Osama News.

Photo Via: CNN Website

As you more than likely already know Osama Bin Laden was been pronounced dead yesterday. After searching for him for nearly 10 years, the US was finally able to pin point his whereabouts and put the chase to rest. It is a great defeat for America, and I am so happy and proud to be an American. My thank you goes out to every man and woman serving in the military, thank you.

I did turn on the news and watch everything go down live, but it was far more entertaining to see what everyone was posting via internet (Facebook, Twitter). Here are some of the post I saw that gave me a chuckle. I know this is a serious, historical moment in the world, but these post did lighten the mood a bit:

“The longest game of hide and go seek just ended.”

“Knock Knock. Who’s there? Not Bin Laden.”

“So how long before they make a movie outta this?”

“One day my news feed is blowin up with pictures of a double rainbow, now Bin Laden’s death. You can always count on facebook to update you on the finest things in life.”

“The awkward thing about Osama is that nobody is telling you that Dora The Explorer was the one who finally found him…”

“Osama Bin Laden will join Anne Frank and Waldo as the only members of the Hide and Seek Hall Of Fame.”

“Obama is dead!”

“(614): We just shotgunned beers for America”

“I need an American flag T shirt to wear tomorrow. The jorts might also come out”

“America proves yet again that missiles attached to unmanned aircraft guided by satellites and controlled by people a thousand miles away > dudes with AK-47s in caves”

“If Obama is 55 minutes late in addressing the entire nation, can I be 55 minutes late to my class tomorrow?”

“Somethings wrong, I hold my head, Osama gone, that nigga dead *Kanye West voice*”

“Someone got that 5 kill streak”

“Osama’s dead? Shot timeeee”

“May 1, the newest holiday?”

“Things on TV right now: Army Wives, Major Payne, Ax Men, Bad Boys, and Top Gun. You couldn’t plan a more American night if you tried.”

“Just say it Barack. ‘America, fuck yeah.'”

Facebook Hiatus.

Photo Via: Facebook Homepage

It official, I deleted my Facebook (temporarily of course). My heart sped up as I was filling out the questionnaire of reasons why. Then right before you finalize the deactivation they try to sweep you back in. At the top of the page, are photos of friends on your Facebook. Below each one it says _Name_ will miss you. Really? If the people on my Facebook where my true friends in the first place then they know plenty of other ways how to get ahold of me. I continued on with the process and eliminated my profile for the time being. I have no idea when I will activate my page again, but the time will come. I can tell you this though, it has been the biggest relief off of my chest. I don’t have to worry about getting on and checking. I no longer catch myself creeping on there for hours at a time (come on admit it, we all creep). Facebook is one of the biggest procrastinating engines ever invented via internet. It also houses most drama, gossip, and God knows what else on the site. If there was anything you needed to know about someone, you go on Facebook. If there is someone you just met, and you look to get a further connection with them, you turn to Facebook. It is almost pathetic that the world has turned into this. I mean, before I deleted it I was receiving birthday parties, graduation parties, and even wedding invites. Doesn’t anyone like face to face contact anymore?

I will not act like I was never on Facebook, because I was. I searched around page to page probably more than the average person, because lets face it, in college you have a ton of spare time on your hands. Also, if I ever heard something back home, all you have to do is sign into your page and check it out. Everyone posts practically everything about their lives on Facebook (well, almost everyone). The fact of the matter is, however, is that I don’t miss Facebook at all. I love not being on there on a(n) (almost) daily basis. I now can proudly say I am not as distracted from my studies, and now I get same amount of work done in half the time. I am enjoying my brief hiatus from Facebook.

However, the one downside of not having it. The birthday calendar. That was the one thing I miss.

She has defiantly seen me at my worst moments, and has been with me at my best. We might be hundreds of miles apart at college, but we still talk on a regular basis. She has been a great friend through all of the years.

 

Day Three

A PICTURE OF THE CAST OF YOUR FAVORITE SHOW
Criminal Minds is my favorite show hands down.

 

Day Four

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU WISH YOU COULD FORGET
The day I lost my grandma. Its been almost a year, and I still feel like she is not gone, although I know it is true. Nothing is the same.

 

Day Five

A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY
Panama City Beach for my senior spring break trip. It was the best time of my life. I would do it again in a heart beat. The song If I Could Do It Again by Cory Smith is practically our story.

 

Day Six

A PICTURE OF A PERSON YOU’D LOVE TO TRADE PLACES WITH FOR A DAY
I love Sandra Bullock. I admire her to the extreme. She is one of the smartest, and strongest women in the movie business today. It is hard to find a celebrity that can be suitable for a role model. Plus, if I traded places with her, I could have access to Ryan Reynolds.

 

Day Seven

A PICTURE OF YOUR MOST TREASURED ITEM
I love my Mac. I hardly let anyone on it, and I must always be present. It is my pride and joy, defiantly the best gift I ever received. I treat it as if it was my child, and I even named it. His name is Sid because he is sleek and sophisticated.

 

Day Eight

A PICTURE THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH
I laugh every time I go through these pictures on my computer. They are great, and every single one makes me laugh harder and harder. I love these girls.

 

Day Nine

A PICTURE OF THE PERSON THAT HAS GOTTEN YOU THROUGH THE MOST
This is an old picture, but I love it. Lissa has defiantly gotten me through a lot, maybe its because we both have went through it together. She is always there when I need her. She has been my best friend for years now. We have always gone to different schools, but we make it work. This girl will be in my wedding one day. I love her, even when she has her “master” moments.

