The Classics

I am up late because a friend keeps texting me.
While I wait around for his slow fingers to press the send button, I read articles expressing opinions on who is the best guitarist ever and the best album ever, etc. etc.
This gets me looking up some classic rock artists.
I like classic rock. I like it a lot.
I am currently listening to Us And Them by Pink Floyd. Tonight I have listened to a lot of Led Zeppelin, some Iron Butterfly, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney & Wings, CCR... happiness.

Listen to this! You won't regret it:
And this one as well...

Thank you.
I'm going to tell him to go to bed. I know it's only 11 on the west coast.. but it's nearly 2 here!

From Peru to Michigan Part 2

Mckay called me back again today. We talked for like an hour and a half. So great.

Well... until Mother's Day.

My family has watched Love Actually twice and now we are watching Christmas Vacation.
Such a great Christmas.

From Peru to Michigan

Today I skyped with Mckay. He was in Peru and I could see him! From his chair in the internet cafe he could see the Amazon River. I was in Michigan and he was in the middle of the jungle.
He made fun of me for my Christmas sweater:
I think it is hot.
Things have not changed between us.
I get to talk to him again tomorrow. He told me to come with gossip.
Apparently we have plans to go to Idaho this summer... to his cabin with his family. He said that we have talked about this before, but I don't remember talking about it. We are going in July.

I like him. We are friends. I am happy.
Merry Christmas

I love Organic Chemistry. Love Love Love it. So much so that I am taking it again next semester...

One final left... GENETICS
open book... open note... and I'm still bound to do poorly.

The man... the legend.. is back!

I am not sure if this weekend could get better.
Today Johnny and I were in the Wilk about to depart from one another and who do I see?

This guy:

Ian freakin' Morris.

Ian has been such a blessing to my life and the lives of my close friends. He is one of my best friends for real. I have definitely written about him before on this here blog. He is in town (he lives in D.C.) for dear Kaylie's wedding. He flew all the way out here for that!

We got 5 guys and hung out with Kendra and life was so good.

These are the various facebook photos that I have stolen of Ian and I and our friends.

Tomorrow we are going to see New Moon. One time I went to go see Terminator with him... a little revenge possibly?

Then Saturday Kaylie and LJ are getting married.

So happy.

Monday, November 16, 2009


Kaylie bit my butt. Literally. I have the marks to prove it... although they shall definitely not be put up here.

I have funny friends.
Funny friends that are getting married in 5 days?

This is Kaylie and I on a beach in California from this past summer:

T. Bell

The past two days I have craved Taco Bell during my office hours. Both days I begged someone in my lab to go get some with me... both days I went and got Taco Bell by myself. Hopefully this isn't turning into a daily habit. If so....
I am going to get so fat.


Freakin' yum.

Other than that... the best weekend is coming up. It shall include french toast and temple and a haircut and football and movies and awesome.

May I add the french toast shall be "the best mother f'in french toast ever."
Thank you MC Hammer.

Oh... and listen to this song.

November 1st on...

I give myself rewards if I keep studying.
An example: I allow myself to write a blogpost if I finish writing flash cards from the bacterial pathogenesis slideshow.

I am not self conscious enough in my lab. If I were studying in the
library right now I would be afraid that people would see me on blogger... I would keep studying.
In lab I like to take pictures of myself and write blogs.
Here is my beat up face:

See the bruising? No... Well look at this view instead then.

Yum. Thank you lack of wisdom... teeth.

Here is a picture of me swimming with fish. We all know that I am deathly scared of fish so this picture could never actually happen except with a mac.

I desperately want to get my thoughts out on blogger about certain other things. Let's call said other things "the boy". "The boy" is of course a much nicer term than that used in my apartment. But, I am much too self conscious and I talk about it far too much with my roommates.
Maybe I will develop some... gusto? and speak of said boy... soon.
Sorry roommates.

Even though I had gotten my wisdom teeth out the previous day... I thought it would be a good idea to go out for Halloween.
Claire and I went to a dance with some friends from our old ward.
We were mad scientists... very mad.
Oh, and this is me with my fat wisdom tooth less face.

Friday, October 30, 2009

My wisdom is gone.

Well... my wisdom teeth are gone. I am making the assumption that my wisdom is gone with them.
Next week I have two tests... one in Ochem and one in Infection and Immunity. Hopefully I can be smart again by then.

I will post funny pictures of my fat cheeks soon!

Lab Work

This is what I do in lab... when I am waiting for my project to be done in the incubator of course.

Poor Chris. I almost feel bad for making him play with me instead of working.
Thank you Photobooth.

