Happy Monday, readers!
Today was my first day of classes as a sophomore – and I’m already stressed! I had three of my five classes today and have some form of work in each class, plus newspaper articles, and this! My cute Lilly Pulitzer planner surely is coming in handy already as I am trying to figure out how I will be managing my time between classes, homework, sorority, newspaper, yearbook, blogging, and going to the gym. Just so much to do, but so little time! But I know that I will be able to get it all under control like I always do!
Enough about my stress -let’s talk about something more exciting, MTV’s Video Music Awards that aired last night. I am a total celebrity addict – so when they all gather in one place, dressed to the nines, receiving awards I am the happiest girl ever. Last night me and a bunch of my friends gathered around a television, ordered food, and talked about every movement that was made on the television screen.
So, here it is – My Monday Musts based on the Video Music Awards!
1. The N*Sync Reunion
When I tell you readers that I cried when N*Sync appeared on the television screen in front of me and I began to cry, I honestly mean that tears came streaming down my cheeks. One of my all-time dreams in life was for my favorite boy band would get back together -and for just a few short moments, they did. The 90’s girl who had N*Sync posters lined up on her walls, had every CD/biography made, and even had the N*Sync board game came busting out of me at full throttle. This, in my opinion, is one of the greatest moments in VMA history. I would have enjoyed it more if the group sang a few more songs, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers!
2. The Haylor Drama
My two favorite performers are Taylor Swift and One Direction. So when Taylor and One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles, began dating (forming the couple name of Haylor) – I was ecstatic. Though the two have broken up since then, drama seems to follow them every where. For starters, for those of you who are not also celebrity obsessed, let me fill you in on a dirty little secret – Taylor Swift’s song, I Knew You Were Trouble, was written about Harry. When Swift accepted her Moon Man award for Best Female Video, she stated, “I also want to thank the person who inspired this song because he knows exactly who he is, because now I’ve got one of these.” The camera then panned over to Harry, who was awkwardly chewing his gum. It was clear that he did not know where to look, making any attempt possible to avoid eye contact with the camera. Next to him, his band mates, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, were smirking at Styles. Later on, when One Direction got on the stage to accept their award for Song of the Summer (for Best Song Ever), Taylor turned to pal, Selena Gomez, who was sitting next to her and dropped the f-bomb while stating Styles should “shut up” when Styles was speaking.
3. Deena from Jersey Shore‘s Dress
My Jersey Girl is coming out when I admit that I always stalk the Jersey Shore cast’s Instagrams – especially before award shows. I love to see their dresses, especially since many of the girl’s have matured from their young days of crazy, short dresses. My favorite dress of the night went to Deena – who looked so absolutely stunning and so classy. She showed off her new figure with a dress that fit her so perfectly. Her Instagram post today, showing off her transformation over the past 4 years made it even more clear, in my eyes, that she was best dressed of the night!
Enjoy the rest of your week, readers. I am excited to see what the rest of Syllabus Week has in store for me!
