     I so have recently come to the conclusion that some time in the future I am going to attempt to become a book reviewer for a young adult book publishing company, so that basically I will be sent free books and paid to read them and respond with what I think about them.  And honestly I think that sounds like heaven.  Getting paid to read free books ( that I would get to keep) sounds like the best job in the world.  The only problem is that  first I have to practice/get good at reviewing books. Which, I guess, honestly I don't think should be very hard.  A book review blog is kinda in the works as we speak/will be in the works as soon as I have more time/in 19 days when I am home from school forever and have all the time in the world to read as many books as I want. 
     But yeah I think a book review blog would be pretty awesome/a great way to practice writing publisher worthy reviews.  When I get that up and running I will most def link it up to here, and expect to see all my friends following that one too...or I guess all my friends who like to read. =]

Hey There

     Well first off:

     How awesome is that?? (oh and p.s. I don't usually take lamee pictures of myself on regular basis, I'm not one of THOSE girls, but since this is a shirt I thought it would be appropriate)  My newest Olan Rogers shirt came in the other day and let me tell you, it is superb.  I am loving it.  "It's a Monday" is probably one of my favorite lines from any of his videos (if you haven't seen his Ghost in the Stall video, it's below), and it's purple.  How can you beat that?? You can't.  So yeah I'm pretty dang excited about my shirt/ plan to wear it every Monday for the rest of my life. =]
     Oh! And guess what else came too?! My TARDIS!/sadly not a real TARDIS, but close enough right??

     Hahaha!  Basically I love it with all my life! Definitely one of the greatest purchases ever.  And the best part?? I got it for only $3.75 on Etsy! Bomb.  And I guess I might be able to forgive you if you don't know what a TARDIS is, but only if you promise to go watch Doctor Who right now, and somehow make it through the first 8 episodes of the first series (they suck so much) and get to the rest of the show that is just the best ever! =] haha yeah... I may be a little obsessed... but that's okay right??
     Well, that's basically all the exciting stuff that has happened to me... oh wait! Guess who is Employee of the Month at the Creamery??? This girl! hahaha! I know it's just the Creamery and whatever, but I am actually really excited about it! I have never been Employee of the Month at any of my other jobs, Handyman didn't have anything like that, and I have never been Counselor of the Week at camp before, so it's pretty exciting! And super nice, my last month at the Creamery I get to be it. =]
     I hope everything is going awesome with you! Only 19 more days until I am home and starting the arduous task of looking for a job/saving up money for the mishh! But for now I will leave you with a little Mini Movie Monday Madness! Enjoy!

Ghost in the Stall by Olan Rogers
(here it is)

Lego House by Ed Sheeran
(yes that is Rupert Grint, no he is not singing he is just the actor in the music video, and yes this video makes me love him even more than I thought possible)

"Hero" by Enrique Iglesias in American Sign Language by Sean Berdy
(I love asl, it is so awesome!)

Hitler Finds Out He was Not Accepted into Hogwarts
(umm..some language...please forgive me for that...it's just so funny)

OK Go- Needing/Getting
(They always have the best videos ever. I am obsessed with this one)

The Doctor's Dance
(just a little snippet of why I love Doctor Who so much. I have decided this will be the dance at my wedding)

      Well I hope you enjoyed those! It has been too long since I have shared my favorite videos with you! Have a great rest of your Monday! =]

30 Random Facts About Me!

     Sounds awesome, right?? =]  Cuz I know you guys are just DYING to know these little tidbits about my life. hahaa Actually I am just incredibly bored at the moment, and came across a 30 day blogging challenge online and just chose the most interesting day to do.  And what could be more interesting than me??? kidding, kidding...but no really, brace yourself for the coming onslaught of the awesomeness that is my life in the form of 30 random (hopefully. if you already know all these things about me kudos to you/you are a creep) facts about me. =]

