things i took/take for granted..

an organized fridge.
every time i open our fridge, stuff falls out.

my sonicare electric toothbrush.
i took my normal toothbrush to college and it just isn't the same.

my mom's ability to keep fresh fruit and vegetables in the house.
i'm really bad at eating things before they get moldy and gross.

i used to be able to eat cookies whenever i wanted. now, cookies aren't easy access. when i have the chance to eat a cookie, i go crazy.

my kitty.

i'm still his favorite. he hangs out with me when i come home on weekends.

we goin' find you

remember when i mentioned that there is a wifi network in this building called slytherin common room? well, there's a new winner in town. a different network showed up on my computer last night. . .

"hide yo kids hide yo wifi"

i love it. i want to find whose network it is and give them some kind of recognition. run and tell that, homeboy. this does not get old.

childhood crushes

my childhood crushes were not real people. real boys were gross. the boys in preschool and kindergarten picked their noses and tried to steal my spot on the reading carpet. in elementary school they smelled weird and played with pokemon cards. they were all too weird.

i crushed on fictional boys. my favorites came from all the old shows i liked to watch when i was little.

and the one that started it all...

i'm not sure why these guys crossed my mind today. but they did. and they still have a special place in my heart.

it's a self portrait and it's a little freaky.
i think it's ok to play with your art tablet instead of playing with your friends sometimes.

you asked for it

a few of you tagged me. so here it is: 1 - when i was three i used to introduce myself by saying "hi, i'm lisa and i'm six." 2 - i love enya. freaking love that crap. she speaks to me. 3 - i can mimic accents pretty well. my janice impression is especially good. 4 - i want to be a pilot when i grow up. but my eyesight isn't good enough. so i'm going to make movies instead. 5 - i love documentaries. even the ones most people fall asleep during in u.s. history. i love all the documentaries. i'm a big nerd. 6 - about 7/10 times, i can listen to the score of a movie and know who composed it just by the sound of it. it's a pretty useless skill. 7 - i remember people's birthdays. if you tell me when your birthday is, i'll remember it.

i watched the royal tenenbaums last night. i loved it. i'm into kind of off-beat movies like that. wes anderson is one of my favorite directors. and the soundtrack is awesome. and i officially want a pet dalmatian mouse. pinterest.

also, when i get my homework done today, i'm going to reward myself by buying brandon flowers' album flamingo. it is rockin and brandon flowers... oh boy. love him. and i got a $10 itunes card this week because i did a survey so it's kind of like getting it for free. yeeyeah.

estaba pensando...lo bien que se siente...tener un bigote...

me encanta este video. es muy chistoso.

i have an oral spanish exam tomorrow.
the main problem with these exams is that it makes the teacher notice all the vocabulary words and grammar technicalities that you forgot and they fail to notice that you understand spanish fluently and actually speak it quite well. i mean, if i can understand that video without the subtitles, what more do i need to know? am i right?

true or false:
jessie loves college.

doing homework all night is no fun.

but my roommate and i...

we complete each other.

dear danny,

i like how you shamelessly belt queen songs in the car, even the high parts. i like when you rub your cheek on mine and ask why my face is so scratchy. i like holding your hand and when you text me in spanish even though you don't know spanish. i like when we play michael jackson just dance and when you lean over to me during movies and say "this is foreshadowing."
you're nice. i like you. happy birthday.

confessions of an introvert

here is a post in contrast to this one: confessions of an extrovert.

an introvert doesn't mind going to work early in the morning or late at night, because that means the front desk people aren't there to greet her.

an introvert likes to sit in an edge seat/against a wall in a classroom, a theatre, etc. so fewer people can sit by her.

an introvert doesn't mind coming home to an empty apartment. there is a strange sense of relief, actually.

an introvert looks forward to going to her classes of 150+ people because she can just chill there without being called on.

an introvert is content to just listen. if she's just sitting there being quiet, she isn't sad or feeling left out. really.

an introvert has probably wondered why she is relieved when she has nothing to do and nowhere to be.

introverts like to have fun. but they need alone time to charge their batteries. introverts are cool. sometimes society makes us feel like being an introvert is the "wrong" way to be. but guess what, it isn't. extroverts like to experience a lot, and introverts like to know a lot about what they experience*. can you imagine a world of only extroverts? madness. extroverts are cool too, but thank goodness we have a mix.

*i think i got that from the introvert advantage.

it was one of these days today:

but to make things better, kylie and i went to j dawgs after work. they have THE best hotdogs. i think i'm ruined. i will be craving a one of their polish dogs every day for the rest of my life.
we also went to spoon it up for some frozen yogurt after. jdawgs and spoon it up are right next door to each other, so it would have been a waste not to get some, right? we didn't want spoon it up to feel bad.

all weekends need to be three days. I need more than a busy saturday and a sunday to recover.

Thursday, October 6, 2011


maybe i'm in such a great mood because i slept in till exactly 11:11 this morning. or because this wintery weather is totally speaking to me. rain rain rain + cold that makes my nose pink. i'm such a winter kid. or maybe it's a good day because i wore my leather jacket today. or because i got a letter in the mail from evan. he is funny. or because i finally saw this with danny last night and remembered that i have a really huge thing for the starks. and for danny. or because my oldest friend/basically brother found out he'll be serving the lord for two years in the land of lionel messi and the tango.
i don't know. it's just a pretty good day today.

ten things

1. our walls look like cottage cheese.
2. cottage cheese looks like our walls.

3. i like to study in the jfsb courtyard because it's the place on campus that looks most like hogwarts.
4. you know how the RA puts all the names on the doors in freshman dorms? we made our own.

5. this jug of strange yellow "juice" sat on our table for a while.
6. the day we made a million crepes.

7. final cut pro's death omen. we call it the color wheel of death.
8. the almond joy shake. i had one today and it was awesome.

9. fall leaves smell like heaven.
10. how brooke likes to study.

ah, muggle weapons

these "how it should have ended" videos are genius. take a gander at my favorite one, if you like.

i liked the inception one a lot, too.

i met a boy.

he was sitting in front of me at the football game on friday.
i thought he was cute as soon as he sat down.
he kept casually glancing back at me.
i smiled at him.
he smiled back.
he glanced back at me throughout the whole first quarter.
then he blew me a kiss.

his mom took him out so they could refill his sippy cup.
he was 3.
but he loves me and that's what counts.
age is just a number.

raise your hand if

raise your hand..

if you have a nasty cold
if people brought you brownies today
if you nearly failed a midterm this week
if you like this song
if you miss that boy a whole lot

my hand is up for all of those.

happy weekend amigos.
