The People You Meet

I wasn't going to blog about this story, but I can't stop thinking about it. Its too weird & funny not to share.

And? Its a very fitting Halloween tale.

The other day I was at school in a particularly boring class. I always sit by the same boy in this class and we usually do a pretty good job and keeping each other entertained, but this particular day I guess we weren't doing it for each other because we both started talking to the guy that was on my other side.

At first it was just your typical small-talk. You know, how are you? Whats your name? Whats your major? All that.. 

Then we started talking about jobs.

Where do you work?

I replied - I don't have a job. My friend talked about his job for a second. Then this stranger told us about his job.

"I just work in my cult."

My friend and I both looked at this guy, puzzled. "Your cult?"

Guess what he said? Keep in mind he said this completely seriously...

"Yeah, I'm a vampire."

A vampire. Really? Wow...

Kind of ridiculously awesome, really.

Well, and just ridiculous. 

Apparently they do exist.

I don't know how I didn't see this, before, to be honest. He has fangs, yes, actual fangs and just looks...vampire-y, I guess. Perhaps I just never assumed/guessed he was a vampire because its not every day you meet one! Heck, I didn't know they existed! 

Bahahahahaha. Wow. 


We heard the news that our acquaintance was a vampire and we both knew we could NOT make eye contact with each other or we'd lose it in a laughing-fit. Did you know its really, really hard to keep your composure when a guy is telling you about his cult and the ways of Vampire-ism?

"Then my very un-shy friend asks, "So do you drink blood and stuff?"

The vampire then answered, again, dead serious, "We'll drink our own or each others but we're civil, we're not the kind that go out and attack people for blood."



I mean really, what do you say to that?

At least he wasn't one that attacked, I guess?

To say the least, I felt like I met Edward Cullen that day...I kept waiting {maybe slightly wishing, too} for him to tell me my blood smelled delicious and he wanted it, badly, and then he'd confess to me that he couldn't resist me, etc. 

Guys, he could have been my Edward...I could have been his Bella...Then I would have found a Jacob... 

It could have been cool. Like, real cool. But I guess my blood doesn't entice him enough for us to start living that twisted fairy-tale.

And there you have it.

I know a vampire.


My Momma's Cooler Than Yours

Last night while I was trying to fall asleep I texted my pretty mommy and asked her to tell me a story, so I could fall asleep...

This was the GENIUS story that awesome lady texted me back: {enjoy}

Once there was a slug.
He was very slow.
He wished he knew how to play the flugelhorn.
But he couldn't.
He didn't have lips.
He wished he could tap dance.
But he couldn't.
He didn't have feet.
He wished he could sculpt an amazing statue.
But he couldn't.
He didn't have hands.
He noticed he left behind a disgusting trail of slime.
He decided to start a disgusting slime trail collection.
If only he had a bottle to store it in.
But he didn't.
He was under a log.
And he had only traveled an inch since the sun came up.

Wishin' it was Thursday

Confession time: That whole nerd thing?

Yeah, didn't last. I don't even know if it lasted an hour, to be honest. Oops.

Anyway, I have midterms tomorrow. Well, technically, today. (its late) In six and a half hours.. Boo. Because I didn't magically transform into a schoolastic nerd like I really, really hoped I would, all day today was filled with cramming for those awful exams. And I really mean all day. I didn't even put make up on or get dressed, I was so devoted to school work. It is now 12:40am and my brain is fried. I cannot take one more schooly thing or I may explode. Because I've been such a good procrastinating student, I rewarded myself by allowing a quick blog post before I get back to that evil. 

It felt good.

Now, sadly, tis time to get back to studying and deciding if I should pull an all-nighter or not. 5 o'clock is right around the corner anyway, right?! Ugh...

Oh and please, please, please WISH ME LUCK! (: 

studyin'..oh my lanta..

Mr. Brandon Flowers {is hott}

Brandon Flowers is the lead singer for the band, The Killers, and he is a Mormon.

This is awesome. Go ahead and watch.


I can't sleep tonight. Again. [shock.] So how about another post? 

