Oh hi... I'm back

I've been off the grid recently...kind of deciding between using this blog or my one I had to use for a class last semester... but unless something crazy happens, I think I will be sticking to this one...
(if you want to see what I wrote last semester you may click here)
So here I am Spring term almost done and getting ready for the adventures that Summer holds.

Also, my siblings and I have a new blog right HERE
Give it a follow...or just follow up every once and awhile... trust me you'll be glad you did.

That's all for now lovelies.

Hasta la proxima

new begginings

so here I am again at BYU, second day, but I'm feeling good.

you can tell it's going to be a good year when you get along with your roommates, and when your hardest class (so far) seems to be Doctrine and Covenants or maybe American Heritage.
I am truly excited to start this new chapter in my life, the mission has prepared me for all that is ahead and I can't wait.

also, I will be starting a new section called "You can hear us down the hall." Talking about my room, and all the silly things we say, and the much laughter everyone can hear that comes from it.

adios!

Who's the baddest of them all?

Hello there!
So, today while driving to and from my post surgery appointment the song "Counting Stars" by OneRepublic came on the radio and while listening I remembered the song my sister had introduced me to, the parody "Counting Scars" by the Disney Villains.
If you have never seen it, here it is:


Nice huh?
Catchy tune.
Catchy words.
I enjoy it.

However, ever since the first time Megan showed it to me, I've had a problem with it.
Is Scar really the "baddest" Disney Villains there is? I don't think so.

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you:

oh! ouch!

I believe Gaston from "Beauty and the Beast" is the scariest Disney Villain there is, here's why:

He is liked by everyone.

He's selfish. 

He's prideful. 
(And he acts on both his pride and his lust.)

He is EXTREMELY vain. 
(♪you're so vain, you probably think Belle should like you, YOU'RE SO VAIN! ♪)

He is "totally prime-evil"

He's an idiot, and he is STILL liked by everyone.

People follow him. Now, people follow Scar too, BUT the difference is that when Scar loses, when his followers see that he is wrong, they turn on him.
Gaston is different when Belle shows her father isn't crazy, that The Beast is real, they aren't like "Gaston! Give it up! They were right! Let's go back and eat the same old bread and rolls that we always do."

Nope.

Instead, they keep following him, proving that "50 french-men [CAN] be wrong."
Isn't that terrifying? Even though he's wrong they keep following him. Yikes! *shutter* That is why I think Gaston is the baddest of them all, he has no powers, he has no kingdoms, he is a man. But he is the complete "natural man" and that is why he is so scary.

Granted everyone has their opinion, but this is why I have a blog, to state mine, but if anyone has any thoughts feel free to share.

Cuz we'll always be cougars

Okay, okay, I'm sure half the world has already seen all of these videos, but in light that ROC passes went on sell today and I'll be heading back to BYU (and BYU sporting events) in like three weeks (!!!!!) I have decided to share these uplifting Divine Comedy Music Videos:

Fail:


Good:


and last of all (of those I wanted to post...) Cougars:


I may or may not be completely and utterly excited to return to Provo.
Okay you got me. I am BEYOND excited. At this point on instagram I would use #hashtags... and if I did it would look like this:

#byu
#immacougar
#iamsoexcitedtogobackilovebyusomuch
#butimkindascaredofschoolsinceivemisseditforabout2yearsnow

When I collect my ROC pass in these next few days there will be photos of me being overwhelmed with joy. Be prepared.

Pin-Mania

So for those of you who might not know I have been out of commission this past week recovering from back surgery.
So since I have to either be standing or laying down for most of the time I have been enjoying  watching movies, having Sarah read books to me (it's just more fun that way,) and well... pinning, you know...on Pinterest.
I have decided that I enjoy it way to much, I probably have about 4 people's weddings planned (not mine though, that won't be happening anytime soon,) I have about 1,000 recipes that I will most likely never make, and loads of places that I would love to visit but by no means will I ever get there.
On the other hand, I now have many more jokes to laugh at, secrets to Disney, and a fair number of "hacks" to use for my life.
Brilliant huh?
I suppose it does have an upside...if any of you need a wedding planner, I've got the whole thing in my plam.

my mom could outwit Dr. Seuss anyday



We all know him, don't we? The master of rhymes, a man who probably started "the rap" idea of making up your own words. But it doesn't compare, none of it to what my mom did this past week....


STORY TIME!!!!

So the other day...being yesterday my mother and I were walking through Walmart as mothers and daughters often do and I was telling her the woes of my life....just one, actually...I just don't understand sometimes.

ANYWAYS

my mother being the genius that she is said "You should've said..."
and started making as many rhymes to the word "great" as possible.
date, meditate, late, etc. it was quite the moment.
Sadly, with my lack of English since I dunno... 20 months ago, I can't remember the full poem, but with a few brightly colored pictures I'm sure she could go far.

It's friday...



did a song just come to mind? I hope not, that would've been awful.

but if so here is another song to get it off your mind:







What says Friday better then a bunch of singing puppets?

okay...probably lots of things... but today it's just singing puppets.


Happy Friday.
