I am going to be back in Utah Valley in 1.5 weeks!!
Lets make a list of things I'm going to miss about Logan.
  • Maddy
  • Jorge
  • Kim
  • Alissa
  • Pizza Plus. A little.
Now lets make a list of things I will not miss about Logan.
  • The devil roommate.
  • My little bunk bed that I sometimes hit my head on.
  • My family, friends, and boyfriend (because I'll be with them so they won't be missed!)
  • The tiny, yucky, cluttered shower and bathroom.
  • The toilet that is so short I'm convinced it's for elves.
  • Parking outside.
  • Not having a dishwasher.
  • The sleepless nights.
  • Having to pay to do the laundry.
  • Only eating cereal because I'm lazy.
  • Watching shows by myself.
  • My stupid major.
  • The slooooowest internet.
  • Basically everything.
It's not like I'm going to live at home forever.
But I'm extremely excited to be with my family again for a while.
See ya, Logan.

Ps. I love gifs of cute animals.

My groove

I put in my two weeks at work today.
It's bitter sweet because working at Pizza Plus was probably one of my 
favorite things about living in Logan.
But I am moving back to Utah county in 2.5 weeks!
I'm ridiculously excited to get into my video production program
and to live closer to my friends and family again.
Yay for happiness!

Less than a month people.


I just applied to UVU for the spring semester.
I'm in the International Studies program right now and it just doesn't seem right.
On top of that, I miss my family, friends, and boyfriend.
So I'm transferring and going into Digital Media with an emphasis in Cinema Production.
I. Am. Excited.
I had always thought about doing something in digital media because 
I love editing and making videos.
But I convinced myself that it wouldn't be practical.
What kind of jobs would I be able to get?
After doing something I wasn't passionate about for a semester I decided to 
throw practicality out the window and chose something that made me happy and excited.
And guess what?
I'm probably the most happy and excited I've been in months.
So here's to positive change and to the future.

And here's my favorite cover of the week.

This is my life

Story time.

So I had just gotten into the shower. Just gotten my whole body and head of hair wet, when the fire alarm went off. I live on campus and they have this rule that the whole building needs to evacuate in the case of a fire, or in the case of idiot boys on the third floor. I quickly decided that I did not want to go outside soaking wet so I turned off the water and was on my way to turning off the bathroom lights when there was a knock on the door. The building RA had gotten to our room really fast and caught me. She told me I needed to come outside like everyone else. I moaned a little bit, squeezed some water out of my hair, grabbed my towel, and reluctantly followed her into the cold. We were one of the last ones out and I heard a little gasp among the crowd as I walked toward them. Then my annoying roommate chimed in exclaiming, "Haha OMG she's in her towel!! Lololol." (That's how she sounds in my mind). So there I stood for like 8 minutes with a bunch of strangers. My hair was dripping and by the time we were let back in you could tell where I had been standing thanks to a little puddle. It wasn't terrible, I didn't feel awkward or anything, my ears were just so cold! And I wanted to smack a couple people that were whining about the chilling wind.

So there ya go.
An other exciting day in the life of Katie.

Goats are way weird.
But they make me laugh.

Monday, November 19, 2012

The truth is

I hate living in Logan.

When I first moved here I was excited and hopeful that 
I'd make so many new friends, I'd have great experiences, I'd love my classes.
Sadly, that is not the case.

I tried to be outgoing for the first month.
I went to dances, barbecues, bingo nights, pancake parties, study groups.
But it just became hard.
I have never been that person that befriends everyone in the room.
I've had the same best friends since 8th grade.
And I miss them. I miss my boyfriend. I miss my family.
So much.
I didn't realize how hard it would be to leave the people I love.

Everyday seems worse than the last.
Maybe I'm being dramatic.
Maybe I've given up too early.
All I know is that my heart has been hurting for the past three months.

So here I am.
Alone. Depressed. Passionless. Angry
My eyes are red and blotchy as I write this post.
Longing for the place I call home and the people I cherish.

Thursday, November 1, 2012


I can't believe it's November!
In celebration, here are somethings from Pinterest that I love.

I laughed way too hard at this for way too long

This is not even a joke.

