I woke up in a rotten mood Christmas morning because that dumb story was etched in my subconscious so deep that I had not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different dreams throughout the night! Every time I went back to bed after waking up (laughing at myself), I fell right back into the same dream sequence but a different story line. Blah. I just wanted to enjoy my evening. I would have willingly allowed for some great Edward/man-of-my-dreams dreams but not about wolves and vampires coming to destroy the people I love that resulted in a war in my classroom. I am just going to go to bed tonight hoping I dream about saffron rolls because thats all I did/made/thought about/ate all day.

I have to be honest, I was a little worried that the day would be a bust. I missed momma and daddy, I got some pretty bad news on birthday eve, and I didn't know what the school day had in store for me. Birthday greatness started off the day before with a beautiful delivery of flowers from Joshy. They were so gorgeous! Thank you son, you really don't even know what that did for me. Then I arrived at school on the day of all days - November 20 - and was showered with gifts from my students. That wasn't expected. Here is a candy poster one of my favorite students made for me:I got some very sweet cards, delicious candy, amazing renditions of happy birthday from screaming and off key teenagers, lunch from Janet, flowers from Heidi, balloons from Mom and Dad, Red Mango with my ladies, and kindness from my kids. All in a days work! The flowers and balloons continually being delivered to my room was a little embarassing but just the sweetest things ever. And my kids really were nice to me! They quieted down and sushed each other with "hey, be quiet now because its her birthday. its the only day we have to be quiet."
After school I met up with the fam for a birthday dinner at Spag Fag. I returned home to magic muffins (it was no longer too soon) from Leslie that I literally devoured. I had some friends come and eat cake and ice cream with me. I must thank Leslie, Alisha, Ashton, Chris, Lani, Heather, Jessica, Kyle, all of the brothers, Justin, Laura, Kyle, Chalet, Paul, and my VT for helping me celebrate the big 23! Big thanks to the fam for putting up with me for the last 23 years. You are all the best.

No not me folks, my MOMMA! My mother, Elizabeth, is the most amazing woman that has ever graced the human world. Today is her birthday and I want the entire world (because I know the entire world reads this blog) to know that I love her. She is pretty, kind, loving, patient, adorable, beautiful, magnanimous, awesome, smart, funny, precious, and my mom! I wish I could be with her today but she decided to go on a mission instead. I miss her everyday, all day. I love her with all my heart and soul and thats a lot because I have a really big heart people. My mom was born into this world to be a mom. And more importantly, she was born to be my mom. I love you momma. Thanks for being born and also for having me even when daddy wanted to be done having kids. I hope you enjoyed the "Happy Birthday" rendition from my 9th graders. LOVE YOU!

"Communism is a classroom based on common overall good ships"
-supposed to be: Communism is a classless society based on common
ownership of goods
"Its like in Utah where they like only sell alcohol with like a .03 percent likker (liquor) and the other states sell .05."
- in an essay comparing Judaism and Islam
Basically, grading them was rough but so funny. I definitely learned my lesson that I can't throw them into an essay test and expect a). that they would be able to produce good writing, b). that I could easily grade them on time (its been 6 weeks and I still have 50 essays left to grade before midterms are due on Tuesday). Oops. I am just figuring this teaching thing out. Can ya tell?
Saturday, November 15, 2008
1. Corey. Yes folks, I am talking about it now. Its fine. I had vowed to not talk about it really, especially to our mutual friends because I didn't want them to feel awkward, mad, or sad. But I was talking to my friend Justin today and he suggested that the only way to move on is to put everything on the table, get over my feelings, and so here I am blogging about it. We were best friends, we dated, we broke up. Thats the reality. Did it brake my heart? Yes. Do I miss him? Yes. Have I been on dates since? Yes and boy are those some interesting stories! Am I over him? No but trying and getting close.
2. Zumba. This one is still too soon in the sense that I still suck at it. Zumba is my new passion thanks to Miss Jensen (my partner in crime - we teach Geography together). She is an amazing teacher and I am so, so grateful I get to work with her (and of course you too Cameo but you need to come to Thursday Zumba). She was in the education program with me at BYU and I followed her to Orem Junior where her aerobic influence enticed me to try out her favorite class: Zumba. Zumba is just a lot of latin dancing to loud latin music. And its really fun and really hard. Cameo and I went a couple months ago and I fell in love. I now kind of stalk Allison and go to all of her Zumba classes I can get my hands on. She even has me listening to Zumba music in my car. Trying to Zumba in the car is quite a challenge but so worth it. Try one of her classes out if you can because I have a testimony of it. I am trying to peer pressure Allison into making a DVD for me because 3 times a week isn't enough. I will keep working on her until I get the result I want. I just need to say that Zumba has changed my life. I have since turned Leslie and Alisha into Zumba junkies as well. Holla Zumba!
3. Grandma. This one is definitely too soon because I can't even talk about. Grammy has cancer for the third time and it is so hard for me to watch. She is the most amazing example of faithful perseverance. Even on her worst days full of vomiting, tears, and a very tired body, she is so happy, kind, and chatty. Nothing can slow her down. I just pray everyday that Heavenly Father can keep her here for a long time because I am selfish. I am not ready to say goodbye. I couldn't go through that with my parents gone. She has surgery in a week to hopefully release her of some of the pain she is in daily. I hope it works and that she can go on with life the way she deserves. I love my grammy and watching her continually fight makes me so grateful. I will never give up on my love of breast cancer because one day, no one will not have to go through what my grammy has.