1. I have the upper body strength of a small new born child.
  Sad, but true.  Basically, I suck at anything that involves opening things, arm wrestling, or carrying loads heavier than 1 pound.
2. I am not good at word games.
   I'm not gonna lie, this actually surprises me.  I feel like I always thought that reading a lot would make me really good with words, but apparently.  Pretty much anybody could beat me at words with friends, but for some reason despite sucking royally at it, I still love playing them.  I guess I just can't accept that I'm horrible at them.
3. I have successfully finished two tubes of chap stick in the past 6 months.
   Call me impossible, but I have.  It has always been one of my life dreams to finish a tube of chap stick without losing it first or accidentally washing it with my laundry, or leaving it in the car, melting it.  And now look at me, not only have I finished one, but TWO! Like a boss.
4. I hate milk.
   I hate it with a fiery burning passion.  I think I've only had about 3 glasses of milk since 4th grade.  And that's only because I forced myself into drinking them cuz I got scared I was going to have osteoporosis at the age of 20 (probably will still happen).  I occasionally drink chocolate milk, but lately that has been tasting too much like regular milk, so I can't even drink that... I'm thinking about looking into soy milk or almond milk actually, just so people will stop looking at me like I'm a psychopath when I eat my cereal dry... haha
5. I've been having a strange desire lately to have my head shoved into a birthday cake...
   Don't ask me why... it just seems like one of those things that should happen to everybody at least once...  I mean it seems like it would be fun right?? Or is that just me...?
6. I have an irrational fear of drive by shootings.
   I don't really know why I'm scared of this, it's not like I grew up in the ghetto or anything (despite what some may believe, me being half black and all).  Just ever since I was a wee child whenever I've been outside at night and a car drives by there's always this fear in the back of my head that maybe they'll just start shooting... hahah yeah... I'm a little crazy I guess... ha  
7. I love basketball!
    It is hands down my favorite sport ever.  Nothing else even comes close.  I love playing basketball, watching basketball, I love everything basketball. I don't know, maybe it's just the black person inside of me coming out (though I definitely didn't get my love from my dad...he hates basketball... yes, that's right, he's not a real black person... haha)  The sad thing is that I don't get to play it very much anymore.  I used to play on a team as a child but then quit that after they started playing games on Sundays.  And then I only played during church ball season.  Oh goodness, I cannot even tell you how much I loved church ball...hahaha Spending all Saturday up at church just watching game after game all day, the best thing ever.  But now that I am an old person I don't get to play church ball anymore, so basically I don't play very often anymore... which sucks buttmonkeys.
8. I plan on naming my child after my favorite book characters.
   Yup, I'm one of those people.  I would tell you the names I have planned but then you would get jealous and steal them.  But lets just say that there might be real life Fred/George twins in the future... =]
9. I want to write novels when I grow up.
   That's the plan anyways.  Marry somebody super rich so I can lounge around all day writing and making millions off my bestseller books... haha jk. I'm gonna be holed up in some crappy apartment living off of ramen with my 50 dogs, trying desperately to convince people to read any of my books... sounds good to me hha
10. I really really like guys who wear nice shoes.
    Annnnd I guess it doesn't hurt when they have on equally as nice clothing as well.  Picture Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love, or Matt Bomer in White Collar.  Perfection.  But then again who doesn't like that?? Crazy people.  That's who.  No but seriously.  I may or may not just scope out guys shoes all the time while I'm walking across campus... is that weird?? Oh well... hah
11. I've never broken a bone before.
    Yeah... I was a very careful child/my dad would never let us do anything super risky, therefore, none of us have actually broken anything... I have had stitches though... Right on my chin.  I don't remember how old I was... 7 maybe 8... I had just gotten out of the shower and somehow ended up slipping and cracking my chin on the floor... I was obviously a very bright child seeing as how it didn't occur to me to use my hands to break my minor slip and not my chin... but you know whatevs...
12. I actually really like Spiderman 3.
    I don't care what anyone else says, I love it/am a proud owner.  It is definitely my favorite of the two.  Yes I know that it is terribly corny and just flat out bad, but I feel like there's a point when a movie is just so bad, it's wonderfully good.  Spiderman 3 captures that perfectly.  Oh and James Franco might have a little something to do with that.
13. I don't like talking to people I don't know...
     I don't know maybe I just took the 'don't talk to strangers' rule a little bit too much to heart as a child, but I kinda actually really hate meeting new people.  It's just awkward... at least for me.. I mean once we get past like the first initial few months of knowing each other, then we can be the best of friends, but meeting people for the first time?? It's the worst. hahaa Actually, I have been getting a lot better at making friends and talking to people and all the stuff that normal people do all the time without being too awkward about it... hahaa
14. I have a secret desire to be a stunt driver.
     It would pretty much be the best job ever.  I always loved the car commercials were they had the car doing all these crazy turns and stunts and everything, and then underneath it would be all like professional driver blah blah blah... How awesome would that be?? What could be better than getting to drive like a psychopath for a living??  When you meet people and they ask you what you do for a living you could be all like "I'm a professional driver aka I get to drive all types of cars 1000000000x faster than you could ever dream of."  Seriously, how do you become a stunt driver?? I think I have just realized my calling.
15. I shaved my legs for the first time since the beginning of November the other day.
    And it was the best decision I have ever made in my life.  Haters gonna Hate. Annnnd that's all I have to say about that...
16. I am a closet video/computer game geek.
    I know, I know, you would never be able to tell from just looking at me right?? hahah jk. The whole world probably knows and I just like to pretend that I'm fooling everybody.  Seriously though, LOVE them!  I'm not gonna lie I could easily play a video game all day/night if given the opportunity/have done just that an obscene number of times...  My favorite games include the Civilization games (for the computer), Assassin's Creed, Zelda, COD/Nazi Zombies, Super Smash Bros, Sonic Adventure Battle 2, a thousand more and soon to be Skyrim.  I have yet to play that one, but I know it's going to be a fave.
