in review...

Oh my goodness. It's been awhile. Like a really long while.

So the semester in review.....

Well right before school started I went to Illinois to make friends with these children. They were pretty cool. And I FINALLY got the see the Bean!! I don't know how many times I have been to Chicago and never seen the Bean. But we made it happen this time.

Then school. The semester really wasn't too bad which I'm definelty (I still have no idea how to spell that word) okay with. I'd say it was a pretty good way to end my last semester of classes before student teaching cause I have a feeling that that's going to be pretty crazy. AND......remember how I've wanted to go to Chile for the past forever........And I was actually going to go..........not anymore. I got into a [minor] car accident and then 4 days later my brother got into a [not so minor] car accident. So even though I'd already made my decision that I wasn't going to be able to go that pretty much confirmed that. So sadly I will be in Logan allllllll winter long. PS the brother is fine.

These were my roommates.

Emphasis on the the were part. They all graduated and one got married this semester. Congratulations to them!!

Lots of other fun things happened this semester. In no particular order...friends, football, new job, food, volleyball, road trips, food, Halloween, cookies, basketball, mission reunion, backpacking, food....and maybe I could remember more things if I had written this sooner.....

But. Friends- they're cool.
Football- so much football in my life. I don't play, just do a really good job of pretending to know what's going on during the game.
New job- I quit the Admissions Office my first week of school because I started working at some of the schools in Logan. Now I am quitting that job because of student teaching and its sad. Sad because I liked it and sad because I won't be making any money.
Food- Wow. Lots of food. Good food.
Volleyball- I play volleyball now. No I don't think you could say that I'm any good but I think I have a pretty killer underhand serve and don't tell me not to kick the volleyball.
Road Trip- Took a road trip to Idaho.
Halloween- was fun. I was a cheerleader. Go team!!
Cookies- I like to make cookies.
Basketball- I'm really horrible at basketball. But the Aggies aren't!!!
Mission reunion- Got to see lots of people. It was fun. I heart Puerto Rico.
Backpacking- Went with the family, and I got to go hiking for class one time.
and...more food.

At this time I don't have anything profound or controversial to post. Just know this:

Today at the stop sign I was waiting for the light to turn green....
Walking into work I observed that there are 8th graders getting more action than me....

i heart summer.

Well hello there! It's only been.....FIVE months since I have bothered to write in this thing. How sad. Well fear not. I shall let you all know what I have been up to this lovely summer.

Once upon a time I went to Puerto Rico and it was the most amazingly cool, legit, awesome, exciting etc. thing that I have done. Like I said the last time....that I write I didn't think I would ever get to go back. But it happened!! Some of the highlights include but are not limited to: the beach, the weather, the window cave, the beach, people!!!, the food, Culebra, the beach, Old San Juan, the food, people!!, the Indian cave, the beach, the food, and last but not least- pina coladas. I think that about covers it....yup, mmhmm. Here are a few photos to prove the awesomeness I experienced while I was there.

I feel like that is pretty good. I've a lot more of course but I'll just share these.

And then the rest of the summer happened. I was working full time. In a very, very small office space. Scanning things. Scanning and more scanning. There was some good times though. I moved. That also happened. Pretty much just moved down the street. So exciting.

So I promise there were more adventures other than work for the rest of the summer. I went camping with the fam. That's always a good time. I also went to Chicago, then to Idaho, and backpacking. And school started sometime during all that. And that's not really worth discussing.....

And so those were some of the exciting things I did this summer. I hope yours was super great too!!!

Can. Not. Wait.

It has officially been the best  morning of the semester. My first class was cancelled. Awesome. I didn't really sleep in cause it seems that I can't do that anymore. I get up at the same time everyday minus Saturday. So I always wake up at the same time. But that's okay cause I didn't have to get up and start getting ready and all that blahness. Instead I actually did some homework. Gasp! Yup. Homework in the morning. Then I cleaned the kitchen. Also doesn't sound to exciting but it needed to be done. So I cranked the music up. I think that's why I enjoy cleaning the kitchen. Good excuse to listen to my music at unnecessary volumes.

