Watch out! I mean…

28 Feb

I came across this mid-drink of orange juice and definitely started some dramatic choking. Just picture that!

Well. Why not.

26 Feb

Thundering dispirit,
Behind tender strings of perplexing affection.
Caught in the wires, falling into absolution
Abandonment, infectious hesitation.
Isolation, inescapable scandal.
In the complexity, note:
My skin is thin.
My hands are small.
My heart, my naivety, my beating chest of finer things –
Too great to miss.
Born raw, rubbed fresh, starved.
Dexterity is tumultuous.
Integrity of glory – defined, poised,
Defeat of an ancient grudge,
and the ultimatum of a costly following.
That is victory over the kindest foe.
Finding humility at the sake of personal gratification.
Self-effacing in the face of majesty.
And finally,
The personal rescue.
In a planet so caustic,
The people – so very strong.
The person – so very very alone.
A lifeboat from the time of Arthurian legend,
These lives never happened to me,
These dragons were never slain,
These stallions were never tamed.
And my heart of hearts,
my card of kings, dreams, and the sweetest swings –
never played.
I’m just a little girl today.
Your future, my future,
This concept of time and abbreviation –
Absolutely terrifying to my world wide eyes.
I place my investment in personal direction –
An inside bearing, a superior love,
Valor, pride, wealth in the intent?
Without a doubt.
New legends transcend time and relative history.
New legends set sail daily,
But reach the opposite shore once in a lifetime.
And in my heart of hearts,
my card of kings, dreams, and the sweetest deeds –
the harshest needs,
the tender things,
set apart from old age and infancy –
that card is ready to be set down on the table.
Face up,
taking the turn, one hand at a time.

And…the UC Daily Crime Log.

24 Feb

Dear BYU Police,

Not to downplay your contributions to keeping BYU safe, but in the event of a national showdown between university police departments and other collegiate coppers, I do believe the UC police would have the upper hand; they experience a plethora of dangerous situations, as evidenced by these handy charts.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Additionally, this was an attempt to provide some college life insight, but it doesn’t really work because I think we live at the two poles of the spectrum.

Annette basically lives in a utopia, complete with happy joggers and happy weather and happy police.
I’m envious. I live in the hood. I found a shiv once. It was made out of a sharpened plastic spoon.

These are reported crimes for the month of February, where an arrest didn’t occur:

BYU Police Beat

24 Feb

Feb 19–An officer witnessed a male suspect kick one of the light posts on campus, causing it to go out.  When the officer confronted the male, he aplogized.  The light came back on and the male’s frustration didn’t damage the post permanently. 

Feb 14–A concerned mother called because her 13 year old daughter was threatening her with a stick.  Officers responded and mediated the situation. 

Feb 19–A juvenille was seen wandering around Wymount.  He was later seen standing in a laundry basket.  When confronted, he said he was just getting some fresh air. 

Feb 16–A student was stopped for driving freeway speeds on Campus drive. 

Yeup. Here at BYU, we are bad to the bone.

I haven’t used the word “boss” as an adjective yet. It is a synonym for both “fly” and “awesome”.

23 Feb

This guy knows how to live with both intensity and tenacity! Reckless? A little, sure. I mean, at any moment, one of his tricks could go horribly wrong. He could wreck, fall down, crash into tree, sacrifice life and limb or just blow up. But he continues as if the risk isn’t even there. He performs with intention. He has confidence in what he’s doing; once he commits, there is no backing down. To do so would probably be more dangerous. My absolute favorite part is that he is doing what he loves without doubt or fear limiting his ambition. And the result is pretty darn impressive.

Ah…now I understand.

21 Feb

Twas my sister Heidi who brought this to my attention. 

It made me go “Dang…”

Holy hot man, Batman!

18 Feb

 

Sitting diagonally from me in the library right this moment is a man the perfect mixture of this guy: this guy: 

and this guy: 

Apollo--the God of all things an attractive male is.

 

Oh my gosh. He just looked at me. 

I will continue my homework now. Is it really only 2 o’ clock? Gah!

Nineteen years ago today…

16 Feb

This girl was born. 

 

 

Here she is...looking gorgeous as usual

 

Well. She is basically the most amazing girl you will ever meet in your life. And she is MY best friend!!! It is ok and perfectly normal to feel a little jealous of me. I am now going to make a list of things I love about her, as well as some things that just remind me of her. Buckle up. 

  1. I love how hard she works.  She has the most extensive extracurricular list of anyone in the world. She is always doing a gazillion sports, president of all the clubs ever invented, taking all the hardest classes, and still finds time to call me when I am feeling down. 
  2. Speaking of sports. She is best at them. Ever. Best runner, best swimmer, best soccer player, WAY best Rower, and best curler too (I know that if she ever tries it, she will be the best). 

The person who thought up this car must have been in love with Elisabeth. Because it is perfect.

She would make this car look sooooo good

 

 4. I love how colorful she is. Colorful room, colorful clothes, colorful personality

5. I love how she says “Yeah!” when she agrees with you. You just have to hear it. 

6. I love how she was there the first time we tried falafel

7. I love hate how  I can never catch up to her! She is always ahead of me as far as doing stuff for me. If that made any sense. 

8. I think of her everytime I see someone in converse. 

9. I love how she sits there and listens to my crazy theories. 

10. I love her giggle. 

11. I love the sadly few times we get together in a car with this song

12. Waking up and opening my phone, and seeing “One message from Elisabeast”. I hate how it was always sent at ridiculous hours of the morning. (She needs more sleep)

13. “You only live once!” 

14. I love how intellectual the girl is. She is so.freakin.smart. Like…don’t even try to outsmart her. 

15. I love a certain memory I have with her…and peanut butter…and our heads…the specifics will remain a mystery for all time. 

16. I think of Elisabeth whenever I don’t want to go running. And then I HAVE to go running. 

17. I love how she is famous.

18. I love how she has such incredible ambitions…and she always achieves them. Let’s just say…this girl is gonna be big one day. 

19. While it is kind of selfish I suppose, the thing I love about Elisabeth the most is when she is NOT 3000 miles away. 

This was a tricky picture to take.

 

After snow cones

Hello Ladies

15 Feb

I’m on a horse

14 Feb

Sometimes you have to stay in bed all day because you feel like your head is about to explode, you have marathon running nose, you can’t stop sneezing/coughing/hiccuping (I was confused too), you can’t think, your speech is slurred, you can’t really taste anything, and your body is M-A-D that you didn’t get 8 hours of sleep a night.  Also I can’t find my retainer ANYWHERE.  I just felt like I should add that to the list of today’s woes. 

It is ok. Sometimes it happens. 

Diagram of all the sinuses that are congested in my body...yep...all of them

I think this is what I looked like when my FHE brothers brought me a Valentines card
