today was a good day, dear blog. i woke up and had to shower in 10 second intervals because that was all the hot water was good for before turning cold, and my first class was canceled. it was nice, because i was becoming concerned that i was beginning to die of swine flu (i've had symptoms lately... including throwing up a few times monday). i took a nap on a couch at our student union building until my next class started. as that class passed i began to feel better. after that class ended, i sat and talked with a guy who has become a really good friend for an hour. then when i walked to the library to wait for a scholarship interview, it started to snow (woo!!). i sat by a window and didn't get hardly any work done because i just stared outside watching the flakes fall. i walked to my scholarship interview with my jacket hood on but my face turned up; snowflakes got stuck in my eyelashes. i couldn't help but grin ear to ear. i passed people on the sidewalk who were wincing and grimacing and looking anything but pleased, and i felt sad that they weren't loving the snow as much as i was. there are only 42 days until christmas. bring on the snow mother nature, bring on the snow!

and then i ended up reading mylifeisaverage.com for 2 hours. plus i changed my facebook profile picture. and i talked to a boy for the first time really in two years--he's been out of the country serving a mission for his church. we decided that when i go back to my hometown for the christmas holidays, we're going to go on a date. i was one of the last girls from my home town that he took on a date before being gone for two years, and it was probably one of the most fun dates i had in high school. needless to say, i'm looking forward to getting to hang out with the kid again. the funny thing is, that since he's been gone from school for a while, we are now both at the same year academically, even though i'm a few years younger. it's cool to feel like you are as old as someone who always seemed to be just ahead of you.

Monday, November 2, 2009
means that though my body thinks it is 2 am right now, it is actually only 1 am. and in the morning, when it is actually 9 am, it will feel like 10 am. not too shabby, eh?
i've decided that i no longer want to be a "city girl". over the last year, i've come to love and embrace the country style of life. i had some exposure in the first few years of my life, having extended family living in some rural places. but now i get a lot of it, pretty much every day. i love country. i want to be a redneck!!
and now i'm going to bed because my body thinks it is 3 am.
maybe someday i will tell you my analogy of how telling boys you like them is like playing baseball.
