Amid the Thing We Like to Call The Weekend, Sorry If This Appears Like I'm Venting!

So I have about 20 minutes to blog my heart out before I indeed "START" working, it sometimes takes me awhile to get started. And since today is monday I have to try to start working twice as hard because it usually takes me longer to get to work.

So This weekend was alright, I didn't do a heck of a lot since I really didn't want to do anything or go anywhere, I did however, want to go out either friday or saturday it really didn't matter to me however, that entire plan was kiboshed for several factors! It would have been nice to get to hang out with a friend of mine who is leaving for the SUMMER SEMESTER and possibly into FALL SEMESTER @ BYU!

1. I wasn't officially invited
2. I accidently found out something was going on

Here's the little back story.

in October there was a YSA conference in Boston (a general authority was speaking, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, I believe) I pretty much did all the leg work, finding out about it (I emailed one of the CES Directors in boston), got the registration form, emailed everyone the registration form, etc. The only hitch in my plan was being able to get a ride to and from boston with Just money to pay for pretty much the registration @ the conference and that was it! This was at least a month and a half before the conference.

Yes I could have driven to the conference (ALL BY MYSELF!) however, at the time of the conference the Car that I would be driving was at least 20 years old and i didn't think that my little car would make it. (It wouldn't have at all, but that's another story for another day)

So as the conference got closer there was more and more excitement about the conference and I was getting ready to register, find a ride, etc. So I had been talking to SEVERAL of the GIRLS who I thought were REALLY CLOSE FRIENDS! So that they knew that I needed a ride, etc.

So about 3 weeks before the conference we were talking about it in RS and I raised my hand and said, I'd be more than happy to go with anyone If any of you could give me a ride that would be wonderful. I waited for a minute or two and NO ONE SAID ANYTHING!! and then one girl piped up and said "YOU CAN FLY WITH ME YOU JUST GOTTA BUY A TICKET!" which 1) is really dumb because she knew for a fact that I couldn't afford it!

So, needless to say I was left out of going to the conference and wasn't even thought of when arranging rides even though I asked these REALLY CLOSE GIRL FRIENDS! (several of the girls who were in a car with these REALLY CLOSE FRIENDS did not end up having a GOOD TRIP, because several of these other girls are VERY SELF ABSORBED and CONTROLLING!!!)

So this weekend I found out about a social gathering goodbye party of sorts that was going on Saturday night for a friend that I've had for a long time. The unfortunate thing was I found out about the whole thing over the lovely CLOSE FRIEND writing a message on another CLOSE FRIENDS wall that this social gathering was happening.

I know I'm a little bitter I understand that but said close friend should stop being so self absorbed and realize that she is not this girls only friend! It just hurts a little bit more as well because said girl (the inviter) is the Relief Society President!

So I really don't know what to do I have so much love an respect for the people in my branch that to be left out of things and not invited to things sucks especially when I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH THESE PEOPLE! I don't want to sit at home every weekend and "do nothing" Yes I do live in the boonies, BUT I have a car and am MORE THAN WILLING TO DRIVE to hang out with YOU!

I'm sorry. I've had plenty of those times when I thought I had big plans but they fell through because my friends were unreliable as well.

i really don't think it was the girl being completely unrelible, because there have been several opportunities where she's said something that I've really had to take what she's said with a grain of salt!

Ahh Jen, I'm sorry. I've been in your shoes--it totally sucks. I hope things get sorted out!! xo

Looking Forward

There are some things I have been thinking about recently that are basically summed up in this thought from Matthew Hussey, who is a relati...
