I Am Highly Desirable

In the tenth grade I had some stern words one day with my best friend Sarah Juchau. I'm pretty sure these were the exact words to come out of my mouth, "you may understand football,basketball and baseball and have kissable lips, but at least I'm compassionate!" Then I ran away.

A few months ago I was talking to some friends in the PE building on campus. Somehow the topic of me not going on any real dates my whole freshman year came up. I got heated at this point as well and told them about how, "I am a great person!" Then I ran away.

I think this is one of those moments again, except this time I'm not running away. I am standing by it because I know it's true.

I may not be able to get a glowing tan during the summer, play the piano, do ballet, or train wild horses. I am not like most girls, but who is? Really every girl is different, but I like to think I'm kind of special, but again, who doesn't? So, I'm going to take a second to float my own boat, because I think I need it tonight.

Here's a list of ten random reasons why I'm actually a great catch.

10. I am an honest person.
9. I can eat 17 Swedish pancakes. I am no sissy when it comes to eating.
8. I look great in the color turquoise
7. I make some of the best mashed potatoes known to mankind.
6. I am not afraid to plunge a toilet, clean up throw-up or kill spiders. I do what has to be done.
5. How many girls do you know that are brave enough to do this? Enough said.
4. I know how to be practical and happy. I can laugh at my mistakes and see the silver lining in most things.
3. I work hard at getting to know the best in people, however different from me they may be
2. I know I can make it through hard things, and can make a difference by helping others get through them as well.
1. I have a strong relationship with and testimony of my Savior, Jesus Christ and base my life on that foundation.
Overall, I really am a decent person. Someday my man who I'm sure is really great is going to come along and realize this. I really am highly desirable, perhaps people just need help realizing it. Someday, my someday will come along. Until then, I'm going to keep on moving forward.
