Material World

So remember when I told you about the chick that changed the name of our linger longer to "dessert and flirt"? Just a quick update on her....She's still the spokesperson for our provident living committee. (I still have not been called for a meeting. Should I ask them to call me? Or should they already know?) Anyway, once again she's up to her crazy antics! This might sound like a joke....but I assure that it is NOT a joke. Last Sunday after announcing our "dessert and flirt" she went ahead and bestowed certain people "marriage material points"!!! O_0 ummmm.....what!? I KNOW!! So she's up there announcing the time and theme of our D&F and she just hands out marriage material points. I was so shocked I started laughing really hard. I mean really really hard. Cause, who does that? She gave some girl "marriage material points" for dressing nice and gave some points to a guy for the same thing. The funny thing is, although I'm kind of annoyed at this, I have to admit that after my laughing fit I thought, "why not me?". So along with dressing real cute on Sundays (as usual) I will now be actively looking for her at church and complimenting her on her outfit so that she can notice mine and give me marriage material points and I can go back to not caring about being marriage material. I just want to be able to say "Marriage material? Yup, that's me! I have points to prove it!"

Well, I gotta go pick out my outfit for tomorrow!

"Love is a losing game"

That's what Amy Winehouse says.

Lately I've been sort of pondering about love. I've just always wanted to know the feeling you know? Plus I've been reading Pride and Prejudice. Also I just love all things romance. Probably not as much as Leah though. I know that the love portrayed in the movies is false and I know that there's more to it than the movies show. But what IS it!? I've asked a few people and some of these people's answers sound more like Julia Roberts in this scene of The Mexican. Except that the question isn't the same and that in the question of "love" there is no right answer.

And I'll leave you with my favorite quote from Pride and Prejudice thus far...

"Such a change in a man of so much pride excited not only astonishment but gratitude-- for love, ardent love, it must be attributed; and as such its impression on her was of a sort to be encouraged, as by no means unpleasing, though it could not be exactly defined. She respected, she esteemed, she was grateful to him, she felt a real interest in his welfare; and she only wanted to know how far she wished that welfare to depend upon herself..."

I think of all the pondering I've ever done the one thing that I felt was true was that love is a mutual respect for each other.

Creative outlet

Since knitting in the summer makes me hot and sweaty (not really. but if i think about it, I imagine myself knitting on the couch umcomfortably warm. you know?) I have moved onto fabrics! I bought a sewing machine, remember? Well I've been making Dani a dress that she will soon be able to model for you!

Today after my 20 min work out I felt that I wanted to look cute today. So I made a couple of headbands out of some scrap fabric and ribbon. I like them I think they are cute.

Fill in the Blank 2

1. The very best thing about the summer are The long days, summer skin and for some reason during the summer I just feel like I can do ANYTHING. Like I'm free.

2. My first crush ever was a mexican boy in my class who's name was Dennis. He told me one day that my ears were perfect. Weird? or Romantic? (I was in 3rd grade)

3. This may sound really silly but I wish I were a Pirate.

4. I squeeze my toothpaste from the bottom. unless it's brand new, then i squeeze from the middle.

5. My absolute favorite "comfort food" is mexican style eggs with green salsa on top.

6. A random fact about me is that i hate the sound of people eating and drinking.

7. The one piece of technology that truly makes my life better and I couldn't live without is a computer.

I got this from the same place as last time.

Weather: Parlty Cloudy with a Chance of Rap Music

As you all know. I live in GA. More specifically Duluth, GA. I used to live in Atlanta and I still go to the singles ward in Atlanta. Atlanta is where the playas play. Where the parties don't end till 8 in da mornin (it's true I partied this weekend and I didn't sleep till 6 am and I was the first to leave). And it's full of peeps that give directions that sound like this: "you funna get awn da two-eadie- figh(285) goin wes, den you funna get offda two eadie figh and get back awn it goin eas."..."oh ok sir, why can't we just get on the 285 going east in the first place?"

