I highly dislike that phrase. I think it's stupid when people blame their idiocy on "blonde moments". And especially when they're not even blonde, they're pretty much just openly offending all blondes in the process. I do admit, I am pretty dang stupid sometimes, but I'm not going to blame it on the fact that I'm blonde, because that doesn't even make sense! And everyone does stupid things. EVERYONE! Blonde, brunette, red-head, chinese, black. Everyone. Why do blondes have to be the ones to take the credit for universal stupidity?

But, I do think blonde jokes are funny. Only because they are jokes, and not actually based on an individual. Because, let's be honest.. I think almost every joke I hear is funny (unless it's about Helen Keller, those are just cruel).

So for goodness sakes, man up and take credit for your dumb moments.

Boredom + Roommates being gone = This post.

So, Jon's home. And I really really like it. It's pretty cool, because every now and then, I'm in a situation where I really don't want to be (meaning I'm completely 100% bored).. for example, my Ethics and Values class. So, I'll grab a piece of paper and a pen, and start to write a letter to Jonathan.... WOAH, I DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT ANYMORE! Instead, I grab my PHONE and send him a little text (: And you wanna know the coolest part?! I don't have to wait a week and a half for his response! Magical, just magical. Also, here's another magical point. Before Jon left on his mission, we broke up a total of 3 times? Maybe 4. But that's not the important part. We were best friends, and I loved him to death, but I just felt like there was "something" missing. And it sucked, because I could never pin-point that "something", I just felt that it wasn't right. Plus, there were a few things that I wasn't very happy about... Okay, I'll say it. He was immature. But what can you expect from a 19 year old boy!? I'll admit, I was immature also. And it just wasn't right. Then, 2 years went by, and we were both doing our own thing, and then VOILA! He's home (: We see each other, and it's as if no time had ever passed. We were ourselves, completely comfortable, and still madly in love. His immatureness was gone (for the most part) and I didn't feel that "something" that I felt before. Now, don't get ahead in your thinking and assume that we're getting married next week. (He'll be in Hawaii next week.. We're shooting for the end of May :)

[This was the first picture ever taken of us as an official couple]

Bahaha, just kidding. We're not getting married. But I'm really really happy with the way things are between us. There's a good chance that he'll be in Utah in May for school? But that all depends on the decisions that he's making RIGHT THIS SECOND. Either that, or he goes back to boring old Idaho, where he doesn't know anyone. You know which one I'm rooting for..


I colored my hair. @(#*)@($&#! Crazy, huh? It only took me 20 & 1/2 years of living to get the balls to actually do it, but alas, the deed is done. AND I LOVE IT!! I've wanted to go lighter for quite some time now, but I think in the back of my mind I kept thinking that I had to wait until Jon saw my normal hair ONE more time when he got home before I could do anything drastic.. Which I don't know why I thought that, because when I mentioned that I wanted to do it, his exact response was "Do whatever you want, Babe." REALLY!? I waited two years for that response? Haha, so that night I made an appointment for the Wednesday after I got back from Washington. I was pretty nervous, because who knows of all the things that can go wrong when dying your hair?! When Brittanee finished, I took a shower, and the mirror was all fogged, so I had to wait until I was dressed to go out of my bathroom and find another mirror to look at my hair. HOLY FREAKING CRAP, IT WAS BLONDE! I didn't think it was going to be that blonde, and I felt like I was wearing a wig. I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it was just because I wasn't used to it. So I blow dried it, straightened it, and realized that it was way pretty! Just maybe not me? Then the next day, I loved it (: It's just perfect, and I can't believe I've waited this long to change my oh-so-boring hair. (Jon thinks it makes me look like I can handle my own business.. which I didn't understand at first. Basically, I look sophisticated, but in a hot way :)

Just to show the difference.. These aren't the best pictures to compare, but whatever. You get the point.


I'm going to California next week!! Me and 7 other girls!! Jealous?!?! Yeah, I would be too if I wasn't me. It's spring break at UVU, and technically, break doesn't start until Wednesday, but we're leaving on Monday (: What's two extra days of school to miss?? Pish posh. And we'll be in Disneyland for 2 full days!! I'm super excited about that.. I have quite amazing memories from that wonderful place! And other events that consume the rest of our week there. And, the best thing about it, is that it's not going to cost more than $300! That's including hotels for 3 nights, gas, food, Disneyland, EVERYTHING!! From Monday-Sunday! We got a BANGIN deal. And then when I get back, only one more week (hopefully) until Zac Morrell moves down here!! My life pretty much rocks, if I do say so myself (:

Well, that's my life update as of right now..
I need to get off my laptop and start doing homework. :( Bleh.

