Sharing is Caring

I LOVE when people share funny videos or photos via email.

My cousin is always sending me the funniest or coolest or strangest forwards, and i delight in every single one of them.

Its amazing how a 5 second video can make your day.

Especially when they are videos like the ones i posted below. I think the people in the videos are probably way more grateful for the 5 seconds than i am. Check it out...

Those lucky ducks!!!

After watching these videos I feel lucky to say my closest call as of late was dashing to class this morning to turn in that gosh darn research paper!

OBSESSED

Have you seen Hunger Games yet? If not, don’t read this post because I just might make your expectations ridiculously high.


I LOVED it. I’ve seen it twice now and still have no complaints. The weird thing is, I don’t know why I love it so much it because it is sooooo twisted. I knew how disturbing it was when I read the book, but seeing the story on the big screen made it more real. The concept of the whole entire plot is well, sick and wrong. And for some strange reason I love love love it, can’t get enough of it.

They couldn’t have picked a more perfect cast; they couldn’t have done a better job following the book; the soundtrack music was incredible; and I have to say that while I was team Peeta in the books, I am team Gale in the movies. If you’ve seen the movie you probably understand my logic :)

Anyway.

The Hunger Games far exceeded my expectations.

Go see it!

thank you technology

Sometimes I don’t like living in a media saturated world…

The other day I was walking on campus and I saw three girls walking together, each furiously texting away on their cell phones. Clearly whoever they were each talking to on their phones made for better company than each other. So why were they even bothering to walk together?

Other times, I LOVE living in a media saturated world…

Like yesterday. My sister lives in New York and she had a baby. I was able to see pictures just moments after the birth. How incredible is that? Her little guy is sooooo cute! I can’t wait to see him in person. Thanks to all this great technology these days, I can show him off like the proud aunt I am. Take a look…

So thank you technology for briefly making NY seem a little closer than it really is.

If you haven't seen this already, you should definitely check it out. I promise its worth all 29 minutes!





I know we talked a lot in lecture about the negative impacts of Facebook; but i think this is one darn good reason why Facebook can be incredibly powerful and influential in a good way.

{how old is your soul}

Jason Mraz is, well, wonderful. His songs are dripping with musical genius that dare i say, **change my life.

I can't get enough of this particular song....




I think I've listened to this song or watched the music video everyday for at least a month. Obsessive? maybe. Worth it? totally.

My boyfriend makes fun of the part when the gospel chorus comes in, but that particular section gives me goosebumps the size of mountains every time i hear it. Oh man, what I would give for such a crystal clear voice! I guess I'll continue to live vicariously through artists like Jason Mraz...


Ps. if you decided to skip watching the video and just read what I wrote...you should seriously reconsider. I'm telling you--its
amazing.


*if you haven't learned from previous posts on this blog or my other blog...i tend to sound like a bit of a drama queen. But let me tell you a secret: i mean every little word i write!
