That's Dr Pepper. Not beer. I'm not drinking beer at 1 pm on a Thursday.

I spy kitty paws. That’s Dr Pepper. Not beer. I’m not drinking beer at 1 pm on a Thursday.

Stealing this from Allie & Holly because my original blog post for today just didn’t really pan out. It happens.

Thinking: Atlanta is just so loud. There is always a truck backing up and there’s construction going on across the street but they’re also preparing for a wedding for tomorrow over there and there are too many things going on and I need to move to the country.

Wearing: Yoga pants and a tank top. I’m not trying super hard today. I didn’t even dry my hair.

Watching: The Americans. Season 1 was so much better than this season. Is it going to get better or is it going to flop?

Wanting: Tuesday to get here so I can use my Whitney English day designer. Yeah, it starts on Tuesday. I still need to write down my goals!

Liking: My new iPhone. I finally made the switch from android and while it’s pretty different, it’s not that hard to adjust these days. The only app that I have to do without is series guide, but I’m using iTV Shows, and it’s a pretty decent alternative.

Loving: My nieces. Finley’s got so much personality and Piper’s still in the baby stage, so when she’s not crying she’s just warm and smells like a baby. I know, I’ve come a long way. I’m still terrified of babies, but it’s getting better. I would even be okay with Candence getting pregnant again just so I could be surrounded my kids, but I don’t think she’d go for it.

Testing: Myself to see just how much I can get done today. I’ve slacked a little the last few days, so I feel like I need to make up for it.

Laughing: Tim just sent me this because he wants to know what I want to eat.

What Kind of Vampire Would You Be?

It’s pretty obvious that in the past few years, Vampires have been kind of… trendy. I mean, not acting like one (although, some people are into that). But movies, TV, books… Thanks, Twilight. Of course, Buffy was ahead of the curve on this. But with all the different kinds of vampires that show up, sometimes I wonder which one I’m most like. Not a lot. But you know, today.

What kind of vampire you are totally depends on what “universe” you’re in. If you’re in the Buffy/Angel universe, you hang around high schoolers, get a squishy face when you’re ready to chow down, and you might be a British rock star. Maybe.

That looks like it hurts.

That looks like it hurts.

If you’re in the Being Human universe, your eyes turn black and you probably despise yourself. But don’t worry, your bff ghost and werewolf will help you through your self-loathing stage. Side note: I’m bummed that it’s over.

In the Twilight universe, you obviously sparkle, pretend your lovers are your siblings, and you have  weird car obsession. Seriously, what is with them and the cars?

I saw that Helene used PlayBuzz to make quizzes and I thought it’d be perfect to use for this. So, what kind of vampire would you be?

Advice to my 20-year-old Self

I’m really happy where I am today. But quite frankly, I am just freaking lucky that I got here. I feel like I’ve experienced quite a lot, good and bad, in the last 7 years. And I’m convinced that the hardest times have shaped me the most. Nothing will change your perspective on life like almost not having it. But still, in my early twenties, I was clueless. I was dumb. I had no idea what to do. And I could have used a bit of advice, even if I refused to listen to it.


Say “yes” more. Except when you should so obviously say no. Go hang out with those friends. Help someone out. It will be better than sitting on the couch watching Netflix all day, I promise.

Take chances. It might seem like a gamble, but just try. You might regret not trying later.

Don’t settle. Go for what you want — if it’s not quite what you want, move on and get something better.

Put in effort. In your friendships, relationships, and bettering yourself. Friends aren’t just going to walk into your life and stick around. You have to work at it, especially when you don’t always agree.

Prepare for the future. This seems like a really obvious thing, but when you’re 20, you don’t think about how your daily choices might impact you in 5 years.

Worry about yourself. I’d say this is one of the biggest ways I’ve changed in the last few years. Not going to talk about politics, but I used to be seriously bothered by what other people chose for their life. Not anymore. You do your thing, and don’t worry about mine.

Set goals. It took me awhile to realize that setting goals and accomplishing them would make me feel more fulfilled. Even if you just set a few daily goals, and write them down, you’ll feel like your day wasn’t wasted when you mark them off. Now, I set daily and monthly goals. My new Whitney English planner is perfect for this. Enter below to win one of your own!
