December 16

Not only is my birthday on December 16, but there are also other people who also have their brithdays on the 16th.

1. Jane Austin - she wrote Pride and Prejudice and some other books.

2. Beethoven - he composed some music back in his day.

3. Flo Rida - he's a rapper from Florida. That's where he gets his name. How original.

4. Kaine - another rapper. The goofy looking half of the Ying Yang Twins. He's the one on the left.

Also, December 16 was the day the the Battle of the Bulge started in 1944.
Man, I have the best birthday in the whole world.

A Drawing

Yesterday, Katie had her visiting teachers over, so Bryan and I hid in their study room and waited for them to leave. Bryan brought his computer back there as well, so we had a little drawing contest. I won't tell you what I asked him to draw, because he might put it online sometime. But, Bryan asked me to draw the following: a mouse, surfing on an ironing board, in a bowl full of tomato soup, with a giant putting his spoon in the soup and the mouse is going to surf into the spoon. The sun and birds are my own added specialty.

The Rexburg Po-lice

Ah, yes, the Rexburg Police Department.

Ok, so, here's the lowdown: we decided to go to Maverick (kind of like the Rexburg version of 7-Eleven), because we wanted to get some nachos and soda. So we went there and had a good time. The guy at the cashier made fun of what I was wearing (short shorts and a beater. He's a pretty cool guy), we got our food, and were sitting in Marks car just eating our food. All of a sudden, two cops pulled up on our right in the parking lot and just sit there. They didn't do anything, so we decided to go back to the dorm. Then one of them followed us out of the parking lot, and once we were on the road, he turns on his lights. And you know why? Because our windows were foggy and it was obstructing our vision.

Ok, so ha ha, that was funny. 

We continue down Main Street heading back to the dorms. We stop at a red light and see two more cops opposite from us waiting at the red light as well. We're joking at how funny it would be if we got pulled over again.
So, the light turns green and we start driving. And one of the cops makes a u-turn in the street, follows us a little and then turns on his lights as well. Wow, two pull-overs in less than five minutes. The second one was for having too many people in a car (we were all buckled), and one of the tail lights goes out periodically, and it just so did this night. 
Luckily, neither of the cops gave Mark a ticket or anything.

Well, there's a witty anecdote for you all. Do any of you have any funny police stories? I have some more, but I'll let you share.

Music and a cool job

Ok, so, I'm kind of weird, and what you are about to read may sound awkward.

I've spent the last 20 minutes on Youtube trying to find a video of the home screen of the Wii just to listen to the music.

And here is a good one:

I really like how it's ambient and all like that. It seems really rad. (Sometimes, late at night at home, I would play Alison's Sims 2 game on the Wii, and just sit there and listen to the music for a while. Hehe, I'm bad...)

I think that it'd be a really cool job to be a sound designer and write music for that sort of stuff and for commercials and what not. Kind of like the one guy from Juno who writes commercial music.

Either that job or an A&R rep. Or a natioanllaly syndicated radio personality. Or a flight attendant. Or a news anchor.

Don't worry, I didn't dye my lashes or anything. Instead, they kind of got burnt.

We had our FHE tonight at the dunes and we made a pretty monster fire. So, because the fire was so big and fiery, we decided to jump over it.

Now, don't get me wrong. I cleared that jump like a pro, but at the last second, I decided to turn my head and look back at the fire. That's when the flame hit my face.

It didn't burn or anything, but I could smell burnt hair. I figured "Oh, I probably just singed my bangs," but when I got 'home' it was a lot more than that. I had not actually burnt my bangs, but I had burnt some of my eyebrows, my eyelashes and part of my left side burn.

That's a lesson for you: always shave all bodily hair prior to fire jumping.

18 years, 10 months, 4 weeks, 1 day

That is exactly how old I am. And I was exactly 596,899,178 seconds old when I pasted that. After I saw the little thing at the top right of Anna's blog, I thought how cool it would be to have my age on my blog. So, I made myself a little counter thing. And yes, as you can tell from it, I AM a little black girl who holds a fairy wand while sitting in my red wheel chair. And, you can't really see it, but the caterpillar I am mowing down with my wheeled chair is saying "YEAH!" from his mouth.

Haha, does anyone remember from Backyard Baseball when you would click on the kid in the wheel chair and he would say "Hi, my name's Kenny Kawaguchi, and my legs don't work!"

Now that I'm away from home...

...I can do crazy things. Like dye my hair. Just because I was bored.
Yes, tonight we went to Walmart and myself and another guy dyed parts of our hair. I did some tufts on the left side of my head. I think it looks pretty cool, and I figured, "Hey, if it's all gonna fall out eventually, why not have some fun with it?" So I did. See?

As you can see, I tried the whole MySpace picture approach. Because that's what the kids are into these days. In the first picture, my hair is pulled over and in the second one it's just sitting there. So, yeah, hope you like it mom!

Yes, the snowfall was definitely worth 10 exclamation points. Here's the story:

Some peeps were going to go to the pool during the evening and invited to me tag along.
So i did.
After we were done, we went outside, and it was crazy snowing! We ran over to the football field and played in the snow there. We were having a snowball fight, and, thanks to my natural scent and rugged good looks, some girls came over and started throwing snow at us. We we played with them for a little bit but they left because they had to go work on homework. So we played a little longer and then went inside. It was definitely cool. Here are some pictures I took right as I woke up in the morning.

This is from my window. This is what Rexburg, ID looks like from my window.

Nothing super-cool has happened recently in my life. Halloween was cool. There was a dance at this place, but it was super hot (temperature wise) and tons of the local rebellious Rexburg youth were drunk/high, so we left and watched part of Cloverfield. We wanted to go trick-or-treating but I was informed that it is illegal for us College kids to do so in Rexburg. So, anyways, on Sunday, Jordan (my roomate) and I accidently slept through Stake Conference and then we woke up and went to Jordan's girlfriend's roommate's birthday festivities. It was fun. I gave her a picture of her riding a unicorn through space. Pictures are on Facebook somewhere if you want to look at them. Hmmm...what else. Oh yeah! We tried to go to the bi-weekly evening hip-hop class on Thursday, but no one was there! Probably watching the Office or something. So we did some cartwheels and played with some jump ropes and left.

That is the extent of my life in Idaho.
