Dear Humans, aliens, intelligent animals that can read, and robots

I am about to make a long journey in the direction of that way. It shall be dangerous because the highway if full of vengeful cowboys that seek to harm cars. I am not afraid for my safety but I do worry about No Name Panda. I might have to leave him in the arctic for safe keeping. However, I worry that leaving him would be cruel. I shall keep you posted on this long dangerous journey.

Love all and always,
Marie Elizabeth

The No Name Panda drama

Saturday, December 17, 2011

I was leaving Wisconsin. Not forever but for six weeks. But I was leaving. The cold killed my soul and I couldn't survive anymore. I packed up a bag of laundry to be done and a book bag for my adventure.

The next day I started looking for No Name Panda and he was no where to be found. I cleaned my entire dorm. Spotless. But No Name Panda was not to be found. So I packed my car and went forward looking for adventure. Yet, my mind could rest—where was No Name Panda.I started to become fearful. Did I leave him in a class, in a final, or at a study group? I drove away from Wisconsin with a heavy heart. Two hours later I make a stop in Illinois to wash clothing and bedding. All of the sudden out of my laundry bag pops No Named Panda.

Now I know I should punish No Name Panda for hiding from me. I was so worried. But I can't. I am so happy to see him that I am rewarding him by taking him to Florida with me.

 red panda went to my final with me

 I kissed red panda

 red panda looked into my eyes and I knew it was love


Tuesday, December 13, 2011

I have never been good with goodbyes. I believe that everywhere you go you leave a piece of yourself behind. I also believe when you meet people you give them a piece of you. So when you say goodbye to someone it is saying goodbye to yourself. Then if that person dies, so does a piece of yourself.

Recently I lost a family member... so I have been a bit sad. Crying without the prompt of a duracell commercial. Just a little.

But I'm not sure how to really process this. I want to say there is a better place, but I don't believe it.

So All I really have to say is....

 goodbye, Aunt. I know with your death a piece of me dies, but I still carry a piece of you.

ME Watches a Movie

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Watching a movie, especially a new movie, is a event. It starts of with me going, no I don't want to watching something new, but I give in.


I sit and think, "this isn't every good."


I start falling into the trap of the movie and sit on the edge of me seat


I start to get excited and squeal


I stand up because the excitement in me is going to cause me to explode


standing up starts not working any more. If I do not do something, I am going to explode. So I start running


I freeze so I do not miss the ending


I say that movie is awesome. Normally followed by, I never want to see a movie with you again from whoever I was with.

My Paper on the Greek Economic Crisis

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

That's all the research I have to go through for the 10 page paper that I have to write. Tonight.

Let Us Break Up Again.

Do you remember my Break Up Letter?

I did it, I broke up with potatoes or should I say french fries.

However, I didn't last. I ran back to french fries, begging for the relationship again.While I keep a vegan diet, I would eat french fries just about every single day.

Recently, I admitted this relationship needed to come to an end, but I knew I needed help. I turned to yoga. I took a yoga detox class after my normal daily class. This meant, I did heated yoga non-stop for three hours. It kicked my butt. My legs hurt, my arms hurt, my abs hurt. I drank detox tea and sweat.

The result- I have been potato free for three whole days.

ME and the Archenemy

I hate winter. I. Hate. HATE. Winter. I hate how in Wisconsin it attacks fall. I hate kills the gorgeous autumn trees. I hate how it attacks me. I am a fighter. When I am attacked, I will always fight back. But how am I supposed to fight winter?

Winter attacks my nose, causing constant nose bleeds.
Winter attacks my throat, causing me to cough up some blood.
Winter attacks my hands, causing them to crack and bleed.
Basically, I am beaten badly by the evil season.

In a counter attack, I shall attack its holy holiday. Christmas. A holiday that I hate almost as much a the season.

This December, it is time to choose sides.

My first attack will be unleashing my dinosaurs.


Monday, October 24, 2011

It is 13 hours into my week and I have already had two complete break downs.

Talk to me and I will either cry or yell at you.

You have been warned.

(this notice is good until Saturday afternoon)

My Winter Uniform

Thursday, October 20, 2011

My existence is being threatened by the cold weather.  This is my effort to stay warm...

Ch-ch-ch changes

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

So I am getting Blonde. like Blonde Blonde. I capitalize Blonde because it is like some holy order that refuses to let you go. 

Currently I am about this blonde

However, I am thinking about adding some red in and going a little darker like  this photo

Then I am thinking about going lighter and chopping of my hair much like this photo

Here is a better photo of the hair

Or I could break the bonds of Blonde Hood and go brown like pig girl

Or ever darker yet...

Anyways, I have a week to decide....

It is that time of year

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

It is that time of year, when the leaves turn and the weather starts becoming chill. I start dragging out my sock monkey hat and snow boot and long to be cuddled up in my bed twenty four hours a day. To cox my self to get out of bed to eat and work, I must turn my thermostat way up. This causes my nose to go to forty degree outdoors to eighty degree indoors, which lead to nose bleeds.

So If you see me from now until May when WI warms up, I shall have a tissue nose.

Human Interactions

Monday, October 17, 2011

If there is one thing I fail at, it is digesting food (or so says the local hospital). If there is another thing I  fail at, it is social interactions.

For me social interactions always go like this:

Step One: See human I would like to interact with

Step Two: I announce, "Hey Human, I would like to interact with you"

Response: Human runs away.

So I try again.

Step One: See another human that I would like to interact with

Step Two: I ask, "How are you, Human?"

Response: Human responds.

Then I get excited, thinking I am doing this interacting thing right.

Problem: I forget that I need to keep saying someone normal things.

Answer One:  I walk away mid conversation

Answer Two: I start talking about how I am afraid that ninja penguins are going to eat my pajama pants.


Friday, October 14, 2011

As a writer, I tend to think my ideas are the best thing ever and if I don't write them down it would be a tragedy for the written word but yet again I have a new story idea and I shall proudly boast it is the greatest one yet. Confetti and cupcakes, ME P. S. That run on sentence was on purpose. I feel it reflects how I feel this.

Quote to live by

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them-that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. 

sushi sushi sushi

Yummmmmmm. Eating sushi for lunch. eating sushi for dinner. yummy yummy yummy.

It is just a normal Thursday in the world of ME

Locating ME

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

beep beep beep. You found me!

I know I have been MIA recently, but I have been getting lots of test down at the hospital. I also completed the Chicago marathon.

So no big deal.

But the future looks less hospitally and more fun, so I am excited to share that with you

Confetti  and cupcakes,

New Life Goal

Saturday, October 1, 2011

I decided that I need to learn how to run, skate, or bike super fast. So I could keep up with the cars on the road. Then I will be able to attach the push lights and reflectors to my ass and pretend to be a car.

I better start training right now.

A Post That Is New

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I believe that this is true, and it scares me. Sweatpants are ugly monstrous clothing. I don't own any. I do however own yoga pants. To prevent slipping into sweatpants land, I shall not even be dating. This shall be starting now.

Life Lesson # 1

Today I learned that if you use your only blanket as a cape and lose it, you will not have a blanket to sleep with.

Blood ( An Update About My Life)

Saturday, September 24, 2011

So... This week I was turned down to give blood; however, two days later the doctors were taking vials of blood from me. Apparently my blood might hold the secret of why I have been so sick. So.. now I just have to wait 6 days to get the results.


Wednesday, September 21, 2011

That's kind of my diet this week.


I might be getting worse.....

Some Vegan Stuff

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

So I have been keeping to my vegan diet and trying to cut out unnecessary chemicals from my life.

Let me tell you something.

Chemicals taste good.

This only has peanuts in it. It tastes like shit

This has a bunch of stuff that I cannot pronounce it in. It taste amazing. 

