My name is Emmie




so today, i had an epiphany. I blog all the time, and yet I've never actually introduced myself to the blogging world. so (even though I've posted in the past three days in a row and been blogging since September) I'm formally introducing myself.

Hello! My name is Emmie Brown! My real name's actually Emmari. I live in Utah. Go to Jr. High. SBO President there actually. That is the best part of my school experience. it makes my day every day in student gov.

i love to create things. i love when people ask me where i got a certain thing and i proudly say, "I MADE it!" I love my glue gun (still lost) and sewing machine. I'm an honors student, and i have a large vocabulary. I never use text talk. EVER. it drives me insane. i am too lazy to capitalize most of the time.

i love my friends. i have lots of them, which is nice, but it's kinda lonely sometimes. just because i'm not extremely close to just one person. it's a good thing, and a new experience.

I love music. I hate mainstream crap. hate it. I like indie, rock and (sometimes) pop. acoustic stuff is my favorite. I have a lot of favorite bands (TDCC, Boyce Avenue, Onerepublic, Ingrid Michaelson, Keane, Jack Johnson, She and Him, Modest Mouse and many many many many more. I also like Pandora.com. a lot.

I love reading. I love TV. I love video games. I love good stories in general. Reading is my favorite though. I have so many books.

Which brings me to the thing i love most. Harry potter. i have a whole post dedicated to that though, so go read it.

I love to write. I love pinterest. I love people. any kind of person. I'd describe myself as a people person. I like to listen and be friends with everyone. there is no one in this world that i hate. people that annoy me, yes. but i do not hate.

i am mormon and proud of it.

i blog stalk people all the time. it gets kinda creepy. i also facebook stalk too. i just find people really interesting. i want to go into psychology when i grow up. i also want to be a mommy and have a darling husband that is really attractive.

i love boys. really. i love romantic comedies, romantic books, pictures, anything. but most boys think i'm spazzy and like those calmer girls.

i am stubborn. i am kind of a crybaby. i am not very flexible (as in scheduling events and such). i am sensitive. this can be good and bad. i am distracted a lot and can't pay attention for very long. i sometimes compare myself to others even though this is the worst possible thing anyone can do to themselves. I tease my siblings constantly.

I have two sides to me. one side is the crazy side that all my friends see. That one is spazzy and crazy and weird. i like it. I have a serious side too.

i love the internet. i love comfy socks. i love hugs. i love modge podge and hot glue. i love wonderful people. i love learning. i love to laugh.

i don't care what people think of me. I am confident, but I try not to be cocky. I love animals. My mom, aunt and grandma are all my role models. I love my daddy. I love my two brothers and my sister more than i can express. i love food. I am underweight and i get teased about it all the time (yeah, i know. it's weird)

I love and relish life. I am Emmie. Take me or leave me as I am. I'm not changing for anything. I am original.

yep. it's Christmas.

IT'S CHRISTMAS! IT'S CHRISTMAS! MAY I SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS? IT'S CHRISTMAS!

I NEED TO TAKE OFF CAPS LOCK BUT I'M JUST TO DARN EXCITED!


okay. i am calm. but i just love christmas more than anything. it makes me happy and full of joy and candy. and when the house is trashed from presents and wrapping paper.

So here's how the day went. i woke up at six AM to my brothers screaming at me. i ignored them and went back to sleep for ten minutes. then Camden screeched, "WE'RE WAITING FOR YOU EMMIE!"

so i ran upstairs and laid down on the floor. and mom told me to go look at my stocking. and guess what was in it? yep. sparkly red rainboots. which is cruel, because my mom told me that i was not getting rainboots or any surprises this year, that i picked out all my presents. and i BELIEVED her!

so i freaked out and put em on because they were that cute. then it was the usual madness. then i went to church, all in my new stuff. and the YW sang and a bunch of other people for Sacrament. and it was really really good.

and then we got home, played our new kinect for a while and went to Grandmas. presents, breakfast, craziness. and we've been home since two and i took a nap and played with my new makeup and tried to put on fake eyelashes (FAIL)

oh, and just to let you know, i got two pairs of rainboots, oxfords, lots and lots of socks (yahoo!), makeup, bobby pins, sweaters, a pretty fancy black dress, red pants, fifty bucks, skirts, a cute shirt, Inception, Blind Side, candy, and us kids got a new computer and a xbox 360 with kinect and a few games.

best christmas haul EVER.

so merry christmas you grand readers!

lazzzzzzzzy crafting.

scrubbing bathroom floors on christmas eve? 

bring it.

really though, this should be illegal. I'm kinda ditching out on everyone downstairs... those cute little worker bees.

so, here's the deal. last night i couldn't sleep. at all. too much diet coke (whoever gave my mother that whole blessed two liter, i love you) and sugar. and i sat around all day yesterday. so i crafted.

i made a necklace, and attached ribbon to a pearl necklace i have, and made a bracelet, and made two headbands (one was on accident). i fell freaking accomplished, but i'm exhausted.

and i discovered something, my glue gun (Old Bessie) is MISSING. i almost cried. my little pink friend is gone. she's probably cold, and alone and scared. i had to use TACKY GLUE last night. that is totally, not okay. i need my hot glue! and my sewing machine is at Desi's! 

what is a lazy crafter to do?

i really need to find my glue gun though, or i might die of sorrow.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Sing a song for the glorious season!

 actually, it's frozen outside. no snow. and this means that Utahns will not have a white christmas. which sucks.

