Sometimes, on 11:11 I take a risk. I take a chance and make a dangerous wish for you. I wish for you to be happy. The risky part is that I’m simply wishing for  your happiness. It has nothing to do with me. I would prefer to be a factor in your happiness but if some day, down the road, for any reason at all I no longer have the privelege of making you happy, I still want you to be happy. 

I don’t want you to ever feel like a failure. I don’t want you to ever feel like you don’t belong. I hope you never know what it feels like to make a mistake that was too big to make. I never want you to feel unwanted. I never want you to feel like you don’t have anyone to turn to. I hope you never know true misery, pain or grief. I hope you never feel hollowed out. 

If I had the power to protect you from any of this, I would do it in a heartbeat. No price would be too high.

Oooh, there are a bunch of these: movies that I found surprisingly better after low expectations. I try not to go into movies with high expectations (of course I can’t always help that as I’m easily excitable when it comes to movies), so I’ve been both disappointed and extremely pleased. And also, to be honest, I’m very easily pleased by most movies, which means that I like a lot of movies that most people hate. (Example: I will watch the shit out of every Keanu Reeves, Dwayne Johnson, and Jackie Chan movie ever and love them wholeheartedly. No idea why.)

One movie that always comes to mind, as stupid as it sounds, is the remake of 21 Jump Street. I know, I know! How lame! But when I watched that movie with my parents, I was sure that it was going to suck and just tank. To my surprise, I found it to be absolutely hilarious and laughed my ass off at its absurdity. I think what sold it were Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, two actors I care very little for. (I think I’m the one straight female in the world that really just isn’t attracted Channing Tatum in any way.)

So when I watched the movie, I was kind of shocked at how well the two bounced off each other and how I feel like Channing Tatum took advantage of the fact that he’s clearly a sex symbol and made himself, well, not very attractive AT ALL and it was FUNNY. And how things have changed for high school. Jonah Hill’s character exclaims that he would’ve been popular had he just been in high school a few years later and the popular kids nowadays aren’t even cool. It was funny because it’s TRUE.

Man, I was really trying to think of a movie that would be, I don’t know, not so mainstream or whatever, but I’m blanking out. (I’ve seen a gajillion movies.) Instead I’m trying an essay on 21 Jump Street. Way to go, me, way to go.

OH ALSO. I didn’t think I’d like Legally Blonde, but omfg I can watch that movie once a week and still be madly in love with Reese Witherspoon. OKAY, I’ll watch any movie with her in it as well.

11.12.12:It's been a year!

So as of 11.12.12, Josh and I have officially been a couple for one whole year!

I feel like the cliche thing to say is “we’ve been through so much together” but we haven’t and It’s awesome.

We have had the most amazing, most incredible, most exhilarating 12 months of my life. We get along beautifully, we never fight, we barely even argue. We have the most loving and caring relationship I’ve ever had the joy of having or even being around. 

He is my best friend and we always have entirely too much fun together

He is my soulmate and I consider myself truly lucky to have found him. We take care of each other and we always put the other first.

I never in my life thought I would ever have something as pure and as simple and as honest as our relationship is. He completes me in the most cheesiest of ways. I mean it. I am completely unapologetic about how sentimental, cheesy and corny this post is. I love Josh more than anything. Of all the things I love, I love him the most.

I mean seriously, just look at this face


Our first date at Rocky Horror

Our 1 year anniversary of our first date at Rocky Horror!



Joshua, I love you very very very much and I’m super stoked for countless years to come. Thank so much for putting up with my weirdness. It’s the least you could for me putting up with yours



Koi No Yokan (Japanese): The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love

This is different than “love at first sight,” since it implies that you might have a sense of imminent love, somewhere down the road, without yet feeling it. The term captures the intimation of inevitable love in the future, rather than the instant attraction implied by love at first sight.


lol i hate these things but someone wanted it. I wanted to use people’s names and then link them but idk here are the urls.

joshuabrownvstheblog ( my fiance)















These are not in any order, just the order in which I tracked down their current urls. 

It is now 12:00, making the date 12/12/2011 and thus marks Josh and I’s first full month as an official couple!  Strangely enough, it feels like it’s been a lot more than that but in a really great way. He’s wonderful.

We are adorable. Also, he is always on my right haha
