My Thanksgiving Break

So, for Thanksgiving I did a few different things. For the beginning of break I was at Tandy's house (my roommate) and we kinda chilled. We rode horses the first day I was there, stayed at home the 2nd day, went to church the 3rd day, went shopping the 4th day (and celebrated Tandy's birthday). Upon returning home the 4th day, the cows got out, so I went with Tandy and her dad and brother to chase them back in. That was fun :). Well, I really didn't do much. I almost died of asthma before I even got out to where the cows were, and by the time her and I did get there, they were almost in anyway. But it was entertaining. So on the 5th day (Tuesday) Tandy took me to Grace where I met up with my aunt Bridgette. I then went and stayed at her house. That night we celebrated my cousin Kambree's birthday. The next day I went to the senior center to get some service hours in. I got about 2 hours in when I had enough and took my first opportunity to leave. I was working putting pies together for people that had ordered them (there was a lot of pies) and I was working with a bunch of juvenile delinquents who were on probation needing service hours. So it was way weird. Then I went to my grandma's house and mowed her front lawn for her (boy am I SORE!). I then began to cut quilt blocks for her, before heading back to my aunts. I got about 3 1/2 hours of service done. I needed ten. Yep, I got a lot accomplished. I did however get my computer project done. That's a lot of relief. That was a big deal. I still have like 4 papers to write. One due the 3rd, one due the 4th, another due the 5th, and one or two on the 12th. Plus some more assignments in my computer and Book of Mormon class. So I'm gonna be busy for the next two weeks (but then I come home, so I'm excited!!)! Anyway, so on Thanksgiving we ate around 1pm, and then I worked on some homework. Then I went out and went on a 4-wheeler ride. And once we brought my uncle's wife and son back I drove (yep I drove the 4-wheeler for the FIRST time...and I absolutely LOVED it). We went and visited my great grandpa's grave. It was weird, because I went to his funeral when I was 2 and I can still remember standing there, everything seemed to be familiar. So then my cousin and I rode around some more, and then him and I went and visited my great grandma, which was interesting. I got confused quickly, but I pretended to understand. Anyway, so then today (the day after Thanksgiving) I went black Friday shopping. I got up at 3:20am so that we could leave by 4am. It was quite an interesting experience. I got the Christmas present I needed for a sibling, and I got a new flash drive...4 gigs for $9!! That's right, I got a good deal! haha, my old one is about ready to break! So now, I'm home (my apartment in Rexburg) and I'm sick (I got some nasty cold my little cousin Thayne had). I'm miserable, should be doing homework, but I'm seriously considering sleep instead. I can do homework tomorrow and Monday, and Tuesday before anything is due...right? I know it's gonna really stink once I get into it..but right now my body just needs to sleep. So I'm gonna take some nighttime cold medicine (ruin my REM sleep in the process--I learned about that in Psychology!!), and go to sleep! I'll do my homework in the morning. Since it's a little after 7, I'll probably get up around 8. It'll be a nice long sleep :) So goodnight world :)

So, I've been thinking! (surprised?) I was remembering all the fun times when I was little and me and my cousins, and even Alissa and Stephanie and Josh would play down in the playroom in grandma's old house, and I remembered the glowing eye ball bouncy-ball! It was such good times. And then we all started growing up. I remember Daniel leaving and returning from his mission, and I remember Josh being on his mission, and Alissa going to school. Stephanie graduating the same year (if not a month after) as Tyson, and Tyson going on a mission, Stephanie going to school. Sam graduated and left for his mission. Tyson came home, Sam came home. Alissa has graduated school! Josh and Alissa, Stephanie and Tyson have all gotten married (and I used to play with them!! :D) and now I'm graduated from H.S. and in college, along with Randall, Rocio, Tonya and soon to be Sam and Charity! It's absolutely insane how quickly time flies! The next 3 1/2 years of school are going to fly by! It seems like such little time, like nothing can happen! In the next two years I will either be married (or about to get married) or about to leave for a mission (which is what I'm planning on now). I could be an aunt!!!......or not. I don't know! It's crazy how much can happen so quickly! Those times playing in the playroom seem like only last year! Moving to Auburn seems only months ago! And now my family lives in a totally new location and I'm in Idaho! Crazy, huh? Well, I just am amazed at how much has happened, and how fast it goes by :) That's all I've got. I hope you were amused!!

Bad/ Weird Recurrent Dream

So I keep having this dream, and I don't like it! It's weird Because I'm at home, except in a house that isn't ours. And then there is this guy all dressed in black, and he has some kind of sword, and I have a straight sword, and then a curved one, they are both kinda shorter. Anyway, so I can usually kill him really quick, I just chuck the sword and stab him in the chest, but this time, he faked it going into him (I have NO idea how) and then he stood up, so dad came into the room and I left and went outside, but then I came back in, and was upstairs next to Austins room and he opened the door and I told him to be quiet and I saw the guy and I was going to have it timed right to chuck my sword and kill him, but Austin distracted me so then the timing was off and the guy had seen me and was coming up the stairs. And then I woke up.

According to what I learned in Psychology that guy would represent someone I'm upset with, but it can't be the actual person because my superego (I think) or maybe it's the id, would not allow me to kill an actual person, so it has to be disguised as a bad guy. But each time I have this dream it goes a little farther, and it's more difficult to kill the bad guy. I don't know. I just thought I would post it. It's weird, and slightly disturbing. Then I went back to sleep and had another dream that I had had before, but it went farther too. It was kinda placed at an assembly line factory, and I don't even know how to explain it. It was kinda weird, but it wasn't scary. :)

Dreams are stupid, anyway I'm enjoying break. I'm not getting much accomplished, but I'm enjoying it anyway :) Have a GREAT Thanksgiving!

The (hopefully) FINAL Schedule

So I finally finished registering for classes, and many classes I could not get, or decided I did not necessarily need, so now I have 13 credits :) That is MUCH better than 17! Anyway here's what my schedule SHOULD look like:

7:45-8:45 (Wednesdays only) Intro to Business Management
9-10am Book of Mormon (NO FRIDAYS!!)
11:30am-12:30pm Heroic Journey (don't ask me what it is, it's just required)
2-3pm University Band

Tues, Thurs
8-9:30am Writing Foundations
11:30am-1pm College Algebra

So it isn't AS bad, but I'll still remain busy, no more super easy classes. gah. Well I'm ready for the Thanksgiving break! YAY! Almost here! Well, I'm headed to bed. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY! :D

Friday, November 14, 2008


So, I register for classes on Monday the 17th. I've been working on my schedule for awhile now, and it seems that I am going to have 17 credit hours next semester. Is this going to kill me!? What is worse is that I only have 2 classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5 on Mondays, 6 on Wednesdays, and 4 on Fridays. On top of this I have church and my calling, my job, and hopefully a social life at some point. I can't seem to get any of my MWF classes to switch over to Tuesdays and Thursdays. Is this going to stress me out alot? Or do you think I can handle them all while still maintaining good grades? Here's my schedule:

9-10am: Book of Mormon
10:15-11:15am: Writing Foundations
11:30-12:30pm: Heroic Journey
12:45-1:45pm: College Algebra
2-3pm: University Band

9-10am: Professional Communication Foundations
12:45-1:45pm: Developing World

7:45-8:45am: Intro to Business Management (aka my major)
9-10am: Book of Mormon
10:15-11:15am: Writing Foundations
11:30-12:30pm: Heroic Journey
12:45-1:45pm: College Algebra
2-3pm: University Band

9-10am: Professional Communication Foundations
12:45-1:45pm: Developing World

10:15-11:15am: Writing Foundations
11:30-12:30pm: Heroic Journey
12:45-1:45pm: College Algebra
2-3pm: University Band

So, do you think I am either insane..or on the road to? eeks! Anyway, so I'm stressed and don't know what to do. But that's basically all I've got! I hope all is well with you :D

These images were too funny to pass up. I used to make each of these. Shaelyn reminds me of a picture that mom has of herself...!

Sam...haha, it's funny!!

Miranda! She's adorable, and she too resembles mom!


And me...I don't know if I look like mom or dad, but it's me :D yay! I love them :D

It's going SO fast!

We are already in our second block of the semester. Once Thanksgiving break is over, there will only be two weeks of school left until I get to go home for Christmas!!!! It's going by soooo fast. My Psychology class is amazingly difficult, but what can you do? This Thanksgiving break I am spending the first part of it with my roommate Tandy at her house, celebrating her birthday! She is way fun and we get along great! Then I think I am going to Preston for actual Thanksgiving and will be looking for 10 hours of service! I need it to pass one of my most pointless classes ever! However I am definitely enjoying Rexburg. It's getting cold, and the snow has begun, but not much is on the ground yet. I have been having problems with my back and neck and will be seeing the Chiropractor several times a week for some time. Thankfully my insurance will cover it completely so I can get my back fixed and still be able to afford the necessities (a.k.a. food). I eat a lot. I probably should watch that a little, but what else can you do when you have nothing else to do at 10 at night?? haha. I am working at a place called Western Wats. It Well as long as I keep a positive attitude it is ok, but basically I make phone calls around the country to give out surveys on different topics. I've only been chewed out a couple times ;)

Well I guess that is all I have to say.... I think I will post some pictures for you to see!!!
These are 5 of the 6 cousins out of high school! WE ARE ALL GETTING SO OLD ;), well we are growing up anyways ;) And below are 3 of my 5 roommates, the got in a chocolate fight, it was a mess, but was quite entertaining to witness! On the left is Tandy, in the middle is Cassie (she's engaged to be married in December!), and my room roommate Erin!
