six signs you're addicted to technology

Hi, my name is Brianna and I'm addicted to technology. I constantly have my phone and I can't go a day without checking my social media accounts. I'd like to blame that on blogging, but really I've always been that way. At this point, I think its safe to say I'm addicted.
+you always have your phone on you, and you freak out when you can't find it
Sometimes I do this while it's in my hand because I'm an idiot. I don't go anywhere without my phone. Unless I'm with Dj. But other than that, I take it with me. I always think that if I don't bring it, I'll miss a super important phone call or something (you know, because I get so many of those).

+the battery dying on your phone is literally the end of the world
…and you'll do anything to get to a charger. I'm so guilty of this. Especially if I'm out somewhere and I'm texting Dj. I start to get anxious and nervous as soon as my battery gets down to like 20%. I even offer to drive whenever I go somewhere with my roommates just because I have a charger in my car.

+your friends show you funny things on the internet, but you've already seen them all
Like these:
I tried to find the least offensive rape sloth meme, but they're all too good…sorry

+you never go to the library for homework
...or at least you never use books. We had a paper due in Spanish the other day that we needed a little bit of research before. When we got to class, the girl next to me pulled out six books that she found in the library for the paper, and all I could think to say was, "Have you never heard of Google?" Oops.

+you go to check Twitter/Facebook/etc but there's nothing new on your newsfeed
Especially on Twitter, if you're checking it so often that there are no new tweets, you might have a problem. Whenever I go on the wedding section of Pinterest, 90% of the pins are things I've already seen…oops.

+you have every piece of technology imaginable
I have a DSLR camera, a computer, iPhone, iPad, and an iPod so basically I'm keeping Apple in business. They're also all pink so maybe I just have an obsessive personality.

Are you addicted?

quinoa stuffed peppers

Super quick- I made it to the final three for "Most Inspirational" and "Best Link Party" so I would love if you could go vote for me here!

Okay, most of you know that I'm gluten and dairy free (most of the time). I've been trying really hard to stick to this diet, and I've really only cheated a few times. My biggest challenge is finding new recipes. My options are pretty limited, and a lot of the things I would normally eat have been cut out of my diet. Like if I can't have ice cream and quesadillas and grilled cheese what am I supposed to do? My roommates and I have been experimenting with quinoa though, and so today I wanted to share my "recipe" (I use that term very loosely) for some super yummy quinoa stuffed peppers.

quinoa stuffed peppers

YUM, right?

Here's what you need:
We used green peppers, but you can really use any kind you like. But obviously you need peppers to make quinoa stuffed peppers. And quinoa. You'll need that too. Okay, moving on.
You can really mix anything in there, but we used chicken, zucchini, and squash. But feel free to get a little crazy with some extra mix-ins.

First things first- cook the quinoa and the chicken. We use about a cup of quinoa and prepare it according to the instructions on the box. We sauté some garlic and onion in a little olive oil, and then add the chicken to the pan with some salt n peppa until its almost fully cooked.

Once the chicken is almost done, we add the veggies. It looks something like this and smells like heaven…but not as good as In-N-Out smells.

Yum Yum Yum. Once that's all cooked and ready, I mix it in with the quinoa and fill the peppers with the mix. Then you just pop them in the oven at 350 for like ten (fifteen?) minutes and voilĂ !

Its a super easy and super healthy dinner, and it's also really yummy if you add some cheese (that's what my roommates tell me) So let me know if you give it a try or if you have any other yummy GF/DF recipes!

I also want to introduce to you Jessica from Jessica Lynn Writes. What better way to make friends than a blogger dating- blating- profile, right?

 Long distance relationships are clearly much different than relationships where you get to see your loved one every day. They take a little extra work because you have to find clever ways to show someone how much you care about them. Handsome and I have had over a years experience being a long distance relationship now, so I wanted to share a few more things we do that help us embrace the distance. I shared a few tips a while back, and you can read that one here.

One thing that Handsome and I do that's pretty special is keep a journal. We

okay but what is this post even about

Today, my econ class was supposed to meet in a different classroom. I was walking around campus aimlessly because I had to clue where this building was, and I ended up missing class which I was obviously so sad about. This is really irrelevant to the story, but anyways while I was walking around I called Dj. (Have you noticed I use his name more than 'Handsome' now? Its so much quicker to type) He answered and sounded so happy. We talked about random shiz and I had the biggest smile on my face the whole time. Then I just had this huge realization. I was looking around at this beautiful campus, drinking the best iced soy chai latte ever, talking to my best friend on the phone. I realized how lucky I am and that I've been taking it for granted.

