if you wanna play come and play today

I feel like when every time I sign up for school and classes, I sit and trick myself into thinking finals week isn't going to happen.  I seriously hate finals week.
Even if I'm doing great in all my classes.
Even if I don't have any finals to take.
Even if I'm not even in school for the semester.
Finals week rolls around and every one I know starts to get high stress and high maintenance.
Thats what I get for surrounding myself with a bunch of brainiacs. 

Well Listen. Turns out this semester I do have kind of a lot of finals.
And a lot of tests I should be studying for.  
I should probably be feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

So when Monday rolled around this week, I prepared the only way that I thought would help me ace my finals.

I didn't open my text books or notes one dang time.

I was too busy eating costa vida and watching zoey 101.

I'll let you know how that plays out for me.

who knew victoria justice was in zoey 101?

cause in this jungle you can't run

Alrighty peeps.
You saw my last blog post.
You know what I'm gonna do.
I have amazing friends. Literally some of the most incredible, amazing, beautiful people in the world are MY friends.  And I think that you all should know them too.  I'm going to celebrate them. So try not to get too jealous of the people in my life, and enjoy my bragging and boasting.

We should probably start off with the girl that I talk about the absolute MOST.

Meet Jensen Nicholle Astle.

She's a fox, and oddly enough she's single.  Boys start lining up because if you're lucky I'll put in a good word for you.  I seriously talk about Jence so much.  I've even been accused of making her sound cooler than she really is.  BUT. I. DON'T.  She's just amazing.  Like for reals. People will start complaining to me about their life, and I automatically spit out, you should meet my friend Jence.

I'll tell you why.
This little beauty is a full time student at Utah Valley University.
She is on Student Government where she is the senator of the school of the Arts.
Sound legit right?
OH WAIT! there's more.
This girl also was on scholarship for the CAL program, and worked in the CAL office at UVU.
After she works her butt off at UVU all day, she attends part time Hair School at night.
She's been at hair school for about 2 years so she's started interning at Salon K as well.
Feeling overwhelmed yet? 
We're not even close to done.
She also has a job as a hostess at Tucano's in the riverwoods,
and works at Old Navy.
Did I mention she also makes time for me? And her million other friends.
I don't think I've ever been in public with Jensen without her running into someone who not only knows her, but absolutely adores her.

She's also been moved out and on her own since she graduated High School.

Told you I don't make her sound cooler than she really is.  She's legit.
I am proud beyond words of this girl and amazed at the fact that she is so busy, so dedicated, and still has the hugest heart of anyone you will ever meet.  If you anything, Jensen is your girl.  She even once gave me the shoes off her feet.  What!?! first friend to EVER share shoes with me. It was amazing.

So to Jensen, I love you, and I am SO proud of you.  You're going to accomplish great things. 

Just stop swearing.

I'm gonna pick up the pieces


Challenge accepted.

we don't even have to try its always a good time

Dude. "blog" is suuuuups close to the word "brag". Anyone else ever notice that? Because it is.  So imma go ahead and take this opportunity to Brag a tiny bit about the babiest brother i have.


Number 10:
He lets me take pictures of him. He doesn't necessarily love it, and I sort of feel that "like"maybe too strong of a word as well, but he lets me do it anyway.

Number 9:
He buys me beverages! Half the time I don't even have to ask, he'll just leave and then come back and hand me a beverage.  One time, he even jumped down Jensen's throat because he caught her stealing sips of the dr. pepper he had just got me. (side note, chubs doesn't like when people will you go get me a "drink" or someone bought me a "drink".  "Drink" is the verb, the action that takes place, beverage is the noun. So don't get it twisted)

Number 8:
Normal conversation between the 2 of us goes as follows
Me: Chubs wanna go to target?!
Chubs: No, not really.
Chubs: I really don't want to, but if you REALLY want me to go I will.
Me: Great because I really want you to!
Chubs: Fine, I'll drive.

Haaaaa. Like really? Does he not see that coming? He will never guilt me into not making him go. 

Number 7:
He cooks! And he is darn good cook at that.  I love coming home from work and chubs having a homemade dinner on the table for me.  No wonder I haven't moved out.

Number 6:
We do really cool things together. For instance, sometimes we go on bike rides, or canyon cruises, or go hangout with all the 7 year olds at Hang Time, or be extras in movies that really just involves us sitting there for 3 hours and its kind of the best!

Number 5:
He asks me to plan his dates, and then he does exactly what I plan for him, ANNND gives me credit for planning them.  Real life, I should be a professional date planner, I am just full of good ideas.

Number 4:
He scrapes off my car for me when it snows.

He lets me dress him, because half the time its way more fun to dress boys than it is to dress girls. 

Number 2: 
He gets along with my friends. 
Okay actually I'm still not sure this is a total pro.  I may or may not have a fear of coming home to find Jensen and Chubs MACKin out on the couch.  But whatevs.

annnnd the number 1 reason my little brother is cooler than yours:
because I'm pretty sure only bennett and bean read this blog and neither of you have little brothers. sucks to suck.

Confused at the grace

I can be grateful for the trials in my life, because I know that I will learn from them.
I can be grateful for the trials in my life because I know that something better is coming.
I can be grateful for the trials in my life because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me enough to give me them.

Sorry that I am more fun than you, and that my friends are more fun than yours.