but, just for a holly joliday update:

this christmas season has been grand, but EXTREMELY busy. we've been redoing our basement. the whole thing. kitchen down there, living room, bathroom, my room, playroom, boys room, laundry room. it's complete chaos down there and my new room is a disaster because i don't have a dresser or vanity. and i can't use the bathroom down there because there's no water on!

but it's also been one of the most eventful of my life. we've been doing all the traditions, and i've actually made a lot of new friends. and it's been a blast full of laughs and fun. and little christmas presents:)

and another bad thing: i've been adding to my christmas list every day. it's really random and it doesn't make sense to anyone but me. and i haven't shopped for my siblings yet. I'm such a bad person...

and I have SO MUCH to do. it's freaking me out! i have to memorize my english thing, do biology homework, shop, clean my room, put a christmas package together for Nikita, make presents for my YW leaders, give other people their presents, make cookies, paint, and a million other things.

ahhhhhhh!

'


but don't let my Scrooge-ness let you down. I'm still happy. i love being busy, it just catches up to me super fast. I'm still in a happy holiday mood. I listen to christmas music while i do everything. i'm really having a happy holidays.



but before i tell you my random christmas list, i have to tell you a funny story.

last night, i was at Carli's with melany. and we were watching the greatest youtube video ever. and it was funny, because Carli was laughing, i couldn't breathe and Melany was screaming, "TURN IT OFF! TURN IT OFF!"


now for the list:

a costco little mirror thing

itunes gift cards

books

amazon gift cards

rainboots

dresses

socks

tights

shirts

skirts

more socks

more itunes

new case for my iphone

umbrella

hats

home improvement relaxes me

it's the truth.

I've been painting my new room since I got home from school. My hands are COVERED with paint. So are my feet. And I just turn on my Two Door Cinema Club (Ricky got me hooked) Pandora station and paint. It makes me feel so good.

(by the way, my new room is pink. and it's gonna be freaking cute)

so, today was a pretty good day. I woke up early, and headed off to school in my plaid jammies. then, me and the rest of the officers hassled people for money. It was a pretty big success. (Just to let you all know, we made around $550 for Africa. Not our ideal goal, but we're still pretty proud). and then I went to all my classes, bombed my geography test, watched a cute movie in seminary, took a test in math, and then came choir.

yesterday we went on the tour, so we didn't get to see the bullying assembly. (and the tour was very fun. I saw an old couple holding hands at a nursing home and i almost died. cutest thing ever) and so we had it in our class today. and it was so awkward, but the lady was hilarious. seriously. I would give examples, but they would make you feel awkward. not me. YOU.

and then I had english, and then LUNCH.

greatest thing ever. me and Annie hassled people for money, Ricky donated a penny, and I got a green airhead:)

and then biology (good times with Chloe and Jonas) and finally, STUDENT GOV!!!

this is where the greatest thing ever happened. So, we have to take out recycling for the teachers, and Claire got a clear bucket. we were taking it back inside, and she got cold so she put it on her head and walked around. and then.... she ran into a pole.


i fell on the ground laughing.

so today was a grand day. I got to wake up at seven twenty and still get out the door on time! And something eventful happened in every class.


first: Kaitlyn finally realized I'm a ginger (sort of. I blush like crazy, but my hair's not THAT red)

second: we watched a video with cute little old people in it.

third: we moved seats, i sit alone and the kids around me think I'm a freak. but everyone gave Kaitlyn crap about not knowing I was a ginger.. silly child.

fourth: choreography. I always laugh at the guys awkwardly trying to be santa while holding their bellies and moving around.

fifth: Mark was a jerk. For all of you who do not know (and didn't read about where I blush) I blush. A LOT. and mark takes advantage of me and always says randomly,

"Emmie, your face is as red as a tomato."

and it gets me every time! EVERY TIME! and it's mean. he needs to stop, that dang boy. I'll show him. I'll find something embarrassing about him and BLOG about it. yeah...

sixth: Chloe called me anorexic and Jonas laughed at me. So I called Chloe stupid and Decaire gave me that "death glare." so I shut up and tried to shove her.

seventh: Kate fell asleep on me. Yes. I am not lying. I was rubbing her back and she was out in five minutes. I wanted to draw on her face, but I'm too nice to do that:)

and that was my day. Grand.

try not to drown in my weirdness.

that's right folks! I'm blogging! on a saturday night! i need a life!

I am not even kidding you. I didn't do anything last night either. The most exciting thing I did today was put on an ugly sweater that was the itchiest thing of my life. it had llamas on it. don't worry, you'll get a picture soon.

but seriously. what is wrong with me? last night, i crafted! I didn't hang out or do anything! My best friend is my little pink hot glue gun. I love that little guy. except I think it should be a girl glue gun... it's name shall be Old Bessie. The glue gun. And my sewing machine shall be named Al. Al the sewing machine and Bessie the glue gun. we've been through a lot together.

I'm seriously feeling like a creep. I'm on facebook, stalking people that do have lives. I'm sorry if all of you get a lot of notifications from me, don't be creeped out.

there are perks for not doing anything:

READING!

PINTEREST!

STALKING OTHER PEOPLE'S BLOGS!

MORE PINTEREST!

NAPS!

and that's it. but the blog I've been stalking today was "You seriously made that?!" she cracks me up. My favorite post is when she talks about herself and her weirdness, and admits that one of her fears is running over a cardboard box in the middle of the street that has a baby in it. I am not kidding.

