i recently made a decision.

to finally read this sucker.
it recently came to my attention
(or i've just noticed more prominently)
that i don't know what goes on in the Bible.
due to that i've been attending a new church more often as of late,
i've realized that i actually DO care to read this difficult, but important book.
difficult to read, but nevertheless, important.
it's not that i have absolutely no clue what the Bible contains.
i do.
but the only bits and pieces of this book that i have heard have been spoon-fed to me by my fellow sunday-school-goers or my churchy educators
(and i thank them for teaching me, and helping me understand the bits that i have heard)
but have i ever been able to really establish an opinion?
my own opinion about these stories.
i've recently learned about myself that it is a big deal for me to know and understand the basis of my faith.
regardless of whether i agree with every bit and piece of it or not.
i do not feel any different about my relationship with God.
if anything, i feel it growing stronger as i'm beginning to understand more and more about who He was and is.

so i've already begun,
and because i've never been much of a book-worm,
i'm still in Genesis.
i typically read two or three chapters every night,
and look forward to working through the whole thing.
difficult, but necessary.
what a read.

in other news,
i'm going on a ghost tour tomorrow :))
and i could possibly be the next Park City Ghost Tours tour guide.
so if you were to ask me,
i'd say that's pretty neat.

the best friend and me.

today is one of those lazy days.
but actually, this whole month has been a lazy day.
hi. it's only march fifth. let's not have a repeat of lazy february.

paul is home for spring break and is spending about 5 days with me up at the university.
today we went grocery shopping and rented the preeetty funny movie Due Date.
for some reason, i think funny movies are usually just better in the theater.
paul is afraid of downtown, so i don't know what our plan is for the evening yet.
but i ate a chicken pot pie, and puked it up.
so that was cool.

hey lazy day/lazy months.
let's get it together.
puking excluded.

Paulmz: let's stop being boring. i love you :)

I have been tagged.
Once again, by my blue-eyed fellow madgie, Courty.
Fifteen facts?
1. I have this weird obsession with collecting lotions and perfumes, regardless of whether some are the same scent or not. It doesn't matter how much is left of the said perfume/lotion, but I refuse to get rid of it until every last spritz or smear has caressed my skin with its scented blessing. In my dorm room, currently, I have 15 perfumes, and 10 different lotions. Yeah. Hi.
2. I'm secretly really embarrassed by my huge Swiss Army backpack that I carry around with me if I need to haul my computer somewhere. This backpack is actually bigger than me. The other day someone told me it looked like suitcase and laughed.
Not my proudest moment.
3. I am a personal hygiene psycho person. But ask me how concerned I am about cleaning my room.
Yeah. Not at all.
4. I actually think the - key is really funny, but only in certain situations. Along with Mexican-BBQ's and meeting up for coffee.
5. I love my Sony DSLR and wish it weren't so bulky so I could take it everywhere with me more often. However, with my suitcase of a backpack, that shouldn't be a problem..so what am I even saying?
6. I often paint my nails and peel it off the next day. One of my professors usually has a pile of polish flecks speckled around one of their desks, every day, at the end of a period. Which is actually another thing I collect. Nail polish. But after repainting and peeling every day, it is easy to run out of polish quite quickly. One might think a large collection of nail polish could be acquired.
This is actually true.
7. I totally heart Spanish. I would love to continue improving this second language, but I just can't seem to get around to doing so yet. I have a pocket English-Spanish dictionary I like to look up words in to try to improve my vocab. I super love it.
8. I have a tendency to stay up super, super late when I shouldn't. Get that from my parents. For example, I have a paaacked full day ahead tomorrow, and really should be sleeping. Yet, I am wide awake at 1:56 on a Thursday morning blogging.
Priorities? Let's not talk about that.
9. I am a God-fearing Christian. Sometimes, I find it difficult to bring up my faith in everyday situations, or even at all. However, like I said, I am God-fearing. And as it states in the Bible "..Whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 10:33) Which I do not desire at all to happen to me. So, in a nutshell, I am 100% Jesus loving.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
10. I love to put stale marshmallows in my ice cream/frozen yogurt. Today, I went to TCBY (The Country's Best Yogurt aka. frozen yogurt), and I took my own bag of stale marshmallows and didn't have to pay for the fancy fresh ones. So after I payed I pulled out my bag of stale ones, sprinkled some on my fro-yo, and just enjoyed the hell out of those stale marshmallows. Try it. Please. They have the most magnificent crunch I have ever experienced in my life. EVER.
11. I am terrified of having a huge baby belly. I would like to simply have the adorable baby bump that you see on the lucky little cute petite women. I came out 9 lbs 11 ounces and honestly, don't know if I can go through that.
12. My favorite show ever is Ghost Adventures. It is my dream to do a ghost hunt with them. Or do my own ghost hunt. I am convinced that if you are the type of person who taunts dark spirits just to get some good EVP's and static night vision footage, then you are most likely the most badass person to ever like..
live or something.
Just so badass.
13. My favorite movies are probably the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Also, I have always been in love with Frodo Baggins and Aragon. I used to wear the One Ring around my neck (when i wasn't concerned about a social life), and I always sob at the end of the Return of the King when Frodo leaves on the ship to Valinor. On the subject of movies, I can also quote the Phantom of the Opera the entire way through, songs and all.
I don't think I've ever actually admitted that.
14. I recently decided that think I want to be an high school English teacher. I'm a little terrifed.
15. I have a huge fear of going out to dinner with someone and having something in my teeth. Or even just having something in my teeth in general. I have gone to some extreme lengths to get the smallest things out of my teeth. Such as sticking sheets of receipt paper between my teeth to floss. I have good dental hygiene among other things, and my dentist told me he wished he could trade teeth with me.
I'm pretty proud of that.

Dedication: This one goes out to you Court. Just..well...because.
16. I am an objectumsexual.
If you don't know what that is then I am obviously not attracted to you.
That is all.
