An assortment of magical delight...

Sunday, December 5, 2010

I just got back from seeing Disney's "Tangled" and boy, I do believe that I've found a new favorite. I enjoyed it so much, I bought the soundtrack on iTunes when I got back to my house. I tend to obsess over soundtracks, so it'll most likely be a staple in my car for a while...on top of all the Christmas music, of course.


I love Christmas a lot. I helped the parental unit carry down the boxes (no accidental tripping and falling into boxes this time around, (un?)fortunately), and they're just sitting in my living room, waiting to be opened. I love my parents, but the older I get and the more I observe their daily activities, the more I realize where I get my procrastination from. Can procrastination be gene-oriented? I should ask in Biology tomorrow.

Probably not, though.

So many people yesterday (and by so many, I think there were around four...) told me that I looked "cute." Cute. Me? I'm fairly certain that they all meant it as a compliment, but it really threw me off guard. I didn't try extra hard to get around that day or anything! Figures that might happen, having spent loads of money on expensive makeup over the past few years. I'll be honest in saying that I my day brightened a lot having heard them say this to me (after the whole initial confusion). I don't really receive compliments very often, and when I do, I don't really acknowledge them the way normal people do. I tend to twist them around, if that makes sense. I thinks it's some weird defense mechanism I have...against what, I don't know, but it's always been present in my life. Yesterday, however, was a different story, and I can't pinpoint as to why it was, but it was. I felt sunnier yesterday for sure.

That being said, I think that it's pretty important to acknowledge the goodness and beauty in people more often. I feel like so much of what we talk about in all aspects of humanity is critical and pessimistic. The idea of paying it forward really does pay off in the end, you know? It's sad that this concept is just an "extraordinary" idea instead of something that's constant and normal.


Tomorrow's Monday. Two weeks left. What in the world.


Oh my oh my oh my....

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Goodness, me! It's been quite a long time since I've written anything! Well, anything substantially creative, that is. Are blogs creative? I suppose they can be, eh?

Life's good, you know? Basically two weeks left of my last semester at college. Am I excited? Yes! ...I mean...No. No, I'm not. But I am. But being an adult sucks... except the whole 'not having any homework' part. However, I'm starting to suspect that even adult life has lots and lots of homework-y aspects to it. It's just called something different.

It's 11:34 pm, and I've just decided that I'm going to go grocery shopping. Like, right now. I mean, why not? There won't be a whole lot of people (I despise over crowded shopping centers), and I have nothing better to do besides homework... Bleck.

More posting needs to happen, doesn't it? DOESN'T IT, WORLD?!

It does. And so it shall.



Zero to Hero in No Time Flat

Some things have come up. Financial things. Nothing's certain right now, but I'll be making some rather large adjustments within the next three weeks. It's going to be rather busy and stressful, and I'm already feeling gloomy about it all, but I know that these next few steps are going to be for the better. So I'm going to leave this rather discreet for now, and discuss it further when things get rolling along. I just needed to get that out. It's been pent up since Sunday evening. blech.

Today started off really well until I started being mopey for no good reason. I woke up at the crack of dawn to go on a bike ride with my sister, and it was really refreshing! Sometimes I really appreciate gloomy weather, especially in the fall. Unfortunately, I only appreciate this gloomy day because it's fitting nicely with my gloomy attitude. I'm not really sure what my problem is... mixture of things, I guess. Maybe I've finally come down off of my "feeling good" high I talked about last post. Oh life. Must your ups and downs affect me so? Well, okay, fine. Have it your way.

I haven't written anything since May, people...MAY! I've been too preoccupied with other...things. Good things. Lovely things. People, actually. ANYWAYS, I've been (gladly) preoccupied, but man, my imagination is really starting to shake its fist at me! It hasn't been exercised in two months and I'm afraid once I let it out for a nice stroll down Creativity Lane, it's going to explode all over the place, thus leaving me a nice mess to clean up. That, or it'll be too lazy to do anything and I'll have to prod it a good hundred times. Either way, I need to get on the ball. Anyone have any extra motivation on hand? Anyone? Rawr.

Wow, my blogs are pretty boring, no? I blame my pent up imagination. IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT.

Someday I will be as talented as this kid and I will apply said talents to my BLOG. XD

Ode to Finding Contentment in Life

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I have discovered something.

