Happy Birthday to me

Well, I am officailly 22. I have been 22 for two days now. It doesn't really feel any different, but yet everytime I remember that I am 22 I get a little freaked out by it. It is just that when I was in middle school and high school 22 seemed like this far off place that was in adult world and that who I was going to be then is no one that I am now. Which I am not sad about at all, in fact I think I like this 22 year old more that I would like what my 12 year old self thought a 22 year old should be. But it does make me a little bit closer to having to make the tough decisions about my life and future. I am not even thinking about the long term, just the next few years, which I think is the scariest part. Especially since there aren't many people I can turn to for advice on what to do next because most people I know are sure of what they want to do. And my parents sort of help in just being supportive, but really they didn't have to go through what I am. I guess what I am hoping for is just some great advice, that one pearl of wisdom that will stick and guide me towards that decision. So if you've got it, let me know.

But for now I leave you with the most mature thing a 22 year old girl could do on her birthday...

Sports match-ups that are rocking my world

The first one being the obvious Bears vs. Colts in the Super Bowl in two weeks. But I must say that the Bears game just became sad in the fourth quarter. I mean obivously I am estatic that the Bears won, but 3 touchdowns in one quarter, when the score had been so close before, is just pathetic. It makes you wonder what happened to the Saints' defense.

(please note the similar fists of victory)

Though the second sports match up that I am exicted about is Andy Roddick vs. Mardy Fish in the Australian Open. Though as it has been proven in the past Roddick has beat his boy Fish a many a time, it is still quite impressive that Fish has made it this far since he isn't even seeded. I am also impressed with how well my boy is doing, its has been such a good thing for him to have Jimmy Connors as a coach.

Other than that my life itself has also been filled with sports, from bowling to basketball games. Though really there hasn't been any other sport in between. But I will leave you with pictures of our bowling score board. Please take note that my score gets progressively worse as the night goes on. Some might say it was my lack of stamina, though I have other theories.

*my apologies for the badly shrunken pictures, but I wanted to get them all on the same line

Oh, I'm ready for it, come on bring it

well, it has finally happened, I have seen the greatest movie of all time. That's right, I am talking about the ever humorous, ever scientifically inaccurate film of "Snakes on a Plane." I knew that the movie was going to be "bad," a bit campy and try and take itself too serious. But what I didn't expect was that it would just blow those expectations out of the water. It was all of that and so much more. I do not think I have laughed that hard at movie in quite a long time. It is definitely going to be a cult classic and not in the way Mel Brooks comedies are or even how Rocky Horrow is, but it has it own new level of cult-ness.

I already have the drinking game figured out. Everytime someone says "snakes" you drink. You could even spread it out to the phrase "snakes on a plane" and still find yourself pretty trashed by the end of the movie.

So do it, go out and rent. I am telling you that you won't be disappointed. And if you are well...then you must not have a good sense of humor

Let's take a walk down the road to Oscars 2007

So, while I was not able to watch the awards due to the fact that I had to do newspaper stuff. Here are some highlights that made my night (or technically morning, since I appear to be an insomniac right now):

America Ferrera, who is pretty much the coolest actress around, won for "Ugly Betty" (the show also won for best comedy). This is definitely a show that deserves to be around for a while.

Helen Mirren, won two, which is also great because she is just so amazing. I saw her in "The Queen" (she won one of her awards for it) and she did a fantastic job. It was an incredible movie
But the great news of the night:

"Grey's Anatomy" won for best drama. Oh man, I cannot wait until this week's episode. I really want Alex and Addison to get together. They are really cute right now. Though Ellen Pompeo looks very sickly in this picture.
For a complete list of award winners:

Da Bears!

I thought that I would start off my first post with something good:

The Bears won!!!

It was such an intense game, made more intense by the fact that we had to listen to it on the radio and only imagine how the plays looked. But still just as fun. It would be so awesome if the Bears made it to the Super Bowl, though we have to beat the Saints and I think that they are doing really good this season, but hope for the best.

And despite living in Seattle, I couldn't cheer for the Hawks today, it would just be the epitome of fair-weather fan-ship and I can't have that. You have to cheer for the team that helped you ring in your very first birthday right?

Go Bears!
