We Are Robin Hood!

This show has officially changed my life.
BBC Robin Hood.
I'm in love.

You can expect a long long long blog post about this in a week, after the series finale.

Tank you, Andy. Tanks.

I'm thankful for the Harry Potter books, and how I feel at home when I read them.
I'm thankful for sweatshirts. I wear my Les Mis one, my KUER one, and my red one, and basically nothing else.
I'm thankful for my dad's employment. We get to do a lot of cool things.
I'm thankful when I wake up early on a Saturday morning and I get to roll over and go back to sleep.
I'm thankful for my friends. Without them, I wouldn't have any friends.
I'm thankful I can drive, and I have the means for doing so.
I'm thankful I don't have to walk two miles to get water for my family.
I'm thankful when I have a nice little surplus of money.
I'm thankful for those people that motivate me to go to school.
I'm thankful for the gospel, the Book of Mormon, and the Atonement.
I'm thankful for Nicole Darais. Without her I would probably be dead, or worse: expelled.
I'm thankful that I only have to go to approximately 50 more periods of Mr. Kurtz's class.
I'm thankful for my family. They're basically the coolest.
I'm thankful for movies. They are how I find solace.
I'm thankful for technology, but not as much as you, you see. Always and forever.

Forgive me for posting this a couple days after Thanksgiving.
But hey, we should all be thankful everyday of the year, right?

Redeem my iTunes card
Watch Robin Hood

Here's what I have to do today:
Clean my room
Write my talk
Make Kirsten's Spanish video
Do at least one Financial Literacy assignment
Write my Christmas list
Do that Biology assignment
Do my math homework

Too bad it matters.


27 days

But who's counting?

Sing it, guys.

I'll be listening.

Anti-Twilight, I am.

Scene 1

CHARLIE: Happy birthday, Bella! You're 18 now, old enough to make adult decisions and choose your own path!
BELLA: Eh, I think I'll just keep doing whatever Edward wants.
CHARLIE: If I had any actual relevance in your life I'd be concerned. Anyway, here's a camera. Use it to take pictures of your friends.
BELLA: When you say "friends," do you mean "friend," and do you specifically mean Edward?
CHARLIE: Who else would I mean? The classmates you've been ignoring since you first laid eyes on Whitey von Pastyface?

If you want to read the rest of this hilarious and cynical screenplay, click here. It's definitely worth reading.

Team Weasley.

In ninth grade, I was a wee bit obsessed with those pass-along emails.
"Forward this to everyone you know and you will be kissed by your crush within 24 hours!"
I have since moved on. As I was purging my inbox of such emails, I came across one that was actually kind of funny. So, I did it.
Put your iPod on shuffle and answer each question with the title of the song that comes up.


WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL? how far we've come

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY? don't charge me for the crime

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE? failure by design

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU? journey to the past


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE? does your mother know?

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY? interrogation


WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING? the damage in your heart



WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS? with or without you

some of these turned out pretty funny.

stack successful!

I wasted a good portion of my day on this game today.
Super Stacker 2.
I beat all 40 levels.
And it only took about 3 and a half hours.
Here is the "song-that-affected-me" of the day:
The Heart of Life
By John Mayer
It is gorgeous.
I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go away, it should
But I know the heart of life is good
You know it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go away, it should
But I know the heart of life is good
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it's good
Today was not bad at all.

Question: Is Georgetown an ivy league school? Because... I really want to go there.
Also, Columbia College in Chicago. Their film program is off the chain.

I think I just really want to live in a big city.

Ok, that's all.

I'm done being ungrateful for where I live.

Utah's nice.

Red and Black.

Les Miserables moves my soul.
Every time.

I can watch our VHS of the Les Mis dream cast over and over.
{in my life, she has burst like the music of angels, the light of the sun....}

I've become really burnt out on calculus as of late.
One reoccuring phrase all of a sudden just irks me.
"Differentiate the function with respect to x."
"Graphs A and B have extrema at 4 and -1, respectively."
"So, the graph has symmetry with respect to the origin."
"Find the derivative with respect to the rate."
You know what?
I have no respect for calculus at all.

Even though i google-imaged "calculus" and got that picture,
I actually know how to do that stuff.
I hate so much about the things you choose to be.

this is what happens when you ask someone to preference with paper doves and a yogurt lid:
you get a stapler in jello on your doorstep. and a note...

good one, brock. that was slightly awesome.

I hate it when this happens.
It happened today.
And it's a real shame I procrastinate so bad.

Halloween 2009

Kirsten = Luna Lovegood
Jessie = Hermione Granger
Halloween = Awesome


I watched Wait Until Dark. I like it. I will probably enter an Alfred Hitchcock phase very soon.
I also watched Hook. Um.. quite possibly my favorite movie.

"Don't let your arms get tired!" "I am a child." "So, Peter. You've become a pirate." "Why doesn't someone just shoot me in the head!" "I hate, I hate, I hate Peter Pan." "Good night, Neverland!" "I want a cookie, I want a party." "He said he was a window washer." "Run home Jack!" "Reach on down and touch your toes. How long since you looked at those?" "The Boo Box." "Who's the shrub?" "You're afraid of getting sucked out." "Now crack open your mouth, and drool." "There you are, Peter!" "I want I want I want, me me me, mine mine mine, now now now." "Gandhi ate more than this." "Flunk the maggot." "Substitue chemistry teacher!" "To a ten year old, I'm huge." "Yeah, he lost 'em good!" "Rufio, Rufio, Ru-Fi-Ooooooo!" "Kill the lawyer!" "You lewd, crude, rude bag of pre-chewed food dude." "I've just had an apostrophe." "Good form." "He'll fight, he'll fly, he'll crow... and then he'll die." "Bangerang!"
