i have failed miserably.

I can never commit to anything, I swear! I got bored/gave up on the 30 day challenge. And I was NEARLY THERE! I just got so incredibly busy with the packing and the moving and the graduating that I totally spaced on the blogging thing.

But here I am!

And look!
I graduated!

I think I will create a more detailed post on my post-graduation happenings at a later date. Not that anything exciting has happened since moving home, really. But I'll probably type something silly up anyway.

day TWENTY-SEVEN

day 27: A picture of yourself and a family member.


Because the other day was Mother's Day:



If you don't know who this is by now, then clearly I haven't talked about my family enough. :)

day 27: A song that you wish you could play.










Jon Schmidt's Waterfall.

Isn't it beautiful?! I WANT IT

day TWENTY-SIX

day 26: A picture of something that means a lot to you.


I'll say it once, I'll say it again, I'll probably say it a million more times: My family means a lot to me! But, for the sake of not sounding repetitive, I'll try something else today:




This is my favorite place in the whole world. It's my Oma's house in Germany. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it there!

day 26: A song that you can play on an instrument.








Andrea Bocelli-- Time to Say Goodbye.

It's been a while, though, so I can't guarantee it's any good. :)
Also, I've been working through the Pride and Prejudice songbook, so I can also play this:




It's called Dawn. Oh man, I love this music. And the movie.

day TWENTY-FIVE

day 25: A picture of your favorite day.




My day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Dreams came true that day, yes they did.

day 25: A song that makes you laugh.








Tenacious D-- Tribute.

This song reminds me of good times, and is silly. 

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!




To my beautiful, loving, wonderful Mommy Maus,

I love you SO SO SO SO SO much and I can't wait until I get to see you next weekend! You are the best mom that anyone can ever ask for, and I know that you'll always be there for me, and I'll always be there for you. There aren't words that can express how grateful I am that you are in my life, and I look forward to many many many more wonderful Mother's Days where I can celebrate just how wonderful you are.

I love you!!!

Love,
Your Darling, FAVORITE (only) Daughter

day TWENTY-FOUR

day 24: A picture of something you wish you could change.




I wish I could change the distance between the U.S. and Germany. Or maybe just change the cost of air travel, because one of my favorite things about traveling over there is the plane ride. I love airplanes! I love flying! I love traveling! I'm weird.

day 24: A song that you want to play at your funeral.


Gee, that's depressing.
If I died in a fire, I request that they play this:




Talking Heads-- Burning Down the House.

;)

day TWENTY-THREE

day 23: A picture of your favorite book.






Definitely a no-brainer.

day 23: A song that you want to play at your wedding.




Ben Folds-- The Luckiest.

:)

day TWENTY-TWO

day 22: A picture of something you wish you were better at. 




Oh, how I wish I could play better!

day 22: A song that you listen to when you're sad. 




The Weepies-- World Spins Madly On.

day TWENTY-ONE

day 21: A picture of something you wish you could forget. 


Okay, so here's the deal. I don't regret or wish to forget anything. I look back on past events and I learn from them if I don't like them! So. That being said,


This, friends, is UNLV! Now, I don't want to forget the time that I had at UNLV. I look back on my year and a half there with fondness, because I realize now how much better I have it here! I don't like to bash, but it is a completely different environment up here, and the University of Nevada really feels like home. So no, I don't want to forget UNLV, but I certainly didn't really enjoy it all that much! [Sorry to all my Rebel friends out there, I love you all, just not your school ;) ]

day 21: A song that you listen to when you're happy.




\


Vampire Weekend-- Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.

Oh, Vampire Weekend. I love them so!

day TWENTY

day 20: A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel.




Santorini, Greece!

day 20: A song you listen to when you're angry.








Owl City-- The Saltwater Room.


I don't like being angry, and I don't think it happens all that often. If I'm angry, I like listening to happy music, and Owl City definitely qualifies as happy music!!

day NINETEEN

day 19: A picture and a letter.




Dear Chick-fil-A,

Why are you always so far away?! I wish you could just be here in Nevada already. But then again, I'd likely become the fattiest fatty in all of the world.

Love,
Your biggest fan.

day 19: A song from your favorite album.








Jack's Mannequin-- The Mixed Tape.

Everything in Transit. I sure do love me some Jack's Mannequin.

day EIGHTEEN

day 18: A picture of your biggest insecurity.






day 18: A song that you wish you heard on the radio.








Bon Iver-- Skinny Love.

I can't get enough of this song, or Bon Iver in general. The radio needs to play it more, that's all.
