I Want Immunity!

I'm sick...again. Seriously though, my immune system must not exist. I've heard that stress can cause your immune system to weaken and I guess I've had my fair share of stress over the last few years and am feeling especially stressed right now, but there's only so much sickness a girl can handle! I've even been taking vitamins lately! I feel like it's either one thing or the other. And right now, it's the body aches and sore throat. It sucks because being sick is only causing me to stress more!! I cannot miss school(tests, presentations, and papers), so I am missing work which leads to less money, which is a huge stressor right now in my life. It's so frustrating. I need a freakin' break!

I've been feeling like I'm in need of a vacation lately. Unfortunately, I don't have the time, nor the money. So I'm stuck looking through pictures of vacations from the past. Some which I have mentioned I would dedicate posts to and never have. So while these pictures aren't exactly what I promised, at least it's something right?

Key West
(I realize the trip I took back there was 2 years ago but oh well.) I'll admit it. Sometimes I creep on the current Del Sol girls Facebook pictures and it makes me miss Key West a lot. I wish I could go back and do it again and make sure I didn't miss out on anything. Truthfully, I think it comes down to me needing to live in a sunny place near a beach. Yeah, that's it.

Washington D.C.
Love this place. I did post about the trip so I won't say much but I definitely hope this wasn't my last time there. I'll make sure of it actually.

New York City
I had a great time in NYC. I absolutely love that city and would love to be able to make this trip a yearly thing. We crammed a lot into a few days but it was so worth it.

Bartering on Canal Street. Next time I'll take some cash with me...

Um, Felicity anyone??

Central Park bright and early at 6 in the morning. Amazing.

Yankees vs. Red Sox game.

For those of you who know me, baseball is not my favorite sport. If I'm forced to go to a game, I like to show up at about the 5th inning. THIS GAME WENT 15 INNINGS LONG PEOPLE. But I'll be honest, I loved it. It was a lot of fun being there for this game between these huge rivals. I cheered for the Yankees and I fell in love with Johnny Damon. And I'm a fan now and totally cheered them on to win the World Series. :)

On our last day there I had a couple hours by myself in the city because my flight left later than everyone elses. I spent the day in Central Park. The difference between Central Park at 6:00 am and 3:00 on a sunny afternoon? Oh, just about a million people. I loved Central Park. Absolutely loved it. All around it was just an awesome time and that city is amazing!

I'm fascinated by murder and crime. I just am. Not in the way that I want to do it, obviously. But I love watching TV shows that are all about that sort of stuff. Especially if it's based on a true story. I will always jump on the internet immediately after watching something like that and look up more details on the story. I recently watched a movie with Tupac in it and while the movie wasn't about him or anything like that, I became extremely fascinated with him and his life. And especially his murder. So I've added all these documentaries about him to my Netflix queue and have been reading up on him on the internet. He was an interesting person, that's for sure. And it's sad that his life was cut short. Anyway, I don't really have a point to this post but I think that his song "Changes" is probably one of my favorite songs. I can listen to it over and over again. Take a listen if you wish.

Happy Birthday Dad!!

I don't care what any of you think about your own dads. Mine is, hands down, the greatest there ever was! Happy Birthday Dad. I love you so so so much and will be lucky if I find someone even half as great as you are.

PS. This is a REALLY old picture of us but I couldn't find any others of us together. :)

Childhood Dreams

So as you all know, I'm a big Jazz fan. I've been a fan my whole life. It's in my blood. I have specific memories of watching certain games when I was younger and have many memories throughout my years that involve the Jazz.

Of course I loved John and Karl. But my absolute favorite Jazz player growing up was Bryon Russell. I had a HUGE crush on him starting when I was really young. I thought he was soooo hot (and he was). When I started Jr. Jazz, I wore number 3 just because that was Bryon's number. I used to cut out newspaper pictures of him and save them in a little box. It was like my first celebrity crush! It was always a dream of mine to meet him. Well tonight, a good 15 years later, that dream finally came true!!

B-Russ was in town after he called out Michael Jordan to play him 1-on-1. I pretty much figured MJ wouldn't show up but knew Bryon was coming. His twitter told me so. :) There was no way I was going to miss this! Not even this deathly illness I've had for the past week could keep me from going. So I loaded up on the Lortab(bless this pill) and headed over to the Flash game. When I saw Bryon from a distance and it was like the 11 year old girl that cheered for him all those years ago just came right out! I was pretty much giddy.

After the lame halftime show of them trying to fake everyone out with a MJ impersonator was over, he didn't come back out to his seat and I got so sad! Finally, he came back and Mele and I immediately moved closer so we could get a picture. During the 4th quarter he left and got stuck in the tunnel signing autographs for the kids (who probably weren't even alive to know who he was!). After the game we lingered to see if he'd come out and he didn't. Finally we walked over there and he was gone! We were both so disappointed. But I knew there was still a chance. I walked right into that tunnel like I belonged and there we came upon High Flyin' Bryon himself! We walked up to him and asked for a picture and told him we'd loved him since we were five. He was so nice! And seriously still looks so gooood. :) I even tweeted about meeting him and he tweeted back! haha. I think he loved me. Let this be a lesson to never give up on your childhood dreams. ;)
