Disaster Movie

On Friday I decided I wanted to watch a low budget/light-hearted comedy. That only left me with one option: Disaster Movie. The movie originally came out in 2008 but hey, better late than never, right!? Let me just say, this may have been the worst movie ever imaginable. The acting was horrible, nothing was funny, and nothing in it was believable.

The movie starred Matt Lanter, from 90210, as a guy who is trying to save the world from ending but encounters celebrities in the process. Kim Kardashian was also shockingly in the movie and was a main character until she died halfway through the movie from an asteroid falling on her. I didn’t even know she was in it until after I started watching so that was a pleasant surprise. But after she died, I kind of lost interest.

At the end he eventually saves the world and they all live happily ever after… Except for Kim unfortunately.

Celebrity Follow

Last week I was minding my own business on Twitter when all of a sudden I saw that Teresa Giudice, one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was following me! She is the one that is famous for flipping the table in a fight. And of course this makes her my favorite of the housewives. She was also on this season of Celebrity Apprentice.

I’ve only been on Twitter for a couple of weeks and I already have a celebrity following me! Pretty soon I’ll be followed by the god of all New Jersey celebrities: Snooki! In honor of my new follow, I was going to watch the new episode of NJ Housewives but tonight is the new season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians so I’ll have to record it and watch it tomorrow!

She officially follows me!

The Next Tim Tebow

Once again I had a blast at my volunteer at the Kaleidoscope Youth Center. After I helped the kids with their homework, everyone was allowed to play outside. Since I was the oldest, all the kids wanted me to play football with them so I reluctantly agreed. I should probably remind you of the fact that I have no idea how to even play the game!

Needless to sayI was appointed quarterback and  I was the best player. That was probably because I was playing against a bunch of 7 year olds! But still, I was so good I’m basically the next Tim Tebow.

After getting chased around by a bunch of kids, they all decided that they wanted to run and play with their kites they made during crafts. Of course I had to run with them and I had a fun time doing so! I had so much fun that they even inspired me to want to have about 7 kids so I can start my own Kardashian Klan!

Some of the kids I work with flying their kites!

Instagram Madness

I just so happened to be creeping on Kim Kardashian’s Twitter the other day and she recommended this site called Instagram. I decided to try it out and I’m OBSESSED! It is a site that allows you to edit photos and add effects to make them really cool. I’m currently addicted to it and have edited all the photos in my phone. I’m basically the next Annie Leibovitz.

While I’ve been obsessing over Instagram, I’ve also been trying to kick off another addiction. Starbucks. I had Starbucks every day last week and have been trying to ween myself off. I made it through today without it and the headaches have been horrific! But, it’s nothing a couple of Aspirin can’t fix! I’ve been going strong for three days now so hopefully I’ll be off of it for good!

Here's a cool Instagram photo I made! I feel so professional!

 

 

The Vow

Yesterday my friend Angela from high school surprised me and came to visit Indy with her family. First we all went to the mall and shopped for a couple of hours and then we went to P.F. Chang’s and ate. I had something called Buddha’s Feast and it was delicious!

After dinner we went to see The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. Overall it was kind of a blah movie. I really didn’t know what emotion to have leaving the theatre. Everything happened so fast that it was hard to develop an emotional attachment to the characters so when they broke up, I kind of didn’t care. The acting in the movie wasn’t as bad as everyone made it out to be but I can say it just wasn’t believable.

I’d recommend it to people who enjoy really sappy love stories but other than that on a scale from 1-10 on how much I liked it, I’d give it a 5 just because I didn’t necessarily enjoy it but I didn’t hate it either. I think I was thrown off by the fact that Rachel McAdams had dark hair in the movie and was distracted by that the whole time.

Here’s the trailer for the movie.

How I almost Met Kim Kardashian

On Thursday, after Bob Costas‘ show was done taping, I happened to walk by St Elmo Steakhouse to see a huge crowd in front with a barricade. Of course I had to see what was going on and went over and made my way to the front of the crowd. After asking what was going on, I was informed that Kim Kardashian, the Manning brothers, Adam Sandler, and Troy Aikman were eating inside and that everyone was waiting to get a picture.

Being the Kardashian fan I am, I excitedly waited and had my camera in hand ready to snap a shot! Hours went by until Troy Aikman left with his entourage of friends. Then the Giants coach left with his posse  as well. This made me really excited since there was proof that actual important people were eating there!

A couple hours later, the owner came out to inform the crowd that all the celebrities that were once inside had already gone out of the back door directly to their cars and that Sandler was the only one left inside and he would do the same. Although I was disappointed that I missed Kim’s departure, I was able to swing by the mall right before closing to get some new clothes! So the whole night wasn’t lost! And besides, how many people can say they were within feet of a Kardashian!?

A poorly photoshopped photo of my head on Kim's wedding photo! Creepy? Yes. Necessary? Maybe.

Super Bowl Mania!

I was able to go downtown to see all of the Super Bowl setups and stages and it was amazing! I saw so many NF stars, incuding Jason Taylor and Robert Kraft, who owns the Patriots! I also almost saw Kim Kardashian, the Mannings, and Adam Sandler, which will be another post in itself! And yes, you read that correctly, I almost met Kim!

I’m actually not that big of a football fan so I’m only watching because of Madonna performing at halftime. She’s supposed to be putting on “the performance of a lifetime” so hopefully she won’t disappoint! Instead of choosing a team, whenever someone asks who I want to win, I just say the Colts and pretend as though I’m serious! It’s fun to see all the weird faces I get!

After Madonna’s performance I’ll probably go to bed and wake up to see who won! I can never patiently wait and watch a game. And since the game this year is supposed to be 3 hours long, I’ll probably do homework during the game too!

To see if I’m right, I’m going to predict that the Giants will win 23-17 over the Patriots. I don’t really care who wins and I just randomly picked a score so it’ll be even greater if I’m right!

The Super Bowl sign downtown!

Jimmy Loves Butler

Last night Jimmy Fallon held a show on campus at Clowes Hall and it seems like everyone went but me! I had class when tickets were being sold so I couldn’t buy tickets so I resorted to trying to win the random Twitter contests to win tickets. Of course I didn’t win and spent the night doing homework. Hey, at least I got the majority of my assignments for this week done!

During the time of Jimmy’s performance, there was not a single person in the hallway or lounge so I decided to Skype my friend Katie from high school to keep me company until everyone got back from the show. Of course it is impossible to keep up a 2 hour long Skype conversation so I ended up working out (shocking, I know) until the big season finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. It was the big episode where she announces she wants a divorce and it was the best episode EVAR! There was so much drama, crying, and excitement!

Needless to say I ended up having a fun night trying to find random things to do to fill my time and it was nice to finally have a relaxed Sunday evening without stressing about doing all my assignments at the last minute!

This is my friend Taylor and I after our Collegian meeting last week. I was evidently excited for some reason!

The Social Network

I have developed a weird obsession with short films recently, which inspired a big decision in my life. My favorite short film so far is called “Some Boys Don’t Leave,” with the “boy” being portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg, who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the movie “The Social Network.” I’ve never seen the Social Network but I looked up clips online and I feel like I would enjoy it!

After looking up that he was in The Social Network, I was inspired to make a Facebook and join the rest of humanity online.  I’m already obsessed with it and I’m pretty sure I’ll keep it this time instead of deleting it like I always do! Since I’m in this new social networking phase, I also created a new Twitter account. I currently have 74 followers which BASICALLY means I’m the next Kim Kardashian , who has almost 13 million followers but that’s just a minor detail!

I’m thinking of making a Tumblr account as well. Pretty soon I’ll be on EVERY social networking site! Who knows, maybe I’ll go back to my old Myspace! JUST KIDDING!

I needed a chair to sit in the press area at the women's basketball game and of course the one I got broke in half!

Whomp Whomp

Before break started, I had a schedule of doing at least one assignment a day to get it over with. But of course that hasn’t gone as planned! To counter my lack of enthusiasm towards doing homework, I’m going to go to the library or Starbucks tomorrow to get started! Hopefully I will be able to get most of it done and not get too distracted!

Last night I went to Olive Garden with my friend Angela and her family. It was really nice to catch up and eat some good food! I am boring and just ordered soup and salad while everyone else got the cheesiest/biggest things ever! It was definitely a big contrast.

After dinner, I went home to watch Dancing with the Stars. I’m a huge Kardashian fan so of course I want Rob to win! He got the highest score of the night and his family was telling all of their Twitter followers to vote for him so I think he’ll be able to pull through. I also like his opponents so I won’t be too devastated if he loses. I made sure to vote so he better win!!

Here is Rob’s performance last night that got him a perfect score.
