not settling.....yes PICKY!

so i just ran into an old "friend" the other day. he asked me what i was going to be doing in the summer of 2010. well i have NO CLUE! but then the convo changed to marriage...he said "you'll probably be married" and i immediately said "probably not". he came to the conclusion and repeated several times that i am TOO picky when he found out i didn't have a boyfriend. seriously? seriously? i just responded and said "i'm just not settling" ugh that made me so mad, but skipping class did make me feel much better after that =)

maggs just found this quote. i like it.

Ive made mistakes in my life
Ive let people take advantage of me and I accepted way less than I deserve
but Ive learned from my bad choices and even though there are some things I can never get back and PEOPLE WHO WILL NEVER BE SORRY
I'll know better next time and I wont settle for anything less than I deserve!

some prayer por favor

I have been blessed with an amazing job. I have been so thankful for mentors that have really strived to see me succeed. But this week I have run across a little trial. I feel like God completely dropped this in my lap because now I can use this situation to really show my faith. But right now i'm really struggling to find the thin line between "over-reacting" and standing up for myself. I am meeting with some people tomorrow and hopefully this will all get cleared up. I hate meeting and I hate confrontation and this is going to be a meeting FULL of confrontation! urgh. But if ya think about it pray for me tomorrow! Anways, I ran across these verses tonight which really encouraged me.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

so this is my vain attempt (mostly because of pure boredom) to draw what i seriously just saw happen on crazy MSU campus.

Amanda and i were pulling out of the union and this girl (I'm going to assume she is stuck up at this point) HITS this very nice bike rider with her dark green convertible mustang. she seriously just hits him. he stops obviously and it is looking down at his leg but then she has the nerve to get out of her car and make sure there were no scratches on it....then sees if the poor hit guy is ok!

Spartan at last.....

so classes started up at MSU last week. I've avoided going to MSU for a long time, going to 4 different schools over the course of 4 years. I've done my fare share of school shopping. The weird thing is...I love MSU. Seriously, the classes are interesting and walking around on campus I realized how beautiful is it. I actually saw Beaumont Tower yesterday. I've lived in Lansing my whole entire life and I dont think I really ever saw the tower or the "beautiful" grand river rushing over the rocks behind the international center. It was pretty cool. And living with my bro rocks. Except the other day he told me he couldnt find any butter. He needed 6 cups of butter for macaroni and cheese....

....yeah we have to work on the cooking skills department

its been awhile...

I haven't blogged on this thing in forever but i'm bored and theres tons of stuff goin on in my life....

I just got back from Mexico missions trip from Riverview. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. I was absolutely shocked by the poverty in Tijuana. I've never been to or seen anything like it. Although the conditions were rough people there were geniunely happy. Makes me feel selfish and very guilty for having everything I do. It was also a blast to get to know the 52 amazing people on the trip.

Another new experienced happened to me lately. I had a lady threaten me and our intern Molly at work last Friday. She threatened to "shoot us up"....which were her exact words. I wasn't scared at first because I was honestly laughing inside. But then after the second time she threatened us I got a little worried. She saw the evil glare I gave her and completely called me out on it. After she was taken to her vehicle the cops questioned us. I would have to say I didn't think working in the automotive business was that life-threatening. Apparenlty doing an oil-change is now a risky job. Yikes, what is this world coming to. The scary thing is that I close every night pretty much and I'm always by myself. So the cop gave me some great advice, "If she comes back and you see a gun make sure you take cover." Thank you. Thank you very much.

And this week my brother is moving in with me.....yeah! I have to admit I really really really miss living with my family. As annoying as they seem, living out on your own is very boring. Any of you who know my family knows that my house is a never ending constant circus. People in-people out! it's crazy. Also, Brent and I are pretty close so its going to be great having him around. Seriously, theres nobody in this world who makes me laugh more than him and I can't wait for him to be my roomie.

Thats it. Its' probably going to be another year before I write in this thing but I'll try to be better! Wish me luck at my more dangerous crazy customers

doctors = stupid

so i have had a sore throat the last oh, month. the doctor asked me if it hurts worse at night or morning. i told her at night. then she replies very professionally "maybe it hurts because of all the talking that you do"

oh i'm so glad i just wasted 2 hrs of my day off and $15 dollar co-pay just to get a conclusion that i talk too much.
