One Direction

Ok guys, lets talk about One Direction.

Well, I guess this isn’t really talking… More like me writing and you reading. But I feel like we are connected… Sort of… Now I’m creeping myself out.

I like One Direction.

Image

I REALLY like One Direction.

And it’s kind of weird. Because I’ll be honest… Up until about 2 months ago, I could have cared less about them. I knew next to nothing about them. Except that the one, with the hair, dated Taylor Swift. I couldn’t name all of them. I knew they were European and highly attractive. I knew they sang “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” (ironically I don’t like this song – I know, I know, I’m the worst fan ever).

Image

Honestly, it’s just unfair that there are 5 guys that are that attractive, and talented, and lovely people.

I don’t know how it happened. I had listened to “Best Song Ever” when it came out, and I didn’t think much of it. But then somehow at the end of August/beginning of September something happened. And I just went nuts. I decided to watch EVERY SINGLE video on their YouTube and Vevo channels. I don’t know why. I just did. And I fell hopelessly in love with One Direction. It’s a slippery slope man… I’ll never be the same. I know too much. I follow them all on Twitter. I follow their updates and change the time zones on my iPhone so I know what time it is where they are. I watch old concerts and interviews of them. I know their freaking birthdays now.

Image

So perfect…

It’s becoming a problem. I’m 24 years old for goodness sake… Who am I kidding. My only regret is that it took me this long to really fall in love with them. They are lovely. Pretty much the rest of this post is gonna be pictures of these gorgeous, wonderful, talented, kind, generous, attractive, hott, lovely boys.

Image

Niall Horan. Irish. 20 years old. The most attractive person on this earth. Best laugh I’ve ever heard.

Image

I’m not supposed to have a favorite. But if I did… Niall would be it. I love him. He is perfect. I would willingly have his children – and we all know how I don’t want kids. So that’s saying a lot.

Image

Look at him, all perfect in his sunglasses.

Image

I just can’t…

Image

Harry Styles. British. 19 years old. Apparently is unable to ever actually button his shirt all the way.

Image

Ridiculously attractive. I can see why Taylor fell for him. But I will always side with my Taylor. I want to touch his hair.

Image

Seriously though, there are buttons on the shirt for a reason man.

Image

Louis Tomlinson. British. 21 years old. Notorious prankster. I don’t know how someone can be so handsome yet so immature at the same time.

Image

He has such great hair. And he’s great at soccer. And his girlfriend is gorgeous.

Image

Adorable, just adorable.

Image

Liam Payne. British. 20 years old. Clearly the fittest member of 1D. His biceps… I just… Gosh.

Image

He also responds the most to fans on Twitter. Which I really appreciate. He goes out of his way to talk to the fans.

Image

The scruff… He is so incredibly sweet and kind. He’d just be the best friend.

Image

Zayne Malik. British. 20 years old. The most attractive person of all time ever. Look at him. JUST LOOK AT HIM.

Image

He’s prettier than most girls. Those cheekbones, his perfect nose, the eyes… Models wish they could look like him.

Image

He is the quietest and most private member of the band but he is fiercely protective of the 1D fans. He always stands up for them… us… It’s us now. I’m one of them.

Well there ya go. It’s all out there now. I love One Direction. I’m not ashamed. Now to devise a plan of how to meet them and convince at least one of them to date me/marry me/be my best friend…

BEST MOVIES

Or… ya know… Just my current favorite movies. I’d like to think that my opinion matters that much… But I know it doesn’t.

Warning: This is going to be a long and opinionated post.

Now my favorite movies aren’t really in any order except for the first one. After the first one I don’t really care about the order…

#1 Ultimate BEST MOVIE EVER : Ever After

Image

It’s so beautiful! The feels… The emotions… The Cinderella-ness of it all.

Now other movies… In no real or apparent order because I couldn’t be bothered to really think about it.

~ Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Image

If you don’t think this movie is hilarious then we can’t be friends. This is the epitome of comedy.

~ Hot Rod

Image

Andy Samberg is amazing. This movie will make you laugh till you cry.

~ Napoleon Dynamite

Image

It’s so stupid that it’s funny. It just is.

~ Swan Princess

Image

I once watched this movie 10 times in one day. It never gets old. This is my childhood in a nutshell… Not that I turned into a swan or anything…

~ Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Image

The best musical ever! Also, if I ever need to do extended amounts of cleaning I always watch/listen to this. I don’t know why.

~ National Treasure

Image

I can’t stand Nicolas Cage. He’s awful. At life. But this movie rocks my history major socks!

~ 101 Dalmatians

Image

We used to own a Dalmatian and I would watch this movie with him. He would bark whenever Cruella spoke. No joke.

~ Peter Pan (live action one not the cartoon one, though the cartoon one was good too)

Image

Just a darn good movie. “I want to give you a thimble.” Get’s me every time!

