Deep Thought Confessions and a Link Up Announcement!

–The other day I was reading a blog post by a twenty something. I don’t recall what the post was about but I remember her saying something about graduating college in 2012. While I have no desire to go back to my twenties, it made me think. I didn’t much appreciate college while I was there. I didn’t absorb everything I could because I just wanted to take classes to graduate and move on to my real life. I think college would be better served for the mind of a 30 or 40 something. Someone who knows who they are and is comfortable with themselves enough to get the most out of each class. Thoughts? #toocoolforschool

–I am deeply disturbed by all this Planned Parenthood crap about selling fetal body parts. Um, it is illegal to sell body parts. Period. #fuckedup

–I finished reading The Art of Racing in the Rain the other day and it has really changed my perception of what my dogs may be thinking/feeling. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could read their thoughts?? #dogsarepeopletoo

–I looked out the window at the full moon on Friday evening and thought to myself…well that makes sense! Have you ever noticed that weird shit happens on the full moon? That people are a little off or moody? #fullmoon #werewolves

Thinking of the full moon got me thinking about astrology. Astrology got me thinking about how I sometimes identify with being a Leo and yet am complete opposite at the same time. Then it got me wondering about all of my blogging friends and if they identify with their sign or not? I thought….what a great topic of a one time link up!!!

Link up with Laura and I for the What’s Your Sign link up, Wednesday, August 19th!

What's Your Sign Link Up Button

You can write about whether or not you identify with your sign. If you are a fan of astrology or think it is total bullshit. Anything that deals with the topic is fine.

Confessions in ecard

so true.


Funny jokes, Lmao quotes, jokes quotes, funny pictures …For the funniest pictures and jokes funny visit

Lol yep this is me. I would rather hang out with my dogs most of the time. Only a select couple of people I enjoy hanging out with.

◆I LOOOVE this because it's SO true!!! :D Although, I'd have to add in class...can't forget in class... Way back when (;D)...I'd definitely have to own up to "a coupla" mini-slumbers while trapped in a lecture hall...subjected to a BORING lesson or two (or a few). ◆

    Fun idea for a link-up! I’m a Pisces on the cusp of Aries and think I definitely exhibit traits of both.

  • Reply Kay R. August 5, 2015 at 9:28 am

    That planned parenthood thing freaks me out. Body part = no! Im not big on horoscopes (even though I fit the Virgo bill to a T apparently) but sounds like a fun link up!

    I took a class in college for my English major that was all books about animals – either about them or written from their perspective. Best class ever. I like to think I know what Hawkeye is thinking. I narrate her thoughts out loud, so does John. But she’s pretty easy to narrate, you can see it on her face. ‘tacos tacos tacos!’, basically. I wish the collar that lets the dog talk in Up really existed, I’d get it!

  • Reply Kelli August 5, 2015 at 9:58 am

    I think this about college all the time! We don’t let kids drink, rent cars, vote etc why do we let them choose their life path’s at 18??

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 5, 2015 at 10:04 am

    LOL about the quicksand! I used to have a big fear of it as well as a kid, all those darn 80’s movies and tv shows using it as a weapon of choice! And I hear ya on the whole college thing, I definitely had fun but had no idea what I really wanted or what I was doing other than powering through to finish 😛

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo August 5, 2015 at 10:15 am

    So true about the college thing. My little sister is going to be a junior this year and she keeps whining about how she’ll probably have to take an extra semester to graduate. I tell her over and over STRETCH IT OUT AS LONG AS YOU CAN AND ENJOY IT because you have the real world to deal with for the rest of your life. I wish I appreciated it while I was there because it was some of the best years of my life!

  • Reply Morgan August 5, 2015 at 10:22 am

    Love the linkup idea!! I’m marking it on my calendar now!

  • Reply Mia @ MakeMeUpMia August 5, 2015 at 10:33 am

    Couldn’t agree more, this Planned Parenthood stuff is just insane…

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually August 5, 2015 at 10:38 am

    I love the linkup idea! I know, logically, that astrology is bogus. But I do strongly identify with my sign, and I have an astrological dating book that I bought because it was spot on for both me and my (then current) boyfriend. It’s been totally accurate for each relationship since. So it’s a lot of fun even if my rational brain knows better.

    Any type of class or school is so much more valuable now than it was when I first started! I didn’t appreciate learning at all then, and now I love it. We should have a 5 or 10 year grace period for everyone who doesn’t actually know what they want to do straight out of high school so they can grow up a little before tackling higher education.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 5, 2015 at 11:02 am

    You are spot-on about college! I loved it but wish I would have worked harder my first three semesters. I was in a sorority but wish I would have been a nicer gal! I’d love to go back and redo those things. Plus having all your friends in one spot! For Planned Parenthood- there is a great article from the New York Times that explains what’s going on. A lot of these videos have been edited WAY out of context and I was sickened until I started doing some research. I’ll send it to you.

  • Reply Amanda August 5, 2015 at 11:17 am

    I heard that the Planned Parenthood thing is misinterpreted and that it’s cells for research and they don’t get paid. But who knows? The thought alone is definitely creepy!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter August 5, 2015 at 11:20 am

    I think the EXACT same thing about college. I want to go back so badly just to learn something new but it is like 524673413243543541 dollars and unless I am doing it for a specific purpose I cant justify spending that type of money. I will definitely link up! Great idea!

