Roaring 20s!

There aren't songs or words to describe how in love I am with my friends right now. Luckily there are some pictures...

This weekend was one of my favorites. Seriously February, thank you for all these birthdays! It's the greatest month of the year.

Jersey Shore, Mansion, Roaring 20s, Rave = Amazing! I had so much fun dancing - Temple parties need more dancing.

Now there are a million facebook pictures and every single one makes me crack up. I was literally crying from laughing as I looked at them. Randomly throughout the day I'll think of something that happened this weekend or a picture of someone with a mask on and just start giggling

Basically, I LOVE my friends. I love how much fun we have together. I love being young. I love dressing up (I'm pretty sure over half my facebook pictures are of me in costume). I love dancing with cute boys. I love all of it!

Name Games

Stars - Your Ex-Lover is Dead
They are coming June 3 if anyone wants to go with me! We can go see them and then hangout at my beautiful, adorable apartment (on the roof or roaming the streets of South Philly)

I noticed when we attempted the ABC game that there are patterns or connections between the names of guys I hook up with or like and the way they act/treat me. For instance in my experience...

Daves are super flirty and ask you out on dates, but are usually too flirty for anyone's good and don't usually stick around for second dates.
Wills call you back (sometimes it takes months though) and kind of linger around for a while.
Ryans are my tattooed rebel crushes and always seem to have girlfriends.
Gregs are tall black men, 2 for 3.
Charlie is actually a nickname for Satan (2 for 2) and they will, right when you think things are going well, publicly abandon you.
Kevins are creepy guys you makeout with just to makeout with someone, gross I know.

I'm Having a BABY!!!!

Well my sister and brother-in-law are!!!

I teared up when I first saw this. I'm so glad Chloe will have a sibling! My sister is about 10 weeks along and her due date is in early September.

I can't help but have a couple selfish thoughts which I feel really guilty for though. First, I think I'm going to London in the Fall so I probably won't be there when the baby is born or meet it until December.

Secondly, I wish I lived closer or that I could still fly home. Seeing this video made me so home sick. I miss my family and it kills me that I can't be a bigger part of Chloe's life. Up until the time Chloe was like 3.5 I was always around. I won't have that with this kid.

Also I always imagined myself living wherever I wanted and hoped to live in California or out West somewhere for at least a little while, but now I feel even more conflicted. I want to be close to my family. Does that mean I have to move back to at least the Boston area when I graduate college? I guess I don't have to worry about that yet, and I should just enjoy the baby growing process.

We're having a BABY!!!

Best Birthday Weekend!

I cannot even describe this weekend. It was the best and definitely one to remember - Phamous Philadelphians Party, silly shenanigans at a Jersey Shore party, embarrassing moments caught in glorious myspace-esque pictures, a record breaking snow storm (thank you snow gods! you know me too well), getting to and from the party in that snow storm, waking up to a snowed-in world and the BEST FORT EVER, spending days in the fort with some of my all time favorite people, food, more fort time, sunny birthday, family dinner, delicious vegan cake (thank you Caitlin!) and more fort time.

It was bizarre and fantastic. It was not how I would have imagined my 20th birthday because it was wayyyy better. Haha

All of the pictures as a whole are an excellent story of the weekend. Fort Nam was so weird. It was like going into a time warp. At least five of us would be stuffed in there for hours at a time before we thought to leave. Once outside I would question my time spent in there. It was like an alternate universe where I was also drunk because even though I wasn't Nam made us all a little insane. Perfection.

And if you think any of this is weird... listen to this song

20 has been good to me so far. Thank you everyone. I love you.

Growin' Up

I got an internship at the Philadelphia Daily News! And I've already gotten a couple good size clips I feel kind of grown up going to work at the office, and even though I don't have to dress up that much I still kind of do.

This is how I want to dress, but I tone it down most days. (By tone it down, I mean pull my skirt down haha)

I'm only taking four classes though, three days a week. Part of me doesn't like it because I see less people my own age. I think this is just exaggerated by my fear of growing up and working in an office where I don't get to meet that many new people... or maybe it's just my fear of growing up.

My birthday is less than a week away, and I'm going to be 20! YIKES! That is so old, but still very exciting. And I literally cannot wait for my birthday party!
