So turns out, I hate geese. They scare the crap out of me.

Do you think?

Do you think that after we die we can travel around the world and see all the places we missed out on? Do you think maybe we can take long vacations and stay in abandoned castles? Can we build a house so our favorite view in the whole world can be seen out our our big picture windows? Can we do the things we were too busy, poor, or scared to do, later?
Tell me your thoughts.

Just because I'm not a big fan of having pets doesn't mean I don't find them adorable.

So almost everyone knows I'm a tad obsessed with rhinos.
I've been thingking and there are three other animals I just find so uncannily beautiful and amazing.


You might be able to understand the first two, but the last one?! Yeah I'm not even really sure why, the last few days I've been thinking about how cool they are. Something about the octopus is so intriguing and I find them wonderful.

* *So as I was looking for a picture, I envisioned a huge octopus tromping over the city killing everyone, then looking at pictures of them scared me.... So, I think I'm gonna cross them off my list. Still they are pretty cool, but those extra legs with the sucky things on them are a tad too scary. Peace out octopus, nice liking ya.

Highlight of my Life

On Friday my breast fren, Sami and I went to the Jason Reeves/Ingrid Michaelson concert at the Slowdown. First off not only do I love both of them, but they sounded so amazing! Even better in person! It was funny though, Sami and I were there for Jason and no there even knew who he was, they were there for Ingrid. I do love Ingrid though and she is really funny, plus. Something about Jason though, he is just different. It's not that I am in love with him for his looks, he isn't anything that special but his music, his soul makes him magnificent.
He is an incredible singer, poet, writer, musician, just a plain incredible man. Artist.
He takes words out of my mouth I didn't even know I was thinking till I heard it. He paints the most vibrant, full, bold, colorful picture in my mind with the most elect words and phrases. When it comes to music and art, he has my heart, mind, and soul.
My words in my brain are like doves trying to get out of their cage. They don't know how to figure it out on their own. He is that string that pulls the door open and they fly out fast, everywhere. Soaring to the sky, belting their song to the world.
Someone once said, "Everyone needs a little help"

It was an honor to be at his concert and get a picture with him.

*Spoiler Alert!!!* "Penelope" Do not read, go watch.

I think I could watch this movie once a week and still adore it. When I first saw the preview for this movie I thought, "Dumb.", when I was in Idaho we ended up watching it and that is when I fell in love with this movie. The whole movie takes me to another magical feeling world.
Some reasons why I love the movie Penelope:
1. I love the story
2. The actors
3. The humor
4. Her house
5. The fantasy
6. The music
7. The clothes
8. Her room
8. The nose
9. The ending kiss
10. How the butler is the witch
11. How the mother loses her voice
12. How he isn't royal blood
13. How he loves her even with her pig nose
14. How beautiful James McAvoy is
15. How James McAvoy kisses
16. How James McAvoy pushes her on the swing
17. James McAvoy
18. How they lived happily ever after, so far
19. It's not the power of the curse, it's the power you give the curse
20. The weather
21. How all she had to do was love herself to break the curse
22. The colors
23. How he has her guess which instrument he plays
24. How they play chess through the two way mirror
25. The eye patched little person
26. How she goes out to explore the world
27. How every time I watch it I rewind the end and re-watch at least 3 times
28. How I get the butterflies every time
29. How it's the perfect story to feel love, and the beauty of love, whether
it's for someone else or for yourself.

Dear Long Luscious Red Hair,

I know it’s been a while now and I should have moved on, but it’s hard. I still think about you all the time. Short hair has been good to me, brown hair has as well, it has, and I'm glad I was able to donate those 15 inches, but nothing will ever compare to what we had. I know this is bad, but sometimes… when I’m brushing my short brown locks, secretly I’m thinking about you. You were different, long gorgeous red curls, and I loved you the moment I saw you on my scalp. Some of my fondest memories took place when we were together and these days I find myself fighting to hold back the salty tears that well up in my eyes when I think about you and I together.

I guess all this is just to say that I love you and I miss you. What we had was something special. And I don’t want to forget that.

Come back to me, grow faster.

I can't decide if Summer is getting to me or I am really thinking this because I haven't been in school for a while.
Here is my dilemma:
I am going to school to become a Sign Language Interpreter but that only gives you an Associates degree then if you want the RID to put you on their registry you have to have a Bachelors degree in something, basically anything you want. So if I'm going to have to go to more schooling what do I want to major in?!
This is where my mind gets mad at me. I think that being a Middle school teacher would be so amazing. I think I would love that so much, but then what about my Sign Language Interpreting?! I don't want to lose my skill after I spent time acquiring it. Plus I love it so much, I've never had so much fun learning.
Writing this down is just making my brain hurt even more. Any suggestions my 6 followers? Sounds pathetic, 6 followers, never the less I love you and glad you follow.
I hope you have a good day and you follow your heart like the sunflowers follow the sun!

Dream or Reality?

So for about the last year or so I've been thinking that when I'm married and old I want to travel across the U.S. on a motorcycle. It has to be one of those decked out ones with cushions, 3rd wheel, helmets with microphones, arm rests, and drink holders. (Our old bodies will be frail) How fun would that be though? You and your dear love would be that couple that everyone thinks is weird because you are wearing tie die shirts, bandannas, jeans that are too tight for our wrinkled bodies, frayed leather jackets, maybe some chaps, and freaky sunglasses. You would be able to throw the peace sign out at all of the other motor kids.
It would be like another life you hold on the side.
Maybe it's just a day dream I will hold on to deeply, or it will become a reality, all I know is that it has occupied my thoughts as I'm driving on the interstate bored many a times.

P.s. Maybe my husband can wear this shirt so he seems more creepy than me.

This post was going to be great. Lots of writing with description, adventure, heartache, and other tales but a whole movie went by (Stardust,amazing movie) and the typie guy continues to blink on my screen. I was coming up with things I would rather make than type.
I would rather make:
1. cookies
2. a blanket fort
3. crafts
4. out

Well these pictures are describing what kind of mood I am in:

Please tell me it took you a while to get it, and then laughed your ears gone.
