plea of a desperate teen

dear mister border guard,

hi. how are you? good? good.

so..you might have guessed i kinda want to cross the border. i dont have a passport..is that gonna be a problem? see officer, i tried real, real hard to get it..i went up to calgary four times in four days and each time it just didnt work out..the passport gods have it out for me i guess.

i have a valid licence and birth certificate and you can even call my parents if you need further reasoning to let me cross. all i want to do is hear the prophet's words..there is a good chance that you have no idea who or what i am talking about. just goin to utah for a few days sir :)

you know what mr. border patrol guy? just check my criminal record and you'll surely find that i have a clean slate. i dont understand why you dont just let people with a clean slate across in the first place..this passport crap is unnecessary.

anywho, just figured i'd jot down this little plea to maybe convince yo to let me across..come on, no one will know :)




control yourself

just found this and figured i would share. good good song.

to do list:

1. finish english research argumentative essay on capital punishment. (fun fact! it costs more money to try, convict and execute a criminal than it does to keep him/her in jail for the rest of their lives.)

2. study for microbio exam tomorrow! also make flashcards.

3. fold laundry. and make bed.

4. bring laya that book i told her i would bring on tuesday..sorry bout that by the way

5. find a chemistry course to take over the summer! because i got into the harlingen program i need to take a college level chemistry. i'm exhausting all of my options..the college doesnt offer the proper course and the university offers like one..becky might be heading to texas sooner than anticipated!

6. fill out acceptance papers, loan forms, blah blah blah

7. finish my book, fire by kristin cashore..so so good! also: the third book in the hunger games series comes out on august 24th..im counting the days

ps-new favorite artist? yeasayer. check out ambling alp and ONE.

pps- best office episode ever!


"i hoped and they called me on a mission.."

my jonny got his call :) nevada las vegas! woohoo! the same mission that my dad served in. fun fact? jonny's uncle jon (lol) was my dad's zone leader. crazy hey?

i'm so happy for him..i've never been present when someone was opening their call and i was a bundle of nerves! and may or may not have cried when he read it haha. its all so real now! he doesnt leave till august 25, but i have a feeling that the time is gonna go by real, real fast. i'm not ready for that yet :(

i'm so proud of my missionary!


second post?

two posts in one day? sure. i have lots to say i guess.

things that i have neglected to mention:

1. our fabulous trip to waterton!

we fed deer five gum. no, they did not chew it, just swallowed. laya i know what youre thinking..resist.

Quote of the day:
Jonny: they look like giant deer.
Becky: they ARE giant deer..
Jonny: i mean bunnies.

we played on the plateau by prince of wales.
photogenic, no?

we climbed stairs at prince of wales and looked at the mountains and the parking lot.

we snuck into the prince of wales! every winter they leave one door open and we happened to find it. we ventured inside and this is what we found! i was creeped out for two reasons:
1. i watched the shining not too long ago
2. i am a major wimp when it comes to supernatural stuff and other things..that needs to change.

2. jonny sent in his mission papers on the 7th and should be recieving his call in the next two weeks :) im so excited for him! its gonna be sad when he's gone cause he's my best friend but im so excited for him to have all those incredible spiritual experiences! he also quit at wendy's, thank goodness. he's now working at southland trailers (where daddy works). jon's installing flooring in stock trailers and flat decks. what an improvement hey? the only catch is that he works from 6 am to two thirty in the afternoon..keeps our curfew pretty mellow.

i lucked out a little bit :)

3. i got accepted to the Texas State Technical College Dental Hygiene program. i found out last night and burst into tears..last night was kinda dramatic lol. i was freakin out a lil bit because entrance into this program is super competitive but i made it :)

today we hung out in the river bottom. we played on a huge stone arrangement of a rattlesnake complete with a spinning rattler. we also convinced five year old that we were married and i was expecting a child. you know the thing used in architecture to make a structure stronger? like triangles used in bridges? jonny and i climbed the first one of those on the train bridge today, again reinforcing my major wimpness. we crashed an event going on at the westside chapel..still not sure what was going on. jonny tried to coach me whike playing call of duty. though i had to remind him several times to be patient with me, i learned well and actually had a little bit of fun..for like ten minutes. we checked out a house on the westside. im kinda feeling like a move would be a good thing right now..the house was way cute too. there's a lot of factors that hinder this opportunity though..i'll keep you posted. we watched the stars..or rather the clouds. it was a beautiful night though!

and now, here i am..good night world


kids i hated in elementary school?

cause i figured you were all dying to know.

revert here to get the origins of this blog!

