More Winter Goodness.

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful in your LIFE?!
I didn't think so.
I was even happier to find that they weren't making fun of it or anything. It's really just Christmas songs played Weezer style. I love it. I LOOVE it. :)
(also.. Am I the only one that finds a beautiful, intricate, expensive dress in a size 28 ironic?)
  • Figure life out.
  • Live that life
  • Love my family

December Fun

Wow. December already?
It's already time to go shopping for other people? I guess that's a good thing. I'm a big fan of holiday cheer. What bothers me is that it doesn't last all year...
I wanted to talk about a book series written by Scott Westerfeld. It's called the Uglies Series. I'm not going to talk about the story line, because I want everyone to read it. I just want to talk about how it makes me feel. It's my favorite series EVER. Trust me, that's saying a lot. I basically live at the library. I'm always looking for a good book to read. But this series makes me feel great about myself when I read it. It's the kind of feeling you get when you where a new perfume/ cologne, or when you wear a new dress, sweater, (nude) nylons or some sweet ballet flats. It's the feeling that makes you want to take pictures of yourself on your own camera with a sweet mini tripod so that everyone can see how great you look. It's the feeling that makes you wish you had some drawing paper and pencils or paint so that you could try to capture that feeling and have it forever. Anyway, i recommend that series. :)
You know what else I love? Music. Yeah, i know everyone else in the world does, too.. but that doesn't stop me from loving the feeling I get when I find a new artist or when Dan shows me a new band on his sweet new iPod (wishful thinking?).. Yeah. Music is a major part of my life. Not only cd's or mp3's.. but playing music on the piano is fun, too. I wouldn't mind having a few more piano books of my favorite artists.. like Mae, Regina Spektor, The Hush Sound, The Format.. etc.
I also like projects. I've been obsessed with photoshop lately, because it gives me something to do. I've been thinking about checking out some DIY books from the library for ideas on new projects i could do.
I like Winter. I don't like being cold, though, so I have to wear socks almost constantly, preferably some ankle socks or those socks that are the same on the toe and the heel.. those are cool. I do like the interesting designs on some socks, though. They're kind of fun to show off. The only problem with them is that you have to wear pants.
Skinny Jeans are weird and not flattering, especially the ones that look like blue butter you've spread thin over your legs. Gross. The ones that are just a little loose are cute, though.. as long as they don't hug your ankles to the point of cutting off your circulation. I still prefer comfortable skirts over pants, though.
Anyway, this has been a good rambling letter, don't you think? It's always a good feeling to get your thoughts out onto something you can see. Do you think that's why I've always kept a journal? Drawing is kind of the same thing, but not as convienient or straightforward as a journal.
Thanks for reading!

Celeste's Adventures. :D

Hello Everybody!!

I just have to say that I've had a wonderful week. :) There's no particular reason. I've just been very content with my position in life. Anyway....

Last Saturday Karen Millet and I had a little adventure. Working with prom dresses made me miss the chances i had to wear them, so we pulled out our old formals and wore them to Arby's and Albertson's.. mucho fun.

We were hoping to get some questions and funny reactions.. but we only had two questions. At Arby's one older man asked if it was prom or something and we just smiled at him and said no. He laughed and walked away. Then at Albertson's there were a couple people I knew from my ward and they asked why we were all dressed up. We looked at them all confused and said "what do you mean? we aren't dressed up.." and they laughed.. hesitantly.. and then kinda walked away. haha, it was great. I'm attaching pictures at the end of this.. I didn't really get any good ones, but hopefully you'll enjoy them anyway.

Other than that I've been working on my research paper for my English Class. It took me forever to decide on a topic. I ended up doing it on Emma Smith. So far I like it.. but I'm not sure how to finish it. I want to talk about her second marriage, but there's not a ton of info out there, because apparently she preferred keeping her life private, which I can understand. Anyway, it's been incredibly rewarding to do my paper on such a faithful woman.

Lately I've become obsessed with Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I bought the music yesterday and I keep watching parts of it. I just like the idea of focusing on the villian instead of the hero. It was on the air during the writers strike, and for no-writer's involved, I'd say they did an incredible job. Anyway, I recommend it. The URL is in my time-wasting sites section. :)

I need more books to read. Any suggestions?

I really need a new picture face.

Steve didn't get all dressed up. I guess it's not something guys get excited about..
Aw, Karen. So cute.

At least Steve ate with us..

Karen should go into modeling, don't you think? Especially with that coat.

And... apparently I eat kinda fast. mmmm.. Arby's.

So apparently.. granola bars are frozen foods these days.

I wanted this penguin. I'm so glad karen didn't encourage me to buy it.

Yeah.. I don't think Karen realized I was taking a picture.

Anyway, that was a fun night. Goals!

  • Do either something that scares me or something I've never done before every day.
  • Wear more clothes that I like.
  • Keep my room clean! (I actually haven't been doing too bad at this lately.. but i could still do much better. )
  • Serve others more.
  • Try not to get annoyed at little things. :)

Stuff You Can Read..

Hello friends! (hopefully you're all friends and not random creepers..)

Here's the deal. It's November.. and I've got to make another addition to my blog. The only problem is I don't have much to say, cause not a lot has changed since the last time I wrote.

I do have pictures I can put up.. but they aren't very exciting. Except a couple.. yeah. I'll go get my camera and load those babies on here.

Alright, so all of these are from earlier this evening.. First I went to Lundy's house because it's his birthday today.. which calls for the world-renowned Lundyburgers. I don't think I'm supposed to tell the world how to make them.. but I have pictures, so you can see for yourself.

Believe me.. I know. Don't ask me how it's possible to eat that.. cause I honestly don't know. I've never tried. This is Dan's. hehehe...

And here, Dan proves it's not only possible to shove it in your mouth... (and I'm too lazy to turn it the right way.. just tilt your head.)

But he can swallow it AND get it all over his face, too! How impressive!

(And I don't think he'll ever forgive me for putting that beautiful picture of him on my blog for all the world to see.. but I think it's worth it.)

After Lundy's I went to my ward's FHE.. where the surprised us with a service activity. It was actually kind of fun.. We had a list of things we were supposed to do for people.. and my group should have won but Chelsey's group cheated. (and I know I'm being a sore loser.. but if I feel like I deserve something, it's hard for me to let go. haha..)

After we returned from serving.. we had root beer floats, which were delicious.

Other than that, I swear nothing has happened in my life. Yesterday we went up to Morgan to visit our grandparents and aunts and uncles and all.. It was interesting. I think my family is starting to realize that I'm not mute and I tell jokes pretty well.. so they keep asking me to quote Comedians.. (Demetri Martin in particular. Careful what you watch of his.. he's a potty-mouth.) Anyway, I quoted for them for a while and then my grandpa took me to his computer to show me his funny videos.. haha. They were pretty good, I have to admit. I recommend this one :

Anyway, while he was showing me these videos, I heard some interesting noises coming from the room next to us.. and I found all of my cousins. I think the average age for my cousins on my mom's side is 3. Okay.. so maybe the maturity level is around there.. even if the actual age is a little higher. Anyway, they were playing a game that my friends call the "Animal Game" where you pick an animal and if someone calls your animal the person in the middle tries to hit you before you say another person's animal. It's really a fun game, so i thought I'd join them. I realized too late that my cousins are all sadistic and wanted to hit each other as hard as possible with the newspaper we were playing with. It was kind of ridiculous.. but funny to watch. My animal was porcupine.. which is a difficult word for Morgan folk.. so my animal didn't get called much and I enjoyed the entertainment. It made me realize how incredibly mature my siblings and I were compared to them. (At least from what I remember... hehehe... I'm sure others would beg to differ.)

Alright.. So i'm looking for a new job. Modest is cutting back hours.. and I want to work. Also, money in my savings account would be nice. Any ideas? I applied at a pre-school photography place.. but I don't think I'll get that job. She wanted a lot of experience and I'm only just out of high school.. yeah. Anyway. That's kind of what I'm looking for. Something I enjoy but won't be extremely easy (and thus, boring). Something I can learn from.. etc. Yeah. I just want a new job.

Also.. I'm starting to realize how boring life is at the moment. I mean, it's not like I don't do anything, cause I do. I have a church calling, I play frisbee, I hang out with friends. Life is just predictable, routine, and boring. I'm getting the urge to go backpacking across Europe or something. I just want to do something crazy and for myself. This sounds stupid, but I want to do something that people don't think is smart. Backpacking, for example. Everyone kind of thinks that people that don't save their money or do things without planning are flakey and dumb or whatever, but I think sponteousness is cool. The ability to do something for fun or just pure enjoyment is what everyone aims for in life, isn't it? So.. i think it would be exciting and rewarding. But I'll probably never do it.