I've been a little down lately and I didn't even realize it until today, if that makes sense. I just had this overwhelming realization that I have it so good right now. Sure, I'm away from the one person who I really want to be with, but other than that, life is really perfect. I have someone who makes me the happiest girl in the world even though he's so far away, I have the best roommates, I have a Starbucks gold card (oops I'm addicted I had to throw that in there) and I go to a beautiful school…for free.

I don't know what my future holds, but I know it can only get better from here. I'm so young and I have so much of my life ahead of me. I can literally do anything, right? That's such a scary though. But its so exciting and comforting because I literally have no clue what I want to do. Right now I'm thinking I'll get my MBA, but last week I was going to get my PhD in Neuropsychology so we'll see how I feel next week. Maybe I'll want to be an astronaut or something. This year I'll graduate in December (fingers crossed), move in with my handsome boyfriend, GET A PUPPY, and drink a ton of Starbucks. How exciting is that?! I just have so much to look forward to and I'm so excited about it.

Where is this post even going? I literally have no clue. I've just been so out of it lately when it comes to blogging, and I felt like I needed to give you an update on where I'm at in my little scatterbrained head. I feel like I haven't even posted a decent post in like two weeks. I've been so busy and I haven't been motivated at all. But today I just felt better about everything. Including the blog. I've worked really hard to get it where it's at today. I've become so dedicated, and I can't stop that now. I'm so glad I have some time this week to settle down and get excited about blogging again. But just a warning, that might mean  a new design. Yolo. I think it'll help me get motivated to blog.

I only have about two weeks until I get to see Dj and I seriously can't wait. I've been in a funk the past couple of days. It always happens about a month and a half into us not seeing each other. I get so sad and I just want to jump on a plane and see him ASAP. But seriously, two weeks is nothing. I'm done feeling sorry for myself. My roommate has this new boyfriend (who's also in the Air Force) and they're so cute and perfect so I'm just living vicariously through them for the next two weeks. We want to go on a double date so I'm trying to get a life-size cardboard cutout of Dj or something so he can be there. Creepy? Probably.

So basically, you're welcome for a post about nothing except a big dump of my feelings. I'll get better at finding things to blog about, I promise. And if anyone knows where I can get that cutout let me know ;) Happy hump day!

meet my rival, Carissa

Well hello there lovelies! Today I am introducing you to one of my lovely sponsors, Carissa, from T is for Townsend. Homegirl is also from AZ and she's the literal shit (thats a good thing). She's funny and cute and awesome and I love insta-stalking her. So here we are for another round of sponsor madlibs and a quick intro from Carissa!

Hello Endlessly Beloved readers! My name is Carissa and I blog over at T is for Townsend. I write all my posts using only words that start with the letter T. ...Just kidding. That'd be crazy. Impossible actually. Kim Possible. Call me, beep me if you wanna reach me. Hopefully all you Disney kids got that or else no one will think it's funny except for me. So now that I've just wasted an entire paragraph's worth of a guest post let me be for real now. Brianna and I 
both hail from the sunny state of Arizona where she attends the University of Arizona (boooooo) and I'm an Arizona State alum (ASU!!). We make it work though. We're like, frenemies. I forgive her for being a wildcat and she puts up with my sundevil-ness, all in the name of the blogging community. All together now: "awwwwww." In fact, just for Brianna I found this lovely gem in my photo archives of when I went to a UofA football game with a friend.

Just for the record, this was before I ever stepped foot on an Arizona State campus so it can't be held against me ;) .  Anyway, you won't find anything in particular on my blog - no recipes (I hate cooking, and cleaning up...but I like the eating part), no workout tips, no fabulous outfits with perfectly coordinated accessories. But you will find pictures of my labs (the dog lab, not the science lab. I don't have any science labs), my husband might make an appearance every now and then, and other general commentary of the like. Come visit me would you?! It's not as boring as it sounds I promise.

Thanks Brianna for having me! ...Good night and Go Devils ;) oops:)

PS I had a completely different MadLibs story planned until I read that she was talking crap about my school, so now I present: Sponsor MadLibs, Bear Down Edition! I even used our colors ;) Blue is what Carissa filled in!

