Someday, I'll be a knight.

Hello friends. Another random thought from yours truly.

The other day I was watching a Knight's Tale and Heath Ledger's character said something that stuck out to me. Right when he is sitting on the horse, in his armor, about to joust for the first time, he says:

I've waited my whole life for this moment.

I got to thinking, what have I waited my whole life for? Everyone has that moment when they realize what they are about to do is what their whole life has been about. Everything, up until that point, doesn't matter at all. It is all about this moment, this minute, this second, you have waited your whole life for.

Everyone has a different moment they have been waiting for.

It could be a proposal.
Becoming a parent.
Owning your career.
[btw this picture rocks]

Everyone has a different idea of that moment, but it's just as important to every one of us. It is amazing, breathtaking, life changing. The more I thought about it, the more I realized there is no question as to what that moment is.

It is a moment I have worked toward my whole life. Every decision I have made, every chance I have taken, every opportunity I have taken advantage of has revolved around this life changing moment. No choice I have made has been without this in mind. I have missed out on things, I have said no when the world would have me say yes, I have been mocked and teased and judged for this moment. And yet I know, without a single doubt in my heart, that when that moment comes (hopefully far in the distant future) none of that will matter. I know that as I wake up that day, walk up those steps, and stare up at this place, I will say to myself...

Going to the temple to receive my endowment will be the moment I have known I was waiting my whole life for. It won't be for a mission, a marriage, or for any other reason than me, wanting to make covenants with my Heavenly Father, for myself and myself alone. What a blessing.   


Hate is a strong word, but I really really really don't like the Steelers.

I've got your back in all things.

Something I have said many times, but only to a few people. I try to live up to that. Many times I fail. But I try to keep that promise.

There are some people we all have that relationship with. My family. My closests friends. The ones I hold the closest to my heart. To me, that is one of the most powerful promises you can make to a person. Saying 'I love you' tells them alot, but I think you can love someone and not always have their best interest in mind. But having their back in all things... that is powerful. That's a true blue pinky promise to support them no matter what. It is a verbal bond that means you will always have their best interest in mind. You will not question them, their actions, their words, their deeds. Never. You have their back, in ALL things.

When I choose to take on this commitment, to promise to always support someone no matter what, I automatically place them among the most important people in my life. I would never do anything to hurt them. I would never say anything that would cause anyone to question their character, their integrity. I would never allow myself to break their heart.

It's really hard when the people I hold in this regard don't feel the same. It kind of feels like someone punched a hole through my chest. Just sayin.

Random Rant

Today my cousin and I were decorating our house with these bizzare bubble stickers.

 We decided we wanted more fun decorations so we peaced out and headed to the World Market to see what we could find. There was plenty of lovely things, but the sweet little something that caught our eye was nowhere near the home decorating categroy. What we found was butternut squash pasta sauce. Can you say amazing? Actually is sounds sick (sick the way it used to be used- as in gross). But my cousin was determined to try something new. We wanted to be all...cultured. So we grabbed it, some tortellini, delicious oil & garlic dipping sauce, some amazing blackberry pomegranate italian soda (seriously that stuff is my new favorite, PLEASE go try some!).

Also, I love it when people post random useless information on facebook. I especially love statuses that explain every single second of someone's day.

(soandso) just woke up! I climbed out of bed. Then I said my prayers. Then I went to the bathroom. Then I went downstairs. Then I ate some cereal. Then I checked my watch. Then I took a shower. Now I am puting on my mascara as I update my status. As soon as I am finished I am going to walk to my car and then I will drive down the street then I will turn right then left then right and end up at the supermarket where I will buy cheese. Love you facebookers!

Also, I REALLY love status games when people change their last name to the first person who 'likes' their status. It's especially awesome when I don't know who my friends are because of these fun games.

And last, but not least, I love when people leave everyone hanging out their status. [(soandso) is so sad.] [comment: why?] [no response]. If you don't want to talk about it, there is this thing where you don't have to post it on facebook. Crazy how that works.

I am sure this is all exactly what Mark Zuckerburg intended when he created what was once known as 'The Facebook'. I think perhaps the Winklevii should have suggested not only exclusivity for college students, but also for everyone who doesn't want to deal with Farmville invites and 30 comment long status conversations.

Sorry if that rant is offensive, it is late and I am tired. Facebook means different things to different people. Everyone can use it how they like. I just had to put my thoughts somewhere.
