i know it might be hard to believe from yesterday's post, but i hate valentine's day. however, i did enjoy eating my weight in candy, going to chipotle with james for dinner, chatting with my bible study girls, and climbing into my warm bed.

here are some things that i love, vday or not:

this goober for understanding me so well and not running for the hills at my strangeness. yet.

these crazies. for being, well, crazy.

and jesus. for giving me this and so many other wonderful things.

debbie downer.

caution: do not read this post if you feel like being lovey or happy today.

i have 2 midterms today that i spent all weekend studying for.

i hate vday.

i am having a bad hair day.

it is raining.

my feet are cold.

vday is stupid.

i probably won't even see james today.

but at least i have eaten a lot of chocolate today.

maybe i will be in a better mood later and post something nicer.

this week.

i have a to-do list that is growing alarmingly longer every second and i am realizing now that finals are not too far away.

my stress level is increasing at about the same rate as my to-do list but i just have to let myself breath and tackle things one at a time. three midterms this week.

wish me luck [or say a little prayer, which would be more effective]!

i'm watching you...

and i got a new haircut. but i'm just kidding. i'll be too busy doing homework today to creep on anyone. so i'll let the picture do it for me in honor of valentine's day [because i hate that "holiday"].

also i apparently have a lazy eye? i never noticed it til this picture. great.

this was a wonderful weekend. unfortunately, the few pictures that were actually taken are with james. boo.

thursday night james and i drove down to good ole t.o. and stopped at in n out on the way [a must]. my friend neille stopped by for a sec and it was nice to see my family.

friday we stopped by neille's new place to see the remodel and then went to my mom's classroom to see her be a teacher. after that my mom took us to panera for lunch. yum. then we drove down to my grandparent's house where my dad was doing some work on their house. so we visited and worked and ate, which was great. i had to go to david's bridal to get fitted for a bridesmaid dress, so it felt good to get that out of the way. then we went to cheesecake factory with my mom, dad, and matthew. it was nice to have a family dinner. then james and i kidnapped matt and took him to lazer tag haha. i felt like a tween boy, but it was fun to be goofy and watch matthew enjoying having a date just for him.

saturday we drove down to james' parents' house to say hi and i went to a bridal shower for his cousin with his mom. this was total payback for james trying to learn all my crazy family. i met everyone his family knows and their mother [literally]. but it was fun with good food, and i won a game! saturday night we headed back to slo and i slept like a baby.

today we had church, found out my dad was coming up to drop off a coffee table for me, and then went to lunch with him. it was nice to see him again even if only for an hour. and my dad always enjoys a good road trip. then we watched the superbowl [insert a comment that makes it seem like i was interested in this] while i did my homework. i am now tired but happy and will be going to bed early to gain motivation to kick school in the butt this week.

shower time. peace.

today nothing momentous or bad happened but it just kind of ended up being not that great of a day and left me feeling sad and cranky. and i don't really know why. i don't really have anything important to say i guess i just felt the need to be transparent and prove that my life is not perfect [even though i'm sure no one thought is was haa].

i guess i shouldn't be that sad because my dad just booked our flights for maui for july. yayy.

okay hw and then shower and bedddd.
