Life of a Single Girl

Okay so I first have to say that I did NOT get the job in Alaska... Bummer I know. But the very next day I got a job offer at Farmer's Insurance so I guess there's a reason that I'm staying around. I also found out that I got re-accepted to BYU-Idaho on the Fall/Spring track. So I start school on Sept. 10. I have to say that I am extremely excited that I will not be on campus during the winter. Parking is a nightmare. The whole point of people living on campus is so that they don't have to drive and can save gas money... Hello! I need a parking spot people!

Anywhoo... I have to say that I love Sex and the City; the series and the movie. They make it look so glamorous dating all different kinds of people and going to parties and staying out late. Wish I lived in Manhattan. Did you know that I am the last of my friends who is not married? It's ridiculous. And not only am I the only single girl, all my friends are now having babies (except Heather, YAY!). I am only 22 (almost) and I feel like an old maid! All of Brianna's friends who are only 19 are getting married. And that really makes me feel old. It's kinda depressing. It would be better if I wasn't going to a mormon school, but since I am I have to deal with it. I'm going to describe the dating life of a 22 year old girl at BYU-Idaho. First off any guy who is cool is married, soon to be married or seriously dating someone. Any guy who is a pre-mi (under 19) is only looking for someone to make out with before they go celibate for the next two years. And besides they are WAY too young for me. I tried the younger guy remember? It didn't work out so well. Then if the guy is a returned missionary he is going to be weird at least for the first year. And once they start getting serious they want someone who is under the age of 19 so that they can have a "young" wife... 18 is still legal. Then if by some miracle you get asked out it feels like you are at an interview. They ask you how many kids you want, if you want to be a stay at home mom (which I most definitely DO NOT), if you pay tithing on your net or gross income. It's more intense than a temple interview! And then of course there is the inevitable and dreaded question... "What is your major?" Can they not come up with a more original question than that? What does my major have to do with who I am as a person??? Being a biology major has nothing to do with the fact that I love to laugh and read and that purple and green are my favorite colors. Come on guys! So to sum up my choices here they are: I can date a married man (always tempting), hook up with a player, lie about my age or talk about having kids with some guy I don't even like. It's a rough life I live.

So if any of you know a man who does NOT fit into the categories mentioned above, who doesn't mind dating a girl my size, and is fun to hang out with, let me know. I think I'm ready to start dating again. Love you guys!

Happy St. Patty's Day!!!

Today is a GREAT day! Because it is the holiday where you are required to wear green, my favorite color! And if you like to party it is completely appropriate to get smash-face wasted! WOOT! WOOT! Not that I'm going to be one of those people... I'm just saying. Anywhoo I find out tonight if I get to go back to Alaska and I have all of my fingers and toes crossed that it happens. Sorry that the last couple of posts have been so negative and cranky, but I assure you that I am 100 percent A-OKAY! So I'm just hangin out at Rachael's house, which I do almost every day. And her "lap dog" Fancy (who by the way is a 60 lb pit bull) is so spoiled. More spoiled than my Dekers! Yesterday we went to run errands and Fancy pants had to come along. She pouted in the back seat until I let her come up front and sit in my lap. It was one of the most uncomfortable rides ever. She is currently sitting on Rachael's lap as I type while Rach is trying to work on her computer. When she takes a nap Rachael wraps her up in a blanket to make a "Fancy Taco". Heaven forbid the dog is cold while she's napping! :) On a personal note I talked to my ex today and it was great! In the way that I now know without a doubt in my mind that I am so over him! Yay for me! I just had to share that happy news with you guys. Tonight I have my enrichment birthday party. Normally I don't do enrichment but since I have become a member of the board I'm kinda obligated to go. Oh well. It's going to be fun (I'm trying to think positive). We are doing a black and white theme with a taco bar and lots of chocolate desserts! Can't go wrong with chocolate! I'm just rambling so I'll end now and hopefully my next post will have happy news!!!

Spring Break

I wish I could claim that it was my spring break that took us to Montana to some super nice hot springs, but I would have to be enrolled in school to have a spring break. So we went for Bean's spring break to Fairmont Hot Springs. It was amazing. Two days of nothing but chillaxing in hot pools. We went into Deer Lodge and went to the old prison there. It was pretty cool. Bean was scared. She jumped every time she saw a doll posing as a character. I have to admit that i am extremely glad that I wasn't imprisoned back in the old days. They had this place there called the 'hole'. They would lock the prisoners in cells underground and only give them meals every three days for ten days. Crazy! Anywho it was a nice getaway.

This is totally off topic of spring break, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get to go back to Alaska this summer! I hope hope hope that it happens. I just need to runaway for awhile. I'm sick of being surrounded by people and stress. I just want to get away and have fun and not deal with people. I wouldn't do the dock staff which is fine, I would be the nanny for the kids. I love those little kids. I find out next week. I'll keep you posted!

The Bachelor

Okay so I know that there are going to be about a million and one posts about the Bachelor, but I felt the need to give my opinion...


I only started watching it when he had three girls left and narrowed it down to Molly and Melissa. And from the first time I watched it I could see how cute Melissa and Jason were together. I LOVE Melissa. Don't get me wrong, Molly is beautiful and sweet but there was just something about Mel. So when he picked her last night I was actually screaming. I was so excited because the guy had finally picked the right girl. And then the 'After the Final Rose' came on and I couldn't believe it! What a flaming douche bag to dump Mel on public television and say that he was still in love with Molly! I have to say she acted very ladylike. I would have kicked him in the gonads and kneed him in the face as he fell. I was pissed! I don't usually get this worked up over the BAchelor because the chances of it actually working are very slim. But this time it made me so angry. Maybe because I recently went through my own heartbreak... who knows. I'm happy that Molly got her prince charming back because it's sad that she had to deal with the rejection. But Jason does not deserve her! Okay that's all.
