Speaking of the word "lovin'", as campus brand ambassador for Love Your Melon (www.loveyourmelon.com), I will be heading to the Yale-New Haven Smilow Pediatric Cancer Center and giving out hats to child cancer patients! For each Love Your Melon hat purchased, one is donated to a child cancer patient. This Friday in my dorm's common room, I created a letter-writing event where students at my college can come and write letters to the patients with kind words and with things that will make them happy. Prince Harry will be helping to host it with me and will be dressing up like Superman when I donate the hats (the theme is superheroes!); he will be taking pictures with the kids and signing autographs "from Superman" !! It seems like the perfect time to have such an event because my mother just finished her own chemotherapy treatment just last Thursday!! I love her so, so much and I'm so incredibly proud of her strength and courage as a human being.

Also (sorry if you're squeamish and/or a guy who gets scared of girly issues) my tummy is killin' me. Every month, Children's Liquid Advil becomes my new boyfriend and my heat pack becomes my new best gurlfrand. I really don't know why I get pains so severely, I think it's because I'm a bit protein deficient?? I've been working out more, but I really need to make sure my diet is more balanced (read: less sugar that isn't from fruit or other natural sources…no, in this case, chocolate does not count as a natural source). I've heard that yoga and/or meditation, taking short walks, warm showers, constant naps, and being… active ;) can help a lot. If any of you readers have suggestions PLEASE send me a message on the contact form on the "SAY HELLO!" page because every month I'm literally suffering :/ . Oh, and I don't want to take birth control pills, so that's not an option for me (even though many people do in fact use them for this purpose, it's just because I have a pill-swallowing phobia *sigh* gotta learn, gotta learn…and studies show there's a higher risk for breast cancer which clearly after what my mom has gone through I am in no desire to go through that !)

Other than that, just a TON of work to get done. Not sure what classes to take next semester. Not sure what dorm to live in next semester. Must.Clean.Dorm.Room. The Spring weather is so close, I can feel it *sticks short-sleeve-clad arm into the breeze* ! My job interview for Hollister Co. outlet is on Friday, too - ahhh! I want the job so badly!! I would only be working weekends, so I can still have time for all of the other lovely things I want to spend my time with. I'll keep ya posted!
Until Next Time,
