The Rules: Always post the rules. Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you. Write 11 new ones. Tag 11 people. Actually tell them you tagged them. ——————————————— Questions: 1. why is your favorite band/artist your favorite? I think mayday Parade is still one of my favorite bands, mostly because while I was in my period of darkness, the music was exactly what I was thinking and how I was feeling. It felt better knowing that other people had been in that dark part of their own minds before me.
2. have you ever had an out-of-body experience? Nope.
3. what’s your favorite thing to do when you’re drunk or high? I tend to hug and kiss and tell people I love them a lot when I’m drunk. I love watching Spongebob when I’m high.
4. your most recent tweet. "One can never have ‘too many’ pictures of the beach or of JMU." I stand by this whole-heartedly.
5. what’s your favorite type of concert venue? I think I love the small, personal ones. I’ve seen the X Ambassadors in a small area at JMU (in TDU, for those of you who know of the campus) and in the Jewish Mother at Hilltop in Virginia Beach. Both were amazing experiences. So was the Norva seeing them.
6. how long does it take you to finally put clothes on after you shower? I normally shower in the morning right before school, so I normally throw them on pretty quickly.
7. what were you doing at 10:45 this morning? Driving to Claire’s house after buying my formal dress, actually.
8. what’s the most awkward situation you’ve ever been in? As of recently? This is how this text convo went - Lexi: I’m going to drop business and just become a theatre or English major. Something I like. This test is going to kill me. Dan: That awkward moment when Lexi (internally): FREAKS OUT WHAT DO YOU MEAN Dan: You’re dropping COB Lexi (thinking he’s kidding, hopefully): UH. What do you mean? Haha
9. how would you react to seeing your face from another person’s perspective? "She’s nice and all, but she could lose some weight…" Literally, though.
10. if you could be the opposite sex for a day, who would you have sex with? I don’t know. I’d say I would try to have sex with Jennifer Lawrence, but I doubt that would actually happen.
11. the most played song in your library? I’m not sure. I imagine it’s something by Mayday Parade, though.
My questions now!
1. Do you hiccup a lot?
2.Team Apple or Team Droid?
3. Opinion on Twitter and having one?
4. Do you fall in love easily?
5. 5 biggest turn-ons?
6. Do you like anons messaging you?
7. Are you in a fraternity/sorority? (If you’re not in college/your college doesn’t offer Greek life: Could you ever imagine yourself in a fraternity or sorority?)
8. Final verdict/opinion on Greek life, in all honesty?
9. Do you believe in stereotypes?
10. What’s been on your mind a lot lately?
11. What’s something you wish someone would actually ask you?
Internships are the building blocks of your résumé. Apply to them. Meet people.
Choose a degree that is relevant to the real world. Minor in History if you love it so much.
Everyone knows how to use Microsoft Office. Putting it under the “Skills” section of your résumé is not impressive.
See the world. This is the only time you have in your life to spend months in a foreign country. Take advantage of your lack of responsibility to travel.
99.9% of employers will never look at your transcript. A 4.0 GPA will not land you a job. Good interpersonal skills might.
No employer cares whether you were on the executive board of your fraternity or sorority or other campus organization. Serve the organization because you love it, not simply to use it as space-filler on your résumé.
Proofread everything. Twice. Or else no one will believe that you’re “detial-oriented.”
You have four (or five) years to make something of yourself. Use that time wisely.
Go out with your friends on a Tuesday night despite having a test on Wednesday. The test won’t matter in ten years, but your friendships will.
Do not expect the college senior to fall in love with you after you sleep together. Actually, just don’t sleep together. This will not end well.
Really get to know your professors. Use office hours to your advantage. You never know what doors they can open for you.
Graduate school is rarely a good idea, especially if you’re only using it to delay the real world for a few years. The more money you make now, the less debt you’ll have later.
Realize that you will be in debt until you’re forty. Make peace with this early.
One bad grade won’t ruin your life. Get over yourself.
Beware of credit cards. No matter what they say, money isn’t free.
Don’t burn bridges. You never know when you might need help from someone.
Eat good food. Nothing will make you feel worse than six straight nights of Ramen.
Buy a plunger before you actually need said plunger. Just trust me on this one.
Press save. It will keep you from having that 4:00am mental breakdown.
All-nighters will not help you learn the material. Budget time throughout the day to study so that you can actually sleep before the final exam.
Use a condom. No one wants that “I’m late” text.
Work during the summers. Employers want someone with real-life experience.
Call your mom once a week. She wants to stay involved in your life, and a twenty-minute phone conversation won’t kill you.
