suite life of Zack and Cody” refe0rring to my caption
  • “Aww now your just like me <3” wrong your omg
  • “Love”
  • “OMG I love it”
  • “I get you and your references” referring to my caption
  • “Dead.” referring to my caption
  • “Looks like you’re living the suite life” referring to my caption
  • “what’s the capital of Honduras” referring to my caption

 

Anyway here is what people have to say. However, all that matters is that I love it which I do

Happy New Year

Hi folks. So, while most people are sound asleep at 1:38 in the morning hoping to wake up in 5 ish short hours t head to the gym (to complete one week of their lose weight new years resolution) or head to work or school, I sit here in bed with not a care in the world… except for registering for classes and hoping my classes I want for 2nd semester haven’t been filled up yet. Quite an easy life for me it seems.

For this post. I have decided to discuss some goals I have for the new year. I will also (hopefully) follow up on them a few times a year to see how they’re going.

  1. Become vegan. (Robbed Target of fruits, veggies, and other vegan necessities)
  2. Become Buddhist (I bought the book “Walk like a Buddha” and can’t wait to read it)
  3. Blog at least 4 times a week (not including during midterms or finals)
  4. Lost 30 pounds (I’ve been lower than 30 pounds lower than what I am but it’s a start)
  5. Keep my room clean (A clean room is a clean mind)
  6. Make new friends
  7. Get 10,000 steps 5/7 days of the week (I have a fitbit so she counts them for me)
  8. Get a new tattoo and piercing (not sure where or what but I want them)
  9. Try 5 new coffee places (I love coffee and cute coffee shops)
  10. Love myself (something I’ve been working on for years and will continue to work on)
  11. Take care of myself. (Brush my teeth, eat good, floss, take vitamins, shave, tweeze my eyebrows, get my nails done, lotion my body, etc)

This is only 11 but I probably have more things but it’s almost 2am and I’m loopy

Talk to you all soon

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 380 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
