When it rains...Or snows...

I seem to have a lot of time on my hands now considering the recent snowfall in this amazing college what better time to blog?

Recently, my life has taken some quite unexpected turns. One in particular, has been the most life changing experience so far. It makes everything else seem so small and minuscule. Let's just say...count your blessings. I know that everyone says that but I'm being completely serious. You never know what will happen. Don't take people or your life for granted. Ever.

However, that isn't what I wanted this blog to be about.

I'm currently snowed in at my house. And, to be quite honest...I'm really frustrated with people right now. I just don't understand how inconsiderate some people can be. I don't understand when someone says that they will call/text and then they don't. Or that they will do something for me and then they don't. Can they not follow through? Do they not realize that every time they don't, I trust them less?

I'm tired of putting up with immaturity. Some of my friends say I need to relax and not plan things out or get so wound up when plans fall through...I'm sorry but that's who I am. I like plans and I like to follow through with them. Why do I have to change?

Also, this weekend has made me more aware than ever that I want to go to a different university for graduate school. I want a new beginning. A new start.

I can't think of anything better right now.

He's Just Not That Into You

I love love love this movie. And book. I've watched the movie about three times over the break so far and I'm thinking about renting it to watch again tonight. I just can't get enough of it. I'm not sure how much truth there is to it but it is entertaining none the less. I listed some of my favorite quotes from the movie and the book! Enjoy! :)

Don't be flattered that he misses you. He should miss you. You're deeply missable. However, he's still the same person who just broke up with you. Remember, the only reason he can miss you is because he's choosing, every day, not to be with you. - Book

I don't want to be "sort of dating" someone. I don't want to be "kinda hanging out" with someone. I don't want to spend a lot of energy suppressing my feelings so I appear uninvolved. I want to be involved. I want to be with someone I know I'll see again because they've already demonstrated to me that they're trustworthy and honorable -- and into me. - Book

"So trust me when I say if a guy is treating you like he doesn't give a shit, he genuinely doesn't give a shit. No exceptions." - Alex (movie)

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the un-returned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope." - Gigi (movie)

Happy 2010!

It is officially a new year! Yay! I'm glad to start a new year...seems like it was the perfect time to get some perspective on my life and to start over on a few parts of it.

I can think of a few things that I would like to do this year. I don't like to call them "resolutions" because I feel like its such a cliche and I probably won't do them. So, I just call them goals for the year.

I want to make it to church more often. I'm not one of those people that believes you have to go to church to worship or that going to church makes you a Christian, but I would like to start going more...for myself. I want to be more organized with my school work. Last semester, amazingly, turned out okay as far as grades but I would like to be more prepared for it. Maybe I won't have to pull as many last nights then lol. I also want to learn to cook. I know...that is probably the most challenging one. I just never seem to get it right...but, no time like the present to start trying! I'm sure there are more but I will just sum them up as being a better person in general.

So, here's to 2010! Hopefully one of the best years! :)

kmb: wild at heart.
