5 months

Friday, was our 5 month anniversary. Nate and I have been official for exactly 5 months. Isn't that exciting?

I was going to try and list some of our favorite memories, but I'm kind of lazy right now. So it looks like that might have to wait till our 6 month.

Its been a really good 5 months. Since my longest relationship ever was 6 months, Nate likes to tease me and say he is just trying to beat that record, so I may only have a little over a month with him left, but it'll be a good month at least ;)

Here's to 5 months together, and many more to come. Cheers!

Here is a link to an article about it...


Last night when I got home from Nate’s I got a text from Kelsey confirming that I had been in the ward with this guy Robison Sundell. He was in my FHE group over the summer, he was my son, and I became good friends with all the boys in his apartment. I asked her why and she said because he died last night in a long boarding accident.

I was doing fine until I called Nate and told him I started bawling, and I called Mom and was bawling then too. Its just crazy for me to think about how fleeting life actually is. And its especially crazy because on my way to class yesterday, I was on the phone with Nate and I was late to class, but I passed Robi, and I only had a chance to say hi to him, quickly. I hadn’t seen him since the middle of August and he died on the day I saw him again. He was in the hospital on life support for at least a few hours last night while they were waiting for his family to come and officially say goodbye to him, but he didn’t have any brain activity the whole time.

I texted a couple of the boys that were his roommates in the summer, to ask them about it. They said "at least he went out doing what he loved." Again, I just can’t state how much we need to make the best of our lives, today, because you really never know what can happen.

10 minute mile

I'm officially really out of shape. I went running on Monday for the first time in who knows how long. I went for about 25 minutes, but walked about 10 minutes, I'd run a few blocks then walk a couple then run again.

Today I ran again. Twice in a week, that's good at least, right? I'm going to try going Friday too and getting a 3 a week routine down. I ran a lot faster today, and stopped less too. I ran the same distance in about 20 minutes today.

I looked up how far I ran, 2.2 miles. That's pathetic how slow I actually am, and how out of breath it actually makes me. I'll get better though, with time. Too bad its getting colder though so it'll actually make the breathing part harder. I might have to run on the indoor track sometimes too.

Anyway, regardless of how slow I am, I'm proud of myself for going twice already this week. And I'm determined to keep it up. So, here's to getting into shape. :)

So, we all know how great the office is. But did you watch last weeks? The second part. You can find it here.

So, Chris Brown's song "forever" came on, and it showed flashbacks of Jim and Pam getting married on the boat. They eloped. They ran away from all their friends, because they hated having their wedding revolve around other people's agendas. They looked so completely happy. And they're only acting.

It made me cry. Not a lot, but a few tears definitely dripped down my face. I think I wiped them away in time so Nate didn't see. I just couldn't help it. I want that happiness.


I also loved when Twitch and Comfort hip hopped to this dance on SYTYCD. You can check that out on youtube sometime.

looking forward to..

*Halloween. Nate and I are planning on going as Princess Buttercup and Wesley from a Princess Bride. I'm excited, though we still need to find our costumes. I'm also excited to carve a pumpkin and eat lots of candy. I really want to go to a corn maze this year too.

*Thanksgiving. Nate and I are driving to California to spend the holiday with my family. I'm excited to show him my home, the beach and why I love SD so much. If anyone is headed that way for Thanksgiving and wants to go with us to save on gas that'd be awesome.

*Christmas. Actually pretty much just for Zoe's birth. I can't wait to be an auntie and spoil that little girl like crazy. Two weeks off of school will be pretty nice though. I haven't had a two week break since last Christmas.

*Graduation. Who cares if its 14 months away. Once it happens that'll be so great. I won't HAVE to go to anymore school. Except then I'll have to start working full time somewhere, and hopefully I'll be able to find somewhere good to work (we this economy). And I still (kind of) want to get my masters in Communication Disorders, or get my TESOL certificate. Either way, a bachelors degree will be very exciting. And after graduation I'll finally get to start real life.

*Love. Life.

*What the future holds. I'm excited for tonight to see my lover boy again. I'm excited for Thursday when my L2 paper will be finished and turned in. I'm excited for this weekend. I'm excited for holidays. I'm excited for the snow to come and then to be gone again. I'm excited for this summer. Especially THIS summer.

*Every future second of my life.

remember this r problem i'm having? well, its still going on. and after taking the key board apart and cleaning it all out, nate discovered it must just be a short. he took my computer to work with him so he could check it out and make sure. so i'm here planning on buying a new keyboard for my computer, 30$, not too bad, but i hate spending money. and nate tells me not to order it yet because he's going to talk to dell and see if they'll fix it. so. get this. he said he was a little rude to them. oops. but he convinced them to fix it for me. plus they're going to fix my touch pad which is pretty crappy, tighten the hinges on my screen and replace the cover to my cd driver. isn't that amazing? what a sweetheart to get them to do all those things for me. i feel a little bad that he was mean to them. but it'll be worth it. so they're sending me a box in the next couple days. then i'll be computer less for 10-12 days, yuck, but, then it'll come back working like new. yay. nate says i owe him big. any ideas?

the letter isn't working on my keyboard right now and its really obnoxious actually. the numbers 4 and 5 aren't working either. but at least i can use the function 'u' and 'i' key and get those. each time i want to type an 'r' i have to use 'control v' to paste. so buggy.

i'm trying to think of ways i can get around typing with that letter. different words i can use, words to increase and exercise my vocabulary. its just not working at all, there are way too many words that use that letter. i am typing sentences and they are coming out like this... "the lette <> isn't woking on my keyboad ight now and its eally obnoxious actually."

see what i mean? how do i get around that?! good thing i have a techy boyfriend huh? hopefully he can fix it!
