I've decided that every Monday I am going to pick a quote to either inspire the week or reflect upon last week or just because it is awesome...
I picked this quote because Thanksgiving break is next week. The week before a vacation is usually one people like to wish away, but it shouldn't be. You only have so many days to live, why not enjoy them all?
Now one of my favorite songs...
I Don't Wanna Wait-Rosi Golan

So I am not a big TV watcher, the fact that I don't have cable proves this point, but I have found a love for Hulu in the past few weeks and a love for a television show....The New Girl.I was already a fan of Zooey Deschanel's music, her voice is AMAZING and her songs are adorable, so enjoying her television show is no surprise. The character Jess reminds me of myself, we are both odd and quirky girls. People love shows they can relate to, so it makes total sense that I would enjoy the show. One of the main draws to the show is the character Nick.
I find his character to be so dreamy. He is cute and just has this undeniable "wanna curl up and cuddly with him"ness. Plan on seeing more of him in the future. *swoon*

So I went to an amazing talk tonight, which I plan on devoting a whole post to, but it inspired me to think more about social media. I've also been thinking about moving to Tumblr. So I created a Tumblr, http://qualmish.tumblr.com/ and also a Twitter. Depending on how it goes this blog might move to Tumblr or the Tumblr might just be my link and picture dump. If that is the case I plan on having a best of post once a week on to here. We will see what happens, but it should be awesome.

I kind of feel like I am cheating picking this question because honestly, I do not feel like an adult. I should feel like one by now. I live alone, pay all my own bills, drink adult beverages. I think part of it is because I am still in school, and I honestly don't do a lot of work for my stipend, and the work I do doesn't feel like adult work. I don't feel like I have a real job. I don't feel like an adult

I'm on of those lucky individuals who has a three day weekend every week, you would think that would lead to getting a lot done. It doesn't. This weekend like most others was spent doing one of my favorite activities sleeping. With my boyfriend working 3rd shift and me sleeping better with cuddles, on the weekends I try to stay up late so I can spend the day sleeping with him. So a lot of time is spent sleeping, 11-12 hours a day. Of course that leaves other time. This weekend it was spent looking at cute animal pictures and playing The Sims Medieval...which is a time sucking game. Once I start looking at cute animals any productivity is lost, I just spend my time squealing. So I decided to share....
More cute animal pictures, thanks to Cute Overload, and The Mummers mashup of Sleepyhead by Passion Pit after the jump.

I had to proctor TWO exams today...which was horrible. Proctoring is this horrible thing they make 1-3 year sociology graduate students do for large lecture classes. Our job is to watch for cheaters during tests, and it sucks. The reason it was so bad today was because the first exam I had to proctor for was at 10am, which is three hours earlier than I normally have to be on campus. I am not a morning person and having to get up early to watch people fill out a bubble sheet is not a good time. Oddly, proctoring is one of the times I feel like an actual graduate student, that and when I have to grade hideous papers. So far most of my graduate school experience has felt a lot like undergrad. Sit in classes, write papers, spend hours playing flash games while trying to motivate myself to get my work done. I don't know why I expected graduate school to feel so different, but I did. Maybe it will come when if my TA duties pick up and I become more involved in the department, or maybe once I am working on my dissertation and teaching intro sociology classes? Maybe I am just in denial, just like how I deny that I am an adult, despite the fact that I am living on my own, supporting myself. Who knows...

I got dragged out in the woods today by my boyfriend and his friend to go play with guns. I did not engage in the gun play, I just played in the woods. I don't want to say I had a good time, cause it was kind of boring, I guess I had a neutral time. I did take some pictures of the nature and an awesome creation I made out of shotgun shells.

People really fascinate me, which is why I study sociology. I think it is so interesting how much culture shapes people and how people become manipulated to the point that they act in ways that harm their own interests. The things that people believe. It is amazing.
So as I was working on my New Boyfriend playlist, I really wanted to make a playlist about how I was feeling and the songs that have been stuck in my head during October, so I did that. I started it before I finished the last playlist, which is why it is done so quickly. There are quite a few depressing songs in the playlist, even though I am not depressed. They just felt right. I am still going through a figuring out who I am process. The transition from being a college student living in the dorms to a graduate student living on my own has been interesting. These songs might seem like a hodgepodge, but I think that is because that is what I am right now.
