new friend

so you know how i always have fifty million crushes plus two? well one of them was named david. he's a really spiffy guy in my ward with brilliantly red hair (can't beat that). so i liked him and he's in my FHE group. i never got super close to him though because i liked him, but then one day i was talking to him and found out he had a girlfriend and i was like oh that sucks (which is weird because i never would have done anything about it anyway). but so now that he's taken i've been able to become his friend and he's doing my a favor by playing the piano for me for my voice class and i helped him out with some service projects he was in charge of and now we're just like good friends and i really enjoy talking to him. he's 23 (danny's age) and he has a little sister my age (but he actually thought i was older, which is a miracle because no one thinks i am older) so i don't know. something that sucked has now turned into something much better because i never would have gotten to know him if i still liked him. (because i'm weird like that) but no yeah he thought i acted older than 19, but he did admit that i looked younger than 19. lol i don't think i'll ever look my age but that's okay there are worse problems i could have,
i love suzy boyce!

no freaking way

so i open my mail and a nice bill for the phone company pops out. they want $110. oh my gosh. are they serious? okay so in january i try to get a landline right? i go and buy a phone and then i wait for a month but they still haven't activated it and they go oh sorry someone put a hold on your account. and i'm like okay why? then they find out that they wrote my address down wrong but never called me to find out what my real address is. so they push the date back and say that they'll have it activated some time in february. well february comes and goes and it's still not connected so at this point i'm like whatever nevermind. i still check my phone like every other day to make sure there still isn't a dial tone. now i get this bill in the mail but i have never even used the phone. so i'm like how can they charge me out of the blue when i don't even have a dial tone. so i go around the house plugging my phone into other phone sockets and lo and behold one of them does have a dial tone. screwed. so i've had it this whole time without using it or knowing it but i still have to pay the phone company 110 dollars. peeps it's the end of the month and the end of the semester i don't have that kind of spare cash lying around.
i am severly ticked off.

so i'm definitely a social eater. i think that that might be unhealthy for me. apparently it is the most healthy to eat like five or six small healthy meals a day rather than three big ones, so i imagine it's even worse to just eat one big one a day... i just don't have a lot of time to eat, or rather i don't feel like making time for it. things will be different next semester though because my new roommate diana is definitely going to make me eat more regularly. she's a cool girl.
i'm just chillaxin' at christian's house right now. we went to eat and now we're waiting for his family to call him so we can go get diana and go (you'll never guess) latin dancing. shocker. do i do anything else on the weekends?
yeah so don called again. i'm definitely going on a date with him tomorrow. i was kind of trying to avoid it because i don't know. i was just trying to avoid it but he called me again so yeah. i'm sure it will be fun though. he invited me to do something with him tonight, but i already had plans and i think two nights in a row might be a little over done. yeah though... now i'm just rambling. okay i'm stopping

um yeah

the weather is back down in the 50s and 40s this week which is a brutal plummet because it's been up in the 60s and beautiful.
so i can't decide what to do this summer
go to mexico?
stay in provo until the weddings and get a job here that will transfer to muncie?
go to maine with amy, al, and nichole and work in a greenhouse?
spend the entire four months in muncie and find a job?

i want to go home but i don't know how much fun home will be with half of my friends gone and my sister in maine. but then i don't think i'm ready to spend an entire year and a half away from home right away.

every spring i always get the desire to run. i think it's because there is too much track in my history. the weather is just perfect for running, not too cold, not too hot. however, man the air is a lot thinner up here in the high altitude. and there isn't really a good time to go running. on mondays and wednesdays my day starts at 7:20, on tuesdays and fridays they start at 6:20, and on thursdays they start at 8:20. so if i wanted to run in the morning i would have to wake up really early and then be tired in my first classes. then i don't get done with classes with never longer than a one hour break until 6 on mondays, 5 on wednesdays and thursdays, and 3 on tuesdays. however on tuesdays i have dance lab and salsa club and on wednesdays i have stake institute and on mondays i have FHE. so the only time i could run is like late at night. unfortunately i live really close to downtown and it's dangerous out at night in my neighborhood a young girl by herself. so... i just sit around wanting to run. i was on campus tonight and i ran some, but it just wasn't the same because i had my purse with me and that's just awkward. anyway. i love running... and being in shape...
don't you?

wow it's easy to waste time online

so yeah... someone left me a long stemmed red rose on my front porch... they didn't sign the card. it says "Michelle -- Just thinking about you!! Have a great day!" gr... not signed. jerk. lol i guess i should just be happy and let it make me smile like i'm sure it was intended for but i'm really frustrated that i can't thank anyone for it. soo... i'll thank all of you?

yeah so after FHE i went to my friend renata's house to talk to her and all of a sudden my roommate calls asking me where i am. turns out one the guys in my FHE group went over to my house to talk to me or something because he thought when i left FHE i went home. well yeah so then i thought my roommate was coming to pick me up but they decided to let the guy pick me up instead. so i walk outside expecting them but it's definitely him and he definitely did not drive. he rollerbladded... so he handed me my cousin's SIZE 10 rollerblades to wear (i'm a size 5...) i stood up and fell right over. it was painful. once i got used to wearing skates twice as big as my feet i was fine and it was fun. it was *gasp* a nice surprise. the weather was perfect and it was kind of fun and spontaneous -- creative. but yeah he's a nice friend i hope he doesn't like me as more than a friend. he does speak portuguese though so he's a cool friend. lol i hope all y'all have a great evening!

