Today while sitting in my Developmental Psychology class we were talking about The Family unit... blah blah blah... yeah I know that... I'm pretty sure I learned this stuff in my last class.
3:30-- the bear wakes up!
Then we started talking about families with gay and lesbian parents... Courtney (the grad student who teaches the class) then decides to just refer to them as GLBT families; actually meaning gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, trans-gendered... I think? This was a bad idea! I couldn't focus at all, and whenever she said GLBT my mind wondered even more.
GLBT; my new and fantastic acronym for a delicious sandwich! This sandwich can be enjoyed by those who are straight, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or trans-gendered... it covers all bases! The GLBT consists of guacamole (because avocados just aren't enough), lettuce, bacon, and tomato. Doesn't that sound so fantastic?! Answer: Yes, it sure does.
Well, that is what I learned today during Developmental Psychology.

-The garbage disposal. I don't think you truly understand just how important the garbage disposal is until you go to college, don't have one and have a stinky that smells funny. What was once just sent down the drain now has to be carefully scraped off your plate and thrown in the garbage where it will then make your whole apartment smell weird.
-The washer and dryer in your home. Maybe this one is a no brainer, but not having the ability to do your laundry in your own home (where it is supposed to be done) really stinks. For example, a while ago I was going to do my laundry up at school (amazing, I know) and I was walking from my apartment to the laundry room with all my dirty clothes in tow. I opened the door to enter the main building and as I raise my eyes there is a whole group of guys from my ward standing right there. Talk about AWKWARD! I'm sitting there with all my dirty laundry; if it had been clean that is a different story. Clean laundry is attractive, it smells nice, it's fluffy... and it's not dirty, crumpled up, shoved in a basket and most of all people know where it has been.
-The dishwasher! Oh how I love thee! I can place my dirty dishes in you and some special soap, press a magic button, walk away, and when I come back you have graciously not only cleaned my dishes but have allowed them to dry within you. I think I love you.
-The oven light and window. I have a poor person over up at school :( Not only does it not have an oven light, but there is not awesome little window on the front so you can check up on what your baking without opening the door. Opening the door isn't that much of a hassle. Goodness, I'm not completely lazy. I just hate the fact that I like to check on my lovely baked goods fairly often. I wouldn't have to check on them so often if our temperature settings on the over actually worked correctly.
As of right now my one desire is to have a garbage disposal! One day I will be able to afford an apartment with this luxurious item... one day.

I totally wish I had the time to make super cutie headbands like Lauren does! I think she has a great blog; she is an amazing photographer, she makes cutie head bands, and her outfits/ style is to die for! In short: Busy Bee Lauren, you ROCK!
When my brother saw that they were doing the giveaway he sent me a text telling me to enter because he thought I would love the dress. Which I did LOVE! I had already entered by the time I read his text, but I told him that he should enter for me. His reply was "don't worry, I already did". I'm pretty sure I have the best little (bigger brother) on the face of the planet!
Well the days go by and I'm curious to know who ends up winning. On Friday Jake and Calvin post on Facebook wondering if the can re-draw if they don't like the outcome of their drawing, as I read that I thought to myself "no, that's dishonest" thinking that they probably didn't think the girl was cute enough or something. Then I thought "what if they had picked my name" wouldn't that be sad if they had picked me and didn't think I was cute enough for the dress. I decided to let it go thinking that I had no chance of winning the oh so very pretty dress.
It's a Saturday night and I have nothing to do, so of course I go check my blog dashboard. Oh look, MBP is announcing who one the giveaway. [I start reading].
The next part is my thoughts while reading.
Oh, some girl who looks like she is kind of a punk and isn't even modest in her profile picture... wait, it says she didn't end up winning because her post wasn't valid.
The next girl didn't win either
Neither did the next. What is up with all these girls who win but didn't acutally win because their post wasn't valid
[I scroll to the end]
WAIT!!!! That's a picture of MY BROTHER! Start reading NOW!
My brother WON! Haha sucker girls, a fifteen year old guy won! Well, sort of... I'm kind of more the "Not too shabby, Shabby Apple winner"! My brother is giving the dress to me for my birthday when I get home from school on the 7th.
Best Boring Saturday Night EVER!
Thank you Jason, Jake and Calvin. I will love you forever and ever!

So basically MBP is giving away a Shabby Apple dress :) If there is one thing that I do love it's the word free! I also LOVE MBP; almost as much as I love when I have the chance to get something really cute. All I have to say is gimme, gimme*! I want that dress!
* I would never say that in real life. I only used it for the purpose of writing this blog, I in no way expect to be given things.

He's fine. The end.
Basically it wasn't all that great of a letter, but it still made my day. He sent me a picture! I'm excited to add it to my "stalker wall". Haha it's totally not a stalker wall though, he gave me all of those pictures... so it's all good.
The exact letter (for those of you who actually want to know what he sends me)
Thank you! Thank you for finally writing me a letter. When I read the return address on the letter I got way mad. I hadn't gotten mail from anyone for a long time. So when I read the return address and I didn't recognize it I got ticked but then as I read it I got a lot happier. It is a miracle It got to me. You mailed it to the MTC in Sao Paulo and from there they recognized my name (because I'm a legend there) and sent the letter with the missionaries coming to my mission. So you're lucky.
I thoroughly enjoyed the colorful letter, it was quite creative, the picture you drew of me was practically a photo. You have a good memory of how I look, tall and skinny :). It's good to hear you're hitting the books. Don't forget to read your scriptures as well! There is so much to be learned in the standard works. Just get the institute study manual and off you go. There is so much more than just "reading your scriptures" I am a year and 2 months on my mission and I still am studying Alma. You're a good girl (lady now, sorry) I know you can do it. So it was a little strange to hear you had a guy in your life. Little Kelsey has grown up. I especially liked the way you praised him, "he was a wonderful guy, and now he is gone..." I liked it a lot.
How do you know about Kayla? No I don't know, I haven't gotten a letter from her in a long time so I don't know what exactly is going on. But yeah, not important...
Things are going okay here. It's wicked hot! I am learning kung fu! When I get home I might be a white belt (the worst) but now I can hit someone and say "yeah, I meant to do that!". But yeah my life is pretty much going great. It has its ups and downs. My comp is dead, we are both going crazy from not getting letters etc... but other than that we're on the lords errand now so that is good.
I hope you gave a huge hug to everyone, especially those leaving on missions for me. It not you need to repent and do it :).
Kelsey, thanks again for the letter, I truly enjoyed hearing from you, and I hope to hear from you soon. Miss you tons! Tchau.
Well that is about all that is going on right now. I still miss him like crazy!
PS. I'm not waiting for him! I just miss one of my best friends.

Reason numero uno: I'm wearing cut off jeans
2: I'm wearing knee high socks under my cut off jeans
2.5: My knee high socks totally don't match!
3: I think I did really well on my statistics midterm
4: Jake and Calvin commented on one of my posts! It possibly might not have been them, but oh well I did an extreme happy dance!
5: I have the best April Fools day prank/joke up my sleeve! (more disturbing details to come!)
