Friday Confessions – I May or May Not Have


*Said in an extremely annoying voice*

If you can’t imagine that voice, just look at this picture and imagine it conveyed in voice form…


I haven’t done a Friday Confessions for some time now, but I figured that this would be the best opportunity to share what I may (or may not have) been doing recently.

1. I may or may not have… acquired a tiny sliver of the road rage that I’ve been chiding my mom about for years. People in cities are rude. People driving in cars in cities are CRAZY!


2. I may or may not have… laid back down one day this week after my alarm clock went off. 30 minutes later I woke up extremely worried that I slept in too long and would be late to work. Needless to say that won’t be happening again anytime soon (I hope).


3. I may or may not have… spent all of my break time today internet health diagnosing on the web. I basically typed in every symptom I had and scoured every single webpage that came up trying to figure what could possibly be going on with me.


4. I may or may not be… extremely excited for Pretty Little Liars to return next week. I both love it and hate it at the same time— is that even possible?


5. I may or may not have… an extreme book-buying obsession. Why oh why do I feel the need to buy more books when I already have so many unread ones at home?


6. I may or may not have… not focused quite enough at the Memorial Day Parade on Monday. It was cold. So very very cold. And raining. How could I possibly focus when all I could think about was my frozen toes?!


We look actually kind of happy here… That’s before the rain started!

7. I may or may not have… taken a grocery shopping break during my drive home last week. It took almost five hours, a full two hours longer than it’s supposed to. So about three hours in I stopped at Meijer to pick up some ripe bananas for snacking, a water bottle for drinking, and the Pitch Perfect CD for listening (since my radio has decided to play only two channels, none of which I listen to!).


8. I may or may not have… enjoyed grading tests for my mom over the weekend. I love tests.


9. I may or may not have… too many blogs in my bloglovin’. So many that I can’t possibly read them all in a day and comment on every single one of them.


10. I may or may not be… way behind on commenting/replying on my own blog as well. Thanks again for being patient!


I’m also planning on linking up to Meghan at Clean Eats Fast Feets with her Week in Review on Monday since this is basically my weekly confessions!



Questions for you: What is your Friday confession? Do you have road rage? I still wouldn’t classify myself as having it, but when people cut me off it’s hard not to get mad. If I didn’t hover my foot over the brake at all times I’m not sure I would make it out alive each day. Seriously. Did you have bad traffic last weekend because of Memorial Day? Are there any shows that you are looking forward to this summer? Does anybody else have a book-buying problem like me? Do you want to form a support group? 

Nerdy Girl Survey

First off, I want to thank all of you for your awesome comments on Wednesday’s post. If you haven’t read them yet, go check it out now! There are some great thoughts there.

Second, next week I want to do a round-up of all the posts on this lovely blog world about not falling into that “trap.” So, if you wrote a post, or if you want to recommend someone else’s post, feel free to leave a link in the comments!


Alright, so if you all didn’t already think I was a nerd from my Excel reference the other day, this post will leave no doubt in your mind.

One of the blogs that I read, Will Study For Food, came up with this awesome survey post in the beginning of January that I just loved. Shoot, give me any survey and I will confess my undying love for it. And that’s the truth.

So, if you haven’t gotten tired of learning about me so far, here is another fun survey to take a look at!


1. What is your favorite protein?

Chicken. Or beef. Right now I guess I’d say beef pot roast. With some carrots and zucchini noodles. Yum.


2. Pencil or pen?


Most of the time pencil, especially for homework or notes. When I am writing a rough draft of something on paper though, I have to use pen. I’m not quite sure why, but my best reports start off in pen. Not pencil, and definitely not typewritten from the get-go.

Fun Fact: I have this permanent indentation on my right middle finger from gripping my writing utensils too hard. It used to be a lot bigger in elementary school, but it started to hurt so I have since practiced gripping not quite so hard.

3. Handwritten notes or laptop?

Handwritten all the way. I have a five-subject notebook and everything.


4. What has been your favorite class so far?

Ethnic Studies hands down.


5. If you could “re-do” any class from college, which one would you?

Probably my business class from last semester. It was really easy, and kind of fun, but in hindsight I didn’t learn very much. I probably should have looked more into what teacher I picked, but I was a freshman and didn’t have anyone to ask for recommendations.


6. Where is your most productive study spot?


My blue mushroom chair. It’s also my most procrastinator spot, but we don’t need to get into that now, you guys already know that I have a tendency to put things off (especially when it comes to walking to my car on Fridays…).

7. How do you organize your day?

Simple. I don’t.


I do make tons of lists and plan out my day, but I rarely follow them. Really I just like making lists.

8. What is your least favorite class?

Can I pick none? Seriously, I love all of my classes. If I had to pick my least favorite though, it would have to be Statistics. Our graduate student is from another country and there is definitely a language/social barrier.


9. What is the best time to study for you?

I do my best homework at night, but I do my best test studying for tests in the morning.


10. Do you have a dream student gadget?

This is a toughie. I wasn’t really sure, so I typed “dream student gadget” into Google and came up with this. Like I said before- I Love Lists!

This list in particular reminded of a gadget that I’d love to have: A new camera (so… if any of you out there happen to have an extra one lying around, or happen to work for a camera company… my arms are open graciously to thee).

Carrots N’ Cake mentioned awhile back (Jan. 24 I believe) that her favorite camera was one sale, so of course I had to check it out. Sounds pretty good if you ask me. A little “expensive” at $249.00 but I guess quality really does count people!

Normally I would post some recipes that I’ve found throughout the week for a Friday Food Finds, but I’m just not feeling it today. Instead, I’m going to share some of the recent pins that I’ve pinned to my board on Pinterest. Can one ever say pin too much?

I feel like this every time I go to the grocery store. Anybody else?

Haha. This pin is from a board I’ve created for all things Miami Heat. We’re finally upgrading my brother’s room from Power Rangers this summer 🙂

Hmmm… On second thought, maybe I should have used this for my nerdy girl gadget above? Genius.

Who says I can’t dream?


Tell me:
