Online Dating

I should be writing my chemistry abstract right now... but I can't focus. I just keep thinking about this online dating site that I'm a member of. And I'm gonna be completely honest and admit that I have no idea how I became a member... It used to be the Aquarium on Facebook, and now it has become SpeedDate. I guess since I had the aquarium app that means that I wanted this one when it changed over... whatever. I thought hey, what the heck? right? It couldn't hurt any... All I've met so far have been weirdos. And that entire word should be capitalized just to add emphasis for how weird they really are/ creepy. It's speed dating. The site pulls up someone they think you would match with who is also currently online. You have three minutes to IM back and forth or you can choose to leave the date early and you have to give the reason why. Today I was on and I get some guy. Has a decent pic, probably wasn't even what he really looked like. We talked for maybe five sentences, he asks if I have a webcam. I reply no, he says damn and leaves the date. WTF??? Then this other guy wants to chat so we skip the whole three minute thing and start e-mailing. We e-mail back and forth for probably 15 minutes and then he asks if I want to play dirty. I didn't even know what that meant! I had to ask.. embarrassing when you think about. And yes, it is exactly what you think it means. What a jerk! No worries, I told him off. The nerve of the loser.. Jeez. I'm sorry but when did it become appropriate to proposition someone over an e-mail? And after only talking for like 10 minutes?! I'm not saying I want to revert back to Pride and Prejudice times, but come on! At least TRY to get to know me/ pretend to act interested before you hit me up for sex. This is my current opinion on all men. I have yet to meet a decent one who contradicts what I just wrote. Where's a Prince Charming when you really want one?

Rexburg to St. George and everywhere inbetween

I haven't posted in awhile.. mostly cuz I haven't really been in a bloggin mood. But I have a feeling that this is post is going to be quite a doozy.. So here it goes. I am loving my girlies at Tuscany. I don't know what I would do without them and their crazy stories. They keep me sane most days. :) I got to have dinner with Crystal on Monday and I was so excited to see her! She is one of my besties from the summer semester and she was in town visiting. It was so good to catch up on all the gossip (I know, I'm a sinner... LOL) and just hang out. Texas Roadhouse always sets the right mood. We ran errands together and talked and laughed and it felt like she had never left.

Over this last weekend I went on a girls trip with my old roomie from Alaska and SLC, JODIE!!! It was SOOOO good to see her. I haven't seen her since I left last april! Over a year and a half. It's crazy! I forgot how much I love hangin out with her. I have to say that I am so grateful that she was with me cuz I think I would have freaked on one of the other girls if she hadn't been there with me. It was Jodie's friend's friend. Does that make sense? Anywhoo her and I kinda clashed. I think maybe I clash with alot of people... Food for thought I guess. Anways I made a grand discovery while we were driving down. Jode and I were talking about books and how the authors have to be brilliant to come up with the storylines that they do. I confessed to be completely uncreative. And then I had a brilliant thought. I am creative with reality. That is my new motto. So when I start to feel like retard because I can't choreograph a dance, or write a national bestseller, I just say to myself, "Amber, you are creative with reality. You look at things that are going on in today's world and you research and create something new and make it a better place." ( that sounds a little conceited but it's my blog, so really I can get away with it haha) And really, can it get much better than that??? I think not! LOL.

For halloween I was a mad scientist/groupie of the Spice girls. Doesn't sound like a good combo, and you probably didn't know I was the latter of the two unless you saw who I was with. That's right. The girlies were the Spice Girls, and I must confess to be very impressed with their outfits. They pulled it off very well. I helped with the hair. We went to a couple parties, danced, played games and pretty much rocked the night away. Of course at the end of the night we had to watch SpiceWorld.... I'm gonna have to say that that was probably a waste of two hours of my life, but what can ya do?

This post kind worked its way down from the most recent events, but that's because they were freshest in my mind. :) Can't really think of anything else to say... Peace!
