I have almost made it through another semester. I only have to make it through a week of finals, and I will be done! Yay! I really have loved this semester. My classes are all great (I can say that because my math teacher go fired). This semester has gone by so fast though. It really doesn't' seem like that long ago that I was just moving in.
I have learned a lot too! I made a skirt, pants, and a shirt in my sewing class. I learned a ton of great stuff in my culinary class, and now have an awesome book of recipes! I got to experience first hand a stupid teacher being fired. AND I am most likely going to pass my history class with and A or high B! I love School!
Of course school isn't all about class. The social life this semester has been great. Last year was fun, but not in comparison to this one. My roommates are absolutely awesome; We really get involved in our ward, and have made a lot of great friends. We all get along really well too. I was worried that I would be the third wheel, because they were friends in high school, but it's not the case at all. I got really luck this year!
As for my love life...I am still single. So not much to say there. ha ha
I love my job! I work a lot, but I love what I am doing so it doesn't bother me! I am in the camera room most of the time, which is great.
As the semester has been winding down I have been kinda sad that I only have half a year with my roommates. I have also been trying to plan where I want to live over the summer and next fall. I like having and idea of what I want to do. Well, I was talking to my roommate Melissa, and we were talking about how she hasn't really put much thought into where she wants to live until her boss told her about getting an apartment/house. Melissa really liked the idea, and kept referring to how much fun "we" would have. I asked her if she would want to live together again next school year. She said she definitely would. I am so excited! I love both Melissa and Brooklyn! I also hate the mystery of who my next roommates are going to be. WOOT So, we are trying to get into an apartment/house close to campus. I am not really sure how to go about doing this though. If you have any ideas I would love to hear them. I don't know who to call or even how to find out what would be available.....Any suggestions/advise on housing ideas (even if they aren't a house/apartment)?
Well, this entry is pretty long so I should probably bring it to a close, but I am happy and loving school! YAY! :)

So for the last few weeks at church we have talking about everything that we should be greatful for. It has been a great couple of weeks! So, I decided to share some of the thing that I love, and am so greatful for. Some of course are simple things I am happy I have, but others mean a lot.
I have been pretty homesick lately, and I really miss everyone! With talking about what we are greatful at church, and missing everyone, I really started to thinkg.. And, I love you all! Thanks for everything! I don't think I voice how greatful I am for all that I am blessed with! I also don't say, "I love you" as much as I should. So, here is my way of expressing my love for everyone!
Yeah, I know this is all really cheesey, but it's thanksgiving. AND I am allowed to be dumb, and emotional all I want! :) I hope you guys all have a wonderful thanksgiving!
---PS- Just click on the picture, and you can see the collage of everything I love!

Okay, So I haven't updated in a while! So, this is going to be a long post! A lot has happened! If you don't have time to read it then you can just look at the pictures! :) The first paragraph is really awesome though!
I have decided that I am going to work really hard next semester, and then take next fall semster off! With that decision I have been really undecided about my living arrangements, getting a different job, moving home for the summer, or really what to do with my life! I was really stressed out about the whole thing! I kept trying to make decisions, and nothing seemed to be making me feel better.
I called Sears, got my job back for Christmas, which would have been good because I could come back for the break! But, I still didn't feel good about how my life was planned out. My job for next summer and fall were not set yet. So, I decided to apply for JcPenney, because I could keep that job even after Christmas and work there next summer, and fall.
So, I went in and applied! (I also applied to kiddie kandids but it didn't like the feeling there) So! I turned my application in, and had my interview right away! The interview went REALLY well. Because of my experience they really liked me. I talked about my concerns for staying on after Christmas, and she explained to me that with my experience she was almost positive I would stay on. She also explained to me that she was hoping to hire on an assistant manager. She told me that one of her core employees would be next in line for it, but isn't sure that she will be able to handle it. So, she told me that if she doesn't take that position than it will be ME! How cool! So, everything seems to be falling into place. The relief that my life is in control is wonderful! I just have to wait for my background check to go through and go to the studio for me to put my two weeks notice in for my other job! Cool Huh!
This is the stuff that is just fun!
Well, at the beginning of the year we had an awesome cookie party. So, I decided we needed to have another party. This time my friend Ryan and I put together a pie party! It included a pie eating contest, and everyone bringing their own pie to share! It turned out awesome; there were about forty people there! The coolest part about it all was the fact that I knew pretty much everyone there, and was good friends with them!
Halloween this year was really interesting! I was planning on being a pirate and was looking for a sword at a store up here in Logan when I saw some fairy wings! I got really excited, and decided to change my costume! I went to the fabric store and made my own costume. I found some sheer fabric, sewed it onto a ribbon that I would tie around my waist, and then dangled ribbon all the way around it! The dressing up part was the coolest part of it all!
I had no desire to got the “Howl” on a campus; so, we all decided to go to a party at Hamilton's. It was absolutely terrible!
We started dancing which was fun until there were too many people and the guys were perverts, and danced all creepy. To avoid the dance floor we went to a lounge where there was drinks and food. This would have been fine, but the smell of smoke was so strong that I was getting sick to my stomach. So we went to the entrance, and tried to get fresh air. As we were standing there a guys bumped into me, and started to apologize. He was so drunk. He was breathing so heavy into my face, and the smell of beer was absolutely revolting! Agh! We ended up just sitting on these benches, and watching all the slutty people get more and more wasted. I kept thinking that this is so not my kind of party.
As the party went on this creepy creepy guy came up to us (nearly falling over), and started to explain to us that we were way to sober to be at that party. We all agreed, knowing that we didn't really like being there. He offered us his beer, and when we declined he told us that he used to say the same thing until he realized he was more attractive after a few drinks. We kinda just laughed, and he walked away. I was sick of being there by then, and said we should all just go back and watch a movie or something instead. Everyone was down, so we finally left!!
I would have been totally bummed that my Halloween was lame, but I was just so relieved that that wasn't my usual lifestyle. I left, and was so grateful that I know the truth, and know what it really means to be happy! Oh crazy crazy!
Well, that is the end of my super long update! Here are the pictures!

Hello Family! So this entry is kind of a plea for help! I was contemplating doing study abroad and I decided I should figure out my class schedule for the next few years so I would know when the best time to go would be. Well, as I planned out each semester the realization that I won’t graduate for another 3 ½ years kinda started to bum me out!
Okay so here is my question! With my schedule I have a completely open semester next fall. I would just move up all my classes, but the class schedules won’t allow that. So, I am now contemplating what to do with that open semester. I could put maybe 2 required classes in there and the rest would be extra/fun classes. OH and I decided I would rather spend $8,000 on something other than study abroad. So now; do I make the other semesters a little lighter and put them into that semester and take a few elective classes that I haven’t had an opportunity to take, or Do I just take that semester off and work (up in Logan of course)!! So, if you have any suggestions I would love some more opinions to help me make a decision.
