Confessions of a Facebook Creeper

I have a confession.. I Facebook creep like no other. It always catches me when I'm on like, page ten of your Ex-BF's sister's half brother's girlfriend's photo page and I'm like "Uh Skye, how do you know these people?"

The other thing I stalk: Pandora. Yepp, your Pandora playlists are not safe when I'm around, er.. when I'm on the internet. Pandora (the Internet Radio that has become the soundtrack of my day-to-day life) has this neat little feature where you can see your friends on Facebook who also use Pandora (Don't ask me how they know all this, that's a little too stalker, even for me). It shows you any stations they've made and listened to and song they've liked or bookmarked or whatever. And to me? It's super creepy of me to like looking at what music other people are listening to, but I. Love. It.

I feel like you can learn so much about a person just by what music they listen to. I remember sitting in class ages and ages ago when iPod's first got big (Yeah yeah yeah, it was only like 5 years. Whatever.) and looking through everyone else's trying to interpret what every single artist on there meant. But now! Now I don't even have to steal someone's iPod, I can just creep on their Pandora. I always think it's funny when the kid you thought had weird taste in music has super cool bands bookmarked or the girl you assumed only listened to Top 40 stuff has an amazing list of stations. It reminds me that I don't really know people as well as I think I do and I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, however cliche that sounds. And it's really weird to think that the music I listen to while sleeping and getting a shower and doing my random everyday stuff might be the same music other people are hearing as they go about their days. Oh dear, creeper status rising.. Can't stop.. Must go talk to real people and play with Charlotte Belle..AHH.

I think it's a disease, but I'm still looking into it. I'll let you know what the Dr. says when he calls me back. Now to go listen to more Pandora and keep breaking stereotypes down one friend's station at a time. XO.

Blurry Year & Photographs that Make Me Smile

So much has happened this year that I feel like it was all a blur and went so fast and I'm finally now just sitting back and taking it all in. Which is must needed, trust me.
 Things that keep me going (when the going gets a little crazy this time of year):

I feel like it's been so long since I've written that I've forgotten how to write for fun. My mind is hardwired now into MLA format and research papers, UGH. Time to rewire it for pretty words, inspiring photographs, and this dear little blog I've forgotten about. Some of my 110 in 2010 list is going to be crossed off in a minute, but I think I'm going to change my goals for next year to be 21 before 21, only because I can make more realistic goals and actually have the chance to cross them off. This years list was amazing, but a little too big for my britches. 

Now to look up pictures of wondrous things and listen to my new favorite Pandora station (Mumford & Sons PLUS! Florence + the Machine= SO good!) Au revoir until the next time I rediscover this my loves. XO.

P.S. All A's and B's in my classes this semester equals one more crossed off my list! Yay!
