nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.

I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.

Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.

When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.


The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.

This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is. 

And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her. 

What a good movie. 

Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.

It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.

Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.

And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.

What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.

Dean De Blois, ladies and gentlemen, genius director and writer of friggin’ amazing nonnormative characters, family and relationships. I may worship that man, a little bit. From Lilo and Stitch to HHTTYD, he really gives us amazing movies.

I love how me and Sherylley still basically talk everyday, and about everything and anything.  And it’s been a lot recently and I really missed talking to her everyday.

 When she leaves to Sac State, it’s going to be weird not having her around the 5 corners. Even though we didn’t hang out everyday, I still could always knew she would be only 5 corners away and not 56 minutes away in current traffic.

I’ll never forget during the last Thunder game we went to and they did that montage for all the soldiers who lost their lives, and they were all local people, and Steven was standing right next to me and I cried so hard. I told him he wasn’t allowed to join the Marines because I’d literally die if I ever saw his face on something like that.  I miss you Steven.

Day 2: A Photo from Freshman Year
This honestly took me a long time to find. My freshman year was such a crazy year, and there were so many pictures (but not necessarily all good ones). I chose this picture because it reminds me of how much fun swimming was my freshman year. Taylor and Courtney were such great people then, and are even better people now. I love how in this picture it’s the three of us, freshman year and that we have taken the exact same one almost every year. I cannot believe that it has already been 4 years of high school and in 28 days we are graduating. We will be moving on to bigger and better things. I will always look back at this picture and think, “Damn, I went through so much with these two girls. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone!”
I don’t want high school to end, but I know that there are so many other things out in the world for me to do. I’m glad I had the experiences I did in high school, and I will forever keep them with me.

So it’s officially the last 30 days of Senior Year, and I feel it’s right to do the Senior Year Challenge. So here goes. :)
Day 1: The College You’re Attending
In the fall, I will be attending …………………. San Joaquin Delta College. I know, I know, I can do so much better. Everyone tells me this, and I get it. I am in the top 10 at WRHS and I am not going to some prestigious school. I feel that because it’s me, people are super shocked. But it’s just a school. It’s just a degree. Going to Delta in the fall is going to be….. interesting aha. But I know that going to Delta, I will be getting an almost better education because it is such a small campus and the relationship between teacher and student is much closer.
It also helps that I have those two free years of tuition at Delta. Having that in mind helped with not choosing a UC or CSU. Another thing that helped was the fact that I got zero financial aid from any school. No scholarships, no grants, no work-study, nothing. So going to Delta I know that I can save money by staying at home and abusing all the resources I get there, free dorming, free utilities, free food, etc. It also means that I will be able to get a job because I know the area and I won’t drift too far from home. I am a family girl, and I love my family. I don’t want things to happen and I’m living 5 hours away somewhere.
So in the fall, this girl is going to attend Delta College. Not the most prestigious of schools, but it’s the one I’m going to, and I have finally accepted it. image