  • Reply Biana @blovedboston August 5, 2015 at 11:27 am

    OMG the time ecard is spot on – why?! I agree with college in the sense of classes, but not in terms of partying – I just can’t hang like I used to !!! lol! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply Michael August 5, 2015 at 11:34 am

    YES YES YES ABOUT COLLEGE!!! I don’t even need to elaborate because I’m on the exact same page as you.

    I would love to absorb other people’s health benefits, haha. That would be great.

  • Reply Marie August 5, 2015 at 11:51 am

    I totally agree with your thoughts on college. I went to college at 17 and graduated at 21. Looking back, I was way to young to be in college. To be honest, I didn’t have the best college experience, it was not the best time of my life and I think it was really due to that fact that I was just so young.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 5, 2015 at 11:58 am

    Planned Parenthood is not selling fetus parts. There is a federally legal tissue donation program (agreed to by donors) that they operate within for fetal tissue research that was authorized by the National Institutes of Health Revitalization Act of 1993. In the unedited video of the sting operation (that’s over two and a half hours longer than the clip they decided to show people) it’s clear the money figures are lawful cost reimbursements for shipping and packaging to send to approved institutes.

    people would hate me in college – i’d be all judgey and like, YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US BECAUSE YOU’RE A MORON SO FUCK OFF AND AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR YOUR BULLSHIT!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine August 5, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    Go to an ER sometime on a full moon Friday night! That is where you will see all the crazies ha ha! I agree 110% about college! I find I am so much smarter now and absorb so much more in life! That’s why I want to be a professional student because I know I’m so much better at it now ha ha! Hope you’re having a fantastic Wednesday you’re wonderful lady!

  • Reply Mattie August 5, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Ohhh, that Astrology link-up sounds so interesting! I definitely have some traits of Scorpio…even if I think it’s just coincidence.

  • Reply kristen August 5, 2015 at 1:34 pm

    ew wtf planned parenthood!
    i actually have an astrology type post in my drafts, wrote it ages ago. i might have deleted it actually lol. but that’s KC’s birthday and I already have a post scheduled 🙁 I’ll have to post it a day early!
    i never went to an actual college, i did it online. the only way i would do it now is if i got paid to go, i have bills lol

  • Reply alyssa August 5, 2015 at 2:41 pm

    Seconding Steph’s comment about PP. The video footage has been widely discredited as taken out of context and edited dishonestly, etc. And the material that’s being donated could yield some really significant and important research about all sorts of things! I hope this doesn’t come off preachy; I just wanted to give some insight. It’s so often that things get blasted into the media without it ever being substantiated or fact-checked and misinformation spreads like wildfire 🙁

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New August 5, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    The Planned Parenthood thing is abhorrent, I can’t. Totally agree about the full moon thing, it’s so weird! And YES to the quicksand e-card, I mean in every cartoon or movie it seems like there was imminent death by quicksand!

  • Reply Tracie August 5, 2015 at 5:05 pm

    That is such a fun link up! I need to put it in my planner, to make sure I remember! I may also try and borrow my mom’s big book of birthdays to see if I can creepily dissect my personality based on that info too!

  • Reply Robin August 5, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    I agree about college. I think anyone who is an adult should go if they WANT – people should not act like it is a requirement after you finish high school. I chose a major at random, just to shut my parents up. I slacked off a lot and didn’t care about my classes. Some people would say that me getting married at twenty-two was too young, yet they don’t understand why I could not decide on a life-long career at age seventeen.

  • Reply Laura August 6, 2015 at 8:43 am

    I so agree with you about the college thing. Also, OMG to someone graduating in 2012. I don’t even like to think that is possible. Everyone is as old as we are. As always, e-cards amazing. Love minions!!

  • Reply August 6, 2015 at 8:52 am

    i hated college but apparently not since i earned 4 degrees there. i just wanted to move away from my parents, hehe. i swear the full moon thing is real! people act crazier. and something is always off.

  • Reply Teh Megan August 6, 2015 at 9:27 am

    I didn’t realize it was a full moon on Friday but holy shit that would explain the crazy.
    As for the PP thing, I figure that it’s kinda like donating a body to science, I haven’t read on it because I just don’t want to tolerate the extremes right now, but I’d assume that you’d get the option to keep it/do a service/whatever happens. IDK. I just feel like the cause-shaming is just too much.
    Art of Racing in the Rain was a good book. It made me feel even more guilt for times that I get home late and Phil and Meri have to hold it or wait extra long on dinner (and because I know how uncomfortable/hangry I get, so is it fair to do that to the creatures that depend on me?).

  • Reply Tracy August 6, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    That is 100% true about college! I only had 6 years in between graduating and going back but even that short amount of time has made a HUGE difference. I definitely didn’t fully appreciate it or get as much out it the first time around as I am this time. I was 17 when I started and 20 when I finished (and 21 when I finished grad school) – just way too young, honestly!

  • Reply Katie August 11, 2015 at 9:41 am

    HAHAHA to the quicksand, it seemed so scary in the early 90’s! Like it would just pop up anywhere. Thank god I had the safety of jumping around on the furniture in my living room to save me from all the lava and quicksand in my house!
