Yesterday was pretty hectic. I was all over the place. I went to work, home to get my stuff for classes, then up to campus for class, then back to work to finish some stuff up, then home to finally change out of the dreaded skirt, then back up to campus to study for a test, then back home because I forgot some study material, and back up to campus to finally take my test and watching a video for a class in the library. I was on campus the latest I have been all year. So then I went back home and since we have cleaning checks today, did some cleaning. After that I was finally able to eat dinner. Now this is not why it turned out to be the best day ever, but because of little things that happened during the day in between all the crazyness.
Numero 1: I was able to have the most amazing talk with a friend. It went on for over an hour and it was great. I should of had that talk with him a long time ago. It was pretty much an answer to my prayers of the last four months. It was awesome.
Numero 2: I finally got my letter for taking the citizenship test!
Numero 3: I did fairly well on the test I took :)
These next 2-3 weeks are going to be a little insane with school but little things like these are what make everything worth it.
By the way, I can't believe October is almost over. Seriously, where is time going? I've been 21 for a month now!

The man of my dreams by description of the word is a hick. I blame it on being from Texas. Ok so I don't really want a hick but I do want someone who enjoys certain things a hick would. Does that make me a hick?
The following aren't necessarily in order of importance.
1. I would like him to enjoy fishing and enjoy taking me with him every now and then :)
2. I would like him to enjoy hunting. I like to go shooting and once again would like him to take me along every now and then :)
3. He would enjoy watching sports only a healthy amount. I like to watch sometimes and as long as it's not an obsession it would be nice. I can't enjoy watching sports more than he.
4. He has direction in his life. He has goals and knows what he wants.
5. He's respectful of women. You can tell how a guy will treat you by the way he treats his mom. No joke. That being said, I want him to be independent of his mother and make his own decisions.
6. I want a worthy priesthood holder who is trying to do what's right and who I can admire.
Like I said, the above list is not in any specific order but yeah, that's pretty much what I would like.

Here's my dilema.
If I stick with exercise science I'll graduate at the end of Spring 2010. If I switch to Psychology I'll graduate in December 2010 or maybe April 2011. Granted this is according to my calculations. If I go meet with an advisor they may tell me I should just resign myself to spending the rest of my life at BYU.
Another part of this dilema is funding. I'm on scholarship through the Multicultural Student office and I can only recieve so much. I could always take out another loan for my last year. But wait, I think I can receive a scholarship for 4 years and I didn't get one my freshman year from them. If that's the case then I can totally stay another year and just graduate in Spring 2011. That's 5 years at BYU though. Hmmm....if I do that though, then I pretty much just wasted this semester and the last 4 I've been here. I could also just finish out exercise science which would not give me a very good GPA and then go to graduate school for psychology. Maybe I should go talk to an advisor about this.

Peanut butter cookies. My first time ever!
And cheesecake. Katie's been waiting a while for me to make this.
I feel so accomplished. Well almost. My next task is to shower :)
P.S. The kitchen is still clean :)

Isn't it awesome? I think so :)
It's my one and only Halloween decoration.
Lately I've had lots of random thoughts in my head and maybe I should put them down somewhere. I'll try to make sense of them as best I can. Sorry if it turns out to be a long first blog.
School. Where do I even begin in talking about school. Right now I'm stuck in a bad place. The "I have no motivation for it" place. I know. It will be my downfall. If anyone has any ideas on how I can get my motivation to try back, please let me know.
I've got to be more social. I've kind of given up on meeting new people. I figure I already have friends, why put the effort to make more. I'm a horrible person I know. I guess it's just that I already have a pretty good bunch of friends and I don't really feel like getting to know more people just yet. Maybe I should start working on that pretty soon cause I'm going to start running out of friends to hang out with since everyone is getting married. Congrats by the way to all those of you who just got married or are engaged :)
This one might be a little more confusing. I've been trying to find a purpose to my life. I've been looking for answers from Heavenly Father as far as what it is he wants me to do. Some of you may know that earlier this year I had decided to serve a mission. Life changed somewhat over the summer and I abandoned that decision. Dumb? Yes. I can't even begin to tell you how angry I've been at myself for having let go of that decision when I knew it was so right. It's taken me a while but I've started to fix things in my life to hopefully get me back onto the right track. Most important lesson I learned from this is that while people will let you down, Heavenly Father never will. That is why we must do our best to not let Him down. I am so thankful for the atonement and that we are given second chances in life.
