A photograph of the Town I live in

Both of these photos came up when I searched my town on Google Images. I loved them. (:
That's my town! I'm sure it's not the best in the world, but it's mine. I know where everything is, most of my friends are close, I know all the tricks and treats. (:
That's all!!

A photo and description of what's in my makeup bag

My makeup bag! So.. You can't see everything. But there's mascara, and a cool double ended makeup thingy that I don't use often(it's the black and white tube with the silver middle), a couple brushes, 3 eyeliners, a pencil sharpener, blush, eyeshadow, and these cool face wipes that soak up oil. They're super nifty. (: And that's about it! I absolutely love it. (:

A photo of the Item I last Purchased

I went to Starbucks for breakfast this morning. (: It was extremely delicious!! Just saying.
And that's my last purchase!

A Recipe..

Olive Garden Italian Cream Soda
4oz Orange Syrup (Or any flavor you'd prefer.)
4oz half and half
10oz Club Soda

This is a bittersweet recipe for me.. Because I accidentally stopped drinking soda. It makes me sick. So.. It's really delicious, but I can't have it. Maybe you can enjoy it!!

A photo of an animal I'd love to keep as a pet. AND A song to match my mood, and why.

Okay, I was a slacker yesterday. And I'm sorry. Can you ever forgive me? To make up for it, I'm doing todays and yesterdays in one post. (:
So first, the animal.. Seriously, I do NOT want any pets! I have a cat, and as some of you know, I think that was a mistake. I am a college student, with friends, a boyfriend, a job, a life. I just don't have time for an animal. So that one was pretty easy. (:
A song to match my mood... (*:
Smile- Uncle Kracker
That song is pretty much always stuck in my head lately. (: Also..
The Way I Am- Ingrid Michaelson
That one gets stuck pretty quick, too. (: I love this music! Happy, smushy, lovey-dovey music. Thanks to Batman. (;
I guess that's all for today. Love you all, and I hope you enjoy!

A photo of myself two years ago..

Okay, so it's over 2 years ago. But it's the best I could do. (:

Sadie Hawkins. I'm on the left, with my butt hanging out. Haha c'est la vie!
It was fun. And forever ago. And that was my life. (:

My Favorite Photo of My Best Friend

So... I couldn't pick just one. Lucky me, she loves me, and won't hate me for putting up three. (:

So.. The top one is just Lisette, the second is her and me, and the third is her and tL. (: tL is her sister. Lisette is the bestest friend in the whole wide world. She's pretty much my sister- and I love her to bits! I usually do all my fun stuff with her- like the mall. (: She's also in most of my classes right now, and I think we have a lot of fun together. :D That's my Lisette!

A photo of myself and a description of how my day was!

Okay, so this photo isn't from today. But it's fairly recent, and I love it!
My day today was fantastic. I woke up early(ish) and got ready. I went to Starbucks with Lisette, and we met Reagan there. Then we all went to the mall. Pretty great stuff. (:
Lisette is hanging out here now, and we're going dancing tonight! Isn't that exciting?!
I know this post wasn't very long, but there's not a lot more to add. I'm pretty happy though. (:
Peace and love!!

Challenge: The word for 2011! And day 1..

I was reading this blog, and I decided on the spur of the moment what my word of the year is: Challenge. Here's something about me you probably didn't know: I'm a wuss. Okay, you probably knew that, but still. It's true. I hate doing anything I don't normally do. And it's not because I'm afraid to fail- though I am. It's because I'm terrified to succeed. The closest I've come to explaining this fear is this..
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles", Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])
I love that quote.. Mostly because it hits so close to home. I really am afraid to be great. So! The word of the year is challenge. I want to challenge myself, to be more than I am, to be great. It will be hard, and scary, and frustrating. But by God, I'm going to do it!
With that out of the way, I think I'm going to start this list today. Just to get me posting more. :D
So today.. 15 facts about me!!
1. I am a writer.
2. I love to dance.
3. I LOVE action movies- i.e. Expendables, or Red!
4. I have an urgent need for coffee and/or frozen yogurt on a regular basis.
5. Cartoons are my guilty pleasure.
6. I love to color and blow bubbles- especially with my best friend.
7. I think the easiest way on Earth to smile is to watch a little kid.
8. I am a straight ally.
9. I love God with all my heart and soul, but I am not religious in any way.
10. I really like the color black, but I don't consider myself "goth" or "emo" or anything like that. It's just a cool color- especially with red.
11. In 2008, I lost my closest and best friend to suicide.
12. I am happy.
13. I love to read.. Duh!
14. I make a mean batch of banana bread.
15. I have an insane love of life, and I try to attack each day with passion and excitement- "try" being the operative word.. (;
So those are my 15 facts! I think they're pretty good.. Stay tuned, folks, I'm sure there's more to come!

