Why Australians Don’t Suck

Why did I JUST find out that Dee and Mac are married in real life?! Most unexpected/greatest couple ever.

Can’t wait to see this guy in Alice in Wonderland

“I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee a the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me.’” –Lady Gaga

V V Brown = Amy Winehouse 2.0 and I love her!

Just watched Assassination of A High School President, which was pretty good (would have been better if Mischa Barton wasn’t in it..wompwomp).

10 Things I’ve Learned This Semester

As the first semester of my sophomore year at BU comes to an end, I decided to take a look back at the lessons I have learned throughout the past 4 months.

1.) It IS possible to develop an immunity to caffeine.

2.) All-nighters are much more fun with your roomie.

3.) Surprise visits (especially to Vermont) are the best!

Becca's Birthday Surprise at UVM!

4.) Sundays at school=nostalgia. I really don’t know why. Just happens.

5.) Cutting your own bangs is a bad idea, but I will continue to do it out of laziness/lack of money.

6.) My wall needs a lot of work, but it’s getting there.

7.) I can wake up 15 minutes before my class starts and make it on time.

8.) I could peruse blogs/bloglovin.com for hours. Reading about Chinese revolutions? Not so much.

9.) Arnold Palmers are vital to my existence.

10.) Having teachers that actually want you to learn things, not just memorize them, makes the class much more rewarding. (Thank you, Humanities professor!)

What have YOU learned this semester?

PS- HAPPY WINTER BREAK! I hope it is relaxing as ever and all your dreams come true!

Singin’ Hey Na Na Na Na Na Na

This is obviously long overdue, but I’ve recently fell head over heels in love with Coconut Records’ “Davy” album. You have it, right? IT’S OUT OF THIS WORLD! So easy to listen to/fun to sing along to. Also, Jason Schwartzman is dreamy and oh-so talented. Here are my top 3 favorite songs!

1.) Saint Jerome

2.) Any Fun (video includes a Chloe Sevigny cameo!)

3.) Microphone (another awesomely cute video)
