Words of Wisdom!

Today, I received a surprise graduation card that I was not expecting. It meant so much to me because it was from a friend of our family's that I have always admired. Enclosed was this great piece of advice that I thought I would share:

"Always remember who you are and be true to yourself. One day life will ask you who you are and if you don't know, then it will tell you."

Have a great night!

Where in the world is... ELH?!

I feel so bad for neglecting my poor little blog these past few weeks. I was on such a roll! But with exams, a whole long list of "lasts", cleaning 4 years of miscellaneous "treasures" out of my apartment and loving on my best buddies, there has just been no time for blogging (or eating, sleeping, or making money!). Rest assured that ideas have been racking up in my mind and SO many exciting events have happened while I've been away (Hint: NYC, Formal, a super fun horse race... ETC!). Bear with me and my sweet little bloggy as I live up these last few DAYS!

"All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them"- Walt Disney

My next chapter finally has a title:

Disney Fairytale Weddings Marketing and Social Media Intern!

I got the call this morning and absolutely couldn't believe it! They said that I was chosen out of hundreds of people-- dreams really do come true :) (I've been on a Disney kick all day!)

Though I'm a little nervous and a little scared to go so far away all alone, I know that in the end it will be so worth it! It's just another adventure out there waiting for me!


I live for entertainment, my darling

I always get so nervous when my favorite books are turned into movies. It's one of those things that makes me clench my teeth and peep through my fingers as they're covering my eyes. But sometimes Hollywood gets it right (not to mention those times when the movie is better than the book! Gasp, did she just go there? Oh, yes, I did).

Now one thing that's not okay is if a certain idiot boy takes you on a date to see the last Harry Potter movie and complains when I bring up the book saying "I hate when books are based on movies". Um. Hokay. Byebye.

Here are a few of my faves coming up soon!

Water for Elephants

Something Borrowed

The Help

and then some of my all time faves:

The Notebook

The Secret Life of Bees

He's Just Not That Into You

Let's Run Away Forever, Let's Spend Some Time Together

We'll never feel bad anymoreeeeee- Oh Weezer, your peppy tunes keep me afloat :)

So, after much inspiration from my friends and of course great advice from Miss Christine at Bun and Borough, I have strapped on the old running shoes. I typically am one to run only if I am being chased, but for some reason I have been really inspired recently! Here are some things keeping me motivated:

1. Accountability. A lot of my friends and I have been keeping track of each others fitness and that has been working so well for me. Though I can't necessarily run or work out with anyone else, seeing "WWJD (What Would Jillian Michaels Do?)" right on the fridge really keeps things in perspective.

2. A rockin' soundtrack. Fun, fast paced grooves keep me wanting to move and also help with my timing and pacing. I am trying to roughly follow the Couch to 5K program, and each song is around 2 minutes-- purrrrfect. Plus, who can sit still when you hear this: We are young. Heartache to heartache, we stand. No promises, no demands. LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD!". Uhh, didn't think so.

3. Spectators. Usually, beeping from a car is not a positive thing in my book. However, when I'm in the zone, hear a honk and look up to be greeted with a big smile and a thumbs up, it makes my swagger that much more fierce.

4. Nature. The weather has been exceptional recently (besides the ridiculous amount of pollen...!) and it means so much to me to get to hang out outside and get my run on. I am also appreciating my gorgeous city and campus as much as I can before I head out! Fresh air does a multitude of things for the ol' body and, like, how cute is it when you see a bunny, a deer or a sweet little bird chillin' by your path? I felt like freaking Cinderella!

5. Timing is everything. In these last 2 weeks of school, I am jam packing school work, hanging with friends and tying up loose ends. It's HARD to make time for exercise, especially a one hour class where you have to get yourself together at a specific time and just... ack. A run can be short, long, in the morning, in the evening, and it can also get me from point A to point B!
