life's an awkward journey we all have to go through, so we might as well entertain others as we do it!

Happy Leap Day!

Happy Leap Day everyone!

May the luck of the Irish be with you. Go out, leap around, have a good day, and make the best of this day that only comes every four years.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Drip, Drop

Today at school they had a blood drive. I actually got to donate today, which I was really happy about. I was a little nervous going in, but it wasn't bad at all. The needle poke didn't hurt, and the only downside was that I felt nauseous -- but that's liveable. I gave a full pint of blood, and I feel really glad that I was able to save someone's life.

I also got a t-shirt and some snacks. It was totally worth it. I still feel a little weird, and this happened a few hours ago, but I'll be okay. I think I would definitely do it again. It was a good experience, and I'm glad I was able to help out.

Wow, this one is a toughie. I can't pick just ONE favorite musician! There are so many good ones to choose from. (For the record, I hate questions like this.)

15 Facts About Me:

The Meaning Behind my Blog Name:

The Hilarity of Spontaneity

Well, if you must know, this whole blog started with Kelsey telling me I should write a blog. I decided I might as well give it a try, so I did. But the thing that really stumped me was what I would name my blog. I came up with quite a few ideas, many of which I can't remember for the life of me now. But this one was the one that stuck with me. 

Basically, my life is pretty funny, and never what you expect. It's very spontaneous, and I'm probably one of the weirdest people you would ever get the chance to meet (when I say weird, I mean it in a cool way. You would have to meet me in person to know exactly what I'm talking about). So the title sums up my life in a positive, spunky way -- it fits me to a T, I think. Spontaneous, hilarious, life is good. 

So now you know. :) 

And I hope you've enjoyed reading.

La Musica

Songs I listen to when I'm happy:

anything I'm in the fancy for. Right now I would have to listen to Pumped Up Kicks. I love Foster the People.

Songs I listen to when I'm sad:

anything by Lana Del Rey. Her songs are beautiful. And Coldplay because they are amazing.

Songs I listen to when I'm bored:

I just hit shuffle on my iPod and stop when I hear a song I like.

Songs I listen to when I'm hyped:

Hm... Well, I'm not really hyped right now. I should probably answer these questions when I'm in the specific mood. I'm sick today (and have been for the weekend) so I don't really have the brainpower to think and answer these.

For integrity's sake: I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness. That's a pretty awesome song.

Songs I listen to when I'm mad:

sometimes Rage Against the Machine, sometimes Lana Del Rey, sometimes Coldplay. It all depends.

and of course, Los Hermanos. Yum!

Watch your thoughts, they become words
Watch your words, they become actions
Watch your actions, they become habits
Watch your habits, they become your character
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny


An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.


Good government is no substitute for self-government. 

-Mahatma Gandhi

We are not what we know, but what we are willing to learn.

- Mary Catherine Bateson

What lies behind us and what lies before us are but tiny matters when compared to what lies WITHIN US.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

To be nobody but yourself
In a world which is doing its best, 
Night and Day
To make you [like] everybody else
Means to fight the hardest battle
Which any human being can fight;

-E.E. Cummings
