Grey's Anatomy- Final's Week

Finals week is rapidly approaching and I am NOT excited about it. I mean honestly who is excited for final's week. I am, however, super excited for Christmas break. While I was diligently procrastinating studying I decided to watch Grey's Anatomy. There's an episode where the intern doctor's begin studying for the Board's. I couldn't help but relate to the episode on some level. Here's a clip...
After I watched this episode I realized that there are so many quotes from Grey's Anatomy that could apply to Finals week. Hopefully you fellow college students can receive some humor from this post!
This one is seriously my life right now. I am trying desperately to get through a day at a time.
If you aren't scared about finals week then I might hate you a little bit. 
Anyone else want to punch the people in class who act like they don't have a care in the world?
60% of the time I have no clue what I'm doing.
Sleep doesn't exist in my life right now because I can't stop freaking out.
I mean... I'm starting to feel like a crazy person. It probably has something to do with the lack of sleep.

So, for all of you fellow college students who are also approaching finals week, I wish you good luck.

Netflix has become a huge part of people's lives. It has definitely made being lazy much easier for myself. I LOVE Netflix.

I thought I would make life a little easier for you guys and post my go to shows that I love. Also I am very well aware that half of these shows are teen dramas but I don't care... They are very addicting!

Fondue Friday

My friends and I have began doing Fondue Friday. Which as I'm sure you can figure out is us eating fondue on a Friday. It is so awesome! I love fondue. Probably because I LOVE cheese and chocolate covered strawberries. While fondueing (yes I made that a verb) I couldn't help but think about this lovely clip from Glee.

The Office- Jim and Pam

Rachel Abramson was kind enough to share her story with me. I loved reading about how her relationship is like Jim and Pam's. I hope you all will enjoy as well. Her blog is a super inspirational blog about body image and learning to love the human beneath your skin. I strongly encourage everyone to head on over to her blog.

Hello!  My name is Rachel Abramson, and I am the author over at  Today, I am guest-blogging about the TV show The Office.  My life in Netflix is Jim and Pam from the Office and their relationship.

I've been dating Nate Fergason for just over a year now.  But we weren't always together.  Just like Pam, when Nate and I first met, I was engaged to someone else.  And from the day we met, we really hit it off, and joked around constantly, just like Jim and Pam.

During that time, Nate fell in love with me, but never told me.  When the day came that my fiance had decided to break off our engagement, Nate was there for me, even when all I wanted to do was scream and cry.  Like...seriously, who breaks off an engagement less than 60 days before your wedding??

Anyways...the summer ended, and I hired Nate to do some art for me.  We met at the mall, walked around and talked and talked and in the end, it was a really great day.  We worked well together!  Just like Jim and Pam.

About a month later, Nate came up to Cedar City, and we decided we would hang out again.  He came to my house, and we talked until 3 in the morning.  At the end of that night, he told me he loved me, and that was probably the weirdest moment of my life.

Well, after that, it was weird, and he left and was gone for a long time, like when Jim went up to New York to work.  But every so often, I'd hear from Nate, just like the faxes Jim would send back to the office.

Time went by, and a little later on, Nate came back to Cedar and without hesitation, asked me on a date.  It was totally unexpected!

Since then, we've been a strong couple!  We make a really good team.  We laugh together and cry together, and support each other in everything.

And if it's up to me, we will DEFINITELY end up like Jim and Pam one day.

Am I Pretty Yet?

Eating disorders are a serious issue within our society. People are constantly trying to fit a certain image that has been publicized to them. I have never personally struggled with having an eating disorder, but I do understand what it feels like to have serious self-esteem issues.   

I feel that eating disorders can be an issue for everyone; female, male, young or old. In this post, however, I will focus on teen girls that have eating disorders. 

One thing I have learned from my 22 years here on this earth is that people are mean and girls in high school are a special breed of mean.

Glee has a character named Marley that I feel perfectly captivates what it feels like to be a teenage girl. 

When I was a teenager I had serious issues with my appearance. I didn't think I was nearly as pretty as the friends I had. They never did anything to make me feel this way, but for some internal reason I still had self-esteem issues. 

