winners get prizes

Do you want to hear something kind of cool?
We sent the Kingsford Ski Edit we made to the Utah High School Film Festival.
And it won second place in the video soup category! Not bad at all.
We even got a fancy shmancy plaque/certificate so it's all official.

I feel pretty good about that.
You can watch it right here, if you like.

they are in love

I stayed up all night and watched the Royal Wedding.
Not to be unpatriotic or anything... but it was way better than any 4th of July celebration I have ever seen.
She was so radiant and beautiful. Both of them are so happy and in love.
It was like watching a fairytale, but it's real life!

the ever-present bangs dilemma.

bangs. i have them. kind of.
i'm at the weird middle ground.
they're too short to go back in a ponytail without bobby pins
and too long to really be considered bangs.
i'm digging jessica biel's bangs (JB... ha)
but i'm wondering if i should grow them all the way out for the summer...?
or what. i don't know.

this is my thought process every morning when it's time to do my hair. hh.

power initials

All the cool guys have the initials JB.

Jason Bourne
James Bond
Jack Bristow and Jack Bauer
And even the Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber.

I want to be in the club.
I'm going to have to marry someone with a last name beginning with B.

this is me, happy.

cadbury eggs
"i know that my redeemer lives"
the duckies in my backyard
"bohemian rhapsody"
friends that are basically sisters
and my other friends
and my parents and grandparents
"something that i want" from the tangled soundtrack
new skirt
finally finishing late work
joseph gordon levitt and marion cotillard are in the new batman
my whole day today

happy easter

paul is dead

Paul, our van.
The car we've had for about 16 years is now beyond repair.
Someone had to come and take it away today,
and they're probably going to throw it in the fiery furnace.
Lots of good memories in this car.


scholarships. from Jessie on Vimeo.

i forgot to post this yesterday. so it's video sabado instead of video viernes.

we had a video project in my video class that was due this week. and we all totally forgot about it. typical chaz.

so we hurried and made this one in like 9 minutes. literally.

theme: college prep

phrase: "where did you get your scholarship?"

object: twinkie

another theme phrase object video we made was dad? maybe you've seen it.

today felt like a wednesday and i was happy when i found out it was thursday.

ok. i locked the keys in the running car again. you can tell which days i'm feeling out of it.

i forgot how much i like spring. everything smells so fresh. and it's light outside when i have to go to school. i think spring afternoons/early evenings are my favorite. i just want to lay outside on the grass and breathe spring air.

dream date. i have been thinking about it.
it would start with a hot air balloon ride. and my date would be a certified hot air balloon pilot so there wouldn't be the extra person up there. third wheels are awkward. then we would have a picnic. either on a golf course or in the woods. then we would end the night with stargazing. stargazing in the middle of nowhere so we could see billions of stars.

they all seem like good books too, sue me.

i'm the older one.

here is a kind of awkward and washed out photo of me and my little sister kirsten at the driving range on saturday.

we're about 2 years apart, but a lot of people think we are twins. or the same person.
except on friday.

we were at the movie theatre. we were purchasing tickets and the nice boy who was helping us asked kirsten, "hey, do you have an older sister?"
we both kind of blanked him for a second. then kirsten pointed at me and i said, "uh... it's me."
then we laughed. and i think he felt like a fool.
obviously, he doesn't think we are twins.

it might just be my favorite thing about vegas.

that ceiling full of huge glass-blown flowers.
i could look at it all day long.

as prom approaches

boy: hey date, what color is your dress?
girl: well... it's like a goldish mustard
boy: oh, yellow?
girl: no...

my little playlist today

jerk it out - caesars

mr. pitiful - matt costa

girlfriend - phoenix

falling - ben kweller

africa - toto

the king's speech

i fell in love with this movie.

it was so good. and so so so well done.

everything was so pretty. the scenery, the sets, the costumes.

helena bonham carter, colin firth, and geoffrey rush were all phenomenal.

and it was actually funnier than i thought it would be. it was really witty humor.

this time period is so amazing to me.

ah, i loved it.

and alexandre desplat is becoming one of my favorite score composers.

ps - all my posts are double spacing themselves. i can't fix it. hm.

i have a lot of freckles

and they are starting to show more because the sun is out.

there is one day left until spring break. even more sun.

i'm going to las vegas. to see the eiffel tower.

one day i'll go see the real one.

i daydream about visiting france almost every day.

maybe even living there for a while.

and lately, i've been daydreaming about a trip to tahiti. doesn't it look amazing?

i wonder if the water is cold.

i know a girl from tahiti. she is one of my heros.

i'm going to bed early tonight.

a great day

happy birthday to two of the loves of my life.

robert downey jr and heath ledger.
i was going to spend the day watching a bunch of movies that they are in,
like knight's tale, sherlock holmes, 10 things i hate about you, and iron man.
but it happens to be the busiest week of the year.
listening to the soundtracks will have to suffice.
happy birthday.

and a cheesy analogy

i'm stressed out. it's true.

march/april/may is always the busy time of year for me.

this year it seems especially crazy.

so much to do all at the same time.

i feel like i'm riding a roller coaster. but i don't have the safety restraint on.

and while i'm focusing on not falling off the ride,

my shoes are coming off and things are falling out of my pockets.

but i like that picture of balloons.

it alleviated some stress for a minute or two.

spring break in one week. one week.

crazy week

let's be real. i was a mess this week.
but the video you are about to see was a product of the madness.
i made it in record time. it was a total of like 10 hours of work.
then it played in the assembly. and people loved it! it was so gratifying.
kati and sam were way awesome too. didn't they do a great job? i love those guys.
