Well, There's Really No Title for This.

It's been a while (a whole WEEK!?) since the internet has seen the joy of spar(lk)kle, sparkle, so I thought I'd enlighten you all with my latest deep thoughts. However, my latest deep thoughts have been relatively nonexistent during the past week so I'll just enlighten you with my regular thoughts. Good enough? OK!

1. (list form is better for regular thoughts) Is there a point in my life where I have to stop admitting that I love pop music? I don't know what it is about Lady Gaga, Usher, T-Swift (ugh, I know) and Beyonce, but I just can't help from stopping the radio scan when I hear their music. Maybe it's because I love to dance or because the lyrics are easy to belt or because the tunes are catchy. Whatever it is, I like it, and I'm not ashamed. But I'm still 22. Do I have to break up with Top 40 hits anytime soon? I really hope's been a healthy relationship.

1B. This is a side thought relating to the aforementioned topic: WHEN is Justin Timberlake coming out with a new album and/or single? My friend Courtney and I were discussing this over the weekend, and quite frankly, we're sick of waiting.

2. While the faux-spring we recently had here in Nebraska was absolutely lovely, (helloooo 70 degrees!) I'm starting to resent it now that the temperatures have dropped back into the teens. Why, why, WHY did you fake us out, weather?? I'm glad we could get our kicks for a week and a half but dropping us like an old flame is not cool. NOT cool.

3. Everyone should go to my dear friend Megan's blog and live vicariously through her travels through southeast Asia. She takes stunning photos, writes eloquently and really knows how to make a blog oh-so-delicious to scroll through. Basically, I want her life right now.

4. When I go forth from this place called Seward, Nebraska, I'll have accumulated quite the list of random skills, including but not limited to: stained glass window making, ceramic glaze mixing, check requisition filing, printmaking, clay rolling, Adobe Illustrator masking, proposal writing, website troubleshooting, customer support calling and holding, and figuring out how to keep my office 30 degrees warmer than the rest of campus. Now how should I fit this all on my resume?

5. I want to learn how to re-upholster furniture. I see so many do-it-yourself projects and furniture renovations that I love on that I can't help but dream of acquiring this talent. If anyone knows the first thing about this stuff, let me know. I'll make you a cake as a symbol of gratitude.

Ok, enough rambling. I hope this has amused you, inspired you, assisted in your procrastination efforts or helped you fall asleep. Whatever the case may be, I wish you many, many sparkles on your day. Great!


  1. oh, cry me a river (so much pun intended).

  2. We have discussed this, but I was write my own post, and make another glaze. And to find out what Adobe Illustrator masking is-I'll probably wait to find that one out from you because I do not feel like finding it out myself.

  3. I reupholstered a couch two summers ago! I'm not sure how much advice I can give long distance, but it's a lot more manageable than you think. You just need the room and an excellent staple gun. My mom took a class on it years ago, so she helped me out.