I went on a date tonight. A very fun date! My date, Trevor, and I doubled with my best friend Dani and her boyfriend, Dallin. For this date, we went to Thanksgiving Points little Halloween fest, called, Cornbelly's. 

don't let this happy corn-man fool you...its scary there.
This place wasn't messing around. They had something there for everyone. We'd initially gone thinking there was just one haunted corn maze you go through. Turns out there was much, much more. Normal corn mazes, a haunted one, haunted "creatures" you walk through, a clown house and some more, but I won't bore you with the details.
We were brave people and took on the scary ones. I think its safe to say we were very, very scared. Or Dani and I were, at least. Very. I don't know why people do that kind of stuff for fun. Crazies. I can think of a million more fun things to do than scare yourself silly. I am a screamer and I feel like thats almost all I did tonight. It didn't help that I was that "lucky" person that kept getting scary people up in my face! Jeepers.. 
Regardless of the crazy scariness I partook in, I had a fabulous time with those three amazing people and feel pretty proud of us for braving such scary places - and I'm glad Trev didn't seem to mind me sticking like glue to him anytime I was scared. We made some pretty good memories there, too (: I'd share...but I think in this case, what happened in the corn maze, stays in the corn maze! 

 trevor & myself
dani & chels

sorry, didn't take a picture of myself with dallin ;)

Um, ME TOO!!

And...This is the CUTEST picture on planet earth. So I had to blog about it so you all could see how darling it was, too. 

LOVE! Ps, I teared up a bit.

One Mans Trash...

My lovely mother has taken on the challenge of cleaning out our garage. In the process of doing so, she found this old treasure of mine...

So what is this old, dirty feeling, poorly cared for notebook filled with, might you ask?...

Orlando Bloom, duh!! 
I think back in the day I could have very well been his #1 fan. I was unhealthily obsessed with this gorgeous, gorgeous, freaking hot, beautiful, lovely, enchanting man. My room was (literally) covered in pictures of this handsome british fella. When I slowly was fading from my Orlando obsession (wish that never happened...i miss him) I took down all the pictures and taped them into this notebook, because of course I couldn't get rid of them.

This is a Valentine my old neighbor, Austin gave me, one year (: I think his cute momma helped him in choosing which Valentine to send my way!

Yes, I would display/hang up pictures even if I had a million repeats of one picture...I think I have about 30 of this one! (no sarcasm)

Orlando was even gorgeous as a blond, long-haired elf. (even though i never was a Lord of the Rings fan)

Orlando, once, was in a Gap add...This picture is barely larger than my thumb nail. But of course I had to cut it out, hang it and eventually tape in in my Orlando shrine.

My mom keeps telling me to throw it away (its currently sitting on our fireplace) but I just can't get myself to do it! To my mom, it may be trash. But to me, it is my childhood. Like they say, one mans trash is another mans treasure.

Professional Potty-Dancer

Its pretty sad when the thought of blogging about drinking water is more exciting than your homework. But you know what? The thought of blogging about drinking water IS more exciting than my homework. Much more exciting. So I decided to make that thought a reality...here I am. Blogging about drinking water. {i'll be a nerd later..}

It is recommended that you drink eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day. For those of you, like me, who hate math, allow me to be terribly kind and do the math for you. That equals 64 ounces of water a day. 

I was evaluating my health the other day and made a few personal goals regarding how I can become healthier. One of them was to start drinking the recommended amount of water. {and maybe lay off downing Diet Coke like theres no tomorrow}


Did you know drinking 64 ounces of water a day feels like you're slowly drowning yourself throughout the day?

yes, i have an epic batman blankie

Holy cow.


Imma toot my own horn here real quick. I've been averaging about 96-128 ounces of water a day.

Maybe I am drowning myself?

Now comes the "rant."

Drinking water is great! So healthy! It keeps your skin clear, helps you maintain/lose weight in a healthy manner, it flushes toxins from your body, keeps you hydrated, gives you more energy, I think I've heard it helps your brain work better?...You know...good stuff.

But want to know the heavy-duty downside?

You have to go to the bathroom allllllllllllllllll the time!! 

All. The. Time.

I do the potty-dance 24/7. I even find myself waking up in the few hours that I manage to sleep because my bladder was so full.

Ah, the perks to being a healthy person...along with the "perks" those kettlebells brought me...SO, SO sore. My arms and shoulders don't work, in case you wondered. (but that is a different post)

Okay. Thats it.

I have to sprint to the bathroom, now...(been doin' the potty-dance through this whole post)

Drink your water and be healthy, loves.

Your Happily Ever After

Once Upon A Time...

I just finished reading the BEST book! 

While watching General Conference last week, I chose to watch the shows in between the sessions. That meant that I also watched the commercials. I am convinced there were only six commercials, total, but there was one that stuck out to me each time it aired. It was the commercial about Dieter F. Uchtdorf's book, "Your Happily Ever After." 

