real life

mm back too soon from Florida! It was love. Even though it rained the first two days I was there, and I didn't get too much of a was love. Eating sea food and relaxing was the agenda. I turned off my phone for most of the time and didn't dare check my email. It was nice to let go of everything. Though, now it's back to real life and I feel refreshed today! The weather is nice which makes everything better. Hope it stays that way til' summer. I just can't understand why I didn't transfer to a school further down south? Or near the coast? Oh well...

So I've got a new favorite song! I heard it last night playing in a restaurant and it's been in my head ever since! I FINALLY found it this morning after looking forever for it! Listen to it...jon mclaughlin...v.good! :)

lots of love,,,

hurrah for quote wednesday!

 Thinking that I'm going to have to steal other blogger's "quote wednesday." How original, right? ;) Take this quote and let it better your life!

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:25-34

Off to Florida then.

lots of love.

uno mas dia! (1 more day)

This Thursday I am taking off to the Florida Keys! I just wish I could already be there. Ahh...this is going to be such a much needed little get away. It's probably not the best time to go away since there's a million things I've got to do, but it's been planned for some time and sometimes you gotta put everything on hold. I think we worry too much about the tiniest little things and we forget to just relax and get away from the world for a few days. That's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm a pretty laidback person but I feel like in the past two years I've become super organized women.(SOW? lol) Or something like that. I think I'll blame my ocd. I've got to have everything in order and I have to have everything done before deadline. Or else, I worry. I worry, worry, worry, stress, stress, stres. It's a never ending cyce!
I'm just getting anxious thinking about it........ sigh.

Here's what I'm going to do in Florida:
sleep. EAT (seafood yum:)) read (non-text books) tan. shop. run. swim.listen to bob marley. (repeat).
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. :))

In other Maggie news:
Remember my ipod that died? CAME BACK TO LIFE!!! I was about to buy another one off of amazon until I gave good ol' purple ipod one more try! Hooked it up to the computer and walah! It worked again, came back from the dead! Learned that you must never give up, on your ipod!

Lots of love.

windy wednesdayyyy

I'm not sure where everyone else is located, but where I'm located it's freeeeeeeeeeezinggggggg. :S I wimpered everytime I stepped outside.  Since it was warmer (like 50 degrees, HEAT UP!) yesterday I decided to go on a nice run in town. After about twenty minutes of running, rain began to pour. I'm not talking about a sprinkle, It felt like the drops were as big as my HAND! I'm exaggerating. my millionth ipod is broke. I tried drying it with a blow dryer..but that technique didn't work so well. If I can keep an ipod for over a year, then I'm having a REALLY good year. I accidentally lose them or they get stolen...or in this case they get fried.

R.I.P. Nano. We had great times together. You were always there with me. Whether it was on our way to class, the gym or just those down times where I wanted to relax. Now you are gone and I miss you very much. You always kept me entertained and now I feel so lost without you. I am sorry I didn't treat you like I should have..I know you wanted that protective cover but at the time I didn't think it was so necessary. So I'm sorry. I know you would like it if I moved on, so that's what I will do. I'm already thinking about purchasing the itouch. bye, bye nano. You will always have a place in my heart. :(
(ps- I'm still going to put all my effort into making you come back to life. I won't give up on you!!)

In other news. I took a yogalites (?) class today. I didn't really see the difference between that and a regular yoga class..but I still accomplished an amazing task! There is a pose where you have to balance on your hands and pull your feet right up...okay I can't explain it..

There it is! This is what I did!!! I've been trying to do this for ages but today me and a friend got it!!! Of course... I didn't raise my self off the ground as much as the lady above but hey, I still did it!
I thought I would share it with everyone... :)

hope everyone is having a lovely day.

lots of love,,

the first!

February is here! Hurrah! School has been kicking my butt lately. Papers, test, essays every where I turnnnnn. That's alright though. I'll take the ten year undergraduate plan, college is great! :) Also... next Thursday I will be on my way to Florida....I wish I was there now. The weather has been so droopy and isn't so cold though. Warm enough to go run! Anyone who is part of a gym that offers spinning class, I recommend it! But be prepared, those classes will kick your ass. I thought I was going to die after the first ten minutes- it's a fifty minute class! Ha!