Needless to say, I am still eating chemicals. But don't be too disappointed in me. I am eating a balanced diet for what maybe the first time in my life. As a result I have put on a whole 15 pounds. Ha ha. opps. It's ok. I am now in the healthy BMI range. Plus I bet a good amount of that is muscle gained from marathon training and yoga.... 

I  might be the only person ever to gain weight by becoming vegan.

Memory Lane

Monday, September 19, 2011

I was reading the news, when an article about crows and their intelligence appeared. I was instantly reminded of high school when I wanted to get a tattoo saying "I'm a Crow" on my foot.

So here is the article for ya'll

Crows can use mirrors

So that is my moment of thinking about the stupid actions I was lucky enough not to do.

ME Update

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Six years ago, I was a young emo kid with 13 piercing. As of yesterday I only have one left. :/ growing up... It is scary.

I have spent my time watching Jeannie and I read about Victorian poverty. BUT I am ready to present you with some of current news.

Oprah Told Me Who I Am (and she was right)

Saturday, September 17, 2011

You are an adventurer: Action-oriented, curious, outgoing, and often technically gifted, you live for new experiences. You are drawn to risk-taking and aren't afraid to fail. Generally restless, you tend to job-hop or choose a field that offers constant novelty. If you had to name your favorite place, it might be the center of attention—you're a born entertainer, and can easily adapt to any audience. While you collect many acquaintances, you're less likely to develop deep, committed relationships.

What to watch out for: When you can't satisfy your thirst for variety and excitement, you may see yourself as trapped, which can lead to impulsive and self-destructive behavior—drinking, drugs, breaking off relationships, ditching financial responsibilities. Try to find value in some traditions; if you learn to appreciate repetitive experiences, you won't always feel the urge to bust free. And when a new opportunity thrills you, keep in mind that just because it sounds exciting, that doesn't mean it's good for you.

Looking ahead: Life will have meaning for you as long as you feel stimulated. That might mean chasing twisters, exploring the polar ice caps, getting a degree in dance therapy, or becoming an astronaut. It might also mean reading new books, attending workshops, or letting yourself get swept up in an intoxicating romance. As a risk-lover with a lot of energy, you're a natural entrepreneur. You'll be happiest if you change jobs every so often and travel extensively. Movement is what keeps you going.

Internet Life

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

In real life, I went from not sleeping for two weeks to being poisoned by raw lima beans and living in ashy air because of a forest fire.

Here what is going on in my online life. 

The Cancun Agreement has me upset because it is kind of a joke.

Keats' On The Sea

Saturday, September 10, 2011

It keeps eternal whisperings around
    Desolate shores, and with its mighty swell
    Gluts twice ten thousand Caverns, till the spell
Of Hecate leaves them their old shadowy sound.
Often 'tis in such gentle temper found,
    That scarcely will the very smallest shell
    Be moved for days from where it sometime fell.
When last the winds of Heaven were unbound.
Oh, ye! who have your eyeballs vexed and tired,
    Feast them upon the wideness of the Sea;
        Oh ye! whose ears are dinned with uproar rude,
    Or fed too much with cloying melody---
        Sit ye near some old Cavern's Mouth and brood,
Until ye start, as if the sea nymphs quired! 

Me Reports

I just read there is going to be a colony of people living on mars....... like in 20-30 years

Click here info

PETA wants them to be vegan...

It's something to think about. I don't think animals were meant to be on mars. We have seen problems before importing animals to where they don't belong. But I guess we are also shipping humans to where they don't belong.

The guy in charge putting the colony on mars said  "I'm a big fan of free choice for any future Martian colony. That said, it is likely that early Mars colonists would have a mostly vegetable diet, because of the energy and space needed to raise farm animals"

I am not sure how they plan to get the veggies. Grocery runs? Growing them? 

My final thought on this is - The 60's can finally be proud of us. 

ME Update

So what's with all the post recently? 

