Best Friend

Best friends are soul mates.
No Matter how much you speak,
You listen to me.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


Okay I'm really sorry that I have left my blog unattended once again...but I'm busy. And a lot of things just come before me writing my thoughts down on the good old web. And in all honesty, if you want to know my me.

Okay so I just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower for the second time in my short time here on this earth. And I feel like I read it for the first time. Okay a little thing about me....whenever a book is getting turned into a movie, I try to read the book before I see it. Emphasis on the word TRY. But so far, I'm doing really well. I bought my own copy this time and marked it all myself. In Purple Pen. And some pink highlighter. But mostly Purple Pen. That just seemed right. So whilst marking in Perks with my Purple Pen I just got to thinking about the first time I read it.

It goes as follows:
My new friend Scott Zaborski asked if I would want to read it. At this point Scott and I didn't know each other super well (like how he had a super cool hidden talent which I won't spill here, and how his first name is NOT Scott. That on kind of blew my mind.)...but I was allowed in his room sometimes and I knew that was a pretty big deal. So he had explained to me that Perks was his favorite book. So he asked me if I wanted to read it together. I was so flattered that one of my first college experiences was about to happen. Dorm life. Scott explained to me that I had to mark in his books when I read them. And I think I read Running with Scissors before this so I kind of knew the drill. (Waterlogged that book.... :/)
But the thing with that book was I was the first one to mark a lot of things. So it was cool. But when I opened was like magic. There were so many notes in the margins!!! It was like I was actually reading it with people. And that was so beautiful and collegy to me. For a few times, another best friend came to read too. His name is Michael Johnson. I was the luckiest girl in the world. Being in a too small dorm room, sitting on a too small twin bed, and reading a book that mattered.
I honestly think I was so caught up in the college experience that I must have missed very important parts of this novel. Because reading it this week, I just caught on to so much more. It's perfect. And logical. And emotional. And raw. And beautiful.

And infinite.

Since reading it the first so many things have happened to me.
So many people have affected my life. Maybe I have affected their lives too. And maybe that is why this book was so different to me. Maybe I'm different.

For the better.
But I would just like to let the world know how grateful I am for Scott Zaborski. Not only for showing me that amazing book, but for being the best friend a girl could ask for. I love you. And I don't know where we will end up But I do know that:
(Choose your own adventure!)
A. You'll be in my heart.
B. I have been changed for good.
C. I was enchanted to meet you.
D. Some things you'll do for money, some things you do for fun. But the things you do for love are going to come back to you one by one.
E. We could be heroes!
F. And in that moment I swear, we were infinite.
G.Arches at 2 in the morning was one of the best mornings ever. Ever.
H. Listening to the Perks Soundtrack in the Canyon with you is my favorite.

I've been a horrible blogger as of late. Maybe that will change. And maybe it won't. But the beauty of that is: it's my blog and I can do whatever I want all the days :)

Well the summer has come and gone and school started today. I had a really great summer!!! I lived somewhere other than my normal home. And it was kind of an adventure. I strengthened some friendships, made some new friends, and made some adult choices that were really hard. I learned a lot. Made some mistakes. Made memories. And I think that's all you can ask for a summer really.
School started today and I WAS SO EXCITED! I bought my school supplies. I got some new clothes. I was too excited to even sleep. I just love to learn I think. And after a summer of being lazy AND working hard, it was so good to get back into the groove of things.
But more than that I decided that this was a time to be grateful. Because honestly, I tend to take things for granted.
But I realized something. I'm so blessed. And I honestly don't take enough time to thank everyone for how much they mean to me. Including my Heavenly Father. So I am trying to make that more of a habit in my life. To say thank you.
I was so excited to start school because I realized it's an amazing opportunity to be a student and study whatever I choose. Maybe to even go to school. So I've decided to be thankful. Thankful to be alive. Thankful to have a wonderful support system. Thankful to be Just Lisha.

Do you see me now?
Because I feel so see through.
Touch me and I'll know.


