12 of 12 – may ‘11!

On the 12th of each month, a bunch of bloggers take 12 pictures throughout the day.  Here are my pictures for May 12th, 2011!


9: 04 am – Athletic Center Nap Area.  Here I was trying to do readings, and there were HUNDREDS of high school kids roaming around and screaming in the nap area.  I have no idea why they were on campus, but they were highly distracting.


9:38 am – Nap area.  Finally I got sick of them and got up and weaved through about 300 more of them and grabbed a London Fog and a muffin.  And then, magically, they were gone!  [The field in the background is where my class played tag last week!]


2:36 pm – mall.  Lucas.  They honestly do NOT get cuter than my friend Kelly’s son.


4:02 pm – kitchen.  Life of a kinesiology student.  Gym clothes and textbooks about physical activity are seriously cluttering my kitchen.  It’s mandatory for me to wear gym clothes [including sweatpants] to school on gym prac days, so it ends up all over the place, as do old textbooks that are applicable to current papers.


4:05 pm – bathroom.  Exciting, eh?  So I figure that being a vegetarian who often forgets to eat until, you know, two PM and is semi-active, I should probably start taking vitamins again.  Centrum makes vitamins called Performance that have higher levels of B-vitamins, but at the pharmacy I looked at on Tuesday they were $26.  At Shoppers, they were $16.  I bought the store-brand and they were $10 for 5 more.  Yay vitamins?


4:11 pm – kitchen.  My hard drive works a ton better when I actually plug it into my computer.  Makes sense.


6:22 pm – kitchen.  Have seriously been listening to this song all day.


6:31 pm – bathroom.  I no lie am dumb enough that I went into the bathroom to use the mirror to take a picture of the shirt I was wearing, only to realize that, DUH, the words would be backwards.  Why I did not take this one in my room is a mystery.  Anyway, that is the shirt I am wearing today.


6:55 pm – costco.  WHY ARE THE COSTCO CARTS SO FREAKING TALL??  Also why does everybody pronounce it “cosco” instead of “cosTco”?  By the way, CosTco only seems to have workout pants in large and extra large.  Do they believe that small people like myself don’t have to work out?!


8:07 pm – marble slab.  Sam and I went for ice cream to the Marble Slab.  You know, to pay $8.25 for ice cream.  It was delicious, though—called Girl’s Best Friend or something, b-day cake ice cream, brownie bits and cookie dough with chocolate syrup blended in . . . and in a white-chocolate waffle-bowl.  I did indeed find happiness within the container.

NEED to work out tomorrow.

DSCF7827 8:55 pm – bedroom.  We then came back to my house and sat in my room for all of three songs with the hippie lights on.


9:35 pm – wal-mart.  Then we went to Wal-Mart on a mission.  Except it involved actually buying stuff and not shenanigans [whoa, that video was a year ago yesterday!].  PS. I hate wal-mart.

here i stand empty hands, wishing my wrists were bleeding to stop the pain from the beatings.  there You stood holding me, waiting for me to notice You . . . but who are You?  You are the Truth, outscreaming these lies.  You are the Truth, saving my life.

I wore this shirt intentionally today, I called it my Purposeful Shirt.  Tonight was the first time that telling my story was planned—intentional–that I could think about the telling beforehand.  I didn’t say all that I wanted to, but I think I said enough about all of the things that Jesus has done in my life.

Continue your story.

new clothes!

So I went shopping today.  That’s something I don’t usually do, and I don’t usually buy a ton of stuff.  Today I got two new hoodies, two new pairs of jeans, and got home to two TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS shirts in the mail.  Woohoo!

My friend Natasha has requested pictures, so I decided I’d share them here:

No pictures of jeans, because pictures of jeans are kind of boring.  Yellow and orange are fairly new colours to my collection [in hoodies anyways] and therefore I am excited.

Also excited about the girl in Bluenotes throwing seven pairs of jeans at me, only five of which I tried on.  Holy it was amazing.  I now own five pairs of good, wearable jeans now that are sans holes.  Because being down to three was, you know, terrible.  And I’m super picky when it comes to jeans and Bluenotes Girl helped me break out of that a bit, because these actually have a teeny bit of fading whatnot on them.

She still could not convince me to get the distressed/torn ones though.  She was trying and I was like “Uhhh nah, I can destroy my own jeans, thanks.”
