It's been way too hot lately and on top of that I've been sick... Not fun. So for the past few days I've been hiding in my room... Thank God for basement bedrooms! (Which I finally have all to myself) Twenty years old and I've got my own room for the first time. Kind of weird.

It's kind of late right now but I haven't been able to sleep, even in the basement at midnight it's still too hot. So I've been watching videos on Youtube... 

My sister showed me this video and I like it a lot. :P

Normally I'm not the type for pop teen girl music but there's just something about this...

I also really love the Hillywood show. I wouldn't really recommend all of it but they do some great parodies. Especially their first Twilight parody and their Hunger Games one as well.

I've never seen the Hunger Games and I have no desire to but my brother has and he said that she did this almost too well.

In some ways I wish I could be more like Hillary from the Hillywood Show. She's so confident and smooth. I've never been that way. The last time I went up on stage to sing I failed pretty badly. I can know the song like the back of my hand but as soon as I get up in front of people my body betrays me. I start shaking and I forget the words and my voice cracks.... I can't even imagine dancing. :P That would be a million times worse. I'd look like an idiot dancing like that.

Oh well... I long long ago kissed my dream of becoming an actress goodbye. :P It's very frustrating to have an extrovert mentality with an introverts body. If I were completely one or the other things would be so much simpler.

I wonder how many people are like that. Wanting to get up and do things in front of people, or even just be able to go to a big party and talk to random strangers without getting tongue tied and sounding like a moron. Well, I guess when I put it that way tons of people are probably like that. 

But since I can't be like that, and believe me I've tried many many times, I'm going to give this blog another go. :P Nice thing about the internet is you don't have to talk to people face to face...

I'm going to work on having a more confident voice. Maybe if I do it enough here I'll be able to do it more in real life. Problem is... If I start acting confident and assertive now people will think there's something wrong with me. They've known me for about 8-9 years now. 

What do you think? Have you tried to change your image?

Fictional Friends

Sometimes between exhaustion, headaches, back aches, and other things I just need some time to recover.
Today was one of those days... 

But usually if I can just get away and not talk to anyone for a while I'll feel better. Fictional characters are some of my best friends during these times. :) Right now I'm revisiting my Ouran friends. :)

It's such a weird show... I know a lot of people wouldn't like it.

I have so favorite book and movie characters... And it's kind of sad that I don't have as much time for them anymore.

But I am meeting some new characters! Benny recently introduced me to Pokemon. Pikachu may just be the most adorable thing in the whole world!

Yeah... I'm kind of loving that show... And the game. Right now I'm playing Pokemon Yellow which means that I got Pikachu to start out and he follows me around. :D

The Voice


This post will be a full blown youtube spasms post so please feel free to disregard it entirely. 

So for those of you who haven't seen the show there are four coaches; Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton.

In the first part of the series there are a series of blind auditions. Singers get up and perform while the coaches are sitting in chairs with their backs to them. That way the performers are purely judged on their voice instead of how they dress, look, or act.

Each coach gets twelve slots to fill and then as soon as those twelve team members are chosen they instantly go to the battle rounds and whittle it down to six members.

Team Adam:
Tony Lucca
Katrina Parker
Karla Davis
Kim Yarbrough

Team Cee Lo:
Juliet Simms
Jamar Rogers
James Massone
Erin Martin
Tony Vincent

Team Christina:
Chris Mann
Lindsey Pavao
Ashley De La Rosa
Jesse Campbell
Moses Stone
Sera Hill

Team Blake:
Jermaine Paul
Erin Willet
Jordis Unga
Charlotte Sometimes
Naia  Kete

Of those my favorites were Tony Lucca, Mathai, Juliet Simms, Tony Vincent, Lindsey Pavao,  Ashley De La Rosa, Jamar Rogers, and Raelynn.

Now for a TON of Youtube videos! :D :D :D

Out of the top 4 he was one of the ones I wanted to win. :P

This was my favorite of his performances :D

I could seriously watch this video a million times.......... I kind of love her.

In both these videos I definitely think she sounds better than the originals.

Both of them were amazing... I am glad Tony won though. The bit where he sings "Oooo girl...."

He was SO good......

She was my favorite... I wanted her to win so badly! Everything about this performance just gives me goosebumps.

And I don't even like this song...

So yeah... I'm looking forward to the next season! :P

Hi there.........

So yeah. So much for the two posts a week resolution. :P I've been so busy between work and Benny and various other things that I haven't had much of a chance to clean my room let alone post on my blog. (I did clean my room a couple days ago, thus the posting.)

But tonight as I was walking home from choir I was realizing that it wasn't quite dark yet... It was dusky, but there was definitely still daylight. That got me thinking about seasons and the different things they bring. I know that's generic but still, I felt like doing a post about it. :)


It's so interesting to me how in the winter it gets dark at seven o'clock and then in the summer it stays light out till what, nine or ten? In the winter it's hard to imagine that and in the summer it just seems to weird to think about it being dark that early.


Then there's the wonderful things each season brings, specifically smells. Spring just smells so good this year! There's the sweet scent of daphne, cherry blossoms, and lilacs mixed with rain and grass and growing. I'd forgotten how good it smelled.

Summer has a lovely smell too. A warm soft scent made of dirt, new mowed grass and the fresh morning air early on in the morning. 

Summer summer summer

Summer does have some smells that aren't so nice... Mainly melting asphalt but the goods out weigh the bads. :)

Fall is one of my favorites with it's spicy smells of falling leaves, smoke, and the crisp feeling of the air.


Currently I'm still loving the spring smells and looking forward to summer ones! Take some time to stop and smell the flowers. :)

I guess not... I've got a cold and snow mixed with hail was coming down heavily yesterday. Oh well, it's only the middle of March. Plenty of warm weather ahead.

But mixed in with the nasty weather and cold we had  couple of really beautiful days! Walking down to the transit center was thoroughly enjoyable and there was one glorious day where I didn't even wear a coat!


The last few days it's been switching from rain to snow to hail to sunshine back to rain. I have to say I'm getting a little tired of winter clothes...


But Spring really is beginning to make an appearance in some areas. On my walk to the bus stop there is this  one house that is painted a really bright blue. Right up against it a cherry tree is blossoming and the contrast between the pink of the cherry blossoms and the blue of the house is lovely.

There's a pussy willow right next to the bus stop and one block away there is a carpet of deep purple crocuses. I can feel myself getting all excited inside.

Daphne, one of my favorite flowers is blooming everywhere. It smells so beautiful...

Eighties Tuesday

The Help

So we're already two and a half months into 2012. So far it has been a pretty good year for me. My job has been going particularly well. I've also been reading a whole lot more.

I finally got around to reading and watching The Help. Both the book and the movie were amazing! 

 I could totally relate to the heroine "Skeeter".

There were several hilarious moments that made me laugh out loud. Like the chocolate pie... ;D

And Celia... Her story made me cry.

The colors and the clothes in the movie were fun. The excessive amount of Coke drinking made me thirsty.......



Minny, the one in the middle was so funny! :D

 It also had its sad moments... I came very close to crying several times.
The book was amazing as well, I read it on the way to work and back every day. It was so hard to set it down. 
I want to own both of them, definitely a re-read AND a re-watch for me.
