  • My Favorite Words.

    'The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still' -Exodus 14:14

    "You've got to know your limitations. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way." - Johnny Cash

    "Courage is the ladder that all virtues are mounted on." - Mr. R. Crosby Kemper, Jr.

    "It's your choice, Ace. People can live a hundred years without really living for a minute. You climb up here with me, it's one less minuteyou haven't lived." - Gilmore Girls

    "Faith, it does not make things easy, it makes them possible" - Luke 1:37

    "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the lights that I have." -Abraham Lincoln

    "Writing is a struggle against silence." - Carlos Fuentes

    "At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away." - Grey's Anatomy

    "Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them." - Marilyn Monroe

    “It’s not that I believe everything happens for a reason. Some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is." – Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

    "Opportunity knocks; that doesn't mean you have to knock the door off the hinges." - Sam Herringshaw

    "Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors." – William P. Young, The Shack

    ‎"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." - Robin Williams

    "I think I'd miss you even if I'd never met you."-The Wedding Date

    "If you don't even believe in the possibility of magic, you'll never ever find it." - Castle

We promise to grow up tomorrow…

We are trying to grow up, I promise, we really are.

But something tells me that even if we “grow up,” that still doesn’t account for blond moments, inside jokes and being two of the most easily amused young twenty-somethings you will ever meet.

Me & The Best Friend

Me & The Best Friend

With that said, the start of our senior year has been nothing short of awesome and we’ve continued to grace those around us with our “moments.”

Who knew that our silly antics as freshmen in college would grow a long list of memories that are still just as amusing. (Don’t know what list I’m referring to? Check it out HERE.)

So here are Amanda & Megan Moments: Fall 2012 edition.

Enjoy!

WHEN AMANDA, KYLA, AND MEGAN WERE TALKING ABOUT HANGING UP THEIR SCHEDULES: Kyla: “Yeah, Megan, did you see that we hung ours up already?” Amanda: “Except Kyla made hers too big so there’s no room for yours….but don’t worry, we can move the monkeys.” Megan: “Amanda…think about what you just said…now imagine if someone would have heard what you just said and not heard the beginning of that conversation…they would be very confused.”

WHEN DRIVING DOWN BLUEMONT: Amanda: “Ugh. I really don’t like Avalanches. I think they are ugly.” Megan (giving Amanda the craziest look): “What!?! When were you in an avalanche? Oh wait…..you are talking about the truck.”

WHEN TALKING AT BREAKFAST: Amanda: “See, when I have kids, I hope that they are really adorable….otherwise I’m going to be super disappointed.” Megan and Kyla just stared at her.

WHEN WALKING THROUGH AND EXPLORING MENARDS FOR THE FIRST TIME: Megan: “Dude! This place is HUGE!!” Amanda: “Yeah, no kidding, there’s so much…of everything.” Megan: (looking down the next aisle which was full of brooms and mops) “Holy crap! That’s super overwhelming!” Amanda: “Whoa…yeah it is. It’s like fantasia down there!”

WHEN DETERMINING WHETHER WE COULD SOLVE ALL WORLD PROBLEMS BETWEEN 10:45 PM AND 8:00 AM: Megan: “Ready go.” Amanda: “War.” Megan: “Peace.” Amanda: “No Megan, there has to be an action.” Megan: “Guns! Wait….that’s not positive.” Amanda: “Cookies.” Megan: “Now that is a positive idea! Ok next problem….Hunger…..Cookies! Wow look at us go.”

WHEN AMANDA AND MEGAN WERE IN THE PARKING LOT OUTSIDE OF THEIR APARTMENT LATE AT NIGHT, A MAN WITH LONG DARK HAIR, A WHITE TUNIC/ROBE AND SANDALS WALKS OUT IN FRONT OF THE CAR: Megan: (stuttering) “Um, Amm…Aman…Amanda?” Amanda: “…….Jesus????” Amanda and Megan: “OMIGOSH! It’s JESUS!!” Amanda: “This is probably the best thing that has ever happened to us!! We have to tell someone!” Both run over to Mark, Andrew, and Mikey’s apartment and bang on the door. Amanda and Megan: “OMIGOSH You guys! We just saw Jesus outside!!!!!” Mark: “You mean the Muslim guy who lives upstairs?” Amanda and Megan: (pausing to look at each other and consider the idea, then nodding) “Yes, him…..dude, he looks just like Jesus right now, you have no idea!”

WHEN KYLA WAS TRYING OUT THE NASAL SPRAY SHE BOUGHT TO HELP WITH HER ALLERGIES: Kyla: “Dude, this stuff is great! It’s kind of minty…my nose feels minty fresh!” Megan: “If all you wanted was a minty nose, just stick your toothbrush up there next time. Problem solved.”

