Once Upon a Time it was Halloween

Some girls dress up like princesses to feel beautiful.  I dress up as an evil queen to get the same result.

Have you seen Once Upon a Time?  I'm kind of addicted to it.  I have a roommate who might be obsessed with it.  We had a stake dance yesterday and she really wanted to be the main character Emma Swan.  So, naturally, I decided to be the evil queen, Regina.  I feel like I almost captured the queen in the following picture, but obviously the background ruins things. I'm pretty sure the evil queen does not have a shirt hanging on her wall.

 Regina and Emma Swan.

My favorite quotes of the night:

I responded to a guy that I was the evil queen.
Guy: "Oh, you didn't have to dress up for that."

Later, different guy: "What are you supposed to be other than gorgeous?"

I'm Trying to not be Sacrilegious

That awkward moment when you realize your prayer to Heavenly Father sounds more like an Adam Lambert song...

There might have been a time
When I would’ve let you slip away  (Okay, possibly not applicable to me)
I wouldn’t even try
But I think you could save my life.  (Very applicable to me)

Just don’t give up
I’m working it out
Please don’t give in
I won’t let you down…

What do you want from me?
What do you want from me...

Just don’t give up on me
I won’t let you down

Once upon a time I was all set to graduate in December and I didn't have a clue what I was going to do after that.  There's an entire world of options with nothing holding me back.  Well, nothing except my own lack of confidence.  The problem is that I know that I can contribute to society, I just don't know how.  Nor do I know how exactly to let an employer know that.

Things that I can't put on an resume or application:
1.  Well, I received a blessing that you should hire me so that I can fulfill it.
2.  Earlier this month a prophet of the Lord said.... in General Conference.  So basically he called me to work for you.
3.  Recommendations?  Everybody loves me.  Instead of getting references from people you might actually be interested in, I've attached a couple of pages of people's signatures attesting to the fact that I'm awesome.  No I didn't pass that list around during Stake Conference.  

Why can't a guy just propose to me tomorrow?  That'll at least solve the issue of where I'll live.  Don't answer that.  I don't really want anyone to propose tomorrow.  

Don't worry.  As much as life is not a musical, the next song that comes to mind is "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John.  Actually, the only line I know is "I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah," but that's the gist of my point.

Going Up

A week ago today I came back from campus and went right to my car so that I could have a private place to cry.  Then my sister called me back and took part of my melt down.  It was the crowning feet of a load that had been building on me for a couple of weeks.  I felt like I was failing in school and in life.

It's been a week since then and I've been pretty happy this last week.  It turns out I am not failing school.  Bad things happen (like forgetting a midterm until five minutes before class began) and good things happen (like finishing that midterm during class and only losing 1.5 points on it!)  Hmm, I guess that actually happened before the melt down.  Bad example.

Anyway, yesterday I completed an assignment that is due tomorrow.  TOMORROW!  I've never done that before!  I'm a last minute girl.  This freedom of knowing it's already done is overwhelming.  Oh that I could always live in the moments before the last minute!

This assignment involved taking pictures.  As such, I went through some pictures I have taken.  So here you go.  Look at ME!!!!

Now I know I have beautiful eyes, but that is not what this is a picture of.  This is a picture of a mosquito that got squashed right above my right eye which is actually the one on the left.  See that blood on my eyebrow?  Yeah, that's disgusting.

That is one beautiful bruise if I do say so myself.  I got it during cleaning checks when I fell off the counter.  I have since found that if you stand on the opposite vanity area, it moves.  As in it's no longer connected to the wall.  As in it's probably not the safest action.  

I swear there's a way to rotate photos.  I know it's possible.  I'm just finding it a bit difficult.  Anyway, once upon a time I wore that dress.  And I put make-up on my bruise.  Okay, I'll admit it, these pictures are from March.  I'm a bit behind the times.

I go to bed early.  It feels great!

Last night I was ready to get ready for bed.  My roommates invited me to go play a game at a boy's house.  I replied that I was going to bed.  Jibs and jabberings later, I found myself being dragged outside without shoes, phone, or keys.  Well, I can be dragged outside and still go home, so I didn't put up too much of a fight.  The next thing I know my roommate has placed me on her back and is carrying me to her car.  With the help of the other roommate, they succeed in placing me in the back seat.  Quite honestly, I could run away; but it's not every day that you get kidnapped to go play games.

In the car they informed me that I was destined to marry the guy's roommate.  So when they found out he was sick and would not be joining us, it did put a damper on their plans.  Oh well.  I guess it wasn't destiny after all.