I felt as though my hair never looked quite like all of the other girls and I either had too much make-up on or not enough. I would look at the other girls around me and think, "Why can't I look like them?" I felt like I never measured up to those around me. 

I was obsessed with being liked and felt like the only way I could ever be happy is if I was "popular." Thank goodness for my mother. She gave me some great advice when she saw that I was struggling. She told me that being popular is just a mind game and that was a hard pill for me to swallow. I didn't necessarily think this would work but by some miracle my self-esteem began escalating. 

Do I think it is important to be popular? The answer is no. I do not think it is important at all anymore. I drove myself crazy the first few years of high school trying to fit the status quo and eventually realized that the most important thing for me to do was to accept myself for who I was. It was then that I began to have respect for myself, and other's began to as well. 

I did my very best to be kind to other's and help them to know they were awesome for just simply being themselves. I ended up being Prom Queen my Senior year of high school. I felt so honored and to this day I still hope the reasoning for this could have been due to the change I made my Junior year of high school.

I am now married to a wonderful man who tells me I'm beautiful everyday and to this day I still struggle with self-esteem issues every once in a while. It may not ever go away but I try my best everyday to respect myself enough to appreciate my worth.

My message to those who are struggling with eating disorders or self-esteem issues is to try your very best to see that you are worth so much. Being a teen is hard but being an adult is hard as well. Try your best to respect yourself and do your best to respect others. 

My message to those who don't struggle with either of these issues is to remember that even those who appear to have it together could have an internal struggle. Try to be nice to those around you because you never know what they could be going through.  

I wrote this post as a guest for Rachel Abramson's blog and I hope you all will take a look to have a better understanding of this issue. She has great insight on the subject. 

Friends is Coming

Image pulled from Buzzfeed

All ten seasons of Friends will be streaming on Netflix beginning January 1st, 2015. I am SO excited.

Netflix has always been a show that is close to my heart. When I was younger I remember my whole family gathering around the TV to watch Friends. Not only am I excited because of nostalgic reasons but this show, in my opinion, is fantastic.

Emily Orley from Buzzfeed posted an article with the details of the Netflix announcement. She writes, "Netflix announced on Wednesday that the entire Friends series will be available for streaming starting Jan. 1, 2015. That means for the first time ever on a streaming site, you can watch all 10 seasons, all 236 episodes of Friends, whenever your heart desires." 

The article also has a wonderful video of the Remembrandts performing "I'll Be There For You." The video also features Gunther. If you are a fan of Friends I encourage you to go to the article and watch the video.

If you love Friends you may love these quizzes Buzzfeed has to test your knowledge on Friends:
How well do you know Monica's Apartment?
Which Friends character are you?
Which Friends character said it?
How big of a Friends fan are you really?

Gilmore Girls- I Smell Snow

Dallon and I tend to disagree on the appropriate time to begin listening to Christmas music. Saturday, we were talking about when we could both agree to listen to Christmas music this year. We decided that when it finally snowed we could both handle listening to it. I turned to Dallon and said, "Watch, now it will snow tomorrow." Well... for those of you who live in Cedar City I personally apologize for the jinx I placed upon Cedar City. I woke up to snow on Sunday morning.

This brings me to Gilmore Girls. I adore this show! I flipped out with excitement when I saw that it was added to Netflix. For those of you who have not watched Gilmore Girls, you should know that Lorelai Gilmore is known for adoring snow.
I feel that I relate to Lorelai a lot in this aspect. Even though I tend to enjoy waiting until Thanksgiving to begin listening to Christmas music, I truly love this time of year. The atmosphere that the holiday season brings is lovely. I definitely was not ready for the snow yesterday but I did love the feeling it brought with it. Also I have a lot more clothing for the cold so that's another plus.

Let's also not forget the fact that I kind of, almost, slightly predicted that it was going to snow on Sunday.

I am so excited to pull out my little space heater and that it will now be a little more socially acceptable for me to binge watch on TV shows, cuddled underneath a blanket, sipping hot cocoa with biscotti. Dallon may not be entirely thrilled about the cuddling part but I'm sure he'll adapt. 

Like I said before, I am very sad the snow came so soon but I am not sad that it brought the holiday atmosphere to Cedar City. I hope you all will enjoy this season that I accidentally brought a little too soon.
