The one where it's halloween!

I thought in honor of a day where you can be whoever you want to be; a surgeon, a rastafarian, a muggle, you name it you can be it-that I would post some pretty school stuff. (or at least cute) So I thought the drawing of the pumpkin was cute so therefore it made the post. This one to right was so cool, with all the little leaves but then it was beaten out by this one. It was carved out by a laser, we're talking a laser here! Apparently it's supposed to be some death star thing but whatever, the cool part here is the use of a laser.

Now on to other things... like this wall of carved pumpkins, all done by one man. Way cool, although the laser one is still better. But then I came upon this one, and i thought it just might beat out the laser one, but the fact that it almost looks fake made it come in second.Come on though, who doesn't love a princess pumpkin.

*For these pictures and others type-clip art pumkins, cute jack o lanterns, or carved pumpkins into google image.

Now for costumes!

                              but this one is my favorite-tetris! i wanna do this one year!
shower scrubbie!

another good one was the youtube video, way funny. but this is where i will end.

The one where i shall chronicle a typical wednesday

mostly because i have nothing better to write, except for the fact that my grampa's going n for knee surgery today.

Okay, wake up at like 6:30/6:45, pick an outfit, brush my teeth, get dressed, do my make up and hair, grab my backpack and purse(but today I had to grab an extra pair of shoes and an umbrella cause it's raining). I aim to be out the door by 7:30.
I walk to school sometimes stopping at the carriage cafe for breakfast, consisting of bacon, hash browns and/or a bagel. I'll make my way to the school and to the admissions office, cause work starts at 8.
I work for 50 minutes, and I'm off to class with four of my closest friends; Devon, Sam, David, and Chase. English 101, oh what a joy. I'm there for four an hour and then I head back down to the admissions office and our staff meeting starts at 10.
I work from 10-1, doing anything from posting and proofing transcripts, answering calls, sending out info packets, giving tours, deferring students or discontinuing students, to shredding files.
Then lunch, most likely at the carriage cafe, commonly referred to the crappe cafe, then I book it to class with another six of my closest friends; Sarah Beth, William, Mark, Jordan, Jonathan, and Bruce. For the most stimulating class, Microeconomics. Then a half hour to socialize.
At 3 I'm back to work and I'm there til close-5. Then I do whatever the heck I feel like doing.

The one with an international agenda

I tried English, like from England, chocolate for the first time. It wasn't my favorite, the chocolate tasted funny but it was till fun!

Monday, September 21, 2009

The one where you don't understand, these are sister johnson shoes

So I was trying to explain these shoes to my friend chase, and that's where today's title comes from

So really these are the coolest shoes ever, because they remind me of sister johnson back home. I have Ms. Napier shoes as well, I had two pairs until i wore out my flip flops so they had to go to flip flop heaven. So I name shoes after people they remind me of, well really only these pairs but whatever. Okay the end of this post!

The one where today was a good day, a really good day.

It started with me waking up, and getting ready pretty easily and even out the door early, which is no easy feat. I usually go through two or three outfits, cause I never like what I pick out. Then I brushed my teeth, did my hair, and make-up. Grabbed my backpack, purse and water bottle-leaving a full 5 minutes early. Then on my way out of the plaza, on the elevator, a girl was all like I'm driving today, wanna come with me? i would have said no, but if she drove i could eat breakfast, but i said yes. In the car, we listened to one of my favorite songs from dirty dancing.

Then I got the very last plain bagel at carriage cafe, toasted it and was on my way to class with my water bottle filled with ice cold yummy water![yes water does have a taste]Then I sat with four of my friends in english. Pretty much did nothing today in class, with really no homework. Then it was off to work

I got to work, saw a friend I haven't seen for ages-fall semester of last year. Then I called an institute teacher, to drop a student so I could get into his class-low and behold he did, so in Book of Mormon II with Brother Meredith. I am so excited, he is such a good teacher. I tried to explain how to Chase and I couldn't even describe it, I just knew I was supposed to be in that class. So then I worked and worked.