17. The thought of serving a mission kinda scares the crap out of me.
     Don't get me wrong I am super excited about it and it is definitely still the plan, I'm just scared to death about it.  It kinda ties back to the whole 'not liking to meet new people/talking to them thing'... which is basically the whole point of a mission... But you know hopefully I'll get over that pretty quickly... or at least that's the plan...
18. I get more emotional about over my fave tv shows/movies/books than real life.
     Seriously, I really really cried about something that actually happens in my life, probably only every couple of years really, but as soon as I get emotionally attached to a tv show or movie or book and something even remotely sad happens I turn into a full on blubber baby.  I cried at the end of Spiderman 3...both times I saw it in theaters.  I am a mess during books, like the Hunger Games/Harry Potter.  I even teared up while watching Rookie Blue aka a cop show.  Who cries during a cop show?? Apparently I do.  But did I cry when I had to leave all my friends and family a move halfway across the country to come out to college?? Nope.  And yet I cry during things like Rookie Blue.  Seriously. I am weird. haha
19. I really love my summer job at camp working with all the children.
    It is one of my favorite things ever, and is something I look forward to all year round.  I work at a day camp for the City of Florissant (where I am from) for 6 weeks during the summer.  It's basically just a place for 6 to 12 year olds to go during the summer while there parents are at work so they won't get into any trouble/have someone to look at them.  Basically I get paid to play with kids all summer.  This coming summer will be my 3rd year there.  My group my first year were the 8 year old boys and last year I had the 7 year old boys.  I'm hoping to get the 6 year old boys this summer. They are just so precious. hahah  Oh and this year Harrison will be working there too and Abby will be volunteering! It's going to be so much fun!!
20. When I was about 5 years old I sandpapered my nose.
    I don't really know what was going on in my head when it happened, all I know is that I saw my dad sandpapering all this wood and stuff and it looked like fun, so I grabbed a piece and sandpapered the first thing I could think of...which was my nose apparently... I have a very distinct memory of bring the sandpaper to my face, but after that I have no idea what happened. I'm pretty sure I blocked it all out.  I do know that I had a huge scab running the length of my nose forever though...hahaha
21. The Lord of the Rings movies are my favorite movies ever in the history of the world.
     I could talk about those movies all day long.  They are just so perfect, so beautiful, just everything about them is wonderful! The sets, the cast, the music! Just perfect.
22. Olan Rogers is my soul mate.
     I know I have said this about other people in the past but I really mean it this time.  He is perfect in every way and I am convinced that if we were to just meet once, even if it were for just a second, we would both fall madly in love and be married that second. If you don't know who he is you have not lived/you should go look him up this instant!
23. I would be perfectly content working in a bookstore for the rest of my life.
     I know that's not very ambitious, I mean it's no stunt driving career, but it's true.  I love books and to be able to work with them all the time, everyday would be the best thing ever.  Ideally, I will somehow manage to get a job at Barnes and Noble this summer and work there until I leave on my mission...which is pretty much impossible, but a girl can dream right??
24. I kinda really really like zombies.
     I really like zombie stories a lot...but I hate hate hate violence... kind of a conflict of interests... hahah but despite that I may or may not have a plan for when the zombie apocalypse happens and it may or may not involve taking over a Costco...
25. Dr. Who is the cleverest show I have ever seen.
    It's pretty much without a doubt my favorite show, hands down.  I have been super obsessed with it this semester.  At first I wasn't really into it, I watched the first episode over Christmas Break and didn't like it very much, but then decided to give it another try and ended up watching all 6 seasons in a month...  I haven't watched any of the older ones... which I know probably makes me not a true fan, but whatevs the new ones are good enough for me.  You should definitely check it out sometime.  It really is the best.
26. If I could have any super power it would be the ability to manipulate time.
     I think that would just be the coolest thing ever!  Not necessarily time travel (I'm waiting for the Doctor to show up for that), but like stopping time and stuff like that.  Like that movie Clockstoppers.  I always thought that was so awesome!  You would be able to get so much done if you could stop time whenever you wanted.  I think that super power would be a thousand times better than like flying or something lame like that... haha
27. I would be happy living by myself with a bunch of dogs.
     Just call me the dog lady.  I could never be a cat lady, but a dog lady.  That would be divine.  Maybe after I make all my millions writing books I'll just adopt a thousand dogs and live in a cottage by the sea that I can just sit around a read books all day.  That doesn't sound too bad.
28.  My dream car is a purple mustang.
     I've wanted a mustang for as long as I can remember.  And not one of those new ones... a 2002 Mustang GT.  I've always loved those so much more than the newer models.  And then like a year or two ago I was driving home from a midnight showing and I saw a PURPLE  2002 Mustang GT.  It was perfect. I didn't even know that that was possible.  It has basically been my dream ever since.  I love purple, I love the mustang gts, why not put them together in perfect harmony.  Seriously.  It's gonna be the best when I get it someday...hahaha
29. The love potion in the 6th Harry Potter book would smell like Barnes and Noble and brown sugar.
     The potion smells different for everybody, the things they find most desirable.  And those are the things it would definitely smell like for me.  I love the smell of books/Barnes and Noble/i guess just really any collection of books would do.  And of course the brown sugar is always my favorite part of baking anything.  It smells straight up like heaven.
30. I am an accomplished maker of pancakes.
    This isn't really true, I just ran out of random facts about myself, but if you know what movie this is from you win!! That's right! Dan in Real Life!  It's a pretty awesome movie. It will most definitely always hold a special place in my heart because it led me to Sondre Lerche.  My favorite music artist ever.  He does all the music for that movie and it is magic. Pure magic.  I guess that probably should have been my last fact: I LOVE SONDRE! hahaha oh well

