Quirky Turky.

I got tagged by Mrs. Natalie so here it goes, my quirkys:

1. I always leave cabinet doors open and it is laziness but it's laziness in a weird way. I hate slamming cabinet doors (too loud) so in order to close them I'd have to sit there and close it slowly by hand, which takes to long, so I just leave them open. This has annoyed everyone I've ever lived with.

2. Alot of the time I go running in the morning because my body is simply addicted to it. If I don't work out in the morning and get that burst of cold air on my face, I feel groggy and nauseated all day until I do.

3. I am so jumpy. Some days are worse than others but even if I know you're there or hear you coming if you say or do something just right, I'll jump and then get sad that you scared me. Oh, and most of the time I hate watching fireworks because I'm just scared the whole time from the bangs.

4. I always make lists for things. Whether it's packing or shopping (not only just groceries, I often make lists for things I want like a white collared shirt, etc.) and to-do lists, they're so helpful since my memory has been gone lately.

5. I am obsessed with thrift stores. Whenever I go I just buy things that I think are cute without even thinking if I really need them. It's like I think I'm getting everything for free, but I'm definitley not.

6. I have to fall asleep with a little bit of my blanket tuffed up to cover my ears. This started as a noise blocker from loud roommates, then turned into a cold blocker and now I just can't fall asleep without it.

7. After I do my hair in the morning and have gel/hairspray on my hands I have to scrub my hands for like 5 minutes with a rough scrub brush to make sure I get it all off so that I don't feel it anymore and my hands are completely clean. I love clean hands.

8. I set 5 alarms in the morning. This is for two good reasons, one: often times I like to wake up slowly and don't jump out of bed very well (i literally can't walk) and two: I often have strange dreams so when my alarm goes off it's just incorporated into my dream and I don't comprehend it as my alarm. (just the other night I had a dream about a buzzing leaf-shaped tool that I was using to cook something...it was not a buzzing leaf-shaped tool at all.)

9. I bite my nails when I'm stressed and/or angry. Its become well known to me that when school is out my nails will get long. Therefore you can see my struggle as I try to be stressed in planning the wedding, and having long nails on my wedding. Nearly impossible.

10. I count syllables. And in order for me to be satisfied with a sentence, the syllables have to divisible by four. In order to get more syllables I count commas and periods and dots over 'i's. For example the sentence "Robert is engaged to me." has 12 syllables-not 7 like most people think. (i.e.: Robert (2 syllables) is (2 syllables incl. "dot" for the 'i') engaged (2 syllables) to (1 syllable) me (1 syllable) period (4 syllables, inlc."dot" for the 'i') And I do this alot, I'm not incredibly fast or anything. But I'd say I do it at least 15-20 times a day. That is by far my quirkiest quirk.

hmm...I'm a strange girl.

a fear.

I find myself counting down the days until the wedding for very specific reasons: (in no particular order)
  • i get to wear nice make up and look beautiful all day.
  • i get to recieve my endowments before the wedding and starts wearing g's, something i've really been looking forward too.
  • i get to go into the temple and be sealed to Robert for all time and eternity
  • i get to eat carne asada tacos at my reception (hopefully)
  • i get to go to HAWAII for a week with my new husband and forget about everything in my life

...but this all leads to one fear. that is when i return i will just want to re-live that week over and over and over again...kinda the same way i want to live our engagement day over and over and over again. This is the fear. but at least i'll be living with my best friend, that'll make up for it.

Bridal showers this week. this is seriously unreal.

disney weekdays.

Robert and I's first year of dating can generally be gathered as him working on his company, me getting home from school super stressed about midterms and/or papers and/or finals and his solution was always to go to Disneyland instead. It was always the perfect remedy. Going to Disneyland on week nights became a tradition fast...until recently. This summer was SO busy we went from dreaming about our wedding and ring shopping to actually planning it, and thus spending lots of time with family, and leaving no time for weekday date nights.

So now that I am beyond stressed-so much even that i snapped at my aerobics instructor today over marking me absent, mind you i HATE confrontation-that I have so much on my plate thursday night is disney night.
i haven't done homework in a week, i haven't started writing a single paper and when i say i'm going to the new apt. to do homework in the quiet, i'm lieing, i'm going to watch food network.

i'd like to finish this blog but i just don't have time because Tyler's ultimate is on and Robert's almost home and we have mickey ears to wear and gibson girl to eat.
