If you don't have a song
To sing you're okay
You know how to get along

If you don't have a date
Go out and sit on the lawn
And do nothing
'Cause it's just what you must do
Nobody does it anymore

No I don't believe in the wasting of time,
But I don't believe that I'm wasting mine

If you don't have a point to make
Don't sweat it
You'll make a sharp one being so kind
And I'd sure appreciate it
Everyone else's goal's to get big headed
Why should I follow that beat being that I'm
Better than fine

In the words of Margot Tenenbaum 
"Im in a rut and i need a change."

is it fall yet...?

i like fall for a few reasons. reasons i dont really feel like listing. but just know that
fall is going to be oh so good.

I'm a list person. i have to make lists all the time. but they have to be in my hand writing and lately they have to be on my "list" paper. I'm weird i know.

i saw paper heart. it was SO funny. i found my self drooling over Michael Cera the whole time. but i loved it. and you love it.

I woke up to day in a panic. i had a dream that i missed the first day of school. so when i woke up i though it was legit. i hurried out of bed and got ready and then realized that school doesn't start until next wed. i guess since I've been talking to friends who start school today, i subconsciously thought i did too.

oh sweet postman!

have you ever had a good mail day? well i had one the other day. i had a crappy long day at work and when i got to my mail box i debated even opening it because it being Tuesday, the weekly adds would be lingering in the box and i always feel bad just putting them in the recycling bag... but i did. i opened it. and inside patiently waiting was two netflix movies, a post card from mom over seas, this months Nylon mag. and a random check from work i was not expecting, and the Rachael Yamagata vinyl for her elephants album! what a good mail day.

yesterday i worked a double at work. i was there from 7am- 11pm it made for a long day. and THEN when i was walking home i almost got hit by a car. toats his fault. i had the signal to go. he honked at me all crazy. i pointed to the walk sign and smiled out of fear. and then continued on my walk home. though i make this sound casual, he stopped literally four feet away from me and if he wasn't in a newer Toyota I'm pretty sure i would have been hit.

three really good movies Ive seen recently:
Maude and Harold
Annie Hall
Paper Heart
all really good.

i watched S. Darko, a sequel to Donnie Darko....i didn't like it so much, and it was just as confusing as Donnie Darko. but i guess when your dealing with time travel how could it not be confusing?

Ive been very disappointed with stuff white peple like lately. i don't know if its the fact that i check it so often, that it feels like they NEVER post new ones, or what. but they need to start keeping it fresh.

today is the last day of finals. thank Buddha! i do not think it should be legal for there to be school during the summer. it doesn't even make sense to me.

Is it weird that i like to make my bed? I heard that making your bed in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. i agree. though I'm not sure what tone it sets...

I got asked today if i am a sixty-year old trapped in a 20 year old body. i don't know if this was intended to be a compliment or an insult. I'm going to go with compliment because the boy then asked me on a date. and hes cute. so even if it was an insult, i ll let it slide.

I have a twitchy eye. But not all the time. It mostly happens Sundays at church, Mon, Wed, & Fri, mornings between 7:30 and 9:20 when i have math, and Sat. nights when I'm working with odd people at night. Alyssa says it has something to do with stress. Church, math and work...i can see how that would be a stress issue.

I am currently in Anthropology class and there is a little Korean boy (OK hes not a "little" boy, but he looks like it) and he fell asleep during our movie and he keeps passing gas. and the stench is almost unbearable. and the worst part is hes sleeping so he doesn't even realize hes doing it. poor boy.

i just realized that people in salt lake city either smell really good or smell really bad. there is no middle ground on this one.

Sunday, oh Sunday

Sunday is such a weird day to me. i don't really have any where to go besides church. and if i do go any where i feel like I'm not supposed to be there because its Sunday. its an odd feeling

These make me laugh:

These make me fat(and its literally right around the corner from me. a little taste of France. its fabulous.:

This makes my heart melt. i want one. but i want it to stay this size.

i live next to an elderly home. so i see lots of these on a daily basis. my favorite is the old man who is over weight in the electric wheel chair. he sits out on the side walk in his chair a good part of the day and is always outside when im walking home from work. he always asks if i "want to raaaace?!" and then kind of scoots forward on his chair....

Things I Currently Love


Young Urban Mormons

I find it amusing, and very accurate.
500 Days of Summer/ Cutest on screen couple of the year:

I was SO excited to see this movie, and the fact that i saw it on student discount Tuesday only made it better. When I left the theater i had mixed feelings about the movie its self. ( because we all know i have a women crush on Zooey, so the actors wasn't the problem what so ever) This movie pulled at my heart during the whole film. i started to feel bi-polar. They had my emotions all over the place. So, that tells you there's good acting. In the end, i love this movie. Its one of those that i will probably go to when i want to be anti social on a Saturday night after work by myself.

Hands down, best place to get a Veggie Sandwich any day of the week. They put balsamic vinegar on their bread instead of mayo or what not. And its not necessarily the food that is so good, but rather the customer service, and the hot, older man Ryan, who always remembers how Alyssa and i like our orders. its just great.

I tend to go to DI at least three times a week. Lame i know. BUT, its right down the street from me, so its legit. They always have something i like (notice i didnt say need) and i always like a good deal. Alyssa and I volunteer at the one in welfare square. were pretty tight with the people that work there now... haha ok. maybe not. but we like to act like we are. We got to sort books yesterday. It was fun, minus the fact that i ended up with a whole stack to buy and i almost got tackled for an Andy Warhol art book. that was lame, because i lost.
M. Ward/ Gallivan Free Concert Series:
I can listen to M. Ward all day, every day. In fact i almost have. And im ok with it for now.
These shows are what got/ are getting me through the summer. I get one day off a week and that one day is the day i go to these shows. Jenny Lewis, bon iver, sonic youth, m. ward, iron & wine..just to name a few. (p.s. this picture is inaccurate, because i ALWAYS stand in the front row. i dont do this back row, cant see, business)
And lastly

Slow Train, The Green Ant & Misc. And Broadway SLC in General

These are all places i also go to on my day off before the concert. Slow train is basically my vinyl collection dream in one building. they have new artist, old, up and coming and even underground hip hop. its amazing. The green ant is a vintage and modern furniture with Misc., which is a vintage clothing shop. both uber amazing places if you like vintage/retro attire and furniture. Broadway gives you that feeling of serenity. you know the one when you wake up early, on your own. (by early i mean like 5:30 or 6:00 ish) and you walk down the street and your the only one around and the air is fresh and the sun is still coming up...yeah that feeling....
