Being 21...

My sweet new camera!! More about that later though...
So, I figured it was time to update. I have another website (myspace) that I update my blogs on more often, but I forget about this one. Well, on Wednesday, February 14, I turned 21 years old. It's pretty cool. I guess. I think that 21 is the last of the "big" birthdays. I mean, when 30 comes, nobody really wants it to, so they dread that day. I think, for some people, they begin to count backward after that year. Crazy.

Well, let's begin where I always like to: the beginning. My grandfather called me around 7:30 A.M. to wish me a happy 21. It was awesome. I'm not sure if he understood me, or what I said, but I am pretty sure I said thank you. At least once. Hannah, my sister, called me seven minutes after that, and was upset that she was not the first to call me. She too wished me a happy b-day, and then as soon as my head hit the pillow, my dad called me. By that time, I was wide awake and was nearing 7:45. I got up.

I went to chapel and my three classes, and was out by 4:00 P.M. Next, I ran over to Outback Steakhouse and waited for about 30 minutes for a table, and then Hannah showed up and waited with me. We waited another 30 minutes and got our table. We had a great dinner. Lubbock is strange in that you cannot make reservations on Sundays or on holidays. I never get it. There needs to be more eating establishments in Lubbock, but that is my opinion. After dinner, it was close to 7:00 and I had a meeting at 9. Hannah and I went to Wal-Mart because she was leaving on a school trip to Amarillo the next day. We got a few things, and she went home. By the way, it was snowing for my birthday! I have never gotten snow on my birthday, so that was pretty cool.

After Wal-Mart I went back to campus and it was a little after 8. I sat down on the computer and answered a ton of facebook and myspace messages. I find it fascinating that people go out of their way that one day of the year to talk or leave a message, but avoid you the rest of the year. Fascinating. After that, Holly and Tyler came over and we headed to the LST meeting. It was freezing cold by the way, and the roads were a little icy, but it was ok. LST ended around 11, and I went back home.

So, that was my b-day. It was pretty uneventful, unless you count the events.

Hannah got me the perfume With Love by Hillary Duff and I could not have been happier. It smells wonderful. I am in love with With Love.

Thursday and Friday and Saturday was work as usual. For Saturday, I got a special gift and got to work 11 hours. Yay me. I have noticed that it is a little hard to interpret sarcasm while writing. Lots of people have that wonderful ability, but I am lacking. I will work on that.

Sunday was the day to spend with dad and Kim's family. It was awesome. Homemade pizza (homemade anything) is the best.

Also, I got a sweet new digital camera. For some reason the pic is at the top of the page and not here . Oh well. There it is. It is awesome.
Mom almost killed me. I cut my hair. My hair was long. Long like half-way down my back long. I must have cut off a good six inches. I almost cried. It is not how I told her to cut it, but it will grow back. Locks of Love got a good donation!
So, that is about it. Yep, think so. Life is good. Not too boring. I would like to share with you all my new favorite quote and it is from the television show The Office:
Dwight: Why tip someone for a job I'm capable of doing myself? I can deliver food. I can drive a taxi. I can and do cut my own hair. I did however tip my urologist, because, I am unable to pulverise my own kidney stones.
I like that. Heee! Crazy funny. Well, to me at least. So, The Office is pretty awesome. I like the randomness and quirkyness of the show. Also, I am so excited that Grissom is back in the original CSI. He rocks. I am disappointed that I have to wait three weeks for an all new House episode. Disappointing. Oh well, I'll live. Of course!! Well, that is about it for now. I will try to start updating daily...or weekly...or monthly...or whenever. It will happen.