Sunday, July 1, 2012


I've neglected my little blog baby for a minute. But that's probably because nothing super exciting has happened in my life. My job is good and I'm loving this summer. It's been a blast so far.
I went to the Manti Pageant this weekend and had so much fun with some amazing people. It's kind of cheesy in some parts, but I'm alright with cheese. But the end always gives me chills. And for those of you that haven't seen it, I won't spoil it. But it's really great :) I love everything about it really. I love the town, the drive there, the summer air. I think I love summer so much because it's like it will never end. When it's hot outside, I don't think that the leaves are going to change. I don't think about the depressing dirty snow I'll see soon. I don't think about the major changes in my life that will take place soon. I just think about how around 8:30 pm every summer night is my favorite. I think that I need another ice cold...something. I think about how I want a Jamba every single afternoon. I think about how I'm getting pretty tan :)

And I think that's okay right now. And even if it's not, it still is.

Thank you Taylor Swift

Day 26 Think back to how you were 5 years ago. How have you changed since then?

So 5 years ago...I was the beautiful age of 16. I couldn't see beyond the world that I had created for myself. School was good. Friends were good. Life was good. I looked forward to everything. Nothing bad happened. I was judgmental. I just wanted to be normal. And I couldn't wait for dances to happen. Or for dates to arrive.

I am now 21 and I see the world for what it is. A sometimes scary place with beautiful people. School is still good. Friends are amazing. Life. Is. Good. I look forward to everything. Bad things happen. But I learned to roll with the punches. The bad is what makes the good so, good. I have learned to love people for who they are. Nothing more, nothing less. That has made me realize how genuine people are. It's a beautiful thing. I'm not normal. By any means. I am special. I am different. I am Lisha. And now I don't wait for dances. Dances wait for me.

"I'd like the McSappy please..."

Day 25 Something you miss

I haven't written a poem this whole blog I thought I'd take a chance. Since it's my blog anyway, yeah?

I miss the summer drives that lasted just long enough.
The singing at the top of our lungs.
The new songs I learned because of you.
The hands that would hold mine. The inside jokes.
The fires.
Baseball games.
And the heart to heart to hearts we would have.
I miss the scary movie nights.
Every night.
The goodbyes at the door.
The random "I love yous".
I miss you.
And I'll never get that back.

If it makes you happy

Day 21 Something that makes you happy

This is me at the beach. I would have to say that something that makes me the most happy is the sand and sunshine. Hopefully that is followed by a DisneyLand trip. There are very few things better than DisneyLand.

Big Girl You Are Beautiful

Day 20 The meaning behind your blog name

Play Me

If you want, you can click the link above and listen to this beauty of a song while you read my explanation. (I strongly suggest that you do.)

Big Girl You Are Beautiful. I'm a big girl. With curves. With pretty eyes. And pair of pretty awesome....legs. ;) I own it. I never claim to want to be a size 2 because that's not who I am. I am Lisha. I am beautiful. And people aren't perfect, this I know. And we never will be. And honestly, I made this my blog name because I love the song. I love the message it gives. But I really love that it doesn't say "Big Girl You Are Beautiful On The Inside". Because as a larger member of society I'm so SICK AND TIRED of people saying "It's what's on the inside that counts". Yeah, sure it counts. But that's not what people SEE. I think everyone on this planet has the right and divine potential to feel pretty. To feel wanted. To feel sexy. To feel lovely. To....feel. And that's what I want. I want people to know that. I want people to feel. Feel something for themselves that they never thought was possible.

So, that's all.

Day 16 A photo of you and your family

This one was a difficult one, because I couldn't find a picture of us all together. How silly. 

These are the parental units. We may have our ups and downs, but they are always there for me and are there to help me whenever I need. I love you.

This is the Lucy. Her and I are 15 years apart. She's a goofball and a very smart little lady. I always wanted a little sister. And I'm so glad I got one :)

This is the Spencer and I at Halloween last year. I was Blue and he was Steve. He and I are 18 years apart. He's our little Caboose, but we love him just the same ;)

Truth be Told

Day 15 Something you don't leave the house without

Okay. This will probably seem really silly and trivial. But I don't leave the house without lipgloss/ chapstick or my phone. And if I do, I might as well have walked out without a bra. They're that important.

