obsession(s) of the month!

I haven't posted for a while, only because I have been engrossed in The Hunger Games trilogy. I read all three books in three days, staying up untill 5:30 in the morning was totally worth finishing each book. I am a huge book nerd, and I love to read anything I can get my hands on. (Although I was NOT planning on ever reading The Hunger Games).

Two weeks ago, I decided to go see 'I Am Number Four' (which I also was not ever planning on seeing). One of the reasons being Quin, from Glee was in it. Who I don't really like. But that movie totally turned my opinion around. It was one of the best movies I have ever seen. Seeing I Am Number Four led me to read The Hunger Games, only cause I had heard talk of Alex Pettyfer being one of the main characters in the move they will be making within the next year or so. And since I am completely infatuated with him...I gave it a try. I have already seen I Am Number Four 3 times, and will be going to see it again tonight! ;) Obsessed much? I know.

etc. III

Anyone ever heard of The Hunger Games? Well my mom has been trying to get me to read the trilogy for a while now. Me being as stubborn as I am, had no desire to read them. Fearing that it would be like Twilight (which I am not a fan of). But once my mom told me it's not about vampires, I decided to give it a shot. I'm only on chapter 9 right now, but I am already in love. At least, with Peeta Mellark... 'the bread boy.' Is anyone else currently reading/have read any of the books in the trilogy? I'd LOVE to know what your thoughts are!

Another thing, I posted a few weeks ago that I finally made an Etsy! I will be selling hand-made dream catchers of different sizes, here's a sneak peak. ;)

any american idol fans out there?

I have followed through with every American Idol season for as long as I can remember. This has got to be the most talented, funny, and dramatic season far at least. And I am absolutely LOVING the new judges. What better combination of judges can you get? I mean seriously? We're talking about Steven Tyler. Half the entertainment of AI is Steven himself.

Might I just add that I loved yesterdays "Love"? Personally, they almost all rocked it. Especially since I love the Beatles.

I have a couple favorites...

Colton - The blondie on the right. Unfortunately they didn't show his group preform on the episode yesterday. (MAJOR DISSAPOINTMENT)

I really love this whole group. Hayley (on the right) is probably my most favorite of the girls. She's gorgeous, and her voice is honestly amazing. I hope she'll make it into the top twelve AT LEAST.

Paul has my heart (other than Colton). I have never heard anyone sing like he does. He has a voice that makes you want to a good way of course. But I'm willing to bet a million bucks that he'll make it pretty far.

Does anyone have any favorites? Share!

Day 02!

Day 2- A picture of you with the person you've been closest with, the longest.

I couldn't decide between my mom, or my sister. I mean they're both amazing, and I've been closest to each of them in different ways. Of course I've been with my mom longer, but Danielle has been just as important to me as well.

My mom has been with me through thick and thin. She has never given up on me, never discourged me, and never told me I couldn't endure to the end. In fact, just today when we were driving home from the grocery store, she told me how strong of a person she knows I am, and how important and how strong willed of a girl I am. She has never doubted me for a single second.

Danielle has been there for me in so many ways. She's been my best friend since the second she was born. Of course we're about three years apart, but she still invites me to go out with her friends and basketball games. We watch TV shows, movies, and cooking documents. We fight a lot, but at the end of the day we're still close. If not, we're closer.

ect part II.

I have officially graduated high school as of Feb. 14th, 2011. I am so relieved! Even just 6 months ago, I honestly didn't think I would be able to do it. But I did and I'm extremely proud of myself. Getting my diploma has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done in my 17 and 1/2 years of living. I'm just happy that I can finally move on to college. I think what I'm going to do, is get my general classes done at Dixie State (with an additional class of Phlebotomy) untill I can afford to pay for a bigger, and better college. That way, I'll have a well paying job untill I make my way there.

These last couple weeks have been pretty decent. I made a new friend, which was wonderful and exactly what I needed. I'm finally realizing what life is all about. It's not about having a ton of friends, going out everynight, and trying to fit in. It's about being happy. Being happy that you're alive, and healthy! (Okay, in my case not so healthy. But healthy enough to still be alive!)

I have been going to church the last few weeks. I had an appointment with my bishop last Sunday, and we talked about how I would get my diploma the following day. I have never seen someone get so excited for my well being.

I hope everyone had a good Valentines day. I sure did!