The weather. I believe. Is slowly but surely warming least I am telling myself that it is.

O M G. Did I tell you that I am going to Puerto Rico??? Cause Oh My Goodness I am!!!!!!!! In May after school gets out. You know when you are excited about something and you feel that excited feeling in your stomach. Pretty have that feeling anytime I think about it. Which is pretty often. I AM SO EXCITED. I can hardly stand it. PS I served my mission there. Hence the reason I am so ecstatically excited to return. I will get to see some people AND go to the beach!!!!  I'd probably have to say that's probably about 50% of the conversation is about between me and my roommate. There are four of us going and it is going. to. be. a. BLAST. Once again, I can hardly stand it. We found an awesome deal on tickets flying out of Vegas. Yes you think that is crazy. BUT. Roommate has a natural gas car. So it will actually be a lot cheaper. And four people to split up the cost. It's going to be epic. That's all I can say. Epic.

Wanna know my favorite songs as of yesterday? I knew you would.

Helena Beat- Foster the People
Next to Me- Emeli Sande
My Racing Thoughts- Jack's Mannequin
Who's That Boy- Demi Lovato
Sick of You- Selena Gomez
Welcome Home, Son- Radical Face

They're all great. Go listen.

I don't think there has ever been a more unmotivated semester of school in my life. Like extremely unmotivated don't even care. I forget that things are due or forget to print stuff out....or I just decide that I don't care and do a really crappy job on it. Yup. Sad. But true. But Spring Break is here!!! Well almost. I have to work tomwowm and go to a class (Which I had the option to write a paper so that it was done and out of the way. Did I do it......please. Of course not.)

I have a new hobby. Oh yeah. O. M. G. I am going to Puerto Rico!!!!!!!! Is that not the most exciting new that you have heard this year. I seriously can. not. wait. Pretty much it has been consuming my thoughts for the past few days. We bought out plane tickets and so it is official as official can be. Back to my new hobby. Looking for hotels. Only this is better. Vacation rentals. Like condos and stuff. There is some way killer awesome deals out there. I'm still searching for somethings but I have found some awesome stuff. I don't think I will ever stay in a hotel again. But seriously I am so excited. It is going to be so awesome to get to go back!

So I am a Sunday School teacher. I got called last week or something. I have never taught a Sunday School lesson. Right? You can't believe it. But it's true. I have to teach on Sunday....gahhh. Good thing no one will be there since it's Spring Break/I am now committed to be here all weekend so that I can work on Monday. Is it sad to admit I didn't even realize we were in the Doctrine and Covenants? For some reason I thought we were doing the Book of Mormon? Oh well. And tomwowm is Friday. Which means I have like 2 days to prepare this thing, which let's be honest I probably wouldn't have done it anyways but still...

One of my roommates is getting married next week so we had a bachelorette party last night. It was pretty awesome. We went to Le Nonne this amazing Italian place. So delicious. Then we got henna tattoos. We felt like that was pretty awesome for a party like this.

They turned out soooo way cool. There was some other ones that we super cool to. Like zebra stripes and so cool flowers but this is all I took pictures of. It was a way fun night. Tonight was also awesome because I got a free redbox and free steamed milk at the gas station. Cause I don't like the hot chocolate. And now I need to go do the dishes before I got to bed because they are kind of driving me crazy.

thoughts on the oscars...

Oh hey. So I've just been watching some of the Oscars. Cause I don't have cable. But Hulu is awesome and has the whole things on there. I was watching a few parts. The Les Mis song was way cool. And Jennifer Lawrence fell. We all heard about that. Did you see that Hugh Jackman went over to see if she needed any help. Isn't he just the greatest? And aren't these shows  just so great. All the celebrities giving themselves awards. I'm not complaining I enjoy it. And...I think those are all my comments on the Oscars. Love looking at all the dresses. I would really like to see Silver Linings Playbook.

I should get off the couch now and go to the gym....