The reason for this post is this, Hip Hop. Or rap music. Whatever you want to call it. Atlanta is the Hip Hop Capital of the world--or so claims our radio station, 95.5 The beat--. Over the years I have learned to appreciate hip hop. I've come to appreciate latin music (which I consider a branch off of hip hop, stuff like ragaeton), ATL latin flavors flow from Miami and New York. I have even come to appreciate country, that is not to say that I love country, but if a song is good I won't deny it. And I think that's my point today, that if a song is good, there is no need to deny it. You don't have to close off your music appreciation just because you claim to be "indie", "alternative", "emo","punk" or even "hip hop". I love music and I know a lot of people that say they love music too. And now, I will be talking about someone in particular who shall remain nameless. In talking to this person you'd think that maybe they like music more than I do. But just the other day I heard this person ragging on hip hop. I'm a little biased because they were ragging on one of my favorite songs. If you claim to love music as much as you do, shouldn't you be able to appreciate all music and not just the music you dress up for? Because this person is that kind of music brat. I don't even know where I was going with this angry post but I just would like that person to know that if you're going to come up to me and say "Oh you 'look' like the kind of person that likes music" don't just assume I like a certain type of music. I like Hip Hop as much as the next ghetto fabulous person. And don't insult my favorite song. Oh and Lil' Wayne is the shiz! AND if you are going to move to ATL from another state don't expect ATL to be Hip Hop free. Just learn to appreciate it, trust me, you will be happier and your booty will be happier cause you'll be shakin it! Your favorite hip hop song might be one that was covered by a band but trust me, the original is better, they always are.

Fill in the blank

1. My favorite book growing up was I didn't read much when I was growing up. It wasn't until highschool that I realized I loved to read

2. The funniest book I've ever read was Naked by David Sedaris. I don't really pick up funny books you know?

3. The one book that has truly changed my life is This one time I read a book that a friend lent me. It was about a member of the church that had died but then came back to life, what are those experiences called? Anyway, I wouldn't say that it changed my life, but it kinda of altered the way I look at the after life and such. I don't know if it's legit you know, but it was cool.

4. If you're looking for a real "tear jerker" you should probably read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Zach told me to read it and I did and it was good. I feel like I've cried while reading other books but I can't remember them right now.

5. If I could meet any author living or dead I would want to meet BOM Prophets count right? I mean, they wrote books. I'd want to meet Captain Moroni. Ok ok, that was kinda cheap. I would really like to meet...oh!...Mark Oliver Everett. I mean his life has been crazy thus far and incredible. He says in his book, I think, that he's a difficult person to be around, I'm not sure exactly what he said, I just remember thinking that being his friend or girlfriend would be a challenge and I was like "let me at him!"

6. The next book on my "to read" list is Pride and Prejudice which I started reading yesterday (sorry Myke that I am not reading Kafka but I've been wanting to read P&P for quite sometime and I got it in the mail when I started reading I, Robot) so next on my list, because Dani bought it her school book fair, is Pride, Prejudice and Zombies!

7. If I was snowed into a remote cabin in the woods and could only choose three books to bring with me I'd bring Twilight, Fight Club and The Great Gatsby. Judge all you want, I don't care! Can we make it 4? Cause I'd really like to bring The Road also.

Feel free to also Fill in the Blank, I'd like to hear from you, my very intellectual friends!

May 2nd 1988.

is the date of my birth. Aren't you happy for that day? I know I am!

I usually like to make a big deal out of my birthday. But this year it was rather lame. I just went to church, came home, ate with cousins, and sat on my couch for the rest of the day. I didn't even get cake! I wasn't expecting cake since it was the sabath and I was not going to break it for selfish reasons but when I got home there were grocery bags on the table. My mom bought food to feed my aunt and cousins but SHE DIDN'T BUY ME A CAKE! NOT EVEN A PIE. NOTHING. We took her out for dinner and got her a free desert and I got nothing. This is why I don't like that her birthday is before mine. I'm selfish whatever. Do you guys know about my "Middle Child Complex"? Basically I get the short end of the stick all the time because I am the middle child. *sigh* Oh well. I'm used to it. Don't worry it gets better. Although I did not get cake, this weekend my parents are buying me 2 pairs of shoes! I've decided that I want some TOMS shoes and some heels! When I told my dad about the whole TOMS shoes thing about how it's buy a shoe give a shoe, he said "So? I don't care about kids in Argentina that don't have shoes!" (He was joking). So for my heels, this is what I saw that I liked.

These next ones are not the ones I want but the general style of the shoe is what I want. High, Skinny heel. I tried a pair on at Dillard's and they were not as uncomfortable as I thought they would be.

I want some "cage" shoes but I haven't found any that I have fallen in love with but these J. Simpson ones are cute

These are the perfect example of the "cage" shoe but I don't Love these :/


I love Steve Madden

Also Steve Madden

And today I impulsively bought a sewing machine. Call it a birthday present to myself. I'm excited!
