Geez louise

Things I Can't Stop Doing Lately:

1. Having one-person dance parties to this song (and totally crushing on Pharrell, whom I just found out is a whopping 38 years old even though he looks 26):

2. Watching "Mad Men"
     a.) Having a love/hate relationship with Don Draper...STOP KISSING ALL THOSE GIRLS, geez louise


     b.) Breathing a sigh of relief in regards to Peggy's haircut in Season 3

3. Thinking about/craving Chik-Fil-A

4. Coming up with wonderful ideas for my 23rd birthday party
     a.) Repeat of the great middle school dance party of 2010?
     b.) Britney Spears tribute? (B and I have the same birthday) Watch this tribute from this year's VMAs; it literally gives me goosebumps at the end when they're all dancing together. I love it soooo much.

Get More: 2011 VMA, Music
    c.) Combine those two ideas, since we were all jammin out to Britney in middle school anyways?

Major decisions I'm working with here, people.

These problems matter

I'm in the middle of writing an essay about unrequited high school things, and all I can think of is this:

Seriously though, everyone is dumb in high school. I was SO DUMB.

That's all for now.

Jordyn 1, Stranger on Pinterest 0

Today during my ritual browsing of the "Everything" tab on Pinterest, I saw this picture pinned to a photography-themed board with the caption, "He looks so happy."

She is so right! He does look happy, doesn't he? What a touching scene of pure happiness in nature. Except that this is a robot elephant from Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. Not so artsy or cultured NOW, are we??!?!

Needless to say, I did not comment on the pin and break the news to the girl who posted it. I thought that would be a little too strident*, so I took the passive-aggressive high road and whined about it here.

Commence 17th grade


Things that are different since then:
  1. The Blogger Dashboard--but I can dig it. I just can't find some things sometimes. Like how to title a post? [edit: I found it]
  2. I now live on the third floor of my building instead of the first floor. I will always remember the freaking AWESOME times of that apartment with quite an eclectic and awesome mix of all know who you are. Seriously I really, really, really, really love almost all of you.
  3. My new roommates are my oldest friends in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Excessive punctuation NECESSARY. Every day is the BEST. Carly and I have wands* and duel* (but never using Sectumsempra. Or A.K., obviously) on a regular basis, and Tabby and I are perfecting every song from her Backstreet Boys Millenium sheet music*. And here are the three of us on the pioneer trek in high school.
4. I am in my last semester of classes**! It is insane in the membrane. I wish I'd had a blog when I was a freshman that I could link you to...oh well, I will just tell you what that blog would've said.

September 2007: OH EM GEE I AM IN COLLEGE I HAVE A DORM ROOM! I eat in the Cougareat everyday! I wonder if I will get fat! I watch "The Office" a LOT!
October 2007: OH EM GEE my new friends are SOOOOOOO COOOOOUUUUUUULLLLLLL! We are going to be figure skaters for Halloween! I bet we won't look slutty! [sidenote: we did]
November 2007: HOLY CRAP I have been here for two months already! I know everything there is to know about college! I am wise! Except I haven't been to my Geology 101 class in a week! I love Snickers ice cream bars from the dorm vending machines!
December 2007: I have bad grades. But I'm having FUN!

That's basically my first college semester in a nutshell. I think I've matured a little bit...I mean, I did just start watching "Mad Men"**...but I also still have legitimate trouble finding the MARB*, so I'm pretty sure I actually am the same person. (Not that I will ever need to go to the MARB ever, ever again)

5. I get to read young adult books ALL SEMESTER LONG since I'm taking Young Adult Literature aka English 420*. It is the BEST, since those are typically the only books I want to read anyways*.

Yes, things are pretty good. Oh, and I added up all the *kid and **adult things in these, and the kid things won by a freaking landslide with a score of 6 to 2.
