Day Forty Nine

Day 49 - A picture of where you live.

I already showed you where I live, but the question demands I show you again. So here you go, this is where I live.  

My state is red.

Day Forty Eight

Day 48 - A picture of your favorite actress/actor.

Ewan McGregor

For a while it was a tie between him and a few other people, but then I watched Moulin Rouge and heard him sing. If I were to have a celebrity crush, it would be him.  

Day Forty Seven

Day 47 - A picture of your favorite place to shop.

I don't generally enjoy just random shopping, so I'm going to go with Barnes and Noble. You can always walk into a book store and find something that you want and I prefer them to Boarders.

Day Forty Six

Day 46 - A picture of where you wish you were right now.

I'm not really not opposed to where I am now, but I would pick a sunny field or meadow that's just a little isolated. I would take some books, a laptop maybe, some food, and my mp3 player and just hang out there all day.    

Day Forty Five

Day 45 - A picture of your room.

My room is kind of messy right now and I don't really want to clean it just to take a picture, so you get this photo I took a while ago. This is my room, just kind of a weird angle of it. I took it obviously on my bed and in the background is my desk, door, and some stuff on my walls.

Day Forty Four

Day 44 - A picture of someone you’re told you look like.
The only people I've ever been told that I look like that I can remember are:

my sister

my mom

and James
(for a whole year this one person on our bus wouldn't believe that we weren't twins)  

Day Forty Three

Day 43 - A picture of something you can’t function without.

I think the main thing I would have a real hard time functioning without would be a car. Pretty much nowhere that I go on a regular basis is in a reasonable walking or even bike riding distance. According to Google, if I had to walk it would take me 2 hours just to get to school!

Day Forty Two

Day 42 - A picture of your dream house.

I'm not entirely sure that everything I would want in a dream home is possible but if it was, here is what it would be. I would want to live in a house that was a good size. Not giant, but not tiny either. Maybe 4 or 5 bedrooms. I would want to live near by some kind of body of water. Preferably a lake but a river would be ok. I want to have some land, but not so much that I'm too far away from stuff and I want to be close enough to my neighbors that we know each other. I always thought the idea of being friends with your neighbors and having block parties and stuff was cool, but I want to have room for kids to run around at least a little. I'd like to have a garden. Not some huge green house thing, but just a small little patch of I don't know, maybe four or five rows. I'd also like to live somewhere where the seasons are all distinctive, but not too harsh. I want it to be snowy and cold in the winter, light, green and breezy in the spring, warm and sunny in the summer, and cool and colorful in the fall, but I don't want to freeze to death in the winter or die of heat stroke in the summer. 

Ha, wow. That's a lot of demands. Like I said, I'm pretty sure a place that fits all these doesn't exist but I guess that's why they call it a dream, because it doesn't exist. Or at least not yet. Oh, I just remembered something else. I want to be able to paint the outside of my own house. I don't that weird plastic stuff that I've got on my house now. Oh yeah, and obviously I don't want the cost of living to be too high!

Day Forty one

Day 41 - A picture of your pet.

We've got a few pets in our house: a rabbit, a pair of mice, some fish, and a cat, but most belong to my sister. One of the mice is mine, her name is Bromsley.

This is our cat Trixie. We've had here for about 3 1/2 years now, we actually got her the same day Hillary and Scott were "married". We found her as a poor starving little kitten, she followed me home. She isn't the brightest box of rocks, but she's cute.

I don't think that it's possible for her to sleep normally, it either has to be spread out on her back like this...

or she has to be "holding" something.

Day Forty

Day 40 - A picture of your favorite Disney character.

Well, I sort of just told you that my favorite movie was a Disney movie, so naturally that would make my favorite character Cliff Secord, the main character in The Rocketeer. 


I suppose though that you all want me to pick some Disney princess or an animated character. Hmmmm.... 

Ariel is my favorite Disney Princess. I don't know why, she just is. For a while I was thinking maybe Bell, since she is probably the one with the most personality, but no, it's Ariel. Maybe it's because she doesn't have any real life threatening or catastrophic problem she wants to solve. She's already a princess and her Dad's favorite, she has a great voice, she has friends, and she gets along with the mer-people I suppose. She has a pretty good life, she just knows that she would be happier somewhere else and she peruses that. That and like every teenage girl who has ever seen The Little Mermaid, I love the music, particularly "A Part of Your world".  