dance with me . . . make me sway

the best dancer at the club danced with me last night! and he asked if he could dance with me again sometime! sweet. i also met this really cool bolivian and this really cool mexican. my friends went out to eat with their friends after the dance (so like three in the morning). lol thank goodness for 24 hour service!
my aunt cyndy is in utah right now. she flew in last night. she's the mom of the my two roommates. so yeah that will be cool. i haven't spent as much time with her as my other aunts because she lives in texas, but hey it'll be cool. i might even enjoy all of the wedding planning that's going to be going on. melissa asked me to be one of her bridesmaids!!!!!!! lol, all of a sudden now that i'm a part of it the weddings don't bother me so much. lol people are funny.
oh yeah and the weather has been in the upper fifties all last week so i've been super happy! i can even handle the fact that ball state has spring break and i don't! lol i love you!!!!

i have a dream

so i had a little free time and i was curious about the martin luther king, jr. speech. so i read it. it made me cry. wow. have you guys ever read all of the words and thought about the meaning behind them? i tell you what, powerful.


no seriously people. okay so i'm working on a research paper right? i go to the periodicals and i think i just made the amount of photocopies that could kill an adult oak tree. so then i'm looking for some other books... i am not sure where they are so i got to the third (main/ground) floor to ask at the information desk. well the person isn't there and it says to go ask your questions at a different desk, but there were too many people at the other desk and i didn't have the guts to go up to it because i never have before so i decide that i'm an intelligent blonde, surely i can figure out the library system on my own. so i look at a map and decide that the books i want are on the first floor. i'm there looking for the call numbers in the F section, but the ones i want are in the 300s and all i can find are the 3000s and the G section so i'm thinking man how weird i must be in the wrong place. so then i decide that maybe i'm supposed to be on the fifth floor. so i walk up all of the stairs to be a healthy girl and the books are definitely not on the fifth floor. so i check out the map again and i'm thinking man they have to be on the first. but i'm dead tired and annoyed so i take the elevator down and have my normal anxieties of the elevator killing me. so i get to the first floor and i look at the map again and i'm like man the only F call numbers are right where i was before. so i walk towards it and decide to start using my brain. i realize that the alphabet goes A B C D E F G. so the reason that i could only find really high F numbers and really low G numbers is because i was on the wrong side of the F section. flipping idiot. so i walk to the correct part of the F section (near the E's genius since it's a low number) and i find exactly where the books are supposed to be, but hmmm... they're both checked out. which i could have known if i had scrolled down longer on the webpage that i got their call numbers from. so this took me a really long time and well... i'm about ready to dye my hair brown after this experience.

i'm sorry if what i wrote didn't make sense because i think i forgot to use punctuation sometimes...

You are quite aware of your needs now and yet you aren't sure the best way to get them fulfilled. The problem is that what you want is out of character for you, yet you'll need to communicate your desires. Even if you tend to be shy, you have the potential to surprise yourself and others by acting impulsively. Something within you is struggling to get out into the open. Don't hold it back.

wow i had no idea... lol. i think horoscopes are fun to read every now and then. oh yeah, mine above is for cancer (just in case you are too) i think that this one if kind of true though.

sometimes i don't understand the interactions between boys and girls. (who does??)

"She's great. I mean, she's -- she's smart, she's beautiful, she's funny, she's-- she's a big old scaredy cat. If -- if you creep up from behind her, she'll jump out of her skin. It's -- it's pretty amusing. Umm -- she's honest. She just calls 'em just like she sees 'em. Can always count on getting the truth from Joey, even if the truth hurts. She's stubborn. We fight a lot. She could be so frustrating sometimes. It's -- but she's a really, really good friend. I mean, loyal to a fault. She's -- she believes in me. And I'm a dreamer, so I mean, it's so good to have somebody like that in my life. God, if she goes away, I don't know what I'm gonna do. I mean, she's -- she's my best friend, you know? She's -- she's more than that. She... she's everything."

courtney i'm glad you had such a happy day today!!

so yeah. i'm in a vocal skills class right now and we had our first in class performance today. one of my friends was my accompanist and well... she didn't start practising the music until yesterday and she decided it was too hard so she spent last night writing a new version and then well... lets just say it didn't go to well today in class. my professor came up to me afterwards to ask what was going on and i had to explain things and i think he'll be more lenient when he's grading my performance. i hope so at least. she started out the tempo wrong at the beginning so it was too fast and it sounded awful and i was trying to figure out what was wrong so i didn't concentrate and i forgot the words so i had to start over again. the second time through i just sang it and completely ignored everything she was playing... which is pretty bad too. oh man. it was really disasppointing. i hope i can find someone else for next time. it sucks because she's one of my really good friends to so i don't want to hurt her feelings. maybe if i had given the music to her sooner. i only gave it to her with like a week to practice. i asked her about a month ago but then i lost my planner and i couldn't remember when i had to perform and i asked my friend that was in the class and she said that it wasn't for another two weeks and then last week the teacher was like it's next week so i gave my friend the music on friday but she didn't even look at it until tuesday, but hey that happens. i was unprepared so she was unprepared. i feel like i'm missing apart of my body without my agenda though. EVERYTHING that i am supposed to do is written in there! agh!

happy birthday to jacob nicholas yesterday! big 17!!!

dance with me... make me sway

this one's for the guys

okay so i had a few complaints from guys so here's one for you guys...

We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules!
Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...Really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; but did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.
