I’m glad you like my blog, but I DON’T want you glued to your seats…

Figuratively or literally.

I’ve had people email/FB/text me saying how much they appreciate my blog.  And I appreciate that YOU appreciate it.  It feels good to have readers, especially if I’m gonna get that Webby, BUUUUUT, remember that your story is more important than mine.  Read my blog when you’re on your computer or Iphone or whatever, but don’t forget to LIVE YOUR LIFE!

It’s incredible….

Just found this video from about 3 years ago.  Watching it was fun.  And funny.  And painful (is there ANYONE who likes his/her own speaking voice?)  But what’s incredible is how much I see myself and all my core beliefs again.  Humor, beauty, kindness, expression, creativity, Christ, understanding.  Not bad.  Even if it wasn’t one of my better hair days 🙂  Now I wanna go find me an apricot!

Sometimes writing a blog like this can take a toll on your hygiene,

He may be angry, obscene, and even hateful at times….

but there is no denying that Eminem has incredible talent, especially when it comes to wordplay.  He also does a pretty good job articulating his beliefs about words and language to Anderson Cooper.  This clip is intelligent and fascinating.  Check it!

Teachers, take note (do I say that too much?)!

The Law of Thermodynamics

The entropy of my bedroom…

is always increasing!

#not proud of it, but gotta laugh so I don’t cry, know what I mean?)

#not usually this bad, just wanted to exaggerate for artistic purposes (it was moving day a few years ago)

*Famous (and weirdo) American writer Thomas Pynchon has a relatively renowned short story called “Entropy” dealing with slightly related themes, but in a less funny and more disillusioning way.  Like, we close ourselves off from the world cuz it’s so bad.  Sad.  Will write about that piece eventually…

#hey boys, if we fall in love I promise I will remedy this bedroom situation STAT and be your perfect cookie-cutter Mormon housewife!  I’ll sweep the floor if you sweep this girl off her feet.

I will sweep, sweep, sweep you off your feet…

Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and you remember how you felt at the time, and it wasn’t necessarily what showed?

Screen shot 2013-07-31 at 3.28.30 AM

This is one of those pictures.  On the outside I just look like  a girl with high cheekbones, a great sense of color, and someone who could sport a red lip with confidence and class.  But on the inside, I was hurting pretty badly.  Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.  Even beautiful people.  Be kind.

 

Sometimes beauty isn’t recognized

when it contrasts with what you feel inside.
