Dear Santa Claus,

December 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

tis the season to be jolly, fa-la-la-la-la-LA-LA-LA-LA!

I know that everyone doesn’t believe that you truly exist, but they are obviously all of the whiney little brats that get lumps of coal in their stockings! So, it’s that time of year again, and I just thought I would drop you a little something letting you know what a good girl I have been this year :)

Starting with last January (since that is when this year of me being a good girl started) I got a C+/B average both winter and spring quarter at Cal Poly SLO, I went to see all (yes ALL) of my top favorite bands! Iration and Passafire at SLObrew for the Winter Blackout Tour, Pepper 3 times (twice on the Unity tour for Reno and Paso and in San Fran for the Like a Surgeon Tour), and The B Foundation a total of 3 times too :) (Warped Tour, Santa Cruz, and San Fran!) — see Santa, going to see all of my favorite bands should be seen as some sort of form of charity (since i did give them all money! hahahahha) and all of their tunes have made me more relaxed, positive and happy :)

What else makes me deserving of the “nice list?” Hmmmmm, I restrained from punching my douchebag Chem professor, and Physics professor in the face this quarter for being tenured and terrible teachers; I stayed on budget this last quarter; I am good to my roommates by taking out the trash every single week; and hmmmm, I added my mom on facebook even though I swore I wouldn’t ever allow that to happen! I really can’t think of any more “nice” things I have accomplished, but I think those are all pretty good examples of how good I have been :)

So here is what I would really love for Christmas:

Nikon coolpix L110

Oh isn’t it a beauty?! I would literally give my entire tuition and freedom up for this camera! It is so beautiful! And doesn’t have a removable lens, so I can bring it to shows and actually take pictures and video!!! And I’ll finally be able to retire my shitster little pinky which has a vendetta against me and refuses to take nice pictures and video!!! OH PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE LET THIS BE UNDER MY CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!!!!!!

But if not, I guess I will just have to keep up this “good girl” act untill my 21st birthday, and hope and pray that it is in my bday present next October, cuz we all know, once you hit 21…it is IMPOSSIBLE to be good for Santa’s list anymore!

So other than that, I hope that your reindeer can fly fast so that you won’t be out too late on Christmas Eve, and that you don’t fall off the roof and leave Tim Allen to finish off your job for the night :)

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Holidays!!

Looks Like “Reality” is Reeling It’s Ugly Head Again

September 5, 2010 § 2 Comments

Today: Woke up to realize that I only have 5 days left at home
– Went shopping for non parishables with Dad at Target
– Looked at my class schedule just to get a good laugh at how my life will return to stressful hell in a matter of 2 weeks.

Tomorrow: Need to order my transcript from that JC so that my philosophy credits can transfer :)

So far that is all that’s on my radar of things to do with my last 5 days at home. A bittersweet feeling of being so excited to just get back to college life and start year 3, but then being a little sad when I see the lil swiss getting more and more bummed at the reality that our sister adventures will have to be put on hold untill Thanksgiving. Or seeing the puppy dog (not really a puppy since Jake is now 10 I believe) waiting for my return when I come back from a run, knowing that come 2 weeks I will just be greeted by the shoes in the hallways when I get back from a SLO run; no puppy dog with wagging tail to say hello anymore.

But, on the bright side, I’ll be back in SLO! Back with friends, back to laughs, back to the beach, back to tutoring, back to being a little bit more grown up. So for now, I am just soaking up every little boring moment I have left at home in Roseville, because although I might not miss it now, or next week, I will miss everything and everyone that goes with HOME eventually :)

Day 24 – Where I Live

August 24, 2010 § 1 Comment

Being a third year engineering student…the whole “where I live” thing is a double home standard. I have 2 homes where I live, the first being my parents house in Roseville, California.

Rosevizzle

Roseville is like any hometown, pretty boring. Don’t get me wrong, it’s truly the safest place to grow up and has lots of great stuff for the crowd under 10; but let’s just say that there is a definite reason why everyone wants to get the F out of dodge when it comes time to picking a college. And that is exactly what I did! Located 5 1/2 hours away on the central coast of California, Cal Poly San Luis Obsipo is the perfect college town, and I absolutely LOVE going to school and living in SLO!