I have discovered that when you're happy, and you make a conscious effort to be happy... good things come your way. Isn't that just special? Life seems terrific right now, and I couldn't be happier or more thankful. Sure, bad days like to show their nasty heads once in a while (last night at work, for example) but they seem pretty insignificant in light of the good days. And why waste time feeling pissed off? That has NEVER made me feel better about anything. I realize that I sound like someone that you'd typically hate--someone who's bright and bubbly and likes to sprinkle fairy dust on anyone who walks by... but I truly feel blessed. And thankful. And wonderful. And to be honest, part of me wonders if I'm feeling this way because I'm actually starting to grow up--maturing a bit. Hmm. I don't think there'll ever be a time when I won't be silly and child-like, but I do have this greater sense of importance all of a sudden. It's kinda cool.

In lighter news, school's approaching at a rapid rate, which is one thing I'm trying to stay positive about. It's going to be pretty weird going to school without all of my classmates (especially Dani, my wombmate), but luckily I've made some pretty sweet friends that are younger than me, and I know that there's fun to be had with them. *pokes Abby, Emily and Mindy* (even though Mindy's going to Northern Ireland! D:)

I'm in a terrific Harry Potter mood and most of it probably has to do with the fact that my sister Kristin and I geek out in front of her television every night, magicking up her screen with Harry Potter Lego for the Wii. You don't even KNOW how much fun this stinking game is! Sure, it's for children, but COME ON. It's Harry Potter... and Lego's... are you ever too old for either?! NO. And besides, it's caused me to pull the ole bricks out and crack the covers open again. My oh my how I've missed the wonderful world of Harry Potter. It's been far too long, I tell you! Oh, and speaking of the wonderful world of Harry Potter, Courtney and I are going to the theme park come December!!!!!!! SQUEEE! :O I honestly mean it when I say I'll be the girl that's sobbing in the corner of The Three Broomsticks, butterbeer in hand. Dream come true, man--DREAM COME TRUE. ^U^

You know, I've been wondering for a while now... emoticons. What are peoples thoughts on them? Do they belittle conversation? Do they add excitement? Personally, I think they're supah cute, however I'm not in favor of them appearing in every sentence. That's just ridonkulous.

Hmmm. Feeling pretty mellow. Guess we'll leave it at that for tonight.



There once lived a girl, and her name was Libby...

"Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.

Hello and good day. I am Libby. This is my brand spanking new blog that isn't very brand spanking new. I've had it for a while and it's been sitting on a dusty cyberspace shelf for quite some time now. I'm quite a clutter-y, eclectic person who hasn't ever really committed to things like this, but I've been turning new leaves left and right since I've gotten home from school, and I figured I'd give this whole "blogging" thing another go. Mmhmm.

Since it's 1:40 AM, and my sleep schedule is all whacked up from writing a crazy amount of fiction these past few nights, I'm gonna keep this entry short. I will leave you with three interesting facts.... all of which probably tie to my life.
Well, it's my blog, isn't it? Why would I leave three interesting facts about the Queen of England? I mean, she's a classy lady but seriously... I mean, SERIOUSLY...

Fact #A: I changed my major five times in college, all of which had to do with some form of art (music, visual art, theater, creative writing...even early childhood education--hey, little kids are the most imaginative beings on this planet, okay?). I had to stick with creative writing because it was the major I had the most credits in. If I had it my way, I'd make my own major out of a combination of all five of them.

Fact #2: I've been an aunt since I was eight years old. I have six nephews and two nieces and they are my favorite people in the world. They have the most amazing personalities ever and I have faith that each and everyone of them is going to positively rock the world someday.

Fact #D: I quote movies, t.v. shows and books like there's no tomorrow. I'll know I've met my true love when he quotes the entire letter Ignacio writes to Encarnacion to me in hopes of winning my heart....because he will have. I also have an internal juke box playing at all times. It's kind of nice.

That's all you get tonight. I know they were riveting facts, but please--try to contain yourself until my next brilliant post.

Peace 'n' blessins',

PS - The number order of my facts list is actually the order that Buzz uses in Home Alone when he's talking about Kevin being okay while he's stuck at home by himself. I apologize if you're mind's been blown. Yesssssssssssssssssssssss.

P.S.S - I'd also like to leave you with this picture. Just because it was an awesome cartoon.

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
