Team Edward, Team Jacob, Team CGI

I know I might be a little late in this, but I finally got to watch Twilight: New Moon. It wasn't the most mentally stimulating of movies, but holy crap:

Not my scan, but found via Flicker

Holy spam, though! Look at those abs! I had no idea such hotness existed in the world. After seeing New Moon & discovering who the hell Jacob Black was in the first place, there was no way I could even believe a Team Edward existed. That is, until I realized the power of Team CGI:

WTF?!! I know he's wearing a suit & not shirtless, but I'm pretty damn sure he's missing about 30 lbs of muscle. I knew it was too good to be true, and yeah, yeah I understand he worked out religiously for the role (and, ehem, PS burn tool, ehem), but still! I feel flaboozled! I feel baboozled!

Why let me believe this Taylor Lautner is the hunk hunk hunk top shit when he's just a little kid? He's too young and little for me to have jumped on his team.

...SO Team CGI wins it for me in this round. Damn you!

Things I Learned in the Last 4 Years

(Not necessarily in college) (Belated post-grad post)

1. Business in the front, party in the back.
Not necessarily the mullet, but as a state of mind. Get your shit done, and then you are free to enjoy what free time you’ve been left. Work hard, play harder.

2. The human body can do a lot, but its biggest obstacle is the mind.

3. Those who matter, don’t mind; those who mind - they really don’t matter.

4. The biggest barrier to doing something, is actually getting yourself to do it.
No one else is really watching you, no one else is really freaking out as much as you are about anything. Really. If you suck at something, trying not to suck is the first step to not sucking. My biggest step towards learning this was in soccer class. I’ve honestly only played as many times as I’ve gone to class. After a really rough day, when I was bruised and pissed, I realized that even people who know how to play suck ass. So I stopped giving a fuck, and just started doing whatever I felt, instinctively, like doing. I still suck, but not so hard anymore.

5. It’s easy to quit something, if you’ve never actually started it.
There are a lot of things this can mean, but what I mostly mean to say is: It’s easy not to be an alcoholic if you don’t start drinking all the time. Or, inversely: It’s hard not to be an alcoholic if you drink all the time.

6. When looking back on any period in one’s life, no one remembers the studying.

7. Some people don’t want to evolve, and some, can’t.
