"Four Things I'm Thinking Right Now"

I'm really beginning to loathe the word "busy". It started as an annoyance, grew to a mild dislike, increased a smidge to hatred, and now we've hit the "loathe entirely" phase. I don't just hate the word, I also hate the feeling that comes with it. So this last week I figured if I didn't say the word "busy" then I could hold off feeling busy. It didn't really work all that well.

The conundrum here is that I like being "busy" and I'm the person in charge of making myself so "busy".
I'm basically a nut case. 
Please, don't try to understand me.
You will fail and I will feel bad.

Wait, where is the post going? Shit.. I have no idea. Seriously, I'm typing my thoughts as they come into my head and I swear to you that I had sort of plotted out a post idea (in my head) before I started rambling about the word "busy" and now I just have no clue where that was going. Son of a bitch.
So.. This is awkward now.

Uh.. Let's wing it?

I still haven't chosen a book for April's Blogger Book Club. Ugh. Sometimes the pressure to choose the perfect book gets to me and I panic and usually don't choose a book until right before I write the post. Not always, but sometimes. Okay actually, I just spent the last 15 minutes narrowing the choices down to these four. Help me choose! Especially if you'd like to link up and join us! (we are linking up TOMORROW for march's bbc book The Fault In Our Stars, by the wayyyy) Wink wink, hint hint, nudge nudge.

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Marie Semple
The Smart One by Jennifer Close
The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard

OR we could just read Divergent by Veronica Roth because I really want to read it so I can see the movie, but I'm so damn "busy" that I don't have time to read extra books. BUT if it was the BBC book for April, I'd have to read it. See where I'm going with this?

My NCAA bracket is totally jacked up. It's actually really annoying to me because IU isn't in the tournament this year (no, i really, really don't want to talk about it) so I chose all of my picks with my head and not my heart. I was feeling so, so good about it this year! The really, really annoying thing is that a lot of my upsets really happened. It was my smart, "safe" picks that blew up in my face. And my Duke pick. Damnit Duke, what the hell? I'm gonna go ahead and tell you guys that I have Michigan State winning it all, so if they lose this weekend I'm gonna be shitty. Yes, I do care about things like this. Yes, I am a girl. Yes, I will be spending my entire weekend in a skirt and heels. Yes, I will still check the scores to the games while no one is looking. Don't try to understand me.

It's Allie's birthday today. I shouldn't have to tell you what you need to do now.

I'm obsessed with this song right now. Also, he's quite attractive. I'm just throwing that out there.

Guess what.. I just decided that I'm going to go up there and number all of those things I've typed and then title this post something like "Four Things I'm Thinking Right Now" or something else stupid and super cheesy. Yep, just decided that's what I'm doing. But if you've read this far then you probably already know that I've done that.. So, this seems like a wasted paragraph. I refuse to delete it now though. On principal.

Well thanks for stopping by today guys. It's been a pleasure, as always.
Uhh.. wish this post was better for you, but uhh.. It's not. Sooo...


This is an old picture, but I'm throwing it up here because #1, I can.  #2, I'm giving you all a thumbs up for the day. But #3, most importantly because it's a selfie and I'm also obsessed with this super annoying, super stupid song that's barely a song.. 

I quote it all the damn time. It's so annoying. ILOVEITSOMUCH! #Live


  1. Never apologize for quoting #selfie. This song defines a generation and it's timeless. (ha-ha I love it too).

  2. I know we aren't supposed to judge books by their covers. But...I LOVE book #2's cover! like...too much lol these all seem like books I would enjoy reading though :)

  3. Before my move I was reading a lot. Now I haven't been so much so I'm behind on my reading challenge for the year. I haven't been able to participate in a BBC link up this year and that makes me sad but I really hope to in April. My vote for the BBC book for April is either The Smart One, or The Scent of Rain and Lightning. I'm also all for reading Divergent again because I want to see the movie and need a refresher on the book and I haven't yet gotten my hands on the third book so I want to read the first two again anyways. I'm anxious to see what book you pick!

  4. i judge books by their covers ALL the time. im the worst., and because of that, it makes me want to read the first book so bad. but i have like 15 books at home from the library (no joke, not an exaggeration) that i need to get through first.

  5. I read the Light Between Oceans for my book club, and NONE of us liked it. It had great reviews and tons of love, but it was just really a downer. I wouldn't recommend it.

  6. i HATE when people overuse the word busy. i really try to pick any other word but busy

  7. You should have picked Florida to win :)

    The Light Between Ocean, Where'd You Go Bernadette and The Smart One are all on my reading list!

  8. I just finished Divergent so I would be ahead of the BBC but I still love it. I completely forgot that tomorrow we're linking up so now I have to go change my scheduled post - awkward :)

  9. I have read the Smart one and I liked it but didn't love it but it was good. Ummm Sam is hot and I love that song.

  10. Yay for mentioning my birthday! Love you lady!!

  11. I just added these books to my reading list! love seeing new books to read!


I love you people! Let's be friends.
