I have always pronounced smaug like smog but since the controversy after the movie I have learned I have been pronouncing the name wrong. Check out this post about the correct pronunciation. Pronunciation of Smeowg
Hello, my friends,
First off, someone who understand the mysterious being known as commas tell me does the comma go after hello, after hello and my friends or just after my friends (that last friends came seriously close to being my frieds.) Tonight has been a night of deep revelations, as I stood in the kitchen listening to my mom talk about what she wanted to do with her life, I felt an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. If my mother who is nearing fifty still didn’t know what she wanted to do with her life then was there any hope for me with only eighteen years of life lived? Ok so that was a bit dramatic, what can I say it runs in the family. My mom didn’t get a like on her facebook post after two minutes and complained about being a “facebook island.” Anyways, back on topic my amazing revelation, after my bit of depression I came to the conclusion that all I needed to do was figure out the convergence point of all the things I loved to do.
That opened a new can of thoughts what do I love to do? I started listing things in my head but then I started wondering how do I know I truly love the things on my list. I started sorting things into two categories, the things I do for my own enjoyment and the things I do to make other people think better of me. My list is now much more manageable and I have decided that for now blogging is my convergence point. I love you all and I hope you all have a beautiful week.
On a happier note, it snowed last night!!!!!! It didn’t stay which was dreadful but I’m ok now because it’s going down to negative temperature. I’m having so much fun because my lab gets to come in the house. I can’t get over how huge he is. The only other dogs we’ve ever had in the house have never been bigger than sixteen pounds. Funny story, I was feeding Pippin, my lab, when my little sixteen pound Corgi/Chihuahua mix, Coco, growled at him. He ran away tail between his legs and hid behind my sister, he glanced at his food bowl every few seconds but Coco just growled and he would scoot farther away. Over christmas my phone took a flying leap into the bathroom sink with the water running but it live to tell the tale of the power of rice. It is still working after spending five days in a ziploc bag full of rice. I was skeptical at first but now I am a believer. Rice can fix anything. Yay!
P.S. I posted on Monday, I will endeavor to post again on Wednesday. I’m bored, anyone have any good book or movie suggestions .
As I sat watching Tangled (really I’m still watching it) with my sister and a friend, I started thinking about New Years Resolutions. This year I have decided to post my resolutions online and that way maybe I’ll might be more inclined to keep them.
So onto my resolutions:
- Get a Job
- Blog consistently
- Finish at least one novel (I’ve started at least twelve in the past year)
- Lose some weight ( I think that’s on a lot of peoples list)
There you have it my short but difficult to accomplish New Years Resolution List.
While I’m here I might as well tell you what I think of tangled. I love it. Of course it deviates from the original Rapunsel with lack of death and gore but it is still a sweet story. My younger sister received it for her birthday and even at eighteen, having seen it before I sat spell bound. The graphic are delightful and the song are extremely catchy (which could be a bad thing) also the songs are fun to dance to (too?).
I wish you all a Happy New Year, and may this be the beginning of the most wonderful year yet.
Here are some toasts for our New Year:
- “As we start the New Year, let’s get down on our knees to thank God we’re on our feet.”
- “May all your troubles during the coming year be as short as your New Year’s resolutions.”
- “May the hinges of friendship never rust, nor the wings of love lose a feather.”
- “Here’s a toast to the future A toast to the past, And a toast to our friends, far and near. The past a bright dream; May our friends remain faithful and clear.”
- “Be at war with your voices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”
