Not how I thought it would be

Well, my sister is now a ture Sister missionary as she has left for Ukraine. My family got a call from her this morning at 8:30 and we were able to talk to her for about an hour with 3 people on 3 different phones listening intently. After we said our goodbyes my parents had the idea to go see her plane leave. We knew which kind it would be and about what time her flight would leave so we all got in the Tahoe and sped off to the airport to "see" her plane off. We all kind of got a little melancholy when we saw what we thought was my sisters plane, but then we all got excited thinking of the wonderful experiences she would have. She then called again when she reached Chicago and it was only my mother and me this time. That was really special because we didn't have to share with anyone else. It was just us girls talking. My sister told me that she had seen some of my friends at the MTC, an Elder Dalton and Elder Peterson. Elder Peterson asked my sister if I was waiting for a certain Elder already on his mission and when she said YES he said oh ok. Sadly enough I had a crush on this guy a while ago. I then spoke my last goodbye to her for the next 15 months and after she hung up my mother and I both sighed a little and then got excited again for her. Anyway, the reason for this title is because I thought that I'd be bawling today but I'm so happy for my sister, and thinking about it 3 months have already gone by meaning my sis has only 1 year and 3 months to go. The time will speed by like a pack of flying monkeys. I'm just so proud of her and I had to tell you all so dont worry about me, I'm perfectly happy.

Just Words

Words can be so powerful. They can make you happy, sad, confused, and even mad but who knew that a phrase of these most powerful words can provoke all of these and more. 3 little words combined that can create every feeling in the world. You know how you truely want to react, but everyone tells you to act another way and it eats at your insides. There is no way to make everybody happy so to please the most amount of people, you end up hurting yourself, or even worse....someone you care very much for. Words can be so powerful!

Pink of Perfection

CONFESSION
I love pink, and if you were to look in my closet the majority of my clothes are pink. I even have some pink pants. I wasn't always like this though. Before my older sister left for college (and at christmas time) she would get pink PJ'S and I would get purple or blue ones because we couldn't have matching colors. When she left I kind of went "pink happy" and got everything in pink. I guess it just sort of stuck with me and still the majority of my clothes are pink.

CRAZY? I THINK NOT

WOW Extreme Home Makeover is in my town and I cant believe it. Right now, my roommates and I are waiting around for 4:30 A.M. to go volunteer and I'm sooooo excited cuz:
1- volunteering is soo good for you
2- maybe we'll see Ty HOTTIE TOTTIE WITH THE BODY
3- we'll get a cool EHM T-shirt
4- Maybe we'll be on T.V.
and 5- Who doesn't want to stay up all night so that you wont be tired in the morning?
All my roommates fell asleep and I'll admit I did for about 30 mins in a bath (which was needed) but it also helped me get up. So now it's 3:55 A.M. , my hair is half crimped (cuz it lasts through all activities better that way) I'm listening to Natasha Bedingfield while writing this and I wouldn't trade places with anyone for the world. I pity all you who are sleeping right now, and are missing this beautiful morning.

Almost gone

It only begins with a little sniffle and a few warm feelings growing into one tear, then two and pretty soon a waterfall flowing from your eyes. She talks about the feelings in her soul and makes me miss her already even though she is not gone. It's coming and though I am completely excited for her it scares me thinking that she wont be there for me to call or talk to with all my stories and problems. She knows me better than anyone and I can't imagine not having her around. I love you sister!

All events within the same day

You ever have one of those days when it seems like everything is going wrong? Well today, they didn't SEEM to go wrong. THEY WERE WRONG!!!!

First mess-up: This morning Pixie and I were in our Geology lab and found out the name of this guy we've thought was hot for a while, (we've called him hot Geology boy for a while) but we finally know his name and it's Mr. White. 2 hours later we had the class. When we fist got there Mr. White was not there. We sat in some seats (auditorium seating) close to the front and then I start to wonder where Geology boy was so of course I said out loud "WHERE IS MR. WHITE, I wonder where he is etc .etc. etc. and I just keep going. Finally Pixie (who is trying to keep from laughing) grabs her phone and starts to text so I naturally read it......"he's sitting right behind you" WHAT???? so I slowly turn my head to the left just enough to see his pant let and I turn back around just mortified. There is no doubt in my mind that he heard me!

Second mess-up: Pixie was showing me a picture of me on her phone and then said "I'll keep it close to my heart", noticed it was dirty, and rubbed it on her chest. I then attempted to immitate this but threw my hand inside my shirt, just as an institute teacher walked by and gave me the wierdest look ever as if to say SINNER, and in an institute! Can this go on? OH IT CAN

Third mess-up: I was using the restroom in our apartment and either we have a really sucky (haha) toilet, or I just "over-whiped" because it got clogged. It was almost all gone so I figured I could just flush it once more and it'd be good. That just made it worse so I proceeded with the plunger. After a few ups and downs I heard a sound and looking in the toilet it was all gone, the water was clean but the water level had not dropped so I did the next "smart" thing....flush it again. Nope, not gone yet and before the water spills out onto the floor it stops 1/4 inch under the lid. PHEW!!! So now the hard decision, do you just wait for it to go down or try the plunger. I tried the plunger but slowly so as to not spill the almost spilled water. This lifted the water right to the top but no spillage luckily and then after a few tiny ups and downs it all completely drained out. Man that would not have been a fun clean up!

fourth and last mess-up: we were all talking in the front room of our apartment and as Crisco asked me to go feed the fish before any more of them went belly up (RIP NEMO) I went to take two steps and as I was saying something (but I dont really remember) and I tripped on the bean bag chair and totally biffed it in front of everone landing front face on the floor. I didn't hurt anything other than my pride. After all of this, I am ready for bed, but with my luck I'll probably roll out of my window after the glass ripped my clothes off and I'll land on some hot guys car, BUCK NAKED! I wouldn't be suprised!!!

