I believe in leather jackets and aviator sunglasses...

I believe in believing. I believe we all need something to believe in to keep us going, to keep us happy. It makes us who we are. It forms and shapes and molds us into what we want to become. It keeps us moving forward on a path. It gives us direction, it gives us hope.

Believe in something, believe in anything. Just find something to believe and hold on to it. Never let it go. Let it make you happy inside.

Guess who is coming home next week... my Brinners! I can officially say I have waited for a missionary, it's been a year and a half, oh how I have missed that girl!!

P.s. We are watching 17 Again and Ned just said, "I think our hands just made a baby" when he shakes the principal's hand and it is HILARIOUS.


Quick pick me up...

If you're having a bad day... this should help :) I can't not laugh when I watch it! Happy Monday! Yay for the last real monday of the semester!

Ps. Disneyland was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! BEST. WEEKEND. EVER.


Blah Blah Blah (sang in a Ke$ha voice)

So... this is all really random, I just feel like bloggin. I feel like taking all these thoughts in my head and putting them somewhere. Either listen up, tune in, jump on board, and be ready for a fun ride... or use the red X to your top right. Either way, here it goes...

First of all, I love Ellen Degeneres. I'm watching American Idol, like always, and she cracks me up. If you haven't heard her stand up, I would take a pause in this little adventure and go to YouTube and check her out (click YouTube for the link).

Also, a few weeks ago I blogged about how there is no such thing as fireworks and Disney music in sparks (for relationships). Well... I was feeling very angry, bitter, and cynical that day. The truth is, I really do believe in that can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of love.
And I feel like there is hope for everyone to have that. I feel like in 50 years you should still be able to look at that person with nothing but complete and absolute love and affection.

I think this kind of love grows stronger in time. I think people grow so closely that their souls are connected. I think there is a bond there than is the strongest of any kind of connection.

I also believe that it is so important to be with someone who is your best friend. Someone who gets you in all things. There is that person that just knows why you do the things you do. They know what you will say and how you will react...not to the point of boring and monotony, but to the point where you can understand each other's feelings. You know their ups, their downs, when they are happy, when they are sad... just from the look on their face.

The "I'm not me when I'm not with you" kind of best friends.

And I mean quite literally "forever".

I want all of you, forever, you and me, everyday.

I love the Notebook by the way. It sure would be great if Noah Calhoun came to life and told me he wanted all of ME forever, everyday.

I am a hopeless romantic I guess. I think it gets me in to trouble, maybe I expect too much.

Also, I love people. I love learning from them. I like to try to find things about them, characteristics they have that make them great, and instill them in myself. Not in a conformity type of way,but in a learning from example kind of way.

I once bought a card that said, "I'm in New York from L.A. on business"
and the inside said, "Not really, I just always wanted to say that."
Coolest card ever, and so true.
Who writes those cards? I want that career.

Also, do you have anything that makes you absolutely weak at the knees? I sure do... it's called a guitar.
mmMmmm girl.
I love me some guitar player.

....moving on. So is there a point in life when you can be too patient? A point when waiting for someone to be ready or the timing to be right is no longer worth it? Just curious. I guess not, I know I want people to be patient with me. Just when they give up hope on me, I'd hope they'd wait a little longer.

I love talented people.

I have always wondered.... if food made people skinnier would it be more desirable to be big? Because now people have to have self control to be thin, if food made them thin, it would take self control to be big... so would society pressure celebrities in to gaining weight?

Have you ever had that problem when you just think about one person all the time. They are in your thoughts, dreams... everything? How do you get them to go away?

I think it is important for people to take time to do things that make them happy. It keeps us all from going crazy. Also, people should be more forgiving. The other day at institute we talked about loving everyone, no matter what :)

I want to work on that.
There is no need to judge or dislike anyone.
We are children of our Heavenly Father.
Think kindly of others, it will help you be happier.

Take time for reading your scriptures, the Lord will make up your time in more ways than you can imagine.

Take time for the little things, life is too short to be anything but happy.

Listen when people talk to you, you'd want them to listen to you.

Ok I am going to end this now, it is getting ridiculous. Plus, my blog is doing this weird thing where it will let me type two words and then it pauses for like an hour to save.... just this sentence took me like ten minutes to write... irritating (another 2 minutes).

Happy Thursday! I know it's happy for me, I'm going to Disneyland!!!!
Good day!


The countdown....

Who has two thumbs and is going to Disneyland in T MINUS THREE DAYS?



Hi kids.

Hi kids, do you like violence? Wanna watch me stick nine inch nails through each one of my eye lids? Wanna grow up and be like me and do exactly like I did?

