Pride and Prejudice.

Ooh-wee child.  You know what's up.  

I just wanted to post that becuase I've been thinking of this movie ALL WEEK and about how much I want to watch it.  I consider that a valid reward for this long, long, long week.  Seriously, it's been ca-rawling.  

Some good news over here- we got an offer on our house.  FINALLY.  Let's hope it all works out!

We're going house hunting this weekend, because my mom gets into town tomorrow!  This only means one thing: 

Is it sad that I'm partying with my parents?  Is it more sad that our idea of partying is a pint of ice cream and watching a movie in our pajamas?

I am not a college kid, fyi. 

So long. 

Going apartment CRAZY

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 § 0

So now that I'm almost officially living in a studio next year (which means I can decorate however the EFF I want!), I've been online furniture shopping like mad.

And here are my favorite items so far:

The Marquee Alphabet Light from

The Kitty Cat Clock from

This desk from Ikea: 
Imagine it filled with cute little knick-knacks!

This kettle from's by Paula Deen!!

This rug from Arbor Road on

Now I need to look for a shower curtain, but they've got some cute ones at Target!

I can't wait to take this leap into apartment living.  It's SO exciting!

Name change.

Alright, it's time for me to grow up a little bit.

Ok, not really.  And not yet, either.  I'm not planning on growing up until I'm at least 50.

BUT I thought it was about time to go ahead and change my blog title from Cooper Calamity to Life With Madi.   Cooper Calamity is an inside joke so I always knew it was weird and hard to understand, but I stuck with it.  Plus, my vlog for the Collegian is Life With Madi, so it only makes sense.

There's my reasoning.  My URL's still the same, though:!

I'll be signing off with my real name now,


My dad's a keeper.

Today, we decided to go down to Fort Collins so my dad could check out the house that I was thinking about living in next year....

And he wasn't a fan.  I agreed with what he said: the neighborhood was not the best (there was a body shop right next door to us and a mobile home park behind us) and it was at least 5 miles away from campus.  I must admit, I was discouraged...but my dad asked if there were any other options so I led him to an apartment complex I'd briefly read about online that had the studio apartment I'd wanted.  I wasn't enthused, though, I mean, I still wanted the house and the roommate and the YARD!  But then this lady gave us a tour of the studios and I sort of fell in love...they're small, kind of dorm-sized, but they've got a kitchen and a bathroom and one of them has a walk-in closet...

Needless to say, my dad and I went for a drive and decided that the studio was the best bet.  And it's right on campus, which means I don't have to waste gas every morning. 

So we went back to the complex, turned in my application, and put our money down.  It's a fast process with these apartments and I'm SO excited to move in. 

Afterwards, we were pretty tired...the drive to Fort Collins from Denver is a long one!  But on the way home, I mentioned Ikea, and Dad took a sudden exit and pretty soon, we were there!  It was so much fun looking around at furniture (we both need new stuff!) and spending time just doing random things. 

We came home, had pizza and a movie, and are emotionally preparing for The Hunger Games tomorrow (well, I am.)

I love this guy. 

Epic fail.

Today was a really great day until I checked my grade for my Psych test.

Honestly, it was such a shock because I thought I did so good.  I studied hard for it; I went to the review session; I took practice quizzes.

And I ended up doing worse than my last test; the one I thought I bombed.

Now, I sort of feel like a failure...which, I know, is a bit overdramatic considering that it's one test grade.  But the thing is, I have a scholarship riding on my grades, and, also, I'm extremely anal about grades.  I'm like Hermione Granger except not as smart.

I just sort of feel like crap, so I thought I'd vent here.....I'm going to go eat sushi with the pops tonight and hope that I can forget about this and just do better next time.

WHAT? Cooper's blogging twice in one day, WHAT???

I know.  But I have too much stuff on my mind to not.

Here's what I'm thinking about.
1.  New Girl is on tonight and I could NOT be more excited.

2. I may have met the girl I'm going to live with next year.  I really wanted to live alone, but I was thinking it would end up being WAY too expensive and that's not kosher.

3. I'm procrastinating studying for Psych but I really need to get on that.  I can't afford to fuck up this test- my scholarship is in grave danger!

4.  I have no idea what to do for my vlog for the collegian.  It's due tomorrow morning.

That's the end of that.

A quote from Mr. Roosevelt.

Good to remember, especially considering my day: another midterm that I absolutely CANNOT bomb, a meeting with a girl that I may potentially live with next year, and a studystudystudy attitude for the rest of my night.  


Have a wonderful day, 

Le drive-in.

Saturday, March 17, 2012 § 0

Well, let me preface my post about the drive-in and say that I spent about 80 dollars at Forever 21 yesterday.  EIGHTY.  Can you honestly believe....well...yeah, I can.  I bought, like, four things.  God, it really adds up.  Anyway, one of those tops is this sheer sleeveless shirt with velvet dots on it.  Me and the sister have currently been fighting over it.  

I bought so many clothes because I wanted to look awesome yesterday forrrr...duh duh duh duuuuh! The drive-in!
That amazing girl in the leopard print is my best friend, Shannon, and it was her 19th birthday a couple of days ago.  Therefore, yesterday we celebrated at the drive-in with a few of our friends and hilariousness ensued. 

Love that place.

This movie does things to me, okay?

Am I the only one thinking of Bullitt when I see this?

Gotta love a good car chase with a sexy man behind the wheel.

Miss Molly Style.

So you should all go check out my sister's style blog, Miss Molly Style.  Not only is she a fashion genius, but I made a guest appearance this week as her stylish sister.  Hooray for nepotism!

To see the rest of the outfit, click on the link to my sister's blog above.  

As for me, I'm going to go crawl in a hole (my dorm) and finish this torture (all the fracking homework I have this week) so I can be stress-free as soon as possible.  

So long, 

Going home.

Friday, March 2, 2012 § 0

Well, not home-home, exactly, because that would be to Keller, Texas....

But I'm going to Denver to visit people that make me feel like I'm parents!!

I can't wait.  We're going to order pizza and talk about things and I'm going to help them decorate that little temporary apartment that my dad has to stay in until my mom can come out here for a longer period of time and we can go house hunting!!

Look at how excited I am. 

Hasta la vista!
