Random Monday 7/1/13

Random Monday @NotInadequate

“Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time”

This The Mamas and the Papas song written by John Phillips is SO appropriate for me today! This has been the worst Monday I’ve experienced in recent years.

Once again, I’m linking up with my bloggy friend Deb, over at Not Inadequate for some Monday randomness.

~ I got to spend all morning at a Florida DMV office getting new tags for our Jeep. Roger has kept putting off registering it in Florida, and it was finally picked up for expired tags this weekend. Approximately $800, two trips to an impound lot and 3 hours in a DMV waiting room later, and we now have two Florida registered vehicles. What a shame we’re planning to move back to California in less than 2 years.

Florida License Plate

~ I got zero sleep last night due to a completely horrific toothache. My tooth and jaw were literally throbbing so bad that I couldn’t lay my head down at all because even the pressure on the opposite side of my head was unbearable. No sleep made my morning at the DMV SO MUCH BETTER (not).

~ We are planning to do lots of Walt Disney World fireworks this week in honor of the 4th of July. So far, we think we’ll be taking in the Magic Kingdom fireworks on July 3, and then spending the 4th of July at Epcot for their awesome display. The only issue with this is the weather forecast which is currently showing rain, rain and more rain for the whole week.

~ I finally got my first Julep review up yesterday, and actually have my July Julep Maven box sitting here waiting to be opened. I had planned to open it and take pics this afternoon, but those plans got waylaid by a very unhappy circumstance that I will be posting about separately. I also sampled the last of the items I received in my June Birchbox, so that review will be getting posted in the next couple of days as well.

And finally…

~ Today’s song post is about the new Ke$ha and Will.i.am collaboration, “Crazy Kids.” I absolutely love the chorus of this song, but completely hate Ke$ha’s obnoxious sing-songy annoying spoken word cadence that she does in her songs. Because I enjoy the chorus so much, I have completely mixed feelings about this song, wanting to turn it up to sing along with one part, but wanting to change the station for the rest. I think this is quite possibly the most bipolar response I’ve ever had to a song, and it confuses me. The most frustrating thing for me about the whole situation is that I know Ke$ha can sing well, but chooses to do her annoying sing-songy nonsense. Ugh!

That’s all the random I have for today. I actually have another post coming up shortly about a very not-random situation that occurred this afternoon, so stay tuned for that to be posted soon as well. Thanks for dropping by! Blog at you later!

Cheers, Shauna

Feel-Good Friday

I spent most of today busy with homework and projects for my internship. Despite being busy, I definitely had a couple of feel good things to focus on today.

~ First off, I saw “Monsters University” today, and I loved it! The marching band cadences had me tapping my toes throughout the whole movie, and I really liked the short before it as well.

~ My natural nails are really soft and weak, so I did some research on something that might help, and found Nailtiques Formula 2. I’ve only been using it a couple of days, but my nails already feel better, and are less bendy.

~ Because my nails are less bendy, my manicure is staying on way better. I’m loving this lilac polish!

Color Club “Pardon My French”

Please disregard my horrible manicure. I was in a hurry before the movie, and forgot to push back my cuticles.

~ I’m pretty sure I’ve solidified my last internship that I need for school, so I won’t have to stress about that any more. It will be with the company I’m currently with, and I might even make commission off my sales. Extra cash would be nice.

~ And finally, my books for this term’s classes arrived today so I won’t have to stress about having them any more. Studying doesn’t make me feel good, but having the tools I need to be successful does.

What are the things you are feeling good about this Friday? Share your comments below, and have a great day! Blog at you later!

Feel-Good Friday

I have several things to feel good about this Friday!

– Today is the Summer Solstice, which means the days are going to start getting shorter. I LOVE this time of year because I love Autumn which means FOOTBALL SEASON! Because I am ALWAYS ready for some football!

– Since the classes from the first term of the Summer semester ended yesterday, and my new classes don’t start until Monday, I am technically on my “Summer Break” this weekend. It’s short, but I’m going to enjoy it!

– I have my Julep Maven box waiting to be opened, and reviewed. I decided to wait until today when I would have the time to use the polish immediately. This of course, also means I’m feeling good about doing my nails today!

– I received a shipping notification this morning letting me know that my first Birchbox is on its way, so that should be arriving sometime next week. Woohoo!

– We have some free passes to the Kennedy Space Center that must be used by the end of June, so we’re going to head over there this weekend. I’ve never been, but Roger visited when he was a kid after his parents picked him up from Space Camp. (Yes, you read that right; he did indeed go to Space Camp.) Either way, it should be fun, and I intend to be sure we stop by the beach for a quick splash in the Atlantic before heading back home.

– I have a new camera that I’ve not had the chance to really try out with an actual destination so I’ll finally be able to put it through its paces at KSC and the beach.

– This little gem:

Monsters University

opens in theatres today, and I can’t wait to see it. I loved Monsters Inc., and am excited to see the character development in this movie, and how it will tie in to that one.

– We got the replacement fan hung in our bedroom so I’m able to finally sleep a bit more comfortably. Even better, this one has a light kit with it, so we finally have overhead light in our bedroom instead of just lamplight.

– And finally, today marks my one-week blogiversary, and I’m happy to say that I’m up to 10 followers in a mere 7 days! It’s a lovely feeling knowing that my writing is not just floating out into the ether with no one but me to read it. I’ve been swamped, so haven’t had time to read and comment on all of the blogs I follow, plus new ones, but I’m working through my list, and will get to everyone asap. A big thanks to everyone who is willing to brave the random!

So as you can see, I have a lot to be feeling good about. Please take a moment to let me know why your Friday is Feel-Good in the comments section below. Blog at you later!

Cheers, Shauna
