map of the problematique

what have you done to me?
i was so sure of my existence
so sure of what i wanted
then you had to go and say those words
changing everything
opening a door that i never even knew was there
oh don't get me wrong
i've been wanting to hear you say it
but now i am stuck
with a constant smile on my face
feeling guilty that it is there
i miss you, too

i do believe it's true that there are roads left in both of our shoes

ahem. it has been a few weeks. so here goes, a bunch of my random thoughts:
1- perhaps i should go to hair school? i mean when i am done with my wildlife degree. most of the time i feel like i don't have the intelligence required to be in this field and that when i get out into the real world i won't be successful. therefore, i think maybe i should go to hair school. cause i like to make things look pretty. and i like hair. then maybe i could make my hair look pretty too. this idea extremely pleases my mom. she gets so annoyed at the thought of me doing a "man's job" (she is so sexist and doesn't realize it). she says, "why don't you do hair, or be a teacher, or a nurse? that's what girls do." haha. whatever.
2- i'm sad/happy the season is over (that was incredibly ridiculous to type because they are exact opposites). But i am sad because this has been such a great season. I have had such a blast working hard with some of the greatest girls around. we accomplished goals as a team (something i am not used to). i had blue hair for a while, that was spectacular. This season just went really well for all of us. it feels really good to have a break right now.
3-kyle scott trammell is going to be joining my family for thanksgiving in hurricane, utah. i'm excited for this. i feel like i go to ALL of his family functions (which i really do love), and it's time he spends a week as a quinn. i'm a bit nervous though because we are quite a different family. i don't know how he will handle things. we spend thanksgivings at chuck-a-rama. this is the only day of the year my mother doesn't cook. we wake up really early and go to be really early. we always eat every meal as a family. nothing in our house in hurricane matches, it is just decorated by random things my mom has picked up from garage sales in the last 20 years. i am excited, but nervous for him to experience the intensity of my family.
4-i think i am learning to be a less judgemental person. i think this has to do with the fact that i am constantly around people that are so judgemental all the time it drives me crazy. i am beginning to realize that it's so awesome when people can just be who they are. i am trying to love everyone, unless they give me a reason to not. but i will continue to give them the benefit of the doubt first.
5- i am loving life right now.
6- i love my friends. all of you.
7- i effing can't wait for the semester to be over!! yayuh!
