Life Can Change in an Instant

It has been a crazy week. One of my best friends has had a BAD week. She graduated two Sundays ago and that very night out of the blue her boyfriend just started pushing her around so hard that his college room mate heard and came in to stop him and threatened to call the police. Her boyfriend then proceeded to fight with him and then two other roommates that came to try to help. My friend was very lucky that these guys came to help her, and I am very grateful they did. She stayed with one our friends for a couple days and is home this weekend trying to sort things out. She was so in love with this boy and thinking they would get engaged this summer. He had never done anything like this before, but that is what is so scary. They were not fighting, he was not drunk, it just came out of no where, and it was BAD. He is at least a foot taller than her, and she is so petite, she was bruised up and swollen but I am so glad it wasn't worse.

I absolutely understand that she had all of these amazing plans for their future and had finally met, "the one" so it would be SO hard to deal with the aftermath of breaking up with him, but I feel like it HAS to be done. Surprisingly the opinions on what she should do are split down the middle. I feel like college is pretty fun and carefree compared to real adult life, so with added pressure there is a real good chance that it will only get worse. I love my friend so much and I just want her to be safe. It is so hard because there is really nothing I can do to help her, just be there to talk it through with her from 400 miles away (wish I could be there). She is so beautiful and strong and smart and loving and she deserves all the best and that is all I want for her. But how do I help her get through this? I want to kill this guy for hurting one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and I just hope that everything works out okay for her because she holds such a big piece of my heart.

Extra cash!

Hey everyone,

I was really short on cash so I started taking surveys for some money. You need to get 1000 points to receive a $50 check in the mail. Most surveys are 30 points but I have seem them range from 20 to 100. I usually take them while watching tv or trying to avoid working! Check it out if you are interested! I received my first check and was very skeptical but I cashed it and its easy money.


Where Did Those Muscles Come From...

I am so excited! I have been wanting an eliptical for quite a long time. I loved working out on them in college and need to lose some lbs. for the summer at the lake house :) As I am sure you know, they can be quite pricey...eeek! Luckily my coworkers sold me one for $100 and I am SO excited! I got it all set up on Sunday and have worked out each day since. I think I forgot since college how many muscles it uses and how hot I get when I do it! At least I can watch tv while I am doing it :)

Do a lot of you have exciting season finales this week? I love Chuck which had its finale last night and NCIS is tonight!! Now what should I watch?
