I don't like Halloween. Is that weird? I try to get into it every year, but I just can't... I hate spending money on costumes. (I haven't dressed up since I was 12.) I don't love massive huge dance parties with no room to breathe and hundreds of bodies pressed up and sweating against you which is what I feel like the Howl is... I think it's an overrated holiday, (don't even get me started on Valentine's Day. haha) Am I the only one who feels this way?? Sometimes I feel like I am...

It's HERE!!!

We've been waiting since March... After 7 long months... it's AGGIE BASKETBALL SEASON!! The Blue & White scrimmage game is this Wednesday with our first exhibition game on Friday! I. Can't. Wait. I can't wait for the sights, the sounds, the smells... I can't wait for the waiting all day, the new friends, noise. I can't wait for the squeak of the shoes on the court, the pounding on the chairs druing "Crazy Train," the echoing of crazy Aggie fans yelling and chanting 'til their voices are gone. I can't wait for another great season in the Spectrum. I can't wait for a trip to Reno.

I can't wait for this.

One Year Older

And wiser too? We'll see I guess...
What will this year bring? Is 20 really that different than being 19?

9 Days

9 Days... and then we'll be back in our 2nd home of the Spectrum... I can already hear it, see it, smell it... I cannot wait!!

So I have this bat...

I never really have good luck with boys. A lot of it is my fault I think. I'm not very forward. I have a hard time letting them know how I feel. I hate being straight forward about it. I'm not one to go up and say "yeah, I like you."
My best friend on the other hand has had a lot more experience and she's a lot less subtle. I've learned a lot from her and I'm learning more every day. Luckily I have her to turn to when I'm totally confused. Like right now.
For the second time this school year I pretty much straight up told a guy that I liked him. That is so not me.
I turned to her and said "now what?"
"Well," she said, "the ball's in his court. Now you just have to wait for him to throw it back. You're standing at home plate, ready for the pitch."
Thanks girl. You're the best. I like the way you put it.
So I have this bat...

One Year Later

One year ago today- ok, yesterday- I gave in. I became a blogger. I feel like a lot has happened in the last year. I think I'm a very different person. I've grown a lot and discovered a lot about myself. In the last year I have...
*changed my major. twice.
*become more open minded.
*made some amazing friends who have changed my life.
*had incredible experiences.
*fallen in love with The Office.
*become a sports fan.
*fallen and un-fallen for many boys.
*continued to work my way up in leadership roles.
*become a die-hard Aggie.
*set goals, forgotten about goals, reached goals.
*decided where I want to go with my life.
*discovered myself.

Feels So Good!

When I came to Utah State, I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I got here and quickly learned that I had absolutely no idea!

My first semester here I was majoring in elementary education. I love kids, so I thought to myself, 'Hey, why not be a teacher? Sure! Why not?' Guess what? I hated it!

About three-quarters of the way through that semester I got out of that. I switched to exercise science. I'm not huge into working out or anything, but it was health related and would be good for my newest plan, becoming a physician's assistant. I started in the classes, anatomy, sport psychology, etc. and it didn't take long to realize that wasn't where I really wanted to be either. I liked the things I was learning, but I didn't LOVE it. There was no passion in what I was doing. To me, that's the most important thing.

From there, I really struggled. I had zero idea where I wanted to go with my life. And then I realized something. If it's about doing the things you love, why wasn't I? The things I love most are people. I love being with them and I love being involved. I love the involvement and leadership side of my college experience. Well guess what? You can do it as your job! There are two incredible women who work with us as student leaders. They get paid to do the fun part of college forever! I realized that that was what I wanted, no, what I needed to do. I had never felt so good about any decision! Without any hesitation I changed my major, once again, to public relations.

I am now SO happy! Every time I'm in one of my JCOM classes, I feel so good! Even if it's a boring day, I still love it! The things I'm learning are great, my professors rock, and I'm just enjoying it. Life is so good right now :)
