Random fact #1

I sometimes measure myself through films and television shows. Please not misunderstand and assume that I think, “I will never be as strong/cool/successful as Scarlett O’Hara/Buffy/Carrie.”  No, no, no.  I hope I am not that transparent.
 

 

As a child, waiting for something, my mother told me that the wait was as long as an episode of Rugrats. While her genius parenting skills allowed me to understand time, it also transformed how I viewed time–a half hour was now an episode of Rugrats or Doug, two hours was the entire Snick line-up, and anything under three and a half hours was less than Titanic. Even years later, I do find myself subconsciously relating time doing something less entertaining (driving, working) to an amount of time I could spend watching a television show. (Of course, it can also come back to haunt me as I try to convince myself I don’t have time to exercise, then later realize that if I set aside just a little of my TV time to go to the gym…)

As the years have gone by, I have also find other ways to think of time. For example, I am as old as Dirty Dancing, Spaceballs, Adventures in Babysitting, and The Princess Bride.

Other ways to think about it? Popular was on while I was in jr high, preparing me for life in high school. Smallville has been on the entire time that I have been in high school and college, and now it seems that it will last longer than my academic career.

I figured this post would serve as a warning/insight into my thought process, in cause this blog seems a bit overridden with film and television references, it’s just who I am.

The end.

Of this post…not the blog 😉

Not eloping.

Now that my fiancé and I have finally settled on our basic wedding plans, it’s amazing to look back at how far we have come.
At one point, I believe early in the game, I suggested just running off and eloping.

However, my fiancé vetoed this idea pretty quickly because he wanted his family at the ceremony. From there, I spent years (we got engaged on June 4th, 2006), jumping around ideas of what, when, how big, and how much. Luckily, we came to an agreement earlier this year of what we really wanted, and started making deposits.

Now come October, this crazy couple will have their personal, simple, intimate, almost destination style wedding.

Introducing Ms Snowflake!

So you have stumbled onto this blog and imagine yourself in one of two categories–those who know me (friends, family, etc.) and those who don’t (“Who’s this beezy?”).

To all of you: Welcome. I plan on this being a place where I can write about my life, my wedding, and keep all the amazing things I have been finding online for years organized. If nothing else, check out the links that I have because those blogs rock a lot harder than mine.

As for me, I am a young woman on the verge of graduating college and getting married, leaving a very urban city and returning permanently to the suburbs of Northern California. But don’t worry, I’ll try to make it sound a heck of a lot more interesting than that.
