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.

day 444444444

     today for the 30 day blogging challenge i am supposed to put my ipod on shuffle and then write down the first 10 songs that come up. well you see i find that a little lacking, so i have decided that i'll also include the music video of the songs so you guys can enjoy them too! enjoy!!! =]

song one: Inside Out by Eve 6
shout out to katie! and all those summer nights laying out on her trampoline! =]

song two: Someday by The Strokes
shout out to alicia ehrmann!

song three: Float On by Modest Mouse
i do enjoy me some modest mouse =]

song four: Irreplaceable by Beyonce
nuthin like reppin a little beyonceeeeee hahaha wow didn't even know that i had this song anymore

song five: Bambi by Tokyo Police Club
i have got to say, i love TPC. this is from their newer cd champ aka the one that i dont like as much as their older one elephant shell, but i still love them with all my heart =]

song six: Baby One More Time by Chad Michael Murrey
hahahahahahah oh man. way to take it back to 6th grade. gosh i loved this movie. and i loved him! haha

song seven: Bad Romance by Lady Gaga
i guess no music collection would be complete without one song of lady gaga's right?? yeah no, i really have no justification for having this song other than i like it. so yeah go on and judge. buuuuut lucky for you, i put the On The Rocks version of the song on here! they are an a cappella group that were on the sing off last season (aka the best season ever)! hope you enjoy it! oh and try to find the guy who looks like one of the bad guys from george of the jungle! hahaha

song eight: Good Life by OneRepublic
honestly, this is one of my fave songs ever! i love it so much. oh and it played in the beginning of one of my fave tv shows ever, rookie blue aka a cop show. yes i watch a cop show. and i love it with all my heart! haha but anyways everytime this song comes on and im driving around in my car, i like to pretend im a cop and its awesome! hahaah

song nine: Tessellate by Tokyo Police Club
one of my favorite songs of all time by them! shout out to james! =]

song ten: Fire and Rain by James Taylor
this song always reminds me of remember the titans and my mother. two things that i love very much =] hhaa

     Alrighty, well those are my ten randomly pulled songs from my ipod! do you feel like you know me more intimately?? hahahaha i kinda hope not cuz i feel like if you were going to judge me from a group of songs, a lot of those would not be on the list that i would pick. but oh well. hope you are having a good night or day or whatever you want. =]

dayyyyy threeeeee

     okie dokie! well first off i have to apologize for missing a couple of days... i have been super busy/sick/just lazy the past 2 days and that is unacceptable. but look! i pushed the dates back on the posts and made it look like i never missed a day! yay for magic and cheating! ok well anyways, day numbero drei: your views on drugs and alcohol.
     ok well wow. it's getting into some pretty serious stuff i guess. my views on drugs and alcohol? well obviously(we have a rapist in lincoln park) drugs and alcohol are bad. we've all learned this since we were like what? 2 seconds old?? yeah. while i have never been schwasted or high like a kite before, i do know plenty of people who have and i feel no judgment towards them. if they want to fill their bodies with nastiness and kill their brain cells and be perpetually starving and drink crap that makes them puke their guts out and feel like boo boo the whole next day, thats fine with me. that is a-ok. i would totes never do it though. it kinda sounds like a form of torture.
     however. there are situations when i do and plan on partaking in drugs.  during period parties for example.  ibuprofen is my life during these week long torture fests.  during childbirth is another situation.  I am going to practically have them knock me out with drugs during this little joy of life. and if ever there were a time that i did do actual drugs/alcohol it would be during these to escape the pain/torture. ( hahaha jk jk, but no that would be awesome right? hahaha jk) but i kind of find it funny how both these things kinda have to do with the same thing.... i think its a sign that if these things can drive a person to contemplate turning to drugs then there is something wrong with the system.   i mean seriously who's idea was it to make it so that women would be stuck for life with debilitating pain that has the potential to turn into pushing a practically full grown human being out of their own bodies??? yeah i feel like there is something majorly wrong with that...
     oh and another time when drugs are a must: having your wisdom teeth pulled.  this is hopefully going to happen to me in the near future seeing as my wisdom teeth are currently trying to catapult out of my head. annd really the only thing that is going to make the experience of then slicing open my mouth and cutting my teeth out of my skull is the fact that i am going to tell them to drug me up so much that i will hopefully be straight loopy afterwards. expect videos. =] hahaha i am so excited for that!
     anyways so yeah basically illegal drugs are bad. hugs not drugs. water not beer. stay in school. remember who you are. and peace and blessings, peace and blessings.