I think we'd get along just grandly with our weirdness. I like her.

here's a link, if you want to laugh and make cute stuff: http://youseriouslymadethat.blogspot.com/

Oh, I also like her video of Double Dream hands. It made me pee my pants a little.


But I have a funny story! Every time either of my parents asks me to do something, I just say OK and then zone out and do whatever I was doing. Then they go away and leave me alone, and usually forget about what they told me to do. It works every time (example, dad just told me to get off the laptop and go to bed. OK. he goes back to his room and I think he's asleep).

this is getting random, and i hear my daddy stirring in the room next to me, so I'll go to bed.

weird

I like blogging. I'm a girl that is obsessed with her blog instead of Robert Pattinson (ew). I'm considered really weird. I know I am, I talk about anything that pops into my head, and I'm a spaz. A lot of people have told me, and I've seen the looks everyone gives me at school. Especially when me and Annie do yoga in the commons at lunch. So, since I have NO homework (on a Thursday night. Brownie points!) and I'm bored to death, I'm blogging and singing out loud to my She and Him Pandora station.

So here's the deal, I'm going to write a list of the weirdest things I've ever done that I can remember. If I were you, I'd be ready to be entertained.

Here we go!

(in no particular order)


1. Dressing up in a Utes snuggie and making music videos with Annie to Justin Bieber songs. They're even on Facebook. Go watch em.


2. Making a fort with Annie and Erica in my room that covered every space possible.


3. Had Chinese food wars with Mark.


4. Getting dragged by Mark at BJH and grabbing the cheerleaders ankles. Lots of dirty looks on this one.


5. Me and Melany blowing kisses and Chaz seeing us and us laughing our heads off.


6. Making Star Wars spaceship noises in the hall.


7. made a comb out of a ruler, toothpicks and beads.


8. breaking into Reagan's house with Annie and Erica.


9. playing a spy game in Smiths and getting kicked out.


10. Riding that merry-go-ride thingy outside of Rite Aid and getting weird looks from old ladies.


11. making a hippy for Roman.


12. posing with a Tuna can


13. making my unicorn pillow pet talk to annie. also a video on facebook.


14. Mr. Rollins fifth period class. everything in their was weird.


15. painted nail polish on my face because I couldn't find paint.


16. wearing sombreros and pretending to cross the border with annie.


17. playing house and salesman at smiths


18. dressing up in all of annie's dress ups


19. fingerpainting with pudding

Harry Potter

Okay. so everyone that knows me knows that I love Harry Potter. I love it more than words.

and this weekend, I've just rekindled my love for Harry Potter. Because of the ABC family marathon, and pinterest. I've started to read the series again for... I think it's the seventh time? I don't keep track. I love it though.

I love the characters. Even though they might not be "real" to you, they're real to me. No, I can't email Harry or Hermonie, but they're real in my heart. All of the characters are real. They're all my friends and I love them all. They're all a part of me. I love the story, the intricate, amazing, magical story. Rowling is a genius. It's the best good vs evil story ever (Star Wars being a close second). I love the books, I love the music, I love the filming, I love the acting, I love the director. There is not one thing I don't like about the harry potter anything. Everything is completely magical.

Harry Potter is my childhood. I loved the books when I was little, I pretended to have magical powers. I even pretended that my neighbor was a Death Eater. I did all my book reports on Harry Potter. And most people say that because all the books and movies are out that it's over. But it's never over.

even though there's no more movies to look forward to, it's not over. It lives on in my heart and in everyone else. You have to live under a rock to have never heard of it. It's affected all of us. And because of that, it's going to live on for forever. I plan on being a cute little mommy reading Harry Potter out loud to my little kidlings. And I'll read it again, and again and again. And it will never die in my heart.

to feel what I'm feeling right now, watch this. I've watched it eleven times and I cry every time. It's so emotional: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWKEXvtsWRE

these are quotes about Harry Potter I've found:

The last and possibly greatest message JKR left us...
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"
Just cause it's 'fiction' doesn't mean that it can't be real to us. A great story needs a great storyteller; thanks for it all, Jo.

Harry Potter is my life. McGonagall has Transfigured all my sadness into a happy thought. Luna is my source of energy. Neville is my role model. Ron is the root of my smile. Hermione is the girl who solves every problem in my life. Snape reminds me to never be a coward. Harry is the person who tells me, no matter how horrible life is, we have to keep Marching On.
Forever a Potterhead.

and that's all I want to look up:)

i know i get worked up about this, but I don't care. I love it and if you think I'm a freak, go ahead. Because while you're sitting there judging, I'll be having the time of my life with everything that has to do with the most magical book/movie series ever.

keep marchin' on Harry Potter.

Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore.

Poor Utah Valley. We've been havin' some wind up in here lately. Like, 100 MPH wind. I counted 29 pinetrees in the road on thursday. And school was optional, so I went to Desi's for the day. We first had to book it outside without shoes for firewood (no power. all day). Then we built a fire and complained about not having google/pinterest. So then we grabbed an encyclopedia and warmed our feet! We learned how to do CPR, how to crochet and much more. So resourceful.
        and then we were upstairs wrapping blankets around us, because it was getting very very cold. and then we made crafts out of super glue! And because we had Amy's kids and my siblings were there. so we dropped them off, and headed off to Festival of Trees. Which was very amazing and grand and warm. POWER! My favorite tree was the UP tree. It gave me very much happiness. And It got me into the Christmas spirit. So then after spending a few hours there (and seeing a gingerbread house that looked exactly like the Weasley's Burrow. JOY) we left.
          and the power STILL wasn't on! but while we were driving to the hotel we were gonna stay at, Spencer called and said it was on! so we drove home and went to bed in our cold houses!