WHEN SITTING IN THE LEADERSHIP BUILDING IN BETWEEN CLASSES, MEGAN WAS SITTING IN A CHAIR WITH HER SHOES OFF, FEET UP, WEDNESDAY SOCKS ON. A GUY COMES AND SITS DOWN IN A CHAIR ACROSS FROM HER, STARES AT HER FEET, AND THEN STARTS TO TILT HIS HEAD A LITTLE TO READ WHAT’S ON HER SOCKS. Random Guy: “OH CRAP!!! Is it Wednesday?!?!” Then proceeds to get up and run off. You’re welcome, random guy in the leadership building. I’m glad my day-of-the-week socks have now served a purpose other than my own personal amusement.

WHEN TALKING ABOUT HOW A LOT OF SORORITIES ARE USING ” ‘MERICA” WITH GREEK LETTERS AS THE NEW PHRASE ON THEIR SHIRTS: Amanda: “What? But I liked saying that. Damn you greek life, you take away all of my fun.”

WHEN TALKING ABOUT FUNNY THINGS THAT KIDS DO, FOOTIE PAJAMAS AND WHAT NOT: Kyla: “I found some footie pajamas at Target but they were too big for me! I was so upset.”

WHEN TALKING ABOUT THE RADINA’S SIGN THAT SAYS “FALL INTO A PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE”: Amanda: “WHAT?! Seriously, think about what you’re saying!! Fall into a latte? That would be really hot! You’d burn your skin….I don’t want to fall into that.”

WHILE AT THE FOOTBALL GAME: Drunk girl behind us: “Kick the ball! Kick it!! Before they get the rebound!!!” Amanda: “WHAT?! Aw, hell no, you did not just mix sports!”

WHILE STILL AT THE FOOTBALL GAME: Same drunk girl after KU had scored the first touchdown: “Oh my gosh! This is absolutely terrible…this is the worst thing ever! What are we going to do?” Amanda: “Actually, there are a lot worse things in this world..like poverty.” Megan: “Yeah, or war.” Amanda: “Or malaria.” Megan: “Ooo good one. Or burnt cookies.” Amanda: “Awww, yeah, or worse, spilled coffee…” Megan: “….I think I would cry.”

WHEN TALKING ABOUT PINEAPPLES: Kyla: “No, pineapples are scary! They’re all pokey and crap. (Megan just stares at her.) THEY WILL CUT YOU!”

WHEN WORKING AT THE VET LIBRARY, MEGAN HAD JUST MADE A NEW POT OF COFFEE AND WAS CARRYING IT OVER TO THE TABLE. A GIRL WAS STANDING THERE JUST STARING AT THE EMPTY TABLE. Girl: “But why…..(turns around) OH SWEET JESUS! There’s more!!!!……(getting slightly embarrassed) I mean….thank you.” I get a lot of comfort out of the fact that other people need coffee like I do.

WHEN AMANDA WAS STUDYING FOR HER TEST IN THE THROCKMORTON LOUNGE BY PACING AROUND THE ROOM WITH HER COMPUTER: Professor who walks in: “Hey you know there are these awesome things in here called chairs and if you are really feeling brave there are couches to.” Amanda: “No, no, no I only got 3 hours of sleep last night and I have this freakishly annoying talent of being able to fall asleep anywhere.” Professor: “Well then sit up at the table, what are you going to do, magically end up asleep on top of it.” Amanda: “Don’t underestimate me, I slept on a laundry room counter once.” Professor looks at her like she has three heads…

WHEN TALKING ABOUT A CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC: Megan: “Dude, my parents would shit a brick if I did that…” Amanda: “No….your parents would shit a brick house.”

WHEN TALKING ABOUT HITCHHIKING: Amanda: “I honestly think it’d be fun to hitchhike, but I really don’t want to get raped.” Megan: “Well, if both of us went hitchhiking together…would we still get raped?” Amanda: “Yes, Megan, we would…hitchhiking is not an option.” Megan: “But why?” Amanda: “Because I can’t save both of us from getting raped. You become useless at the first sight of fear and I might be small and mighty….but I’m not *that* mighty!”

WHEN WORKING AT THE VET LIBRARY, A GROUP OF STUDENTS WAS WALKING OUT THE DOOR: Vet student: “No, the strippers at lunch and the dinner strippers are completely different….so it doesn’t actually count.” Ummm, what?!?

WHEN TALKING ABOUT FUTURE CHILDREN NAMES: Kyla: “Well Amanda will have to name one Marilyn because she worships Marilyn Monroe.” Amanda: “No, Megan worships food, but that doesn’t mean she is going to name her kid that.” Megan: “Yah but I could name them after food adjectives.” Amanda: “Like Crispy, Crusty, Chewy or Juicy.” Kyla: “Exactly if you named one Juicy you would never have to worry about them finding their name on a pair of pants.”

WHEN KYLA WAS PUTTING ON HER JACKET AND SHE ALMOST KNOCKED BABY JESUS OUT OF THE NATIVITY: Megan: “Kyla!! Be careful!” Kyla: “What? I’m just helping him move out!” Megan: “No, Kyla, they don’t move out until they have to flee to Egypt and that can’t happen until after He’s born!!” Kyla: “Well…I’m giving him a head start.”

WHEN SITTING IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND TALKING ABOUT ALL OF THE MATERIAL THAT WILL BE ON THE FINAL: Megan’s lab partner Lauren: “Well, I guess we should just invest in a lot of crack now so that way we just don’t sleep until the final is over.” Megan: “I do know some sketchy people we could ask…” Lauren: “yeah….cuz that’s healthy….”

WHEN WATCHING THE FOX AND THE HOUND: Megan: “Oh yeah, psh, cuz that definitely looks real…” Andrew (staring at her like she’s crazy): “You’re watching an animated movie!!”

WHEN MEGAN AND KYLA WERE PICKING A MOVIE TO WATCH WHILE STUDYING: Kyla: “What do you want to watch?” Megan: “Uhh, something light.” Kyla: “…like salad light?” Megan: “No….more like yogurt light.” Kyla: “WHAT?!?” Megan: “Well you know, yogurt has things like protein and anitbodies and substance…salad is kind of a filler. We should watch a movie with a bit of a plot line but not something too intense.” Kyla: “uh-huh…..well, what about fast and furious or pirates?” Megan: “Nooo, fast and furious is more like a chicken dinner….pirates is like yogurt though.” Kyla: “WHAT?” Megan: “Well, Pirates has substance and is a little intense but it’s still funny….Fast and Furious is way too intense…so it’s more like a chicken dinner.” Kyla: “Right….Pirates it is…” Megan: “See, now Inception would be like a Thanksgiving dinner…” Kyla: “Oh geez…I can’t do this anymore.”

WHEN LOOKING AT PICTURES OF CUTE BABY ANIMALS: Megan (voice going up about 3 octaves): “OOOHHH! It’s a baby hippo! It’s sooo cute!! And it’s all covered in salad and slime…..aww.”

WHEN STILL LOOKING AT BABY ANIMAL PICTURES: Amanda: “Awww, baby panda. I just want to (makes bouncy motion with hands)…I feel like baby pandas would just be so bouncy.”

WHEN *STILL* LOOKING AT BABY ANIMAL PCITURES AND A PICTURE OF A BABY WALRUS CAME UP: Megan: “It just looks so old…” Amanda: “Like Benjamin Button.” Megan: “I feel like it needs a caption above it saying something like ‘I just pooped’.

WHEN AMANDA WAS RIDING IN HER SISTERS TRUCK: Janci: “Crap there are cops everywhere.” Amanda: “Jancz you know you could try actually driving the speed limit, then they won’t pull you over.” Janci: “It doesn’t matter they are out to get me.”

WHEN AMANDA WAS WEARING HER SLIPPER BOOTS: Janci: “Hey how are you still able to wear your? Mine fell apart!” Amanda: “I don’t know, did you wear them outside a lot?” Janci: ” Nooooo it’s probably because my feet are crooked.”

WHEN MEGAN WAS SITTING ON THE COUCH TALKING TO HER MOM: Megan: “Mom…where do baby carrots come from?” Mom: “Well, when a mommy carrot loves a daddy carrot…” Megan: “No, Mom, that was a serious question.” Mom: “….I don’t know how to give you a serious answer…go google it or something.”

WHEN AMANDA’S FAMILY STOPPED AT A MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN SEATTLE TO EAT DINNER AFTER DRIVING AROUND FOR AN HOUR TO FIND A PLACE: Amanda: “Look Dad they have a fish section on the menu, you can have seafood after all.” Dad: “No now I’m took irritated, I need beef.”

WHEN TALKING ABOUT CHRISTMAS: Andrew: “Yeah, but those are going to be stuffing stockers.” Megan: “Oh, got it, that makes sense.” Andrew: “Wait…did I say that right?” Megan: “Uhh, I think so…” Andrew: “Nope….no I didn’t. It’s definitely supposed to be ‘stocking stuffers’.”