I VERY DISLIKE THIS

Man, dont you HATE it when you think that you've done so well at something and later come to find that you didn't? It's like the biggest hit in the head saying "your stupid, you dont know anything".

Well once again another week of school has ended at 8:30 in the morning and it couldn't have come a moment too soon. Oddly enough even though there was no school on Labor Day this week seemed to go by soooo sloooowly. I had a math test in my one and only class today and I thought that it was going to be really tough. Truth be told this is the second time that I'm taking this class but I must have had a really crappy teacher because this class is kind of simple. When she would give quizes they'd have from 20 questions or more, but the test that I just took was ONLY 5 QUESTIONS LONG!!! I mean I love it when something is a little easier than normal but when there is like no challenge to it it drives me crazy. At the beginning of the class the teacher said, "now this test is going to be 25 minutes long but if you need longer you can have a few minutes." I WAS DONE IN 5 MINUTES and as I was done I just looked over the class (cuz I was in the back) and just thought "how in the world are you guys struggling with this test". What makes this even more sad is that I didn't even go to the first 3 classes because I signed on after the 3rd one so how in the world are they having a hard time when they were there for all those notes. Man I hope that the rest of the semester is like this!

Up Hill

My apartment is really wonderful. There are a lot of wonderful people to meet, and plenty to do. it's like our own little community here. Then class starts and if you aren't at the bus stop early it will pass you by so then you get to walk......UP HILL. First day was nothing, I thought to myself "I'm in shape I can walk this hill everyday if I want" HA!!! After that day I felt like I had weights attached to my ankles. They hurt so bad I thought about soaking them in hot water all day. Needless to say I will be at that bus stop as early as needed!

Once Again

Last year I wrote how I was scared to death to be heading off to college because I had no idea of what to expect. What were my roommates going to be like, will classes be hard, what kind of things should I bring, and will anyone want to be my friend. Going into un-known territory can be really terrifying that way. But now I'm going where I've gone before but it will be ten times better this year. I'm rooming with some of the best girls this year including the new girl "Betty" (who hopefully is a fun person), i've got classes with some of them as well and I feel ready to be there. But Once Again I'm off to USU and completely excited to be there.

FINALLY

It seems like everything you look forward to takes forever to finally get here but when it does come it's no surprise that it's already here. But those things that you didn't want to come, came even faster than those things you want. Why is that?

what a difference

Just recently I was able to go home because USU is off for spring break and I REALLY enjoyed it. It's good to be going back to school since my break is over, but there is one thing (besides friends and family) that I missed above everything else; having the priesthood in my home. Living in an all girls dorm you don't really get that there. When I was home, my dad gave a lesson at family home evening and I just felt so good. I didn't have anyone telling me that the church was stupid, that I was as well for believing it or that institute was a waste of time and that was such a wonderful thing for me. I just feel good being home. I do at school, but it's just not the same thing, I really do feel a difference. I love my family and especially my dad. I want to be like him and I hope that the spouse I choose some day is like him. THANK YOU DAD. I LOVE YOU!!!!!

I have been blessed

Have you heard that song before? I'm not quite sure who sings it, but it's a wonderful song and also very true. I HAVE been blessed. I have amazing friends who support me in anything I do, I have rights and freedoms that women couldn't have a while ago, and I have a Heavenly Father who loves me along with everyone else in this world not matter what they do. There are a lot of other things that we have all been blessed with, but I can't name them all because the list would go on and on. Just never take anything for granted because you never know how long you'll have it.

My new passion

I never thought that I would be saying it, but I love to go Country Dancing. I know what you are saying if you know me. "you are a dancer so it should come easy to you". It didn't. The first guy that I danced with was a horrible leader and me not knowing a thing couldn't help him out. The next guy (my age but a little strange) took it slow and taught me all of his sweet moves so I could kind of get it. After three dances with him I felt like I was getting the hang of it. My sister and I did make frequent visits to the hip-hop room which is a blast but only if you go in a little corner where no scary guys can get at ya. I then danced with 3 more guys who were amazing and pushed, turned, and placed me in a way so that I would do the move that they were doing. I never thought that I could pick up on Country Dancing. YEEEHAW!!! I especially love the line dancing. If you haven't gone country dancing I highly recommend it. Wow, what a wonderful thrill. I am glad though that I am not a guy. They are the ones who actually have to learn it because they are the ones leading the girls. Course, I'm still going to go so that I can keep practicing. Yea, how fun. I am so excited for the next dance.
