Sweetest Man Award

I am in no way bragging, but I kind of am...if that makes sense?! I am SO lucky. Yesterday I was at work, working a 9 hour shift. At my work there always has to be a manager and employee in the store at all times. Yesterday it was just me and my manager, but since I was working a 9 hour shift I got a 30 minute lunch. So, I ordered pita pit and had them deliver. I got a Dr.Pepper and it came in a soda bottle. When I went in the back and opened my drink it exploded, much like a volcano would I imagine, ALL over me! So, I am covered in Dr. Pepper, and SOAKING wet...not enjoyable to work in right?! Well, my manager wouldn't let me leave so I could either work in wet clothes and a huge brown spot on my pants and shirt or I could have someone bring me clothes. I couldn't even walk across the hall and buy another shirt. So I called this really sweet man, who dropped what he was doing to come get my apartment key, go to my apartment get the exact clothes I asked him to get and bring them to me. Yeah, so sweet. Then after I got off work I was really sick, and who was there to cater to my every need? Yep. He is pretty good to me. He definitely gets the sweetest man award. He is willing to do anything for me, especially if it makes me happy.

I want to change someone's life, for the better of course.

I want to step foot on every continent, well except for Antarctica.

I want to swim in every ocean.

I want to be successful at whatever I choose to do.

I want to inspire people.

I want to teach people how to treat others.

But mostly, I just want to know you want me as much as I want you.

I am blessed.

Sometimes I have time to sit and think. At these times I realize how blessed and amazing my life is. Everything always seems to work out, and I am so grateful for that. And I am grateful for the many amazing people in my life who care about me, worry about me, and constantly are willing to help me.

Sometimes I require people to tell me things to actually realize they are true. I'm sure I know it, but a verbal affirmation confirms it to me. For example, I was at work today having a conversation with a co-worker...
Me: "Oh yeah, that's who I'm dating, you know him?"
Co-Worker:"Oh my goodness! yes! I am so happy your dating him! He is the sweetest guy! You deserve a guy like that."
Me;"Yeah, he is pretty great(While thinking to myself 'wow, he really is sweet')"

I think the thing is I know he is a good guy and sweet, it just makes me feel good to hear it from multiple other people. It makes me realize how lucky I am.

In another conversation with some other co-workers we talked of how everyone we graduated with are married with one or two children, getting divorced and so on, and we are still single and without children. I'm not saying that being married is bad or having multiple children at my age is bad. I'm just grateful that I have taken the path that I have. I'm happy I have been able to grow as an individual, and realize who I am. I am grateful I have been able to accomplish many of my goals, and to have many of the wonderful and horrible experiences I have had, that I wouldn't of otherwise had, had I been married. I am so grateful for the people I have come into contact with who have changed my life, that I would have never met had I chosen a different path. I'm okay being by myself, I know who I am, and I am comfortable with me. In fact, I was having a disagreement with "the man" the other day about something and I said, "It's who I am, you can either deal with it or leave." Because I am confident with who I am, and I'm not going to change to appease someone else(well at least the core of me, my values and such. Some bad habits like staying up too late, always being late, and poor eating habits could change and go...ha ha), no matter how cute.

I appreciate my wonderful family who have always been supportive, and advised me to go after my dreams. I definitely would not have been able to make the choices I have and be where I am without them, and all the love and guidance they have shown me.

Anyways...I was just thinking of how blessed and grateful I am, and that I probably should voice(write) my appreciation.

It's an adventure for sure.

Do you ever have something on your mind, but no way to express it in words? Welcome to my life the past week. I've had so much on my mind as of late, and have been so busy, life is literally crazy. I feel like I have gone through a roller coaster of emotions in the last week. I started my new job and got yelled at three times before the end of my second shift, wonderful to say the least. I don't understand how people feel they have the right to treat others so poorly. Especially when I was in no way in the wrong, but in fact they were. I started at my new school, and besides having to do busy work for the first little bit, I am enjoying it. The girls are friendly and the instructors and nice and willing to help. I finished at Utah State, and hopefully did pretty well on some of my classes...I have continued work at BBW, while things are ever changing there, and it gets less fun to go to work. I have been packing to move, and leave one of the best roommates I've ever had. Which has lead to a down turn on the roller coaster because, it really upsets me to probably never see her again. I have been spending a lot of time with some of my closest friends, and I have made some amazing memories. I took the man I am "officially" dating now home to meet the parents. I became "official" with aforementioned man. Even though sometimes he drives me crazy The man I am dating is going to be moving in with my ex-best friend/still best friend. I have been eating one-two meals a day, and not healthy food at that. I have been sleeping 4-6 hours a night, when I really need 7-8. Yeah, I can hope that will change, but lets be honest, who sleeps when there is fun stuff to do?! I truly love summer time! I am so excited for all the new paths my life is taking. I am excited for the challenges, the adventures, the experiences, and the memories. Now if only I can stay calm for all of this...ha ha!