This is a really interesting BC month for me for many reasons. My grandmother is battling this disease again for the 3rd time. She is such a trooper, it is amazing. She drove all the way down to Provo by herself in the middle of a treatment period to come to my graduation. It meant the world to me - she means the world to me. I also have a student whose mother died of breast cancer 3 months ago. She is the most precious individual. She had to come to picture day in tears because she didn't have a mom at home to help her pick out an outfit and do her hair. Nobody should face that reality. I brought her a little gift pack of BC paraphernalia a couple weeks ago and she just lit up at the thought that someone else cares and kind of understands. She is a gem and I know she was put into my class for a reason - to have a friend who cares. This year I live with Alisha whose mother had breast cancer. They worship awareness at their house too and celebrating this month with her makes it pretty special as well.
Be sure to stop by Nordstrom or Macey's to pick up some free breast cancer pink ribbons. Wear them in support of someone you know who has dealt with this disease in their life (if you are reading this and you know me then thats someone you know already...kind of a stretch but it works). When you are at the grocery store and see an item with the pink ribbon on it, buy it because that small purchase automatically donates money to the cure. And let me tell you people, we WILL find a cure! Tis the Season!

- 6:05 am: wake up angry (mornings are not really my thing)
- 7:20 am: leave for work and enjoy my 15 minute drive while trying to pump myself up for the day ahead of me
- 7:40 - 8:10: try and get my day in order and water my plant (the most beautiful plant ever that my mom and dad sent me on my first day of school and I haven't managed to kill yet)
- 8:15 - 11:30: something along the lines of teaching kids
- 11:30 - 12:00: adult interaction for the day with lunch in the faculty room
- 12:00 - 2:45: again, some more of that teaching stuff with a little yelling here and there
- 2:45 - 6-ish: meetings (faculty meetings, district meetings, accommodations meetings, collaboration meetings, curriculum meetings...) help students after school, planning, making copies, grading, organizing, etc.
- 7:00pm: usually arrive home around this time with little or no energy
- 7:30 - 10:00: attempt to socialize with my friends that I never see anymore, do some more lesson planning, make my roommates and friends help me grade, get crap done for my calling, eat something that resembles a meal, internet and read my daily email from Glenn Beck, and literally crawl into bed and fall asleep no later than 11 because the 200 kids in my life have taken all the life out of me!

I love the Oregon Trail game but frankly, who doesn't? Its awesome. As I visited Washington/Oregon to see my parents, I was reminded of the glorious game that aided in my childhood awkwardness and obesity. As you can tell from the post below, my parents really like me and even more so, my dad likes taking me places that only the two of us would find interesting. Well another stop on our trail was the real Oregon Trail. Dad and I went to the Whitman Mission National Historic Site (if you want to hear the story of the Whitmans I will tell you because its pretty cool) and stood right on the trail. There was even this old wagon still on the trail. Some people are pretty lazy I guess because they've had like 150 years to finish the trek, geez. Anyway, it was pretty fun to see, especially with my inquisitive history buff dad.

