Blogger Challenge: Day 7

Day 7: A Photo That Makes You Happy

Lately, I've been addicted to and I found these photos of relatives.
This one is of my great grandfather. I don't know much about my family on my dad's side of the family, so I was thrilled when I found this photo of Robert Laborius Covington.

This is a photo of my great-great grandfather, Robert Dockery Covington. HE'S GOT A STATUE, YA'LL! When I drive down to Phoenix for the big move, I'm stopping in this town and taking a picture of this statue.
This is me and Emily on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland looking for clovers. This was quite terrifying. But one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

Day 6: Favorite Food

I feel dumb doing this challenge because I don't have favorites of anything, especially when it comes to food.

Food. Glorious food.

I'll eat anything and love it. For I am a goat.

Today, I am craving Japanese.

Blogger Challenge: Day 4

Day 4: Favorite TV Show

It's REALLY unfair to ask this question, as I have an unhealthy relationship with television. I watch more tv than anyone I know, really. So here are a few of the shows I NEVER miss.

Buffy, above all else.
Also, LOST would be on this list, but this season I'm losing interest :(

Blogger Challenge: Day 3

Day 3: Favorite Book

Continuing my form of unconventional blog challenge are some books!

Harry Potter!
I love these books after all these years.

A few Paulo Cohelo books.
I've read The Alchemist, Eleven Minutes, Veronika Decides to Die, and The Devil and Miss Prym. I'm working my way through his books.

Anything by F. Scott Fitzgerald
An amazing author.

Blogger Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: Favorite Movie
It's impossible, again, for me to pick a favorite...because I love all kinds of movies (I don't know if you know this, but I used to work in a movie theater sooo...)

For example, I love dramas and dark movies....

I LOVE shooty movies (I love me some guns)

I love irreverent comedies (above all else!)

Mean Girls doesn't qualify as irreverent...but still an absolute favorite.

And finally, I love the movies everyone else hates. I have a framed Cloverfield poster that I love and it's just one of those movies you have to be REALLY into to really enjoy.

Poor Bewitched...everyone hated you. I adored you.

Blogger Challenge: Day 1

A couple of my friends have been doing this blog-a-day thing, and I've found it pretty interesting. Ask me if you would like the list...

That being said, here we go.

Day 1: Your Favorite Song
(I'm a glutton, so I'm posting a favorite song from my top 5 bands)

Difficult choice indeed. I think in the history of favorite songs ever, Wonderwall by Oasis is probably it.

Secondly, let's go with MUSE. Starlight qualifies as my favorite song from them. Although really, I love anything they create.

Thirdly, U2. It's a given a U2 song would be in here (if you know my history of crossing the Atlantic to see them). I'm having a difficult time thinking of my favorite song, so I'll share with you my favorite song from their recent tour: Ultraviolet (Light My Way).

Next up, The Killers. When You Were Young. Zack bought me tickets to see these guys last year, it was the best birthday present :).

Finally, Foo Fighters. I cannot choose just one favorite song. I will leave you with a high ranking song though: Best of You.

Photo Tag

I was tagged sooo:

1. Open your 1st photo folder

2. Scroll to the 10th photo

3. Post the photo and the story behind it.

4. Tag 5 or more people.

(Let me get this "tag" thing out of the way, I don't know who reads my blog so if you read it, YOU CATCH THE TAG-CURSE.)

This picture is tragic. It's one of the last pictures I took with my camera when I got to Ireland last year. My camera isn't broken or anything, it was just being a b**** and wouldn't auto-focus or anything.

ANYWAY, this is from the day we arrived in Ireland. This park was across the street from our hotel (5 star, might I add) and it was SO pretty! This is one of the many entrances, and of course we all posed next to it. It was a tiring day.

Life as of March 12

So, as of the first week of June, I'll be single...I guess.

It was a hard decision. A mutual decision, mind you, but I think it's for the best.

Unemployment suits me well. I know it frustrates some, but I like it. It will be difficult to go back to actually working. I'm very worried about getting a work schedule around my school schedule when I move to Phoenix, but I'm sure it'll work out.

Speaking of which, I'm enrolled at MCC! I'm enrolled in one class officially, and I'm just waiting to get down there to meet someone so I can figure out the rest of my schedule.

Coachella is rapidly approaching! I am SO excited! I lose sleep over it some nights, seriously.

I never thought I would ever move into an apartment. I know it's not until August but I'm excited to finally enter that world of adult living.

That's all for now. Also, I was disappointed in the new Lady Gaga video, but I love her anyway.