FRIDAY:
No school. It was canceled and it was grand. But I had to babysit my grouchy siblings which was no fun. And mom came back right when I was leaving to help Amy at Bella's party. So me and Lisie went and I did little children's hair and nails. then I came home and did nothing but watch Anne of Green Gables the rest of the day.

and now today I'm at home watching the rest of my family rehearse for the Christmas shindig at the church tonight. and I'm playing with my dear Kai today too. And i have to sing Silver Bells tonight and we haven't even practiced it! WHO IS IN CHARGE!?

so that was my "Utah Hurricane" weekend. It was pretty great. even thought Bountiful still looks like a War Zone, and the wind hasn't stopped, and the Barkers pine trees might fall on our house. That would be a fun Christmas.

drunk birds.

so today was a fun day. i woke up from a dream where I saw Jake at the zoo standing in the middle of an anthill telling me it was his service project. when i informed him of this he laughed and now whenever he sees me he pretends he's standing in an anthill screaming, "this is my service project!" fun stuff. and then school was fun. I screamed out the answer in math and bro mconkie told lame puns. joy.

but the best part was the sports!

as all the people in my gym classes know, i am no good at sports. not even a little bit. i have the coordination of a drunk duck with size 19 in mens shoes (flippers?).

but i loooooooove watching sports!

and usually I don't pay attention to basketball games that I must attend. I do homework, talk to Jessie, that sorta stuff. but today, after I finished my biology lab with Addy and Annie (poor, poor cripple Annie) i went down to the game to talk to Jessie.
     I got there in the middle of third quarter when we were winning by one. and then, we were losing by one, then tied, winning, losing. it was a vicious cycle. and then we were tied, with five seconds left. I ran over to reagan and we screamed,

"WE NEED A MIRACLE! PLEASE, WE NEED A MIRACLE!"

and then after a time out, Austin Parkinson shot for a three pointer. Bountiful Jr screamed and we held our breaths (breath? whatever) and he made it! in the last second! it was pure joy and I screamed my face off. my throat hurts really bad now but it was totally worth it.


  1. this is what me and Reagan and Jessie looked like today when screaming during the game.

All I want for Christmas... is... cute clothes.

let me just express my love for Kate Johnson really fast.

first, I didn't get to see her all freaking break. That is because she is fancy and went to her ranch and had a grand old time leaving me alone. So when I saw her today, I had a major freak out attack and ran and hugged her. and the onlookers were probably afraid of us and our squealing =D

and then, today at lunch me and Kate were talking about singing a song together for choir. and then she screamed, "YOU SHOULD SING I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN!"

when i told her no, she decided to demonstrate that it wasn't a skanky song by dancing and singing. in front of everyone. and me and Kylee were on the ground laughing our faces off while Kate just danced around.

Ahh, Kate. I love her more than words.

But today was actually a really good Monday. Those are hard to come by and it made me happy. Everything just made me happy in some way or another. My favorite part of the day is when Mark took Annie's crutches in English and put them as short as they could go, and Holbrook still believed that he was hurt. hobbling along like an elf and giggling.

I also liked when Faber wanted to trip his math teacher. ahhh. joy.

another random note since i am blogging and like to talk about things: this weekend me, Kai and Emma watched a freaking scary movie. A Haunting in Connecticut. It's not SCARY but it's images are disturbing and it jumps out at you a lot. I basically hid in the blankets the whole time. But now we're all kinda freaked out and I don't like going anywhere alone. It was a good movie though, but I'm just a wimp.

I'm also just a happy little person. Especially since it's the beginning of the Kumbaya months. As in Christmas happy good feeling months. My brothers put up decorations yesterday, but it doesn't feel right without snow or a tree.

so now, I'm going to spend the next few weeks I'm going to listen to my holiday pandora station, listen to the she and him christmas album (thank you Kobe for telling me about this), make presents and bake cookies and brownies.

thankful. gobble gobble.

I know it's the day AFTER thanksgiving, but I can still blog about how thankful I am. and then blog about insane Black Friday.

so i guess I'll go in a list.

I'm thankful for:

The Officers and Mr. King. They are my family at school. We yell, we giggle, we laugh, we feel sad and we love each other. I love all of them and they are always the best part of the school day for me. When I'm having a suckish day, I'm waiting for seventh period. I love you guys so much it's probably not exactly healthy.

my family. we are weird. we fight. we yell. but I love them despite all the bad things. I have a mom who is my best friend and puts up with my teenager-ness. I have a daddy who loves me despite my sassiness. I have a sister who is a ham and who is my little friend. I have two brothers that drive me crazy sometimes, but are also loving when they want to be.

my grandma and aunts and uncles and cousins.

