All right, all right, I'll do it.

These were posted on Cami's blog, as well as Emily's, and I thought it seemed fun when I read through. Here we go!

Three things I'm looking forward to this year:
  1. Going back to school.
  2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in theaters.
  3. Making some money.
Three joys in my life:
  1. My family, one and all.
  2. Music (my iPod is a prized possession), and media in general.
  3. Brownies.
Three movies I've watched multiple times:
  1. West Side Story.
  2. The Hudsucker Proxy.

Three favorite foods:
  1. Fetuccini Alfredo.

Three goals I've set for myself:
  1. Get a job.

  3. Get married.
Three TV shows I watch:
  1. LOST.

Three random facts about me:
  1. I have a selectively "photographic" memory.
  2. I don't really sing in the shower that much (unless I'm listening to something, then I sing along).
  3. I always wanted braces and glasses as a kid. (One out of two so far!)
Three embarrassing facts about me:
  1. I still listen to music from my childhood sometimes (Muppets, Chipmunks, etc.).
  2. I like boy band music (some...).
  3. I have an irrational fear of frogs (muppet and cartoon frogs are fine, just not real ones).


20 years ago I:
  1. Was getting ready to be baptized.
  2. Was wearing my sisters' clothes on occasion.
  3. Was starting to catch the animation fire (via The Little Mermaid).
  4. Was just getting into readin (My Father's Dragon comes to mind).
  5. Made cassette taped game shows with Cami ("I wanted de eggo!").

10 years ago I:
  1. Was a senior in high school.

  3. Was "dating" the "love of my life".
  4. Was in and out of life-changing troubles.

5 years ago I:
  1. Was plodding (and animating) my way through college.
  2. Was made used to the idea of never serving a mission.
  3. Was getting into the Harry Potter hype like you wouldn't believe.
  4. Was working on and off at the BYU Bookstore and living at the Glenwood (still my favorite college ward).
  5. Had long since left the life-changing troubles from high school behind for good.
3 years ago I:
  1. Was in Pirates of Penzance for the third and best time (first time as a Policeman).

Yesterday I:

  4. Listen to Chloƫ's CD.
  5. Text Lacie and tell her there's no LOST tonight.
Tomorrow I will:
  1. Attend the pie bake-off bonanza (first time in several years!).
  2. See if we can have a LOST night tomorrow after all, then end up recalling it's fireworks night anyway.
  3. Look for a hefty paycheck in the mail, only to realize it's a national holiday.
  4. Think of my foreign land friends with sadness that they can't have a day off.

  2. (Hopefully) have a healthy and fun dating relationship.
  3. Become somewhat self-sufficient.
  4. Have published my book.
  5. Have visited Wisconsin again.
Huzzah, there you go! This was fun, though sometimes surprisingly hard to come up with the proper answers. You win a BCE if you read it all the way through.


  1. Movies for Drew to see:

    Master and Commander
    Crash (clear play)
    Sneakers (oldie but goodie)
    3:10 to Yuma
    Stir Crazy (gene wilder)
    Pan's Labyrinth (clear play)


  2. Apparently I haven't lived... But what is a BCE?

  3. To Cortnie: Thanks for the suggestions! But as for the first three, I have already seen them (in fact, I blogged about Crash just the other day), but I will look into the other three. And yes, Lacie, I posted on facebook about that... Sorry. And Sarah, BCE are the Best Cookies Ever. Basically the only thing I can bake, but really it's okay because those are all one would ever need. Ask anyone, they live up to the name.

  4. AAAHH HA HA! The eggo. Good times.

    Oh, I had lots of other comments and am too tired to remember. Sad.
