Happy New Years Eve!

Well, I'm in Washington and I how I missed it so.
Sometimes I wish more than anything I could move back. But I know that Utah's where God wants me for now.
However, I decided that I'm going to apply to BYU-I. And if I get accepted, I'm going to pray really hard about if I should go there. It would be so nice to finally get out of Provo. And Stevie and I would be there together which would be really awesome. But of course, It's a matter of prayer, really.
So we'll see.

Anyway. Home is wonderful. Besides the whole falling out Afton and I have had...which is...different. But I'm alright with it. Stevie, Camille, Turner and Daniel are all here. And they make Washington home to me. I miss them. Camille's going to be moving to Provo to be with Kali and me. It will be sooo much fun.
But anyway.

I don't really have plans tonight. Probably just hang out with the group or something. We'll see.
But I would now like to post a review on the best movie I've seen in years. And possibly the best movie I've seen in my entire life.

The movie is called Juno. And if you haven't seen it, you definitely should. I don't want to give anything away other than the fact that it's about a girl that gets pregnant at age 16. I promise it's not as boring or cliche as it sounds. It was an incredible film and I would recommend anyone to see it. It's a very low budget film, which I am kind of partial too anyway, but even if I wasn't, it was definitely the most well made, realistic movie I have ever seen. And Jordan and Marie will most likely come to appreciate the soundtrack as well because it's very Indie based. I have been listening to it for the last 2 days.

Anyway. Point being, Juno was an incredible movie and I would advise absolutely anyone and everyone to watch it.

I hope everyone has a great New Years Eve!

Oh, and I love you, Grandma!

I hope everyone can celebrate this joyous occasion!

#4 Random Fact


Friday, December 21, 2007


So our apartment is watching a puppy until Christmas because our roommate volunteered to keep it until her co-worker gives it to her daughter for Christmas. It's one of the cutest little things I have ever seen. It's a black-tri miniature Australian Shepherd. We named him Miko, though for some odd reason, Anna likes to call him Richard...Anyway. Here are some pics...I took a lot. I've grown sadly attached to the little guy.

Anyway, I'd also like to state some random facts for no apparent reason.

#1 Random fact: Jordan informed me that He and Marie got into an argument over whether or not he was the brother I was referring to in my Realization Blog. And I would like to set the record straight that he was, in fact, the one I was referring to. Sorry, Marie! Haha. So here's a little shout out to my brother who reads my blogs "religiously." Thanks, Jor! Haha.

#2 Random fact: I'm a really really terrible gift wrapper. And you'd think that within the last 10 years I'd learn how to get better at it, but no. I'm almost as bad as Jeremy. Not offense, Jer. But it's true. When I get married, I'm going to have someone come and wrap my presents professionally. There's no way my children are going to believe Santa's elves wrap as terribly as I wrap.

#3 Random fact: Uhmm, I'm really really excited for Christmas this year. I didn't think I would be, but I am sooo happy to be able to spend it with my whole family. I love my family so much, and in the last few months I've realized that more and more.

#4 Random fact: Tim Burton is an absolute genius.

#5 Random fact: My current musical obsessions include Shiny Toy Guns: We Are Pilots, A.F.I.: December Underground, and the Sweeney Todd Soundtrack.

And that is the end of my very random blog. I hope everyone has an incredible week. It's Christmas! Yeahhhhh!!!!!

Looooove, Me

Gooooodbyyyye NuCafe!

Yeah yeah! Today was my last day at Nu Skin for a whole WEEK AND A HALF. I'm soooo happy!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh. I'm so so sooo excited for Christmas this year. And at first, it was hard for me to get used to the idea that this year's Christmas would be spent in Utah, but I love the idea of being so close to my family. I love my family so so much. And the last couple of months have made me realize it more and more. Anyway, I'm basically getting paid to spend time with family. Which...I pretty much can't complain about. Well, that's my news for now!

Concert obsession.

Shiny Toy Guns. What an incredibly band to see live. They really are an incredible band. And currently, they are the band I listen to non-stop and am unable to listen to anything else. Anyway, they are amazing. I'm not sure where they place out of all of the concerts I've seen, but they were definitely up there. I went up with Hillery and James and the traffic was TERRIBLE. We also accidentally cut Brandon off while driving up...Oops! Haha. We were also late to see my friends play [Victim Effect] and Love You Long Time. We were however, able to make it for Ihatekate. And put it nicely...they weren't very talented. Then Datarock came on. But I wasn't a huge fan of them, while Hillery and James were. I ended up hanging out with Rachel the whole time, which was way fun. Thennnn, the Shiny's were up in all their glory! Yeah! We were way in the middle of the mosh pit, but Rach felt dizzy, so she left before they started playing. I stayed in for the first song [Starts With One] where we had a hardcore dance party with Dawn [of Victim Effect] and friends. It was incredible. But I felt like I should head back after that and stay with Rachel as much as I wanted to be in the mosh pit. Anyway, we left early to beat traffic and because Hill and James weren't big fans of the Shiny's live. It made me sad, but that's okay. We missed the traffic by a long shot which was good.

Now I shall list the concerts I've seen in order from best to worst.

1. Blaqk Audio [Sept. 07']
2. 30 Seconds to Mars [Mar. 07' Taste of Chaos]
3. Shiny Toy Guns [Dec. 07' Nightmare Before Christmas]
4. The Used [Mar. 07' Taste of Chaos]
5. Brand New [Mar. 07']
6. Dashboard Confessional [Aug 07' Jamboree]
7. The Format [Aug 07' Jamboree]
8. All American Rejects [Aug 04']
9. Fall Out Boy [ha] [Aug 04']
10. The Hush Sound [Aug 04']
11. The Aquabats [Aug 07' Jamboree]
12. Saosin [Mar. 07' Taste of Chaos]
13. Hawthorne Heights [Aug 04']
14. Evaline [Mar. 07' Taste of Chaos]
15. Datarock [Dec. 07' Nightmare Before Christmas]
16. Ihatekate [Dec. 07' Nightmare Before Christmas]
17. Colbie Collait [Aug. 07' Jamboree]
18. From First to Last [Aug. 04']
19. Senses Fail [Mar. 07' Taste of Chaos]

Concert obsessed? A little.

My epiphany.

So it's extremely late, and I probably shouldn't be up this late writing. But I have no other time that I can this week because tomorrow [Dun dun dun dunnn!] I'm going to the Shiny Toy Guns concert! w00t!

Anyway, this month has been among was of the worst in my life. I'll just come out and honestly say it. There wasn't anything specific making it bad either, I just wasn't happy. Though, now that I think about it, I'm sure there were some definite factors in it. Either way, It was a hard time for me. But there comes times like that in your life when you realize how much a person means to you. Through that hard time there were so many people helping me through it. There were select individuals, however, that no matter what, were there for me. Those are the people I know, will ALWAYS be there for me. No matter what happens. Come rain or shine, they are my best friends. And I feel like listing those 4 people.

Mom: You have such a hard time with everything you go through, and though half of the time you won't admit it, you are in a lot of pain. And yet, for some reason you are ALWAYS able to listen to me. Even if it's a lame story about what happened at work. You know how to put me in a good mood no matter what mood I am in. I love you so much and I am so blessed to have such an amazing mother. I mean that with every fiber of my being. I love you.

Lindsay: You knew exactly what I was going through and exactly how to help me in the time I needed it. Growing up, we always had the hardest time getting along, but now we're so much closer and I'm so so glad. Because you truly are one of my best friends. I love you so much, sis. Thanks for always being there when I need you.

Marci: My twin sister, oh how I love you so. I know that more than anything, you want me to feel that I can turn to you. And I know that i can. I love you and respect you for the decisions you have made in your life. I look up to you so much and I'm so blessed to have such an amazing twin sister in my life. Even though we fight. It's only normal and I love you so much more because of it. haha.

Kali: My best friend in the entire world. We definitely have had our hard times. And though it may be cheesy that I'm dedicating a paragraph in my blog to you, you really are my best friend. No matter who I may lose in my friend circle, you are constantly there whenever I need you. You are one of the few people I know that I could call in the middle of the night and you would listen. I love you, Kal. Thank you for being such an amazing best friend.

Well, there that is. Anyway, after a practical slap in the face, and some long and deep conversations, I realized that there are some things I needed to change before I could truly be happy. A lot of things have been said behind my back by people who I thought really cared about me and who I cared for in return. It hurt to find out, But I realize that by talking in return about people wasn't helping the situation either. So I decided to change it.

I absolutely refuse to speak an unkind word about anyone anymore. Even if it's someone I don't know. It only brings me down. And ever since I have stopped, I have felt so much better about myself and my life. I am able to appreciate things again and I love it. So there is my epiphany, and sort of a new years resolution too, I guess.

Also, I am extremely blessed with an INCREDIBLE job that I wouldn't trade for the world. I thank Heavenly Father for it every single day.

But I am off to bed for now. So have a lovely sleep.

Today I realized

That Kali and my brother are the only people who frequently read my blog entries.
How sad is that. But way to be supportive, yeah!