Do you feel bad for me yet? You should! I would put a picture up of what my foot looks like without the bandage but I don't think you want to see it. Personally, I haven't even seen what it looks like because bodily trauma is not my thing. But the nasty description I got from my family and seeing the toenail that the doctor removed was enough. Heidi and Josh helped me to the ER where the doctor (who reminded me very much of Sydney Herring, the uber-happy doctor on Grey's Anatomy) tied on a tourniquet and injected two needles into my very tender toe. I will spare you anymore details other than to say it's seriously messed up and my little nail may never grow back. The most horrifying part of this whole ordeal is that I love my toes. You can ask anyone what my favorite body part is and toes will be the reply. In fact I was just having a conversation with Corey the other day about how pretty my feet are and how I have perfect toes. He even agreed with me and if you know us, we don't agree on much. Now many of you may be wondering how this actually occurred. I cannot tell you because I do not know. All that happened was that I slipped while stepping into the pool and I was holding my nephew Bennett. The next thing I knew I was in utter agony while my family looked on with disgusted faces at what was left of my beautiful middle toe.

Allison: "Who has Betty?"
Kathy: "Betty who? Oh, Betty. How could I forget??"
Cameo: "Oh no, Allison you have Betty."
Allison: "Okay. As long as I don't have Mary."
(long pause as they search for Mary)
Cameo: "Sorry Ashley."
Me: "I don't think I want Mary."
Lets just say that looking at the class lists was not a fun ordeal for me as they would come upon a student that they were sorry to say was in my class. Oh crap. Hopefully the students don't drive me to insanity. But honestly, I am really excited. I'm sure it doesn't seem like it but whatever they give me, I can handle. I will take it like a teaching champ because thats what I am.

"We just took off from the Provo Utah airport. I just finished giving the keynote address at the Freedom Festival’s Patriotic Service. WOW. There is nothing like the way this state celebrates America. It is truly different here. It is more like the America I remember as a kid."
Glenn said Utah is the most patriotic and Glenn doesn't lie. I know he would have been blown out of the water had he spent the 4th of July in Kaysville because hands down, KAYSVILLE 4th RULES ALL! And I don't lie about the sacredness that is the 4th. Let me give you all a little taste of the 4th in K-town.
It starts with the Chuckwagon Breakfast put on by the mayor and the city council. There are pancakes, eggs, breakfast meats that I don't partake of, juice, and friends. You always dodge a couple people and you always hug a couple people. The person I love seeing most at the Chuckwagon is Hannah Watkins, well the whole Watkins clan actually.
After lazily eating 3 huge pancakes and chatting in the baking sun, we saunter down the street to stake our place for the parade. The Kaysville parade is the highlight of the day. I can't explain to you how amazing it is unless you come. I love it when I bring outsiders in the for the first time because they are seriously blown away at how awesome our little town is. At the parade you get to see people you know and then they throw candy and treats to you. Its fantastic. The best part of the parade for me is the Davis High marching band. Love 'em! After the hour long parade of wonder, there is a water parade that will cool you off really well. I'm a little too high maintenance for that so I don't usually participate because lets face it: I will not get ready twice in one day.
After the parade comes a day of BBQ and napping. Good food, good people, good sleep, good town. Perfect. Around 9 pm we head up to DHS for the firework show. You wouldn't think a little town could produce serious greatness with fireworks but we can! The show is about 30 minutes long and you get to lay right under the fireworks so you can kind of feel them exploding in your chest. Its the best feeling. Corey came up for the fireworks and I will admit he had a little sour attitude. He didn't see why it was so important for me to have him there. Then he saw the fireworks show and got how amazing it all is. So he is off my hate list because he made it and he loved it.
To sum up my lengthy piece on how fantastic the 4th of July is in Kaysville, I will leave you all with a few pictures. Enjoy. And don't get jealous that where ever you spent your 4th was lame and mine was awesome. Sorry, its just how Kaysville does it.

Our first day on the job, the first paper thrown was by Hollie but she was a little over zealous and broke the plastic/glass window on the trailer. That was funny because it took our first paycheck to pay for it. Sad. Well we loathed Thursdays because thats when we had our route. One Thursday in particular we did not want to deliver all 200+ papers so we came up with the idea to throw about 50 of them in the big construction dumpster in her neighborhood. That was a great idea because we finished our route in about 40 minutes! Good idea Hollie.
Anyway, to say the least it was a very interesting first job. It got so interesting in the trashy Layton trailer park that Hollie's cop dad had to come with us, armed one time because the trailer trash hated us. We didn't last too long but it was fun, something to keep us busy, and quite a story for you folks.