Oops, sorry Carissa, but you asked for it;) 

Anyway, she's the best so make sure you check out her blog and stalk her on every possible social media site!

Hello loves! My name is Brianna and I blog over at Endlessly Beloved. Over in my little corner of Blogland, you'll find a little bit of everything. I blog about my long distance relationship with a man in the Air Force, my life as a college student, and all of the other randomness that is my life.

I began my blog in August of 2013, and it has grown more than I've ever imagined, so when Faith asked me to be a  part of this series, I couldn't be any more excited! Today, I wanted to share with you some tips on growing and maintaining readership.
We blog so we can share our stories with others, right? So clearly readership is important. I get a lot of emails asking for advice on this topic because it's so important for blogging but its also one of the most challenging aspects.

When it comes to growing your readership, the most important thing is to have good content. You can sponsor all of the blogs you want, be a part of giveaways, or promote yourself as much as possible, but if the content isn't there, people aren't going to stick around. It's important to stay true to yourself and post things you care about, but present them in a way that is intriguing and interesting for your readers. Along with this, I believe that your blog's design is also very important. First impressions are important, and if someone stumbles across your blog, and it looks messy and disorganized, it can be a real turnoff. 

Networking is also a huge way to gain readership. Reading and commenting on other blogs, communicating through social media, and any other way of forming relationships can really go a long way. If you regularly comment on someone's blog, they're likely to stop by and read yours, too! Making friends in the blogging community is really one of the most helpful ways to become a better blogger.

In my opinion, the most efficient way to grow your readership is through sponsorships. If you're ready to invest money into your blog (which I believe that it's never too early to do), sponsoring other blogs can really help. There's nothing wrong with having someone help promote you. I love sponsorships that include social media shout outs and "blog takeover" type posts, because you really get a lot of exposure, and people can see what you're all about!

But once you have the readers, how do you keep them coming back? This can be tricky. But I think that the only real tip here is quality and consistency. Post regularly so people can come read something (almost) every day. I try not to post too many giveaways, linked posts, or sponsored posts. It's best to space those things out. You want a majority of your content to be actual content, not just fluff in between your "real" posts. People generally won't come back every day if they know that a majority of your posts are giveaways and sponsorships! Write helpful, honest, inspiring posts that you know your readers will love. If you stay true to your voice and write honestly, the readers will come, and they will stay! 

I hope this was helpful to you all! I would love if you stopped by my blog and if you have any questions on this topic or anything at all, feel free to email me- I love meeting new people!

Happy Monday loves! I'm taking today to catch up on homework and get some blog stuff figured out. I've been a little disconnected the past week because I've been so busy, but this week I can finally relax and focus a little more on the blog! I hope you had a good weekend! Let's start off the week with some confessions...

I put soda in water cups at restaurants. It started when I worked at In-N-Out, and I realized that you're really paying for the cup, not the actual drink, and getting soda for free is much better than paying $3 for it.

I don't really enjoy reading blogs every day. There, I said it. This is something I think about a lot because I know it makes me the worst blogger in the world. Once and a while when I'm bored, I'll read through my Bloglovin' feed, but I honestly don't have the patience/attention span to sit and read everyone's blog post every day. I've been afraid to say it because I don't want to get a bad reaction, and I'm sorry, but there you go.

I get my feelings hurt so easily. The dumbest things hurt my feelings and I hate it.

I get jealous...a lot. In Blogland, I'm jealous of blogs with cuter designs, better content, more readers. In real life, I get jealous of my friends that get to see their boyfriends every day, girls that are prettier, skinner, or have things I want. I get jealous when handsome does fun things and I can't be there to di them with him. I know everyone gets jealous, but I just get really jealous all the time.

I'm extremely self conscious. I definitely care what others think. I'm self conscious about my body. I'm afraid of others judging me. Most of the time I'm not happy with my appearance, but I'm also too lazy to do anything about it.

What about you? What're your confessions?

these boots are made for dancing!

My roommates mom has a picture of herself on Facebook wearing some sassy boots and that's the caption. I can't get enough of it. I love a good pair of boots. I have like six pairs because that's all I wear in the winter. I mean everyone loves boots, right? So today I wanted to share with you some of the most unique boots I've ever seen. Let me introduce you to a pretty little shop called Gipsy Dharma.
Gipsy Dharma has a huge colletion of really unique, handmade boots and clothing. The boots are awesome because they're made to feel like you're walking barefoot! How cool is that?