Katherine Johnson. She is also my best friend. We are completely crazy, but she listens to me and I love to listen to her. She is too boy crazy for words and too spazzy for words too. But she is the sweetest girl alive and I love her so much.

my ward and the gospel. I love my ward so much I can't stand it. especiallly the mia maids, because we're all so close. and i'm grateful that I have the gospel in my life. without it, i have no idea what i would do or who i would be.

my friends at school. i love them very very much too.

being weird.
pumpkin pie.
books.
pinterest:)
modern family
netflix
cute shoes

word.






now on to Black Friday!

so yesterday was pretty grand. i woke up, watched the parade a little (Ingrid Michaelson. yesssss) and then we went bowling. i lost. but that's okay! because it was a blast! and then we went home, I watched some Psych and then Grandmother's house! and we ate and had a blast.

then we went to Wal Mart at eight thirty! and me and my mom stood by this purple jeep for Elysia for two and a half hours! and we met a super nice guy next to us who was freaking awesome. we made up a strategy with him. we got the top two and the people on the other side got the bottom two jeeps. but about ten minutes before we could grab them, this one dude wormed his way in the line.

then, me and my mom had a tug of war with him! and the nice guy told us to hold onto his while he pullled on ours. and he ripped it right out of the other dude's hands! too bad jerkface! should've waited! And then the jerkface tried to steal someone else's jeep! so our nice dude went and yelled at Jerkface for us.

and then the nice stranger and his cute wife went in line. and we didn't even know this awesome dude's name.

I love nice people like that. Grandma had one to help her get a jeep for Amber, and Amy had one to help her get barbies for Maryann. Nice people give me hope when everyone is having freak out attacks. seriously. we heard someone across the store scream, "GIVE IT TO ME!"

people are crazy.

now I can play Christmas music without feeling guilty:)

fra-gee-lay.

i'm excited to watch this!

never gets old:)


Tuesday, November 22, 2011

maybe...

maybe i should be at school instead of sitting at the computer in my pjs.
maybe I shouldn't be listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving.
maybe I shouldn't burn four waffles in a row.
maybe i shouldn't be putting pictures on my blog for fourty minutes straight.
maybe.

or maybe not.

basically, I'm trying to stay positive after a kinda lame day. 

in the spirit of being positive, funny quote!
teacher: "Where do you think all the drug lords get their power and influence?"
Gabe: "Mexico."

but anyway, today was kinda lame. I woke up late and was rushing all morning. but luckily, I got to eat my captain crunch. yum. and then I get to school and I'm trying really really hard not to fall asleep. I might admit, i failed in seminary. but it was only five minutes!

and then I was loopy all day and laughing at random things. and when we were called out of class to go to the game, we had to wait an HOUR for the bus. we were all ticked and wanted to go home. luckily, the game was fun because Laurel went. I love La la. We laughed and made fun of Max's mullet and just had a ball. 

and then I got home to find that everyone ate without me so I had to make Ramen. which was kinda lame. 

but that was all that was bad. it wasn't a bad day, just lame.


BUT:

only one more day of school left! I get to hang out with my Melany, Kylee, Landry and others for four glorious days! 

joy.

blonde moments.

my day was filled with giggles at others misfortune. no big deal.

so here's how it went:

in first period geography, i was sitting next to my kaitlyn and we were studying our europe maps. when she pointed to italy and told me that it was rome. so i was practically rolling on the floor and trying to tell her that rome was a CITY. and she didn't believe me until i had to phyiscally move her hand onto her map. now our new joke is,

how do you spell italy? R-O-M-E!

and then, at the basketball game I was talking to Brooke and was trying to explain to her that a country and a continent aren't the same thing. and then I was explaining that yes, Canada is in North America. and then she ran off to Jenson to tell him that you don't need a Passport to get into Canada. you do, just to let you know.

ahhh man.

and then this week has been prime. ma' let me stay home yesterday because I slept through my alarm. which was AWESOME. no school and psych all day is always a party!


i don't think blondes are dumb, i just found this funny.

other funny thoughts:

BAHAHAHA. this is in the spirit of Breaking Dawn. yeah... not going to that movie.

oh my goodness. i just peed myself.

keep calm and dance on.

okay, i wouldn't call my dancing CALM. my dancing is spazzy, seizure in the middle of the dance floor stuff.

so here's the low down:

last night, at Stockon and Jake's party, I was spazzy. I slapped Gabe in the face, i elbowed five people in the ribs. But I had a ball, so what the heck!

And another note: I kind of adore Sam Faber and marky very very much. Last night, they were dancing like crazy people with me and didn't give a crap about what anyone thought of them. I really admire that. that's someone who I want to be.

(okay, my m is being dumb again. watch, so spacebar for the next paragraph: hello! Im lmmmmove mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm everyone and emverything in this worlmd!m i mmalso love pinterest! i'mmm a little addicted. yep. mthe mm ims really dub mand if you can read this then i am proud of YOU)

see???? my computer is retarded!!!!

anyway. Pinterest: my addiction. I Love it. I don't go on it very often, but when i do its for a long time. I loooooove it. i need an intervention.

i also love Pandora. Sydney showed it to me last night and I am ADDICTED. but i hate how you can't replay songs. grrrrr.

during this week i am going to smile till my face hurts, because I'm thinking this is gonna be a hard one. I feel it in my bones.

but my day: (also, I'm sorry, this is really random but its my blog, so too bad!)

today I went to Disney on Ice with my family. I LOVED IT. I loved it more than the three year old did. I seriously almost cried when it was over. My favorite part was Tangled and the floating lanterns and the couple skate thing. I loved it, I loved it, I loved it. I'm a nerd.

