Grab a big cup of coffee sit in a your favorite chair put your feet up and lets take a coffee break together. I've been wanting to write a sit down chatty type blog for a while now. Recently I came up with the idea for Coffee Break, a new series of blog posts where I sit down *of course with a cup of coffee* and chat about everything from movies to my personal life. Today's coffee break almost didn't happen. This afternoon I went in to make a cup of coffee that's when I discovered that I was out of my Coconut Milk Coffee-Mate creamer. What did I do about it? I did what I do about everything... I tweeted about it haha. Coffee-Mate understood my problem and they very kindly decided to help me out.
Although I doubt they are reading this shout out to Coffee-Mate for being such a great company and helping out the first post for Coffee Break. All in all its been a pretty great Sunday the Seahawks won, I got my coffee creamer, and I got an email determining that all of my classes next quarter are going to be in the same building and Derek returned to Teen Wolf haha. It really is the little things in life. I hope everyone else is enjoying their Sunday as much as I am. Keep an eye out for more Coffee Breaks coming really soon. Speaking of coming soon did you guys see that blog post? If not click here.

If you have been following this blog for long you will know about my monthly subscription box unboxings, where I would take my monthly *or by monthly* subscription boxes from soap and home goods company Fortune Cookie Soap *one of my all time favorite companies. I have been buying products from them for years.* and book subscription company OwlCrate. Recently I have gotten a few questions from a handful of people who have been wondering why I stopped writing those blog posts. Truth is I loved doing those for you guys, but unfortunately substitution boxes aren't the most costly things. The price of each subscription box helps pay for the items inside the boxes. I haven't had the money lately to be able to spend on something like this, and its not that simple just to contact a company rave about their product and then get sponsored for your page. I wish it was that easy haha but in reality its a lot harder. I promise though that once I am able to start spending money on something like that again I will let you all know and I will definitely start doing unboxings on here again. Until then please be patient.

I'm sorry I haven't been on here for the last few days guys. About half way threw the day on Tuesday I was struck with a massive migraine. I felt super sick and just the touch of light caused my whole head to pound. I spent about 2 days just sleeping it off. As a result of that I unfortunately wasn't able to post days 29 and 30 of my daily challenge. Day 29 was whats in my pocket... I wasn't able to get a picture for that day. Day 30's challenge was a picture of myself 30 days later. I wasn't up for taking any sorts of pictures or even looking at my phone for that mater. Fortunately before my migraine got too bad on the 29th I was able to take a couple quick selfies to show off my new hair color on Facebook and Instagram, so I'm going to recycle one of those as my day 30.
That's right the blonde is complacently gone. I'm still kind of in shock myself on the fact that I actually went threw with this. I had mentioned to just a couple people that I wanted to go red *I have been a strawberry color once before.* and in a split last minute decision decided to go for it before I changed my mind. The response from friends and family about the change has been good so far. I personally am still trying to get used to the color. I am however going to keep it red for the time being, but the blonde will make its classic return in the end. I know, I know but I love my blonde hair. It always comes back, as cheesy as it sounds I actually feel more me when I'm blonde. Enough about my hair.
Lets move on to some other things. School is starting up again in about 2 weeks. I'm really looking forward to the classes I will be taking this quarter. I'm taking an English class, an acting class *that I can write off as my humanities credit, You have to love those loopholes.* and an intro to computer programming class. That last one has absolutely nothing to do with my major. I love working on computer things and this class sounded really interesting to me. I know it's probably going to be one of those classes that takes up a lot of time and maybe a bit of stress, but its something new and I'm looking forward to it.
I'm currently on the hunt for a second job as well. Fingers crossed I find one really soon, that will *I hope* take a lot of stress and anxiety off of my shoulders, but that's neither here nor there and you don't want to hear about it anyway. I'm going to jump off of here and work on a few things for a couple of the other sections on the website. I hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer, and that you're not melting too much. I will try my best to come on here and do more chatty type blogs really soon.
