Best Slideshow Song Ever

I think I like everything about this song. I like that he plays it to her and she is sort of sleeping. I like the lyrics. I like how it is just a voice and a guitar (all one really needs in life somtimes). I like that is is simple. And I like that it makes for a good slideshow song, and helped me realize what an awesome past few semesters i’ve had. I am so glad to have such awesome friends and I am so proud of myself for fulfilling so many of my goals.

Cheers : )

Awesome Moments

  • Living on adrenaline and other chemicals instead of food for a few days
  • Dancing.
  • Dancing to SARA BAREILLES new album. String cover of “King of Anything” = win.
  • Pain from dancing.
  • When 20 minutes feels like 2 hours… Best. Massage. Ever.
  • Being the last ones awake and talking till you fall asleep
  • Forgetting who your friends are and where you fit in, and then remembering and feeling as if you never left : )
  • Waking up filled with creative inspiration from trippy dreams and night visions.
  • Youtube.
  • Pineapple.
  • How creepy would it be if I just sat and watched the kids across the street from my house having a garden hose fight and climbing a tree? They are so awesome!

Dreams do come true.

My last post was about wishes. I’m so grateful for all that I have in life and for all the wonderful things i’ve experienced. I’m going to share a few of my wishes that have come true. I am very lucky that many of my dreams-come-true can be condensed into photos. With the help of this tutorial site I jazzed them up a bit.

I dreamed of going to New York City. (2006)

At one point I wanted to be the Wicked Witch of the West more than anything. (2008)

This video is from right after I found out I got the part. It was an awesome day. I’m quite embarrassed to post it, I’m crying and not sure what to do with myself but it’s a part of my history. Don’t judge me hahaha.

I wanted to be part of Disneyland’s Year of a Million Dreams. (2008)

I wished to be Belle from Beauty and the Beast : ) (2009)

I wished to learn Trapeze. (2005)

I dreamed i’d make films and win awards. (2009)

I dreamed of meeting rockstars. (2007 + 2008)

I dreamed i’d have amazing friends.

I dreamed i’d fall in love.

I wished to go to University.

I am so blessed to have been offered all the opportunities that have come my way! Thank you.

A dream is a wish your heart makes! < 3

May your dreams and wishes become reality.

My Hug Bucket

The vlogbrothers recently did a video about “Hug Buckets”. Basically,  A “Bucket List” is a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket (die) and a “Hug Bucket” is a list of people you want to hug before you kick the bucket. Hugs are great. I used to be really bad at giving hugs but I think through practice I am improving. Here are some lists i’ve made. Feel free to share yours!
