i read this hilarious paper from one of my classmates today about being a confused boy surrounded by menstruating women. i laughed out loud more than once and i ended it up reading it to my roommates. it's funny to see the guy's point of view. especially when he is from your creative writing class so he doesn't hold back by anymeans.
i have this awful cough. i had a cold too, but i'm pretty much cured from that, the dang cough won't stop though.
Landon. he is amazing. i love it when he gets sleepy and his words are slurred together and he has this sleepy smile that melts my heart. i like to tuck him in and watch him get all snuggly and say funny things he wouldn't say if he was 100% conscious.
i'm watching my roommates right now doing their homework. actually, doing shelise's homework. ness doesn't even have school, she just took upon herself the decorating of shelise's poster display while shelise writes a paper for her other class.
the new guy in glee is harry potter from a very potter musical. haven't heard of it? look it up on youtube and be sure you have some time, because the whole thing is a couple hours long. anyway, he rocks. i get excited every time i see him in glee.
annnnnnd. i love Landon.
annnnnnd. i know that you're reading this Landon, and laughing to yourself about how "cute" i am. and i want to resent you for that, but i can't. because you just end up making those puppy dog eyes and i can't refuse it.

i like piano music. i could listen to it all day and night and i love it when my roommate nancy practices. i sit on my lovesac and revel at her amazing talent.
i also like Landon. i like going to church with him and letting him tickle my arm with a pen only to find the entire palm of my hand tattooed in green ink. i like how he is a good sport when his roommate points out his long hair to everyone in the ward during his talk. i like watching the office with him and i like...just being with him. correction: i love being with him. i love how he lets me use his printing credit at the school because i don't have enough money to buy my own. i love how he lets me use his truck because poor joanna is in the shop. i love how he buys me a lamp so i can read at night without disturbing my roommate. i love how he tells me everything he loves about me and i get all bashful. i love how bowling is the only thing he really gets upset at in front of me. i love how i love beating him in anything i can except for bowling. i love how he managed to convert me to being a byu fan when i really had no preference before.
i love Landon.

sometimes you don't get a text from someone you wanted. and it sucks. and sometimes you feel like all of the people you get advice and love and friendship from are all off in different countries and you're alone. and it sucks.
sometimes your feet are so cold, it causes pain to the rest of your body. and it sucks. and sometimes you just really, really feel like you need a hug to blind you from the pain you feel from your daily mistakes. and it sucks.
but every time, there is someone there for you. someone to drive you to the repair shop and sit in traffic with. or someone to complain about "how far away argentina is" with. or a good pair of socks. and when you're with those people, the sucking seems less...lonely. i guess it's true, that misery loves company. but could it possibly be that sometimes, the company makes it less miserable? i think so.
and sometimes, i feel like there should be little asians sleeping in my dresser. and frankly, that frightens me.

we were sitting at VOP (my old apartment complex) with girls that i am not that fond of (immature and rather annoying) watching the 6th sense. Landon was sitting inbetween jj and me leaned forward eating his pizza and drinking his mt. dew. we [Landon, jj and me] couldn't hear the movie because everyone was talking so loud and yet we stared at the screen. jj monotone-ly said/sang, "poi-son" and i looked over and him and he looked at me and i sang with a little more melody,"you're poison running through my veins" and he started to move his body slightly to an imaginary beat, "you're Poi-sonnn!" and together, pointing at each smiling , "I can't break these cha-ins!! POI-SON!" jj and i were so delighted with each other and he asked trivially with hope, "double points if you know who sings it!" with a tone as if he asked me what 1+1 was i said, "alice cooper!" jj slapped Landon on the back and said, "dude, you hold onto this one!! she is a keeper!" this was the first time jj had vocally approved of our relationship.
i've got my old friend back.

i have an annoyance to get off my chest. the manager at my apartment complex. she thinks she is the shiz. she's not. jessica (jessthica is how we say her name. mockingly. refer to this video and replace the name jackie with jessica and you will get it.) we have a UVU banner hanging from the balcony of our apartment right? it doesn't look tacky, it just shows that we have school pride you know? well, jessica (instert tone) left us a note on our door saying, "please take down the uvu flag."and on the paper it said we had 48 hours to take it down before they would dispose of it and charge our account $25. i guess blogging about this won't quite show how she wrote it, but there was a tone in her handwriting that screamed hate. we almost didn't move into this complex because of her attitude toward us. she was absolutely awful to my roommates and me while we were signing our contracts. we now want to hang a flag off our balcony that says, "Hail Jessica!" the flag has been taken down, but it is not in our dining room window just plain as day, but there isn't anything she can do about it because it is inside. take that.

