Me: I did not know that. That is crazy, they already have so much money.
School friend: I'm going to make a sex video and start dating chocolate boys. Screw Social Work!
Late night thoughts
It’s 3am. I have an appointment to get my tires changed over at 9am and then I will be up at school until at least 7pm. Why can’t I sleep? I have too much on my mind. Today a coworker suddenly lost her 6 month old son. He just stopped breathing while he was taking a nap and they were never able to revive him. My heart is breaking for her and her husband. They were typical new...

30 Before 30 - 26. See the Northern Lights
Yay! Finally! I’ve only been in AK for almost 4 years! I don’t have any pictures to show you because apparently my camera isn’t good enough to capture the Aurora. When my BFF Allison came to visit over spring break we took a road trip up to Fairbanks and Chena Hot Springs. We hung out in a heated yurt on the top of a mountain for 4 hours in -30 degree weather only to see the best...
30 Before 30 - 19. Have sex somewhere I shouldn't
I didn’t think that this would be one of the first to cross off the list, but here we are! I’m going to have to be annoyingly coy about this one because I can’t say that I’m really proud of where this place was. But, you can’t plan things in life and it happened and it was amazing and I’ll just leave it at that. Check!

Anonymous asked: Hi Samantha! I'm sorry to hear you've been having a rough time over the past few weeks, but I'm so glad you're happier now! Also, I don't think I ever sent you a message after the post that tumblr buddies was ending in April, but I wanted to say that you've got me until the original end date in September! :) Keep your chin up! <3 TB
I twisted my knee bad falling on the ice (TWICE!) last night and I’m holed up in my apartment for the next few days trying to rest it. What should I watch on Netflix? Any good articles I should read that I might have missed out on in my Internet hiatus? Thanks friends. I have to end this with a question?

- Taking a 2 hour nap at 7:30pm is a terrible idea. I’ve been developing the worst sleeping patterns (again) lately and it would be cool if I could get it under control once and for all. - In the past month I have gone from following over 500 people to following under 150. My life is so much busier now (I can’t Internet at work, the horror!) and I didn’t want to cut Tumblr out...
