Memorial Day!

My family has never made a big deal out of Memorial Day. Once in a while we'll have a family bbq or go to the cemetary up in Morgan to visit my Aunt Colleen and Uncle Reed.
Today will be no different. I expect nothing spectacular from today.
Despite that, I love hanging out with my family. We have some hilarious times, some goofy times, and some spiritually awesome times.

Yep. We're awesome.
Love you Mom, Dad, Chel, Eric, Paul, and Chrissie!

Learning Style

(Above is the main reason this post came to be. I'm tired, so I may post something really idiotic. Forgive me.)

I'm fairly certain this is me.. depsite the small percentage of people that actually learn that way. There are a few things that aren't true.
For example:
 I don't get antsy and have to move a lot, but I fidget if I'm in the same position for too long.
I'm not extremely comfortable touching others. I guess I just feel like the more reserved I am, the more my physical gestures will mean when I make them.
 I'm not extremely talented sports-wise.. but I'm not awful at them either. If I made more of an effort to be good at them, I'm sure I could.
 I'm not hyperactive. At all.

Other than that, it's spot on.
I doodle in church cause for some reason, it helps me concentrate. I'm sure it doesn't help others very much so I try to refrain.
 I LOVE to read fiction books in which the author tries to teach you something through the story line. I DEFINITELY learn a lot through my emotions.
The ONLY way I've found I can excel at things I want to is by imitating the work of the people I admire. I don't mean copying them exactly, but I have to have some idea of where to begin before I can change the things I dislike (which I usually change because I've seen someone else do it a different way). This is why I'm convinced I would be a poor writer, because everything I'm ever "inspired" to write is because of something I've read. Same thing for songwriting.
Anyway. It's kind of fun to understand yourself better.. soo.. how do you learn best?
By the way.. thanks Jill for making me think about it. You're awesome. :D

p.s. I'm not sure if this is going to be a long-term phase or just something I'm feeling tonight.. but I'm really annoyed by personalities right now. I'm not sure how to explain it.. but I guess I feel like personality shouldn't be an excuse for someone's behavior. At the same time, I know it's a little contradictory to say that because obviously a person will always be themself.. so I guess I'm frustrated by myself, too. I guess the best word for my mood right now is discontent (definitions 2 and 3).

Prep Time.

So my dear friend Kylee just did a post about things she wanted to do this summer.
It got me thinking about my Bucket List and the things I've done on it. You'll be happy to know I've accomplished 17/100 things in two years. Oooh. That doesn't look as impressive as I thought it would. Anyway, I decided there are a few I'm going to get done this summer (and maybe fall). Hopefully I'll do more than just these, but we'll see. They are:

9- Hike Mt. Olympus
15- Write a (freaking awesome) song
58- Pretend to be a bum
60- Work in a Haunted House
79- Pretend to be a movie star in public
92- Learn Clair de Lune

If you're interested in joining me on any of those, let me know. :)

Here's a picture to brighten your day.

If you think the guy in the video of the week has ANY good ideas, you're a creeper.
You should just go turn yourself in to the police.

Ideas he gave:
Tell girls you want to eat their eyeballs.
Act like a child
Pretend you're divorcing a girl you just met.

Either he's joking or he belongs in a mental institution.

Just throwing that out there.
