So I have been a little down since my dear friend Brutus died...I always liked to say hello to him when I woke up every morning or when I got home from a long day. He was a sweet fishy. And yes, I really did say hello to him every time I saw him. We were tight. But because I have been mourning his death and missing him dearly, my cute boyfriend decided to suprise me with a little present...
Aren't they so cute? And they are such awesome pets...they are little froggies that live in the water (which I only have to change once every three months) and I only have to feed them twice a week...fantastic!
They were just what I needed and I hope Brutus is happy in fishy heaven. Thanks Christopher!
I'm the worst! I wait to do everything until the very last second. It is awful. Remember how I said that this little "get to know me" thing was going to take longer than 30 days? Ya...today should really be day 13, but because of this little habit of mine, we are on day 4. :)
But hey, it all seems to work out somehow, right? I've survived this long!

Many of you may already know quite a number of these things, but even those who know me best will probably learn something new!
I hope you enjoy learning a little more about Lauren and getting to know me on a bit deeper level, but if you don't then poop on you. Just kidding. But really. I love you. :)
ps. this thing may extend beyond 30 days seeing as I don't post every day...new goal? maybe. probably not though. I still love you.
You know that in between state when you are sleeping, but still somewhat conscious and aware of things? I was laying in my bed this morning and was asleep, but aware enough to realize that the inside of my nose itched really bad.
You know how when you are sleeping you don't realize how sudden or intense your movements are? So I'm laying there and go to itch my nose because it was driving me crazy, right?
You know the feeling of a runny nose when stuff feels like it is just falling out of your nose? So I itched, felt a slight pinch/pain, and then the flood.
Pretty sure I gave MYSELF a bloody nose.
So then I had to get up out of my nice slumber and take care of it...ridiculous.
Caution: drowsy itching may result in bloody noses.
I am a list maker. I have to make lists in order to feel that my life is somewhat organized and so that I don't forget the million things that are running through my head.
My lists usually consist of notes reminding me to pay my tithing, go to the store, buy shower or birthday presents, do random things like clean Brutus's tank, and most importantly, I make TONS of lists to remind me about assignments that need to be done on specific days.
Sounds a little OCD, I know, but that is not the problem I am talking about.
The problem is that although I make all of these lists to help me stay on top of things...it usually NEVER happens. I procrastinate EVERYTHING and end up doing huge assignments the night before they are due.
It's awful. I know.
Take this weekend for example...I had a huge list of homework I needed to get done over the weekend...did I do any of it? Absolutely not.
That is why I have spent the past four hours trying to finish it all before I have to turn it in tomorrow. Sad part is that I am not even halfway done.
Wish me luck in trying to ACTUALLY DO the things I put on my lists from now on!
