Super Overwhelmed...

I have been feeling super overwhelmed recently. With all the schoolwork that I need to complete and with the days going by so fast. I just want to take a few days off of school and social life to crawl into my own little hole and get everything that needs to be done, done.

Things I have to complete:
1. A rewrite of a paper I got a D- on.
2. Paper Proposal for Am. Regionalism and Realism by Oct 17.
3. Read through chapter 14 of McTeague by tomorrow.
4. Write a one-page significant statement of ch 8-14 of McTeague for tomorrow.
5. Paper 2 for Study of Literature by Oct 27.
6. A whole bunch of Blackboard postings.
7. Begin research for my Victorian artifact presentation.
8. Pick a topic for my Victorian Lit seminar paper and then write the paper.
9. Finish The Moonstone by next Tuesday.
10. Read a 60-page reading by Althusser by Thursday.
11. So much more that I can't even think at the moment.

=/ Not to mention my personal stuff that I have to do like my blogs and my own writing and my letters to my penpals and my leisure reading. I do these things for my own sanity. If I didn't have these 4 things.. I'd be committed.

More later

Hoodie Weather and School Time

So, it's finally hoodie weather!! I love fall. It's quite possibly the best season. School is in session and right now I am sitting at my university's library ticking away the three hours I have until my Tuesday night class (my Newswriting class). Tuesdays are my long days but the three hour break isn't so bad. I get a lot of my homework done during it and I get a lot of my leisure reading and/or writing done as well.

Speaking of writing, Tracey and I have decided to collaborate on a novel together! It is one of the greatest ideas we have thought of (aside from our collab blog!) haha.

Anywho, I just wanted to post a quick update of my life. Not that it is very eventful, but hey, once our book comes out there will be lots and lots to talk about!

More later.

Guest Blog on DoL: Kylee

"To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong"
--Joseph Chilton Pearce

     Today, many people fixate themselves on body image. They want to be perfect. People want to feel good about themselves. They all want to look in the mirror and smile, totally accepting their body because it is society's definition of person. Many teenage girls believe that perfection can be reached. But the real truth is, no one's perfect. No one can reach that ultimate goal of perfection, no matter how hard they may try.

      First off, let me explain the word perfect. Perfect is considered an abstract noun, meaning everyone has their own definition of the word. So clearly, not everyone thinks alike when the word "perfect" pops into their head. Personally, when I think of the word perfect I think of someone tall, blonde, blue eyes, beach girl, basically the typical Barbie doll. Most likely, teenaged girl's ideas of perfect, including mine, are probably out of this world considering all of the things we are exposed to.
     
      Even though I'm only 13, I've been exposed to it all. The magazines, TV shows, movies, they all play a factor in the idea of perfection. Take the show 
America's Next Top Model for example, I sit on my couch, apple in hand, almost every day, begging myself to get thinner so I may grow up to be a model. When the realization of the matter is, the "ideal" woman portrayed by models is 5'11" and 117 pounds. So basically, most girls my age want to be sticks. Which, in all reality is really, truly, very sickening. This leads teenage girls into developing eating disorders and depression. I wish I could sway someone's idea of how they look, but it's almost impossible. Your body image is what you think of yourself, and once media and magazines, sway that idea, it is quite difficult to accept yourself once again.

Girls need to realize: you can't please everyone. The only one that you're going to have to put up with is yourself. If people don't like your hair, or your curves, then so what? They're not in your body, you are. From personal experience I know it's hard to not want to please everyone. I've had tons of comments thrown at me. "Your thighs are huge, go to the gym already!"  "Try straightening your hair once and a while, you'll look prettier!"   Prettier? In life it isn't about being pretty, and in all honesty looks don't matter that much. The inside matter way more than the outside. The thing is though, you can't let the people, media, or the magazines push you around. Because if you do, you'll end up like a carbon copy. You'll be miserable once you find out that, this isn't what you want to be. That you wasted your time trying to be something you're not for someone whom you don't have to put up with for the rest of your life. My body image of myself was horrible and corrupted. I wanted to be sickly thin, ribs sticking out, size 0. Of course I'm not like that now, cause I finally realize that no one's perfect. I'm 5'3", 144.8, size 11, and B36, which is clearly, now here near a model's weight or height.

