Facebook Status Ideas? (:

29 Sep

So, I discovered the other day that there are actually sites for people who aren’t creative enough to come up with their own facebook statuses: just pages and pages of ideas. All you have to do is copy and paste! But due to the fact that there are almost 9,000,000,000 pages (not literally, of course) I decided to go through a few and find the best. Your welcome, I know I make your life easier. (;

Here they are:

Look at things not as they are, but as they can be.

The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.

Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you’re beyond the need of God’s grace.

I love how, in scary movies, the person yells out, “Hello?” As if the bad guy is gonna be like, “Yeah, I’m in the kitchen! Want a sandwich?

I want to make a Facebook account and the name will be Nobody so when I see stupid crap people post, I can Like it. And it will say Nobody Likes This.

Facebook is like jail, you sit around and waste time, write on walls, and get poked by people you don’t know.

My mother never understood the irony in calling me a “son-of-a-bitch.”

I won’t take a bullet for anyone because if I have time to jump in front of a bullet…you have time to move.

I just read last year 4,153,237 ppl got married. I don’t want to start any trouble, but shouldn’t that be an even number?

Best way to get out of a text convo: “The message could not be delivered due to a temporary network setup error. Please try later. Error 2128-226110”

Look at your status. Now back to mine. Now back to yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn`t mine. But if you stopped posting about other things and made this your status, yours could be like mine. Look down. Back up. Where are you? ……You`re on Facebook, reading the status your status could be like! Anything is possible when your Facebook status looks like this one…

Mom look… mom…come on.. MOM hurry… MOM… you missed it.

Who else loves it when his little sister says, “Isn`t that the girl you`re always talking about?”

Teacher:”You failed the test.” Me:”You failed to educate.”

Teacher: Whoever answers my next question can go home. *Boy throws bag out the window*
Teacher: Who threw that? Boy: Me, I`m going home

Dear Mom,
how can you hear me mumble under my breath but you can’t hear me say
“What?!” multiple times when you scream my name?

LIKE IF: I play with my phone when I`m waiting for someone so I don`t look stupid

I hate when I miss a call by a few seconds, call the person back and they don`t answer.

Today, be a little bolder. Reach a little higher. Be a little kinder. Be a bigger dreamer.

if only life came with a ◄◄REW ► PLAY ▌▌PAUSE █▌STOP

When a scuba diver gets disoriented and lose his sense of direction, there’s only one rule to follow–his air bubbles. They don’t go sideways or down, always up, always the right direction. Same is true with my God, when I’m confused which way to go,
he always leads me to the right path…He’s my air bubble.

A Guide 2 Halloween Party Time

24 Sep

A Great Theme: Most people go with the classic “free-for-all”
concept at a Halloween party, if you come in a costume, you’ve done your job
right! But if you’re looking for a specific theme for your party, try one of
these

  1. Superheroes and Villains – this works great in
    pairs too, if you want. (i.e. superwoman &  super man; batman & joker)
  2. Horror Movie Halloween Party – come as a
    character from your favorite horror movie! Watch all the movies (have people
    bring their DVDs) or just the best clips from the movies
  3. Vampires Ball – Twilight, Vampire Diaries:
    vampires are popular. Why not make a party out of it???
  4. Mummy Masquerade – this one is quite funny
    actually! Seeing all your friends wrapped up isn’t an everyday thing!

Sweet Treats: every Halloween party needs great food to eat,
grab some friends and try these recipes for your party!

  1. Sugar cookies – take sugar cookie dough and use
    cookie cutters to make the shapes you want. When they’re done, grab some
    friends and decorate with frosting
  2. Witches hats – take some pre-made (or make them
    yourself) cookies with chocolate on the bottom, for example: Girl Scouts’ Samoa’s
    cookies, and use frosting to stick a Hershey Kiss to the top of each one. Complete
    the hat with a frosting ribbon
  3. Strawberry ghosts – take strawberries and dip
    them in white chocolate up to the stems, when they dry, use black frosting to
    make a ghost face on the upside down strawberry. Set a bunch of them on a
    platter for your guests!

Activities: So you have the costumes, you have the treats,
now what? Well, you need something to keep your guests entertained! Depending on
if you have a theme or not, there are a lot of options for this.

  1. Pumpkin Carving
  2. Watch Horror Movies
  3. Poker with Candy – instead of playing for money,
    play for candy!
  4. Haunted House – takes a lot of work, but if you’re
    willing to make it before, you can have your guests go through the haunted
    house
  5. Scary Story Telling
  6. Mummy Wrap – Have two teams and race to see
    which team can wrap all their members COMPLETELY with toilet paper first
  7. Scavenger Hunt in the Dark – if you’re having
    the party at night, before the party hide items (plastic skulls, bones, spiders
    from the Party store) in your back yard. Once it gets dark, have your guests
    team up to find the items.

Guide 2 Halloween: Costumes!

22 Sep

Hi! So since Halloween is coming up, thought I might make a Guide 2 Halloween(:

First categorie: Halloween Costume Ideas! So depending on whether you want to do a costume by yourself or with friends I have a couple ideas (and I tried to find good pictures, your welcome.)

By yourself:

Nerd – not many people do this anymore and you can really make it cute! I’m thinking a Katy-Perry-inspired look from her new song Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) There are tons of makeup tutorials on YouTube for this and you can look just like her!

Katy Perry Last Friday Night
Hippie – this is cute and inexpensive! All you need is some bright clothes, glitter, and maybe some paint! (: Get a bright neon shirt, and cut off one shoulder and put a tank top under it. Then, wear shorts with bright tights under it. And wear a headband around your head. Complete the look with converse shoes!

Grandma – this is so funny, especially if you’re a guy! But you have to go ALL OUT: wig, purse, your moms clothes! (kidding about your mom’s clothes of course!) And don’t forget the carpet bag and elderly cane to compete it!

Barbie – you probably want to be blonde for this but be a barbie! Really great!(:

All you need is some makeup, long blonde hair/wig, and HIGH heels and a cute outfit! If you really want to go all out, you can put a box on yourself!

iPhone – everyone does the rubix cube, but not everyone does an iPhone yet! Be the FIRST! (: And a little CARDBOARD IS ALL YOU NEED. Of course, if you’re artistic, you can paint the apps on. Or you can print and glue them on!

 You know that’s CUTE!:D

Cleopatra – Some gold jewelry, a white sheet, black eyeliner, and a black wig = set to go! EASY. CUTE. ORIGINAL.

 

GROUP COSTUME IDEAS:

skittles – all you need is black shorts and a colorful shirt with an S on it you can do this with like 10-15 friends

christmas characters – already in the christmas spirit???? Get a head start! Get your friends to join you and dress up as snowmen, elves, santa clauses, eskimos, reindeer, whatever floats your boat!(:

coloring crayons – again, all you need is colorful clothes that you can write CRAYOLA on! (: Cute and fun for 10 – 15 people

Cruella DeVil and her dalmations – original and really cute! You can get the cruella outfit and your friends can be the pups!(:

Happy Meal – one person could be each: Big Mac, Coke, fries, Milkshake, Chicken Nuggets, you can keep on going!

The Classic Americans – one person could be each: Hamburger/Cheeseburger/Hotdog, Ketchup, Mustard, Fries, Apple Pie! (:

Jersey Shore Gang – not a personal favorite, but everyone else seems to like it!

High School Musical Characters – If you’re guys and girls: Troy, Gabriella, Monique, Chad, etc.

Harry Potter Characters – I’ve never seen Harry Potter (I know, I know, everyone says I’m crazy!) But there are a bunch of characters to be together

Poker Hand – Have the a couple friends be the poker chips, a couple friends be the winning hand, and one friend could be the table???? haha

Red Neck Family – Ripped jeans, cowboy hats, country accents, all out! haha This is fun, but don’t offend anyone, so be careful!

Smurfs – If you want blue face paint, you could do long sleeve blue shirts and pants/tights and be great!