and then on our way home, I called Landry and Desi and told them about it. and then i went over to landry's house where Tanner was having his police man birthday party. When i got there, i was ambushed but lots of ten year olds. i was hustled to "jail" even though I hadn't done anything. the jail was a cardboard box. they all laughed at me and pointed their nerf guns at me. so i ran away, and then Isac Gates tackled me. THEN i ran inside and locked the door and laughed at them through the window. then I went and drank mountain dew with landry and Desi. then the kids came inside for doughnuts and one of them was telling me how he hated girls. so i kissed him on the cheek. then a couple of other boys until Nicole got mad at me. then me and landry and desi watched Peter Pan downstairs until they all left.

and this is the funny part. Dillon was over to play with Tanner, but Tanner was kinda ignoring him. So Dillon was hanging out with me desi and landry. A bunch of teenage girls and a nine year old watching Thor. And then Dillon scared me and my reflex was to punch him on the mouth. but he forgave me:)

then i went home and babysat. it was a good saturuday.

modern love... it's like a taco truck.

This modern love
Yeah it's a taco truck
Come on take the phone calls
'N I'll take the silence
This modern love
Is not enough.


this is possibly the most random song ever. but I love it, and I love mat nathanson. look him up. sooo good and so attractive. mmm.


mmmhmm.

so, ya know. life has kinda caught up with me and i've had no time for anything. like yesterday, i had to leave the basketball game and i couldn't stay and watch my adorable cousin play on JV because of young womens. then that shindig ended around ten. then, hunger games! second time!

i've been very very very busy with my teenage life. and it's only the start of the term!

yip. yip. hooray.

anyway, funny story. remember that new kid I was telling you all about? yeah. he sits next to me in biology. and yesterday I was yelling at Kate (being so close to each other)

"KATHERINE! I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR BLADDER ISSUES!"

and the poor kids face was priceless. seriously. i wish i had a camera that exact moment.

also: emotional moment for me.

so yesterday while walking past Nikita's house on the way to church my heart almost stopped. I miss her more than I thought I could miss a person. and then I was on her Pinterest board and I broke down and cried. but luckily, she is having a grand time in chicago and will be visiting us as much as possible. and when she does I'll give her the biggest hug ever. I LOVE YOU NIKITA!
isn't she beautiful?!


i felt like a stalker going through her facebook photos to find this beauty:)


she lives a colorful lifestyle

trivia

quick trivia question: how many ninth graders does it take to make a 100 piece panda puzzle for five and up?

answer: Roman, Melany, Josh and me. so four if you're bad at math.

yeah, we're the cool kids on the block.

quick question, how many hats can Roman fit on his head?

answer, three.


hehehe:)
 okay. that's all my trivia questions for now, because it's a weekend.

Thursday, November 3, 2011

me and Junie B. Jones are the same.

so basically, I'm a five year old in a teenagers body.

I eat fruit snacks, I climb trees, I paint and color, I sing randomly, I dance randomly, I cry randomly, I giggle for no reason, I laugh at dumb things, I'm sensitive, I'm crazy.

I love being immature:)

okay. so today something clicked into my head and I almost died. this has happened TWICE this year:

okay. so today we had a new boy in ninth grade at our school. and all the girls (besides me and some others) were FREAKING out. really. I felt bad for the poor kid. I mean, it was his first day in a new state and these obnoxious girls were all over him. I would've screamed and punched them.

So I decided to befriend the lad! I mean, why not? new friends! that's cool!

and I was walking with him to biology, and all the girls around us are trying to be cool/flirty/funny. but they were really being annoying. and then I started spazzing out because I couldn't get through a croud of people so I just started yelling at them like I always do, and I used my binder as a "force field" and was making Star Trek sounds. and the kid follows me and gives me one of the weirdest looks i've ever seen.

and then it hits me

for all of you who aren't as cool as you could be and haven't read Junie B Jones go and read them right now. but in one of the books, it's called "Junie B Jones loves Handsome Warren" and all of Junie B's friends all fall in "love" with the new boy in kindergarten and they're trying to impress each other. and Junie B. is just being her crazy loveable self and he calls her a "nutball"

if you're not making the connections, I'm Junie B. The "nutball"

and this has happened TWICE this year! Once with new boy (I think his name is Jonah? Dang. I'll find out tomorrow) and once with Larebear. I was the crazy and all the other girls were freaking out.

I'm not normal, but that's okay. I like me a lot =D


me. totally me.

even more me.

my hero.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

I got this.

justa follow up post about yesterday. (i know, I blog two days in a row. I need a life, okay? but the good news is, only Geography make up work to do!)

okay, here's the deal: I'm a teenage girl. I freak out a lot. but you can't blame me, I'm on an adolescant (however you spell it) roller coaster. So I have the legal right to freak out and cry once in a while.

So why was I freaking out?

The day sucked.
No food. or sleep. that'll do something to ya.

But guess what! It's all good! I apologized to everyone that i was snotty to. Me and Kate made up (I didn't really write about that. ah well) she really is my best friend and I love her so much. And some bridges that were broken were fixed (if that makes sense)

so it's all good. I've got this handled.

although (just to vent):

someone in my ward is mad at me for having other friends (yeah. i know. teenage girls need to get over themselves. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE)

annoying people sit behind me in a certain class and I kinda am ready to scream in their faces for them to shut up. (luckily, I did not. yay will power!)


but on the happier side:

no more geometry for me! I transferred into an easier, all ninth grader algebra class. some people did judge me, but whatever. I don't care what anyone thinks.

my wonderful ma took me and Kylee out to Kneaders. soup! bread! sprite! joy.

rainy mood. type it in on youtube and put it with a bunch of songs. it makes them so much more amazing.

it's sunny outside.

me and Larebear (my new nickname for sam faber) played pinball on the computers in english. and we got doughnuts!

hehehe. Larebear.

