Compliments are a tricky thing.
I, personally, am awful at them both in giving and accepting. I love and appreciate people so much but am never quite sure how to tell them, there is always awkwardness even when you are telling people something they want to hear. I am trying, however, to overcome that because I believe in telling people that they are good and point out specific things they do well.
When you tell people what they are doing well they will be more inspired to keep doing well. I've seen it in other people and felt it in myself. People need to be told they are worthwhile, because for some reason we always forget.
Equally important is telling people what they can be, we need to be reminded of our massive potential. Numerous times in my life people have told me I can do things or that I am great at things and I didn't believe them, because they were talking about things I had never done. But, guess what, we can do things we've never done before simply by doing them. It is a marvelous principle. We just need the encouragement.
I feel blessed always, for friends and family who have pushed and encouraged and complimented me through various projects and ideas and decisions. I love you all. I should also say "I love you" more.

it's pretty darn funny, yo,
that we'd have taken our chances of gettin' cholera
to get a date with a British suitor, holler y'all!
There are some people around here who are super brilliant.
I just stood by the camera holding a tiny screen and tried not to get in the way for this one.

Keep better track of your sweatshirts.
Keep a better journal.
Lawsy (you get a lot of nicknames between 16 and 23)

Chocolate covered pretzels,
Acai berry tea,
or those chocolate covered Acai berries from Costco,
$1 chocolate milkshake from Del Taco,
Australian apple licorice,
A really good sandwich,
A calf massage,
Maybe some pasta in pink sauce,
A good cupcake.
Or like a chicken sandwich with cheese and apples and lettuce on it.
Is this normal flu induced behavior?
And does someone want to bring me all of those things?
And some bacon.
Just kidding, I don't like bacon.
Probably the only person on the planet who doesn't.
Maybe some jello.
Or an otter pop.
Ran out of Parks and Rec and now I'm watching Portlandia. It's not all that great but is sort of making me homesick.
"My flannel shirt still fits in, in Portland."
And now none of those things on the list sound good anymore. Dangit.
I am afraid of getting my leg shut in a car door. I have no idea where it originally came from but I have been put into situations where I have had to face this fear more than you would think. One of the first student films I worked on, Inspector 42, I was asked to maneuver myself under the dashboard on the passengers seat of an old car, with my legs hanging out the side of the car, while it was pulled down a street. Often when I open a car door it tries to close again and it is just a scary thing for me.

List 20 random facts about yourself.
.I really, really like curry. Indian, Thai, Korean, Japanese. If my stomach could handle it I would eat it every single day...maybe even every meal.
.I'm a film major who hasn't seen very many movies.
.If I lived somewhere cold I would wear flannel every day.
.I'm not afraid of spiders.
.I don't like dark sunglasses. On me or on other people.
.I did, however, find the perfect sunglasses that make everything look like golden hour.
.I'm about to be an aunt again!
.I like dressing up to go see movies. Even if it's not opening night.
.I like green candy and pink candy. Doesn't matter what kind of candy we are talking they're always the best flavors.
.Some people wish their life was a musical. I actively work to make mine one by singing and dancing in public and wearing bright colors as well as often finding myself in whimsical situations
.I've had a blog since 6th grade and have probably written 20 things about myself about 20 times by now.
.I love television shows. I love that feeling of falling in love with characters over a long period of time, week after week, instead of just a couple hours in a movie.
.I love loving.
.I was a vegetarian most of my growing-up years, except I always had this weakness for Wendy's chicken nuggets, my family called me a "selectetarian."

.I wish I had a camera strapped to my forehead to capture all the brilliant moments in my life.
.I was born at 10:13am on the 23rd of the 5th month. 10+13=23. 2+3=5. I wish the year fit into the equation.
.I oddly love having my calves massaged. Maybe more than any other part of my body. Like those chairs in the mall? *drool*
.I love good drinks. smoothies, apple cider, strawberry lemonade/limeades, gourmet cocoas, milkshakes, slurpees, etc.
.In elementary school I hated when people said I had black hair...I still kind of do.
20a. I do calf raises in random places when I'm bored. Especially in elevators or waiting in lines. I also do crunches when I'm just hanging out with people and there is a floor handy. Much to the amusement of BKellz.
