Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 130

On Tuesday my throat was starting to feel normal again and then today I woke up with it soar again. What the.... what is going on? Did I mention that I passed it on to Dave? I feel bad because I know how awful it is and how long I have had it. Dang it.

Has anyone else noticed that like almost every movie coming out lately are redo's? Spiderman, Batman, Bond, Oz (which is a new story but still from something we already know), The Hobbit. Even Tim Burton's Frankenweenie is a redo of a short film. Why are they not making any new movies. Running out of ideas? I want a new good chick flick. I feel like that is not asking too much. Not that I have not been enjoying the action films and movies made from comics... but I am a sucker for a good chick flick now and again.

I have still been glued to the Olympics... although I have not watched as much this week as I did last. My excitement starts to die down a little the second week even though I still love them. I love watching them unless I am with Dave and he looks up who wins before the fun of watching and finding out.... just saying. I will be super sad when the Olympics are over. However, I will be pretty excited to not be spending so much time in front of the tv as well.

I started dieting again. I have a love/hate relationship with food. I wish I didn't. I wish I were one of those people that didn't have to worry about what they ate. I wish I was just naturally skinny.... but I'm not. So I have to count calories and go on diets and worry about weight for the rest of my life. In my head I have this constant argument like Jackel and Hyde. One part of me would rather be fat and happy and able to eat whatever I want. The other side of me would do anything to be thin even if that means I have to starve myself (not really starve myself to the point of eating disorder) or be on a miserable diet. Worst thing ever. Anyway, I'm doing what I did in January. Cutting out all carbs and sugar for the whole month. It is going to be a long month.

They announced at church on Sunday that our ward is going to be part of a new Stake. Only one other ward from our stake is moving over to this new stake. In a way it kind of made me sad because I love the stake and know so many people in it and we have so many traditions and now we are no longer going to be a part of it. Thinking about it more though.... every change our stake has made has been really good. Also... we are like the most fun and outgoing ward in the stake.... obviously they are going to miss us and invite us to do stuff all of the time. This way we get to meet a bunch of people without having to move. It is all about switching it up and networking. Everyone that I have talked to is really excited about the change and thinks that all the other wards are going to be jealous that we get to move over to the new stake. Probably right. ;) The best part of it all though is that we WON'T HAVE TO MEET ON CAMPUS ANYMORE!!!! This will be the first time since I have lived in Provo. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. We will be meeting in a real church building. It will be closer. We won't have to walk a mile to church in heels because of campus parking. Oh man. This is so good. So SO good.

I went to the driving range again today. Golfing looks so much easier than it is. It is all about the form with how you hit it. Although I have probably picked it up a little faster than others, I still feel like an idiot out there. I also don't feel like I do well under pressure. I don't like people watching me. ha ha. I am getting better though. Jay and Thomas both coached me today (not that I asked, but it is nice that they are looking out for me and want me to improve) and they are both good at coaching me and helping me know what to change to improve how I hit. They gave me some great tips that I think really helped. Either way.... it is still fun. One day... when I'm legit at golf, I will buy my own set. Until then, I just borrow my friends clubs.

Where will your church building be? How did Dave get your sore throat? Inquiring minds want to know...

Love the Olympics too. Sorry you have a sore throat again. That's a bummer.

You are so cute.

I think I got your sore throat somehow too... a few weeks later... and hundreds of miles away.

If you want movies to be better, you should write one. Or pitch me some ideas. Maybe I will write it for you.

I'm telling you, you need to find a doctor that will give you phentermine. I lost 12 pounds in a few months without trying (which is really saying something since I was TRYING AND TRYING and not loosing anything). You also feel like you are on drugs and have a ton of energy. I wish I could do it again.