Tuesday, October 11, 2011


     alrighty! day two of the totally awesome 30 day blogging challenge! are you guys ready?? cuz i know i am! lets see what's in store for today...:  where do you see yourself  in 10 years?
     ok well, im not gonna lie you guys, i think this is a pretty lameeee question.  for some reason it's taking me back to 5th grade...i think they asked us the same question then....and oh yeah, every year since then. if i had kept track of all the where i see myself in 10 years i have done every single year since then, i would have my whole life neatly mapped out before me... that would be nice. hahaha i think though, back in 5th grade, i'm pretty sure i said like living in utah or something lamee and totally mormon like that so im pretty much on the golden path so far. rad! hahaha
     anyways, 10 years from now. today, October 11, 2011.  so what would that be? Oct. 11, 2021?? well dang, doesn't that sound all futuristic and what not. haha anyways so I will be 29, almost 30 years old...!!!! oh my.... that's quite an age... like 3 full whole decades! im just barely getting used to being around almost 2..... dang... idunno what i'm going to have done by then, though hopefully by then i will own a flying car and one of those microwaves that zap up full meals out of the sky. that'd be cool.  i think i would quite enjoy flying around in my little flyingmoblie. or maybe someone will have discovered how to actually disapperate/apperate by then and i wont even need a flying car! yeah now that would be awesome!
     no but seriously. i see myself in 10 years with my millions, that either i acquired myself with my stunning career, or you know married into with my fabulously wealthy (and bearded) husband. we will live in a mansion in utah (keeping in line with my 5th grade self, thats important) that we built with our raw bear hands, and by then would have adopted a couple of children from the romainian orphanages as well as have had a couple billion children ourselves since by then of course they dont use needles during childbirth and came up with a way that they just kind of teleport the child from inside your body to cradled in your arms.  and our lives will be wonderfully wonderful. and on October 11, 2021 my husband and i will be contacted by movie producers who will want to make a movie of our wonderfully successful lives to show others the type of pure awesomeness that is possible in this life.
     so um yeah. i think that basically sums up what i see happening in my life in 10 years, and im not gonna lie, im pretty dang excited! i am going to have quite the life.  dont worry, maybe if you ask nicely i'll let you be in the movie about my life, so keep your fingers crossed! hahahahaha oh gosh. anyways, i hope your day is going fabulous and much better than mine so far. and i hope that each one you end up with a future as bright and promising and exactly like mine! (unless of course you are a male in which case you will marry a fabulously wealthy, beardless wifey). peace and blessings peace and blessings! =]

30 day blog challenge! here we go! DAY ONE =]

     so ive decided to do a 30 day blog challenge on here. so basically if i succeed i will be blogging about random things on here for at least 30 days straight! aren't you excited!? i know i am! hahah anywayyyys so this is day one:  your current relationship. if single, discuss how single life is.
     i think it would be safe to say based on previous posts on here that i am single (no one has come up proclaiming their desire to be called beefy cake huns yet... surprising i know...).  so yeah how is single life going?? well it's going.... just trudgin along like always. it would be nice to have a beefy cake huns, but obviously my standards for my point system are just too high (major points, aka a necessity, if he has a beard, but i mean this is byu we're talking about... aka no one has a beard sadly...) so ummmm yeah....
     well obviously, this 30 day challenge thing is off to a great start. really some interesting and moving stuff here.... so um yeah tune in tomorrow hopefully if i havent tossed this out the window by then for day 2!!! whooooo! yeah! should be exciting! =] anyways... sorry this was super lamee... i just feel like i've kinda already explained my views on single livin (see beefy cake huns post below) so yeah... hopefully these things will get better...till then peace and blessings, peace and blessings! =]

