thoughts on this cinco de mayo!

Hello, we are awesome.
Happy Cinco de Mayo lovies!
Us Advertising gals at the Art Institute of Awesomeness and Other Such Things threw together a little Cinco de Mayo potluck shindig!

Amy, our hostess went all out and did such a great job of decorating her apartment for the festivities, and even provided party favors for all of us.
Touche Amy!

here's what's been brewing in my mind lately:

Sometimes when I don't want to do my hair and it looks a mess (like it's meant to look this way), I some how convince myself that if I only dress cuter that my whole ensemble will counterbalance itself.
Is this okay? Or just lazy? Both?

Silence honestly freaks me out, can't fall asleep, can't do homework, can't read. 
I think this might be a problem.

Don't you hate it when you go somewhere and you feel like everyone is staring at you?
Why are you looking at me?
Then I get this complex that I'm running around with something stuck in my teeth or have toilet paper streaming from my heels without me knowing.
Oh gosh please let it not be that.

So I drove out of a parking lot the other day and saw dead duck that was ran over by a car, worst part was when I was attempting to not drive over him myself, I saw his little webbed foot waving straight up and high in the air.
Making me think he might have been telling the car that ran him over to stop.
Poor Donald.

Sometimes I question my thought process.
I end up in the weirdest places, and the worst part is when I say them out loud.
I am hoping this a normal trait.

Lately, a lot actually, I have been really envious of peoples' lives.
And it kind of makes me upset.
I tend to dwell and dwell on the fact that I'm not living a life like theirs, blah blah blah. woe is me.
But I think I need to realize that maybe someone out there is envious of the life I live?
Even if they don't, I need to embrace and love the life I'm living and stop trying to live through others.


  1. Your hair is fantastic in that photo. I love it!

    And yes, you have quite an awesome life! California? Perfect weather? Beach within driving distance at all times? Advertising Institute of Awesomeness? And you work at the Happiest Place on Earth, which I'm sure doesn't seem that glamorous to you but I think it is pretty awesome. You have the most hilarious stories and I bet it is always entertaining to be in Disneyland every day. So in conclusion, I love your life and I hope you do to.

  2. i totally try and do my makeup cuter if my hair is poop. usually doesn't make it look better.... made me laugh to read this post! (poor duck)

  3. well just think, while your sitting there being envious of other peoples lives someone could be sitting there being envious of yours.

    BTW man i am a hottie. how do i NOT have a boyfriend?

  4. Lauren, I am envious of your life. You are almost done with school and you live in California, and your HOT
