Sun Filled and Fun Filled

Wow, it has been far too long since I got on my blog. The past month has been absolutely jam-packed with moving and work, and driving! I am officially back in California, which is amazing. I am loving being back at work at Tiny Prints, and spending time with my sister, brother-in-law, and nieces.  I finally saw Eclipse (the third movie in the Twilight saga) and I’ve officially decided it is the best movie of the saga so far, and I’m desperately hoping to see it again, because waiting for DVD will just be too hard.  What team are you on bloggers/readers? I’m personally a fan of team Emmett! Kellan Lutz is so pretty :)

I don’t have any photos to post at the moment, but they will be coming soon.  I’ve finally started that summer reading list (well I started last night) that I posted before, I’m about 1/3 of the way through Dear John, and I’m loving it.  It’s taken some serious mental effort to get the movie out of my head…always the problem with seeing the movie before reading the book!  Have you bloggers been reading this summer? Tell me what books your interested in,  in the comments, I’m always looking for good reads! (even if it does take me a  lifetime to get around to actually starting the book!)  I’m trying to think about what else has been going on since I last posted something on my blog…. Ooooh, I can’t believe I forgot! Spain won the World Cup! How exciting is that?  I didn’t stick to my resolution to watch every game, but I watched a few, and of course, the very last game.

Anyway, bloggers & readers, I hope you are having a fun summer, and getting out into the sun (safely, of course), and spending time with friends and family… preferably around a BBQ!


p.s. the photo is one of many to come from my trip to the San Francisco Zoo!


Nothing Comes Close to the Golden Coast…

Well Blogging World, it is official, only 9 more days until I head to California to start work at Tiny Prints again.  Well, lucky for me (and I am being serious) I get to make the 9 hour drive all by myself.  Now, this may seem crazy to any sane person, but let me tell you: I LOVE ROAD TRIPS! Of course, it is a lot of fun to go with other people, but after a stressful quarter of classes and the challenge of choosing a different college for next year, I could use 9 hours to just sit and zone (while watching my speedometer of course).  The only reason that this long drive is bearable, and in my mind, enjoyable, is that thanks to the joys of technology, I can make playlists (instead of mix cds or tapes) on my ipod.  Yes bloggers, I will admit, I am that crazy girl driving down the freeway screaming at the top of her lungs in her car (p.s. I suck at singing, so it is best when nobody else is in the car).  I am okay with this, its a great tension reliever!  So, despite the fact that I really should be studying for my last final of sophomore year (I have 13 hours left before the test), I am instead creating playlists of the best road trip songs. So far one song that must be on the playlist–and is the reason for the title of this post–is, “California Gurls” by Katy Perry because it is so incredibly appropriate—I am a California girl through and through, and I absolutely love this song because it reminds me of being home in the sunshine.  I also plan on including some songs by Journey, Taio Cruz, OneRepublic, Carrie Underwood, B.o.B., Glee, and Brad Paisley. My gauge of a successful road trip is how hoarse my voice is when I get to my destination.  As always, I would love to get feedback in the comments. What are your favorite ‘car songs’? Is there any one band/song/genre that you have to (or for that matter cannot) listen to when you are driving? Let me know :)


Here are some of my top picks for the drive (quite a few of them are oldies but goodies!):

Secrets by OneRepublic

Dynamite by Taio Cruz

Undo It by Carrie Underwood

Faithfully by Journey

United State of Pop 2009 (Blame it on the Pop) by DJ Earworm

Inconsolable by Backstreet Boys

It’s Amazing by Jem

Speeding Cars by Imogen Heap

Halo/Walking on Sunshine by Glee

Last Train Home by Ryan Star

California Gurls by Katy Perry

Waka Waka by Shakira

O…Saya by A. R. Rahman & M.I.A (from Slumdog Millionaire)

Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood

Callin’ on Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks

Will it never end?

So I’m doing homework (and have been for almost 5 hours already!) and I am sick and tired of it, so I decided to post a blog entry to see who else was avoiding homework right along with me (or avoiding anything you know you should be doing)! :D Yes, I really am that bad of a procrastinator (although I do always get my stuff done in the nick of time).  Thankfully, I finished my biology portfolio, but very unfortunately I have yet to read any of the assigned book we have for my history class (Murder in Amsterdam) or write the paper that goes along with it–due tomorrow by noon.  Have you read that book? Any insight? I think instead of starting I may do some laundry or go to the gym, maybe reorganize my closet… oh the possibilities of procrastination.  Amazing Race ended so I don’t even have a show to watch tonight to take me away from homework later. Grrr. Will the homework never end? Will summer ever come, I’m ready for the beach and sunshine (see photo)? Going to work is so much better, I get paid to do stuff… and I enjoy it a whole lot more!


Summer Reading

Hello Blog World,

It’s been too long since I posted something, and because tonight is a joyous occasion I thought, why not blog about it!  What’s tonight you may ask? Well my answer will completely make my age and status in life quite obvious.  My amazing news is that I finished my 7 page history paper that has been staring at me saying, “MEGAN YOU HAVE TO GET AN A, THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, WHY IS YOUR PAGE STILL BLANK?”  I know this not exciting for anyone else, but trust me it feels FANTASTIC!  The books that I used to write my paper were of course history books, but they were actually on my favorite history topic: World War 2.  I swear I’m not sadistic, I just cannot fathom the idea that, not all that long ago people like Hitler and Stalin were in control–it fascinates me.  If you are looking for a good history book (for whatever reason) I suggest checking out the ones I read: Everyday Stalinism by Sheila Fitzpatrick and Backing Hitler by Robert Gellately.  On the note of reading, this week I decided that I was in desperate need of some good reading material for the summer.  The picture above is what I plan on doing during my free time this summer: reading and listening to my iPod—the best combination in the world!  Don’t judge me on the books I picked (list below), I know they are primarily really girly, romantic fluffy stuff, but who needs dense reading during the summer especially when I do a TON of reading during the school year of stuff I hardly ever enjoy.  So bloggers, what is your favorite summertime activity? Leave comments below! :D

2 letters. 1 FANTASTIC weekend!

Hey Hey Hey!

So I had to share my amazing news, not only did I get my amazing internship back for the summer, but I also got into University of San Diego!  I’m so excited that both of these pieces of news came this weekend, what a fantastic way to end a relatively stressful week!  I don’t know for sure where I am going to be going to school next year, but I know that I will be in my all time favorite place…CALIFORNIA!! Well I have to wake up at 5:30 tomorrow morning to drive back to school, so I am off to bed.  Have a great Monday!

P.S. Check out how gorgeous USD is…I mean who wouldn’t want to go there?!

Summer, Part Deux!

Okay, so I’m not one to post a million things in one day, but my excitement requires another post.  I GOT MY SUMMER INTERNSHIP BACK!!! I’m so thrilled, I may scream! My internship is at Tiny Prints, the most amazing online stationery company–EVER (seriously, check it out)!  I work in merchandising along with some of the coolest, kindest, and most creative people in the world, and I am super-duper excited to go back for a second summer. (Some of their personalized stationery is below–I love writing letters on it, I feel like a real grown up!)
