Back-to School Monday

 Back-to-school! Back-to-school!! 
My first day back into a normal semester was a little bit rocky. I came home from my morning classes with a severe migraine. I ended up sleeping for the rest of the day. I've been having a little bit of trouble sleeping lately so it was nice to crash for a while. I love those naps where you go into a coma for a few hours. I absolutely hate restless sleep. If you have trouble sleeping like I do, I would suggest taking some melatonin on the nights you have trouble falling asleep. I always rave about melatonin to anyone who asks me about my insomina. I think a lot of people suffer from insomnia, but they just roll around in their beds all night instead of doing anything about it. You can purchase melatonin at any drugstore. I just bought a small bottle at Wal-Mart (even though I detest Wal-Mart with ever fiber of my being!) 

Well, I woke up around 8 p.m. feeling rather disoriented and HUNGRY! My sister took me to get some comfort food i.e. a Chick-fil-a grilled chicken sandwich! I got scolded for not eating all day. You see, I take a diabetic medication called Metformin and I start acting all kinds of cuckoo if I don't eat all of my meals. But in my defense, I was in a coma! So now I'm awake at 11:30 p.m. when I should be sleeping. I have an 8 a.m. class everyday, and I'm a zombie if I don't get 7 plus hours of sleep. I need tons of sleep! If you were wondering, 8 a.m. is way too early for me. I'm always telling my sister that I don't know how I will survive in the real world once I start working in my field of career. I'm really no good before 9 or 10 a.m. Theatre people are typically night owls so I definitely fit in with my peers.

 I just bought a really cute book called "The One Hundred" by Nina Garcia. I absolutely adore Nina Garcia! She is my favorite judge on Project Runway (before I stopped watching in protest after one of my favorite contestants was voted off!) Even if you aren't really into fashion, this book will appeal to you. It's Nina's list of the essential 100 items she has in her closet. And my favorite part about this book are the adorable illustrations done by Ruben Toledo. Nina just put out a new book called "The Look Book" that I must buy next time I go to the bookstore. Have any of you read or heard about Nina's books?

Now that summer is almost over, I'm thinking about starting my Monday Doodle feature back up again. What do you think, Lovelies?? 

Please send me some No-More-Migraine vibes!!
Hope your week has started off with a bang!!
