This one time...


Yea... So for those of you who are wondering "what the heck Staci, when did you decide this!?" let me tell you... it was the most spontaneous decision of my life! One day at camp I was talking to my good, best friend Ashlee and she said I should move to Flagstaff. And at the time, I was like "umm no thanks". But then a few events happened and I was more like, "ummm OK!". So then I talked to my other good, best friend Bethany who is a wonderful teacher at Flagstaff High School and she said she might be able to get me a job as a para professional in her classroom. I was definitely on board! Thinking for the future, this would be GREAT experience for when Im a teacher! Soooo.... when all was said and done, I got the job and am now living in a house in Flagstaff working at Flagstaff High School and loving it! The only down side is that I work at a high school with a ton of teenagers, and frankly.. Im not a huge fan of high school kids. I find them rude and self-centered. BUT, I work with some of the cutest kids ever and they are teaching me SO much about my abilities and in general, how to work with the population I have grown to love so much. Basically, good things are going to come from this year, I can tell already!

The title of this song is backwards for my post, but I like that band so deal with it :)


Its official. I finished my LAST class at MCC today with my EDU 220 final. When I say final, I mean the biggest waste of time ever where the teacher asked us to bring in an "artifact" that represented the most important thing we learned in the class. So cheesy. Just dont make us come.

P.S. When I typed "ASU" into google images, there were a lot of scantily clad girls. Apparently being an ASU girl means being a fake blonde with big boobs and no clothes. Not me!

P.P.S Camp is in 15 days. Yup. You read right! And also my best friend comes home in... not that much time... well like 2 months. But compared to the 6 it was when she left, it is super exciting!!

Everything is bugging me.

OK, I'm warning you now that this blog post is going to be me complaining. And if you choose to read it, after you are done you might not want to be my friend anymore... So if we are super good friends, just don't read it. And then we can stay good friends forever.

First off, I sometimes get depressed when I see on facebook that weirder people than me are in relationships. I know that sounds SO MEAN. And it kind of is so mean.. But really. If there are guys out there who can handle the girls I'm talking about.. Then there must be at least ONE guy out there that can handle me. Come at me bro! HAHA! I cant believe I just put that in my blog, but Im keeping it because it doesn't really work in that way, yet I find it hilarious! 

Also... our couch is Yea. I said couch. Its cushions REFUSE to stay on and then I find myself LITERALLY being eaten by it!! And when you are being eaten by anything, even a couch, its just not comfortable!

School... can bite me. And that's all I will say about that.

OK, I promise that soon I will post a very happy :) and cheerful :] blog post. I just needed to get that out of my system!

No title will fit this post.

So since its Easter weekend, I thought I would share with you the movie scene I have been thinking about ALL WEEK. Its from the wonderful movie Cheaper By the Dozen. The scene is when they are taking their family Christmas picture and the mom is giving one of the kids a hard time about wearing black. Here it is:

Kid 1: Black works mom! Jesus like had his funeral on Christmas!
Kid 2: He died on Easter barbie!
Kid 3: He was resurrected on Easter moron!

So now, if you are ever confused, as I'm sure some people get due to the lack of celebrating the TRUE meaning of holidays, you can read this and know, that Jesus was resurrected on Easter. Going off that, Easter. What a wonderful day/event to be celebrated! But WHAT.THE.HECK has our society done to this holiday!? Here is what I'm thinkin happened a long time ago:
  • So today is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We arent sure if people are gonna wanna do that without some sort of.. object to celebrate with. EGGS! who doesnt like eggs!? But eggs have nothing to do with Jesus... Its ok because we will follow eggs with BUNNIES! And the best part about it all, BUNNIES DONT LAY EGGS!
I think this is literally how this holiday came to be what it is. Here is my challenge to all 2 of you who read my blog: celebrate Easter this year with your WHOLE focus on Jesus Christ, his ultimate sacrifice, and his this.

On a completely different note, today I spent WAY too much money. But in the end, I fell in love. Yes. I really did. I fell in love... with my new BOOTS! haha GOTCHA! you thought I was going to go into a long, romantical story about how I fell in love with a handsome man, who swept me off my feet. NOPE! I fell in love with a pair of boots that support my feet.

Also, I have a new crush. The guy who works at Albertsons... Its going to be a great thing. Just wait and see.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

What the fuNk?!