Ok so that is a random song that just jumped in to my brain as I started typing, if you can guess what song it is or who it is by I will give you 50 bucks (BUCKS, not dollars, big difference)!

I love to blog about art projects and crafting experiences because I am an old lady and that type of thing brings me joy (so does Toy Story Macaroni and Dino Nuggets... apparently I am every age but nearly 22). So, my latest art project...

I'm not sure it counts as crafting, maybe it's more in the photography category, but either way you are about to hear about it...

How about that for the most ridiculously long introduction to a post ever? Ok seriously here it is....


Oh fun! I stole the idea from some random store in Savannah, GA (Savannah shout out! Fave City Ev!)It is kind of hard to describe so I will just show you. I had Lacy and Chet for Christmas this year, but I was gone to Disneyworld over Christmas and couldn't give it to them then. I have only seen them twice since I have been home so... four months later... Merry Christmas Lacy and Chet!
Get it? H-U-N-T?!

I went to may aunt and uncle's barn to take the pictures... It was a blast! Now I look for letters in everything I see! I am all set up to make one for my roommate Senecca (LOVE HER!)...

She (Lacy) loves it! At least she says she does! Here are a few more pictures to get the feel...

...and... it is in her casa!

Anywho, I just had to share! Hope you enjoy frannnns!

Love, peace and chicken grease!


Happy Birthday Mother!

I want to give a birthday shout out to my amazing mother. She is simply amazing!!

My dearest most amazing mother-
I was just sitting in class today and we were learning about credit scores. I thought to myself, I already know all of this, my mother taught me. Then I thought, not only did she teach me about credit scores, she also helped me start building a line of credit. And she is helping me make sure all the payments are made on time. And she pays them. And she supports me in my education. And she provided me with a vehicle to drive. And, in order to do all of this, she works hours upon hours. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year... my mother is working. She is doing all of this for me, so that I can have an education. So that I can be successful. She sacrifices time with her husband, her remaining children at home, and not to mention personal time to just sit and relax. She never takes a break, or vacation. If she isn't at work, it's because she is doing something for one of her children. She is watching a sporting event or buying us groceries. She is never doing anything for herself, she is simply always doing things for the people she loves.

Then I almost started crying in class because I realized I have the most amazing mother a person could ask for. I have the most amazing example. I have the most incredible woman there for me to support me in all that I do. She sacrifices everything for my success and my happiness. She is the epitome of amazing. She is also my best friend. She is there for me. She listens to my whining. She gives me advice when I all too often am crying about whatever ridiculous thing I am complaining about. She is my favorite person to be around and spend time with. She gives me love and laughter. She cracks me up. She quotes my movies. She digs Zac Efron.

Mom, you are the most amazing person a girl could ever ask for as a mother. You are perfect in every way. Thank you so so so much for all the love and support you offer me. Thank you for your selfless service and loving kindness. Thank you for all you do. Words can not express how much you mean to me, all I can do is say thank you, and I love you. I love you with my whole heart! You are the best there ever was!

I love you always,

<3 your daughter, Misty

While we're young and beautiful.

Dear college:

Sometimes I really don't like you...

Senior year is the hardest thing I have ever done, it even ranks above sending off a missionary.
Dealing with you and the stresses of life (dating, maintaining friendships, church callings, etc.) at the same time are enough to put someone in an institution. 
Not having the opportunity to work full time really limits every choice I make. It throws off my eating habits, my work out schedule, etc. because I can't afford to live like normal people. 
All I ever do is worry about homework. I can never have a stress free minute because I am thinking about my paper that is due or an exam I really should be studying for.

Yet, sometimes I love you...

Times like I had last night. Times where I am surrounded by the best friends in the world. I can laugh like a kid, dance like I just don't care, and simply enjoy being young and alive.

Sometimes its good to rememeber to just let your hair down and go a little bit crazy,

"And even if we come home empty handed we'll still have our stories, battle scars, pirate ships and wounded hearts, broken bones and all the best of friendships."

Roam if you want to, roam around the world...

I was just creepishly stalking some friends of mine on facebook (while I am supposed to be writing a paper...ehem)... These friends were people I met on my study abroad in Italy (REPRESENT!)...

(Taken in Venice, fave city ev!)

...these friends of mine had pictures in spain, chile, portugal, everywhere! What a life. So, I decided I am going to become a world traveller and just travel trave travel! I know this is random... I just had to share the epiphany. I want to be one of those dirty bum, sleep in hostels, no make up, backpacking travellers. Yee haw! (This here is the wildest ride in the wilderness! Hahaha thunder mountain railroad shoutout!).

Anywho, I wanna start in South America! Let's see how this thing goes :)

By the way (and not as in John)... 15 days till Disney!

Happy Humpday!
