I'm currently in bed with a horrible stomach, watching The Real Housewives of Orange County, and a few blinks away from sleep.
This past week was the longest of my life; I worked from Monday-Wednesday, got up Thursday morning and drove to Pennsylvania for a work trip. I know I said I wouldn't talk about my job in any specifics but I will say that I was at QVC.
Yes, one of the home shopping networks -- that's where my work trip was. It was surreal and cool and very odd. I basically was up for 24 hours straight, only sleeping for about 4 hours from Thursday into Friday. It was really weird being in a television studio and actually being held responsible for something.
I was basically live tweeting/'gramming/facebooking the entire time during our 10 shows on Friday, last from 12AM-12AM. It was truly a wild experience and I never thought I'd do anything like that.
I was nervous the day or so leading up to the trip but it was nothing compared to what I usually experience. I was calm in a sense, and fine once we got to the studio. The only thing that truly worried me was being awake for so long because when I'm awake for that long, I get sick.
Which is how I feel now.
After a whirlwind few days, I drove home Saturday morning, rested for a little bit, showered, and then headed to a Mets game at Citi Field that afternoon with my college friends.

I am so excited for the fall it's unreal-- I feel like I come alive in the fall. The crispness in the air, pumpkin everything, sweaters, riding boots -- BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!

A lot of fun things are happening honestly, and I'm excited. I recently became a volunteer advisor to my sorority -- I'll be helping out a local chapter in Long Island and I don't remember the last time I was this excited. My sorority was such a huge part of my life in college(as you know, I talk about it constantly) and to feel like I'm going back, and doing what I've always loved and what I was good at, feels right. It'll give me something else to do and I'm really looking forward to it.
I have another little side project planned but don't want to say anything yet because it's not 100% definite but if so, it will surely keep my hands busy!
I'm also getting into making monthly goals for things I want to do -- from making a doctor's appointment to getting a new blog design. I think that'll keep me focused and force me to do things from a bigger perspective.
I just feel like I need to get my shit together. It's been two years since senior year started, and I'm still very much longing for my college campus and I think I need to just suck it up. It's over, it's done with, all I have are the memories so let's move on. I need to find other things to do; I can't just stay at home every night watching TV and beauty tutorials on Youtube. I need to DO SOMETHING.
I feel the fire being lit under my ass and it's time to get moving!
What advice do you guys have about staying busy, getting out of the house, staying motivated & positive? I could use all the good vibes I could get :)
