Half-bloods (and redheads) Beware!

We lovingly call the "Quiet Study Room" the Chamber of Secrets.
I have been stuck in there for the past three hours.
Don't let the Basilisk get me!

a lack of color

There is a movie that has a quote a little like this, “Stop trying to fit in when you were born to stand out.” (okay okay, that is the exact quote.) I think maybe I have taken this too far. It all comes down to my non-conformist attitude.
I refused to read the full Twilight series because everyone fell into mad obsession over them.
I won't go to Sammy's because it's obviously the 'happening place' in Rexburg.
I will not see Avatar. It has been ruined for me by all of the rave reviews.
and today I did not go to the Festival of Colors.
I didn't get any of this-
or this

and I definitely didn't do this

I even planned on going and came home partially for the reason that I wanted to make pink eye boogers for the rest of the month. I couldn't bring myself to do it, though. I just couldn't. Pictures and statuses of the event are clogging up my Newsfeed and I really am happy for all those that went and enjoyed themselves, but the fact remains the same that I just can't bring myself to do such things. Maybe someday I will grow up, but for now I will continue studying the reproductive system. Oh the joys of Anat and Phys!

Chester the Molester- Hollywood Style

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil
So, if you don’t know the story, Rene first met and worked with Celine when she was 12 and he was 38. (Ewww!) They began a relationship when she was 19 and have been together ever since... yummy

cool club

I think I can officially join the "cool club" for one simple and quite obvious reason. I am the queen of head nods. This isn't a talent i was born with,but after much practice i have developed quite a knack for it and unlike many of my other talents (aka being able to touch my nose with my tongue) i can actually use this one on a daily basis. let us explore this greeting further.

  1. so much is said in such a little action- it's like saying, "i know you, but not on a personal, intimate level so instead of going out of my way to ask you a question i don't actually care to know the answer to i am just going to acknowledge you with this nod of the head." it's genius
  2. that cliche question "what's up" doesn't get asked. what is with that phrase anyway? i know that you don't care and more importantly, there is no good answer. obviously i'm not doing "nothing" but i don't really want to go into details about my life and i already know that you figure i am going to class considering it's 8 30 am and i am wearing my backpack. so, really, do you need to ask what's up?
  3. if the intended person doesn't notice you you don't end up looking like an idiot. it isn't a big enough action that people will point and laugh and yet it's big enough that the person will see it if they are looking
maybe someday i'll give you lessons and you can join the club.

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most.

Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.
-Secondhand Lions

I believe that
  • wishes you make at 11:11 really do come true
  • best friends can last forever if you're willing to work for it
  • I can be happy with lots of guys, but somewhere there's a man that's perfect for me
  • Santa Claus does exist
  • the power of the mind is stronger than the will of the body
  • dancing can make any situation better
  • laughter is the best medicine
  • no matter what people do, somewhere inside they are good
  • you can find something in common in everyone you meet
  • there is good in this world and it's worth fighting for
  • "Life's what you make it so let's make it rock!"
  • people are put in your life for a reason
  • when you really love someone you want, more than anything, to see them happy- with or without you
  • happiness is a choice
  • Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus are very, VERY different people
  • if you're going to mess with my sister, you're going to mess with me
  • a smile can change the world
  • Dumbledore IS NOT gay
  • the church is true
  • magic and the priesthood are the same- just ask Harry Potter
  • style is a matter of attitude; it doesn't matter if it's trendy or in style. Your style is in style and you can pull anything off with a smile
  • Nothing is ever so bad that it can't be fixed with prayer
  • Jesus likes me best
  • I can get to Narnia through the cubby under my bed
  • things are only awkward if you allow them to be
  • I can make a difference in the world.
What do you believe?

JINKYS! it's a mystery

Today I have placed my future in the hands of another.
With the exchange of a few papers my entire life could be made
or broken.
That's right.
I applied for the Nursing Program.

I seriously can't believe that I have taken that first step to the rest of my life today. I had been fiddling with the idea of Nursing for less than a month now, but I finally picked up the application papers last week and finished filling them out late last night. It almost doesn't seem real. Is it weird that people have congratulated me on applying? "Hey, congrats on applying!" um... thank you, it was a real trial in my life to fill out some papers, but with lots of help from my roommates I was able to sign my signature a couple of times? Wait, that's not true. It almost seemed too easy. I really don't know what I will do if I don't get in, but at the same time, I am young and really really ridiculously good looking. Prostitution is always an option right?

