#MCM: Ozzy Lusth

My man Crush Monday is none other than the handsome, the wonderful, the great: Ozzy Lusth


Ozzy was on Survivor: Cook Islands, Micronesia and South Pacific.

He is also the one of the manliest men to EVER appear on the show.
Yeah Ozzy. You hold that coconut.

On Cook Islands he was the runner up. Jeff Probst was definitely a fan of him saying Ozzy was one of the best competitors and dominated in every aspect of the game. #MyMan

In Micronesia, Ozzy had a rough time. He was blind-sided by the beautiful, and super annoying, Parvati Shallow. He did not make it to finals but he made it onto the jury. And if you can't win the show or make it to the finals, then getting on the jury is next on the list.

Unfortunately, Ozzy didn't ever win Survivor. His last and final appearance on Survivor: South Pacific was not his friend. He had a rough time there, but made multiple moves that will go down in Survivor History:

  1. He made one ballsy move by telling his tribe to vote him out to redemption island, where he survived the entire season.
  2. Later he was able to re-enter the game, only to be voted out AGAIN. That's twice in one season. but once more, he dominated redemption island, beating everyone who attempted to challenge his wonderful prowess.
  3. He later re-entered the game and was voted out one final time. He was the last member of the jury, which rubbed salt on the freaking wound. #ouch. But no one had ever been voted out
    Lets all take a moment to revel in this man-bun glory
    THREE times in one season, in that way, he accomplished the impossible.
  4. However, his real saving grace was winning the "Sprint Player of the Season" finally winning something!
So unfortunately, Ozzy never won. But fortunately he graced us with his presence on not one, not two, but three Survivor seasons.

So from every person with eyes, to you, thank you. Thank you Ozzy for letting us view your all encompassing glory.

What I Would Take to the Island

I'm nearly sure there is a question in the casting process that says, "If you could take one comfort item with you to the Island, what would it be?"

I've thought long and hard about this question, and I've come up with a list of finalists that would make it to the island with me.

1. Dr. Pepper. But not any Doctor Pepper, it would have to be a Dirty Doctor Pepper. That is where there is coconut flavoring mixed in with the normal drink. Ahhhhh it's divine!

2. Popcorn. Popcorn is one of my favorite food groups. I eat a bag a day. On a great day, I eat two.

3. Clean Underwear. After a few weeks of wearing the same bottoms every day, it would be refreshing to wear something clean down there. That's all I'm saying..

4. A Journal. I'm a journal-er. Every night I sit down and write pages on pages in my journal. If/When I'm Survivor, I would LOVE to be able to document my time there the way I do best!

What would you bring to the island with you? What would your ONE comfort item be?? I'm curious to see if my comfort items are way out there. Let's be honest, they probably are. I'm kind of an "out there" person.

5 Reasons Kim K could never make it on Survivor

Kim Kardashian can totally break the internet, but could she survive Survivor?
There are 5 reasons why Kim K could never be on Survivor:

1. Her one comfort item would be her phone

2. She would have no idea what she is doing

3. All the food would be gone the first day

4. This

5. At the first sight of a bug....

6. But in the end, It's all about the respect man. Respect.

I Can Survive Survivor

This is the first installment of "If I can survive ____, then I can survive Survivor!" 

1. I took a Walking Dead quiz and got 100% of the answers right.
If I can survive a zombie apocalypse, I can survive Survivor.

2. If I can survive the post graduation job application process, I can survive Survivor.

Anyone want to tell me how this "job cannon" works?

3. If I can survive not being married at age 21 in Utah, then I can TOTALLY survive Survivor.

Seriously, that should be a disclaimer for living in Utah.
"WARNING: If you aren't married before 22, don't bother"

4. If I can survive this:
I can survive Survivor.

5. If I can survive graduating from college, I can survive Survivor.

I technically don't gradate till December... Knock on wood.

Click back next week for installment #2 of "If I can survive _____, then I can survive Survivor!"

My, "Oh CRAP!" Moment

This post is my way of trying to save an application that I recently submitted to an employer in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Recently I pressed the submit button on an internship application and I thought to my self, "Wow! I am on my way!"

When I woke up the morning after, I realized I submitted the wrong information on the application. This employer had asked for two specific samples of my writing, what I ended up submitting was two links to general samples of my work. Some might appreciate that, but I want them to see the work I am most proud of. Because unfortunately, I am not proud of every single thing I've ever written! How embarrassing.

Is this the most professional way to go about saving my application? Probably not. BUT, I will get points for ingenuity and cleverness. You can't ever gain too many cleverness points.

So unless this employer has already viewed my blog and realized how crazy I am, then this is too late. But it's worth a shot! So here are two of my favorite stories I have written. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them :)

If I can survive the post graduation job application process , I can survive Survivor.