Saturday, March 5, 2011

I'm in SERIOUS trouble.

First of all, I know you all are wondering how everything went in Washington when I got to see my boy.. well, it was amazing! Everything was just the same as it was before he left; No awkwardness, no hesitation to be who we are, it was just us (: More mature, better looking us. And, I got to see him every day from Saturday to Thursday so it was AWESOME!! Except now, the Saturday that I get home, I'm realizing how much of an idiot I am. I thought I was going to be fine in school cause there wasn't any tests or anything big that I was missing.. But oh, don't worry. We just learned all new stuff in math, which we have to take a test on on Monday or Tuesday, and in my Ethics and Values class, which I'm already not doing too well on, we reviewed for our huge huge fatty test that I have to take on Tuesday. Plus, I have to make up a test for my Intro To Education class.. All of this = Shoot my brains out.

This weekend is not going to be fun. I'm so mad at myself.
But don't worry, I wouldn't have taken that time that I had with Jonathan to be at school.. Because seeing him was definitely worth it.. kinda.. But why did I have to be so stupid and miss so much school and think I was going to be fine if I didn't touch my homework all week?!!?!?

Here I go. Wish me luck. Pray for me. Send me little study fairies to help me out.

Today's agenda:


Thursday, February 17, 2011

Pizza Pie Cafe

Yes, I'm going to blog about my work. Well, more about the people at work. And no, it's not going to be the nicest.

-First of all, you should know that most of the time that I'm working, I'm on salad. Which entails: cutting lettuce, eggs, cucumbers, broccoli, stocking peas, turkey, can backups and making dressings, plus keeping an eye on the salad bar and making sure that it doesn't get too low for the customers. And yanno, I'm pretty freaking good at what I do. So that's fine. But on the weekdays, I have to leave at 3:30 to get to school in time. The next girl that comes in, doesn't come in until about 6:30, and she isn't the most intelligent person that we have working there. When someone closes the salad bar, they fill up all of the stuff that's on the salad bar (if you've been there, you should know what "stuff" I'm talking about) and then they put it in the fridge nice and orderly so that in the morning, all we have to do is take the stuff out of the fridge and place it on the salad bar: SHA-BANG! It's looking nice. And for some reason, we always have problems with the night salad girls.. So, I helped them out by writing a sign that says: "If you're closing the salad bar, FILL UP THE CROCS!!" (Crocs are the containers that hold all of the food that's on the salad bar) Pretty straight forward sign, right? Self explanatory? Yeah, that's what I thought too. But apparently, we need to be MORE straight forward. Because this morning, NOTHING WAS FULL! And it's irritating to me, because I only have half an hour to get things all set up before we open, and I have other things that I need to do before I start working on prepping the salad area. WHY ARE PEOPLE SO INCOMPETENT?!
-Next girl that happens to have the same name as girl number one, is also quite... stupid? Brainless? Whichever word you choose, it's basically the same thing. I was working on my stuff, as usual, and she comes up to me and asks if she can help. Sure! So there's an empty container and a big square strainer with turkey in it. So I told her to transfer the turkey from the strainer to the container. Now, how would you take care of this situation? Pour turkey into container. Simple. She asks me.. "Uh, how do I do that?" So I said "Pour the turkey into the container." "But how?" OH MY GOSH, YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! She's also the same girl that didn't know how to cut eggs..?

With an egg slicer that looks like this, HOW THE FREAK CAN YOU GET CONFUSED?!?

Now, you might say that because I'm getting irritated with these girls, I won't be a good elementary teacher because guaranteed, those kids aren't always going to do what I tell them. But there's a difference between 6-9 year olds and 20 year olds who should have some common sense by now and also be able to read.

My goodness, what kind of people are we hiring?!?!!

12 + Life

Good things happen in 12's.

-Check this out for the "Answers.com" reasons.
-12 Days of Christmas
-There was.. a weird movie named 12 about 12 jurors having to decide the fate of a teenager charged for murdering his stepdad?
(Okay, that's not so good)((Also, I've never seen this movie, I just looked up 12 in google, and that was one of the results))
-There are 12 donuts in a box (:
And the biggest reason of all right now...

