You and Me & Chasing Little G


Life Shouldn't Be A Checklist

Sabra GilbertComment

Junior year has been crazy.
Like wanna just curl up in bed, sleep for the next 3 semesters, crazy.

When your life starts to boil down to an overflowing checklist that grows faster than anything can get done on it, thats extremely bad.

And what are the things that get left on the checklist WAAAYYY longer than they should.

Devotional Time.
Dates with Simeon.
Wedding Planning.
Basically, anything I actually enjoy doing with my time.

Luckily, next semester I'm only going to be taking 16 credits instead of 17, which doesn't sound like a whole lot, but I don't plan on taking as many high caliber classes.
Two of my classes, I expect to be quite fun!

With debate season starting next weekend, I also hope that I can spend a little bit more time being able to blog as Simeon will be gone most weekends for the next 3 to 4 months.
Did you know that I missed my own Blog-iversary on Thursday?
Yep, as of October 31st, I have been blogging on this little space for a year.
Now one thing I have been working on for 2ish months, is this whole new redesign completely done by muah!
I"m getting my new editorial calender all set up with some big goals for this space and Becoming A Gilbert.

I want to jump back into being passionate about something.
I want my room to be spotless
I want my homework done, so I can spend a night a week just being with Simeon and doing something crazy and fun.

College Life Inspiration

Sabra GilbertComment
Ever just feel burnt out?
Like there is just too much to do and you don't really see the point in doing it anyway.

Well, I am defiantly in that kind of a rut.
I don't wanna blog.
I don't wanna do my homework.
I kinda wanna wedding plan.
I mostly just wanna curl up in bed and cuddle and sleep.
That's it.

Every once in a while, I need a kick to the rear that gets me motivated to do everything that I want to and need to do to succeed in what I want to do.

So this week I made an inspiration board of why I am putting myself through years of schooling. Working two jobs. Trying to get internships on top of that.

Why do I work so hard?

Because I wanna wake up in the morning and know that I get to go take care of God's creatures. I may be shoveling poop and doing mediocre things for the most part, but I know I'm going to love every second of bonding and caring for any and all the animals in the zoo that I can possibly be given the responsibility for.

I want to maybe open up an animal reservation some day and take care of a few big cats that are my own. That, since they cannot be returned to the wild after a life in captivity, can live as free of a life as possible. I want to help bring back such a wonderful species and fight to keep them from extinction.

I want to do my small part.
To make a large impact on a child, adult, or animal that could someday help change how zoos and animals in general are viewed.

Ok, and maybe sometimes I just wanna cuddle with a baby animal. But who doesn't? 
Those things are all so freaking adorable!

These are My Confessions

Sabra GilbertComment

First off, CONGRATS to Paige and Samantha for their link-up running for 10 weeks! WOW! :)

Now, I must confess . . .

. . .  I don't wanna be a good blogger this week.
. . . I don't really want to go to work either.
. . . I kinda just wanna cuddle and watch Dr. Who all day. Or Supernatural.
. . . That I tried to sign my best friend up to be on the Bachelor with Juan Pablo.
. . . I just used an accent when I said Juan Pablo.
. . . my room is a mess.
. . . my fish tank needs to be cleaned.
. . . I have been a terrible organizer this summer.
. . . I don't want school to start.
., . . ugh

Dork Alert

Sabra GilbertComment
So I don't know if you guys know this (my family reading this sure does!), but I am a HUGE dork!

Between bouts of extreme hyperness, my hiccups, and my laugh, oh boy, I can, for sure, be called a dork. (wow that was a lot of commas)

I can barely control my laughter once I get going, though I'm told that my laugh is very contagious and can make anyone laugh. That is, if you aren't trying to figure out where the extremely obnoxious seal is in the room. . . .

My hiccups. . . . sound like a puppy getting stepped on.

No Joke.

I scream out windows with Lindy.

I fall off of my bed trying to be cute. . .  obviously I failed.

I can't dance. But I Love to dance.
I have a strange booty dance that I do when I'm extremely hyper/excited about something.
Lindy has failed many times to copy this dance though she trys very hard.
She just doesn't understand how a dance move can be so awkward.

I win.
I am insanely competitive when it comes to little games. Between My Cows or a game of Risk, if I decide that I want to win, I am obnoxious until I am.

I just thought it was important for all of you to get a glimpse of how I really am.
I haven't really come up with anyway to show you guys how much of a dork that I am in other posts.
So many of them are soooo serious! Blah, I'm really not a super serious person.

Though being such an OCD organizer, most people would think that I am. . .but I'm not.
I promise you. :)

Confessions {3}

Life is But a Stream of Thoughts

I confess that that one song Confessions by the one rapper always pops into my head when I start to write these.

I confess that I need to go to the post office and mail a pile of things.

I confess that my room is a disaster.

I confess that I woke up at 7 AM and that is considered really early.

I confess that I plan on baking a lot today.

I confess that I enjoy doing my own blog design instead of someone else doing it for me. Pride thing.

I confess to dying to use the note pads that Samantha got me in my Hello Box gift, but not finding a reason to yet.

I confess to getting distracted by Fast and Furious 4 last night instead of writing blog posts.

I confess to also having taken a nap for an hour yesterday instead of tending to this blog.

I confess that, sometimes, I have a life outside of this blog. :)

Have a great Wednesday! 
Don't forget to link your confessions with Paige and Samantha!!
