batch #6 - the last batch of questions

::what is your advice for achieving success in life::
can someone tell me the answer to this!?
i worry a lot about the future. i have really big dreams as far as my career goes, and there are times when it seems unrealistic and i get really down on myself. BUT i don't need to do that because it doesn't really matter where i end up, i just want to be married and make awesome things, like films and babies. they don't even have to be great films. but if i'm making stuff and hanging out with my husband and kiddos, i'll be happy. and if i'm happy, i'll consider myself a success.

::what is your favorite vacation spot?::
i like any vacation spot. because it means i'm on vacation! i super love going to the east coast. the atlantic ocean is warm. ask me the same question in 4 months, though, and i might say england, france, germany, austria, italy, or greece (humblebrag... sorry about it).

::what is the best day of your life thus far?::
i don't often remember entire days, but i remember moments. and some of my favorite moments have been when i'm hanging out with my family. i was blessed with two incredible parents and four hot sisters, and being with them are usually my favorite moments. whether that be all of us crying together at the wizarding world of harry potter, or us just cracking jokes at the dinner table.

::if nothing about time and space were an option, what would your perfect day consist of?::
waking up to NO ALARM, 60 degree weather, hanging out with people i love, eating A TON of good food, staying up really late.

::i want to know your favorite thing about growing up in the grove!::
the grove being pleasant grove, utah. i have lived in utah county my whole life, and haven't had much to complain about. i can hike to waterfalls from my house, i live 20 minutes from a ski resort, and 20 minutes from a lake in the other direction. i've gotten to know so many great people in utah county, i'm comfortable here, and i'm lucky that it's in a place i consider really beautiful.

::if you could relive one moment from your past, what would it be?::
once i ate the best pork barbacoa salad from cafe rio ever, and i'd super like to relive that moment right now. but more seriously, i'd really like to go back to the summers when i was between the ages 4-8.

::who are your role models?::
first and foremost, my parents. they are awesome, and if i can get anywhere close to their level of parenting, my kids will turn out pretty well.
second, my film professors. i look up to all of them so much. i love being in a department where the professors actually know the students by name and are invested in their lives. taking their classes really has made me a better, smarter person. (and i have this dream of being on the film faculty at byu because all of them make it look like the best job in the world).
tina fey and amy poehler. smirk at that if you want. but they are amazing and have done so much for women, and especially for women in comedy. they know what's up.
jared and jerusha hess. they... kind of live what my ideal life would be. and they are nice, hilarious people. i know because i met them last week.

::what is the best advice you've ever received?::
"You did not come into the world to fail. You came into the world to succeed. You have accomplished much so far. It is only the beginning. As you move forward on the trail of life, keep the banner of faith in self ever before you. You may not be a genius. You may not be exceptionally smart. But you can be good, and you can try. And you will be amazed at what might happen when in faith you take a step forward." -Gordon B. Hinckley

and that is the end of the questions! that was fun, you guys! for me at least.
feel free to ask questions whenever, this isn't a one time deal.

as always,
thanks for reading this blog and for being my friend.
always remember:
you're good enough, you're smart enough, and doggone it, people like you.