For those of you who are lost let me fill you in on a few things. I was raised in Kaysville, UT on a "farm." Behind my house there is a field and on the other side of that field is a beaver farm. Marion Rouche, our neighbor and friend, had the beaver farm which included about 30 small cement houses with 5 to 7 beavers in each of them. Going to visit the beavers, petting them, and feeding them was a very special, important, interesting, and fun part of my childhood. I loved when daddy would take us down there to see the beavers. What kid gets to go play with beavers? Probably not many.
Don't all go getting jealous because you too can visit beavers one day if you are lucky (except for Leslie and Corey because they are lame and don't think it would be fun). Just go to Kaysville and enjoy. Oh, while you are there you should probably go to Grannie's and get a scone and cinnamon roll for the road. They're mo-licous (which means MOre than delicious).
Josh and I had a good time remembering some beaver stories in the car so I decided that I will occasionally post about random stories from my past that are unique, weird, and probably only interesting to me. Enjoy.

I'm a Jaguar now!!! I will be teaching at Orem Junior High School next year! I could go on and on with exclamation points because no one will ever understand how excited I am. This is going to be such a good job and I am so happy. After 6 different interviews I knew I was going to find the perfect fit. My interview here lasted 2 hours people! I chatted with the entire social sciences department for over an hour on topics ranging from kids, discipline, marriage, Nordstrom, Diet Coke (the supposed drink from the Gods for teachers but I think I will stick with Dasani). I mean we just talked about everything and they were all so nice. The best part is that I walked into the classroom and there was my friend Allison Jensen from my program at BYU. She also got hired on for next year so I get to work with her! She is one of the most amazing people I have ever met (she actually lived next door to Grandma and Grandpa in Germany). I will do a few things over the summer with the social sciences department and my first required day with the district is August 11! I am so happy, nothing can get in my way. I hope everyone can have their dreams and goals all come together like mine just have. My dream was simple: to teach junior high. Here I am seizing it! I have to give a shout out to my mom and dad and friends and family who coached me through this long waiting period. Love to you all.

I spent days just reading everything I could get my hands on about history, particularly ancient world history as that is a black hole in my knowledge pool. I woke up at 6:30am on SATURDAY March 15 (Josh's birthday) to trek it up to BYU campus to take my test at 7. The test took 2 hours and the questions were really hard. They have free reign to ask you anything, literally anything that has ever happened in the world. Dates, art, rulers, civilizations, periods, wars, dynasties, people, acts, bills, and anything inbetween. And trust me, they asked me all of that crap.

This is long overdue. I love Glenn Beck. He and I are kindred spirits politically, humorously, and spiritually. This man owns my life weeknights from 7-8 pm with his CNN Headline News program. Leslie and I are his biggest groupies. Yeah thats right, Glenn Beck has groupies.
For those of you who are not subscribed to his daily emails, don't frequent the Glenn Beck website, or if you don't even know who I am talking about I will give you some Glenn info. Glenn started as a regular radio DJ in Connecticut and worked his way through brilliance and charm to a nationally syndicated radio show. In 2006, CNN gave him his own primetime news show and he has been blessing the lives of American homes ever since. He is a comedian/news anchor/genius/conservative/political analyst/economist/future president/Mormon. Basically Glenn Beck has it all. We see eye to eye on a lot of issues concerning the presidential election, the economy, oil, McCain not being a true conservative, polygamy raids, and cats (Glenn thinks that people who have more than 3 cats should be committed).
I first knew I was in love with Glenn when I saw his program right after President Hinckley died. I was already a Beck fan but my love jumped to a whole new level. You should check out his tribute to President Hinckley on youtube. Also look at his website and the wikipedia article (copy and paste the links because I am too lazy to hyperlink them). He came from drug addict to Mormon, what a champ you are Glenn! Please let me be on your show!!!

There are a few problems like what do you do with the hundreds of women and children left on every polygamist colony. Hopefully the women can get really high paying jobs at butter churners or something. I just cannot understand how men in Polygamists groups can walk around free. There is a large polygamist colony just 20 or 30 miles south of Provo. Everybody knows about yet nobody does anything about it. How can that be? If police knew there was a meth lab at a particular house they wouldn't let it just sit there, they would put a stop to it and arrest them.
Also, this is just a side note. The Eldorado FLDS group broke away from the Church over one issue: the revelation to end polygamy. They didn't believe that it really came from God but from a people who just wanted to be accepted by the rest of America. Well how can you believe that one prophet can have a revelation to start doing something and not believe that another prophet can have a revelation to stop doing something? Weird-o's.

