Make-Me-Happy Mondays


Dear blog,

I don't have enough time
to get all my work done
to study for every test
to get a full night's sleep
to see my friends
to eat
to breathe
to think.

Sorry I've been so absent and that this is a lame MMHM.

What made me happy today was: checking things off my to-do list.

Jesse y Joy

Downloaded this on Tuesday–two seconds after I found out it was out.


The problem with liking a group that isn't very famous in America is that you don't really hear when their new CD comes out, so you may end up hearing a few months late when you randomly check their MySpace!

This was only the second CD I've ever downloaded without listening to all the 30-second previews a bunch of times. (This was the first.) Jesse y Joy, a brother-sister duo, are just that good!

My fave songs on the new CD are "Nuevo Dia" and "Chocolate."

My faves on their last CD were "Mi Sol," "Espacio Sideral," and (almost typed y there) "Nadie Podra."

Seriously, listen to this. America is missing out.



And from their last CD:


MMM. So good. I cannot get over her voice.

Make-Me-Happy Mondays

I woke up in a foul mood today.

Okay, that's not actually true.

I woke up, glanced out the window, and found myself unable to differentiate between the sky and the road (or the trees or the grass or the buildings, for that matter). That's how gray and snowy it was. So I hit snooze and put my head back down on the pillow, knowing that when I got up five minutes later, I could check my phone and find a nice little emergency text message from the provost saying that all classes had been cancelled (and peace on earth and good will to men). I could read the text message, breathe a sigh of relief and contentment, and crawl back into my oh-so-warm bed.


But when my alarm did go off again and I did check my phone, I found no such text message.
I frantically logged onto the school web site and scanned for that little red and white Inclement Weather Update. No such update. Thus began the foul mood.

When I ventured outside, it was dreary as all get out. That's really the only word. DREARY.

I was mad at the ice on the sidewalk and the slush that soaked into the bottoms of my jeans and the wind that felt like icy needles against my cheeks and the snow that landed (and consequently melted) on my hair. GRRR was I mad.


I went to my first class and kept my purse in my lap the whole time because I couldn't exactly set it on the puddle that was our classroom floor. I went to chapel after that and kept my coat on the whole time because apparently the person who controls the thermostat is an eskimo.

Still in my foul mood, I made my way up the stairs after chapel to my 11:00 and guess what.

My prof. didn't show.

That's right. I had a cancelled class.

And just like that, my day brightened a little.

I had more time to do my work, more time to spend at lunch, etc., etc., etc.

And then guess what happened.

My 2:00 got cancelled, too!

That's right, folks, two cancellations in one day!
Two for three – I'd say that's pretty good!

So what made me happy this Monday was – you guessed it – cancelled classes.

I hope tomorrow and the rest of the week brings you (and me) some (more) of the same.

Jacob Black

This guy turned 18 today.


May Twilight fans everywhere feel significantly less creepy as a result.

Back to studying I go.

"See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."
Isaiah 43:19


















I wanted to blog about chapel, but don't think i could do it justice.
I will add the link to the podcast once it's uploaded.

(Also, it's 1:00 a.m.–hence the sloppy photoshopping on those statuses,
but seriously, it's creepy to upload peoples' FB statuses to your blog without their knowing,
so I had to do something.)

Make-Me-Happy Mondays

What makes me happy this Monday is lovely Katelyn!
(Backstory: Katelyn flew to Atlanta yesterday for surgery! Pray for her!)

Here is a song in her honor (complete with clips from her hit music video):

Party in the Operation Room
(sung to the tune of Party in the U.S.A.)

She hopped on the plane at LEX
With a big-A duffel bag
Off to the good ol' ATL
Where the docs are gonna make her well

Photobucket

Jumped off the plane
In ATL for the thousandth time
Looks to her right and she sees the Coca-Cola sign
It all looks so urban
Blacks, whites, Asians, even a man in a turban!


Her tummy's turning as she arrives at the hospital
Too much pressure, and she's nervous
But then the nurse turns on the radio
And the Hoedown Throwdown is on
And the Hoedown Throwdown is on
Yeah, the Hoedown Throwdown is on!

So she puts her hands up
They're playing her song,
And her butterflies fly away
Pop, lock, polka dottin' it like yeah
Countrifyin' it like yeah
Yeah, she's got her hands up
They're playing her song
She knows she's gonna be okay
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!


The docs come in with their white lab coats
They're all watching her break it down
Like, who's that chick zig-zag, step 'n' slidin'
She's gotta be from out of town


The song is over, but the docs are dancing too now
They miss the steps, so she shows them what to do now
They're all putting hawks in the air
The surgeon walks in and gives them all the death stare


Her tummy turns again when she sees the look in his eyes
Too much pressure, and she's nervous
But then the nurse turns the radio dial
And the Hoedown Throwdown is on again
And the Hoedown Throwdown is on again
Yeah, the Hoedown Throwdown is on again!

So she puts her hands up
They're playing her song,
And her butterflies fly away
Pop, lock, polka dottin' it like yeah
Countrifyin' it like yeah
Yeah, she's got her hands up
They're playing her song
She knows she's gonna be okay
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!


When she feels like hoppin' on a plane
Back to Wilmore, Kentuck-ay
Something stops her right away
The radio plays her song, and she feels okaaaay

So she puts her hands up
They're playing her song,
And her butterflies fly away
Pop, lock, polka dottin' it like yeah
Countrifyin' it like yeah
Yeah, she's got her hands up
They're playing her song
She knows she's gonna be okay
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah
Party on operation day!

Love you, Katelyn.

Dear John

The girls and I went to see this last night.


I had looked forward to it for months, and I liked it (for the most part), but most of my friends didn't.

Did you see it and/or like it?

If you haven't seen it yet, take tissues!

I made this in the caf today.

And I was so proud of it that I used my phone to take a picture!


It was a modification of my sister's recipe.
Seriously,

Tortilla from the mainline
+
Chopped mushrooms from the salad line
+
Chopped tomatoes from the taco line
+
Slice of cheese from the sandwich line (then ripped up and distributed evenly)
+
The sandwich smasher (best thing in the whole caf)
=
One amazing sandwich

Yummm.

Make-Me-Happy Mondays

I am a horrible blogger because it has been a week since my last blog and because my page presently displays the last three Make-Me-Happy Mondays!

I've just been so busy with school lately! For the first few weeks, I was still kind of easing back into college, and this week college went BAM! DO A TON OF WORK!

Not giving up on Make-Me-Happy Mondays, though!

What Makes Me Happy this week is doppelgängers!

Apparently, it's National Doppelgänger Week, so a lot of people on Facebook switched their photos to celebs that they look like! I switched mine to Miss Anne Hathaway.

Anyway, I've gotten such a kick out of seeing my friends' celeb doubles.
I have picked some doppelgängers for my friends who blog!

Miss Taylor is Jessica Alba

Lovely Sarah is Julia Stiles

Dear Marie is fellow French-woman Audrey Tautou

Beautiful Anna is Emma Roberts

Luscious Lola is Winona Ryder

And adorable DJ is Miss Isla Fisher!

I have such lovely friends!
