You know how I was going to go to bed an hour ago? Well...I got this call from a certain Mr. Wakefield...

I wish I could say exactly what just happened. I'll explain in the next few days, I think.
Let me just say that ballroom is never lacking for drama.



I am done.

With individuals.

We shall see.

Sometimes, it is just hard.

"This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now."

-President Thomas S. Monson

sneaky sneaky

I would love to own these:Or these:

Just saying.

inspired by the sheetless bed in my room

Miss Laura just tagged me to fill out this little survey, and thank goodness, because I can't seem to come up with anything to say lately. :)

What is your current obsession?

Well...there's always the ongoing blogging obsession, and more recently farmer's markets and etsy shops. Oh! Sneakers! I might have to do a post on that later.

Coffee or tea?

Haha. Neither. Although I must admit apple cinnamon herbal tea is pretty darn good (thanks to the 10th grade tea party and croquet tournament for that piece of knowledge).

What's for dinner?

Uh...tonight? Wedding reception food? Although I'll probably throw something small together before we go. I really like food.

What was the last thing you bought?

A pepperjack cheese and ham sandwich from the Cougareat. Sooo delicious.

What are you listening to right now?

The hum of the swamp cooler in my very empty apartment (Kellie, come back!!!).

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I would much rather have gelato than ice cream and my favorite gelato flavors are hazelnut, alpen caramel, and donatella. As for ice cream...that one chocolate and raspberry one that Kellie loves is pretty darn addicting. Same with moosetracks.

What is your favorite color?

Blue and green. They're both favorites. (Brian Regan anyone...?)

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?

Oh man. Well. I love my:
loose gray vest from Urban Outfitters that I may have worn with just about every shirt I own...
hot pencil skirt with leopard lining from Express
my splatter paint NYC tee I bought while on tour
all of my skinny jeans
my Limited Too knit unwaterproof boots
my gold braid headband from Forever XXI
my fabric stud earrings shown in a post below.
They'd make one heck of an ugly outfit, but they're all my favorites. :)

What is your dream job?

Running my own research lab in some exotic location, having full freedom to research whatever I wanted.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up?

I don't press the snooze button. I turn off my alarm and then fall back asleep...and miraculously become conscious enough to get ready in time (or at least not super late...)

Pikachu! I choose you!!!



Now go and fill it out yourselves. :P

A cat may look at a king.

What do I feel right now?
I have no idea...but I wish I did.

Two things:

1. Being a single parent would be seriously difficult.
2. "Star Trek" is unbelievably awesome.

I think I have a good post brewing inside of me. I'll see if I can disconjoin (Josh, that was for you) my thoughts tomorrow.

and on a happier note, can I just say that I absolutely love these letters?

Like, I wish I had written these:


Deconstruct: what you think you know about life and love.
I´m slipping through your fingers like sand. Please, Please, Please… Tighten your grip.

— anonymous


Waiting for us is like waiting for a 9 in minesweeper. I’m not sure if I will ever get it, but something tells me if I spend enough time, avoid all the right mines … I’ll find you.

— M, the geek

Simply adorable.

the most human color

Wow, weirdest feeling ever.
I'm sitting here in my deconstructed room as Kellie starts packing up and I'm reading blogs and I read Alyssa's post about missing Europe and I have this terrible feeling that I will never get there. I almost started to cry...totally out of the blue. ("blue lips, blue veins, blue-the color of our planet from far, far away" fav song of the moment)

I have more than enough money to go to France just sitting in my bank account. And all of a sudden I'm scared to death that it'll all get spent up on ballroom shoes, rent, food, movie tickets, lessons, etc...


Is it awful that sometimes I think that once I'm done with ballroom my life will really start? That once I no longer have rehearsals and competitions I can finally focus on chemistry and actually do an internship or study abroad?

How much longer can I pull off sticking an appendage in every pool?

Latest Obsession

All of a sudden I'm really into etsy and super cute homemade trinkets. I think it all started with the Rockstar Diaries blog and then was further nourished by my visits to the farmer's market.

I know, I know, I hate music on blogs, but...

Have a listen.
takes about 20 seconds to start...

we all know how i can't seem to take a normal self portrait...

I apologize for the lack of photos of the hair...a tragic accident occurred while I was kayaking at Moose Creek (more on that mini vacay later) this weekend: my camera got dipped in the water. I'm waiting for it to dry out so I can upload some photos, that is if it still works. Meh.
In the meantime...

And still getting used to it...

no more dumb blonde jokes...?

As of today at 2:00 I'll be following up on my "what should I do with my hair?" poll...

I'm dying it chestnut brown...and taking off a good 3-4 inches...

Photo to come...

if I like it enough to keep it. :)
