Moral of the story: Don't take weapons OR liquids through airports with you...people don't like it much :)

I started dating a guy named Curtis. He's a real sweetheart. I didn't think I'd start dating anyone because of long distance, but I am! It will be sort of difficult, but we already have a "long distance" relationship. He lives in Logan (for school) and so I don't get to see him very much. But we talk everyday and have gotten to know each other pretty well, although there is still a lot to learn! He makes me happy and he is coming up to visit tomorrow. I think he is leaving Sunday evening to go home to Salt Lake. I am excited to see him.
Classes are almost over! I've got one more project to complete. Five homework assignments, three quizzes, and six tests (two of which are NOT finals). I need to practice the piano--the choir is singing on Monday night for FHE. Also, my apartment is hosting a hot chocolate night on Sunday at 6:30, so got to get ready for that as well! Then next Friday I will spend all day packing and cleaning. Saturday morning I leave for Salt Lake at 9:30am and arrive around 1:30ish. I fly out Sunday around 8:30pm and get home sometime early in the morning on Monday. I'm then home until the 2nd of January and then I fly out to Arizona! Everything is happening so fast! It's exciting and stressful all at once!
Well, that's practically everything that I've been up to! I'm certainly keeping busy! :D

"An army of Elders will be sent to the four quarters of the earth to search out the righteous and warn the wicked of what is coming. All kinds of religions will be started and miracles performed that will deceive the very elect if that were possible. Our sons and daughters must live pure lives so as to be prepared for what is coming. After a while the gentiles will gather by the thousands to this place, and Salt Lake City will be classed among the wicked cities of the world. A spirit of speculation and extravagance will take possession of the Saints, and the results will be financial bondage. Persecution comes next and all true Latter-day Saints will be tested to the limit. Many will apostatize and others will be still not knowing what to do. Darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness the minds of the people. The judgments of God will be poured out on the wicked to the extent that our Elders from far and near will be called home, or in other words the gospel will be taken from the Gentiles and later on carried to the Jews. The western boundary of the State of Missouri will be swept so clean of its inhabitants that as President Young tells us, when you return to that place, there will not be left so much as a yellow dog to wag his tail. Before that day comes, however, the Saints will be put to tests that will try the integrity of the best of them. The pressure will become so great that the more righteous among them will cry unto the Lord day and night until deliverance comes...

Some of you know that I have been searching for a nanny position to go work for a year after this semester is over. I had my first interview with a Sean and Beki Clark on Friday! We had a 1 hour and 20 minute phone interview/conversation. They are members of the church and have one little boy. He is 21 months, so almost 2. He's adorable! This is Wesley:
Isn't he adorable!? Beki and Sean called me last night and told me that they would like to offer me the position :) I will be flying to Arizona, probably on the 2nd of January. I am really excited for this opportunity, and frankly quite nervous! It's like I'm gonna be a mommy..without actually being a mom! I have full responsibility over this kid from 8am-6pm! I'm in charge of helping him learn and develop! It's a scary responsibility! However it will be an awesome experience, and a great opportunity to learn more about the care of children.
Sean told me that there are more guys than girls in the area and that I won't have have a shortage of guys asking me on dates. lol. We shall see. Even better they both fully understand that I want to serve a mission at the end of the year, but still offer a bonus if I choose to stay for another year. I am really excited...and I might be needing motherly advice and ideas of things to keep him learning, growing, and entertained! Any input is awesome. He is a very hands on kid, and likes to help bake, learn sign language, press keys on the piano, and other hands on activities!
Other random exciting information:
I got an email from my friend who is on his mission in Norway today! It's the first time I've heard from him since he left! I was SOOO excited, and he is doing wonderful :) I miss Torvald!!
It's been a great start to the week..and Thanksgiving is next week :) (I get my wisdom teeth out a week from today :/ It's only the bottom 2, but I'm going to be awake during the procedure, I'm really scared) So life is wonderful and I'm super excited right now!
Input is welcome!!!

Last night I went to a Masquerade Ball! It was absolutely positively wonderful! I had my roommate, Ashley, set me up with this guy David that she knew (I had met him once before, but only briefly). We got together Thursday night to create our masks, they all have a bit of our own personalities! After we made masks we played Rook until we decided to call it a night. After that Ashley and I decided to do facial masks, Mary Kay's Satin hands, and Mary Kay's Satin lips. It was fun :)
(Daniel and David)
I think we all had fun! Last night the guys came over, and we each made an appetizer! We had mozzarella sticks, cream cheese spread w/ crackers, cauliflower and cheese, and sausage wrapped in bacon with brown sugar--that was delicious! After eating and talking for some time we decided to get dressed, take pictures and go to the dance :)
(David, Me, Ashley, Daniel)
David is an awesome dancer, and even took the time to teach me (he didn't get impatient that I had issues with some of the steps and kept messing up...). It was soo fun. We danced pretty much the entire time, except for about 30mins when I told David to go dance with Ashley (her date couldn't dance for the life of him..poor guy..) My favorite was swing dancing! I think I was best at that one!
So random thought: I think David has a "Mr. Incredible" look to him...what do you think?
Well, since I had a blast yesterday and got practically nothing done all day, I now have to spend all day today doing it!
Saturday, October 17, 2009
So, I've been aware, since High School sometime, that I have a somewhat negative attitude sometimes! I usually don't really pick up on it, but I'm aware of it and I've gotten a lot better! I am always trying to become more optimistic and whatnot but I guess I fail at that? Not too long ago two of my roommates decided to tell me they thought I was negative, and the way that they saw it was something I was not aware of, however I am not going off of what they say, because those two are the two that hardly ever talk to me, so they really have no idea what I'm like. Anyway, so last night Sam (my bro came up) and I cooked dinner for my apartment and Sam and my old roommate Erin Farrar. After dinner we went to the new Harry Potter movie. It was Sam & Erin (his gf), myself and Erin Farrar, and Rachel (Erin's roommate) and her bf Sam. So we had 2 Sam's and 2 Erin's! Anyway, I got home and the kitchen was still a pigsty! It had dishes from the day before and what I had used. Thank goodness for my roommate Liz, she got up and unloaded the dishwasher, she's so great! Anyway, so I was slightly irritated that I had so many nasty dishes to scrub and do. However I wasn't that upset. So then, we have this cooking grease that we've dumped into a bottle (we don't know what to do with it) and it's sitting on our counter. So I made a comment that we need to figure out what to do with it so we can get rid of it, and one of my roommates goes, "I think we should heat it up and dump it on 'Cloud 9' (which is what apt. 9 calls themselves). Of course I responded with "I think we should..." (well at least I was gonna respond with we neeed to do something nice with it...like just dispose of it, but she cut me off) "You always shoot down my ideas! FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE, WHY DON'T YOU BE POSITIVE!?" I couldn't really tell if she was serious or just joking but I made no response to her and she said nothing back. I finished the dishes and left the apartment without another word. Even if she was joking that is a subject that is very sensitive to me. I don't get offended very easily but what she said really hurt and it kept running through my head over and over again! I went and hung out with my friend Jared who helped me feel better :) We walked in the park, talked, got hot chocolate, talked, went up to the temple grounds and talked some more! I was feeling a lot better by the time I came home 2 hours or so later. I'm still bothered by the fact that she said that, and I don't really know how to react. Her and her roommate hardly talk to me anyway, so maybe I can finish off the semester peacefully. I'm sort of glad I'm coming home next semester, living with 5 girls is rough, especially the combination of girls I have! No joke I have THE weirdest and MOST hormonal group of girls you will EVER meet! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy talking to 3 of them...most of the time, but man our combination is SO strange! Anyway! Moving on.....
OH! I am going to a Masquerade ball this upcoming Friday! My roommate set me up with her friend David! I'm really excited! :D We are going to decorate our masks, have dinner and go to the dance. It should be lots of fun! I haven't figured out what I'm wearing yet or how I'm going to decorate my mask, but I'll get it figured out, eventually!
Well I hope you all have an enjoyable day!! I've got homework to tend to and then Rocio and I are hanging out, having a little family time. :D I'm super excited! :D

3 readings (2 for fam found and ch. 3 for acctg--which is always super long)
2 acctg assignments
4 acctg quizzes
1 fam found Unit Response
So I got really stressed out! On top of that I'm having a really hard time with my roommates this semester. I'm trying to keep a positive perspective, but it's hard when you get ignored by your roommates and are typically the only one that doesn't have anything exciting to do on a Friday night (or any other night for that matter!) Well, OK, I do get to do some fun things. I hang out with Tandy on Tuesdays, and Erin and I hang out randomly too. Like last night! Last night Erin came over and we made fruit smoothies! It had strawberries, peaches, bananas, Strawberry Banana yogurt, Guava Strawberry Juice, and Pineapple Orange Strawberry juice in it. It turned out pretty good! Then we went and talked to a couple friends around the complex. That was exciting :)
OK, plus last Saturday Erin and her little sister Hailey and I took a road trip to.......
It was very exciting! We saw Bisallo (Erin's work for bufallo/bison) and Old Faithful and Firehole falls. Which is sort of a funny story in itself :) Erin wasn't having the best day for talking! Firehole falls were pretty awesome! I was scared I was gonna fall over the edge to my death!!
We had a super exciting moment! We were driving and we got held up in traffic for like 10 minutes! It had completely stopped moving, then it would go, then it would stop, then it would go. When we got to the front, we found out why!
This big guy was walking back and forth across the street, over and over again (there were others on the side of the road, not as exciting though). In fact he crossed right in front of us and stopped right outside my window! It was really actually sort of frightening!
His eye scared me really bad! I rolled up my window quite quickly, as did Hailey! But then I realized that even if my window was up, and if he got mad, the window would not really help any!
Old Faithful was..well Old faithful! Nothing much to say. I have most the pictures posted on facebook, but I thought I'd share the key ones! It was an exciting weekend, nevertheless it did make my Monday a little bit more stressed, but that's ok!
So here I am talking about always being stressed and I'm writing a blog. Oh dear I need to get my priorities straight..however I did read part of my readings while I waited for the pictures to upload! haha! Well, I don't have very exciting plans, I spend a lot of time studying and doing homework. Oh, I took my accounting test and got an 80%. I was hoping for a 90% but an 80% is better than anything lower than that! Plus I'm starting to understand! :D
So summarization of my life right now, I have exciting moments but for the most part I remain stressed and I'm really having a hard time with my roommates, I don't feel at home, and I sort of want to just go back to IL. But! I'm getting smarter and the end of the semester will be here before I know it! :D Got to go get my new laptop!! adios! :D
Monday, September 7, 2009
So today I moved into my apartment. After awhile I decided I needed to go to my storage unit in Carriage House, so I went to get the key and the manager offered to have her husband take me--I was only going to dig through and get my bedding since I was car-less. So I agree and we go and I find my suitcase, my backpack, and 3 totes. The bag that I had stuffed all my bedding in and my winter coat was gone :( We looked for a good 10-15 minutes. The room really isn't very big so we searched pretty good. It was frustrating. So then I had to go to the store to buy new sheets and blankets and mattress pad. So there goes $50 I wasn't planning on spending!
Also, I went and bought my books for this semester, which were cheaper then I thought, and for at least one of my classes there is software we have to download along with the books. So I was looking at my software for CIT and realized that is requires internet explorer to work. For those of you who don't know...my internet explorer crashed and no longer runs on my computer. I can only use Firefox and Google Chrome. So now I have to figure out how to get it to run again so that I can successfully use the software. CIT requires you to use your laptop during class, so it's necessary that it runs on my computer, I can't just go to the library. Anyway, it's sort of been a stressful day.. I haven't gone grocery shopping yet and I'm hungry. I have 2 oranges a box of rice-a-roni and some cereal left. Oh I have potato pearls and spices...looks like I just found dinner! Hope your days are going a little bit better...

So sometime this summer I did something to my left thumb. Not sure what, I just know that it hurts, kinda bad. Then tonight I was teasing Miranda and my thumb got knocked and now it hurts really bad. So I'm going to try and see a dr tomorrow and see what's wrong with it. OK, that is really all I've got right now. It's strange that I'm heading back to school, but I am excited to get back. I hope all is going well for everyone! Have a great week :)

..Live each day as if it were your last..
I think that if I were to die tonight I would regret being upset with my brother
I'd regret not getting to know my family better
I'd regret all the times someone passed me by looking down, and I did nothing to help
I'd regret not constantly striving to be a better person.
Remember that each and every day is a gift, not a promise. Treat it like a rare possession, and never take it for granted.

So the people we bought this house from offered to pay Sam to take down the playset that had been left in our backyard (it was HUGE) and told him he would need some help so offered to pay Austin and one other person that Sam found. So they were outside working on the playset and Austin was climbing off the playset onto the ladder that was standing next to it. He was probably on about the 3rd wrung from the top when the ladder collapsed and down came Austin! He landed on top of the ladder and also the mulch. He stood up and acted all tough telling Sam and Brandon that he was ok, and then made his way into the house with a bleeding knee. He called for mom and we could tell something was wrong. Mom went in and started cleaning the cut and decided to take him to the hospital for stitches. As they start cleaning the cut they find that one of the wood chips from the mulch had stabbed into his knee and the cut was deeper than it appeared. So they gave him stitches to help the cut heal. Also while he was there they gave him his "Tetris" shot (Tetnus--Austin kept calling it tetris) and another shot for his school vaccinations. Early the next morning Austin was up sick to his stomach. He reached a fever of 104 degrees when mom gave him ibouprofen and called the hospital. Anyway, Austin is ok, he was cold all day but is much better now :) So that's our little adventure for the year. This is Austin's 3rd set of stitches, i told him he was getting stitches for me, since I've never had to go to the hospital for anything!
Well, I think that pretty much covers what's going on in our lives! Oh, well Sam is dating a girl, she goes to BYU-Idaho. And well, that's the end of the story! Have a good week!

Well I applied for a job in Rexburg and would be going up there next week if I had gotten the job. BUT I did not get the job. I'm having a hard time finding work up there and I was really disappointed that I did not get the job. But to make me feel a little better there were 130 applicants and only 40 made it to the interview process...I was one of those. There are only 15 openings. So I'm a little bummed about that. I had felt so sure and it felt so right it was hard to take. But I know the Lord will provide as long as I remain faithful and keep the commandments. Thankfully I do have a job right now, and I have a little time to find a job in Rexburg. I'm just grateful that I have a job, and a fairly decent paying job at that. :D
Have a good day everyone :) I need to get ready to go to work :)
Sunday, June 28, 2009
Ok, new topic. So a friend of mine in Rexburg got me an application for a new place opening in Rexburg, some sort of family fun place! I'm hoping to get the job, and if so I'll probably be returning to Rexburg earlier than I planned, only catch is that I will have to find a place to stay for a month! So I'm really hoping for the job, it would be great and I have a great availability schedule this next semester! Tuesday-Friday I'm done with classes by 11:15! Also ALL of my classes are really close to my apartment! They are all in the Smith building except one, which is in the Clark (not that that means much to most of you) But they are pretty much the closest buildings to my apartment! Like a 7 minute walk at most! I'm really looking forward to getting back to school!
Have a great week everybody! :D

I was at my computer typing when this stupid little bug kept flying around my face, so getting fed up with it I swatted. I definitely made contact....WITH MY FACE!
Anyway that was one of my many DUH moments, and thought I'd share it with hope that it would bring a smile to your face :)
and here is a quote that one of my counselors in the bishopric at school liked to say a lot: "Put a smile on your kisser, and if you are lucky someone will plant a kiss on your smiler."

1) Prayer/Priesthood blessings
2) The Lord's Answer
3) The temple
4) Church leaders
Through the several things that I've experience this semester I've been able to realize the comfort that comes through prayer. At times I was experiencing some overwhelming feelings that some of the people closest to me were going to pass away, or were dead. It was not just a one time thing, but something that continued on for a few months. Finally, I asked for a blessing, and although I was not promised that I wouldn't lose those people I felt a little more at peace. Prayer also helped me be comforted for a short period of time. When the feelings were still coming, while in an interview with my bishop, I shared what I'd been experiencing and couldn't keep the tears within. He also gave me a comfort blessing, one that seems to have helped quite a bit. Once again, I may not have been promised the life of those I love, but I was promised that the Lord knew what I was experiencing and He also knew what I could handle better than even me. That blessing has comforted me in more than just that difficult time. When classes get stressful, or roommates get on my nerves (well usually my nerves are already short when that happens) I've been able to reflect on both that blessing and been able to resort to prayer to help me calm down and feel at peace and not take offense. I'm really grateful to those that gave me the first blessing, and my bishop for being in tune with the spirit to tell me the things I needed to hear to comfort me.
One day, someone really upset me and I really needed to be alone for awhile..and when you have 5 roommates you don't get that time when you REALLY need it. So I took a walk up to the temple grounds. While walking I was thinking about everything that was bothering me and why I was letting it bother me. When I got to the point that I could see the temple quite clearly I felt an overwhelming feeling that the Lord loves me, and I could feel the frustration and anger melt away as I drew closer to the Lord's house. I've truly gained an appreciation for this holy place. Also, it has been a place for me to find answers to my questions, it's the best place to be to feel near to the Lord....however the answers to my questions may not be what I had wanted to hear, I still received an answer, and I know the Lord is there to take care of me as I make the correct decisions in my life.
So that covers Prayer/blessings, church leaders, answers, and the temple...but I've also gained an appreciation for my roommates. Each one is different and beautiful in their own ways..I'm not just talking physically :) Each one has been able to hold me up from their own experience and their understanding. I'm really going to miss them when I leave...especially those I may not get to see again after this semester :( I've also been able to see the power of roommate scripture study and prayer in an apartment. We weren't very good at having our roommate prayer and scriptures study for the first half of the semester. Let's just say our apartment was pretty tense, and not a fun place to be. There were feelings of irritation everywhere, and it seemed like that was all you could think about...(well for me anyway) One day we decided to start having prayers, which helped immensely, it was an obvious change. No one could miss it, plus all of us felt better. (Once again I speak for me..but also Erin on this one..cuz we actually talked about it) Anyway, so now we try to have prayer and scripture study every night. I guess we have to thank our FHE brothers because they really did help encourage us and help us start the habit. It's truly blessed our apartment! Well this is a super long blog...but I wanted to share the things that I've learned this semester :) (I can't share it all because this blog would NEVER end ;) )

Anyway, so I'm going to be spending two weeks in Nebraska during April before going to Illinois to my family. I should arrive on April 11th. Shannon and I will be leaving the night of April 10th and go as far as we can and then stop and stay somewhere. Then on April 11th we will drive to Lincoln where I will go to grandmas and get my family's car! Then I hope to be visiting friends and family while I'm in Nebraska. I really really can't wait :) It will be super exciting. I get to see one of my friends from elementary school who I haven't seen in 7 years! I really am excited. Plus I get to see my high school friends, and Justin who I haven't seen since June(?) of last year. So it will be a wonderful visit. Hopefully I'll get to see my new cousin while I'm there too! Sam flies into Nebraska on the 23rd of April around 12:30, so I have to pick him up in Omaha. Then we will return to Lincoln so that he can visit a friend of his and see family as well. Then on Sunday the 26th after attending church in the Nebraska City ward we are going to drive to Illinois. So as much as I want to return home I'm looking forward to getting to see my friends and family :) :) :)
Well that's the update of my life! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day :)

But I've just been super proud of myself for being such a social butterfly! Thursday night I went out to eat with 2 friends, then went back to Cherean's apt. and played games with a bunch of her friends. Then Friday night my apt invited a bunch of different apts over to play games at our apartment, which was fun. We played Cancellation Hearts (interesting game..) then we played Mafia. We played two rounds of that, the 2nd time around I was in the Mafia, yeah mafia kicked butt, and totally won. Me and Phylicia worked together on it and WON!!! haha. Anyway, so after that Phylicia, Tandy, Zach, Francisco, Jakob, Taylor and I went Latin dancing. It was WAY fun. Francisco was AMAZING, but no matter what our skill level we all had fun. Tandy and I had to leave after an hour so that we could get some sleep (we both worked at 8 am Sat. morning). So we left at 11. Then Saturday I worked from 8-12 and then had lunch with Tonya (my cuz) and then Phylicia and I decided that we wanted to go ice skating, so we called up Jakob and Zach, but Zach was sore from snowboarding that morning, so I called Taylor who agreed to go with us. (Jakob and Taylor are our FHE brothers) So we went ice skating and had TONS OF FUN! After ice skating we came back had hot coco and played hearts. Then around 11:30 they were gone and I made a phone call to my brother Sam and we talked for 30 mins when I finally laid down to go to sleep :) Then I woke up for church this morning. Anyway, I'm just so proud of myself for developing charity and for being sooo social! (oh and Jakob and Phylicia decided to try and dance on the ice..we got a video of it, up until Phylicia fell..they did pretty good though, I was impressed :D )
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Anyway I ended up spending all day staring at my computer screen again, and work called and told me not to come in, so all I have left is my flute sectionals. Then clean checks and some last minute homework :)
Here's the video I watched:

My friend Adrienne from Grand Island is taking a road trip out here to Rexburg, she's supposed to be here today. I'm also planning on taking a trip down to Salt Lake City. I want to see my friend Torvald Johnson before he leaves on his mission, and his older brother Eric who got back last year, but we never got to hang out. So I'm going to go and hang out with them and Randall :) I'm kind of excited. I just need to find a week I can go. One of my friends got her mission call last night to Brazil, Porto Alegre North Mission. So that's an exciting thing! It makes me very excited to go on a mission. Oh and the other day I was talking to my friend Pama and she said that hopefully the Winter of 2011 I would see her and this guy together a lot (because they will both be here at BYU-I and he will have just returned home from his mission) and I realized that I won't be here in the Winter of 2011! I'm going to be leaving for a mission!!!!!!! So I figured it out, I have this summer, 2 semesters, another summer, one semester and I'll be about ready to leave!!!! I am really excited :)
Ok, that's all I have to write right now, so have a fantabulous day :)

Tuesday, January 20, 2009
I have begun thinking about whether or not I want to stay in Rexburg over the summer. I would really like too! It will be warm and there will be fun things to do. I am currently trying to find a steady job that I could work 40hrs at during the summer, but I haven't had too much success yet. But I'd really like to stay here, especially since it will be my room roommates last semester!! I would then somehow find a way home for the 7 week break, but I haven't made a decision yet. I guess it just depends on where mom and dad are at around the time I need to buy a contract for my apartment.
School is stressful. I am keeping fairly busy. My business class is requiring more work than I expected from a 7:45am one credit class, and is requiring me to request several days off of work. Today my schedule is very crazy:
6:15am-wake up, get ready, finish homework...
7:35am-leave for Writing Foundation class from 8-9:30am
9:30am-go to accounting offices and fix insurance late fee and register for career workshops, go to health center and check price of inhaler
10:15am-well this is my time where I don't have time to go home now in order to get back to the Ricks for class, so I'm just messing around on the computer
11:30am-Math class until 1pm
1pm-go home, eat, change, go to devotional
3-return home, eat again
7:10-meeting with bishopric
8:30-return home, eat, do homework, go to bed!
What a fun day!! haha. Tandy and I went to the duck park the other day and took pictures, I just haven't put them on my computer quite yet. It was fun and the pictures are quite entertaining. Sam is coming to Rexburg on Friday to come spend the weekend up here, I am kind of excited to maybe have something to do!! I turn 19 tomorrow, but I don't have anything fun planned. I have class from 7:45am-3pm, with breaks in between most of my classes. But I took work off, so maybe I'll make myself cupcakes and enjoy eating junk food! haha. Who knows. Well, that is my update of my life...sorry to inform you that I have no dating prospects! haha. However we do have a pretty good FHE group with some cute boys! hahaha, whatever. Well, have a good day :D

My friend ticked me off, I tried to communicate with her about it and never got a response.
Another friend disappointed me...but that's better now :)
I started getting homework assignments in email before classes started
I bought books (always a wonderful experience!)
I started classes and I'm pretty stressed out with them
One of my roommates (same one that drove me crazy last semester) is beginning to drive me crazy...again
Dad lost his job
Anyway, we got one new roommate in our apartment this semester, her name is Michelle. She just returned from her mission that she served in Argentina. She is really cool, I approve :)
I've just been really stressed out lately, with classes and some of the above mentioned happenings of my life. I'm not really looking forward to the semester, but my apartment is being much more social and we are meeting more people. There are some cute RM's in the ward! hahaha!! Last night I went to a comedy improv. show. Kirby Heybourn was there, and a guy that played in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, but I don't know his name..Corbin, I think. Anyway. It was awesome, at the end of the show they did a 45 minute improv musical. It was soo funny! It gave me a break from my torturous math reading :( I've been having problems comprehending what it all meant. You see my math teacher, Kent Bessey, wrote a book called To Infinity and Beyond! Anyway, so we have free access to the ebook of it and we had to read the first chapter where he is trying to explain infinity! And it doesn't make any sense to me, at all! So my old FHE brothers came over and attempted to help me and one lent me their graphing calculator only at the cost of making him dinner sometime!! So much cheaper then haivng to buy one, or getting up and being all the way up to the Ricks by 7am to get one for $5! So it has started to make more sense. Oh so my bishopric is getting released next Sunday. I am sooo sad about it. They are awesome. My bishop and his wife are going on a mission to Mexico. Well, I don't know, I'm just kind of rambling. Sam is coming to Rexburg on the 23rd, I am excited, we might go on a group date while he is here...well assuming I can find a guy...or maybe the problem is asking a guy. hmm. It's really icy here. I haven't fallen...yet. But there is lots of thick ice. Ok. I'm done rambling. Have a GREAT week :D
