Huh. This Feels Strange.

"You take the breath right out of me, left a hole where my heart should be. You gotta fight just to make it through, because I will be the death of you." --Breath, Breaking Benjamin

I don't know that you still read this, but I had a dream the other night that something bad happened to you, and I hope you're doing okay. I know that should you read this, you'll probably be upset in some way. Please don't be. Itunes just played this song and it kind of hit me like a brick. I hope you're doing well and that you're happy. :)

Season One, Episode Six

"Not knowing how to feel is not the same as not feeling anything." --Mandy Patinkin [As Jason Gideon, Criminal Minds]

This show always has such great quotes. :)

Day 11--Another Picture of You and Your Friends

Okay, so I'm cheating on this one. But I had to include two pictures. :) This first one is of Allie and I at her IU orientation on Friday. We skipped out on the 'financing college' and 'the dorm experience' parts of it to play in the fountain. We had a blast. :) I'm happy this girl is around. We always have fun together. :D

This was taken the same day as the last one, only about 5 hours later. Chelsea and I wanted to go be freshman for the day, so we took pictures by the fountain. We're adorable, I know. :)

Day 10--Songs you Listen to When...

You're happy: The go to song when I'm happy at the moment is "Give a Little"--Hanson. This song is one of those songs that just makes me want to dance. I love listening to it when I'm in a good mood. :)

You're sad: "Dreamed I Could Fly (Dreamin' About You)"--Gary Joe Foster w/ 2XL. For those of you who don't know, that would be my father. If I'm ever sad or unhappy about anything, chances are you will hear this song blaring from my computer or my earbuds. It just makes me feel better to hear a song I love. My dad wrote it when I was little. There's debate as to what the meaning behind it is, but I have a general idea. It's a sweet song, and it just makes me happier.

You're bored: Does putting my itunes on shuffle count? If I'm bored, that's what I do. The song it just started playing was "Who I Am"--Jessica Andrews. Because this was probably cheating, I'll give you a great story attached to this song. When I was little, my two best friends and I would play this song as loud as our parents would let us and sing to it. Sometimes for hours. To Samantha and Jessie, I miss you both. :)

You're mad: This is one of my new favorite songs, "Revolution"--Flogging Molly. It's a song about Detroit and its current economic situation. [It's awful, by the way. In case you hadn't noticed] The band actually named themselves a "Detroit" band after Dave King and his wife Bridget Regan [both members of the band] moved to Detroit, Bridget's hometown. Their newest album [Speed of Darkness, highly recommended.] has a lot of songs about the turmoil that Detroit is facing. This song in particular talks about how the city is losing jobs, and members of the community as a consequence. The song talks about the struggle that the working class of Detroit is currently dealing with. The song is the anthem of the city, in my opinion. I love it.

You're hyped: This one is really hard. If I chose based on my play count in itunes though, it'd be "Tonight, Tonight"--Hot Chelle Rae. This is another one of those songs that I turn up and dance around to, usually when I'm getting ready for the day. It's a great song.

Season Five, Episode Three

"You told me you were cleared to fly. You lied."--Hotch

"No, I'm a doctor, so technically it's not a lie."--Reid

"So what was it then?"--Garcia

"A second opinion..."--Reid

"You're my bitch now."--Garcia

I love this show. :D

Day 9--Something I'm Proud of in the Past Few Days

Uh. I woke up at 6:30 on my day off to go to Allie's orientation with her?

I doubt that counts. Let's think.

I've been responsible about spending money. I've managed to save enough to both pay my bills and have a good time next weekend. I'm pretty proud of that.

That reminds me, I have to pay my phone bill today. Pardon me while I go do that.

Day 8--Short Term Goals for the Month and Why

Short term goals:

1. Start packing. I move in exactly one month from today, and I have done absolutely nothing. That's not good.

2. Have the most amazing weekend in West Lafayette for Beef's 21st. We'll go ahead and check that one off the list now, because I know it's going to be the best weekend ever.

3. Go to the financial aid office to straighten out this paper nonsense.

4. Put the Glee soundtrack onto discs for F.Money.

5. Call my mom on her birthday.

6. See my Munchkin? :)

Day 7--Someone Who Has Had A Large Impact on You [Recently]

I'll dedicate this one to you, since you leave next week. I doubt you know exactly how much I learned from you. Ask me one day, I'll tell you. Anyway, you have turned into one of the coolest people I've ever met, and you've impacted my life more than I ever thought you would. You're awesome. Thank you. :D

Day 6--Your Favorite Superhero and Why

This is a really hard question to answer, and I debated it for a long time. Each have their own things that make them sufficiently bad ass. Here's my final decision though:

Why? He kicks ass and takes names all without the aid of super powers. He just uses gadgets and some serious skill. That makes him the top superhero in my book.

Day 5--A Photo of Somewhere You've Been

Busch Gardens. I go here every time I go to Florida. This is where my cousin Deryk and I go to hang out. It's one of my favorite places for that reason. We always have such profound conversation while waiting in line for this very ride. The Sheikra. It's probably my favorite coaster in the park. I guess there's a new one though, so I'll have to try that one out when I'm there in November.

On another note, I miss Florida. I usually go every year for spring break, but that didn't happen this year. I decided to go for Deryk's graduation, that didn't happen either. I'm going for Thanksgiving. I will. It's the first purchase I'm making after my kickback check gets here. I will not postpone this trip any longer. I miss my family. I miss the fun I have down there. I will go. :D

Day Four--A Habit You Wish You Didn't Have.

I bite my nails. It's awful, and I know it. When my nails are painted, they don't get touched. I'm much to lazy to keep up with that though, so I am a nail biter. Worse things have happened though, right?

Day Three--A Picture of you and Your Friends

Kayla and Jen.
These two have been the best friends a person can have.
I love them both.
This is a picture from a couple weeks ago when they came to B-Town to see Josh Kelley. :)
They are the greatest! :)

Season 4, Episode 19

"I want to see the good in people. I choose to see the good in people. Getting into someone's mind and trying to find the god awful thing that happened to them that caused them to do that god awful thing to somebody else has seriously impaired my ability to giggle, it makes my brain all wonky, and I don't like it." --Kristen Vangsness [Penelope Garcia, Criminal Minds]

I am much too obsessed with this show. The scarier part? I'm completely okay with that.

Day Two--The Meaning Behind Your Blog Name

"Living life, laughing the whole time"

My Blog name has changed several times since I've created it. I chose this one recently [about a week ago]. I chose it because it's always been kind of how I live. I'm not the kind of person who lets the little things [or sometimes even big things] get in my way. I don't let the things life presents me with stop me from living the way I want to live. So, I live my life, and laugh at the things it throws at me.

30 Days of Blogging

You know, I really liked that 30 day photo challenge thing that I did a while ago. I'm going to do something similar to that again. It's not entirely photos, so it's a little different. :)
