One of my favorite addictions is rubber ducks. Rubber Ducks?!?!?!?!? what in the world? Why would someone be addicted to rubber ducks? It starts at my freshman year when I became friends with CUPCAKE!!!! As a freshman at K-State I made what I consider to be one of the best choices of my life and applied and was accepted to live in Alpha of Clovia. A house which I define as all cooperative living, part scholarship with aspects of a sorority. Sara Elliott aka Cupcake was a junior in the house at the time and became a fast friend of mine. Being a freshman called for me making a lot of adjustments and Cupcake helped me with those. Cupcake has a LOT of rubber ducks and whenever I would go to her room and I would see them I would smile. If I was down going to her room, even on the rare occasion she wasn't in there, would make me smile. She and her awesome roomie Susie, always said that I could hang out or hide out in there whenever I needed to. That is when I began to really love rubber ducks and they became a good addiction of mine

Although I do have what I consider to be a good addiction I also have a really, really, really bad addiction. I drink wayyyyyy to much DR. PEPPER and MT. DEW. When I get really stressed it gets worse and I don't even want to begin to count how many cans I drank/how many sonic drinks I would have. I love Sonic!!!!! and I know what Sonic is good, which ones aren't, how to tell a good car hop, and when the best times to go are. Yes. It was a slight problem. there were days when I would have more than 100 oz of Dr. Pepper......ya kinda an issue. Dr. Pepper is my main addiction, but I would settle for Mt. Dew if I had too
Below next to the Mt. Dew Truck is myself and Tina in Holton. Those were my pre-dr. pepper days when Mt. Dew was my favorite (and Tina's favorite). Myself and Brynee and pictured drinking our favorite Dr. Pepper Drinks from sonic. hers of Vanilla Dr. Pepper with extra Vanilla and my Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper Easy Ice. And my big sis A-Mac's favorite is Dr. Pepper easy ice. And Katie's favorite is Vanilla Lime Coke with no ice. Ya I told you I went to Sonic to much.
This summer I will be located in Linn County, Kansas (two counties south of Johnson) with my headquarters being Mound City. I will be the Intern for Kansas Reasearch and Extension there.
I hope to replace my Dr. Pepper Addiction with healthier addicitions including religion and exercise. Also starting June 1st I plan on sending a letter every day of the summer (let me know if you want one!!!!)
Stay tuned for my adventures there and my progress on this whole no Dr. Pepper thing. So far since schools gotten out I've had one every other day or so.....
That's all for now!
