Netflix Obsession

So I am guessing most of you can relate to me when I tell you about my Netflix obsession. My first favorite series was Weeds (which I finished in a week), then Prison Break, and now Scandal. I just started Scandal a week ago and I am already on the second season. This is not really a good thing because I want to fill all my free time up with Netflix rather than homework…

Anyway, I highly encourage you all to check out Scandal if you’re looking for a new Netflix series to watch. If you like thrillers…here is the trailer!

 

 

Karma

“Once you’ve lived a little you will find that whatever you send out into the world comes back to you in one way or another. It may be today, tomorrow, or years from now, but it happens; usually when you least expect it, usually in a form that’s pretty different from the original. Those coincidental moments that change your life seem random at the time but I don’t think they are. At least that’s how it’s worked out in my life. And I know I’m not the only one.”

Something really neat happened to me this week. I think that I may have had some good Karma coming to me.  A passed over a blog about Karma a minute ago and it inspired me to write about my experience.

 

On Monday morning I was at Starbucks and had to wait in line for about ten minutes. When I got to the window  I was told that the person in front of me decided to pay for my drink and sandwich.

Why would they do that?

The employee informed me that the guy was having a good day and decided to show a random act of kindness.

 

My response to him was “I promise to pay it forward.” Next time I go to Starbuck’s, I definitely plan on doing the same.

When I called my sister and the first thing she said to me was “That’s good Karma, don’t forget to pay it forward.”

This put me in a good mood for the rest of the day because it reminded me that I obviously did something good for someone in order for that to happen to me.

 

Then I remembered; a couple weeks ago I went to breakfast at George’s which is a cute little breakfast restaurant down the street from campus. When I went to pay, I saw my waitress running out the door trying to catch some people that dined and dashed.

Confused on how someone can actually be okay with doing that to someone, I decided to pay for it. The waitress had no idea that I did that, but no one deserves to be ripped off. 

 

 

KI am one of those people that could never steal anything because if I did I would only think about what would happen to me for doing that. If you do good things, good things will be done to you.

 

Most people think of karma is terms of “what goes around comes around,” usually referring to someone that deserves some bad karma.  Karma can be both good and bad, but it’s honestly up to you. 

Spring Break

First off let me say that thirteen hours with four girls can really show a lot about a friendship..

As I said in my last blog, my best friends and I drove down to New Orleans for Spring Break….and it was the best week of my life!

I have only know these girls since school started, and after this trip I can finally say that I have true friends.

This spring break showed me so much about my friendship with all three of these girls, and I know that I will have them for life. We made so many great memories and got to know each other a lot better. Mostly we gained about ten pounds due to the amount of food my family supplied us (they’re Italian and you HAVE to eat). We all ate a lot of pasta and a lot of seafood. Which is soooooo much better in New Orleans!

Our drive down there was 13 hours, and we all had so much fun dancing and singing while listening to old throw back songs. We all took turns driving when we all got tired, but mostly we were just excited to get there! When we got there my cousin Peter Michael took us out to the city of New Orleans, which was a blast The best day was definitely the parade on Saturday. They LOVE St. Patrick’s day! We saw a lot of very interesting people there!  We also did a lot of shopping while we were there…but I still don’t regret it even though I’m poor now. Today has been a STRUGGLE trying to get back in the grove of things, but this trip was worth it!

Hope you all had a great Spring Break!!

Today Is A Great Day

I AM SORRY IF YOU ARE READING THIS AMBER, BUT I AM REALLY HAPPY CLASS GOT CANCELLED TODAY 🙂 I now have completed all my homework so I can have a stress-free vacation from school over break. 

 I am so ready for Spring Break!  Although I feel like this semester flew by faster than ever, I am ready for a vacation. On Friday, three friends and I are driving down to New Orleans to spend our Spring Break down there.  I have family that lives down there, so we will be staying with them. My family is on the beach right now in Puerto Rico, and their phones calls are making me more and more anxious to take my vacation! This is a little weird though, because every year I have spent my Spring Break with my family, but since it is my first year of college I decided that I would go with my friends. I am missing out on the beach, but I am stoked for New Orleans! It is a fourteen-hour drive, so we plan on making an overnight stop in Cape Girardeau where my friend Kelsea lives. Hopefully we make it in to New Orleans by Saturday evening. I plan on blogging about my trip on drive back because I know I will be bored in the car. 

 

Well I hope everyone’s plans for Spring Break are as exciting as mine

 

Have a good and safe Spring Break! Can’t wait to tell you about my trip.

 

See ya soon,

Season Change

Do you ever stop and think about what it would be like if the seasons didn’t change? Some say that they would be much happier living in a warm place year around.

 

Last week when my friend and I were coming in from the outside which was snowy and cold, we were talking about what it would be like if we didn’t have a season change.

I was complaining about the cold when my friend said to me, “if we didn’t have days like today that are cold and snowy, we wouldn’t appreciate the nice days as much.”

This got me to thinking what it would be like to live in a place like California were it was warm all around. Sure there would be nothing to complain about, but do you think they appreciate nice days as much as we do?

For me, by the time winter is over, I am ready for summer. By the time summer is over, I’m ready to get out my winter boots and such.

I know that most people will say I’m crazy for liking snow, but I honestly don’t feel like I would ever be able to live in a place that didn’t have a season change. I feel that it makes me appreciate the nice days a lot more. What can I say, I love the Midwest!

 

On the bright side, Spring Break is a week away 🙂

 

Well that sums up my thoughts for the evening. Have a good week guys.
