Fake cigarettes make you look like an idiot!

ImageImage

Truly, they do It’s one of the dumbest trends I’ve seen among college-aged Mormons.  Whether it’s Halloween or some poetry slam, or whatever the case may be.  They look it looks sexy and glamorous and cool and unique, but they really just look pretentious and pathetic.

I once threw a party, and some loser showed up with a fake cig hangin’ outta his mouth.  Guess how long he lasted before I kicked him out?  It was less than 2 minutes.

I realize I’m bein’ a bit harsh, but that’s never stopped me before. 🙂

(But I do like this song):

Alrighty, back to the main point:

Fake cigarettes

make you look like an idiot!

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?

Screen shot 2013-10-24 at 6.14.44 PM

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.

The answer, my friend…

 is blowing in the wind!

~Bob Dylan

Dear friends,

Although I love Bobby (he was named after the British poet Dylan Thomas!), I proclaim that the answers to life’s questions are in actuality NOT blowing in the wind; they instead come from righteous men and women who are inspired of God!  I invite you to watch the next session or two of LDS General Conference.  Click here para más información.

Hope you take me up on that offer.  But if not, I guess we can still be friends…

Image

And although I ADORE Kacey Musgraves,

I ain’t just blowin’ smoke…

(figuratively or literally…)

I’m tell you the answer(s), my friend(s)

*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.

2)  How can you make sure that you stay in control of your passions so that you can reach your dreams?

One website tops it all!

I use a lot of different websites and sources for research, development, entertainment, teaching, communication and of course for inspiration and reference for this blog.  But one specific URL address stands out from all the rest…

this video is about 2x the length I usually do, but still watch it, okay? 🙂

Oh, and here’s just a little outtake:

Now, go visit that website I mentioned…

Love always, Ms. Katherine

Pay Day!

Explore More Issues Here:

1)  Line of Propriety

2)  Sunburn stuff

3)  Bad hair day means good writing day!

4)  Bragging?  Guilty.  YOU WOULD TOO!

Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….

Lyrics here. 

The song is VERY interesting.  The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING).  You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him.  Sad.

Have done my own version of “Who Says.”  And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…

But Back to the Benjamins:

Laughing all the way to the bank…

PS.  The check wasn’t for a ton.  And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.

Abomination of Desolation unto Katherine

ImageA semicolon is almost as bad as having only having half your large intestine. 

(don’t miss that one, please!)

🙂

But the Word of Wisdom counsels to eat meat sparingly; I suppose I can use semi-colons sparingly as well, although they are way more vegetarian anyways.

PS.  My title comes from this scripture of obscurity (at least to me!).

PPS: Yes, I used a semicolon in this post…

Nope, just a play on words to make you read this post.  Another National Enquirer tactic I employed there.  Thunderbolt of blasphemy?  I think I’m alright…

Neil, just so you know, the invitation to come see me still stands tall…

When a comedian spoofs a controversial topic, makes fun of himself, doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings, AND is hilarious.

That’s the sweet spot right there, ya’ll.

PS.  He ended up marrying that girl in the pink coat.  Virgin drinks all around!

PPS.  I couldn’t find Ryan Stone’s website, but here’s his youtube channel.

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?

Read Lyrics Here: 

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!

Tonight I ate coffee ice cream,

and I’m going to the temple this week 🙂

I may be a sloth, but I ain’t no slothful servant, ya’ll!

Yes I’d be okay with President Monson reading this.  And yes, I do also enjoy coffee lip-balm.

Especially not literally….

If 2 people are getting to know/courting/dating, whatever you wanna call it, that’s awesome.  But once the kiss comes, whole new game plan.  I mean, I don’t need to have a ring or anything.  But here’s what:

Oh, and the following video is for a certain someone who just may have inspired this post.  I am NOT angry, I am NOT vindicative, but I AM super good with the wordplay and just had to do an anonymous shout-out.  I don’t rat anyone out, but friend just COUNT (literally!) how many references I make:

How many did you find (it’s over 10…)?  Oh, the travesty…