Day Thirty Nine

Day 39 - A picture of your favorite movie.

It came out two years before I was born and it's kind of a goofy Disney superhero movie set in the 30's, but I love it. This is one of those movies that I watched 1,000 times as a kid. I don't know if I saw it when I was older if I would still like it as well, but I think so. I love the music to it too. Also, the bad guy is Timothy Dalton, which is kind of cool. For some reason though, almost no one that I know of has seen The Rocketeer, which is really too bad, considering how incredible it is. If you haven't seen it, which chances are you probably haven't, you should really change that. Just remember that it's Disney, and a kid's movie (although I'm pretty sure this is one of Disney's best movies, if not the best), and came out 20 years ago. If for some crazy, unthinkable reason you end up not loving The Rocketeer, at least you can hear its fantastic theme. 

Day Thirty Eight

Day 38 - A picture of the best part of your day.

I have no idea who these people are but I didn't have a picture of what I wanted, so these people get to represent it.

I don't think that I have one particular thing that happens to me every day that I would say is my favorite, but if I had to pick something that happens frequently then I guess I would choose on Tuesdays and Thursdays when Andrew, Derek, Karoline (if she isn't busy) and I have an hour before our various classes. We always talk about the most random things, like Mama Ray and the wheelchair race, or last Thursday when Karoline's backpack was stolen by a crazy, old, homeless, samurai, ninja. Also Karoline's hand became a spider and I think Andrew was Batman. Tuesdays and Thursdays are also always the days where there are random fairs or events going on. We've gone to I think two of those. Andrew and I always talk about the stock market too, which makes me feel both cool and nerdy at the same time.

Day Thirty Seven

Day 37 - A picture of the people you spend most of your time with.

No surprise here right? You've seen most of these people before. This was the 8th grade Valentines day dance at our middle school. We all went to the same school except for Karoline, she came with Riley. In fact, middle school is were I met all of these people. Except for Riley and Karoline, who I went to church with. So just in case you forgot them, I'll introduce you to these people again. 
Top row: James, Chelsea, Hillary, Scott
Bottom row: Karoline, Riley, April (that's me!), Katy

Here we are again! Well, some of us. This was I think two years ago? It was summer so we decided to go to a local man made island. Yeah, that's right, in my area we have our own local man made island, that's how cool we are here. So again here we have Chelsea, Katy, Hillary, myself, Scott, and buried there in the middle is James.  

Another prom picture, but It's one of my favorites and I think we've already establish the fact that some strange  problem of mine prevents me from simply posting one picture if at all possible not to. Here we have: Chelsea, Natalie, Scott, Myself, Katy, and Hillary. This is our high school, or part of it at least. It suddenly occurred to me that you can't see like any of the actual school in this picture. Instead of flowers we all got matching umbrellas, which not only allowed us to take an awesome picture (and were handy since it was raining that day), but I think will also be a lot more useful to me in the overall span of my lifetime. Unless of course I end up permanently living in Utah or something, but I'm kind of hoping that never happens.

Day Thirty Six

Day 36 - A picture of your ‘other half'.

Ha, no. I am not actually dating James Bond. Besides, he's kind of old now. 
 I guess if I were to put a real picture for this it would have to be this one. 


Mystery man! I'm not currently dating anyone, and I've never been in a long term relationship so... yeah. Dumb question whoever made this up. Dumb. I hope you feel bad.

Day Thirty Five

Day 35 - A picture of your favorite place to eat.

I don't really have one favorite place to eat, but I like this place, so this is what I'm choosing. 

Day Thirty Four

Day 34 - A picture of your currently most played CD.

I actually don't have anything to say about this. This is my most currently played CD. 
The End. 

Day Thirty Three

Day 33 - A picture of the house you grew up in.

I don't think I even have a picture of the first two places where I lived, but I'll look. It's too bad, because my first house was mint chocolate chip green. It looked pretty awesome. If I find any I'll post them but for now, you get this.

This is where I moved to when I was I think 10. It was the summer before 6th grade started. I still live there presently.

Day Thirty Two

Day 32 - A picture of a crazy night.