You all know that I am a fan of celebrity gossip and I am a fan of the church but when the two mix it just doesn't fit. Can this be for real? According to the following CNN LINK it is. Is it just an April Fool's gone crazy far? I have no comment because I am so shocked/confused/baffled/curious/unsure. Decide for yourself.
NEW: check out this link from People on the same freaking story!

I was really impressed by you today. Strutting your stuff all around campus without a care in the world, wow. Anyone who can wear shorts, ankle socks, and flip flops deserves a shout out in my opinion. Good luck with the rest of life because I think you'll need it.

We spent a magical day there in the SUN! Thats right folks it was warm and I can't even explain to you how much I deserved the sunshine. After the last 5 months of walking to school everyday in freezing cold and usually snow, I DESERVED THE SUNSHINE! At one point Leslie, Corey, and I ended up standing by a line (no, not in the line, by the line because we decided it was too long) sweating to death in the hot sun. But we were all okay with it because we knew we had to appreciate it while we could.
I hadn't been to Disneyland in well over 15 years and I only had 3 previous memories
- eating a churro that tasted delicious
- a train rollercoaster
- Honey I Shrunk the Kids
Now I have tons of funny, happy, and tiring memories of my trip and Disneyland.
Because of my limited knowledge of the park I didn't realize that lines were long and rides were short. But I am still sticking to the fact that it was so worth it! My favorite ride of all was my previous memory # 2, Thunder Mountain. I loved it because I love Western history. We rode through a red rock mountain, saw prospectors and miners, and we were on a train (which being a conductor is my dream job). The funniest part was Josh getting absolutely drenched on Splash Mountain. I mean water was drippig off of him. Fortunately it was our last ride but unfortunately it was at night so he was freezing and angry.
There are just a million stories and memories that if you ever see me laughing alone at nothing in particular, I am laughing about those. Leslie and I have only been home a couple of hours and have found each other in laughing fits many times. Some of those memories include an asolutely awful 5 hour drive back to Vegas after a full day of play and no sleep the night before, hand puppets, getting lost in the car, Heather's shirt, little kids being terrified of Corey, losing Lani, being with my brother, Corey driving the Jeep, Alisha's fantastic and kind family, and just having a weekend away!
Momma, I will post some pictures tomorrow for you! Oh and happy Easter everyone!

But the swag at the teacher fair totally trumped the housing fair. I got a gazillion pens, 7 markers, 1 frisbee, 3 calenders, 2 post-it pads, and 0 jobs. Before you all go out feeling bad and awkward that I didn't get a job, its okay. I still have another year before they can hire me as as a solo teacher, not a BYU contracted teacher.
I also got to see a lot of my school friends that are out doing student teaching right now. They looked like they had aged and been through a war. That is their analogy, not mine. Yes, thats what one of them referred to student teaching as. The short release they got for the teacher fair was well earned. Oh, I just can't wait to get all teacher haggered and come home with pencils and paper in my hair. Yeah, its gonna be great.

He was on his phone so I already wanted to kill him. I gave him the death stare of, "duh, can't you tell this is a place where no one is talking but you and we can all hear what you are saying to Steve on the other line." So not only is he talking but he wasn't even doing the I-am-at-school-on-the-phone-whisper. Once he finally figured out the schedule for his scuba diving class he pulled it out of his back pack: a nasty A meal in gross tupperware - and a plastic fork.
But I also forgot to mention that my dear friend has a breathing problem, meaning he was just breathing. But his breathing is special because he sounded like a freaking lion in heat. It was insane but he wasn't even sick, I know that was just his regular breathing regimine. Well his meal smelled like a junior high boys locker room and apparently the breathing gets worse when he's trying to eat. I grabbed what I could in 3 seconds, didn't even bother backing up, just carried everything I own and took off speed walking down the hall to get away from the loud Breather/Talker/UglyHair/SmellyFood/Tupperware dude.

Anyway, I was roaming campus today and found the best substitute for buying lunch: the housing fair. I was on the phone with my sister Lindsay when I told her about my brilliant plan to gather the free treats from the fair for my lunch. I thought she was going to cry, imagining that I am some street beggar. Well guys, it was a great idea. I had popcorn, cotton candy, a banana, few strawberries, water, and a lot of little candy bars. I could have even had a hot dog but I would rather starve than eat one of those. I also came away with 6 pens, 1 free tanning pass (that I already threw away because I am not a fag), 1 tote, 3 magnets, and 1 full tummy. I am going to search out fairs every time I have to spend all day on campus. I would suggest this to anyone.

