...I was a procrastinator?

"Hi. My name's Mickelle and I'm a procrastinator."

It's true. It can be a problem sometimes... really alot of times. I really should join a group or something (P.A.? Procrastinators Annonymous? Although meetings would probably never happen- they'd just keep putting it off. In fact... I'll do that... one day...later...)

But... let me share with you the secret to being a sucessful procrastinator:

Being able to get things done last minute.

If something needs to be done I get it done much more efficiently at 11:59 than 2 weeks before. I really wish it wasn't like this- but it's true. As I type this I think of all the things I need to do but I probably won't do it until it HAS to be done.

-Powerpoint Slides for Management Class- Due Monday night
-Marketing Plan for Marketing Class- Due Saturday night
-Watch and Eval Video for ICAN- Due Saturday at 1
-Accounting Homework- Due Monday
-Accounting Test- Due by Next Friday at 3
-Progress Report- Due Next Thursday night
-Check out book "Tuesday" and record a video of me signing it- Due Next Friday

It's ridiculous... good thing I have a planner to keep all this stuff straight- or I would have to be early for everything...

...there wasn't a great blog post? sorry.

... I had a whole blog post all typed up. I sometimes click things accidentally. Today... one of those sometimes happened.

Sorry. The blog post is gone and I don't want to type it up again.

Basically I'll summarize it for you:

Tires are expensive and it's really annoying when you get flat tires. That's all I'm saying.

... I found a really winning... Parking lot?

Here's another winning picture to add to the collection. I hope when I get old and have my own parking lot I can have one with something clever painted on the asphalt instead of the usual Enter" and "Exit".

...there was evidence of spring?

In one week:

I'm just saying... It's not just flowers that show it's spring.

... I offered to you my pearls of wisdom? I know you wanted them...

Today was a people watching day. It was also a learning day.
Just in case you don't want to learn these lessons on your own... I'll share some of the knowledge I've gained today. (yes.. just one day-- and it's only 4:00!)

1. Taking a nap in a warm car before work is a good thing
**Bonus: You can tan one leg and one arm at the same time if it's sunny!
2. When trying to eat healthy... It's best to eat some junk food sometimes. Even though it doesn't fill me up- it's soooo delicious.
3. One-way signs sometimes are just a suggestion for some people... but usually they aren't. In fact, most traffic signals aren't just suggestions.
4. Couches should not be left outside during the rain. That's gross.
5. Although there are good days and bad days (like in any job) Being a Sign Language Interpeter is one of the best student jobs in the world. I love it.
6. A gym membership is a waste of money. I can stay home from the gym for free.
7. No matter when a test is due- the testing center is never open late enough and tests are never available long enough.
8. Facebook is the anti-homework drug... in a bad way.
9. If you are really thirsty- don't get ice in your water- you could choke while little over-excitedly trying to satisfy that thirst. No Bueno!
10. Don't carry around too many books in your backpack... it hurts your shoulder... and if you have a purse too- that is no fun!

Treasure these little nuggets. They'll come in handy one day...

More to come... but I don't want to overload you with all this knowledge... seriously could be hazardous.

....I had the best friends in the world?

Not even kidding.

You can be jealous if you want to-- but it's true. I must admit I'm totally jealous of myself.

Here are several examples of my friends awesome-ness:

Well seeing as how a few weeks ago there was a CEREAL PARTY... how could they not be awesome? Really! I love the fact that we can all do random silly things- completely sober I might add- and we can have the most fun time doing it. Last week? Waffle Party... seriously.

Then... tonight, my friend (who is, in fact going to be an EFY counselor with me this summer) and I are going to have our very own EFY-inspired dace party (once again... judge and and be jealous!) What better songs to rock out to than "We Like to Party" from the Venga Boys, "Move it Like This" from Baha Men, and "The Party's Just Begun" from the Cheetah Girls? And what makes it 10 times better is that there are choreographed dances to go along with each song. Dances with great names like "Peanut Butter & Jelly" and "Baha Men #1". (Must I repeat the fact that you should be extremely jealous at the thought of having amazing friends that not only deal with this love of EFY but PARTICIPATE in it?)

Although there are many examples of these awesome people the last is simply that I can call and talk to them. I'm a total texter-- but I love that I can just call. I just got off the phone with one of my favorite people in the world. (I have several favorite people in the world-- but Ben is one of my top favorite people and he doesn't text) It was a good conversation... Really, I can talk to any of them about anything and I love it.

Oh yeah... and we're having a Disney/Showtunes sing-along sometime in the near future... LOVE IT!

To my friends:

You're the best.
Can we please be Friends forever?
I'd like that.

...I was happy?

Now that you all are informed and aware of the Eggo fiasco I can relax and we can return to our regularly scheduled program:

Ever have those weeks that are just good?

Regardless of what happens during the week, there are enough amazing things that make you smile to counteract all the bad (including any and all Eggo shortages)?

I like those weeks.

They make me happy.

This week has been a good week. This morning while I was reading my scriptures before work I noticed (again) how the happiest people were the ones that recognized God's hand in their life. They knew He was their loving Father in Heaven and even though their life wasn't perfect- together they could get through it and everything would "give [them] experience, and be for [their] good". I love that. I think that's why this week has been a good week. Lots of blessings that I really needed- especially the many chances to recognize God's hand in MY life. I love that He loves me.

It makes me happy.

**Breaking News**

Fights breaking out in the frozen section for the final box...

"Clean up on isle 12" caused by stampedes of caretakers trying to provide an instant meal from their young...

And from all across America the cries of "Leggo my Eggo" are heard- yet they cannot be satisfied...

This can only mean one thing.

Straight from your local, friendly Grocer- I bring you the next national crisis:

FYI: In case you were wondering-- Eggo's are hard to come by these days.

Consider yourself lucky to have that box that expired 7 years ago at the bottom of your deep freeze. You kept it there because you would need it someday. Well... someday has come, my friends... someday has come...
