Grad Student Love

What do you do when you aren't attracted to the dudes in your class?
You download Tinder back onto your phone in hopes to find someone to keep your mind distracted from being so bored.
Hey, a girl can dream right?

By the way, when you're in grad school with only 13 other people in your program, you have every class with the SAME 13 people. Not much selection anyway. 2 old dudes and 2 dorks that I would never find myself interested in.. lame. The rest are women, of course.

I'm excited about working with these people, but as far as finding my future soulmate, not happening through my classes.

However, I have a scholarship position on campus & the Grad Assistant in the office is quite my type. I'm not sure what his situation is, I only got to see him for about 30 minutes during orientation.

Ginger Beard is back..uhm yay. He's so weird. I actually have 2 active ginger beards. The original GB and I met up for a few minutes just to chat while I was in town last week. I was at the mall (where he works) while he was working and we were going to get lunch, but he couldn't take his break for another hour and I was starving. I wait for no one. We've been texting on and off every other day or so since.. nothing exciting at alllll!

The other GB, is actually a guy I talked to for a while last year and reallllyyy started to fall for him. He was the perfect type of guy I was looking for at the time (before I applied to go back to school or even thought about going back). He just so happened to send me a picture on snapchat TWO DAYS after the Samoa incident. HOW DOES HE KNOW!? They have like single-telepathy. They find out when their past interests end a relationship without any logical reason! He doesn't have access to any of my social media, yet he decides to contact me ..on that day?! How in the world? But he has his own story that needs it's own post. I don't have a nickname for him yet..I'll think of one soon and write a post :)

So that's my life right now. The $100 giveaway closed, and I think the winner will be announced tomorrow. I have missed this blog and my bloggy friends sooo much. I promise now that I've got my new laptop.. I will be sooo much better :) I see a lot of procrastination coming soon which means.. more blogging!!

Love you all!!!

Third Thursday// v.3

ThirdThursday Date Disasters

I think the best way to laugh is by remembering these horrible dates... yes, plural, as in more than one.
I honestly need to laugh right now, and this link-up arrived just in time this month!
I would love to hear some of your bad date stories! Link up with us!!

This one time a guy I had met through Christian Mingle said that he had a special talent. He said that he could sing, and other people tell him alllll the time that he was so good and needed to try out for American Idol or something. He then proceeded to show me his YouTube channel. I really wish I didn't have to be so confidential, because I would TOTALLY link his "music" videos. He.was.horrible.

The video he sent me was of him singing "Strangely Dim" by Francesca Battistelli. Why this song? I have no idea. So, I felt terrible for the guy and I agreed to let him take me out to dinner one day. He drove about 3 hours and took me to dinner. It was okay, but I totally wasn't feeling it.

I felt comfortable enough to have him come watch a Redbox movie at my apt (no worries my brother was there so we weren't alone). Then after the movie he tells me that he is too tired to drive home and asks if he can stay the really?

I made him sleep in his car. I was not letting someone stay overnight INSIDE my apt. Are you insane?! You don't just invite yourself to stay the night. So the next morning he had to knock on my apt door to ask me to go to breakfast. Morning breath was HORRIBLE and after breakfast he tried to kiss me. No thanks...buh bye. Be on your merry way!

Just a warning, this post contains heavy cursing.

I'm sick and tired of being treated like a piece of shit. I have been lied to every single time I've been in a relationship. But, I've never been hurt like this before. I've participated in a couple posts concerning "Being a Side Chick" well now I can officially say, I was one for the past 2 months.

He met my entire fucking family. He made my parents fall in love with him. He made ME fall in love with him. He lied to me about EVERYTHING. I was ready to support him and be there for him no matter what. Then, the truth came out this weekend.

I hate him.

He's married & has 2 children.. I knew about the children but he had told me that the mother of those children died in a car wreck... Lie.

His current wife, who is still very much alive and breathing, is the mother of those children. Found this bit of information last night, thanks to good ole Facebook.

