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!!!
