Sunday Social

I'm trying to be in a better groove of blogging, but since school starts tomorrow we'll just have to see about that. I do really want to do a summer recap, but I guess my countdown post might have to count as that for now... Anyway, A for effort today as I link up for Sunday Social!

1. What are you most looking forward to about fall? Classes, but not the work (necessarily); college football (go frogs!); my sister being in Rose Festival in October; the first season of the college football playoff!; the fair; the SYTYCD tour!; weddings; TV shows starting back up!

2. What is your favorite sports team?  Anything TCU is good at, so football and baseball; call me fair-weather, but I just like to have fun haha; and the Rangers are fun when they're not sucking miserably (see this season)

3. If you could back to college is there one thing you would change?  I rushed, but dropped out because I got cut by what I considered my favorite at the time; I kind of wish I had stuck it out and pledged before making my decision of whether or not I actually liked the sororities that had invited me back. I also wish I had studied a little harder. My grades were awful freshman year and I spent the rest of my time making it up to balance out my GPA. 

4. What was your favorite class you ever took? TCU requires every student to take a religious course before they graduate and I took two; the second was called Religious Sects & Cults and it was all these random (smaller) religions that were SOOOO interesting. In my major, I took a Corporate Social Responsibility class (which I get to take again this semester!) and it was all about how companies give back to their communities in different ways to keep up appearances and be good citizens.

5. Reach into your purse- what is the first thing you grab? Hand sanitizer. Or my sun glasses. Wish a suppressed immune system, I don't go many places without my hand sani. And of course, being blue-eyed I need sun glasses 97% of the time.

Are you linking up today? What are your favorite parts of Fall?!

The Final Countdown

As summer comes to a close, I've decided to count down my awesome summer. Especially since I've been SUPER M.I.A. in blog-landia.

11 books I've read from start to finish so far this summer. Wanna be my friend on GoodReads? Got a book suggestions for me?

10 days until school starts. This will be my last year of school. I will not get a Ph.D. God bless those of you who do.

9 weeks since I moved into my new (quieter) apartment.
My "gallery wall." Still not 100% on it...
8 years since I started my Freshman year of college - what the WHAT?!

7 years since I was a Deb. Now my sister is! Can't wait for October (Texas Rose Festival)!!!
Dress rehearsal, summer 2007
6 days since the Hot Mess Express Weekend of 2014 (my friend Brigitte came to Fort Worth for the first time in almost 2 years. 3 nights straight of going out. I'm still pooped!)
At Studio 80 with Maggie and Brigitte
5 months until my last semester of school ever starts.

4 times I've seen Lady Gaga now. I've seen her every time she's come to Dallas. Love or hate her personally, she puts on a damn good show and it's worth every penny of that ticket. Plus there's EXCELLENT people watching.
This was my actual view of part of her catwalk. So close.
3 years of being a mom to the cutest, bestest Furbaby ever.
Nappy and Ol' Ripp at TCU
2 weeks until the best time of year: College Football Season. Go frogs.
Panorama from the first game last season. Hot. As. Balls.
1 full week of working at my AWESOME internship left. Then I'll be doing some part-time interning during school. So glad I found this amazing opportunity and met the awesome people there.

How was your summer?