I need ideas for my research paper. I want to do something dorky like ninjas, pirates (thanks anna), nasal spray, etc.. Something I can laugh at and enjoy learning about at the same time. Any ideas?


  • I'm going to try harder to enjoy the situations I'm in
  • I'm going to try to meet new people by intoducing myself.. which is really hard for me.
  • I'm going to make some cool dinners for the fam.
  • I'm going to decide what I want to do for the next several months.. school, work, etc..
  • I'm going to be more patient with family.

Look how good I'm doing!! Two posts within a week of each other! ( I think.. maybe not. ) I have some fantastic news! I don't have to bum rides off my parents anymore! I got a car!!!!!!

Yeah... I got a car. It's a Honda Prelude (obviously). 1991. 185,000 miles. Yess...
My dad says it's only a couple years away from being a classic. I say it already is.
My favorite feature: the sunroof.
I've always wanted a convertible.. but i guess this is good enough for now.

Look, Chris! The hubcaps are in perect condition!
and the antennae goes down!!


Check out my awesome sound system! Obviously, this car is per-fect for me.

Driving... my mom likes to stick her fingers in front of the lens. :)

Ahh... in all it's glory.
and now for the moment you've all been waiting for.
the prelude's name is....

Random Goodness

Alright.. I'm just not too good at keeping up on this little website. I think this one needs some serious pictures.. or people will stop reading! Oh no!! Alright, so let's see what I can pull together.

Remember that date I took Taylor on and Maddi took Steve? If not.. scroll down and read all about it. Well, here are the results...

Maddi's a superb person.. but i can't say the same about her driving. Something about the way she never watches the road is a little terrifying. (just kidding madda-rad!)

I think Taylor was getting a little hungry.

Alright, so resorting to cannibalism might mean that he's more than a little hungry.

Of course, Steve is just happy to be there. Or surprised... i'm not sure which one he was going for.

and there's my excited face. sideways.

I would have taken pictures during the actual battle.. but then i wouldn't have been able to participate! This is the aftermath. I'm pretty sure i got it the worst.

and steve's only a little creepy.

yep. that's my date. he was really happy about the paint on his face. He practically begged me to wipe some more on there!

the madness. She got it pretty bad, too.

and the stevie-b. and maddi. she's just got to steal the spotlight. oh, and a little slice of taylor, too!
yeah... so that was a fun night. I was going to put up the other pictures of the night Eric and I carved pumpkins.. but those are all on Facebook, so you can probably check them out there. Let's see...
I'm not sure what else to talk about! I could always go on a rant about why people bother me.. but I don't want to make myself mad right before I go to bed. That would make for unpleasant dreams.
Oh yeah! I had an awesome flying dream last night. I have them frequently, but this one was better than most. I flew to this crazy place.. I think it was probably the same country as Neverland (unless Neverland IS a country... anyone know?). Anyway.. it was like a mix between Peter Pan and Lord of the Rings. and now for a little math lesson...
I think that's self-explanatory. For those of you who don't know.. I think Peter Pan is the most attractive cartoon character EVER! The one and only reason for that opinion is.. he can fly. I mean, there are other cartoon characters that can fly.. but who fantasizes about flying off into the sunset with Dumbo? Not me. Also, I think his red hair is kind of cool. Plus, he has an awesome life. And he fights pirates.
Anyway.. I wanted to talk a little about dreams, and I'm hoping I get feedback on this. Can anyone else control their dreams? I can, and I love it. That's why I have flying dreams all the time, cause while I'm dreaming I think "I want to fly in this dream" so i start running fast, throw my arms out, and I'm in the air. I'm a little worried that someday I won't be sleeping and I'll try running straight off a cliff or something.. and fall to my death. That would be horrific. Also, my dad says he dreams in black and white. Is that true for anyone else?
Oh, and I think sleepwalking/talking is the CREEPIEST thing ever. Christine will hate me for saying this, but she mumbles a little in her sleep. That's not what freaks me out. I seriously cringe when people speak in complete sentences in their sleep. And I'm pretty sure if I ever saw someone sleepwalking I would scream my head off and run... or pee my pants.
The strange thing is snoring doesn't really bother me. As long as it's not the kind of snoring that sounds like a jackhammer inside my skull, I can fall asleep to it easily. In fact, I find it soothing. haha, does that make me weird?
Alright, so this has been a rambling-type blog. I think that's how the rest of these are going to turn out, cause I'm a big, big fan of ramblers. Unless they talk about stuff I really could care less about.. (i.e. sports.. other people.. etc.) Yep, yep. GOALS!!
  • I will.. be a better friend.
  • I'm going to learn more about being an Entreprenuer. It sounds like my kind of thing.
  • I will work harder to keep my room clean! (I think that's been a goal on every single post.. but I'm really going to do it this time!)
  • I'm going to.. work on my photography and photo editing.

woohoo! It looks like I've got a bright future ahead of me. :) I'm excited to meet my future self.

