'Twas the night before Dead Week...

Here at ISU, the week before finals is endearingly referred to as Dead Week.  Basically it's a whole bunch of studying.  Professors can't assign new material to be learned.  Projects must be due beforehand.  Ands lots of reviewing goes on.

A lot of students freak out about Dead Week.  But me?  I just bake brownies.  ;)

I would love to have a dead week. Our school considered it, but the idea wasn't very popular. I actually need a dead week though. Our teachers pile on papers and tests along with final painting projects which take hooooooours to complete. I think you should call up my school and give them a talkin' to about dead week :)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
