A Rose by Any Other Name…

Today was excellent.

Justin and I attended two grad parties to start out our day. They were fun to go to. I thought that my outfit was nice but I felt fat. I guess that is due to the fact that I am. Justin makes me feel beautiful though, so I thank him for that.

We left the party to stop by Justin’s house. There he made a copy of the MSA play so that he could make multiple copies up at church for the actors. I sat with Justin’s mom and grandma while he did that.

We then departed. We stopped at his old house to look for his tux since he needs it dry cleaned before the Ball. From there we made it to church, where we broke through walls to get to some supplies.

We then attended the MSA play. It was an intellectual play, and it made me happy that I pretty much understood it. We grabbed some Taco Bell after that, and now here I lay.

I absolutely love to observe people. They are so interesting. I watch them as if they were monkeys in the zoo. At grad parties people sometimes seem uncomfortable since they often do not know most of the people present. At plays, they sit there and watch the play, but fidget a lot if it is long.

At MSA, the people are very unique. A school that is smack dab in the middle of Woodbury does not resemble the "typical Woodbury family" at all. But this school is amazing, and I love it, and I hope to teach there someday.

I enjoyed my day with Justin. I felt loved by him and welcomed everywhere I was.

Congratulations to the graduates of 2006!

Day 2 of my Quest

I want to be more frequent with my posts. Maybe if I do it every night before bed this summer, I will post more during the school year also.

I worked today. I was able to hold the ferrets, and pet dogs and talk to birds. I really enjoy working there. Sometimes people may be crabby, but the animals are always pleasant.

After work I went to Friday Night Frenzy at church. It is always good to be there. I miss WLC since I hadn’t gone much this past semester. I am going to try to teach again this fall, despite high gas prices. After a little while of me being there, we started watching Indiana Jones. I had never seen it before. What horrible acting and special effects! But it was quite entertaining anyways. It was a good movie to watch, minus the foul language.

Justin was extremely hyper. He gets that way sometimes. I think its cute. John was there, and seemed in good mood. Others were annoying… I wonder sometimes why people don’t try harder to be nice and fun to be around.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about love. I wish people were happier in their relationships if they aren’t. I also wish I could help, but I do not always know what is going on. By observing people such as friends, strangers, those walking around, I can sense how their relationship is going. Not very specifically, but I can tell if there are problems and sometimes what the problem is. I feel like I could give them good advice if they were interested. I just want them to be happier.

A big part of the reason that Justin and I are still together and overall pretty happy is because we each have a relationship with God and we include him in our relationship.

Did you know that the statistic that says 50% of marriages fail is deceiving? It is talking about ALL marriages, not just first marriages. A lot less than 50% (I can’t remember exact, but around 25% or less) of first marriages fail. That means that 75%ish of first marriages succeed. That 25% of failed couples may go onto marry again, and a lot of those marriages fail. I think that is good to know because then maybe people would be a little less scared of marriage.

Well, it is getting close to closing time. So I shall bid you adou.
