Hey there! :) I thought I'd share a great new app I found. It's called Viggle, and it's probably my favorite app ever.

Basically, you get points for watching TV, and after you accumulate a certain amount of points, you get to cash them in for gift cards! You get extra points for watching featured shows, and if you watch live shows (like American Idol) you can play along with a live trivia game where you get extra points for every question you get right. 

I was personally most excited about the Sephora eGift card. You need 14,000 points for a $10 gift card, which I accumulated in about a week. The thing is, I don't even watch that much TV. My little trick is that I check into the shows that offer the most points and either watch something else or turn off the TV all together. You don't need to actually be present for the whole show. I think this is a steal, if you ask me!

Oh, hey there! Long time, no see!

It is Winter Break for me again and I have promised myself that I will pay more attention to my poor little blog! I just finished the fall semester of my junior year in college, so the work is only getting more intense. What kind of sucks for me is that I don't really have a main focus or theme of what I want my blog to be about. I can't seem to commit to any of my ideas! Hopefully you will be able to bear with me as I experiment with different ideas. :P

Valentine's Day Outfit!

My nail polish is OPI - Japanese Rose Garden :)

       So I think I finally figured out what I'm going to wear for Valentine's Day! I'm not sure if we're going to celebrate it tomorrow or Saturday yet. Maybe we will celebrate both days, who knows :) I ended up getting my boyfriend these chocolates that he likes, some funny heart boxers that say "pucker up!" :P, some "love coupons" haha, and this tiny abridged version of "Romance For Dummies." It was mainly silly stuff but I also wrote him a beautiful love letter as well. Maybe I'll post the letter on here. I usually write him something thoughtful for special occasions. And I make copies of them for my personal reference to make sure I don't just repeat myself in every letter haha.

Two weeks without my lover

Two weeks without my lover
I'm in this boat alone
Floating down a river named emotion
Will I make it back to shore
Or drift into the unknown

     Sorry I haven't written anything in so long. The past few weeks have been crazy with snow, and a few days without power or sadly any internet. I've been spending a lot of my free time trying to complete my assignments for school. A lot of my teachers still made us e-mail them papers and such that were due since we've had so many days off of school due to the snow. Oh well....  Things have kind of been crazy with my life in general lately. So, I've also been trying to work on that lately as well. Everything should be back to normal soon though.

11:11 comes twice a day, because everyone deserves a second chance.

     I always make a wish at 11:11, who doesn't? It's something fun to do that my boyfriend and I do together twice a day. Even when we're apart, we always text each other to remember to make a wish! I find that it has enhanced my life in many ways. I'm not saying that the specific time of 11:11 has any specific power or anything; it just happens to be a time that catches people's eye. You could wish on any time you'd like and it would work the same way.
     The important thing is that you are taking time out of your day to make it clear in your mind something that you wish would happen. There's a lot that would surprise you about human psychology and the power of wishful thinking. By positive thinking, and having those feelings of optimism, it is much more likely that your "wishes" will come true. Also, by 11:11 coming twice a day, it is only strengthening its power. The two times occur morning and night, so these positive thoughts are the first things you are thinking when you wake up and the last things in your mind before you go to bed. 
    I've always believed that visualization is the key to the manifestation of your desires. If you have never watched The Secret, I highly recommend that you do so. I promise it will enhance your life in one way or another. I have read many stories about people who have managed to "will" certain things to be; like the young boy with a brain tumor who every night imagined tiny little fighter jets in his head, blasting away at the cancer until it was gone, only to eventually find out the the tumor kept shrinking until it finally disappeared. Wishing on 11:11 is just a simplified version of that. Taking time out of your day to visualize what you want, and putting all of your positive energy into that thought. So, tonight, make sure you make a wish :)

Where's the beach?

love builds up the broken wall
and straightens the crooked path.
love keeps the stars in the firmament
and imposes rhythm on the ocean tides
each of us is created of it
and i suspect
each of us was created for it

     Part of the reason why I picked this particular photo to post today is because I'm watching the Jersey Shore right now. Is that bad? haha. Do any of you watch that show? I find it highly entertaining, and I enjoy watching it with my boyfriend :)  I actually asked if I could leave work early tonight so I could make it home in time for the show to start!
