my recap

Last night I got 5 texts telling me that Zachary Levi was singing at the Academy Awards and making sure I was watching it. I have such good friends.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are handsome as ever. And super witty and hilarious and they play off each other so well. RDJ should host next year.

Russell Brand and Helen Mirren should have had more time too. So classy. I want to be her when I grow up.

I liked Scarlett Johansson's dress. I still sometimes have bitter feelings toward her...

I feel really good about all the awards that were given. I'm glad Christian Bale got Best Actor in a Supporting Role. He's phenomenal. I do think that Alexandre Desplat and Hans Zimmer need to win something though.

I also liked the Harry Potter autotune. And the opening Inception/other movie spoof. That was great. But I thought the hosting was eh. James Franco didn't look like he was having fun up there. Still like him though.

All in all, so awesome. I love pop culture. I feel like I should be a part of that someday.

6 less lonely girls

St. George.
Making people laugh on the freeway by holding up that ^ sign.
Jumping in a pool full of ice water.
Sleeping with the lights on because we just forgot to turn them off.
Standing around the kitchen counter inhaling candy and cheetos.
Becoming fully converted to the ways of Justin Bieber.
20/20 and other scary situations.
Weird lawn ornaments.
Following the Aggie baseball team around the town.
"You're a fox"
And winning an aggressive battle of words on I-15 with the aforementioned window sign.

A fun weekend.

home is wherever i'm with you

I'd really like to marry someone who will play and sing songs with me.
We will jam all day long.
Guitar would be good.
Then we could be like these guys.

I'd also like him to get the spiders
and be good at directions
and reach things up on the high shelves.
Please and thank you.

guess what

I'm going to college.

"Chuck, I fell for you a long long time ago. After you fixed my phone, and before you started defusing bombs with computer viruses. So, yes. Yes. I love you."

cute, no?

It's the monkey I made yesterday.
His name is going to be Zaboomafu.
But I'll call him Left Ear for short.
Because I accidentally made his left ear a weird shape, obviously.

el campo

i'm in a camping mood.

i feel like getting away from everything for a while.

and cooking stuff over a fire.
and stargazing.
and wrapping up in a plaid blanket.
and hearing wind in the trees.

sounds good today.

playing 10 games of scrabble at the same time,
eating paninis,
spaghetti for breakfast,

i love...

...reading blogs.


I love seeing all the cool things you guys do, and the cool things you make, and the cool things you think. It's inspiring really.

I feel like blogging has made me more creative. And happier.
And it might sound weird, but I think I've gotten to know me better by writing a blog.

Blogs help me notice the little things that make life so great!

So thanks y'all for being awesome.

Snog, Date, Dump:
Gryffindor Edition.

Oliver Wood
Cormac McLaggen
Dean Thomas
It's a hard one.
Cormac is kind of a jerk, but there is no denying that he's an extremely handsome guy.
Dean is just awesome, and looks like a young english Denzel.
It's hard to resist Oliver's accent, charm, and quidditch skills.

For me? I can't be sure, but I think I would say
Snog Cormac
Date Oliver
Dump Dean

Who would you snog, date, and dump?

golden years

It's Viernes, but I don't have a video to post today.
Cameron and I have been working on a skiing highlight video of some guys from our school all week, and it isn't quite done yet.
It's going to be so "tight, chill, sick" though.
It might be done by next week.

A Knight's Tale.
Quite possibly my favorite movie. I have seen it enough times to have it completely memorized. Great story, great acting, great cinematography, great music. It's a winner, for real. By the time it's over, your heart is just exploding with emotion.

Here's my favorite scene.
Watch it. It'll make you so happy.
And have I mentioned that Golden Years by David Bowie is one of my all time favorite songs? It's because of this scene.

Love you, Heath.
The movie trailer is here, if you're interested.
Best movie.

zombie in the snow

You know that scene on Day After Tomorrow, when it's so freezing outside, that the fuel in the helicopters freeze and plummet to the ground, then guys open the helicopter doors and they instantly freeze? Like, the blood in their veins freezes and they all die?
Or that part on Batman Begins when Bruce Wayne is climbing up the mountain in the blizzard to that weird ninja temple and his face is all covered in ice once he gets there?

That was me this morning.
Frigid. Cold. Outside.

And my car heater decided to malfunction... so my hand was sort of frozen to the steering wheel once I got to school and I think the inside of my lungs were coated with frost.
Not my best morning.

But even though all that happened, I still had a good day. Happiness is a choice.

I'm trying really hard not to let the little things get me down. Because lately I feel like I've kind of been having an on-and-off pity party for myself. Why? Not really sure. I have just felt so moody moody moody lately. Bah! I'm done with that.

Let's be happy.