The cure to this epidemic of distorted body images is confidence, which takes a lot of time to build up. It's hard, and I'm still working on it. I'm working on loving myself too. But the thing is, whenever I fall, break down, or just start to cry, I never give up completely. The next day I am back on my feet again, positivity flowing through my body. It's a difficult, strenuous, challenge to be able to have confidence, and finally accept your body. But I have faith in you, and I bet a lot of other people do too. Everyone reading this, do me a favor and stand in front of the mirror, and instead of pointing out all of the negative, point out just ONE thing you love about yourself. Then eventually, you'll come to accept yourself.

So, it's been a while. Mainly because last weekend I went on vacation to Wisconsin (near Devil's Lake). That vacation was so peaceful and wonderful. Getting away from reality and spending time with my boyfriend and my cousin and her boyfriend was just fantastic. Helped me clear my head and have fun. (even though at one point I did have a panic attack...) Anyways, we left on Friday morning at 5am. Got to the cottage at about 930am. We spent basically the entire weekend at the Dells. Pirate's Cove (multiple times. gotta love mini golf), Paul Bunyan's, Mount Olympus, Ponderosa, Arcade, and many of the shops. But it was very nice getting away for a few days.
Our cottage <3
Then this past week I had work and all my normal things. Finally got my school schedule settled for the fall. Had a coffee date with Aaron and caught up a bit with him, which was VERY nice and I would like it to happen again. Then my uncle Jim, his girlfriend (Viola), and his youngest son (Brian) came in town from California. Yesterday we went to the Sox vs. Cubs game (SOX WON!) and the sky was fantastic looking. Vicious yet gorgeous at the same time. And we also went to the Taste of Chicago for a bit. Then ordered some good Chicago pizza (because it is the best) and went out to the bar and had a great (and funny) time. Then I went to my friend Eric's because he just got home from bootcamp (he has a tumor on his toe and needs to get it surgically removed).
The viciously gorgeous sky <3
Well, that's all I have for the moment.

Degrees of Life

The Degrees of Life blog is becoming a great success. It is fun to read each one's posts. Even though you have to wait until the next day to read more. Because that's what it does. It makes you want to read more. I get excited when it's the end of the day because I know that shortly.. there will be another post! I love how we are doing each week as a theme. This weeks theme is Comforts. It's been very interesting to read everyone's comforts. There is also a guest blogging section. So I encourage you to participate! Please! We want all of you to join in on the fun! Leave your comments and everything. It would be so nice to hear from all of you!

On a personal note, Matthew's grad party is this Saturday. I am unfortunately stuck doing a whole bunch of work for it because he got a job and works 8-430 Mon-Fri. I just work nights. So I get screwed. ugh. And Sunday is Father's Day.. Let's just say the only thing that I am looking forward to that day is my posting on Degrees of Life. However, I am very intrigued to see what the theme will be since we are letting you choose it! So go and vote. As of right now Idols is in the lead, but Innocence is right behind it.

As you can see, everyone at Degrees of Life wants everyone to participate; by leaving comments, voting on the poll, and by sending an e-mail to degrees.of.life.blog@gmail.com with what your post would be on the week. And we will pick our favorite and post it on the blog! So come on and join in on the fun. Trust me, it is fun. =]

My Room

Well, my room is pretty much clean. And, as promised, here are some pics of it! =]

My room when you look at it from walking in through the door.

My coffee table with my Audrey books and my *huge* martini glass ;P

My wonderful movie collection of at least 200 DVDs. There could possibly be well over 200.

My TV, movies, and part of my desk area.

My futon and queen sized bed. =] Mmm, I love my bed!

Half of my books on the shelves above my bed and futon.

And the other half of the books. =]

And... my desk area. =]

So, there you go. That's my room. Thank you for taking the visual tour. =]

I'm going to be hardcore cleaning my room. Right now it's a mess. I have movies strewn about the floor along with books (because I'm switching them up. I don't know where to put all of them..) I need a freakin' library. A room dedicated to only my books and movies. because right now... I don't have room for them in my room.. I will post a pic of the aftermath =]

Anyways, I will also be making lunch... I haven't decided what I will be making but whatever I make I will post a pic and recipe for it. =]

Speaking of recipes. I have decided to take all of grandma's thousands and thousands of recipes and put together her all time favorites and put it into a little book and give it to her for Christmas. =]

Some Answers

So the internet went out at my house last night but it's back on! However, I still wrote a post at 1:30 early this morning and saved it on my computer to post today. So here it is. I think it could answer some of your questions..


