I Support Equality


And equal rights. To all schools in the state of Utah. 

Except BYU. 

I'm only wearing this sweatshirt because 

A)  I'm cold.  

My pink Utah cup is fantastic though, and those mittens?? Yeah, the Aggies are legit.  We have our own mittens.

May You Rest In Peace Avatar Zebra


Welcome to Friday nights!  Woo.  I settled down with my copies of the Ensign and the New Era, and a nice cup of dark chocolate peppermint hot chocolate; complete with mini marshmallows and whipped cream.  

After I read my magazines I wanted to watch a lovely movie called the Errand of Angels, it's about a sister missionary. I could not find it anywhere. ANYWHERE. To watch.  I found a site that let me watch the first 10 minutes.  Bad idea.  It was just getting good!  

It's mostly in German though... and I've taken German before... But subtitles would be appreciated. 

Then I decided to learn some more French.  I popped my MP3 disk and brainwashed myself for a good hour.  I'm totally going to sleep with it on, does the whole subconsious learning actually work?  Eh, it's worth a try. 

Then I walk upstairs
and found
my one and favorite brooch
broken.

I cried over my Avatar Zebra. 
The leg is broken, and the pin is snapped.

I love it. 

So naturally I went to find a replacement. 

There's plenty of gold zebra brooches, but none with the leg back quite like mine..... 

C'est la vie. 

So I spent an hours pay on buying my replacement Avatar Zebra. 

It's not as good as my estate sale steal. Close. But the legs aren't a lovely jumbled mess like my old one. I liked that about it. 

May my old one rest in peace, I just wish it wasn't resting in pieces on my dresser....

Oodles of Luck

Generally people in the world all have the same amount of luck, right?  You flip a coin 100  times you'll probably get like 52 heads and 48 tails.  Pretty close to 50-50.  You enter your name into a raffle with over 1,000 people and you have a one in a thousand chance of winning.  Well... Let's say you win.  Sweet awesome!  That iPod is really spiffy.  Then you enter something again.  Wooo!! Real tickets!  And again, Hunger Games special showing!  Again, Sugarland tickets!  That's when you start to think... why did I even enter that?? I loathe county music.

Then you start to think.  Maybe I'm an oddly unlucky person. 

So you push your luck and test it.  

I've entered 3 give away drawing in the past week.  

I've won two of them, and I'll find out about the third tomorrow. 

Give away A) was a 50 dollar gift card to Shabby Apple

Give away B)  was a snazzy personalized notebook that's super adorable

In the past week.

Cut off my foot and call me a rabbit why don't 'cha.  

Not really.  I like my feet.

Donuts...

Merry day after Christmas!  

I hope you all had a fantastic day yesterday.  It was incredibly relaxing and surprisingly long.  My sisters woke my parents, brother, and I at a ridiculiously early time. Even earlier than I'll be waking up everyday on my mission.  Guys.  That's early.  Especially when some of us *cough* *cough* have little-kid-itis and can't go to sleep on Christmas Eve.  Hello 2.5 hours of sleep! Yessss.

For Christmas McCall, who happens to be the same age as my other sister (i'll explain later), got  a baby cakes maker for Christmas.  It's kinda like a grown-up Easy-Bake Oven... But it doesn't actually look like an oven.  Or use a light bulb to make your cakes.  I don't know how well a light bulb will cook anything. But.  She was using that today to make cake pops, and I convinced her to make donut batter so I could use our nifty donut pans. 

Yeah... Fail. 



Don't they look pretty?!  

Eh... Not really...

Don't they look delicious?!

Eh... if you like doughy donuts.  

Really though.  I liked you guys enough to take a bite out of the top donut for an astetically pleasing picture.  In all acutality I'd rather have eaten a meal worm. 

Tomorrow I'll fix these.  They will be delicious!  And the glaze... won't look like glitter.

I'm Back!

I'm baaaaaaack!  Seriously.  For reals.  I've survived Ephraim.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  

Here's a run down of the past month.

A) Thanksgiving was great. Delicious.  Superb. 

B)  Ready....  I GOT MY MISSION CALLLLLLLLLL!!

