I'm going to So. Cal. with one of my good friends for spring break. She's never been to Cali, and I was wondering what you would reccommend we see. We don't have many days there, so I'm just trying to get her the highlights. I was thinking Venice beach, Pacific beach, definitely a drive up/down the coast on Highway 1. She wants to see the sunset strip, but that's the only request. Since this his her first trip, I want to make sure it's me out and give me suggestions! What's your favorite thing to do in So. Cal.?

I'd put a visit to "The Price is Right", but I don't care for Drew Carey and his Republican, gun toting views. I wish Bob Barker would still be there, so I could try and make out with an old man. :P

Once upon a time...

...I wrote a blog and it was fun. Life has been hectic, and I am full of excuses.

A lot has been happening lately, including the start of a new semester, and it seems harder and harder to acclimatize, especially in the winter. Here in the heartland, we have experienced the hardest winter just about ever. It started early, and is still in full swing with sub-zero temperatures and tons of snow. At least the sun came out today. I thought I just might die on Monday, it had been so long since I had seen sunshine. I have also had to really adjust my attitude since it was getting me down. It's time to look on the bright side of life!

So here are some things that make me smile/get excited:

My roommate's note on our electric bill (in red sharpie marker): I HATE XCEL ENERGY AND ALL OF THEIR REPUBLICAN FREINDS!!

Eating Valentine's Day truffles

Receiving Valentines vial snail mail from pals

Eating Taco Bell

Pancakes with peanut butter AND maple syrup on top (if you haven't tried this, then you're missing out. It's absolutely sinful)

Jim Gaffigan and his musings on Bacon and Hot Pockets

These are just a few. More to come! I hope everyone is having a sunshine day! :D
