Ten on Tuesday (Vol. 32)

1. If you work, do you drive to work or take public transportation?
I drive. The bus system in our area is not too good and I’m a little leery of using it at 6am in the morning.
2. How often do you get your hair cut? Do you go to the same person every time?
Usually, every 8 weeks although I tried to make my appointment later this time around so I wouldn’t have terrible hair at my graduation. Only… I forgot which day I had originally set my appointment for. Yesterday, while going through my receipts, I realized my appointment had been last Saturday. I am dying to get my hair done because it’s a) too long and b) my roots are growing like crazy so I’m so mad at myself for writing down the wrong date! Luckily, I was able to get one in two weeks but I have no idea what state my hair will be in by then.
To answer the second question, yes. I’ve been going to my same stylist since I was in 10th grade. I’ve tried other people at the salon, but nobody is as good as she is!
3. Do you read the newspaper? If so, a hard copy or the online version?
I don’t. I make a terrible journalism student but news just doesn’t interest me. It should. I know it should. But hey, I follow Breaking News and journalists on Twitter. They give me all the news I need.
4. What is the best book you have read this year?
Water For Elephants was such a great read. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. But, I have to say, The Truth About Forever (review to come!) was an incredibly, awesome read as well. In fact, I’m still really sad that I finished it so fast and the characters in the story are no longer a part of my everyday life. I haven’t felt that way about characters in a long time. (And, by the way, Sarah Dessen? SHE’S AMAZING! Why has it taken so long for me to discover her?)
5. What is the best movie you have seen this year?
Um. I haven’t seen any movies this year. How sad is that?! I do have plans to see Soul Surfer, Something Borrowed, and Water for Elephants, though! If I see all three of those in theaters, I think I will have hit the total I saw last year in theaters. I find it very hard to fork over money for movie tickets and tend to forget about renting movies when we have a DVR chock full of shows to watch.
6. Do you tend to crave sweet or salty foods?
Usually, sweet. I have a major sweet tooth. Rarely do I crave salty things, although it happens every once in a while.
7. Do you eat breakfast every day? If so, what do you have?
I am really bad at eating breakfast. I’m trying to get better at it but it’s hard when you start work at 6:30am and are basically running nonstop until after 10am. Right now, I’m trying to eat some fruit in the morning and then a granola bar/string cheese for a mid-morning snack (around 10am). Usually, it fills me up which is surprising since nothing has ever seemed to keep me full until lunch.
8. If you celebrate Easter, what Easter treat/candy are you most looking forward to?
Ah…the hollow Easter bunny! I told my mom I didn’t want an Easter basket this year, just a big chocolate bunny and some Robin Eggs. Chocolate bunnies are the best. (I should also mention that I eat a chocolate-covered Peep a few times a week now. Such a yummy treat!)
9. How late is “sleeping in” to you?
Ugh, lately? 9am which I am NOT OK with! Sleeping in for me is at least 10am, but my internal clock has me up by 8-8:30 most weekends now. Bummer.
10. Where are you going on your next vacation?

  1. I can't wait to hear about 'the truth about forever' - it sounds familiar to me like i've read it but i'm not sure..

  2. Water for Elephants is definitely my favorite book this year. I'm not a fan of Sarah Dessen. A lot of people like her, but I've read a couple of her books, and I didn't like them.

    Oh, I love the hollow bunnies! And the chocolate robin eggs! :)

  3. I'm excited for your vacation, too! What a fun get away that will be. I've never been on a tropical get away! Some day!

    Ufda - starting work at 6:30? yikes! I thought it was tough that I have to leave the house at 6:30!

  4. One of my favorite books from last year was Water for Elephants. Can't wait to watch it.
    I go to movies often and about 50 percent of the time I fall asleep :(. What a waste.

    Have a great week :)

  5. I love Sarah Dessen as well! Her books are so good!

  6. cannot wait to see Water for Elephants! So excited for it :)

  7. I really want to read Water for Elephants - especially before I watch the movie.

    And, I'm with you on the sleeping in thing. It doesn't happen for me anymore. I guess that's par of getting older or something and I'm not sure I like that.

  8. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who relies on Twitter for her news!

  9. I think I have to revisit "Water for Elephants".... I started the book but could not get into it.

    So excited about your trip! :)

  10. I'm just like you when it comes to my hair. 8-10 weeks is usually my limit, but sometimes I can push it to 15-17 weeks which is just unacceptable. It amazes me that people only go once or twice a year! How does their hair survive that long?! It must be our short hairstyles :)

    YOUR vacation is sososo soon wow!

  11. You have me craving Robin Eggs now!

  12. I recently bought Water for Elephants but haven't cracked it open yet. An by "cracked it open," I mean, "looked at it on my Kindle app." Guess I ought to?

  13. Can't wait to see the new 'do! Elvis Pretzely is the perfect part sweet and salty-LOVE IT!

  14. I'll have to check out Water for Elephants!

  15. I have Water for Elephants, and I need to start reading it! Maybe tomorrow... :)

  16. I only get my hair cut every sixth months or so, but I definitely did get it cut much more often when I got it colored (mostly because I was there and not because it was more damaged or anything).

  17. I am also a major sweet tooth!!! Can't get enough of sugar. Haha!

  18. I also loved Water for Elephants. I wasn't sure about it in the beginning, but by the end I was loving it!


Comments make me all giddy with excitement.
