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

“Visiting” Home

So this weekend I have decided to come visit my mom for two reasons. The first is that I miss her and the  second is I need to go grocery shopping and she can be my chauffer. 🙂

When I got home, I realized something weird. Technically, I’m a visitor here. I don’t live here anymore. I live year round at college. I don’t even have my own room here. Sadly my mother has not realized this fact.

You see, normally when people visit this house they get what I like to call the “Visitor Treatment”. Not me. When visitors come, the first thing that is done is that someone changes the sheets in the guest bedroom before they get here. Was this done for me? NOPE! Instead, I’ll be sleeping in my mom’s bed this weekend.

The second thing is when they wake up, there is breakfast prepared. You know, like eggs, grits, bacon, and toast. When I woke up with that hungry look on my face, I was told I was “old enough to make my own breakfast”.

And the last thing that made me realize that no one sees my visitorness (I know, not a real word) is when I sat down to watch TV, my mom came in , grabbed the remote and AFTER changing the channel said, “You weren’t watching this were you?”   -__-

So now as I write this and prepare myself to walk in the kitchen and cook my own breakfast, I curse at the movies on TV that lied to me and told me that when I came home from college I’d be pampered like a visitor. LIARS!

Refund Checks: The Reason We Really Go to College

Today is a college student’s holiday. Its the day we’ve been waiting for since we registered for classes. Today we get our refund checks!!!

I checked my Higher One account, which is where they send our refund money, and some of the money is there but not all of it. So now I’m panicking!  I have so much I wanted to do with my little check. Most of it went to paying my rent for the 1st four months. The rest was supposed to allow me to go grocery shopping and get some winter clothes.

Now I only have enough to either get some food or get some clothes so that when it gets to be 40 degrees I won’t get pnuemonia. Both of these are very important and I’m hoping the rest of my money comes in before tomorrow.

This is no surprise to me because the financial aid department at my school basically sucks! Before the semester started they neglected tell me some very important information in regards to my HOPE scholarship. Because of that little fluke I almost wasn’t going to  be able to go to college this semester!!!

So if I don’t have ALL my money by Monday morning I am marching my college patootey up there and straightening this out. So, I leave you with this quote from the JG Wentworth commercial:

“It’s my money and I need it NOW!!!”
