Little Miss Sunshine

I had no doubts that I would love this movie, I just never made time to watch it before. Paul Dano is one of my favorite actors, always impressing me.

The dance scene at the end…perfection. 10/10 would watch again.


Updating my resolutions.

Day 15: Scroll through your Favorites on Tumblr and share some of the best/funniest posts.

If I had to do this post again in a few months, it’d be entirely different, even though the Tumblr addiction is fading. I wish they weren’t links, but I’m lazy and like to source things. Posting early tonight. #so #damn #accurate #foreverreblog #corymatthewsismyspiritanimal #hif #bestuseofcaptions #besttinyhand #reallife #breakingbad


Day 14: Fears

Day 14: You can tell a lot about a person by looking at what scares them. Name a few times in your life where you were truly terrified.

There are two ways to go about this post. Pretty easily, I can rattle off a list of irrational fears I encounter on a daily basis. Like this:

1. Walking up the stairs in the middle of the night with the lights off. “Oh god, what is going to be at the top of the stairs when I get up there? What is something is following me up the stairs, better go faster.”

2. The steps between the bathroom and my bedroom at night. “Better hurry up and get back in that bedroom before something runs out from the end of the hallway. There, now close that door as fast as possible for safety.”

3. Looking out a dark window at night. “Don’t stare too long, a face might appear.”

4. Um, night-time in general. All of it.

Or, I could talk about actual things to be afraid of. Like this:

I fear being a failure. I am so afraid of messing up that I’d rather not even try most of the time. How messed up is it to be so afraid of failure that you sabotage your own success? I’m not sure if that says more about me, or more about the world we live in.

Hilary Duff is my daily inspiration.

Day 13: College

Day 13: What’s your best memory from college?

This is a really simple question for me because the answer’s really simple too. Anytime I was in the library, anytime we were hiding out in a narnia study room, anytime we were still camped out in a study room at 2:00 A.M., anytime we got so exhausted we took to the floors to recuperate. Those are my best memories from college. I made best friends out of those moments, went though some of the most dramatic scenes of my life, and laughed so hard I could barely breathe.

I remember one time, it was just me and Kristi, and we were furiously writing papers right around finals time. We were both on the struggle bus that night, and then I had the brilliant idea to set us a timer. I set my phone to sound an alarm (like, a blaring “This is not a drill!” alarm) after every fifteen minutes, and we promised ourselves that we’d have at least another 100 words by the time the timer went off. And it worked, it really worked. It also scared us half to death every time the alarm went off. Maybe it’s just the nostalgia, but it feels like quintessential college to me. And if anyone ever makes a movie of my life, I want that scene in it, non-negotiable.

Honorable library moment mentions to:

1. That time when I fell out of my chair and just stayed on the ground because I was completely done with life.
2. That time when Aimee made the biggest scene in the history of Joyner.
3. All the times we made up games for the sake of procrastination.
