have a holly jolly christmas

am i
looking at pictures
from the last three
instead of studying for finals?
yeah. i am.
it's making me wonder
where my mistletoe headband
is hiding,
and i'm starting to think
i'll dress as a candy cane this year.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

hey thanks good friend.

is it odd that 
these bad boys
are my comfort food?
if ever i feel
on the verge of tears,
a kit-kat fixes that
right up.

"Time really is all we have. And every individual
has an equal portion of it. The trick is to get more
out of what is available to us."
-Gordon B. Hinckley

It's not rare for me
to feel like I have 
so much to do yet
so little time.
That's precisely
why I read this quote
on the regular-
to remind me that
I can't change time, 
but I can change
how i manage it.

song has my heart

i really love this song.
the music video is darling.
actually it's more than darling,
it's dinky
(and dinky is the most complimentary
word in my vocabulary).

Sunday, November 21, 2010

dance. until you just caaaan't.

there are few things
i enjoy more
than a good dance party
(or in friday's case, dg formal).
i may not be the most 
coordinated dancer on the floor
but who's judging? right?
anyway, it's safe to say that
best friends + best date = best night.

Friday, November 12, 2010


this is chloee
but i'd rather call her ruth.
we both love micky d's,
dinky is our lifestyle,
we have the same birthday,
and jimmy j's is our lunch of choice.
needless to say, 
she puts my life in perspective.
we are starting a video blog
so keep on the lookout.
oh and she has a blog.
i love it.

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

hey thanks daddio.

plain and simple,
i got in my car this morning
and my gas tank was full.
my week is made
and i have the best dad
in the world.
it reminded me 
how the small & simple things
sometimes mean the most.

where they eat french fries with forks.

there's the greatest
waffle joint
they sell waffles and fries.
holy cow, are they
 delicious and nutritious.
i don't remember the name.

Monday, November 1, 2010

hello november you.

what better way 
to kick off
then to lunch
at jimmy johns
with two of my best friends?
just saying.
oh and it was nice enough
to dine outside
which was quite a treat.

why do demons and ghouls
get along so well?

because demons
are a ghoul's
best friend.

happy halloween.

why not

there's something
about this picture
that warms my heart.

no other word but lovely

so maybe 
this video only
on my blog,
but that doesn't 
change the fact that
it's my favorite tune
for the time being.

[s]no[w] thank-you.

the snow is beautiful
but it's cramping my style.
it needs to give
fall its chance to shine
for just a few more weeks.
that way i can continue
to crunch the leaves
when i walk on campus.
it doesn't work so well
when they're
wet & soggy.

oh diet coke, you sure are the love of my life.

i have never been
too keen
on rating things
on a scale of 1-10.
that is why i now
rate things
on a scale of
one to diet coke.
it just makes more sense.
i love my diet coke.

sorry school i forgot about you.

   plain and simple,
it was the 
best weekend
in a long, long time.
the hours in the sun,
and at the mall,
and playing tennis,
and laughing so hard,
and eating too much,
and sleeping in
were just what i needed.
needless to say,
arizona has my heart.

drive in

dg's at the drive in is
always a fun event.
nights like this
make me realize
how much fun
delta gamma
adds to my life.

Saturday, October 9, 2010

to my dear friend ingrid

thank you
for having
a song for
every mood,
in my life.
i just think
you're the greatest.

time to fail

my heart skips a beat
when i realize 
i am almost done with school,
yet i have no idea
(no idea)
what i am going to do next.
i think,
why can't it be like when i was little?
if i wanted to take ballet, i would.
if i wanted to play soccer, i would.
if i wanted to be a singer, i would.
and although i failed terribly
at all of these things,
it didn't matter one bit
because i was not afraid of failure.
not only was i not afraid of it,
failure didn't phase me
i had absolutely nothing to lose.
i simply brushed it off
and found a new endeavor.
so now i ask,
why should it be any different now?
maybe grad school is no ballet recital,
and losing a job would be a bit harder
than losing a soccer game,
but if i hadn't failed at those little things as a child,
i never would have discovered what i love.
so there i have it,
i am no longer afraid to fail.
and that little realization
makes the future
a lot less scary,
and a lot more exciting.

oh what a day is today

do you ever
have those days
where you have
about 27 things to do
and it doesn't even phase you?
well that, my friends,
is today in a nutshell.
i know i should be feeling
frazzled and spacey,
but i'm not.
in fact,
i'm quite perfectly content.

turns out 
the christmas themed
songfest routine
caught the judges' fancies.
we won first place.
i was pretty thrilled.
the best way to end 
my last homecoming week
at the U!

