Fun Fact Friday {5}

     Back again for another round of Emily's Friday link-up! If you have read my past two posts then you know that this past week definitely hasn't been very "fun" for me. A brief health update: I went to the local ER today because my illness was only getting worse. I found out that I was misdiagnosed with strep throat, and I have some unnamed illness that a lot of people in this area are coming down with this season. There is no treatment for it, so I basically have to rest until my symptoms dissapear. It was dissapointing news, but I am glad that I didn't have strep or mono (which I was also tested for). Sadly the staff of the ER wasn't that great and I actually had to file a complaint about the Dr. that saw me because he was very rude. Anywayssssss..... back to FFF!

  1. I am developing a love for Bollywood movies. Netflix has a wonderful collection of them on instant watch (with subtitles!). Who doesn't love a good love story mixed in with several song and dance numbers and some beautiful outfits?! They are addicting. :-) Seriously, if you ever have 2 1/2 hours to kill than watch one!
  2. I want to learn how to sew patterns to be able to make some of my own clothes and accessories. 
  3. This news is actually quite exciting... next year at school I'm living in one of the student apartments! They are on campus which means I don't have to commute to school and can still live near my other friends in the dorms, but I get a full kitchen and larger bathroom! The girls that I'll be living with are sweethearts, we went out to dinner last weekend to get to know each other. We will all be cooking and baking a lot and using our kitchen as much as we can!
  4. I collect keychains and have done so for years. At home I think I now have over 60. I pick one or two up at most places I vacation at and my grandma and some friends have also given me a lot! Ironically I have only two on my actual set of keys though. I have a Vera Bradley zip ID case and a tiny New York keychain and I don't really change them up!
  5. I prefer using Twitter on my phone (I'm a bit obsesssed with emoji).
