Black Diamond Ball

24 Apr

So, initially this post was going to be gorgeous pictures from going out this weekend and of me and my sorority sisters at our year end Formal/Banquet. Well, change of plans. It just so happens my purse got stolen this weekend, resulting in me losing my driver’s license, credit card, debit card, phone, camera, and favorite lip gloss :( (Not to mention the clutch too!) As you can imagine, it’s been an absolute nightmare trying to replace everything and put my life back together! Even more annoying, I’m pretty sure I found a Craigslist ad for my phone… Yeah, the phone I literally purchased like less than 2 weeks ago. I know everything will come together and work out, it’s just a big hassle and a lot of additional stress, especially with finals coming up. So unfortunately I can’t show you any of my photos from formal, but here are two I stole from my grandlittle to tide you over until more people upload things to Facebook:

Me and my grandlittle Logan :)

Grandlittle, Me, Twin, and Grandniece... about half of the sorority fambam :)

In other news, it’s senior week! It’s a really fun/sad week where we do lots of fun activities with the seniors before they graduate, and try to pretend like our bigs aren’t leaving us. It’s sort of a love/hate relationship with the whole graduation thing. I took a bunch of pics with my big Amanda at formal but unfortunately they are on the previously aforementioned stolen camera :( But hopefully she’ll get a few of us this week for me to show you. How was your weekend? What are you guys up to these days? I missed blogging so much!

Spring in Pictures (Yep, a real post!

16 Apr

Welp, I’m still recovering from being sick, and hunkered down preparing for two weeks of hell when all of my final projects are due, but I missed my blog dearly and writing this post will surely be more fun than going on hour six of work on my creative writing portfolio. In other news, I officially have two great job offers in Los Angeles over the summer and will spend the week agonizing over which one to take! I guess my life could be worse. Anywho, here are a few pics from my 21st birthday shenanigans… well, a highly edited selection. :)

Getting ready to go out on my 21st birthday. Courtney was the first best friend I made in my sorority during the first week of school freshman year!

Krista and Bianca (more pledge class sisters) waiting til the stroke of midnight to take me out

Chula and I have been best friends since 8th grade. (We were even varsity cheer co-captains in high school) :)

Oh, and, the other big thing happening this week is that I get to see this yahoo for 5 days for my sorority’s formal ball… (!!!!)

D'awww.

One more thing… I was also named Chief Justice Elect of the University Greek Standards Board. Woohoo! Okay, well, I’m off to figure out how to double the number of hours in each day and reduce the amount of sleep I need by 50%. Hope your week will be more relaxed than mine. I promise to find time for a little (okay maybe a lot) of fun. Just not a lot of sleep :)

Bisous,
Rachel

Radio Silence

11 Apr

So… remember that little bout of strep from last weekend? Turns out it decided to become a full-on extremely severe tonsil infection. At least Papa Bruce was here this weekend to help take care of me. It is NO BUENO and it’s making it very hard to get ready for finals. Sorry if you don’t here from me for a few more days… I haven’t forgotten about you or this blog!! Just trying to get to a point where my temperature falls below 100, I’m no longer freezing and sweating at the same time, oh, and the ability to eat solid food again would also be great. Hope your week is going better than mine!!

Bisous,

Rachel
