utah has turned into seattle. and i am not complaining at all. as much as i love summer and laying out, i have found comfort in the recent downpour of water. rain. it replenishes our earth. it provides us with beautiful flowers. it keeps our rivers and lakes intact. it gives us the opportunity to sing and dance with no worries (with tap shoes, if you would like). it has started a fashion trend=rainboots. it has formed puddles that we can play in til we are soaking wet. it gives us sweet music to listen to as it pitter patters against our window.yes, rain may be gloomy, but it also gives us the chance to be grateful for the sun as well. and it's sorta nice to have a break from the billion degree utah weather that occurs in the summer. so rain rain don't go away. you are fitting my mood perfectly right now. keep coming until i decide that clouds are not the best therapy.

ingrid spoke to me today. she tends to do that a lot. i have been thinking a lot about my home aka sandy. i know it's only twenty minutes from my humble abode of the deeg, but it has gained some very special importance to me this semester. i never realized how much i take for the granted the beautiful place i was raised in. at one point i thought my life had moved up to the u, to the big city of salt lake, but now i am realizing, my life is still residing in sandy and i am so very happy it has waited for me there. every time i take the drive to foothill blvd, hop on the i-215, say hello to suicide rock, pass the ocean and molcasalsa, take a glimpse at all the fast food joints i kept in business as a high schooler, then take that right turn onto creek road, i realize that i am home and it's comforting. it's that safe zone that some don't get. i use to hate this drive. and now i cherish it and do everything in my power to stay in that bubble. the people that love me most. my parents and nerdherd. they reside in this small bubble and it's nice to know that i can always just take a twenty minute drive to return to it. i have never been so ecstatic to enjoy my summer in sandy. i forgot how much i love the nice weather there. the trees are different, almost like they carry an innocence (ya that sounded way crazy i know) i'd like to thank ingrid and her great song "are we there yet" for helping me remember where the heart is, and that i have definitely found my home.

born like sisters to this world
in a town where blood ties are only blood
if you never say your name out loud to anyone
they can never ever call by it
if i kiss you where it's sore
will you feel better?
will you feel anything at all?

here is one that is lucky to have made the cut this year. downside: SO EXPENSIVE! that's the thing i don't understand about swimsuits. with the lack of fabric that is used you would think they wouldn't cost as much as a shirt, jeans and shoes combined together. and really, is a swimsuit that worth it. it's frustrating because i am in love with these swimsuits that cost as much as my left arm...i don't think that made sense.
on a lighter note, spring break t minus 7 days. can't wait to be sleeping next to the pacific ocean where hopefully i can catch a few rays and come back with a glow. i am in desperate need of this vaca. i know i say that each time...but i really mean it on this trip.
as for this swimsuit. so long. my budget just isn't going to cut it for you. boo.

2. running miles through the avenues.
3. discovering new music that no one knows about.
4. online shopping. expecting a delivery any day now actually.
5. cuddling. it makes you feel so safe.
6. finding a quote and applying it to my day.
7. fuzzy socks. my feet have a circulation problem apparently.
8. long drives at night with the best of friends.
10. star gazing. it's great when you get a shooting star to wish on.
i feel like with a busy schedule, i never seem to sit back and realize just how great my life is. okay so there are times where i am almost positive lady luck is out to get me, however, i am beginning to understand that maybe it's a test. and i am experiencing lessons that i must overcome and learn from. yes, i am just figuring this out. it's that whole patient stubborn attitude i was so lucky to gain as a child. here is my list, i suggest you make one too. because i guess it's always nice to be terribly happy.

to my girls of nerdherd,
i just realized that i have never given a shout out to you girls. you all were and are my everything ever since middle slash high school. vanessa.sarah.jaclyn.jill.laurenr.laurenp.haley. seven girls that i have stuck with through all my teenage experiences. each one bring a greater quality to our group that was named nerdherd by that boy i use to crush on. we have grown up together, inspiring each other to be the best of friends. now we are getting a little older, two of you are engaged, getting married in less than six months. i don't see you as often anymore because of all our different schedules and busy lives, but when we do get together it is like the olc times. the times where our voice volume rises quickly, the loudest gets to talk of course. you seem to always make me forget about my busy life and sit back and enjoy myself. life would not be the same without you, and i definitely would not be the person i am today if it weren't for the friendship and lvoe each of you brought to our group. forever and always nerd herd.
here's to our old memories and the many more exciting ones to come.

-stop drinking diet coke (two days down, 363 more to go)
-work out three times a week
-each morning wake up with the mindset "it's going to be a good day"
-make a library visit at least two times a week, even if it's not entirely necessary
i am looking at 2010 as my new start to a better person i want to grow into. although these resolutions are pretty generic, i am looking forward to this new year because i am looking at it as that fresh start (i know, it's pretty cliche) we will see how it ends up.
