I hate goodbyes.

I have never been good at goodbyes. I kind of just like to peace out, under the radar, and hope no one notices.

I live my life in a constant Irish Exit cycle.

Saying goodbye hurts. I love the people that I am friends with. When you are friends with me I am friends with you for life. But sometimes life gets in the way and we fall out of touch. This is sad to me.

Thanks to everyone that has influenced my life so far, especially those that I have met and have stuck with me through 4 years of college. I will remember you even if we don't talk to or see each other again. You have impacted me. And for those that will continue on with me, thanks for your continued support and good luck to all of us.

Welcome to my life.

Mormon Movie Trivia Answers

And now the answers:

1. The Princess Bride
This is one of the greatest movies ever made. This movie is how I determine if someone is a good person. For reals. If you don't like this movie you are a disgrace to humanity. And probably a serial killer.

2. Newsies
Christian Bale. A young Christian Bale. Singing and dancing. In New York. Love it.

3. Pride and Prejudice
The Keira Knightley version, not the BBC 6 hours version. Don't get me wrong, I love Colin Firth but the actress they chose to play Jane, aka the incredibly gorgeous Bennett sister, is not attractive at all. Really not believable guys. Darcy is the perfect man. I love him. I don't care if it is a highly unobtainable ideal and it's weird to love a fictitious literary character. We WILL be together.

4. Enchanted
This movie was hilarious and a refreshing take on the average fairy tale. Well played Disney, well played.

5. Tangled
This movie is always suggested to be the Sunday movie. It always wins. I don't know why this movie is so infectious but I can seriously watch it over and over again and not get sick of it. The Peter Priesthoods love it as well.

6. The Best Two Years
The quintessential Mormon Missionary movie.

7. Sons of Provo
I first watched this in Middle school. I still know all of the lyrics to the songs and can recite them from memory. I am a sweet spirit.

8. Every Disney movie in existence.
Okay, I couldn't really find a quote that was in every movie but it had to be included and I couldn't be expected to write down every Disney movie, even though I have watched them all consistently throughout my entire life. Cuz let's be honest. We Mormons love Disney. Especially the females. Probably because most have a delusion that they are still a princess, despite being 20 and not 7 (but more on that later).

Hope you enjoyed playing.

Graduation Anthem

This is the anthem for this coming week of Graduation. I am too full of feelings. Music is the only way.
Welcome to my life.

Mormon Movie Trivia

Now, I am one of those Mormons who has self-professed excellent taste in films and will see whatever great film I so desire despite its rating. However, there are certain movies that are just prevalent in Mormon culture (mostly for the girls) that I thought we would list them in fun, see if you can guess the movie from the quote sort of way. Here we go:

1. "Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."

2. "You get your picture in the papes, you're famous. You're famous, you get anything you want. That's what's so great about New York."

3. "I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."

4."No! No! No! Over and over! When you keep saying "No!" it just makes me so... Sometimes you make me so!...angry.

5."I didn't want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder."

6."We're goin' to get a bike and place me some Book of Mormons."

7."Mormons can be Buddhists too!"

8. "Dreams..."

Can you guess the right movie?
Answers will be posted tomorrow.

A Follow Up Post

I have decided to qualm the questions of others and write a follow up post to the A Possible Obsession. Namely, to list the reasons as to why I answered those 3 most essential questions as I did.

You may remember them:

1. Fox
2. Poodle
3. Raptor

Now, here are the reasons:

Answer for #1: The fox is my spirit animal because they are clever, beautiful, and wiley. They are wild animals. And they are athletes. As am I.

Answer for #2: People have said I look like a poodle because I have really crazy, wild, curly hair. And lots of it. I was offended at first until Erica told me that they are hunting dogs. I like that. Poodles are regal, stoic, and loyal. As am I.

Answer #3: Raptors are totes the best dinosaur. Ever. Did you see Jurassic Park? They also make the best sounds. Enough said.

So, that's that.

I've shown you mine. Now it's time to show me yours. Please comment. Please do.

Who needs a wedding when you have Facebook?

Facebook has become a wedding announcement board. When I see that a distant FB acquaintance is engaged on my news feed it really makes me feel connected to them and feel involved in their lives and the progression of their relationship. Yeah...

New people are getting engaged now daily, or so it seems. This is what runs through my head when I see the little heart announcing the engagement of yet another couple:

Welcome to my life.

I'm bad at breaking up

Or really good.

I guess it just depends on your perspective.

My breakup was a mutual one. The problem wasn't that we had stopped liking each other, it was a much larger, more complicated issue that I will most likely blog about sometime in the future.

So, when you haven't seen someone that you really like in a while your hormones kind of go crazy and you end up jumping them. Absence does make the heart grow fonder.

I know it can't last. But right now I am just enjoying spending time with someone I like and who likes me.

Being in a relationship is hard.

Ending one is even harder.

Welcome to my life.
