Zooey Deschanel

I have been in love with her acting since the first performance I saw, and ever since revel in her character renditions. Most obvious are her roles in Elf, All the Real Girls. Hitchhiker's Guide, 500 Days of Summer, Failure to Launch, Tin Man, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and finally from what I have seen, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. That last was an awesome movie btw...

Her musical performances have been scattered throughout her acting career even though music is her main passion.
Her recent release of Volume One creating She & Him is a throw back to the old jazzy croon songs in our past.
But besides all these accomplishments, I love her fashion sense! She seems to always be able to throw together vintage articles with the current trends successfully and artfully.

Yay for vintage fashion inspiration!

Who has seen a bathing suit of lace? Really now? I would utterly die to have one!

These next shots are just fun and love the attitude.

Did I mention she is married to Ben Gibbard from Deathcab for Cutie?

Ummm, and that she is the sister of Emily Erin Deschanel, the star actress in Bones, one of my favorite television shows of all time?

For realsies people. For reals.

The Perfect Man

Ok, we all know he doesn't exist in reality... But the closer I can get the better!

Matthew Gray Gubler, aka The Gube, is mainly known for his role in Criminal Minds as Dr. Spencer Reid, a fact obsessed member of the Behavioral Analyst Unit in the F.B.I.

I have never been one to find characters in shows or movies as anything more than attractive, but this man is Simply Delicious.

There are no other words.

At first his high intellect, nerd like aspect, and shyness immediately endeared me to his character, but eventually the pure sweetness of his intentions toward others has completely undone me.

This realization had me seriously thinking of the qualities I most desire in a partner, which led me to thinking about the qualities I most desire in myself, to be fair.

I understand its simply ridiculous to have such high expectations of someone else while not following through myself, so with this in mind I created a short little list of the things I need to work on to help motivate myself and to maximize this single part of my life.

1. Financially independent/secure
2. Ambitious/Set career goals
3. Passionate (about anything!)
4. High intellect/Educated
5. Shyish (only because I then trust much more easily)
6. Humorous
7. Active

Steps to take on my end:
1. Follow my budget and continue to pay off debt
2. Commit to MCAT studying more vigorously
3. Follow through with art inspirations
4. Begin and continue a regular exercise routine

Reward: This man! .... ooooor not lol.

Mmmmmmmmmm. Yum.
