So what has been going on in the life of Kate lately? Well allow me to fill you in:
In (un-)short, I have been going to work, doing homework, going to school, doing more homework, avoiding my inbox like it’s the plague, watching my brothers, meeting my nephew, hanging out with the family, doing more homework, practicing my procrastinating skills while pretending to do homework, trying to convince at least one fellow student that I am a funny person worthy of friendship (I’d even settle for acquaintanceship), being a loner because apparently I suck at convincing people I should be their friend, celebrating one of my friend’s 21st birthday, catching up on sleep because I was up until FIVE FREAKING A.M. while celebrating my friend’s 21st birthday, watching multiple episodes of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries when I should be doing homework, watching Dirty Dancing multiple times in a row when I should be blogging, watching multiple episodes of the Vlog Brothers when I should be doing something productive (I know, I know. I fail when it comes to getting stuff done), watching a video of a super creative and talented girl who shares my same views on procrastination, having a dinner with my mom and her new cat Boober (Yes you read that right. His name is BOOBER!), spending a butt-load of time stalking people on Twitter, going out to dinner with my friends for half off appetizers at Applebee’s because we are college students and can’t afford it otherwise, helping my brother with his homework which just so happens to be the most difficult task on the face of the planet, playing with Lola because she’s super cute and I love her, going out in public for the first time IN MY PAJAMAS (no shame), getting an A+ on my poetry portfolio, congratulating myself because I apparently don’t suck hardcore when it comes to poetry, freaking out because now that the poetry session is over I have to write a 10 page short story, freaking out because it won’t stop snowing and I want spring to be here already, not doing laundry because I am too busy doing unproductive things, wearing really hideous things to work because I haven’t been doing my laundry, not doing my hair because I feel my time would be better spent playing with my cat in the morning instead of getting ready, having spring break at college and being all “YAY!” about it, crying because I end up working all throughout my spring break and being all “Wahh” about it, getting all sorts of excited because BEA is coming up, freaking out because I am not old enough to purchase hotel reservations, begging the people of twitter to take me on as a roommate, failing to convince anyone to be my roommate at BEA, telling people I am NOT a serial killer in hopes of gaining a roommate, yet again failing to snag myself a roommate, begging the people reading this blog post to take me on as a roommate for BEA (seriously people, I am quite the catch. I am a clean freak, I don’t snore, sometimes once I get rolling I can be quite entertaining, I am always game for some food, and as stated above, I am NOT a serial killer. In all honesty, I would pay half and it would be all sorts of fun, I promise. If you are at all interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org), getting all embarrassed because I do NOT like asking people for favors, filling out my taxes like a freaking BOSS, writing up lengthy and unimportant Life As Kate blog posts instead of sleeping, worrying because I have to be up in approximately 6 hours, and finally wrapping up this list of things I have been up to because I have to be up in SIX HOURS!
So as you can see, a lot has been going on. I have been going crazy with the amount of time work, school, and homework have all been taking up. With that being said, I am sorry for the lack of bookish posts here on the blog! Time has been limited so reading and blogging have had to take a very short-lived backseat. School will be over with in a couple more weeks so if you can just stick with me a bit longer, I promise I will soon get back to my obnoxiously gushy book reviews soon. Until then, I leave you with pictures of cuteness a.k.a Henrik (the baby nephew) and Lola (my feisty little feline)!
PHOTOS OF THE WEEK(S):
He was so little!
Henrik slept through almost our entire visit but he was awake enough to give us this big yawn!
Henrik’s newborn pictures came in. How adorable!
Yasmine and I on her 21st birthday! You’d probably never guess but black’s my favorite color. Just saying.
I have been LOVING every minute with Lola. I feel so bad because as stated not-so-subtly above, I have been incredibly busy lately. Since I have been spending more time away than at home, I have not had much playtime with her the past couple weeks. Lola seems to be handling it like a champ, though. Sure she attacks me for two hours straight when I actually do show up at home but that is all totally understandable! My hands have been sporting scratches since the beginning of January so I am used to it by now. Lola went with me to meet my mom’s new cat and that proved to be quite entertaining. Since Boober is a boy, he felt the need to show it was “his house” by hissing at Lola non-stop for the first half hour. At first it seemed like Lola was going to back down and let Boober be the boss but in true girl power form, she wacked the heck out of him! Every time he turned around he was getting swatted by Lola and I couldn’t be more proud of her. Aside from being tough and feisty, Lola has also been growing like crazy. I am trying not to be depressed about it but am failing miserably. So instead of focusing on that little downer, let’s look at her cuteness!
Lola watched Twilight for the first time and she was obviously a fan. Oh and she is smart too because she seemed to favor Edward ;)
She certainly likes posing for the camera!
She always looks so cute while she’s sleeping!
Lola just wants to be friends. Boober…not so much!
