Chrissy: I apologize

I apologize profusely
for this post.
I was out of sorts when I wrote it.
I had a fun time, really.
Sometimes I say things I don't mean because I want to make them more funny for some of my blog readers.
Obviously this one turned out more pessimistic than hoped for.
I should just shut my mouth sometimes.

Lesson learned:
do not write blot posts while extremely tired and irritated with homework and life.

Chrissy: Turtle.

Once, my family owned a turtle.
We cleverly named her turtle.
She liked to runaway a lot.
Obviously, it was a problem.
Unable to deal with her ridiculous mood swings
horribly hygiene habits
and constant ungratefulness
we sadly had to depart with our lovely turtle.

We gave her to a friend.
There she became know as: the Sherman Mobile.
We have every reason to believe she is very happy in her new home.
Once again, we have reason to rejoice for happy endings!

Chrissy: Notes for class.

This semester I am taking a Strengthening Marriage and Family class.
It. Is. Amazing.
Seriously my favorite class.
So, any of you who attend BYU or are planning to attend BYU I would highly recommend taking this class.
It's SFL 100 with Professor Hill.
We primarily focus on The Family: A Proclamation to the World, and the doctrines it teaches.
You don't have to be married or engaged to take it.
Heck! You don't even have to be in a serious relationship (*cough me cough*)!
The only reason I took it was to get more credit hours.
But I'm learning things that will definitely be applicable in the future.
It is a greaaaaaat class!
Ha ha today we discussed "breaking up" (among other things).
And I drew this little picture.
Girl: You're breaking up w/ me?
Boy: Sorry. You're head it just too big.
And that is an example of a horrible way to break up.

Chrissy: After the date...

After my date last night I was....
reaaaaaally tired.
The date was ok.
Nothing amazing, yet not horrible like others (bike rides, anyone? Country dancing?)
~Discussed Greek Mythology (having strange philosophies about life that go against your religion and trying to force them upon innocent people is NOT attractive).
~Ate food (he was a slow eater).
~Walked in the snow. I hate snow.
~Went to the Bean Life Science Museum. I made him sit down and talk while I drew a rhino. That was enjoyable.
~He told me the plot of Psycho after I asked him to.
~We went to the Creamery and had ice cream while playing Mancala.
and then we ended with a hug and thank you.
And I was really tired.
So I took this picture for you.
It's my "I'm so tired that if you tell me about another one of your philosophies I will drop kick you to Tanzania" face.

Chrissy: So here I am...

waiting for my date to start.
He's not late.
I'm just bored.
So yes, going out with a kid who knows me for my Bella impersonation I did at the ward ice cream social in September.
He's a little strange.
But I get a free dinner!
I'll tell let you know how it goes!

Chrissy: Out in the real world

Remember this post?
Well here are some pictures (that I stole off of facebook) of the shoes out in the real world.

I was pleased to find that the recipient liked them so much!

Chrissy: Gotta have...

Gotta have my cucumbers.
I love em, have to eat one each day.
And that's as healthy nutty as I get.
But I'm thinking over the summer, when I have
access to a bigger kitchen and all of the baking powder I want, I will teach myself a lot of new and healthy recipes.
p.s. Did you guys from Utah loooove today?! It was so lovely. At least here in the valley it was.

Chrissy: Ponder.

Stole this little thought provoker from Cheri's blog.

Can success be defined by one moment?

My thoughts:

I don't think success is defined by just one moment. I believe it is a lot of little moments no one else sees that lead up to and build that great moment. Like with art. One day I hope to be able to create something that is simply breathtaking. I obviously haven't gotten there yet. But every art class, every painting (failed or not), every little success will lead up to and prepare me for that moment.

Your thoughts?

Chrissy: Piano Man

There was a man who was singing and playing the piano in the room where my Art History class is held. Oh he was so so beautiful.
So I drew a picture of him.
He's a lot better looking in person.
The End.

Chrissy: Unreasonable Aggression

Walking across campus when everyone is getting out of classes
is ridiculous.
I can't wait for everyone to start skipping.
But what's worse is trying to get to your class on time
while walking behind a lovey dovey couple holding hands.
I mean, I already get unreasonably aggressive when I see PDA.
But on top of that they walk sooooo slow!
And I'm not a super fast walker myself (I have to jog to keep up with my roomies when they walk) but seriously people.
Speed it up!
You make me feel really really bitter when you kiss.
Just saying.

(we're actually trying to be monsters here, but I felt it was appropriately aggressive looking)

Chrissy: It's true.

Let the records show
that I am indeed an eavesdropper.
However, let the records also show that sitting across from a couple
who is have a little argument is by far the most interesting way to pass time between classes.

Her (imagine drop dead gorgeous, witchy type): It's not that I have anything against her.... (this is where I couldn't understand what they were saying).
Him (imagine the attractive, down to earth, mechanical engineer major type): I just think she needs some really good friends right now. She's going through a hard time.
Her: Like I said *getting all teary* it's nothing against her personally. I just feel like ....
Him: I'm not like that, Sabrina, you know that I'm a straight forward guy.
Her: ..... (imagine, I can't believe you'd choose her over me face).
Him: I'm sorry you feel that way, but there's nothing I can do.

Oh man.
It was beautiful.

Chrissy: Princess and baby boy da prince

I thought of this the day after I saw Princess and the Frog.
Don't worry about the title.
I just had an itch to name it something ridiculous.
So I did!
It happens sometimes when you're trying to finish up at painting at 2:30 AM.

Chrissy: If I hadn't had been so busy...

If I hadn't had been so busy untangling headphones
fake punching my little brothers
dodging arrows from Robin Hood

Answering questions from the Sphinx

Trying to tame a dragon

Finding Atlantis
Redesigning super heroes' costumes
Building homes for homeless leprechauns

advising Harry Potter

and making 5 step plans

I would've had more time to find Narnia.

Chrissy: Happy New Year!!!

Ah, 2010!
Not sure what to expect from this new year.
Hopefully it will be lovely!

A few resolutions I have:

1. Don't be afraid of the future.

2. Live in the present.

3. Be myself!
I love all of you!
Have a fantastic year!