~ Lara Croft Tomb Raider

Image

This is just a good awesome action flick. And Daniel Craig is in it shirtless… So…

~ Fantastic Mr. Fox

Image

I hate stop motion/claymation types of movies. But for some reason, I love this movie.

~ Singin’ In The Rain

Image

Gene Kelly is amazing. I know he’s dead, but if he was alive I’d have such a crush on him…

~ The Hunger Games

Image

One of the few books – to – movies that actually went well and I actually approved of. Also, it’s just a really freakin’ awesome movie.

~ Sleeping Beauty

Image

Hands Down – Best Disney Princess Movie Ever. Don’t argue with me. I don’t care. It just is.

~ Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Image

It’s a classic. If you haven’t watched it… Well I think you’re probably just an uncultured swine of sorts.

~ Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Image

Let’s be honest. The 1st one was the best one. The others were ok. The last one was practically crap.

~ Harry Potter

Image

All of them. It’s a tie. Don’t make me choose my favorite. I can’t. I’ll just cry.

So that’s that.

If you feel the need to argue with my ‘epic choices of greatness’ feel free to comment. I love a good fight.

Taylor Swift

No snazzy title today folks, because I still feel miserable. This will probably be crap since I’m hopped up on cold meds… But here we go anyways.

I love Taylor Swift.

Image

So pretty. So perfect.

Now my love for T-Swizzle is a recent development of about 3 years. I didn’t really care for her… Because… I hate country music. That’s right, I said it. I’ll even say it again.  I HATE COUNTRY MUSIC. It’s crap. BUT I don’t think Taylor is “that” country anymore and her new music is lovely and pop and I listen to it now.

Image

Ohhhh pretty guitar.

Now I love Taylor so much that this past summer, for my birthday, me and my sister, and 4 of my friend went to Philadelphia to see her in concert (actually me, my sister and 1 friend went to see her, 2 of my friends went for Ed Sheeran, and I’m not sure why my other friend came because they just whined and complained the whole time)!

Here are some pictures from that concert!

Image

We are all poor, so we had terrible seats. Absolutely terrible. We were I think 10 rows down from the top.

Image

Yep, could barely even see the screen. Still worth it though.

Image

Most of the time I had no idea what was happening on stage. Still worth it.

Image

Worth it.

In fact, during the concert, right before Taylor Swift was going to come on. There was a HUGE thunderstorm that hit the OPEN stadium. They advised everyone to go inside and hide. We didn’t. I made my friends sit in the rain. So if she came back on we wouldn’t miss her. We got very wet. We sat in the rain for a long time. They all hated me. But the concert was amazing!

(Side note: I was so happy when the concert actually started that I pretty much cried through the first 2 songs. That’s right. I cried. Like a freaking baby. Tears of joy. It was amazing.)

Image

My favorite Taylor Swift song is “Mean” – mostly because I can really relate to it. I got picked on a lot in school. I had braces, glasses, super short hair, and I was fat. So yeah… Not a lot going for me. I also like: “Begin Again” – “White Horse” – “Haunted” – and a lot of other mushy sad love ones… I know I know… That’s like all of them.

Image

She just seems like she’d be a great BFF. And yes, I know she’s dated a lot of people. Yes, I know she is always labeled as the “innocent one” and all these men/boys are terrible people for breaking her heart. Yes, I know she might be the problem. I don’t care. She’s perfect. And lovely. And a wonderful person.

She also just gave a crap-ton of money to start an awesome new school for kids interested in music!

Image

She cares about everyone! She’s lovely!

Also, I have her perfume. And it smells amazing. I smell like Taylor Swift. It’s almost like we’re friends in real life!

Image

Did I mention she is gorgeous?

Image

It’s amazing to think that someone who is only a 5 months younger than me, has accomplished so much in life. I have accomplished nothing…. Well, I know most of her songs by heart… That’s something right?

Image

Big finale finish! Whoohoooo….

I need to blow my nose again.

Ellen Degeneres – Please Adopt Me!

Or ya know… Just be my best friend.

I have this weird tendency – I will talk about how AMAZING Ellen Degeneres is if anyone within a 50 foot radius mentions her name. I love her. She is the epitome of a good GOOD good person.

Image

I can’t even begin to number or go into all the ways that I love Ellen (her generosity, her love, her support, her perfectness, her show, her everything…). She is just a good person. And lets be honest. There aren’t many of those type of people in this world. Can you name one actually really good person? Do you know anyone that is just good. Good. I love my family and friends, but come on, none of them are good in the sense that they are selfless, kindhearted, generous, and wonderful.

Now do I know Ellen personally? No. Clearly not (I would have way more followers on Twitter if I did). But I don’t think this is just a TV front. I don’t think she acts one way in front of the camera and then is a total b**** behind the camera. That just doesn’t seem possible.

