How what should've been a crappy week turned into an awesome one




This morning I wrote a research paper. Every single night this week, I told myself, "Okay. Tonight is the night. You are pulling an all-nighter and writing this paper," but in the grand tradition of Academic Jordyn, it got written on the last possible day. Here are the things I did this week instead of writing:
  • Went to an awesome concert in Salt Lake with Candace: Lady Danville, Lenka, and my high school fave Jack's Mannequin. It was SO FUN, especially when Jack's Mannequin partied like it was 2006 with the old hits "The Mixed Tape," "Bruised," and "Dark Blue". They even busted out some Something Corporate with "Me and the Moon"...I was freaking out.

    I would've loved to hear "Hurricane"...but I'm not complaining.

     Not to mention that I left the concert with a new favorite band, Lady Danville. They were a little bit mind-blowing, especially because they sounded amazing live. Love them.
    Me with the cute boys of Lady Danville
    Candace and me, completely psyched
  • Played Dreamphone until 4 AM with Sarah just because. It was rather epic, and I have zero regrets.
  • Watched Hocus Pocus
  • Talked for approximately 20 hours about dating/boys/kissing/the like with the rest of the One Club, aka the coolest girls most people know
  • Practiced the "Party Rock Anthem" dance moves
  • Learned the chords for "Breaking Free" on the guitar
  • Played just about every ward directory game you could ever invent
  • Bought a crimping iron for my Halloween costume
  • Hung out with my mom, who is in town :)
Pretty big week, I'd say.

For added fun, try to find which of these songs is a Disney song!

In the last hour, I've had very intense one-person dance parties to the following songs (which I deserved, because I finally found a foothold in this research paper I'm supposed to be writing and needed to celebrate):

  • "We Didn't Start the Fire"--Billy Joel
  • "It Makes Me Ill"--NSYNC
  • "Battlefield"--Jordin Sparks
  • "Let the Rain"--Sara Bareilles
  • "Since You've Been Gone"--Aretha Franklin
  • "First Date"--Blink 182
  • "Don't Stop Believin"--Journey
  • "Why Should I Worry"--Billy Joel
  • "Sister Christian (acoustic)"--Night Ranger
And that is why I value my 5 Star-rated playlist on my iPod more than any other playlist on there.

Now I have to walk to class. I wish it wouldn't be weird for me to dance my way there.

19 Hilarious Pictures Say 19,000 Words

Wow, isn't it just hilarious that I'm exhausted all day long and then it's 2 AM and I'm wide awake? My brain is taking its annual Fall Break, where I stop trying to do anything for school and become addicted to internet.

In honor of both the middle of the night and of Halloween (the witching hour, if you will...wow that is perfect. I can't even believe how perfect it is), here are some hilarious haunted house reaction pictures that I saw a couple of weeks ago on the "Best Week Ever" blog. If you don't laugh out loud at least once, let me know, and I'll comfort you and help you overcome the problem in your life that is making you so sad. These seriously made me laugh hysterically. Check out that link, too--there are about thirty other pictures that are also SO funny.






















Happy week before Halloween!

New and Improved Gob

Today I had to draw a map of BYU campus from memory, and here's what I drew:


What year am I? Oh yeah, a fifth-year. If my grades were better, I could claim to be a prefect. And yet I don't know the south side of campus for crap. I also forgot the ESC, in which I've had two classes.

In other news, I'm going to get married someday, and I'd like that marriage to be exactly like Will Arnett and Christina Applegate's on the new show "Up All Night". I also think I deserve to have Maya Rudolph as a best friend. And I'm officially addicted to this show.
