Young starving college kid.  Trying to find my way in the world. :)

Makes me happy: coming home and seeing my excited puppy (Trooper), taking long walks, trying a new recipe and having it turn out perfectly delicious, funny cat videos

Makes me sad: those dang ASPCA commercials, change, seeing dead animals on the side of the road

Hobbies: tennis,, cooking

Vices: martinis

This past Friday my world was turned upside down.  I was broken up with in the weirdest way possible, no joke.   My boyfriend and I were supposed to move into an apartment together. The day of the move came,  and I received a Facebook message from him saying "im sorry" (apparently I didn't even deserve an apostrophe).  After reading the message, I tried calling him to see what was up but, his phone was disconnected.  Fearing the worst I drove to his apartment, and it was completely empty.

Killing Your Feet for Fashion

Today I was asked why I never wear high heels.  The thought of those torture devices makes me wince.  When it comes to my foot wear I choose comfort over fashion.

My sister on the other hand is the complete opposite of me.  This is the girl who willing wears a  skirt and strappy sandals during the cold months of the year because she is all about appearance.  I love her to death but I won't be borrowing her shoes any time soon.

Cleanliness of Car = Personality?

A dirty, messy car reflects on you, just the same as your clothing does. Cleaning your car doesn't just keep it looking good, it helps keep it running better as well -- is this true?

My boyfriend isn't exactly what you would call organized.  When we first met his car was filled with tennis rackets and numerous balls.  He is a coach and there is no getting around it.