Any guesses (to those who don't know where I'm headed already?)

*drum roll please*

Tahiti, Papeete! 

hehehehe. I will be teaching the gospel in paradise in the Tahitian and French languages, and my adventure begins on May 1st in the Provo MTC.  There will be much much more about this up until I leave. 

C) I MOVED HOME.  Thank goodness.  I didn't look back.  A lot of people can love Snow College, I'm not one of them, it just wasn't for me.  Literally everytime I came home I cried once I reached the valley because I was so happy to be here, and cried when I had to leave.  USU is my home! I'll be headed there when I get back from my mission. Yesssss.

Until tomorrow, when I have more interesting things to say....

let them eat cake... and soup


Yes. 
You can be jealous.
It tastes even better than it looks. 

I made homemade chicken noodle soup too.
Even the noodles were homemade...

But I ate it before I got a picture. 
*sigh*


BUT

Last night I had the last interview for my mission papers,
so...

I should get my call the Wednesday before
Thanksgiving!

I am so, so, so excited. 

I'll keep you posted, 
but in the mean time,
what are your guesses?

Where am I going??

Don't be shy!

Dear President Obama Bashers

Happy day after election day!!

Okay.  Pet peeve of the week:

A large majority of my Facebook feed complaining that President Obama was reelected. 

Come on.

First of all, call him President Obama, not "Obama." It's a matter of respect, you call men or women in certain positions certain names whether it be religious, political  or even family oriented.  Calling your mother "Mom" instead of "Marcie" is a way of respecting her.

Respect our president.  The people gave him this position, whether you like it or not. 

He was our president for four years, instead of looking at all the "negative" things about him, or the past four years, look at the positives.  Believe it or not, good things haaaave happened. 

Our country spoke.  President Obama won by a lot.  Like, a lot a lot. By over 100 electoral votes.  

AND 

He even won the popular vote.  

The great thing about our county is the ability we have to CHOOSE as a NATION who will lead us for four year.  

We could have a system like Britain  where Parliament chooses who their prime minister is and have a queen.  

Our country could be run by a terrorist organization.

But it's not. 

President Obama will not run our country into the ground in the next four years.


Even if he tries (which he won't)  our Constitution allows for checks on the Executive branch.  

Congress writes the laws. 


Not the president.

Congress controls the budget.

Not the president.

And if the president over steps his bounds, Hey! we can impeach him. 

It's hardly fair to blame the "bad economy" on President Obama.  He stepped into it, and it's gotten better since he was first elected.

Just because there's a "D" next to him name does not mean he has no values or limits.

Take a step back.

He's just a normal American with a family, trying to do his best.

Let's give him a little support, yeah?

Thanks.

xoxo,
mo

p.s. I voted for Romney, and I am just fine with President Obama because the country spoke collectively, as whole, and he has my full support.

Happy Election Day!!



In honor of the change (or no change) our county will go through tonight I gave myself a make over!




Bam!

I like it. 

I'm going to grow my bangs out.

But!

I will be sitting on my laptop alllllllllll night monitoring the election. (this is a suuuuper big deal, if you haven't voted you have a few hours. GO VOTE!! GAH!)

There shall be more posts as the night go through. 

Talk to ya'll soon!

The Satisfied Ewe



Welcome to the Satisfied Ewe.  It's kinda of an oxymoron of a name, if I do say so myself.  This quaint (*cough* sketchy) looking place is found right in downtown Ephraim! Granted... All of Ephraim is downtown. It's one of those places that you can tell the locals eat at, and hey! I'm as good as local, so Brenda and her friend Alexis decided to give it a try with me.

You walk and and you can smell the down-home cooking.  It's a good smell, not a greasy Mickey-D's smell. Then you pick any table you want and wait for the waitress to bring you your menu.  

Alexis, left.  Brenda, right.

As soon as we sat down we noticed 8 or 9 older ladies in the back corner chatting away. Definitely locals. And definitely opinionated.  We eavesdropped on their conversations and had a good laugh as they complained about how the turkey farms have changed over the years, how they set aside money for members in their group for when their husbands die, and how their husbands annoy them.  I snickered a good few times.  They're quite the characters. 