I <3 SLO!

Tucked away behind Bishops and surrounded by other hike-able little mountains, SLO is nothing but a downtown shopping area and Cal Poly’s campus…littered with housing developments that are almost all filled with students. Plus the beach is a whopping 5 minutes away on the freeway, and it is almost always 80 degrees outside :)

So in summation, my two homes are amazing! Gotta love life :)

Day 15 – Your Dream House

August 15, 2010 § 2 Comments

hmmmm….I never really thought of what my dream house would be. Even though my SLOme this year is pretty much a dream college house, I was thinking about a different type of vibe for when I’m all grown up and living on my own.

Picture it people. Nothing too big, but not a shack, just a nice humble amount of square footage. From the front it looks like one of those bungalo’s you see in travel magazines, but when you walk in it just screams home! Walls covered in pictures of friends, family, and good times; big comfy couches, sprinkled with some love sacks; a clean kitchen with granite countertops (because granite always looks snazy); a nice sized TV; I’m thinking a multi leveled house with the kitchen and living room on one level, then another living room for entertainment below with the outdoor patio, and then the bedrooms upstairs.

Well if that wasn’t a spout of word vomitt! Pretty much any home where I can sit on my back deck and see this every night….

bliss ;)

…would be considered my perfect dream home :)

Day 11 – A Photo of You Recently

August 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

So, you all know how everyone is going crazy over the iPhone right? Well the iPone can officially suck it, because the Droid is just as amazing (if not better) and it doesn’t drop your calls like nobody’s business! With that off my chest let me further explain. The ONLY thing that makes the iPhone SO amazing, is the apps, and I am not going to lie, I am jealous that I can’t download my 2 favorite band’s apps (Pepper, and Iration) but other than those 2 apps, the Droid OWNS!

The iPhone has sometype of old camera, where there are different settings that make really cool looking pictures. Well, I don’t know if you know, but the Droid also has a free app called “RetroCamera” which has a selection of 4 different retro looks that take absolutely amazing pictures :) I just love the grainy feel of the “orange box” camera (it’s claimed the spot of my favorite!) and this picture was taken with that feature :)

This picture was taken at the beginning of summer when Kimi’s boyfriend foolishly left his longboard at our house…so we had a photoshoot! hahaha
This is my favorite shot from our fun longboarding adventure of a day :)

love this picture :)

Now that my summer school class is finished (with an A in the gradebook! woot woot philosophy conquered!)

Sitting on the curb, trying not to let life fly by…

April 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

Back into the swing of school, and I guess these next ten weeks will at least somewhat painlessly go by. We can only pray though!!!

I don’t know what it is but I can’t help but feel extremely homesick lately. Example, on that lovely Wednesday day off I literally just sat around all day because there was nobody fun to hang out with. And by fun to hang out with….I am most dfefinitely refering to my best friend in this whole entire world, Kim. I still think it is so funny how we used to hate each other’s guts in elementary school, but I guess that’s what growing up will do…make it so that you no longer want to punch your sister in the dome piece!

I had such a good spring break hanging out with Kim this year. We literaly did absolutely nothing special, just chilled…ran to target a couple of times, blared TIME BOMB by Iration, ate shit food that made us feel super fat, made fun of all the super duper asian people at Lollicup (and how we were definitely the only white people in there), watching a couple of good movies, curing Kim’s retard-ed-ness in pre calculus (just kidding, trig is hard…I didnt get it until Calculus) and just laughing at the dumbest things ever that we would only find HILARIOUS!

So yeah…I’m feelin the homesick blues right about now, and its mostly just because I dont have my partner in crime that will tag along on any plan I have…even if its not her fav thing to do…unlike some people who are only concernicus about themselves and there little core 4…ugh…wont be missing that next year!

Oh and if this blog seems a little scattered, thats because I just finished a half an hour run, and am listening to Orianthe JUST RIPPING!!!

Well my focus is drifting….so until next time, I think I’m gonna go on a long walk downtown to pick up a journal, or the new Chelsea Handler bestseller…either or, I cant quite decide yet :)

LOVE AND ROCKETS,

Courtney