Also. Time to get deep. I learned alot about myself and other people in the last week. I realized that sometimes you gotta go own your own. You've got to look inside and know what is best for you. In the past, I've made alot of choices regarding what other people want of me. So today is a new day. It's February first and it's time for a change!

In the mean time I'll dream about the KEYS!!! :))

happy tuesday everyone.

lots of love,,,

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! :) I'm looking forward to tomorrow though! Thursday means it's almost Friday! I'm feeling so sore today though...last night I went to a yoga class and realized how (non) flexible I really am. I consider myself to be pretty atheletic, but I was amazed to see some people really stretch OUT! I always have a difficult time concentrating in those classes the first thirty minutes though. I can't hardly take the instructor serious (even though, I really need to). I hear "breathe through your soul and let all your worries vanish awayyyy, just let go." Which at first I am like "whhattttt?" and then I try to concentrate on what the instructor is saying. Millions of thoughts run through my head in thirty seconds like, "How do I even begin to breathe through my soul? Is the person beside me breathing through her soul? This stretch is really killing my back.How is this girl doing this?? I shouldn't of had that cookie today. Okay, breathing through the soul...Have I finished that one assignment yet? BREATH THROUGH THE SOUL MAGGS!!"
All in thirty seconds. But after about 30 minutes I really get the hang of yoga and I love it! One day I hope I can stretch like this............

But...for the mean time you'll probably see me stretching like this instead....

haha, happy wednesday everyone :))

lots of love,,

tea tuesday

I'm not much for coffee, so when I go into our Starbucks on campus I never know what to get... I'm always so tempted to get one of those yummy frappuccinos........but I try to avoid them since they're so freaking unhealthy. However, I've grown to like tea in the past year so I thought I'd try their tea. I ordered the Vanilla Rooibos Brewed Tea...sounds so fancy! It was pretty good though. I think from now on every Tuesday I will have that tea! Or...try different types.

So much for my 410 calorie double chocolaty chip frappuccino...

Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino® Blended Crème

How delicious does that look!

I also have a weakness for Dairy Queen's moolates. They are sooooo delicious. mmm.. getting hungry now.

lots of love.

mighty monday

AHHHHHHH! This day has been too crazy. Remember I said I was nervous about my student teaching? Yeah, well I wrote out the wrong kind of lesson plan! This is a physical education class and the unit is over basketball.....and I thought the teacher told me soccer last week. But... I still got to carry on with my teach so it was okay haha. That would only happen to me. 

In other news... I met with my advisor today about study abroad! She signed off a paper and right after I write this post I've got to find two dollars to fax this sucker!! In two weeks I'll know if I'm accepted or not into the program!! HURRAH! I feel like now though I've been stressing about it so much-that my excitement has kind of died. But...I blame that for the weekend I had. Also, I always tend to get my hopes up about things and then something doesn't follow through and my dream has died. I'm just afraid that some of the coursework won't transfer back to where I'm at now...we'll see I guess...MUST STAY POSITIVE! 

Also, my computer charger still isn't working now so working on nice, fancy Apple computer in the computer center. Need one of these. 

lots of love!

lazy sundayyy

Hurrah! I'm finally able to post today! My computer charger isn't working so I'm borrowing one in the mean time..

For the past four hours all I have been working on is homework. I'm so proud of myself though this semester, I'm trying my best not to be a procrastinator! However, I have my first real student teaching tomorrow! I'm so nervous! I wouldn't say it's a "real" student teaching session because I'm teaching my own class for fifteen minutes with drills for dribbling a soccer ball. It can't be too bad, right? Ha

Next weekend I had planned to go to the Florida Keys. plans were shattered for other reasons. However, I planned another weekend and am hoping that works out! I don't know how everyone else feels, but this weather is driving me crazy. I'm ready for spring time. I wonder how many times I say that in a day. It's not too far away...January is almost over??? Where does the time go. Hopefully I only have to wait two more weeks until I can go to paradise..........

