10 thoughts

1. I love Autumn

2. Bugs have a mind of their own.

Take this weekend for example: You know those big nasty bugs that look like mosquitoes from dinosaur times because they are so big? Well one of those was on the windshield of my car when I headed up to work. It had all of its legs evenly dispersed on the glass but as my vehicle picked up speed it was struggling to hang on. Slowly but surely, he began slipping; and I watched as first one leg went flying backward; then another, then another, until all that was left was one leg keeping him on the car. His body was flailing around in the wind but he was gripping on like mad. It’s like the equivalent to mechanical bull riding or something. I am happy to say the journey was a success for that buggy. Tell me that little guy didn’t know what he was doing…

3. When it rains, it pours

4. Sophie is, and always will be, the light of my life

5. I play chicken and lose chicken every day

To those of you unfamiliar with chicken, it’s the game you play when walking, well, anywhere. Say a person is coming towards you. They are walking on the same path that you are. One of you has got to move or else face collision. To win chicken you’ve got to be the last man standing—the one that didn’t veer from their original path. On what seems to be a daily basis, I find myself playing said game. I see a person coming towards me and I can’t resist. So, I determinedly march forward, intent on winning; victory will be mine. But the individual playing with me (knowingly or unknowingly) never seems to move! Gosh. You’d think BYU students, of all people, would be a little more courteous. I always find myself jumping out of the way just in the nick of time; and on a rare occasion even experiencing the crash. Either I am the only one that plays this game or campus is full of chicken champs.

6. I’ve got pretty great roommates…the best, actually.

7. I’ve thought about Thanksgiving every day this past week and I think it might be my favorite holiday (though I’ll probably say that about Christmas once November has passed)!

8. My sister is having a baby in March and I CAN’T WAIT!!!!! New baby has got some competition though seeing as his/her older brother is about the most adorable child to grace the planet

9. The only pain comparable to stubbing a toe or getting a paper cut is childbirth. And seeing as I’ve never experienced childbirth, I’m going to assume that there is no worse pain than stubbing a toe or getting a paper cut. Unless you did them at the same time…

10. Not that I will, but what if I fail my marriage prep exam? What exactly does that mean?


  1. I'm not so sure that a roomate wearing a Red Sox hat could be considered "the best," but that's just me. I'm sure she's a good citizen though.
