November 2011

In case you don’t know me very well, I hate people. Yep, it’s true. Hate them.  People annoy me.  But there is an exception.

I have the most AMAZING friends and I love them!

They call me out on my BS.  They are there when I need them.  They drag me out in the pouring rain to see a movie that I didn’t want to see in the first place.  They make me walk across a bridge, in the cold, above a freezing river, when I’m terrified of heights.   The respond to text messages in the most random ways.  They send me hilarious videos at 3 o’clock in the morning.  They draw me pictures.  They hit on me (well not all of them but some of them).  They make me uncomfortable.  They call me beautiful.  They tell me when I look like crap.  They eat candy with me.  They help me make big decisions.  They care about me.  They make it where I don’t have to eat alone.

And the most important thing they do….

They love me for me.

I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not around them.  They don’t expect me to lie or be someone I’m not.  They can see past all the masks that I use and they don’t care.  They just want me to be be.  That’s why they are the most amazing people in my life.


This Thursday is Thanksgiving. I guess that means that I’m supposed to blog about what I am thankful for right? Well I’m giving in and I’m going to do it.

Here’s my list:

  • I’m thankful that Cindy is in my life
  • I’m thankful that I have figured out what to do with my life
  • I’m thankful that I am single
  • I’m thankful that I have repaired some of my broken relationships
  • I’m thankful for my Starbucks guys aka Josh, Zack, Todd, and Ben
  • I’m thankful that I have people like Rikki Turner to turn to when I’m having a bad day
  • I’m thankful that I have 2 beautiful nieces
  • I’m thankful that I’m attempting to fix my relationship with God
  • I’m thankful that I have people who want me to fix my relationship with God
  • I’m thankful that I have lost the friends that I have lost (that means they shouldn’t be in my life)
  • I’m thankful for the new friends that I have made
  • I’m thankful that I’m me

Yep, that sounds about right.  What are you thankful for this year?


My grandparents

This is a recap of the last month of my life since I haven’t posted in a while.  It’s a sad post because the only positive thing that has happened this last month is that I have finally decided what I want to do with my life.  It only took me 21 years but I’m happy.  I’m really really happy about it.  Things finally seem to be falling into place and it’s great.

Here’s the recap:

1. My grandfather has fallen twice.  One of the times he passed out, the other time he fell out of bed (he said he was having a dream and fighting someone).  This scares me because my grandfather is one of my favorite people in the entire world.  I don’t know what I would do with out him.  He annoys me but I love listening to his stories.  I love how he hums to himself and he talks to himself and he lies.  Boy does he lie.  Its mostly about all the sweets that he ate that he isn’t supposed to eat but we all know he does.  My grandfather means everything to me and it scares me that he is getting old, and that he is having more health issues than ever before and that the doctors have no idea what is causing it.


2. we had to put down the family dog.  We found her in a field in 2003.  She was taking care of two Chihuahuas and was living in a hay bale.  We picked her up and called her Scruffy.  She was the best dog you could ask for.  She got really sick this summer and she was old so we didn’t have a choice, but that was really hard on me.  It’s strange when I go home and see only 2 dogs now, but on the bright side of that, Roxy just had 4 puppies so it really is the circle of life.

On another note, we are playing Humans vs Zombies in Housing and I am still a human!  I only have to make it until Thursday but I don’t know if it’s going to happen.  They are after me.  They followed me to Target tonight but they never saw me!  There aren’t very many humans left so I’m starting to get worried.
