antarctica = college

i'm sure it'll get better. hopefully.
and there are good parts. like an awesome film teacher who shows snl clips.
i'm just the classic clueless freshman right now.

typical texting conversation between my sister and i

me: last night i had a dream that we went to utah lake, but they wouldn't let us take the boat out because andy samberg and james franco were training seals in the marina.

kylie: nice! snl+arrested development. here's my dream. jason bourne was trapped in the JKB and i knew who he was, but he had to pretend to be a student. and clinton from what not to wear was the evil mastermind.

maybe you remember this conversation i posted about a few months ago too. we still think we have celebrity esp.

con: it's really hot and humid on the third floor.

pro: no spiders on the third floor!

con: the fluorescent light is so unflattering. you can see every split end and every skin imperfection you never knew you had.

pro: someone in this building has a wi-fi network called "slytherin common room."

i don't have much money. but boy if i did, i'd buy a big house where we both could live

when i hear a good song, i listen to it like a million times in a row.

this is a really good cover. i love the elton john song, but this is so much better!
i just love her. and the video makes me excited for winter clothes.

how wonderful life is, now that you're in the world.

all you morning people, i admire you.

12:30 am - ok i need to leave for work at 9:00 tomorrow and i should probably take a shower.
12:39 am - i'm too tired to shower tonight, i'll do it in the morning.
12:54 am - why does it take me so long to get in bed?

7:15 am alarm - oh heck no.
7:20 am snooze alarm - ok, do i really need to shower this early?
7:47 am - i am glad i'm not at the first day of high school right now. graduation day was a beautiful thing.
7:51 am - ok, i'll get up at 8 and shower.
8:02 am - i'll get up at 8:15
8:30 am - well, it's too late for a shower now.. i didn't even need one that bad.
8:44 am - i think i'll put on this grey shirt and do my hair in a braid. why didn't i just get up and shower?

fetus face might become my permanent face one day...

1. i have watched this like 10 times today. it looks like a sweet love story.

week in review

pictured this week:

forehead peelage. darn you, sunburn.

not pictured this week:

a bike ride on sidewalks being sprayed by the sprinklers.

losing a chalk fight. someone tried to convince me i drew all over my own face with chalk. he's remembering it wrong.

new red jeans. they are spicy.

a fire pit with a lot of people that i like. awesome.

the driving range with my homies. and the three of them are coming to college with me! yes.

this week? stellar so far.

bring the good stuff

a text from a strange number: hey jessica, you're interested in buying my [stuff]? let me know when and where you want to meet. preferably after 8 pm.

pretty sketchy, right? until you replace [stuff] with [english language text books].

don't worry, i'm not involved in any shady deals.
i just buy text books on the black market.

can we talk about fears for a minute?

my fears:

having my front teeth knocked out.
people i love dying.
being unable to have babies.
having my heart broken.
mushrooms growing in the yard.
most aquatic animals.
getting a fatal disease.

but i think what i'm the very most afraid of is change and the unknown.

another distraction

sophomore year, nicole and i loved this website. we would interpret our dreams nearly every night and learn a whole lot about ourselves. simply type in an object or place from your dream, and voila, it gives you the meaning.

i just rediscovered it.

i wonder how legit it is...
but it's still kind of fun.

my dream the other night...

To dream that you cannot find what you are shopping for, suggests that you are trying to find a solution to some life problem.

ha. how interesting.

Saturday, August 13, 2011

it's normal...

to be feeling like this every day. right?


celebrity is as celebrity does

I was on the front page of the daily herald today.

just descending the stairs at the broadcasting building.
yes, i'm making a weird face. i had a brownie in my mouth. how embarrassing.
and i had my glasses on because i can't see when studio lights are in my face.
and the video playing on the third tv screen is my b-roll i fetched from my archive for the dedication. woo.

at a loss for words

some days...
i just can't really think of anything worth saying.
besides that spiders are taking over. they are everywhere these days.
and i like a boy that sings canadian tenors at the top of his lungs when we drive places.

well, i'm off to watch this movie.

i hope you all are feeling more eloquent than i am right now.

you either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

my sister and i were just talking about how much we love a good superhero movie.

ryan reynolds as a pilot/creating things with his mind? yes please.
getting real excited for the next batman. i don't think it'll disappoint.
i feel way good about andrew garfield as a spiderman. i trust him.
who doesn't like clark kent? really.
i watch the captain america trailer multiple times per day. i gotta get to a theatre stat.
and, well, you guys know how i feel about robert downey jr. love.

there's something about the superheroes.

spoiler alert.

I'm on this week's episode of BYU Weekly, which airs on Wednesday.
I know because I made it. See?

I got interviewed about what it's like to be an editor.
My favorite part was that i got to make my own super.
That's the blue thing that says the name of the person.
I make them for hundreds of other people, but this one is all mine!

Wow, I gotta get out of edit bay 12 stat.

jafar is creepy and sexist.

i watched aladdin today.

i love going back and watching those movies you loved as a child, because there is a whole other side of more adult humor in them. not saying i'm an adult, by any means. but there was a line i had never heard before that made me laugh.

[right after the hypnotized sultan says jasmine is to marry jafar]

jafar - "you are speechless, i see. such a fine quality in a wife."

bahaha. i found it comical.

fish lake, ut.

remember when i went to the mountains last month? here is the video documentation.

it's nothing too special as far as editing goes. i sort of edit all day every day at work, so editing at home too hasn't really been a priority.

but here are some clips thrown together without any real rhyme or reason. and with edward sharpe playing in the background.

awesome things.

1. toast with butter and honey.

2. when the 30 rock episode you are watching is so funny that you have to pause it so you can laugh and not miss anything.

3. the sound after effects makes when it is done rendering something.

4. people who can drive stick shift and are really good at it.

5. x-men: first class.

have an awesome weekend!

if i was a fashion blogger...

my blog would be called
"gray every day"

because it's true. i wear gray every day.
good thing i'm not a fashion blogger.

this is a fact

can I just say
that brushing your teeth in the shower is one of the greatest feelings ever.
so refreshing.
never done it? do it. today.
you will instantly feel like 40% more awesome.

2 things.

I saw my wedding ring. The one I would enjoy having, anyway.
I saw it on an andrewandcarissa video and had to take a screen shot.
(They are like my freelance filmmaking idols, by the way.)

It's lovely and simple. Just how I like it.

On a completely unrelated note
I was cleaning out my email inbox today and I saw this video my sister emailed me back in February which I never actually watched. Oops.
