My Thinking Spot

Everyone has one. For some, it might be in the shower, or when they're falling asleep, others when they exercise. Me? Mine's on the pot.


I don't know what it is, but every time I go to the bathroom, I come back with all kinds of ideas. Doesn't matter if it's only been 30 seconds, I will come back with a new topic of conversation, a resolve to an issue, or I'll have remembered something that I've been meaning to get done for months.

School is for fools. Part Duece.

So, I almost failed all my classes this semester. Literally.


I have been proud of my straight C's for the past 4+ years. Im continuously uttering the phrase, "It's just (*insert important class)" The point is, it doesn't matter what it is, I will rationalize a reason why I need to go bridge jumping right then, and how my class is irrelevant.


Normally, this is not an issue. At midterms, I was on track for a 2.o. Then I went out of town for 10 days the week before finals, only to forget to turn in several projects, and papers and I didn't take an online exam while I was gone. (I was at Banks Lake. COME ON!)

So I came back to a disaster. I had emails from my teachers asking if I was okay because they hadn't seen or heard from me for a couple of weeks. Well, I turned on my Dyer charm and, that's right, sweet talked my way into a second chance. Now we all know that I am the last person to deserve their saving grace, I did this to myself. Regardless, I think I may even get B's due to their Christian hearts. Boy how I love BYU-Idaho.



*By important class, I know what you're thinking, and no, I do not take Chemistry. Im referring to Sculpture or Canoeing or something.

What's my stereotype?


I have noticed in my many years that people stereotype others. No matter what. In my many years, I have come to the conclusion that they are usually inaccurate, just how every blonde is not dumb. How someone is described on paper is not what they are in real life. I am going to describe 3 people, and I want you to guess who is who and what their stereotype is.....


Person 1:
Wears gladiator sandals, cut offs and a purple sweatshirt from American Apparel every day. Has swooping bangs and a dramatic A-line bob. Has a specific taste in music and loves attending shows. 

Person 2: 
Wears flat billed hats, plaid shorts, and skater shoes. Has more than one car, including a truck and a mustang. Other toys include a 4 wheeler, snow mobile and a motorcycle. Is loaded, single, and the ladies love him. 

Person 3:
Wears DI dresses every day. Cuts own hair, and doesn't even brush it. Rides a road bike and loves camping, swimming and doing anything outside. 

Have a good image in your head? Now let me mix it up a little...

Did you know that person 1 is full Mexican from Georgia and is not artistic and doesn't like skinny boys?
Did you know person 2 has never sold for summer sales?
Did you know person 3 doesn't own Chacos and would never give up meat?