     ok seriously, have you ever been on pinterest? no? what is pinterest you ask? basically it is heaven in website form for those people who like to pretend that they are crafty, and creative, and witty and home improvey and artsy, when really all they do is sit on pinterest all day pinning awesome things to their awesome boards. hahaaha  annnnd seeing as how i actually AM all those things, its the perfect website for me. haahahah no but seriously i have been addicted to this website since over the summer.  its basically a website where everybody has online bulletin boards that they can "pin" different things that they find over the internet that they like to, and share it with everybody else on the website. aka it is sheer awesomeness! here i'll give you a little preview so you can see for your self just how awesome it is and know that your life depends on you getting a pinterest.  right now i have 12 boards. I'll give you a preview of with the first 3 things i have pinned in my favorite ones. enjoy! =]
my boards:


harry potter-


cutie pies-

ideas for my future home-


zombie apocalypse-

     so basically as you can see you can pretty much pin about whatever your heart desires! i pretty much love it with all my heart... seriously, go check it out! just dont get addicted like i did...hahahaha =]

ohhh byu...

     so apparently, according to my human development teacher, 30 to 40% of the girls here at byu have an eating disorder, as in anorexia/bulimia... lets think about that for a second.  almost half of the female population here are crazy psychopaths who starve themselves/shove crap down their throats to make themselves puke their guts out on a regular basis... no wonder being here makes me hate myself so much.  hhahaa no but knowing this does kinda makes me feel slightly better about myself, ish... i mean i know that i could/should most def lose weight, but at least im not a crazy chick eating nothing but the occasional cube of cheese every couple of weeks.  obviously it would be impossible to look like half of these girls walking around on campus because i seem to be unable to get rid of my love of food, no matter how hard i try... oh well, if anything, this has taught me that the goal should be to be healthy and not a super skinny stick figure.... oh! and this probably also has to do with the fact that every single person here in provo runs every second of the day, which honestly makes me exhausted just thinking about it... hahaha anyways, hope your life is going well and that you aren't surrounded by starving girls 24/7! =] peace and blessings, peace and blessings.

is a gentleman with a brostache invited to this party??

     new school year means a new stache/beard count. and let me just say i have some good feelings about this year. i have a feeling that this will be the year of the beard card. hahaha  anyways, apparently, there was/is this reenactment of Jesus's time going on or something like that so they needed volunteers for guys to grow beards to be jewish in it, aka the number of beards on campus, dramatically increased.  annnnnd as of today the beards are winning! =D yayayay hahah the count stands at beards: 11 staches: 8. which is pretty crazy considering for most of last year the staches were in the lead.  but just so the staches dont get down on their luck i've decided to through in a little stache humor to boost their spirits, because honestly when it comes to humor staches trump beards every time. hahah enjoy!

annnnnnnd my all time faveeee

currently accepting applications for a beefy cake huns...

      aka a boyfriend.  i've been here for over a month and i think it's about time to have a boyfriend.  i dont think thats too much to ask for, do you?? now i realize that some may be deterred by the name beefy cake huns, but what can i say i love it. hahaha jessica doesn't want to believe that i would actually call my boyfriend that, but however, it is true/totes gonna happen. kinda like how im gonna have my children call my mom and dad grandmamma and grandpapa. hahaha my mother sitll hasn't accepted that one, but she will when she sees how adorable it is hahah =]
     but yeah currently accepting applications.  so if you want to be my boyfriend just walk on up to me and be all like "hey lets be boyfriend and girlfriend" or "hey im the beefy cake huns you're lookin for". yeah if you want double the chance of being accepted somehow incorporate beefy cake huns into your delivery. you cant go wrong with that. hahaha
     oh and you are all probably wondering where all this "beefy cake huns" came from.  well, it came from my good friend olan rogers... now if you really want to be accepted just look/act like olan, or you know just be him for on the spot acceptance. hahah anyways yeah i was watching this video of his the other day and i just died and decided right then and there that i would forever call my boyfriend (whenever he shows up...) beefy cake huns hahahaha hope you enjoy it/make it through to the beefy cake huns part, seeing as he can be a little overwhelming... hahahah peace and blessing, peace and blessings. oh! and dont forget to turn in those applications! hahaaha

