...issues... and adventures!

I have a serious problem. Locking my keys in the car. Once while the car was actually running (see previous entry), and once when getting gas at the gas station. Yeah, I don't know how, it just happens. Salazar must think it's really funny (salazar is my car). There needs to be a support group for people like me.

My other addiction is making playlists. I do this so often it should be my major. First I put all of my music in playlists by where the band was from, then by the year it was relesased. More recently I made a playlist for Adventuring. I am especially proud of this one. It is 110 songs perfect for adventures on land, sea, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, Narnia, and space.

These two issues came together on Friday last week. I once again locked my keys in the car. Well done I know. Luckily the last time I was locked out, my mom brought the spare keys down, so they were at my apartment. So I walked up hill to my house (25 minute walk), only to realize that the keys to my apartment were on the key ring currently locked in the car. I rang the doorbell like 20 times, but no response. Rachel was in the library so I didn't want to bother her. I remembered one day in elementary school when my brother Jon and I were locked out of the house, and he broke in through the window. I had my playlist for adventuring on my ipod, and I was feeling brave. I'm not going to give more details on the said break in, in case a creeper is reading this and wants to break into my house. Needless to say, I used my great ingenuity that was spurred on by inspiring music to get into the apartment. Then I ran with the other keys to the car (7 minutes what what!)
So it's not that much of an adventure, but I felt like a spy or something, especially from my AWESOME playlist!

Needless to say, if you ever want to go on adventure, invite me! I'll bring the playlist!

My Halloween Costume is better than yours!

And this is why:
I am going as a

Here is the mask I made- not the best photo- but know it is much better in person.

And I'll have a swim cap such as this one:

And this shirt, for the people who may be confused as to what a Narwhal is. the fools.

And these pants- or similar ones:

And flippers such as these:

for those of you who are fools, and do not know what a Narwhal is:
And yes it is real! someday I'll meet a real one. It will be magical.

Narwhals and Unicorns are friends:

And so are Karyn and I!
