Today is Halloween

I came up with a Halloween poem.

Today is halloween.
All types of costumes can be seen.
The trees are orange.
and nothing rhymes with orange.
I wish I had candy.
It would be dandy.
I wish my camera would work.
So I could capture those who lurk.

I suck at poems.
But seriously it's Halloween and I'm excited, I hope tonight is fun and I am truly sorry that I can't show any good pictures of the fall-ey Halloween days. 
Hopefully I get a new battery soon.
Anyway ya'll I'm out.

Happy Halloween! :)

So it's Friday.
Thank goodness.
But now is the time to go find somethin' to do. And I live in Cheney, 
so we all know how hard it is to find something fun.
Still feelin' down in the dumps.
Hopefully things will look up soon, I'm missin' family.

One thing:
Photography is my passion. It's what I've wanted to do ever since middle school. 
It's the thing that keeps me going.
I get to see things through a whole different perspective and I get to show my creative side. 
I want to share with everyone the kind of work I can do. 
But I'm afraid no one sees it.
I'd like to think I have a talent, but I don't know how far I can go with it. 
My dream is to be a professional Wedding Photographer. 
I love seeing two people completely in love and the celebration behind it.
It's beautiful and I want to capture those moments. 
And even if I'm not the best photographer out there, I still love it and I will do anything I can to make me dream come true.

No matter how cheesy that sounds. 

I said I wouldn't have new pictures because of my troubling camera. So here's some older ones I took a while ago.

Bad Luck Day

1. Couldn't get a ride home for Halloween weekend.
2. Back and stomach aching.
3. Camera not working properly (which means no new pictures for a while).
4. Had to start writing a 4-6 page essay.
5. Bracelet got untied and came off.
6. Tripped over a crack in the sidewalk...with plenty of witnesses.

I am living. I am loving. But today, I did not laugh much. 
Oh well.
Jeremiah 29:11.

"Love will protect
Love always hopes
Love still believes
When you don’t
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you"

I Caught the Culprit

My capability of matching is high, thank you.

So there's a guy on my floor who thinks it's funny to pop out and scare people, and personally I agree, it's quite hilarious. He even scared Megan a floor below me from what I saw on Facebook...I gave him props. 
I witnessed him do it before a week or so ago. Last night we hear him scaring people all around our floor, then he knocks on our door. I'm not sure if he thought he was sneaky or what...but I swung the door open with my camera in hand :) 
Ha, he thought he was gonna scare me. 
He vowed though that he would scare me before the end of the year...

...bring it on Gorilla.

Polar Bear

I was super happy to be out of school friday, I wanted the weekend. Tired of waking up early to sit through boring lectures. 
Nick and DJ came up to visit. They make things entertaining... 
So we decided to go over to Cabela's on Saturday. Love this store. I'm an outdoorsy kinda girl, so honestly for me it's fun to look at everything.
 Last time I was there, my sister had a staring contest with the stuffed polar of course I took a picture of it to send to her. She hated me for being there without her. 
There's a place to get food inside Cabela's and they have some crazy menu items...such as ostrich and elk and wild boar. I had a sample of the ostrich..I felt a little bad eating an ostrich, but it actually wasn't too bad. 
Nick and DJ bought some things and as we were leaving, the detector went off. So they had to call us all back in to check the bags. They were fine so we went through. DJ and I made it through just fine. Nick however...
Let's just say he had to get searched. 
The girl who was checkin' to make sure he didn't steal anythin' was checkin all his pockets and in his coat. (and apparently, that's how she hits on guys? ..says one of her co-workers. HAHA) 
She ended up just letting us leave.
So later we went to Wal Mart. As soon as we walk through, Nick sets off the detector. So again, searchin' all his pockets. When we finally get in the store, Nick is checkin' to see what's up with settin' off all the detectors. Guess what he finds? In his coat is the magnet that you're supposed to remove after purchasing. 
Ohhhh Nicholas :)
Good times, good times. There was definitely a lot of laughter this weekend.

And by the way, here's my finished bracelet!


Thursday, October 21, 2010


Yesterday Annika and I went on an adventure hike to find this place her friend told her about. It was supposed to be pretty and cool lookin'. So we set out and it was really sunny so we were kinda roasting. We walked up this little pathway and at the end we found mars. Yeah seriously, it looked like a planet. There were even little circles that looked like space crafts had landed. I was imagining riding around in a little dune buggy. 

I saw this super cool butterfly that I wanted a picture of, but it would never land long enough for me to get one of it. So I took a picture of this desert-y flower instead. Sigh.

Today has been boring. But I liked my outfit. 

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


I've decided that I've been too boring.
So, I've been trying to come up with things to do to keep myself busy. Going to try and get back on my regular workout schedule like I did the summer before my senior year. I'm getting there, I am exercising at least three times a week so far. I will hopefully bring that up to five. Last night I played in my first intramural volleyball game! I haven't played in a while. I hope I didn't express my skills too much to my teammates before they saw me play...
We won though which was good. 
I also started making another bracelet, 

I like it so far. I'll post a picture of the finished bracelet sometime in the near future.

