When I moved to California
my best friends became the
Sour Patch Kids.
Sour Patch Kids.
This is what drives me nuts, I've been running quite a bit since I moved here in September. And I have lost like 10lbs.
But idk I think I gained like 3-4lbs when I went home for the holidays. ehhhhh.
ANYWAY… blah blah exercise is like 30% of your weight loss it's all about what you EAT.
Okay thanks mom, thanks Kammie, thanks Biggest Loser.
But hey my problem with that is, have you ever noticed fries cost $1 and a salad costs $10?
Umm who decided those prices?? cause... I think America's obesity problem could cut down if someone would just change that up a bit, cause I sure know it would help me stop buying the two for one tacos at Jack in the box & order that Chicken wrap whatever that is $4.99
I'M CHEAP SORRY.
For the year 2014 I decided I was going to grocery shop more and buy healthier food, and guess what? I did that for the whole month of January and now I'm broke.
Shopping at Ralphs buying all the healthy food each week checking out and my total is $100. WTF when I bought crap food my total was like 40$.
BUT IT'S SO WORTH IT RIGHT? be quiet.
Umm excuse me, I'm trying to eat better here. I'm trying to lose weight, not my apartment. I got other billz to pay world.
I really have nothing other to say other than I just needed to write my feelings about the fact that I hate that healthy foods cost SO FRIGGIN much money, and I'm sorry cooking for 1 is so hard.
ONE MORE THING
I'm also sorry that I'm a girl and once a month all I want to do is take chocolate shower and shove inn & out burger down my mouth, and sip my drinks through sour patch straws.
Also, I went to the biggest loser finale last night and I was all inspired and crap by everyone that lost so much weight but then I went home and was like yeah a donut sounds awesome right now.
|Look, that's me in the back, I was totally on tv.|
Thank you, you can have my autograph.

So it's that time of year again where we get to do taxes, and EVERY single year I always say… WTF is going on!?
Before I start I would like to thank YouTube & Pinterest for teaching me everything I didn't learn in a classroom.
I honestly don't beileve school prepares you for the real world. I think the real world prepares you for the real world.
How come I am 22-years-old and I still am confused about…
I know we end up paying someone to do these anyway, but how come I don't know any of the words that the tax lady is EVER saying to me, I'm like... "umm sweet just get me my money."
How to fill out a W2
I feel like I have filled out 98294 of these and every single time I don't know if on line 6 & 7 I am supposed to put 0 or 1. Or then on line 5 am I supposed to put 2… or is it all ZEROS???
Basic Car Maintenance
What is it like 50 times a year someone looks at my car and says, when was the last time you got your oil changed? Umm I don't know, where do I do that? Oh my tire looks flat? sweet… What's that noise my car is making? is that gas smell coming from mine? Ummmmm GRANDPA? HELP!
How to pay bills
Like I get it, I owe this much money by this day, but I don't know how to fill this ish out… and am I getting jimped? Is this price normal or way high?
How to build credit the right way
Every time I go to TJ MAXX I want to buy the rewards card, but I don't know if I am supposed to or not. I WANT DELTA SKY MILES so I can travel everywhere. Should I pay the minimum payment each month or more, should I even slide my credit card?? OMG what did the prophet say I don't know! I'm just not doing it.
How to cook (don't blame my mother on that)
Like wait, I legit don't know how to cook anything.
And on that note, I don't know how to sew either.
THIS IS WHY HALF OF US IN THIS WORLD ARE IDIOTS.
I KNOW it's not just me.
However, I am going to give myself a pat on the back because I managed to graduate from college with no debt.
So boom I win there.
bahahahahahaha. So yeah, what I'm really trying to say is I'm excited for the future and buying a house and raising a child.. cause ya know, I also was super prepared for that.
didn't proofread, sorry not sorry.
didn't proofread, sorry not sorry.
WHAT THE HAIL DO YOU DO CORI???
I get asked this every freakin second from people at home.
My life in LA is WEIRD. Sometimes I'm WAY busy working 12+ hour days and then sometimes I have NOTHING to do for 72 hours straight. :|
I don't know how to explain "what I do" for work, because,
I do a lot of stuff for people that are considered important… A lot of stuff is the dirty work, ordering coffee, making copies, having clients sign papers, making sure talent have all they need, and sometimes I even get to walk dogs!
The fun part is I get to interact with some rad celebrties & press, watch free concerts, work on TV sets, and eat free food.
BUT best of part of all is I get to work GNARLY awesome events.
I do all this ish with
LA Live (my main job)
American Idol & Jimmy Kimmel Live! (side gigs)
So I guess I have like 3 jobs?
I didn't expect to be working in the entertainment industry right out of college, because I really wanted to be working within the travel industry. But I've learned that I do like this industry a lot. It's so crazy insane, and every day is different. Every time I go to work, wherever it may be, I have a smile on my face, and I can't beileve I am able to work with so many amazing people and with these incredible companies within this industry.
It's so flipping fun. It feels like a day dream.
But I don't know if I want make my life in LA yet… I am no where near my career goals, and sometimes I still want to pack up my bags and head out to Europe and just travel… for months.
