Soundtrack of My Life!

Ok..so in High School when I took English 1010, we did this assignment called "soundtrack to my life" which is, well, songs that have played a role in your life. Sounds lame? Hopefully not...
:) I decided to do them for the "Soundtrack of 2010"So in no order whatsoever:
The Soundtrack to My Life - 2010 Edition
Anything by Mayday Parade
I decided I'd start out with, quite possibly, my favorite band. Mayday Parade is awesome... I honestly like anything by them....I listen to them quite a bit.
California by Phantom Planet
hah. ok, so I love the OC and this year...well, I rewatched all the seasons, and took a trip to Newport! so I think this song fits perfectly.
One Day Matisyahu
this song..I heard for the first time at Lake Powell this summer and we chose it as the "theme" song for the trip. I love this song now and listen to it frequently.

2011!


I know it's slightly late to be blogging about the new year... but nevertheless...I have a TON of things to do and accomplish this year.

2011:
Another 12 Months,
52 weeks, 365 days,
8,760 hours, 525, 600 minutes,
31,153,600 seconds of:
struggle, growth, progress & experience.

Things I want 2011 to be:

More friends, more memories, more adventures,
more love, more happiness, more laughter, more learning, more growing (hahah...literally & figuratively).
But all I want is another good year!

Life

Backkkkk to school :( meh. I'm sort of sick of school, but it's good for me! Keeps me entertained. I really like learning to be honest. I graduate in....3.5 months! Wow. According to my phone... it is in 102.18 days!! 14.6 weeks. It's crazy how fast life flies..
What to do after that?... hmm. The world is my option. Although, I get so scared to move to a place where I don't know anyone. I've always done the "safe" thing such as moving to college with friends...and not leaving St. George...due to my "safe zone." Well, I guess life calls for some change...but it's scary.

Next step in life:
*More school? Get masters? or even another Bachelors?
*Move and get a job.
*Stay in St. George and work.....
*Move home...take it easy. (noooo)
*Go on a mission.
*Get married...hahaha. not. won't happen for awhile...

Life is crazy...and so I gotta be ready for it! Although I'm quite scared.
I feel old but not very wise...I guess. I have sooooo much to learn. I'm just scared I'm not ready to face the world.

According to one of my favorite songs by Allred...
"I'm starting all over with a pocket of clovers, In a world that won't wait."

I have come up with a things of (3) grand essentials to be happy in this life:
1. Have something to do.
2. Something to Love (or someone)
3. Something to Hope for.

I need to figure out those!

Color Code!

I took this cool quiz thing from this book and it picked one of four colors to describe me! And I know most have heard of this "color code" but after I took it...it's SCARY true. like, the description is in depth how I am and why I am certain ways. It's creepy. I thought I'd post the results! Cause it's pretty legit. I wish everyone would and then I think I'd understand everyone a little more! It'd be sweet.

Ok here we go! Now everyone in this world who reads this will know me on a WHOLE different level...haha................unless you want to stop reading now.

Definitely Blue
Congratulations, you are a BLUE personality. The Core Motivation that drives you through life is “Intimacy”. It is important to note that this does not mean sexual intimacy. BLUES need connection – the sharing of rich, deep emotions that bind people together. As a BLUE, you will often sacrifice a great deal of time, effort, and/or personal convenience to develop and maintain meaningful relationships throughout your life.
BLUES seek opportunities to genuinely connect with others, and need to be understood and appreciated, especially by their partner. Everything you do as a BLUE has to be quality-based, or you won’t do it at all. You are incredibly loyal to friends, employers, employees, and above all to your significant other. Whatever or whomever you commit to is your sole (and soul) focus. As a BLUE, you love to serve and will give freely of yourself in order to nurture the lives of others.
BLUES have distinct preferences and are the most controlling of the four personalities, although they may not acknowledge (or even realize) the fact. Your code of ethics is remarkably strong and you expect others (not only your partner and those closest to you, but everyone) to live honest, committed lives as well. You enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation with your partner as well as remembering special life events (e.g. birthdays and anniversaries).

It almost seems paradoxical, because while you do seek meaningful relationships in your life, and enjoy the company of others, you also enjoy your independence to do what you like to do. This is true for most BLUES because you spend so much time caring for others, connecting with them, and worrying about making things perfect, that you like to have your free time not to have to worry about those things.

Positive:
-Thoughtful, You Emanate Quality And Purpose In All That You Do, You Give Your Heart Wholly And Willingly, You Are A Rock – Stable And Dependable, You Are A Class Act

Negative:
-BLUES tend to be overly guilt-prone, and so if you are doing things that are not purposeful by your standards, you probably feel guilty about it.
-Self-Righteous, Sometimes Moody, Unforgiving, a Perfectionist To A Fault, Untrusting, Too Controlling


Turn ons/Turn offs (in people in general, and also relationships):
Turn-ons

1. Being sincere and genuine
2. Appreciating and understanding them
3. Being thoughtful
4. Expressing interest in personal details
5. Behaving appropriately and being well mannered
Turn-offs
1. Being non-committal
2. Becoming emotionally unavailable or dismissive
3. Demanding spontaneity
4. Promoting too much change
5. Abandoning them / Being disloyal

Well, now you know my deep dark secrets.......... yep.
