i'm a very strong believer in karma and not just the bad kind. i think if you, for instance, let someone out of the parking lot while everyone doesn't, you'll get let out first some other day. doing something good will always result in something good happening to you and vice versa. now for all my faithful readers, i have some food for thought:

"while we may judge things as good or bad, karma doesn't. it's a simple case of like gets like, the ultimate balancing act, nothing more, nothing less. and if you're determined to fix every situation you deem as bad, or difficult, or somehow unsavory, then you rob the person of their own chance to fix it, learn from it, or even grow from it. some things, no matter how painful, happen for a reason. a reason you or i may not be able to grasp at first sight, not without knowing a person's entire life story--their cumulative past. and to just barge in and interfere, no matter how well-intentioned, would be akin to robbing them of their journey. something that's better not done."

next week, schools ending for me. so before my life gets absolutely crazy, i want to wish my very best friend a happy birthday! it's not until next week, but that's okay, because every day should be brittlyn's birthday.

{to brittlyn} happy birthday, sassy! i hope you finally get your license, so you can runaway from utah and come see me. i miss you more than you know. hurry up and move back to mesa, so i can run over and sit in the heat with you.
every time i drive down val vista, i look and make sure losha's shoes are still there. don't worry, they are. and if they weren't, we'd find a reasonable substitute.
b, you've always been there for me. even though we've gotten in a few fights, you're one of the only people i can't stay mad at. you make me so incredibly happy! you make me laugh at just about anything. we've gone through some pretty crazy stuff together. and despite it all, we're still best friends. you mean the world to me and i'm so glad that i got to be so close and important to you, because you've made me a better person. because of our friendship, i learned that being happy is the easiest solution for every problem. you are one amazing girl. i can't wait to be your maid of honor, because we both know you'll get married before me. i love you, burtlyn. you will always be my very best friend.

she is perfection.
no, i did not cut my hair because i loved hers so much.
no, i do not do winged eyeliner because she does.
i am my own person.
emma watson and i just happen to have similar tastes.
we'd be good friends. i know it.

The Passed Few Days.

i went to utah this weekend. i bought my own plane ticket, and went up there. just to see sam and brittlyn and my aunt and her kids and margie and megan and all of the good people utah has to offer.
you know what it made me realize? arizona's seasons suck. we have two. winter and summer. we don't have spring or fall and i hate it. i've made it pretty clear how badly i want to live there. but especially after this weekend? dang. all i wanted to do was lay in liberty park and stay there forever. it's so pretty in utah right now! sure, it was snowing when we landed, but salt lake is gorgeous right now. seriously, i was swooning over the trees.
see you soon, utah.
