pretty distractons

I'm currently putting 98% of my brain power into studying for my gender psychology class, but I wanted to take a break and blog about something fun and lovey. 

Even in my mental cloud of assignments, finals, reading, and making study guides, I've started to notice some of the first signs of spring. It gives me hope, and reminds me that I won't be living in the library forever. In fact, I'm leaving provo in 6 days, and won't be back until January, 2012. So, in light of the one thing keeping me sane right now, this is my picture list of things I love about spring. :)

You better believe i'm gonna try to replicate that owl easter egg :)

love kel

Songs for a rainy day..

When its been rainy and cold for a couple days straight, when you're still a solid week and 4 days away from home, and when you feel like putting on sweats and a big sweater and curling up in a ball, theres nothing that feels quite as perfect as some sad mello music.

Now I hate to brag, but my roommate Emma and I have pretty much mastered the art of sad songs & mellow atmosphere. We should win an award or something. Not everyone appreciates purposefully listening to songs that make them cry, but for us, if we're not going to be giggly and happy, we might as well be super emo. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have no less than 4 "sad songs" playlists on my itunes.


Anyways, I was feeling really mellow before I found that picture. Now I can't stop laughing to myself. But I still want to provide a solid list of sad songs that are Kelly classics (I've liked em for years). If I were to write them all down, it would just be obnoxious. here it goes..

  1. Throw me a rope- KT Tunstall 
  2. Fix you, the scientist, green eyes & till kingdom come - Coldplay (those are 3 seperate songs)
  3. Hammers & strings- Jack's Mannequin
  4. Almost anything by John Mayer
  5. Just a Dream - Carrie Underwood
  6. After the midnight show - the academy is
  7. I will follow you into the dark - death cab for cutie
  8. Nightminds - Missy Higgins
  9. Samson - Regina Spektor
  10. First Day of My Life - bright eyes
  11. See you soon - coldplay
  12. You are Goodbye - Holly Conlan
  13. Getting into you - reliat k
  14. You belong to me - Jason Wade 
  15. The Best Deceptions - Dashboard Confessional
  16. Near to you - a Fine Frenzy
  17. Vienna - The Fray
  18. Angel - Jack Johnson
  19. Giving Up - Ingrid Michaelson
  20. Details in the Fabric - Jason Mraz
  21. Tired Magician - Lady Danville
  22. Car Crash - Matt Nathanson
  23. Painter Song -Norah Jones

thats how you know

When its only tuesday and your week already looks like this...

When you've resorted to eating a combination of canned corn, black beans, and cottage cheese for lunch 3 days in a row..

When you don't mind getting a 2nd degree burn because it means you can use one of the owl band-aids your roommate gave you for your birthday...

And especially when you submit a 15 page paper with your name spelled wrong on it...

You know that its time for the semester to just end already.