Anyway, today I came to conclusion. I am absolutely obsessed with cuddling.
And I think that if I had to choose one place I wanted to be more than anywhere else, it would be on a warm bed or couch snuggled closely to something. Whether it's a person or the side of the couch. I came to this conclusion when I woke up this morning on my couch. [My apartment is freezing] and I took my blanket at snuggled to the corner of the couch. I think that is one of my favorite feelings in the world. And I also think that I would rather cuddle with a boy than kiss. Not just regular cuddling. But the cuddling where you feel really secure and they're holding you really tight. I love being warm and feeling happy all at the same time.

I miss that. Anyway.
I'm headed off to work now. Only 18 more days until break! And then I don't have to work until January 2nd! Yeah! And I'm getting paid for all of break which will be nice. Anyway, I'm off. Have a good day!

Facts of Life.

So Kali did this and so did practically the rest of her family, I figured I'd do it as well.
I decided to post 7 random facts about myself.

#1: Quite a few people know this about me...okay, pretty much EVERYONE knows this about me, but I have a sad sad addiction with wint-o-green mints. I trail wrappers after me everywhere I go. Literally. All current residences in my old apartments have complained to me that they still find wrappers hidden in places. Very sad. Fortunately they are all my friends and would never truly be mad at me for that. This addiction started a little over a year ago. Hopefully one day it will stop. I'm hoping it will somehow replace my nail biting habit.

#2: I have a newfound obsession with Jenny Lewis. I feel it is extremely unhealthy. A: Because any major obsession is unhealthy. and B: Because Jenny Lewis is in fact, a woman. But how could anyone NOT love her?? She's a freaking musical genius. She's the reason that I aspire to learn how to play guitar and sing even better. If you don't know who Jenny Lewis is, she's the little actress who plays the daughter of the girl's scout leader in Troop Beverly Hills. More currently, she is the lead singer of the band, Rilo Kiley. and also was in the band, Postal Service. Anyway, I decided to post all of Jenny Lewis' best songs. So there you go.

#3: I wish more than anything that I could go to hair school. I don't care where or when. I just desperately want to. I know that I could do "a lot better things with my talent" but that is one thing that I have always loved doing. I am constantly cutting, dying, or highlighting my hair. It may not be healthy, but maybe if I could work on other's people hair, I wouldn't focus so much on my own. Anyway, it may or may not happen. We'll see.

#4: I have obsessive compulsive disorder. It's not as severe as I make it out to be because it's been proven that OCD is the most common disorder in America. And I think everyone has it in different forms. My OCD is mostly with my car. And cleanliness. I can't stand having my windshield dirty. And if part of my car is immaculate, the rest of my car has to be the same way. Also, when I park, my wheels have to be straight. With cleanliness, everything has to be completely messy or absolutely perfect. It can never be in between. If I start it, I have to finish it. That's pretty much it, except for some other minor things.

#5: I am constantly painting my finger nails...constantly. I think my longest record of not painting them was one week. And that's because every color I paint them, my parents hate. So over Thanksgiving break, I refrained. I'm pretty sure Kali got me stuck on this fetish about a year ago. In high school, I would constantly paint my nails black because I wanted to fit in with the emo kids. And now the colors range between black, white, lime, pink, blue, and silver. And anything else that suits my fancy. Usually the colors last from 1-2 days and then I just cycle through them.

#6: I am absolutely in love with anything fashion oriented. I may not have the cutest clothes. In comparison to Kali Harris, anyway. But I have severe ISD. Yes...yes, it's true. I have Impulsive Shopping Disorder. If I see anything at all that I think is even remotely cute, I WILL buy it. It is a very sad addiction and I am sure many of you out there suffer from the same thing.

#7: I can't stand it when anyone hates me. And I can't stand it when I hate anyone. I have been in so many situations where I have felt like someone doesn't like me for no reason. It's one of the hardest things for me to deal with. Mostly because I try my best to be nice to people without being fake. It is very rare that I will find someone I don't like. I think there's really only honestly one person that I truly dislike and I have very good reasons for it. Kali knows who I speak of. But really, if a person doesn't like me, I do everything in my power to gain their friendship.

And since Kali and Jayme both posted 8, I will too.

#8: My life and everything I do revolves around my senses. Mostly hearing, because without music, I would be completely lost. However, I was born partially blind, and I know without a doubt that the reason my vision was restored was for a very good reason. I find so much beauty in this world because of my sight. And I don't think that I would appreciate music as much if it weren't for my ability to visibly relate it to other things I have seen. Even if it's only to color. Without my ability to see and hear, I would be completely lost. And I wouldn't be the person God has made me to be.

And there are my 8 random facts. I hope you enjoyed it. :)
