School

Another school year begins tomorrow. I'm dreading it and looking forward to it at the same time. Is this possible? It's the beginning of my lasts at BYU. Tomorrow marks the beginning of my last fall semester. It's also the first time I've had morning classes since my first semester of freshman year. I'm looking forward to being done, but at the same time can't believe I've gotten to this point already. Hopefully classes turn out well. I'm still working on finalizing my schedule. This probably sounds like rambling and I kind of am. I'm tired but I don't think I can go lay down yet. I'm too nervous for tomorrow. I know I'm a nerd.

In other news, I cut my hair! It's the shortest it's been in years. I would post a picture but frankly I'm too lazy so if you want to see, you'll have to do it in person.

Let's see. The summer is over. I don't know where it went. I still haven't finished my independent study class. I'm a slacker. I only have the final left but I'm freaking myself out. I only have one shot to take it and if I don't pass the final I don't pass the class. I freak out on tests. I know I just need to get it done.

I think this has been random enough for one night. Let's hope I have interesting stories to post about this semester.

I'm free!!!

Well relatively free. I don't have to work until 7 anymore. As a matter of fact I get to leave here shortly. I don't know what I'll do with all these extra hours in the day though. My friends are out of town and I don't want to go home to sit on my couch. I blame all of you for leaving me alone. Just kidding.

People start coming back tomorrow so I'll have plenty of things to do then, hopefully. I want to party (because that's so like me) as much as I can before school starts on Monday. Death. I'm not looking forward to that.

Tribute to Meagan: I'm taking LDS temples on Wednesday night from Cowan. I blame you if I don't like the class. (doubtful)

Moving......yet again

Why do I do this to myself? Ever since April 2008 I have moved into a new apartment every 4 months. This has got to stop!

I started packing again last night. It saddens me that my apartment looks naked. There are boxes everywhere, stuff all over the place. I don't like it. I've accumulated more things since moving into this last apartment and it won't all fit into my car anymore. This presents a new problem....find somewhere to put half my crap until I'm no longer homeless....agh.

A new place will be fun though. New people, new ward, new atmosphere, and I'll be living with Nicole and Emily!

Sundance Full Moon Lift Ride

Friday night

8:45PM-Drive to Sundance
9:00PM-Purchase tickets
9:05PM-Get on the lift
9:06PM-10:00PM-Enjoy the ride

We didn't take our cameras and Katie wondered how we would remember our outing. My answer "I'll blog about it". Still, not having pictures doesn't do it justice.

I'd never been on a lift. I happen to like the ground and heights not so much. Katie was more scared than me however and it probably didn't help that we went with Jacqueline and Jordan who thought it was funny to rock the lift and not have the bar in front of us. We did survive however and it was actually enjoyable. I wish I had a camera that could capture the scenary the way my eyes saw it. The mountains look awesome in the moonlight, the trees below us not so much. I half expected something to grab my dangling legs and pull me out of the chair. Maybe that's the reason I don't watch scary movies too often, because then I like to freak myself out.

So anyway, it was nice. Cold, but nice.

Congratulations Sister Kiwi!

I mean...Sister Kiewra. Andrea calls her Kiwi which is kinda cute don't you think.

So my roommate, Jacqueline, decided she was going on a mission a couple of months ago and she got her mission call yesterday! My guess was that she was going to go some place in Europe. Boy was I wrong.....is the anticipation killing you yet?

She's going to CALIFORNIA SAN FERNANDO......wait for the best part.........SPANISH SPEAKING! When she told me (she opened it alone with only her family) I flipped! I'm so excited for her and excited for me in that I will have another Spanish buddy!

She's got kind of a long wait, she reports November 11 and she'll be in the MTC over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, but then won't have a winter for the other 16 months of her mission. She'll be so close I'll be tempted to drive out to California every now and then and maybe "casually" run into her.
