Starting to Work Out

Ha... I've started working out... Today is day two. I am really tired. I ate lots of food afterwards and probably gained back all of the calories I burned tonight. Ha, and again... I've started working out again. And pushing myself.

If you see me walking funny tomorrow, you'll know why. But first off, let's see if I'm gonna make it out of bed in the morning. Ha!

Hot and Dangerous

Best date I've ever been on.
It was that fantastic.
I promise.
The day date,
the outfits,
the costumes,
just brilliant.
And nothing more.
Now to go into full detail of the night cause I'm too lazy to write it all in my journal.
(Brace yourself.)

I wake up around 11:00 cause I stayed up late with my crazy cousins.
I woke up and decided that I ought to start getting ready.
Slowly but surely.
Since I was staying at my aunt's house, I was the last one to get picked up.
I was cool with it.
We sported the back of Jordan's suburban.
We headed to Michael's house.
The idea was to do as many nerdy things as possible.

First we played Monopoly: Tropical Tycoon as couples.
Sadly we didn't win.
But that's okay. We still rocked it.

Then we played Super Smash Brothers: Brawl
Epic right? Right.
Andrew and I got second place in this one.

And then... surprise surprise...
I started a pillow fight.
Sorry it's blurry. But epically, Andrew and Izak got hit in the face just right and their eyes started watering.
The pillow fight ended after that...ha.
Then we played Signs and I am SOOOOO not good at that game. I stink at it.
We just hung out for a little bit and chilled. Talked. Hung out. Ya know... tipped over the recliner...
Ya know... it's just how we roll.

We're pretty much awesome like that. Here are a few quotes from the night:

Andrew: Jordan, you're bass sucks! It sounds like it's farting!

Jordan: *while playing Monopoly* Jared, Michael is a devil on your shoulder... and Izak is another devil on your shoulder.

Savanna: Hey Michael! Do you have any food?
Andrew: Michael, do you have any armpit hair?

So it was time to leave... I was sad... but excited to dress up as a nerd.
So I got back to the house. It was about an hour or so till they came back to get me. Me and Andrew looked sa-weet! But why should you take my word for it? See for yourself!

Man, I just can't get over how much I LOVE this!!!
I loved my outfit.
And his.
We were nerds in love for the night.
And we definitely played the part.
We met up with the other half of our group at Timp.
We wanted to be early so we didn't have to wait in line for pictures.
But I'm waiting to put those on in the end. Cause they're the bestest.
And the funniest.
So after we did pictures, we went to Maceys for dinner.

  1. You can't spend more than $10.
  2. You have 15 minutes.
  3. You have to buy something for yourselves as a couple and something for the group.

So then this was us, back at Michael's house... just eatin' our food. :)

So these are donuts...
It's story time.
We were racing Izak's car back to Michael's house from Maceys.
I was holding the donuts in one hand.
I was running into the house.
And the box gave out.
And the donuts landed all over the ground.
It was hilarious.
And yes, they got ate.
As far as I know, no one got sick.
And everyone just piled them back in the box while I sat on the ground laughing.
The end.
Andrew claimed that it was the funniest thing that happened all night.
I was pretty proud of myself after that.
Haha, lame huh?
Yeah, not really. ;)

We made fry sauce for our corn dogs.
Jordan and Kallie bought cold cereal and pop tarts.

Izak and Kylie bought Ramen for everybody to share. So... that's 10 packs of ramen... cooking at the same time.
You're right to think that it's a lot.

So here's all of us with our food! (minus a few people)
Trust me... we had TONS of food. I was dying to get to the dance so that we could burn off all of the calories we ate.
His shirt came untucked... haha!
And this is the picture before we went to the dance.
Epic we are.
I had an amazing night.
Best. Date. Ever.
I could go into more details.
But I don't wanna. :)
I love all of my nerdy buddies.
We create fantastic memories that I wanna remember FOR-EV-ER!
(name that movie anyone?)
I wish that it hadn't ended.
Just a few more things:
We watched Spongebob while we ate
and then after the dance
we played MarioKart.
Epic night.
I wanna go back to yesterday.

Read to the End to Find Out Who Asked Me!

But let's be honest.
(I didn't think I would.)

But now I can definitely cross it off my bucket list... that is if I make it to Saturday!!! Just watch: I'll come down with some sad, contagious fever thinger and flu and won't be able to go... haha *knock on wood*

Oh! And I found my camera battery! So I won't have to worry about not having any pictures from Saturday. I've got it all set out. My camera is all pretty looking and the screen isn't all scratched up anymore. It's magnificent. I absolutely love it!

Anyways, yesterday, while watching American Idol and attempting to do my Calc homework (all at the same time... ha), there was this loud and kick down the door knock. Dad opened the door and found a disk with my name on it. Haha... uh-oh. I knew exactly what it was.
(I was being asked to Bargain Ball.)

I had been pondering for weeks who I would end up going to Bargain Ball with if I ended going at all. My mind was racing. BreAnna was jumping up and down in excitement (which didnt' help me at all to be perfectly honest... and made me even more nervous...) So I open up the disc and there are these lyrics:
(Brace yourself.)

Yo, what up? This is as white as it gets, BOI!

Once upon a time, this kid went to school.
Believe it or not, he wasn't very cool.
He played D'n'D and checkers and chess.
At Star Wars trivia, he was the best.
Never had anything stronger than milk,
And his suspendas, they made outta silk.
His pants are high with his dice on the ground,
At the comic book store is where he'll be found.

But when she walks in, his heart just stops
He's sweatin' under his argyle socks.

Have you ever heard the story of the two nerds in love?
It's the story of you and me.
A nerd kid and his girl sent from heaven above,
With you I'll get to level three.

You make me feel like I've been struck by a lance,
Will you go with me to the Bargain Ball Dance?

(Listen to the end to hear who's asking!)

Haha, yeah, I was laughing and shaking and all that mumbo-jumbo. It was funny.
(You had to see it for yourself.)
Bre and I went into my room and put the CD into the player.
I can't take this high a level of anxious intensity.
Okay... another confession:
(I pressed the fast-forward button...)
BUT WHAT IS A GIRL SUPPOSED TO DO!!! when there's like a minute of this weird techno-polka going on. It didn't help!
Then all of a sudden my sister goes off on how she knows who it is.
(or at least the 3 guys that it could be)
Haha, yeah, she was over at the house that they were making it at.
And listened to them make it.
Funny. It is.
So you're probably wondering who it is huh?
Well, let me tell you how I responded first. Or better yet, let me show you :)
("What? You have a picture?" Duh...)
This is my response. That I drew last night instead of doing my Physics homework. Haha, yes, I know. I'm a terrible person. But it's cute isn't it???

I dropped it off into his first period class (the only one that I knew he had cause I had the same class but second period...) and it was awesome. Haha, he also told me that at lunch that it was the fastest response he had ever gotten. Well, of course! I hate waiting for responses. And as far as I know he's only asked one other girl to a dance.
(Kylie Thomas to Homecoming.)
So I was faster than Kylie... haha. Awesome.
Alright. It was

Andrew Thomas :)

Love that kid. A lot. And this is the cool red envelope that I found and put his picture in.

I can't wait for Saturday. Really. I'm stoked. This weekend is gonna be wicked sweet and totally chill. Seriously for real.

This is probably why I can't score a date... Ha...

This is probably why I can't score a date... haha, I do this on my weekends with my cousins because I have nothing better to do. But I'm gonna be honest. I love them and this is usually what I prefer to do... that may explain a lot of my dating troubles... ha, ah well. I like making a fool of myself. Who am I to kid? Seriously.

This is Maddi and Savanna's jar of words. It's full of words... that we wrote on paper. Don't know how many are in there, so don't ask.

As Nikki would say, "This is a lime on steroids."
So we play "what if" too. I'm not gonna put those on here though... there are FAR too many... ha... we played for hours... I guess this is who I am. And I'm alright with that. :)

Sundays at Tiffany's

I just currently finished (like 10 minutes ago) one of the cutest books ever. "Sundays at Tiffany's" definitely has the cute factor. James Patterson, who is one of my FAVORITE authors EVER, (in case you're not familiar with him), writes the "Maximum Ride" series also. Those are the only books that I can think of that any of my known readers might have heard of. Anyways, this book is magical, heart-breaking, and, like we all love, has a happy ending. I'd recommend it to anyone in the mood for a cute, sappy, romantic, love story. It's a quick read as James Patterson always makes his chapters short and sweet. It's definitely not a favorite, but I enjoyed it a lot :)

Next book on the long list of books to read: Among the Hidden (no... I haven't read them yet...)

Glow in the Dark Stars and Chocolate Chip Cookies :)

This is our service project. It's sweet. Love it. Breathe it. Smell it. You're jealous. I see it on your face... :)

(Sorry I couldn't rotate it. Computer being dumb  :P)

I'm Always Up For a Good One

Don't you just hate it when your computer freezes up and you're trying to hurry fast to get something done (or like... 3 things...)? I do. And that's what happened so in sitting here and waiting for the computer here to reboot itself so that I can hurry and get this crap done and go to bed. I don't know about any of you, but I'm tired of not getting enough sleep! Although it is entirely my fault and I will blame myself because frankly.. It is my fault... :/ whoops...?

Well, there are quite a few reasons why I haven't been getting lots of sleep at night.

