It has been a while since I rosebudded. Sorry, folks.

Thorn: I still have so many laps to swim in the Lazyman Ironman. I'm doing well on everything else, but swimming is going to kill me.

Bud: I'm listening to the audiobook version of the Hunger Games. Wow. I love it. I know I'm 100 years behind everyone else on this, but all I want to do is listen to it. That would be the main reason that I'm advancing so much on my biking and running and not on swimming.

Petal: I'm going to check out City Creek Center and I've heard it's the bomb. Also, General Conference.

And for my posterity (...assuming I have any), not because you haven't seen this before, a photo from the Festival of Colors.

No green, sorry.

Thorn: an attempted (and denied) kiss.
Bud: We Bought a Zoo.
Petal: maybe someday I'll find true love.

Thorn: only biking 10 miles when I needed to do 16.
Bud: indoor sky diving, Just Dance, spending all day with Ashley.
Petal: at some point in the future, I will be reunited with her.

Some days I'm full of life.
Some days I'm not.
Sorry folks.


Thorn: Woke up dead. By that I mean sore and tired. Got up too late to do my hair so I brought my curling iron in my backpack. After my first class I went into a bathroom in the JKB and started curling away, trying to make sure that no one I knew saw me. Don't worry, first girl that walks in is in my ward. Humiliating.

Bud: Pi(e) party. ALL the pies were yummy. And the company was great :)

Petal: Tennis! This is also kind of a bud because I played today. But it's a petal because I plan to play a lot more this spring.

Sweaty lactic acid death.

Thorn: Didn't have time to change out of my spandex-y workout clothes before Latino Outreach. The missionaries were there.  This is literally one of my worst nightmares.
Bud: I matched with Jessie!
Petal: My dear friend Bryan is surprise getting married on Saturday instead of at the end of the semester. They're going to be so happy together!

* Note: the title comes from my private workout blog. That basically explains my workout today.

No, this post is not about the #1 movie of all time, Citizen Kane. It is about something I heard about from a friend affectionately known around these parts as "Van Boy." In an effort to start blogging more, I am setting a goal for myself to post daily with my rosebud.

Here's how it works. Thorn = something bad going on. Bud = something good going on. Petal = something exciting in the future.

So here goes today's.

Thorn: I ate a rancid avocado. It was absolutely disgusting and I had been looking forward to my dinner all day.

Bud: I started the Lazyman Ironman and ran 3 miles with Courtney. She's the greatest friend because even though she had already run six miles today, she went with me anyway. Also, clearly she's a workout beast. In the best, most feminine way possible.

Petal: Pi day is coming up on Wednesday and I found four delicious pies that I'm considering making. Mmm.

More to come tomorrow! I think this is a good way to appreciate life every day. Plus, since I can pretty easily blog from my phone, I have no excuses! And isn't that what life is all about? The no excuses part, of course.
