Happy Mother's Day...

To four beautiful women in my family! Happy Mother's Day to Grandma Jackie,

My lovely mother (who looks like she's 35),

My sister Ashley (who is due to have a baby boy in 13 DAYS)...

...And to the newest mother in the family, my sister Rachel! It's too early to know what she's having, but I have a feeling it's a girl.

To Grandma and Mom, you've been amazing mothers. You and Dad and Grandpa have taught me everything I know, and I can't possibly adequately express my gratitude for all you've done for me. To Rachel and Ashley, I know that you'll be great moms. Congratulations! I love you all!

I Can Hear the Bells

That's right, everyone. I've met my soul mate. I was in the shuttle van at the airport, thinking I'd have the ride to myself, when the driver was instructed to wait for someone else. I groaned a little, because I was anxious to get back to my apartment. But then this very attractive guy climbed in next to me. Brown hair, green eyes, tan skin. Helllloooo.

We sat there awkwardly for about ten minutes until I decided to break the ice.

"So where did you fly in from?"

"I'm from England."

*cue jawdrop*

Over the course of the ride, we discovered that we have a mutual love of Top Gear, seafood, chocolate, political debate, and musicals. It is like we were meant to be.

But alas, no. He's in Utah because he's going to the MTC, and he will be serving his mission in Hungary. And then he's going back to England for university. I will never see him again.

Ah, well. It makes for a fun story.

Can I Just Say...

That life is good? No, it's not just good, it's uh-mazing right now. Spring is coming, I can feel it. I got an interview for that job I applied for, and it went very well. She outright told me that she was very impressed with me. The job requires me to help the girl with her occupational therapy goals, which is EXACTLY what I want to do with my career. The experience will look fantastic on a graduate school application. This week, I found out that my former English professor is looking for a TA for the next six weeks, and chances are good that I got that job as well.


There's an attractive boy in my physiology class and lab (so I see him five days a week) that I've had my eye on for awhile, and we prefer talking to listening to the lecture. :P Today after class, he said, "Hey, can I get your number?" *mumbles something about a study group* I wanted to be like:


But I kept my cool, and we exchanged our numbers. And then I got home, and did a "FIST PUMP!", Megamind style.

I'm going to go and play loud music and dance around the apartment now. :D

Lately, I've been working on becoming more confident and assertive, but I haven't had any real results. But in the next few days, I will, one way or the other. I got an email from the psychology department saying that a mom in the area is looking for a trainer and a friend for her special needs daughter. I've been looking for a job, and not only does this seem like a great job for now, but this will prepare me for my (hopeful) future as an occupational therapist.

So what did I do? I wrote an email telling this complete stranger that I am qualified to help her daughter, and to prove it, I attached a resume. Can you believe the moxie on that doll? I told my mom that I'd sleep on it, but I figured that if I waited until morning I'd chicken out.

I'm feeling slightly sick. Can I juuuust...take that email back, please? You know when they tell you to just "go for it"? Well, I did that alright, but I prefer more immediate results. I don't like this business of waiting. But I REALLY hope I get it!

I know.

I KNOW that "mom is always right". Either it's because she knows you so well, she has eyes in the back of her head, or because she has super awesome psychic powers known as "mother's intuition". Whatever.

Mom, no offense, but did you really HAVE to be right on this one?

Fine, you win.
