Those of you who know me know that I'm a little bit obsessed with my music. I always have a song of the week, I always have music on in my car and I rarely go anywhere without my iPod. I have a million songs I could pick for each of these categories so I think it will be best if I list 2-3 songs for each category... just be aware they constantly change so these are just as of now.
- Hey Soul Sister, Train
- Rhythm of Love, Plain White T's
- Humans, The Scene Aesthetic
- Wait for a Miracle, Jason Castro
- Perfectly Lonely, John Mayer
- Vanilla Twilight, Owl City
- Tribute, Tenacious D
- Hello Seattle, Owl City
- The Distance, Cake
- Crazy Beautiful Life, Ke$ha
- Hey Baby, Pitbull
- Make It Up As You Go, Plain White T's
- Mean, Taylor Swift
- Gives You Hell, All American Rejects
This picture is definitely one that makes me laugh! It was at Sea World during our family trip before Garrett left on the mish. This ride is journey to atlantis and it's this insane boat/roller coaster ride... I don't know how much I liked it. It was freezing already that day and we decided getting wet wouldn't really make a difference. We did get soaked but it was a fun memory and thanks to Amanda we have this awesome picture. I love this picture so much. It totally makes me laugh because if you look at all of us we're all having such a good time... we're smiling laughing and it's just the greatest. I love it!

I know this picture is rather old but it's the first one that came to mind. My brother and Sister have had a huge impact on my life. They are my best friends! They have been with me through everything and always have my back. I know that if I ever need anything these guys are my number 1. I have so much fun with them and I wish I could spend more time than I already do with them. Amanda and Garrett, thanks for keeping me going and being the amazing people you are! You've helped me more than you will ever know.
Oh the adventures we partake in when we step onto the shuttle. You never know what you will experience that day as you are quickly whisked away on the bumpy road. Grumpy drivers, disgusting smells and praying you don't die are regular occurrences. You must be aggressive if you wish to obtain a seat and also beware of the awkward eye contact that so often you are confronted with. We have obtained many stories from these interesting shuttle rides. My favorites are as follows:
We're not in London anymore.....
One day as we were proceeding back up to the dorms we were passing by the stadium. If you've ever been up to the U, you would that the road is very narrow and is sufficiently filled with 2 lanes and a trax track in the middle [keep in mind there are cement barriers on either side of said track] Jenna, Jess, and I were enjoying our normal friendly banter when I look over and catch a glimpse of a car driving next to us.... wait, a car driving next to us? On this road? wait, they're going the wrong way. THEY'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!!!!!!! In hopes of showing Jessica and Jenna this I blurted out that the car was going the wrong way. I'm positive that everyone on the shuttle heard me and possibly the car behind us. It was then that everyone began enjoying this abnormal show. It was soon after this that we noticed a car going down the road [the correct way] unknowingly heading into a potential head on collision. Goobenpucky driving the other car finally realizes he is not in London anymore and throws his car into reverse and starts backing down the road hoping not to get hit. I am not sure exactly how the ending of this story pans out because we continued on our voyage back to the HC.
Trax vs Shuttle....
On another wonderful day coming back from Human Development, the usual crowd was on the shuttle. The thing about the shuttles is that since there are so many people crammed on [it's like a human game of Tetris] you can't see a thing except for the behind of the person currently located centimeters away from your face. This results in no view of what lies ahead. This particular day we were traveling towards upper campus. In order to reach this destination you must brave the round-about. When we approached the round-about the rail road crossing signals started to flash. As usual when the signs start flashing, the arms come down. Well the bus driver we had that day was very bright and decided to stop in the middle of entering the round-about. Next thing we hear? The rail road arm slamming down on the top of the shuttle not just once it kept hitting it and bouncing up and hitting it again. Finally our driver decided to continue in the round-about rather than puncture the roof of the shuttle, and off we went.
An unidentified speed bump....
The latest and greatest occurrence on the shuttle happened today. After prancing down president's circle we were lucky to catch the blue shuttle. We boarded and so kindly the driver decided to proceed on his route before we were seated. This results in us appearing extremely uncoordinated - good thing there were only about 4 other people on the shuttle. As we headed back towards the dorms we acquired many more passengers as expected. As we were approaching the stop before the institute, the entire right side of the bus goes up what seemed to be 3 feet and everyone is shuffled around the shuttle. It was very unexpected and scared Jess immensely - enough that she grabbed my arm in order to not fly off the bench. Note to driver: Pedestrians don't make the greatest speed bumps.
A picture that shows the true me? Well that was kind of a difficult one but here's the one I fancied. I guess this shows the true me because I'm always doing random things. Hauling Erik around Disney Land is just one example of this. This picture always makes me laugh mainly because of the memories behind it.... MASECA!!!!!! I guess it shows the true me in a sense that I love to mess around and have fun. I love smiling and being with family and I always enjoy a good laugh. Nothing beats uncontrollable, ab workout laughter.
So I guess by the stereotypical definition of superhero I'd have to choose BatMan as my favorite. Why? Probably because it is honestly one of the only superhero movies I've seen and actually loved. The Dark Knight is possibly one of the greatest movies made to date. I was shocked when I went and wanted to go again. To this day I still love watching the movie and it never gets old to me. BatMan is simply amazing.
Somewhere I've been? Paris. I was lucky enough to go last year so Garrett could show us around. It was pretty fun and made for quite the adventure.
Me and Garrett on top of the Eiffel Tower
Crepes... the best meal ever!
After climbing to the top of the Arc ... we were tired
Going down to the catacombs
In the catacombs... it was honestly pretty disturbing and depressing for that matter.
Les Miserables. It was flat out amazing!
Well, when it comes to crazy, me and Jess are off the charts. We're pretty amazing and unique by ourselves, but when you throw the two of us together.... watch out world! There's no stopping us. We definitely have some of the most memorable times EVER together. Ever since we became friends we were always out for an adventure whether it was four-wheeling, midnight Wal-Mart runs, or just blasting Kesha in the car. With our irrepressible laughter every time we're together, we are without a doubt, crazy! If you're ever having a bad day you can count on Jess to make you feel better in an instant. She'll have you laughing in no time. She is really my truest craziest bestest friend! I can't even imagine life without her now. She has been there for me countless times. She is always willing to do anything for me and goes out of her way to make sure I'm doing okay. She is always up for my crazy ideas and comes up with plenty herself. She really is the greatest friend anyone could ever ask for!!! Our next adventure in the making.... a road trip to Cedar!!!! BRING. IT. ON.