This is how I feel about that fact that it's almost socially acceptable to play Christmas music.

This is probably the cutest Christmas decoration ever.
I'm so doing it on November 23rd.

Thinking of you

Jake let me take pictures with him.
Guys, this never happens.
I was pretty stoked.
They are on my ipod so terrible quality.
But I will love them forever!

Also, this song has been stuck in my head for two days.
I love it.

React please

So there is this girl I blog stalk a little.
Mostly because she is dating my (kind of) ex.
They're cute together and everything.
I'm not jealous because I have Jake who is 1000000000x better in my opinion. 
But every time she mentions him I wanna be like,
"I kissed him first."
Just to see their reaction.
Sometimes I think I live for funny reactions.

Of course I'd never say that.
But if it wasn't rude I might say that.
For the reaction guys.

Also, my hairs are straight.
Let the double takes begin.

Not Complaining

I was going to make a list of things that are good in the previous post since all I did was whine but I thought it should just be a new post.
There are positive things in my life people.
1. I have decided on a major! I'm an International Studies girl.
I'm really excited about this because now I feel like I have a purpose up here. 
And one of the classes I'm taking now counts toward it though I didn't know what I would be doing when I signed up for it. 
That was a nice, happy surprise.
2. My bridesmaid dress for the wedding is really pretty.
It's fun to feel exceptionally pretty every once in a while.
3. My bed is wayy too comfortable.
4. I get to be with all my favorite people for the majority of this week. 
That never happens.
5. Jake stares at me while we watch movies with love in his eyes then kisses my cheek.
It's probably the cutest thing ever.
6. I had sushi on Friday and it was magical. Magically delicious.
7. I have the best mom in the world.

I guess my complains and non-complains even out.
Life is pretty great.
One can always find things to be happy about.


My brother is getting married this week!
And do you know what?
I get to be in Pleasant Grove for almost 5 whole days.
I'm super happy because it's starting to suck up here.
1. I'm thinking that my roommate steals my clothes when I'm gone.
2. Also thinking that she had sex on my bed this weekend.
3. Alsoo thinking that she steals my favorite pomegranate chocolates from Costco.
4. Someone used the rest of my coconut coffee creamer that I use for pina coladas.
These people don't even drink coffee.
5. It's getting cold. And it's getting cold in PG too but at least I have a fire place there.
6. I don't have a fire place.
7. I miss my family and my boyfriend and Shalla.
The End.

Good Morning?

What would you say if you had gotten a text from me at 4:30 am that said
"So kinda chop cheese off just to fit into the oil. All just oil :)"
Well I didn't just make that up.
(I don't think anyone could make that nonsense up)
I actually sent those exact words to the boyfriend.
I would give myself funny looks but Jake said he still loved me.

And just so you guys can get a peek at what my dreams are like,
here is a poorly photoshopped picture for you.

I am quite impressed with my half asleep spelling abilities though.
Sleep talkling?
Sleep texting.

Heeee Hawwww

I watched all these Disney shorts as a kid.
In fact, I just watched them again and smiled all the way through.

Donald makes everything sound like a donkey and makes me laugh.

If I had to pick I'd probably go with Kingdom of Jazz.
They's the bee's knee's.

I always wanted a cork gun because of this.

It is on a VHS of course.
Is it dumb that I still love watching my video tapes?
Jake thinks I need to upgrade.
But I still browse the VHS section at DI and get excited when I find one of my childhood favorites.
Anyone else stuck in the past?
VHS? CD's? Scrunchies? That's So Raven? Game Boys? Overalls?
Please don't say overalls.

Thursday, October 4, 2012


Pick me!!

If I was that girl in the pink shirt I would act exactly the same way.
Liam Neeson....
Almost naked Liam Neeson...
I'm sweating.

Tuesday, October 2, 2012


So, apparently someone decided that today is
National Boyfriend Day.
This means that I am going to post about my boyfriend!

This is the first picture that was ever taken of us.

This is the latest picture of us.

