The Jalonaraptor Exposed

There are three ways to protect yourself against a Jalonaraptor.
1. Hand sanitizer-prevents bites
2. Tickle him
3. Set a Macall against him.

Be ye warned:
Sudden movements trigger the Jalonaraptor; he most commonly comes out at night and most importantly you must beware his sharp teeth.

Unfortunately I had an encounter with said Jalonaraptor. I was just bringing some lotion to my dear sister when he attacked. There was a large amount of gnashing of teeth and a hideously loud war cry. I knew I had to think quick. Still not knowing the best way to counter this beast I went for his neck, leading to a sharp pain in my forearm. I knew the venom (which I later found out was just saliva) was trying to find its way in. This clash of powers carried its way to the family room, legs were kicking, jaws were snapping, it was a battle to be witnessed. After much time and wounds I had the advantage. He was screeching looking for a way to escape. There was an unexpected calm as the transformation before the tree occurred. The cruel episode was over, peace was restored for a short time. He is still out there sometimes just a howl or a quick nip can be experienced. He is patiently waited for a time to strike. . .

Cell phones do not have hips

This week has absolutely been an odd one, for lack of a better word. 
Sometimes you just need to stop. 
Remember what is important.
Remember what you are aiming for. 
Remember what is waiting. 
Remember what is good. 
Just sit there and remember. 
Enjoy what you have. 
It is life.
It is wonderful. 
Don't let it waste away for naught.

I didn't think that I would miss Quincie this much. Sure I still see her but now it is seventeen minutes instead of seventeen steps away from me. Basically I miss my sister. I miss how we were book club nerds together. I miss how she was my friend when I thought that no one else was. How she understands my need to consume books. She knows my unpredictability. She is my best friend.  We definitely had our share of fights but the good memories far out  weigh anything else. I miss having our late night chats or going crazy playing password. Watching Castle together. I love her and I know that she actually reads this obscure blog. So this is sort of like a shout out with a message. If that even makes sense. Anyways, I love my sister!

Recently it was one of my best friends birthday. I had the opportunity to spend the majority of it with her  and it was absolutely the best, it reminded me of all the good times that we've had and why we were such good friends. As I get older and I get busier I lose track of friends and forget how amazing some people are. Samantha's birthday came at the perfect time is was nice to get back to simpler times and remember good memories (and no this is not an obituary as my brother thinks she is still alive and well). She is such an inspiration to me and has influenced my life and me for the better. I can't wait to make even more crazy fun memories with her.

73401, 278, 15!

I have found a new love. It is a perfect match. I spend as much time as I can with him. We are completely honest and true. Sure we have our ups and downs, but on days like today I am overjoyed! Meet my new "boyfriend" as my family jokes. 
Yes, it really is Tetris the game.
I am addicted to this game! I found it on my "new" phone and I play it all day everyday! I have become even more anti-social because of it (which is saying something, I was already in a downhill slide). And today I finally beat my high score. Yes the title of the post is all numbers related to Tetris, those are the numbers of my latest successful game I played. Seventy three thousand four hundred one points. Which equates to a well played two hundred seventy eight lines. As well as getting up to level fifteen. I was so happy I almost screamed (which is sad because I was at mutual surrounded by people, while I was on my phone). I love this game although it is very old school it is soo much fun. This summer my Dad just joked is my Tetris summer, I say what a good use of my last real summer.

Yet another one for good old Yearbook. Deadline 2

Happy Father's Day! There are so many men in my life that have influenced my life for the better and seeing as it is Father's Day I figure today is a good day to share my appreciation for them.

To start off my amazing guy friends. They are just so great. They really are. I love and appreciate them so much. For how wonderful they are, I am not even half the friend they deserve.

My cousins. They are my best friends ever. They are so funny and awesome.

Next off, my amazing Uncles! They are absolutely wonderful all in their own way! I am so glad that I am part of their family and that we are close so that I know them as well as I do. I know that I can always count on them, pretty much I love them all.

My grandfather's! Even though I didn't get the chance to know my Grandpa Yorgason that well everything that I do remember is just great. He was always so sweet I have so many great memories and I can't wait to get to know him better! And my Grandpa Weight he is such a go-getter (it is so inspiring) he is so supportive of everything is grandchildren do! I love them both and am filled with gratitude for everything they have done for me.

My Dad, Quincie, Jonah, Olivia and Chloe
coming to support me at a ballroom competition.
 And last but not least, the man of the hour, my father. He is honestly an amazing person. He is so protective of his family, he is so much fun to play with, he is so funny, and someone with great insight to talk with. He is so giving of himself in every way. He will do everything he can for the people he loves. He always teases us and even though we all act annoyed we know it shows that he loves us. He can always take our teasing as well, including soap fights, water fights, fights using beans. It is always so funny! I have so many wonderful memories of him. All in all I love him and am grateful that he is my father.

I am just so grateful for all the men in my life and I love them so much! And I am grateful so grateful for how they have all influenced my life for the better. Happy Father's Day!

This one is for Yearbook.

So this Saturday I had my first boating trip of the season! And it was absolutely great mostly because I went with some of my favorite people in the world! The lake was so full due to all of the run off, it was starting to flood some of the parking so that was an exciting twist. As well as all of the obstacles we went through. Including not limited to the tube blowing out of the boat on to the road on our way. Once getting to the lake not actually having the tube. And sitting in the dock for hours. But even still is was a blast!

The funnest group ever; Shannon, Lyd, Lauren, Em, Me and Quincie!
*Chloe and My dad are missing, they also went on the expedition. 

This is Quincie, Chloe, Lydia and Shannon (from left to right by heads)

The same group as above leaning to the right.
Becoming one with the tube.

Our wonderful driver, my father. 
He was so great, the absolute best dad in the world, 
he went all the way back to the shop so that we could tube!

 Lauren, Shannon, Lydia and Quincie.
Shannon did not fare so well on the back. 

Overall this was such a fun boating trip. Definitely a good way to start off. Not only was it fun sport also great atmosphere and conversation. I can't wait till we go again!

*Note I took the pictures that I am not in.

First Post!! This is for Yearbook-Deadline 1

After much effort I am publishing my first blog post! And it is about me.

 My name that I am most commonly known by is Macall Weight or by others Gretch-Bertha. I absolutely love to spend time with my crazy family. They are just so fun and hilarious they can always make me laugh with out fail. Even when I am in the rottenest of moods. 

Me. In Cedar City about to go for a nice swim. 

Alright so here is how things are going. Picture wise not so great. I'm still learning how to use my mothers computer which is the data base for all of our pictures. Yet I'm not having much luck, as you could probably guess by this very out-dated and unflattering picture. The only reason it is actually staying put is because I find it funny and to prove my desperation. The plan of action? Well I will post the rest of the text and then tomorrow with the picture-keeper (aka my brother) I will post the other pictures. 

Yet onward with my introduction. I love to be outdoors! Especially boating and swimming. Yet my personality is quite versatile luckily so I appreciate a nice day inside reading a book or playing board games! 

I am most often found asleep but in my attempt to be proactive this summer i have set two major goals. These being to actually learn how to bake and cook, become better at the piano and to be more effective in keeping a journal/scrapbook (so to speak). This way the time i spend will be beneficial to me instead of just wasting away my days watching shows I don't even like. 

And there is a brief description that will soon be followed by pictures.