I’m sitting here, bored as hell, because my internet went out. It has been out for an hour and a half and it is driving me crazy. I don’t think I have ever been this bored before. I should be sleeping but since I have a slight case of insomnia and I’m up until 3 or 4 in the morning almost every night, you can understand why this is such a huge problem for me. What I really want to be doing is the research for what is the best blogging site to use for a group blog (as most of you should know by now that I am taking applications if you’d like to join in on this group blog). I have a vision and I would love for this vision to become a reality but how the hell am I supposed to do that with my internet being out. Stupid Comcast.

Anyways, some questions have arisen as to what this group blog entails. Well, for starters, we (meaning Tracey and I) are thinking about having 5-7 people collaborating on a single blog (Tracey and I being 2 of those people so we need 3-5 more). We were thinking about assigning a day of the week to each person (we have not decided on whether it will be a Monday through Friday blog or a Saturday through Sunday blog. I guess it all depends on how many people sign up and what not). And that person will be dedicated to that single day. That said person can write as much, post as much, and whatever else need be on that current day. Then the next day will be dedicated to the next person. And so on and so forth. So far we have had a few people from other countries apply and a few of our friends as well. I would like to have a lot to choose from, so please send your applications in to degrees.of.life.blog@gmail.com.

Speaking of Degrees of Life. That is the name of the blog. It is because there are different degrees throughout the world and well, since there will be 5-7 people on this blog each person is a degree. Each person can bring something to the table and make this blog amazing. I know this blog can be amazing. And I know it will be. I want this blog to not only be about blogging about our lives and getting to know other people and maybe even other cultures but I want the world to look at our blog and be inspired. I was thinking about putting on the blog a Q&A corner where you, as the viewers, can ask us questions whether they are silly questions or advice. Maybe it could even be like a “Dear Abby” corner. I want this blog to not only be for the bloggers themselves but for you, the readers and viewers and followers, as well. To me, being a writer and all, this blog means so much to me and I would love for it to become something amazing. But in order for that to happen, I need your help. If you are interested in either joining our group or just wanting to be a part of our audience. Spread our word around. Let this world see the beauty of this project. Help our dreams (and quite possibly yours as well) come true.

If any of you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me either by commenting or e-mailing me at eden.kaye@gmail.com Thank you. Much love to all of you and I hope to hear from you.

Disappointment..

I hate the fact that I was invited to do this International Blog Project and came up with quite a few project names/titles and it falls through. I never heard back from the girl. And it just super irritates me. Because I was really looking forward to doing this project. So now, I'm stuck by myself wanting this project to happen...

Please if anyone is interest... let me know, asap!! (I would love to statrt one up...)

Forgotten Words and Possibly Some Regrets...

So, today I was browsing around the internet and came across an old blog of mine off Xanga. I started to read it and let me tell you, it was very interesting and at points I wanted to slap myself. There were these to posts that I wrote about my ex-boyfriend, that we will call KM. [Side note: I have recently become friends with his latest ex, T, and let me tell you, I love her. She is a remarkable person and so sweet and KM is a complete idiot to have let her go.] The one entry talks about the break we took in December of 2009. It lasted for 3 weeks. Well I stated:

"KM and I had a 3 week long break. I just couldn't take it anymore. He was being a douchebag and it didn't seem like he cared that I wasn't in his life anymore. However, one day we talked things through and we had an us day where he made me dinner (chicken with honey mustard and pasta) and we watched half of season 1 of True Blood. He surprised me by getting me a bouquet of bright pink, blue, green, purple, and yellow daisies. He also gave me my Christmas present which was a silver bracelet that has 3 hearts. The smallest heart says Today. The middle heart says Tomorrow. The largest heart says Forever. It's from Zales and rather pretty. =] So we talked and I told him that in order to give us another chance, I need things to be permanently different. There's not going to be a change for a couple weeks and then go back to how it was."

Only my downfall was that when things did go back to how it was, I stayed with him. I acted as though everything was hunky-dory. Things were not okay. He was treating me badly. He moved to a different state without discussing anything with me. One day he wasn't going up to Wisconsin until August and then the next day he told me he was leaving in 3 days. He didn't talk about how it was going to affect me and he EXPECTED me to move up there and live with HIM. As if my dreams and my schooling didn't matter. Instead of me majoring in English and minoring in Writing to work with a publishing company (which is a dream of mine) he told me that I could become a teacher. And for a while, I was thinking about it. I look back at that time in my life and I think, "Oh, honey, you had no lady balls. You didn't think for yourself." And I didn't. I was completely and utterly at his disposal and hate that. I gave him everything he could have dreamed for. I lost friends because for him. I disappointed my family for him. I lost the chance to see my dad one last time before he died, for KM.

