silver linings of working all of Labor Day weekend

I get a haircut.
I get free food.
I get to sort of see my family sometimes, when I'm not working.
I get to see my dog.
I don't have to pack extra clothes - Just work clothes and PJs.
I get to watch Netflix with my sisters.
I don't have to do homework (really I just won't have time).
I get to see some of my cool coworkers.
I get to see cute little kids.
I get to work Sky Coaster with two of my favorite coworkers.
I don't have to look great at work - No one cares! Actually I guess that goes for school to but I care here.
I can write letters to missionaries.
I get my most recent paycheck!
I will (hopefully) have time to write some posts!
I get to come back up to Logan when it's all done, and I don't have to work next weekend. :)


dear boys

So Elise is cool and does a fun linkup every week called Dear Boys, and it's awesome, and I'mma join in this week. 'Cos it's fun, and I have stuff to say.

Dear Cowboy,

Really? I just met you and I don't even get to try to know you better? BYU-I isn't even that great.... And it's far away. Stay, yeah?


Dear Flake,

Stop making me feel things for you. And also, just leave already. Or give me some positive feedback. That'd work too.


Dear Homie,

You're awesome, but I just don't feel that way. I enjoy being around you, but you should accept that I've moved and we can hang out when I visit.


Dear Teddy Bear,

I wasn't sure what I would think of you, but I am starting to think I might just like you. More than I thought I might. Also, we have an inside joke, and that's a good starting point. Right?


Dear Interjection and Roomies,

You're all way a lot attractive. Is it bad that I don't care that you're freshmen?


Dear BLT,

I kind of want to go for it... But I can't decide if that's because I actually like you or because I want to. It's a dilemma.


And last, but not least: 

Dear Logan,

I missed you so much. It's so good to be back. :)

Love, Kira


mree speaks my mind (again)

Remember when I discovered Mree?
And how she's like the best ever?
All I'm going to say is that this song is perfect.

Against the Current

So they say

There are other fishes in the sea
But the only one that’s missing
is the one that swims for me.
And so you say,
“Oh dear just wait patiently,
Love will come along, eventually.”

So I tried to swim against the current
To live my life and let me be
So don’t cast me a line 
‘cause I’ve run out of time
To live a lie

I can’t deny
You’ve hooked me so deep again
With your smart and witty lines
You have soiled my disguise 
and then the waves
oh the waves they come crashing down
when I see the look in your eyes
when you’re watching her walk by

“If you’re looking to fit in then join the rest
‘Cause you know you’ll only end up second best”
They said,

If you want to swim along the current,
then act and speak the way we do
You may be untrue 
but if you’d rather be us
Then why be you?

What a beautiful lie to live.

So I’ve learned to swim against the current
To live my life and now I’m free
Because honestly,
there’s no one else I’d rather be.
So watch me leave.

up next

Once upon a time I had several drafts chillin' on my Posts page and another idea for one... I'll finish 'em and stuff, but here's what coming up -

  • More fixations
  • More about my fixations
  • Thoughts on the human race
  • Pictures of Glacier, Yellowstone and Schni :)
  • A good long post on Mumford, because who got to see them live on Wednesday? This girl!!! 
Anyway, I'm sure they probably won't be in that order, and they'll be fairly spread out, but they will happen, and they will be awesome.... Yeah. Have a lovely day! :)



Neglect is serious, my friends. Serious business. It can even cause fatalities.
Me neglecting this blog probably won't cause your death, but in any case, I apologize for being a fail blogger!
I move back up to Logan tomorrow night, so hopefully once I'm up there I'll have more time to give 'er a little more lovin. :)

In the meantime, please enjoy this -

I don't care if you've already heard it, listen again. The guitar is so perfect. :)

Met this guy today! He was really cool and is really talented! If you go to his Facebook page you can get this and two other songs for free! Click here to do so.

One of my favorite covers ever, officially.

I am unbelievably excited for this new album... September 24th! :)

Peace, biscuits.


newsies. but really just new.

Although I do so love that movie. Alan Menken is a wonderful individual who is responsible for some of my favorite music ever! Anyway. To the point.

I would like to publicly come out of the closet - I am a total graphic design nerd. I don't think I'm terribly good at it or anything, but I LOVE it. I love analyzing the design of other peoples' work and sitting for hours creating my own. I love art, but I had never really thought about computer-based art a ton until like a year ago, and now... It's bad. Haha. I'm addicted. A lost cause.

That said, I've been working on a new layout for a few weeks (slowly, when I haven't been working or in Montana, etc.)! It's not quite ready, but I'm really excited about it, haha. I have a few things finished, but I don't want to change things a little bit at a time, I want to get the whole thing up at the same time!

Anyhow, be on the lookout! It's going to be super different... So if you check in periodically, you'll notice... I promise. :)


Elise's Pieces Giveaway!

The lovely Elise over at Elise's Pieces is doing a Mikarose giveaway! If you don't know what Mikarose is, go check out their website, seriously. Gorgeous modest clothes. I'm especially a fan of their dresses! 
Anyway, you can find that here, or you can click on Elise's cute button on my sidebar!

Also, expect a good long Schni-related post sometime in the near future. I went to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks with my family this last week and Schni had some good adventures... :)



UGH, I broke my blog customizations by messing around with one too many things. Lovely people, don't do it. It's sad. Anyway, disregard the ugly layout/fonts/pretty much everything... I'll fix it ASAP. 


guest postin' - With Love, Ivy

Today I got to guest post on a super cute blog called With Love, Ivy!
Have you ever wondered what exactly my major, music therapy, is, and what it can do?
Wellll I talk all about it here. :)
