This and That.

This is a kinda random post, oh well!

1.) I've been on a HUGE Electric Guest kick lately. Love them! Also, I just bought 10,000 Weight in Gold, you are right - great song! Also, one of the new Head and the Heart songs was the Starbucks pick of the week! So I have that one, too! (the video below is the Starbucks pick)

2.) This clever Halloween costume! Makes me think of the new(ish) Vampire Weekend CD, do you think you could burn me a copy? Or can you not do that with Rapsody?

3.) I bought new hand soaps at Bath & Body Works today and I just love that place! So simple and nice smelling and bright and I think I'm going to apply to work there first!

4.) Do you ever think your friends look like celebrities? My friend Jamie from flag line (who will be one of my house-mates next year) looks just like Charlotte from Sex and the City. Crazy! Here they are...


5.) Lastly, I have discovered from watching too much E! that all of the famous stars live in a part of L.A. called Calabasas. So if you ever want to look at some mansions of famous people, just google Calabasas! 

This is one of my favorites

Dress Dreamin'

Well, since I don't have Disney or Winter Guard this coming semester, I am probably not going to have a conflict for the KKPsi formal! So, I've been on the lookout for evening gowns that I like! This is more or less for later reference so I can remember some of these online shops! I love ShopBop, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales!

This one that I had a crush on last spring from ShopBop.

a few catches from Neiman Marcus! 

and a few from Bloomingdales! 

Other than these dresses I've been wasting time looking for, today has been a total Monday. Oh well. Also, my Anthropologie banquet dress should be in any day now! So that's exciting!

Happy Halloween? Merry Christmas?

Either way, I'm publishing my 2013 Christmas list soon!

Warning, it will be largely clothes because I just need to vamp up my wardrobe! Please post yours soon, too!

p.s. Just 2 weeks until I come home and see you/ we have our movie date!

p.p.s. Auburn is number 8 in the polls! YaYaYaYaYaY!

Missed opportunity.

Do you ever have the opportunity to do something, refuse it, and then think you maybe made the wrong choice?

I'm having these thoughts about refusing the job at Disney right now.

I hear so many wonderful things about working there and I REALLY need a job. I would be getting class credit, trying something new, and I'd have free access to the parks whenever I'm not working. Imagine being able to just waltz into the Rockin' Roller Coaster whenever you just needed to clear your head? Or see the fireworks show in Epcot for a fun night? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me and I didn't even consider it long enough to realize how much I wanted it.

Also, the day I was to decide for or against Disney, I got out of Lars and there was a small flyer for the Disney College Program. I picked it up, but didn't think of it again. And now, I took the state personality test on A Cup of Jo and my state matching personality is Florida.

Oh well. Another semester of feeling lost, confused, and stuck in Auburn here I come.

tiny drumline.

Have you seen these pictures of these adorable kids from Taiwan? They are in Kindergarten and are the youngest DrumLine in the world!

They are so cute. I just can't handle it.

You're Invited!

Philip and I have been wanted to use the outdoor fire pit that is in his apartment complex. I feel like at the beginning of seasons we say we're going to do things and they never happen, so, we decided that we would have a bonfire when you come for the Georgia game! We can do s'mores and also we are planning to set a pair of Sketchers on fire. Hope you'll join us!

Working Girl.

Well, tomorrow is my final tryout with Aureus. If I make Aureus, I will accept the offer as a cast member and work a job here in Auburn during the week. If I don't make Aureus, I will either get a job here in Auburn and have another chill semester (like last spring) or accept my job offer from Disney World!

So now the question is, if I work here in Auburn - where should I work?

I'm mostly considering apparel sales, not so much the food industry. So, I'm mostly considering Gap, Old Navy, Pier 1, LOFT, Victoria's Secret, Bath and Body Works, and the library here on campus! The library because I have heard wonderful things about their flexible hours and working with student schedules! However, if I'm going to work, I might as well go somewhere that I am going to enjoy benefits of working - like a percentage off. What do you think?

p.s. Picture is from the 1988 film "Working Girl" - I think you'd enjoy it, even though it is quite obviously a movie made in the 80s :)

The little things.

There is nothing more frustrating to me than flipping channels when I only have a little while to sit and relax. Being at college is making me appreciate the "guide" feature on our TV at home and also DVR. I guess flipping channels and hulu will have to do for now.

I got the job!

I got an email today informing me that I got the job at Disney World to work with Merchandise! So exciting! I have to officially accept the job or turn it down by the 17th to secure my job for the Spring 2014 semester! Now THIS would be a fun place to come visit me in college!

Local Natives

Here are a few of my humble clips of the Local Natives concert in Birmingham on October 1! Hopefully the quality isn't too horrible, it was a great show! If you ever get the chance to go see them, you should definitely go!

My future dress.

I am going to order this dress from Anthrologie in the next few weeks to wear to our Senior Band banquet! I think it's really pretty and very Mary Mason. (not be be confused with very Mary Kate)

Watching v. Doing

There are some things that I think are really awesome that I will not ever actually want to be a part of.

Some examples are snow, figure skating, and having a farm. All of these things seem really pleasant to me, but I hate experiencing snow, I can't skate, and I don't want to live on a farm. I just like to observe these things.

However, there are other things that I see and instantly want to be a part of - namely, DCI and WGI. Recently, due to a shift in interest here at Auburn, I am unsure on DCI. I am really excited about potentially having a WGI career, but do I really want to devote my entire summer to marching and dealing with more screaming instructors, wind that makes spinning hard, and another group dynamic to learn and live in?

I'm going to the Spirit info clinic in November which will hopefully give me a better idea. But, these are just some random thoughts.
