I was eating a cookie today and half way through finishing it, I realized that it was a disgusting cookie. This was a really bad situation for me because any time I actually do eat a cookie, I'm looking to have an enjoyable experience. It's pretty much a given that the cookie will be tasty and so when it's not, it's just twice as horrible. Then comes the thought of the calories I just wasted while discovering that the cookie was bad. Then I automatically get a craving for something that I know will satisfy my sweet tooth, like a giant chocolate bar that is twice as bad for me and five times less accessable than the untasty cookie in my lap.
This makes me miss home more than anything. There is just something about being able to take a long stroll on a bridge in the middle of the crisp night. Cold as it may have been, I love being able to absorb the fact that I am with people that I truly love, inside and out. Of course, Eli brought his long board, so we "raced" along one of the many bridges in the city that cross the river. Afraid of falling to my death, despite the high railings, I chose to stop and angle my board in the right direction everytime I veered left or right, which was often. Sarah sat down against the railing of the bridge and we soon realized that all we had to do was place an old-looking gray hat on her head and she looked like an insta-hobo. It was cute. Despite the cold and the various complaints, I wanted to stay on that bridge all night, especially since I knew that it probably would be my last night in the city.
So much homework lately! I haven't been doing any of it over this four-day weekend either... eek! I need to clean up the room before my roomie gets home tomorrow, too. She got all of her hair chopped off while she was home this weekend, I can't wait to see it! Hope everyone is having a super wonderful life.
This picture is from summer...ah fun times. I can't wait to do it again.
For some reason I started thinking about this computer game I used to play when I was little. It's called Jump Start First Grade.. no idea why the thought crossed my mind, but after thinking about all the good times I had while playing that game, I really want to find it and play it again. Freddie Fish too.
Found this video on youtube. Pretty much sums up my jump start experience.
Way too much going on lately and way too little blog posts from me. All is good though for I'll just keep using the pictures from past events in future posts. I really hate it when my posts don't really correspond to what I did recently. Everything is going to be all unorganized between my blog and my real life... which will bother me. In this case, I think I will upload some pictures from more recent events and then add older ones when my life becomes boring- which shouldn't be a far away event.
These pictures were taken yesterday. Jared decided he really wanted to do a photo shoot and DJ came along as well. Before realizing how wanting to do a photo shoot didn’t exactly spout masculinity, I managed to snag a few good pictures...Not to mention the fact that it's freezing cold outside! Gotta love their matching hats, too. They found them in my room; of course they were a fabulous idea.
Christmas Extravaganza was held by my friend Brooke. She gets a boner everytime she hears the word Christmas, so naturally the day was filled with an enormous amount of holiday festivities. On our list was build a gingerbread house, sing Christmas carols, decorate cookies, go ice skating in the city, see the Santas of the world, watch a Christmas movie, and SNUGGLE. We failed and didn't end up snuggling, singing, or watching a movie, but as for the other plans, we completed everything.
Honey's a hoodrat
We even managed to take some lovely family portraits. After our gingerbread house collapsed and we discovered that the cookies tasted like chalk, it was time for some ice skating.
"I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!!" was the quote of the night..Elf of course, for those of you that don't know your fantastic Christmas movie lines by heart.
Overall, it was a pretty fantastic evening! Hopefully we can continue the tradition next year