Jonathan Kaleo O' Kalani Kamae comes home IN 12 DAYS FROM TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, you could say that I'm pretty freaking excited for the 25th of February (:

Fly home on Thursday the 24th, or Friday the 25th, catch up with my beautiful family and some good girl friends, wait for Jonathan to get realeased, AND THEN GO SEE HIM!!! We're hoping that he can convince the Stake President to release him the same day/night that he comes home, by my friend Zac said that it's not the easiest thing to do.. But, not gonna lie, I'm pretty freaking excited to see him, so the sooner the better!! Yes, I've thought about being at the airport with him, but he'll still be a missionary, and I'm not too sure how happy "some" people would be about us breaking the "no touching girls" rule.. So I've decided not to go, but to see him once he gets released. Because the last time I saw him, this was the closest we were able to get:

And I promise you, we're going to be a lot closer than that when I see him next!!

And then Jon and his parents will leave on March 4th to go back to Hawaii, and I will stay in Warsh until the 6th, and then come back to the freezing cold utah where school and work will be very much calling my name :(

AND THEN!!!!! I'll be home for a week, and the following Monday, March 14th, me and 7 other girls are road tripping to Vegas for a night and then Cali for the rest of the week!!! Freaking party time!!! The whole trip is going to cost around $300, counting a two day park hopper pass to Disneyland, hotels for 3 days, food for every single meal, The Wax Museum and a few other excursions. Holy freaking good deal, right?!? That's what I said too. It's going to be so much fun!!! And the girls I'm going with are: Holly Kendall, Carly Lockwood, Sarah Oaks (roommates), Jori Donaldson (roommate of Carly and Holly last year), Jessica Campbell, Vanessa Campbell (next door neighbors), and one of the Campbell sister's friends!

You could say that I have quite the amazing life, and I'd heartily agree (:

I've mentioned this before,

But I'm legitimately a hypochondriac. So please, if you could, refrain from telling me your health problems, that would save me so much struggling by trying to figure out how to live my life with your problems.

I'm also super easily persuaded, and I think I'm the same height as the people I surround myself with, or the same age.. My mind is just so super messed up. And I'm stubborn in the moment of a heated discussion, only to find out that after I've calmed down, I probably just sounded like an idiot because I hardly ever know what I'm talking about.

Holy shiz monkeys, I've got some issues!

Wednesday, February 2, 2011


You may think this is strange, but I seriously hate the days that I don't have math homework. I love love love love LOVE math!! (Maybe I should be a math major?) And it's not very often that we aren't assigned homework, unless a) he doesn't finish teaching the section all the way through or b) it's Friday, Saturday or Sunday. And I got my results from my first test... 75/80! That's a 94ish% (: The two that I got wrong were the two that I guessed on, so I feel pretty good about that! (Plus, the cute kid, Ronny, got a 72/80! ;)(that was rude.. I'm sorry Ronny) Anyways, tonight is one of those no homework nights. Maybe I'll just do some extra problems from other assignments so I can.. really know what I'm doing?


Sometimes, I just really think I'm funny. And yanno, "THAT'S FINE!" because I'm not really sure how many other people feel the same way, and SOMEONE'S gotta love me, right? And it's not normally when I'm thinking about saying something and I'm like "Man, I have to say something funny, because that's just who I am" because we all know I don't think before I talk. Hence why I think I'm funny. The things that come out of my mouth sometimes.. WOW do they sound stupid. And a lot of times, someone has to make fun of me for saying something before I actually find the funniness in it, but still. Also, when I write things, like all of these blog posts, and assignments where I'm free to talk like myself.. it's entertaining. I would copy and paste my assignment that I'm working on right now, but then it probably wouldn't be funny. But basically, it's just the same as my blog, so you get the idea. And I'm really good at making funny faces and looking like an idiot.

Anyways, I'm done tooting my own horn, haha. Enjoy my blog (:

P.S. I'm buying a membership to 24Hour Fitness tonight!! I'm EXTHITED!! (<-excited with a lisp)

Urban Dictionary

Hahahahaha.. go to urbandictionary.com and look up your name.. I guarantee mine is going to be funnier than yours!!

Time to expound!

First thing on the agenda, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS IS NOT GAY!!!!!!! (I thought he was.. hence this post) But no. I texted Cha Cha, and they told me that he's not.. So I'm very happy (:

Secondly, I've recently begun to realize how much my brain influences my life, and how much more mine does than any other normal human being. Okay, that sounds super retarded, and you're probably thinking "Wow, Shaylin.. I'm pretty sure your brain is nowhere near you when you're going about day-to-day things." Well, okay, you're really correct. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT I'M TRYING TO MAKE! What I'm trying to get across, is that I think I'm a less serious form of a hypochondriac. In high school, whenever a friend told me of a health problem (ie heart palpitations) I was convinced I had it, when I never did. And just recently, Sharsti told me that she was Lactose Intolerant, and then of course I thought I was the same way, bought pills, and I'm not. I'm just retarded. Now, I tell myself that I'm super picky with food.. but am I really? So, I've decided that I'm going to always think that I like whatever I'm eating, and tell myself that I'm not sick and I don't have health problems. So, let's hope it works (: Maybe I'll transform my whole life!!!

