We’re Like A Really Small Gang…

“Best friends are the people you can do anything and nothing with and still have the best time.”

 Dear Best Friend,

First let me say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You’re 22 today and ready to start this wonderful new chapter! You are going to go far my dear!

Second, you should know that you’re one of those people who make life better just by being in it and I’m glad I get to call you my best friend. I know that we can have our bad moments but for all those moments we get to each other there are three times as many great times we have, if not more! We are the best of the best ♥

It’s pretty funny how when we first met we didn’t realize how close we would get, we were simply acquaintances who shared a mutual friend. Then one day the universe looked at us and decided we were more than just simple acquaintances and somehow we became the best friends we are today! I love the fact that you’re always there for me, when I’m having boy troubles or stupid family drama, I know you’re just a call or text away. I love that you accept all my weirdness and just go with it when I say random things out of the blue, like “I wonder what it’s like to be a bird?” I love when we have our “adulting” days. And I find it extremely funny that many people have questioned our friendship lol remember when we went shopping for your dress and I had the bow tie on?!

Our friendship is a unique one, we can be girly and boyish and crazy and more. We can sit in our pj’s all day reading, or on Tumblr, not saying a word and still have a great time. We can have show marathons and crazy conversations no one would understand. We can communicate with just looks. We take “midnight” adventures for food. You are the “she” to my “nanigans” and I don’t know what I’d without you.

We still have our whole lives ahead of us, dreams we’re going to turn into reality, goals into achievements, and so much more. We have big events coming up too, like college graduation. I’ll be there for you every step of the way just like I know you’ll be there for me. I hope that your day is as amazing as you are girly and I’ll see you soon!

Love always,

Felie Fel 

P.S. Thank you for being my best friend, I love you so much! I hope we’re best friends even after we die because then we can be ghost friends and walk through walls and scare people! (Or we can be cross roads demons together as long as my mom doesn’t find out lol)

She Is…

“Some women are lost in the fire, Some women are built from it.”

* * * * *

She is…

more than you know, more than you care to believe.

She is…

a paradox, a jack of all trades, a creature of myth, a diamond in the rough.

She is…

stronger than you think, never staying down when she falls.

She is…

the light in the dark, the ember in the ashes, the sanity in the madness.

She is… (more…)

And My Heart Belongs To…

“Only you can set my heart on fire…”

That one beatiful holiday that celebrates the joyous feeling of love and romance is right around the corner. Yes, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day, but you knew that already. I’m going to guess that many of you have some big plans that day. 

Valentine’s Day was one of the best holidays growing up. As kid everyone was your valentine and you always had some little classroom party to look forward to at the end of the day. But now? No more Valentine parties, that’s for sure. 

My plans this Valentine’s Day are to, unfortunately, study for all my upcoming tests and maybe binge watch a couple of movies with my roommate. We recently watched Pride & Prejudice and oh my god let me tell you how awesome and romantic that movie is. It’s perfection in a nut shell and Mr. Darcy, well Mr. Darcy is another story for another time…

With that said, here’s a sneak peak on ways to my heart:

  1. Books, plain and simple. I live and breath books, they are the best way to my heart. 
  2. Coffee or tea, either or is fine by me. Sipping this hot beverage any time of day is relaxing and something I’ll always love. 
  3. Clichés. I know that’s so lame, but being a hopeless romantic makes me love most of those cheesy clichés we all dislike so much. 
  4. Staying in and having a movie day! It’s fun and romantic, plus I’ve recently learned that cuddle helps keep you healthy. 
  5. Shooting, take me out to the shooting range. It’s almost as great as taking me to a bookstore!

Those are just a few ways to my heart. Now tell me how to get to yours!

Lots of Love,

Felie Fel ?

“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the imagination, flight to the imagination, and life to everything” – Plato

Who here hates moving? The packing and the driving and the unpacking and the reorganizing? Just the first two drive me bonkers, the last two aren’t so bad.

So recently, very recently actually, I signed a lease with a friend and moved to a small townhouse much closer to school. I’m very excited! I no longer have to wake up before the sun. An hour more of sleep makes a big difference.

So I was able to move all in one day and all in one trip. My darling cousin was kind enough to to offer his truck for all my big stuff; bed, desk, drawers, two bookshelves, you know the important stuff. (Though we were not able to get the box spring upstairs when it came time to unload everything.)

My Mom’s little Xterra held all my clothes and blankets because well they just wouldn’t fit in my car because my car was packed tight with all my books. Seriously, look:  (more…)

Get Stuff Done.

Well the first week of school was a success!! I’ve my planner and calendar ready to be filled with assignments. This semester I’m on campus three days a week, two whole days and one half day. So far (yes I know the semester just started) I’m loving my classes! How are you liking your classes? Plan on dropping any?

So I have a few goals for this semester, not just for the new year ? They’re pretty simple and straight forward. Here they are:


Creativity is…

“Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence.” – Osho

Creativity is many things: making mistakes, expression, having fun, inventing, experimenting, and so much more. It can be anything you want it to be. It can be created in so many ways; through art, music, books, clothes, and more. It brings beauty into this catastrophic world. It sends a message. It can be interpreted in a various amount of ways. It. Can. Be.

How do you express your creativity? I express my creativity the same way I express who I am.

I love sketching, though it has been quite a while since I picked up a pencil. I relish in the way my pencils flow across the pages of my sketch book. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment I get when I get the picture that’s stuck in my head onto a piece of paper, it’s a feeling that I can’t really describe. Whether I am happy with the outcome or not, I like to surround myself with my creations. I pin as much as I can onto my walls in my bedroom (even the ones that are incomplete), the others are kept in the safety of my sketch books on my small bookshelf. My best work comes when I’m listening to music, feeling strongly about something (or my emotions are just out whack), after reading a marvelous book, or even sometimes when I’m terribly bored. Now I don’t like showing people my artwork, but that’s okay because being creative doesn’t mean everyone has to see it and those that do, well those people are pretty special.


University vs. Community College

I’m just about to finish my new journey (AKA my first semester) at ASU and while I love it let me just say that it is nothing like CAC. Community college and university are on two very different levels, not that it’s a bad thing. I came into ASU thinking it was going to be just like CAC, just a tad bit harder, boy was I wrong..


The Perfect Way To End A Summer..

What’s a more perfect way to end the summer than a trip to Vegas? With two of your best friends? And you’re all finally twenty-one?! So let me tell you lovies how awesome this past weekend was…


Fallen by Lauren Kate

“Then there was nothing, nothing at all.” – Fallen

Let me start by saying that Fallen was a sinfully delicious read. The way light and darkness are twisted together is alluring, captivating the mind to take a deeper look into this twisted love story. Covers always draw me in first and this cover was not a disappointing; sexy and creepy, with a one word title was perfection for this book.


Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini

“You’re in terrible danger.” – Juliet Proctor

I found the idea/story line for Trial By Fire interesting and unique; it was something new and it was something I was looking for in a book, I just didn’t realize it until I opened the pages. Once I started this adventure, I couldn’t put it down. Page after page, my mind couldn’t stop thinking ‘what’s going to happen next?!‘ I think that’s when you know it’s going to be a great read, because this book is one of my new favorites!
