The rest of my life can't compare to this night.
And only the heartaches have given me sight.
They bring me to you.

to do

I need to remind myself quite often to not judge so quickly, and off of such stupid stuff as well.
Remember that girl that Gay held hands with? Well, I called her today and she came over and I cried to her and she listened. She helped me so much. I had felt so strong before and realized that I wasn't, I was hurting. She helped me figure out that hurt and figure out how to feel better. I felt a little resentment towards her when he chose her; when he chose her over me. But, now I love her. I do.

So, Katie, please don't hate on people so easily. You will probably end up loving them.

And the reason I was crying had nothing to do with Gay, please give me a little more credit than to think that.

Annnnnnnnnnd. Good pictureFacebook request by my mom with annotations by Jenna.

It's gonna be an expensive summer

This summer I am supposed to be saving up to go on a mission... welp, that's not gonna work out well.
You see... two of my best friends are getting married. Unfortunately neither is getting married in Utah.

1:Erin just got engaged. She is getting married in June in the Detroit Temple. It's crazy to me that I introduced Erin to the Church and she is going through the Temple before me. I am so jealous, but so so so so so happy and proud of her for making this decision. So, I guess I am going home for a weekend in June! Hopefully it is a weekend after finals and possibly between spring and summer semesters, so I don't go crazy!

Claire got engaged on her birthing day. She is getting married July 10th in the Seattle Temple. So, I get to go to Seattle for a weekend and see her!

Who needs this 'till death do we part' stuff? When I get married I am going to do as these girls are and it will last forever!

So, let's see... that's around $500 spent on plane tickets. So, a little more than a month out on the mish? I guess they'll have to send me home a month early!

On a side note... the boy I talked to on Christmas, he gets home July 1st. That's a little over 3 months away. Three months ago I was starting this semester! It's gone by so fast.

Annnnnnnnnnnnd I am living with this girl this summer:

An interesting summer awaits.

I'm naked

It's my office hours. Dr. Grose, Steve and I are looking at some failed experiments. I see the lights before I hear the sound. The fire alarm goes off. Annoyed, we grab a couple things and get ready to leave the building. Should I really bring my cell phone? Might as well... but my backpack is far too heavy to bring outside if I am going to bring it back up really quick. Last time the alarm went off we were outside for 10 minutes total.
Outside the grass feels good as we lay in it and eat our lunch. I'm wearing a skirt today and the sun feels great on my white legs. Soon, a girl who needs help in the class I ta for comes up and we instruct her on the materials in the upcoming test. I realize that I should be preparing for my review tonight, but there will be time to do that once we get back in the building.
30 minutes pass. 45. 1 hour. When are we going back in?
A man walks by carrying pink signs and he tapes them to the doors of the building. What do the signs say? Someone go look at the signs.
"Building closed for rest of the day. 03/22/10"


All my stuff is in there. We devise a plan to get back in. All the professors left their laptops and car keys and glasses. Surely they will let the professors back in to grab their stuff. No go. No one is allowed in.

So, here I sit in the LRC. It is stuffy and packed. I have to prepare a review that is going to suck, I can feel it. I have no backpack, no chemistry book, no notebook. I feel naked. Now I understand why Ian walked around campus with an empty backpack. Don't worry that I'm giving a presentation tomorrow in Parasitology and have two tests as well.
