I'm moving to WordPress!

So don't be looking for new blogs at this site, look at that one!

It's still a work in progress, but I've got it to a point that I really like and can now let people see it. :)


Farewell Blogger! It was nice knowin' ya!

Zachary, This Is For You.

A tip for all the college students/soon to be college students:

Skipping all your morning classes to sleep in until 11 + Three naps later in the afternoon DOES NOT EQUAL Going to bed early to ensure you get enough sleep for your test the next morning.

We'll see how this goes tomorrow.

On another note, I'm starting to feel more included in things. I mean, not by much, but by enough to feel like I have friends. And get this - THEY'RE MUSIC ED! I "studied" with some kids from my music ed class for a while, and I can really relate to them and be myself. Who knew?

And finally, Zachary Horst, this is for you:

The more I think about it, the more my desire to teach grows. I literally cannot see myself choosing any other career and being happy. I don't even care what I teach! I can teach lessons, or a elementary music class, or an elementary math class, or even elementary english! I will be happy teaching whatever is available to me and it will bring me so much joy watching the children in my classroom grow.

Also, I've become addicted to Kit Kat bars. I used to love them as a child, but for the past five or so years I never touched them. Well, I've rediscovered them. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

I also love the Disney channel. It's unending cheesiness and cleanliness is just so refreshing. I'll take Disney over Teen Mom anyday!

And, I still love my nose piercing! It is a little boring having to sit with my nose in warm salt water for ten minutes twice a day, but it really helps! It really draws out all the pus and gunk that's inside my skin and makes it feel less painful! But, I've been heating up the water too much lately, so I have to sit with a cotton ball that's soaked in salt water on my nose for about ten minutes before I can put my nose in the water. Otherwise, I burn myself and my nose is bright red for a good thirty minutes! But I'd rather have to wait to use hot, sterilized water than possible soak my nose in water that's not hot enough to be effective.

That is all. I will post more, loves. I promise.

So yesterday I did something many people would not expect me to do.


It hurt really badly, but it looks so cute! I love it!

But this morning when I woke up, it was sticking out of my nose and I was worried something bad was going down, but I called the place where I got it pierced and they told me to just push it back in! Haha :) I'm going to take really really good care of it so that the scar tissue doesn't build up and I don't get hypertrophic scarring or a keloid. That would be horrible! It's the only thing I'm worried about.

And my parents weren't too thrilled when I told them. They freaked out, but at the same time they were also understanding. My mom's response (this was before I got it pierced and I told her I was going to) was a lot of whining and saying stuff like "Why would you do this? I never thought one of my kids would want that! Why are you doing this to yourself? I would tell you no, but you're an adult now and I can't!" and then my dad's response (this was after I got it pierced and I told him I did it) was "This is all a joke right? You're just kidding with me right?" and then once I convinced him I actually did it he was like  "Were you drunk? Were you on drugs?" and once I convinced him I was completely sober he finally said "Well I guess everybody needs something to show off their individuality and make them unique."

But it's really not that bad. It's not super noticeable, and the good thing is if I decide I don't like it, I just take it out, the hole closes up, and I go on like nothing happened. But I don't think I'll be doing that any time soon. ;)

Well here's some pictures of each stage of the process :) Enjoy

 Pre-piercing nerves

Piercing! It was SO painful!
If you look closely, you can see the needle that just went through my nose in front of his left index finger.

Pierced Nose!

I feel like I don't fit in anywhere.

I don't fit in with my high school friends anymore, because we're just all off in different directions and lost contact.
I don't fit in with my "church" friends, because I went the to the school that was farthest away so I never see any of them so I don't understand inside jokes or updates about life.
I don't fit in in at OU because everyone who's anyone is in a Sorority or Frat. I have no desire.
I don't fit in at any of the churches in Norman because they've all already made their cliques and circles and I feel like an intruder.
I don't fit in with Jon and his friends because they're all petroleum engineers, and I'm just a mere music education major.
I don't fit in with Jon because he doesn't really have the time for me, since getting a degree in PE is so time consuming.
I don't fit in with my family because my siblings are still young and immature and don't really want to spend time with me.

I'm just left out everywhere I go.

I feel like an orange trying to take up residence in an apple tree.
