"Dork Confessions"

So my friends and I all really like this movie called Sydney White. But one of our favorite parts of the movie are the "Dork Confessions" at the end. We often have our own Dork Confessions when we get together, and it makes us all laugh.

Basically a Dork Confession is something you have done recently of it may even be a habit, that kind of makes you seem like a dork. Here is my latest example, and I plan of keeping small part of this blog dedicated to my own Dork Confessions. Oh, and it is important that you state your name at the beginning and then at the end you say "and I'm a Dork."

Hi, my name is Megan

And I can answer almost any trivia question about any of the Harry Potter Books.

My dentist rented out a theater  for an early showing of the final installment of the Harry Potter movie series, and he gives out tickets to his patients and new patients. He also gives away a pair of tickets to anyone who can answer his Harry Potter trivia questions.

I can answer every question he puts up through Facebook within seconds. I have won 6 tickets with my awesome skills, 4 of which I won for my sister and mom. My mom calls me obsessed, I just liked the books.

and I am a Dork.

My Own Little Recipie

So this is a recipe of my own invention. I think it is really good, and I've had great success when making it for others. So I wanted to share it...

Yellow Chicken w/ Rice


1 cup of Rice (white)
2 cups of Water

1/2 lb of Chicken Breast
Garlic Powder
1/2 cup of Italian Dressing
2 TBS of Yellow Mustard

*You will want to start the rice about 30 min before you want to start the chicken.

Put the Water in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. When the water reaches a boil, turn temperature to low and add Rice. Stir the rice in the water until it is evenly distributed, then place lid on the pan and let the rice cook until all of the water is gone.

Alright now we are on to the chicken part-

Cut the Chicken into small cubes, no more than 1 in. Once you have cut the chicken, place in a hot skillet and add Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and any other spices you might like (for a spicier side of this recipe, add some red pepper.)Cook chicken until you can cut into a larger piece and no longer see a translucent pink color.

Once the Chicken has been fully cooked, reduce heat to low then add the Italian Dressing and the Yellow Mustard and mix well. Serve the chicken over rice.
*The chicken will only have a small amount of sauce, but believe me, a little goes a long way.
Serves 2-3
Total Cook Time 45 min.

I have been looking for a job for a little over a month now, and I am really ready to just start working. I have learned a couple of things about myself along this journey:

1. I am really good at keeping eye contact with an interviewer.
2. I talk a lot when I am nervous.
3. it is harder to make a connection with a male interviewer.
4. No matter how hard I try, I will not be able to bend the Lord's will to my own.

Number four has a story behind it, as you probably have guessed. Here's the story.

I got an interview at Allyse's Bridal in the University Mall. I was so excited because I love this store and being able to work there would be the coolest thing ever. The interview went really well, I was able to make a connection with the lady interviewing me. Coming out of the interview I felt peaceful, but I also knew in my heart that I wouldn't get the job.

Well I didn't like that feeling; so I said a prayer first of gratitude, and then to tell my Heavenly Father that I really wanted that job. This kind of prayer continued for the next few days, until I was to receive the decision from the store. I didn't get the job. It made me sad, but I wasn't angry at all. I felt the same peace I had right after the interview. I knew that I would find a job this summer, and it would be even better for me.

So I continue with new faith that I will find the perfect job for me. And to anyone also looking for a job, good luck!
