I am Katy Perry and I am amazing

Halloween 2011 with my Hippie Love, Casey Ford



On Saturday night, Casey and Chelsey and I went to the Wave (the campus pub) and danced the night away  in our great costumes.  I was very happy with the turn out of my Katy Perry look alike.  I felt like a teenage dream ;)  But it was a decent night to say the least.  Sunday went well, church was long and I relaxed during the afternoon that was rainy and windy!  It was yucky but a well deserved afternoon of relaxation.  But today was a good Monday for sure.  I woke up thinking that today and the rest of the week were going to be horrible, but today turned out to not be so bad for two reasons;

1.  That Global Issues paper that I thought I was going to get a horrible mark on.. Got that back today.  And I got a B+ !! I could not be any happier with that mark especially in this course.

2.  My Soc midterm was easier than I expected, which is always a good thing.  I am still content that I studied a lot though, I enjoyed the learning.

Tonight, I watched a horror movie to celebrate the Halloween night!  It was well spent... Now, I should probably get started on my Christmas shopping!

It's Friday

Speaking of Friday Friday... think about this

Rebecca Black---> 
Last Friday Night Video--->
Katy Perry--->
 One of my favorite celebs--->
Halloween Costume!

That is right folks, I am being Katy Perry for Halloween.  I've got the glitter, and the glam.  I dyed my hair, almost black and I've got some fake pinkish purple extensions to put in tomorrow night before going out to Party.  Kind of sad when you think about it though,  I am being Katy Perry yet tonight (Friday night)... I will be at home, in pj's, studying for my sociology midterm which happens to be on Halloween night.  Happy freaking Halloween to me ;) 
Hope you all weekend filled with treats, tricks and awesomeness

Someone told my mother today at church that they would not want a kick from me today



And you can probably see why... these boots were made for walking.

But seriously, get this... This outfit is my favorite for one reason.  It was cheap!  I got a great deal at Old Navy the other day on the skirt and shirt, the boots are $12 from Value Village, and the tights are $2 from an outlet store.  You know how at the beginning of a new season you determine some of your favorite pieces to wear for that season (or maybe this is just me) ? Well be prepared to see these pieces a lot.  I have fallen in love with them all so much.  Hope you all enjoyed a lovely Sabbath Day.  I spent it with my little guy Jude at church and I will spend tonight finishing a paper for my Global Issues course that is due tomorrow.  Thank goodness.  The course itself has created a lot of issues in my life.  Cannot wait for December to get it done with!

You've got a fast car

this song is beautiful, take a listen.  At the Young Single Adult Conference that I went to last weekend two of my good friends sang it together, so lovely!!

So, in this reference to cars, I have been meaning to write about this for awhile, as well as a lot of other things.  I have been slacking for sure, but I want to try journaling so maybe I will be able to continue to do both.  So, here is the little update.

This is my new baby, well new to me, of about a month now...
Blogworld meet Ella


My 2000 Toyota Echo.  She is just a lovely little gem in my life as of lately.  I feel so mature, and she makes me happy.  Life is good, Ella is wonderful, and I am full of smiles on this sunny day.

Falling

Yesterday while I was driving to school for the second time, I watched a leaf fall to the ground.  It was right there in front of me, slowly swaying back and forth in the wind until it hit the ground.  I knew right there and then that it was fall.  I have been dreading the fact that summer is over.  No more beach nights, no more warmness and no more sand in between my toes.  However, fall brings a new change to the earth which I am very grateful for.  I thought about 'Fall'.  Yesterday I realized how much this word means to me, not only with the change of season, but a change of heart.  Some days I feel like I am falling out of place, but somehow everything manages to fall into place almost perfectly.  Like today for instance when I stressed out for my french midterm and really was not so bad.  I found a lucky penny today in the library and I think it brought me some luck.  I put it in my pocket and took a penny out of my own wallet to leave there for the next person studying their butt off.  I felt happy that I did it.  Another thing about this word is falling in Love, but falling apart.  Of course as you all know, Haig and I have been in a long distance relationship for over two years now.  The longest period of time we have spent together has been a full week.  I would say with all the visits added up we have probably spent more than six months together.  So, now you can see why our relationship has some challenges to it.  But I would not change a thing for now.  Every time we are together, we learn something new about each other, and we make each other laugh more, cuddle more, and enjoy each other's company more.  I keep learning new ways to fall more and more in Love with this amazing man.  With out relationship, for now, each greeting does have a farewell.  When Haig left yesterday morning, I felt like my whole world was falling apart.  We all have our breakdowns and this was mine for the month (well, maybe another one later in the month when I write my Global Issues paper, eek).
So my little advice for this new season, is to let yourself fall out of place, with faith that things will fall into place and also to fall in Love and let yourself fall apart when you need to.
Happy Fall

So I went to class...

And now I wish I had not.
When I woke up this morning I knew I had not slept well.  Now I just feel a gazillion times worse.  It is upsetting to not feel good when there is much to be done.  I do not feel productive when I wish I did.  I do not feel motivated when I really wish to do school work (strange right---I actually do like school!).  I don't know what it could be though.  It is mostly my upper body feeling sore and tense.  I am feeling a little light headed as well.  This is not what I need right now.
I believe I will watch Glee with my sister, paint my nails, and then get some Zzz's.

Rainy Day

To go out to my Global Issues Lecture or to not go out to my Global Issues Lecture
That is the question.

Choosing the Right will change your life

Time surely does go by..  because it seems like only yesterday that I wrote that post when really it was almost a week ago.  I have just been busy with school, work and personal life.  But the funny thing is, is that I am not really that busy with school, work or personal life.  I just feel like I am, overwhelmed with work that I need to do for these things.  I worked a bit this weekend and I also attended General Conference (2nd Session) yesterday.  I came home and wrote a paper while Haig was at Priesthood session.  I love him, but when it comes to getting my school work done, he is a distraction.  I got most of my paper done.  I will try and finish it up sometime tonight or tomorrow morning.  It is for my University 103 course.  We had to interview one of our professors, ask them questions about their career and schooling background and then write about it.  I have really liked this assignment and I am really happy that I chose my Global Issues Seminar Prof.  He is a really cool guy.  Before I called Haig last night, I had heard that there was an accident downtown.  From what I understand, it was a group of teenagers on some sort of prank around Charlottetown.  Three cars were in the accident and there was one death.  As upsetting as this is, it made me so grateful for the gospel in my life, but most importantly General Conference.  I was proud that out of everything my boyfriend could be doing late on a Saturday night, he was at Priesthood session and that he was choosing to be there.  People do stupid things everyday, big or small, I am grateful that I know how to Choose the Right.
This week will be pretty crazy, with not a whole lot of spare time.  So wish me luck with everything I need to get done and I hope all is well with you all.
XO, Lyssa
ps.  I will be posting later tonight on something exciting in my life.
