Music Wednesday: Hang Loose

Oh hey! Haven't done one of these in awhile...

I haven't had a ton of time to find new music lately, but I did see some buzz recently about a group called Alabama Shakes and I am so glad I checked them out.

Lead singer, Brittany Howard, has an amazing, somewhat old-school sounding voice, that one review I read recently called a "force of nature". I couldn't agree with that description more. The album "Boys and Girls" is full of heartfelt ups and downs, emotional highs and lows if you will. I love the entire album but "Hang Loose" and "Hold On" are two of my absolute favorites.

If you haven't yet had a chance to check this group out... do it. Now.

Fisher Grad Life Blog

I am expanding my blogging beyond this little blog of mine. I am now a part of the blogging team for Fisher College of Business' Grad Life Blog.

The Fisher Grad Life Blog is a student written blog about all things grad school, Ohio State, and Columbus, OH. It's primary audience is prospective Fisher students, but if you are interested in checking out my contributions you can go HERE.

I plan to post weekly over there (and I'm sure I'll continue to let you all know when those posts go up). But for a more substantive post today, go check me out over there!

This poor little blog of mine has been neglected for quite some time.
I am starting to (FINALLY!) get settled in to a bit of a routine, but getting back to the blog is still going to take some time. This week, I am going to attempt to get back in the swing of things.
I've got lots to tell you about... like my wonderful new friends =)

Talk to you tomorrow blogland.

I Get Internet Tomorrow!

I've managed to master the art of stealing the free wifi from my apartment complex's lounge; however I am beyond excited to get back to real life, with strong internet connection in my own apartment.

These last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind. I am in serious need of a normal schedule, which lucky for me should be starting up on/around Wednesday. Classes start then, and I believe my work will be starting then too.

I can not wait. 

Lets just say I've recently realized how much I like structure and control. And these last few weeks of uncertainty have started to take a toll on me.

Normal Schedule? Not Yet...

I feel so out of the loop on blog world! 
I can't even remember the last time I've gotten to read anyones posts =(

I am still living in the dark ages with no internet in my apartment (although at the moment I have found a way to get the VERY WEAK signal from my complex's lounge if I sit on the floor next to my living room window) which means my blogging can not yet return to full force.

But, I can see a normal schedule just over the horizon- my parents went back home to Fresno this morning (I miss them already!) after being here in Columbus for the last five days helping me set up my apartment, and orientation started yesterday (and actual classes and work start next week).

Right now Time Warner and JC Penny Home Store (who can not seem to manage to deliver my bed and couch) are on my list because both of these companies are failing to get me important things that I've ordered in a timely fashion. Once my apartment has internet, a bed, and a couch I feel like I will be able to feel like my life can start being somewhat normal.

In the mean time- I went to the Pro Football Hall of Fame yesterday with the parents and got to see some pretty awesome stuff!
 This Lombardi trophy will go to this seasons Super Bowl winner! 
Let's hope it goes to my Packers =)
 We couldn't resist... Tebowing with the Tebow jersey.
My love Aaron Rodgers uniform =)

Hope you all are doing well! 
I miss reading about everyones lives and I really hope I have time to catch up soon!

I Made It To Ohio!


My road trip was a ton of fun and I can't wait to share a bunch of photos; unfortunately it may be a bit longer before I am able to start posting regularly again =(

I got to move in to my apartment yesterday, but I am currently living with almost no furniture and absolutely no cable or internet (I am posting this from the lounge area of my apartment complex which luckily offers us free internet)...

Plus I've got lots of stuff to do to get ready for orientation next week!

So it looks like I will be gone a lil bit longer... but when I am able to get back there will be lots of fun update posts!
