I’m doing a color run next Saturday! It’s a 5k, and I’m super excited. Now maybe I should go for a couple jogs before it…..

Elections for my student pro-life group are this Tuesday! I’m looking forward to being more involved next school year, and will update with what role I’ll have in that next Sunday.

Right now I’m writing a report on the Woodstock festival in 1969. I looked up videos and HAHA, it’s real hippies!

I just found out recently that I’m living on the bottom floor of McDonald hall next year – the dorm with 8 person suites! I’m excited about the suite set-up and we’ve already begun plans for Pinterest-y things to do for it.

Do you know something that’s really delicious? This popcorn flavor powder is SOOOOOO good. The nacho cheese flavor is excellent as well. We stocked up on popcorn and these two powders (along with other delicious things that are bad for you) in anticipation of impending finals week 🙂

So you’ve probably seen the Dove Real Beauty video, right? It’s where women explained their features to a forensic artist who drew them. Then strangers described the same women. The later drawings showed much more beautiful people. So someone decided to make a parody of the video for men…..and it’s totally rude. I’m definitely writing more about it soon.

It’s only 17 days until I’m done with my freshman year at Benedictine! I am SO ready to be done, see my family, and be back in California. It has been an incredible year, and I have certainly learned so much. It’s been a big growing year for me as a person, a Catholic, and as a student. But now it’s time to bring on summer before my sophomore year!

  1. Not to seem dense or generally ignorant, but I’m curious…how is that commercial parody rude?

    Just wondering… 😛


    1. Most people I’ve seen reference it think it’s funny, but I think it’s insulting to guys. Why should we tell women how beautiful they are and tell guys how ugly they are? Seems contradictory to me, and it goes along with the gross type of feminist domination of the world – but I’m probably reading too much into it.


What do you think about this? Let's sit down and chat.
