Who's It?


I'm a little late at reaching out to the little girl playing tag, but better late then never right? (check out Wendy's blog if you wish to understand )

#1--- 5 years ago :

  • I was struggling in many ways and wanted to believe in myself but didn't know how to go about it. I am grateful that someone actually did and demonstrated this to me.

Also, just on a side note...5 years ago gas prices were climbing. Yes, on April 22nd, 2003 we were paying a whopping $1.67 per gallon! I was driving a little car and could fill up my tank for under $15. That sounds almost too good to be true...


#2--- 5 things on my To-Do list today:

  • Organize and finish compiling my MUSIC 3260 (a.k.a teaching Music) final notebook
  • Take out the garbage in my room & bathroom
  • Continue looking for jobs and apartments online (if anyone knows of a great paying summer job, please let me know!)
  • Practice playing the Recorder (yes, the dinky instrument you learn in the 4th grade. I've paid around $1500 for school this May to learn how to play the recorder and correctly blow a whistle for PE. Good times.)
  • Finish filling at least one of my cog meters on Toon Town

#3--- 5 snacks I enjoy:

  • Ice cream
  • Munchies Mix (what isn't better then mixing dorritos and cheetos--i could do w/out the cheddar sun chips and pretzels though)
  • Peanut Butter M&Ms
  • Dr. Pepper
  • Bite Size Charleston Chews

#4--- 5 places I have lived:

  • Jeff & Wendy's
  • Wasatch Hall in Logan Utah Apt. 302 (was actually here for two school years with a new set of roommates the 2nd year)
  • Old Farm Town Houses Apt. A2
  • Old Farm Town Houses Apt. A2 (same apartment, same room, same roomies from the year before. Well-only 1/2 of the year with all same roommates; 3 of them moved on to better things like getting married and going on a mission.)
  • Old Farm Town Houses Apt. U3 (notice the change? Yes, I moved across the parking lot for the 4 weeks in May).

#5 ---5 jobs that I have had:

  • Fry sauce Queen (weirdest job yet--filled small fry sauce containers at Taco Amigo when I was 15)
  • Utah State University Out-Catering (I now know how to twist napkins into a spiffy design and have been in almost every building at USU.)
  • Lochearn Camp for Girls in Vermont (this would be where I picked up my amazing basket-weaving skills)
  • Restaurant Manager at Fazolis (pretty good deal here making money and getting awesome food discounts for myself and others!)
  • Substitute Teacher (favorite job yet! This is how I learned that I actually wanted to teach older grades.)

Seriously, if you haven't already, check out Wendy's blog on this--it's great!

I'll bet you will want to reach out too ;)

Nice Post Mel! Just remember that in the Munchies Mix, I like the sun chips and pretzels -- pick them out and save them for me.

Mel...you have a much more interesting life than me to be able to make such a fun post. Also, if you're saving the sun chips and pretzels for Wendy, make sure you are able meet up and give them to her soon because that could get really gross!!! Have a great weekend!

Dang--I wish I would have read these comments before I left for the weekend... They would have reminded me to bring the baggie of the "picked-out" Munchie Mix ingredients to Wendy! Really, sun-chips and pretzels headed your way Wend~ just hope you don't mind a little "stale" taste... j/k

Let's just say it's much better to eat these when we're together ;)
