San Francisco, Salt Lake City, New York City, Chicago, or Boston.
All I want to do is have an excuse to live in one of these cities. Hint, Hint a job would be fantastic.
And have my own apartment, with my own furniture, and a puppy to snuggle/spoon with too.
Oh how amazing life would be...so can I be there already, please?
As part of my family's yearly trip here, obviously it included a day at Disneyland because it will probably be the last time they ever get in for free.
This is what I learned that day:
That every picture I pretty much look as though I was far too hot so I decided to not wear any clothes.
(view very top right Space Mountain photo. naked.)
That my brothers are 17 & 18 years old now and think about only one thing.
My brothers are now ridiculously taller than me
(how/when did this happen?)
I now know where my awkwardness comes from
(view third picture down from the right. dad being "awesome and amazing" and half asleep)
+Standing in line, I gently feel a little hand reach up my dress and graze my toosh.
oh hello little one, we just met. Should I be worried that this isn't the first time that this has happened?
+At the beach, getting tossed around and let's just say I had a Tara Reid moment and one of my little friends just happened to come out.
This was just awful than awkward. no one should have to see that.
+Someone challenged me to dance at work. Don't ever challenge me to do something because I WILL do it. So I got my dorky dance on and danced like a fool, turned around and a nice little audience of fellow cast-mates watching.
red face. red face. red face.
+Someone reaching for a hug and I awkwardly thought they were trying to give me a high-five. The end result was both awkward and embarrassing for us both.
+As you probably already know my business cards came and just physically holding them in my hand just remind me how close to educational freedom I am.
+Seeing my brothers' faces when we went to the Angels baseball game on Friday. They loved every second of it even if they'll never admit it.
+Younger brother is moving to Chicago to pitch for Aurora University's baseball team and I am so excited and proud.
Good job little bro!
Show them how a "Jacob-son gits 'er done"!
+The odd level of tiredness where everything is extremely funny and laughing until you cry.
+The "mom face" (the face that our mom, or any mom for that matter makes every time we're on any type of roller coaster that is equipped with a hidden camera.)
I secretly love my mom for it even if she gets embarrassed by it.
I know it's Too Cute Tuesday and I'm supposed to have some sort of picture up to show my expected cuteness for the day.
Well, that all went out the window when I decided to wear a vest.
It was one of those days where I thought I was being quite strategic with the pieces I put together.
Forcefully trying to be fashionable.
Hence no proof of this outfit.
vest + sundress = clearly not the best decision I've ever made.
But I'll leave you with this, a paper discovered by my Sister Wife Kat that must have been written over 2 years ago when Kat, Allie and myself all worked at Disneyland and we all shared the same hatred for the restaurant.
So we plotted to sabotage the place together.
We were just ever so clever enough to write it down.
Word for word interpretation.
TITLE: OUR PLOT TO SABOTAGE THE GROTTO
by The Triplets! (name give to us by other employees)
1 SWITCH THE SODA TUBES IN THE BACK CLOSET*
*if this is done then someone will try to fill a glass of coke and get lemonade. Also causing hours of cleaning out the tubes to set them back where they are supposed to be.
2 PUT SUGAR IN THE SALT SHAKERS
3 DON'T FULLY SCREW ON THE TOP OF THE PEPPER SHAKERS
4 HIDE/POSSIBLY THROW AWAY SODA MACHINE NOZZLES*
*ya know, where it allows for the soda comes out to fill your cup
5 MAKE ALL SILVERWARE ROLL-UPS WITH SPOONS RATHER THAN KNIVES AND FORKS (THROW REST OF LEFT OVER SILVER INTO THE LAKE)*
*every night, no one goes home until all the silverware is polished and rolled. so if they are done wrong, the openers feel the pinch.
6 UNPLUG SIDE REFRIGERATORS
7 SOAK OUTSIDE CHAIR CUSHIONS SO THEY ABSORB WATER OVER NIGHT*
*Means you sit, you could float. And it would take days to dry.
8 FILL ALL GLASS RACKS WITH EMPLOYEE CUPS, (DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE GLASS, HAVEN'T THOUGHT THAT FAR YET)
9 FILL TUBS OF ROLLED SILVERWARE HALFWAY WITH WATER
10 SEAL ALL CASH DROPPING BAGS
Although all of these could possibly do some damage to the location, obviously the only real damage what would be done afterwards would be my reputation that followed me to any other job I decided to apply to.
If you work in a restaurant, you speak my language and are probably laughing right now.
my name is lauren, some call me lo, i am 24 years of age, and i will soon be a college graduate. i wait tables right now and totally hate it even though others would argue it as the happiest place on earth. i dye my hair because i don't like my natural hair color. i am catholic. so that means i believe in god. i also believe that everything happens for a reason. i do believe in soulmates. i am extremely awkward at being sexy. i tend to tell the dumbest jokes even if i know that they are dumb. i am ticklish in 3 places. i love art and museums, because i know that everything can be beautiful. i love to dance. music is healing. i love camping and anything adventurous. i don't like being alone. i get sad. i love to talk. i will try anything once. you might think i'm embarrassing. i tell the best stories even if i forgot that i told you them already. i say inappropriate things. sometimes i do like to have a drink, socially. i want to have a family. cookies are the main food group of my daily diet. dessert is MY most important meal of the day. i make fun of my awkward looking body. i beat myself up about a lot of things. i believe in love. i laugh a lot at myself, and think i'm the funniest person even if no one agrees. i love to laugh until i cry. my heart is sometimes too open, but i think that is the best kind of heart to have. i wear my heart on my sleeve. i get upset if things don't go my way. and i'd like to believe that i have a very infectious personality, i guess you could say i think it can be beautiful one too.
if you are okay with all of this, then that's perfect.
