The following images are not from a magazine, the internet or MTV. They were taken in a normal neighborhood, by a normal girl.

When I was in elementary school, I took music from Mrs. Sandquist.  She was.....unique.  She always out on the most.... extravagant concerts and recitals.  Ever.  Even though she is old as dirt and possible senile, she still dazzles the town every christmas season with a laser light display of decorations.

I also decided that this year I'm using my new years resolution as lent and giving up sugar, so these last few days i am getting in as much as I can.  Today I did great:  I ate mike and ikes, home made caramels AND turtles, junior caramels, and cookies. 

one good thing comes from being addicted to MTV...

There is this show on MTV called "True Life" which features people with something that they have to live with.  They use to have two episodes:  True Life: I have turrets, and True Life: I have OCD.  They were good, but they got old.  It was good, but it could have been ecpic.  that has all changed though;  now they seem to have a new episode every day!

The one airing today, december 26th, is True Life: Im Deaf, and just look at this precious little dream-boat.

His name is Christopher, he is 16 and lives in New Jersey.  He got a cochlear implant, so he can hear now--after not begin able to hear his whole life.  He is so cute, every time someone walks behind him, or sharpens their pencil he perks up and looks around--like a puppy.  He went to his girlfriends house and heard her say his name for the first time, his dad played guitar for him for the first time, he heard his mom say "I love you" for the first time.

I had the opportunity to work with a blind girl last winter for two weeks.  It was amazing to watch her go throughout her day.  I just think the kids like this who can have something like that in their life and still be so happy and strong deserve a shoutout.

move over Hayley Williams

Cassadee Pope is movin in on your turf!

Hey Monday is a cute little band from West Palm Beach Flordia.  They are known for their pop-punk songs such as "Homecoming" which is featured on the N between Moisha and Dawson's Creek.... I really need to start going t bed earlier. They seem legit, and wear cute clothes from Glamor kills, however, I can't shake the feeling I've seen this all before...

...Oh yea, 6 months ago when I was watching Paramore videos on youtube.

Well kudos on getting big for being exactly the same as the one other pop-punk band with a girl lead singer people care about.

I don't know where that came from....