Maybe I was drawn to this book because I've always been a sucker for fairy-tales or maybe it was because President Uchtdorf has always been my favorite since he was made a member of the Quorum of the Twelve. I don't know what it was but I'm so grateful that I got that continual urge to get my hands on that book.

My cute mommy (i wuv yoo) bought it for me this afternoon and I sat down with it a few minutes, ago...and its already completed. It isn't a long book or a difficult read, at all and obviously it doesn't take much of your time so guess what I'm going to do? I am going to recommend that YOU READ IT! Really, do. Go take a visit to lovely Deseret Book and purchase this lovely thing. I think it was only $15? Not positive, but I can tell you that its so good and worth that money. It should be $100! (haha okay that was cheesey) Mm, so good.

It is a book directed towards young girls, single girls, girls experiencing difficult times or in the process of overcoming trials. President Uchtdorf compares us princesses to Cinderella, Belle and the millers daughter, in that we, much like those princesses, have to endure trials and overcome hardships before we can reach our own happily ever after. He also says that our Once Upon A Time is now and one day we will look back at our journey and be able to see that we are living happily ever after. 

I want to go on, but its a short book and I don't want to tell you everything so you'll find an excuse not to read it. So, as I said before, GO BUY IT and read it and love it. 

This book filled my heart full of hope and reinforced my faith and trust in Heavenly Father's plan for me and especially in His timing! 

Okay, I'm done...Happy reading!! (:

Do you think I'd be a cute nerd? 

I think I am going to take up nerd-ism. 

No, I don't think I am. I know I am.

While I was sitting in Ethics and Values today at school, I had a great epiphany come to me...probably like the epiphanies Socrates believed he frequently received. {yep, believe it or not i listen in school} So what was this epiphany, you might ask? Simple. I, Chelsea Kate Walker, need to turn nerd.

Well what does that mean?

Again, its quite simple. I'm going to become quite school-y. Meaning that I am going to do my homework during the day {not after midnight} and do everything in my power to love it. I'm going to study, lots, too. Guess what else? I'm going to take up doing the extra credit assignments. Classic nerd (: I'm lovin' it. Feel free to be jealous. I wouldn't blame you.

I'll admit, I've always envied people like this. So I'm proudly jumping on the bandwagon. 

Imma work hard and get my nerd on. Now all I need are some strangely large classes, a fanny-pack, suspenders and pants that don't fit right. Mmmm.

Hellllooooooo A's!

Hellloooooo sooner graduation!

Hellllooooo happy parents!

Helllloooooo legit Chelsea!

Ooh, baby. This is gonna be gooood.


My new love/worst enemy.

To be brief, I have never felt so sore after a work out.
BUT sore=good.

And that is all.

I want this one to be perfect.
For the one man who has always been there for me
The one who has never let me down, broke my heart or stopped my dreams.
My first true love.
My first taste of the good, good life.
My daddy.
To the man who gave me everything, I give you my heart.
To the man who always had a smile reserved just for me
Even when his day was one of the worst.
To the spiritual giant I've been blessed to admire each day.
To the hard-worker who taught through his actions.
To the silent scripture reader, ponderer and prayer.
To the hero who always chased away the bad guys
And put strength back in his b.o.j.'s heart.
To the believer who always had more faith in me than I did.
To the happy man who radiates optimism.
To the motivator who pushed me to chase my dreams
All of the dreams, no matter how far-fetched.
To the daddy who raised the bar
And set high expectations.
Thank you.
For teaching me right from wrong.
For giving me his testimony to start my own.
For catching me each time I fall.
For reminding me there is good in the world.
For proving to me I deserve nothing less than the best.
For being the one who started my love of activity.
For laughing with me when I need it the most.
For encouraging me to be the best, even if its hard.
For proving hard work pays off.
For keeping me humble, faithful and righteous.
For never letting me give up or sell myself short.
For having genuine concern about his daughters lives.
For loving me.
You're my hero, big guy.
You're the only man I need right now.
And when the other guy I need does comes around
Don't worry
You'll always be my first love, my first real love.
No one can take your place in my life, in my heart.
You know, I hope that guy is just like you.
Mom is one lucky woman.
Daddy, I love you
I always have, I always will.
You got me where I am and you'll be there where I go.
I'll never see why I'm so lucky
Just remember I am thankful for you even when I don't show it.
At the end of the day
My heart is happy because you're my daddy.
My buddy, my pal, my hero, my example.
And just as you'll always be mine
I'll always be yours.
Your little girl.
Your biggest fan.
Your boj.

