Back to School

Life takes some interesting turns. I remember when I graduated from High School thinking I had my life planned out. I would graduate from College in about 4 years and get married about a year after that... ok really I thought I'd be married pretty young.

I'm so glad that things don't work out sometimes. I am still in school and basically starting over. But I'm so excited about studying nutrition. My plan is to be a personal consultant one day to help people pick a diet that will help them get over their anxieties and feel better about themselves... I'm still a work in progress. I still have my panic attacks but I still believe that the food I put in my body has a huge impact.

And believe it or not I'm so glad I didn't marry young. I think back on the guy I was dating at 19.... Not active in the church or life... What kind of life would that have been. I mean seriously. As much as I don't like dating thats not all the single life has to offer. I was able to quit my job and start all over if I had a family I wouldn't have been able to or comfortable to take such risks.

I still have moments of wondering when my life is going to start looking up but then I remember it already is. Heavenly Father knows me far better than I know myself. My plan was below mediocre. His plan is making me a better and stronger person.

I suppose thats enough of my ramblings. Have a great week :)

To date or not to date?

Question.... When some one calls you Almost Sexy do you still go out with them? How about if they say you're like a mosquito bite they can't stop scratching?

I never thought I would ever have to face being described like this... I think guys need to learn how to use pick up lines and what would constitute as a pick up line.

Dating is entertaining. Without dating my life would be pretty monotonous. I'm struggle with the thought of should I date or should I not... With comments like these its a really tough decision.

Now you all know why I haven't settled down yet... With comments like these I just want to date forever!

I have decided a dating sabatcle would be nice for a while. Of course everytime I decide to do that I get bombarded with dates... Well here's hoping! ;)

hmmm....

I know I should be working on my Chemistry finaly but I find this to be more fun. I don't really have alot to update right now. I still have my challenges. I'm struggling with knowing which guy to choose, and if I should keep my car.

Right now I'm dating this guy that is completly amazing! He's in the army which is kind of what I worry about. I'm not sure if I'm strong enough for that kind of lifestyle. I do love to travel and see new places but I also love to be near family. Anyway I know he wants to be a little more serious but I'm not sure I'm ready for that. When it comes to love I am a chicken. I'm so scared of making a mistake. How will I really know when its right?

Lately I've been feeling more like its far more easy to stay single. At least then I'm the only one hurting. I just can't seem to figure this dang love thing out. I know that this probably won't get read but if someone has some insight or would like to share the feelings you had when you were single and searching I would appreciate it.

I know it seems that I go through life dwelling on the fact that I'm single. But I guess its the one place that I don't have much control. I just wish I knew.

Well I guess thats enough rambling for today.

Babysitter Anyone?

Ok here is the deal. I am going to be quitting my job in August so I can go back to school full time. In doing this I have decided to pick up some babysitting. I can do nights during the summer when school starts I can do some afternoons. If anyone has a need of a babysitter or knows of someone who needs a babysitter please let me know. I would appreciate it! :)

Help Wanted...


Hi its me again... I'm in the mood to get a makeover... a job makeover... Don't get me wrong I feel incredibly blessed to have the job that I have but I would love to start working in a dental office. I would love to wear scrubs everyday and leave my nice clothes for nice occasions...

How do I do this? Where do I start?

I know I change my life around all the time. I switch my major, my boyfriend, my location almost on a weekly basis. Well at least it feels that way sometimes. My co workers have started to wonder if I have men on reserve so I can break up with them when I'm bored. Rest assured I hate breaking up... So believe me I don't have men on reserve for break up entertainment...

My location... well I love my new apartment and I love having a roommate so I think that is now a stability in my life! yay!!

My major... I love my classes or class.. I'm taking chemistry this semester and its hard but really interesting. I love reading the back of my toothpaste tube and actually know some of the elements involved to make my breathe minty fresh! Yes I know I'm a nerd! oh well... Now if I could switch my job so it relates to what I love to learn about that would be great.

Ok I know thats a "The grass is greener on the otherside" attitude. But if any of you know a dentist that is hiring... Nikki and I would appreciate hearing about it!!

Lean On Me

Dear Family,

Nikki and I were driving back from sorority and she was playing music from Trents IPod.(yes she has taken ownership of Trents IPod) Anyway the song "Lean On Me" came on. She asked if this was the song we used to sing as a family when we would get together. It brought back so many memories like recording songs in Grandma and Grandpa's condo, and singing in the ward talent show in West Valley. And how can I forget singing on Grandma Hand's couch... of course it wasn't lean on me but seriously that was one of my favorite memores. (for those of you who don't remember I believe we were singing If I could Walk 5000 miles... I dont' know the name of the song.)