Dear School,
I have been going to school for what seems like forever. And I am super grateful for the opportunity I have to do so. However, sometimes you get to be too much. Your teachers seem to think that silly busy work will help me become a better teacher myself. Well, I don't believe in this. Maybe one day I will appreciate what they are doing. But as of right now, not a fan. 
Sincerely, A not so excited student

Dear Apartment,
It would be like really cool if you could clean yourself this time. I'm not asking for much, the dishes just need to be done, the floor vacuumed, my clothes put away and the bathroom cleaned. Its not that big of a deal, so just do this nice thing this one time. Thank you.
Sincerely, Too lazy to pick up a broom

Dear Money,
I find you to be the most worldly and stupid thing that unfortunately makes the world go round. Whatever happened to LOVE making the world go round?! You know, the times when you would go to the store for some potatoes and the guy selling them would say, "I'll give you a sack of potatoes for a smile and a promise that you will do a service to someone today". I never lived in those times, I'm not sure those times ever existed, but we should jump on that. OR if that is asking too much, I would like to somehow be part of winning the Mega Million lottery without actually buying a ticket...
Sincerely, I hate money but still want some

Dear Lee Simpson,
I think you are one of my favorite people in the world. You make me laugh. ALL.THE.TIME. I am super glad we got to hang out this week. I enjoyed listening to Zac Brown Band, going to Red Robbin for lunch(yumm), going to Bahama Bucks and in general just talking with you.
Sincerely, Your biggest fan

Dear Current Song Obsessions,
I really appreciate the fact that you always put me in a better mood when I listen to you. Something about hearing you on the radio always brightens my day and even though in about a week I will be over you due to my playing you non-stop, I will always be grateful.
Sincerely, I cant believe one of the songs is by Nicki Minaj

Dear Sadie,
I love you. You really drive me crazy sometimes and have brought out some very bipolar behaviors in me, but never-the-less I think you are so freakin adorable and I love that little face of yours, especially when its sleeping on my chest cuddling. I also really haven't thanked you enough for FINALLY getting the hang of the whole potty training thing. Its great!
Sincerely, My heart belongs to you

Dear Camp,
You are really coming up fast. I am so insanely excited for you but am getting nervous for my new position. Please let training week not kill me...OR give me stress/freak outs.
Sincerely, I take fire drill day too seriously

Dear Me,
Try focusing on school, and figuring out who you are. Also, boys just aren't worth the work right now, stop worrying. And also, try not caring so much about what people think. Ultimately the only opinion that matters is God's and I think he basically loves you a lot. 
Sincerely, The smarter you

Dear You,
Sorry if this wasn't enjoyable for you. But if you made it all the way to this point, its your fault for continuing to read. 
Sincerely, A not so good blogger

Now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere..

Sometimes all it takes to get me back to my happy place is a relaxing few days doing nothing. So this spring break I took off to pinetop and stayed with my grandparents for a few days. Where you might say this is a lame spring break, I say it is exactly what I needed. I didnt have anything to worry about. I READ. FOR FUN! A great book actually called "The Lucky One". Total romantic, adorable kinda book. Nicholas Sparks sure knows how to get his demographic(young single women who desperately hope their future husbands will be as good as the men in the books) to read till they finish his books. And then I started reading "The Help". It is really good too! Just havent finished it yet! I brought Sadie up with me. We had a good time front porch sittin and walking in the wonderful weather! She did NOT get along with my grandparents cats however! But we still had fun :)

The day from and hell... AND the day after :)

Ok sorry to those of you who read my blog and see the title and think "WOAH Staci, that is NOT a nice word!" because you know what? That word is just how yesterday felt!! Im sure you all know I was in a car accident. But let me tell you the beginning of my day. So I work in an elementary school M/W and I leave my apt at 7:30am. Well the night before I was uber sick and was up till about 3:30-4:00am( So then my alarm didnt go off. I woke up at 7:45 when I normally leave at 7:30...Fail. I went to the elementary school and got there 20 min late, wound up having to leave 1/2 hour early. I barely made it into my apt when I throw up(thankfully in the bathroom). I then have to go to math class and basically it took all I had to not leave because I was so nauseous. After math class my day was fairly ok and normal, aside from not feeling good. Well then I am on my way home and am stopped at a red light. I had been sitting at the light for awhile and then someone slammed into the back of my car.hard. I kinda panicked and decided that since my car could move I would pull into the gas station on the corner, assuming the car that hit me would follow. I WAS VERY WRONG. He sped away! so there I was with a broken ken, heart racing, body shaking and... no clue what to do. Ill spare you the rest of the boring details but basically I am MAD AT THAT GUY! I then decided I needed to end this day P R O N T O. PRONTO. so I went to bed.

NEXT DAY! Ok I decided I deserved a break. So I slept in and didnt go to class(oops.) But then I got to skype my BEST FRIEND MEGHAN! It was sooooooOOOOOOOooooOOOO good!! I basically started crying as soon as I heard her voice on the computer. I was THAT.EXCITED. It really just made my whole day better!!! Like for real. We talked for about an hour ish and it was just fabulous!!

Anywho. this week looks like this: bad day-1, good day-1. We will see how the rest of this week pans out!!
