Just about the saddest thing I've ever seen.

I don't know where I found this, but I had to share!





"I just read a comment from a 2004 article by the ny times about the loneliest whale in the world. scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem: she isn’t like any other baleen whale. unlike all whales, she doesn’t have friends. she doesn’t have a family. she doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. she doesn’t have a lover. she never had one. her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. but her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. it is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 51.75hz. you see, that’s precisely the problem. no other whales can hear her. every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. each cry ignored. and with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by."




day SEVENTEEN

day 17: A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.




This is Sierra Vista Elementary school! I have been teaching math to a Kindergarten class there and it has definitely shaped my views on education- in a good way! You see, when I first started the Elementary Ed program, I was convinced that 3rd grade was the grade for me. I still love it, but after a semester with my adorable, loving little Kindergartners, I know I want to teach a Kindergarten class at some point! I still have a love for 3rd grade, but I'd definitely be happier than ever as a Kindergarten teacher!! :)

day 17: A song that you hear often on the radio.






Katy Perry-- E.T.

I definitely hear this song like at least five times a day when the radio is on. I love it, but I'm sure I'll get sick of it soon!

day SIXTEEN

day 16: A picture of someone who inspires you.






J.K. Rowling. This woman came from absolutely nothing and is now one of the most influential people of all time. This woman has had a HUGE impact on my love for books, and I am incredibly grateful for what she has done for the world. :) I am no writer by any means, but her story is inspiring, for sure.

day 16: A song that you used to love but now hate. 






30 Seconds to Mars-- The Kill.

Okay, I'll admit that I don't think I ever really liked this song. I only listened to it because I LOOOOVED Jared Leto. Requiem for a Dream made me realize what a cutie I used to think he was. But now this song gives me a headache. And also I cringe.

day FIFTEEN

day 15: A picture of something you want to do before you die.






day 15: A song that describes you.






Muse-- Feeling Good.


Sorry for so much Muse, but I super love this version of that song.

I graduate in TWO WEEKS! You bet I'm feeling good!! :)

day FOURTEEN

day 14: A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without.


My roommates and best friends, Rachel Lane and Elizabeth Nubel. My life has changed considerably (in a good way) since I met them and I most likely would not have stayed in Reno if it wasn't for them initially. They bring so much happiness into my life and it makes me sad that in two weeks I won't be living with them anymore. :(

day 14: A song that no one would expect you to love.






I secretly really like Eminem. I mean, not secretly, but it's definitely not something that fits into my music preferences!

andrew mcmahon [Jack's Mannequin/Something Corporate]

day TWELVE

day 12: A picture of something you love.




Puppies!

day TEN

day 10: A picture of the person you do the most ****** up things with.


I'm just going to assume that all those stars mean a bad word. A person I do the most effed up things with? No idea. I don't do effed up things. I think. But one time, I effed up Rachel's hair, wanna see? (Actually, now that I think about it, I effed Rachel's hair up TWICE.) And now she never trusts me with her hair, for good reason.


It's hair that rivals Hayley Williams of Paramore. I thought she'd never want to be my friend again!

day 10: A song that makes you fall asleep.






Debussy-- Clair de Lune.

Man, I love me some Clair de Lune, especially when I want to sleep. I have this old mix cd with this song on it, and it always makes me sleepy. In a good way. It's a good song!

Friday, April 22, 2011

day NINE

day 09: A picture of someone who has gotten you through the most.





day 09: A song you can dance to.





True story. I know the whole thriller dance. I learned it in a jazz class I took a few semesters back, and I just love it!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

day EIGHT

day 08: A picture that makes you laugh.

hmmmm... definitely a toss up between this one...

... or this one.

I love you, Elizabeth. Thank you for being a constant source of laughter in my life. :)

day 08: A song that you know all the words to.

Well that could be ANY song! So I'll just go with this one.... 'N Sync always and forever.


'N Sync-- Pop.

Oh man, I'm such a big nerd.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

day SEVEN

day 07: A picture of your most treasured item.


I'm going to go ahead and be ridiculously cliche here, BUT...



My family is my most treasured item! Seriously. I love them to pieces. But if you're making me choose an actual ITEM...


My little car! It's a reminder every day of how I told my dad I'd stay in town for college, and then ended up leaving anyway. Sorry for breaking our deal, Daddy O, but I'll be home soon! :)


day 07: A song that reminds you of a certain event.








Iglu & Hartly -- Whatever We Like.


This song reminds me of the WOLF PACK vs. UNLV football game in Las Vegas this past year! It was playing quite a lot as we drove around the city in good ol' Hans the truck. I miss Hans!

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

day SIX

day 06: A picture of someone you would like to trade places with for a day.






Emma Watson. The girl is gorgeous! The day I would definitely trade would be any time she worked on the HP set, seriously, that would be amazing. Please don't think I'm too nerdy.

day 06: A song that reminds you of somewhere.










Marit Larsen-- If A Song Could Get Me You.

This song reminds me of Germany! When I was there this past summer, this song was on the radio EVERY time I was in a car. It's such a sweet little song and the video is so adorable. Her voice is so cute! 

Monday, April 18, 2011

day FIVE

Day 05: A picture of your favorite memory.


One of my favorite memories is going to Amsterdam with my parents. It's one of my very favorite places in the whole world, it's so gorgeous. The canals! And the windmills! And the friendly people that all speak a million languages! I can't wait to go back. :)

Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone.






Something Corporate-- Cavanaugh Park.


Any time I hear this song, instantly there is a person that comes to mind. Not going to get detailed, but I can guarantee that this person is always and will always be the first thing I'll think of when this song comes on.

Sunday, April 17, 2011

day FOUR

day 04: A picture of your favorite night.
This picture sort of demonstrates how big of a nerd I am. A little. This is definitely not my favorite night EVER in all of my existence, but it definitely was a huge deal to me this past year! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows [Part One] Midnight Showing. Hooray. We even dressed up. :)


day 04: A song that makes you sad.






Azure Ray-- Sleep.

There's something about this song that always strikes a chord in me. The music is beautiful, but it has such a sad sound. But I love it regardless!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

day THREE

Day 03: A picture of the cast of your favorite show.



Gilmore Girls! I love this show :) I could put up multiple pictures because I have a lot of favorites, but this show is definitely the one I always think of first! 

Day 03: A song that makes you happy.





The Beatles-- Here Comes the Sun.

It's a happy song, I can't help but be happy when I listen to it. I bet you're happy too, now that you've clicked play!

Friday, April 15, 2011

day TWO





  1. Day 02: A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

    Amber! My Ambsie! 
    We have been together forever, since I moved to the U.S. as a little one and we became next door neighbors. To this day, she is my best friend and I can't wait to have more adventures with her.

    Let's go back to Paris and the Rue of Abscesses :) and the MINI-Mosel!

    Day 02: Your least favorite song


    Nickelback-- Photograph.
    This was definitely a toss-up because I couldn't decide which Nickelback song was the one I liked the least. You do not have to click play on this video by any means!
