Blue Skies, Sunshine, and Butterflies

Some songs have a deeper meaning to some of us than others......

"Why'd I have to go and be a fool again?
Why'd I have to go and make a big thing out of nothing"
 ~Had It All by Katharine McPhee

Why do I do the things I do? Why am I so foolish? And sometimes I just get all worked up over nothing and it can destroy my relationships.  I guess I'm just really insecure about change.  I'm scared that if I let something change I might not like it's income and I'll regret it forever.
"He put it on me, I put it on,

Like there was nothing wrong.
It didn't fit,
It wasn't right.
Wasn't just the size.
They say you know,
When you know.

I don't know."

This refers to a date I had.  I felt like we were rushing into it.  The week before the date I had pondered and pondered over it (this is where the 'big thing out of nothing' comes from.) and when we got to the date I decided I try to give him a chance.  But afterwards, it felt like we didn't click.  I was all wrong for him. And anymore, I wonder if I hadn't pondered and analyzed it to death could we have worked out? "I don't know..." But this is how I felt:

"I didn't feel
The fairytale feeling, no.
Am I a stupid girl
For even dreaming that I could."

Snow white said when I was young,
"One day my prince will come."
So I wait for that date.

They say its hard to meet your match,
Find my better half.
So we make perfect shapes.

If stars don't align,
If it doesn't stop time,
If you cant see the sign,

Wait for it."
~Not Like The Movies by Katy Perry

So here I am waiting.  And it is hard to find your match.  Anymore, we pick suitors and we convert them into what we see are 'perfect shapes'.  But that can't work for me.  I have to have someone who is naturally my match. Someone that is themself, but just right for me.  I feel like this will be hard. So I guess have to wait.  Or should I wait?
"And I want a moment to be real.."

I don't want a temporary moment anymore. I'm tired of having to be happy one minute and to be miserable the next.  Why can't that wonderful moment last?  Why must sadness follow?

"And how can the world want me to change
They're the ones that stay the same
They don't know me.."

People tell me all the time to" fix this, stop doing that, you can't do that because this is how it's done..." and I'm getting tired of it.  You want to change then start with yourself.  I'm can't be everything you want me to be.  I'm trying to be a better person, but I'm not perfect!  You really don't know me so stop trying to act like you do.
"And you see the things they never see..."
"Now you know me and I'm not afraid
And I wanna tell you who I am"

This is to all my close friends really understand my views.  But there are things that you don't know about me.  And I want to tell you exactly what those things are, but you might think I'm weak and strange. I'm scared that if I tell you I might be to vurnerable.
"They can't tell me who to be
'Cause I'm not what they see

Yeah the world is still sleepin
While I keep on dreamin for me

And their words are just whispers and lies
That I'll never believe..."
~I'm Still Here John Rzeznik

I'm going to ignore those who tell me to be someone I'm not.  I may be weak, but not enough to be a stranger to myself and allow myself to become someone else.  I won't stand for it.  Maybe some people aren't at this realization, but I'm going to make my own way into this world.  I can only hope that I can fly away from here and find that perpetual moment that I've been reaching for.

Hi! My Name Is...

Miss. Klutz

Friday I accidentally burned myself.  With my curling iron.  On my knuckle.  Owwie.

Then I got *hold on* 6 bug bites.  2 on both arms, 3 on my foot (yeah, I know, weird.), 1 on my finger.  I'm so mosquito prone it's scary.  I can be outside at night for an hour and come back with 5 bites randomly on my body. It drives me crazy!

I trip randomly.  Anywhere.  Anytime. Like for instance I was walking up some stairs and I caught my foot on the last step.  I squealed as I started to fall but I saved myself by putting my foot out in front of me.  But then I was starting to fall over again because I had forgotten I had a heavy book bag on my back and so I stumbled and slammed myself into the wall.  Thank goodness no one saw me.  I think...

I have problems with words. I'm not articulate at all.  I can't tell you how many times I've said the wrong thing or called someone the wrong name or pronounced it weird.  I can't flirt well. It's like a bad scene in a movie.  It's just well, bad.
"Don't be afraid to take a big step. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. A person who follows in another's track leaves no footprints. Thus, the task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees." – Arthur Schopenhauer

Tips And Products For The Best Makeup Coverage

Hey you guys. So I figured that I'd post something productive since my last post was sort of a rant/poetic type of thing.  So this is another promised post of makeup.  I've had my fair share of foundation/concealer ordeals.  For a year I went with like 4 layers of concealer and foundation because I wasn't getting enough coverage like I should. And even then it would slide off by the 3rd hour or so.  Now that I'm a bit older, I've done more research and tried different techniques and have come to a sort of satisfaction.  So here I go, going to reveal some of my secrets at having perfect coverage that isn't heavy or extreme. (On, and I'm not paid to mention any of these products.)

Are you ready?

Cleansing: First is first.  Your face. Your natural face. Not the "made up" face.  You need to use the proper soap and such to have a nice canvas to have good makeup.  I use Clinique Acne Solutions.  (Which is good for oily skin) But a cheaper set would probably be ProActive. (Though if your 25 years or older I suggest something different; research shows that ProActive doesn't work as well for anyone older than 25.)  Anything with hydrogen peroxide and/or benzoyl peroxide that treats acne is good because it dries out the pimples. 

Primer and Concealer: I use to use Revlon clear primer, but I really don't need it anymore.  I now use Clinique acne solutions concealer.  And basically, if you hadn't gotten it from the name, it has medication in it so as it conceals it also treats. What you want its a good concealer, one that is covers well.  I sometimes find the stick ones better than the liquid if you're looking at drugstore type brands. I think they are thicker and cover a bit better, but you have to also be very careful because too much of it can make you look cakey and it can melt off quickly. 
Foundation: Again, I use Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Foundation.  It does the same thing the concealer does and it actually mattes my face which is awesome. If your have oily skin this stuff is gooooood.  I use 2 drops almost the size of a dime. It really doesn't take a lot to cover your face really.  So what you want to look for if you have oily skin is something without oil and possible can matte your face. If you have dry skin, just make sure that you have moisturizer on before putting on any make up.
Finishing Powder: I use Almay.  I don't want like my face to sparkle so I try to avoid stuff that makes has "shimmer".  Its called Truly Lasting Color Pressed Powder.  Its suppose to last 16 hours, which well, it doesn't go 16 hours without reapplying but it works for a long time. Maybe 5 hours or more? I also use Clear Complexion Pressed Powder which is a matting powder that suppose to clear and prevent blemishes.  I say it doesn't clear blemishes but doesn't cause any either.  It does an excellent job with matting.  I don't have to reapply for 4-5 hours on a hot day, on cool days not at all! So if you want to best of the best for the money, this is it.

I know that seems like a lot, but when you wear all that it doesn't feel heavy at all.  It stays all day and doesn't rub off (maybe a little, but not a lot). 

If you're wondering what other stuff I put on I usually wear blush, some eyeliner, and mascara.  That pretty much it.  I were eyeshadow on special occasions or out of boredom.

I hope that was helpful! If you have any questions send them on my formspring. (Widget to the left!)

*This post has content that has possibly offensive opinions to some readers. These are opinions not facts.*

"We will NEVER forget.."


Maybe our hearts stopped. Or maybe we didn't believe it at all until those fateful pictures and video feeds came rushing to our home televisions. 
One. Two. Two planes tore our Twins.  Those Twins carrying hundreds of people.  They fell, taking down their brothers and sisters as well.  Gone forever, staining the ground with their blood.
Three. Arlington, Virginia: the Pentagon.
Four. Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

No one survived from these 4 flights.

Flight 11, Flight 175, Flight 77-- We reach out for you.  God bless.
Flight 93-- We reach for you. Without that fight, who knows what could have happened.  You saved our beloved Capital and White House. God bless you all.
6000+ -- We pray for you.  We love you. We remember you. Don't give up.
2977 -- We will love you for all eternity.
200-- Each time you landed it was like another piercing
to the heart of the horror of this event caused.
411--Thank you for your quick response.  You died in honour, and no one should ever forget the bravery and hardship you went through.
19--We will forgive you. I only hope that God laid mercy on your souls.
What has become of our world? No longer are we focused on freedom, rights, and religion.  We are of money, politics, and media.  America, we need to get our morals and values straight.  Or would you rather fall to your own selfish and dumb mistakes because no one wants to look at themselves and ask, "Is what I'm doing right?"? Could we stop thinking about "what I want" and start thinking about "what's best for everyone besides myself"? Where's the integrity? Our pride? Really, what is there to be proud of? Our economy is collapsing, we have people losing their jobs (others who are keeping jobs they don't deserve), our politicians aren't making sense, we're making America less free, and we're starting to burn other people's bibles... The list can go on and on. Stop the madness. Let's start using our senses.


What those hijackers did was completely and utterly wrong.  And I'm in no way, taking their side or supporting what they did.  I don't agree with the methods some people use to make a statement.  I agree that terrorism is wrong.

Happy Birthday Mitchell Davis!

I heart your videos!

Hey everyone. Like my new background? Updating you on the heath journey.

I screwed up.  Well, on purpose.  I'd been doing okay all week.  Eatting salads and one cookie at lunch and walking around a lot.  However, today I ate pizza on purpose.  Why? Because I've been working hard all week and I needed a good reward gosh darnit! Tomorrow I'll be back.  It's okay to splurg every once in a while right?

But for reallies (for-real-ee-s) I'm on a serious health kick -- as Random Rawr puts it. Not like a diet, but you know I want a long live and a good body so why not start now? I'm still young! I feel like I can do this (and have some splurges along the way...)

I'm kinda into that song Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars.  It's such a cute song. ;)


This weekend I'll try to figure out this stubborn printer.  *sigh* Fun fun.

Thanks to all who have asked me questions on my My Spring.  Keep them a coming you guys!

This one is going to mostly consist of music videos more or less.  Some videos will be on the usual: comedy and such. So let's hop to it!

The Corpse Bride Theme Song--I'm kinda getting into classical music.  Even if this song is a bit morbid, I still like it.

Kings and Queens - 30 Seconds to Mars -- "Into the night...desperate and broken." I heart this song. I also heart that cool bike the rainbow mohawk guy is using. DUUUUDE!

Uprising - The Muse-- I can feel the Resistance crawling through my bones when I hear this song.

Mine (Cover) - Tyler Ward -- I really, really like this cover. If you'll notice, it's in guy version. I was even tempted to buy it over the original (It's on iTunes.)

Mine (Music Video) - Taylor Swift--I love this video!

Love The Way You Lie (Cover) - Tyler Ward -- This Megan girl reminds me of Vanessa Hudgens, but better. Am I right?

The Only Exception (Cover) - Tyler Ward (Ft. Megan Nicole) -- :)

On Set With You Belong With Me (Part 1 of 3) -- Its official: I'm in love with Lucas Till. DIBBS!

Dr. Multi Beard -- "

Throwboy -- "

I Love You -- This is to all of those I care for! That means YOU! (Did you catch It's A Wonderful Life quote?)

You have now been challenged! All who are reading this you've been Ally-Cat Tagged--it's a special kind of tag because it's named.  Anyways, do as the video says: send this to all of those you care about or if you blog, post it up on your blog and make a list of 7 love quotes like Mitchell Davis! (Well, he didn't do 7 quotes, but 7 is my lucky number and it is my challenge..) And to be fair I'll write some of my own:
  1. When I see you smile it makes me smile back because I love you even if that smile might be directed to someone else.
  2. I love you so much that I'd never walk into another Olive Garden ever again if you'd ask me to.
  3. I'd stick 1000 needles into myself if you asked me to because I love you that much. (I don't like needles.)
  4. I love you soo much that I'd risk my life to get you whatever you wanted, even if it was a little penny laying in the middle of the busy streets of NYC. I'd get it.
  5. I love you so much that I'd cross a snake pit if you were in trouble.  (I hate snakes btw.)
  6. I love you so much that I'd sit up with you all night and hold you if you cried.
  7. Look I love you soooooooo much that I'd walk on the hotest coals; swim the Pacific ocean nonstop; climb the highest mountains; crawl into the deepest crevasses of the earth to just give you a hug if that was all you needed.
Can you take on this challenge?


Forgot to mention this last post, I have some products to share that help keep your make up on all day! So be on the look out. Ally-Cat checkin' out...

The Hunger Games Book Review + Blog Updates

**Updates Below Review**
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
"Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place." ~Good Reads


Best book I've read yet. Hands down.  I think that it might have surpassed Twilight...maybe..I can't decide. Anyways! This book is awesome! Do I recommend this book? Hell yeah! Here's why:
Characters: Katniss is a freaking rock star. I love that girl! She's so spunky and smart! She's not slow and foolish like Clary from The Mortal Instruments Series.  She knows how to fight and uses her wits and talent to try to survive in the Games. The other characters are pretty sweet too. Suzanne did well with character development.
Setting: The Capital is fascinating.  The details were enough to get a picture of what the city looks like, but not too much that you don't have room for your own imagination. 
Creativity and Connection: Wonderful. Such a great change in reading.  I loved how the book kept you on your toes and how it wasn't that boring.  I thought when it got to the part where they're in the Games it'd get super boring, something like "And there I saw a tree and I hid behind it and I waited..."; Stuff like that where the book explains every detail and every single minute of the Games. Boy, would that be boring. But after seeing Katniss personality, I knew this would be an interesting read. Also connections, Suzanne did a good job in expressing the hate and helplessness of the people of Panem. I could feel that feeling of stress of being relayed on to take care of others day by day. I could also relate to Katniss's reluctance and feelings towards love. 

Fantastic book. I can see why so many people rave about it.  The only thing I didn't like was the ending.  I kind of felt like I got cut off, but I can understand she was setting it up for a sequel (Catching Fire - HEY don't read its info description unless you've already read THG.). If you're into action/adventure/romance/sci-fi books, this your book.

Also, book #3 Mockingjay is out in stores now!

Hey everyone, how was your week?

Mine went well.  Had a great time at Lauren's place.  Though, I was attacked with lotion and a sock ball--multiple socks stuffed in one other sock, hurts like heck. But I had fun. Thanks Lauren!

And look at what I found under her bed!

Isn't that freaking AMAZING?! So sweet. I'd totally buy these shoes.  On the other side (which I forgot to take a pic. of; sorry) is the spirit trees.

Lauren's site: LINK

I need to stop eatting bad stuff, like junk food and such.  It's so unhealthy, but I can't help it.  I love food.
I going to start to cut back right away. More exercise.  Yeah, that sounds good. Yay to good health!
So now I'm reading The Scarlet Letter.  I hate the intro.  Bleh.
Coming soon:
-Movies I Want To See List
-Boyfriend List
-Song Interpretations - You guys got any ideas?
I saw that "Mine" music video by TS. So cute. >.<
DVA: Here's the deal.  I need to figure out if I can scan things to my computer.  My printer is super complicated, so that may take awhile. BUT if I do figure it out, I'll make an account. Happy, Hannah? ;)
Hey, do you have a facebook?

I need a favor. Please? There is this guy named Paul who made a video about him and his fiancee and their trying to win a contest to get a wedding, but they need votes! Now your probably thinking "so what?", but here's the thing: they are huge volunteer helpers for people in Africa.  They talk about God and spend time with the kids, among other things. They are really super duper cool people. So if you want to help them out please vote for them on with your facebook account. Ge the word out! Please! This would mean a lot to me!
They help so many people, lets help them!
Here is the link: LINK

Thank you all! xD
