This is What You Were Waiting For. . .

23 01 2011

So I will give you all an update on my life since I haven’t posted much of anything going on in the last month or so.

1. I have begun my final semester at BYU.  I really can’t believe it still.  I will graduate in less than 3 months now.  So my semester consists of (a) For Profit and Non-Profit Finance, (b) Business Writing, (c) Facility Planning and (d) Pioneers and Persecution.  I am also helping teach the lifeguard class, so that is fun for me.  The semester hasn’t gotten too hard for me yet.  We will see how it goes in just a few weeks.

2. I have been looking for an internship for this summer.  I put in one application so far and have a couple waiting on standby for when the application process opens up.  This one I applied for is to be the aquatics manager at Seven Peaks Water Park here in Provo.  If I got the position I would be in charge or about 100 lifeguards, the water attractions, and swim lessons.  They emailed me a few questions and after I responded, they said they would contact me next week to set up a face interview.  I am pretty excited and I feel confident that I could do a good job.

3. Oh yea, surgery was now 5 weeks ago and I have been healing pretty well.  I am super excited because I am allowed to be active again next week.  I have started looking at new athletic swimsuits.  I just keep forgetting to use the measuring tape at work to measure myself and see what size of a suit I need to get.  This picture is of one of the suits I am looking at.  The other option right now is a solid black suit that would be easy to use anytime.

4. My Christmas was spent here in Utah.  Because of surgery, I stayed with some family friends in Orem.  They were super awesome to take care of me and I am way grateful for all of my friends that came to visit me.  I have a couple super sweet stories from some super sweet friends.

  • So Jill beat me to the Spaldings’ house after the surgery because we stopped at Target to get my pain killers.  I was so drugged up from coming out of the anesthesia, but I remember looking at hair and commenting, “My hair isn’t this color.”  I guess my hair must have come out of the shower cap thing and gotten in the way because I had blood soaked hair.  Well, Jill is a lab-tech and blood doesn’t bother her so she washed out my hair for me and then braided it so it wouldn’t be in my way.
  • That night Brad came over to see me.  Karen (my stand-in grandma) answered the door and the first thing he asks her is she is taking good care of me.  Of course Karen says she is taking good care of me and that they are happy to have me because I am a sweet girl.  Brad agrees that I am a super sweet girl.  He then comes downstairs where I am cuddles up in a blanket hiding some of the blood that soaked through my shirt and talk with him for a little bit.  He brought me a whole box of See’s Chocolates.  Like a whole pound.  That isn’t just a few pieces. (it took me 2 or 3 weeks to finish it).  Brad noticed that their was a piano in the room so he asked if he could play me a song.  He played “Away in a Manger.”  He played through once and then he played again singing all of the verses for me.  He knows I really like piano music so it was special to me.  He had to of known I was growing to be interested in him.  Before he left he told me he liked where we were with our friendship and didn’t want to pursue it farther.  I was so mellow from the drugs and just said “ok.”  I can’t believe I didn’t ask why and still don’t know to this day.  Then he kissed me on the forehead before leaving.  Even though this story has a sad ending, it was still special to me with just having him chill with me, bring chocolate, and play the piano for me.
  • During the Christmas festivities, the kids couldn’t understand that I couldn’t rough house with them and were definitely too rough on me.  Finally Christmas evening I was done and went to my room to read the book that the Spaldings gave me.  I had been texting Bronson throughout the day cuz we are awesome like that.  He was telling me about how he just got home from his sisters and was going to just relax and read a book.  Tom (stand-in grandpa) came in and told me I had a guest in the living room.  There was Bronson.  He apologized for lying to me, he just wanted to surprise me.  He brought me a present too.  He apologized for being a boy and not knowing what lotion stuff smelled good so his mom chose that for me.  I approved though.  But even though he brought me a gift, I loved just sitting there and talking with him.  I really couldn’t ask for more.  He was my home teacher last year and is now one of my best friends and I know I can talk to him about anything.  He is a wonderful gift given to me by life and I wouldn’t trade him for anything.
  • The day after Christmas, Rob texted me to see how I was feeling.  I told him I was doing well except for the fact the kids were a bit too rough on me and I was in some pain from that.  Instead of texting me back, he immediately called and told me that I need to be relaxing and he doesn’t want me hurt more than I need to be.  It made me laugh, it was cute, but I do understand his concern.

5. I am currently on a dating strike.  I won’t go into detail of why I chose to do this.  Not too many people know right now.  I have been on this strike for like 2 weeks now.  I do have one friend who wants me to break this strike and go on a blind date with a friend of hers. I agreed to him getting my number so we will see what happens, but he hasn’t called yet.