I grabbed lunch, a chili bread bowl, and was off to microeconomics. I really like that class, I love micro thanks to my high school economics teacher. My friend, Mark, transferred into that class and kept me awake. It's not that I was bored but I was so tired, he kept making fun of what we were talking about. At the end of class the teacher was so nice as to tell us the homework I did, was in fact not due today but on monday-double hooray for no homework!

Then I was back at work, listening to pandora and updating my blog to pass time. The back to school Vista Dance is tonight and I'm way pumped. Life is good!

the one when i notice my surroundings more

First let me say that I am usually late, for almost everything but for some reason I was, Heavenly Father obviously wanted me there, early to church this afternoon, by a record breaking 15 minutes. Men were moving chairs, men-sounds strangely awkward but that's what they are, maybe it's just the fact that I'm an adult now and I'm adjusting to that fact. It was nothing out of the normal but for guys who knew almost nobody but were asked to help, dropped their conversations, everything to help. I thought to myself "You can see the measure of a man when he rises to the duty of his Lord." A smile came to my face seeing the love of the God head portrayed in such a simple act.

Maybe I judge to easily, I in fact know I do, but I'm working on it. But I somewhat digress. The bread had been passed along with all the water that was prepared but we were short a few, what a good problem to have. But again I'm getting ahead of myself, what are you going to do with me? So when the priesthood holders separate to pass the sacrament most of them come into the Multi-Purpose Room while one or two go into the Commons Room, which means that the two in the commons room always finish last. Some of the others will go and help the two finish, and I don't know how to describe it but maybe this will can see that passing the sacrament is a little more to them. But most of these brethren sit there impatiently waiting, you could say that their faces show passing is a chore, keeping them from sitting with someone. The impatient rushing to the table to finish their chore, while the one's on the Lord's time walk slowly, keeping the spirit. Now back to the water running out, four stand at the table impatiently waiting for the two missing to show. Minutes are passing making them tap their feet with more consistency, when they appear with two full trays of water. The water is then blessed, passed and returned to the table. When the two came you could see the humility wash over the face of those who had been impatient. And again I thought "You can see the measure of a man when he rises to the duty of his Lord," adding this time "whether it is moving chairs your first week in the ward or helping all in the room partake of the sacrament even though your assignment is over." Now to the point of my opening statement, maybe what I saw is not what they were showing, but it's what I saw.

Things don't always go the way you want them to; you like someone-they like someone else, you want to be a primary teacher-you're an assistant nursery leader, you want to wear your jeans-but you have to work, etc. The point being, sometimes the Lord has a different plan for you, sometimes it will break your heart, disappoint you-but He knows best, and one day you'll see why He moved you that way.

The final part of this saga, the sunday school lesson this week was sealed for time and eternity-a lesson I wasn't especially thrilled to hear about, considering it's just another way to tell us that the Lord wants us to multiply and replenish the Earth. But I went, because a friend was inspired to tell me that he was quoting me-which meant I had to go, because I didn't know what he was quoting. What I said wasn't important but the line he closed the lesson with was. "He will help you to find the individual who is perfect for you, not perfect, but perfect for you"

The one with a reminder

Life is wonderful.
Love is all you need.
Friends make life worth living.
Family never goes away, no matter how far apart you are.
The Church is true.
The priesthood is restored and it is on the earth.

Since August 25, 2004, August has brought ups along with downs. My brother Nathan left the earth that day, he was 8. Then, I remember thinking how could my Heavenly Father do this to me, to my family. Now, I know that he was teaching me, teaching my family, teaching my friends. We may not understand everything, nor do we need to because our Heavenly Father does and that's enough. This year on the date I was with friends, at a retreat for the group that made me, for the first time in my life, feel like I belonged. Made me feel like I was part of something and could make a difference. But even with this feeling I couldn't completely take my mask off, one I had tried so hard to keep up since my brother left us. But with friends, a teacher, a role model and the priesthood it was shed. This year had been the hardest for me, being the first year without my family. I didn't know how I would make it through the day but with their love and support I made it. And I will be forever grateful for their presence in my life.

