Favorite Mistakes

You know how you're supposed to learn from your mistakes? And not repeat them? Well, I don't. That is, I don't learn from them. I do repeat them. But, in my defense, not all of them. I'm not sure if this is cuz I'm stubborn or stupid or I have a selective memory. Either way, here are some things I haven't learned yet.

-Vanilla extract doesn't taste good! It may smell like heaven, but I'm pretty sure that it doesn't taste like heaven. 
-Going a week without exercising, and then expecting to be able to run 6 miles without pain is not possible.
-Buying bananas that aren't ripe hoping that you'll have more time to eat them doesn't work.
-V8 is disgusting.
-Keeping in touch with old crushes/boyfriends/obsessions is not necessarily a good idea.
-A slight deviation in a diet does not necessitate a complete u-turn. I mean, eating one cookie does not then mean you eat 10 more cookies cuz "you already screwed up." Even if it is fun.
-I don't tan. Seriously-I've tried and failed numerous times. Here's the latest documentation.

Okay, I hope you remember me from BYU IS, but I came across your blog while blog surfing. It's been a while! Thanks for dropping me off from work those few times and getting me into MxPx. :)
Glad to see you're doing well, despite your favorite mistakes :)
