Amazing Movies

Recently, I've seen some pretty amazing movies. I've just got with MY girls and we've loved the movies!

The Blind Side: 
OH MY GOODNESS! I l-o-v-e this one! Sandra is amazing in it and she cracks me right up. It was so funny to see her as a blonde. The story was so touching and I found myself crying and laughing at the same time.. And not just crying because I was laughing (for all those of you who know me pretty well) I was crying because it was tender. I loved the car crash, I was getting all emotional there too. Wow, it was even better to find out that the guy is alive and real! Anyway, it was an amazing movie and I'm so glad I spent the money to see it.

Old Dogs:
I saw this one with MY little Kennedy Poo. I thought it was funny that she wanted to see that one, but it ended up being really funny! John Travolta and Robin Williams are so hilarious in it! My favorite scene had to be when they're at the camp and Robin's son is talking about how the two men are "partners" and the camp director is getting all uncomfortable. It was so funny! I was cracking up. There were plenty of laughable moments and lots of things Kenn didn't understand. Good ol' PG movies are the best!

The Princess and the Frog:
AWWWWWWW! It was too adorable! I loved the music and the fact that it was cartoon. I loved Raymon', but you can call him Ray! I loved the gator too! The princess was gorgeous (which is weird to say about a cartoon). The prince was a total babe too! Ow ow! I would like me one of those. "Escue me, one more time now," (Ray's line) had me CRACKING up! Then he says "I got my big butt glowing" sooo funny! Who doesn't love a classic Disney princess story. The only thing I didn't like were the scary demon shadows! They were freaky. I don't mess with Satan and that was definitely him!


Oh MY Goodness

YOU ARE NOT A CHUB! Gaige is a demon. I like these little loves notes via blog. Honey, I will never ditch out on you. You da you da best.. seriously. Let's just put on our happy faces and smile our way through trials. I'm sure there are hundreds more in store for the both us. TOGETHER WE CAN (shoot the moon, ride the rain, even fight a hurricane- thanks Cheetah Girls!). I'll always be here for you and can't wait for Europe. See you in twelve and a half hours. lol.


MY First Semester

Fewf! MY first semester of college is over, well it is after MY final tomorrow. What a whirlwind it has been! So many changes in MY life and MY family's lives. MY roommates have been amazing and I have been blessed to have drama-free girls. I have loved getting to know them and look forward to one more semester together. Today I said goodbye to Jessica, because she won't be joining us again next semester. It was quite sad, but she's coming to visit the weekend school starts for us.

Because Jessica is leaving us, we took some "family" pictures.

I truly have enjoyed MY classes and surprised myself in math (thanks to Laura Cotts teaching abilities!). MY other classes have been swell too. I liked my English class and the people in it. I would recommend Prof. Tvordi to anyone! She is a great teacher and fantastic about individual help.

Next semester should be pretty tough, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm taking a photography class (so excited)! I'm crossing MY fingers that Santa brings me photoshop this year. I have developed a recent obsession with it.

I have become really close with Mawee-a and I'm grateful that I learn from her daily. I admire how she can handle almost anyone's personalities and is very slow to anger/agitation. Fry, if you read this, I want you to know that through everything going on, I know you've been a huge strength to your family. I know MIndy is grateful for the love and counsel you show to her all the time! Keep it up and do what you've been doing with a smile on your face!


Alexandria Jones' Thoughts on Web 2.0

Wow, Web 2.0 was an interesting video. In the last seconds it says, "We need to rethink copyright, authorship, governance... family, ourselves." I think this is very important, although this isn't the main idea behind the video, it's true. People can copy and paste anything from the Internet without citing who's words they are using. It amazes me that people who study and perfect their knowledge in certain areas can end up with no credit or recognition of their discoveries.

This affects our society because people are beginning to have no ethics when it comes to writing papers or researching. The next generation will have no need for "Works Cited" pages because there will be too much information for people to search through to see if students are using their own words or someone elses.
