Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?

so the other day, I packed an apple for lunch. So when I got hungry (around lunch time) I pulled it out and bit into it... And the fruit was the whitest I can remember eating. I was like whoa! I feel like Snow White eating her apple...
... I wonder when my prince will come? :)

"The Doorway to Norway"

Ooookkaaayy, so this semester has been breath-takingly busy.
Meh. I wake up to go to work at 5 a.m. then classes from 9-4 or 9-6 (depending on which day exactly) then I come home, do homework solidly until I have to go to bed to get up early to do it all over again! Why am I doing this again?!
Oh, that is right... because I have to.
There, there. now. My pity party is over. Now I can do what needs to be done and be happy with that!
Anyways, the moral of this story is: funny things happen ALL the time and even if I don't get to share these gems with people, it's a good thing I learned to laugh by myself when necessary. In my Scandinavian Culture class that is also Comms 381 (wierd, I know...) we have to read a Scandinavian newspaper every week and blog about it. (no worries, I am not turning this blog into a running advertisment for Norway) Anyways, he gave us some websites for newspapers that have been translated into English. And the subtitle to the Norway Post is "the doorway to Norway"
Hahahah. I laughed out loud the first time I read it. And I still giggle, everytime. This may be a sign that I have wayyy too much school, but hey, I think it's funny. We can't all be comical geniuses. Sometimes all we can do is be the person you think of and sigh while saying..."oh kiera..."
that is me.
sigh, ohmeohmeohmy

Before We Begin...

Who can guess which national landmark this is?! Anyone, anyone? GOOD! The Golden Gate Bridge! To get this picture, guess where in the USA, I had to be? YES! IN SAN FRANCISCO, BABY!
hmmm...yes. I took off on a fantastic roadtrip across the wastes of Nevada to the Bay Area the week before school started...
We saw "Wicked" the musical! "I am defying graaaavvvviiittyy!!!" We saw the Oakland Temple and the Jelly Belly Factory! (Wed)
Then we went jet skiing...I fell off and basically ripped my shoulder off... And then got back on and jetted off at 50 mph! Now, that is zoomin for me! (Thurs)
Then we went white-water rafting. Level 3 rapids, so nothing too bad...except the bottom of our boat completely deflated and almost fell apart. No worries though, we made it back alive. I saw the place where they first discovered gold in California!! (Fri)
Then we went ATV-ing. Learned a clutch, kinda. Stalled on every freakin hill I came to. Drove back in the dark. Still supa fun! (Sat)
Then we drove back Sunday. Completely trashed. As you can see...

*note: these are real people, not actors.

Then school the next day...gahh...who decided to come back?!
