Memory Monday

Drew and I have A LOT of junk.

We tried to go through some bins yesterday and get rid of stuff. We got rid of about 1% of the stuff we went through.

The pack rat-ness lives on!

Anywhoo, I found my old journal that I used my sophomore/junior year at BYU. I got a kick out of reading it. I am SO DANG GIRLY. Seriously. But I thought it would be fun to share with you the story of how Drew and I got together, straight from the horse's (or my) mouth. (P.S. I changed all the names, except for mine and Drew's. Just for people's privacy. And I may/may not edit as I type it in. You'll never know the difference.)

19 February 2006:

Oh how much has happened in the last month! Well, I broke up with Lorenzo because he wasn't very good at the dating game. He just thought he was doing his part and he really wasn't. Anyway, it was a really good break up. Then I was pretty interested in this guy Sergio in my ward and could tell that he was kinda interested back, BUT, then something kinda random happened.

Drew Pepper, my chair for the Friendship committee, came over on Tuesday, about 2 weeks ago. I had broken things off with Lorenzo that previous Sunday. Anyway, Drew had always been super sarcastic, borderline mean to me. So, I knew he liked me because Julius, his roommate, told me. (P.S. Julius and Berta--my roommate--dated for about a month but they broke up last night.)

So Drew came over on Tuesday and told me he broke up with his previous girlfriend. He also told me it was because he wanted to date me. Crazy, huh? So I am going to give him a chance. We went on our first official date last night to Young Ambassadors but we've been hanging out for a while now. He is so nice to me now, though.

Oh, but this guy at work asked for my number so we could watch his favorite movie together and then this guy that I study Spanish with asked me on a date. I've never had so many guys interested in me at once. So, Sergio is out of the picture now. But I'm having fun with Drew. I can be myself around him and he's funny and he's cute.

I write about some other things and end with:

I think I like Drew, though.

This is straight out of my journal. Isn't it funny? I'm such a girl with all the boy talk. Really, weren't there more important things going on in the world? My posterity will never know 'cause all I wrote about were boys. Oh dear. Also, I like that I say "I THINK I like Drew." Haha, what a good start to an eternal relationship, don't ya think?

I love it! My journal during that time period sounds very similar. Every once in a while you see something like, "Oh, and I finished another semester of college." You can tell where our priorities were!

This made me laugh so much! I love all the name changes. That year was so fun, we really did talk about boys all the time. Midnight game planning totally worked!