There are tons of giveaways on the site, and the boots themselves are a good investment!
The boots come in so many pretty colors and styles, so I definitely encourage you to check them out here!

What do you think? What're you favorites?

i really love arizona so much…..

Happy Friday! I seriously cannot believe that there's only one week left in February. I know I say that every month, but this one really flew by. Probably because its a short month. Or maybe because I've been so busy. But either way, its over and its almost March which means I get to see my handsome boyfriend soon! Yay!

Anyway, a new month means a new Ten Favorite Things! If you're not familiar with it, basically I choose a topic every month and you can come on by the first Monday of the month and share your ten favorite things about that topic!
So, Monday March 3 stop on by and share your ten favorite things about….drumroll please…..
the place you call 'home.' This one is open for interpretation. It can be your country, your state, city, or your actual home. '
Well, I'm from Arizona. I complain about it 99% of the time, but its really not all that bad.

the weather
It is hot as hell in Arizona in the summer. It literally sucks. And no, you never get used to it. But you can get a good tan all year long, and while everyone's stuck in five feet of snow during the winter I can wear shorts and a tank top.

I live six hours from the beach, two hours from snow in the winter, and just a few hours away from a Mexican vacation. So its really not that bad.

There are some really pretty places to hike around here. And when I say pretty, I mean not really that pretty at all but its still fun to hike.

it's big
I'm from Phoenix and there's like 5 million people and like 10 suburbs so there's a lot of fun stuff to do and lots of places to go. Oh, and lots of good concerts come here too.

you don't have to pay for heat in the winter
I'm grasping at straws here- I can't think of anything better

when you have to choose your state from a drop down menu, it's right there
It's really so convenient.

the sunsets
They're so very pretty!
good food
We have the best Mexican food and we have In-N-Out, so what more do you need?

We have three major universities, and we have pro hockey, football, basketball, and baseball. That makes for some good sports! Oh, and the Superbowl is going to be here next year!

if California magically breaks away, we'll be on the beach.

Obviously, I really don't like it here because I couldn't even come up with ten legitimate things that I like about it. But I thought it would be a good topic, so come share your ten favorite things about the place you call home so I can get some suggestions on places to move ;)

the boy behind my blog

I had mentioned in my blogging goals post that I was going to focus on the quality of my posts. One thing for me is that I want to write more actual content, so I'm not going to participate in many link up posts. Not that I did too many before, but the only one I think I will be participating in on a regular basis is The Boys Behind the Blog with Mallory and Stephanie. You know I love talking about my man, so I can't resist this one! It's such a fun link up. So Handsome, take it away!
Mal Smiles

1. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
Either somewhere where I could snowboard a lot but isn't too cold, or anywhere by a beach!
2. Sand or snow? He had no clue this was the next question when he answered that first one!
If I had to choose I'd probably say sand. I like dirt bikes.
3. What Winter Olympic sport would you rock at?
Haha probably none. But I'd say snowboarding. The obstacle one.
4. You're cooking a romantic dinner- what is your go-to dish?
I have no idea. Maybe steak and baked potato. Oh! And crab legs.
5. Fill in the blank: This year, I gave (your wife/girlfriend/fiance's name) a ____________________ for Valentine's Day? We originally filled this out before Valentine's Day but I asked him this one anyway. He just said "nice try!"
He got me lots of candy, homemade brownies, and he wrote in the journal that we pass back and forth! :)

i need balance

I should really be doing homework right now, but there's really no better time to blog, right? I'm an expert procrastinator and I hate it sometimes. I feel like I've been so busy lately and I haven't had time to just sit down and get stuff done. When I'm at work (I'm a nanny), the baby is always so fussy that I can't get anything done. Literally nothing. When I get home I'm too tired to do anything except what's due the next day. When I get home from class I'm exhausted and the last thing I want to think about is homework. I really need more time in the day.

I can only imagine what next semester is going to be like. You might've seen on Twitter that I'm saving up to graduate this December. Technically, I should be graduating May 2016, but I'm going to pull off graduating a year and a half early, thank goodness. But I have to bust my ass. I have to take three classes this summer, and then seven next semester. It sounds like a lot, but I'm taking six now so I know I can do it! The thought of being able to go live with DJ this year makes it all worth it.

But I definitely feel overwhelmed. I've accepted some really great opportunities lately in blog land, but on top of school and work, I'm starting to worry I might be taking on too much. I don't want the content on the blog to suffer from me being too busy, but by the time I get everything done that I need to for school and everything I feel like I have no time. I didn't have a post scheduled for today, so here I am rambling.

I love my blog, and I would never give it up, but sometimes I wonder why I stress myself out about it so much. Why do I have to post five times a day? Why does my content have to be amazing every day? Sure, it'll help my blog grow. But why do I care so much? This isn't my job. Its a hobby. A hobby that I only started six months ago. Sometimes I question why, as bloggers, we put up with the rude comments, the competition, and the stress that comes with our hobby. Sure, its rewarding. Blogging is amazing. The community is amazing. But do we take it too seriously sometimes?

I'm speaking for myself here, but I think I definitely do take it too seriously. I treat it more like a job than a hobby, and although I do make some money from it, I don't want it to be that way. I started the blog as a way to connect and to express myself, not as something that's going to stress me out and keep me up at night.  I'm not saying I'm quitting my blog, I'm not saying that I'm going to stop sponsorships, I'm not saying that I'm only going to show up twice a week. All I'm saying is that I've started making blogging a priority over some things that really are more important. I'm just overwhelmed right now, and I need to find a way to balance school, work, and the blog.

Wow this post was a total rant and I really had no intention of writing a post like this today, ha! But I'd love to hear if you have any tips on finding that balance!

PS if you havent heard this song you're missing out because its so good and I'm obsessed right now

 photo sgin_zps1af1f03c.png



Wow, I've been feeling inspired lately. I have a whole page full of blog ideas, I've been learning more and more about photography, and I've been designing like crazy. I'm so excited to take on more design clients, and I've been messing around with some inspiration boards lately. I thought I would share some colors, patterns, and fonts that I've been loving lately!

If any of this inspires you as much as it does for me, I would love to work with you over at Sparkle Out Loud.

Also, I just wanted to share some picture I've taken because I'm excited about it. I'm an amateur so don't judge, I'm just having fun!

I don't really know where/how to edit my photos, so if anyone has some good editing software that they'd recommend, I'd love your suggestions!

10 things that taste better than skinny feels

Hi my name is Brianna and I'm addicted to Pinterest. I usually just look at the food and wedding sections because I'm a fat girl at heart and I can't wait to get married. But once and a while when I'm feeling unmotivated, I'll scroll through the fitness section. Just about every time I do, I see some variation of this quote:
nothing tastes as good as skinny feels
FALSE. When I see this, the first thing I think is BS. Then I think of all of the things that taste way better than skinny feels and I end up in the In N Out drive through. I love food, obviously. And I suck at dieting. So, today I'm sharing ten things that taste better than skinny feels.
ten things that taste better than skinny feels
In-N-Out Burger. Which if you couldn't tell by my ad spots, I'm pretty obsessed with In-N-Out. I could eat it literally every day. If you've never had it, I'm so sorry. But you can come to AZ anytime and I will personally buy you one, because its like heaven in a little red tray. But basically if I had the choice between a hamburger (no onion or tomato, extra pickle) and the gym….like its not even a question, the gym can wait.

Carne Asada Fries. YUM. Handsome had some amazing carne asada fries (the bottom right picture) when we went to California last year. Again, if you don't have good mexican food where you're at, you're missing out because carne asada fries are the bomb diggity. Yeah, bomb diggity. I said it.

Ice Cream. Sometimes I think maybe I should go to the gym and then I'm like nahh I'll eat some ice cream instead.

Waffles. Especially those of the Belgian kind. It's funny because I had a picture of Dj eating a waffle from when we were in Belgium in one of my posts, and now its on Pinterest and it keeps getting pinned. Cool, I'm glad people like pictures of my boyfriend eating.

Chipotle. All day every day. My roommates and I go way too much and I wouldn't have it any other way because Chipotle is like the God of all things mexican food.

Crepes. Also better when eaten in Europe. Plus, I get mine with Nutella and strawberries, and strawberries are fruit. So basically that makes it healthy, right?

Cheesy Garlic Bread. YES PLEASE. I tweeted about this one the other day. Dj and I are meant to be because we can talk about our love for garlic bread for a good half hour. That's love, right?
Shawingz. This was a place in Germany that had amazing wings…and chicken and waffles…and fries. Who would've thought that the most amazing hot wings would be in Germany, right? They had like every sauce you could imagine. Even weird ones like cheddar popcorn. But it was amazing. And we were total fatties.
Pizza. PLEASE look how happy Dj is to be eating pizza in this picture. It kills me every time. It may or may not have been after a crazy night in Amsterdam so pizza was well deserved.
Hot Cheetos. You know my love for hot cheetos. No explanation needed there.

