10. "I'm letting life hit me until it gets tired" Lol relatable 

11. Ryan did all his piano playing himself - talenttttt

12. "There's a nicer way to say that KAREN" lol

13. People act like they have never heard jazz before... don't be so shocked people. Seb is just doing his thing (and his carols were so sarcastic it was hilarious).

14. "Lady why you be trippin' like that" -Unenthusiastic audition lady. I'm dead :P

15. THIS SCENE MAKES THE MOVIE (Mia's dancing/"serious firefighter" + Seb's "curt"/putting on his sunglasses are the bestttt)

16. TAP SHOES WOULD GET SO RUINED ON CONCRETE NOOOOO - but "it's wool" is a classic line from "A Lovely Night" haha

17. Seb walked her all the way to her car when his was like right out front of the party aw. 

18. "Can I hide in the bathroom" haha amazing

19. "As long as it's PURE jazz".... Asking Mia on a date for "research" is so smoothhhhh

20. I love how Seb just starts dancing with a random lady and her husband is like WTF

21. Ahhhh the awkwardness of forgetting her date with Greg

22. DUMP HIS BUTT MIA YOU DESERVE BETTER --- FOLLOW THE PURE JAZZZZZZ

23. Why this date is the cutest:

28. I love how he literally wants to call his jazz club Chicken on a Stick :P

29. Seb's confused face when he first hears The Messengers' music is how I react to most of the stuff that happens in my life haha. 

30. Mia's whole wardrobe is bomb.

31. Mia's reaction to "Start a Fire" is also how I react to most of the things life throws at me :P

32. The fire alarm going off and the record stopping right at the end of their argument makes it hurt my heart even more :'(

33. SEB just SKIP the photo shoot my god your relationship depends on ittttt don't be a jerkkkkk

34. (Lol but that photographer is hilarious... "Bit your lip like you're concentrating" :P)

36. The old man throwing a book at Seb is my fav character. Stick it to him old man - he deserves it!

37. "How did you find me" "The house in front of the library" AW 

38. What an audition; you rock Mia!

39. "I'm always gonna love you" AAHHHH no my heart... not the break up scene! :(

44. Hmmmm I wonder what song he will play??

45. As someone who used to play the trumpet, I appreciate that high note in the "flashbacks"

46. And to hurt my heart even more the flashbacks of what "could be" are just so darn cute. Like Mia and Seb make a wonderful family (even though she does look like a minion in her yellow shirt and overalls) :''''''''''(

47. You always think there is hope that it has all been a trick until it cuts back to reality with AVERAGE FRICKIN OLD MAN :(

48. But at least they both got their dreams.

My Experience: Junior Year of College!

Hey cupcakes! In honor of finals almost being over (sooooo close!), I thought I would continue my tradition of writing a post about what I learned each year of college (read my Sophomore Year post if you haven't already!). Let's jump right into it!

1. It hits you junior year that you are almost an "adult" - A professor mentioned how we will be graduating next year, and it totally made me realize that I am graduating next year and will be in the real world soon! After making this realization, I had to really evaluate my life and make sure I was headed exactly where I wanted to be.

2. It feels so nice to know what career I will be going into! - I kinda decided last year that I wanted to go into accounting, but this year really helped me discover the exact path I want to take after graduation. It was also super nice to be able to take some really in-depth classes now that all of my pre-reqs were taken care of last year! :)

3. Friendships (and people) change; but that is okay - Last year I wrote about how I had a really great roommate, and, unfortunately, she really changed this year. This impacted my living situation, but I am happy to say that it made me a stronger person and friend to those that have been there for me through all the drama. <3

4. The idea of college ending is really sad - I have started making a list of all the things I HAVE to do next year that I haven't done yet, because I won't be on campus after that (and there is so much I still want to do)!

5. Mental health is everything - As many of you know, this year has been quite the stressful one for me... But it has helped me evaluate my mental health and the steps I need to take to make it better, so I am extremely grateful that this year pushed me to work on myself for the better.

6. Family is a priority - After realizing that college is almost over, I made the realization that family is a huge priority of mine... So I have started to make it my mission to keep in contact (and see) as many people as I can!

7. College (and life) is too short so do everything you can! - Take a leap of faith and try new things <3 You never know what awesome experiences you will have because of it!

DIY: Easy Stress Ball

Hey cupcakes! As it is final season for some (including me haha!), I thought I would make a post with a fun DIY that can also help you all relieve some stress. I think stress balls are super nifty to have around, and I love to play with mine!

Image result for balloon stress ball

What You Need
-A balloon (or two if you want an extra strong ball)
-A funnel (or some other way to fill the balloon)
-Rice (or sand/flour if you want a softer stress ball)

What To Do:
1. Place the funnel into the opening of the balloon to make it easier to fill. If you don't have a funnel, you can stretch out the mouth of the balloon and find some other container to pour the rice inside.
2. Fill the balloon with rice! I recommend doing this in small increments... As soon as the balloon is the size you want, stop adding more :)
3. Tie the balloon off with a knot. Make sure that the balloon can still be "squished".. If it can't, you might need to take some rice out!
4. Squeeze away to relieve some stress!

My Weekend in Pictures!

Hey cupcakes! Sorry for not posting at my usual time, but I have been super busy studying for my finals. I am super duper duper excited to finally be done with this semester, so I thought I would share what I did this weekend through some pictures. Enjoy! :)

So as I mentioned, finals are here! I have an exam tomorrow, two exams the next day, a 20 page paper due, and another exam at the end of the week. *Sigh* This weekend I spent most of my time reviewing notes, doing practice problems, and other various forms of studying, so I think this image really sums it up :P


On Saturday, my dorm had an event that I stopped by for a bit. There were so many cute floral arrangements - I am so ready for Spring!


I go to church at 8:30 AM every Sunday, and today IT WAS FREEZING RAIN. :( I was really sad because the sidewalks were super slippery and this ground does not look very Spring-y now does it?



You probably can't really tell from this picture, but there is legit ice hanging off of this branch. I took this walking back from a study session today, and (again) it made me sad because I want Spring!


Lol - that is basically it! The rest of today includes more studying... Yay. What did you do this weekend? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!

Love,
Jenna (who wishes it would be Spring already!)