ON THIS PLANET

so props to in-n-out.
it's been decided that whenever we have a crappy day at work (my friend kim and i) we are going to go to in-n-out for lunch because the employees always make us feel better about ourselves.
so lately, not a lot of excitment has pertruded my life. it's like, i'm stuck in a rut of cliches that's turning more into
i want to just disappear for a day or two and write. i've got a couple epic poems i need to write. and because of this reason, i cannot wait for school to start so i can start taking my poetry class. i love poetry.
i shared a haiku i wrote back in january with some of my co-workers because they were dissing the haiku. how dare they. i turned around in my chair, legs crossed, arms resting lazily on my chair and said:
blonde hair in a messy braid.
brushing her white teeth,
blood leaks from and open cut.
and i turned my chair back around and got back to work. i needn't defend the name of haikus after that.

i spent my birthday with some of the most important people in my life, at one of my most favorite places on earth.
boating for 4 days does the soul good. even better when you're with people like detro, cam, brenden and Landon. excitement and fun are serious understatments. especially when being confronted by strange boys while naked. you really want to know the story behind that now don't you?
this last week, my sound track has been ke$ha. who knew... it just flows so well with the waves and the beat of the boat. plus, i like Landon's beard too.

i love my older brother.
i love my mom and dad.
i love my little sister.
i love learning.
i love loving.
also, robert pattinson isn't that bad of an actor. in fact,
i really loved him in "remember me."

days where you wish, "man, if tomorrow is going to be like this, i'd rather not be there."
days where crying is the only logical thing that will happen to you.
where great plans fall through and all your hard work
days where your pillow and blankets are your only comfort.
days where the only person who can make you smile,
days where you're out of gas
and out of tampons.
that was my day yesterday.
i tried to skip today, and if it was up to me this morning, i would have skipped tomorrow too.
and guess what,
thanks j.k. rowling.

first day out on the lake today. i thought my base tan that was really quite nice would keep me from burning. nope. but it's a good burn. cleared the wake today. a couple times. lots of tubing. sun was hot, water was refreshing, company was good.
got back to orem, somewhat exhausted. boating really takes it out of ya, especially after being exposed to more sun that intended, and i was greeted with a date. three game of laser tag and another game of bowling. i love being with Landon. he makes me happier than anyone and to be honest, he is the only person on this earth who could keep me out doing stuff in the state i was in. and now it hurts to move. but it's great. today was good.
also, happy birthday Dani.

tonight, we're all heading down to the manti pageant, stoked to say the least. Landon decided to bail because he is going to ride his motorcycle. don't worry though, i was a good girl friend and supported his "me" without the slightest bitterness or a guilt trip. not that i usually do, i'm just sayin... i behaved when he told me.
last night, he and i went for a drive. no need to buy anything, we just wanted to drive and listen to music. it was so delightful. he took me to the edge of utah lake just behind the provo airport right at sunset. we sat in silence, my head on his chest listening to this song. the bugs outside swirled in the wind and my mouth watered as the clouds turned from white, to light orange, to orange, to pink, to red, then to a lavender. Landon smelled like heaven and for all i knew at that moment, i was there.

conference and firesides are great, i love the insight i receive from them
and what i learn in general,
but there is something so different about a spiritual musical experience.
music can reach something in my soul that words never will be able to.
he played for me what my spirit needed to feel tonight.
questions were answered tonight through sweet melodies.
thank you michael, you helped a lot of people tonight.
and on a seperate note, Landon is taking me to Backstreet Boys!! :) yay! i love him.

don't let it destroy you, i know it hurts, but you're still the one who has the upper hand on this. you're winning, i know it doesn't look like it from some perspectives, but you are.
and just remember, whether switzerland decides to take it's head out of it's buttless butt or not,
you've got it going on, with your P90X and your awesomess, you can walk on water, you can fly.

man of Panda
you know me,
you sure know i'm going to get the shrimp.
honey and almonds
mini heart attacks and heaven deep fried all in one
and still, you offer me a sample.
service with a smile,
sharing is caring,
simple acts of love.
we're strangers, and still
your swollen sides
share similarities of a friend.
thank you for spoiling me
i'll take all the shrimp you've got to give.
to calvin and hobbes:
holy crap! where have you been all my life?