A few things I have learned over the past 15 months we have been together...
...I don't like my hair dyed blond.
...I can get really weird if I feel totally comfortable around you.
...If you're with a person for long enough, 
they won't care if you don't shave your legs for weeks at a time.
...Some guys don't ever, EVER wear shorts.
Jake is this guy.
...The saying "the way to get to a mans heart is through is stomach" may not be entirely true,
but everyone likes food so it doesn't hurt.
...Holding hands is one of life's simple pleasures.
...I am crazy for Jake.

So even though it's most likely a fake thing
(I saw someones tweet about it so that makes it totally legitimate)
here's a shout out for my ma boii.

P.S. Just realized that NBD commonly stands for No Big Deal.

No breath

There is no way to really express how excited I am for this.
I will cry so hard for so many reasons.

December can't come soon enough.

Got some beef

I'm just going to complain.

I went home to PG this weekend.
       Came back to find all but a gulp of my almond milk gone.
Before I left I told my roommate she could use my milk if she needed (I bought almond and cow milk last time I went to the store).
       I just watched her put her mouth on my carton and drink.
I went to buy a parking pass and they were "out" of the ones for my building so I now get to park across the highway for the whole year. 
      It's mostly inconvenient.
I swept and vacuumed the whole apartment on Friday.
      Wait, did I do those things? 
Doesn't seem like it...
I forgot all my cutest bras at home.
      This is sad because fancy bras can make or break a day sometimes.

There are days that I want to live by myself.
But mostly with my tidy, loving, awesome family.
I miss those guys.

33rd day

I've been in Logan for a month now.
I miss my family and boyfriend but i like it here.
I am becoming better friends with my roommates every day.
They're all pretty weird.
But weird is good.

Also, I just watched a movie called Romantics Anonymous.
I loved it.
If you have Netflix and liked Amelie I totally recommend it.
It was sweet and funny and in French so that is cool.
If you have the time to watch it tell me what you think!

Conversations of my life

I work at a place called Pizza Plus.
Today an old man came into the store to pick up his medium pizza.
This is how our conversation went.

**OM stands for old man**

OM: I'm here to pick up my pizza young lady.
Me: Okay, what's your name sir?
OM: Well it's the pizza waiting for me. I'm the only person here!
Me: Ohh kay. *grabs pizza out of the warmer* Is this it?
OM: *slams check on counter* It sure it. Was that so hard? I also want a drink. 
**he didn't order a drink so I proceeded to go into the computer and change his total**
OM: Now you don't need to go into the computer for that. I did it in my head and that is enough for a drink. I'm pretty fast huh? Don't need a damn computer. And here's a tip for you! *hands me a quarter*
Me: Oh thanks! Yeah you're right and smarter than a computer. *hands him his cup, start to walk away*
OM: Have you seen all the damn gunk in this valley today?
Me: Well I haven't been outside for a couple of hours. Is it bad?
OM: You need to go out the door and see all the gunk. Yes, go out that door and see for yourself!
Me: *proceed to be confused and look outside* Wow that is bad...yuck.
OM: So where do you live?
Me: I live in Logan but I'm originally from Pleasant Grove.
OM: Well you need to move here! There are some crazy people in Logan and especially PG.
Me: But I like it there...
OM: No. No no. Just get out of there as fast as you can.
Me: Okay, we'll see.
OM: What are you thinking about studying?
Me: Psychology. It sounds fun.
OM: You don't want to do that! There are already enough damn crazy people in this world we don't need to look into their heads. I taught a construction class at Bridgerland for 18 years and do you know what I would say to my students every day? If you have this *points to head* up this *points to butt* then there's to door. And you know what? I have 6 students that are worth 20 million dollars.
Me: That is so good for them. But I still think psychology sounds interesting.
**a girl walks into the store to order bread sticks**
OM: *to the girl* Do you know what this lady wants to go into? Psychology! But you know that knowledge isn't going to be useful in the next life. We're all going to have celestial minds and we're not gonna need anyone to analyze our heads! Damn crazy people. Why would you want to do that!
Me:......yeah...I've got to go make some pizzas so enjoy your dinner! *thinking to myself runrunrunrun*

It was great.
The funny thing is that he came in last week and we had almost the exact same conversation.
Right down to the damn crazy people.
Great fun.
Great, great fun.