After the Dark Ages..

Alright, so it's been a while since I've made any additions to this loverly page. I should probably change things up, too, but for today we'll just talk about what I've been up to.

I started college about a month ago, but I'm pretty sure SLCC can't be considered diving into the college experience. It seems just like high school except there are 40 year old men that like to brag to me about how drunk they were when they did their homework. (Okay, there's only one of those.. and let me tell you, he's a creeper.) I also started a new job! I'm working at Modest By Design. I thought I'd be loving this job, that it was right up my alley. Unfortunately, I don't like having to learn everything about it, and dealing with ornery mothers or brides is not the most pleasant thing ever. However, I do see myself enjoying it once I get all the procedures and everything down, and once i start to memorize the merch.

Time for a new paragraph! Maddi and I have gone on a couple dates, and I have pictures I was going to put up, but Maddi has my camera, so I'll post those later. On one date, I took Taylor Cox and she took Steve Barton. We went to Noodles and Co. and then we took them to my dad's practice green at the golf course and we attacked each other with paint. We looked so awesome after that that we took many pictures of ourselves and then went to Smith's to watch the reaction people gave us. Generally, it was that of admiration, which was kind of a bummer, to be honest. On another date, Maddi took a boy she knows.. I believe he's in her ward or something. He brought a friend to be my date, and his name was Clint. (Maddi's date was named Ben) We went to Albertson's and bought stuff for dinner, which was homemade mini pizza's. Then we went back to Madder's house and made them and played many games! We played.. Chinese Checkers, Badminton, Rock Band, and Boxers or Briefs. Then we pulled out Maddi's lappy and showed each other hilarious videos. (Mainly Barats and Bereta, but others, too.) They were cool guys, really easy going and funny. Also, though you could tell they didn't want to do some things they did them anyway, and we had a lot of fun. :)

Other than that, not much has been going on. I got my wisdom teeth out a couple weeks ago, and I was puffy and bruised for about a week. I got my new laptop yesterday, and as many of you know, it resulted in the loss of ALL my music, but fortunately my friend Dan gave me a lot of what i had, and more. So I'm happy! It was kind of like Spring Cleaning, where you pull everything out of your dresser (or iPod in this case) and decide what you still wear (or listen to). Also, I joined the University 30th ward.. which is much different than a family ward, so it's also taking some adjusting. I do like it, though. People are hilarious, and i love to make fun of the awkward ones, which probably isn't the best thing a person could do, but at least i get a good laugh out of it. :)

-Clean my room.
-Decide to be happy every day!
-Do my hair crazy a few times.
-Buy some new clothes.
-Eat healthier!

Sorry it's been a while! I'll try to be better at that.

Jun 5, 2008


Okay! It's time for this month's addition to my lovely life. It's June! Hooray! Mostly Spring, but everyone calls it a summer month anyway!

I graduated. :) It's over! I still haven't comprehended it.. and i don't think i will until i actually start going to college classes.. which will be in the fall, at SLCC. I don't know what I'm going to study, so I'm going to get my generals done. I've thought about elementary education and art.. and music.

So last Saturday I left for powell for my sr. trip, with a bunch of my friends. That first day there were only ten kids there, which was about a third of all the kids. (I guess 'kids' isn't the best word, but i can't think of another word for what we are.. hehe) We got there around 8 or 9 and we checked out the houseboat.

the houseboat. You might think it's weird that I'm putting this into a new paragraph, but you'll understand once you read it. This houseboat was unlike any other i'd ever seen, and i've seen some pretty incredible houseboats. The owners name was Jeremy Johnson, i believe. He's the cousin of Nate and Adam Ruben.. if you know them. This guy is one of the most interesting guys i've ever met. He's 32 years old and he's a multi-millionaire. This houseboat was HUGE. It was basically a hotel-boat. There were 5 bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms, and one more bathroom besides that. There were 4 levels, including the basement. The basement had a GARAGE. The garage could hold two of those jet boat things.. which we also were able to use. The main level seated 27 people comfortably. There was this giant TV that connected to his iTunes... which was basically the entire iTunes store, movies and music. The second level had a nice sitting area and there was an area where a kitchen was being built.. but wasn't built yet. We kept most of our bags on that level.. and they weren't in the way. haha. The last level was basically for laying out. there were quite a few lounge chairs.. and that's pretty much it. However, he wants to build a helicopter pad.. but he has to reinforce the houseboat so it doesn't crumble when he lands. Which leads me to my next story....

