That Moment When Toilet Water Is On Your Side of The Dorm Room

If there was one moment that I could go back to and prevent from happening, it would be sophomore year after Thanksgiving break. After unpacking clothes, I went into the bathroom only to notice there was less water in the toilet than usual. I decided to flush the toilet to make sure it was working properly. That was a huge mistake. The water begin to rise and soon the water started to flow out of the toilet.

 I ran into the room and grab my laptop and place it on my bed because the water was flowing into my dorm room. The water would not stop. I called my mom for help, and she told me to turn the knob on the side of the toilet to stop the water. It worked! The water stop and went everywhere in my dorm. The water was up to my ankles. The weirdest part about the incident was the water was on my side of the dorm and not my roommate's. Her side of the room was closer to the bathroom than mines, but not a drop of water touch it.

To make a long story short, I spent three hours cleaning up the mess. The room took forever to dry, and some of my books were wet.  The only good thing that came from the incident was my knowledge about toilets. I learned not to flush a toilet when the water is low.  If you ever experience toilet water rising, don't run out of the bathroom like I did. Turn the knob on the side of the toilet to stop it!

Seriously, there should be classes in college that teaches the basics of toilets and cars.

Someday my Fitz will come

Have you ever made a post that never got to exactly where you wanted it, but couldn't bring yourself to delete it? I wrote this post before the last season of Scandal aired, and I honestly still feel the same way. So although it maybe a little late, here are my thoughts on Olivia Pope and President Fitzgerald.

I love almost everything about Scandal. The unpredictable story line, the characters, the clothes and more.  But if the there is one thing that I hate about this show that usually gets me side eyed by fellow gladiators is the Fitz and Liv relationship. I thought that having their relationship was just going to be a story builder to the plot that would help  Liv's character evolve, but didn't see it as being Liv's biggest pitfall. The fact that she's sprung on the president is her Achilles heel. A powerful, beautiful, attorney running things in DC but just can't seem to tear herself away from Fitz. And I don't know why. He's not good looking (even though Mr.Pres has abs for days), he doesn't treat her or anyone in his family right, and some of the love scenes between the two look more like rape than raging desire.

Sistar's "Touch My Body" Maybe My Summer Anthem

Remember when I went on a rant about not finding a summer anthem. I was so upset about not finding the one perfect summer song that I settle for songs in the past.  I should have not spoken too soon because Sistar "Touch My Body," lift me from my summer slump. When I first heard the song, I just knew I wouldn't like it, but then the song continue. I slowly started to fall for the song and the video.

 The video is colorful, which is perfect for the summer. The girls are dancing around a pool. Sistar maybe like me, their afraid to get their hair wet, so they dance around a pool to look cool. If only my summers were half as fun as this music video. Anyway, all the girls look amazing, even Hyolyn. I don't know why, Hyolyn always looked kinda mean to me, but the girl can sing.  I love their outfits and the choreography was simple but cute.

What is Your Summer Anthem?

Jessie Ware's "Tough Love" M/V


 When I first discovered Jessie Ware I wanted to blog about her instantly. The only problem, her song "Wildest Moments" was too old to do a blog spotlight on. So I had to wait patiently until  she release newer music to talk about her awesomeness. Although I did feel special when I heard "Wildest Moments" play on Iyanla Fix My Life commercial and on Being Mary Jane. "Tough Love" is a sweet tune. I'm glad that she's sticking with the R&B sound because it really suits her. Jessie Ware will take you back to Sade. In fact I remember reading a comment saying she sounds like Sade 2.0. The beat of the song reminds me of a Prince 80's music production.  The song will be feature on her sophomore album Tough Love. 

Tell me your thoughts of the song in the comment section

Are You Thirsty, or Nah?