Third, Justin Bieber hahahaha. So, I'm not like a super fan, I just really like his music. A lot. I listen to his album probably 2 or 3 times through every day (: And one day, I was at walmart for something, and I just so happened to come across his calendar, so of course I bought it. So he's happily hanging in my room (: But just so you know, it's a joke. I bought the calendar as a joke, and every time I see it on my wall, I laugh. Happy things!!

3 Thoughts for now

I honestly wish I could just blog all day long! I feel like I have so many thoughts running through my head and I don't have enough patient people in my life to be talking 24/7.. So, here are some thoughts that I'll expound on when I have more time.. I just don't have enough time right now! AH!

1. Enrique Iglesias
2. Retraining my brain to thinking that I'm not picky
3. Justin Bieber

Hmm... that's not as many as I was thinking it was going to be.. Anyways, I'm going to go do homework, eat breakfast, then get to work. ADIOS.

Monday, January 31, 2011


Dude, tonight.. I'm super trippin balls. I'm not even sure what mood I'm in, but it's definitely weird..

And I highly doubt this is going to make sense to anyone except for me and my roommates (who I know won't read this)

I had an exciting new addition to my life, was super excited about it for about a day, and then found out that it really wasn't all that I talked it up to be. And then I noticed that something that's been in front of my face for a while, is a lot more than I ever realized, and I'm kinda sad that I did "x" because it could either strengthen or hurt "y". Hopefully strengthen.. But would it be awkward? Is this supposed to happen?

It's past my bedtime.

Thursday, January 27, 2011


Literally, today is thee best day ever! Last night, I went to bed at 11:30, which is VERY VERY good for us, seeing as though the night before, we didn't get in bed until 3:00am. So anyways, I woke up at 7:25 to get ready for work at 8. I brought a packet of Strawberry oatmeal, a piece of bread, and 1/2 cup of milk for my oatmeal, got started working and making my breakfast, and my attitude was amazing today!! I was just so super happy! And last night I asked my Mom if she would so kindly like to help me out with my plane ticket for when I go home next month, and after finding out that it would be about $196.00, she offered to pay $100!!!! YAY! I LOVE MY MOM! Then I got so excited about that at work, so I told my friend Josh, who then told me that he might be able to get me a "buddy pass" because apparently, February is the perfect time to fly! He then went and talked to his parents, who said that I could have the buddy pass, and it would only be $103 round trip to fly home!!!!! After professing my love to him and his parents for doing such a generous thing for me, I went back to work. I finished all my stuff by 3:25, left at 3:30, then got ready for school really quickly and headed to UVU. I got to my math class just a couple minutes after it started, was greeted by the two guys that I usually sit in-between (one of them is in my Ethics & Values class, the other is just cute:) and then cute boy offered me his Australian licorice, which tastes just like Fruit by the Foot (DELICIOUS) and then reviewed for my math test. And he kept offering me the candies, which I accepted each time, and then he told me that I can have as many as I wanted!! YES!! I LOVE when people offer me lots of candy!!! (Side note, I already love Math probably more than anyone should, so I'm already in a superb mood because a-I'm in math, b-I'm studying for a math test, and the fact that I'm sitting in between two super nice guys.. WHO WOULDN'T BE HAPPY!?!) As we're leaving the class, I said something to Ethics & Values boy, and then he asked what my name was, and then I found out his name is Danny, and then cute boy was walking right next to me, and I still didn't know his name, so I turned to him and asked what his name was (Ronny) and I told him my name and then we talked a little bit and said goodbye! So I'm completely happy from talking to them (because usually I just keep to myself at school, which I don't know why, because I love being friendly) and I get home and decide to file my taxes because I got my W2s today! So I'm filing, putting the information in, AND I FIND OUT THAT I'M GETTING $1440.00 BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which means that I can officially go to California for spring break with all the girls!!!! Let me just tell you, I'm in one of thee best moods I think I've ever been in!!! SOOO HAPPY!! PLUS, the day keeps getting even better!! At 7:00, our Relief Society is having a coupon "class" where we learn about couponing and saving money, and then we all get to go to Nickel City (It's an arcade place, where you use nickels for everything) and play Laser Tag, ALL OF WHICH OUR WARD IS PAYING FOR!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness. Do you agree with me that today is thee best day ever?!!?

