30 Day Challenge: Days 21 & 22
so, i had quite the adventure traveling back to chicago, which i will blog about later. maybe. but that means i’m behind on the 30 day challenge again. so here goes. Day 21: One of your favorite shows how i met your mother. it’s consistently hilarious (and by that i mean the writing AND acting are consistent. over 5+seasons. that’s skillz) and it’s just a really well...
30 Day Challenge: Day 20
How important you think education is so fucking important. SO IMPORTANT. the sad part is, this country seems to treat it like it doesn’t matter. which is why 90% of americans are dumb.
The annual toast-post
usually i do this kind of thing on facebook, but i like tumblr better…so i’m posting it here and just linking everyone to it. this year was really shitty at first—mostly cause i’m dumb in some ways. but it’s been wonderful since about august, when i moved to chicago. so, without further ado: here’s to 2010! here’s to: new year’s eve in chile with...
Every time I see you lookin my way/ ooh, baby baby, can’t you hear my...– Herman’s Hermits “Can’t You Hear My Heart Beat”
Maybe It's Just Me...: before i start playing... →
maybeitsjustme: i just want to say that life is precious. life is wonderful. life is unpredictable. so please, go out and life your own. it’s going to only get weirder and wilder from this point on, so please, don’t sit in your little bubble and listen and follow what you have been taught or told your whole life…
30 Day Challenge: Day 19
Disrespecting your parents i’ve always been “the good one.” i don’t really do anything to disrespect them. mostly because i respect them (ok, mostly my mom) immensely. i leave the rebellion to my younger sister. she’s better at it anyway.
30 Day Challenge: Day 17 & 18
so it’s christmas. i’m behind, we’ve been celebrating. also i was awake for over 24 hours yesterday because of traveling and my being dumb, so i was real tired when it came time to do this. so, merry christmas! here’s the next few challenge things. Day 17: Your highs and lows this year. Highs: going to Chicago finally, straight A’s at columbia, writing, getting...
30 Day Challenge: Day 16
Your views on mainstream music i agree with jeselyn on this one: this is a lame ass question, wtf 30 day challenge? i hardly ever listen to current mainstream music. i don’t like the radio cause commercials and dj’s are annoying as fuck. also, most of the time, the music’s crap. a large portion of my music collection was made before 1980, and i like it that way. for some...
30 Day Challenge: Day 15
Your favorite Tumblrs i don’t really have any favorites. i follow a few cool ones, but usually it’s just for the pretty/funny pictures. ilovecharts is a good one, and fuckyeahchicago and cornersoftheworld. that’s all i can think of right now
30 Day Challenge: Day 14
Your earliest memory hmmmm….i have a pretty crazy memory. right now my earliest memory that i can think of is from when i was about 3 or 4 and at a babysitter’s house…her daughter was freaking out because one of the kids had had oreos in her bed during naptime or something. i was awake because i was bad at taking naps even then.
30 Day Challenge: Day 13
Somewhere you’d like to move or visit I want to see everywhere, but right now i would totally live in london. i want to go to Australia and New Zealand and most of western Europe. i want to see everything.
30 Day Challenge: Day 12
Bullet your whole day so: 12:00am-3:45am: still at becky’s for the yule ball. pierre, rach, and danielle left, but erin, meg, and i stay and talk to becky about everything in the world (but mostly boys, cause apparently we’re all still 16 at heart) untill 3:45 3:45am-4:10am: erin, meg, and i leave becky’s. meg walks us to clark street, where erin and i wait for the bus ...

30 Day Challenge: Day 10
Discuss your first love and first kiss I have not been in love. well, not with anyone real who returned the feelings, which i feel should be requisites for being “in love.” my first kiss was shitty, along with a couple other firsts that night, but at the time, i thought it was awesome. i was 19, on my first date ever, and we were in his basement room watching pen and teller’s...
30 Day Challenge: Day 9
How you hope your future will be like that is the most awkward, grammatically incorrect sentence ever. and i think a version of this question was already asked on like day 3. awesome, meme, way to go. i hope my future is happy. i hope i’m not alone. i hope i get published. the end.
30 Day Challenge: Day 8
A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life i have actually been having a series of extremely satisfying days for awhile now. i love it. i’m trying to just stay positive about my life; i’m tired of being negative. i’ve been having a hard time with it today (i felt like a shitty, shitty writer) but lately, i’ve been feeling pretty good. i belong to my writing group...
Do you believe in rock and roll?/ Can music save your mortal soul?/ And can you...– Don McLean “American Pie”
This is my final piece for my Fiction I. It’s already turned in, but if you guys have comments/suggestions, leave a comment! “Here we are,” Jim said, shifting his squad car into park in front of a sketchy looking old building that my best friend was supposedly living in now. “Thanks Jim. You guys wanna come up for a drink?” Sara asked as she climbed out of the front...
30 Day Challenge: Day 7
Your zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality I’m a Scorpio. Sometimes I think it fits, sometimes it doesn’t. Usually I think it’s bullshit.
You know it’s gonna make it that much better/when we can say goodnight and...– The Beach Boys, “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” Pet Sounds
30 Day Challenge: Day 6
Write 30 interesting facts about yourself I don’t know if i can do this. I don’t find myself that interesting, really. but this is a challenge, so i should challenge myself also, i really have no idea what to write for my final. 1) I’m a very skilled procrastinator. exhibit a: this. exhibit b: i was up till 4am, word doc up and everything; i spent the entire time talking to...
30 Day Challenge: Day 5
A time you thought about ending your life I have honestly never thought about committing suicide. I’ve been fairly depressed, but never suicidal.
30 Day Challenge: Day 4
Your views on religion i believe in a higher power. most of the time. but i think religion is bullshit. it just makes people idiotic lemmings who follow whatever their leaders say, even if it’s totally cruel. i feel like it makes people think for themselves less, which is just awful.
30 Day Challenge: Day 3
Your views on drugs and alcohol mmm alcohol. drugs=bad. well. most of them. i don’t see what the fuss is about weed (on either side of the argument). anything harder than that is kind of “omg” for me but i know people who have done them and they’re (mostly) fine. i mostly think that the nonaddictive stuff (if there is such thing) should be used sparingly. the addictive,...
30 Day Challenge: Day 2
Where you’d like to be in 10 years I want to be published. I want to be writing. I want to not have to get up every day at weird hours for a job I hate. And by that I mean I want to be writing for a living not just cause I enjoy it. Personally: At least a boyfriend. Other than that…I’m not too worried. I will go where I need/want to go. Hopefully I’ll be living somewhere...
30 Day Challenge: Day 1
Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is. Technically, I’m single. I’ve got a internet thing, but nothing is ever guaranteed, and distance complicates it. So we’re allowed to date other people if it comes up. No one’s interested in me in real life usually; he’s used the date other people thing once. I freaked out, but it’s better now. ...