Part 2

It just didn't feel right...
Posting about Saturday's General Conference and not Sundays. 
Didya watch it? Did you love it? 
I did. I did.

Favorite talks, ready go!

[morning session]
Robert D. Hales: He spoke about patience and submitting ourselves to the Lords will. He spoke a lot about having faith and trusting in the Lord's timing and His plan, too. I was able to really apply this one to my life because I swear I'm just about the most impatient person on earth and so frequently I get caught up in wanting what I want, when I want it. It was great to be reminded that its all going to happen in God's time and its going to work better that way and make me happier, as well! 

Elaine S. Dalton: She spoke a lot about dads and their examples and important role in their daughters lives. Mostly, I just loved this one because I've got my wonderful daddy who is the father to three girls and I think he does his daddy-jobs, perfectly. It made me smile. She explained what a good dad should be, traits he should have, things he should do, etc. and my daddy was everything she described. This talk made me even more thankful for the fabulous daddy Savannah, Adi and I have been blessed with.

M. Russell Ballard: His talk was about taking the name of Christ upon us and taking that seriously. The most important thing in this talk, to me was when he stressed the name of our church. It is called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and should be referred to that more often that being referred to as LDS, Mormon, Christian, and the other nicknames our church has.

President Thomas S. Monson: To me, it seemed our Prophet stressed the importance of prayer. I was so happy to hear him speak so sincerely and passionately about how important it is to talk to our Father in Heaven, daily, and to keep a strong, unbreakable relationship with Him.

[afternoon session]
J. Devn Cornish: This talk, too, was about praying and having faith in our own prayers. What specifically stuck out to me is when he said when we ask for something, we need to have faith we will receive it. Also, we need to pray sincerely and realize how special it is to pray.

..I am so thankful for General Conference. I learned so much and heard so many great things and have set several new goals for myself to work towards (: The gospel is amazing and I'm SO happy that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! 


On a side note, the day before General Conference, I finished the Book of Mormon! I think this was my fourth time finishing! I love reading the Book of Mormon because each time you read it, you learn something new, get new feelings and the spirit is never dull just because you've already read it.

I love the scriptures!
I've got a question, now... I'm still deciding if I'm going to read the Book of Mormon, again, or shift my focus to Doctrine and Covenants or the New Testament, but either way, do any of you have any study habits that have worked very well for you? This time around I'm interested in changing my study habits to see if I can learn more new things! 

Saturday, October 1, 2011


Did you watch General Conference, today? I did. Oh golly, I love General Conference. There is absolutely nothing better than hearing the council from the Prophet, the 12 Apostles and the rest of the church leaders. They are truly inspired men called of God.
My view from the floor watching the Saturday Afternoon Session 

Did you hear the news? Provo is getting a second temple!! Two temples in Provo! That news made my heart skip a beat or two. I can't wait to visit it...and stalk it while its being built! (:

Okay, so what was your favorite talk? I know there are still two sessions tomorrow {and Priesthood tonight for you lucky men} but you can have a favorite talk of the day, you know? I think I had three favorite talks, today, all in the afternoon session.

1) Ian S. Ardern. He talked about using our time wisely and prioritizing and making sure we use our time to serve God and prepare to meet God, one day. He specifically hit on technology distracting us from using our time wisely. I am guilty of this. I'm an avid Facebooker, blog-stalker, tweeter... Definitely something I'll have to work on. I'm thankful to have heard this talk. (& i loved his accent)

2) LeGrand R. Curtis Jr. He talked about the Plan of Redemption. I just love that we're all fortunate enough to be able to repent of our wrong doings and still make it back to live with Heavenly Father, someday, if we live a righteous life. We're far luckier than we deserve, you know?

3) D. Todd Christofferson. This one is probably my very favorite talk...so far. He, too, talked about repentance. Something that really stuck out to me is when he said there has to be effort behind repentance instead of just thinking of repentance in your mind, you need to actively change. Love it. He also talked about the 5 aspects of repentance. 1: The invitation to repent. 2: Striving to change. 3: Abandon sin/commit to obedience. 4: Willingness to persevere (sp?). 5: Whatever the cost of forgiveness, it is swallowed up by the joy of being forgiven. So amazing.
Taking notes (:
I feel like I smiled all through these two amazing sessions... I can't wait for tomorrow's sessions! (: I hope you all get the chance to listen to/watch/read the talks, too! They're truly inspired and will, without a doubt, help you in your life if you take the council with an open heart!
Yes, I still play Conference Bingo. No, you're never too old to do so.
