marvelous wednes{Monday}day

Um. Busy weekend/worrying about the week ahead = Definitely forgot to post.
Remembered now though!

Something that is lovely:
Presenting research on eating disorders on Capitol Hill with lovely people and really cool people that make you feel important. Yessir.
From left: Kathryn Heslop, Cheyenne Sachse, Sarah Pope, Aly Bernhisel, and me

State Senator Todd Weiler, myself, and House Rep Becky Edwards

Something that is awesome:
This is a rather sub-par picture of me with the lovely Christiane Noll, but is, nonetheless, a picture of me with Christiane Noll! 
If you don't know who she is, you should first be very sad, and then you should click here.

Something that is fantastic:


bleb noun;
A bubble.
Medicine/Medical.  A blister or vesicle.

Something that is wonderful:
No, not The Twilight Saga. Most of the music from the movies is wonderful though!
I am in love with this song lately. It is... Powerful? Epic? I don't know. Incredible for sure.

Something that is awe-inspiring:
believe in yourself.

Peace, y'all.



Remember this song? I'm sure you do because it's soooo so so so good!
Well some crazy geniuses took the already ingenious song and did something different with it.
The original will always be my favorite, but... This is awesome. 
I aspire to be as cool as these people one day.

Actually, while I'm at it, here's a another cover of it by another of my favorite geniuses!


new year = new marvelous mondays!

I'm changing up Marvelous Mondays. 
No longer will they be a million miles long and be super random and take forever!
From now on, they will include -
*One thing that is super lovely
*One picture of something awesome
*One word that is particularly fantastic
*One video that involves wonderful music
*One quote that is absolutely awe-inspiring

Here we go!

Something that is lovely:
Your friend leaving his Facebook logged in on your computer.
... And that wasn't even all of the comments. :)

Something that is awesome:
Beside reaffirming the fact that my sister is the most adorable/beautiful child ever, this picture screams "childhood" to me. And I love it.

Something that is fantastic:

n. - additional name. agnomination, n. surname; punning; alliteration

Something that is wonderful:
If my life had a soundtrack... This would be the theme. So gorgeous. This song is a good 8 minutes long, but turn it on in the background while you do something. It's incredible.

Something that is awe-inspiring:

Thank you, Dr. King.

A good night to all!


New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! :) 
I will do an official New Year post tomorrow, to be all sentimental and nostalgic and stereotypical blogger for you, but for tonight I just wanted to share how I brought in 2012.

Some of you may not be Coldplay fans, but anyone who has kept up on my posts will know that I absolutely love them.
In fact, even though there are so many numerous bands that I love, I would even go so far as to say that Coldplay is my favorite band - If I could only listen to one band for the rest of my life, it would be them.
As I scrolled through my Facebook feed, I saw something beautiful -
I just about died. SO, naturally, and needless to say, when 11 o'clock rolled around, I tuned to PBS, even though I was watching the 1961 version of Music Man (that's saying a lot, by the way).
It did not disappoint. And it was seriously an amazing way to bring in the New Year.
Though we did miss a bit to pop in on NYC to watch the ball drop - tradition, you know. :)

Anyway, then I found out that you could watch it online.
And so, without further ado, here is my New Year's gift to you. ;)

Enjoy, lovely people. :)
Also -
77. See Coldplay live in concert.
