Hoe Downs And Breakfast Goals

If you’re a UF student (especially a senior) then you’re probably working on the F Book.

Documenting the traditions in the F Book will earn you graduation swag. Since I don’t want to walk across the stage with a naked robe I’m getting started now.

My first to cross off: Broward breakfast.

I ate so much gator waffle, oatmeal, bacon, eggs, and coffee coffee coffee.

I love thank you cards, I love cake more. I assume that most people feel the same. In exchange for offering up your house for a party, I’ll most likely give you a cake rather than a card.

And I might make it with pancake syrup. It tastes like a giant panCAKE.

The party was actually a hoe down.

Nailed It

Breakfast and doing my nails and filling out paper work, I do this far too often. It’s almost my daily routine. Now thanks to a tip from a friend I learned how to transfer magazine clippings to my nails.

You’ll need rubbing alcohol, nail polish. clear polish, and a magazine.

Okay, first paint your nails, any colour will do. let them dry. Now cut down pieces from the magazine that will fit on your nail and soak them in the rubbing alcohol. Then you’ll place them on your nail, let it dry. Once it’s dry wet it again with the alcohol and slowly peel off the paper. It should leave then ink behind. now just paint a clear coat over it and you’re done.

And no post is complete unless I’ve shamelessly inserted one of my own paintings. This was a birthday gift for a friend, I know it’s weird but it’s an inside joke so trust me it’s not super weird.

A Time To Tan

Pale, fair-skinned, delicate, porcelain, glow-in-the-dark, pasty, whatever you want to call it, it’s what I am.

Every summer while everyone else’s skin is dropping a few shades after an hour of sun exposure. While mine shows barely any change in colour after a week at the beach.

It’s fine, I accept it. While the rest of you beautiful people have wrinkles and skin cancer in ten years I’ll be the one mocking you for not wearing the SPF 70 sunscreen made for infants.

While on the subject of beautiful people, my grandmother’s birthday is today. Happy birthday Gammy!  For her birthday I painted a picture of her from an old black and white photograph.

I’ve got to say, Gammy was a babe. And I adore her dress, it’s so cute.

This isn’t oil on masonite like the rest of my paintings, it’s acrylic on canvas.

Hydration And Education

So I somehow accidentally bought three cases of Snapple. Not to point fingers but, I blame Kaitlynn Floyd.

Now with three fruity flavors and 18 new pieces of information I feel hydrated and a little smarter. With exams next week I’ll take all the knowledge I can get.

Did you know:

The average lead pencil can draw a line 35 miles long or write roughly 50,000 English words.

The only jointless bone in the body is in your throat.

On average a man spends about 5 months of his life shaving.

While on the subject of hydration, I’ve recently learned that coffee dehydrates your body.

Make A Shopping List

I was forced to eat a stale granola bar for breakfast.

There is no food in my house. I desperately need to go to Wal-Mart, otherwise I’ll have no lunch and I’ll starve, leading to my death, which means the end of this blog.

But good news- Tom Thumb is selling coffee for only 63¢

School

A school of fish made from more grapefruit and some goldfish.

Ever since I began this school semester I’ve loved Mondays. I am never scheduled to work and I have no classes.

I get to sleep in and catch up on studying or go running. And of course I can add a new blog post.

Goldfish were on sale. One dollar and one flavor of each. What a deal!
