Are you so sick of seeing the movie at this point that you’re no longer able to have that emotional reaction to it? Or do you start to hear these grown men cry, and you can’t help but get swept up in it all?
Lee Unkrich: There has been a lot of talk about people crying in the movie. I know…

There once was a boy covered in toads And for each toad, he attached one of his woes
One for the fear of losing his mates, Another for the fear of not being great, One was for losing his dreams Another one for being ripped apart at the seams, The one on his head became his fear of the dark And the one on his toes was the fear of losing his smarts But try as he might, he could never get them off He jumped and he raged but couldn’t get them to stop!
But a girl came along, for whom had the cure "Everything will be ok!" she said, and she just sounded so sure And one by one, she gently peeled them away With a spork and some oil, these toads weren’t gonna stay
And the boy with the toads and all his woes, Found that despite every situation, good things always grow.
Not the ones that have some awe-inspiring quote scrawled across a rather pretty photograph because I actually sometimes relate to those on occasion and more often than not, they appeal to something deeper.
Rather, I’m talking about the ones that are reeeaaaaally lame. You know the ones? With the little four panels of some guy making googly eyes at one of those girls that smile with their lips all pursed up into their face and a face-palm educing caption written throughout.
Ex: “I R superhero, not batman or superman or n e ting but UR MAN LAWLS.”
Okay, okay, I know I’m exaggerating on the stupidity, but I literally get nauseous seeing those things. Really?! I mean, really?!
And those other posts. The ones that say “If a girl does this, she obviously loves you oh so much, don’t ever leave her side.” It’s soo…so stupid. If I ignore you, it doesn’t mean I want you to keep asking me to go out with you or anything, dumbass. It means I really don’t want to talk to you.
Or, maybe according to those tumblr posts, I’m just teasing and I totes want you to take me out for a drink at an inconspicuous club and you won’t just be anyman, you’ll be MY MAN LAWL.
Stephen Hillenburg first came up with the idea for SpongeBob back in 1984 while teaching and studying marine biology at what is now the Orange County Ocean Institute. While at school, Hillenburg developed a love of animation and produced his own comic book called The Intertidal Zone. The co-host of the comic, “Bob the Sponge,” originally resembled an actual sea sponge much more closely than he does now! (1)
So much excitement today! And I’m so excited to blog about it because blogging is fun and its fun to do fun things when you’re excited. Heee ¬‿¬
Anyway, I was hanging out in Starbucks studying my little butt off when I got a call from Forever 21. They’re offering me a position! I accepted it without a second thought.
But as with taxes and death and horrible weather, second thoughts are inevitable. I looked up some reviews past and present employees have given about working at Forever 21 and I gotta tell you, a huuuuge portion of them were horrible! Absolutely negative reviews. But then again, it is a retail job aimed at a general demographic between middle schoolers and like-minded women. The employees hired are extremely dispensable. I’m really anxious right now!
I’ve had 3 jobs so far. My first was at Subway and I gotta tell you, it wasn’t that great. I liked making sandwiches though. :) But it’s very rare to find a first job that you honestly really enjoy. Cheers Jina and Elle for their great timing and even greater luck!
Recently, I’m employed on-campus as an assistant to an American Studies Professor. I’ve gotta say, I thoroughly love it. Not only do I love being the only one that can do the tasks he asks (yay for feeling special!) but the projects that we do are all soooo exciting! I love it and if I could, I would love to keep working for him.
I’m also employed at a little boutique at the Sheraton Waikiki. Maya got me the job and I have to say, I owe her so much for it. It’s a great job as well. The store is kinda slow but the pay is great for the amount of work I do and there are practically only 3 of us working. It’s so intimate and so fantastic and my managers are so nicee and Japanesey <3.
Dunno. Money is such a necessary evil. It’s a like/hate situation because I don’t think I can bring myself to love money. It’s so materialistic.
I really dislike how rude the next generations are becoming. Whatever happened to being scared shitless of saying bad words because you’ll get a slap in the mouth from mommy? I hate going to the mall & seeing little kids, who are probably only 10, screaming “You’re a fucking bitch!” across the store to their friend. Even if their joking, it’s seriously obnoxious. I remember being that age & thinking ‘Shut up!’ was a bad word. They’re learning too quickly, & I hate it. They don’t realize how beautiful being innocent is & how much they’ll miss it when they get my age. Poor babies, growing up before they even get to experience the childhood sweetness.
No joke. I laugh on the daily because of all these stupid memes. And they’re all probably really funny because they’re all probably really true.
Some of them are stupid, I’ll admit, like that Antoine Dodson one. I mean, seriously? That shit died out ages ago (to me, at least) and it’s being horrendously overused (kinda like how the radio takes pretty alright songs and pretty much ruins them. But we’ll save that for another post).
My favorite ones so far? The forever alone ones, FUUUU- ragetoon ones are still really funny, Paranoid parrot (because I think I have some kind of anxiety problem and I can honestly relate to a lot of them. Again, save that for another post) Socially awkward penguin (because I too, am socially awkward), and…Pedobear.
Yeah, yeah, I know Pedobear is a symbol of all that is filthy and perverted. But ohhh, such filthy, filthy fun he has. I feel like a horrible person whenever I laugh at one of the PB memes.
I love it when my sister comes to me after showering and asks me to brush her hair for her. Although I’m in the middle of doing something, I drop it for a few minutes just to wrestle the tangles out of her hair. It reminds me of childhood and it’s proof of just how close we are as sisters, which is something other people can’t say the same for.
That’s our relationship, and it’s a good one.
And then there are my friends. As I’ve mentioned before, I honestly do love them. It took me a long time to weed through the fair-weather friends but I’m glad they took me to the friends I have now. Sometimes shit happens but if things were perfect all the time, our relationship wouldn’t be as strong as it is today, would it?
More good relationships. Wouldn’t trade them for the world.
Boyfriend? I could care less. Right now, life is good and I’m definitely not ready to commit. Not saying that commitment isn’t good, just saying commitment to something other than getting my life going barely makes a mark on my priorities list.
Relationship waiting to happen. And when it happens, it’ll be good because I ain’t wasting my time on something that won’t last.