This is my super ecstatic face!!!

The Heart of Life

There are so many things going through my mind today, so this post is probably going to be super all over the place.

-To start off my rambling, it's January 25th, 2011. Holy freak.. when did this happen!? I remember the beginning of 2010 thinking that it was so crazy that we were in a year where you could say "Twenty ten" instead of having to say "two thousand and nine", and I'm pretty sure that was just 2 seconds ago.. Welp, wrong on that one! THAT WAS A WHOLE FREAKING YEAR AGO! This past year, I fear, went by WAYYYYYYY to fast. Probably had thee best summer I've ever had in my life, got super close with my roommates, whom I love so much, passed the year mark with my job (that has never ever ever happened before), went to Mexico for the third time, and many many more things. I feel so much older than I am. Because of Carly and Holly, I think I'm 22.. I'm not. I'm still 20. And I'm still half a year away from even being 21. I'm young.

-January 25th has another significance. In exactly one month, Elder Jonathan Kaleo O' Kalani Kamae will have faithfully finished his 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It's weird to think that on August 16, 2007, Jonathan and I officially started our relationship as a couple, and with just a few hard times and a couple silly break-ups in the process, stayed best friends / boyfriend-girlfriend for a year and a half. And then all of a sudden, he's gone. No face-to-face conversations, no hanging out, no telephone calls.. Only emails and letters for 23 months. And in 31 days, it goes back to how it was 23 months ago. I know that the both of us have changed in so many ways, and it's impossible to know if things will work out between us in the end, and it's probably going to be one of the top 5 awkward moments in our relationship when he comes home, and the 894.58 miles that will be between us while he's at home are going to be quite inconvenient.. I'm getting my best friend back. Sure, I have other super good friends, but he is thee one person that I can tell everything to. Anything and everything. And I won't have to ask questions and have them go forgotten because they're in the middle of a rambling letter that he didn't have time to respond to. We're going to have double-sided conversations again. And for the first week, I won't have to look at pictures to see his face. I won't have to listen to a recording to remember the way he talks. I'm getting my best friend back (:

-The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is thee most amazing church on this earth. I know for a fact that without it, every single thing in my life would be completely different, and I'm going to assume that it wouldn't be a "good" different either. Joseph Smith did one of the most miraculous things, second to my Savior, to sacrifice all the he had to bring this church back to the earth so that we could all benefit from it. I can't even imagine how much faith and courage that must have taken, but I do know how much faith I have in him and how much I love him for doing it. For some reason I have a hard time expressing my love for the gospel, but just know that it is the number one thing in my life, and I am never going to change that.

-My Ethics & Values class got canceled today (: What a wonderful surprise that little piece of paper outside of the door was!

-I get to go help out in a 2nd grade class tomorrow from 9-11ish (: And then I have until 4:00 to do whatever I want, because I don't have to work!!

-I love sweats and slippers. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before on this blog, but if I had to wear one outfit for the rest of my life, it would definitely include sweats and slippers. I really don't think there's anything better. Also, I often wish I could wear guy pants and not look like a lesbian. That would probably also be super comfortable. But this world is just so stupidly judgemental. And, not going to lie, I'd probably convince myself I was a lesbian, and that would be super awkward and terrible.. So, no man pants. Unless it's just around the house, when I have a man to steal pants from (:

-I'm listening to John Mayer's Live in LA cd, with the christmas lights on in my room, and it is absolutely magical (:

I think that's all for now. Basically, I'm just really happy today!

Confession to the confession.

I didn't do my homework. I sat on Kaylee and Sean's couch with a blanket, without Franklin and read Twilight. But at least I was doing my laundry at the same time, right?! Which, by the way, I hadn't done since before we left for Mexico.. So over a month? And I did all that laundry in two loads. Thank goodness I haven't had much of a life lately and have just been wearing my work clothes!!


All I want to do right now is just sit on the couch, with Franklin and a blanket and read Twilight (for the third time), followed by the last three books.

But alas, I have a lot of homework to do, and I can't justify just sitting there reading a non-homework related book while my homework goes untouched. Maybe I can finish my homework tonight, and then sit and read all night tomorrow?!?

Wish me luck (: I'll do my best!

Marnie bought new boots.

And I was with her when she ordered them online. Which means I want to buy new boots. Dang her.

Look how hot hers are though!! She is getting the brown ones (:
