What is Love?

It ended early, and began with a few words by Haddaway.

Yesterday was the last late day with the '09 staff. And it was one of the best ... for me anyway.

After finally finishing my two stories, Alisya and I went to Burger King in Travis's car (YES HE DRIVES NOW!) and ordered a veggie burger. (yesterday was the day she lost her veggie burger virginity! yay!)

Later, while waiting for the food, I dressed up like Michy, Maly and Jeremy sang the Pokemon song and countless other theme songs, and Travis was having fun photoshopping a picture of Tito and Michael kissing.

In the famous blog "Roar! Life on Staff, a Safari," Jeremy compares the staff to -- yes you guessed it -- a safari. But I like to think of us more like the Jonas Brothers (and sisters) or Mary-Kate and Ashley, but 20 of them:)

Everytime I leave a late day I not only feel great for finishing a story, but happy. When we sit down to eat dinner I feel as if I'm eating with my brothers and sisters, and Mr. Bott as the adoptive parent.

It wasn't till I was serving myself the delicious cheese enchiladas that Alisya's mom made, that I looked at everyone eating, and Daniel played those beautiful lyrics from his speakers "What is love, baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more..." that I realized, I'm going to miss this! Surely I'll have more days like this, but not with the same people.

As everyone finished their meals, Journey played ... the classic, "Don't Stop Believing." What a perfect song to end a fantastic, busy, fun day right? I thought so, even though Skyler complained the song made him sad:)

Basically what I'm trying to say is, I ♥ this staff.

I hope the entire staff reads this!!! :)


  1. thats soooooooooooo kute..........

  2. I <3 STAGG LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Awhh.. I agree, I'll miss these days with the seniors. :'( Last late day was fun, and I thought it was pretty funny when you said we are like the Jonas Brothers or Mary kate and Ashley except there's 20 of us. You were a great twin, and this is a very touching blog. :)

  4. I gotta say, this just sounds too awesome. I'd really enjoy a time,like that and in the same process get work done. It's genius.
    Should've posted that photoshopped picture...
    Reading this post gives me a lot of joy and relieves me of all stress and it's what I need because these last weeks aren't like anything I'm expecting.

  5. Oh yea, very inappropriate with the veggie virgin, there might be kids here.

    Indeed, I'm going to miss the staff and the late days and "lol"s. It's been a good run. I only wish I could be at school enjoying the final days instead of at home sick as a trick. Gewd times with gued people. Nice blog.
