How Disney ruined my life!

Basically the way that Disney ruined my life was that it ruined me for love in the rest of my life. Disney taught me that falling in love would be magical and perfect and ... well ... easy. But nothing in life is ever like that, is it? But I think that somehow I am going to meet some guy and our eyes will meet across the room and then he will sweep me off my feet and tada! LOVE! Why can't I just think that I will meet someone and we will get to know each other and then we will start to like each other and it will go from there? It has to be some perfect thing that happens and some awesome story that to tell my kids. Another thing that Disney did to me was to make me think that it is okay for women to be owned (so to speak) by men. Belle, for instance, went straight from her father to the Beast. Arielle too. And they were supposed to be the feminists! And how come all the women are beautiful, but the men are allowed to be hideous (beasts)? Grr! Stupid Disney, ruining my life ... grumble grumble grumble!

In other news, I know I haven't updated in a while, but it is cause I suck. I was told that I am not a true blogger since I don't update everyday. And although that is never going to happen, I can NOT update every day, but I can try to update more often since it has been almost a month. Work is going great - it is busy in a good way (most of the time, sometimes the days are long but ... it's work right?) I am way excited that I will be going to Utah in a few days. I only have two and a half days left at work before then! Yay! My bestest friend is getting married and I am flying in for the shortest trip ever so I can be there for it. Also, my mom will be there and my bro and his girlfriend I think, so that will be good. I won't get to see half the people I want to, but I am going to try my damndest!

I imagined that I would be happily dating someone by the time I went to the wedding so that my firned and I would have lots to girl talk about ... but still nothing. Probably because I don't make the effort to go and meet new people very often. I have went to church a few times but I keep hanging out with the BYU students that I work with so I am not really meeting any new people. I try to, but obviously not too hard. What am I going to do when they all leave? I have no friends in Oregon, and all the other people I work with (the ones who are staying) already have friends and family and lives around here so they don't want to hang out with me. Any thoughts on where and how I can meet new people?

Anyway, I have lots of things I could be doing - cleaning out my car, taking out the trash, taking out the recycling, getting groceries, working out - but I will probably go to bed instead and try to get a decent nights' sleep. Wish me luck. Maybe tomorrow I will have the energy to do the things that are on my list o' things to do. Not to mention I still need to get a few things before I leave to go to Utah that are going to come with me, but that will take a while, and I am trying to decide if I should find someone to drive me to the airport or if I should park'n'fly. Oh well, night time! Ugh, I also have to wash out my nose because I am getting phantom monkey smells! Blech!

hello mon ami. I'm so sorry Disney sucks so much, but I totally agree!

I finally figured out things don't work that way when I was 21 and was like, well...time to move on and make my own fun.

I hope you had fun this weekend! You'll have to post pictures of your trip when you return.
