|dont be initially alarmed, these flowers are not from a boy|
(psh! like that would ever happen!)
yesterday was not the greatest of days but this post is not to complain about the negative it is to hiphiphorray about the positive!! long story short, i came back to my dorm after work with puffy eyes and heartache and all i was thinking is that i wish i was back at home having my best friend console me. silly me! i have the most incredible best friends HERE. my friends recognized i was down and wanted to do something about it. geez i am so darn blessed to have friends in provo who i genuinely can say will be by my side for the rest of my life.
rach and lily bought me these beautiful sunflowers and wrote me the most heartfelt notes in the world. i cannot thank these two girls enough for the love they offer me. they will drop everything if i ever needed them. they live about two steps away form me and i know that it isnt just coincidence. we need each other. rachel, you define a 'good friend' you hang up on your boyfriend for me, you dance absurd dance moves with me until the sun comes up, you kill me with your humor, you are confident, you write cute notes for me and let me use your sea breeze and zatzip, you're a marvelous individual whom i aspire to be like. elizabeth, what we have is so unique. you were an answer to my prayers this summer and you continue to be that everyday. you are 'wonderful, amazing, and beautiful.' we prove that opposites attract- honestly, it doesn't get more opposite than us, and that is why i love you so dearly. you're kind words, passion and a real love for your family/friends inspires me to be a better friend. i will forever try to be that loyal of a friend as you are, because that kind of person changes lives.
i talked with my roomie of all roomies brooke for a while. i know, we all gawk over her blog, adborb sense of style, and ridiculous sarcasm but brooke is all that but so much more to me. she is the best room mate on the face of the earth. i could not imagine living with anyone else but her. she is the best advice giver by most of all she is the one who confirms the idea that everything is going to be okay, in the most casual way ever. i hope that makes sense because it is one of my favorite traits about her. brooke is the person that all my friends are jealous of, she is the girl you think "i need to go to the gym,"when you see her hot donna toned legs, she is the girl we all want to be like, she is the daughter we all want to have, but best of all, she is my best friend. on a lighter note, our sense of causality together tends to get carried away quite often haha, but really it can get a little scary, but it honestly is the way i want to live my life forever. when things go bad, just think "its not even a big deal." because, under few circumstances, nothing is as big of a deal as we ever make.
after all this occurred, i spent some time with the lovely lady, kendall blake. as we danced to christmas music from a real record machine in her christmas lit room, ate 5 million cuties, and talked about our future travel plans, i didnt even think about my crappy day. her bright smile, curly blond hair, twitchy eye face, ambition for life, and her sense of selflessness is so encouraging; she encourages me to be a little bit better, just with her sweet spirit alone. then she gets talking and its a whole new level of inspiring! i love kendall so so SO so much and we are going to take the world over, one country at a time! (...she just got back from biking all over vietnam, cambodia and thailand, how cool is she?!)
and to my other dear friends at byu, thanks for being so kind to me. i am truly so blessed to be able to associate myself with such Christlike people here. heaven knows i need all of you!!!...and i thank the heavens everyday for all your love in my life!