     Well, I hope you enjoyed this little in depth look into my soul and if you actually read all of that kudos to you, cuz I probably wouldn't have... hahaha anyway... hope you are having an awesome day! =]

Do you ever feel like just doing something crazy?? 
Something just completely new, and strange and exciting?
Like just packing up and driving off and not looking back until you find what you're looking for...
I don't know...maybe I'm being over dramatic or whatever... I guess I've just been feeling kind of...stuck.
I just don't want to end up with a job I hate, or married with kids without having done...something in my life.
Don't get me wrong, I really really want those things (maybe not so much the hating my job one, but you know, having a job, being married, having kids), I want them a lot.
I need to find myself before I do any of that though.
I know, I know, this is all very angsty young adult of me, but it's true.
I don't understand how I am expected to know what I want to do with the rest of my life, when I don't even really know what I really enjoy doing...
I've been spending thousands and thousands of dollars to go to school for essentially nothing, since I don't have a major yet, which, when I think about it, makes absolutely no sense to me.
I mean its been fun, but there hasn't been a point.
I am $11,000 dollars in debt and all I have to show for it is random knowledge about Prometheus and Craftsman style homes.
And now you are probably thinking, "just choose something then", but that I feel like would most definitely lead to the job I hate with all my soul, something I plan on avoiding if possible.
I don't even know what I'm saying anymore... like I said I've just been feeling like I just want to go, get out, drop off the map, meet new people (which if you know anything about me is super scary, cuz I hate meeting new people haha), do whatever. 
I think this is one of the many reasons I have decided to serve a mission.
At the very least it will be new, and challenging, and exciting, not to mention all the spiritual growth that usually comes along with a mish.
I don't know, I hope I haven't bored you too much with my angstiness and ramblings.
Have an AWESOME day! =]

Is it too much to ask for???

