So all day this princess has had a migraine and watched movies. I did not want to get out of bed and I certainly couldn't do my school work.

So I colored you a picture of how I feel. (The pink thing is my brain)

All My Love,

A Scary Little Secret

Today I waited at home all day for the doorbell to ring. A ring that would bring me new running shoes. Finally around ten o'clock tonight, the door rings. Magic new shoes enter into my life. The first time pair of running shoes I have ever had. They are magical. So very different then Chucks.

These magical shoes needed to be tried out, so I climbed onto the treadmill for the first time in years, leaving the safety of the elliptical machine. I start the machine and increase the speed. As soon as the speed increases above a stroll my hips go, "bomp bomp". sliding and popping with every single step. Its annoying to hear and feels uncomfortable.

I have mentioned it to my doctor, but she always says to keep an eye on it and keep her posted. I am afraid to push the issue... I am afraid I am going to need a hip replacement and I am not quite 22. I am also afraid it might be hip arthritis. I know I am dramatic and paranoid, but I'm scared.

Things That Make Me Happy...

Staying inside and watching all the storms.

Summer School. I have to drive all over the country, but I am learning so much. 

Seeing Friends. Talking about Literature. "My Lute, Awake".  White Nail Polish. Greek Food. Testing Out A Bunch Of New Recipes. Trade Joes. 

Watching Daddy Long Legs

ME Plants a Tree

Monday, June 20, 2011

 I love the earth. It gives me food and entertainment. I decided to give back to the green ball we call Earth by planting a tree. I then decided no... let's plant two trees. So I went to the store and bought two trees. I brought the trees home and put them in the garage.

I also bought a tomato plant but that is not a part of this story.

I then thought, "Trees belong in the ground, not in a garage." So I had to carry the trees over to the grass. Although the tree doesn't look that big, It is almost as tall as I am. This caused me to look ridiculous when carrying the tree.

This tree is a lemon tree and when it grows into a big tree, it shall feed my lemon addiction 

Then it was time to carry the smaller tree. My logical mind told me this tree would be easier to carry. In reality the small tree fought me.

The innocent looking lime tree.

The small tree grew thorns and cut me with every moved I made. This tree did not want to be carried. despite the small tree's resistance, I managed to get both the trees over to the where they where going to be planted.

Then I took a break to feed the ducks. 

But then it was back to work digging holes. Soon I had both trees in the ground.

Now I can proudly say I planted a tree.

How Disney Prepared and Scared Me For Life

Sunday, June 19, 2011

When I was little I was taken to the magical world of Disney World. There I got autographs of all the disney characters, rode splash mountain a hundred time, and hunted the entire park for a chocolate covered mickey mouse ice cream bar. It was pure magic to little me.

I was taken to the see the 3D movie Honey, I Shrunk The Audience in one of the parks. During this movie, mice are "released" and run up the audience members legs. That tiny part of the movie is something that affects me to this day. When ever I sit in a chair, I have to have my feet off the floor.

On Wednesday, I was sitting in class and had my feet on the floor for maybe five minutes for the blood to circulate after I was sitting on them for awhile. Suddenly I started to feel something climbing up my leg and I screamed. The class goes silent as a gaze as a red spider flies off my leg.

All my life I thought Disney gave me an irrational fear, turns out that fear is not so irrational.

The Apple Dream

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I wake up and decided I need to eat an apple. However, in order to eat it I need to find the perfect plate. Not too big, not too small, and not too fragile. Most importantly this plate had to be microwave safe. I turned some plates away for being to fragile. Most plates were turned away for not being microwave safe.
Then I woke up and wondered who microwaves apples.

When In Rome

Monday, June 13, 2011

When I was in Rome, I ended up seeing the movie When In Rome. In the movie, there is a fountain of love which people throw coins into. I was determined to do the same. I asked for directions in my best Italian and was directed to every part of the city. Finally I turned to google and found the fountain of love doesn't exist. 

I was crushed. How could they not have a fountain of love? How was I going to ensure my romantic future for only twenty five cents now?

Because the movie decided to lie to its viewers and Rome didn't feel the need to correct the situation, I am stuck in the real world and have to make my own romantic destiny. This stinks because I am not a god and cannot see the outcome of my choices and because I make really poor choices.

If anyone knows of an fountain, portal, or magic spell that will give someone more capable the responsibility of controlling my romantic destiny, please let me know. 

Home vs. Reality

Sunday, June 12, 2011

There is no place like home. It saddens me to know this is my last day here and I wont be returning for a month. After that I shall not be back until Thanksgiving. I know tomorrow will bring reuniting with my car and class. I shall also have to write papers and read four books a week. Not that reading is a chore I complain about. But it is a part of the reality I must face tomorrow. I don't know what you hate most about reality but I hate that someone else dictates my time.

Well I am going to go enjoy the pool are the crazy mocking bird. Hopefully you get to escape reality for a brief time this week.

White Skin

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Life has been insanely busy for this princess. I have been driving at least six hundred for school, doing homework, and sleeping. But the real adventure happens when I try to feed myself.

First let me say I have no cooking experience. Next I should say that I miss Greek food. So I decided to fry some zucchini. I filled a pan with greek olive oil and dipped zucchini slices in whole grain flour. Then you fry the zucchini in the olive oil, apply sea salt, and eat. However, this princess accidently put her pointer finger in the frying oil, which leads to a white puffy finger tip. So I am sitting at the table with ice on my finger and feeding myself yummy fried zucchini with the other hand.

The Case Of The Jealous MINI

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

You might not know this about me, but I am a proud MINI momma. My baby and I have motored across many a state. However with my recent trip to Rome and checking out the many MINIs there, my baby got a little jealous. As soon as I came back, MINI was not happy. She tried getting back at me my acting out. Tugging and pulling as I try to motor. I  had no option but to take her to the get checked out. After three hours she got a clean bill of health and with a wash, she looked better than ever. Little MINI has finally forgiven me.

ME News, Issue 1

Sunday, June 5, 2011

There is a dangerous creature rampaging our world. They are adapting to global warning and displaying the latest fashion. I am of course talking about polar bears in bikinis.

Polar bears in bikinis think they are harmless and fun. However at 1500 pounds, 9.8 feet in height, and a ten in fashion sense, they are not. These animals have claws and teeth and won’t think twice about pulling them out when things get catty.

Kit Calling of North Lavocik tells ME News of frightful encounter she had with one of these creature. She was spending time at the beach playing volleyball last Tuesday when a polar bear in a bikini comes strutting towards the players. This polar bear suddenly attacked one half of the court leaving three dead and one critically wounded. The team Kit Calling was on was forced to finish the game with the polar bear in a bikini after witnessing the attack on their friends.

Be careful or you might have to play volleyball with a polar bear in a bikini as well. 

Accidentally Vegan

Saturday, June 4, 2011

Dear Friends,

Never in my life did I think I would become a vegetarian much less vegan. I would get hungry when I looked at a cow. Then the doctor confirmed that I was lactose intolerant. I did not think it would impact my life. I had never has a glass of milk in my life and only recently started eating much cheese. However, the more dairy I cut out of my diet the more it started to affect me. I was having the worse stomach cramps with chicken fingers, which to my surprise had dairy in them. With the limited options on campus, I began to unknowingly eat a vegan diet. Then school ended and I came home. I had no desire to start eating meat again. In fact I am a bit repulsed by meat. So I am accidently vegan, and not really sure that to do now.

Love Always,