Normally, when people ask me if I have regrets I say, "No, I don't regret anything in life because that is what makes you who you are today." But you know what? The God-honest truth of the matter is that I do regret one thing: Letting him take my independence away from me. But let me tell you one thing. I have learned my lesson. I will never ever again in my life let a man try to control me. If I don't have my independence, then that man is not for me. I found a man who is okay with my independence. Who loves me for my independence. Who respects me and my independence. KM didn't.

So, I kept on reading my old blog and came across the post I wrote after KM and I broke up. I want to slap myself. Here is what I wrote:

"So a lot has happened since I last wrote on here. For starters, KM and I broke up. And surprisingly, I'm okay with it. Actually, I'm more than okay. I realized that I was settling. I thought there was no one else out there. That I had no other options. That this was the best out there for me. A person who doesn't show up to family gatherings. A person who puts me down. Someone who is ignorant. And mean. Someone who doesn't care that them moving to a whole different state affects me. And then it hit me. I was sitting at Starbucks with Aaron and Laura and I had texted my friend, Sean, asking if he could bring me a McChicken because I was hungry. He came and brought me two. We started talking again that night. Really talking. We were on the phone for an hour catching up. I started thinking what would have happened if I had said yes to the date he asked me out on back in high school. Where would I be? Who would I be? Would he even give me another chance if anything went wrong? I asked him and he told me that I would make him the happiest person in the world. And of course he would give me another chance. Right then, I realized. I was not in the dark anymore. I had other options. Better options. Standing in front of my face for nearly three years was the man of my dreams. The man who could make me unbelievably happy. The man who would treat me with respect and treat me the way I'm supposed to be treated. A man who actually cares. A man who won't break my heart. Then it was like "why aren't I with him?" So I took a chance. KM and I were arguing about how I felt about him moving and he did not give two shits about how it was affecting me. He kept telling me that I was being selfish and I never sacrificed anything for him. And I just couldn't take it any more. He was putting me through hell and I did not deserve that."

I look back at that and I feel like I was an idiot. But then again, like I was telling T earlier, sometimes love makes you do crazy, stupid, idiotic things. When you love someone or think you love someone you can do stupid things. All of the above happened when I dated KM. Even though I regret letting KM take away my independence and my sanity, I will always treasure the lesson that I learned from being with him. And that is to not let anyone stomp all over me. Because I don't deserve that. No one does. 

But anyway, I just felt like I needed to get that off my chest. People can ask me, "Do you hate him?" And I can truthfully say that no, I do not hate him. It's pointless to hate him. I used to hate him. The only difference is that now, I don't let him affect me or phase me. If he wants to say mean things to me he can. It will just bounce right off me. 

I guess that is what happens when you grow. And I have grown. And I feel pretty damn amazing. And half of it is because of Sean and half of it is because I grew some lady balls and I got my independence back. For everything and everyone who has helped me through that rough time, I thank you. You are greatly appreciated. And I love you.

xoxo

Catch Up Time...

Finally I am starting to write again. And it feels amazing. I have so many ideas and I just want to get them all out there. =]

I got an interesting Twitter message or 3 from an ex-boyfriend. Let's just say he's special. And if he wants to be super bipolar, then he can. I won't let him phase me. I stopped letting him phase me a long time ago.

Yesterday was Memorial Day and I love good ole American food and picnics and spending time with the family. But it was so hot out yesterday, that after being in the sun and heat for 3 hours.. I started getting irritable.. I was not a happy person after those first 3 hours. haha.

I have 2 more letters and a present to finish and send out and I will be all caught up with my pen-palling. Which makes me feel super great =] I hate keeping my penpals waiting.

Well, I'm gonna get back to revising and more writing. =]

Writing...

I really need to get back into my writing and reading. I miss them so much! A month ago, I started to write Autumn Raye some more... but then school got in the way, like always. I don't know how I will ever be able to become an author if school keeps getting in my way. However, the good news is that I finally was able to declare my writing minor; so in the fall I have 2 or 3 writing classes. So that shall be exciting. =]


I have so many ideas for my writings, there just isn't enough hours in the day for me to finish any of them... Any suggestions on that?