Answer One.
In the last two week I have slept less than five hours. Normally I sleep but every now and then catch this sleeplessness and I just can't sleep. When that happens I do this stuff. Then I search the internet. Finally I feel like I should talk to someone. But normal people sleep. So I blog and schedule the post to publish at a normal human time. Lately I don't care. I bet you can tell. I need sleep.

Answer Two.
Thesis and International Relations require a lot of reading about some not so nice stuff. To offset reading about starvation and protesting, I read an article about how the American crocodile has African DNA or the onion. Then I feel like I have to share my findings. So there ya go. Information for ya'll and I don't have to annoy my facebook friend.

I have to roll out of bed in less than four hours to go run 13 miles.

Here is some news for you...

I am in love

In case you haven't heard I am in love. It hit me suddenly today as I was looking up a model of a bat to draw and I found to Honduran white bat. It's a fruit bat and it makes tent out of heliconia leaves.

Guess where this bat lives?


Guess who already is going to Nicaragua in January?


So I am pretty excited that I might actually get to see one of these bats in person.

This is my I haven't slept in a week an a half post. So no effort. To prove my lack of effort. Here is a video

Now some pictures taken at the boston zoo with no information because thats how this post is gonna roll

This is an awesome bird

chill monkey

Its a hippopotamus with no noodles on its back, no noodles on its back. This pygmy hippo lacked noodles and didn't sing.

I can sing the chorus in German. Cause I rock


sleepy kitty

Ok. So I am quite sure that this is the stork that dropped me off when I was little and that is why I am so awesome. 

This is a bat. Bats are awesome. Bats are amazing. I could give you some facts why but that would break my no effort rule. But they are third on my reincarnation list.


Not sure what this is but I want to be its friend.

Pink Birds

And to end this effortless horrible post I will say I need sleep 

Baby It's Cold Outside

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Life if full of choices. Some are simple like what to eat for lunch. Some are more complicated like where to  move to begin your adult life. Believe it or not I am an adult. I firmly believed my life would be set in Boston working for a children publishing company. But as I sit in my room with the heat on as high as it will go, I am thinking maybe I am not supposed to be in the cold. It's only 60 degrees in Wisconsin, yet I am ready once again to hibernate. Maybe it's because I grew up on the edge of the South,  maybe it's because I spend a lot of time in Florida, or maybe I am just a wimp. I am sure as soon as it starts getting really cold I will toughen up.

Well I am going to celebrate national read a book day with the cure and my new book

I've been everywhere

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Jersey, Philly, and Baltimore. Then Naples, Boston, Chicago, and Milwaukee. In the last three weeks it feels like I have been living in airports. I never thought I would ever tire of traveling but I am kind of actually looking forward to staying in one place for awhile.

A New Way Saying Sorry

Friday, September 2, 2011

Apparently the new way of saying sorry is to offer a pickle. I don't know who decided giving a pickled cucumber is a good way to ask for forgiveness, but I have two pickles and I am a happy camper.

Yoga and Me

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

This week I went to yoga every single day.



What if I told you that every other day I went twice a day? 

Impressed now?

Thats what I have been doing this week. A whole lot of yoga. I love yoga. It stretches you out and relaxes you while working out your ENTIRE body. Plus it is basically grown up simon says. Unlike simon says, you always win. Which is good. Cause I ALWAYS lost at simon says. 

So I love yoga... Which leads to my story.

So my yoga instructor said you can not grow while rooted in fantasy. I am completely rooted in fantasy. In a single class, I imagined I was a summa wrestler, a bank robber, and a ninja. But the idea of not being able to grow in fantasy land won't leave me alone.... Is this why everyone thinks I am twelve?

What I Want To Be When I Grow Up

When I grow up, and being a little shy of 22 I am almost completely grown up, I want to be Jeannie. I want to wear harem pants and a little hat. I think I would be great at causing chaos by blinking.

Dear world, consider this my application.....

Santa Baby

Dear Santa,

I am not really a fan of your holiday, but I think you might be able to bride me with a certain gift.

Love Always,
