Friday Five

1. Right now I am listening to Tony Lucca's performance of Baby One More Time for about the millionth time. I can't get enough of this song. It was just such an awesome performance. I actually had to work on Monday night, which I was not thrilled about, because it meant I had to DVR The Voice. When I got off work, I read a text from my sister saying "OMG! Did you watch The Voice yet? You'll love it." She was right.

Tony is amazing and I really think he could win. I mean, I suppose I might be a little biased, since I've been a fan of his for over 10 years. But still! Funny thing is, my brother was a fan of Dia Frampton long before she was on the Voice. We just have good taste in music! ;)

Go Team Adam!

2. I have always loved lip balm and lip gloss, but I never liked Chapstick. Until now. Their limited edition flavor Orange Cream Burst is so good. It was a little difficult to find, but totally worth it.
3. The other night I was over at my old high school for one of my part-time jobs and I got to talking to the theater teacher about my WIP. He seemed really interested in it, and I liked having an opportunity to talk about it. I liked it so much that I couldn't shut up. ha. He was really supportive and encouraging, which is always helpful. I am always a little nervous about telling people what I'm working on, but so far I have only gotten positive reactions.

4. One of my good friends lives in Omaha and I've been there several times to visit her. I think Omaha is a great city! I always have fun there. We've been talking about getting together sometime this summer, and apparently Orbitz is one step ahead of me. They sent me an email saying:

Got your eye on Omaha? We've already planned a trip for you

Oh really, Orbitz? How did they know?? I haven't even looked up flights recently. Unfortunately, the trip they planned for me will cost $1,000. Um, thanks but no thanks.

5. Hoping to do some major writing this weekend. Having 4 jobs doesn't leave me much time for writing, and I hate that. I am surrounded by inspiration but I'm just so tired. 

One piece of advice I've read is to just write any spare moment you have. I read somewhere that Lauren Oliver wrote Before I Fall on her Blackberry. I am so curious about this. How did she do that? I had a chance to ask her at one of her book signings, and I forgot. I suck! 

How do you find time for writing?

Happy Friday! Hoping to have some changes to the blog soon. Stay tuned!


  1. On her blackberry, really??? I am going to have to check this out :D
    4 jobs must take a toll on your time!
    It must have been great to talk about your WiP in that way! Have a wonderful weekend :D

    1. I know! I really want to find out how she wrote on her Blackberry! I wonder if I could try that on my iPhone?

      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a good weekend!

  2. Yes, I think about that story about Lauren Oliver every time I feel like I have no time to write. I really have no excuses. :-\

    1. You are way busier than I am! I have no excuses either.