1.  Procrastination

It's one of my biggest flaws. Although I have been working on it. In fact I've been working in prioritizing somewhat and getting just the necessities done at night. (ya know... The night before it's due?) I would also like to thank my good friend spammy who gave me the perfect solution to my problem of procrastination. As I was going on about what I had to suffer through tonight while I agonized in pain, first he came up with the idea to prioritize. Okay... Alright. Prioritize. But what happens when everything is on the same level of importance and I'm not quite sure what to do about it? Yeah, maybe I should try and get that one past him... Hmmm... I'll have to get back to you on that one. Then the subject of new years resolutions came up and he started saying something about making procrastination a new years resolution. Then he stated, "Savanna, I've got an idea. You should make procrastination one of your new year's resolutions. Then that way, you can procrastinate and then feel achievement from it!" "Well, what if I decide not to procrastinate and just get it done?" "Then you'll be productive! See? It's a win-win situation!" We both just laughed about it. I still am in fact. The idea is so chimerical (I learned that word yesterday in English :)) yet, it makes sense! Haha, it really truly does!
2.  Harry Potter  BOOKS!
This one isn't as much of a problem any more now that I FINISHED THE SERIES! (FINALLY!!!! heehee :)) I now feel as though I can truly claim myself as a true and devoted Harry Potter fan! It feels so great! Now I'm just getting off of the HP kick and starting new books and ranging to different genres for just a little bit. It's quite fantastic being a bookworm. Facebook and blogging (and quite frankly... homework) all seem to just bore me now. It's great having something else to fall back on when all my favorite pastimes tend to fail. It's a fantastic feeling knowing that I have finally achieved something that great (cause I'm really  slow at reading and never thought I could get through the books). But I did it and can now cross it off of my list. I think there will be a few changes made to my bucket list for this year... it needs to happen... cause honestly... I'm not so sure about them anymore. Not that I don't think I can succeed at those things anymore, but I just need to decide whether I'm ready to take on such large tasks and with my recent thoughts of doubt, I need to decide what exactly I WANT to do. Anyways, books. Books are good. They will never lead me wrong. (As long as I choose good ones that is...) And since I've recently bought so many new books... I need to get on that. I like movies too just as much as I love books. I've always loved movies. I'm always up for a good one.
3.  Movies
Movies are a great cure for my boredom. Especially if I haven't seen the movie before or even if I have seen it before like a bajillion times and think to myself, "and why do I watch this movie so much? oh yeah, that's right... it's funny/hilarious/heart-breaking/satisfying to my emotional girl needs." Then I think to myself "I need a life..." Well, movies and books have BECOME my life. I love them and the literature that they hold. I will not fail to mention that sometimes I turn them on late at night. It's impulsive (not planned) as to how late I stay up each night. I'm very impulsive and that's just how it works and probably how it will always work. Haha, that's just who I am. :)
Well, here are a few things that complete me and yet, they tear me down in a way that I never get any sleep at night. I know I'm awful... but again. That's me and sometimes I feel as though there's nothing I can do about it. But... I'm alright with that... :)

A Book Worth Reading

(sorry if this repeats itself... It was late when I wrote it)

Every day you should say to yourself, "This is going to be the best day of my life". Not only is it a goal that you should make, but a goal that you should try and make happen.

"People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be."

This quote is so true in so many ways. It's as if people don't realize that happiness is a choice, not a right. No one has the right to be happy and no one has the right to be sad, but you DO have the choice of your mood. Your feelings are a tad bit of a different story, but it's all on perspective. Let me tell you what I mean:

My large external goal of the entire year is to figure out how to make high school (as well as life in general) as great as it can possibly be and I've been searching for new ways every day and making new discoveries as to what works and what doesn't. For me. I can't tell you how to spend your time in high school or how to live your life, because that's all for you to figure out. Contrary to popular belief, you do know yourself better than anyone else and if you don't... Well, then, you've got a big, messy puzzle to put together. Until you know what you want, you're not going anywhere.

In fact, life is like a giant puzzle. Like... Huge, ginormous... Get the picture? Each and every little detail that makes up our lives is given to us as a tiny, small, minuscule piece that we have to find a place for. Also, the pieces aren't all given to us at once. They're given to us one or two (maybe even three) pieces at a time. If we just disregard it and let it be there, we're not going to be able to figure anything out. Everything will just get so overwhelming and you'll just wanna throw all the puzzle pieces on the ground and stomp on them. Then they're gross, smashed, ruined. Forever. There's no replacing them. They may still be usable, but they won't look as pretty... Don't get me wrong... No ones puzzle is perfect. Some might even jam pieces together that only seem like they fit, when in fact they really don't. But that's just how some people handle it. To each their own. We're always gonna have pieces that we accidentally (or maybe even on purpose) drop on the floor. We have to learn to pick them up and clean them off before sooner or later the baby crawls over and before you know if you're digging your finger down your throat to stop them from choking or the dog comes along and mistakes it for kibble.

In order for you to believe "Today is going to be the best day of my life", you have to believe it. No one else can have a good day for you. As Natasha Beddingfield would say: you are unwritten. No one can write your story but you. No one can build your puzzle. Be a book that someone would want to read and be a puzzle that people are fascinated by when they look at it.

I'm not saying you can't have any help; people are a huge and significant part of people's lives and they contribute pieces all the time. We could NEVER do it alone. All I'm saying is that, in the long run, you're only gonna have yourself and God to rely on (and your eternal companion if you're religious :) ).

Now if you're still lost as to what the heck I'm talking about, here's a little starter that works for everyone when used properly: be friends with everyone. Love everyone and everything around you. Reach out of your comfort zone and thank people for the simple things. Everyone appreciates a compliment. (If they don't they're just stupid to be perfectly honest...) "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change the way you feel about it." It's all about having a positive attitude. ALWAYS.

Here's a sneak peek of Carly's photoshoot! I'm still playing around with them, but here's a little taste :)
