Where'd all the good people go?

Lately I've been thinking... Imagine that. What I've come up with is that I have a problem. Ha, I know a lot of you having been thinking that for years, but this is like a big deal.

I am a hopeless un-romantic.

Let me explain. I haven't had a date, like a real date since Moses knows when. It's not that I'm unfortunately terrible looking ( I would have to say that I am quite foxy, but that's just a personal opinion.), and it's not that I am terribly awkward. Okay-I am awkward, but not in a bad way, and it's not that I can't talk to men. I am happy to say that I talk to a boy in my bible class every TTh morning and it doesn't make me want to stab my eyes out. So what is my problem you ask?(besides the obvious one stated above.)

I have no freaking idea.

The thought of flowers makes me roll my eyes, and chocolates don't help my diet any. I would giggle at a poem or song, and by giggle I mean laugh. And if the L-word is uttered, I would probably be speechless. Then most likely run away. I see right through all the lines, all the number exchanging. I just don't see any of that as worth the trouble, when it doesn't last.

BUT! to counter all of the doom and gloom you just read, I love fairy tails, stories with a happy ending. I LIVE absolutely LIVE for on-screen kisses. I want to be loved and cherished and valued. I want to have kids and a dog and a backyard. I want to live. Do you see my problem here?

Also, you might think that I feel this way because I lack confidence and that might be true. But I think that it's worse than that. I have talked to guys and I just don't like them, I don't feel like they are worth the hassle.

So, here is the conclusion. If you didn't follow that, I think this will help. I want to be charmed. I want to fall head over heels in love. I want a guy to be creative and spontaneous and most of all, honest. I want them to do everything they can to make me believe that love lasts. That it's real. So this goes to you, future man: You have got a long crazy road ahead of you. And if this scares you off, well I guess you're just a pansy. But to that one who sticks it out, I promise I'm worth it.

Our Turtukeykey Day!

I'm home! And cooking:) Here are some snapshots of the Thanksgiving feast at the Rudd house!

Mom and I preparing the meal.
 Dad gearing up to eat the meal. He just got a tooth pulled, and is sick, so this picture was a score.
 We're pre-gaming here.
 Best Friends:)
Our menu included: Ham (cause we're rebels like that), hashbrown casserole, greenbean casserole, sweet potato casserole, we like casseroles, corn, stuffing, rolls, and tea. AND for dessert: pumpkin pecan strusel pie and BS( blueberry salad), an old recipe renamed by yours truly. Nobody likes the word salad. It makes me think of mayo and shredded carrots and frozen peas. Sick. So BS sounds much more lively. Yes?

Along with this, we came to the conclusion that I am too cynical to fall in love and that Kelsey has a knack for making up new words to old songs and impersonating Paula Dean (Hey ya'll!!). Mom is excellent at halving recipes, dad is a freak on meds, Cody is the Oreo whisperer, Chili wants nothing in life but to play with her ball, and Oreo will do anything for ham. Even if it means standing on her back legs.

I hope your Thanksgiving rocks as much as mine.

Thanksgiving! Plus...more nifty things:)

THANKSGIVING. It is my favorite holiday. Fitness magazine stated that the average American eats over 4,500 calories on this delicious day. Why was I reading Fitness magazine? To try to not eat 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving. Will it work? no. Is it a fun fact I can use in sarcastic situations? yes. Moving on.

I have been inspired to make this blog meaningful. I want it to have a point. I want to do something to better myself. I want to see things, eat things, experience things. I want to live. So that is what I am going to do. Get ready. This is going to change the WORRRLLLLDDD!!! Not really, but it might make you laugh. AND that is good.

So! I will let you know what will happen in this life changing experience, when I know what will happen in this life changing experience. Until then, have a happy Thanksgiving! Be sure to remember who and what you are thankful for, and let them know! Here is my thankful picture for today!

She's my bestie. She calls me Pancake. And she's helping me with our life changing process. Get pumped for some K-quotes.

I'm back!

Sorry I've been gone for so long, College was calling. But never fear, I am back spamming the internet yet once again. You're welcome. These past few weeks have been rollercoaster-ish at best. Letteth me fill you in.

Date Week: Taking place at OC currently. Have I had a date? no. Have I finished off an entire box of Easy Mac? yes. Enough said.

Harry Potter: The BEST thing that has ever happened to me.

Chocolate Chip Poptarts: The second best thing that has ever happened to me.

Along with those nifty little highlights, I have turned in 3 papers, taken 2 tests and made an appointment to get my teeth cleaned. I am officially the worlds most boring freshman, but I am perfectly fine with it.

Let's get personal here: I felt really lost this week and I think it's because I didn't blog. Sounds strange, but this thing rocks. I get to make myself giggle. Just saying that I get to make myself giggle makes me giggle. (giggle) ANYwhoo... As well as stated above, I have made some personal accomplishments this week. This is where you guys will be proud.

I have realized that I am Jordan. Yes, yes I am. I should not try to act different to attract people. I'm weird and slightly socially awkward, why not embrace those oh-so-charming qualities? Someday, I will meet that person just as dorky as me and the rest will be history. I am willing to be patient. I mean think about it, how many people have you met like me? Yeah, it's going to take awhile to meet my future nerd-mate. But totally worth it in the end. Until then, John Mayer will sooth my soul. Also, I have learned how to say no. These college years are supposed to be the best of your life, but only if you slow down every once and awhile and not let yourself be peer pressured into doing crap that you don't want to. I have learned to be my own person and do things that I enjoy doing! Don't get me wrong, be willing to try new things. I'm not saying be lame. I'm just saying, that I have to step back and do things for me. Here is a pretty picture that made me happy this week. Enjoy!

Yeah! That's what's up! It's almost TURKEY DAY!!! Get pumped! WOOOOO!!!

Okay, I'm done now.

I have friends:)

When I first got to college I pretty much panicked on a hourly basis. I mean like serious breakdowns. I hadn't made new friends since I was in 8th grade, and even then I was in a class of somewhere around 17 kids. So it wasn't terribly hard. But this is college! Aren't you supposed to meet your bridesmaids in college? Like your life long friends?! BAH!!! That's scary, but completely true. I actually didn't have any friends until I made cheer. Cheer saved me. I know this is a silly post, but I am so so excited that God has blessed me with all of these girls! Soo... here are some glimpses of my new favorite duplicates' first hockey game with me and Kelsey.

I just thought I would give you guys a little joy:) I can honestly say that these girls will be in my wedding some day. I can feel it. These are those kinds of friends you know? 

So anyways, we had the most fantastic time watching UCO. Carly and Caitlin hit the glass and made awkward eye contact with the guys getting hit and I was completely embarrassed as usual. The tall kids always seem to gang up on the short one. What is it with me and tall friends anyways? Strange. These are my tall friends and I love them, even though they make me do awkward things. 

Sorry for getting so emotional. I guess I do have a soul!
