Masquerade! Paper faces on Parade! Masquerade!

(Ashley and I)

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!

"For once in your life why don't you be positive!?!?"

Well hello!! School has kept me crazy busy, and if I'm not busy I try to go out and socialize!!! I've been thinking about changing my major from Business Management to Accounting with a minor in Business. I think it would be a good idea, even though it would be SUPER hard! I think it would be a good idea! But it's ok, I have plenty of time to decide if that's what I want to do! I won't be returning next semester, but I'm going to take at least one online class so that I can remain a student and have student health insurance, since once I lose full time student status I lose dad's insurance. Exciting, right? Anyway, as of right now the plan is to return home and work. However I'm going to try to get an internship at Disney! They pay for your housing plus they pay you! All I would have to do is pay for food! :D I really hope I can get it! It would look great on my resume, and it would be an awesome experience! So that pretty much covers that, what else is new?

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 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