B and A got Root-beer  I'm not much of a soda drinker, I prefer water.  It was good homemade root-beer though, I stole a sip, Then we all ordered the exact same thing, weird I know. 

The salad was so delicious. There's something about restaurant salads, they're always just better than the ones you make at home. (I want a bottle of restaurant ranch dressing for Christmas.) Then we had chicken strips! Yum! They were just like the ones at Burger Bar and were the same price. Yes!! Score.


I wish there would have been more green deliciousness on my plate though....  I would still take a salad or a tofu stir-fry over chicken strips and french fries, any day.   

So, all in all, if you're a fan of french fries, chicken, and Texas toast. The Satisfied Ewe is the place for you!  (hehe that rhymed)  The side salad is fantastic. I'd go back just to eat that.  

Oh, and you get this on the back of your check. 


Ephraim for the win!

Happy Last Day of OCTOBER!!


I'M LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD!!!

IT'S HALLOWEEN!!

(I prefer to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, but where am I going to find Sugar Skulls in Ephraim??

I carved a pumpkin that looks like a cat!


Sorry the picture isn't very good...

Then I watched all the PG-13 horror movies on Netflix.

Ate Pomegranate. 

Ate Reeses and Cookies and Cream bars.

Visited with my Vising Teachers

Ate their delicious cookies (they were seriously the best pumpkin cookies I've ever had)

Then I came back to my computer to find a delightful message from Josh.

I seriously died laughing

Like *DIE*  hyperventilating, rolling on the floor. 

Ready?


What a creep! He copied my costume!

Best. Thing. Ever. 

Happy Halloween!

Snuggle V. Cuddle

*sigh*  
Today was a very dramatic day.
Brenda woke me up to go to Institute.
I didn't want to go.
So instead of getting out of bed to tell her

I texted her this:
"Dear Brenda, go without me.

I'm going to load up on drugs
and sleep."
(not real drugs obviously).

But I got out of bed,
and I was glad I did because 
my Institute teacher is fantastic.

Then, after Institute I arrived at my apartment
I was in a very chipper mood,
reached down into my favorite satchel
and *sigh* realized my favorite satchel
did not contain my keys.
My second favorite one did.

I very dramatically leaned against the door
and slumped to the floor. 
(hehe it rhymed.)

I slumped for an hour.

And may have chipped off
all my nail polish during
The Wait.

Then I walked alllllllllllllllllllllll
the way across campus
in cowboy boots
interrupted Brenda's class
and took her keys.

*sigh* 

Then I watched The District
on BYU TV.
I'm not the type to go
*OOOH REALITY SHOW ON MISSIONARIES*
but it was fantastic. 
And very helpful.

My papers aren't opened yet.

*sigh*

The best part of the day was when 
a certain friend of mind shamelessly
admitted she/he did not know 
the difference between 
snuggling
and
cuddling.

*sigh*

Snuggling is that
*meh I want to be closer*
so you just keep scootching
closer, and closer, and closer.
Cuddling is the casual
*movie time! Keep me warm
I like holding your hand*
type of chillin.  It's appropriate
to snuggle at points during
a movie, but snuggling is usually
reserved for gazing deep into
each other's eyes or preparing 
to take a snooze with your
favorite fluffy kitten.

In other news, 
that came in the mail today.

Fun fact, 
I decided I was going to 
teach  myself Spanish
a few weeks ago
and got from the 
Distribution Center.
Before President Monson
announced the missionary 
age change.

I'm a tad awed. 

*sometimes dramatic days
take a toll on your face so you
hide it with a lovely, fantastic book*

Well....

CONFERENCE TALKS ARE OUT

What's On My Mind

Have I ever mentioned I love fall? I absolutely adore it!  I love the leaves, the chilly air (commonly referred to as "Sweater Weather"), the fresh squashes and tomatoes, pumpkins, corn, mazes, haunted houses, Halloween.  I love looking out the window and seeing all the trees change color. There's green, yellow, red, and orange right out my window.  I love warm boots, dark jeans, and, of course sweaters.  I love relaxing at the end of the day with a mug of hot chocolate or apple cider.  Or going on walks through the leaves, and wearing mittens.  I love autumn.

