It’s been a while

It has been a long time since my last blog entry, but I’m definitely going to start writing more frequently. (I know, I said this before, but I mean it this time).

Today was officially my last class as an undergrad. I turned in my final Art paper and, afterwards, my friends and I headed to what is known to be my absolute favorite restaurant of all time- The Cheesecake Factory. I have been there (what seems to be) over 100 times in my lifetime and, for the most part, have enjoyed every minute of it. My favorite dish is the Chicken Piccata (w/no capers) and my favorite cheesecake is the Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheesecake. When I’m hungry and not in the mood to try anything new, I know that my hunger will always be satisfied by these two treats.

After lunch, we went to see “The Hangover.” I wasn’t much of a fan. The commercials pretty much showed the funniest parts of the movie. It was lacking in humor and I found myself antsy and waiting for it to end. It was the same, cliche story line about a fun day gone wrong (not remembering what happened the day before and partaking in actions that you wouldn’t normally partake in when sober). It consisted of a trio of that weird in-law, the immature, “cool” guy (or what the media has constructed to be cool), and the smart one who doesn’t really fit the criteria of the other friends in the group. It wasn’t horrible, but it definitely isn’t the type of movie I’d see again.

It is currently 12 in the morning and I’m not tired at all. I had an exhausting week and it all caught up to me today. After coming home from the movies, I fell asleep at around 8:30 and didn’t wake up until 30 minutes ago. I guess now I’ll just take a shower and watch TV.

I’ll leave you with a trailer of “The Hangover.” I’ll let you be the judge.


Today is December 29th, which means only 7 more days until my winter quarter at DePaul begins.  I feel as though this 6 week winter break has flew by so quickly.  But, with that said, it’s not necessarily a bad thing.  Seeing how time seems to fly by, before I know it, it will be June and I’ll be walking across that stage, God willing!

Meanwhile, I’m really excited about the trip I’ll be taking to London towards the end of March.  I’m just hoping the weather won’t consist of rainy, chilly days.  I can deal with 50°, but it’s going to be my spring break and I don’t necessarily want to deal with any temperature below that.   Regardless, I can’t wait.  It’s going to be so cool.  Perhaps I’ll even come back with a British accent, haha.  Stay tuned to find out…
