Stuff You Can Read..

Hello friends! (hopefully you're all friends and not random creepers..)

Here's the deal. It's November.. and I've got to make another addition to my blog. The only problem is I don't have much to say, cause not a lot has changed since the last time I wrote.


I do have pictures I can put up.. but they aren't very exciting. Except a couple.. yeah. I'll go get my camera and load those babies on here.



Alright, so all of these are from earlier this evening.. First I went to Lundy's house because it's his birthday today.. which calls for the world-renowned Lundyburgers. I don't think I'm supposed to tell the world how to make them.. but I have pictures, so you can see for yourself.












Believe me.. I know. Don't ask me how it's possible to eat that.. cause I honestly don't know. I've never tried. This is Dan's. hehehe...




And here, Dan proves it's not only possible to shove it in your mouth... (and I'm too lazy to turn it the right way.. just tilt your head.)



But he can swallow it AND get it all over his face, too! How impressive!

(And I don't think he'll ever forgive me for putting that beautiful picture of him on my blog for all the world to see.. but I think it's worth it.)

After Lundy's I went to my ward's FHE.. where the surprised us with a service activity. It was actually kind of fun.. We had a list of things we were supposed to do for people.. and my group should have won but Chelsey's group cheated. (and I know I'm being a sore loser.. but if I feel like I deserve something, it's hard for me to let go. haha..)

After we returned from serving.. we had root beer floats, which were delicious.

Other than that, I swear nothing has happened in my life. Yesterday we went up to Morgan to visit our grandparents and aunts and uncles and all.. It was interesting. I think my family is starting to realize that I'm not mute and I tell jokes pretty well.. so they keep asking me to quote Comedians.. (Demetri Martin in particular. Careful what you watch of his.. he's a potty-mouth.) Anyway, I quoted for them for a while and then my grandpa took me to his computer to show me his funny videos.. haha. They were pretty good, I have to admit. I recommend this one : www.peteyandpetunia.com/VoteHere/VoteHere.htm

Anyway, while he was showing me these videos, I heard some interesting noises coming from the room next to us.. and I found all of my cousins. I think the average age for my cousins on my mom's side is 3. Okay.. so maybe the maturity level is around there.. even if the actual age is a little higher. Anyway, they were playing a game that my friends call the "Animal Game" where you pick an animal and if someone calls your animal the person in the middle tries to hit you before you say another person's animal. It's really a fun game, so i thought I'd join them. I realized too late that my cousins are all sadistic and wanted to hit each other as hard as possible with the newspaper we were playing with. It was kind of ridiculous.. but funny to watch. My animal was porcupine.. which is a difficult word for Morgan folk.. so my animal didn't get called much and I enjoyed the entertainment. It made me realize how incredibly mature my siblings and I were compared to them. (At least from what I remember... hehehe... I'm sure others would beg to differ.)

Alright.. So i'm looking for a new job. Modest is cutting back hours.. and I want to work. Also, money in my savings account would be nice. Any ideas? I applied at a pre-school photography place.. but I don't think I'll get that job. She wanted a lot of experience and I'm only just out of high school.. yeah. Anyway. That's kind of what I'm looking for. Something I enjoy but won't be extremely easy (and thus, boring). Something I can learn from.. etc. Yeah. I just want a new job.

Also.. I'm starting to realize how boring life is at the moment. I mean, it's not like I don't do anything, cause I do. I have a church calling, I play frisbee, I hang out with friends. Life is just predictable, routine, and boring. I'm getting the urge to go backpacking across Europe or something. I just want to do something crazy and for myself. This sounds stupid, but I want to do something that people don't think is smart. Backpacking, for example. Everyone kind of thinks that people that don't save their money or do things without planning are flakey and dumb or whatever, but I think sponteousness is cool. The ability to do something for fun or just pure enjoyment is what everyone aims for in life, isn't it? So.. i think it would be exciting and rewarding. But I'll probably never do it.

I need ideas for my research paper. I want to do something dorky like ninjas, pirates (thanks anna), nasal spray, etc.. Something I can laugh at and enjoy learning about at the same time. Any ideas?

GOALS:

  • I'm going to try harder to enjoy the situations I'm in
  • I'm going to try to meet new people by intoducing myself.. which is really hard for me.
  • I'm going to make some cool dinners for the fam.
  • I'm going to decide what I want to do for the next several months.. school, work, etc..
  • I'm going to be more patient with family.

Quote Time!