The helicopter. I WENT ON A HELICOPTER RIDE!! IN LAKE POWELL!! Trust me, if you ever have the opportunity to do that, DO NOT pass it up, because it was the most incredible thing i've ever seen or done. We flew over rainbow bridge and landed at hole in the rock.. hiked for a little while, and then flew back to the airport. All the time we listened to 80's music, and it kicked face. I loved it.. and i want my own helicopter some day.. haha.

The rest of the trip was about as normal as it can get when you're staying on a 5 million dollar houseboat. I skiied 3 times, but only the first two were decent. I wakeboarded.. which i'd never done before so i was pretty proud of myself. We tubed, swam, played card games, watched a few movies, and ate. of course. :) Yesterday, as we were headed home, there was a lot of wind, and unfortunately we left before another group, and apparently we made it out in the nick of time, because a rope on the houseboat snapped and the houseboat ended up beached. I'm not sure what will happen to the houseboat, so i'll keep ya posted. The other group had decided to stay another night, so hopefully right about now they're packing up and getting out of there. Another group of people invited them onto their houseboat for the night.

I apologize for not having any pictures of my trip, but I didn't take my camera. I figured anything i wanted pictures of other people would take, which they did. I will have those pictures later, and maybe I'll put a few up.

Oh, one other thing people might find interesting.. David Archuleta came and vacationed with us! Even though it was a sr. trip and he's a junior.. we figured he wouldn't get to go on a sr trip and most of his friends are sr's anyway. He stayed on the houseboat the whole time and never once got in the water. :) What a cool kid. Anyway, here goes my list for this month:

  • I want to keep my room clean!
  • I want to make.. money. haha, for college.
  • I want to work harder on a life plan.. i.e. college, career, mission.. that kind of stuff
  • I want to get better at guitar and piano.

Well, short list this month.. but that's all i've got. Thanks for reading!

Okay, so my siblings found this song.. i believe it was chelsey.. and i always loved the message. I encourage you not only to read it and enjoy it, but imagine yourself doing every single thing it says to. Then go out and do it! :)

Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen)
Mary SchmichChicago Tribune

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '97... wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be IT.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience.
I will dispense this advice now.
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.
You are NOT as fat as you imagine.
Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.
Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.
Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.
Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's. Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.
Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings; they are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.
Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.
Respect your elders.
Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.
Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
But trust me on the sunscreen.

The beginning of the BLOG

Well, I'm finally doing it. I'm starting a blog. I can't believe I'm doing this. It's just another waste of time. Maybe in like, 5 years it will come in handy, when my siblings all live in different states, but right now we all live under the same roof, so i feel slightly ridiculous.

So I graduate this month. Wait, I want to type that again. I GRADUATE THIS MONTH! Yes! High School is almost done with me! That's really exciting news. I'm so ready to meet new people and have new experiences. Hooray!

Christine is engaged. She is almost done planning her wedding, and it's two and a half months away. Can you believe it? She's crazy cool. I'm pretty sure I'll plan my wedding the week before it happens. Heck, I'll probably meet my husband the week before I get married! (Joking...)

I think, at the end of all my blogs, i want to do something interesting. (okay, so really i hope my whole blog is interesting..) I think i'll do a wish list of sorts.. like, a "things i wish would happen this month" or "things i'm going to try to do this month" That sounds like a good plan, right?
here it goes!
  1. I want to graduate. :)
  2. I want people to realize that I like them to be honest, whether they think i'll like what they say or not.
  3. I want to find a sanctuary. (no offense Chris, but sharing a room with you is the most difficult when i'm having a bad day)
  4. I want to eat better. That's a big one, trust me.
  5. I want to exercise on a regular basis.
  6. I want to feel like people love to have me around.
  7. I want to start to learn Rhapsody in Blue on the piano

I'd say that's a pretty good list for a month.. so.. now i'll leave with a quote. Considering my biggest news...

"You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act. "
Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000