She is lovely.

Image

She is also freaking hilarious. She is sarcastic and a silly little prankster. I personally love it when she scares celebrities. It really brings them down to earth in a humbling and terrifying situation.

Image

She is such an adorable jokester.

Image

Other awesome things about her (besides always scaring Taylor Swift – get on YouTube and watch that crap, you will cry from laughing) – she has some awesome friends (like One Direction, Justin Timberlake, and Kermit the Frog)!

Image

Image

Image

AWWWWWW!! (If you don’t think that’s adorable than you are a heartless beast!)

She’s so awesome.

What Does The Fox Say?

YLVIS – The Fox

Not that. Nope. Just not that.

ylvis - the fox

 

(As a side note here, I jumped on the bandwagon a little late for this song. But now I listen to it almost daily and I keep having to convince myself that buying it on iTunes would be a waste of money… Probably. Also I showed the video to my mother… Possibly the best/worst decision of my life. She will now randomly shout out ‘What does the fox say?’)

iHeartRadio Music Festival - Day 1 - Show

 

As much as I would love to talk about the obnoxious Norwegian brothers that make up YLVIS… And the fact that somehow it is on the Billboard 100… And is currently in the top 10 iTunes songs… And the fact that they made the dumb video and song as a huge joke and yet it made them ridiculously famous… I’m here to educate you people.

Here’s some learnin’ for ya.

Foxes actually do make ‘a noise’ or ‘say’ things. They actually have several vocal calls and responses to each other.

For example: barking, alarm barking, vixen scream, warning scream, gekkering (quiet yelps/howls/chattering), huffing, coughing noises, and howling.

What The Fox Actually Says!

Scream of a Red Fox

Good talk. I’m glad we cleared the air here and got serious for once.

Why I Love Gingers

Seriously though, I love ginger people. And I’ve just started calling them “gingers” because I’ve always used the term “redhead” but I’m not sure which one is politically correct…

Let’s start with reason #1: I have always had a soft spot in my heart for ginger boys. Honest. For some weird reason, I’ve always loved ginger boys. When I was little and I would color in a coloring book, 9 times out of 10, I would color the boys hair bright red or orange. It’s just been ingrained in me since the beginning.

Reason #2: Most ginger people have amazing hair! Now, I don’t see ginger people very often, but all of them seem to have great hair. And I’m not just talking about the luscious color that radiates sunshine, light, happiness, and joy.

Reason #3: Famous gingers are ridiculously attractive. Like ridiculous. Let’s take Prince Harry as an example. Or Jessica Chastain. Or the lovely Rupert Grint. (I am guilty of writing Mrs. Alyssa Grint on a lot of notebooks in highschool… and college… and yesterday.) And we can’t forget Emma Stone. (Yes I know she is sometimes blonde… but she is a gorgeous ginger!)

Image Image Image Image

(I think she is one of the prettiest people on earth so she gets a super big picture…. Also I don’t know how to resize pictures yet…. I’ll work on it, I promise.)

Reason #4: Ginger people are super talented! Ok, this one may be a stretch, but I’m gonna try to stand by it. For example, Ed Sheeran is an amazing singer and songwriter and guitarist and Seth Green is one of the funniest people on earth.

Image Image

Reason #5: There are some pretty fierce and powerful ginger Royals. Like Prince Harry pictured before, King Henry VIII (Looks like a fun guy right!), and of course his daughter Queen Elizabeth I (I see she got her looks from her father…).

Image Image

Reason #6: All of my ginger friends are awesome! I have lots of ginger friends (More than I even was aware of when I started this post). I can’t list all of my ginger friends so I just picked the 3 most awesome of them all!

This is my friend Lyzi. Isn’t she just adorable? I know right, just too cute.

Image

She doesn’t qualify for #1, but she does qualify for #2, I mean look at that ponytail!

Image

We can add #3, even though she isn’t famous, she is so pretty! She is also super talented!

Image

Who else can make a rainbow land right behind them??? Sheer talent.

This is my friend Kayla. I know, I know, she’s gorgeous!

Image

So she already qualifies for #3. And while we are at is here is #2, I mean look at that lovely hair!

Image

And as for #4, well I had the honor of playing basketball with this beauty and let me tell you she is very talented. And also she has a dash of #5. Look at that fierce pose as Tyra Banks would say!

Image

This is my friend Dave. Calm down ladies, I know I know… #3 is kind of obvious.

Image Image

#2 is applicable… Even though I’ve seen him have some pretty bad hair days… Usually is it lovely like it is pictured above and below. As for #4, he is an amazing soccer player and probably has the best personality of all of my friends (no offense to the rest of you… and I do count personality as a talent because most people don’t have one at all).

Image

Reason #7: Just because she is a ginger/has super red hair.
