fighter when she's mad and a lover when she's lovin'

"I finally understood what true love really meant. That love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be."
- Dear John

dear john

valentines day will be here soon!
i am torn, due to the unfortunate fact that if any holiday holds bad memories for me, it is indeed valentine's day. these feelings have nothing to do with the overall commercial lonliness (i have never been one to let things like that get to me) but i do remember 2 or 3 solid experiences that tend to linger and... shall we say, "
take the romantic atmosphere down a notch or 10" but i have come to the conclusion that in the heart of a hopeless romantic, these things may be overridden at times like these.
not to mention i have so much to be thankful for in that "department" ;) looove you baby!

sighhh, i would be straight lying if i told you that i wasn't absolutely thrilled to see this in approx 10 days:

channing and amanda, i'm not expecting The Notebook, but please, please don't let me down.

Formspring Me ♥

ask me anything, tell me vhatever you liiiike.
please and thank you.

i love my pocket-sized listerine... is that weird?

i feel like an alcoholic whenever i pull it out and take a swiggg but hey, if fresh breath has a price tag... i'll pay it!
anyways, that actually had nothing to do with my purpose for this post. i got distracted by something in my purse and my listerine caught my attention.

i wanted to saaay that i know i could sit here for hours and complain that klay and i never go out anymore, but in all honesty, it is so nice. we get to spend time together with close friends, our families and be well rested for school and work. granted, there are things and people that i miss dearly, but nothing beats a night of papa johns, valentines day candy and rummikub at the millers!

in other news, this has been a tough weeeeek for too many reasons, but i appreciate that it is over now! that, that, that, that don't kill me can only make me really tired... but stronger in the end.

is it sad that i'm really looking forward to monday because i get to go school shopping? and no, not for clothes; we took a vote at home and aside from me, it was unanimous that i do not need any more outfits :(. i have mentioned this before and i'll mention it again:
I ♥ school supplies!

Question of the Week:
If you could decide what i will be doing to my hair this thursday at approx. noon, what would it be?
i'm so excited, it has been far too long since a professional cut and/or dyed my hair. i'm a cheap DIY hair stylist, but it works. I am looking for a more sophisticated cut and a more natural color, buuuut i haven't quite decided.

old habits die hard

i was telling klay the other day, someone must have driven me around as a baby to calm me down.
i swear its my nicotine.
if i'm bored/ restless/ sad/ angry/ confused/ unsettled and i get into the driver's seat... yeah, good luck getting me out from behind the wheel until i've wasted all my gas sorting out my thoughts and feelings. if i'm feeling anything other than completely content, i "could use a good drive" and i'll be gone for hours.

it is dangerous (i tend to text...),
it is definitely one of my worst habits.

i've made myself a sign:
its actually really embarrassing that a sign is necessary for me to not waste money, but it works! hopefully i can use getting it off of my console as an insentive to drive from point A to point B and back again without any hour long detours.
yeeeesh. so many odd habits to break, but i ♥ new years resolutions!

Haiti ♥

first and foremost:
my heart and prayers go out to those in Haiti and the people affected by the devastation occurring there. i have so much compassion towards the victims, their families and the service workers that have rushed to Haiti to help. we watched a documentary/ news story the other night about the level of destruction and lack of supplies to help the Haitians- i couldn’t even comprehend the severity of it. this morning they had another earthquake, a 6.1 aftershock and things have gotten much worse. i’m on a mission to find a secure way to donate to the relief… know of anything?

i know i just posted this on facebook, so i hate to recap the haps but i'm going to anyways:
though made up entirely of the most overplayed songs of '09, this mashup is honestly a perfect compilation of my feelings for this last year. it was a hard year, and i was going to go into it in a previous post but i've decided against it. its not a year that needs to be simplified into a paragraph to be remembered. i will never forget it. the good, the bad, the ugly, it will always have a special place in my heart.

2010 has already proved to be completely different. its hard, but i'm thankful for the changes that i have chosen to make. i know i am doing the right thing and that i will be blessed in the end and all along the way.
its going to be a difficult process, there is no doubt about it.
i'm a very strong girl, though. i will not doubt myself and my abilities to withstand temptations, trials and tribulations.

very relaxxxing weekend, i loved it.
no work, so the days were made up of visiting with friends, long drives through gilbert, good music blasting, shopping and overloads of diet soda. theses led into nights consisting of far too much (GOOD) food

computer time, playing family fued and watching the discovery channel with klay and chloe
(you know i lub you chlo, but i still haven't quite forgiven you for trying to attack me last night!)

and making a fire...
over and over and over again haha &heart;

i am the luckiest girl, and i have been blessed to surround myself in the best company.


back to the daily grind tomorrow, happy MiLK day ya'll

obviously there are about 50 more photoes, they're in my college album on facebook. i only wish i had the time and patience to upload and resize them all <3

eating healthy for two weeks. sometimes its boringggg, but i'm rather creative so i'll spice it up here and there! makenna and i went to paradise bakery the other day and got into a conversation about how whenever we're forced to eat healthy food (ie. lettuce... which i hate) we try and figure out just how "good" it really tastes. as in, how brainwashed we are against the flavor of healthy food from when we were kids and knew that cheeseburgers tasted good, but are bad for you which would in turn make salads taste bad because they are good for you.
i was trying to figure it out, and i think i made a little progress.
i love asperagus, fruit, onions, cherry tomatoes, and cheese and nuts so thats a start!

the rush

at le coffee shoppe listening to middle aged men complain about their facebooks...
"what are we ten? i have to accept to be your friend? check yes or no? no! we were never even friends in real life."
"no i don't want to join your nip/tuck group... STOP ASKING."
now we've moved on to
"i feel like avatar was anti-american, anti- the government... i mean it was digitally stimulating but i can't stand for it. if you can't accept my opinion on it... don't ask me about it. i can't even understand their language, i feel brain dead."
what the hell are we analyzing here? haha shut up! settle down! your opinions on such matters shouldn't even exist, much less matter to ANYONE. especially the poor guy that has been quietly listening to your psycho babble for the passed hour and a half.
i am tempted to find him on facebook, add him and page request him to every avatar and/or nip/tuck page there is.

i am always left guessing at numbers and figures
trying to make sense and take control of something that should not consume my mind as it does.

one day, i hope it subsides.
until then, i'll hold myself steady because i know i'll be okay someday.

-klayklayklay; forget me knot.

"snowboarding and haircuts"
-my first snowboarding tripppp and new years eve shinanigans.




haha for goooood measure, i got this shirt:

hopefully going to disneyland this weekend! not looking to get hopes up too high, but it'd be safe to say that my fingers are fractured from crossing them so tight ;) all these adventures aside, i'm secretly super excited to be on a normal sched once school starts again. i crave normalcy... normality? my sister and i are at the coffee shop debating which would be the correct term.

not the most creative post i've ever created, but i had to get them photos up.