     Seriously, all I want is a guy that will make me mixed cds full of awesome music, watch Lord of the Rings with me all day long, and occasionally make out. I don't think that's asking for too much is it?? oh! and let me call him beefy cake huns... =]

year in review

     alright, i realize that i am a horrible person. i accept this. it has been exactly 5 billion years since i've blogged about anything, and i dont think that i could ever apologize enough. and i left you during a 30 day challenge no less! but my one year of blogging mark is coming up, and i cannot miss that! i have already done something i told myself i would never do, completely not blog anything during a month, aka this past novemeber, but i am not going to miss out on blogging about my one year anniversary of blogging awesomeness! now for you hardcore fans out there you might realize that the actual one year anniversary of my 'first post eva...' is on dec. 13th. but seeing as how that is directly in the middle of my crazy 'take 6 finals in 2 days' finals week, i probably will not be posting then.... so we're gonna celebrate early!
     so yeah! it was a year ago exactly (lets pretend, it sounds better) that i decided to start a blog; mostly for my mother so she could creep on my life, and partly cuz i was tired of having all these witty things running through my head all the time with no one to tell. haha so i started my blog not really expecting anything, not even really expecting to really use it but it turned out to be superohmegaawesome, at least in my eyes. =] 
     despite the long droughts of nothingness i actually blogged a lot more than i thought i would (92 posts! almost 100! hahaa) and found that i really enjoyed it, and apparently other people enjoyed it as well.  as you can see over there on the right i have 12 official followers, which i am very proud of/love with all my heart. dont worry, i know there are those of you who creep on me unofficially as well, dont worry i love you too! (but i would love you more if you felt the need to join that list of people over there, which would be awesome...hint hint...hahah) =]  oh and probably my greatest achievement concerning my blog would be that my most popular post has over 300 views! 300! the next most popular has 29...hahah. but im pretty sure the credit for that goes to matt lewis and his sexy self. =]
     but yeah basically that's whats happened to my blog this past year. what about me do you ask?? well lets see, last year i was just a little college freshman who knew nothing about life (julian smith was my favorite youtuber for goodness sake!), and now i am a college sophomore (please no comments jessica) who still knows pretty much nothing about life ( i have however discovered the love of my life in the form of olan rogers, who is about 13928923743892769436372984y32894783092 trillion times funnier than julian).  no but in all seriousness this past year has been pretty awesome.  i made some friends that i will hopefully have for the rest of my life, i grew in my love for children (nothing creepy about this statement. i ma simply referring to the awesome time i had at camp this summer), and my best friend is about to be baptized! basically awesome. thats not to say that there weren't any rough times.  i my soul was pretty much taken hostage by pinterest rendering me basically a vegetable for a good majority of the summer, and sometimes still (good or bad thing?? still cant tell sometimes), all my friends have been sucked into that friend-sucker-upper also known as the MTC, and i still only have vague ideas about what i want to do with my life, major/career wise.  but honestly, who doesn't have these problems??
     but now for the part that i am most excited for.... the futureeeeeeeee.  what does this next year hold in store for me?? well, let me tell you it is pretty much kind of super awesome! (fun fact, it took me like 6 tries to spell that word right for some reason.... sometimes i feel as though college makes me dumber... haha) anyways so the life plan for the next year. are you ready for it?? here it goes:
     this coming winter semester at BYU will be my last for a while, like for 2, 2 1/2ish years.  why do you ask?? well, you see in less than a month i will be 20 years old (!!!!! i know right!!!) which means that i will then only have a year until i am 21....aka a year until i can go on a mission.  which is what i am going to be doing. i am going to go on a mission!!!! for those of you who might not know what a mission for my church is, it's basically spending 2 years, or for girls aka me, 18 months, teaching the gospel.  So basically i will be living away from home, with no personal cell phone, facebook, music that i love with all my soul, talking to strangers about the church all day for 18 months. weird right?? hahah anyways, what does this have to do with me leaving BYU so soon since i have a year until i will be able to go on a mission? well missions are kind of super expensive and i am broke. so i will be living at home for free and working all next summer and fall semester, and maybe even the whole school year next year to save enough money cuz right now i have nothing. haha  but i am so excited! it is going to be weird not being at BYU with everybody and just the thought of a mission kinda scares me to death but i am really excited about my decision to go and can't wait to start working on making it happen.
     so well yeah, thats just a little summary of everything thats happened this past year/ a little sneak peak into my future. im kinda excited for next december to see how this coming year plays out, and how many more followers i have (hint hint: follow me please! haha =])  and hopefully i will do better at posting this year. i do have some good posts in the works though that im excited about (probably the best movie monday you have ever seen =] so get excited! haha). but yeah, hope you are doing awesome, sorry about being the biggest bum that has ever existed in the history of the world, and hope finals week goes well for those of you that have those nasty things! peace and blessings, peace and blessings.
