Oh chick flicks

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE chick flicks. The sappy-ness makes me happy, and pretty much I'm always in the mood for a good one. I watched the movie "He's just not that into you" last year and I really did like it. Not your typical chick flick, but good none the less. Today at work, my friends showed me this video called, "10 chick flick cliches you will not find in 'He's just not that into you'". It's utterly fantastic and I felt I should share it with the world. Every single cliche is soooo true. Enjoy!

Photo Shoot

We decided to take Marketing Family pictures for Christmas. Here is just a taste of the awesomeness. I am amazed we could all sort of pull of the serious look. Do you think I should become a model? I tried to "smize" like Tyra tells all of the top models...smiling with your eyes...

Jerusalem Homesickness

It has been 2 years and I still get homesick for Jerusalem. Incredible, but true. I would go home any day of the week if I could. Any single day of my life. So if anyone wants to pay for me to go back, I promise that I will accept gracefully :) Click here for the video made for our semester by my friend Tim. It's the best place in the whole world. I will always cherish those memories, and hopefully one day I will be able to go and visit again!

My love affair

With Musicals.

Every time I go to a good musical I remember again how much I absolutely LOVE seeing them. There is nothing better than fun, beautiful, and touching music to make a play even better.
In the last month I have seen 2 amazing shows, both at Hale Theater. The first was "110 in the Shade" at the Orem Hale Theater with Audra McDonald.

This woman is an incredible performer. The entire show I was just watching in awe at how focused and yet effortless her performance really was. I tried the whole time to just observe and try to learn how I could be better in my performing skills. If I was half as talented as she was, I would be seriously set for life. The show was extremely well done, also featuring the father from "Saturday's Warrior". Surprisingly, he was my 2nd favorite actor after Audra. Who knew beneath all that cheese there was an actually good actor?

The 2nd Show I saw was "The Wedding Singer" at Hale Theater in Salt Lake and it was one of the most fun shows that I have ever seen.

The 2 leads were absolutely incredible. It's shows like this that make me want to be in shows all the time! One day, I'll make it happen :)

Today I was at the Park City Outlets and I was able to go in and see a BOSE demonstration. I was amazed at the technology. I now think I will never be satisfied with anything else ever again. I entered to win a system and I really hope that I win!! Now that I know what sound can be, the question is, can I ever be fully satisfied with normal movie or music sound?

It's that time again...

The time of year I decide to blog. I was talking with Annie now Weiderhold yesterday, and she made me feel guilty for never blogging, so here it is.

I wish I had adventures and stories to tell you all from the last few months of Spring Semester here in Provo, UT, but unfortunately all I have had time for is class and work. I have spent a majority of my life lately in a lab full of dead people, so, I will be telling you some of my favorite anatomy terms and also some interesting facts that I have learned!
