Last full day

Well, for the most part this whole Utah thing is over. Not much else to do. Finish packing and put everything in the car, say goodbye to a few people and then pick up dad. Finally. Mom has called about 6 times today so I know that she is excited, Shannon called and told me that I better be appreciative of everything or I pretty much will die, and my friends pretty much have cut me off from any new information or gossip. Not bad for one day.
Went to lunch with a friend today and had a very good conversation. It seems that everyone has there own opinion on me or what I do. It is not really that bad to have so much input, but I find it funny that for some reason people feel the need or obligation to let me know what they think or tell me how I am wrong. I don't really mind but I feel it funny that they can just let loose without any thought of how I might take it. Oh well.
I am nervous to go home. I don't know why, but I am. Maybe it is because now I have to figure out most everything or maybe it is because there are no more reasons or options but to do what I want. Too much freedom to accomplish something. I figured out today that for the most part of my life, well, since I was 19, I have always had someone else to ask what they wanted or had to do what they wanted to do. It was never my decision alone to just say here is what I want and I go do it. This I have found is not an easy thing to overcome. I will actually sit and think, what do I want to do? Movie, Workout, play tennis?? Then just sit there like I am waiting on someone else to help me decide. DUMB! Goal # 1: Make decisions and do them. Easy enough right? We'll see.
Enough for today, I am tired, friends came over tonight and they just left. Good friends gone, good friends coming. I am excited to come home!!! One more day. This should be the beginning of things going right for me. Yeah!!! - Steven

3 days and counting

I think that it is funny that people actually read what I write. I'm guessing Justin is tearthereheadoff because he commented on one of my blogs and I didn't know it was him. I thought some crazy guy just happened to find my blog and decided to comment about Darth Vader using his force to choke me. Scary! Today has been pretty common place. Not a whole lot new and exciting. Very vanilla.
Oh, except for some lady came in t buy a membership and everything was going great and when I asked her for her credit card she started crying for no reason. Total melt down right there in front of me. I almost laughed. She just got up without speaking and left. Her friend later heard what happened and came up to me to tell me that her friend has some rare, crazy fear of credit cards and that I scared her to death. Only in Utah!!!
Ok. I am not proud of this but we do on occasion bet on football games at my club. Well one of the guys lost a bet on the Denver Broncos\ Raiders games in which he has to smell something of our discretion 2 times daily for a week. Well we found some milk that had been sitting in the fridge for what we know of as 4 months and we have been microwaving and adding some contents here and there daily to see him throw up. Well today some kid thought he would be cool and drink the concoction for 20 bucks. We gladly got out the money and he drank every little sip. 4 people threw up just watching and smelling. It was the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life up to this point. Jus the day in the life of a gym!
It snowed in the mountains yesterday about 500 feet above my house. Beautiful. It is getting very cold already and I know that I am not going to miss it.
I think that I am getting too much like dad. I have already began to plan my trip with dad to California. Planning out what route to take and what stops and what music to listen too. I feel like Jack Nicholson in As Good as It gets when they go on there trip to ask Greg Kinnears parents for money.
Anyways the Outback count was raised by 35 today. Good night! -Steven

Same O Same O

Today was kind of weird for me in the fact that things are kind of winding down. Spoke with my bosses boss today. He has been very supportive of me going home and can see the value in going home. Nice to have that support from the stand point that he could have made it difficult for me and he didn't.
Met a very interesting fellow from England today. He was the actual first Darth Vader in the movie Star Wars!!!! Big guy. Competed many times in the Mr. Universe competitions. Very nice. Don't get opportunities like that every day!
Packed a little more. Even though I am getting a lot of support from my bosses I feel like there are many who a really upset that I have come to know quite well. They are not very pleased that I am leaving. Some have gone to the extent to, in a joking manner, give me the silent treatment. Any and all who talk to me are considered enemies of the state as they put it and mocked for there betrayal. It is all in fun, but I wonder sometimes if I had more to do here with those of my friends that were not members of the church!
Jordan and I have come to be very good friends and I feel that I will miss him the most. We carpooled today and have continued to keep track of how many Subaru Outbacks we can find. In the past 3 months we have counted over 750 sitings with the longest chain of Outbacks being 7 in a row waiting for a light. Also, on our twisted and ever bored state we have come to know that at any time, you can sit on the corner of 500 south and 700 east and see no less than 6 Outbacks in the time it would take you to wait for a light to change and walk across the street. Stupid stuff that we have to love and enjoy about Utah!
Well that is all for tonight. I am calling it an early night. Long day. - Steven

My Sunday

Today was almost too quiet. For a house full of guys it was awfully quiet. No one was home. I had to go to work at 9 this morning to finish out some hours at work. Lucrative day for the most part. Not something that you really want to say for Sunday, but if you have to go in you might as well make some money at it. Tried to be more spiritual today. Listened only to church music and just focused on going to church. Went to sacrament meeting. Singles ward. Not really to meet people. Don't think that I am even close to that yet. A girl that goes to my gym goes there and she invited me. She knows Bud Andreasan, Get this, find out she is a marriage and family counselor from Northern California. Great!!! She was nice and for the most part we just made fun of everyone that spoke. We have come up with the new and exciting speaker. See, in this singles ward, Everyone seems to want to put their "dating resume" out there during their talk. Served in this mission, have this job, and so on. 15 minutes in and they are just getting started on something that they were to speak on. Church went fast. Rained most of the day. Spent a lot of time just thinking and packing for California. Talked to Mom and Scott. It seems like he is excited for me to come home. I really want to do things with my family for a while. I haven't really ever been home. With traveling with soccer and school and mission and getting married so soon I really feel like I have missed out on some great opportunities. We'll see how things go. It never really seems to work out exactly how I picture it, but we'll see, it has to change sometime, right??? Anyways, its around 1:30 am and I am still up thinking and reading. Hopefully this is what I am supposed to write about. Who knows??? The funny thing is is Shannon is the only one who realy knows what is proper in a blog. She's funny like that. Good night for now....

The start of a new Project!!!!

Once again Shannon has roped me into a "must do" project as she calls it. First, it was Myspace and know blogging. I'm not sure if I have to put .com, but I'll be a rebel today and not put it. Things may get incredibly monotonous with this blog, but, oh well. Work, sleep. Work, sleep. Work, sleep.
I am nervous a little bit about the spelling and grammar that needs to be used in these instances. You can't blog and use crazy and disorienting spelling like texting. You have to really dot your I's and cross your T's. I don't know if I can handle the pressure. I know that Jen really looks at this stuff. (See her 6 crazy things about her on her myspace page). Anyways, we shall see!!!!!