Okay but did I seriously just write a whole post about food? My inner fat girl just came out and I love it. But anyway, there you have it, ten things that taste way better than skinny feels!

I tweeted the other day that I needed to start saving money. I found out that I can graduate in December, but in order to do so, I have to save up to pay for a couple summer classes. I honestly have no clue how to save. I really suck at it.

happy valentine's day!

Happy Valentine's Day loves! I'm sure 99% of you know this, and are probably tired of hearing it, but I thought that since today is V-Day that I would share mine and handsome's love story again. I've shared the full thing once in this post, but it was when I first started blogging and its kind of a mess.

If you visit my 'love' page, you'll find the quickest possible version of our love story:
But there's not real background info there. Mine and Dj's moms have been besties forever. Obviously, when you're 5, if your mom has a friend, her kids are your friends too. So, Dj and I used to play together when we were younger. Here's a picture of us at my birthday party way back when and then now!
So anyway, as we got older, we lost touch. I remember running into him my freshman year (his senior year) at a track meet and barely acknowledging him while he and my mom talked. Oops ;) And when my mom asked if I wanted to go to graduation party, I thought she was crazy for even thinking I might want to go..I mean, I hadn't talked to him in years.

Fast forward four years to my freshman year of college. I'm friends with his mom and sister on Facebook and I was doing some casual stalking when his name popped up. So of course my stalking went from casual to excessive and creepy and I stalked him pretty hardcore. I told my mom that he was hot but I didn't think he would remember me. So what does my mom do? Messages him and tells him what I just said. Thanks mom....but really. So I added him, and I was sitting on my couch with my best friend (we were home on Thanksgiving break) when he messaged me. I think I shit my pants because I was so excited that he sent me a message. 

Well, we've talked every day since that first message and I'm seriously the luckiest girl in the world. We talked for a couple months before we hung out in person, because he was in Germany and wasn't coming home until January. But basically right from the start we knew we had something special.

He's made this past year the most amazing year of my life! I got to spend the summer in Germany with him and we've done so many fun things together. Our love has grown so incredibly much its amazing. On Wednesday I got my Valentine's package from him, which you might've seen on Instagram filled with a bunch of candy I shouldn't eat, homemade brownies, and then some special stuff like the journal we send back and forth and write to each other in. I wish I could spend today with him, but I guess a Skype date will have to do!

Should we start counting how many times I've told this story on the blog? Probably too many, but what else would I talk about on Valentine's Day? I'm off to dinner and wine with the roomies tonight, but I hope you all have a very special holiday with a very special someone!

looking forward

Not much has been going on around here lately. I've been swamped with school. I have two exams this week and two next week, so I'm just super duper excited to study for those! Kill me now. But there are a few things I'm looking forward to!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. As you probably already know, I love Valentine's Day. Handsome already got (and opened) the package I sent him because we're both to impatient to wait. It's probably my fault for sending it a whole week early. But he loved it, so that's good. He got me (I opened mine early too) a bunch of chocolate, homemade brownies (yes, he made me browines....sweet, right?) and he wrote in the journal that we send back and forth. Anyway, my roommates and I are going out to dinner tomorrow (and I get to eat lots of dairy and garlic bread since its a holiday yolo) and then we're going to come back and watch a bunch of cheesy romantic comedies, eat chocolate, and drink wine. Because we can.
Be Mine for Valentine's Day
I'm bought my plane ticket. I get to go see Handsome over my spring break. Only for a couple of days though. It's going to be the shortest amount of time we've spent together so far, so it's going to be hard to leave I'm sure. But, it'll cut the waiting in half. It'll have been two months since I'd seen him last, and then we'll only have to wait two months until I get to spend the whole summer with him. And I can't wait for that.

I've been playing around with some designing and photography some more. I really love it! If you're interested in a design, you can see my design site here. I keep learning more and more about both design and photography and it's really becoming a passion!

 I might be able to graduate in December. I'm supposed to graduate next May, but if I can save up and take an extra class this summer, I might be able to graduate another semester early! The though of graduating this year excites me so much! I'm going to try really hard to start saving and get everything figured out!

What're you looking forward to?
