blank'/> Laughing Through the Silences: June 2012

Friday, June 29, 2012

I guess all good things really must come to an end.

And thus ends...the best week of the summer. Yes. Today was the last day of music fest. Last day that I'll ever go to music fest. In my life.

So many good memories. So so SOOOO many inside jokes that aren't even funny. I honestly don't even know what else to say about it. Music fest is honestly the best week of the entire summer. Always. I laugh more than is probably healthy. I laugh so hard that my friends make me go to the bathroom so I don't wet myself. (Yes, I did just share that on the internet. Sorry.)

Anywho, maybe more on that later. Maybe not. Who knows.

One of my favorite songs right now is The Way the War Was Won by Your Vegas. They're super great!


 Also, a current favorite album is + by Ed Sheeran. 

It is brilliant. If you have not listened to it yet, I suggest that you do. It is so good! I'm currently listening to the song Give Me Love off of this album, but my personal favorite is called The City. Look it up. Listen to it. Love it.

Also, I don't mean to attack you with all of these things at once, but they are all well worth your time. I promise. But, watch this video. You will 1) die from it's greatness. 2) want to watch it over 9,000 times. 3) automatically fall in love with my dear friend Peter Hollens (who is following me on twitter, by the way) and want to watch all of his music videos...and I suggest that you do!

Anyways..please enjoy your lives. Goodnight!

"Will you miss me?" "Only if you LEAVE!"

I was going to write this post yesterday, but I didn't have time. Here it goes.

A few things:

1. Yesterday was my dear little sister's birthday. She is...the BOMB! She turned 12 and she is so great. We're basically best friends and I couldn't have ever asked for a better little sister. She is soo fantastic! We do everything together. In honor of her, here is her current favorite youtube video...which is creepy cause this video is quite disturbing. Oh well, Livie! I love you anyways!

2. Yesterday was also Fathers' Day! What a great holiday, right? Fathers are great. Especially mine. In fact, Bailey once wrote a song about my father in the tune of Hannah Montana's song "Nobody's Perfect." It went a little like this:

             Becca's dad is perfect
             he really works it
             again and again and he gets it right.

Uhh...yeah. Beautiful song. It's great and true. Anywho, my dad and I could sit down and listen to music for hours. In fact, a couple weeks ago, I drove to Lake Tahoe with him and back...that was a bunch of hours in the car and when we got home he said that we should've driven the Salt Lake way so that we could've had a couple more hours in the car for listening to music. It was so great! I listen to his old music and he listens to my more current music. So, it was only fitting that I got him an iTunes gift card for Fathers' Day.

3. We went camping last week. It was sooo great! It's been a tradition to go to Henry's Lake for ever. We caught a bunch of fish and also, I got to see my BEST FRIEND! Lauren came with us and she got to meet my crazy family! All of my aunts and uncles and a couple cousins. It was sooooo fun!

Livie even got TWO kisses on the cheeks from these guys^^ for her birthday! Lucky girl!

Also, we eat fish for breakfast. Is that weird? It's never been weird to me cause I've always done it, but I just found out this week that people don't usually do that. Hmm...

"I'm losing my hair," he bawled. Ha! Get it?! BAWLED!

Oh yeah! Bloggie got a makeover! Hope y'all like it! I wanted something that looked more like SUMMER so I did this! Also, I don't care if you're young, old, male, female, short, get the idea...EVERYBODY in the world should partake in this. It is wonderful. Honestly. When you click on that link, and it says something about tampons, be not alarmed! Do what it says! Type in your name and watch the magic! You will not regret it. I promise. You're life will improve so much if you do this. It's pretty old, maybe you've already seen it....but, I'm just now deciding to share it with you. Aren't I nice? (The answer to that question is yes...) Anywho, go do it NOW! That's right. NOW!

So what if I'm terrified?!

I spent my night last night...tossing and turning...dreaming about my drivers' test.
Yes, I am an almost 17 year old girl who still hasn't gotten her drivers' license.
Why? Well, not because my parents won't let me or anything like that. In fact, my parents are mad at me because I haven't gotten my license yet. Actually, that partially is the reason. I had to get $500 before I could get my license and it has taken me forever.
The real reason why I don't have my license is because driving is the most terrifying thing in the world for me. It is so extremely scary. I hate driving more than anything else in this universe.
BUT, I have to take my test this week or else my mother won't let me go to music fest. That would seriously be THE WORST punishment in the world. But, taking the drivers' test seems like a pretty bad punishment, too.
That is honestly all I dreamed about last night, and let me tell you, every time I took the test in my dreams last night, I did NOT do a good job.

I'm really nervous and I'm not gonna apologize for that.

Uhhh, Yeah...

I wish that I was this good...they're amazing! Wowza! I found this video on ruthie.von's lovely blog, who found it on Meg's blog, who...I think found it on Facebook. Anywho, none of that was super important...but, watch this video. It's incredible! You'll probably really regret it if you don't watch this video right now.