I told him I never want to hear from him or see him again. If he shows up on my porch I will call the cops. He said he understood and I hung up the phone.

This wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't involved my family. He should have told me ALL of this before I took him to a veryyyy personal part of me.

My uncle found a video. This is what brought it all up. MY UNCLE!! Now my whole family knows. The video explained how he's a loving father and husband, blah blah bullshit.

Here's what I plan on doing:
Moving on. 

I have way too much shit in my life to worry about dating, or worry about his sorry ass. Yes, I am hurt, my heart has ached all weekend long and I couldn't sleep at all last night. I'll probably end up buying some benadryl or something to help me sleep because I need it this week. School starts in just 2 weeks, I need to rest.

I have a lot of the typical questions running around in my head, but I know that I need to just ignore them and move on. Stop dwelling on it. It happened and it was all a lie. I'm done. Fuck you Samoa.

My Lovers, My Friends

In the month of July, I had my very first paid Sponsors. I must say, even with my chaotic brain, it was such a great experience!! I can't wait for more people to help me out by also becoming my friend :)

If you're a regular around here, you probably have already met or read about my BBF Krista <3 This girl and I have become the BEST of friends. We talk so much. Even though we are SO far away from each other, we talk as though we're neighbors. When I saw that she was my very very very first sponsor, I was jumping for joy! So glad to have a good friend like her to support my love of blogging.

So here's a little bit about Kristie's Blue Jeans:
Lifestyle Blog
Single & Dating
Writes about the truth (which I LOVE)
Has quite a bit of humor in her posts that bring me to laugh out loud
Flaunts them cowboy boots <3
Lives in SoCal 

Having her as my first sponsor, we have built an even stronger relationship, and I'm loving it!! She was patient with me as I was learning the ropes about sponsorships and worked very well with deadlines and keeping me on my toes!

My next sponsor in line is Miss Paulina :) She is also a BBF of mine! We've been developing a great friendship over the past couple of months. I had the fabulous opportunity to be one of her sponsors a couple months ago. Let me tell you something!! If you want to find a good promoter to be a sponsor for, this girl is who you need to go to!! She will work very hard to promote your blog. She'll help you update older posts, create images, and just help you learn about blogging in general! She really knows her stuff!!

Here's a little bit about Color Me Brave:
Topics Galore
Single & Dating
Little bit of lifestyle, blog tips, puppy faces, and fashion
She's really talented when it comes to Social Media
Occasional motivation posts concerning her weight loss journey
Palmer (her dog) is absolutely adorable!!

Like I mentioned with Krista, having Paulina as a sponsor has created a stronger relationship. We are now admins together on a Facebook Group called Blog Life Chose Me. If you'd like to join message me or Paulina and we'll add ya to the group!!

I just want to say thank you SOO much for being my very first sponsors, ladies!! I look forward to more and more friendship-building in the future!! <3

So this weekend was packed full of emotions: happy, sad, excited, worried, confused, etc. 

Yeah.. ^^ that's about right!
Samoa met the family and it went soooo perfectly fantastic. I am extremely exhausted because I didn't get home til after 1am and I'm at work now..exhausted. I was just told some really important people are coming and my office is a WRECK. Mostly b/c I'm leaving my job in less than 2 WEEKS!?!?! Omygosh I can't believe it. Sooo there's that.. gotta clean in a minute.

After the family meeting ended I had a freaking breakdown on the drive home. I'm freaking out about all of this. It's not supposed to be this easy, something has to be wrong.. I shouldn't be freaking out so much.

I think my main reason for freaking out is that it's really close to time for AuntFlo to make her visit.. And just in time too because I have a GIVEAWAY!!! (a giveaway that is just for us ladies)

The PMS Cure giveaway. We all struggle with our lady problems, well Miss Nina from "The Grand Adventures of Me" came up with this AMAZING idea to get a PMS Cure together by suggestions of other bloggers! Make sure to sign up.
