So I’ve been studying for different tests and assignments for the past couple of weeks and I decided to give myself a break today. I had a Spanish presentation today so I thought I deserved a nice little break from all my homework and assignments. So after my last class today, I came back to my room and took a nice long nap. Plus it was snowing outside so I was nice and warm in my bed.
Now, for the past hour or so I’ve been laying in bed, listening to classical music, and drinking tea. Needless to say, I feel classy. I might go to Whole Foods tomorrow and pick up more tea since I’m running low and I’m trying to taper off drinking coffee. Here’s the classical music mix I’ve been listening to in order to relax:
So I post about her enough that I felt like Miley Cyrus deserved her own Music Monday. She has probably been the most talked about celeb of the year and she’s probably my most talked about person in my life as well. I always have to update everyone in my classes on her latest antics and try to mimic them too. Although, I twerked before Miley tried it.
Over Thanksgiving Break, a video cameo out of a guy mimicking Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” music video on Chatroulette and it’s pretty hilarious. It does get creepy at times but that’s what makes it so funny. And if I ever were on Chatroulette I don’t think I’d be able to watch his whole performance but, nonetheless, he found someone to.
Today is another Thanksgiving and before I go downstairs and eat with my family I decided to do a quick blog before I go celebrate. Unfortunately I have homework to do today so I won’t be able to celebrate long but at least it’ll be nice to have some time to relax.
I missed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade today because I overslept but I’m sure I’ll catch clips online. I always think it’s funny that a lot of people try to skip Thanksgiving and as soon as Halloween ends go right forward to Christmas. To get people in a more Thanksgiving loving mood, here is a funny Thanksgiving video to get you in the mood:
So this Thanksgiving Break has consisted of me just doing homework, homework, and more homework. It’s getting to the final stretch of classes and my professors have been assigning the final assignments and projects already. Plus I have a big test coming up soon which I’ve also been nervous about/studying for.
Tomorrow I might take a break from studying since it’s Thanksgiving Day but it depends on how productive I am today. I’ve actually been doing quite well at keeping up with my homework schedule over break which is surprising because when I’m at school I can never keep up with it.
The books I’ll be studying from today.
Last night were the American Music Awards and they were highly entertaining. I didn’t watch the red carpet because
I wasn’t interested I missed it but I was able to catch the main show. I was looking forward to all the performances, including those by Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Imagine Dragons.
Of course my favorite performance was by Miley Cyrus who had quite the performance. No, she didn’t twerk. Instead, she just performed on stage with a giant animated cat behind her and it was highly entertaining. At one point the cat even started crying and did Miley’s signature tongue out pose. Unfortunately they made everyone wait for Miley to perform at the end of the show so occasionally I got bored and did homework or other things but it ended up being a great show.
Here’s a clip of Miley’s performance:

Tonight my friends Taylor and Karleen went with me to see the Hunger Games: Catching Fire downtown. I have to watch it and write a review of it for extra credit for one of my classes which is great because I would have seen it anyway. I’m not sure if it was because I saw the first movie on DVD and didn’t get the full theatre experience but the second movie was by far better and of better quality. Needless to say, it was amazing.

Jennifer Lawrence stole the show for me. She looked great, her acting was great, and she put so much into her character that it was commendable. I even almost shed a tear at some of the parts she was in. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were also good in the movie too. I usually don’t like movies longer than an hour and a half but I was so enthralled that I wish it had gone on longer. So it ended up being a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone. We caught an early showing so we didn’t even have to stay up late!

So I’ve been inspired by my lack of being able to not spend money to become a hipster. I feel like shopping and, life in general, would be so much cheaper if I became one! …Except when I shop at Whole Foods…. To embark on my new hipster lifestyle, I’ve decided to start listening to The Beatles.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But everyone likes The Beatles.” Which is true, but I feel like it’s a hipster thing to do to like something everyone else likes just to be a hipster. It makes sense in my mind…. They also make perfect study music so they’ve been getting me through the day. Now I have “Eleanor Rigby” on repeat. It’s my favorite song of theirs.
So for the past month I’ve been in the library more than I have in all four years of my college experience. Not only have I been studying for the LSAT, but I’ve also been working on projects, papers, and assignments for all my class. I guess senior year is finally heating up! I’ve been in my same spot almost every day working on something different. This weekend was my break but I’m slowly getting back into the groove again.
Miley Cyrus has mostly been getting me through my homework on my study playlist. I also have to transcribe an interview which means my time with Miley will be cut short. Thankfully blogging this has given me an excuse to procrastinate from finishing the rest of my work this morning. On the bright side, the weather is nicer today so I don’t have to wear a jacket!
My daily view in the library.
What do you get when André has money in the bank to blow? Weird online purchases! Last week I was randomly up until 2 AM and I got the
funny weird idea that I needed to buy something online. This was probably in response to my desire to always get mail. If no one will send you mail, the next best thing is to send some to yourself! …I have friends, I promise…..
So I happened to stumble across the Taylor Swift website and saw that she was having an awkwardly early holiday sale. I can’t say that I like Taylor enough to buy things with her face on it but I’m not one to pass up a good deal. The bundle package I got had 2 rubber bracelets, a Taylor notebook, a sound amplifier for my phone, and 6 guitar picks. I don’t have a guitar, I don’t plan on using the notebook, nor the other things but it was all only $8! So if anyone was looking for those items, I’d be more than happy to share the wealth.
Me being very excited about my purchase.
Last week Eminem‘s new album came out and, although I haven’t been able to listen to the whole thing, I have heard a couple songs from it and I really like them! His first single “Berzerk” is one of my favorite songs of 2013 just by how all over the place it is and reminds me of the Beastie Boys.
His new song “Monster” with Rihanna is also one of my new favorites. It’s nothing like their previous song “Love The Way You Lie” and hopefully it won’t get overplayed as much as LTWYL was as well. It awkwardly sounds like it could be a Flo Rida song but hey, at least it’s catchy! Hopefully the video for it is good!
