the airplane ride felt like a funeral.

but it was just the right dose to get through the last few weeks of school.

(don't worry, the bryton that you all know and love
will post more pictures. just you wait.)

i'm already cold.
sigh.

i was told this was blog worthy


(and kind of chewed out for not posting)
so this is the story...

down at the shakespeare festival, it was day two of interpreting. my team, kelly, and i were sitting outside preparing for the musical of our lives. it was about half an hour before we were to go into the auditorium and take our seats in front, when all of sudden i felt something wet drop on my hair. we were under a tree so i though it was water from the tree, dew from the morning, a stray raindrop, really anything. not even close. i reach up to the "wet" spot, bring back my hand and there is bird doo-doo on my fingers. a bird just pooped in my hair right before we were to walk inside, present ourselves as professional interpreters, with the lights directly over our heads. all i could do was turn to kelly and start hyperfentalating. all she could do was laugh. so i ran inside to the bathroom and tried to scrub out the white pasty mess with the remaining 15 minutes left i had. talk about stress right before interpreting a musical. not something to help calm the nerves.

i get the white crap out (literally) and now i have a wet greasy spot in the middle of my hair. with the lights i'm sure i looked shiny.

the funny part of this story is that just a day later, kelly saw this sign... she texted me this pic with the words "thinking of you".

wish that was a sentimental text.
that sign is actually my phone's background to remind me to never ever prepare for an assignment under a tree.
lesson learned.

a fresh perspective

my little bro won a speech contest about honoring america.

i thought his speech was pretty creative, genius, and talented.

video

what makes this speech even more special:
how he holds his suit coat,
my nephew in the background,
how he walks around like he owns the place,
and he is only 13.

again,
genius.

studies show

that one dark chocolate bar a day
relieves stress.

now i don't have to justify eating my sweets.
love how guilt turns into a stress free day.

quite frankly

i liked that shia labeouf had to go to transformer heaven to get the matrix.
he had to earn it.

lesson of the day:
if you watch a movie with no expectations,
it will exceed your expectations.
that's all.

go shawty


it was my birthday.


and i got a polaroid camera.
(side note...don't you just love my halloween outfit? very fitting
and the background...it's grandma's house. what are ya gonna do...)


exactly what i wanted.


but that's not all i got...
mr. jake surprised me to dinner at the roof.

emotions that ran through me:

definitely surprised,
curious as i have never been there,
pampered as rolls magically appeared on my plate,
snooty as i could pick and chose my food,
stuffed as i ate all that food,
and then guilty seeing the bill...

but your birthday is only once a year right?
and my motto is to spend spend spend on such an occasion.


and then to top of the night,
and to walk off our stuffed tummies,
we walked around the temple grounds.

thanks babe for a birthday with a view!
(and for an excuse to wear my birthday dress. yay!)

can't wait till next year...
