Five on Friday

I had every intention of writing more posts this week, but let's be honest here, it never happened. Summer seems to be a very difficult time for me to do the things I am actually supposed to do, like writing blog posts and going to the gym. Mind you, that knee injury didn't really help.

Anyways, linking up with A Liz Adventures for this edition.

Went to see The Gallows last night with my mom and if anyone has seen it and knows that I love cheesy horror movies, you know I was in my glory! I'm one of those people that HATES being scared but will only watch scary movies. Don't ask me why because I have no idea. The movie wasn't AS BAD as I thought it was going to be. The ending threw me for a loop though and definitely added that twist in there. Has anyone seen it?

Still debating on what I should do - school or ship? No wonder I can't sleep. I'm not sure if I mentioned it or how much I mentioned, but I was accepted into a few programs here at home so now I have to decide if I want to go back to school or back to the ship. There are not a lot of people who think I can do this program or that "it's for me" but little do they know. I am leaning more towards school BUT  UGH HELP!

Since I can't sleep, I have been trying everything to help that. My mom came across this tea and she told me it works wonders. I tried it last night for the first time, and it actually DOES work. I usually swear by Sleepy Time tea by Teavana, but I think this one works much better. I was out and stayed asleep. However, this morning, I kind of had that "sleep hangover" feeling.

Am I the only one that refuses to finish shows just because you don't want them to be over, EVEN THOUGH, next season is around the corner? It's horrible! I have two episodes left of Bones and I cannot bring myself to watch them. Okay, let's be honest, because once Bones is done, it's like now what? I have finally caught up on PLL, started to watch True Detective but I couldn't really get into it, Homeland I am almost caught up on as well. I have too much time on my hands HA!

I cannot believe it is almost August. June took forever to get through and July is just going by way too fast. It's already back to school commercials and soon enough, everything in the stores will be back to school. It's bad enough all the summer fashion is heading out the door to make room for fall stuff. Summer is my favorite month, but when it comes to fashion, I have to say I prefer fall and winter. 

Enjoy your weekend :)

Five on Friday

Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend! Here for another edition of FOF linking up with A Liz Adventures - enjoy :)

Three more days and then I can finally attempt getting back into my workout routine. I injured my knee last Sunday and there's just a little bit of fluid in my knee. So, according to the Doctor, no physical activity of any kind for a week. Seriously - my thoughts when he said that! I am going insane, especially since the weather has been so nice out, it would have been perfect for my runs along the parkway. Three ... more ... days ... 

I recently came across the show Homeland on Netflix and I haven't been able to turn away! Have any of you ever watched this show? It wasn't on my "list" of shows, but it has definitely stolen my attention for the last few nights. I'm just not sure how I feel about Clare Danes in it ... But, if you're looking for a good show to keep you on the edge of your seat, I recommend checking it out

Has anyone else been enjoying Shark Week 2015? It's the best week of the year! Every year, it's put down in the countdown app and I get so excited the closer it gets. You best bet, that sharks are the only thing on tv in this house for one week out of the year. I am so fascinated by sharks and the way they think and survive. I would LOVE to go cage diving with sharks one day and if I could, I would definitely be a shark researcher. Am I weird? Nah, I don't think so! Are sharks misunderstood? I definitely think so!

I finally found some Lenny & Larry cookies while we were in Grove City. If you aren't familiar with them, they are the "healthy" cookie so you don't have to feel guilty while having a cookie as dessert or a snack. They are filled with whey protein, no eggs or dairy and they are vegan. I decided on the chocolate chip and it's like eating a bakery cookie. I also came across some B-Up Bars. Now, if you know me, you know I am a Quest bar kind of girl. I have yet to try the B-Up bar, but my brother thinks they may be a little bit better than Quest. Whenever I try, I will let ya'll know! 
If you are looking for more information about the cookies, and any other products, check the website out here.

Has anyone been able to check out the Semi Annual Sale from Bath & Body Works yet? That store was my first stop when we arrived in Grove City. I definitely had to stock up on my wall air fresheners and they even brought back some discontinued fragrances for the sale (yes, I took full advantage) ANDDD ... the Aromatherapy line was BOGO - YES! I couldn't believe it. I swear by their Sleep line of aromatherapy and have fallen IN LOVE with their Stress Relief line as well. If you're a B&BW lover, you should definitely check out the SAS while it's still on. You won't be disappointed, as usual. 

Thanks for stopping by! =)

2:30am thoughts

I remember being in high school and having my biggest worry being what to wear to the party Friday night. I remember thinking that by 26, I'd have it all figured out - career, husband and kids. If only I knew then what I know now. Don't we all say that though? 

In the last few months I've been debating, and when I say debating I mean not sleeping and having breakdowns, of whether I was returning to ship life or staying home. It all seemed pretty clear to me that I was going to head back out for another contract. UNTIL .. my dad brought up going back to school. That's why I went out there anyways, to save money for school. He just mentioned about going back earlier than I wanted. I've graduated from two programs but haven't been having luck finding a job in my field, so I'm going to pursue my next passion which is the law and policing. I've always dreamed of being on the K-9 unit - well, animal half down, just need the other half. 

Anyway, I was accepted into the programs and my mind was made up that I was going back to school. It might take me a while to find a job and a job that I can also keep during school. That's a little more difficult than I thought. 

Some people were not happy with my decision and think the law field isn't for me. I HATE when people have their doubts about me, but that only drives me more to prove them wrong. However, sitting here wide awake at, now 2:36am, I wonder if I made the right choice. I see photos and videos of people on ships and I do miss it but I think what I need right now in my life is the steadiness of being on land and in school.

I will ALWAYS miss being on the ocean and ship life. I will ALWAYS wonder if I made the right decision. One day I feel confident and the next day I don't. I think will always be wondering and going back and forth. Making a tough decision is never easy and I wonder how long it will take me to feel 100% confident in my decision every single day. 


Ps. Are we all enjoying Shark Week??