Olympic Athletes – swimmer: swim suit, swim cap, and goggles; basketball player: basketball uniform, medal, trophy; just keep on going!

Spongebob characters – people do spongebob SOMETIMES, but you never see the whole gang together!

 

Demi Lovato New Album

21 Sep

That’s right! Demi Lovato is back from rehab and ready to rock!(: The singer released her new album Unbroken Monday at midnight. The album, with songs featuring Jason Derulo and Dev, has a whole new feel to it. There is a wide range of music genres in these songs too.

She just seemed like the average tween popstar to me when she joined Disney in Camp Rock a couple years ago. But I took some time to listen to her album yesterday and she has some REALLY GREAT SONGS. She is an AMAZING singer with great vocal range, which I never noticed in her old songs. (And if you check some videos of her singing live, she really is that good, no editing) Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Who’s that boy? – Feat. Dev (I don’t know who that is but this song is good)
  2. Together – Feat. Jason Derulo (I think this song is more popular because of Jason Derulo, but not one of my personal favorites)
  3. Unbroken (the signature song, very cute!)
  4. Fix a Heart (has a bit of a Taylor Swift sound to it, I like it)
  5. For the Love of a Daughter (SO GOOD. Great vocal range, inspirational, sad lyrics!)
  6. In Real Life (Has an old-fashioned techno-pop feel; I kind of like it)

I’d definitely recommend you check out her new album and all the new songs!(:

Best Ways to Ace that TEST!

7 Sep

So with all the tests coming now that school has started back I decided it might be a good idea to make an entry about studying. (not the most interesting I know, but it has to get done!) Here are my ideas:

BASIC RULES OF STUDYING:

  • Turn off your iPod – you might be able to do your math homework while listening to Neon Trees, but studies show that even if you get the problem right, your mind doesn’t absorb as much when your music is blasting.
  • Put your phone away – yeah, I know: You can reply to the text message and then finish the math problem. Unfortunatley, your brain takes 20 MINUTES to get back in full focus after every text message you recieve. Do yourself a favor, put up your phone. You will finish faster and do better
  • Short periods of time – this requires some planning ahead but it is so. Much. Easier. I promise! Just study for five or ten minutes each day if you have a quiz next week. By next week you’ve studied over and hour and you ACTUALLY remember what you studied because you didn’t overdo it.

GOOD METHODS FOR STUDYING:

  • flashcards: always good because they’re small and you can carry them in your pocket to study on-the-go
  • quizlet.com: I heard this is good, I haven’t used it myself. But I would reccommend it because so many people give positive reviews
  • video chat: one of the more fun ways, but you have to stay on task! Get on video chat with a friend and study each night before a test. It’s more fun to have a partner!
  • study guide: this is boring but it works so well! Hand write a summary of your notes from class into a short study guide (2-3 pages at most; outline format suggested) Writing it will help you to remember it and then reading over it after will help so much!

OTHER SUGGESTIONS:

  • classical music? – come people say that they HAVE to have background noise. Since normal music can be a distraction, I recommend classical music. I know, for most people it’s not the coolest. But studies show it makes you smarter and helps when studying!
  • Figure out your learning style – visual, hands-on, listening, etc. use that to help you pick the best method of studying!

HOPE THIS HELPS.

1. You’re doing the best that you can – And that’s enough. It doesn’t matter where you’re going, or what to do next, but one thing is for sure, you’re doing your best.

2. You have a big heart – Never stop.

3. You’re so good at what you do – I don’t know what you do, but everyone is good at something! Keep working at it!

4. You inspire people – You might not know it, but there is someone out there who is amazed with you just being yourself!

5. You are loved – Doesn’t matter what you think. Cuz you are! Someone. Somewhere. YOU. ARE. L-O-V-E-D.

6. You’re not perfect – that’s okay. nobody is! That’s part of what makes you, you! You’re quirks and mistakes!

7. You’re beautiful! – I don’t care what you think because you are and even if you don’t believe it, someone else does!

8. Your opinion matters – no matter who tells you other wise. You matter and what you have to say matters!

Hope I brightened up your day 🙂
