Blah!

Sometimes working at the MTC is torture!

I'll give you a hypothetical situation in which it would be so.

Let's say you had friends who submitted mission papers and you had access to view where they were going before the mission call came. There's no way you can say anything about it because that would be cheating. TORTURE!

I don't know why I do this to myself. I mean......since we're speaking hypothetically here.....I don't know why anyone would this to their selves.

I'm almost done!

I'm almost done! I'm almost done! I've taken 4 finals in the last 2 days and now I only have 2 left!

Before you go thinking that I'm a slacker (which I am, but not in this case) I will just have you know that these two were scheduled. I know, my life sucks. I have to take finals on the very last day and at the very last times possible. My History of Psychology (blah) test is tonight at 5:45pm. Then I have my LDS Perspectives and Psychology test at 8:00pm. Yes it's ok for you to feel sorry for me.

Looking on the bright side of things though........
  • tomorrow I won't have to worry about catching up on any last minute reading
  • I'll be checking out of my apartment (without anywhere to go until Monday)
  • Hopefully tomorrow night Nikki and Meagan open their mission calls
  • Friday morning I'll be headed out to Colorado for the weekend for Kelsey's wedding
  • I'll be moving in The Colony! (as mentioned before, I'll be homeless before this comes)
  • I start Spring classes next week, only 1, Sports Psychology, which I'm super stoked about!
  • Winter is gone!!!!! (I hope I'm not jinxing anything)

I'm gonna come at you like a Spider Monkey!

I went rock climbing last night! It was so awesome! but now I'm a little dead. I didn't get any pictures :( but I'm definitely going again during the summer! It was sooooo much fun. The best part was that I got to spend time with Kelsey, Steve, and Brock. I don't ever really do anything with them so it was nice to spend a couple of hours last night and do something with them.

Thanks Kelsey, Steve, and Brock for inviting me!
Now I need to stop avoiding studying for finals. I've gotta take two today :(

Bridal Shower Galore!

I'm pretty much an expert when it comes to lingerie. I kid you not. I have spent most of my time at the mall lately shopping for lingerie. I'm dang good at picking really cute stuff.

So getting to the reasons behind all this shopping.......bridal showers!!!

First came Kelsey's. Instead of doing a traditional host-it-at-someone's-apartment-and-have-games, we had a girls night out.
All the single ladies are wearing ring pops, genius idea by Andrea. So that's everyone minus Kelsey who is the only one with real bling.

We hit up Chili's for dinner since Kels LOVES the place.
We also went to Spark and had us some mocktails (I'm sad they didn't have a little something extra.....kidding......ok half serious)

We ended the night by going back to my apartment where I'd made some awesome cupcakes to open gifts!This was Kelsey's face pretty much the whole time.

The countdown is on for her..........9 days.........

Then there was Amber's bridal shower. I got no pictures from this because I forgot my camera. Super lame. Callie and Willi hosted it for her and they did a great job. There was lots of yummy food and some games. Once again opening gifts was the best part. And I found out that she gets to be my roommate for 2 weeks before she gets married! Hooray!

So. Moral of the story. If you want something great for your bridal shower, invite me. Ha. But seriously ;)

Are you kidding me?

I looked out my window at work and saw this! Are you kidding me weather? Do you not know it's the middle of April. I'm ok with the rain but this????

You can't get the full effect of it since I took this picture on my phone but you see the snow! Ridiculous.......that's all I have to say.


And what does weather.com have to say about it......

I don't understand.......why the snow when it's going to be 60 next week.....why the torture?

Curse you Utah!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok I'm done ranting.....

Technology doesn't like me

My computer is dead. It's been dying on me since Christmas break but I haven't gotten it fixed yet. I haven't really been able to do anything on it but every now and then it works. That is up until last night. It's overheated and won't do anything at all. I think it's time I buried it but I'm quite attached to it.
Which brings me to my next point. I haven't been able to upload new pictures. I tried using my computer at work but I can't download my pictures off my camera. Technology doesn't like me. I have some awesome pictures from Kelsey's bridal shower and I can't blog without pictures!
I've gotta figure out how to solve this problem.

Festival of Colors

After 3 years of being in Utah, I finally went to the Festival of Colors. It's a festival put on by the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork.You can find out more information about why they do it here: http://www.utahkrishnas.com/main/page.asp?id=1332.

If you like not being able to breath, eating chalk, and getting shoved into random strangers then you would agree that it was loads of fun. (It really was)
The day was perfect for our mile hike out to the temple from where we parked. There were 2 accidents on the road making our 10 minute drive half and hour. Cars were parked all along the road a mile out from the temple. Crowds of people were happily pushing into each other. People were having fun.

Hooray for the Festival of Colors. I'll admit it was fun. It definitely isn't something you do everyday.
