Not a Quitter

I keep trying to blog, and blog, and blog. And nothing happens. You should see the list of saved drafts I have, it's sort of out of control. I miss this. The blogging thing.

But I've been busy. And tired. Distracted. Worried about things I shouldn't have even been worrying about (like a paper I thought for sure I failed only to get it back with a big fat A on it.) And I'll be honest, when given a few moments of down time I usually watch some tv show I missed because of studying instead.

But enough explanation, this is me blogging here because I'm totally not a quitter.

What's new?

Melissa Joan Hart follows me on twitter. No really. I send my tweets out into the world and she reads them. Omg, right? And she retweeted me once. Seriously.

I'm in love with the ABC show Modern Family. It is some serious comedy gold. That and Amy Poehler's Parks & Rec have saved my soul with laughter this semester.

I broke my iPod. Jon also broke every single pair of earphones for both of our iPods, plus a couple pairs of old ones and 2 replacement pairs. Freak accidents, all of it. But still, that's a lotta iPod breakin' going on.

Italian: Mi chiamo Aprile. Sono di Taylorsville, KY. Ho ventitre anni. Ho un fratello. Mi piace la musica e leggere. I could go on...but you get the idea. I know some Italian. Someone asked me the other day what I could do with Italian. Umm, take an awesome trip to Italy and not feel totally lost. Not the best reason to know a tad bit of a language. But you know what? It's enough for me.

Sunday I'm taking the brother and mother to see Michael Jackson's 'This is It.' Super excited about that, not going to lie. I hear it's pretty amazing. And by hear, I mean Liz Taylor told me it was on Twitter.

Holiday I'm kinda not all that into: Halloween. Holidays I'm kinda already stoked for: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cannot wait.

P.S. I love this dog.

Tweetial Pursuit

Remember that one time Demi Moore retweeted me?
Which was weird and whatever and kinda cool.

But beyond that I don't really go out of my way to @reply celebs on Twitter, even though I do admit to following a ton of them.

But I love trivia. And my instinct is to answer as quickly as possible when I know I'm right.
Which is why I answered when Melissa Joan Hart asked this question:

At this point I didn't even know the trivia had a point to it.

But apparently I gave the first correct answer.

So Jon was all, "what did you win?"

Except I had no idea. So I scrolled through and found out she gives out autographed copies of herself.

My very own Melissa Joan Hart picture. I'll cherish it forever as a sign of my trivia prowess.

Quote of the Day

When Christ said: "I was hungry and you fed me," he didn't mean only the hunger for bread and for food; he also meant the hunger to be loved. Jesus himself experienced this loneliness. He came amongst his own and his own received him not, and it hurt him then and it has kept on hurting him. The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by. Every human being in that case resembles Christ in his loneliness; and that is the hardest part, that's real hunger.

-Mother Teresa
