Happy late Christmas to someone!

Observation #33: Blogging is easy when you have a motive

Hey guys... (said in an unsure voice)
I know that right now I may seem like that friend who ignored you for two years and then decided they want to be friends again. Well that is exactly who I am right now. I know it hasn't been as long as two years but it sure feels like it. WILL YOU BE MY FRIEND AGAIN?!

I'm just going to pretend that you all agreed and we did our secret spit-on-the-ground handshake (sorry its not a secret any more) because I've got something to say. And your gonna let me say it!

I made some shoes for my brother for Christmas and I was so proud of them. Until he tried to squeeze them onto his foot and we all realized that they would never fit him. So now I am trying to sell them. They are size 8.5 in men's and 10 in women's.

I am selling  them for $60, so if your interested in buying them comment below or send me a message on FB.

Wish My Life was in Black and White

Observation #32: Old movies and photographs have a way of making everyone look happier and more attractive.

If you know me, you know how much I love old movies. Well, my all time favorite (and when I say all time favorite I mean my favorite as of right now until I watch another one but it sure feels like an all time love so I won't be correcting myself) old movie would have to be Roman Holiday.
I think this is partly because of my love for Gregory Peck.
Can't you just feel his charm emanating from this picture?

I want him
I need him
Oh baby, oh baby

The Pursuit of Happiness

Observation #31: It is all about the little things

Because of foot surgery and a 2 week family vacation, I have not been able to get a job. This may sound like a great relaxing summer to many of you, but I am going OUT OF ME MIND! I think it may have something to do with being raised by Phil Stoker or just my ADD personality, but I need to be doing something all the time.

I have picked up quilting because of this. I have also completely redone my room (pictures will come soon).

But I am still slightly miserable without the feeling of being needed. So I have started to create lists of the little things that make me happy whenever I feel anxious about how much time I have.

Here is my list for today:

1. Brushing my teeth for the first time with a new tooth brush
2. Watching my dog's pleased prance as we go on a walk without a leash (a first for him)
3. The adorability of an awkward boy. Have you seen the new Spider Man? I am kinda obsessed with Peter. I am so glad I saw it with Taylor Jones instead of a boy so I could oggle openly about how much I wanted him throughout the whole movie.
I just love this picture of him
It may or may not be taped on the ceiling above my  bed
4. Having a queen size bed (first time in my life)
5. My niece following me around all day saying "whatcha doin' missy?"
I just had to put a picture of her because she is da cuutest

6. Green smoothies. Like seriously. Ever since I started drinking these I have lost 10 pounds. I went on the HCG diet and I didn't even lose 10 pounds. I have very positive feelings towards these things

Thats All Folks!

Observation #30: Every single good book I have read has/will be turned a movie.

Seriously. If I were an author of novels, I would just write a screen play along with my book so I could get it all over with at one time.

Anyways, one of my favorite books that I actually read about 3 years ago is finally being turned into a movie
AND I AM STOKED! And considering I am a Stoker, my stokage can become pretty extreme. (insert pity laugh here)
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Read it before September 20th since that is when this comes out:

"But Friday I'm in Love"

Observation #29: A different scene can be seen with a new kind of sheen.

This has been the theme of my life for the past couple of weeks.
Ever since my sophomore year of high school I have always had a very negative view of Mesa, thinking it had nothing to offer me. I was so excited to graduate and get out of there and now I always dread coming back during school breaks. But recently some people have come into my life and switched the light bulb so I now can see Mesa in a brighter light! As if its not bright enough... phew its hot.

Anyways, this is how I also feel about a new found music obsession: Kimbra.
I heard her about a year ago and thought she was cliche and unoriginal, but I gave her another chance and now I am the chick throwing my bra on stage at her concert.
Just check out some of her music and you'll want to join me in my bra-less stampede
Can I hear an AMEN!!

A new light has also been shed on a boy. 
Yes, your thoughts are correct; I DO move on quickly. Its a problem I need to correct one day if I want to get married. But I'm young for now so let me be. 
So this boy: I have known him awhile and always viewed him just as that guy who has the same friends as me and is always at everything I'm at. But I have recently viewed him as a little more.
The light has shifted

My Current Life as a Mesian

Observation #28: Time+boredom=inspiration, if you'll let it.

Because of foot surgery and the lack of a social life, I have picked up painting again. Here is the one I just finished:
Its not a very good quality of picture but ya get the idea

I get really nervous about showing any one my art because I know not EVERYONE is gonna like it. But I'm trying to face my fear. So don't criticize it yet because my feelings are still soft about it.

Also because of my new time I have gained, I have read a lot. My all time favorite book I have read recently goes out to:
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

You may have seen the movie which I thought was pretty good, but the book is AMAZING! Jonathan Safran Foer knows his stuff. I have a large literary crush on him.