I love the fact I've checked the Missionary Online Recommendation System every half hour today, hoping my bishop has activated my papers. (not yet). My favorite parts of the day are when I wake up every morning to a text from Josh, my hour-two hours I spend studying Preach My Gospel, or the Book of Mormon,  dinner (we make fantastic dinners around here), around 8 o'clock when we decide we want to make weight watchers cookies, and when I finally curl up in bed, read a few more chapters in the Book of Mormon, and have happy dreams all night.  That's what I like about my days.

What I don't like.  Having to wake up early to go icky Biology.  It's not icky, just boring.  Realizing you're almost out of margarita sticks.  (Lemon-lime slushed popsicles, they aren't alcoholic, I promise.) Missing my family.  I know, weird right.  I actually do miss my crazy family.  I miss high school too.  Which is even weirder, but I liked spending my days studying government, working with the literary magazine, and debate.  

Most of all though, I miss writing essays.  The worst decision ever is not taking an English class this semester, I don't know if I can survive.  I miss editing newspaper articles, or those dumb group-editing sessions in English.  Those sessions were awful! I always felt like my papers neeeever got any suggestions that actually helped me, but most of the time I'd take the essays I was editing for a few class periods and edit them to shreds.  I love editing.  I miss it so much. 

I miss working with people.  All through high school I was either an editor, or a debate captain, or volunteering.  I like teaching because, believe it or not, I learn so much more about something when I teach someone.  It gave me the excuse to spend hours looking up random things, like George Mason, or graffiti, or the complete works of U2, to help the people I was working with.  That's how I learn the best.  I can't sit in a lecture, well, I can, but if I get with a study group and re-teach what I learned from that awfully boring lecture I'll learn it better.  

I have to share what I know.  I like that.  My poor husband is going to learn a lot of random facts from me one day. Lucky him.

Well... :D

So. . .

I met with my bishop today.

And. . .

As soon as he talks to my home-ward bishop

I will be set to

open my mission papers.

I'm going on a mission.

And I couldn't be happier.

Oh my goodness!

xoxo,
mo

p.s.


read this:



"Today many sisters are being called to serve. Many more are preparing to serve. Not because they aren't married or dont have anything else to do, but they have the desire to serve. One reason that the Lord wants more sisters to serve is because within the next generation He will send His priesthood army to the earth. He wants to send choice spirit children to mothers who have been prepared, properly trained, and taught in the gospel. What better schooling can a mother have than the experience and growth she gains through serving a mission." 

-President Gordon B. Hinckley

Tomorrow I meet with my bishop.

A Day in the Life of a Vegan

Breakfast:  Oatmeal with Raspberries.  Every. Single. Day.  I think I could eat this every day of my life and not get sick of it. . . mmmm.  I don't care what kind of oatmeal, as long as my raspberries are in there.  If you don't have any delectable fresh berries (like me. . . ) I ran to wally-world and bought a bag of frozen ones.  Before you nuke your oats I crunch some frozen berries into smaller chunks (so every bite had juicy goodness and you save money) and throw them in.  That way, when it's done cooking, you'd never know they were frozen.  Add a little water to make it the consistency you like and, BAM! Delicious breakfast.

*insert picture here.... my camera ran out of batteries and I'm too cheap to go buy some.... I'll just wait until I go home and stock back up... welcome to the life of a college student*

If you don't like oatmeal I really like chopped up fruit for breakfast.  Every Saturday buy a bunch of your favorite fruit, then on Sunday I chop it all up and throw it into a Tupperware and snack on it all week.  I do the same thing with veggies.

Lunch/Dinner:  I'm a tofu fanatic. Really.  My roommates don't appreciate it, but I LOVE tofu.  So, for lunch if I have classes or work all night I'll just make extra and eat the rest for dinner.  It's quick and easy that way.

