i forgot half of these ABCs…

i was bored on my day off work(but totally enjoying it, because i never have time to be bored) and found this fun little challenge on a random blog. you put each letter of the alphabet into your browser bar and see what’s the first site to come up, then write one sentence explaining why you were there.
as you’ll soon see, i really don’t go many places on the internet regularly except for facebook, twitter, wordpress, netflix, youtube, amazon and pinterest, and i rarely clear my history. hence why random sites i visited one time, four months ago, are on here.

A-Amazon, because i shop there as often as rednecks shop at walmart.
B-Bible Gateway, because when i need to look up a random verse, i’m usually too lazy to either reach for my kindle and push a few buttons, or get off the couch and flip through my real Bible.
C-courses.ciu.edu, because i obviously haven’t cleared my history since i was in school.
D-derekandsarahgill.com, because they’re on my world race squad and write wonderful things.
E-ebay, because i bought my tent for half the price REI was selling it for.
F-facebook, because that’s the only way i have to be with my squadmates until i meet them in real life at training camp.
G-google, twenty times a day for forty different reasons.
H-humanmetrics.com, because that’s the only online myers-briggs test i could find for free.
I-IMDb, most recently because i wanted to know what else sam claflin had starred in, because i watched catching fire four times in three days and had to have more.
L-lindaswier.theworldrace.org(are you getting an idea of see what my life is about right now?)
M-my.mailbox.ciu.edu, because my school email still works and it’s the one everybody has, so i still use it.
N-netflix, because New Girl.
O-online.ciu.edu, because again, it’s been at least four months since i cleaned out my browser.
P-pinterest, because i’m addicted.
Q-quizlet.com, because i was cramming for my theology final.
R-REI.com, for world race gear.
S-steepandcheap.com, because they sell the gear i need for way cheaper than REI.
T-twitter, because it’s better than facebook.
U-urban dictionary, because when my mom asks what twerking is, or what “i know right” means, it’s easier to look it up than to try to explain in my own words.
V-victoryranchministries.com, because that’s where i got my service hours to graduate last minute.
W-wellsfargo.com, to pay my bills.
X-literally no results, because nothing starts with x.
Y-youtube, because i need cute animal videos at the end of the day.
Z-Zillow. i looked it up once because i didn’t know what it was.


five movies, five happy things, and five little big things.

writing is good for me. whenever i go a long time without doing it, i forget that. and whenever i try to start back after a long time, the only thing that comes out of me at first is endless lists. so, here are a few.

movies i can’t go more than thirty days without watching:
1. while you were sleeping
2. the silver linings playbook
3. the blind side
4. easy A
5. frozen(to be fair it’s only been two weeks since i first watched it. however, i’ve watched it eight times in those fourteen days, so i can tell it’s eventually going to belong on this list)
note that these aren’t necessarily my favorites; most of my favorites are too heavy to watch repeatedly. the common theme here is movies that make bad days good and good days better, the kind i feel like watching no matter how i feel that day. there are more on this list; these are just the first five that came to my mind, in no particular order.

things that have never failed and will never fail to make me happy:
1. pictures of cute animals(particularly elephants, monkeys, or husky or corgi puppies)
2. watching the princess bride
3. ice cream
4. krispy kreme donuts
5. moe’s
(i really just love food)

little things about me that are a big deal to know:
1. i can’t live without hugs. lots of people like hugs, but i NEED hugs. i can spend an entire day with people, but i’ll still be lonely if no one touches me the whole day.
2. i really couldn’t date a guy who hated baseball…one who just didn’t care about it is okay, but i wouldn’t be able to deal with someone who thinks something i love so much is stupid. for the same reason, someone who loves golf probably couldn’t stand to be with me either.
3. if you ever want me to stop talking, just put food in front of me.
4. you can never ever sneak up and hug me from behind. or touch me in any way when i can’t see you. the results aren’t funny(or if you do find them funny, we literally can’t be friends).
5. i’m the world’s best secret keeper.