     This is Senior Cruise. It was in the beginning of October this year, and I would defiantly call it a crazy night. Hillary, Natalie, Katy, Scott and I took a limo down to the pier and back, which was pretty awesome. It was my first time riding in one. We were accidentally dropped off at the wrong pier, so we had to hunt down the right one.  It was only one pier down, but it was still kind of confusing. Once we were on the boat, we went up to the top to watch us launch off and look at the "giraffes/ dinosaurs". 
      I had a lot of fun, and a lot of crazy stuff went down. One of my very few stereotypical obnoxious High School drama episodes occurred there, it was the first time I observed high school "dancing" otherwise known as a grindfest (don't worry, I didn't participate), I was mildly concerned that I would be crushed by a falling ceiling and a bunch of crazy dancers (the dance was on the second floor and when you looked up at it from the first floor it was literally pulsing), my first limo ride, and Hillary and Scott got "engaged', even though they already were "married" freshman year. That was fun, we waited until people were quite and then created a scene where he proposed to her. Not too many people were actually paying attention, but it was funny to hear the teachers talk about it. All in all, I would say it was a pretty awesome night, and a great start to my senior year.          

Day Thirty One

Day 31 - A picture of a tradition you have.

Sorry, I only have pictures of this from when I was little.

Pony rides 

Face painting 

There's money hidden in there.

Every year for Labor day my family and I go to the Scott's Picnic. It's the company picnic for Kimberly Clark (which used to be called Scott's), where my paternal grandmother worked for a long long time. It's really a lot of fun and a great way to celebrate the end of summer before the school year starts again. They have a free BBQ lunch including all the ice cream you can eat (A few years ago, my uncle challenged my to an ice cream eating contest. I lost horrifically. I think I quit after about 11. When my siblings and I were younger we would also try our best to eat our age in ice cream), games for the kids, which almost always involves a minor monetary value for the winners, and the older people play horseshoes and stuff.   The place where they have it is near a river so people like to skip rocks and wade in the water and just generally hang out. We've been going there for honestly as long as I can remember and it's one of the longest standing traditions we have that I can think of. This year though they'll have to go without me, since I'll already be in Utah.

Day Thirty

Hey! We're half way done!
Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss. 

This is Josh. We don't see each other as often anymore, now that he's old and has to work at stuff. He's pretty cool, and I miss our monthly adventures. He was also alluded to on day twenty six.

Day Twenty Nine

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile

Didn't I already do one just like this? 

        This was Halloween of 2008 I think. Guess what year of high school this was! Scott is in love with Mountain Dew, so whenever we have some we like to hide it from him and stuff. I'm pretty sure what happened here was that we told him that he couldn't have it unless he ran like a mile or something. So he jumped on this.... exercise deal and went at it for a minute or two. This was the first time Hillary, Scott, Katy and I got together for Halloween and the first time we watched this weird anime where a dragon turns into a jeep. I don't remember what it was called, but it was strange. 

     This happened this year at the beginning of April. Katy, Hillary, and I went to the local Cherry Blossom Festival and we wanted Scott to come with us but he decided he was too lame and was going to to stay cooped up in his basement and torture himself by watching the human centipede. So when we took pictures of ourselves in kimonos, we just pretended he was there. In the first picture Katy and I are linking arms with invisa-loser Scott, and in the second picture, Hillary and I are laughing at him. I think we ended up leaving him in the city.    

Day Twenty Eight

Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of.

Hmmm, well, I covered the only thing that I'm really actively afraid of on day eighteen. Sure, I get freaked out when I decided to watch Marble Hornets late at night or something like that, but I'm not like always afraid of spiders or have some other kind of long term continuous fear, at least not that I can think of. So I guess I'll just have to put up something that I don't like and even though I won't go tearing off into the night when I see it, I'm not really fond of it at all. 

Birds, what is wrong with them? They give me the creeps. The "pretty" birds that are more rare are alright but the commoner ones, like pigeons are just eerie. I don't know what it is about them exactly that I don't like. I guess mostly just that they're so weird and gross. Like I said earlier, I'm not afraid of them. If I walk outside and see a bird I'm not going to start freaking out, I'd just rather not have them be around me. So if you have a pet bird, congrats, I hope you enjoy it. Just don't expect me to hold it or anything.

Day Twenty Seven

Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member.

My elder brother and I are only a year and a half apart, so the pictures of us together when we were young are always pretty cute. 

This is my younger brother and I when we were both pretty little. 

and the three of us 

and then I have a younger sister. Here she is with my younger brother and I. 

and the four of us. 

These are all from awhile ago though. Here's a photo of the four of us presently. 

Wow, I'm just doing great at this whole one photo per day thing aren't I?
