Focus

I need to begin to focus more. I mean the title of the blog is Scatterbrained so that shouldn’t be much of a surprise. I was so stoked to start this blog then I got the idea to start a YouTube channel and then some other ideas. 

I realized this is why nothing I start is ever great. I’m so quick to abandon one project for a new, shinier one. But that ends now! I am going to try to blog here once a week (I’ll work up to doing it more often). 

No idea what I’ll blog about because my life is quite boring. Warning: This blog will have no theme. If I want to blog about fashion, I’ll do that. If I want to blog about my current obsession with home decor, I’ll do that. And if I’m feeling super nerdy (but yet girly), expect a post about super cute tech accessories. But mostly it’ll be about my boring, average, slightly weird life

Long Time, No Blog!

First off, I would like to say this is the reason I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. I make one every year and never follow through. It’s sad but true.

Anywho, I should update you on my life! So guess I what I went and did?! I got a JOB at my school’s bookstore!! Granted, it’s only temporary. They needed to hire people for the Rush and I was one of those people! I freaking loooove my job!!! There is nothing particularly glamorous about it but there is something pretty neat about getting that paycheck (did I mention I qualified for tax exemption)! Also, I’m a  big kid so playing with the scanner is pretty awesome! [I’ll be writing another post on this later]

Let’s see… what else is there? Oh yea! We got hit by the mondo snowstorm that took over the east coast! It was crazy! We got four inches of snow which is a LOT for Georgia. Everyone was playing in it and it was fun to watch what people could come up with to do in the snow. Some guys hooked a rope to the back of a truck and snowboarded while the truck pulled them super fast and it seemed that every guy with a huge truck decided to go drifting in the snow. It was super cool and I pray that next time it snows my boyfriend has that truck he wants so we can do it too! [Post on the snow also coming soon]

Welp, that’s pretty much all the interesting-ness I have for you today.. see you soon readers!

My School Was Made for Rich Kids

In my last post, I shared with you all about the reggae club I went to. Well today I shall tell you what happened when I returned. First, let me give you some backstory.

Ok, so my boyfriend had been here basically all week and tht particular day he left for work ant about 9:15. Well at 10:00 my best friend, Tiffany, called me and asked if I wanted to go out. I of course said yes. She then told me I had an hour to get ready because we had to be there by 12 so we could get in for a dollar. Being the broke college student that I am, I complied and rushed to get dressed and get my hair cute (well as cute as possible without a relaxer). I rushed out my room and to my friend Nikko’s room where we were meeting.

So after the club I was super tired because it was past 3am. I was so excited to get in my bed and sleep the night away when I realized I had left my key card, which I need to get in the building and my apartment, in my room. Not the best place for it to be. So I bammed on the door for half an hour, but my roomies were sleep and couldn’t hear me. I then went on a search to find the number for the RA on duty, which happened to be on the top floor (great place to put it guys). I called the RA to let me in and was notified that it would cost me 25 smackaroos!!! Ironically, I saved 19 dollars at the club and spent 25 to get back in. I really had no choice so I told the RA it was fine and she let me in. It took two seconds.

Okay, now time to rant:

Why in the living daylights should it cost me THAT much to get in my room. At my old school it was ten bucks (which I still didn’t want to give up). I guess that’s the price you I pay for going to school with super rich kids. Walking in the parking garage, I see hummers, BMW’s, Mustangs, and one kid even has a Porsche. It’s great that they have all that but sometime’s it irritates me to hear them complain about their possessions when there is no way I could ever have any of that (before I start my career of course). I just wish they would be more grateful. I don’t have much but I’m grateful for what I do have. I love the laptop that my mom scraped up for and the TV she bought that I know she couldn’t really afford. Maybe its the sacrifice that makes things worth something. Maybe if it was all easy I wouldn’t care about any of it. Maybe being broke has a perk after all. 🙂

Busy busy busy…

So lately I have been super busy but this week is one of the busiest.

I have an exam and presentation this week and am studying for two exams next week. Needless to say, I won’t be able to post daily as I usually do but may have to settle for every other day.

But as an update, I would like to report that the sleep deprivation has disappeared and the stress has dissolved. I just had to realize that the time management form my previous party school isn’t going to fly at my new school. Cramming doesn’t work her either (go figure!).

But alas, I must return to my studying.

PS. I have a B in Chemistry. GO ME!!!

I Must Have It!!!

Sadly my blog is missingsomething that most blogs have and I’m sure many of you veteran bloggers have noticed it.

My blogs rarely ever have PICTURES. This is because unfortunately I do not have a camera. Only my webcam and the camera on my phone (which is super slow).  My blog feels SUPER empty without pictures! Especially since I have so many ideas that would be so great if I had pictures. So I have decided that on my next check I will be getting a camera.. that is if my school doesn’t want more money or if I don’t need to buy more winter clothes than I budgeted for.

Did I mention being a broke college student sucks!

That leads me to a second thing I need: A JOB! I will definitely be contacting the nice Federal Work Study lady tomorrow 🙂

College Makes Me Sleepy

College is great! Parties all the time. Free food on campus constantly. Plenty of cool people. Of course, there are also academics… sady. All these things together seem to wear me out. When on campus, I have a constant flow of energy but the minute I get home it’s like someone pressed my sleep button.

Even as I sit here now I must fight the urge to just lay my head on the keyboard and take a trip to Dreamland. I must stay away from all things soft to stay awake (ie. couches, beds, super soft pillows my grandma made). *sigh*

Does this happen to anyone else? Please tell me I’m not alone. 🙂