I'm sick.... again.
I always get an "upper respiratory infection" in the winter, but this is the third time I have been sick this school year. Bleh.
In high school I used to look forward to that time of the fall when I would get an upper respiratory infection. Coach Norgren could hear my barking cough a mile away and I would usually get out of a couple practices or meets. Awesome.
But now all I get is to cough in church and class.. and be embarrassed because I sound like a dying seal.
So today, I will rest.
Good day :)

You you you

This woman always makes me feel like a million bucks.
This woman accepts me for who I am.
This woman helps me to realize my divine potential.
This woman makes me reach for bigger and better things.
This woman is comforting and loving.
This woman is an amazing mother, wife and leader.
This woman exudes how I want to be when I am "grown up."
This woman defines confidence.
This woman shows so much charity.
This woman is so much more than I could ever describe.
She is a leader, a friend, and someone I love.
It's highly unfortunate that the only picture I can find of us is so bad.

Self-fulfilling Prophecy

I opened.
I liked.
I fell.
I ache.

Saturday, October 3, 2009


I was stingy.
I was stingy with the sticky stuff. Claire and I put up a wall of pictures and I was stingy. Now it seems half the wall has fallen down.
I am vulnerable.
Whenever I get to this point in how much I like, I become too vulnerable. I need to remove myself, look outside myself, be objective. I repeat the names over and over in my mind, a broken record of sorts. ___, ___, ___, ___. Hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt. Not again. Thinking about how much this will hurt, how much more this one will hurt, makes me want to stop now. ___,___,___,___... they weren't the same. They didn't tell me things that made me feel good. Giddiness? How long has it been since that was last expressed on my face. Their initiative wasn't always there. It wasn't so easy. Where have I heard this before? "___." I need not worry. Yet, I worry.
I am not sad.
I am scared.

This is not a related picture... but awesome nonetheless.

My iPod is on shuffle and the last four songs have been John Lennon

I have been meaning to write on my blog for a while now... and finally forced myself to do so.
Que the inspirational writing music.
Here we go:

What am I listening to?
-Dr. Dog. Provided by my very best friend Jenna. When I first saw the name did I immediately think it would be rap... perhaps like Dr. Dre? Of course. But, it is not. Listen:

Lately Claire and I have liked moustaches.. Meaning lately I have liked moustaches and forced Claire to put one on as well.

Not too bad right?

Where am I right now?
-I am sitting on the mac in my lab. It is currently my office hours. No one comes to my office hours. Am I okay with that? Absolutely.
What am I going to be doing tomorrow?
-I should be studying this:

Instead I will be apart of this:
On the 4th row... Epic.

How am I feeling?

What am I yearning to be right now? Just take a guess. I know you can already see the picture so it should be easy...
Yes, I googled sister missionary and took this from someone's blog.
Breaking the 20 barrier has made this dream so attainable. So close. Less than a year.

But who knows? After all, in the words of John Lennon, "life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."

As I am watching the end of Armageddon I hear my dear friend Kaylie yell. "Naked naked, I love being naked. Yay naked."

Did this enhance the movie or ruin it? Absolutely enhance it. So great.

I like these girls:

Almost as much as I like this man:

I'm Sad

This is me being sad:

This is why I am sad:
And his death in Pearl Harbor.

This day.

Today I wore my hair up.
Today I put on the first clothes I touched.
Today I ate a sandwich for breakfast.
Today I looked like a slob.
Today I spent 6 hours in lab.
Today I received a package in the mail.
Today I felt unenthusiastic.
Today I felt normal.
Today I felt plain.
Today I was there.
Which is a fine day to me.

The Lookout House

I can't wait to write this until any kind of plan is finalized.
I am ecstatic.
It seems to me as things might work out.
Then Kaylie said I could possibly get a job at her work.
Even the possibility is making me pee my pants in anticipation.
I am worried that it seems as though these blessings are coming to me with virtually no work on my part... what kind of a price will I have to pay in the long run?
Ughhhhhhhhh.... not to think about now.
So many blessings and happiness in life right now :)

Mr. F

Well.. actually Mr. Een.
As an apartment we discussed this last night. If not for any other reason, we think Ian is the reason we moved into the Enclave. This man, who has been a brother to all of us, has blessed our lives in incomprehensible ways.
So thank you Ian. Thank you for being so close to the Spirit. Thank you for being our protector. Thank you for letting us complain about the trivial things of life. Thank you for always showing you care. Thank you for the blessings you give. Those blessings which we know came straight from the Lord. Thank you for making the best cookies ever. Thank you for just jokingly poking our legs after we eat said cookies. Thank you for all the movie nights. Thank you for letting us drag you to dinner and to the roller skating rink. Thank you for the talks that go far beyond what we can talk about with most others. Thank you for being so strong. Thank you for showing us how a priesthood holder should act. Thank you for the respect and love you always show us. Thank you Ian for the water fights. No matter how much we appear to detest you after... Thank you for playing with us. Thank you for your friendship. Thank you Ian, for you.

The Friend Zone

The movie Just Friends describes this concept perfectly. The friend zone is a frightening place that is nearly impossible to escape from. The friend zone sucks. According to Just Friends you have to lose a lot of weight and become very successful in order to escape this zone. I am doomed... not that I am being melodramatic or anything.

all out fun

Today at the advisement of Brian, while looking through failblog I came upon this:

Oh you Provo hooligans...
