If you couldn't tell my exercise routine stopped when I started school this past semester. I'm proud to say that I'm back on my exercise program and I'm already feeling much better. I've been walking every morning despite not wanting to wake up at 5:45 a.m. and swimming a few days a week. With bathing suit season just around the corner, I'm working extra hard. In high school, I loved starting my summer vacation with a viewing of Blue Crush. Bleached hair, bare feet, hitting the pool and day trips to beach were what I lived for. What's your favorite beach movie?

Of course it's my last week of class (one more presentation!!!!) and I want to celebrate in the biggest way. Instead I have an insanely packed weekend of work related projects and events to tend too. We'll catch up next week, hopefully by then a few things will start to slow down. I'm exhausted just thinking about everything that needs to get done. Have a fantastic weekend and see you next Monday :)

 I thought everything would begin to slow down when I got the final word about school but other areas of my life seem to be hectic to say the least. I'm crossing my fingers that life will start to slow down soon. The other night while I was trying to fall asleep I created a playlist of all my favorite R&B jams, these are just a few that have been on repeat lately. What are you listening too? What is your favorite R&B song or artist?

Happy Friday readers, my weekend is full of last minute assignments for my last class ever, a quick trip and preparing for this year's summer reading program. Despite school being practically over, my plate is full and life is a bit hectic these days but more on that later. With an Olympic theme for the this year's summer program, I am more than ecstatic to start talking about all the activities we will be doing and sharing over the summer months. Without giving away too much away just imagine 90s style Teen Game Shows and whip cream!!! Have an excellent weekend and see you all next week :)

A month long retreat is pretty much the only thing on my mind at the moment. Being relaxed, a drink or two or three, being in the sun, hitting the pool and beach and being outdoors is all I want and skirts, I'm really into skirts right now. Happy Weekend!!!

Are you ready for the most excellent news - you never have to hear me rant or complain about grad school ever again because I passed my thesis and will be graduating in a month. Oh, I cannot wait!!! I'll be traveling up to San Francisco in a month to finally step foot on the campus where I have been studying at San Jose State and visit with my brother and his wife. I'm looking forward to a nice vacation with my family, touring the city, celebrating and not have to think I should be home reading for a class assignment or finishing a paper. For the last eight years I have not been able to escape that feeling and now my future is wide open. So many possibilities and opportunities are in the near future and I'm excited to see where they take me. Until then, I will still be here, writing away and discussing life after school. Stay tuned and I will be back next week. Regular posting will be back soon :)

I am finally finished with grad school and I cannot be more excited to start the next chapter of my life: life after school. The idea of not reading for a class or writing a paper with immense pressure will be an adjustment but a good one. Until then I'll be sleeping for the next few days to catch up on the last week of pacing around, laying in bed wondering and obsessively checking my school email. See you next week :) (1,2,3)

I've always had a fascination with studying cults, in fact my entire second semester in college my Anthropology course discussed and studied brainwashing, manipulation and belief systems,I loved every minute of it.  With the recent obsession of listening to The Black Tapes and Tanis over and over, I have been waiting to check out this show. Have you started watching it?! Thoughts, opinions?

Hello and Happy Friday peeps, the anticipation of being done with school has me at bursting level, any minute now and I'm going to start crying, joyful crying that is. I have one more week until this novel of a thesis is submitted and done forever. Until then I have to keep my cool. I'll be revising, editing and proofing my paper and then I'll be partying like it's 1999. I cannot wait to to be done and not have to think about school...at least for a while. Or wake up from nightmares in a panic trying to remember if I turned in an assignment or sent in that last document to the department regarding graduation, this actually happened two days ago! I got a response from administration yesterday confirming my status of graduating, whew!!! One more week, one more week with my advisor and then all will be wonderful :)

Hello readers, what have you been up too this week?! I'm finally getting positive feedback and even a little praise for showing my passion for librarianship, nothing but good news from my advisor, thank God!!! It made my Friday morning to hear Dr. C say I may be done before the end of April deadline, so I'm in a particularly excellent mood. However, I'm not quite done just a few more weeks of last minute edits and polishing. So here's to a few more weekends working my butt off and then party time.  So much champagne and celebrating and vacation time, oh I cannot wait. Have a good weekend and see you next week :)

To the artist who redesigned the covers of little golden books to pop culture, you're the best! Check out the link below to see Breaking Bad, Kill Bill, Assassin's Creed and other kind of creepy illustrations of pop culture icons. This illustrator is a genius!!!
