It Makes No Difference

When Whitney left on her mission, I'm pretty sure I cried myself to sleep for a month or two listening to this song. Partially because it's a great love loss song and it's impossible for me not to cry when listening to it, but also it so perfectly described my feelings in that moment. I felt SO alone. We used to joke about how I was Whitney's barnacle, but I really was. I wasn't independent and unless she was around I wasn't outgoing socially. This may be a complete shock to some of you, but I'm kind of a shy person and in some ways when she left I reverted back to the shy girl I was before we were friends.

Then I got better; I realized that a year and a half really wasn't that long, I was capable of making friendships equally as good as the one I have with her and being an independent person really wasn't all that hard.

But recently all of that has been harder for me to accept and maybe it's because I miss my little Whitneykins and I know she'll be back soon, but for some reason this song is speaking to me once again.

A quick side note, I really wish I could have found a clip that started a minute before, because the story told at the beginning of this clip is probably my favorite part of this whole movie. Oh high Rick Danko-you were magic!

Best story this weekend

Prepare yourself for a sweetness overload.

Over the weekend I got to see my cousin Molly and her daughter Bess, who is quite possibly the cutest girl I have ever met. Don't believe me? Well then here's a picture:
Adorable, no?

Anyway, back to the story. Molly told me about a conversation she had with Bess a couple weeks after seeing me at Christmas, which took place while watching some sort of dancing show:

Bess: I could never dance like that....but Sarah could.
Molly: Sarah who?
Bess: My Sarah.
Molly: You mean my cousin Sarah?
Bess: No, my cousin Sarah.

I almost died when she told me this. How sweet is that? "my Sarah". I've never been owned by a child before, but she's so adorable I really don't mind.

Another obligatory Bess shot:

She's so Rockstar!

Always be wary of how you dress for work.

In the past few years my attractiveness has increased exponentially and I’ve had to alter my dress for work accordingly. I never wear high heels or skirts anymore (brings far too much attention to the gams) and I rarely wear jewelry, accessories or super form fitting/low cut tops (for…ahem…a similar reason).

Today, I wore a pink headband with an embellished flower on one side. This was a mistake.

So, there’s a guy that works on my floor that kind of gives me the creeps (not full creeps, just partial) and I’m sure he was just trying to be nice, but it still left me feeling weird.

Let me set the stage, an attractive girl with pretty flower in her hair (that’s me!) walks down the hall towards the bathroom. A mildly creepy man, that is FAR too old for the attractive girl rounds the hallway corner and says:

“Oh hey! You look very pretty with that bow in your hair!”

The attractive girl stumbles through some gracious reply and leaves the hall.

Sometime later the two have another chance meeting in the hall where the mildly creepy man mutters:

“Pretty in Pink!”

The attractive girl stumbles through some gracious reply and leaves the hall, but thinks to herself:

“Thank you, we've established that I'm pretty, but please just go away and leave me alone!”

Trifecta night out and new nicknames

Me: (something bitchy beyond belief) Ugh! Can we just get food now!?!
Leah: Yes, gosh you’re bitchy when you haven’t eaten. You’re like the little shop of horrors plant yelling “FEED ME!!”
Bridgette: That should be you’re nickname!
Me: No!
Leah: Yes!! That’s awesome!
Bridgette: Hey you guys, it’s not “Little Shop of Horrors” it should be “Little Shop of Whores”! Get it? It’s like a pun!
(Sometime Later)
Bridgette: Sarah, would you sell me in your shop?
Me: Of course!!
Bridgette: Good.
Me: Hey, it shouldn’t be “Little Shop of Whores” it should be “Shop of Little Whores” ‘cause we’re tiny!
In Unison: Ahhh yeeaaahhh!!!
(Trifecta Fist bump)

Conversations of late

Me: How do I get in these situations?
Princess Leia: You’re too nice, everyone else just says no!
CocaKoler: Better Bitch than sorry. That’s my motto.

CW: All the boys here and at the UW that I’ve talked to have told me all they’re looking for is a girl that dresses modest and isn’t “scary”.
Me: Well I guess that puts me out of the running.

Princess Leia: Wait, what exactly did he say? Any punctuation or anything?
Me: No punctuation, but the “D” is capitalized.
CocaKoler: Oh, well then if the “D” is capitalized that changes everything…..no, I have no idea.

Princess Leia: He was like “Wait, what did that guy want?” and I wanted to be like “to have sex with Sarah”.

Me: Does anyone mind if I take my skirt off in the car?
Princess Leia: Well if you’re sitting next to Marky-Mark and the Funky Bunch…
Me: Well then I can sit in the front.
Marky-Mark and the Funky Bunch: Hey!
All: Oooh, Mark!

Happy Pi Day!!

Yum! Celebrating Pi day by eating blackberry pie and watching Pushing Daisies is the bestest! :D

Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves

How can you not be pumped for the day when you listen and watch this in the morning?? I'm pretty sure this is going to be an awesome day!

Pretty sure this explains why things never work out for me.

Watch 7:16-7:33-it illustrates my point. Every time I get close to a guy I run away. When I was 14 a boy I liked asked me to dance, I said "no" and literally ran away from him....like out of the building. Things really haven't changed in the 10+ years since that dance.

I break guys’ hearts.

I don't mean to, there's nothing malicious in my doings-I just get scared or self-conscious and run away. Which in the end really only hurts me. ‘Cause all those guys I run away from, while they might be hurt for a time, they always find someone else. And I’m left sitting by myself with a pile of missed opportunities.

But there comes a time in a girl’s life when a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And this girl’s going to stand still and not run anymore.
