Types of weirdos

Okay this may sound like kind of a harsh post, but really, it's just meant to be entertaining.

So as far as I can tell there are a few distinct categories of weird people. I have taken the liberty to rate their weirdness scale from 1-10, 1 being someone who you practically have a crush on (not a romantic crush, the kind where you just want to be best friends forever) and 10 is me running away because I am so uncomfortable.

1. Those who are super-duper nice, so nice that the make you feel like a horrible person for thinking they are kinda weird. Weirdness factor:5-6 You still talk to them because they are so nice and because you can still carry on a conversation without wanting to escape.

2. Those who you can't tell right away are weird, but after a few minutes you recognize them. These guys are alright, and may just make a couple odd comments that you don't quite get, or laugh at something that you didn't think was funny at all. You're friends with them at work/class, but probably won't call them to hang out. Weirdness factor: 4-5

3. Those weird people that think they are super awesome but are, in fact, weird. They are usually also kind of mean. Because they think they are awesome and think they are better than you. To each his own. Weirdness factor: Ranges a lot, but I would say their overall coolness factor goes down like 30% because they are rude. Which, sadly, puts some people in the negatives.

4. Those who recognize their weirdness and run with it. They find enjoyment out of freaking people out and pushing the limit. They are usually the ones you can spot a mile away. I like that they are comfortable with themselves and go with it. Then again, they usually make me really uncomfortable. Good for stories though. Weirdness Factor: 11?

5. Those who call themselves nerds or say they are weird, but are, in reality awesome. They are quirky but not weird, an individual but not off in their own world. Basically I want to meet these people. Weirdness factor: 1-3. Can range a little depending on how eccentric they actually are.

Note: For all the types listed, except for the meanies, their weirdness scores do not affect their overall coolness factor. Most of the times they are pretty cool. In fact I feel like most famous people throughout time have probably been in one of these categories.

Did I forget any??

PS. I don't think I am excluded from these categories... in fact I could very well freak people out all the time. Buuuut I would hope that I am not #4. I mean if I am, I totally need to start freaking people out on purpose or something.

PS.PS. This is a random post, but one of my new roommates is #3. I mean she can be nice, but I can tell she is one of those people that will be mean behind your back. We will not be becoming good friends. Which is okay, because I am sure she thinks she is way too awesome to talk to me outside of our apartment. I mean she has made out with guys all over campus. And has a list of all of those places. Doesn't that make her automatically the coolest person on campus??

(You can tell I'm in summer school by the amount of naps I take)

      "For he is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever; and the way is prepared for all men from the foundation of the world, if it so be that they repent and come unto him.
       For he that diligently seeketh shall find"

1 Nephi 10:18-19

Really enjoying my Book of Mormon classes so far. It's like English, but we are studying scriptures!

PS. Had to bring in one poem we loved and one we hated for my Fundamental Literary Interpretations class and I brought in this gem by Mandy. I may have to frame all her poems and put them on my wall someday. Love them. (Hers was the one I loved... duhh. Oh and if you read this Mandy, my teacher said to tell you good job!)

Happy Father's Day!

"Hold on!" you say? "Father's Day isn't till Sunday silly, you are a couple days too early!" you say?

Well that just makes this post even more exciting in my book because you get the joy of reading this when there isn't an influx of love for Dad. 

Aaaand because I feel like writing it now. You guys are just way too spoiled.

I gots my Dad a card for Father's Day, and because I felt so clever I decided to share it with you (minus the personal note on the left inner side, cause that part is boring.)

See?? See how I added in that oh-so vital top line so that the card included me?

I know, I know. I'm pretty special right?

Anddd I'm Off!!!

Goodbye California, hello Utah!

Dear Utah,

I hope you will not be quite so hot as CA during this time of year, though I understand you do still get hot. I was kina hoping to stay cooler, so it would be pretty awesome if you were. I can't wait to see your mountains all summer, instead of these dried out hills that I am used to seeing. Please be good to me.

Confession: Okay, I'm all about sleeping in, but since the semester ended a few weeks ago my sleeping schedule has gotten cuh-razy. Pretty much I have been staying up till at least 3, closer to 5 (:30).

I mean, what the?

And this has been leading me to sleep in very, very late. I'd disclose the times, but I am a bit too embarrassed to say. Especially the time I woke up today. I was horrified when I looked at the time. Whoops!

So any tips to get my sleeping schedule back on time? Try to go to sleep a little earlier and then wake up way early so that I am tired for the next night? I was intrigued by Natalie's post about Trader Joe's Melatonin, but I have been wary of dependence on sleep drugs.

PS. Last night I watched How to Marry a Millionaire. Wayyy cute if you haven't seen it. I'm beginning to fall in love with Marilyn Monroe movies. I may or may not have also watched Gentlemen Prefer Blondes yesterday too.

Misty water-colored memories, of the way we were

Remember The Nanny? I've been watching it lately, and I just remember how much I loved watching it back in the day. (Remember Fran's love of Barbara Streisand? Hence the title)

It's so surprising though to see how fuzzy the video is.... makes me feel old to see how far technology has come in my lifetime!

I also have to say that this show has one of the best show theme songs. Love it.

What are some of your classic shows from your childhood?

Some of my other ones are Gilmore Girls, Friends, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, aaaand I can't think of anymore, help a girl out??

PS. I have also been enjoying Nesquick chocolate milk. Reverting back to childhood much?

{Lookeee! Don't I look so blissful that I was back with my friend??}

So whenever I go on roadtrips, I am always the one in the back sleeping. I never drive, mainly because people know that I'm not the best driver.

Driving through the mountains as  we made out way to Rexburg, ID going through Salt Lake City first, I was reminded of my upcoming drive to BYU for the summer term and grew concerned of my ability to a) drive there without falling asleep b) getting lost and c) getting my car UP the mountain as it has a hard time on our local hills.

But I'm sure it'll be fine, and the video below sure made me feel better about my driving skills. When I first saw it I was in Idaho with a bunch of friends and I literally had tears streaming down my face. When I showed it to my sister, I was cracking up but it wasn't quite as funny. I hope your experience watching it is like my first time!