BUT for now I'm just enjoying the experiences that I have, because guess what? Life AIN'T SHORT. It's long.
SO I HAVE TIME.
I do struggle a lot because this industry is tough, who knows if I'll make it out here, all I know is the struggles I have make me stronger and each day is one day closer to figuring out what I truly want in life.
Side Note: It's my blog, if there are spelling errors on this or stuff that makes sense.
Screw it. I don't care.
I may not have "bumped" into my future lover….
But I recently have bumped into two of my favorite Brits.
(Drummer of 1D)
(You may know him as… Chuck Bass)
Can you not?
Hey 2014, WELCOME.
What was it two days ago I posted about being positive?
Hahaha. UMM… since 2014 has been here, I have
Been sick for 5 days
I have to move out of my apartment by tomorrow
And… my tire blew out on the freeway in the middle of the night.
So that's awesome right?
I've been crying for the past week non-stop.
bahaha cause God made me so friggin emotional.
But I'm just going to say something positive in all this.
I was stranded 40 minutes away from home late at night and two strangers pulled over and put my spare on, it took 2 hours. My car was packed with all my stuff because I'm moving so I had to empty my trunk on the freeway and then they had to listen to me bawl to my grandpa and mom. Like HOW ANNOYING IS THAT? But they still helped me and I don't even know their names
(Cause I'm an idiot and never asked).
But K that story doesn't sound all that ahhhh but it was.
PEOPLE ARE AMAZING.
NICE PEOPLE ROCK.
And I think that my tire blew out on the freeway for a reason, it was literally for me to understand that there are some normal people in California. Working in the entertainment industry there are a lot of people who are not so "kind" and that was a huge reminder that there are so many wonderful people in this world.
DON'T EVER FORGET THAT. WE ARE ALL HUMANS AND WE ARE ALL AWESOME.
This year there are a few things you should remember.
1. Don't quit your day dream.
2. Great things don't come from staying in your comfort zone.
3. No great thing is created suddenly.
4.It doesn't always work out. And that's okay.
5. You will be fine. Just wait & see.
A British Week.
I do in life what makes me happy and whatever brings me great adventures.
Soooo this week 1D was in LA. And I was what you might call "crazy" but I'd like to call in fun. I met so many friends with week going place to place that One Direction was at.
I got to meet
Tyler Oakely (1D fangirl)
Sandy Beales (1D Bass)
Josh Devine (1D Drummer)
Good thing I took work off right? BaHA.
And… I saw 5/5 every day. YEAH I might be a little creepy, but it put a smile on my face and gave me memories I will be able to keep forever.

Hunger Games Premiere.
It was a good day at work today.. it pretty much consisted of everyone saying "May the odds be ever in your favor" and everyone acting like that joke is STILL funny.
Pick On This.
Remember back at the Feburary when I was working on my anti-bullying campaign for my senior project?? Well last night, my group won one of the top PR awards in Utah.
We won Best of show, beating out professional PR companies throughout the state.
Here we are…
the smartest PR kids in Utah.
This upcoming Saturday I get to work with the band R5. So, like always, before working with the guests I study up on them… And tonight I found this video.
AND I'M OBSESSED.
I always fall in love with the little corny stuff.
But seriously, watch this video.
How can this not make you happy?
Okay so this week was rad. If you know my mom's side of the family at all you know that they all grew up in the restaurant business. And on Tuesday, I went to where it all started.
The Orginal Bob's Big Boy in Burbank, California. This is where my grandparents met. My grandma was a car hop and my grandpa worked the drive thru.
This was THE PLACE in the 50's. My grandma always tells stories of how she used to serve Walt Disney all the time and how cool she thought she was.
My grandparents met working together and totally fell in love. My grandpa later became the CEO of the west coast yeeears later and all of their kids worked as waitresses and waiters growing up.
HOW FREAKING CUTE IS THAT?
Okay, I say this all the time but I just can't get over HOW lucky I got with my friends. I have THEE best friends in the entire world. Today when I got home from work there was a package from a friend I've had since elementary.
Here we are back in... 2006? Just enjoying life obviously.
I have had some of the funniest times with Karlee, from back in 4th grade when we spent the weekend in Logan, buying swimsuits at the D.I, taking Spanish together, trying to make a video reinacting Finding Nemo in espanol, to almost getting hit by a car riding our scooters to Cosmo's video in Kaysville.
And that's just Jr. High
THIS GIRL IS AMAZING.
Karlee has been through some of the hardest trials in life a woman could imagine, and I'm not talking about when she got hit in the face with a softball and had to have jaw surgery. She's been through WAY too much for a girl that is 22. I have had some of the deepest conversations with her and not once has she felt bad for herself and not once have I heard her think negatively about life. She is so inspiring on how positive she looks at everything. She has such a wonderful relationship with the Lord and SO much faith. Karlee makes my testimony stronger.
I just wanted to write this post to let everyone know how grateful I am to have Karlee as a friend and not just Karlee but the whole Phelps family. They are insanely amazing.
Becky, Kristy, & Angie.
I LOVE YOU GUYS.
DEBRA & JULIA for life.
