Hittin' the slopes!

Some friends and I went snowboarding a few weekends ago at Snowbird and it gave me a reason to not be 100% sour about all of the snow that we were getting back in Provo. It wasn't very crowded, but somehow my friend managed to break his collarbone a few hours after we got there. Strangely it was so sad, but also so funny at the same time... I am not sure if that is even possible, but oh well. And I am not quite sure what is with me and dancing, but I put my headphones in and I would dance all of the way down the hill. My friends were so embarassed of me, they chose to keep their distance. Or maybe they kept their distance because of the hat I was wearing. I haven't completely decided yet... But anyway, I am hoping that the starving students will gather some funds to make it back up the mountain a few more times in this coming semester. Love you mom and dad...

Halloween!!! Time to whip out my signature moves...

Don't ask me how I did it, but I am pretty sure that penguins may now be the sexiest animal ever to walk the Arctic circle! I was a penguin for halloween and if I do say so myself my outfit was pretty clever. A group of my friends and I went to a dance party in our apartment complex (not the most happening thing that I have ever been to, but it got us excited for the rest of the night). Then we went to The Arctic Circle to get some ice cream. The place is so awesome. You choose the cream and toppings that you like and then they mix it up and freeze it with nitrous oxide right in front of you. It gets me every time. Finally, we headed down to the UVU to go the dance that the school was putting on. It was one of the best dances that I have ever been to! There were so many people there and a lot of cute guys... It was an awesome night and I had the opportunity to show off some of my most impressive dance moves. Some of them are getting so famous people are starting to request certain moves. So I just had to whip them out! Most importantly, though, I looked way sweet in my costume.

Hiking the Y in P-Town...

The huge freshman thing to do at BYU is hike the Y and I never did it as a freshman, mostly because I'm dumb, but oh well. My new friends and I hiked up to the top of the mountain and we brought some sparkling cider to celebrate... mostly our friendship I guess... It was hilarious. Unfortunately, sparling cider is really sweet and has a lot of sugar and I guess bees really like stuff like that. What is even more unfortunate than that is that I am deathly afraid of bees. If you know me well, you know the embarassing noises that often are coming out of my mouth. There were a lot of them while we were on the mountain and everyone kept staring at me. Then, as we were leaving the bees came at me again and I freaked out. My camera case rolled down the mountain and I am pretty sure it is gone forever. I know. I'm different. Whatever. It's doing things like this that makes me not so popular at school. Oh well. I love it.

I Did It All By Myself... I Made Friends!!!

I am so happy right now. I just got back from a dance party in our apartment complex and I totally made friends. I didn't think that I knew how, but I branched out all on my own and I met some boys that are way awesome... one of them is actually the brother of the boy that I stalked last year. So that is way funny, but also so weird because I had to tell him how I knew his name and where he was from and that his brother was a cheerleader... Oh well, all in a days work. I guess that is what I get for liking awkward situations!

Don't Ask Me How... Just Know That It Happened!

Okay so I am usually not the kind of person to drop titles or brag about myself, but this time I have to. It's too good! There is this class at BYU called American Heritage and everyone hates it. It is the most failed class at this school and I took the test and I rocked it like no other. I could have started crying if I really wanted to, but that isn't that hard these days, so I didn't. I got a 98%. I don't care who you are, that's awesome! I just can't tell anyone in my class because the class is graded on a curve and I won't have any more friends... but I will get off my soap box now. Just thought you might want to know.

We didn't start the fire... but this time we actually did!

Okay so I love dancing and last weekend we heard that there was a dance at the club on center street, but before we went we had to do something to get us in the mood. So while we were waiting for our friend, we pulled into the parking lot and had a little dance party of our own to see which dance moves were going to work best.
When we got to center street it was such a joke. There were like two people in the club, some people outside and a bunch of eigth graders. It was so sketch, but we were in the mood so we went in anyway. There were these platforms in the middle and so we started dancing and the people just started flowing in. The party was bumpin' within 15 minutes. We just looked around and said "Yeah, we did this!"
It was one of the best dances I have been to in a long time. What made it so good you ask? Oh, it was the black guy that taught me how to dance and the people that I danced with when they weren't looking... It is my signature move; just ask anyone from my high school. It's hilarious!
...I can't get the video posted but I will try to get it up soon.

My First BYU Football Game... I wish I knew what was going on!

I decided that I should probably post some good things that are going on in my life right now so that people don't think that I am living in Provo all by myself sulking everyday of my life. I am having so much fun... thanks to my roommate who pulls me away from the books on the weekends.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to my first BYU football game and it was so exciting. BYU kids are so funny, but it is so cool becasue it is almost like the whole town shuts down. Everyone is at the game!
We have really good seats in the south endzone... too bad they were wasted on me. I don't really care about football and I have no clue what's going on, but it is fun to go and watch the chearleaders and cougarettes and pretend like I know the fight song. If you know me though, you know the real reason why I go to any sporting event is for the concession stands and Cosmo. Cosmos's my boy and pretzels with cheeze and cotton candy is where its at.
Anyway, me and my roommate road the beachcruisers to the stadium and joined our friends in the stands... and the crazy boys in front of us. They totally mosh whenever we score. It was a great experience and I can't wait to go again this weekend to get some cotton candy...

Where Would We Be Without The Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Anyone who has talked to me in the last month or so knows that I have had some rough days recently... I am fine. Don't worry about me, but college life can be very stressful at times.
I am will openly admit that I am a very stubborn person and I don't really like people to help me, but recently I have had no choice but to rely on something much greater than myself. I know that I have a Heavenly Father that is aware of me and has a plan for me. He only wants for us to be happy. I have seen his hand in my life. I have been praying for some things for quite some time now and in the past couple of weeks I have received answers to those prayers... in unexpected ways I might add.
I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It makes sense. Conference this past weekend was amazing and I know that those men are called of God. So many talks spoke straight to me. I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes:
"Come what may, and love it!"
"Find joy in the journey!"
"Continue to persevere in the pursuit of the most precious prize!"
"Minimize personal demands and maximize sincre selflessness!"
"I don't know a lot, but I know enough!"
"Simplify your life!"
and most importantly...
"Have faith, hope, and endure! God has a plan for you!"
I love this gospel. I know it's true. It has brought me a lot of comfort these past couple of weeks. I also wanted to thank everyone who has been there for me when I needed them recently. Mom and Dad, I love you guys and I miss you so much! Craig, thanks for letting me cry on you. And Jami, oh my goodness, I am so glad that you called me. It was good to talk to someone who understands everything that I am feeling.
Oh my gosh, I love life!

YES on Prop 8!

I am so excited about the upcoming election. This will be my first year to vote and I want to make my voice heard. One of the most important issues on the ballot this year is Prop 8. Who would have ever thought that we would have to vote on the definition of marriage? One man and one woman join together in marriage to create a family. I have nothing against two people of the same gender having all of the same civil rights as a man and a woman legally married, but we can't ignore the fact that a man and women can create children and two people of the same gender cannot. Call it Heavenly Fathers plan or just simply biology, but it is not the same and we cannot pretend that it is, no matter how much a same gender couple loves each other. Children deserve to be raised in a home with a mother and father. Two mothers cannot make up for a missing father and two fathers cannot make up for a missingg mother. Unborn children have a right to both a mother and a father. I urge everyone to think about the issue of Prop 8 seriously and decide where you stand on the issue. This ammendment does not only effect those of the same gender. Without a doubt in my mind, this ammendment will effect not only what will be taught in schools to our children, but also our religious rights for generations to come. Check out the following links if you are still not sure, but remember to get out and vote on Nov. 4. Yes on 8!!!

Sometimes life sucks, but it's gotta go up sometime... right?

This last week was rough! It was really rough, but I guess that is the beauty of college life. Stress and tears and laughter, along with some life changing realizations pretty much sums up my life right now and the worst part is is that my parents were gone for two weeks and I couldn't even talk to them. I missed them and love them so much!
This week was crazy but today I am relieved to say that I finally turned in my nursing application. It is out of my hands now and all that I can do is sit and wait. They tell us in November if we get in and I am stressing out. I will let you guys know if I get in, but if I don't then please don't ask. It might be a sensitive subject for a while.
But anyway, that is not why I wanted to blog today. Last night I went to the Haunted Forest and I came out with with some physical and psychological battle wounds. I have this sick addiction with scary things and it is a total love-hate relationship. The first chainsaw that I encountered, I took of running and totally booked it into the girl in front of me and I fell flat on my face. I had dirt in my mouth, stickers in my hair and my feet were bleeding. It hurt really bad. Then, we hit the clowns and that is the one thing that I just really can't handle. I made the mistake of walking through them and saying, " I really just can't do clowns. I can't do clowns" and this clown followed me around and kept yelling things at me. It was so bad. After recovering from that I moved on and another chainsaw man came along. I then made the second mistake of just running past him screaming... my advice: Don't ever do that. He chased me for so long I passed the two other groups in front of us. Then I just had to sit in the dark all by myself and wait for my group.
All in all, it was way fun, but to be honest the frosty and french fries at the end really hit the spot! Fat kid for life!!! Thats right, what now?

Yeah that's right... I'm a model!

So ever since last year I told my roommates that we needed to do a photo shoot and make a calendar to hang in our new and improved living room... I know I may be kind of into myself, but I am working on it. But anyway, we found this really awesome field and if you use your more artistic eye I think that you will see that we kind of made it work. I brought some of our crazy costumes from home to spice things up a little bit and things really got interesting when these random runners showed up and jumped in front of the camera. But by the end of the day it is pretty safe to say that it was way fun and it didn't turn out as white trash as I thought it was going to be!

So let me tell you about my first time...

Clever title I know, but I want to be apart of the blogger craze. Call me trendy, but I want to keep everyone updated on my college experience from the crazy, stressful days that make me cry to the hand holding and romantic dates... or in my case the lack there of. Oh well, but whatever happens I will definitely keep you posted... Literally!
