If I Had Words (Saint-Saëns Symphony No.3) - Piano Cover by redprincess12345

This is the original video. I cut it so there would only be piano music. Might use this as my Daddy Daughter Dance at my wedding reception :3

I tagged you in a thing. Do it if you want, you don’t have to :)

Rule 1: Always post the rules. 
Rule 2: Answer all the questions from the person who tagged you and post them. Also write 11 new questions. 
Rule 3: Tag 11 more people and put a link in their ask boxes. 
Rule 4: You can’t answer questions unless you were tagged by the poster.
*Rule 5 (Optional): Tag the person who tagged you.

1. How many doors do you have in your house? 
well I live in an apartment with three other girls, so let’s see…1 (front door), 2 (sliding window/door), 3 (door to pantry/closet), 4 (door to back rooms), 5, 6 (bathroom doors), 7, 8, 9, 10 (doors to each girl’s room), 11 (door to furnace). So, ELEVEN!
2. What was the last book you read?
For fun? The Fault In Our Stars, and a little of Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry Cookbook. Because I have to? Kuby Immunology, Sixth Edition.
3. What kind of tea do you prefer, if any?
Herbal or rooibos, always. Today my favorite is Tulsi Dosha Chai with a little creamer and a cube of sugar. Other favorites are Peach Tranquility and Rooibos Tropica.
4. Do you keep your closet door open or closed? Do you care?
My closet don’t have no door! Ha! But I keep my bedroom door closed.
5. Celebrity crushes and why.
Robert Downey Jr. – because he’s so talented, snarky, quick, funny, has awesome facial hair, plays some of my very favorites (Iron Man, Sherlock) and he gave up drink and drugs after a crazy, harmful life.
Nathan Fillion – he’s downright funny, he’s Cap’n Mal Reynolds and Castle and Captain Hammer, and gosh he’s handsome
Hugh Jackman – amazingly talented, no one knew he had an amazing voice until Les Mis, he had been on broadway before, he’s Wolverine.
Benedict Cumberbatch – Tumblr already know’s he’s a god of acting and strangely good looks. Sherlock, Smaug/Necromancer, he’s in Amazing Grace, villain in next Star Trek movie
David Tennant – Tenth Doctor, actually Scottish (I just have a thing for Scottish accents, Kent will tell you)
Martin Freeman – just awesome. Hobbit, Watson, Arthur Dent, just awesome.
Gary Oldman – he can be anyone in any movie and make it sublimely wonderful
Emma Thompson – my heroine. Wrote the screenplay for Sense & Sensibility and acted as one of the main characters flawlessly, was in Stranger than Fiction, an amazing lady
Helena Bonham-Carter – plays crazy b’s all the time (HP, Sweeney, etc. etc.) but makes a wonderfully loving, balanced and adorable wife and queen in The King’s Speech
Emma Watson – one of the most admirable actresses of our time, in both ability and morality
6. Do you still have any stuffed animals?
Yes, and none of them are from when I was little. My mom says that one night she came in to tuck me in, and I had a bunch of books under the covers. “Honey, what are all these books doing in here?” to which I responded: “I’m going to bed with my friends!” 

My current stuffed animals are: Tarbo, a cougar I got when I came to BYU, named after Brigham Young’s native American nickname, Puppy-Moo a small round soft fluffy cow, a red angry bird, and a noisy Toothless thing
7. Who is your biggest inspiration? It can be anyone, real or fictional.
8. Do you believe in socks?
To be honest, no. I use them when I have to for warmth or shoe comfort, but I’d rather run around barefoot.
9. Any pets? Names, ages, stories?
Amadeus, “Ami”, Borsoi, my big brother until he died of cancer when I was five. I remember trying to teach him how to howl.
Pumpkin and Jingle, dumb fair goldfish, died when the house got too hot on vacation
Verdi, green garter snake, tried to eat her reflection in her water bowl, escaped one day via the turned-off airconditioner
Monty, beta fish, got him from one of my friends who moved away to Montana, jumped out of his bowl during cleaning
Phantom II, “Rhino”, feral tortoiseshell Hemingway cat, the best cat in the world, our dad tamed her and she lived with us for many years until she also had to be put down because of cancer <3
10. Do you have any allergies?
Sulfa and penicillin drugs. Severely. My eardrum exploded once because the eardrops had sulfa in them. Used to be allergic to milk and soy, but I’m good now.
11. What, in your opinion, was the worst grade for you in middle school?
As in letter grade, A-. I remember crying in 6th grade because I got that. What a silly perfectionist I was.
As in grade level, probably 8th. I was so done with middle school, and so excited to move.

CS Lewis: To love at all (x)

“I realized that a sister is a gift that can’t be replicated. A sister can make you cry with one look and shame you with one remark, but no one can make you laugh as hard; no one can keep you as honest; and no one can make you feel, with just a phone call, that you belong. You can hate your sister ferociously, but you will never stop loving her. Or needing her. Your sister is your history; she is your memory.”

For those of you don’t know, I’m LDS, more popularly known as Mormon. I’m not a perfect Mormon. I’m human, so I make mistakes. I swear and have a less-than-appropriate sense of humor at times. But I love my church and the peace it brings into my life. I wouldn’t be who I am without it. I don’t want this to change your opinion of me, but it might, and I’m sorry if it does. I know there are some less-than-favorable Mormons out there in the world.We make mistakes, just like non-Mormons. I apologize if any other members of my church have ever made you feel bad or inferior. They are human too, and not all Mormons are necessarily good people. If you ever have any questions for me, don’t be afraid to ask. I will answer them to the best of my ability and knowledge.