For a successful vegan lunch/dinner you must have some delicious sauce.  I really like the Kikkoman Stir-fry and Teriyaki sauces, they're so delicious. Or you can make your own.  Nikko makes a boss Teriyaki sauce, but I don't have the recipe... He doesn't either.  Basically whip some soy sauce with brown sugar and other yummy smelling Asian spices and hope for the best.  Agave Nectar is good to use with less brown sugar if you're worried about your petite figure.

Cook up some bell peppers, onions, maybe some mushrooms, carrots, potato in a frying pan (I use a wok) then add your tofu.  Stir it up until the tofu is nice and warm.  Add your sauce, cover it.  Then serve over rice or whole-grain pasta.

Salads.  I love my leafy-greens.  Throw some Italian dressing over crunch lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and mushrooms and chow down.  Eat as much as you want.  Eat salad until you're sick.  It's better than eating Micky-D's until your sick.

I'm working on other recipes.  I don't dare share them without testing them first.  That's my rule.

Snacks:  Tupperware of fruit and veggies!  They're so easy to just go grab, sit in front of the TV and eat.  I have this things where I always need to be chewing on something (gum is good, but it gives me headaches) so I munch on celery.  I love celery.

Rice Puffs.  You know those delicious Quaker flavored-Styrofoam?  I eat those all the time.  They're fluffy and crunchy and just feel good in your stomach.  Make sure not to get a flavor that has any milk products in it.  Sometimes that can be tricky.  Cheddar cheese flavor=bad.

Granola.  I eat this by the pound.  I have an 8-pound bag in my cupboard and it's nearly half-way gone.  I bought it a month ago.  This is also really yummy for breakfasts. Granola and raspberries.

Margaritas.  No. Not the alcoholic kind.  Ice and raspberry margarita mix blended together.  YUM!  Or any slushie of any kind.  Mixing limeade and ice in a blender is really good too.

Popsicles.  Walmart has delicious lemon-lime pops for 1.96 a bag. There's 18 in a bag. Oh yeah! And they're massive.  I call them margarita sticks and I highly recommend them.

Desserts: I have found the best cookie recipe in the world.  It is VEGAN! They're called Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. This is the recipe.  I used veggie oil instead of canola oil, substitutions are pretty forgiving with this recipe.  When you go to bake them, press the round ball down a little better so they're flat, I think they taste better that way.

I like these because they're chocolate and vegan.  Vegan chocolate chips are so expensive and not worth it.


So that's my current life as a vegan.   I'm going to go make something new for lunch.  If it's delicious I'll post it tonight, if not. . . I'll try something else.

Facebook.

Okay.   Many of you are wondering why I'm disappearing from Facebook.  It's complicated.

First of all I don't need Facebook.
I don't need it to keep in touch with people.  I don't need hundreds of Facebook friends, because I'm not going to take these hundreds of friends through life with me.  Sorry, but that's the honest-to-goodness truth.

Second, Facebook is a time waster.
Ugh.  Social media is my downfall.  I'm not just getting rid of my Facebook, my twitter is disappearing, and so is my Tumblr.  *cringe*  I'm going to feel incredibly naked without my constant interaction with people I have never met, and will never meet.  So, I'm sorry buttercupthekittyjay and  calif0rnia-girl  I'm not going to be reblogging any of your posts anymore.  I'm sorry I'm going to give you a momentary mental breakdown when you realize you're missing a follower.  I'm sorry Facebook world, you won't be enlightened by my fabulous and witty posts every other day. I'm sorry dear, dear Twitter followers, my 140 characters of randomness will not be sent to your phone hour upon hour.

Third, I have better things to be doing.
Such as homework.  Meeting new people.  Reading my scriptures.  Tracking down door-bell ditchers. Making delicious vegan dishes.  Snuggling kittens.  Volunteering.  You know, important stuffs.  Just think about the hours the world spends on the internet every month, week, or even day.... We could be doing much better things... And actually making an impact.

