Your request is my command...

Well sometimes. Basically if they are simple enough XD

Upon special request I will put up a video of me playing my uke.

(This is my only video so far because it was the only one I recorded during break. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and it is not that easy to get a perfect recording) I even added background vocals at one part, I had to edit it... it was a lot of work basically XD

As I say in the video, I was bored and needed something to do during break so I made this for my friend and the guy she has a crush on.

I LOVE this song! It is Parachute by Ingrid Michaelson.

Oh my!

WOW! I have been awarded...

This is exciting. Thank you Peri for being such a wonderful person in my life.

Okay. On to 7 things I like and 5 people I shall share this award with.
    1) I am awesome in bed. I can sleep for hours! (Yea... I know where some of your minds went XD)

    2) I can not go long spaces of time without singing/playing ukulele/guitar... basically any form of musical expression.

    3) Sometimes I procrastinate buy buying things for great deals online. I have been staying warm because of my awesome buys (but now that I have my warm necessities... i don't think I can do this for the rest of my college career :( )

    4) Sometimes I love watching people do the craziest shit. (This works exceptionally well at parties.) It's kinda funny AND I actually remember all the stupid stuff they did, while they don't.

    5) I love my tattoo and am DYING to get a new one! Spring break, come faster.

    6) I'm glad to be really bonding with two of the girls in my dorm. We are all wonderfully antisocial most of the time so it works out :)

    7) I really like the feeling after a workout. That feeling on invincibility, weird I know, but this is me. :)

Now, I share this with:
Sweet pea
and my last person is any one that feels like procrastinating :)

As a procrastination tactic on this miserable saturday night. (It's miserable because I NEVER get sick, yet I have been getting a sore throat and a runny nose. Basically the other girls in my dorm are trying to convince me that I am sick, but this is so rare for me that I can't recognize it.)

New Year... New rant

I'm not too big on the whole New Year's Resolution thing
but I have to admit that I did make goals for last year.
In 2011 I:
- I successfully began to read up on and just general research on veganism. (I even had bouts of time when  was eating vegan)
- Started the 100 theme challenge (didn’t finish, but I was doing that for more fun just so I could keep writing my poetry)
- Began running like crazy. (I was that one crazy college kid that was always in the gym even though I’m not in a sport)
Yup… So I just general things that seem like fun and would be awesome to do. I don’t make resolutions to “completely change myself”. Fuck that. If people really want to change their outlook, they can do so any day, any time, any where. No need to wait for January 1st or monday ect. If you want it, do it.

This is what I put on Tumblr. It just irks me sometimes that some people are making all these resolution, and to the people with real intention behind it, more power to them; however, the ones that just feel that "It's a new year, so it's gonna be different now". No. It's not like the universe is just going to suddenly make everything easy just because it is now 2012.

This is why I am a proponent for people that start in the middle of the year or week or day. It doesn't matter when you start, just that you do. You are the same person you were yesterday... the only difference is what you do.

Enough of my rant. Sorry if this feels like a downer, but I'm a realist and I want people to do things because they want real change, not just cause it's a new year and everyone is saying "I want to lose weight"

happy new year!