Just in case you were wondering...

I really love those days when you wake up early so you can get ready to impress a cute boy and then class gets cancelled.

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are getting old. I'm sorry
but Knight and Day was a joke.
 PUT ON A SHIRT, Tommy, put on a freaking shirt.

Pakistan is stealing away my life

I smell like gummy bears and blush really easily

Old crushes die hard... really hard...
 as in maybe saying "I love you" wasn't the worst idea ever.

I saw grass today. I think spring is coming!

sometimes it rains and I wear my snuggie
to social with people. it's no biggie.

and with friends like these, who needs enemies?

Awkward Moments brought to you by Cami

I often think that if someone were to record my life they could make it into a highly successful TV show. I mean, let's be real people, my life is a joke.
Exhibit A
Last semester, you may remember that I had a little crush going on one of my FHE brothers. He isn't here this semester and has almost been forgotten, but wait, life has to throw me a curveball. Today as I braved the winds of Rexburg on my way to class I noticed a sleek black car parked outside one of the buildings I was passing. In my mind I said, "Dang, that right there is a nice car." Then, someone got out. He was wearing a baseball cap (typical) and my thoughts immediately went from car admiration to shock. Yes, I may have wet myself a little. It was him. Thank goodness I did my hair today! Unfortunately, I put some gloss on my lips before I headed outside. This equals that wonderful equation of gloss+wind+hair= glossy, windblown hair. Fantastic.
I brushed my face free of my mane as he approached. My thoughts turned into,"Holy smokes, he is still super good looking," and I put on my best face. He walked over and gave me a hug and as my mind tried to catch up to my surprise I started babbling about the wind and the weather and him and.... what? WHY WAS I TALKING? Stop it, Cami, stop it. I seriously lack control of my mouth sometimes. To make matters even worse, a girl came out of the building and came over and hugged him. What was I supposed to do? Oh, don't even worry about it, I got the cue to leave, but instead of being suave and, for lack of a better word, socially acceptable, I said, "Well, I have to get to class, but I love you and I'll see you later." I LOVE YOU? What was I thinking! Way to be smooth, Cami, you are an idiot. Who says "I love you" before walking off to a kid they haven't seen in months. 250 points awarded to Gryffindor for providing entertainment to the innocent bystanders. I have officially joined the ranks of really eloquent, classy people like Charlie Sheen. In other words, I am a major failure.

I happened upon this while researching Pakistan... may Allah bless you

Those who like me please raise your hands,
those who don't,
 please raise your standards!

Fun in the Sun

Dear Paradise,
I refused to think about you because I always thought you were an impossible dream. Well, things have changed a little. I stomach flips just thinking about you and if I could scream I would. I have never hated my miniscule college budget so badly in my life. Seven hundred dollars is no big deal right? Wrong. Why does happiness have a freaking pricetag? I think I'm going to go throw up.
Love, Cami Louise
Hawaii, only a lifetime away.

I've caught the "Fever"

I know exactly how she feels

Twilight Ruined My Life

It is with deepest sorrow and utter disappointment that I share heartbreaking news with you:

Curse you Ashley Greene.

God Bless

The boy yards ahead of me walked with an obvious limp and exhibited signs of mental handicapps. I was too far away to fully appreciate his predicament as he walked precariously over the slick sidewalk, but I could tell that he was struggling. With a backpack crammed full of who-knows-what hanging off of one shoulder and a left shoe that was bound to fall off at any moment, this kid needed help. I weighed options in my mind of what I should do, if anything. As the distance closed between us, my mind was racing. What should I do? Then something happened that saved me from my uncertainty; a car flipped a U-turn and stopped. The man in the driver's seat was in his mid-twenties with a look of sincere concern that I could see even from where I stood some twenty five feet away. This selfless man stopped what he was doing to help this unfortunate boy and it made a lasting impression on me.
Just as my faith in humanity was hanging dangerously off a sharp cliff, a stranger  saved the day. You hear stories of good samaritans and strangers doing good deeds, but until you witness it firsthand it seems like something off the Silver Screen. Get ready, friends, because charity lives on! This man probably doesn't know the extent of what he did, but I feel a need to go out and help someone. Look around! There are people all around us everyday that need our help and it's our responsibility to do something about it. It's time to be someone else's miracle.
