Pretty Boy Swag

I'm being played.  Hard.

(the video is a little weird, but the lyrics are TOTALLY true)

  And he doesn't know I know...

So this is how I feel

Happy Birthday!

Today is Elvis Presley's 76th birthday!  And it's no secret that I'm irreversibly in love with the man!  His birthday is on my calendar every single year, but no I don't do any kind of celebration or anything for him.  One year in high school Wal*Mart sold banana reeses peanut butter cups though and it was amazing!! I stocked  up, put them in the freezer and Martha and I ate them for a month I swear.  It was the best thing anyone could have given me for Elvis' birthday!   An Elvis impersonator even kissed me when I was 17!  Not quite as cool as it would have been if he was the real Elvis, but I'll never forget it!  I even still have the scarf he gave me, it hangs in my bedroom and I love it!  So I did a quick sweep around my room and realized just how much Elvis memorabilia I have and it's a little insane!

My Elvis Bags 

I have some pretty random stuff like these Elvis note cards 
These are my Elvis movies, some of them are double or quadruple features, so I have quite a few!

Paula bought me this picture on choir tour our junior year of high school!  Now it sits in my window sill and I get to look at it everyday!

Elvis Impersonator....see, he gave me his purple scarf!

I hate the beginning of school. Especially the first day when the teacher hands you the syllabus and says, Look at everything you have to get done in the next 4 months! It totally sends me over the edge. I think that's why I have a slight breakdown at the beginning of every semester and desperately want to change my major. Let's just say that 4 years into college, this is probably not the situation I should be in. It drives me bonkers! So I spent a couple hours today looking at what I need to do to graduate (as fast as possible) what I would need to graduate in something other than English (a possibility that has never actually taken hold in my brain) and considering what in the world I'm going to do next. After hours spent in frustration trying to plan the rest of my life (i have to plan, it's a compulsion) I have figured out a *tentative* plan:

Continue in the English Major
Add an Editing Minor
Graduate in 2 years
Get into an Interior Design Program

This is where things get a little fuzzy. I looked at LDS Business College and the Art Institute of Utah and I don't know exactly where things will go. The Art Institute is going to send me some more information and if I can actually get started on the design program while doing my English Degree (and working) so much the better. Needless to say....this is 10000X more overwhelming than that stinking syllabus they give us at the beginning of the semester, but I will get it all day at a time. Wish me luck!
