Head Cut Off...

SO this year has come and Gone hasn't it? As I think back to the beginning of the year, living in Provo, under the BYU rules with a roommate who swore she was not "fornicating" then finding pr ego tests in the bathroom (I really don't care what the heck she's doing but don't leave something you pee'd on in my bathroom) eeewwww... To now living in Ogden, working with a completely different job, in a Totally different office. Oh how life has it's challenges.

I was asked by my co-worker what my new year resolutions were last week. I must admit that totally caught me off guard. Totally. I didn't even think of resolutions. He stated to me he wanted to get married and then winked... I turned around and Barfed in my mouth... The HECK, gross. However, Thanks to you for turning me to complete contemplation.

Lets focus on the Blessings of this yr first:
1) I'm alive. I made it another yr!
2) I watched 2 of my HERO's go on missions (Ecuador and Baltimore, how does life get better)
3) Although, a very serious condition (seizures), my sweet perfect nephew has not had one since he started his new med's and now is moving forward.
4) I have spent Seriously quality time with long lost Friends that I had lost contact with for Years. I have been reminded by those Friends of who my real self is, and what it is I stand for... shout out to Erika, Nik, and Amandita (all freinds since at least 6th grade, Amanda goes back to before kindergarten)
5) I have dated, and had so much fun, and have made my mind to look to getting married. Decision is the first step.
6) I have seen Miracles, mostly of my own heart, changing and softening. I started "Therapy" and have benefited from a whole different perspective in life.
7) I have started the process for grad school (talked to Law schools, and looked further into grad schools) and started applications.
8) I have traveled for the first time for work and work has paid for it... That's like what I had in my head of a true grown up job... like I'm a grown up!)
9) I have found Coconut oil!!! No wrinkles in my face!!! I love it! I frequently get told I look between 20-23.
10) I found HCG diet and stuck to it (Ok so not as much and I would have liked too, however I think even one day of success is something to brag about)
11) I have a nephew at BYU and a Niece in College in Arizona. (seriously where does the time go).
12) I went to my 10 Year high school reunion. Although I was very hesitant I went and I MASTERED it. I was scared to death of facing everyone. The best part was I walked away happy at what I've done, and where I am with my life. I am an extremely awesome person... How's that for cool?
13) I sat in the temple with my sweet nephew... Who thought that day would ever come? He is so much better than I ever have been.

That's all I can think of now... the list goes on Forever though. Lots to ponder and lots to look forward to. Here's to a Fabulous rest of 2009 and a Kick a@@ 2010. This is my year so get ready for it everyone!

(PS the fun Christmas festivities are in the next post, be ready ya'll are going to love what I've been doing to celebrate)

**I need to update everyone on life, However this is just a funny thing i saw and in reality is much like a day in the life at work!***

Here are 10 real-life mistakes that illustrate what not to do when you sit down for your next interview:

1. Candidate answered cell phone and asked the interviewer to leave her own office because it was a "private" conversation.

2. Applicant told the interviewer he wouldn't be able to stay with the job long because he thought he might get an inheritance if his uncle died -- and his uncle wasn't "looking too good."

3. The job seeker asked the interviewer for a ride home after the interview.

4. The applicant smelled his armpits on the way to the interview room.

5. Candidate said she could not provide a writing sample because all of her writing had been for the CIA and it was "classified."

6. Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss.

7. When the applicant was offered food before the interview, he declined saying he didn't want to line his stomach with grease before going out drinking.

8. An applicant said she was a "people person" not a "numbers person" – in her interview for an accounting position.

9. During a phone interview the candidate flushed the toilet while talking to hiring manager.

10. The applicant took out a hairbrush and brushed her hair.
