Isn't It Crazy?

Isn't it crazy how funny life can be? How one moment you can be so upset by a certain something or someone and then the next you can totally be distracted by that thought and all the world is solid bliss.

People are funny.


I have learned a few things lately that will definitely help me when I leave this country for four and a half months.

1. Trust no one, but yourself.

2. Not everybody will love you.

3. No matter where you go, you cannot run from certain emotions.

4. Music is always the best form of therapy.

5. Don't ever feel sorry for yourself. Pick your self up by the boots and keep trudging along.

6. People worry too much about being beautiful in life and they shouldn't because life in itself is beautiful.

7. Girl's tend to play too many mind games so I need to find myself a woman.

8. You can't please everybody no matter how hard you try.

9. Don't be too nice, because people will take advantage of you.

10. Try everything once. Then you can say if you really do or do not like it.


In case you can't tell, I have been thinking a lot lately about life, friends, family, school, and work. This whole living-in-China thing is really starting to sink in. (22 days until I am gone) I have to think about which school I am going to in the Spring right now. So I will either be an Aggie, or a Ute. I have a feeling everything will fall in to place as life goes on.

Summer Highlite

Where to begin? . . .

I work with a few illegals who will remain anonymous due to legal issues. They are hilarious and don't speak a word of English. I took four years of it at Wasatch Junior and Skyline High and have picked up quite a bit because that is the only way to communicate with my co-workers. I wouldn't say I know a lot, but I can somewhat communicate with them.

Since they always listen to the Mexican Polka, I always ask them when they were going to take me dancing. (I didn't think they actually would . . ) Let's just say they took me way too soon.

So . . Rosa . . yes, Rosa . . called me and started speaking in Spanish at one million words per minute saying that her friends were going to go clubbing and that she wanted me to come. I felt bad so I agreed. I told her that I am not 21 yet and that I don't think I could go to many places. She said it was all good and to meet her downtown. As we get downtown, I realize that you must be 21 to go! I was freaking out, but Rosa and her friend weren't. We go up to the bouncer while Rosa winks and does her thang(yes. thang) and he asks for our id's. My heart races. My throat tightens. I wouldn't last a day in jail. (can you tell I'm an over-analyzer?) He looks at the id, looks at my baby face, down at the id, and hands it back to me and smiles. How in the hell did I just get in to a club?! The shock didn't wear off until we were leaving. Let's just say that Mexican's can dance for hours no matter how sweaty they become. It was fun. I kind of felt like it was a bad scene of Jersey Shore, but it was all good. I had fun. I wish I brought my camera, but I was scared for many reasons to bring it.

My hips don't lie.

Love you long time.
