The Truth About Girls

So...I found this online and thought I'd share. It is hilarious/so true :)

The Truth About Girls....<3

-Midol is like crack. end of story.

-We love Ben & Jerry's more than you.

-We're always right even when we're wrong.

-It takes at least an hour to look this good.

-We'll never be too old for sleepovers.

-We must go to the bathroom in groups.

-We should never be used as objects.

-Sometimes is just quite never enough.

-"fine" never means anything good.

-We are not ashamed of crying.

-We wish boys still had cooties.

-Gossip isn't a sin. It is an art.

-Being "beautiful" is way better then being "hot"

-We have this thing called feelings - don't hurt them

-Behind EVERY b**ch there's a guy who made her that way

-Hoes over bros. no questions asked.

- we don't wake up looking pretty..it takes time and effort. for most.

- we need girls nights OFTEN...

- we hold grudges and we never forget things you say to us that hurt

-It doesn't matter who dumped who or why...whenever we see an ex with another girl , it will always bother us. not because we're not over you but just because we know we used to be that girl

- Makeup can hide so many things from puffy eyes from crying to huge scars from a broken heart

- no guy wants to marry a whore... well no good girl wants to marry a manwhore either.

- never ever ask a girl what she weighs, or imply anything about our weight being too much or too little, just don't do it.

-Our three favorite words: Let's go shopping.

-We win the arguments.

-We love our best friends more than our boyfriends.

-My heels may look hot but they hurt like crap.

-We are never to old to play "dress up".

My smile has faded. Dark circles are beginning to find a home under my eyes. I haven't worn jeans in days. My breakfast, lunch, and dinner consist of extreme amounts of caffeine. I twitter about fiscal policy and deficits. I can't remember the last time I washed my hair. Suddenly WebCT is the new Facebook. Graphs and vocab words are bouncing around in my head.

Must be finals week.

I know that New Years is still pretty far away but I've begun to brainstorm some New Year's Resolutions. Surly I will have a more concrete list when the day finally comes. But I figured I might as well write them now while I'm thinking of it. In the year 2010 I will..

Work out. I wonder just how many people write this for their New Years resolution. I'm guessing it's probably one of the most popular. Am I jumping that bandwagon? eh, I wouldn't say so. I do feel better when I finally do make it to the gym, it's getting there that's the hard part. I just need motivation, which actually shouldn't be that difficult for me, considering the boyf goes 5x a week. But my motivation is myself, not him. I'd like to look good, feel good, and increase my health...for me.
Volunteer. In high school, I was at the hospital for 4 hours every week, I organized blood drives, and spent a great deal of my time volunteering. In the transition from Colorado to Utah, high school to college, the time I spent volunteering disappeared. I'm going to find that time and volunteer again. I truly miss it.

Study. Even when I don't have to.

Disregard first impressions. They are usually wrong anyways. I feel like there are amazing people out there that I never really gave a chance to. Who knows what kind of friends I could have had if I hadn't been so quick to judge.

Family. I should give more time to my family. Drew is about to graduate and who knows how long him or Dayne will be in Utah. I shouldn't take that time for granted. When they move, I know my heart will break. All I can do is make the most of the time now, when we are all in the same state. Same goes for my cousins!

Grudges. I want to let go of every grudge I've ever had. Start new. I don't want to waste my time hating and disliking. There are too many wonderful and lovely things in my life.

Those three words. I should say "I love you" more to the people who I care about. My family, sorority sisters, and friends, because they should always know just how much they mean to me.
These are just a couple of ideas :)

Living the Dream

I don't know how it is possible. Somehow it just happened. My life, at this moment, is exactly how I imagined it. I must have hit some sort of lucky streak, because everything is perfect. I guess I'm just grateful for how everything is coming along. Growing up, I never really knew what to expect at college, but I don't think I could have dreamed up something better then my reality.

I love my sorority. (ok, I've told you that a million times) But really, those girls mean the world to me. I recently became VP Fiance of the house, meaning I am in charge of all the bills, dues, and well...finance stuff :) This is the position I really wanted. It will be amazing experience and a great addition to my resume!

I recently got a new job as an Executive Assistant for a biomedical engineering company. This job has been an extraordinary addition to my life. I do the bookkeeping, scheduling, press releases, errands, etc. I have even learned how to run QuickBooks! I am so lucky to have this job. It's only 20 hours a week and the pay is amazing, I'm even on salary :) I have already learned so much about running a small company and I know that I have so much more to learn, which I am so eager to do. It's such a great change of pace to be working somewhere where I learn in the field I want to go into, where everyday is different, and where I am constantly challenged.

My boyfriend, Mr. Scott Eaton recently turned 20. I am no longer dating a teenager :) We went to Beta Formal about a week ago. Here are some pics to enjoy...

School is almost outttt!!! Only two week of term and then it's winter break!! My classes are going really well. I think I'll finish out with a 3.8 or higher. Which gives me a bigger reason to LOVE my life. Me and Scott are going to Colorado for 5 days to see the fam. I'm so excited to show him the places that I grow up, show him Chocolate (my horse!), and go skiing with my dad.

Basically, I'm living the dream. And I hope this lasts for a long, long time :)