Well we played a round of said game last night and it was pretty funny because there was a new mix added in: Corey. Yes, a boy. How did that throw the game off you ask, well it didn't (he's assimilated to the girls quite well). I think he was a little uncomfortable for a while but then he got over it.
Next time you feel like the people around you need some positive, self-affirmation kind of chit chat you should play this game. It really helps and I feel a lot closer to the people around me. I love my girls for coming up with this game!

My neighbor Alisha gave me the best gift ever (sorry to anyone who has ever given me anything but its true). She gave me breast cancer, literally. Ok, well not so literally. Her mother suffered with stage 4 breast cancer for many years and became a teacher for breast cancer awareness. Alisha told her mom about my obsession and her mother sent her this gift to give me. I got a breast model with two lumps in it. One lump can easily be felt and another lump represents one that could only be found with a mammogram. It is amazing. I am going to keep it in my purse all the time and whip it out to show everyone what a lump would feel like. I can't wait to show my mom and my sisters. I think this just finishes off the breast cancer paraphernalia drawer. Thats no joke either. I really do have a drawer in the kitchen dedicated to all my breast cancer stuff. I should take a picture of that too. Ladies, look forward to seeing me next because you will get a little lesson on breast lumps!

My biggest hatred however, is with Zupas. You could not pay me to go in there. They have horrible service, a stupid name, and they wont sell you what you want to eat. I would call them douche bags but my mom would get mad. And whats with Tomassos upping their prices. A delicious ice cream cone used to be $2.00 exactly, with tax. It was perfect and easy. Now its 39 cents more. Man I hate greedy lame-o people.
I guess you guys all know what topics not to bring up anymore. I dont want to talk about these places almost as much as I will never go to again. I could use a steak though if anyone wants to bring up where I should go to get one.

Jaimee: she took me everywhere with her when I was a baby doll and carried me out of my baptism
Jen: its amazing how she can make me tell her stuff - I guess thats why she gets paid for that kind of stuff
Heidi: one word - heidilicoius. yeah I just made that up but I think it explains it all from always knowing what new and hip to her fantastic dancing abilities
Lindsay: she made me an aunt. I used to not talk to her because I was so afraid of her not liking me but now I think she is the shiz and she does like me!
Joshy: takes my garbage out, drives me around, always offers to make me broccoli, and did not marry skinny B
Dad: whenever he answers the phone he always acts like I am a solicitor and says I will have to call again later
Momma: she still tucks me in at night and I'm 22 years old. She makes me whatever I am craving and I think she even likes doing it. I might be wrong about that but she certainly acts like doting on me is the best thing in the world

I dont know if any of you noticed that my blog was wack last week but that was definitely my doing. However, dear Kyle (my BFF Laura's husband) fixed it for me... again! If you guys dont know Laura and Kyle, you should. They are blogging experts and they can make anything and it will always be delicious. Plus I have known Laura since 4th grade so she has all the dirt on me if you need it.
I do have other friends too and I would like to take a moment to talk about them. I think its mostly my fam that reads this junk so here are some highlights about some other people I love and why I love them - because I'm sure you're sitting on the edge of your seats waiting to read this.
Ashton: all that needs to be said is fffffffffffffff (no one will understand that)
Jessica: we can read each others thoughts and she is the most discrete and pretty nerd I know
Heather: we kind of live parallel love lives and she loves dipping sauces
Leslie: she listents to me and she gets me but the best part is that I dont freak her out with my voyeuristic tendancies
Lani: knows everything and is the youngest grown up out there
Sarah: is Josie Geller but without the unfortunate appearance. what I mean by that is she is a phenomenal writer and works for the newspaper
Corey: he walks with his left shoulder slightly lower than his right and out of all these people he might know me the best
Rich: is newly married but promises to still like me even though I am now a "single friend"

I better get at least one new baby in my life (sisters, that means you!) and one sibling married. I dont think that is too much to ask for people. As for me and what I want, well that is for me to know and no one to find out. A friend inspired me to make a list of predictions. I think I am goint to try that for the first time. My first prediction is that I forget all my predictions come March. Happy New Year!
