i love you but you're just..umm..what's the word..

well i don't mean to be rude about this, i really hope no one is offended.....but
what is it with our love of older men?

i mean look at these two...have you ever seen a more perfect couple?
she must just looove stroking that thing on top of his head. anyone know where he imported this one from?
anyway....
not saying i will EVER stoop too this gold diggerish of a level (insert kanye here) BUT there is something about older guys. or is it just me? i hate it.
i think somewhere along the way i became a fresh-off-the-mish magnet. why???? ahhh
i am so grateful they went on missions.
i recognize they are more spiritually enlightened than me.
i understand that if the second coming was tomorrow they'd be probably 13x better off.
but...socially they are still 19.
the other night this kid was reminiscing sentimentally about high school. he said he felt he could relate to the 18 year old girls in his ward because, after all, he feels like an 18 year old kid himself!
oh no!!!!!!!
then i had another embarrrrassing experience. on a date with a fresh-off-the-mishie, and i said
"when my brother got off his mission he was such a dork! he kept his hair parted for so long, we finally had to have a talk with him to get him to change it."
to which he replied
"oh. i stopped parting my hair a week ago."
ahhhh hahaha. i felt awful! we laughed about it but STILL.
then suddenly i'm so self conscious about every potential sin i could have committed during the course of the evening.
uhhh did i put on my seat belt?
crap, i said freak.
ahh i'm worldly. i know he thinks i'm worldly!
hahaha oh the joyyyssss of dating.
you marrieds miss it, i know you do. just admit it.


anyway.
today i made myself write down a list of 10 good things about living with your parents, JUST YOUR PARENTS at age 20.
it only took 3 hours. kidding!
such a little optimist aren't i??

thom yorke is brilliant.


if you haven't already, GET THIS MUSIC. also....DON'T BUY THIS BOOK.

i loved her novel, the lovely bones, although it dealt with some pretty intense subject matter. i got this one in london thinking it would be a good read for the plane ride home. perhaps i should have read SOMETHING about it before buying it. here's what the first line says.

"when all is said and done, killing my mother came easily."

ummmmm no thank you. i tried to be 'open minded' and read more of it but i just couldn't quite swallow it. but the cover looked so smooth and beautiful :( i guess all that 'don't judge a book by its cover' stuff really is true huh?

fun times with betsita...

so....just so people know: I AM NOT DEPRESSED.
i have had a few unhappy moments lately, and i think people seem to read into this whole blogging thing a littttle too much.
maybe people aren't used to reading a blog that isn't happy cheerful and cuuuutesy all the time?
rule of thumb: if i write it on my blog, it's not that serious.
ANYWAY.

this week i got to help the lovely betsita broadwater with her advertising video. needless to say, we spent most the day laughing instead of working...she is so creative, her mind works in ways mine would never even dream! i'm sure she will make it. here are some of the stills.
haha
this girl can do some insane things on skis. this was one of the less insane but still funny moments.


it was slightly blinding outside, which meant i got to wear my fabulous sunglasses i got in camden :)
she just loooved this outfit.
love it.
this is confusing...but she is so creative, you have to see the video to get it, which she won't let me post!

who else do you know that would do something like this?
she seriously collected probably 100 tube maps and made a bracelet out of them. only you bets.


this just gives you an idea of how hard it was to be serious....haha i was laying in this awkward corner, trying to get this terrible angle. i sound insane though eh?
her video turned out fabulous (thanks to the incredible john holman) and she tells me she's putting it on her blog so go look at it! betsy lynn broadwater.

back. just like britney.


comeback # 13!!!!
so she went crazy and shaved her head.
give the girl a break, i'd do the same if jt broke up with me.
any thoughts on her latest hits?
i'm still in the i'll-listen-to-it-when-i-workout-but-i-hate-myself-for-it phase.

anyway...

umm. so i thought of a new name for my blogggg.
i know all you marrieds reallly love your hubbies and i'm sure i'll brag about mine too someday...actually i kind of hope i don't. haha jk but there you go.

so the past few days have been somewhat of an emotional rollercoaster.
yesterday i had a little breakdown...
at one point i may have been driving the expedition, by myself, listening to some emo tunes, perhaps crying, yelling 'I HATE IT HERE! I HATE IT SO MUCH!'
haha. i'm a stable person i promise.
but then today the sun came out and just changed everything...
advertising is the best major in the world.
i'm not sure if it's normal to love your classes this much, but i seriously do.
keep in mind this is before any of the stress of the semester has set in... but honestly, how did i get so lucky?
i love being pushed to be innovative.
i love how ugly the brimhall is.
i love how witty/intelligent/aware the people in the brimhall are.
i love feeling like i maybe, just might have, (cross your fingers), found my niche
i know it's going to take a lot of work and i have a lot to learn...but i'm excited to learn it. and i want to.
yayyyyyy.
