This stuff is amazing! My face has been so broken out lately, so in an attempt to fix it I went to Walgreen's. I had researched all this stuff online right before I went, and when I got there they didn't have any of it. Queen Helene's Mint-Julep Masque was on sale (2 for $3.47) and because I have an obsession with mint smelling/flavored/cooling stuff, I decided to get it.

It works miracles. I have been using it twice a day for the past two days and my face is incredibly clearer. Not to mention, this stuff smells WONDERFUL! Anyway, for anyone needing a clear complexion fast, this is my new favorite product.

i've decided that if my career in medicine doesn't work out (which it will work out, i have faith and i have clocked in way too many hours towards it...plus i love medicine too much for it to not work out), but just in case, i am going to work for the CIA. i mean, that would be such a cool job. i would have to learn like 7 languages and how to be sneaky. i would have to train physically and mentally for the stress of the job. i would have to throw away my clumsiness and my big, dumb mouth. but dang, what a cool job. keeping a look out for bad guys and keeping people safe...hopefully.

démarreurs de conversation.

i should be studying (1) because i have a test in an hour & (2) because no one reads this anyway. but instead of studying i am on here...


  1. my favorite dr. seuss book is oh, the places you'll go! mostly because i like the idea of making goals and going places.

  2. the longest i've ever gone without sleep was a straigt 42 hours. i hallucinated. at one point i thought i was dead. and then when i finally got to sleep, i had terrible nightmares.

  3. my favorite sounding word is amygdala (definition: almond-shaped groups of neurons located deep within the medial temporal lobes of the brain in complex vertebrates, including humans; plays primary role in memory and emotional reactions.)

  4. my least favorite sounding word is crunchy.

  5. while i have never been stung by a bee/wasp/hornet/etc., i have eaten a bee before by accident. it landed on my airhead during recess in 3rd grade and i chomped it down.

  6. i am so afraid of heights that, to this day, i still cannot jump off of a swing.

  7. my favorite breakfast food is french toast, topped with powdered sugar and butter, and lathered in syrup...i haven't had it in over 2 years. dang.

  8. i absolutely love musicals. miss saigon, les miserables, west side story, chicago...definately a guilty pleasure.

  9. i like my food to touch. i'm not someone who needs it to be seperated.

  10. i hate vegetables. i cringe when i eat salads. if i could survive (and be healthy) by eating only meat...i totally would.

  11. i have big, ugly feet.

  12. i always have really dry cuticles...and i can't stand to leave them alone, i'm constantly picking at them.

  13. i really love the idea of being a wife and mother.

  14. i suck at cooking. really suck.

  15. i want to spend a full year outside of the united states, just living and learning about a different culture/way of life.

anyway, hope that didn't waste your time.

here is a good book to read:

p.s. i miss xanga.