Sunday, September 19, 2010

to my best friend jimmy john:

whenever school
 gets hectic,
and tiring,
i just remind myself
that there's nothing
a large diet coke
and a turkey tom
can't fix.

Monday, September 13, 2010

i'm in the mood to blog, but don't have much to blog about.

i love 
polka dots
that's all
for today.

dodgeball with the dg's?
yes please.

dream a little dream

do you have places 
that only exist in your dreams?
last night i dreamt of a mansion on a lake.
it was creepy and cold
and i'd been there before
in a dream i had months ago.
different dream, same place.

oops a daisy

don't get me wrong,
i do love bubblegum.
what i don't love
is when people smack it.
it's a pet peeve of mine.
on that note,
today i was at the library
and it was pretty quiet.
by pretty quiet i mean 
you could probably hear a pen drop
(that is not a typo, i really do mean a pen).
i was at my computer for probably
20 minutes, 
and when i stood up
the fellow across from me
shot me a look,
and by look i mean glare.

then it hit me:
i, the girl who hates gum-smacking
had been smacking my gum.

stairway to [diet coke] heaven

our mcdonalds
diet coke cups,
(collected feb-june).

16 feet
of mouth-watering

meet linus.

chloee and i finally 
got our macbooks tonight!
i am so excited.
i named mine linus
and hers is melinda.
we named them 
because they are our babies.
no joke, i feel like we got 
the deal of the century.
not only did we each get a
free ipod touch and printer,
the guy at the store told us
we are now part of the mac family!

it's the most wonderful time of the year

school starts tomorrow
and i can't wait.
school supply shopping
makes me happier than my birthday does.
in fact, 
i smile at just the thought of it.
i am to school supplies
as a hummingbird is to sugar water.

la tee dah

 it is completely 
out of character
for me to use this word,
but this weekend was
if you could look up
"best in the history of the world"
in the dictionary,
you would most definitely
find a picture of mes amis
{a.k.a. my friends}.

taylor swift's new single

i'd be lying
if i said i loved this song
from the get-go.
i didn't.
but it has most definitely grown on me,
and now i'd be lying 
if i said i wasn't obsessed.
our girl taylor
never ceases to amaze.

a word from the wise

"I don't worry too much about the future, 
and I don't worry too much about the past.
The past is gone, and you can't change, can't correct it.
The future, you can anticipate it,
but you can't necessarily do very much about it.
It is the present you have to deal with.
Reach out for every good opportunity
to do what you ought to do."
-President Gordon B. Hinkley

i love the rain until the worms crawl out.

 unlike most people,
 the sound of
nails on a chalkboard
never makes my skin crawl.
stepping on worms
makes my skin crawl.

go bananas.

today at work
a woman came through my line
and bought some bananas.
when i asked if she wanted them in a bag
her eyes opened wide and she smiled.
"why no, i don't need a bag,
i guess i can take them just like that!
yes, i will take them just like that."

it isn't uncommon 
that customers go without a bag,
but this woman acted like it was the most
liberating thing
she'd done in awhile,
and it really made my day.

good day sunshine

i know that i am
very happy
when i have to go to work
for 8 hours,
yet i'm still in a good mood.
really though,
do you ever have those days
when you feel like
nothing can bring you down?

summer school

my homework today
just might be
the death of me.
take me back to

it is no secret that i don't like cheese

in my opinion,
the words 
squeaky and cheese
should never be used together.

goodbye beach, hello jimmy johns

although i am going home
whiter than i came
(thank you overcast skies),
i loved being by the sea.
i'd be lying if i said 
i wasn't a little excited to leave
considering there is
a turkey tom at home
with my name on it.

pink straws

is anyone else
the pink straws at mcdonalds
as much as i am?
they do crack
a bit easier
than the regular ones,
but to that i say
it's worth it.
