Recent News...

So it's been awhile since I've posted anything real, rather than just the survey thingys, so here I am! I actually can't think of where to begin....
I guess the biggest thing is that I'm pretty close to 100% sure I'm going to switch majors! I've thought about it a lot and I think Exercise Science is the place for me! I love kids, but I don't know if I love them THAT much ya know? However, by being in Exercise Science, I know that's something I will always love, and a lot! The body fascinates me! And learning about it comes really easily for me! So right now the plan is to get my bachelor's here in that and then go to grad school to become a PA. I may take a year off in between to work, because PA schools are really competitive and they like it when you have some clinical work experience (especially if you have like 3 years!) So I'll try and get some in up here at school and then take a year to do it full time. PA's make really good money, and it's good hours too. So I'll get to be doing all the medical-y stuff that I love with only 6 years of school total instead of 14!
Other than that, more school stuff... I finally got a really good grade on a geography test! 94%! Sure, we got to use a single small page of notes which definitely helped! Also, I'm LOVING my Human Development class! It's fascinating to me! I really look forward to it every week! It's amazing! The teacher is great and while she goes fast, she covers the material all while making it way interesting! She's great and I highly reccomend her class!
Well, I think that's all the big stuff today. I'm off to go run and then go hang out with cute boys! Does it get any better than that? :-)

Stolen From Erin

So I'm bored, I should be cleaning as checks are in half an hour, but oh well. So Erin had this on her blog and I thought it looked fun so I'm doing it too.

Four Jobs I've Had
1. Camp Kiesel! Greatest job EVER!!!
2. Cold Stone Creamery... NOT the best job ever!
3. Texas Roadhouse! Also an amazing job! (I worked at Hungry Howie's at the same time so we'll count them as one)
4. And now I'm an office assistant in my school's Natural Resources buliding. Haha way fun!

Four Movies I've Watched More Than Once
1. Sleepless in Seattle. My very favorite. No question.
2. You've Got Mail. A close second to the first one.
3. Return to Me. Probably third in line.
4. Almost every single Disney movie. Cars and Enchanted are my favorites.

Four Places I've Been
1. Lived in Tucson, Arziona.
2. Now live in Logan, Utah.
3. Love California!
4. I went to Michigan once...

Four of My Favorite Foods
1. I think my very favorite is a really good burger. I highly reccomend: IHOP's, Royal Red Robin burger, the Cheddarburger from Texas Roadhouse, and In 'N Out. I miss it greatly.
2. Pasta. Any kind! My favorite thing is to do the "Create Your Own Pasta" at Maccaroni Grill. But really, I'll eat any kind. Firehouse's Chicken Cordon Bleu pasta is a new love.
3. Pizza! I'm going crazy without Hungry Howie's! They have flavored crust and no one else does! I miss my ham and mushroom pizza on ranch crust!
4. And... oh man I don't even know. I just love food.

Four Places I Want to Visit
1. Europe. Hands down. I am dying to see Greece, London, Ireland, Paris, everything!!
2. I think Africa is next. I would love to go there!
3. Australia would be amazing too.
4. And I really just need to see more of my own country. I've never been to the east coast and I want to! I want to go to D.C. soooo bad! And North Carolina! haha

Four Things I Am Looking Forward to This Coming Year

1. My birthday :-) It's on Saturday, so I don't have to wait much longer.
2. My classes next semester! I think they'll be great! And relatively easy which is nice.
3. Summer. I love summer.
4. Getting married. NOT! Haha that's just everyone's stereotype of Utah college girls... hehe :-)
The end. Enjoy. Steal it if you want to. Haha

Random Things About Me

I have nothing to do, so I decided to blog. Haha and since I really have nothing to blog about, I'll give you some random/little known tidbits about myself. So here goes.
1. I'm a little OCD (or should I say CDO) about alphabetizing. I do it to everything! My movies, my books, my cd's, EVERYTHING is alphabetized!
2. I love Sharpies! I have almost every color, even duplicates of some... They make me happy, and no, not the smell of them, just all the colors and everything :-)
3. I never eat the first slice of bread! Haha not the heel (well that either I guess...) but the first slice after that. I don't know why, that's just how I am.
4. I really love country music! Haha ok maybe that one's not so secret, but I mean I REALLY love it! I can almost always tell what song and what artist it is within just a few measures... Kinda pathetic I know.
5. Also pathetic, is that I know the hymbook really well! Haha you can pretty much tell me any hymn title and I can most likely tell you what page it's on. If not exact, then close. I'm not quite as good the other way, it's harder if you give me a page number and want me to tell you what song it is...
6. I'm a hopeless romantic. I love chick flicks and predictable stories. I know romance and stuff isn't really like that, but I can dream :-)
7. I LOVE the human body! It's fascinating to me! I love learning how all the systems and everything work together to make such a great thing! I love blood and bones and everything! It's amazing!
8. I love quotes! I have pages and pages saved! Whenever I hear or see a good one, I save it. I think they really can have an impact in our lives. They can be very inspirational and effective :-)
9. I've had some pretty sweet injuries and they all have good stories. I've broken both my arms at the same time, had stitches in my face, and hurt (most likely dislocated) both my knees at different times. The stories are kinda embarassing, but funny. If you want to hear them, let me know :-)
10. The 4th of July is my very very favorite holiday! I love fireworks! I love all the patriotism! I love how my town does it. The whole town shows up at the park for food, games, and just fun! I love it!
11. I'm a huge grammar stickler! I ALWAYS use the correct tenses/forms of words and it drives me crazy if I or any other person does it wrong!

And there you have it, 10 little known facts about me. If you want to know more or want any mor explanations, just ask :-)

Weekend Plans

So it's technically Thursday, but tomorrow is the beginning of fall break! (Not really much of a break though, just a 3 day weekend, but still, it's better than nothing!) So the school decided that today we'll have our Friday schedule of classes. Many teachers decided not to have class or to just do review sessions. Geography was just a review day, but of course he gave us one of our extra credit "quizzes." Happy! And then I went to math, but only like 10 people were showing up. I really didn't want to be there so I looked in the book at what we were learning today, and it was stuff I already know how to do. Usually we have a quiz every Friday, but she figured a lot of people wouldn't come today so our quiz is Monday. So what did I do? I went in, gave a friend my assignment to turn in, and I left! So now I'm at work.
This weekend will be interesting, that's for sure. Since it's a long one, almost everyone is going home. I seriously know of like 5 people that will be left in my building! So tomorrow is going to be my 'catch up' day. I'm going to do some hardcore cleaning of my apartment, and work on homework. My goal is to get my paper done that's due Thursday, study for my test that's on Tuesday, and do as much of the math that I can teach myself for the week. I want to be not only caught up, but ahead because it's Homecoming week! There's fun stuff planned for the whole week and not only do I want to go, but I'm on Traditions committee so we're planning all the activities and events and then we all have to be there to kinda help out. It will be way fun, but it leaves no time for homework. So that's Friday. Then on Saturday I get to hang out with my two favorite boys in the whole world again! Haha I'm going to Lagoon with Shawn and Jason and it will be great fun :-)
Not only do I have all that, but since I'm one of the few staying for the weekend, I have a whole bunch to do church-wise! I'm playing the piano in Sacrament (haha I can't play the organ...) and I have to teach Relief Society! So I'm going to be one busy girl these next couple of days!
So, for those of you reading this, have a great weekend! I'll post again after all my adventures, with pictures and everything! Love you all!

A Great Day!

Today was so great! I obviously didn't get a whole ton of sleep last night, but the day went surprisingly well! I stayed awake through class, went to work, and then Institute choir. Finally I got home, ate some mac & cheese, and am now Facebooking/blogging the afternoon away. Really, I have homework, but it won't take long. :-) Then tonight I'll dance the night away at FHE. It will be great fun.
Yesterday was also great. Church was amazing! My friend Erin taught Relief Society and she did an amazing job!! She talked about some letters that Joseph Smith wrote to his wife and family during his times of travel getting the church going. The ones she focused on most were about getting through the adversity and trials we all face in life. I know it was an especially hard thing for her to talk about as she's going through a lot of stuff right now. She did so well though! She had the whole room sharing stories and in tears. It was incredible. Then we went to the Preach My Gospel Sunday school class which was also great! In sacrament, one of my friends spoke and he did a great job. This past summer he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. His whole talk was relating all the warning signs and safety practices in climbing the mountain to the gospel. It was awesome! So overall, it was a very good Sunday!
Well I think that's all for now... oh, and only 18 days til basketball season!!

Yep, I'm Doing It

K well here I am. Blogging. Crazy. I never thought I'd be here. But it seems like everyone's blogging these days so I decided to give it a try. It's late and I should be in bed, but I was determined to come up with a URL name that wasn't already taken.
It snowed today! (Well I guess by now it's yesterday...) but it was beautiful. I love having seasons again! First the fall leaves, and now this. Life is good.
Well as I said, it's late. I have 8:30 class in the morning. I'll add more to this loveliness later. :-)
