What a Week Already!

Hey girls!

OMG! Its so cold outside, and it ACTUALLY snowed today for the first time. I was so so so excited! I was sitting in class thinking where was this snow an hour ago!?

Well today has just been busy, I am so fed up with my English class I could scream, but instead I am rewriting ALL of my papers and taking them to my ditsy male teacher tomorrow with all my attitude and politely, but SERIOUSLY demanding that he take all of my revisions! You girls have got to understand, the English department here is great but its a little bit too much at times! Its just very rigorous, and I don't intend to learn every ounce of Shakespeare because I just don't care to do so! I get that it's important, but my Lord! I understand going to a liberal arts school makes for a more well rounded person, as they put it, but you know what being well rounded doesn't just come from the classroom! I believe that it comes from the kind of person you are, especially outside of the classroom! I have just never written a good paper, because I always write exactly like I talk and that doesn't always work. Luckily, he is very easy to suck up to, and he keeps telling me I have a B in his class! He is a retired business man, so maybe he just doesn't care and will really give me a B. Oh well, I am just gonna keep on smiling and pray for a good outcome.

On a lighter note, I bought these really comfortable ugg boots today and I am in love! I have been wearing my new VV fleeces, leggins, and uggs for 2 days and I am in Heaven!

So, I have been reading my "What Would Jackie Do" book today and I started right around lunch and just finished! I highlighted all of the good parts and oh my gosh I just love her!

Here are some of my favorite things about her!
-She got Vitamin B injections when she was tired...I get those too!! More because my B12 is low, but how funny!
-She did therapy at least twice a week because she loved to bitch about everyday annoyances and nobody ever had to know, she said it was money well spent...that part made me laugh! But she is probably right, it is probably not a bad idea!
-She loved Lilly!
-She gave great ways to prevent aging, and stress!
-She was a reporter for a newspaper!
-She treated everyone like they were the most important person in the room, and that is why she was one of the most loved women in America by everyone! She was just sweet to everyone! (This is such an important life lesson!)
-Lastly, her style and charm are classic!

I love the book, and I have mentioned it multiple times on here, so if you haven't read it yet, go get it!

I am going on Saturday for a tour of Charlotte Broadcasting School, in Charlotte, NC! I am really looking forward to it, I haven't told my parents yet because I have started doing more and more for myself and relying on myself to get things done and chase my dreams. I hate to bug them about what I want to do until I can prove it will be done!
This school is amazing! I would obviously still go to college, but this school offers a 4 month program with 4 phases.
1. Class Time where I would learn techniques and terms used within news
2. Practice Time where I would get to be in front of a camera in their studio and practice my speech and writing skills.
3. Demo Tape where I would produce and record my own demo tape which would have around 30 stories.
4. Lifelong job placement which is where the school will let me use their studio whenever I need it, as well as help me to find a secure job upon graduating college!

There are campus' all around America, but Charlotte is close to home so I will go there!

I am also applying to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts summer program in Los Angeles. It looks really great, and very hands on so I am looking forward to seeing what comes of it.

Lastly, I am applying for the year long Broadcasting Journalism program at New York Film Academy. I am simply applying to see what happens, and then I can make the choice of what I want to do.
I would clearly wait until I graduate to do either of the last 2 programs that I listed.

On another note, Wallace this weekend was so much fun! I went home with one of my roommates, and the first night we got there kind of late so we just hung out for a little bit and then headed to bed. Saturday, we went to Wilmington to shop and we saw Milly from "One Tree Hill" near the J Crew we had just come out of...I wanted to get her autograph, but I am sure she hates being bothered in public, so we just stood in shock for a second and continued our shopping! We also went to Marshalls and TJ Maxx, who both by the way have the cutest shoes right now!

That night, we went to a concert and the band was amazing! If they had a CD, I would have gotten it! They sounded alot like Dave Matthews Band!
After the concert, we went back to my friends house and watched "Scarlet Takes A Tumble" for the millionth time! If you haven't seen that, I posted the link in another post, and you NEED to go watch it because its hilarious!

Last night, my friend and I went to the mall to do some retail therapy (which I do believe is real therapy! It works every time!) I went to look at the Lilly because it was rumored she was having a sale, and SHE WAS! I know I shouldn't have, but I walked out with a new Lilly Oxford Pink Shirt Dress. It is really cute, and I know I will wear it a lot! In fact, I cant wait to wear it to church this Sunday!

I hope y'all are having a good Tuesday!