     in case you didnt already know, I FINALLY GOT INTO POTTERMORE!! seriously. it only took like 5 billion years.oh and i got my welcome email on a sunday right be i had to leave for church, so i got my email and then had to wait 3 hours before i could get onto pottermore. it was horrible! hahaa but i finally made it on!  The website it pretty awesome, but really the two main things that i've been waiting my whole life for is getting my wand and getting sorted into a house.
     it took me like 5 seconds to get through pottermore to olivander's shop i was so excited to get my wand! Annnnnd here it is!! in all it's glory!!

     hahaha sorry its such a crappy picture, but there it is! 10 3/4 in, unicorn core and yew wood!  So basically a unicorn hair core means that the wand is very loyal to its original owner and its the hardest type of wand to turn to the dark side.  oh and it's the core that ron's wand has! what what!! =] hahaha  as for the wood, yew is pretty rare and super good at curses.  they also tend to be the wands most drawn to the dark arts (basically, my wand is a juicy contradiction hahaha) oh and did i mention that voldemort's wand was made out of yew?? how BA is that??? hahaha needless to say i am pretty darn happy with my wand =]
     so yeah i got my wand and was pretty happy about that and then promptly moved on to bigger and better things and before i knew it i was about to start the sorting ceremony...  let me try to explain something... the first time i read harry potter i was 8 years old.  i got a paperback of the sorcerer's stone as a gift for my baptism.  i am almost 20 now.  i have been waiting to be sorted into a house for 11, almost 12 years.  that is more than half my life.  i cannot explain to you how excited it was for this! but im not gonna lie i was also extremely nervous... what house was i gonna be in??? i knew which house i was hoping that i would be in, ravenclaw of course.  now im not trying to be all like "of course i should be in ravenclaw! i'm soooooo smart!!"  yeah it's not like that, ravenclaw was just the best fit.  i also knew for sure which house i didnt want to be in, gryffindor. seriously, sitting there answering questions, being sorted, i couldn't repeat "not gryffindor" enough times in my head.  why you ask?? why wouldn't i want to be in harry potter's house?? the answer is simple, because it's harry potter's house.  idunno, i just felt like everyone wanted to be in gryffindor cuz it was the golden trio's house and blah blah blah blah. ughh. hhaha also it didn't really fit, i dont like to be the center of attention.  i would've been fine being in hufflepuff or slytherin, i like those two, except hufflepuff is where all the losers go...(hahahah jk jk) but yeah pretty much i was a mess answering the questions that came straight from Jo herself.  but in the end i got.....
     seriously, i could not be more happy! i always knew i was a ravenclaw and finally it is official!! hahaah  it's probably one of the greatest things ever! pretty much my life is complete =] pretty much me and loony luna are bff forever and ever hahaha but yeah no if you guys haven't checked out pottermore, it is most def worth it. you get to brew potions and duel people and earn house points, its just great. haah  i think it opens up to the public late october, so seriously, go check it out as soon as you can =] and make sure you get voted into ravenclaw so you can hang out with me and luna! hahaah =]

Movie Monday FOUR!!

     HAPPY MONDAY!!  how was your weekend?? good i hope? annnd i hope that your monday is going just as well.  i have a few minutes before i have to leave for class so i thought that i'd squeeze in a movie monday real fast and show you guys some new vids that are recently my favorites. i know it feels like i just did a movie monday like 4ish posts ago, but that was like a thousand years ago and i really have some new good videos to share with you guys!! i hope you find them as good and uplifting and just plain funny as i do! =]

Moments that Matter Most- i have been obsessed with this video ever since my biology teacher showed it to us a few weeks ago as a spiritual thought before class.  seriously i really love it a lot! annnd it goes perfectly with President Uchtdorf's talk this past saturday during the Relief Society General Conference!

Speak Like Kristen Stewart- madison showed me this next video, and let me tell you it is hilarious! and so true! that girl playing kristen stewart deserves an oscar! she is perfect! hahahaha Thanks K Stew!! =]

Pizza is Murder- this video features julian smith, who used to be the love of my life until he stopped making funny videos and started making lame ones, but thankfully this video wasn't made by him so it's funny! haha seriously i wish he would make his new videos as funny as his old ones again!

