Today was great. I went into work early because I couldn’t sleep. And the day went by pretty fast. After work I layed put by the pool, of course. A friend of mine came over and laid out with me and then we made dinner together and caught up on everything! proceeded with a sleepover. It was a lot of fun.
I love catching up with old friends.
Thought of the day:
Even when things may suck or be very challenging… We are so blessed. Start looking at your blessings and do you best to make someone else’s day and help them count their blessings. Who knows…. Maybe you would be included in their list of blessings.

I am amazed at how great this week has been.
Anyways! Tonight I layed out after work and soaked up some rays. Then I met up with a very very old friend! It was fantastic. We talked for a bit and watched hunger games.
I haven’t read the books but aside from the book to movie relevance, no one can deny that this was a good movie. The acting was phenomenal and the graphics were amazing. I have never had a movie that held me captive the way that one did. I was on the edge of my chair all night and ignored my phone that was consistently vibrating (which really says a lot.)
Tomorrow I am laying out and hanging out with the above mentioned old friend and making dinner and catching up some more!
The weekends almost here.

Today work went by really fast! Thankfully.
After work I laid out by my pool and listened to music,
My roomie and I had to go to class to turn in our papers but we left early so we could go to a church activity. It was a lot of fun. After the Church activity, I went to the batting cages and then came home and did a bunch of pilates. it felt great! I love my life!
Thought of the day: Why lie? it only hurts everyone involved? I really don’t get why telling the truth is so hard. it makes things so much easier.
that is all. xoxoxzo

So I got to sleep in a bit today which was nice. At church, a very attractive gentleman gave my roommate and I some cute notes regarding how great we looked. Hahahaha made our freaking days!
After church we went into baking mode. We made cheesecakes, peanut butter cookies, and chocolate covered strawberries. I was able to enjoy some goodies while writing a paper that I have due tomorrow. I feel good having that finished!
Then we went to a game night and played ping pong and joked around a bunch. I got asked on a date… generally they get a number and then never call or nothing really happens. But this guy just knocked it out all tonight. So we are going out friday night.. A
This week is full of adventures. I hope I can keep up….
Really keeping a strong prayer in my heart right now.
Count the blessings….

I am going to stop dropping the ball on this blogging!
So today I started off thinking it was Wednesday. It was a very pleasant surprise when I discovered it was Thursday. The day went by fast but there was so much drama at work. My team at work is the best on our project and so we are held to a much higher standard than a typical employee. So we had a very serious meeting at work that lasted a good couple of hours.
I am now at red robin awaiting the arrival of a friend/roommate so I can hear all about her dramatic day as well.
It’s almost the weekend. We’re just hanging on by a thread. But we are almost there!
Thought of the day: find the little things that make you happy. Focus on them. AlL the time.

So today I slept for 13 hours straight. It was amazing. Church we great too. I got to spend some quality time with my roommates.
Yesterday was really fun too! I went to breakfast with one roommate and then went shopping with another. I got some cute business clothes for work. Then we went to lunch at another roommates restaurant and enjoyed that thoroughly. We then made chocolate covered strawberries and took a nice walk to the park. There, we played catch and enjoyed the beautiful overcast weather. We got ready for our dates that night and went our seperate ways. My date and I met my parents at a comedy club and enjoyed laughing our butts off!
After I returned home and got into some comfy clothes and enjoyed my 13 hour slumber.
Back to the grind tomorrow.

Oh how I love Saturdays. Today a friend of mine is going to help me wash my car and then I have another date tonight. This is the guy that I went out with last week and had such a good time! I told him how Iike to take corners in my car as fast as I can because I like the rush so he is takin me to the ford raceway to race go karts. But these go karts go up to like 45 mph!
I’m stoked! I think that was sweet of me to think of a second date activity based on what I had told him on our first date.
I am getting a pedicure right now because it has been 3 months since I have had one and I think I freaking deserve one.
Anyways, let today’s adventures begin

Today was quite a day. I had to make up some hours at work so I went in super early and and worked straight through with no breaks.
But then I got to unwind and go to game works with a ton of friends and had an absolute blast. (it was a giant group date)

So today was eventful. I worked, like usual but towards the end of the day I had a really bad freak heart episode. It resulted in 911 being called and being wheeled out of my office in a stretcher. Oxygen helped a lot and I was kept in the hospital for 6 hours. After being stable for a little bit and taking a walk around the hospital halls for a bit, they released me.
It was the scariest experience of my life. I have had heart issues before but this was such a different and more intense experience.
I am grateful that I was on the heart monitor when it happened and really hoping that it caught what it was.
Anyways, I’m especially exhausted and going to bed.
I am extremely grateful for my family, roommates and friends at this point. Their love and support has really carried me through. Like I said earlier, I have never been more scared for an issue like this in my entire life.
Moral of the story: be there for your friends. Through thick and thin.