hopefully :)

In other news, I just heard U2 is coming to America for their 360 concert over the summer! I'm DYING to see them (and maybe the only person my age to think so) and they are coming close to where I'm at! I already looked up the tickets but I think they may be sold out. I'll still try my best to get those tickets!!!!! :))

hope all is well with everyone. lots of love.

three years from now and three years ago

This week has been a hectic week. I'm not really sure why I've been so stressed this week, I've had no tests (in fact I got to play basketball in one of my classes today- how schweeet is that??) maybe it's just this dull weather. I do get stressed but not as much as I used to be. Okay. Maybe that's a lie. I was thinking back to three years ago to when I was a junior in high school. My coach once told me, "Maggs, honey you've got to slow down and enjoy life you're acting like a 35 year old women worrying about all these things." Though, at that time I thought my whole life was going to be ruined if I didn't make the right choice about where I was going to attend college. If I could go back three years ago to this day and tell my 17 year old self where I am today-well the 17 year old would have laughed. I would have never thought that I would attend UofL( go cards) during orientation and immediately decide it wasn't for me and instead, reroute myself all the way to Lindsey Wilson College to play soccer. I would of also never thought that I would of have the most awesome experience I had at Lindsey. Would I have thought that an injury and other things lead me to EKU? NEVER in a million years!! But you know what, I like it. In fact, I love change. Life has taught me to embrace the unexpected and to take chances.

good times with the Lindsey team :)
So here's to wherever you and I will end up in the next three years. God only knows-really.

lots of love

I eat a lot of chicken. And lately, I've been eating alot of grilled chicken. Now everytime I eat breaded chicken I can't do it. Grilled chicken wraps are my mix sonnnn. Anyways, what I'm trying to say here is I hardly eat beef. Maybe I watched too many Chic-fila commercials and felt sorry for the poor cows and unconsciously started eating alot of chicken. I don't know, but I do know that today I was craving a Mcydee's juicy hamburger. I couldn't remember the last time I had a hamburger from Mcdonalds, it's probably been about ten years. No joke. It's always chicken. I wanted the ultimate today. I was so hungry and threw all my nutrition intuition (rhymes) out the door. 

So I decided upon the quarter pounder meal, you know the drill- large order of fries, burger and soda. I sat down so proud of myself. I started to dig into my fires and then ...the burger. It was ultimate self destruction. One bite into it...oh not so bad pretty good. Two bites...I can do this.. Three bites...ok put it down. I put my burger down and just starred. I couldn't help but look at all that grease and all that beef and all that cheese. I couldn't be a wiss, so I took the third bite, and thoughts like (PUKE!!!!) were going through my head. I had to chew slowly so I wouldn't have to run to the bathroom. It was horrible. After my third bite I knew I had lost my battle to food. Or Mcdonald's burger.

I think I'll stick to chicken.

TGFMLKD!!!!! (Sort of like the TGIF)..which translates as =thank God for martin luther (jr) king day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahh it's so nice to have the day off tomorrow! hurrah for no school! And only have two classes on Tuesday! more hurrahs!

Went to go see Black Swan yesterday..................advise not to see it! I was really looking forward to seeing it but it wasn't anything like I expected. I mean, yeah I thought it was going to be sort of weird but not that weird. You know those movies that are too much in a weird way-well that was Black Swan. It was the kind of weird like Fight Club. But nothing like Fight Club. Oh! That makes so much sensy sense. I also hated Fight Club. Except I have a crush on  the main guy (not Brad Pitt) ...I forget his him Mr.hotty. Ok, his name is Edward Norton...I had to look him up.

In other news, HURRAH just checked my application checklist and my photos and transcript came through to the program! I only have two more things to do! And...that requires the help of my advisor.......which may take a while.

I have to get my laundry out of the dryer now. I think it's done.

lol could also mean my sign off =lots of love
no.. that's so lame.

gettin' lucky in ky

I knew I should have started purchasing those lottery tickets. DAMNIT!!! A lady from kentucky just won it, that means that's a chance for me!!!

