"Come What May and Love It."

March 24, 2009

To shed some light on the positive, and to apologize for the negative (the president and the female makeup isn't all that bad.....on second thought...it is) REGARDLESS, I feel like some optimism would do me (and everyone else) a little good.

"Make up your mind to be happy-even when you don't have money, even when you don't have a clear complexion, even when you don't have the Nobel Prize. Some of the happiest people I know have none of these things the world insists are necessary for satisfaction and joy. Why are they happy? I suppose it is because they don't listen very well. Or they listen too well-to the things their hearts tell them. They glory in the beauty of the earth...They glory in the love of their families...They glory in the scriptures...
One thing I know for certain: the time we have here goes by far too quickly. Don't waste any more time sitting on the bench watching life pass you by." - Joseph B. Wirthlin

"Not only is there a right to be happy, there is a duty. So much sadness exists in the world that we are all under obligation to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers."
- John Sutherland Bonnell

And last but not least:

"There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that." - India Arie

And as of late, French makes me happy. Especially if it is coming from a cute boy with a cute accent.

A Hymn To Him

March 8, 2009

"A Hymn to Him" from My Fair Lady.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have found an inarguable truth that I would like to share in just a moment....
But before I do, let me just state that what I am about to write is not "peach punch" (thank you fellow blogger for sharing that great word with me)...
***This is a final warning to those of you who are about to read what has been written; take note that this is not , I repeat NOT entitled: A Hymn to Her, nor does it recognize the nobility or character of a woman (which is why I must apologize in advance for dissing my fellow females), but today, today is a day where this is the case.

From the enlightened words of Professor Higgins, I will now bare my livid soul:

Women are irrational, that's all there is to that!
Their heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags!
They're nothing but exasperating, irritating,
vacillating, calculating, agitating,
Maddening and infuriating hags!


Confession Session.

March 1, 2009

New Month.
New Thoughts.
New Confessions for today, March 1, 2009.

1. I want to marry Wes Jurkatis. I've had a crush on him ever since he asked me for a piece of gum in the tenth grade. It's about time I face the depressing fact that I am in love.

2. I cry in every episode of Extreme Home Makeover when they say: "Move that bus!" As the family starts to cry, I cry with them.
Every time.
No exceptions.

3. I religiously watch America's Next Top Model marathons on the Oxygen channel. My dad would disown me if he knew that too.

3. I crave writing like I crave chocolate. It's an addiction.

4. I've wanted to move to Boston my whole life, I just don't know if I'd be brave enough to start my life over.

5. Some days I have a different attitude towards marriage than the rest of the BYU population. Not that I don't want to, or that I think it isn't a wonderful thing - I do...just give me 7 years.

6. One day I want to sit next to a stranger on a park bench and hear their life story.

7. I firmly believe wishes come true - surprise, surprise. I also believe that pinky fingers are as easy to bite off as carrots and that there are men who hide under cars so that they can clip Achilles tendons and then easily take their victim...

8. I am frustrated with the people who say you should live life with no regrets...I think that's really stupid. I regret plenty of things, and because of that, I have learned some really great things.
Life just seems to work out that way.

9. I have always wanted a brother.
When I was little, I would draw "my family" pictures with a little boy up in the clouds (a hint my parents didn't take...) But today I had an epiphany and realized that I actually did have three brothers in heaven, we just came down to earth as best friends.

10. I am especially happy today to know that families can be together forever.

That's all.

Oh, and I am not thrilled at this point with the socialist country our President seems to be turning the U.S. into - just throwing that out there.
