Quizzes.

Here's the thing, I love buzzfeed and I really love buzzfeed quizzes. Like really love them. 

The other day I took like a lot of their quizzes (because I hate school and don't like doing homework anymore) and they were seriously spot on. 

First of all, I took the "which Liz Lemon food are you?" I never actually watched 30 Rock but I know that Liz Lemon is hilarious and eats a lot of good food. 


Cupcake sandwich!!!!! Obviously sounds like the best thing ever created and so perfectly describes me.

Then I took "Which celebrity couple are you and your significant other?" But since I am lacking in a significant other I just did it for me and Ivy because she's basically my favorite person.


Of course I got Will and Kate. I always told you all I was meant to be royal!

I also took the "Which Scandal character are you?" one and got Olivia Pope. Which is highly significant for many reasons.

With all that being said, I still don't trust those quizzes because one time it told me I was meant to be single forever so....#foreveralone

Frozen.

I saw Frozen over the weekend (I know I am about two months late but I don't even care). I really enjoyed the movie but I have to say that "Let it Go" just didn't do anything for me. Everyone and their dog loves it but it just wasn't my jam. That was, until I saw this video. This girl is too talented and I pretty much died laughing.

Ok.

I absolutely adore this picture. It also made me think that every once in a while when things are seeming especially difficult, I just have to remind myself that I am ok. 

I have so many people that care about me and won't let me totally fail. I have enough money to do the things that I want. I am getting an education studying something that I love. I have dreams that I am working towards. 

And besides all that, I am pretty happy. It may not not be perfect but we are all ok. 

And sometimes ok is the best you can do.

Fashion week.

Wait, you guys thought we were going to go through fashion week without a post from me about it? Good joke. You may recall my post from last fashion week but here we go again.

I am not usually the biggest Rodarte fan but this collection is perfect. I mean, sequin coats???

Oscar De La Renta really can do no wrong and this 20's inspired dress is too much.

Sequin dress? I don't mind if I do Betsey Johnson

This one by Jeremy Scott is a little out there but I imagine it more comfortable than a snuggie.

This is just too good. And something that you could actually wear every day!

Source
And yet another totally wearable look!

And now, for the grand finale I give you Marchesa. The things they can do with fabric are just out of this world.

How good is that?

I was plesantly surprised this season because I loved a lot of looks from designers I am not typically fond of. Such a good fashion week.

Valentine's

I really have zero emotion towards Valentine's day. Most people either love it or hate it but I really couldn't care less about it. This isn't even me being bitter or anything, I just don't care about it.

(but I did get a secret Valentines day package so you know I wasn't mad about that (and if it was you, you better tell me right now...))


But some people really do care about it.

So, I am happy for you if you are in love and you get to spend the day with your significant other. I am also happy for you if you don't have a significant other but are excited about spending the day with other people that love you. And I am sad for you if this holiday makes you feel bad about yourself or accentuates your loneliness. 


Honestly, the day may be catered to couples but isn't it just about love in general? Shouldn't you just use this as an opportunity to let people know how much you care about and appreciate them? I know that's what I will be doing. So I understand why people might hate this day but I think that it can be a really positive experience if you let it. 


On that note, I love you all and I think that you are wonderful. And if you feel like today is going to be awful just use this as a good excuse to eat a lot of chocolate and ice cream. Because sometimes we all need an excuse to do that.

Happy Valentines Day!

Basketball.

I LOVED high school. Like I really really loved it. Since all my siblings go to the same school I went to I get a lot of opportunities to go back and I am a super nerd so I obviously seize those chances.  

Last week my brother had a basketball game so of course I was going. On the way there I took this snapchat (the car was stopped) and kind of liked it so I am sharing it with you all for no particular reason.


Anyways, as I was walking into the game I saw one of my favorite teachers. He was the yearbook advisor and I spent so much time in the yearbook room it is ridiculous so I know him pretty well. We had a good little chat and it made me realize just how far I have come since those years of sitting in the yearbook room. I was actually really proud to be able to tell him all the things I am doing and how I have progressed. It reminded me that I am doing ok. I am progressing and becoming closer to the person I hope to be.

Then came the fun part. 

The JV game was pretty sad and Waterford didn't do so well. But it gave me a good idea of what the other team was like and the other teams fans (because that is always important to know). By the time the Varsity game started I was actually really really excited for the game. I do not personally know one player on the team but I was still so excited to support my school. And if you know me at all then you know I get pretty into sporting events...so into it that I sometimes yell things at the refs...but its fine!

I was slightly embarrassed at how into the game I was but when halftime rolled around I forgot all about myself. Because the Utah Jazz dunk team was there! They performed at the Utah basketball game a few weeks ago and I was so impressed. I have no idea how they knew about Waterford but it was amazing.



And Waterford obviously won the game and I didn't get into a fight with anyone. So overall I would say it was a good night.

I know not everyone can look back on their high school years as fondly as I can but I really love my school and I am so grateful that I got to go there.

Dream.

If you know me at all then you know that I LOVE the band The National Parks. I just think they are so fabulous and I can not get enough of them, so when I heard they were playing a free show in park city you know I was obviously going to be there. 

At first I felt a little awkward about the whole thing. They were playing in the lobby area of a hotel and we were the first people there. So we sat down and just listened to the girl playing before them. The lead singer was standing just in front of us and the whole time I was just working up the courage to ask him to take a picture with me but by the time I was ready to do it he walked away to set up for the show. The whole time they were playing I was kicking myself for not just asking him. But they were obviously so good I enjoyed the show.


After they were done I was still being a baby and was too scared to go up and talk to them but luckily spencer wasn't going to let me be a baby and went and talked to him first. He was so so nice and I am so glad that we talked to him. And I obviously got my picture so I am not mad that I achieved that life dream.


I think I love them even more after talking to them because they were so cool. So if you don't know about The National Parks go and look them up right now! They even released a new song last week so you better go buy it.

Yesterday

So I realize that yesterday's post may have been a little dramatic.

I didn't actually realize that it was all that dramatic until the lovely Courtney called me to see how I was doing. 

I wasn't trying to be dramatic or overly emotional. I was just stating how I felt/feel.

But now I can honestly say I feel better. I spent yesterday morning sleeping, cleaning my room, and catching up on some laundry. It is amazing what just a little bit of physical straightening can do for your internal mess. I feel like just having a cleaner space helped me have a cleaner head. 

A little order can go a long way. 

So I feel better and am moving forward to a hopefully less whelmed life. Any other tips on how to have a more peaceful life?

 (As you can tell my resolution is going really well....not)

Overwhelmed.

Do you ever have times where you just feel overwhelmed? Not necessarily overwhelmed by all you have to do but overwhelmed by life in general?

Like there is just too much.  

There is too much talk about school. There is too much talk about graduating. There is too much thinking about grad school. There are too many things I want to say. There are too many thoughts. There are too many things I want. There are too many things I have. There are too many options. There are too many people. There are too many activities. There is too much unknown. There is too much known. There are too many emotions. There is too much life.

And all of these equally important and good things are vying for my attention at the same time. 

So I just end up in a little ball of  distress unable to do anything. 

Please tell me I am not the only one that feels this way sometimes.

Burritos.

I have a slightly large obsession with burritos. 

I am partial to chipotle burritos but I don't even care where they come from. Honestly I would be perfectly happy eating a taco bell burrito (don't judge me!).  If I could eat a burrito every day I would so when I saw this buzzfeed article I knew it was all about me. Hopefully you enjoy this as much as I did.
