My Fabulous Life!

Hi ya'll...what's up?!? SO I know that I previously did an about me back in the day that focused on my health, but I wanted to let you know a little bit more about me!

I'm Jill and I just turned 24 at the end of May (gosh I'm getting old). I currently work full time as a librarian for a college:
please note this was a staged picture I had to take for work....I'm really not this nerdy (at least I like to think I'm not!)
In addition to working full time I am attending graduate school for my master's in library science part time. I only have a few classes left and will be finished in mid December....yes like 6.5 months away. I literally cannot wait until the time when I won't feel so guilty about lounging around watching countless hrs. of reality TV instead of doing my hw! Ah, the good life...
My reality TV obsession tends to lean away from those shows deemed semi-appropriate by society like American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and the Bachelor. While I will enjoy an episode or 2 of those if they are on, I simply can't miss episodes of The Hills, Girls Next Door, whatever real world/road rules trash is on, every season of Real Housewives and I have even started watching Ice Road Truckers recently...uh, what?
AND moving on! On my more cultured side I enjoy drinking wine and traveling. During my undergrad I was able to study abroad for a semester in Germany. Where I went to college 'study abroad' was essentially code for get crazy all over Europe legally while under 21. It was honestly the best experience of my life and I can't wait to go back :)

This whole past year I have been working hard on planning a super fancy, classy wedding for the beginning of August with all of our friends and family....we will see how it goes as this is typically what happens when my fiance and I go to a party:
Gotta love those sorority/fraternity formals....plastic cups, wristbands and all!
We started dating during sophomore year of college and will have been together for a little less than 5 years when we tie the knot. He is the best thing ever and puts up with my outrageous shenanigans on a daily basis. We just recently moved in together here in Indy and so far so good. He is actually relatively clean (cleaner than me!) and likes to cook...uh, JACKPOT!!



Wonderful weekend!

So this past weekend we not only had mostly beautiful weather, but it was my birthday!!!

I was able to spend my mornings drinking tea on our new balcony:
And enjoy this awesome view: I am 100% in love with our new apt! Our balcony looks over this pretty good sized lake that has a walking path surrounding it. The path takes you right by some popular restaurants/bars (perfect for stumbling home after many drinks) and tons of shops! I love our location. Now if only I could get a job in one of those office buildings then I could simply walk to work instead of enduring my painful half hour drive downtown....oh well!

Saturday was my birthday! Fiance and I had a few friends over to celebrate. One of my girlfriends made this super impressive cake for me (it even had strawberry filling!!!) Her brother owns a dessert store so he gave her the recipe and decorating tips. I thought it was very impressive!!!
Lord knows if I tried this it would be a hot mess.
Last night I obvi. had to stay up late watching The Hills finale (the bitch is back!! omg so much drama!) and the Mtv movie awards (I wasn't very impressed). I have been a true hills fan since it started. I always watched Laguna Beach (ok, this is embarrassing to admit, but I actually own the first season of Laguna on DVD...HA!) which just kind of transferred to the Hills. I debated not watching this next season now that Lauren won't be on it anymore and it is slightly ridiculous, but I just can't help it. I know I will be glued to the TV every monday for 30 minutes of completely scripted 'reality' tv. Such a guilty pleasure of mine! :)
Well I hope everyone else is making it through this Monday with more energy than me!
