January

So far this month has been pretty interesting:



--I got a new hair color ("chocolate") and cut.

--I got to teach nutrition in an "alternative" high school.

--I went to Seattle to visit my old BYU friend Sarah

--I've been snowbound for 2 days.



My new.. kind of expensive.. hair.






I went to Seattle this weekend to visit my friend. We had a lot of fun, and luckily, the weather was good for the drive there and the drive back. I finally met Sarah's husband and stayed in her apartment that was almost robbed (not while I was there thank goodness). We went to a cool part of Seattle-Broadway--and ate at a Vietnamese restaurant. I had the soup "pho" (pronounced fuh, like f$%k, haha), which was totally delicious. We then cruised (hah barely.. it was FREEZING) the street and stopped at a dessert place called Dilettante. Again, wonderful. On Sunday, I went to church with her in Bellevue and met some interesting people there. We hung out with some of Sarah's husband's friends later that day, and I was able to taste some yummy Panamanian food. Monday morning, Sarah and I went to Pike Place Market and looked at some shops and stuff. To sum it up, I had a great time over the 3-day weekend.

And now.. Portland is all crazy filled with snow. My class was cancelled today, and I was sent home from my internship early yesterday. I went stir crazy today and had to brave the treacherous road conditions to leave the house. I went and saw one of the best movies EVER today--"Children of Men". I highly recommend it. Wow. Seriously. Go see it.

Ok so yeah.. that's my life.

My next EX

Well, I have been dating someone long distance, and I kind of ended it my birthday weekend, like 4 weeks ago.

We've remained in contact, because I wasn't sure whether or not to do so.

But, we've mutually agreed to step back for a bit. I'm glad we did this because I can focus more on school and getting stuff done. It does make me sad because he's been in my life for 3-4 months now, and he's always been there for me to talk to.

However, I am now totally single, which means.. I don't really have a life besides my own.

Eh.. this is my life.

Here's a picture from my birthday dinner. My shirt is all poofed out, so I look fat; otherwise, the picture is great.

Me and my possible next boyfriend

Ok, so I admit.. I don't have the most interesting life.

The past few days, I've pretty much just gone to my internship at the Oregon Dairy Council, gone grocery shopping, and gone home to bed before 10 PM. Oh, and don't forget working on homework. Hmmmm.

But, last night, I had like the most interesting dream I've ever had:

Jake Gyllenhaal and I were dating.

That's right. Me and Jake were so Brokeback... Well, I guess that doesn't really work.

Anyways, the details are a bit fuzzy, but I distinctly remember Jake trying to talk to me about his ex-girlfriend Kirsten Dunst. Yeah Jake, you may be a movie star, but don't think you can disturb my beautiful dreams with ex talk.

The fact that a celebrity was in my dream is so bizarre to me. Yes, I dream about random people, but this is just weird. I don't remember the last time I even thought about Jake Gyllenhaal. So weird.

Just thought you'd all like to know about this, in case one day the 2 of us get married.

Delays and Delays and Delays and Delays...

Ok, so here's the home building update... and mind you, this is coming from a point of frustration. We still have not closed on our co...
