Day 14 - A Picture of Somebody You Couldn't Imagine Your Life Without

Well - Let's start this post with a story.

Freshie CP was interested in doing SGA Assembly (which is AWESOME!).
In order to be on the ballot I needed 25 signatures from people who lived in my "district" (aka my dorm).

So little me went door to door on the 3rd day of classes (petition and pen in hand, HUGE smile on my face), looking for willing people to sign my paper.

The first signature I got was that of my darling then-roomie AB, but then I went two doors down. (The next door neighbors weren't in).

I knocked, mentally prepared my speech, and who should answer the door but the lovely:


Training for army lab.
I tried to climb the HUGE rock using her back. . . it didn't work.
She tried to eat me.

honestly college wouldn't have been the same without her, nor would life for that matter.

love ya girl!
(no I'm not as ghetto fab as you)

Day 13 - A Picture of Your Favorite Band or Artist

It's pretty weird, but as a general rule, I don't listen to one artist/band/genre of music.
Not to put down any one artist/band/genre of music, I would just soon become bored.

That being said, my favorite artist whose music I will always enjoy is:

*should you feel like it, insert drumroll here*

Carrie Underwood.

The American Idol winner is always classy, and keeps life real.

Day 10- A picture of the Person you do the most screwed up things with.

Hmmmm tough call. I don't often do very screwed up things, don't get me wrong, it's fun, but often kind of pointless.

The person with whom I do the MOST screwed up things with is...

*drumroll please*

Angie Ward

Love this girl to pieces. She was my first friend at college.
We did some WACKY things freshman year.


(ps: sorry for the lag on day 10, I was getting home and settling into the groove here.)

Day 8 - A picture that makes you laugh

See that bow in the vveeeeeeeeeery bottom of the picture?
Yep, that's me, CDTPrep.

I was running for SGA Vice President and had to take a "nice" picture.
ie one with a sincere smile.

In order to get me to smile two things happened simultaneously:
AngelinaBallerina leaned back in her char and flailed wildly &
LadyFunk screamed at the top of her lungs "Balls and Weiners!".

Those two made me fall over with laughter, and this photo is the result. :)

Day 7 - A picture of your favorite item

Sorry y'all this is a picture-less day.

See my favorite thing is my DVD copy of 101 Dalmations. I can't give you a picture of it because, well, it's at home. It's my favorite (ok it's tied for favorite with Disney's Robin Hood) Disney movie of all-time.

I was obsessed with dogs when I was a little Brynna. Evidently I had dozens upon dozens of stuffed animal puppies. My dad tried to buy me a cat while we were shopping at toys 'R' us and I chose a dog instead.

Day 6- A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day

PHEW long title for this post.

This is my brother, DramaKing.
He's an adorable 16 year old (ladies, he likes long walks and is TOTALLY into going to see musicals)

DramaKing is really cool, but also oddly sensitive, which is why I'd like to trade places with him.

I love him to pieces, though didn't fully realize it until I went away to college. (I know, trust me, nobody saw this one coming).

Day 5 - Picture of Your Favorite Memory

Last November my Dad took me to meet his Army Unit - 691st Forward Surgical Team.

These guys were AWESOME! After getting off to a rocky start, we bonded, and some of the medics taught me how to start an IV.

I felt very important to my Dad then, it made me feel special. I'll always remember this, because I felt really cool in that moment.

Day 4 - A Picture of Your Night.

Recently I had a lovely night outside in the sub-zero weather with
my armyman.

Obviously, since my post is boyfriend-centered, I'm going to take a moment to
describe him in one word - adorable.

Yes, we are kinda dorky, but it's sweet.

Day 3 - A picture of your favorite Cast

Chicago the movie is my all-time favorite version of this musical.

Naturally, being a Chicago resident originally, I had to see it the moment it was released onto DVD.

Richard Gere is a PERFECT, I mean spot-ON, Billy Flynn.
I've never been much of a Renee Zellweger person, but for Roxy Hart, she was outstanding.
LOVED Catherine Zeta-Jones in this also, she has EXACTLY the right range for Velma Kelly.

SO, if you have yet to watch this, either as a movie, or live, go to Netflix, Blockbuster, or the like and RENT IT! Pinky swear you'll enjoy!

Day 2

Day 2: A picture of you with the person you've been closest with the longest.

Me, Mom, and AuntieDear
This one requires a bit of explaining.

I love my mother. She's always there for me if I need her, and often when I don't. I miss her like crazy while I'm away at school, which means I LOVE spending time with her while I'm home.

She's a beautiful strong woman, whom I admire very much. My mom is my rock, my light, my all.

(and for those of you who think I'm a big cheese, she's gonna call me a
dork for writing all this sentimental stuff.) :)

ps: yes, Mom, I'm a dork, but I'm your dork. :)