 

Day Ten

A PICTURE OF THE PERSON YOU DO THE SILLIEST THINGS WITH
My friends. My girls. Each an every single one of them. We are all crazy, and have the best memories. I love them.

 

Day Eleven

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU HATE
I hate tea. There is nothing I like about it. It is not just sweet tea either, any tea, any flavor.

 

Day Twelve

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU LOVE
My family. I love them all. This picture does not do us justice, there are so many of us. They are my rock, and I know that they will support me in anything I will face in my life. My family is great, and I would not have it any other way.

 

Day Thirteen

A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE BAND OR ARTIST
I love so many bands and artist. I listen to all kinds of music, all genres. I chose a picture of Mayday Parade because I do love them, all of their songs. However, some of my other favorites are Streamline, Boyce Avenue, Trey Songz, Sugarland, and so much more.

 

Day Fourteen

A PICTURE OF SOMEONE YOU COULD NEVER IMAGINE YOUR LIFE WITHOUT
My brothers. I love them with everything I have. We went through our typical years of hating one another, but just as we were told, we grew up and all get along now. I would die if anything happened to them. We always have a great time when we are together. I am so thankful for how close we are, and I am proud to say that you will not find any siblings like us.

 

Day Fifteen

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE
I want to be able to repay my parents for everything they have done for me. They have helped me through so much of my life. They have worked so hard in raising my brothers and I. I want to be able to show them how much they mean to me. They deserve it.

 

Day Sixteen

A PICTURE OF SOMEONE WHO INSPIRES YOU
I love my grandpa. This is a picture of him and I years ago when I was a baby. He is such a huge part of my life. He is the smartest person I know, and has the biggest heart. He is the exact person that would take the shirt off of his back for another person. His door is always open for a visit. He is a great person, inside and out. I am so happy that I have grown so close to him.

 

Day Seventeen

A PICTURE OF SOMEONE THAT HAS MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE RECENTLY
Jake, my boyfriend. I have know Jake for years, but never was I as close to him as I am now. He has taught me so much about life, love, and about myself. He has proven to me how strong I truly am. He makes me laugh like no one else. He has become such a huge part of my life, that he will always been a huge part of me where ever life decides to take us.

 

Day Eighteen

A PICTURE OF YOUR BIGGEST INSECURITY
Maybe just as every woman, my weight. It has always been an insecurity of mine, and probably always will be.

 

Day Nineteen

A PICTURE OF YOU WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE
Obviously I am a looker. I was probably the most easy-going baby ever. Oh, and I loved that car.

 

Day Twenty

A PICTURE OF SOMEWHERE YOU’D LOVE TO TRAVEL
Ireland. I would love to go there.

 

Day Twenty-One

A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE NIGHT
For some reason I do not have any pictures from any my favorite nights: Miami Light or Panama. Then I found this picture, and I do have to say this is up there with my favorite nights. We slept out on a trampoline in the middle of the summer, oh I miss the old days.

 

Day Twenty-Two

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU WISH YOU WERE BETTER AT
Memorizing. It takes me a lot of going over and over in order to make something stick. I just wish I was like many others who can look at it once, or even two times and know it. That would make my life so much easier.

 

Day Twenty-Three

A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE BOOK
Im not a big reader, quite frankly because I am so busy, but I loved this book. Any by Jodi Picoult is great.

 

Day Twenty-Four

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU WISH YOU COULD CHANGE
My senior year of soccer. We had some issues, that I wish were smashed first thing. Without those I believe that we would of gone so far, but like I said we had our drawbacks. If I could go back and change all of that I would in a heartbeat. I loved high school soccer, and my senior year let me down, let me down bad.

 

Day Twenty-Five

A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE DAY
Spring break in Panama. This day was wonderful and terrible all the same. We met the Real World Cast, which was a huge highlight of my trip. This day was just great.

 

Day Twenty-Six

A PICTURE THAT MEANS A LOT TO YOU
This is a picture of me and my Mammaw right after I was born. The only picture I have of it is a polaroid. If anything happened to the original I would be devastated.

 

Day Twenty-Seven

A PICTURE OF YOURSELF AND A FAMILY MEMBER
A picture of me and my little cousin Maddy. She the youngest of all of us cousins. She is precious.

 

Day Twenty-Eight

A PICTURE OF SOMETHING YOU ARE AFRAID OF
I am afraid of lots of things: spiders, the dark, and death. I could not find a picture of the other two, so I went with spiders. I hate them so much I couldn’t even put a picture of a real one on here, they make me sick.

 

Day Twenty-Nine

A PICTURE THAT MAKES YOU SMILE
I love my brothers and this picture. This pretty much sums up how we act. They are the best siblings I could ask for.

 

Day Thirty

A PICTURE OF SOMEONE YOU MISS
I did not think it would be fair if I chose one person that I miss, because there are a lot of people out these I miss. For one, my Mammaw and Grandmas P. I do not have a picture of Grandma P, but I miss that woman with everything. Both lived a complete happy life, but no matter how old they are, it is just as hard. Then comes Steph, Shane, and Rachel. They has so much life to live, and their time was cut short, and I think that is what hurts the most. I still think about all of them every single day. At times I wonder where they would be if what happened, never happened. They were all great people, with great hearts. And miss more than words can describe.
