Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling →
I saw Great Gatsby and I liked it. *cue Katy Perry music*… I was legitimately impressed and thought the literary motifs carried through beautifully while still being visually spectacular. Also Moulin Rouge and Great Gatsby share a lot…obviously. But the opening sequence, the innocent young man in the wild city, the ‘she doesn’t love you’…I really should have...

Why Every State Should Be More Like Texas Reporter Erica Grieder sees wisdom in the Lone Star Stateâs economic model. No verdict on if it has the best barbecue, however Why am I moving again? I’m gonna miss this place but I know I’ll be back someday (also I’m getting really excited to get outta here haha)

I don’t think I agree with all of these…but today I’ve been getting really excited about traveling again. JUST. CAN’T. WAIT. All the pieces are officially in place now (except the packing) and its just like…whoa. finally hitting me. HURAY SUMMER 2013!

Jay Gatsby seriously needs to check his privilege. This was actually really challenging for some reason…
This Is the End →
Watch the latest This Is the End Trailer (Green Band Version) on IMDb It’s good to see all these guys again. It takes me back…to the high school days? Anyway, I want to see this.
To add contrast to the video...
Why Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches” Video Makes Me Uncomfortable… and Kind of Makes Me Angry jazzylittledrops: So this video started going around my facebook today, with about a dozen of my female friends sharing the link with comments like, and “Everyone needs to see this”, and “All girls should watch this,” and “This made me cry.” And I’m not trying to shame those girls!...

An open grave
Two nights in a row I have had intense, anxious dreams where I am feistily arguing with some person or another and it ends with a huge emotional argument and people storming off. Last night I was fight/arguing with some random dude who was being mean to me on my birthday, and when I stormed off through a field I fell into an empty open grave (while holding either a large stuffed animal or...
23 signs you went to an all girls school →
You’ve probably all seen this by now…but I like how accurate it is/how universal all girl school culture is? haha oh the reminiscing…
Love Quotes to sooth the soul →
I like all of these (and that Lauren Conrad snuck in the list as well hahah)
Cat replaces Iron in Monopoly →
I realize I just posted something about cats. But I’m really sick of all this cat business. I like the tiny monopoly iron token. It makes me feel like a giant.I can iron all my clothes just a small portion at a time. We don’t need more cats in this world. Plus, now there will be a cat and a dog…how will that work? We all know the infamous rivalry between cats and dogs will only...
Skinny the Fat Cat →
It’s not just Americans that are suffering from obesity. It’s our cats as well. How do cats actually get to this point? I have no idea…but I would adopt Skinny. And help him continue on his way to a lean, mean, rat-killing machine. (Also there’s one picture on here where Skinny is being held by the Vet, and it’s like the saddest, most defeated cat picture ever. But...
Parisian Pants →
Pants are the future. Pants are women’s equality. Pants is a funny word when you say it over and over again.

"A Defiant Dance of Power" →
So…I actually watched the SuperBowl in its entirety (for the first time) last night. And for the first time…I also became a Beyonce fan. Badass.
25 Best Book Jackets of 2012 →
I’m reading ‘Where’d ya go, Bernadette’ right now and am lapping it up like a puppy. I want to be the author- she wrote for some awesome tv shows before writing this awesome book. And it also has an awesome cover. awesome!
I think I want to write a book where I just go through the DSM4 or 5 (the new one that is coming out or already has?), pick out a psychological problem, or multiple, and create characters around that, build a story around the symptom descriptions, and probably ultimately end in tragedy. This has probably already been done, but I feel like this is a good way to satiate my desire to be a...
Come on Boy Scouts →
…has it really taken this long for Boy Scouts to rethink their dumb dogma? This is why girl scouts rule and boy scouts drool. (also, I have to think that mr. prez had some kind of influence on this. The ‘commander in chief’ isn’t homophobic, why should boy scouts be?)
I like how sort of awkward but funny this woman is….makes me feel at home:) haha also I want to be a sassy female comic talkin about the issues. That’d be livin the dream.
National Pie Day →
They should really coordinate with Pi Day…but oh well…the more pie days the better!
Polaroid Portraits: Capturing President Obama's... →
Would have been awesome to be there! I went to the SA MLK march for the first time (apparently one of the largest MLK marches in the country)…and it was awesome (and a workout)! It’s nice to feel good about this country and the people we share it with.
Cheers to Dear Abby →
Quite a sassy lady…who knew?
I dreamt last night that I was attacked by a bear. That’s never happened before. It was weird. And it never really touched me…just jumped out in front of me and roared while i fled backwards into the fetal position. I wonder what it all means.
Finding the right words... →
maybe we need to make more words for the english language. I feel comfortable with the creation of new words (as long as they do not replace our old, beloved ones). Who will be our modern-day Shakespeare? I think it’s about time we had another one of them.