1-Patricia. She was the girl in class that would chew on her pencil and then polish it off like it was a chocolate bar or something. remember when you would receive little points or some form of currency for good behavior and the like? we spent ours on little trinkets and toys. what did patricia buy? a giant pencil. yes, my dear friends, she ate the whole thing. i tried it once, eating a pencil eraser i mean, out of curiosity..never again.

2-Tonya. What a character this girl was. She would wear her hair in a ponytail which is fairly normal, nothing you would blink an eye at. the twist is that the bottom part of her head would be shaved bald. over the next few weeks, her bare head would grow increasingly shaggier until it was sheared again. after tonya moved, my mom snitched her lunchbox from the lost and found..i never used it. or admitted to it at least.

3-Ray McKay. The classic teacher's pet. he had an abnormal overabundance of earwax that never failed to creep me out

4-Nolan. He first came to school in grade 7 and had remarkably bad body odor..oh junior high. love it.

my memory is failing me at this moment in time..old age'll do that to ya.


suffering from a lack of creativity; therefore, this is the title

remember all the griping and moaning i did in my last post about my job? i take it all back. rewind to work this morning.

becky: hey paul. can i leave at 11:30 for an appointment?

paul: sure! you'll be done for the afternoon?

becky: well..i can come back if you need me too!

paul: its up to you.

becky: shut up. (in my head btw)

so here i am watching phantom of the opera and catching up on my blogging at two nineteen on a monday afternoon. how glorious.

happy marchmas to all, and to all a good night!

odd that alaya and i both referred to christmas in our posts? yes.

merry march everyone! it would appear that the dreary days of winter have come to a close. call me naive, but i am hoping, nay, praying that the snow will not return. i have been wearing flip flops for the past two weeks and i plan on keeping it that way. i am most definitely not a winter person, although this winter has been enjoyable..and by enjoyable i mean it went by really fast. the roads are nice again :) and im not late for work because i have to scrape my windows! im late because i sleep in as much as possible. tommorrow's temperature? a balmy 16.

suck it, winter!

i realized today that i hate my job.

pros of working at paul's:
- he's an amazing boss
-decent hours (8:00 to 5:00..usually)
-sweet perks (dental, staff parties, $100 bonuses, etc)
-working with my mama :) awe..
-good pay
-working with alaya (second reference in one post..nice work.)
-working with other enjoyable staff members
-uniform allowance (a hundred bucks to spend on work-related attire)
-the paycheque (check?) . cha ching.

cons of working at paul's:
-i scrub instruments. all day long. here's how it works: there are three sterilization rooms where clean instruments are stored and dirty instruments are deposited. when the assistants/hygienists have thoroughly soiled the instruments, they drop them off in these rooms where alaya and i, akin to scavenging animals, glean the trays and proceed to scrub each individual instrument with a toothbrush. following this task, the instruments are deposited into an ultrasonic (a noisy little machine filled to the brim with a bacteria-eating fluid which proceeds to vibrate the instruments clean). upon the completion of this cycle, we bag the instruments in sterile bags and they are processed through a statim, a machine which utilizes steam and heat to eradicate the remnants of bacteria. this process is repeated hundreds of times throughout the day.

glamorous, no?

this is a small portion of the menial tasks we are exposed to. the list includes filing charts, pulling charts, stocking various dental stuff, cleaning operatories, and fulfilling a hygienists' every beck and call..also distributing instruments and setting up every tray in the office with the needed supplies. the list goes on and on really.

oh my life.

ps- i spoke too soon..there was frost on my windows this morning.

pps- i need to incorporate pictures in my posts..i also want to buy tanning minutes.