Thanks for listening to me rant....

Paper Towns

Day 12 A photo of the town you live in

I currently live in Price, Utah. There aren't really words to describe it. It's little. It's out in the middle of nowhere. It's perfect. I think I love the people there more than anything. I've made some of my best friends there. It will always be special to me.

My mom's an Avon Lady

Day 11 What's in your makeup bag

Probably my favorite bag ever. I LOVE MAKEUP! Any kind. Any color. I love it all. I am kind of picky about what I use on myself, but it doesn't have to be designer brand by any means. I think if a product works, it just works. So here are some of my staples.

Liquid eyeliner is a must for me. I like to play with metallics sometimes, but basic black is always a favorite. This new eyeliner pen is really cool and I'm liking it alot. 

I LOVE THIS MASCARA!!! I don't have super long lashes, so this helps mine out A TON! Beauty.

Hard Candy is honestly one of my favorite brands for makeup. I love their eye shadow and blush so much. Great colors all the days! This is a bronzer and I love how soft it is and how it just gives me kind of that glow  without making me look fake tan. 

One of my all time favorite foundations. I love the color and how soft if makes my skin feel. 

I had never heard of this until my mom gave it to me. I love that is has an sunscreen in it and it has made my skin glorious!! 

I didn't put any eye shadow on here because it would take FOREVER to tell you all the ones that I love. It's my favorite thing to do!!! Just know that I love a bunch :)

Day 7 Your Dream Wedding

I'd be lying if I said I never thought about my wedding. Of course I do! It's exciting to think about a really important day :) So here are some things that I want.

Gorgeous rings.

A killer cake

A gorgeous venue.

Pretty lights.

But most of all, I want this.

Looking Back

Day 5 A photo of yourself 2 years ago 

I'm not really sure if I was supposed to give an explanation of the photo or not. But I keep forgetting that I can do whatever I want. So I will. This photo was taken the summer of 2010. My best friend Arryn and I were on our way to church and were looking too freaking cute. Also, it was the first day I had used my new mascara and I was in love. I love everything about this photo. I love the purple in my hair. My haircut. How tan I look. And how brown my eyes look. I think people sometimes forget that it's okay to feel beautiful. To feel sexy. To feel good feelings about themselves. And if I do one thing on this planet, I hope it's to make people realize that they are beautiful.

So many.

Today is a good day. Perhaps my favorite day. It's the day I get to show the world my favorite picture of my best friend. But I couldn't pick just one....and you know what? I don't have to! It's my very own blog. So here we go :)

This is Mr. R. Scott Zaborski. He's my best friend. And this is my favorite favorite favorite picture of him. Every time I see it, it just brings me joy. He's amazing. He worked at Ice Berg okay? Don't mess with him.

Bethany Rose. My bestie. I LOVE THIS PHOTO! She's beautiful all the days. In every sense of the word.  And this just proves it. 

This is The Kelton. He's pretty much the best boyfriend a girl could have. I love this picture because we hadn't known each other very long but we were in a drive through taking all sorts of pictures. And I remember thinking how gorgeous he was. And I still do :) 

Oh My Michael. This was last summer. In Price. By a certain fountain I believe. :) I could try to say in words  how much I love him, but that would probably take a lifetime. And I would most certainly forget something. Love you.

Arryn. Girl! She is so gorgeous!!! I love this picture because she had just gotten her eyebrows done in Virginia by her Asian lady. :) Lol the things I remember. But she's my best fran! Whenever I go home we end up just laughing over everything. And I love that :) 

Pocket Tim! This guy is so freaking talented it's insane!!! I love this picture of him because he was wearing those pants that his bum looked so cute in ;) Love you Tim! 

The Wife. Can't forget her!! Grace my roomie :) Many good talks, nerd sessions, and online TV watching happened with this beautiful girl. Love her so much!