So yeah. i got this. it's all okay.

PS: to all of you who talked to me today and hugged me and stuff. I really appreciate it. so yeah. I love you all!

awful

I know blogging about bad days gets boring, ramble ramble, nag nag.

but seriously. today was AWFUL.

I wake up to my dad sending me a text message saying "english teacher says u have to be at school early for poem."  he sends this at seven. SEVEN.

so i'm half asleep and running around the house crying and being delusional. and then ma takes me to school and i realize i have nothing to eat. nothing. no lunch, no breakfast. and she was sick and had to work all day so there goes any eating chances.

so I get to school, work on my poem for 45 minutes because i messed all the citations after number seventy up, and i still don't get done. guess who has to work in RAP and lunch? yeah, me

so i go to classes and i'm ready to throw up because I'm starving. I'm yelling at everyone and ready to bite their heads off for even touching me. I was (am) pissed off.

and I'm trying to be positive. but it doesn't work and i'm MAD. and then comes RAP, english, lunch. i only got ten minutes of lunch. and by then, everyone had eaten so i got nothing. great. and then i'm sitting in biology dreading for them to call us down because I don't wanna go to the game. I was not in the mood for crazed jr high children. no way.

so we're waiting for the bus, and I just loose it. I'm starving, and I've only eaten an apple slice by now. and I'm trying to take deeeeeeeep breaths but it's not working and i start crying. i put my head between my knees so no one noticed. (thank goodness. I'm never crying at school again. but that's a story for another day)

and then we go to the game. it's fine for about ten minutes, then I'm ready to kill everyone who talks to me. except Jessie, who is being a wonderful good samaritan and is just sitting calmy by me not talking or touching me, but keeping me company. That was just what i needed. I'm thankful for her today. and everyday.

and then, Kate pushes me down jokingly and i loose it. I start bawling like a little child on the playground. And my dear Jessica drags me outside and just lets me bawl. We walked around the school for a little while, and then my wonderful mom came to pick me up early, because while i was loosing it, i texted her. and while we're in the car I just cry and cry. and we get home and it's all happy.

but then comes YW. it's all hunky dory and happy. and sue massages my back and it feels soooo good. and then it's time to go home. Landry and Desi are walking out the door, and I start to follow them. Landry glares at me and Desi tells me she has "problems that she needs to talk about with her"

oh. okay. glad I've been calling you my best friend for seven years. cool

and I'm so mad, I don't even care about names right now. I don't care what they think of me. I need to breathe, but i can't. i can't.

so yeah. awful. and I don't care if i sound whiny. if you think i do, get over it. it's not your blog, its mine.

AND I CAN WRITE ABOUT WHATEVER THE FREAKING HECK I WANT!

so there.

justa laugh

I found this funny:

So I'm sitting, searching Youtube for good songs, when I find the New Justin Bieber song that I've been trying to find time to listen to.

no homework, no activties. yes i'm listening.

and I'm going "awwww" to myself when all of a sudden I realize something.

I'm sitting here, listening to the one of the cutest Christmas songs by one of the cutest guys, and I find myself playing the zit popper game on my iphone.

I take this as a bad omen about my future boyfriends.

awkward.

I love awkward. Awkward the TV show, awkward moments, awkward movies in Seminary, awkward family photos. Everything under the sun that is awkward.

but the most awkward thing I love is Stake Dances.

Stake Dances are the definition of awkward. It's a bunch of sweaty Mormon teenagers spazzing out to a fast song, or doing the "Jr. High wobble" (as Olivia would call it) to slow songs. You eat microwaved food, otter pops and you just dance and no one cares because you're all doing the same thing. It's awesome!

PS: the Jr High Wobble is the dance where kids are as far away fro each other as possible while still touching each other. (arms hyper extended. that kinda thing.)

So we had a Stake Dance Saturday night that went for THREE HOURS. Yeah, three. It was supposed to go until ten thirty, but i was there helping clean up till eleven.

anyway.

I had a blast. Me and my dear Olivia Perez awkward danced it out. and we did it with everything in our souls and hearts. and Kate came with me, so it was a total crazy fest. and this happened for two and a half hours.
and it was one of the best nights of my life. seriously. I'd rather be awkward dancing the chicken dance than going to a Haunted House or a party or movie. I'm weird. but I like it:)

AND I have a funny story to tell you all. it involves Desi Loveless. and Jacob (a kid with a Jedi Braid) and awkward.

so. near the end of the dance, Desi grabbed me and Olivia and made us come with her to talk to a cute boy (he really wasn't that attracive, but Desi was ready to explode). so she went up and practically screamed,

"Hi! What's your name?"
"Jacob?"
"Oh! That's cool! My name's Desi! What school do you go to?"
"Bountiful Jr."
"Cool....."
and then she made the most priceless face at me and Olivia and bolted. I said bye to Jacob and his crew with Jedi Braids and walked away pracitcally peeing myself.

so then she keeps thinking she's never ever gonna see him again. and she keeps seeing him in the hallways of the stake center and she keeps screaming "HI JACOB!"

and then she went up to him (because she thought he was leaving) and went up and asked him for a hug. after an awkward one armed hug thingy, she said,

"I THINK YOU'RE REALLY CUTE!" and booked it away waving like a crazy person.

and then we see Jacob (by himself) walking away from the stake center at eleven at night. Jamie screamed at Desi, "ASK HIM IF HE WANTS A RIDE! NOWS YOUR CHANCE!"

so then Desi leaps out of the car and runs to Jacob, asking him if he wants a ride. he says yes and they awkwardly walk to the car together. and then we all introduce ourselves (and by now the poor kid thinks we're retarded) and then we drop him off, all waving like crazies.

and that's my story.

life is good:)

=D

smiley face icon

okay, so it's nine thirty, I just got home twenty minutes ago and I haven't even started on my homework for tomorrow. awesome.

but I don't care. I'm happy. I'm happy. I'm happy.

and I'll sing out to the rooftops.

I'M HAPPY.

not actually just happy, more like extatic. more like bouncing off the walls.

life is great:)

and guess what? you're going to have to guess why. cause I'm not tellin the internet. noooo way. what if my creepy old man stalker is reading this and finds out and kills me because I'm so happy. go away creepy old man, no one likes you. (but I love you Kayla. Yeah, I said it)

another reason is because I found out about Rachel Goodrich. She's a freaking awesome artist who plays the uke and kazoo. classy. I love her dearly. Her song Light Bulb is my new favorite. Youtube it.




this is Rachel:)

I'm in love


anyway. today was a freaking busy day. I woke up, went to school, :), then had a basketball game. We lost, but our team is gonna be pretty good. there was just a black kid on steriods that had super huge arm muscles from North Layton. Woah. and most of their guys were hot. very. hot. anyway. the game ended at five, so i had to call daddy, go home and change at lightning speed for the choir concert.

holy. crap. best concert of my life. I love choir. we're like a little family. we sing, we dance, we scream, we yell and we just love each other:) and we've all embarassed ourselves by singing in front of each other. we're tight. I love those kids.

and the concert was just a blast. our songs sounded great, especially our acapella piece. i loved it. then Nightmare was a blast. we looked creepy and the song was great. but the whole time I was thinking of Ma Young saying to the boys, "Cool Joes, yeah! You're cool!" and I almost died. and the whole time i was smiling my face off, because of other reasons that are not to be shared all over the world wide web.

and then after me, Amber, Kate, Annie and Jake went to sub zero! And I saw Sam Hellewell! I love Sam! We go way back and she is darling! I love her dearly!

and yeah, now I'm home and I'm supposed to be working on biology and english and a map quiz, but I'd rather blog:)

my motto now:)

Gives me HOPE.

I'm feelin' hopeful.

I've finished my Student Gov. Presentation, I finished my killer math UEA homework (Yes, she assigned HW over UEA. That's illegal), I got to see my friends that I've missed ever so much at school, Jamie took us for ice cream after school and... well ya know... =D

maybe you don't know. oh well. you can guess. hint: I'm a teenage girl.

But seriously, school days like today are the days that keep me going. sometimes I feel like crawling into a dark hole and never ever coming out again, but on this last really nice fall day of the year, I'm feeling good.

If it's the last nice day of the year, why the heck am I blogging?!

because blogging is super fun.

but on this gorgeous yellow red and orange October day, I'm just happy. how can you NOT be?

so: story time. yesterday, after young women and young men combined meeting (the most embarassing thing ever. don't even talk to me about it) me and Becca decided to go on a Sunday walk to the temple. Best. Idea. Ever. It was so gorgeous and warm and lovely. And I was with my Becca. how I love her. And we just caught up and talked about boys (that was pretty much all we talked about, that boy crazy child) and laughed ourselves silly. Oh, and we ran away from some vicious dogs. But when we got to the temple to walk around on the grounds we found out that it was CLOSED. What?! We were mad. We spent a good fifteen minutes walking up the freaking hill to see the temple, and it's closed. Oh, and I almost got my head stuck in between the bars when I was trying to sneak in. ooops. maybe that's why I shouldn't do that...

but I'm just happy, and Ours by Taylor Swift is on repeat on my playlist. now I'm going to go watch nightmare before christmas so I can get in the Halloween mood...

PS: I think I'm going to be princess Leia for Halloween. But I need a hot boy to be Han Solo... I'll find one.. just wait.

Sunday, October 23, 2011

taylor swift has a song for everything.

So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
people throw rocks at things that shine,
But they can't take what's ours,
The stakes are high,
the water's rough,
But this love is ours.


I'm taking a break from all day sunday homework day. dang, it sucks. Darn procrastination! But I just love this song, and it's been on replay on my iPod and itunes all day. And if I have to write another sentence on Milton Hershey, i'm gonna scream out the window.

and i like this big font.

anyway, this weekend has been prime. i spent Thursday doing nothing, which was kinda lame. I can't just sit around and do nothing, it's not my personality. Friday, I spent the day at Lagoon with my Kylee, then we went to night games at Oak Hills with Casey, Abby, Larry, Dillon, Taylor, Junho and Josh. that was a blast too. then I spent all saturday waiting to go to Frightmares at night with Kylee, and that was fun too. 

although those frightmares characters don't ever carry on a conversation with me. And we met hot sophmores in line for the Spider! ohhh baby, those boys were fine. And then the grown men sitting next to me on Wicked were giggling. yes, GIGGLING. 

and then me and Josh decided that all the weird stuff happens to me. why me? oh well, I like weirdness and awkwardness. it's just how I roll:)
