Virginia is for lovers

Hello Blogging world!

I should be more consistent when it comes to posting but I’ve just been lazy lately. Plus there isn’t much going on that you don’t already know.

The girls dropping me off @ the airport

I moved out to Virginia two weeks ago and it’s been pretty chill. Not too much going on. It’s been a nice change of scenery and I’m excited for more new changes. Working w/ my sister has been nice. I’m doing the same thing I did two Christmas seasons ago, when I first came out to work w/ her. I’m a merchandiser for a two different companies working at three different military exchanges. They’re basically military malls. You have to be or be w/ a military I.D. holding person in order to get in and buy things. It’s cool because the prices are usually less than that of Wal-Mart and everywhere else, PLUS you don’t pay sales tax. Cool huh? J I basically represent a whole bunch of different companies and brands. Everything from electronics to perfumes, to outdoor merchandise and more. It may seem like I do a lot but really I only have so many hours a week between the two. My sister can give me about 8-11 hours a week and the other company can give me 7 or 8 hours a week. There’s a third company that I’m hoping to work for doing the same thing but getting 30 hours a week! That reminds me, I need to call and follow up w/ them.

I’m now in a family ward. The singles branch was dissolved a few weeks ago because there just wasn’t enough people to function properly. Everybody moved away or got married. It’s a good reason for it to be dissolved but still a little sad. It’s going to be interesting to be in a family ward again. It’s been so long since I was last in one. Usually the only time I go to a family ward is when I’m visiting home, or a friend. So I feel like I’ll only be there a few Sundays before I go back to my singles ward. But that’s kind of how I feel about Virginia, too. It’s like I’m only out here for a little while and then I’ll go back to Utah. Only, that’s not really how it is. I do miss Utah but change is good. Change helps us to grow. Change… changes everything.

Today’s song is one that is ALWAYS stuck in my head because I hear it so much on the radio. J But luckily it’s a song that I like. This one is the album version, so w/o Kanye West rapping. I like it better w/o the rap anyways. Personally, the rap part doesn’t make much sense for it to be on there. Usually it enhances the song but really this time it doesn’t. Maybe I’m just prejudiced toward Kanye. Maybe I’d feel differently if it were Luda instead? Maybe it’s really that the rap part doesn’t make much sense to be on there. Anyways, I really like Katy Perry. She’s so pretty and does her own thing. Good for her! I’m excited to see her next month in concert!! J Be strong, be happy, and find the joy in your life!

E.T.- Katy Perry

You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?

Your touch magnetizing
Feels like I am floating
Leaves my body glowing

They say, be afraid
You're not like the others
Futuristic lover
Different DNA
They don't understand you

You're from a whole 'nother world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, k-k-kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison

Take me, t-t-take me
Wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction

Boy, you're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural

You're so supersonic
Wanna feel your powers
Stun me with your lasers
Your kiss is cosmic
Every move is magic



This is transcendental
On another level
Boy, you're my lucky star

I wanna walk on your wave length
And be there when you vibrate
For you I'll risk it all



Boy, you're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural
