"A Day Without Laughter Is A Day Wasted"

Dearest Charlie Chaplin,

  You are remarkable, and I kinda wish we were best friends!

Love, Karleen (:

ok ok ok. this is BY FAR the most amazing song ever (: 
p.s. the Michael Buble version = fabulous!


Smile though your heart is aching.
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky,
you'll get by, if you smile with your fear and sorrow.
Smile and maybe tomorrow you'll see the sun come shining through--
for you.

Light up your face with gladness.
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
that's the time you must keep on trying.
Smile, what's the use of crying?

You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
if you just smile

(: (: (: (: (: (: (: (: (: (: 


Thank you Mr. Chaplin for being so brilliant.

Seriously though, these are the words that I need to hear daily, I think we ALL do. 
We all have rough days, and we all have trials and we get hurt.  
but if you just smile things will improve. (:

and life really truly is worthwhile, but you don't need me to tell  you that (:

I really just wanted to show the world how wonderful this is..

p.s. James Franco is my husband (: (:

The Tizzle Wizzle Show-Jammie Shuffle

This helps me go to bed at night (:

...fall break(:

Fall break, aahhh such a relief!
this weekend has been SO eventful!

    My friend Spencer (who I only met about a week ago) asked me on a date.  He picked me up at 11:30 am, and we went to Winger's for lunch, it was yummy (: we basically sat there for probably forty-five minutes after we had finished eating, just talking! We learned SO much about each other it was so great!  Theeeen the waiter was pissed! It was funny, but we felt bad so we left.  Then we went to Rock Canyon and we went on a looong hike, up a really hard hill and we rested at the top, it was THE prettiest view ever! We talked some more, I'm pretty sure I've nearly got this boy figured out!
   Next we waited for his friends and their dates to come so we could go real rock climbing..I was scared out of my pants!  I felt pretty stupid because Spencer is a freaking ninja and is fearless!  I'm still pisssed...just kidding not really.  Anywaysssss...I was glad Spencer would help me (: he was a sweetheart because pretty much I was shaking from fear..(I'm afraid of heights by the way). 
      Soooo, we were together for about eight hours straight, it was AWESOME! I had sooo much fun with him (:
p.s. he's a red head (: (: (:

    First I took my friends shift at was lame. theeen the party began!!  Me and Jared Jespersen (another ginger, hooray!) basically love Lord of the Rings...well I'm obsessed, shut up don't judge.  The best part is that the night before neither of us got very much sleep, so we were both suuuuper tired!!
0: (me)..0: (Jared) that's us yawning. 

By the way Jared is SamWise and I'm's fine, don't worry about it (: 
Unfortunately, we only watched The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers...we didn't quite get to The Return of the King...): but that's okay we still sat in front of the tv for like freaking six hours!!!!'s worth it (: I'm pretty sure we both went insane..we found the lamest things funny. my favorite is when we would laugh at the orcs because they're ugly..sometimes we would point to one and be like "haha that's you!!"'s fine we're just SUPER immature (: I like it! 
Jared is obsessed with loin cloths... was pretty awesome because I started noticing airplanes..they were driving me crazy because I was trying to stay in the mode of LOTR but the stupid planes kept ruining it!! so, then we had a contest (: I saw more planes than him!  He even caught up to me and beat me for like...two seconds, but I'm super pro! Score 62 to 59..NOT counting the moon. (:

well yeah, Jared is pretty much awesome. I love him lots (: 

SATURDAY Work Much???
Well, I was originally scheduled in the afternoon, noon until four..but I'm SUCH a good friend I took Milie's shift because she wanted to be with her boyfriend...whaaaa??? that's okay..WHATEVER

So, I worked ten hours, straight, no breaks..still sore from rock climbing..yeah pretty sure that is self explanatory (: thaass okay though. So, I'm exhausted and grumpy and I just need a hug and a foot massage ): 

weeellll it's past my bed time (:
I've got to go put on my jammies (: nighty night!

senior citizen?

Today as I was driving home and I was behind a car that was kinda a bus...I don't know how to explain it! but it's like a old people's clinic van type of thing..anyways! on the back it said:
 "Seniors Out and About"
at first I laughed at it, because I laugh out loud all the time when I'm alone, it's pretty awesome.
and I thought nothing of it until I realized the song I was listening to was about growing up. and literally I read the sign again while the chorus was was creepy.
this is it:

Coffee Break-Forever The Sickest Kids

it's mostly just the chorus that hit me, it was crazy. 
and there's a little part about his mom. I love my mum, and she loves me even though I've broken her heart so many times...I know she loves me still because she keeps me close.

Anyways...the whole point of this whole thing is: reality hit me.
I'm a senior in high school...this is it. 
I've grown up so quickly, and I don't know where all the years have gone.
I never believed them when they told me it would go by so fast, I never realized that all the things I procrastinated, and all the times I fooled around would all catch up to me sooner or later...and I was only a little girl I believe them with all my heart, I wish I did then because now I regret it. I regret that I never took the time to look at the world and how beautiful it is until now. Life is insanely hard to grasp.  and it's all going way too fast, and life needs to slow down, I wish time were on my side.  Oh well, the only person I can blame is myself, and the only person who can fix this all is myself. lame...

sooner or later I'll be a senior citizen..having my little walker and yelling at them wipper snappers! ah shoot, seriously though I've learned that I just need to take life slowly, but not too slow that everything passes me by.

here are my thoughts....

okay so this little chant is from the movie, "The Hot Chick" and has been stuck in my head since second period..

"boys are cheats and liars, they're such a big disgrace! they will tell you anything to get to second baseball, baseball he thinks he's gonna score! if you let him go all the way then you are a horticulture studies flowers, geologist studies rocks! the only thing a guy wants from you is a place to put his cockroaches, beetles, butterflies and bugs! nothing makes him happier than a giant pair of jugglers and acrobats, a dancing bear named Chuck. All guys really want to do is...forget it, no such luck!!"
impure thoughts!!


so, I heard this quote today and  I'm basically in with it. Everyone can apply it to their lives.  You know those days when you look at your life and just think everything is crap, and nothing is good about it..blah blah blah. yeah that's me EVERYDAY. this quote is so simple but so REMARKABLE..kay..
"the happiest people don't have the best of everything, but they make the best of everything they have."

Monday, October 11


I'm Karleen Mayre Peck. I guess that's a good way to start everything out right? um, I go to Timpview High School.  And I'm not sure what I'm going to do about college...Undecided, Ohio (thank you Amanda Bynes).
I like slow music a lot, probably my favorite. 
I like movies that make me laugh, cry, jump or punch the person sitting next to me, with the exception of Bambi that movie always gets me to do them all and I still hate that movie.
I like freckles and that feeling in your tummy when you recycle (:  
I like sticking my tongue out of the car window like a dog it's pretty great.  
I like late night phone calls.  
I like my best friends who keep me going.  
I like birds, pelicans are AWESOME. 
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and just eat everything that's in the pantry, and that's usually when I'm most awake. 
I can get hurt really easily, and I like to speak my mind a lot, but that is getting better!

I like being different, so different that I sit in choir and watch everyone do the warm-ups and try to make my mouth move differently than everyone else.  Also in young women's when we say the theme thing, yes..I say it like 0.1 second after everyone, it's funny (:  

I have a crush on a lot of guys, you know, those cuties on the screen...ya... ANYWAYS..

I like to talk about cheese when there is nothing else to talk about. "She's The Man" totally stole that "do you like cheese?" thing from me, I'm ticked.

well, i ramble it's wonderful. but this is my blog! I like 
Is another way of saying blog, typing your life and feelings? because that's what I'm doing. deal with it.  
sometimes when I'm home alone I blast show tunes and sing my heart out as if I were to ever be them.....HAHAHAHAHAH yeah I know... 

I like having breakfast at night.  
I like my crappy man car that barely functions.
I always stop and smell the flowers.  
I LOVE my family and i LOVE my bed. 
sunshine is the best, and winter just sucks! 
I like to smile when my heart is breaking.  
I like to write letters and send them to my friends that live two blocks down.
I hate seeing my mommy cry, I hate seeing my daddy upset. 
But, i love seeing them smiling at me. (: 

I don't like blondes it's all about brunettes and red heads, mmmmmm (: 

anyways. it's past my bed time, just kidding it will be when I get my homework done, so bye-bye for tonight.
