My sincerest apologies for not keeping up with blogging. As always, life has prevented me from keeping up on writing. It’s been an insanely busy semester, and it’s always busy around the holidays. I guess I haven’t blogged since before the World Series.. Holy cow!
Obviously it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t talk baseball.. And holy balls do I have a LOT to talk about!
SO, going back to where I left off. World Series! Man, what a show. I’d never been so stressed about teams that I had no concern about. St. Louis put on an interesting show with that knee jerk back and forth crap. I honestly didn’t know who was going to win.. Well I knew who was going to win, but I still thought about it for a second haha I liked Boston’s squad this year. Strong bats, power pitching, and heavy on personality. They did great things for the city after such tragedy earlier this year, that I’m glad they won
**note, I’m not a Boston fan in any way, but the cute guy(Boston fan) in a couple of my classes this semester did inspire me to pay attention to them slightly more than I usually do.. Damn those green eyes! BUT I hope we crush them next year haha
On to off season news, and MY GOD, there’s been a whirlwind!
I am elated that my Giants signed Tim Hudson to the pitching staff.. Huddy is one of my favorite pitchers in the big leagues, loved him with Atlanta but Il love him even more in orange and black! Resigned Timmy, Vogey, Javy and some other minor leaguers. I’m also pretty pumped with what the Indians have done, except I’m heartbroken that Kazmir is gone.. BABY COME BACK! We picked up Murph which I’m pretty pumped about.. He’s got sneaky power and can pitch in dire situations haha
Signings signings signings.. All I’ve focused on for the last week, prior to winter meetings, is these ridiculous contracts and the WTF landing spots. Top dog, Cano is going to Seattle for a ridiculous $240.. Like seriously?? Not in it for the money my ass. Fister to Detroit, Fielder to Texas, Kaz to Oakland, Salty to Miami, Granderson to NYM, and the two biggest shockers… Beltran and Ellsbury signing with the Yanks. WHAT!
My Cal History professor(HUGE Boston fan) started class by saying “Jacoby Ellsbury is dead to me.” Haha I’m one of maybe 4 people in the class that actually follows baseball so he looked at me when he said it hahah
The handful of mind boggling signings the week prior to winter meetings threw me off big time, I can only imagine what this week will bring. Just to mention, it started this morning with the HOF Expansion Era committee electing Tony La Russa, Bobby Cox, and Joe Torre to the hall of fame. I honestly thought Miller and Steinbrenner would if gone in as well, but I guess not!
So other than baseball, I’ve been working on a few things. Money is low this year, so everyone is getting homemade gifts. Il post pictures after Christmas. School has been kicking my butt. I’ve written more papers than I can’t count on both hands. Finals are this week, so I’m slightly neurotic. Luckily, one is an online essay. Another, my professor said that if you have an A in the class that you don’t have to take the final, SHWING! I think il pull out As and Bs this semester. Besides Astronomy, I’ve enjoyed all my courses and teachers. And I’ve met some fantastic people so it’s been successful for the most part.
Thanksgiving was great! Had a big family meal at my aunt and uncles house. We grubbed and drank, got a little sideways, but I’m 22 so it’s okay haha I payed for it that Friday. Life lesson: don’t drink patron, cafe patron, fireball, beer, vodka, and wine all in the same night. I mean, unless you want to pee for 6 hours straight, feel like you got hit by two semis, and then took a ride in a dryer while singing Christmas carols on a boat. A slow and painful death indeed.
I’ve also been on a homemade meals kick, where everything has been insanely good. I’ve shared a bit of it on my Instagram, but here’s some more.
Excited for Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year! I have an insane schedule so il probably piss a lot of people off by not being able to attend their events. But my sanity takes forefront. I’d love to be able to make everyone happy, but in don’t have the money, the time, or the energy to please everyone. Bare with me, this is going to be a rough 3 weeks. If you can’t contact me, I’m probably working tirelessly, studying my brains out, or rummaging for time to sleep and do normal human activities like eating and breathing.
Til next time folks! And happy holidays to all👍😘♥️🎄

Thought today would be a good opportunity to post since I’ve been swamped with university life.. And by university life, I’m not referring to partying and social events and all that. I’m referring to the copious amount of studying and papers and academic shit I’ve had to do. One word: WINE. Rounding out the end of my midterms this week I’ve written 8 papers, taken five exams, and have had reading of 9 books on top of that.. Did I mention I like wine? Fortunately, I’ve had great feedback and have gotten grades between 83 and 96 in all classes. High five to myself, personal victory! So yeah, I guess it’s good that I’m staying busy between school and work, but my social life is non existent right now.. Friends? Do you exist anymore?? Im still alive! I should name my iPad Wilson because it’s the only thing I’ve had a relationship with in the last month hahah
So it’s finally October.. The glory of Fall! So many fantastic things come with this season. I’m pumped just to be able to drink hot coffee and not be pissed off. And the weather is getting better.. If only San Diego would calm its persnickety ass down with this heat.. That rain last week was a mean teaser. I just want to wear my damn sweatshirts again!
Baseball, my full time boyfriend, has been sneaky this post season. Between LA and St Louis, these games are a constant tug and pull. The Dodgers have been deceptive in their pursuit. They claim Hanley is hurt but they suit him up in ridiculous armor and play him anyway.. I call bull honky. Also, another pet peeve is that LA adopted “fear the beard” with Brian Wilson’s arrival. I’m not bitter about the signing, because nobody else offered him anything and he’s got bills to pay.. I’m bitter that a saying termed in San Francisco by GIANTS fans has been capitalized in a rival ball club. It’s crap. And I don’t fear it anymore.. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still one foxy dude with a mean fastball, but I’m over it. LA go away. Obviously I’m pulling for the Cards in this series haha
The other match up, which has put me through the flippin ringer is Boston and Detroit. I’m a baseball fan foremost, so obviously I’m stressed the eff out! You can’t win in this series. When you go from domination for 2 games, an insane 2 inning wtf triumph, a ridiculously embarrassing loss, to an 1 run win.. You just can’t catch a break. I’m pulling for Boston in this series.. Not because I’m a random fan, but because I don’t want Detroit in the World Series haha they’ve been there 2 years in a row, I’m tired of seeing them. Except for Miguel Cabrera because I can’t be negative about him.. He’s too good! And that catch by Iglesias last night.. No words can describe that. Like what the actual f***!!! He is money for Detroit. Boston’s had a solid line up. Salty, excellent.. Ellsbury, money.. Ortiz, 8 chainz.. And Between Napoli and Ross, the old beards are dominating.
So Halloween is coming up.. Obviously, I’ve decorated haha I’m pretty pumped on the fact that I finally get to renew my Disney pass because holidays are the best at Disneyland. And Desert season is literally around the corner so I’m pumped on that.. Nothing like opening weekend arm pump!
So I don’t have much more to say.. I’ve cut back on coffee.. I’m on day 3 of only one cup in the morning and I kinda want to kill everyone. I tried a chi tea yesterday and it was pretty bomb.. May need to invest in those bad boys. We’ve also entered bread bowl season, so it’s time to get fat haha til next time!!
