48 Degree weather calls for
steaming hot cocoa
my 'Codes and Keys' mug.

My own mother thinks I'm out to get her.


Admit it, we all have a love-hate relationship with Mondays.
We all complain to no end about "how tired we are" or, "we should't even be here"
I hear atleast 5 people every Monday blab on about how much they hate this blessed day.

So I propose something, 'The 10 things I love today' every monday.
To knock some sense into the Anti-Monday activists.

  1. Short classes. Who doesn't?
  2. Pumpkin carving for family night.
  3. Going to Costco and buying fruit leather. My favorite.
  4. Talking to J.C. about our crazy teacher..
  5. Wavy hair. My go-to hair style as of this school year.
  6. Not having 7 years of homework because it is the end of the term.
  7. Hearing Mr. Biggs scream like a girl.
  8. Baking pumpkin cookies for the 5th time this month.
  9. Going to bed at promptly 9 p.m.
  10. Being in love with the Autumn weather.

7 things.

1. I greatly enjoy my time alone, I am without a doubt an introvert.

2. Green eyes & red hair are two features that I am obsessed with. They are some of Gods greatest creations.

3. I am a professional at EBay shopping. It is highly addicting and I have mastered the art of online shopping.

4. I loathe driving. Whenever someone else in the car is capable of driving, I hand them the keys and forget about it.

5. When I grow up I hope to open a boutique full of urban & crafty items.

6. I have not been kissed, held hands with, or been asked on a official date by a young lad yet.

7. I could sit outside on a over-cast day listening to music for hours.

City and Colour,
Iron & Wine
Arcade Fire
sooth the soul.

Because sometimes you just cannot let go of the incredibly meaningful friendship you have with somone.
Because no matter how much time you had with them, you cherished every moment.

Because no matter how awful you treated another, you just can't forget about em'.

He is the most adorable man of the face of the planet.

He creates incredible music & he knows what he stands for.

He has impeccable style & a cute little family.

I need someone like this.

Take the pleasure of pushing the little 'Pause' button at the bottom of the page,
and take a moment to listen to this beautiful rendition of one of my favorite Arcade Fire songs.

Brownie points.

Grandma-Sitting: no, this is not the art of sitting on your grandmother, just merely watching your adorable grandmother so as she is properly cared for.

After my grandma had a fall a few months back, we have made sure that someone is with her at almost all times.
While I enjoy the time I spend with my grandparents greatly, sometimes the fact that my gram tends to say borderline outright crazy things during the wee hours of the night almost kills me. I spend about 1 night a week with her and help her if she needs something during the night, but lately i can't help but wonder why she says things over and over again like "someone is knocking at the door"
"no grandma no one is at the door"
"are you sure"
"yes, but I will check anyways"

So then I 'check' the door for the mysterious knocker, and no one is there, but this happens nightly, at the most odd hours give or take.

Then there are times when she wakes me up at 3:30 a.m. So she can rummage through the garbage to find the 'lost' telephone.

I love my grandma, but I don't love getting 4 hours of sleep.

I sure do hope this scores me some brownie points in Heaven!

Because life doesn't stop for anybody;

Because I felt like my old title was holding me back from certain things.
Because fresh starts can be received whenever you want one bad enough.
Because sometimes the things we want most, just don't work out in the end.
Because we aren't meant to understand everything that happens in our lives.
Because somethings should be re-evaluated.
Because forgiveness heals the heart.
Because we shouldn't spend each day waiting for a better one to come along.
Because the Lord works in mysterious ways.
Because I have so much to learn.
Because time by yourself means more then we think.
Because somethings are meant to be.

"you are yourself when no one is watching"

This is more true then I can hardly explain.
How often do we find ourselves worrying entirely about what other people think, when really, we should just be ourselves.

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Don't waste your time on people who take you for granted.
Don't waste time on people who don't bring out the better side of you.
Don't waste time on people who don't love and accept you for you.

Friends and family are the foundation of our lives,
Without people who uplift us, we go nowhere in life.

Make sure you take the time to figure out who really contributes to your life, and seek out others that will.

At times this is harder then anything to do, but the difference it makes when we do,

Is incredible.

if you dont mind reading about a string of random events..

first off,
I have found my brain captivated with thoughts of someone new lately,
it happens to be a gent.
he is completley not my type,
he makes me laugh,
I looked forward to class with him,
he has blonde hair,
he ski's,
he skates,
he has the nicest of smiles.
I have had a smidgen of a crush on him for who knows how long,
and suprisingly,
I have come to the conclusing that

I am going to ask HIM on a date.

I am pushing all thoughts of gender rolls aside,
because in the end,
all it's really about is having fun,
and not worrying about what others think,


oh, how i would love to go.


this is a video that comes from France in the Epoct Center of Walt Disney World.
This video is obviously not as great as in person but it still captures the pure beauty of France and how breath taking it really is.

I wish to go to France so badly some day, I couldn't wish for anything more.

it's sort of long, don't feel obligated to watch the whole thing.
a few minutes is all you need to get a glimpse of this wonderful place.
