The Weekly Post: 9/9/12

Song of the week: Sorry by Buckcherry… so if I had to say my favorite song? This’d be it. It makes me feel like crying every time I hear it. Also, here’s some other good songs! Anywhere But Here by SafetySuit and  The Story Left Untold by Every Avenue! I was looking at songs that I had bookmarked to listen to later, and these were sitting right there… I’m so happy I decided to listen to them 🙂

Book of the week: Let It Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle… so I already featured this book in another post, but can I just say, I re-read the first book in this “collection” and asdfkl I want to read it over and over and over… ugh.

Word of the week: flamdoodle. noun. nonsense

Cool fact: Hugh Grant is exactly one day older than Colin Firth! Way to go, British actors!

Something interesting that happened: I watched Love Actually… yeah so this video? Pretty much my life.

Quote of the week: “A life isn’t measured in hours or minutes. It’s the quality, not the length.” –Elsewhere (go read it)

Until next time, Em 🙂

The Weekly Post: 9/1/12

So I decided to recap what I’ve been up to once a week every week…

Song of the week: This is Home by Switchfoot: this is such a great song… I heard it on a commercial for some Disney movie about monkeys that just came out and I fell in love with it at first note (not a great analogy)

Book of the week: I didn’t read any books this week :/

Word of the week: tittle. noun. the dot on top of the letter “i”

Cool facts: If you inhale a pea in can sprout and grow in your lungs! There’s a theater in Russia where all the actors are cats! When cranberries are ripe, they bounce like a rubber ball! Those doves released at weddings and other formal ceremonies are actually white homing pigeons! Sources: and

Something interesting that happened: when I was making tater tots for lunch today, I preheated the oven without looking inside first and after about 15 minutes the house started smelling like burnt plastic… yeah my dad had put a box of donuts in there to “keep them out of the way”… I will always check the oven first before heating it. Also, I survived my first week of Junior Year! It’s weird because I’m actually excited for school this year, because my classes sound really exciting (Spanish III [not so much], IB HL English, Commitment in Adult Relationships [sounds worse than it is], IB MS2 [calculus/statistics], Biology, Yearbook [a dream of mine since 6th grade], IB HL History)

Quote of the week: “I think it’s important to make the distinction between the grade you receive and your overall enjoyment of a subject. This is hard to do when you’re in school because everyone is so focused on the mark.” -Gabrielle Zevin

Until next time, Em 🙂


I just looked up from my laptop to see that really hot teacher standing in front of the door of the classroom that I’m sitting in… and I was totally laughing about strange blog posts… yeah so he’s just standing there staring at me, and when I look up I’m like *holy shittake mushrooms you’re hot… stare stare stare* and he just looks at me and smiles and then walks down the hall. We just had a moment there. Hahaha yeah… it should be illegal to hire hot teachers because holy mustaches there are some pretty cute teachers at our school…

Also, I’m doing a “Weekly Post” like Ariel is doing over at Lots of Love Seattle… so yeah here’s what I’m going to do every week, probably every Saturday because that way my school week has just ended. Oh and I totally just inserted that link using my new found skills of html I learned from Code Academy 😀

So here’s what’s gonna be in my “Weekly Post”

  • A song/playlist of the week
  • 3 facts
  • Interesting things that happened
  • A quote
  • A word of the week
  • A book of the week
  • Maybe a rant/rave, if I have anything to talk about

(I totally just wrote that list with html… yeah be proud of me)

Until next time, Em 🙂
