On Saturday I took Teddy shopping in Salt Lake for her birthday. It was all fun and games till I got pulled over for going 85 in a 65. Thank goodness I was wearing my sunhat though because I'm pretty sure that was the reason he only marked me down for going 10 over.
Best part: my ticket says "Ethnicity: U"
U stands for unknown. God bless America

Again? This time I really don't know who it is. Before I had my suspicions but now I have no idea. If it is someone who knows me well, they obviously know that I have a hard time accepting big gestures from people. And if I knew who it was, I would send it back instead of keep it. But since there is no way for me to know where this mystery money came from, Thank You. You are too kind, and I'm grateful :)

And I am angry because I'm exhausted and neeeeed sleep.
I wanna scream! But don't worry, when you are studying and taking pictures of yourself at 5 in the morning everything seems:

#1 was to meet new people. I have made a couple new friends, and reconnected with some old ones, but I could do better.
#2 I am yet to have someone call me a "sweet person". It's gonna take some time.
#3 Lose 10 pounds by March 1st, I am well on my way :) 5 down, 5 to go.
#4 I have prayed more often :) and am blessed because of it
#5 I wanted to attend all 3 hours of church every week. I have failed. I made it to three hours one week, and only two hours the other weeks. But hey, 2 is better than 1!
#6 Go to Arizona at least 4 times. I booked my flight to come home March 11th for Ashley's wedding :)
#7 Do my laundry every week. YES I have done this! My laundry gets done every week, now it's just a matter of putting it all away.
So far 2010 is successful. My body is trying to tell me to slow down though, because I have major sleeping problems. I'm tired all day, and when it's time for bed at night I lay awake till 2 in the morning. And then when morning comes, my alarms don't wake me up. This is NOT like me!! So a new goal of mine is to try and get 6 hours of sleep every night. We'll see how it goes

"Oh that's smart, I wanna leave mine in here too", I thought.
Just as I locked the door and slammed it shut my jaw dropped and my face was overcome with worry. I ran to catch up with Teddy.
"I locked both sets of keys in the car". Yep, both Teddy's key and my key locked securely in the car.
Long story short and many phone calls later, a nice man in the parking lot overheard my dilemma.
"Why don't you just call AAA?"
"Oh I'm not a member so I don't want to pay them to do it" I replied.
"Well I'm a member so I'll just pretend it's my car." And he did just that. 45 minutes waiting for the van to come and 1 minute to unlock my car, this guy was my hero.
As I was driving away I thought, good karma comes back around. Just the day before I had seen a paralyzed man at the gym starting to slide out of his wheel chair. As everyone walked passed him we made eye contact and I walked over to help. I lifted each of his legs and placed them back on the footrest and helped him scoot back in his chair. This story sounds a lot more reverent now then when I told Becca about it... she seemed to think me helping a paralyzed man was hilarious haha. Come on Becs, I'm a good person!
So next time you have an opportunity to help a stranger, doooo it! It will come back to you when you most need it

I came home from school today, and Emily checked the mail. She handed me an envelope, looked something like this:
"Yuck it's a bill. I don't want it." I said as I opened it. I thought it was kind of strange that there was no return address.
I pulled out a tri-folded sheet of white paper. "Yep, it's a bill." I said to Emily.
I opened the top third. Blank. That's weird.
I opened the bottom third, and what do you know? It was a bill.
A $100 bill. The paper was blank. Unsigned. My address had been typed so I couldn't guess from the handwriting. Emily and I screamed and freaked out for a minute. I thought I might explode.
(Me about to explode).
I love the many blessings that are in my life. I love the power of paying tithing. I love having anonymous people who support me as a starving student. I don't know who it was, but thank you so much for being so kind!! I will use it wisely, and save it for my next "bill" that comes in the mail!