we're complete opposites in a lot of ways, and yet there couldn't be a pair better friends than us. we balance each other out and help each other think rationally when the other isn't. you taught me how to appreciate hard work when it comes to art and school. you've shown me what true passion means. you're not that friend who tries to change my opinion of what i feel. you don't judge me and you sincerely try to look at things from my point of view when you don't understand. you've taught me how to cry. (that's a good thing) you've taught me the meaning of faith. you've shown me love and friendship that i will never be able to thank you for. you've given me advice that may never have surfaced on it's own. you've been spiteful with me, you've been obsessed along with me, you've been honest with me, but most of all, you've been with me.

last night was absolutely spectacular. i'm tempted to make so many puns about being gaga for gaga, but then i'm no better than the coco puffs bird who is hopped up one who knows what. but, AH-AH! i loved the entire thing. i even teared up there at the end. if you haven't seen it, download it, watch it on hulu, DO SOMETHING! it's inspiring i tell you. and i just downloaded the whole album. yay!!
Landon will be jealous.

and that will be my summer schedule.

on another, less inspiring and yet almost as awesome note, i got a job! yay! i know i've enjoyed my unemployment but it's time to start bringing in some money. or as Landon said when i told him the good news, "finally! it's about time you started pulling your weight in this relationship." love that kid. this was just after he found the brand new volcom hat i bought him and the crayon drawing of him and me holding hands with a heart in between us. pulling my weight my butt. :) and now he has a "whitney loves Landon" shrine in his room where he has taped up the poem i wrote him and the picture i drew. so now any remotely cute or sentimental thing i give him that is capable of being supported by scotch tape will now be on his wall. flattering.

Yesterday, i was skimming through my pictures on facebook and came across a masquerade i attended last october. i showed my new roommate (who was enjoying cottage cheese) and told her how much i loved that dress i was wearing. she satisfied me with her oohs and ahhs and i told her i had it in the closet. and with that i ran to the closet, stripped down and threw it on. we then spent the next two hours waxing her legs.
in the middle of the wax, my Landon came home. i ran over there after a few more strips and jumped on his bed in my giant dress just as he had fallen asleep. right when he opened his eyes a huge smile spread across his face when he saw what i was wearing. he gushed over my beauty and demanded that i wear the dress with him to dinner after his nap. and that i did. Landon took me to tucanos and he let me tell everyone that i was participating in the miss orem pageant and tonight was one of our final rehearsals. Landon held in a burst of laughter when each server told us one of their co-workers was in the same pageant. the entire night i was praying she wasn't there. luckily she wasn't, she was probably at the same rehearsal i was supposed to be at. it was a fantastic night, great food and the most handsome boy you could ever imagine held my hand the whole time. my life is awesome.

"two months after march 12, 2010"
two months of staring into your eyes and still getting lost,
of zombies and the volcom stone.
two months of stutters and butterflies and timeless tickle fights.
and guess what babe,
i love you more.
only two moths and I’m addicted to glee, addicted to ripsticks,
and to mafia wars.
you know my world was turned the moment
you asked me to be your girl.
so let’s face it, baby, it’s really you I’m addicted to.
and that is how i feel. now, i'm going to go shower and primp for my breakfast date. wish me luck with cooking the eggs over easy.

unEmployment rocks. however, in my blissful nothingness, i was still missing my boy.
so what did i do to hide from the heat stroke? i watched 16 and pregnant on mtv. stupid disfunctional relationships and preggo teenage girls. is it really as bad as it looks? or do you think that maybe, mtv makes it a little more dramatic?
and then i tried to trick the people at sprint into giving me a new phone. i'll be honest. i flat out lied in so many ways, and i still left the store with the same phone. a waste of an hour and a half.
only 33 more minutes til Landon gets home.

"One day I'm going to have my own brand of peanut butter and I'm going to call it Nature's Poo."
and sometimes i think this summer is going to be really hard with that kid getting home at 7 and going to bed at 10 o'clock every night. so today, i raise my glass to the rain. the rain that rained out his construction site so he got spend the day with me. thank you, rain. and now, i'm in bed. in bed watching wizards of waverly place. in bed watching wizards of waverly place while wearing Landon's sweater he forgot to get back from me. in bed watching wizards of waverly place while wearing Landon's sweater he forgot to get back from me and enjoying the faint smell of him. love you Landon. xo.

This is my proclamation to the world:
I am in love with a boy who is:
A dirt bike rider
Good with my family and his
Has enormous pecks
A cool guy
My other half.
So now I say to every guy in my past,
