Reading does the body good

Well hello beautiful. Today has been such a phenomenal day. Nothing really eventful happened but if felt good to be back on campus, seeing all my pretty duckies. People have been complaining about the upcoming week already but I think saying how horrible it is aloud is another way of forcefully believing a horrific outcome. So to all those sad duckies worrying about the "impending doom" of this week...

put on a happy face because life is beautiful.

Anywho, today I had a meeting with Professor Voldemort and to my surprise he was such a doll.

We planned out the rest of my college career, seeing if I had enough credits to fulfill my double-major (in Rhetoric & Professional Writing) or let it rest as a minor. I need to take four more classes (2 during each upcoming semesters) if I wanted to fulfill the RPW major. Mind you, I still need to fulfill my other major (English, Creative Writing emphasis). (Take the survey above to help me out duckies!)

In other news, I've realized that I love my life even more when I read books (for leisure) and I recently picked up the habit again. I'm currently reading...

and it's so good. The first two sentences reeled me in and I'm eating it up. It's about this English columnist's retelling his sexual experiences...but get this. His job as a columnist is for a sex site and he is always assigned a multitude of bizarre sex adventures. It's so good. Go and buy a copy now!

Speaking of adventure, one of my people-friends Alyssa just landed a consultant job in Texas!

She'll get to travel the U.S., all jetsetter like, and her job entails (basically) being fabulous, creative and efficient. She'll have no problem at all. I love you Alyssa. I'm so excited for you!

On the topic of being excited, I was relaxing in the main student lounge on campus and a friend approached me. Midway through of conversation he (his name is Aiden) pulls out his phone, but not just any phone. He pulls out his new BlackBerry Storm!

And OMG, he even has the same chromed out case as me! I asked if he had BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) and he said yes. I'm glad he did because having a BlackBerry without BBM is like having a car without tires.

Okay duckies, it's time for some "Words of Wisdom."

"Sometimes life is too busy is keep track of all the goals we want to achieve. As a solution, make a master list of goals you'd like to achieve and place the list where you will see it everyday. Have a mission statement at the top of when you'd like to achieve these goals. Envision yourself with the goals you've proposed and before you know it...your goals will become a reality. Believe in yourself duckies!"
(Here's a pic of my "Life Contract" for 2009.)

Eddie: I saw you today at the Nest and after I was coming back from the library. I want you to know that I appreciate you and I thank you for taking time to read my blog. I thoroughly enjoyed our outrageous conversation in the foyer of Eagle Hall. I love you fam!

Limp Biscuit: You know who you are. I am sooooooo glad that you are well. I was shocked to hear about your ski accident and I'm glad you're still divine. I can't express how much I loved our conversation on the phone last night. Thank you for being you.

Duckies, it's been a long day and tomorrow is going to be even more attractive. I wish you the best of happiness. Stay true.

Peace, love & Obama,
