Bowling. I wish I were better at this. I love it. I think bowling is fun. I am possibly the worst bowler this world has ever seen, though. It's pathetic how bad I am. If I was just a tiny bit better at this, that would make it a little less embarrassing. :D
CT Words cannot describe how much I wish I had never ever met her. It still amazes me how I could have thought so highly of someone one minute, only to find myself being terrorized by them in the next. We had a great friendship, once upon a time. That is something I don't really want to forget. But all in all, I think my life would be exponentially better off had we never spoken to each other.
Dublin, Ireland. Ireland, in general, really. It is my life's goal to travel to this country. I don't really have a good justification as to why aside from, it's beautiful. And, I'm a sucker for cute boys with accents. :)
Dear Cousin, I love our endless conversations on trying to pinpoint our relation. We solved that riddle back in March though, shame. I am so very excited to come see you graduate in June! It's going to be so much fun. I miss you, cuz!
The Crip. Now, let me explain this one. I want to be exceedingly clear that I am [on most days] 100% comfortable and happy with exactly who I am, crip and all. But it'd be silly to let you think that there aren't days where I think "hmm.. I wonder if this would work out better if I didn't have this issue?" It's a part of me, and I embrace it better than any person would assume. I am who I am, and I'm okay with that. But there are those days where it can get me down, so, I'd say it's my biggest insecurity.
Laelah Renae. My niece. She's 8 months old. She has definitely changed my life. I didn't know how much I liked babies until she came around. I love her. I can't look at her without smiling. It's great.
Grandpa. To put it simply, he said, "Don't fail out of college and I will be very proud of you." Before I went off to college, he sent me a letter telling me how proud he was of me and that he wanted me to do well in life. And that, kids, is the most inspiring thing anyone can tell me.
My Dad. I mean, let's face it, without him, I would have no life to possibly imagine living in without him. But seriously, I have been a daddy's girl since birth. I will be til the day I die. I can't imagine not having him around. I love my dad. :)
Sara Bareilles. Rather than go with my favorite band of all time, which--for those of you who don't know--is Flogging Molly (23 days!), I went with my current musical obsession. That is presently Ms. Sara Bareilles. Kaleidoscope Heart is a fantastic album. I love how delightfully bubbly she is. It makes for great music to get ready to. Kudos. :)
Broken Hearts. I definitely hate these. They aren't good for anyone, ever. My heart goes out to everyone struggling with one. Everything WILL get better. And to you, I love you. I love you a lot. I got your back girl. Always.
Kayla. I think this goes without saying. She and I have gotten into so many shenanigans together. Case and point? This picture right here. Taco Bell. Her 20th birthday, i.e. GREATEST WEEKEND EVER. Seriously though, I know that if I want to have a fun time, filled with questionable activity, and more importantly, epic coloring, I call her. Love ya, Beef. :D Chelsea. Once again, I feel like this picture totally symbolizes our friendship. It just so happens that we are laughing over the word 'cookie', which represents a day filled with crazy things that we got ourselves into. She is my 'IU best friend', but she is also that person that I can ALWAYS have fun with, no matter what the occasion. I can always count on her to be there when I get myself into some ****** up situations. :D
So, I cheated again. But really, how am I supposed to capture both of these two and how they each bring out the best/worst in me with just one picture? Cant do it. Anyways.
My Family. While I could think of a couple people who have helped me get through a lot in the more recent months, the ones who have ALWAYS been there have been my family. Not all of them are represented in this picture, obviously, but these people in addition to my brother Sean and my Dad are the ones who keep me sane when things get a little too insane. I love all of you. :)
Bowling Night 2011 I knew as soon as I saw what I had to post today, that the picture had to come from this night. This is because I don't know that I've laughed harder at any other point in time, at least recently.
Picture #1 This is Chelsea and Jory. I believe they were high-fiving after their group effort at bowling. Both bowled at the same time? maybe? Jory was clearly excited about this. Picture #2. I have to have two pictures, because one just simply didn't do it for me. This picture is one of Jory attacking me, for a reason I know not of. We apparently thought it was funny. Look at our faces.
Kylee & Chelsea's Couch. Okay, so this isn't MINE, but it is definitely the most treasured thing to me. Why? This couch is always open to me. It always has been. I suppose this is a more a reflection on how this apartment is always open to me, no matter what. When stuff got bad last semester, this is where I slept. I would have died without this place to go. So, it is my most favorite item. Thank you, C-Wikka and Kylee. Love you guys!
Guy Fieri Food Network Superstar Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Guy's Big Bite. And some Tailgating show that I have yet to see. The main reason I would like to trade places with him for a day is solely for his Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives job. I would love nothing more than to travel the country finding hole in the wall restaurants that specialize in making quirky, awesome foods. How cool would that be? I could bring fame to the next Peanut Butter Burger. :)
Beef's 20th Birthday Weekend. Does this picture not speak for itself? This was actually taken the day after Kayla's birthday. This night was fun, to say the least. I love hanging out with her. And let's not forget Jen. Those two are my favorite people ever. Any memory with them is a definite favorite.
While I have not known her quite as long as I've known Sam, Kayla has been my beef for a long long time. We have had some really qtastic times together, and I refuse to imagine how my life would be without her around. Again, We have not been close the longest, but she really needs to be a part of this topic. Love ya, Beef!!
A picture of you and the person you've been closest to for the longest: Samantha.
Sam and I have been friends since.. 3rd grade? 8, 9? Something like that. A really long time. We were 14 in this picture, this was taken the day I moved to Indiana. Sad day, indeed. She has always been one of the people that I know I can call for whatever reason. She may live in Georgia, and It may have been since my 15th birthday that we last saw each other, but i can say that we're still quite close. I love her to bits. :)
This is a spreading around facebook like wildfire. anyway. its a 30 day photo challenge. I like the idea.