This new epidemic of Thirst has ruined friendships and stopped a few great relationships from forming. People are scared to approach each other people for fear they'll be called thirsty by their friends, or love interest meaning people are too afraid to even make any move. It seems being thirsty is any action that shows you're interested in someone from smiling before you speak to saying hello. If everyone is scared to make the first move, how the hell are people are going to get together? First off let's take a look at what Urbandictionary.com describes as thirst:

A form of lust of or want of members of the opposite sex. This term can refer to both males and females
Someone who is desperate. A thirsty person is constantly looking for a person to date.

For the sake of the matter, let's just stick with the latter description, which describes a thirsty person as desperate. This person is usually seen "doing the most" to get another person's attention either in real life or online. Since the line between showing interest in someone and being thirsty is often confused, we thought it would be a good idea to show you a few examples of what is and is not Thirst. Welcome to "Thirsty, or Nah". 

Warning: Some of the following pictures are NSFW.

Instagram Crimes
Instagram is the top leading social site for thirst related offenses and its obvious why. Men and women post pictures in angles or situationss that showcase their body in a sexualized manner, manytimes on purpose, which elicit desperate reactions from strangers. This occurrence is commonly called a thirst trap, a tool both men and women use to gain more attention online. We'll demonstrate the common actions on instgram and separate them from thirsty to nah.
Its not a crime to follow someone you like on Instagram. Go ahead and follow him, like a few pictures, and even send a comment or two. These are all normal and don't equal to thirst and can maybe even be conversation starters. If anything, it will move him to remember your name and check out your page.

Thirst Verdict: Nah

Women Crush Wednesday and Man Crush Monday are days instagram users take to shout out their friends and crushes on instagram. This is probably one of the only acceptable times to actually post another persons pic on your stream and let everyone know you think they are gorgeous. Just be sure not to take notes from Champaigne Papi (Drake) and limit your post to only ONE post of that person for the day, and for a few months because multiples will make you look like a stalker. Unless you're already dating/married them.

The Inbox: 
This is relatively new to Instagram, but the thought remains the same. A lot of people feel free to unleash their inner naughty girl/guy when in boxing others because they think everything will be private. Sending him nudes in his inbox,and writing explicit messages such as this under his pictures is thirst. Do not stoop to this level of dehydration and keep your comments (and nudes) to yourself!

Thirst Verdict: Dehydration

Are there any actions of thirst we missed and need to add when it comea to Instagram? Have you has any encounters with thirsty?

Cool Down Montgomery

This steamy heat is the perfect excuse to go dig into some cool sweet treats. Of course you can always stay inside and bury yourself in store bought ice cream, but if you ever find yourself out and about in Montgomery, here are a few places you can go to to cool down.

Nancy's Italian Ice
This is one of my favorite places to get a sweet treat in Montgomery. Located on Vaughn Road, right across from AMC theaters, this sweet spot serves a variety of Italian Ice for the city to enjoy. You can either get a (Italian Ice topped with ice cream) and they come in flavors like Tiger's Blood, Mango, Lemonade and more. This place gets busy quick, so if you have time while in Montgomery, make sure to stop by.

Smoothies n Things
Save yourself from the heat downtown by stopping into this local cool spot for some great mixed smoothies. They have many options of drinks and you can mix and match flavors to your liking. They now have happy hour Wednesdays and Thursday nights were drinks are half price, featuring their lemon zest flavor!

Just kickin' It

The Master, me, Carina, and one of the student instructors
I've always wanted to learn martial arts when I was a kid. I loved action movies and fighting games and wished I could be as strong and skilled as the characters I saw on my TV Screen

That's why I was under excited that UIP was going to be taking a Taekwondo class. After breakfast, we all lined up in the lobby to walk to the Ulsan gym. We were given a pair of workout robes to wear, bit there weren't enough for everyone. Mine were too big while some of the taller students had robes that were too short. I was all set to grab my camera and get some great picks of me in action. We all gathered in the middle of the gym I and I thought that we were going to be introduced to the students and master of the program. Instead, we were seated on the floor and sat to watch them do some demonstrations.
