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. :)

Quote time!

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.
