bretterson. my friend.

i have many best friends and for that, i'm very fortunate.

brett is one of those best friends and i just love him to death. he is a good person and i am lucky to be his friend.

reasons why i love brett:

1. he tells me the truth. even (especially) when i don't want to hear it.
2. he loves his family.
3. he loves and treats kat so well.
4. he will hang out with me when no one else will.
5. he gives the tightest hugs (sometimes he gives those half-ass, side hugs, but when you really need a good squeeze, he'll give you one)
6. even though i see him every day (he's my 4th roommate), he will still make plans with me to have one on one time
7. even though he is in a tough spot with the whole me and aaron thing, he will listen to me and support me even if he doesn't agree with me.

we are having a picnic in narnia (aka- poly canyon. the real thing, not the apartments) in a few weekends and it will be nice.

he is a good friend to me.

i've opened the box.

today, in my secret journalism room where it's dark and quiet and cold and i can print things out for free (don't ask where it is. i'm not telling), i discovered pandora. i know, i know. took me like, 20 years to find out just how cool it is. so now, instead of itunes, i'll be listening to the lovely array of music pandora gives me.

songs of the day:

picture by sheryl crow and kid rock
tonight i want to cry by keith urban

when it's one of those days, it's just one of those days.

i really kinda needed a pick me up this week and i think i got one (or a few!) today. thank god.

1. my aunt from louisiana called me this morning at 7. i'm going to louisiana for new years! i definitely took this as a nice start to my day.

2. Ed2010 emailed me back. they'd love it if i started a chapter on campus. i'm going to try to start a magazine club on campus. good luck to me.

3. i talked to page on the phone and got an email from lauren. i love my sisters and miss them.

i leave for vegas on friday and i'm so excited.

here is our itinerary for our vegas weekend:

saturday- have a lazy breakfast with all of the girls. shopping later, of course. pool time- for boys and tanning. saturday night- crazy adventures.

sunday- fancy brunch. say goodbye to vegas. hop on a plane and head back to slo town.

i'm excited. i bought some cute boots and a fancy yellow dress.
get ready for some picture posts after this weekend.

M to the azatlan.

my sister has the worst luck in the world. i wish i could help her, but she just can't seem to catch a break.

linda is this lady who works at the golf course. i have never met anyone like linda. she has cancer, two kids to support and works as a waitress and she has the most positive outlook on life. i love her. she gave page this voodoo magic pendant that she wears to make her feel better about all the crap she deals with. i thought that was a very selfless, kinda weird, but genuine gift and it made me happy that page might catch some black magic luck soon.

i'm going to mazatlan in march.

i've got nothing, absolutely nothing, good and positive to say about the world right now. that doesn't happen too often, but i figured i would only write that much because my mom always taught me, if you have nothing nice to say, it's better to say nothing at all.

so i've got nothing.
