So my good friend Chris is such a great example of making lists. I decided it was about time for me to make one of my own. And no, it's not my top 5 list of girls at sparks II. I have only shared that list with one person.

So I was looking through my old yearbooks for the most interesting quotes. There were plenty of things that people wrote that were very sentimental but these aren't those. In no particular order:

1. Dave, You are the awesomest weirdo I know. Your dad’s name is Waldo, and you are ambiguously awesome! Peace. (Not everybody can be the awesomest weirdo, extra points for using ambiguously)

2. Dave- Have a Super summer! You are a Hottie! -Dianna –pizza hut- (Not very many people have the privilege of having the hot waitress at pizza hut sign their yearbooks)

3. Dave- Hey! Thanks for all the help in cheer! You are the best yell leader! (Funny because I was not a yell leader)

4. David- You are a cool dude. I hope you die. You have been a good friend and I hope it lasts forever. –Bottom Feeder (Rather contradicting, wanting me to die yet have a friendship that lasts forever, and who is this bottom feeder?)

5. Dave Dave Dave, You are hot j/k Have fun this summer. (j/k? that's messed up)

6. Dave- Tab Warriors Rule! We’re Seniors. You know what’s cool, we say that every year basically. (I don’t think we have said any of that more than once in our lives)

7. Dave- Thanks for being my husband! You’re so great! Have fun in the world w/o me. You’re the best! -P.S. sing more- you’re great at it. (See ladies I make a great husband! and I sing well!)

8. Dave, You’re so cool! Seriously of all the people to be friends with you’re like #4 on the list! Really, you’re cool. Choir was fun. Se ya around! (#4 really isn't that bad when you think about it)

9. Dave, For such a smart kid you sure act strange. (Is this a complement?)

10. -David- Be a nice kid during the summer, then come back and be yourself. (I don't know what they are implying)

Honorable Mention

*I hope you make it into the WNBA with me –Ben

*David, who don’t you want?

Funny Dating Story

Sorry for getting your hopes up if you actually thought this story was about ME going on a date.

So my good friend and I like to "joke around" sometimes, last night happened to be one of those times. I was sitting in my apartment about to start watching a movie and I decided I would text her. I said, "My lips are lonely". She didn't text back and I was a little bit sad that I didn't get a better response.

Well to my great pleasure, today I learned that she had been on a date last night and that she did get my text and the response was much better than I could have ever anticipated. Not only did she see it, but her date saw it as well. She had a lot of explaining to do... She tried to convince them that she wasn't a player and that the most we had ever done was high five maybe.

Anyway, I thought this was pretty funny. My lips are still lonely though...

Seize The Day

So I decided it is about time I started one of these blogs... As I pondered what great things I should divulge, I decided to write about something deeper than my usual thoughts. Don't worry there will be plenty of craziness and awkward moments to come!

I have been thinking lately about how valuable time is. Like usual, this realization came due to a discovery of how time is running out. A lot is changing in my life right now and I’m not sure I'm ready to let go of the way things are. Luckily, I will always have the great memories of the past and will be able to continue to create many more.

Things changing... The last week and a half I have kind of disappeared. The reason is that one of my all time favorite cousins, Audrey, is in town. She along with my brother and I have had many adventures the last week and a half, and have for many years. Unfortunately, for me, this will be our last hurrah as she is most likely to be engaged in the near future.

Not only is this the last time the three of us will be able to hang out like this, but my brother as well. He leaves for his mission in Mongolia in October. Things will not be the same when he gets back, who knows I may be married... I have really enjoyed this time to spend with both of them, as well as my amazing mother and father.

If that wasn't enough to make me think, I begin my official career as a fourth grade teacher in about two weeks, CRAZY! Am I really that grown up? Don't answer that! Anyway, you can see why time has been on my mind.

It is so important for each one of us to value every moment of every day! Time is something that can not be made up. We can, and must, learn from everything we do, but we can never get back time that we have wasted.

So let us work together to continue to have great times together and remind each other of all those we have already had. I will do my best to keep this updated with those memories. Thank you for your friendship and all you have done to make me who I am today. I wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without you!