You have four years to learn your alcohol limit. This will save you from puking at the office Christmas party.
The college cafeteria will make you fat. So will alcohol. Be careful about what you’re putting into your body.
Find a few hours each week to work out. Cardio is great stress relief.
So is sex. Booty calls are sometimes necessary. Don’t beat yourself up for it in the morning.
Learn to cook. Eating out is expensive and unhealthy. A few basics can last you a long time.
Take pictures. Not everything has to be posted to Instagram, but you will want to have these memories documented.
Volunteer. Not because you have to, but because you want to. The Humane Society always needs people to play with the animals.
Learn how to budget. Your parents won’t be around to give you money forever.
Buy shower shoes. Use them. Save yourself from foot fungus.
Beer is expensive. Buy vodka.
Interviews are nerve-wracking. Practice with a friend before you go.
Find good references. They can be the difference between being offered your dream job and being turned down.
It’s okay to turn down your first job offer to wait for a better one. Have faith in yourself.
If you’re treated like a slave at your internship, it’s okay to leave. Find a company that sees your worth.
Learn how to code HTML. This is an invaluable skill.
Also learn Photoshop. Every company in the world needs someone who can design a poster.
Take a couple classes just for fun. There’s a difference between smart and educated.
Know your priorities. Stick to them.
Start searching for a job a year before you graduate. It takes time to find something you want.
Apply for jobs you may not be completely qualified for. You may be the only applicant.
Don’t get too discouraged when you fail at something. Lay in bed for two days. Cry. Then get back up and start living again.
Everyone has something to teach you. Listen to them.
Make mistakes, but be sure to learn from them.
Textbooks are expensive and you will never need them again. Rent, don’t buy.
No one will ever care how wasted you were last night. They saw it first hand. Shut up.
No one is responsible for you except you. Think twice before you do something.
Don’t think that these have to be the best four years of your life. Life after graduation is pretty awesome too.
The only person on my facebook I have never met personally (but goes to my university AND follows me on tumblr) is poking me. I don’t know what to say or do except poke him back. IF YOU SEE THIS, JUST KNOW THAT THIS ISN’T GOING TO END ANYTIME SOON.
3. Why I love my best friend: I think I love my best friend, because at some point in time, I loved him as more than a friend. I don’t think I do to the same degree anymore, but it was there, nevertheless. He’s a wonderful human being. He’s caring and intelligent, really talented, and really attractive. We just got closer and closer in high school. He never failed to make me laugh and smile like a little school girl. He’s just…great. I wish I had more to say, but honestly, if I could pinpoint exactly why I love him, then the mystery of it all would fade away and it wouldn’t be the same.
13. Life goal(s): To be a successful actress sometime after I’m out of college. To be respected for my art and the sacrifices I may have had to make for it. To be the type of person people can look up to and respect. To be a wonderful sorority woman, rather than a stereotypical one. To be someone who is kind, caring, and authentic about it. To fall in love with someone because they’re the right person, rather than because it was the right time and I was lonely. To be a mother, and a great one at that.
19. Middle name: Lyne. Half of my mother’s first name.
8. Top 5 turn-ons: 1. If you can make me laugh, you’ve got me hooked (btw, it’s not too difficult to make me laugh, I promise) 2. If you have a perfect or almost perfect smile, then you are that much more attractive 3. Neck kisses; case closed 4. Bow ties; if the case wasn’t closed before, it is now 5. If you can laugh with me in bed for bumping my head or doing something awkward, I will probably fall for you.
10. Biggest turn-ons: Besides the 5 I just listed? Knowing how to put on a condom (properly); when you notice little details about me; when you actually ask questions about weird things/nuances/quirks that you’ve noticed about me; when conversation flows really well between us; when you’re just a really really really nice person.
17. A fact about my life: I tend to simultaneously doubt myself and believe in myself. (It doesn’t exactly make sense, but if you knew me, you’d understand.)
16. Favorite movie: I’m not a big movie-watcher, honestly. I haven’t finished it yet, but we watched about 90% of “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Something about how Will Smith’s character NEVER gives up trying to make things better for his character and Jaden’s character just struck me. It’s just really eye-opening, especially with my past and all.

“One day you’re going to see her holding hands with someone who took your chance. She won’t even notice you because she’s too busy laughing with the stupid jokes he makes. And it will burn your heart seeing that beautiful smile on her face and realizing that you’re not the reason anymore. And then it will finally hit you: it was her, it was always her.”—(via moonsads)
