Oh My Life

There is so much going on that I want to update about but I don't want this post to be a novel! Here are some highlights!

In two days I will finish my first semester at UVU and my THIRD year of college. I don't feel old enough to be in this stage of life. Looking back at this last semester I am still very happy with my decision to switch. I am also glad that I switched schools when I did. I have made some key connections that I feel will really help me in my photography and what I want to be doing with my life.

I was so close to getting my 4.0 this semester. My web design class was the determining factor. I had a high B in the class, and if I was able to pull of an A on my final exam and project it would tip the scale and I would be set. Well, I got an 82% on my final exam. I don't think I have ever been so bothered with getting a “B” on a test. I was close to the 4.0 though. I guess that is good enough though It's the best semester in college yet.

-I posted some of my final project down below!

UVU vs. USU-
I am still an Aggie at heart, and will always love Logan and that school. UVU is a good school, and I really enjoy what I am learning, but it doesn't have the same atmosphere/mood that USU has. I miss Logan and my life there, but I am happy where I am.

I am learning so so much. I have been shadowing my teacher who is VERY smart and talented. I have absolutely loved it. I shadowed him last week for a wedding and a senior pictures shoot, and he paid me fifty bucks! He is also going to have me help him this summer on senior pictures. SO excited. Life is real good in this area. I still have a long ways to go but I am ready for it.

I am moving into my summer apt tomorrow! I will be living with Brooke and Nikki. Happy days!

I am looking for a job again. Goodwood kinda worked but it isn't going to be enough. So, I am looking for another job! Any ideas?

So, it is still kind of a novel, but this is the shortened version. I still have more I could write about, but I am guessing more than half of you are really only going to skim over the post anyway. So, life is good, and I am just trucking along :)

PS- I love our family, and I appreciate the advice I am given. I am not saying that having opinions is bad. Most often I really do want to know what people opinions are. It's when I have made a decision that I feel is right, and people try to convince me to do other wise. I know everyone is really just trying to help me out. So, I am not saying I don't want it. It is when I get different advice from everyone it starts to add up and it's a lot. LOVE you all :)

Final Photography Project

For my final in my photography class I was supposed to create a story in 3-5 images! Keira was a sweetie and helped me out. She's a cute little model!

Photo Story- A Daisy's Story!

This is another Photo Story that I am turning in for extra credit.

Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family.

Yeseterday- I wouldn't say that yesterday was a terrible day and I am in a horrible mood, but it wasn't really all that great either. Different trials are going on in my life and I am trying to stay happy through them. There are also the trials that I thought were berried and gone, but are now, not just surfacing, but are completely up and dancing around in the front of my mind.

In addition to all of that, I was reading my friends blog earlier today, and she was telling her story about how her fiancé purposed to her and how it hurt so much while he was gone (mission). As I was reading this I was happy for her, but I also felt sick and anxious. While I was bummed out, and trying to get focused again I came across her next post, and I decided how I wanted to react to the hard things and trials in my life now!


-not in order-

Mom and Dad: They are always awesome but these last few months they have really helped me out.

Siblings: Even though the family is as opinionated as they come I know that they all have my best interest at heart. I got pretty Lucky with the family I was given, and I love them.

Friends: I have some pretty AWESOME friends! I don't get to see all of them, but they are great friends all the same.

School: I absolutely love my major. I will hopefully be getting my first 4.0 in college this semester. There are some classes that really don't apply to what I want to be doing, but I still really enjoy them.

Photography: I have already learned so much in the last three months. It makes me excited to see where it will go.

Provo: Even though I hated the idea of living in Provo again. I have really enjoyed being close the family I have down here. I have also met a lot of great people here.