But...I'm still happy for her. I really liked the story about the golden voice guy too. God has blessed them so much.

I'm tired of the cold. Ready for spring to come very soon. The winter after Christmas just isn't worth it. Two more years baby and hopefully I'll be at the coast waving adios to the cold. Actually, it won't be real warm in South Carolina during winter..but it's better than where I'm at.

Been working real hard on deciding where I want to study next year! I'm just praying and crossing my fingers everyday that I get into this program and that my credits will transfer. The school I was looking at didn't have my major offered but I found another one that sounds perfect in Ireland. I don't want to get my hopes up but I have faith I'll get this!!

lots of love.

back to kewledge

So today marked the first day back to college! It's so nice being back. I pretty much love all my classes (okay there's one I really despise) but for the most part it's good. I went from 8am to 1pm today and was more concerned about how I was going to survive until lunch then getting up early. Ha.

Though, I'm pretty bummed today. It may be I won't be able to study abroad for the whole year (next year) because some of the classes won't be able to transfer to my major. But I guess we will see, I just hate it how I have to wait to know, I want things done presto presto!!! Sigh, I kind of thought I would get a definite answer today..oh well.


and no that's what she said jokes. because I don't like jokes today. or..for this minute.

Saturday, January 8, 2011


Watched the Bachelor for the first time in years tonight (1) because nothing was on (2) because there's not much to do in this small town (3) okay it wasn't so bad. But I had to turn it off after the first hour. I think my brain has went to mush. Still haven't bought the lottery ticket..working on it people, gotta give you all a chance too you know.
felt a need to tell you my personal thoughts that you care nothing about
all for now. lots of love

loto moneyy

Second post in one day? Is this real life right now? Feeling this incredible need to write today!!!! I think I'm going to go to speedway in a few minutes to buy a lotto ticket. Just read an article about a man from Washington about to claim $90 million lump sum after taxes. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...dgeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Today I went to exchange a blu-ray disc for a regular DVD and received five bucks back. I was so excited about the five bucks and immediately started thinking of all the places I could eat lunch at. I can't imagine being handed $90 million bucks.  But I think my favorite thing about this article was the comments below. People get so intense and emotional about it and then they start fighting online with each other. About a man who won the lotto? Be happy for the guy, damn. I'm thrilled for the guy and I don't even know his name.  Keep it classy world.

all for now. lots of love,

mac and cheese

I realized yesterday that I really cannot cook. Took out the mac and cheese box and decided to make my own for the first time. Keep in mind that everything I "cook" is usually in the microwave. I call that cooking. Haha. Anyways, so I thought how hard can mac and cheese be? Yeah disaster. How do you screw up mac and cheese? Anyways, I followed pretty much every direction. It said to boil six glasses of water, which my pot was pretty small so I couldn't quite fit six glasses of water so I kind of had to limit it to 4. Which even then the water was filled at the very top...which I was thinking the whole time that this wasn't going to go well. Anyways right as I turned my back all the water began to boil over the pot or pan whatever and all of this smoke came up and I was trying to think of unique ideas of what to do when the fire detector went off. I finally got everything together but the finished product wasn't so delicious. It was so cheesy and I don't think the noodles were cooked all the way......but I ate all of it. The point of the story is, for all my men wanting to marry me (there is so many you know? ) you should probably cook. I always thought that watching Emeril and that Italian girl would pay off.....not exactly.

In other news... I'm so tired of the cold weather...I'm ready for summerrrr timeee!!! I want to be able to wear shorts and a tshirt outside again. I've decided that after I graduate that I'll probably move to the coast somewhere. Preferably South sounds nice. On my bucket list is to learn how to surf and you can't really learn how to surf on one vacation, can you? So that's why I'll have to live there. Oh and I'm going to have a hammock in my  backyard and it's going to be so schweett.

I've been listening to 311's "Amber" continuously. My brother has been hearing it everyday since Christmas. Hahaha. I like it. It's so summer time, feel good.

lots of love
