"In Such An Ugly World, Something So Beautiful."

Title: The Kooks - "Naive"

A small sampling of things Vanessa does not like:

People who think they are funny, and they are not.

Cold cars in the morning. And the afternoon. And the evening too.

People who hide behind Facebook to tell you things because they have the inability to do it to your face.

The cost of textbooks.

Being in 2011 and I'm still writing 2010.

Cold feet.

Future in-laws.


The fact that Limewire shut down.

Thinking that my car would be off this year when it actually is paid off next year.

Impending snowfall.

Wally World.

Thinking you know someone and finding out otherwise.

A small sampling of things Vanessa does like:

Being in the year I will finally graduate.

Cinnamon raisin english muffins for breakfast.

Being in the year I will (hopefully) find a big girl job.

Having a wonderful man who will get out of bed when he doesn't have to be up to make said scrumptious cinnamon raisin english muffin for breakfast for me while I get ready for work.

Being in the year I will move out.


Being in the year I will start planning my wedding.

Wearing scarves.


Finding the recipes for Mojo broth and green goddess dressing served at the Melting Pot.


Losing weight over the holiday season.

Florence + The Machine


What are you liking or disliking?

Just got your Christmas Card (we've been out of town since the 16th). Loved it! So fun!

Grace said...

Your final semester huh! that is super exciting! what are you majoring in again? i hate cold cars too and the cost of textbooks!

i'm liking chocolate, coca-cola, reading, and boots. :)

Annie Cristina said...

I love your lists! I recently got into scarves myself and really, really love them. Especially in cold cars, yuck. And I love, love, love Florence + The Machine!!! That woman's voice is amazing.

Also-also, I wish you luck in your graduation year. I graduated in December, so I know what a huge load off your shoulders that can be. :D

Heather said...

Interesting list :). I'm also not a fan of my future in-laws...oh well, haha.

I also love Florence and the Machine!

I totally laughed out loud at "future in-laws" being on the dislike list. For reals. Also, it's not as good as Limewire, but try Frostwire. If that fails, find the music on YT, then visit www.listentoyoutube.com


Likes: My new camera, my kitties, cooking, 1000gig of downloads per month.

Dislike: Unemployment, being a student, debt coming out my ears, cleaning up.

super cute! I hate my cold car in the morning too, that is an obvious one but really i hate it, it's like ugh please warm up, I don't even want to be awake right now! i also love beer right now (good beer) and work clothes that don't wrinkle during the day and snuggly slippers. And I'm with you on the english muffins!

Marissa said...

Cold feet are the WORST!

Beach Belle said...

Yup. Cold feet suck.

I'm really disliking that iTunes isn't cooperating with me today. GRRRR!

Pretty, pretty please share the Mojo broth recipe. :)

Connie said...

Way to go losing weight over the holidays!! That's great. (I dislike facebook for lots of reasons... not sure why I'm on it haha)

Anna said...

ag. said...

We have so much in common! Cold cars are the WORST!

Nancy Face said...

I know I'm not funny, but I love pretending I am! I crack stupid jokes and then laugh at them hysterically while my family stares at me, just shaking their heads. Then they laugh too, because I'm just so ridiculous. :D

KimCandis said...

I am liking that this will be my last cray cray Boston winter...disliking that I have still not hung out with you in real life!
