Home away from home

This is my BYU family. I love them. As you can see we are a classy bunch of people. I have hot friends, male and female. Be jealous I'm not sure I could have survived this past year with out these kiddos. Like family sometimes they drive me crazy and you just want to slap them sometimes, but you always love them!!! So since I won't be living with the same people next year, I have decided to write a little something nice about all of them! And so no ones feelings get hurt, I will go alphabetically, girls first then boys, since I lived with these chicas.
This is us in a nutshell.

Brittney- This is my second year
living with her, and I was a little skeptical, but I shouldn't have been because she is great. She has to have one of the biggest heart
s of anyone in the entire world. Every time I was in the hospital she came, midnight, middle of class, or during church she was there. She lives off pasta and running a bajillion miles every morning (ew). Her artwork along with robins hung in our living room, while frequent guests oogled over it. She can fall asleep ANY WHERE, people can be screaming at the top of their lungs while she is out like a log. She is a very hard worker, and thus there were times
that we didn't get to her much, so life just wasn't always the same.

Helen- This girl seriously has some hearing problems, she NEVER EVER woke up to the 50 alarms she set in the morning, but lucky me, I did so I had to wake her up. She soon got used to my voice that she didn't even wake up to that towards the end. Helen can pop lock and drop it like no other. I'm pretty sure she only gets about 30 h
ours of sleep a week. Her family also has DELICIOUS restaurants, that she often brought left overs from.

Madisen- I have known her the longest, and so we decided to li
ve together. She was a busy bee working and educating herself, so the joke was that she was paying rent for no reason, since she was never home. Like Brittney she liked to run in the morning and exercise. She pretty much lives off of soup and cereal, heal
thy diet I know.

Robin- Robin lived off burritos and painting. It was not an uncommon sight to see her doing one or the other, or both. She is an amazing artist!!! I l
oved m
aking fun of her squeaky bed upstairs :) She always has good advice to share! She was always trying to lose weight, which we could never understand because she really has no weight to lose.

Shaylee - OH man, have we had some good times. Together we are unstoppable, we rap, we dance, we laugh, we hoodrat, the list goes on. We w
ould stay up late talking and laughing. She has a classic super obnoxious face that only certain people are privileged to see, it makes me laugh every time. I LOVE THIS GIRL. Teaching her basic cooking skills was always a hoot.

Anjelica- The reason she is not at the top since
her name does start with an A, is that she didn't live in my house, she was next door, but I do consider her family. When these kids drove me insane she was always there to hit up the movies, grab some dinner, shop, you name it we did it. I am living with her in the fall, which shall be a blast. We can laugh all day. My plan for her this upcoming school year is to cure her hypochondria :)

Boys turn.
Alex (and Kylee) - The reason these two are one are because they are the cutest greatest couple in the world, and they will be one in less than 2 m
onths!! YAY Anyways they were always there to cook and bake, Alex always had a gun to fight off the bad guys. Basically every male and female couple should striv
e to be as adorable as them.

Brad - He isn't posted in the picture, but he was still there a lot. It took him a while to become a part of our group because of other priorities. But he finally got his priorities straight and we love him. He only really eats pasta. He likes to mountain bike, and plays ultimate frisbee. Also he is a pretty bomb volleyball pla
yer. I played Brad in pool once, I didn't even get a turn he made everything his first turn.

Caleb- Ladies stop drooling over him, he's not that great!! ;) Someone's got put him in check. Caleb is an awesome guy. He was always that friend to tell me how great I looked, which I appreciate. He is rather cheap though. For example, he practically shattered his thumb and refused to go to the ER because it was expensive, so he is stuck with a retarded thumb. It was not uncommon for me or Shaylee to be asleep and have him storm in the house and be loud enough to wake us up. I'm pretty sure he does not have an inside voice.

Colby- Basically the greatest guy in the entire world. I love him. He is sooo sweet. One of my favorite memories is we were driving home from IHOP at like 2 am and he put on Frank Sinatra and told us that this will be played at his wedding. I am going to miss him so much while he is on his mission, but he will be the greatest!! He always looks like a stud, (ladies we will have a waiting list for when he returns).

Cuyler- I always knew when he was over because of his laugh. He always thought he was a fatty- which is not true, but fun for entertainment. I think his signature phrase was "Ok time out" he uses it quite frequently. Another is one of his pet names for Robin "squishy" in a teeth clenched type of voice, besides this name could not be anymore far reaching since she is soo thin.

Darin- I have known him forever. Since I was like 9. He came into the picture late, but has become a dear friend. Although Daring if you are reading this you owe me 20 dollas still. Him and Jeremy are like BFF. He thinks he is quite the ladies man. No comment. For some reason he always sways his bottom half.

Gavin- So many great things to say about him. Sweetest guy I have ever met. Took me to see Tangled, and brought me flowers when I had Shingles. I know every girl reading this is probably OMG I want him, he is a babe- but sorry the answer is no. He is your average Outdoorsman, hiking fishing shooting, you name he probably loves it. He became our handy man for awhile. The three months he was gone was rather sad.

Jeremy- Also came into the picture a little late because he was on a mission. We ended being really good friends. I think the moment I knew we were good friends was when we were watching TV and he said I'm going to fart, expecting a little fart he farted so loud I was like, the people next door probably heard that. It was rather entertaining. He loves baseball so much and can spike a volleyball like no other.

Nate- Many of my friends are probably like we didnt hang out with a Nate, how bout Bond?? There we go. Also came a little late, but honestly the nicest guys ever. He was always good for a laugh and never retaliated, just kinda shook his head and chuckled. He like Caleb is also fairly cheap. Which isn't always a good thing when we wanna go out to eat, the boys usually split a salad, waiters are often baffled.

Philip- Sometimes I felt like his relationship therapist. Lets face it, he needed my help alot, and probably would not have survived with out it. He was always good for a laugh. He likes to make inappropriate jokes, and he thinks he is the funniest person ever, sorry but I already hold that title :) He wants to have muscles so big that his forearms just dangle from these huge biceps (ew)

Needless to say I love all of these people. Should you be lucky enough to meet them, stop and chat because I can guarantee they will change your life!!!

Sorry if I hang out with you and you didn't get to be considered family, I guess you'll just have to make the effort next year!!