Fourth, I'm going to make a difference.
I'm going to do that things I should be doing.  3 years from now I don't want my greatest accomplishment to be "I had over 1000 Facebook friends, or my tweet was re-tweeted by *insert famous person/corporation here (Ellen DeGeneres would be my dream re-tweeter)* I've been thinking about this lately, and I literally wrote out what I'm doing for the next two years.  I even planned my entire schedule up until my graduation in 2015 with an English Major- Technical Writing and Editing emphasis and a minor in Journalism/Communications- Public Relations emphasis. I am going to work all summer, work through school, then go with the International Language Program to China or Mexico the summer of 2014.  It's planned.  I have goals.  Facebook is only getting in my way.

Why am I still blogging/keeping friends on Facebook?
I'm keeping a record.  These are my thoughts. My crazy, random, sometimes insane thoughts.  There are some groups on Facebook I'd like to still be a part of, just for updates for future jobs and support. And, of course, my mother says she uses Facebook to keep tabs on me.   So, I guess I better give her one way to do that.  I don't need hundreds of friends.  A handful of people who are going to support me is all I need.

I don't want Facebook honestly.  I don't.  People didn't have it 8 years ago.  I think I will be just fine and connected without it.

This is my story.  This is my future.  Welcome back to my new life!

A Friday Rant

I can't believe it's September 28.  Where did this month go??

I mean, it feels like yesterday Kailey and I were screaming at the top of our lungs because we hit the "PURCHASE" button for our concert tickets.  That's tomorrow!! And tonight I'm heady to the Yucky/Blecky/Ewwwey  Y to watch the Hawaii game. . . GO HAWAII!!

I think I have a problem.  I'm sitting here with Facebook, Tumblr, Skype, Blogger, Grooveshark, Itunes, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 days playing.  Oh and my phone is sitting next on my lap.  I ALWAYS have to be doing something.  *twitch* I'm a technology addict.

But.  Last night I gave it all up.  I turned off my computer and TV and read a book.  Actually I read 2 books.  I'm so proud of myself.  Then I had karaoke night.  With myself.  Because that's what cool people do when nobody else is in their apartment.  A kitchen is so much better than a shower.  For the singing aspect.... not the "imma get naked and wash my hairs" aspect.  Keep that in the bathroom.

Okay. The new Mumford & Sons CD. AMAZING!!  I just love them in general...

Well, I'm going to go take my fall inspired nails (they're orange, but my ring finger is red) and make me some foods.  Yogurt, granola, and raspberries here I come!  I love you guys.  Thanks for reading. You're the best.

xoxo,
mo

p.s.
yeah... my ring finger is a tad demented... 
in elementary school i was legit.
bascially that means i was the only girl who
played sports with the boys during recess
i "sprained" my finger playing football
it looks like i broke it.
sprain. HA!

I have this growing obsession with those movies that requiere you to have subtitles in order to watch them.  I mean, it's gotten to the point where I don't even realize a movie isn't in English until someone gives me a weird look.  There are some really fantastic movies/documentaries out there in non-English.  I'd give you a fantastic list full of movies... But I've forgotten which ones I've watched. . . *sigh*

I do remember this one.  It's called "Boys Before Flowers" and it's every bit as bizarre as the title.  It's in Korean and so oddly addicting.  Just thinking about it makes me want to go watch the next episode.  If you have massive amounts of free time and are interested in Korea's most popular TV show, you should really check this out.  Then we can gossip about it together.  I mean, until Once Upon a Time comes back I don't think I can find anyone to gossip about my foreign documentaries about. (I LOVE Once Upon a Time. AHHHHHH)

Oh my goodness.  It's incredible how fast your phone will start working once you delete over 5,000 text messages off of it.  I feel like I have a brand new phone! Yay!

I'm going to go find something productive to do.  Something not involving Glee, 16 and Pregnant, Boys Before Flowers, or random documentaries in Icelandic.  I'll probably go eat a salad too.

Give Me Bacon!

Sometimes I get into these moods that are just down-right bizarre.  Seriously.

Exhibit A)
A bunch of people doorbell ditched my apartment.  Well, really?  How mature are you?  There's this thing called a peep-hole that I can look out of and see you're not there.  And yes, in the event you were actually the Keebler Elves and left me a delectable plate of cookies I opened the door. Nope.  Nada.  Squat.  I hate you.  My hopes were so high.  I can totally hear you snickering in the stairwell.  So I wrote you a note.  "GROW UP"  That's what it said.  I was tempted to write this though:

Dear fantastic people in lack of stimulating entertainment,
I am sorry you are so unfortunate you don't have boyfriends, 
but knocking on random doors hoping there is a boy behind it
is not going to get you closer to the one thing you desire the most:
a wedding.  Yes, you probably are the ripe old age of 19 and worried
that if you wait any longer you'll be out of the "ripe" years of 
child-bearing.  I have some advice for you.  First of all, you should 
knock on the doors of men.  Not me.  I'm a girl and I'm not even
single, so if for some reason you play for the other team.  Not going 
to happen.  Second of all you should at least deliver a tasty treat
to make up for the fact I had to haul my butt off the couch whilst
studying to figure out nobody was there.  Thirdly, if you're looking
for a man and you leave a treat, don't go with the cliche' cupcakes
or cookies.  Go for something manly.  Leave a plate of sizzling hot
bacon.  Come on, who wouldn't fall in love with you if you left
a plate of bacon at their door?  Fourthly, grow some lady balls and
just stand at the door with your bacon in person.  There's no need
to run away.  I'm sure there's a boy desperate enough to accept
you and your bacon for who you are.  He'd probably like to picture
the face that gave him a piping hot slab of pig.  If you need anymore
relationship advice give me a ring.  I'll accept tickets to Thriller or 
the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as my payment.
Thank you.
Your neighbor in 303

Yeah, I'm going to go tape this on my door now.

Exhibit B)
I ran into my door.  Like full on *BAM* into my closed door.  Who does that??  That's not the most embarrassing part though... As my Nasal cavity impacted the solid oak/pine/random tree plank the first thing that popped into my head was "OH NO!! Dobby sealed the entrance to the platform!! How am I going to get to Hogwarts now?!"  Somebody please help me.  I've never been obsessed with Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings, or Doctor Who.  *cringe*  Am I turning into one of "them"? (I respect them.  They devote more of their life to the above 3 shows than I did to debate and AP gov... and that's A LOT of devotion.)  I prefer Glee currently.  I'm a gleek.  hehe.

Exhibit C)
You just read this post didn't you?  You now understand.

Give Me Chestnuts Roasting

Sometimes my hair is so weird. I like it.

I WANT CHRISTMAS.
Seriously.
I want it here.
Now.
So bad.
Or....
Maybe just an extensive playlist of Christmas music looped for hours on end.d
My roommates would kill me.
I'm so on it. 
October 1st is offically
"Christmas Music Marathon in Apartment 303"
Yes.
It's offical.
I love it.
When I compile the perfect playlist I'll share it.

I'M VEGAN!!

Once upon a time I decided to become vegan.  That lasted 5 minutes.  But I pretended, guess what we ate?!

Yes. These are vegan. If. . . You use dairy-free chocolate. *Sigh*




I didn't have dairy-free chocolate.




My Vegan-ism literally lasted 5 minutes.  But they can be vegan and they're gluten free. How legit am I? They're seriously little clouds of chocolate heaven.



Then I made my Vegan dinner.  It's delicious. I actually eat this a ton. . .  Basically it's whole grain pasta, pesto, zucchini, tomato, celery, and spinach.  Sooooo good. We live off of this.

I've figured out what I will eat as a college student. . . So if anyone is feeling generous and wants to send a fantastic package to some cool girl to PO BOX 4770 150 east College Ave Ephraim, Utah and has some strange desire to pack food into the box these are great:
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
Honey Nut Cheerios
Dark Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast
Whole Grain Pasta
Zucchini
Canned Tomatoes
Popcorn
Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup
Limeade Pops (Commonly referred to as "Margarita Sticks")
Dried Apples
Starbursts
Emergen-C Packets (in raspberry, tangerine is icky)
Hot Chocolate
Teriyaki Sauce

Yup. 
That is literally all I eat.  
It's delicious. *Yummmm*

Dear Toesies,
Please warm up, 
don't fall off.  I like you.
