A Very Important Message

I am no longer using this blog. It's still going to be here because I don't want to get rid of all the posts but there just will never be any new updates. I can't keep up with all this AND pinterest...ya know?

You can find us at (for some reason the link thing wasn't working so yes, you will have to physically type out that whole address...sorry :/)

I'm begging you to read it. Even though the posts won't be as cynical nor as humorous...still please read it.

I'm still here.

It's obvious that I have no idea what I am doing...trying to manage two blogs means I suddenly just don't blog altogether. But neither does Megan so I guess it's just, whatever.

So, I got myself a pinterest account about three months ago and I just discovered what it even is about three weeks ago. This could explain why I no longer blog..or do the dishes. The humor section is down right now so...that's how I ended up here.

I guess I should specify that there is another reason I have stopped doing dishes: tupperware. My brother has been staying with us this month and between him and Jesse, the sink is always full of oatmeal caked tupperware. So over the last few weeks I have become completely numb to dishes and they now just hand wash their own. We do have a dishwasher, mind you, and today I realized that the dishes on the top shelf were clean and the ones on the bottom were dirty. I did nothing about it and told no one.

I also started a new job last Monday. It's been awesome. The other day my boss(es) were talking about dress codes and cracking jokes about how weird it would be to have one and wondering if you're even allowed to make people dress a certain way (this was brought up because they want me to get Boise State apparel and weren't sure if they could make it mandatory). I also feel the need to talk about how many times they have taken me to lunch and about the one time they took me to get lunch then we ate it in the "lounge" area..I dunno it's kinda like a family room? and we watched The Walking Dead. I think all employers could get some pointers from these guys. Work gets done too, it's totally crazy.

And lastly, Jesse made a deal with the devil and I'm not sure he realizes exactly what he committed to.

But it was real so...come next Spring (maybe early summer) we will have a new addition to our family...

He will be black and white and his name will be Tobi.

Lately I have been finding myself in many office buildings talking to people that are there watching and analyzing my every move.

The first interview (I havent had a real interview since 2005, mind you) I left feeling pretty inadequate and thinking "so that's how those things go", I knew I didn't get it but I didn't think it was THAT bad. It wasnt like, a horrible interview but I could have been much more prepared to answer the "about me" portion of it.

The next few were good but with the lack of phone calls back my self esteem has dwindled some.

But this last interview was the icing on the cake.

The first question (or phrase I guess..) was: So, tell me a little about yourself.
Ok. What do you want to know? How deep do I need to get into this? Because right now the things that I could tell are fairly obvious...I have brown hair...I'm 5' car needs to be washed really bad? So I just settle for "well I just got married a few weeks ago". Usually that one opens up a conversation but apparently not with this guy.

On to the next question

How do you do with criticism?
I love it. I soak it in and change myself every time someone tells me that what I have done is incorrect. How do I honestly admit that it depends if I think they are right or not? Because some criticism is constructive and some is just not. So I just went with "if it's constructive then I do fine" but really I go home and dwell on it for the next 3 weeks.

What would you say is your biggest accomplishment?
Um...Well I hate to reiterate that I just got married. It's not that Im trying to bring this up over and over again but for now it kind of is my only accomplishment...between that and graduating high school 4 years ago. Should I throw in that it was in the temple? Because depending on your religion you could understand that it's an accomplishment.

What would you say is your biggest failure? interview? The skills test I took right before you brought me in here..the one asked me which shapes were different than the others because I still think it was a trick question?

Then he proceeds to tell me these two specific things:
There is a strict dress code. Violate the dress code three times and you will be terminated.
There is a strict rule of being on time. Be late three times and you will be terminated.

Awesome. I already know you aren't going to hire me...which is kind of a relief for both of us because it means you can't fire me later.

Serious Question

Recently my equally as good half happened to mention that I have a lot of posts on here that are along the lines of spring flings, theories that are lies, and a lot of other posts that made me wince a little when I read them (oh 2009, how I do not miss you).

So here is the debate- do I start a new blog, after I wed, that's more of an "us" blog and let this one go or do I keep this one and just revamp it?

I cannot decide and it is driving me crazy.

Multiple Personalities

Out in the midwest (maybe not all the midwest..but maybe) it's challenging to find people that share the same....sense of humor as the rest of the world. I don't know how else to put that. It's not that they don't have one but it's that there's is only funny to them. So when you meet someone that totally gets you, it's awesome!

I am walking in the direction of a guy (probably 65+) at the gym-

guy: *whispers something*
Me: *look at guy*
guy: *looks back, sheepishly*...."sorry, sometimes I talk to myself...actually all the time..."
Me: "oh yeah, I do it all the time, too"
guy: *starts walking away then pauses and looks at me* "Ya know I really have the best conversations when I do! It's the best. And you never get in an argument!"

I love it when I can relate.
