Theres a first time for everything

This week i seriously did so many things for the first time. I got a UTAH, did laundry by myself, rode in a convertible BMW, went on my first date in Utah, etc. So anyway the week started off the same as last week, looking for a job. Well Monday everyone was off for labor day so we got to sleep in and play. Heather and I headed off to Wal Mart with Winnie and we decided that we were gonna paint our apartment.  We picked out brown light blue and dark blue and even did one wall with polka dots. Its very cute. Then we had our first FHE with our new family! It was in the apartment right next to ours, and since it was a holiday, barely anyone came but we had a lesson and then our cute new FHE mom had coldstone ice cream for us. Perfection. So the week goes on and we meet some cool new people from our ward and i continue to look for a job. So Wednesday comes a long and I go to the Sizzler to apply for a job and they ask if i can do an interview right on the spot. I instantly loved the manager, like lovedddd him. He was so nice and joked around with me which made it not awkward at all. After the interview I knew I got the job which sounds super cocky but oh well. Surprise Surprise the next day I got a phone call saying I got the job. Sweet. The next day I was on Facebook talking to my best friend Tommys cousin Alex. Alex also lives in Raintree like I do and just got back from visiting Maryland for the weekend, and took me on my first date in Utah!

                 "Tricia Gadberry spoke quite highly of you, so I have to see if its all true :)"

So he then tells me that the date is a double date with his brother and he just kinda said so my brother and I both wanna have dates for tomorrows recital, would you wanna go? And he tells me all about it and then I'm like who am I going or your brother? "Me! hahahaha" oh sorry I didnt know...So I was just complaining about not being asked on any dates yet when perfect I got asked. And at the same exact time I was being asked that I was talking to my friend Jack and he was asking me what my plans were for that time and I told him that I actually had a date and Jack says

 "oh man i guess he beat me to it..." and then he goes "welp I guess ill have to ask you another time, that is if you dont really like this guy."

And i informed Jack that I hope he does ask me. Let me tell you a little about Jack, he is amazing. When I saw Jack I instantly thought he was like the coolest guy by the way he dressed and carried himself. Theres just something about him, he kind of reminds me of an indie, neon colored wearing kid? If Jack sees this, he will tell me thats not at all what he was going for but sorry Jack thats the best way for me to explain it. I seriously love Jack. But back to the date, so Alex picked me up at my door at exactly 5. We went to a piano recital and I love piano, my mom plays and I've always loved to listen to her play. Anyway after Alex took me out for ice cream at this subzero place and it was pretty good. Alex was such a gentleman about it the whole time, unlocking my door and then opening it and closing it for me, it was so nice. I thought he was an awesome date!

 Then later that night, after the date my room mates and I got invited to play Nert's with two boys from our ward who love to invite us places. So Friday rolls around and I'm like okay today seriously better be fun because no one has school. My room mates and I plan on going to Fall Fest which is apparently usually for freshman but we decided to go anyway. So its 70s theme and I realize I have nothing to wear which is surprising because I have tons of tie dye but my box is somewhere in the mail...Its been in the mail for a while now so I'm hoping some stranger isn't walking around in my cute plaid heels or my tie dye shirts because I will probably be pretty mad...scratch that not probably i will be. So anyway we go there and meet up with Jackie and Kristen and then we wait in the line for tie dye but its ridiculous and who wants to wait that long in lines? Not me. But we got free t shirts anyway because the first 1000 people got them. Added bonus.

 So then we got free pizza and as college students you take any amount of free food that you can get your hands on because we/ mainly me are super poor right now. Theres even a dance but since we were pretty early it was lame which means we left. So we headed back to the Colony to get ready to go to another party. This is where the night became fun. So Jake (a friend of Winnie's), walked us outside to a white BMW convertible. Not his but it was still pretty sweet. A car that should really only hold 4 maybe 5 people because the backseat is so small ended up holding 7. Three squished in the back with my poor room mate Annalisa across our laps, who could really go any minute, was seriously the highlight of my evening. Jake was such a fun driver, and besides the fact that it was freezing it was one of the funniest things I got to do here in Utah. When we came to a stoplight we got a lot of stares, maybe because Heather was doing the pageant wave like we were in some sort of parade or maybe because Jake was driving kinda crazy at times...but anyway this guy rolled down his window and I'm figuring hes gonna tell us how dumb we are or yell at us like hes our parent but instead he calls to Jake "Are you the only guy?" and Jake smiles and goes yup and the guy gives him a thumbs up and offers to take some of the girls off his hands hahahaha. So not exactly how I had thought it would go but it was pretty funny. So we get to this party and theres lots of people and by people I mean guys because when youre a girl, lets be honest, thats all that really matters but no one who really catches my eye. I quickly realize I'm ready to go but we just got there so we might as well hang out for a while. So then my room mates decide they are ready to go and Jake being as sweet as he is offers to give us a ride home. The guy who actually owned the car didn't want to but Jake just stood up and was all nice about it. Jake just keeps on winning points as the night goes on. See the thing with Jake is, hes a hot commodity and I was like whoa I am not trying to get into all that drama with girls fighting over this kid, but its getting really hard not to like him. Jake and I walk alone and we talk about motorcycles and our shared love for them and then we all pile into the convertible. I sat shotgun and my room mates sat in the back and were so cold I literally could hear their teeth chattering and I guess Jake could too because without even being asked to give up his jacket the boy takes his jacket off and hands it to the girls to get warm. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This is seriously so impressive...I wanna hug his mom. At this moment I'm sure I had a look of awe and admiration for this boy with such good manners. Now dont get me wrong I'm not into him at all, I just think he seems like a really good guy and who doesn't like those?    

So Saturday I got to wake up at the lovely hour of 7. On a Saturday that is just not okay. I had orientation for work and it was really cool, okay so it was freezing when I woke up so I took the bus to the mall and the malls open at this hour for cute little old people who exercise in the mall. So I go through the whole mall and realize that all the other doors are locked, so I get to sprint back to the beginning and walk around. Luckily I am still 10 minutes early to the orientation but talk about a little stress... Then later on in the day, my room mate Kelly who just got engaged invited the room mates to go dress shopping with her and I'm crazy about weddings and love so of course I'm all for it. But it was so weird to sit in those chairs and not only watch Kelly try on wedding dresses but all these girls who looked like they couldn't be a day older than 15...But then again, I am in it all makes perfect sense. I then text Jack and were talking about what were doing and I tell him I'm wedding dress shopping and he goes "Are you getting married?!?!?!" and i tell him yes! and then tell him no because thats mean and he goes "oh okay I was about to be pretty bummed if you were. Congrats to your room mate." Did I mention I love Jack? Jack also told me that he thinks "I'm cute and I should consider myself lucky because he pretty much never tells girls that." Really Jack, just cute?...thats all. ;) just kidding.
