h a double l o w double e n

I'm here at work. I've been working dilligently coding a document with student responses to a survey.. one of my absolute favorite things to do, but I'm starting to get a little anxious because I'm waiting on a fateful phone call. I'm hitting another life milestone and I'm excited about it, but I'm not gonna tell you what it is.. I'll just leave that up to your imagination. Nothing dirty, kids. I know you've got some crazy minds. Anyway, I'm anxious and bored. Not a good combination. So anyway, just wish me luck and know something awesome is happening.. for me at least.
Other than that, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! I love Halloween and I wish I wasn't working tonight so I could do something creepy, but if you love me enough, come to Los Hermanos and visit! Unfortunetly, I wouldn't be able to serve you tonight though because I'm working in the kitchen, but I would still love to see a friendly face... In fact.. I always love to see friendly faces at Los Hermanos. It totally makes my day or night so stop by anytime and I would be happy to bring you your chimichanga! That's about all I've got to say for now. Just wanted to pass some time and blogging seems about right for doing things like that.

Star Struck

Ooooh boy. I saw Donnie Osmond at Zupa's today! I'm not kidding. I'm not kidding at all. It was the best moment of my life. I'm serious. Reminds me of the time I saw Gary Coleman at Denny's. The stars eat out just like everybody else. Who knew?

I've been sick for the past few days... no good at all. It just makes me SO tired. Like everything I do is just too much. So I'm just really hoping for my sake and for the sake of those who have shared drinks with me that I don't have the mono. But I doubt that's what it is because I haven't been kissing anyone lately and I haven't been terribly stressed either (which can also cause mono.. it is not JUST the kissing disease). Probably just getting worn out from the sickness but it's making homework hard to do without falling asleep and everything else hard to do without yawning my head off. But this too shall pass.

Whilst I've been sick, my dear roommates have been angels to me instead of avoiding me like the plague and I'm grateful for them. Especially Sammy, who is always there for me when I need a little support. Love that girl. Anyway, just thought I'd give a little shout out to my ladies.

Life is good.. Men are that they might have joy. :)

I've reached the point of no motivation. How depressing. The semester's not even half over yet. I think it's a result of only taking two classes and one being Italian which really just kicks my butt. But, thankfully it's my last semester... of Italian that is. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. This is how over it I am. I'm deliberately missing my classes to blog and eat Lucky Charms... or shall I say Marshmallow Mateys? The good news is that this is the first time I've missed class all semester which may be a record for me. So there's that.

And then there's this man:

I have recently come to discover that while I thought I was a Master Pick-Up Artist, I was sadly mistaken. I've never been able to work a room quite like Mystery and Matador. Yeah, maybe I'll open up a set or two, but what does that matter when I can't manage to bounce with the guys I meet? Huh?

Basically, what I'm trying to say here is that I need to pick up my game. It's pretty rare that I'm actually feeling a guy and when I am, I just don't know what to do with myself. Really, it's just embarrassing. But anyway, I just wanted to give props to this love genius for doing what he does. He's my idol at the moment and I'm going to propose a female season for the Pick-Up Artist to VH1 because I think I could learn a lot from working with Mystery one on one.

90's New Wave Classy

Change of plans.

Man I love life. And I love the Gospel even more. As I've come to find out, life is not always what you think it will be. And here is yet another example of that. I've been preparing for a mission for the last four months and I finished my papers and sent them into my bishop and was SOOOOO excited to go serve the Lord because wow! What an amazing opportunity! And then my bishop was out of town when I was supposed to get my interview.. and didn't return my calls for a week and a half. And I'm incredibly grateful for the time that the situation gave me to think. Right before when my bishop's interview was supposed to happen, I started feeling really anxious about leaving. Normal, right? Right. So I tried to brush it off and continue preparing and being excited. But as it turns out, the Lord knows better than I do and after quite the intense "finding out" process, I realized that I need to stay here and that serving a full-time mission is just not what I'm supposed to be doing right now. So I'm sorry for the lack of excitment this brings and the lost anticipation of where I'm gonna go, but I feel better about this decision than I ever did about going and so there ya go.

I've been thrown yet another curve ball. Thank goodness. Because without all the curveballs, life would not only be much less exciting, but much less fulfilling as well.

I'm sure that the Lord has more than one reason for me staying here, but I have yet to find out what they are, and in the meantime, enjoying life has been a bit of a challenge, but it's getting easier quickly.

I am grateful that I don't have to say goodbye to all of my fantastic friends and my family for a year and a half though and I do have a pretty stellar life. So I think the way I feel can best be summarized in the words of the ever popular and ever wonderful U2: "One love. One blood. One life you got to do what you should. One life with eachother sisters and brothers. One life but we're not the same. We get to carry eachother, carry eachother."
