Catching the girl-who-always-has-a-boyfriend

On Saturday evening the semi-finalists for the BYU Business Plan Competition were announced. eRentPayer made it! Now we are semi-finalists in both the Utah entrepreneur challenge and the BYU competition. We will be giving a 10 minute presentation to a panel of judges on March 27 and then they will choose a few finalists that will present before a large group. I think we have a really good chance at winning this thing. I'm not exactly sure what our competitors make/do, but we really have a good product.

Saturday was a really good day for me. I went and got Rachel and we hung out with Dave, Brittany, Larry, and Krista. Brittany is one of those girls that moved into the ward with a boyfriend. Then, for the rest of the year, nobody asked her out because they all thought she had a boyfriend. Anytime any guy even mentions her name, there is an immediate response: "Oh, forget about her. She has a boyfriend." Even though nobody is really sure if she actually does or not. So I called a friend of mine and asked her to go find out for me. She went over and talked to all the neighbors and the consensus was that she broke up with her boyfriend and was currently single. It was a miracle! This was Dave's chance. Catching the girl-who-always-has-a-boyfriend on her break up cycle is sheer euphoria for a guy at BYU. He waited two weeks so that the original scout-call couldn't be traced to him, then he called, asked her out, and the rest is history. The point is I'm proud of Dave for getting a date (and probably a second date) with a highly wanted chick.

Speaking of relationships, Adam broke up with Holly :-( It's for the best, but it was hard for the both of them. This comes as a shock, of course, since they had a planned break up at the end of April. Yes, that's right, a planned break up. I guess it just didn't feel right anymore - which usually happens after about three weeks, so I'm proud of them for even making it this far.
