Three Things

3 Things you may want to know about my current life:
1. My family got a new Mac
2. I gave a talk today.
3. I wrote this in my notebook on Friday during child care. (We were watching a movie anyway)

What's it like being normal?
I'd hate to find out.
The worry each day of wearing an outfit that everyone will think is cute and blends in with the crowd.
The time it takes to get each hairsprayed curl perfect.
Not my wavy and frizzy mane.
The make up.
The designer necklaces and earrings.
Same brand as the back pack.
The cute bracelet with a glittery clasp.
Instead of glow sticks.
The radio blaring the hottest song that just came out.
No matter all the crap that song may mention.
The quiet reserve as you walk down the hall.
Only interacting with those on the lit screen in front of you.
Gong to the mall each week for new clothes.
Not DI every 2
The constant worrying. Hoping so and so likes you.
Wondering if your hair is okay

Really, does anyone care?

These boots are made for walking

There is something tantalyzing about walking in the rain in
high plether boots.

"Hey Aubs, what's on your shoe?"
"Umm... finger paint I think."
"Woah, what's that on your hands?"
"Oh, this one's food coloring."
"Wait... what's on your skirt?"
"I'm guessing... blood."
It doesn't really occure to me what an accident prone person I am until I do my laundry.
Today I am grateful for:

Everyone I would like you to meet
[Sidenote: When I took this picture this morning, the bishop walked into my bathroom. He looked perplexed seeing me aim a camera at my face. But smiling he just said "I guess that's a good reason to have the light on" then walked away.]
Scribbles is my trusted notebook who has been with me since the begining of August.
Now, I know I've been bad to my blog, but I carry Scribbles with me everywhere and record the most random things.
So... until something amazing happens in my life, I'll be presenting
Excerpts from Scribbles

Saturday 8/28/10 10:56 a.m.- Provo, UT temple

I am so grateful for establishing the habit of coming to the temple every week. Not only does coming to the temple bless your life, but it also keeps me in check. I mean, could I come to the temple knowing I had commited some horrible sin? No, of course not. And that is why it is so great.

Especially when you're my age, temptation is rampant. Seriously, everyday there are probably ten bad things going on. Swear words, dirty jokes, immoral things. It would be so easy to succomb.

But who likes being a sissy and taking the easy route? :) and to be honest, the "harder route" becomes easier and easier.

It's like dance and math. Two things I greatly enjoy. There used to be nights when I would beat down on myself; I could hardly kick. Now, I'm complimented so often, that slowly it's become easier and much more enjoyable.

Same thing with math. There used to be the moments when I'd get so fed up or frustrated that I just wanted to give up and fail and assignment. Now, math is much easier. Am I a super genius in Calculus? Well, no. But it is easier and much more enjoyable for me to do now.

And I am extremely grateful for that.