The one where i technically start something new

Today was a first, a big first. Today I started my job, a desk, a sign in-on multiple accounts, a number, an access card-the whole sha-bang! I've volunteered in the office before so things weren't way hard but it's still amazing that I'm getting paid to do this. So, maybe I should tell you where I work-the admissions at the college I'm attending. I did lots of tedious work today, but I have to start somewhere! I loved the environment! I feel so lucky to have this job and work with people I love, okay well some of them I only like but i'm working on it okay!?!

When I used to help out in the office I could do somethings, mostly answering phones and questions but now I can pretty much do anything I need to to help someone, although I am still asking for help. It's like the more I can do, the more I have to ask for help. I love the admissions office! If you're interested in the Business College, call me and i'll help you apply!

The one where it's normal for me

I don't know about others but almost anything in a movie can get me crying, no joking. I'm almost embarrassed to see heart wrenching movies in public because of how much I know i'll cry but i digress.

After a quick trip out to East Freaking Nowhere to check on a house i'm house sitting at 6 in the morning so i'd have enough time to make it back for my overnight trip to troy, alabamba my brother will turned to The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. I didn't sit down and watch with him but i was in and out of the room, looking for my camera charger only to have no luck, i saw parts of the movie. As I walked in once I had to stop. The Narnian army had gone to the castle and were fighting, I was stopped as I saw one animal, don't ask me what it was I couldn't tell you, was holding up the gate so that other could get out. And once he had fallen from the arrows that it him, soldiers were stuck unable to get out, and had no choice but to stay and fight to their death. The silent looks between them told a story too long for a single movie. The one agony, courage, honor, sadness, thankfulness. Those soldiers could have been mad and tried to escape they fought, they fought for what should have been and would be. I don't know why it hit me so hard but I was stuck watching it unfold, crying and wishing they didn't have to feel that. Maybe it was knowing the feeling, wanting so badly to change what had just happened but knowing you never could.

Looking for something else this time I walked into the living room just as the movie was ending. All the people gathered, looking at the tree, listening to Caspian. Seeing people leave all they had behind for a better life, and then the Kings and Queens leaving and going home was i don't even know. But i was holding it together until The Call by Regina Spektor started playing. The people leaving reminded me of the pioneers, they left with nothing but the clothes on their back and only with the promise of a better life. And then as Edmund, Susan, Peter and Lucy were leaving I knew what it was like, especially for Peter and Susan, leaving behind what feels like home but isn't for the place where you are supposed to belong. Saying goodbye forever.

I know this is stupid but this is who I am, this is who God meant me to be-at least in someways. I would expound but I'm leaving for youth conference [as a chaperone] in a few and i still have to get ready

The one with a confession

Okay so if you really know me, you'll know I was addicted to the bachelor last season. I mean like hardcore, watched it, loved it, talked about it. And even though I wish Melissa[i want to be her bff sooo bad] was the bachelorette this season, I am watching Jillian find her soul mate. Okay but I have to admit there are some guys on the show that every time I see them I say to myself 'I'd date that' and the list is
  • Ed-Chicago, IL
  • Mathue-Wichita, KS [sent home]
  • Jake-Dallas, Tx
  • Simon-Bradford, England [sent home]

The one where it is the time for catch up!

Life has been busy...more like I haven't made time to blog, sorry about that! But I'm catching up now. Caryn had a birthday that I was invited, I had so much fun! It was at the spaghetti factory in trolley square. Then I rushed my butt over to the conference center for josh's mission call. Our friend jason works on the cleaning crew for the conference center and pulled some strings for him. It was amazing to be in the hall of the prophets as he opened it, and as far as jason's supervisor knows he is the only one who has opened his mission call in the hall of the prophets. acting finals, emily and i did a scene from clueless. i had so much fun and she wasn't to bad of a partner. I went to a sister missionary prep session. I met this really cool girl named Patience Bush, she's way freaking cool! And then when I flew home we sat next to each other on the way home. We had so much fun talking and sleeping on each other. I had moved everything the day before and hadn't gone to bed until the wee hours of the morning. FORMAL! Jason asked me to give him a reason to go to formal, jason is kinda * right above the star. I tried to give him other reasons and then it hit me, ask him ifi could be his reason. It worked, we had so much fun with our friends, there were about fourteen of us all thogether. I got to see a lot of my friends, they all looked great. Josh tried to dance, he actually did pretty well. Will, gosh I trust will a whole freaking lot(he lead me blindfolded through a mouse and trap maze). Candace got asked by our friend david to formal and it was so sweet, she looked beautiful! Jason thought he would be finny and take a picture of me while I was dancing. Mark, what else can I say? Adella and Jenn in the background def made the picture. Jenn, I freaking love her! She is amazing, she is such an example to me, I want to be like her when I grow up. There's the end of the catching up!

