Major Headache

I'm going to be entering my third year of COLLEGE.

And I feel like an idiot.

All through high school, I wanted to be a sports journalist. Then at orientation for college, I changed my mind and switched my major to Criminal Justice and then to Law and then back to Criminal Justice and then last year to Forensics.

That is what I want to do with my life. But I feel so late to make a dramatic change!

I was making a copy of my class schedule for this year and I couldn't help but feel like a failure! Intro to Bio? Intro to Chem? FRESHMEN CLASSES! But I'm supposed to be a JUNIOR.

I feel like I waited to long to change my major! I know I want to do this but I'm just so freaked out I'll never finish school! Its not until this upcoming semester that I'll be taking major related courses. I mean I'm not even in CALCULUS, I'M A 3RD YEAR AND PRECALC.

I feel like for being a forensics major, I should have already memorized the periodic table of elements and tackle the most difficult math problems! And should have so much more knowledge!

I mean granted, my minor is Criminal Justice and I'm done with that and I have had such great CRJ classes, but I just feel like I shouldn't feel this lost so late!

Maybe I should have done community college for 2 years and then transferred instead of doing all this discovering at a private and pricey university. But 2 years ago, I was not the same person. I was Chelsea the girl who can't stand blood and wants to write about the Yankees. Now I'm Chelsea the girl who has gotten an iron stomach and wants to work in a lab dealing with things that would have made me pass out.

But 2 years ago, I knew I got into a great school that was great for my major. And thank goodness, my school is still awesome since I changed my major.

I don't know, I just feel so late in the game. And down. I mean I'm only 20. But I always wanted to finish in 4 years. AND THEN GRAD SCHOOL. Ugh!

What's In My Purse?! Revisted!

Hello Lovelies!

So I was reading one of my gossip mags/tabloids/guilty pleasures and I saw they had a "What's In My Bag" thing with someone who I don't know. So I thought I'd do a new what's in my purse! I love these!

Inside my MBMJ Pretty Little Nylon Hobo in Black, which is probably my most favorite purse eveeer!



  • Wallet full of nothing! Actually I have too many debit cards with not enough money on them. Including one to an account I haven't even opened!
  • ID Case attached to my keys, for my school and work IDs and whatever else
  • Pink Swiss Army Knife + Mini Mag Flashlight = Must Haves!
  • Don't carry a makeup bag but I do carry a little mirror, chapstick, whatever lip product I'm wearing that day and, of course, bandaids that look like crime scene tape and hand sanitizer
  • Sunglasses that are not prescription meaning, they're useless for when I need to, I don't know, SEE.
  • A purse hook, because that is how I roll, with a germ free purse (kinda, not really), Its the crystal thing, totally subtle.
  • People and US Weekly magazines because they're guilty pleasures and I always start an article at work and then HAVE to finish it and thus buy it.
  • Altoids because I don't do gum.
  • Planner because I like plans
  • iPod Touch (whatever the newest is) because I like to touch my iPod? And 2 pairs of headphones: one a good pair the other the crap ones my iPod came with!
  • LG Dare cellphone, which looks like a brick compared to everyone else's phones.
  • Pink glittery coin purse
  • Pink blinged out pen that was in Staple's little "bling" display. I know, how awesome and gaudy are bedazzled office supplies?!

And Max wanted to say Hi! Actually he is tired. So probably a "SERIOUSLY, I WANNA GO TO BED"


What's in your purse?! What are you rocking?! :)

Return Of The Pocket Rocket!! And Magic Lids!!

Hello Lovelies!

What, a beauty post?! I know, its been forever!! But I got a few products that I wanted to share!!

If you're an avid reader of the blog, then you know I've reviewed both Urban Decay's Pocket Rocket Lipgloss (link here: Click!) and Urban Decay's Primer Potion (link here: Click!). So for those full reviews check those out!

Anyways! I recently bought UDPP in "Sin" and UD's Pocket Rocket in "Eric".


First, the UDPP! I loved the original and had to order a new one so I figured I'd try it out in "Sin". Its a shimmery champagne color and enhances and adds shimmer to your eyeshadow while protecting it from creasing.

It can be too shimmery and a hot mess if you use too much, even more so when you use an already shimmery shadow. But just a small dab will do the job and not cause a glitter bomb.


Plus, it looks gorgeous all by itself! For a little wash of color!


It looks a lot like MAC's Bare Study paintpot but lasts all day and doesn't crease when on its own. (Don't mind the mascara smudges took this right before I went to work today)!

Overall: A- Its a great, product but just need to be aware that too much can make a mess! Really enhances your nude shadows!

Now onto UD's Pocket Rocket in "Eric" it is a super juicy red but completely wearable for everyday. It gives my lips a "oh, I just had a red Popsicle " red. Its not a harsh red, very subtle and almost innocent.


And like my other UDPR it makes my lips look awesome, fuller and juicy!


Overall: A- again! Only because I wish it was more pigmented but then again my lips are overly pigmented.

And now a bonus mini haul, because well, I haven't blogged in a while!!

This is why I have been not buying makeup! You're looking at my last 3-4 weeks paychecks and I have more on the way...books have been extra expensive this year!

And I got some new bags for school. The left is a Vera Brady large duffel in "Very Berry Paisley" and the right is my new school bag from Juicy Couture I scored from Zappos!

Phew, this was long! Would you try the UDPP in "Sin"? Or have tried a UDPR?
