Meagan sent me these pictures from St Thomas just this past week.
They are from Halloween and from the day we left.
It's funny to think now how excited I was to leave,
Because I would give anything to be back there now.
With Brian and all of our stuff
Getting on the plane
And Meagan said to show whatever emotion we were feeling about leaving...
And Halloween was so much fun
I was Alice in Wonderland
Kassidy was Harry Potter
Meagan was an Indian Princess
And Cory and Joss were Missionaries
(hence the "arm distance" and "breaking rules" pictures)
I first saw him live when he opened for One Republic
I finally downloaded the full album last week,
and I have yet to take it out of my car.
It is so good!
And this song has been one of my favorites.
It is called
"You Don't Have To Believe Me"
and I think the lyrics are so good.
You don't have to believe me I'm just speaking my mind
you look lovely as always you get that all the time
you don't have to believe me when I tell you that i'm impressed
but you sure better believe me when I say you deserve the best
you don't have to believe me but i'm not gonna lie
i've seen all the attention you get from other guys
you don't have to believe me when i tell you i like your dress
but you sure better believe me when i say you deserve respect
it feels like nobody's on your side no access to your pride
you gotta learn to take control your whole body is a temple so
you've got a choice to make and your mind is what's at stake
so before we build this love please believe that you're good enough
you don't have to believe me but I'm not often wrong
they've been taking advantage and it's gone on too long
you don't have to believe me when we're dancing out on the floor
but you sure better believe me when i say you are worth much more
you don't have to believe me
but you sure better believe me when i tell you you're due for love
i don't want nobody else
and nobody else is gonna treat you the way they ought to
and that's what you deserve
if I could make you see it
so you can truly believe it
so you won't even need it
no, no, no, no, no, no, no
you don't have to believe me
and i continue on
you've still got the potential
that you've had all along
you don't have to believe me when you're shaking what you got
but you sure better believe me when i tell you your mind's what's hot.
I have issues with shipping and delivering services.
Last week UPS and I had problems.
This week it is the United States Post Office...again!
First let me just say, this is not the first time that I have not been the biggest fan of the post office.
It started quite some time ago.
Dont believe me?
Heres a list to prove that they are dumb:
If my car is within 5 feet of our mail box, they wont stop to deliever the mail! Even if it is not directly in front of it, and they have plenty of space to get to it, they wont!
Every time I go in there to send something, this one lady treats me like I dont know anything. She talks down to me, she glares at me through her glasses, the whole bit. But the moment I go in there with my dad or brother or anyone else, she is all smiles and really helpful. What the crap did I ever do to you lady?
The very first package my mom sent to St. Thomas took 23 days! Seriously? How does it take 23 days to get 1 package? My roommates all got packages that were sent after mine, before me.
My friend sent me a Christmas package to St. Thomas. He sent it on December 6th, it got to St. Thomas on January 18th. I left St. Thomas on January 2nd. Sweet thanks post office for sucking again! Luckily Laura was so sweet and sent it to me in Utah, minus a few of the treats that had gone bad in the time it took to get to me in the first place.
Then today just added to the list. I go there to mail 2 things. Simple things that would take at the very longest 5 minutes. When I get in there no one else is there. In the time it took me to write down the addresses, 2 people were in line. 2 people no big deal right? Wrong! The other lady that works at the local post office is so slow that it took over 20 minutes to help these 2 women! 20 minutes! One of them only had 1 item she was mailing! Grrrr...
