WOW, did you just see that tumbleweed pass by? It has been a long while since I've been on here writing about my boring everyday life in a way that makes you guys laugh!
But I am back with a new resolve to better document my life on here. Today won't be a day of angry open letters or long involved rant sessions. It's a list of funny anecdotes/updates. Truth be told, I'd like to write a long rant because I'm in a TERRIBLE mood which probably is in part my own fault, but partly due to other people. A rant would be good, but I would probably say some things I regret, so I won't. So you get a haphazardly thrown together list of funny stories and updates.
Funny Story #1
This last week Lisa (my roommate, more on her later) and I drove 8 hours to see a wizard rock band show in Cody, WY. Yes, I'm aware of how strange that sounds, but it was an adventure and I love me some adventure. Lisa was game for the long drive and so we road tripped it. I hate long car rides, but I enjoyed this because Lisa and I listened to music, talked about life, and I read to her out loud from a Norah Roberts book. Yes, a Norah Roberts book. Make all the jokes you want, but IT WAS FUN! The not so fun part was that while we were driving home from the concert (the same day) we had a deer hit us about 10 o clock at night. We ended up staying a kind of gross motel and then driving our sticky stinky selves home with a broken windshield and a driver side door that wouldn't open. The concert itself was amazing and I got to meet some people I've been wanting to meet for some 3 years now. It was a memory I'll have for a long time that I will revisit when I'm feeling sad. I also uttered a sentence that I thought would never fall from my lips "I'm glad to be back in Utah...where everything makes sense."
I'm finally back at work with full privileges now that my back is healed!! Oh you didn't hear? I hurt my back 2 weeks ago. Nothing bad of course, just a muscle strain. It was bad enough, however, that was enough to send me to the ER, and then take me off of work for two weeks. I was so bored out of my mind that I ended up doing crazy things/dressing in crazy clothes to stave off the boredom (see funny story #1).
I am also finally in my permanent apartment, at least for the next 6 months (that's how long our lease is). I plan to probably stay there longer, so long as everything is still working out with my roommates. I'm hoping to stay there for the entirety of my school career (May 2012). It's pretty great to not be living out of boxes, to put stuff on the walls, and to know (relatively) where everything I own is. I also picked up another roommate named Lisa (see funny story #1) who is pretty freaking awesome. We have a ton in common and I feel like she's one of my best friends already! Rachel is awesome, as usual. And the three of us are having a great time in our new place. I don't know how they put up with me some times.
Cool Story #1
I got to spend 2 really great days with my photography idol, Cat Palmer and I gotta tell you, that woman is an amazing person. She is so confident, so cool, so personable. She made my self esteem go right through the roof with her amazing attitude. I had gone on a date the night before our first day together (it hadn't gone so well) and normally I would have been bummed, but she just assured me that I would someday find the right guy. And if I didn't? I'd be just fine. Seeing her artwork gave me a new found motivation to create my own art. It was an amazing blessing to be with her, to realize that no matter how I look, I am of worth. She makes everything look so beautiful, you can't help but feel 100 times better spending time with her.
Funny Story #2
The cruise was AMZAZING and I had a great time turning 24 in Mexico. The surf lesson was one of the best ideas I've ever had. I was seriously tempted to just stay in Mexico and surf the rest of my life away with the whole Costa Azul family. They didn't make it easy for me to go back to the ship. They were all so cool. A whole family running a buisness together and a buisness that involved being at the beach every day? Count me in! Zip lining was also really really fun, and our two guides kept us laughing the whole time. We also took belly dancing lessons and I went ice skating. All in all it was an extremley worthwhile trip!
I'm not going to talk about my dating life at present (it's a large portion of why I'm in such a bad mood today) but know there might be a post in the future about it.
Cool Story #2
Lisa's boyfriend Austin brought us all three seasons of Avatar The Last Airbender. We immediately feel deeply in love with the show. It's funny, serious, lovely, and inteligent all at the same time. Because of that, I got really excited that the movie was coming out. I was very disapointed in how TERRIBLE the movie was. I hope that should they make a second movie, that they kick M. Night Shamalalmalaming out on his bad movie making ass.
Anyway, that is all, I'm pretty much done talking about myself, but I promise, I won't go that long again without updating.