Today was a great day!
Work went by fast and I had a guy on the phone that told me what a blessing I had been in his life and how I would be in his prayers. It made me happy. Even in an unlikely place and situation I can and am making a positive impact in the lives of those around me. It made me feel great to help him in even such a small way.
After work I had to change and get to class.
I am currently sitting in my philosophy class…. Sipping on a delicious strawberry lemonade! Mmhhmmm
I am most definitely looking forward to reuniting with my bed tonight.
Let’s make a goal for this week! It’s Monday so it will give our minds something to distract from time dragging by. Let’s focus on making a difference..(a positive difference) in someone unlikely’s life. Get creative and let’s all pay it forward cuz we have all been blessed with so much let’s help others see the same
Monday doesn’t have to be such a drag! Enjoy the rest of the week!

So, Today has already been such a roller coaster!
To start, I had a friend that was angry this morning and decided to take it out on me and said things.
This was after a horrible night’s rest because my phone decides to start ringing and not turn off unless I take the battery out and 3am that is very tricky and frustrating.
So I decided to take it to the verizon phone to see if they can fix or replace it and I am tired and sad under the circumstances and the nice gentleman helping me informs me that my phone is eligible for an upgrade! So I got the Iphone 4S. Definitely turned my day around. I had to give him a hug! so I got that and now I am getting ready to head to church. After church, MY roommate and I are going to a friends house to cook dinner. We have a deal with them that If they buy the groceries we will come cook it for them. It’s fun! Also, This week work doesn’t start until 8! So I can have a life this week! YAY!
Well I hope everyone has a blessed sunday.
What I have learned today is that we can’t let others determine how we feel. It’s not healthy. and I know it is so much easier said than done but it’s not worth the time and hassle and emotional drainage that you feel by doing so.
SO just take everything with a grain of salt. Everything will always be ok. and if one person is bitter towards you, just realize that you don’t need them in your life. There are so many people that surround you that love and adore and care about you without them.

Today, I was so fortunate to be able to sleep in!
Update: my date last night went really well. I really enjoyed myself.
Today I cut up chicken with my mom for canning. And then wrote up our ward newsletter.
Then I got ready to go to my High School’s production of Beauty and The Beast with part of my family. It was so fun to see the two little kid’s faces and reactions to theatrics.
Then, I just chilled with a couple pals and now i am eating jack in the box and watching some One Tree Hill before heading to bed!
hope everyone had a good weekend! It’s almost monday… get ready.

Today, I worked and then had a little team party at red robin after work. That was much fun! I really enjoy my life right now… Things are going well… besides health. I am having fun.
I am about to leave on a date… I am nervous but excited too. Hopefully it will just be fun and not awkward. I hate awkward.
Anyways, I hope everyone has a safe friday night!!

Let me just say that God knows me. He knows exactly what I need to succeed and live my life the best way that I can and he sets everything in place to make sure I can do that! This has been testified to me time and time again through so many tender mercies and miracles. I just am amazed sometimes and just so incredibly grateful for the way that the Lord blesses me.
I had a great night tonight hanging out with my little sister! she was so much fun and i really missed her! i enjoyed seeing my whole. minus one brother.
I also went over to a friends house. He ordered my favorite kind of pizza and got my favorite kind of gatorade. it was great. we had really deep convo’s and I am grateful for that friendship.
Time for the weekend! happy almost friday!

It’s the last day of February! I survived! On to march! one more month closer to summer!
Today was a pretty good day! My customers weren’t that bad today and I was able to take a nap when I got home from work. I also did all my laundry, and I would just like to point out the fact that it is pathetic but also very nice that I have enough underwear, socks, and clothing to last me 2 months without repeating anything and not washing the clothes.
I went swing dancing tonight and It was really great to do what I love again. I met some really cool people, and am glad I went. I am looking forward to going more often. However, my heart monitor was going CRAZY. The place was blowing up my phone and my monitor wouldn’t stop beeping. So i finally just unplugged it from my wires… it was frustrating but all in all I had a good night tonight and I am one day closer to the weekend!
I hope everyone is living their life and I just want to point out that things go by much quicker and easier if you look at it from more of a perspective of you own it, it doesn’t own you.
My job for example, I felt that I just spend all day at work and then whatever I could fit in that night i would try to do til It was time to go to bed again and just keep pressing repeat. However, when I changed my perspective to oh I have work but then I have my life outside of work. My though process goes a little like this, “I just need to go take care of some stuff at work and help some people out, and then I need to come home and take care of blank, blank, and blank.” It seems so simple but honestly just looking at it more of the job being a PART of my life rather than my WHOLE life made things a whole lot bearable and life much more enjoyable.
Also, I hope you are doing the very best in all that you take the time to do. A moment gone is moment never returned.
