Friday in San Antonio

I've become grossly aware that I have no friends. No, no, I'm not looking for pity. I don't want any sympathy texts or appalled gasps. This is life. You see, I have tons of acquaintances. I run around town and can almost always find a familiar face to exchange a hello with, but I don't have anyone (with the exception of my roommates) that will call me up on the weekends to go do crazy fun things. It's okay. I'm getting used to it. I always find myself feeling like a loner at the beginning of the semester. Anyway, things will change once the semester settles down. The moral of this story is that I've become a mooch. I mooch friends off of my roommates, which, bless their hearts, means I tag along on their fun adventures. This weekend we drove to a little town called Saint Anthony, or "San Antonio" if you served your mission in Mexico! Bowling with the whole place to ourselves? Well, don't mind if we do!
We got some AWESOME bowling shoes to wear. Unlike the kind
given out at more ritzy establishments, these make you look like
a genuine clown. 

We are so cute. I'm wearing purple pants

Mariah and I! Roommates for life!

Chapter 66- Mi amiga

Although my sister hacked my blog (grr) or maybe I left it open on my computer (dumb) NEVERTHELESS, everything she said is true... especially the part about her smelling cool.
Also, she's going on a mission.
When she first told me that she was going to serve the Lord for 18 months as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I was heartbroken. She and I are very very, and let me emphasize that, VERY different people but I just love her. My mom says that she wishes she could have stuck us in a bag together when we were little and shaken us up so that we wouldn't be so opposite, but come on, that's what makes things exciting! Whereas I'm disorganized and crazy, Amanda is a tip top perfectionist who's completely in touch with her emotions. It makes things difficult at times to say the least, but I love her more often than I don't (that's a joke, I always love her) and even though we drive each other crazy we're crazy for each other.
Now I am SO ecstatic for her to serve! She quite possibly has one of the strongest testimonies I've ever seen and she lets that light shine to everyone. Amanda is so sensitive to the Spirit! Starting on July 5th, she will be sharing herself, yes not just her testimony but her whole person, with the people of Lubbock, Texas. They had better count their lucky stars because she's going to be sorely missed. Sorely. Missed. As in, I'm probably just going to run around punching people whenever I'm feeling sad without her and then they are going to be sore because she's missed. Get it? Anyway, it's going to be a long, but wonderful eighteen months without her and I really do just love this insane woman.
LOOK! we match

I'm definitely wearing her clothes in this picture. She's the best. 

She left to China for four months my senior year of high school.
When she told me she was going on a mission I said, "You can't!
You already went to China." Come to find out, that doesn't actually
count. Now she's going to have a real adventure in the heat of Texas.
Yuck. I'd take rice and chopsticks any day over that. 
pretend my hair isn't nasty nast- it had been a long day

In different Houses, yet still friends. Isn't that nice? 

Chapter 65- Beginning of Semester Ponderings

What is one thing that is holding me back from reaching my full capacity as a student, friend, sister, daughter, nurse, roommate, etc?
What is something I need to change so that I can fulfill my academic and spiritual potential?

A Little Shout Out

To my favorite sister Amanda. She is just the bomb. She is so pretty and nice and smart and lovely and she smells good and cool and is articulate and funny and patient and loving and gorgeous and well cultured and cute and healthy and darling and brave and always on the ball and fun and caring and well dressed and motivated and beautiful and giving and awesome and my role model.
If you guys don't know her you are missing out!

Chapter 64- So....

I'm sitting here on my couch listening to the rain trickle down the big living room window watching Kindergarten Cop and burning up with boredom. Why do I have NO friends? Seriously, everyone else in the world is still in school therefore they are busy doing homework or other school related things. Here I am dying. I've reached the point where I've scrounged my house in search of food three times now. Pathetic? yes. 

A few thoughts-
Arnold, my dear Austrian body builder turned Governor, is NOT very good looking. Big muscles? oh yes. Chiseled features? very much. Attractive? nope.
It has got to be about a million degrees in here. 
Commercials are getting more and more pitiful. Sometimes I lose hope in humanity.
Chris Pine= sexy man. 
If Zac Efron and Chris Pine were in a movie together I would die. My heart honestly would just give out and  BAM- I would die. Dead. 
I still haven't seen Titanic.
I miss the 90s.
Being the person that makes jingles for companies would be SO freaking sweet. I would be terrible at it, but come on now, life would be AWESOME! (imagine that in a sing songy tone).
I want redheaded children.
My gum has no flavor.
I want frozen yogurt but it's 11 so everywhere is closed.
Fatty fatty two by four can't get through the bathroom door!
WOAH! The kid from Skype is getting old- low voice and all!
Swack- sweaty back
DVR probably was the best invention ever in the whole period period amen.
10 points for Gryffindor.
I secretly miss old school police cars. 
Sean from Psych has gotten chubby. It makes me a little bit sad. He was quite the hottie twenty pounds ago.

Chapter 63- Clips of Conversation

"Just stare into his dreamy eyes and ask yourself, 'Could I do this for the rest of eternity?' and if the answer's yes- which I'd say yes- just look into that blue dreamy abyss... Oh boy... then kiss him right then and there!! And he'll say Marry me!"

"Forget the education; become a babysitter instead."

"Can we make nasty green smoothies this spring?"

"Just walk up and yell at him! Then I'll step in and say you have Tourettes and then he will bad and won't be able to say no to going out with you."

"Do you believe in polyandry?"

"What about the basketballs attached to his chest?"
                              "I feel like they would mold perfectly around my head when I'm hugging him..."

"Today is a lipstick kind of day."