Luci, my car, is getting looked at, at the moment. Hopefully when the nice men are done working on her she will be running nice and smooth. I'm glad she isn't dying out on me yet!


Well, I'm gonna go finish up some letters, get back to my paper writing, and maybe take a nap...


xoxo


p.s. BTW, I started a book club yesterday. It's for anyone so, you should join! I'm still looking for some more moderators!  My Book Club

Starbucks

So, I am sitting at Starbucks at the moment, writing some papers because it is crunch time for school. A couple of the friends that I have been having "problems" with lately are up here with a huge group being loud and obnoxious and completely ignoring me. But for some reason, I'm okay with everything. I have found out who my true friends are and I am sticking with them. The good thing with everything that has happened lately is the fact that I have found my truest, most loyal friends; which are the best to keep around.

Easter was yesterday and it was rather hectic. My huge family came over for an early dinner and we all hung out in our loud manner that we always do. Then I went over to Sean's house to spend time with my other family (that is what they have become to me, after only 9.5 months of dating Sean, his family is my family, too). We watched The Proposal and laughed and enjoyed each other's company. Then Sean had to work the overnight shift so he dropped me off at my neighbor's so I could go see them and Kadie, Kodie, and I all watched Burlesque and ate candy and had our smokey treats.

I ended up skipping school today, because my car is a piece of shit at the moment. I have no brakes left. So, Luci cannot be driven. (Yes, I named my car Luci) The brake pedal has to be pushed all the way down to the ground and then she will finally start to slow down. She's sitting in my driveway until I can get someone to look at her, hopefully tomorrow. So, for now, I am using my mom's car but I felt like today was a good Starbucks homework catch up day. =]

Well, this was a nice break but I still have a couple more papers to write and work later tonight. I may just have to leave Starbucks in order to be away from this noisy ex-group of mine...

Twenty One

12 more hours until my 21st birthday! I am super excited about it!! WOO!
Haha.

My school workload seems to be diminishing slightly. Still freaking out about how I'm a little behind, but my goal is to be caught up and maybe ahead by the end of next week. =]

I also have to catch up on my letters to my penpals. That is my other goal for the next few days.
Hope all of you are doing well.

I still really want to do this international blog project, but as of right now, I have nobody to do it with.. =/
I will keep you informed on that.

Off to go eat pasta for lunch.

Life is full of complications...

Things in life for me have been... a little problematic lately. I lost quite a few friends in the past couple of weeks. My spring break completely sucked asshole (I didn't get anything accomplished that I had wanted to). School is kicking my ass. My room currently has no carpet because our pump broke so my room flooded. My depression is flip flopping every other minute. It's just a rather long list.


On a brighter note, I took my pharmacy test on Saturday morning and I passed!! I can keep my job and make a little bit more money now! Yay! =]


Anyways, still no news on the whole international blog. But, i'm hoping I'll hear more information soon because I am super excited to start that project! However, if it falls through.. I may have to do some digging up and start my own. =] 


Well, i've gotta get ready and head up to my next class. More soon!

Welcome!

Welcome to my Blog! Just as an introductory...


Stephanie is the name. I have quite a few nicknames: Steph, Ginge, Stephers, Stetnie, Stephie Kaye, Kaye; just to name a few. Feel free to make up a new one. I am constantly reading or writing. I like to act like a kid and go to the park to swing on the swings. I jump in puddles and I love the snow. It's hard for me to take a joke.. but I am working on it. I am an argumentative person and if you're on my bad side, well let's just say you don't want to be. Yet, I'm nice and kind and loving. I go to school in Chicago. I live for my friends and family. I love to go out with my friends and have a good time. I'm a die hard Chicago Blackhawk fan <3 And my two biggest passions in life are writing and reading.


~My friends mean the world to me so I love to spend my time with my besties.
~I'm absolutely positively in love with Gerard Butler, Johnny Depp, Ian Somerhalder, Matthew Gray Gubler and Ryan Reynolds.
~I love to read. Reading is a passion for me and since I'm an English major, I guess that's a good thing.
~I love to write. I would absolutely LOVE to have published books in the future. I feel as though I have a story to tell.
~Art is a huge part of my life. I may not be very good at it but I love to paint and draw. I have ever since I was little. Another part of art that I love is photography. I love taking pictures of nature and people.
~Music. I love Music. It's a way of expressing ones self. It's simply amazing.



I'm starting this international blog with some of my international friends. when it is up and running I will for sure let you know what the addy is. =]


I guess that's all for now.
