Carp in my Moat?

This weekend was BRILLIANT! There is simply no other way to put it. I love Tori and Amanda and Natalie and Tori... haha And I don't love drama. Why can't everyone just get along, for one weekend. Is it really too much too ask?
Oh well.
ANNND McFly Ghosthunting is coming out on DVD!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SO there!

See Spot Run.

If only I had my camera here with me instead of at home in Brunswick. I cannot believe that it got left there. Well, I guess I can. Things happen when you move everything out of your bedroom to paint. Things mysterisouly disappear, like your favorite pair of shoes that you traveled all around Krakow in this summer. The shoes that look good with everything, where did they go??? Anyways, back to the point.

I wish I had my camera here because today is bath day. That's right, bath day. Fletcher HATES bath day with a passion. He has, in fact, already succeded in jumping out of the tub three times... I am now officially soaking wet, and he is sitting on the floor, covered in soap giving me the evil eye. Why does bath day have to be difficult??? AND this makes me wonder.... I can't even give my puppy a bath without wanting to strangle him; what happens when I have children? I shudder at the thought.

New Obsession...

I think I have a new obsession... WORDLE. Go check it out!

Throw Your Heart Right In.

Kicking off is the hardest part
Nothings certain at the start
Letting go, so something can begin

Figure out how to get our life
Leave tomorrow, live tonight
Gotta throw, throw your heart right in

Cause we all fall down

Everybody knows the end
When the curtain hits the floor
And everybody knows the end
Don't wanna get there wishing that you given more
It's not over, till it's over
So how do we begin
When everybody knows the end


I need to live with nothing to fix
Don't tell me whats gonna happen next
I'm alright, I like the way this feels
Leave behind all the things I miss
Next stop isn't where you think it is
Cause tonight, I'm riding off the rails

Cause we all fall down

...I just can't get enough of this song.
6. Go skinny dipping.
7. Horseback riding on the beach at sunset.
8. Learn to play guitar.
9. Have one night out; no strings attached.
10. Sing on stage, by myself, in front of an audience.

*I'm doing good with this whole list thing. haha

Life's Like an Hourglass Glued to the Table.

SO, this may seem totally random, but I promise I'm going somewhere with this post. Lately I've been so stressed/ caught up in school and school and, well, school (along with a few other things), that I think, somewhere along the line, I forgot how nice it is to just sit back and relax.

On the ride back home from Brunswick this weekend I was rocking out to the fabulous Kate V (It's Only Life, of course), and I felt like this lightbulb went off in my head.

Now I know that they totally make cheesy movies, like the Bucket List which I have never seen, about these moments of inspiration... And I know that I'll go somewhere and have this amazing experience and then say, "I can totally cross that off my list of things to do before I die..."

BUT, the problem is, I didn't actually have one of those lists. (Same goes for traveling, as much as I love it, why do I not have a list of places to see before I die???)

So, to get to the point, I've decided it's time I really start living. There are so many things I want to do with my life and so many places I want to see and experience. And the only thing holding me back is myself. My fear of not pleasing of everyone, and most of all, my fear of the unknown. It's time to let go and, well, LIVE! I don't want to spend my whole life wondering about what might have been, and I know how cliche' that sounds, but it's the truth.

I think we all get caught up in the stress of everyday life, and the joy of living gets lost in that. I don't think God created us to live a mundane existence. I think He wanted us to see and experience this beautiful and awe-inspiring world that He created for us. Even if it is something as simple as watching the sunrise, or sending a card to your best friend because you want to share in someone elses' happiness.

I'm not sure if any of this makes sense, but I felt like I had to get it out there. I officially name today, Spetember 16, my day to live. And no matter who you are or where you're from, I dare you to do the same. Whether it be something crazy or something small. Take the time to enjoy life and God's beautiful creation. And don't just do it today-- do it everyday.

I making this my vow to stop stressing so much and start living, because as the great J.M. Barrie wrote: "To live will be an awfully big adventure!"

In honor of today, I have decided to start making that list, and it is my goal to post five new "things to do before I die" every time I post on here, so wish me luck!

1. Meet McFly.
2. Move to Europe, at least for a little while.
3. Fall in love.
4. Go on a mission trip to Africa.
5. Finally finish reading the entire Sherlock Holmes Collection.

*And no matter how silly or trivial these things may seem, I vow to attempt to accomplish them, and if I do, I will post it on here.

Note to Self.

Despite fact that red is favorite color, do NOT under any circumstances ever use said color of paint again. If ever tempted to use said color, see Exhibit A (shirt that used to be grey but is now covered in white primer) for a reminder of why not to use red paint.


Hi Ho, Hi Ho

I'm kind of sad to be painting my room. So many memories, but I'm ready for a change. I think it's going to look fabulous, and I cannot wait to be done with it.
I love painting, but I have a feeling that my red walls are going to be a pain in the you-know-what to cover. Wish me luck. I'm off to work.

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby...

In reference to the above title.... You must say it quickly, while laughing, with a Bolton accent. Just thought you should know. hahaha

I think this blog is turning into one big "IMISSMYBESTFRIEND" sobfest, but it's oh so true!

And I know that school jsut started, but I'm already super-stressed. Is it Thanksgiving yet? Or maybe I don't want it to be November-- that's part of the problem. This semester is going by too quickly. There is not enough time to get everything done that needs to be done. All I know is, next week is the start of something new for me. I'm going to stop being so lazy and start being more productive. I mean it!

Breathe a Little Deeper

I am deeply saddened by the fact that I cannot go to ATL next weekend and Tor has to work the weekend after, so I can't go then either. This sucks. Boo to birthdays. haha I know my dad can't help when he was born, but still. It sucks. I need to see my bestie.

Lets Count the Days.

I love college and pep rallies and free concerts and best friends and photo shoots and late-night movies and hyper puppies and McFly and hot lead singers...

Most of all I love life and the experiences that I get to share with my best friends!
