Yes exactly

"Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy."
Gordon B. Hinckley

That's all I ask for :)

Manhattan II

I want this in my living room with a nice thick black frame. Please and thank you.

Thank you kind stranger

Thank you kind girl who helped me scrape my car this morning.

Thank you for spending those few extra minutes in the cold when you could have very easily gotten in your car and driven away.

Are my screams loud enough for you to hear me?

Yes it's another song.

Do you know what the scariest feeling in the world is? I'm pretty sure you could come up with a few things, but for me it happened this morning as I was driving to work.

The scariest feeling in the world is stepping on your breaks and your car continuing to move. My tires weren't rolling anymore, my whole car was just sliding. Scary, especially when it happens at the University intersection. I'm getting better at this whole driving in the snow though because I finally got it stop, so yes I'm still alive and in 1 piece.

Stupid snow. You should be plowed.

Somethin' filled up my heart with nothin'

(Disclaimer: Guess the song that the title comes from and no I'm not depressed. It was the song I was listening to as I wrote this post. I'm running out of ideas for titles so whichever song I'm listening to will end up as the title.)

Last semester I didn't go on a single date. Not a one.

Fast forward to this semester and it's a different story. I've been on a date every Friday night since the beginning of the semester. Granted it's only been 3 weeks but still. I've never done this before, ever. Welcome to the sad story that is my life. Anyway, it's been fun but I don't think the trend is going to continue much longer. Maybe I should flirt more. Eh.

Date 1: Snowshoeing at Brighton!

Date 2: Applebee's, bowling, Rock Band

Date 3: El Salvador Restaurant, black light mini golf, movie

And they were all with different people. I'm real good at 1st dates.

We'll meet again by and by

Saturdays are the best and worst day of the week.

Best
I get to wake up whenever I dang well please.
I don't have to leave my apartment if I don't want.
I can sit in my PJs all day.
I don't have to walk out in the cold.
I can play Rock Band.
I see my roommates.

Worst
I don't get very much homework done. (I blog instead)
I don't really see people besides my roommates.
It's over too quickly.

Oh Saturdays.....I am however attempting to do some homework right now. It's coming slowly but at least I've opened my book and a word file.

The title doesn't have anything to do with the post. It's a line from Dixie Lullaby.

Snow Shoeing!

I don't have class on Fridays so while I was sitting at work I text Kim and asked her what she was doing that night. I was not about to spend my first Friday night back in Provo home alone. She didn't want to do the traditional watch a movie activity so instead we ended up going snow shoeing! I was a little reluctant at first because it's cold outside and I don't do well with the cold, but I really really didn't want to be alone so I decided to go for it.

I wore 3 pairs of socks, 3 pants, 2 long sleeve shirts, a hoodie, a jacket, 2 pairs of gloves, a scarf, ear warmers, and a beanie. I was nice and toasty. We drove out to Brighton and commenced our ascent straight up the mountain. It was so fun! You'd move up 2 steps and slide down 5. It was definitely a work out, but disappointingly I'm not sore today. The best part was coming off the mountain and sliding down the whole way.

It's always hard for me to get excited about doing anything out in the cold but I'm definitely glad I agreed to this. After 4 years in Provo, I'm finally getting around to doing things Provo worthy.

Graduation

I know that I change my mind a lot! and it's happened again.

I was overly ambitious and applied for April graduation but I've changed my mind yet again and will now be graduating in August. The work load was just going to be ridiculous and I was going to spend a lot of time crying if I kept the 18 credits I was registered for. So now I'm down to 15 credits along with my independent study class of 3 credits. I am moving my graduation date back to August and I will be ok.

Now I need to tell my boss I will still be here and that I would like to continue working here. I bet he'll laugh at me and my going back and forth. At least I hope he laughs instead of getting frustrated with me.

Hello 2010

It's been good thus far.....

over the break I:
  • went downtown
  • walked the Riverwalk (with all the pretty lights)
  • did some shopping
  • played pretty intense games of Go Fish, Uno, and Apples to Apples
  • saw Ben, Wendell, and Matt
  • celebrated New Years at a YSA dance (lame)

  • saw Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel with the family (I would of rather seen Princess and the Frog)
  • took Mom and Andrea to Salsalitos (so good)

and I'm down to my last 24 hours in Texas. I'm starting to hyperventilate just a little bit.
