Kirsten says the darndest things....

Kirsten Hot Mika, aka my roommate, has a tendency to say the funniest things.

Don't be fooled by her red hair, she's a blonde in disguise.

Examples (and there are many)

- "Quadroon?? ...I've never seen that on a SAT form." -Kirsten on a newfound race
- "Oh...quick, there's only one hour left on my milk."
- I wonder if I keep my corn in the microwave long enough, if it'll pop like popcorn.

The wonder that is popcorn.

I am the proud owner of a 24bag box of Popcorn from Smiths.

ACT II is absolutely my favorite brand.

Popcorn just makes the day a whole lot more fun.

AND. Popcorn has a yellowish tint to it. which I

Devin Turns 15.

Today's my brother Devin's birthday.

My brother is the sweetheart of the family.
I know Ezra and I drive him nuts sometimes, but he always keeps his cool.
Instead of calling me Lauren, when we were little he would call me zsa-zsa. (pronounced "jah-jah).
He comes up with unique phrases like, "make a wish to get a gish."
He deals with me calling him ridiculous names like, "patootie."
I low key miss hearing him say "mack-a-mooch."
I miss our childhood days when we would help each other out with Pokemon on our GameboyColors.
I miss making fun of our parents with him.
He is one of the most humble people I have ever met and he is such an inspiration to me.

I love him with all my ♥.

Best 2nd youngest brother in the world.

Sometimes, I speak with an accent from a made up language.

This phenomenon for some reason only occurs when I'm here at BYU.

You would think English was my second language the way I pronounce my words sometimes.

If anything though, my weird accent gives people something to smile and laugh about.


this = "diis"
food = "fud"

My room is not messy; it is an obstacle course designed to keep me fit.

Welcome to the worst week of my sophomore year existence to date.


(my room was the messiest it's ever been!)

It started out with a BANG, I got 81% on three tests this week. count them 1. 2. 3.

I had a suprisingly heavy workload this week.

Oh & thurs. I lost my planner.
It's funny because just a week before I had been telling everyone how I would die if I lost my planner.
Thankfully I have a second planner, so although I felt utterly lost for oh about a night, I'm back on schedule.

Which reminds me, enough with the negative, onto the p o s i t i v e.

1. My article was front page news.
In a campus desk meeting about two weeks ago I pitched an idea for a front page devoted solely to BYU slang.
The best feeling in the world: hearing people you don't know talk about how funny your article was.
[it looks better in the paper, scans to follow later.]

2. Wed night. I got a package filled with a bunch of these lovely little valentines.
My mom is the cutest and I lover her to pieces.

3. I got a letter from one of my favorite missionaries Elder Frost.
:] complete with a are my favorite for future reference.

If there's one thing you should know about me, it'd be that I can't stay pessimistic for too long; It's against my nature.
