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.

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 (:

Oh, Shaylin..

I did quite the stupid thing today. I took a nap, and then I couldn't fall asleep. Hence why it's 2:49am and I'm still awake. Which really sucks, because Tuesdays (tomorrow) are my busiest days! I have school from 8:30am-9:20am, work from 10:30am-3:30pm, school/institute from 4:00pm-8:30pm. Then I get to come home and do homework. YIPEE! But for reals. I have to wake up in 5 hours. :P

But, at least I was productive! In my Ethics and Values class, we have to read a bunch of essays and then write summaries on them. Now, if you know me and my homework habits, I've never ever been good at writing OR summarizing, so this class is a little bit challenging. So, since I read the essay earlier, I wrote my summary! And this time, it only took me like 45 minutes! I'm pretty proud of myself (: Maybe by the end of this semester, I'll be able to write a summary in 15 minutes! Or 10! Or maybe I'm getting wayyyy to ahead of myself. Haha, anyways, I think I'll be able to fall asleep now. And I'm sleeping on the couch tonight so I can actually wake up in the morning.

Day 30. I FINISHED!!!!!!!

Day 30 - Who are you?

I am Shaylin Dewey. I am a sister, a daughter, a friend. (I feel like I'm writing one of those poems that we had to write back in Jr. High haha) I am way too impulsive. I am very opinionated on music. I am happy. I am in love with candy. I am incredibly full of laughter. I am excited for this year. I am obsessed with shoes. I am whimsical. I am incapable of going to bed before 2 in my current living situation. I am too shy when I first meet people. I am trying to be more positive. I am very emotional. I am spunky. I am spontaneous. I am easily injured. I am loving. I am me (:

Day 29.

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile.

I miss the old Washington days.. Back in High School when I didn't have much to worry about, and my car would get written on all the time and my house would get toilet papered like it a requirement. Anyways, this is just one of the random drawings that happened to make it on my car (: I should have taken a picture of when I was "Just Married" or when I had oreos all over my car.

Day 28.

Day 28 - A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?

January 14, 2010 (Jonathan's birthday)

January 13, 2011

Honestly, last year feels like 2 seconds ago. I really don't remember, or can't think of how I've changed. Other than in the material ways .. Last year this time, I was living in apartment 307 and now I'm in 209. I was waiting a year for Jon to come home, and now I only have 39 days.. I'm still working at Pizza Pie Cafe (which is thee longest I've ever had a job for!!) I've probably grown spiritually? But not much, which is terrible haha. Well, overall we can tell that I'm quite pathetic. So, that should be all for now.

Day 27.

Day 27 - A picture of something your afraid of.

Most definitely, I'm super afraid of the dark. And I think it's genetic? Cause my Mom and Kaylee are both deathly afraid of it too. Scary stuff out there!! I avoid situations when I have to be alone in the dark.. If I'm with someone else, it's not as bad, but still not ideal. I'm a fan of bright things (:

Day 26.

Day 26 - A picture of something that means alot to you.

This was the first thing that came to mind, and I'm so glad they did. I LOVE the scriptures!! They contain so many interesting stories, and it's our history, and it helps with SOOO many problems that I have in my life!! Whenever I feel like poop, I pick up my scriptures and just start reading. Reason number BEST for reading them: It brings you closer to the Lord. WHO DOESN'T WANT THAT?!?! I wish I could properly express my love for them, but my only suggestion for you to understand how I feel about the scriptures is just pick them up and start reading. Hopefully after a little of reading, you'll agree with me too (:

Day 25.

Day 25 - Another picture of yourself and a family member.

This is my favorite picture of these family members (: If only the rest of them had been there, this would be even more epic!! Nothing like a friendly little game of croquet to have some quality family time!

Day 24.

Day 24 - A picture of yourself and a family member.

She is my little "dude". She's growing up so fast, she wears make up, she has a cell phone, she is thee most innocent person I've ever met. I seriously love her. And I'm so excited every time I go home to play with her!! I do feel really bad though, because in Mexico she wanted to play tennis, and I just wanted to chill cause it was my last day. But Jace, I promise I'll make it up to you!! And I miss her like crazy! I think about her all the time, and I just wish she was older so that she could move in with me. I desperately want her to move in with me. I know we'd have so much fun!!! And I'm going home around the 25th of February when Jon comes home, but all the time that I'm not with him, I know for freaking sure that I'll be with my most favorite little sister in the entire world!! I love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh, I miss her. I need her here. Ma, can you fly her out here please?!

Day 23.

Day 23 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

Definitely, for shizzle dizzle, this girl (:

I love her. I haven't always loved her, but I definitely love her now (: I now have to share her with her wonderful husband Sean, which I'm fine with. Anyways, we have so much amazingly fun times, I just love the crap out of her (: Well, not literally. I actually hate that part of her. She's quite amazing! I would encourage you to get to know her!