How Harry Potter Should Have Ended- i love these things! you should most def check out the site and have some good laughs!

Snape Realizes the Candles are Floating-  another harry potter one, i've been a little obsessed lately which i guess is acceptable since i finally got my pottermore email yesterday (that blog post will be coming soon). but i have been obsessed with this video in particular forever. seriously ask jessica, i watch it a couple times a day. it's just so darn funny! hahaha

Love Sparks- this is a video done by probably my favorite youtube person/just person in general ever. Olan Rogers.  seriously i love him.  i know i say that a lot about guys on youtube, but my love for him surpasses all of them (including the love i had for julian smith, which is saying something). we may or may not have a small shine of pictures of him on out wall, jess and i love him so much... hahhaha anyways  this is definitely not the first time one of his vids have been on here.  go check out some of his other ones on youtube, his dare on dare videos are probably my favorite.  but this one is different, not funny, but just awesome and i love it! haha

Night Vision Binoculars- out last video is actually a song.  a song that has quickly become the theme song of mine and jessica's lives. we may or may not play it every single day despite the complete creepiness of it.  and let me tell you, it is creepy.  hahaha i heard it on pandora the other day and just had to show jessica and we both fell in love with it and now proudly own it.  dont judge. haters gon hate.

sign language

     so there's this new show on tv, or well i guess it's not on tv right now, it's in that weird mid season break thing, but anyways.... there's this new show called switched at birth and i am pretty much obsessed with it! pretty much its about these two girls who are switched as babies in the hospital and given to wrong families and grow up not knowing it but then everyone finds out when they are like 16.  BUTTT the cool part of the show is the fact that one of the girls is deaf so there is like buttloads of sign language in the show! which is so totally awesome!!  it's pretty much renewed my love for sign language!
      i was going to take a sign language class with jessica this semester but it didn't fit into our schedules, but you can count on it happening winter semester! annnnd madison will hopefully take it with us too! so pretty much we're going to be able to talk to each other without anyone else knowing what we are saying, which will pretty much be the best thing that has ever happened to at least me and jessica! haha anyways but yeah you should totally check out Switched at Birth if you're into pointless drama and super cool sign language usage, it's pretty much the best thing ever! hahaha peace and blessings, peace and blessings. =]

hey there again...

     so um yeah...sorry it's been so long since i've blogged.  oh well it happens right?? but anyways so i was all determined to blog today and all excited and sat down at my computer and cant really come up with anything...  I have a whole lists of posts that i've been meaning to blog about but apparently im just not feeling any of them at the moment.....um lets seeeee. ok i'll write about the creamery, which isnt on the list but whatevs... sorry for being so lamee.
     so anyways i am currently employed at the BYU Creamery on 9th East as a restaurant team member.  if you remember from last winter semester i was the grill closer/cleaning slave there working 6 hours a week, so you would think that this would be a step up right?? yes and no sadly.

1. i actually talk to people and have friends at work which is pretty fun. as much as i like to be antisocial, it gets lonely sometimes and it's nice to have friends right?? hahaha oh and it's nice to actually meet new people i can add on facebook it boost my friend count, cuz thats all that really matters right?? =]
2. i now work 12 hours a week, instead of 6.  so yeah that pretty cool. more hours, more monies. thats always enjoyable.
3. i dont have to slave away cleaning the grill anymore. instead i get to cook on the grill and scoop ice cream, which is my favorite thing to do, which is kinda weird cuz you actually have to talk to the customers, i guess i'm slowly becoming less antisocial. hahah no but really it's just nice not to come home every night smelling like grease and killed animals and cleaning chemicals....
4. there are so many hotttaayyyys that come into the creamery for ice cream! and i'm not gonna lie there are a few cuties who work there too, so pretty much its just win win all around. haha =]
5. i got a 10 cent raise from last semester, i now make 7.35 an hour! i know super great right?? ha

1. i only work 12 hours a week.  i know that's a bump up from the 6 hours last winter semester but, compared to the 50/60 hours a week i was working over the summer, it's just a little bit to get used to... dont get me wrong i love not working that much, it's just i loved the money i was getting more... haha
2. i still have to wear that nasty hat.  i have to wear like a baseball cap as part of my uniform, it's that or an old lunch lady hairnet.  last year it wasnt that bad i would just pull my hair up in a ponytail and go, but this year my hair is too short for that... so now pretty much i have to make sure i come to work with a thousand bobby pins so i can some how get my hair up in a semi decent looking updo... haha
3. instead of coming home smelling like grease, i come home covered in ice cream.  well at least on the days that i work ice cream, which i try to make that like every time. but yeah pretty much i always end up covered up to my elbows in ice cream, which isnt that big of a deal, but it's kinda sticky... hahaha
4. i have to walk to work. last semester i worked at 9, left at 8:59 and got there on time.  now i have to leave like a thousand hours early to get there five minutes early so i have time to put my hair up... seriously i have been walking everywhere this year, which is good right?? just exhausting....
5. i only got a 10 cent raise, which means i am only making 7.35 an hour, working 12 hours a week... you do the math... maybe for everyone else out here that's enough, with all their scholarships and richness, but seriously that sucks when it comes to me.  but hey at least i have a job right? could be worse.
6. oh and i might have gotten carpel tunnel from all the scooping of the ice cream, but no biggie...

     so yeah that's pretty much my job.  some parts of it suck, but honestly i kinda really like working there. it's a pretty fun job with lots of fun people.  ok well, i think thats enough blogging for today... hopefully i'll keep up with it this time.... peace and blessings, peace and blessings.

Thursday, August 18, 2011


     practically only one day till i leave for utah?! when did this happen?? i havent even started packing/cleaning/preparing emotionally by frolicking around my room in a joyous 'im going back' dance....

matthew lewis aka neville longbottom aka the now complete and total BABE

     neville longbottom. we all know who he is. we've all seen the movies and read the books (at least we all should have, harry potter is kinda an essential to a happy life, so i hope you all have at least seen the movies, i wouldnt want you going through life all sad and what not) neville is what you would call a lameo nerd who turns into a total BAMF. (dont ask me what that means, kinda supainaprop but thats really the only way to describe him) seriously his character's progression through out the books is sheer awesomeness. i can easily say he is one of my fave characters in the whole story. however, the only thing that could rival the character of neville longbottoms awe inspiring transformation from zero to hero would be the actor who plays him, and HIS transformation.
     have you seen matthew lewis lately?! if you haven't you are in for a real treat. and i mean it, just a real all out treat. i dont even really know how to put it into words, i think it's probably best to just show you. here we go. prepare to have your mind blown (in the best of ways of course):

neville longbottom in the first movie, when he was the epitome of nerdness and clumsyness:

 a little bit more grown up, but seriously, those teeth slay me, and lets add total awkwardness to that above list:

here's another one, better most deff better, but still just neville longbottom:

annnd then next thing you know BAM! and you're left thinking "kjwdifnrufnbrkiejnfjk! what the WHAT?!?!":
     i mean seriously. i will be the first one to stand up and say that i totally and completely did not see that one coming. i mean honestly who did?? even with the knowledge from the books that neville totally turns all BA...  i feel like this was pretty much everyone's reaction to him turning into a total hottayyy:

     but honestly, how could you not love that?! i mean look he's even got that nice scruffy scruff goin on, and you guys know how much i love the scruffy scruff, and just his hair in general i feel is to die for, and then that thing he does with his eyebrow. yeah, that get all da ladies swoonin. observe closer:

      yeah, you know you totes just swooned. hahaha swooned, what a funny word. anyways, i just wanted to make sure that you all knew of the awesomeness that is matt lewis and his successful journey through puberty. peace and blessings, peace and blessings =]

day 9

     i know that i have posted this before, but i feel as though if someone asked me why i miss byu so much all i would have to do is show them this video.  me and jessica actually walked by some of the filming for this, the part where the girl in the black robes is cursing people just randomly on campus.  it was pretty awkward to walk by, she was yelling crucio all over the place, but i do thoroughly love this video, and i love byu, so its the perfect combination. =]

called to serve...

     so i'm a little bit behind on this but better late than never right?  just to remind everybody, when one of my friends leave for their mission i have decided that i am going to blog about them here. =]  annnd the next lucky guy is Carter Johnson!

     elder johnson actually left for his mission a couple of weeks ago and he is serving in the Novosibirsk, Russia mission! he is going to spend 12 weeks at the MTC, missionary training center, preparing for his mission, but mostly learning to speak russian.  which is all super exciting!!
     i met carter that same first sunday as daniel when his and daniel's roommate brayden asked our apartment over to have dinner.  they made hamburger helper. haha it was fun/kinda awkward as you can probably imagine. haah but the very first thing that i can remember carter saying is that he was going to be on his mission when the 2nd part of the last harry potter movie came out. that broke my heart, and i knew right then and there we would be the best of buds.
     i was wrong. hahah for the most part of 1st semester carter didnt talk to anyone from our apartment at all, even though we talked to pretty much everybody else in his apartment all the time. we totally thought he was a jerk who thought he was too cool for us. hahah we dubbed his song as "cooler than me" you know that one song by that one guy. hahah but no then we all ended up getting to know him pretty well, and all became pretty good friends with him and came to love carter johnson, who it turned out is a pretty chill, funny, super good looking guy. hahaah (you know the aviator sunglasses? those are now officially carter shades, cuz no one looks as good in them as he does hahah)  i am so excited for him to be on his mission and i know that he is going to an awesome missionary! =]

day 8 part 2

     i didnt realize that i had so many wonderfully amazing hp pics to share with you guys, so i decided to add a part two! enjoy!

i love this. because its so true. i've always felt like my generation missed out cuz we didnt have anyone like the beatles, or elvis, or michael jackson. but honestly, who needs all those guys?? not me. ive got harry potter. =]

i pretty much know what every single one of these spells do...nerd much??

im not gonna lie, this kinda broke my heart.

these pictures would be perfect if nasty daniel radcliff could be erased from them. buttt, look how supafinee rupert is lookin in them  =]

i am some how going to get my hands on these...

its rare that silly online pics make me lol, but this one had me goin for some reason. hahaha

dumbledores army.

four words that instantly come to mind??
oliver wood, ronald weasley.
both of whom are most definitely keepers =]

the anthem to our lives.

i will someday be the proud owner of this vehicle.

pretty much says it all.

like the quote above says, jo pretty much gave me my childhood, to which i am eternally grateful.

day 8: im becoming a little obsessed...

     i am most deff becoming just slightly even more super obsessed with harry potter since starting this countdown. which is perfectly fine with me =] hahah  but yeah this whole countdown thing has been lots of fun but i will most deff will not miss it when this is all over. its been fun and all, but is kinda a little stressful figuring out what to do everyday, butttt i am especially looking forward to today =] hahah i just spent like 300 years searching the world wide web for super cool harry potter pics and stuff, and let me tell you my friends, i found some gems. some really really good ones =] and we're off! :

i kinda really love this picture, but seriously some of ronalds pics are kinda a little scary...im super glad he grew into the hottayyy we always knew that he was destined to be  =]

this is the birthday cake that i want for my 20th birthday. jessica and my other future roommates, make it happen.

i need to find this place stat.

pure perfection.

is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen?

i totally agree with this. i remember when i saw the fourth movie for the first time i was totally all like 'WHY THE HAY IS DUMBLEDORE ACTING LIKE NOT DUMBLEDORE aka AN IDIOT?!?'

i totes wouldve been hangin with loony luna in ravenclaw if my parents hadn't stolen all my hogwarts acceptance letters...

this is kinda the best idea ever. my children will be receiving this on their 11th birthdays.

ride in style.

oh fred and george, how i love you.

i couldnt resist.

dumbledore always has the best quotes

no collection of awesome harry potter pics is complete without a picture of the very best character ever. (aka the hottest actor of the films =] )

two of my favorite things woven together into beautiful perfection.
