I made this video in honor of the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros concert I'm going to tonight.

Actually, I totally forgot about it and found it on my iPod last week. I was deathly sick with absolutely no voice for like 3 days back in March. And me trying to sing this Edward Sharpe song was just too funny not to record.

Well, that was embarrassing. But mostly funny. Singing that took all of my energy, I remember.

And I really am going to their concert tonight! Wahoo!

whistle. click click.

Tonight, I watched Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Weird, random movie. But I liked it and the animation style and the actors who voiced it and the friends I watched it with.

backpack backpack

today, i started the "cleaning out the room for college" process by cleaning out my backpack, which went into the closet sometime mid-may and wasn't touched until today. some treasures i found:

several permission slips/disclosure documents. good thing i turned those in...
$26. my refund from the financial office.
$1. from mr. deans. he gave it to me for being the smartest in my government class. favoritism?
a piece of paper where i practiced forging nate greenwood's mom's signature for him.
our kpgr christmas card.
a crunched up heath bar.
the page of the best mr. newman quotes, courtesy of nathan church.
a map of the world that danny harding gave me. i'm going to hang it up.
a note from danny harding, which was attached to our homecoming pictures. very poetic:
a picture is worth a thousand words. our homecoming memories are worth a million.

oh, high school. you were good to me.
i'm thrilled that i don't have to go back though.

in real life

I just got home from spending a few days at a cabin at Bear Lake with my extended family.
I felt like I was living Dan in Real Life the whole time.

And it was so fun.

ice ice land.

I learned a word that describes my condition.


Noun: A strong desire to travel

I'm wanderlust-ing.

Where have you always wanted to go?

moving to the girls dormitory

this weekend i had a sad realization. i'm moving out in 6 weeks. this beauty of a bedroom will no longer exist for me. yeah, i'll have a different room upstairs where i'll sleep when i come home. but this room has been my abode for 6 years! the most comfortable big bed of all time. my many movie posters filling the walls. twinkle lights. my life size johnny depp. a walk in closet. purple walls. i'm going to miss it.

the good news is i'll have to get rid of A TON of stuff before i move out. i have way too much and it'll be nice to cut down. also, my new roommate is so cool. you guys should meet her sometime.

because everything would look good as a polaroid.

pretending like we actually had film to put in that camera.
one day we will be able to afford it. we made some big plans.

we also bought some post-it notes and drove to cailey's house to borrow a pen.
saw a vivid double rainbow and drove to the end of it.
watched parts of 3 documentaries.
listened to elephant love medley. it would be a perfect song to be playing while riding a roller coaster.
and realized we have great old person brooklyn accents.

i'll miss evan when he moves to logan. good thing there's skype.

the epic conclusion.

Last night. So fun.
Also, this is what happens when your camera flash is broken. Pretend you like blurry pics.

i'm so excited. and sirius black is standing behind me.
want a dark mark? me and danny are professional dark mark-ers.
waiting waiting waiting.
Neville and our Mimbulus Mimbletonia.
Me and the most legit Lupin ever. I thought it was really him.

I could probably write a really long post about the movie.
I'll just say it in as few words as possible:
I loved it. It was perfect.
I thought I would be more sad right now, now that it's all over...
But I'm completely at peace inside.
It was the perfect ending.
Harry Potter is my greatest joy.

things i learned from movies. part 1


I took swimming lessons for probably 5 years and I never was good at treading water.
I saw Elijah Wood tread in the movie Flipper one day, and all that changed.
I tried treading water Elijah-style.
I was a pro. I'd been doing it wrong the whole time.

Movies. They're good for more than just entertainment. That's all.

apple-Z apple-Z apple-Z

that is my face. the face of a girl who edits all day.

yesterday i worked 13 hours.
today i'm working about 12.
it's called: i'm one editor who is now doing the work of three editors.
cool, yo.

despite the face, i actually do like making tv shows and stuff.
i wouldn't want to be working somewhere else.
well. maybe harry potter world. or as zachary levi's personal assistant.

no words

i can't even talk about it.
i don't think you guys understand how much i love harry potter.
"love" is an understatement actually.
this is going to be the best/hardest thing ever.

it's the hot time of year.

summer has been good to me. i have officially been working at my job for one month and i've gotten two saweet paychecks. i like that boy and he treats me like a princess. i have been reading harry potter books and listening to enya, bon iver, and edward sharpe nonstop. i watched ryan reynolds be a super hero. i got dirty feet from playing barefoot in the grass and have slept in a fort. i almost pulled an all nighter and have eaten a lot of otter pops; only the green ones. i went to a rodeo and drove in a jeep. i chalked the bk and hiked to a waterfall.

my days have been busy.
they have been good too.

and i'm going to the mountains to hang out at a lake for the rest of this week.
oh hallelujah. let's stop time for a while.

sometimes kirsten sneaks pictures of us, like the one above.
i'm glad she does.