Got to sleep in until nine yesterday and today. But people in our hallway like to talk in their cute little outside voices (when they are clearly inside) until midnight so I got about the same amount of sleep as I usually do. Lame. 

I forgot to mention though, last week the girl that sits next to me in my women's studies class came in wearing a flannel. If you know me, I have a weakness/fetish for flannels. So I told her, "I like your shirt" with a big smile. She looked at me and gave me a huge smile and said thank you. She had such a pretty smile that I totally didn't expect. And it made me happy that I finally accomplished saying something to her. It almost seemed that it got her day off to a good start. Sure got my day off right.

Is Your Sister Your Best Friend?

Because mine is!
So my sister came to stay with me for the weekend, I was super excited. Friday we went to the hockey game because it was breast cancer awareness and they dyed pink ribbons onto the ice. Not as cool as the Americans hockey team where they dye the whole rink pink. Haha but it was still pretty cool. Then we went back and watched She's The Man and ate popcorn. Good stuff.
Saturday we slept in til a time..possibly around noonish..who remembers!? ;) But we got ready and I gave Megan a tour of our campus and took some pictures. 

Then we waited for the bus to take us to spokane to do some shoppin'. We got to Macy's and couldn't find the entrance into the mall so we decided to go all the way around. Shh, we ain't stupid we just like to make things complicated...
Pretty much the only store we got super excited about in this mall was the cooking store, there were cool gadgets that we were allowed to try, so of course we did. And the whole store smelled like apple pie. So uh, yeah. YUM. That mall was a little boring so we decided to go out to the valley mall, which means taking another bus. We did. But while we waited for the next bus we went got starbucks and went to the park for funsies. We saw geese and this poor doggy that was tied up and left alone. 

Doesn't he look sad! :(

So we got out to the valley mall and hung out a majority of the time in Forever 21. Der. Best store ever. Bought a few things. And then we went to Rue21 and I bought a leather jacket! I look pretty fly. Haha. There were these aviator sunglasses for ten bucks at Nordstroms that I really wanted, but got stuck in deciding if I should get them since it's not summer and I didn't know if I would use them a whole lot in the winter...I am now regretting that I didn't snag them. Because they were awesome and I would look extra fly in my aviators and leather jacket...
So on the way back home we were waiting in the plaza for our bus and we wanted something to drink. But just get one to share. So there were vending machines, and there was a drink that was stuck. So Megan said "I'll get the one next to it." So she bought that one. And then realized, wait...why didn't I just buy the one behind the stuck one? So I pitched in a dollar to get that one. And it worked! We got the stuck one. So we got a free drink. We were pretty excited...but we realized that we only wanted one in the first place...and then we had three...
We. Are. So. Weird.

Yesterday, Today, Eternity

Yesterday. Yesterday I found a video that made me think a lot on what I put my focus on. Why I am I so concentrated on other things, the world is distracting that's why. Worldly things are tempting, but there's a bigger focus and I am now more confident than ever that the world is not for me. 
Today. Today was great. Beautiful sunny day and I found out I got a really good grade on my english paper. Good job Amy. Also, I had a great talk with Shaina, a girl I met through Campus Crusade. Talked about life and how adorable little children are. 
Eternity. Eternity is...??? Who knows? But I know I'll be spending it in Heaven. So there devil, TAKE THAT.

This Is Me Being Inspirational

Life here at EWU is always about learning something new. Thing with me is I don't like people to know that I don't know how to do something. So basically I find a way to make it look like I know exactly what's going on when really I have no idea. Take for instance, getting food from the cafeteria. See my strategy is to observe what other people do and copy them, but in my own way so it looks like I know how to do it. So when I have no idea where dirty dishes go..I see someone walking with their dirty tray and I say "Oh I'm done too!" and get up to follow them to put my tray away. That's my learning something new in my own secret subtle way :)
Anyway, college is all about observing. I am a people watcher, not to sound creepy, but I like watching how people act and then I try to gain an understanding of what their life is like and what kind of person they are. But I like to try and figure out what their motives are, and honestly what kind of person they want to become. There are lots of interesting people around here. In my Women's Studies class there is a girl who sits quietly by herself reading and usually brings pop tarts to class. (Which is totally unrelated.) But she doesn't talk to anyone nor seems to want to give an effort to do so. I try to sit next to her every day so that maybe someday there can be an opportunity for me to talk to her. If she wants me to or not. As my sister says: She looked like she needed a hug. There was a time I was sitting next to her class and she abruptly brought out a notebook that looked like she was keeping a diary. Me being the nosy person I am, caught a glimpse of some of what she wrote. I will not repeat what she said since it's private to her, but I will say that the class full of girls that are primpy, and stylish, and consumed with theirselves was not something she preferred and it seemed as though she had placed a label on them. It caught me off guard, I felt a little disturbed that she could be so judgmental and in a way hurtful. But I felt more empathy for her than ever. And so began my determination to be a friend to her. She seems a quiet soul and I don't know the story of her life, but she's a person that could use a light. I want to be a light. 

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a spirit who brings a fire
Egnites a candle, and makes his home

Carry your candle
Run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
And hold out your candle
For all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world
