10 more things

I'm worried I sounded too negative in my post last night, and I didn't mean to do that. I was just expressing what was on my mind at that moment.

So here are 10 more things. Things I enjoy or love.

1. Watermelon. I can't get enough of it. I'm also really looking forward to peach season.

2. My internship. I didn't know anything about SEO or copywriting before I started there, and now a month and a half later, I feel like I know so much more. There is still way more to learn, but I am loving the learning process and becoming good at a new skill. 

3. This boy. He has Altoids Smalls in his mouth as teeth. He kept doing this at church, and I was dying. It is a good thing we were sitting in the back row!

4. Hawaiian chicken. I have made this a couple times in the last few weeks. It's so simple, and you don't really even need a recipe. I just throw some chicken, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, and vinegar into the crock pot in the morning, and then add whatever veggies I have on hand. I've used peas, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, and pineapple(not a veggie). Then cook up some rice real quick, and you have dinner!

5. Ozie. This is my niece, and I'm so lucky that Britty(my SIL) shares her and her brother with us because they are the cutest thing ever!

 6. These are the only classes I have to take before I graduate! I will take 15 credits in the Fall and then 4 in the Winter and then I'm done! I'm stoked.

7. We're going to Colorado tomorrow! The stress and craziness of this week will hopefully be made up for this weekend with my family. My little sister is graduating from high school, so all of my immediate family will be there. I haven't seen them since right after Christmas, and I haven't been home since Thanksgiving. I'm excited to be back!

8. The sun comes up before I get up. It's a million times easier to wake up in the morning when the sun is already out, and so even though I only got 5 hours of sleep, I can still pull myself out of bed. 

9. Rexburg in the spring. It's so beautiful and green. Love. 

10. Instagram. I'm so glad they made if for Android! It's my new favorite app.

10 things

10 Things that I Hate(Strong Word) Don't Like

If you do any of these things, I'm not trying to insult you, just saying that I don't like them for my self. 

1. Men who wear wedding bands before they are married. You're not wedded yet, therefore you should not wear a WEDDING band.

2. People who make everything about their lives public on Facebook. T.M.I.

3. People who constantly write Facebook posts about how much they love their significant other "I love (insert name here) so much! He/She is the best (husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/fiance/neighbor/cousin) ever! No one else has as good of a (blank) as I do! I'm so lucky!"
So happy for you. By the way, do you ever tell them this to their face? I'm not saying that I'm not guilty of this, but there are times when it's okay(birthday, anniversary, etc) but when it's everyday...stop. now.

4. That my husband hasn't taken our TV off retail store mode yet. We've had it for over a year. I know nothing about TV's, but I know that every time it turns on, it says "Your TV is in retail store mode." I don't actually hate this that much, because I don't even know the difference. The message is just annoying.

5. How crabby I get when I'm stressed. I have a final due tomorrow, we're going out of town on Friday so I have to do all of my weekend homework now, and I have a test tomorrow that I haven't studied for. Oh, and I'm just coming off "that time of the month," so I've been a real pleasure to be around lately. Sorry husband.

6. I'm starting to really like country music lately. My whole life, I have been anti-country with the exception of Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. Lately, I'm so tired of all the "popular," songs sounding the same and the radio stations here sucking, so I've resorted to country. And I like it. Who am I??

7. My scale. Enough said.

8. Everything I cook/bake lately isn't turning out. Part of it is for a grade, so when it doesn't turn out, I get more stressed(see #5). My final tomorrow is for my Confectionery class, and I have to turn in a bunch of candies. In the last 24 hours, I have made candied orange peels, chocolate almond cups, marzipan roses, nougat, chocolate filligree(see #7), Hawaiian chicken, and rice(not for the final).

9.My kitchen looks like this:

So excited to clean it. 

10. I am on a soccer team and we had our first game last night. I haven't touched a soccer ball for 2 years(no joke), and I am all kinds of sore today, especially in my abs and back. I choked earlier and started coughing. It felt great.
