SPAIN here i comeeeee!

today i am off for SPAIN for a little vacay!! clearly if you read this blog or if you know me, you know that i am completely obsessed with spain and lived there two years ago (omg sad) for a year teaching english! so needless to say.....IM SO EXCITED!! HOWEVER, there is a little bit of betting going on regarding my trip that i want to share with you all. the big issue: JAMON! jamon is spanish ham and it comes on a big pigs leg that is either hanging in bars, on ppls kitchen counters, or in my suitcase..wait..anyway i was a littttttttle obsessed with it when i lived there and may or may not have craved it A LOT when i get back. if you dont know what jamon is or have forgotten how delicious and appetizing it HERE for a little refresher. :) yum...right?? haha i know, it looks sick...but trust me, so good. ANYWAY...i have been a vegetarian (still eat fish for those of you who are picky about titles) for about a year now so clearly there has been no jamon or any other meat for me for a while now. but i also havent been back to spain since the end of my meat eating days.......sooooooo some of my friends and my whole entire family think i will crack as soon as i smell the sweet aroma of the delectable ham or see the large inviting pigs leg or just due to the fact that its in almost everything there and i wont be able to resist and i will give up on my vegetarian ways and take a leg to the face. eulp. BUT they are obvi wrong...that is def not gonna so over it....arent i....AHH! this will be a true test of wills ppl. WISH ME LUCK! i will let you know how i fare :)

see ya after spain!!

how low can you go?

have you all heard the new ludacris song how low can you go? ive gotta say, ive never been a big ludacris fan...but i do like this song. i just have one question--why must we go so low? why must we go lower than we know and lower than our mom has ever seen befo? hahah i just dont get it! i even called my mom to ask her opinion....i dont think she was amused. then i called my friend and asked her all about going low and why she thinks we have to go so low. i finally asked her to ask her boyfriend for me and let me know what he says. she was actually less amused than my mom. so, i decided to take it to the blog. what is the appeal of going so low?? i mean..its uncomfortable for all parties...girls trying to get so low and keep their jeans up or their skirts down and i mean, once youre down do you get back up?? its not hot to like fall over or to grunt as you try to get up from going so low...right?! even ludacris says "baby pull your pants up", so see..he even knows! and really its not great for the guy either because they normally cant go as low as the they are awkwardly dancing with the air as the girl is on the floor going lower than she knows. its too low. thats all there is to it.

any thoughts??


ps love this song though...if you dont know it, def check it out! and the video..totally ridic! haha crazy ludacris.

love hate relationship

nature is a funny thing. i am def NOT a nature girl--anyone who knows me, knows that. but i must say, sometimes i do get a kick out it! i was just sitting on my bed getting ready to leave the house and i noticed two squirrels chasing each other in the yard. haha i know this happens all the time, but i dont really nature watch too often. anyway, for some reason, i watched them for a little and it really made me smile. it was so cute! i have also been known to like ants. yes, its weird, but ever since this psychology of natural science class i took in college, i have weirdly liked ants and bees. they are both really smart and really funny to a freak.....haha! seriously though--ants are REALLY hard workers and super smart! they are team players cute! haha im not kidding, stop and watch a group of them sometime!! and bees, well, i know a lot of ppl are scared of them...but they are also really hard working and super smart too! really interesting to watch them work!

such a freak. what can i say..i dont really want to go camping or go walking in the woods...or long-ish grass for that matter...but show me some ants hard at work and im a happy camper! hha!

have a good day and enjoy some nature for me!

NYC--part 1

i went to nyc this past weekend for my birthday and to visit my sister and one of my best friends! we had SUUCH a fun time! the more i go to new york, the more i like it......maybe ill end up there one day?? who knows!? nyc is a pretty funny place though but i guess, like most places, you take the good with the bad. for example--the good: all the food! anything you want, you can get and at any time of day or night. i love that. its also very walkable and there is a ton of stuff to do and see-never boring! overall, really fun city. buuuut it does have its downsides as well. for example--taking the bus into chinatown--rookie mistake. now, i have gone to nyc by bus many times over the past few years, but normally my sister books my ticket for me--what?? im helpless! well this particular trip she was really busy and couldnt do it, so i decided to tackle the seemingly easy task on my own. i decided after looking at all the normal, sensible bus options to book the sketchball chinatown bus. not only does it drop you in the middle of nyc chinatown, where i am eternally lost and scared but the bus was dirtier than any other bus i have taken, there were more people fighting, more people drinking, and it stopped in philly for a little 30-45 min rest....what the?? oh, also...the seat next to mine didnt have a head rest, which i guess i can actually consider a good thing bc then no one wanted to sit by me...wait, that was the reason, right?? anywayyy...sorry about that little tangent. thats not really the city's fault, thats just the bus. the rats, on the other hand--thats all city. and the man i saw pooping onto the sidewalk near penn station--that too, i will give to the city. i wish i were kidding, but sadly i am not. but to be fair.....ive also seen a man pooping into a plant in dc, so ya know, it could just be a thing ppl do that i was just unaware of! ew. anyway, besides the rats and the weird smells, oh and dont forget about the pooping on the sidewalk, i really like the city and had a really fun trip!! more on that later....

the accidental "i love you" life is still awkward and sitcom-esque! i had a little situation tonight with the guy that ive been dating for the past couple months. never, ever triple-task while signing off on the phone with the guy you are newly dating! lesson learned. heres the tale: i was talking online to my BFF and writing an email to another friend while reading her email to me in spanish aaaaand saying goodbye on the phone to the guy. soooooo as i was doing all of these things..i dipped into my arsenal of send-offs and pulled out the first one that came to mind without really thinking....i go, "bye, love u".......................AHHHHHHHHHHH! WHA??? the situation got a litttttle awkward in that moment! the most awkward part is perhaps how much i took it back/made sure he knew that i was not saying what it seemed i was saying....whooooops! anyway...i quickly tried to explain that i was triple-tasking and that its just something i say when signing off with friends--all the while saying whoaaaaa whoa whoa...way too much! i am sure i sounded like a total bumbling freak, back-pedaling and stuttering like a weirdo...yowza! tough moment. he, on the other hand, was LOVING my panic and actually laughing at me!

lesson calls with the boy will now get my full attention!

xoxo wish me luck on our next meeting....
