Decorating for the holiday is one of the best events of the year. About a week ago my roommate Kayla and I decided to make our apartment sparkle with the Christmas spirit. We sang our hearts out as we put up random little decorations. The most glamorous part of the decorations were the lights. We lined the ceiling with fun Christmas lights and did a border of lights around the doors. It added that finishing touch to our masterpiece! Oh the joy. Although the apartment was great, the exciting part of the decorations was the set up. I was a bit worried about whether is would all be even and whether our apartment would look tacky. So I decided to use my enthusiasm to my advantage. Because I wasn't sure if Kayla would be consistent with the lights I excitedly volunteered to pin the lights to the ceiling. I was the light woman of the evening. I stood on stools,the counter, and the TV stand for as long as I could. Although the majority of the time I had to walk/shimmy across the top of the couches to pin the lights up. Not having the back of the couches very deep I had to stand right up against the wall to finish the task I had volunteered myself into. Not only did I accomplish in pinning the lights up, but I also succeeded in knocking three pictures off the wall, and the big Asian ball! What a night! Our apartment now looks great and smells like the holidays. My first decorating experience away from home. Ha ha it couldn't have been better. I hope you all enjoyed decorating for the holidays as I did! I will see you all soon!

HI!! So I have had tons of homework and a lot of studying this last week and have had no time for anything (Not even time to talk to certain someones. So I have am keeping my end of the deal Becky.) All the same, life is good except for the fact I got 59 on my last history test that I thought I did well on. So I am mad about that.
I get to go home next Friday which I am so excited for! You can't get much more excited! I don't think i have ever been so excited for Christmas Break. This life is just so stressful. ArG!! I never realized how tough finals week would be till it just hit me in the face!!
But hey I am finally getting over being sick. That is a huge relief! On Sunday I am singing in church with my roommate and it was so hard trying to practice when I was sick! So I a pretty excited for that!
I don't really know what else to mention about my life but i'll post some pictures of me and Kayla decorating the apartment!!

So this last week at ward prayer I volunteered to lead the opening song. So I was getting involved in church and was liking the fact that faces were starting to become more familiar to me!
After ward prayer ended I was walking out with Mellisa and Dallas when the bishop called my name. He told me he was glad to hear my testimony earlier that day, and that DeAnna was a great relief society president. He laughed and told me that it was in the blood! He knew just who to call next year. I laughed and I told him I was glad to finally meet him and quickly left for home. So, I was safe! Because it is so late in the semester I figured I was pretty much safe for getting a calling.
Well, about an hour ago was sitting in my kitchen when my phone rang. It was a member of the bishopric. was calling to have an interview with me over the phone! It was about a calling that they were in desperate need of. I was wondering what random calling would be so desperate. He went on to explain that he saw that I lead the music at ward prayer on Sunday and had mentioned that I had been a part of choirs(on my get to know you form). He then asked me if I would be willing to be the ward choir director. I was shocked! I know that I can do this but I am so scared! I love to sing but I wouldn't say I am all that great. I was not expecting that call at all! I was thinking something with fhe or linger longer stuff! I would have expected a call to be part of the choir instead of the head of the choir! So we will see how this goes!

Halloween was a lot of fun this year! We had a work party about a week ago and I went as an egyption. I also have some fun pictures of me my friends Kayla and Alyson! And then yesterday I dressed up as a black cat for work because it was the easiest thing to do and was still cute! When I got home from work my roommate and her friend Kada were getting ready to go to some parties. So lucky for me I was already dressed up. I just added my pink Boa and touched up on some make-up! We hooked up with some friends and headed to a party called the "yell"(it was at a church) and then we all came back to our place for a party with my other roommate(and her friends). It's a really good thing we have two couches because we had so many people at our apartment! So it was just a lot of fun! I am making a ton more friends now that I have switched apartments!

So, I am now in my new apartment and am loving every minute! I don't dread going home anymore. I like going home. I have made good friends with my roommates and have made a lot more people. It's a very social place! Oakridge is a lot better than I expected. People just come and knock on our door! It's just a lot of fun. My new roommates are Sandra and Mellisa. Sandra's cousin Dallis comes over all the time just to hang out with all of us. He calls mellisa lizard and I got the nickname flounder from him.(he tried to do foo foo but I told him no way) So here is just a little update on how great it is to be out of my old apartment! ps. I have a picture of me and my new roommates in the slide show!

So I have decided that I don't really want to major in history. I really just want to teach and history was one of the only things I could do. If I had my wish, I would teach Home Economics or TLC. So I decided to change my major. This is a major that will help me be a mom as well. That is my main goal in life but sometimes that won't always happen at the right times. It is also smart for me to have a major AND enjoy it. I am still working on what it's called but I believe it's called home economics and consumer education!

I am still a resident of 18D and will continue to be until the end of this year. It turns out that I will have to pay two hundred dollars to switch and Linzy has decided that she doesn't want to anymore. Oh the joy! I am optimistic about the whole situation though. I am still getting along with them all. I am starting to get to know Nicole more these days and am excited for my ward. So although I am still in this lovely apartment I have changed my attitude about it all and decided that it's not going to stink and be a dread all year. I have been in a lot better mood these last few days now that I have started to like my apartment. YAY!!
