"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



*Sunglasses. I love them, but then again, I really don't like wearing them. I see people walking around campus with them on and I've tried that, but I, for some reason, would prefer not to wear them. My main thing is that with sunglasses on, everything is dull. I like to see the bright colors and I really don't want tan lines around my eyes :)

*A few weekends ago, we watched Back to the Future, one of Kayla's favorite movies. It was pretty good! I had never seen it before so Kayla decided it was time for her to share her favorite with the roomies. Overall, it was funny and the only thing that really bothered me was Michael J. Fox's voice. His voice is just made for cartoons; you should be able to hear the voice, but not be able to see where it's coming from (that sounds really mean and i dont want it to, i just meant that his voice doesnt match him... :) ). Anyways, next movie to watch = Back to the Future 2!

*Sara, Kayla, and I also went to see Remember Me a while back and like Back to the Future, I liked it...a lot. I guess I have a thing about voices because, yet again, the main girl's voice kind of bothered me. I was later informed that she is Australian so she was trying to hide her accent, and in my opinion she didn't do that great of a job. When she had to yell something, I felt like she was talking super slow and her voice got super deep. Rob Pattinson, however, did a really good job. Some of his lines were pretty funny and he delivered them well. The other person that I really liked in the movie was Pierce Brosnan. He changed his accent to a thick New York one and you couldn't even tell that he's really Irish (well, in one part when he got angry, he lost his New York accent)! The storyline was interesting to me also even though it wasn't a major, dramatic story. One thing that I LOVED about the movie was the twist in the end. I did NOT see it coming at all and when I realized it, I was shocked! (I can also add this movie to the long list of movies that make me ball like a baby)

*So if you've read earlier posts, then you know that I am now a proud employee of Macy's! I'm first of all super excited that I found this job and second of all, I love it. In my department, I feel like I'm a personal shopper sometimes, which trust me, is not a bad thing at all. I didn't expect people to come in and ask me to help them find an outfit. I'm finally catching on to where all of the designers are and what they carry so this is slowly getting easier.

*Just recently, we found out that our roommate this year (the one that we didn't know coming into the apartment) is moving next year. Since we need another roommate, we asked a girl that Sara and Kayla know if she wanted to move in. In order for this all to work out, we had to set up play dates for her dog, Bella, and Kayla's cat, Max. The first one happened on Sunday and it was hilarious! Bella is HUGE and so playful while Max is small (not compared to other cats, I'm told) and he's playful only if he's not nervous. Well, imagine how nervous you would be if you had never seen a dog of that size try to play with you! She would get on the ground and try to play, but all Max did was sit on the chairs under the table and growl/hiss at Bella. Tonight, we're having the second play date so hopefully Max will remember who she is and they will be the best of friends!

*I know I've mentioned it before, but I get the most random songs in my head. Today while reading The Lovely Bones (which is weird, but in a good way) I started humming this song:

I just wish I knew why some of these songs that I don't even listen to get stuck in my head!


  1. um, WHY did you get rick astley stuck in your head while reading the lovely bones?? that's like getting walking on sunshine stuck in your head while reading....the green mile or something.

  2. oh, and i agree about the sunglasses. i love them, but i hate wearing them.

  3. cute post! ps. i know what you mean about michael j fox's voice... its like his voice never hit puberty, in a nice way :)

  4. i know what you mean about stupid songs getting in your head!


  5. 1. your comment regarding michael j. foxe's voice made me laugh, it's very true but I still love that movie! You might like the second one better anyway :)

    2. HAHA at Rick Astley getting stuck in your head! what the heck.

    but I've been listening to all the 80s music I downloaded for the party....AKA Conga/We got the beat/The Pina Colada Song
