my bff, jee-bee (g.b.)

if you know me pretty well, you know that i love Glenn Beck.
not because everything he says is completely correct and should be taken as ultimate truth, but because the man is hilarious---and he's right at least half the time(which is more than i can say for most other political spokespersons).
i listened to his speech on CPAC several days ago and here are a couple of the brilliant things he said:

"it is still morning in America. It just happens to be kind of a head-pounding-hung-over-vomiting-for-four-hours kind of morning in America. And it’s shaping up to be kind of a nasty day, but it’s still morning in America. Now the question is: what made us, you know, sit there at the john vomiting for four hours? What is it that has taken us onto this path? What are we suffering from? What is it that has caused the problem? And if you say Obama it’s too simple of an answer because it’s not Barack Obama" (ultimately he basically calls the progressive movement Satan and claims that it has brought us to this disaster time we're case you were wondering)

"Not everybody gets a trophy. What is the point of competing for a trophy if everyone gets a trophy? Please stop teaching my children that everyone will get a trophy just for participating. What is this, the Nobel Prize?" (let's just say barack and glenn are NOT bff's)

there's more stuff i can quote, but it kinda takes forever and i just want to publish this post.

anyway. glenn beck is my friend. that is all.

Love, krystal

i listened to commercials on the radio in spanish this morning. i could have changed the frequency..there was plenty of music available on other stations...but i preferred to listen to the spanish gibberish. or should i say spanglish gibberish.
it was actually kinda funny, and very obviously purposely spanglish, although that kinda defeats the purpose...anyway.
my first reaction was relief: that i could still understand every word. i've spoken spanish since i could form words, but i still get a little scared that having so many white friends is gonna affect my ability to speak my mother's tongue :). no offense to my white friends (who make up about 99% of them), i love you all very much. and either wouldn't be your fault.
my second reaction was: i feel so special listening to a different language, and i hope everyone around me recognizes my greatness.

i know, it sounds bad...but let's be honest, we do it all the time.
like when our professors state a question in class and we mutter the answer under our breath, knowing that 3 or 4 students will hear us and be in awe when it's the correct answer...
or when we predict what's coming up in a movie right before it's revealed to us (or even better, long before it becomes obvious)...
or when we flash our really difficult-looking textbooks to all the com majors in the library...
or when we blast spanish commercials so that all the cars around us become jealous that we can understand the words coming out of the speakers too quickly for them to comprehend...
or maybe that's just me.

naw, i don't believe it.

Love, krystal

el dia de san valentin

it's valentine's day.
i'm remembering my post from last year on this very same holiday...
good times.

i don't want to be that person: the one that writes blog entries that are only like 2 sentences long, but i didn't want to not post anything today, and i'm kinda running out of time so....
and happy valentine's day!

i hate resumes.
i have a hard enough time thinking of good things about myself, but to be told to frame my experiences in a positive way and to market myself...i can't imagine it.
which is probably not good for my future.
sad day.

on a completely different note...

i need some alone time. i've had a little bit of and there...but i need a long alone time. the way the semester is looking, however, it doesn't seem super probable.
i'm gonna be really tired, really soon.

but it's ok. i know God is faithful. and i trust that.

Love, krystal.

p.s. i can't wait to see my sister at the truth conference. i'm excited.
