stay foolish, stay hungry

Quote of the Day: "Opportunity does not knock, then knock again, and then leave a note saying, 'sorry I missed you'." -That 70's show.  

Well, I'm not sure that what I have done the past week is really worthy to blog about so I will try to spice things up! To sum up my week so far I have slept (alot!), visited Dede (my grandmother), spent time with a few friends who are home, been to the gym, rode my bike on the canal and watched lots and lots of movies! It may also be worthy to mention that I have attempted some homework. On top of all these crazy things I've done, I managed to find time to shop around online, find new music, and discover some great quotes...

                                      I added this song to my "chill" playlist

On Saturday I decided to make my famous cupcakes (by famous I mean I made them once before over Christmas break but they seemed to be a hit!) I stuck to the original vanilla cupcake, but I was told by both my cousin and my mom that I could never be a housewife until I perfected my frosting skills!

(my cousin, Lindsay, with my beautiful cupcakes!)

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do. And that enables you to laugh at life's realities."-Dr. Suess

 Sunday was yucky and rainy so I decided to have a pixar movie marathon! Although the marathon only consisted of two movies (Monsters, INC and Finding Nemo) because by the end of the second one I was ready for a nap!

Found the perfect white dress for initiation!

I stumbled upon these Tory Burch flats 65% off the original price!

One thing that I wish I had made time for was going to the barn to ride. Horseback riding is a passion of mine and although I don't get to ride as often as I would like it is still a big part of my life. Just a year ago I was in the middle of show season when I finally achieved my goal of earning Grand Champion at a show. I miss my pony Joey and I know that if I were lucky enough to still be showing with him, he would have won us Grand Champion a long time ago!

A few words from Steve Job's commencement address at Standford University (2005):

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