So we started singing to the music knowing all the words of course. I Just wanted to thank all of you for being there for me. Sometimes I exclude myself because I don't feel like I fit in. Since I'm not married and I don't have kids. And sometimes I make the excuse that you guys exclude me. I just first of all want to apologize for that. The truth is I've been a little envious of all of your lives. I look up to every single one of you. I'm so grateful to have you in my life. And thank you for all the support and love that you have given to me. My life definantly hasn't turned out the way I planned it to but I'm grateful for all that I've learned so far. I hope that one day when I have a family of my own I'll be able to remember the things that each of you have written. I really do look up to you. You are all so amazing!

Love ya lots!

Crystal

Celebration

Ok so its been a little while. Most of you may be aware that I am once again back in school. I'm taking chemistry this semester and get this... I like it! I know weird right? Its still stressful and challenging but I like learning about different elements and seeing the effects they have on each other when they combine. Anyway I found the geek in me for sure! ;)

So anyway lets see what else is new with me.... nothing I guess... wow sorry I was hoping for a more exciting post but I think thats all I've got.

Thanks... Lesson learned... I hope

Yesterday I got pulled over for speeding... again... the second time in the last month. I tried crying to get out of the ticket but for some reason that never seems to work for me. Of course I'm fully aware that I deserve it but that doesn't mean I want it.

anyway I was a little hysterical last night. Now that I've slept I realize I caused myself to learn this lesson the hard way. I could have gone the speed limit and avoided the ticket. I could also have gotten into a bad accident where me or someone else was hurt or killed. Today I wish to thank all the police officers out there who do their job. Its not easy. NO one wants to see you... everyone avoids you and yet there you are to protect them no matter what.

I wish I could go back to last night and thank that police officer for saving me from a harder lesson but unfortunately this is the best I can do. So thanks!

Happily Ever After

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who fell in love with a handsome prince. They met one day in the local village. The princess was taking her usual walk to get her endorphins going and the Prince was hungry and looking for a place to eat in the village... castle food can be so tiring. The princess was rounding the corner headed toward the forest when she bumped into the prince. He looked into her eyes and couldn't believe he was staring at the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He new immediately she was the girl of his dreams. They began talking the princess wondered how they had never met before. She would remember those piercing blue eyes. And a smile that could brighten any room.


From that day on they never left each others side. Life couldn't get any better than this. One day the prince took the princess on a walk to their corner where they met. He got down on one knee and said "will you make me the luckiest man in the world? Will you be my wife?" He told her he would love her forever and they would live happily ever after. And that is what they did. They lived happily ever after!

I realize I'm not living in a fairytale... nor am I any sort of princess... Me graceful... yeah right... I'm not expecting perfect.

I'm not expecting some guy in a suit of arms to come riding up to me in white stallion to tell me I'm the girl of his dreams as he rides me off into the sunset... although that does sound nice... I'm pretty sure if that happened I would be laughing at him.

I want someone who loves me. Someone I can call my best friend. I want someone I can go to church with. Someone who won't leave me feeling lonely. I want a man with a good smile and kind eyes. I want a man who can take a joke. I want a man who can laugh.

One day I'll find that kind of man. One day he'll take me in his arms and tell me that he loves me. One day... today is not that day unfortunately but with a list like that its gonna take time! So perhaps tomorrow will be the day or maybe the next day... someday! :)

Funny how things work out...

Its been a while since I've been on this thing... I guess I've been a bit busy. My last blog showed just how frustrated I was. As most of you have seen that has changed quite a bit.

In november I decided to explore all of my dating options. So I joined LDS Singles. I was already on EHarmony... Anyway that increased my social life by like 100% I was averaging about 3 dates a week... it was great... and I got some really good awkward dating stories out of it.

However funny enough the guy I'm dating now I met on trax... Now before you go and think that I'm crazy let me explain. We were both waiting for the train in freezing weather so naturally we start talking about the weather. This is where the conversation went all the way into work:
Nick: Where are you from?
Me: Texas
Nick: What Part?
Me: Dallas
Nick: What part?
Me: Richardson
Nick: What part?
Me: By Plano?
Nick: I used to live by Berkner High School.
Me: Wow my siblings went there.
Nick: I wonder if we knew the same people... Did you know an Ann Marie Goodrum?
Me: She was in my ward growing up!
Nick: She was in my ward too... I was in the Garland 3rd Ward.
Me: NO WAY!!! I was in the Garland 3rd Ward.
Nick: Wait! Whats your name?
Me: Crystal Crowther
Nick: I'm Nick Rupp!
Me: Oh my heck you have got to be kidding me!

So for those of you who don't know... Nick and I went to pre-school together. I went to all of his birthday parties at chucky cheese up until he moved when he was 11. His dad was our home teacher for 3 years... Oh and just to add to all of this he actually works at Zions bank which is literally just down the street from where I work...

I mean seriously does this really happen to anyone??? Anyway we are now dating... taking it slow of course so we can get to know each other. Even though it feels like we've been dating for months we officially started dating December 23. He is seriously the cutest guy in the world... but if you talk to him he prefers to be called studley!!!

Anyway just thought I'd share my random story!!! ;)
