i have this thing for wolves.

okay.. so i wasn't going to post anything about seeing the movie. i hate bella and edward. they are gay. i only liked one part of the movie. one young, male wolf to be precise.

i hate bella because she has respiratory/acting and apparently grooming problems:

i hate edward because he is an absolute COOTIE:

And jacob: oh jacob. bella is blind. you can have me! im long as you never whisper in indian to me. it freaks me out.

i mean come on... LETS BE SERIOUS PEOPLE. is there even a comparison between dirty rob pattinson and young, spunky taylor lautner?

bigs and littles

heppy thanksgibbing everyone. :) hooray to the pilgrams for comin on over to start a wonnnnnderful land of the free. ps did you know that they brought 44 tons of BEER to the US? and only 10,000 gallons of water? pah-the-tic. no wonder every 3 seconds someone dies from alcohol poisoning.

anyways. im thankful for alot. im thankful for alot of the big things in life, but i'm also sooo grateful for the little things.

i'm thankful for..

-When my mom gets up on the little kitchen stool to search for spices in our spice cabinet

-When we break things and my pa fixes it in .02 seconds. he is magic

-My dog and how stupid he is, because he makes for great jokes. (minus when he bites little kids)

-Sister moments..example: when we have laughing attacks, or tell stories about our horrifying experiences in 'maturation' class back in the 5th grade (not a normal thing, just a funny thing that happened today. i swear.), or when we re-live childhood experiences that make us laugh until sheer tears of shame and hilariousness pour from our eyes because we were such awkward children.

-Locks on our doors so when we hear gunshots we can lock ourselves into safety asap. (mostly so michelle won't complain all night. =) love you.)

-Chocolate. Seriously

-Education. Though Logan is frigid.. (and sometimes when im experiencing the awful windchill in the morning.. i feel like hell would be decked out in ice instead of fire. ya? no? you agree?).. I'm grateful for the opportunity i have to get a good education and have parents who support the choices i make. righteous!

-Medicine. Without it, We wouldnt be able to spend extra years with our wonderful and hilarious mother. She is great. God bless chemotherapy and all the brilliant doctors out there. thank you for saving my ma, so we can have plenty of more thanksgivings together. and so she can frantically make pies the night before thanksgiving. shes so cute =)

-Friends. "People are better than no people". Sometimes you find out that your 'friends' arent really 'friends' and that sucks. But when you find a good one, a really good one, i've learned to hold onto that no matter what.

-Gospel. I'm blessed because i have total ocd about certain things..and somehow i've kept my new years resolution in reading my scrips and praying every night. how it happened? i don't know, but i'm so thankful that i've been able to do that and that i can't go to sleep without it. I'm thankful for the joy that the gospel brings into my life and the spirit it brings into our home.

-Love. Not romantic love or anything..just love. love for family, love for church, love for theater, love for learning, love for friends, love for missionaries.
"They do not love, who do not show their love" - William Shakespeare

I am so lucky.

strange weekend

this weekend has been odd. and really sad actually.

-I haven't done hardly any homework today.. which is really strange.

-USU lost to BSU in front of anyone in the U.S. who watches ESPN. hahahaa. we are awful and we always will be. God bless the true blooded Aggies! Dream big football team, dream big.

-I got an e-mail from my friend in Afghanistan! I'm glad I'm only hearing about his problems with the sand and not gunshot wounds. Thank heavens. I can only imagine what he's been seeing lately.

-I just went to the grocery store and got chocolate milk, sunny d, pomegranate juice, and a huge jug of water. dehydrated? i think so.

-A perfect little jar of Nutella somehow jumped into my cart again. I dunno how it happened.

And worst of all..
-A 19 year old boy died last night in my apartment complex. They don't know what happened either, they think it was a heart attack..and the police already ruled out drugs and alcohol. He was supposed to pick someone up but never showed, so his parents tried to phone him all day. They finally got a hold of his roommate and asked the roommate to see if he could find their son for them. His roommate walked into his room and found him dead, lying in his bed. Apparently he was there all day and no one noticed. No one noticed that he had died. All day. He was in my ward, but no one really knew him or who he was. How pathetic is that? That we don't know if he was a member or not or if he just didn't come to church often or even who his friends were? Its been hurting my heart all day. For his roommate who found him, for his friends, and especially for his family who won't be having their son home for thanksgiving this weekend :(

strange weekend.

quote of the day

At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say, they're what you do. Some things you say cause there's no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.

school. womps.

this week.. i have done more hours of homework than i think i have ever done in my entire life. papers and term projects and things i should have done months ago only seem to get done when i have zero time at the last possible minute. so much college, so little time. sitting on my purple couch gets REAL OLD after 3 instances of my butt falling asleep.

oh and also i think someone put a hex on me. everytime i walk to my math class on campus, which is 4 days a week at 12:30 left eye starts to water right about the time i pass the tsc patio. EVERYTIME without fail. i'll tell you how it goes tomorrow. i'll be watching for anyone in the bushes with a unicorn-tail core wand muttering things at me.