The one with questions of a teenage college student

  • What do you do when your best isn't good enough?
  • What do you do when the guy that you would fight for can't even see you standing there wanting him to see you?
  • What do you do when the person you thought would be your best friend hurts you so bad that getting up in the morning is harder than you ever thought possible?
  • What do you do when you don't want to go to bed because that's another day you have to wake up to, put on a face that everything is okay, and not let anybody know how hard it is to live 1,919.92 miles away from you family with no friends that you can turn to?
  • What do you do when that drive you had, the the drive you can't remember not having, leaves?
  • Why does my family feel like they have to keep things from me, like I'm some kind of child. I know what's going on-just FREAKING tell me.
  • Why do people think they know how I feel?

The one where I go to BC Idol!

To celebrate the end of elections the school put on BC idol. It was so much fun. Ben and Chad Truman came up to be our opening act. They were so good and they're in a contest right now. Go listen to their song and then vote. My Idol, Mark Ashley. He wrote the song he sang and he sounded amazing. These are the most of the other contestants. Heinrich, the one on the top right, won the thing. And the ones on the bottom right are brother and sister. And the brother is in my accounting class.

The one with a chick flick review!

So my gramie and I watch some tv, okay a lot, when I go up there on the weekends. And because this is America we see a lot of commercials for movies coming out and we always say something to this effect: "that look's really good, i wanna see it!" But do we? the answer was no until yesterday. We went to see he's just no that into you, so good-loved it! It was really fun to see how all the characters were interrelated. You can't help but fall in love with all of them, and not to mention it's a GREAT cast. I definitely recommend this to everyone! Can't wait to get the soundtrack, and movie! [great present idea for any occasion]

The one when the bear has a name

The winner is Sean Farris, who technically didn't comment but did talk to me in person. Amelia is his daughter's name. Jane comes from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Cause I feel like I have a lot in common with the eldest bennet sister and I wish I had someone who I really trusted who could be my elizabeth.

The one when I am sick!

I feel bad I haven't updated in a couple of days and I probably won't do anything blog worthy for a couple more days either. I have the sniffles and am blowing my nose every five seconds. My head hurts and my lips are cracking and I can't sleep so...I will be in bed as much as possible because this finicky weather is helping any.

The one where he asks, everytime he sees me

I don't like change, at all. It's one thing that has always been hard for me, when it comes around I cry. When I moved to Georgia I cried. When I moved back to Utah and my mom left, I cried. When it was announced that President Richards would be taking President Woodhouse's job this semester I cried. I had gotten to know President Woodhouse and the amazing man he is. When I sang for a faculty luncheon here at the school I cried because of the change, President Richards saw me and asked if I was okay. I told him how hard change was for me and since then he has always asked me if there has been any change. Every time, no matter if it's just in passing. Things have changed a lot this week already. President Richards was the speaker in devotional this week and I really enjoyed his talk, after I went up to thank him and he asked. I said it's been hard but I'm trying to get it through me (a phrase that was introduced to me by my favorite professor of all time-Brother Adrian). He said everything will work out when God wants it to(or at least that's what I heard). President Richards is possibly one the greatest men to walk the earth today. Even here at the BC where he has about 1,400 students under his care he knows me. He cares about me and knows my name. He reminds me that my Heavenly Father knows my name, cares about me and loves me. That's one thing that always amazes me, he has all these children to know and care about and I don't get left out. I don't get pushed aside for someone else, I get time too.

