Music Monday

I was running on the beach this morning looking for good music to work out to on my phone when this song popped into my head. I haven't listened to Justice in ages but this clip is pretty fun to watch {and the band is great} so I thought I'd share it here

What do you run to? I left my old iPod in Delaware so I'm struggling to find good upbeat music that isn't too annoying {I'm 25 going on 75, and those pounding beats of dance and pop give me the worst headache.}

Have a great week, friends!

We're on Each Other's Team

Today I take The Big Test, and I could not go into this exam confidently without having a handful of wonderful people in my corner.

Thank you to my Father, who shelled out a hefty chunk so I could afford the study videos I've been using the past three weeks

Thank you to my friends and cousins- the ones who have texted and called me and cheered me on, the roommate who sent me this framed A.A. Milne quote that I've had on my desk day in and day out

Medieval Russian Tolkien Illustrations

These illustrations popped up on my feed from theonering.net
As an Orthodox Christian I find them kind of fascinating- some look more iconographic than others,
which I'm not sure how I feel about.
Some of them are a bit confusing- I'm not sure, for example, which scene this image is supposed to depict.
Any guesses?

I thought perhaps it had something to do with King Theoden,
But if so, why is there an eagle around?

Ever since Peter showed me this Tenacious D video,
It's felt like a Foo Fighter kind of week.
Hope you all have a good one :)

Birthday Weekend: Islands of Adventures!

So basically,
My fiance is amazing.
When we were dress-shopping in Orlando, we stayed right next to Universal's Islands of Adventures.
I saw the Hulk in the horizon as we left our hotel room,
and it crossed my mind that Peter would probably love it.
Apart from Busch Gardens Tampa, it's probably the best Florida theme park for big kids;
It just has so many roller coasters and fun rides.
I called him up that weekend and mentioned it to him,
and his immediate reaction was, "Ok Georgia, I'll take you for your birthday"
See why I want to marry this guy??

Keeper, obvs 






































So we did a little research, because Peter is always the man with the plan.
These are just some photos from our trip
And I'll try to intersperse it with some of the tips we got and found useful ourselves :)

1. Parking-

We reallyyyy wanted to be able to do everything before the afternoon rainstorms settled in, and especially before the massive throngs of people came and produced massive hour-long rides. For this reason, we left SUPER early, got there at 9, and paid the extra 20 bucks to park closer to City Walk. It was definitely worth it!

2. Game Plan

So the park is basically divided into seven "islands" arranged in a ring. Obviously, some areas are more popular than others, so rather than just go through the islands in order, we tried to do the rides and parts of the park that we thought would be most popular first. When I was a kid and the park had first opened, that was Marvel Superhero Island

Hello! I'm in Delaware!
I've been waiting  a long time to say that....
also, I am unbelievably happy to be reunited with my partner in crime
and studying like a crazy person, so expect the posts to be few and far between this month.
