Batman and Beauty

So I don't want to go into a full on critique of the newest Batman film, but I will say that I enjoyed it. I was a little bummed that they didn't play the Batman Theme Song, and I didn't like Rachel, but I really thought Heath Ledger did an outstanding job as the joker. It takes talent to turn something evil into something likable. Johnny Depp is the only other person I can think of that really captured the same type of thing. They're not the good guys, but you still like them anyway...
I also enjoyed how the midnight viewing I went to at Mill Creek was not only a block party, but it was like a town party!! There were about 40 people there that I either knew or recognized from my stake, and then at least 40 others from school that of course I enjoyed talking to. Most people were tired during the movie, but I was still buzzing because of all the social action I got to have!! Oh, I love seeing friends.

On a different note...
this is a different and more uplifting movie.

Please watch it.

Space case?

I always knew I was forgetful. I mean, there have been many times when I forget what I was about to say, or forgotten to do something trivial. Heck, there's even been a time when I believed I turned in a HUGE essay and I never did. That was strange.

BUT I NEVER KNEW that I could completely confuse dates. Today I went to the ear doctor for a post-post-op. appointment. The appointment was set for 11:20, so we showed up at the office at about 11:21. I decided to let my mom check in, I was going to read a magazine about endangered species...
and then I heard the receptionist say, "Her appointment is not until next week..."

Um, okay.

My mom and the receptionist spoke some more, and I paid some attention. I made a comment about ear drops and the pharmacy, and then my mom and I saw fit to leave.

The receptionist was about to shut her window, and then decided to make one more comment: "...and the appointment on the 21st is at 11:10."

I was not only a week early, but I was also ten minutes late.

"No News is Good News": The Big Lie?

It is, at least pertaining to my life events.

I've been living in ignorance, and let me tell you, the saying "Ignorance is Bliss" also does not apply to this situation!

The bliss is here now that I have full and complete knowledge.


Okay, I'll tell you:). TODAY I RECEIVED $2,500 IN SCHOLARSHIPS! I wasn't completely ignorant... I knew I was receiving them, but I did not know of the amount! I knew I was receiving $250 of that total. Only 10%!!!! Is it not an amazingly grand thing that I was mistaken?

I agree.

Oh, more good news. I received my AP Test Results today, and I got a 4 (out of 5) on my Spanish AP Test!

I am resisting the urge to call my Spanish Teacher and gloat; she once told me, "What makes you think you'll even pass?" I think the biggest reason I'm resisting the urge to call her may just be that I do not have her phone number, but that's insignificant.

Mis oidos (con un accento sobre la i)

My ears need to work much more effectively. The strain of trying to listen is starting to disappoint me.

I became a tad bit sad last night, thinking about my life and how it was and how it is now and how it will be... and just missing so many friends. It was hard. It was a     l o n g     night.

I saw this comic, and fell in love! (That's not "punny", I know, but there was no pun intended, just for the record)

moving on...

So it's taken me MONTHS to start this blog, for one main reason...
I had no clue what to call it! Isn't that horrible? I guess I'm just really bad at decision-making...
Anyway, like the name, mom? :)

This is to update all of you, over there, about me, here! I hope you enjoy my life... I've seemed to for the most part, and because of that I will most definitely be posting little interesting parts of mi vida loca on here.

Much love!

oh, and here's a pic of my beloved family.... it doesn't look like me at all. it's actually a horrible pic of me. so avoid that part of it!
