my best

This lady is amazing.
and that's why she is my best friend.
Jenn (aka Viva) puts up with a lot.
I'm a hard person to deal with...but she does it wonderfully.

She steals me LoTs of mints when we go out to eat, even though she doesn't like them.

When there was only a pink bin and a yellow bin left, she automatically gave me pink without me saying a word because she knows I hate yellow.

She cooks me dinner and doesn't care that I just sit there and watch her.

She doesn't make me feel like an idiot when I sleep in and miss classes, even though she probably feels like telling me I'm stinkin' lazy.

She doesn't go home on weekends when I tell her that I don't want to be alone.

She laughs at all my jokes, even (and maybe especially...) when they are absolutely ridiculous.

She remembers EVERYTHING. She's like my walking and talking journal.

Most of all...she has a good heart. Like, deep down, she only wants to make other people happy. and I love her for that.


cute old men

Today I went running and found myself sitting on a bench at the temple feeling a little bummed about this thing they call "life." I wasn't really thinking about anything in particular...just that I was feeling completely overwhelmed with school and some decisions I need to be making soon. The temple grounds were bustling with people coming and going, but no one paying any attention to me just sitting there. Except for a cute old man all by himself who was hunched almost half way over and making his way slowly to his car. He stopped dead in his tracks and said, "Hello!! How are you doing today?" I replied that I was good and asked him how he was doing. He said, "I am doing wonderful! It's a beautiful day!!" and then, "It was so good to see you!!" Now...I don't know if this old man was suffering from Alzheimer's and maybe he thought he knew me, but I prefer to think that he was just a good person trying to make someone's day a little bit better. And you know what? It worked.

I'm beginning to think that that's what life is all about. cute old men.

i miss it

I have a new job. And quite frankly, its lots better than my old job.
This is why I should love Firehouse more than Winger's:
1-I make more money.
2-They have a busser.
3-They have a dishwasher.
4-They have a salad maker.
5-Their mops don't fall apart.
6-They never run out of silverware.
7-They never run out of anything for that matter.
8-They have 2 coke machines.
9-They don't serve popcorn.
10-I don't have to wear a uniform that makes me look like a gas station attendant.
11-I don't come home covered in sticky wing sauce.
12-They don't have side work.
13-They don't have booth busting.
14-I don't eat french fries all day.

This is why I don't:
I miss my girls... :(



Autumn is quickly becoming my new favorite season.
Thats a lie. Summer will forever rule in my book of favorites.
But if I had to choose a second favorite, Autumn would be it.
Why? because:
the days are still warm-
but just cold enough to wear cute sweaters
and for some reason, i love it when
leaves crunch under your feet.