New Resolution.. I guess?

Okay! Time for a quick post. I stole the below list from my darling friends blog. You're supposed to pick one to do each day- all in a row! I'm not sure when I'll start, but I wanted to pop the list up, anyway. I think it's a great idea, and a wonderful way to keep track of myself. (:
I would also like to inform you all.. Batman took a pencil, walked up to my resolutions poster on my wall, and added a few things.. He put "write 32 more pages in my book" and "start a new hobby" for January, and "finish a climbing route" for February. I stopped him there. I was going to erase what he wrote, because I am terrified to challenge myself. I became rather upset, and I had to take a moment to compose myself. I am TERRIFIED to do anything I'm not already sure of. But then I realized I was being stupid, and I left them up. And I'm actually going to try. The rock climbing one.. Well, no promises. We went climbing for our first date, but it's never really been my thing. Same with the new hobby.. I'm being really stubborn and I don't want to change my ways. But the wonderful thing about Batman.. He will make me. He will force me to do things I never would do myself. He will challenge me, and demolish these lovely little walls I've built for myself. He does it on a daily basis, and I don't even know if he means to. It's the thing I love AND hate the most about him. And I wouldn't want to change it one bit. (:
I'm actually excited to write 32 more pages. That's a challenge I can handle- I think.
Oh! I also added "Finish Pride & Prejudice" for the month of January. I've only been reading it since June.. And I promised myself I wouldn't read anything else until it was finished. Stupid me. These last few months have been devoid of literary comfort. Sick.
Anyway, here's the list. I'm sure I'll check in and update about when I'll be starting. Gotta get myself together first. (: Thanks, as always, for reading. Love much and forever, Stellar!

New Years!

Another 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8760 hours, 525,600 minutes of struggle, fun, progress, love, pain, growth, and experience. I intend to make the best of it!

That is my current Facebook status. And I meant every word! I'm so excited for this year, I can hardly stand it. It started perfect!
I went to a party with Lisette, her date, and of course, Batman. It was HUGE!! There were so many people, it was amazing. I loved it. Batman gave me the perfect New Years kiss, and we welcomed the year dancing outside in the cold to Argyle. Perfection. Beauty. Love. I couldn't ask for anything more.
And now..
My resolution!!!
My New Years Resolution is to make a new resolution every month. I don't want to make a year-long goal for two reasons:
1. It won't last.
2. It won't last.
Seriously, I mean it. I actually want to improve, so I want a goal that I can keep. For January, my goal is to work out regularly. Nothing too challenging, just enough that I can feel healthy and be active. Not to lose weight, 'cause I'm skinny, but just to be a better me. As the year progresses, I'll make new resolutions based on how I feel I need to improve. I think it will work out great. I really want to change for the better. :D
I'm so excited for this year! Last year there were some intense ups and downs. Somewhere around 5 deaths on my Mom's side.. Definite down. Batman.. Definite up. I'm so happy lately, it's almost stupid! I'm positively giddy with cheer. (: I've been super optimistic lately, and just.. Smiley. I love feeling like this. I love every moment I spend with Batman, and my friends. I love all the new people I've met, the new things I've tried. I love me. (:
And now.. I think I've said enough. I wish you all a very wonderful 2011, and hope you can see the best in everything around you!!
Stellar Meadow (:
