I’m usually a fairly easy person to get along with…

Screen shot 2013-10-24 at 5.46.23 PM

but I have little to no tolerance for people who deliberately and casually break laws/ rules, particularly the BYU Honor Code (including, but not limited to, modesty and curfew regulations).

I don’t care if you don’t agree with it, YOU SIGNED IT!

If you don’t want to live by it, get out and give your spot to one of the thousands who wish they could have gone to school here!

I’m NOT looking to get offended, I know we are all human, but people who think they are too good to obey that stuff make me fume.

Brigham Young didn’t put up with a lot of crap.

Neither did my grandfather Ernest.

And neither do I.

OBEY THE (Brigham Young University) RULES, PEOPLE.

You can maintain your individuality/ identity/ personality

while still doing this!

“I have been asked what I mean by ‘word of honor.’ I will tell you:  Place me behind prison walls—walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground—there is a possibility that in some way or another I might be able to escape; but stand me on the floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No, never! I’d die first.”

FRIENDS!

1.  What rules, laws, statutes, or codes have YOU committed to honor?

2.  How far would you go to defend your honor and personal integrity?

3.  How can you be even better committed to keeping your word?

PS.  I know that sometimes even good people make mistakes and unfortunately may even break the Honor Code.  I strongly believe in repentance/change in these cases.  Read here for a bit more about this.

To err is human;

to forgive, divine.

*I  like that first video A LOT (although the title is misleading).  Also, another BYU athlete was unfortunately involved with a recent infraction of the Honor Code.  Similar to Mr. Davies, this athlete is making amends, both spiritually and academically.  Read a smashing article about him here.

I’ll drink to that (my glass is empty so fill it up with something…non-alcoholic please!) AND make a toast to my readers!  Thank you so, so, SO much.  And believe it or not, I still have lots to write about.  Live your own lives and tell your own experiences, of course, but still mosey on over when you can, okay?

Oh, and I copied Rihanna’s look once upon a time, remember?

P.S.  All those numbers add up to just over 5,000.  I promise.  And no, I didn’t add them myself.  And no I didn’t keep clicking my stats button waiting to get to that magic landmark.  🙂

Paparazzi won’t have nothin’ on me!

The paparazzi can be cruel.

They have the ability to catch celebs at their worst and share it with the world.

But when it comes to me, I’m not too worried.  I don’t smoke, drink, or fool around.  You ain’t gonna catch me stumbling out of a club at 3 am.  And I’m not into the whole anger/violence thing/profanity, either.  Plus, I already post worse pictures of myself than any photographer could ever catch.

A legit musician put gas in my car AND bought me a drink! Non-alcoholic of course.

True story.  Probz should have actually cleaned myself up a little, huh? Oh well.  Ya’ll know I’m beautiful, even if not everyday.  But I digress.   This kid Oba is the real deal.

And boy can break it DOWN!

This stuff is good enough to be on the radio.  Too good.  Puts Chris Brown and Jason DeRulo to shame.  This song is another literary gem, teachers.  Can you believe this kid is giving up music for 2 years to go on an LDS mission?  Now THAT’S dedication.  You know homeboy will be winning Grammys in no time when he gets back.  Oba if you ask really nice, I GUESS I’ll be your date although it’s such a terrible bother to get a pretty dress and have  your makeup and hair all done up and stuff….. 🙂

Gender confusion?

And he liked some of my Natasha mash-up ideas.  DON’T HATE THAT!

#those drinks are “Arizona” brand, but they’re not tea!  Promise!

#Shaq is doing this now I guess…

It was YOUR fault the drunk driver hit you because you were on the road when he was…

Hear how ridiculous that sounds?

Well, it’s pretty much the same as “if she hadn’t been wearing that/alone at night/flirty/drunk, she wouldn’t have gotten into any trouble.  She was asking for it.”

#BLAMING THE WRONG PERSON!

#victim blaming makes me fume…

NO humor in this post..  Usually a lighthearted blog, but there is NOTHING funny about abuse/assault/rape…

#Elizabeth Smart is my hero

#gender-issues

#still use your wits but if anything happens its NOT YOUR FAULT!

#first heard of the idea of “rape culture” at the Charlotte Gilman literary conference

(where I presented my piece on “The Yellow Wallpaper”)

MORE TO COME ON THIS ISSUE!
