Apology, etc.

The format sucks on that last post. Sorry about that. I tried to fix it. Honest. 

Knowledge, etc.

I think that college has taught me the art of the Last Minute Panic form of inspiration. 


























At least I'm learning something.

Maybe There's Some Hope After All

So, this week started out pretty rough, and didn't really get any better. I'm not expecting it to, either. I started out the week sleeping through class, which I never do, and I did it twice. Then there was a bad diagnosis with my car battery, and sometimes, life is just rough. Plus, it snowed, which always puts me in a funk. 


But there have been a few silver linings. First, there was a new episode of House this week, so I watched that instead of while doing my homework. Second, the sun is shining, and it's supposed to get up to 6 degrees Celsius by Friday! Oh, and third, I found out that I'm making 50 cents more an hour than I thought I was. Which puts my rate at 3.5 cupcakes an hour, rather than 3.  And fourth, Yellowcard (my favourite band only since EVER [or high school]) released their single from their upcoming album, and I bought it. It's fantastic. 


Yes, I just used cupcakes as a measurement.

Here's little pre-Valentine's music to get you in the mood.

But I'm Still Looking for Someone with a Sales Background.

Lately, I've been feeling like I'm holding things in, rather than sharing how I really feel.  It's not a great feeling, honestly.  I feel like I'm more full of secrets than I should be. I feel like I'm not being honest to myself, or to the people around me. So, I'm setting a goal. I'm going to try and speak my mind more. Kind of like this: 





But I'm not going to walk through coals. 

Also, I'm sorry the image is bad. It's the only link I could find. And I really wanted to put it up.

A Simple Thank You

Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr., for being brave and standing up for what you knew to be right. Thank you for believing in your cause so much you were willing to die for it. May you continue to inspire us all to advocate for change.

Happy Saturday

It is FINALLY getting warmer here in Provo. I couldn't be happier! There's still snow on the ground, and the air is a bit nippy, but it's not like walking across Siberia every time I go to campus. Or outside in general.  I know that I still have half of January and all of February to get through. But I'm really hoping that it stays above freezing from now on, even if it's just a little above. I'm tired of this:

To the Right, To the Right

Hey guys! I just started a new page, Stuff I Watch. This semester I'm going to keep track of everything I watch. I'll probably get around to rating them a little and giving general descriptions of what they're about. Check back often, cause I'll be constantly updating.

I Had a Dream...

I've lost some of my drive. In high school, I was working towards getting in to college. Once I was in college, I worked hard at getting good grades because that's what everyone did in college. Then, it was because I wanted to get in to the film program. Now that I'm in college and in the film program, I've got nothing left to work for. It doesn't help that I have to be here longer than I'd planned on, either. 


I need a dream. A reason to work hard. Or something to work for.

Confessions, Part I

The first week of school has come and gone. Now, with Monday almost over, I have a confession: 


I'm tired of school already.

Auld Lang Syne

Happy new year, friends! I rang in the new year with my family, watching How To Train Your Dragon. Then I stayed up until forever, watching movies with R. and T. Then, I slept in. I spent today at my grandparent's house making food and playing games. In my family, we have this new years tradition of making dinner from a foreign country. This year, we decided to do England. So we made dishes like Toad in the Hole and Bubble and Squeak. And we had Christmas crackers. 


I've spent the last few days thinking back on the past year. A lot has happened. I've moved twice. I took my first screen writing class. I got my wisdom teeth out, and I got braces. I bought my first pair of skinny jeans. I learned a lot about life and love. I'm excited for what this year will bring. 


And since it is a new year, that means that it's time for resolutions. This year, I've decided to not set strict resolutions.  I'd rather just set goals that will make me happy. So, here are my goals: 


- go on a trip (preferably off the continent)
- graduate from college 
- be more dedicated to my vegetarian diet 
- kiss a cute boy 
- add more to my bucket list 
- do something drastic with my hair 
- eat something ridiculously unhealthy
- make something crafty 




So, dear reader, how was your new year's? Did you set any resolutions?
