My adventure in becoming a [Good] Mormon

Archive for November, 2010

Your relationship advisor is now fully functioning

So, the usual person from FB that I regularly quote just quoted me as I gave her advice:

“There is something out there that will be the best for you. If this didn’t work, it wasn’t meant to because it wasn’t the best thing that is intended… for you. There will always be the best thing, no matter what. Think of how much better it’ll be if this didn’t work.”

It would appear the Cass who gives good advice is returning.

My hopeless romantic side is showing

I’ve decided I want to find someone and have something like all that stuff in those novels about revolutions.

Let me elaborate: Those couples in those fiction tales about revolutions that are running from the law, or they’re defying something yet they’re always together. They never leave one another, for anything.  That’s like…Uh…Bonnie & Clyde isn’t it? Something I never bothered to look up. Too far before me.

Yeah, I’m not gonna start a revolution. Maybe I am, it seems I’m inherently defiant on a few things. That’s beside the point, but I want to find someone who, for example, when walking in a grocery store, we bump something over, then run away pretending we didn’t do it, holding hands and giggling like little kids. That’s just an image I have in my head.

Or we’ll have light saber battles in toys r’ us and get kicked out.

This ideal person has to be willing to jump in puddles with me on our wedding night.

Yeah, I want to get married during a Summer thunderstorm. You aren’t going to know the date of my wedding until the weatherman predicts it.

I want them to spontaneously kiss me when we have arguments and tell me I should just hush up and stop being so stubborn.

And the ever present requirement: They have to come star gazing with me.

Super nintendo matches are a must.

We are the best coop team Halo has ever seen.

They gotta let me drag them out on hikes. They don’t have to like it, they just gotta come with. And climb things. And hike off the trail. And protect me from bears. And stand on cliffs and scream till our throats hurt.

Be the giver of really good hugs. What is the definition of a good hug? When I am grumpy, you give me one. When I get frustrated and try to squirm away, you don’t let me. No tickling and please only squash me on occasion, not every time.

Naturally good smelling. I’ve found a few people like that. Not saying who, they’ll think I’m creepy. There is no way to tell this except just let me sniff you. Most people smell good naturally though, I’ve found.

Riding roller coasters a million times is normal. Or any ride.

You are never too old for the strawberries, teacups or carousel.

Hold my hand on the drop of doom. I am actually quite scared of it.

Dance, even though you probably feel like a fool, I do too. It’s ok, it’s cute.

I’ve decided I have few to no physical requirements. I don’t want to be judged on that, so I won’t judge you by that.

I’m too Mormon for my own good. I just bit a chocolate, tasted rum, screamed ‘BLASPHEMY!!!’ and spat it out. Twas funny. Waste of chocolate though.

This was the product of staring at a wall listening to ‘Rainy day’ by Coldplay.

Me; Then and now

Then:

Now:

Oddly enough, the best pictures of myself that I could find via quick searching both include myself and Corey.

So, what has changed?

I joined the Church and all things related to that changed.

I skipped school for the first time and became a rebel (at least in Fable 3 LOL)

I dyed my hair different….

That’s about it?

Oh I guess I lost a little weight, but but that seems to fluctuate daily >.>…and I got a job.

I made more friends too.

I had nicer hair last year XD

rain boots, a bum and an accordion

Accordion =Love Lighting of video=Love…But the comment I made as watching it:

“Who wears rain boots with short shorts…Illogical…*further watching* OHMYGURSH!!PUT YOUR BUM BACK IN YOUR PANTS!!!”

Some days, I make myself  laugh very hard. Is a good thing methinks :D.

Teeheehee ^_^

Ok, that was officially the most awesome fireside I’ve ever been to.

Was it here I posted about my goal to make a new friend? Well, that was for a good friend, as in one who I just go and hang with. I did just make a new friend, at the fireside, and she is delightful.

I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. Sometimes, I forget how good it is to laugh so hard I nearly fall over.

New goal: Next week, I’m gonna go up and bear my testimony. It’s the last thing in my mind that is the stereotypical foundation for being a Mormon. I can’t outline them all, but there are certain things that define the basics of practicing Mormonism for me and that is pretty much the last one I gotta do, in my opinion…

This whole Sunday just lifted me out of my recently crappy mood. Kinda like how Sundays used to, when I was converting. They’re still awesome, but something was always underneath it all.

“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.”

I don’t know what it is about you. Maybe it’s the way nothing else matters when we’re talking, or how you make me smile more than anyone else has. It could be the way you say the right thing at the right time. But whatever it is, I just want you to know that it means everything to me.”

“love isn’t always going to be perfect. it’s not a fairytale or a storybook. and it doesn’t always come easy. love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. it’s a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. love is accepting all the complexities and simplicities. love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, and every second was worth it because you dideverything together.”

And this one especially means something to me: “Accept what you can’t change; change what you can. If you’re tired of your life,do something about it. Date more, date less, find a lover, get in a relationship, go snorkeling- stop waiting for life to happen.”

Maybe I will go snorkeling…Or something. I went scuba diving once. Men in wet suits disturb me 0.o….

This is from the usual source, but I’m only picking the ones I really like.

I am in way too good of a mood than I really have any right to be.

Actually, no. I have every right to be this happy. Lately, I’ve been too craptastic. I want happy Cass back. Here she is and she is staying now. Even if I have to chain her up.

Maybe I’ll go meditate. That kinda seals in the happiness. Like those ziploc freezer bags ‘seals in the freshness!!’

Wow, I am crazy tonight. I need someone to blabber on to about how everything is awesome.

A picture of something that means a lot to me

Did you know Jesus is on twitter?…Anywaaaays…

Not just God, but the Church, the people in the Church, basically everything related. (Isn’t that picture epic?) The whole deal has completely assimilated me, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. It’s overtaken everything, whatever isn’t good enough is booted or changed and I have hardly any spare time because I’m always trying to finish up something related to it.

I hardly even watch Star Trek anymore!