I kinda miss this place.
But I never know what to post.

So here is a video of a screaming sheep.

I've watched it at least 30 times.
I even made a ring tone out of it.

I love this sheep sooooo much.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012


I have been in Logan for three days and two nights now.
Going on three days and three nights!
Aweee yeah.

Here are some college things I have figured out since Sunday:
1. Brand new towels are liable to leave blue fuzzies on my dried off body.
2. Noodles expand and when the box says 1/2 a cup it might be serious.
3. I am quickly finding out which shoes I like to walk in.
4. Having a telly with TLC might kill me because I love almost every show on that station.
5. I will drink water if I can reach it.
6. I have to pee.
7. My bottom bunk is actually quite cozy. Every time I lay down there I feel like a cuddle.
8. I feel like Buddy the elf when I take showers in my apartment that was built in 1892 or something.
I'm a college person!

If you have a twitter account please listen up!

Michalla loves Justin Bieber and it would bring some light into her life to get a shout out from him and especially meet him! Amazing things can happen when people work together and I think that if we spread the word enough something awesome will result.

I'll make it easy for you.
Copy and paste this into your tweet box:
@justinbieber please help an amazing girl that was diagnosed with leukemia have some happiness #jbforthecure
I just timed myself and it takes 6.21 seconds.
You have no excuses!
Lets make it a trend and get some attention!!

Also please spread the word to everyone you can.
This really means a lot to me.

PS - if you don't have a twitter account, please just get the word out!
This has potential to make a sad girl happy.

Friday, August 10, 2012

It's Messed Up...

...that Shalla's zodiac sign is Cancer.

8th grade. We be creepin'
This is where my mind is lately.

I saw Michalla today for the first time.
One of the harder things I've ever had to do.
Seeing her in the hospital with tubes everywhere, bruises on her arms, in so much pain,
it finally sunk it.
I've been hoping it was a dream all week.

She has acute myeloid leukemia and will be going through
and bone marrow transplants.

I want to throw up right now.
Or maybe cry.
She is worried about the way she'll look when her hair is gone.
She is beautiful and always will be.

Michalla is perfect and beautiful.

Dazed and Confused

Today is a blur.
My best friend was diagnosed with Leukemia this morning.
On the bright side, it is very curable.
On the down side, she has cancer.
I hate the feeling of helplessness.
There is nothing I can do but love her so much.
Love doesn't make the pain and sickness go away though.

So helpless.

Saturday, August 4, 2012


It's 5 o'clock in the morning.
And I decided to make a gif because I can't sleep.
I was watching youtube videos of Lily Allen and I almost died when I saw this.
She says, "want to see my Keira Knightley impression?"
then juts her chin out and says a bunch of words really fast.

i784vl on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs

It's kinda jumpy, but I had to share somehow.
I think I have a girl crush on her.

Happiness and Tingles

I can't even stand how much I love looking at old pictures of my life.

So into this football game
Without a doubt the best family ever
My mom is stunning and I want her whole outfit

Thursday, August 2, 2012


I think I'm dying of laughter and happiness.

It kinda reminds me of Muppets but real life.
People are awesome.

My Brain Hurts

Here are some ridiculous things that plague my mind every day.

1. What group of people are turned on by drag queens? Is it gay men, straight men, lesbians....? I'm not even trying to be disrespectful, if gay dudes want to dress up like girls then that is awesome. But seriously, I need to know.

2. Why do we have the letter k? And why does ph make the f sound? Why not just stick with f? Fotografy, elefant, alfabet, pedofile, those all seem to work with out the ph..

3. What happens to someones facebook/twitter/blog/social-network-whatever when they die? And what would I do if I saw them post something like 4 years after being buried? (probably pass out)

4. Was this song composed by Danny Elfman?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012


Things that are making me happy this week:

  • Getting off the wait list and into a much wanted Japanese class.
  • Finding a bottle of yummy barbecue sauce that makes chicken nuggets worth the calories.
  • Having a sleepover with my favorite cousin.
  • The great art of cinema.
  • Being able to adequately and painlessly chew after 1.5 weeks of liquids and wincing.
  • Beautiful people.

  • Dinner with my boyfriend.
  • Neighborhood BBQ's that end with fireworks and giggling kids.
  • My family. Every day.
  • Watching drag queen shows with my momma.
  • Pinterest. Really can't get enough of that place.
  • Black and white pictures.

Watery Eyes

College is less than a month away.
Why am I all of a sudden so, so nervous?
I've never been so far away from my family.
I've never known hardly anyone.

At the same time, I've never been so excited.

Let's just say when August 18th comes,
I'm probably gonna cry.

Friday, July 20, 2012

The Darkest Night

My heart  breaks and goes out to the families of those killed and injured at the 
midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado.

I'm so sad.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Fun Facts?

I've been terribly bored today.
That boredom has driven me to StumbleUpon.
And I have stumbled upon something...
something cool and gross.
A website listing random facts about life.

Here are some that are great and some that are disturbing.
-A turtle can breathe out of it's butt...ha ha, butt.
-Tears are made up of almost the same ingredients as urine...tears: the pee of your face.
-If you consume fast food on a regular basis you will swallow around 12 pubic hairs a is that a thing that happens?
-A strawberry is not an actual berry, but a banana whole life is a lie!
-A woman will spend about 3500 days of her life menstruating...that's just sick.
-Facebook Addiction Disorder is officially recognized as a mental disorder by psychologists...the world we live in....
-It's impossible for a female to use both of her elbows to touch her belly button, but men can easily do it...I tried and it's because of boobs!
Okay, it's late and I told myself I'd stop at page 40.
Had to cap it somewhere.

If You Like

Now you're singing that song, huh?
Well, I do like that particular drink so much that I have ingredients.
Namely canned pineapple, coconut coffee creamer, and ice.
Crazy stuff, I know.
I decided to make said drink but this time I added extra stuff.
It was an extra awesome drink!!

Someone gave me Ginger Ale the other day.
I only drink Ginger Ale on air planes so it's just been sittin' in my fridge.
I threw some in the blender.
Haven't decided if it was a good idea or not.

I'm not supposed to have anything with tiny seeds 
(straw, rasp, and other berries of the like) 
lest they get stuck in the cavities where my wisdom teeth used to be and cause infection.
Maybe I'm dumb, but blueberries don't have tiny seeds, right?
Well, hope not cause I put some of those in too!
In the process I dropped two berries in the freezer.
Only found one....poor little, lost blueberry.

Actually, I probably am dumb because I cut my finger on the open pineapple can.
Does anyone even do that?
Apparently I do.

So here I am now enjoying a piña-ginger-blueberry-colada
with a little bandaid on my right bird finger.
Just thought it was a good story to tell.


I changed the name of my blog AGAIN.
But I really like this one and think I'll stick with it.

Cool thing #1.
A month from today I will be moving into my new apartment.
I am so soo sososo sooOOOO excited!

Cool thing #2.
Don't even know how many times I've listened to this.

Cool thing #3.
This was my very fattest face:
This is my face now:
I'd say there's an improvement!

So Indecisive

I am conforming to the world around me.
Like the rest of Utah County, this place looks like a construction zone.
I finally have Adobe CS6 installed on my laptop.
I am going to make big changes around here
and hopefully I will like the newness enough to keep it for a while.
Here is a sneak peak:
I picked the most boring word to preview.
Maybe so standards will be set at boring.
Maybe I'm just boring.
No matter the case, I am excited!

I'm Choking!

Yesterday I has my wisdom teeth removed.
Being under anesthesia is quite the experience.
I don't remember a single thing.
Luckily for all of us my sister recorded the car ride home.
I'm not hilarious but still pretty funny.
If you ask my anyway.

Cut a Cow in Half

I just watched A Town Called Panic.
It was super weird and super Belgian.
I'm a fan of stop motion though so I gave it a try.
If you have Netflix I'd recommend it.
Just so you can experience something new because new things are exciting.

Best Friends

This chick is a ten year old.
But she's definitely my best friend.
I tell her all my secrets.
We talk about boys and clothes and life.

I also think she should be a model.