The one where the bear needs a name

See this cute bear in front of you? Yes the cute little girl bear, well she needs a name. I already have her but I'm changing her name, do to unforeseen circumstances. So here are the rules...

1-it must be a girls name

2-it can not be my name or your name

if i pick your suggestion i might just make you something, treat or craft(-depending on your proximity to me)

p.s. i'm looking for a new font tell me if you like this one

The one where 'you can have new clothes on a college budget'

  • Step one: look at things in a new way, like an apron
  • Step two: don't wear it the way you normally would
  • Step three: wear it without looking back!
Totally an apron! Aren't I just amazing? I know! Everyone loved it! And this cute guy even said I looked really nice today, ahhhhhh! p.s. raising the bar anyone?

The one where I go ice skating, again!

Let me set the scene. A young woman sitting in a singles ward, in the heart of Salt Lake, bored out of her mind, looks at the back of the program and sees that FHE is ice skating at the U! I was so excited! Now don't get me wrong but I'm kind of an ice skating snob. I didn't like this place much. By the time we got there, that's a whole other story that...ya know I chose to share. Being the good on time Mormon that I am, I got to the ride meeting place 10 minutes early, okay fifteen, so that I would not make anyone late. CJ kindly offered me and Becca a ride. We were already to go until this girl, who will remain nameless got in, and tried to be all cool with me- seriously...don't! I don't know you and your fake cool attitude is not gonna cut it. Then as we were pulling out of the parking lot dum and dummer said 'we wanna ride' and then once we pulled out of the parking lot told us-you need to go pick up our friend 'Tear-ace-ah' from her house. Dum and Dummer say what? So we went five blocks out of our way to go pick her up and then she made us wait for 15 minutes, okay 1o, for her to get her sorry behind out to the car. Then CJ didn't even know where we were going. So me being the most intelligent one within the drivers hearing range, and I'm so not exaggerating here, had to give directions, plus he was a HORRIBLE driver. So instead of getting there at like 5 til 7 we got there at like 7:30. Needless to say I was p.o.ed. Cause if you know me, you know that I do not have patience. Okay back to the real story here. So the ice once we got there was all shaved up, or whatever so it was way hard for me to skate, plus these skates didn't fit me all that well. So I was a crappy skater. My friend Jeremy, the one with the red hat, pulled me around the rink a couple times so I could have some fun! but now I owe him brownies. Then Becca's friend, David Burton gave us a ride home so we wouldn't have to deal with the crazies in the other car.

The one where what happens in provo stays in provo, unless i blog about it

So at my school, LDS Business College, there is a group of students called Mentors and Ambassadors. We had a retreat this weekend down in provo. We had so much fun. I got to know people that I hope to know better as the semester moves along. I took a good picture of brother adrian, two actually but I only included one in the collage. So late a night after a lot of people had gone to bed, including me they started to make a pyramid so i jumped out of bed and got in on the action.

The one where it's time to orientate!

On wednesday or maybe it was tuesday, I don't remember(and i know that's what i get for not blogging), I got a call from brother adrian-only the coolest teacher ever!!-saying that I was for sure a mentor and ambassador for LDSBC, did you get that sean ;). Needless to say I was WAY excited. The first thing I did as a mentor and ambassador was new student orientation on friday. I loved it, zach and kody were in the same group so it was great to be with them cause they are way amazing. We had about 20 new students in our group, i was gonna say kids but all but like two guys were older than me. Which is why I had been so nervous, here I am 18, it's only my second semester at college and i'm supposed to help these people that know more about life than i do. Can you say intimidating?
(hey i didn't pick the school colors!)
I did a lot better than I was expecting myself to do but still I wish I had said more but whatever, what's done is done. After we did the group breakouts we had lunch and then some of the mentors went to the planetarium, yawn in my opion but then again i don't like science. The others stayed at the school or left. I stayed at the school and helped register students for their classes and help the admissions and registration offices. I really enjoyed it for about the first 20 minutes and then it was boring and complicated and frustrating. The net id wasn't working or the student id wasn't working. I met some really nice people that I hope to get to know better through out the semester.
