Let it Snow!!

Hooray! Finally the coldness has a purpose! Being cold is ok as long as you have snow to go with it!! Today has been wonderful, there are even trucks driving around plowing snow everywhere all day because it just keeps coming! Ok, I will try to stop with the exclamation points now. But finals are next week, so that is good. I will be all done with this terrible school and on my way… to NEW YORK! (Sorry, I did it again.) Then I will come home for a few weeks and move out with some of my friends, which will hopefully be awesome. I don't want to end up hating any of them like some people do. But we'll just have to see what happens won't we. I'm happy, life is good, and… yeah.

Dang it, I did it again. Why do I always erase entire entries that I write? Oh well. I'll do it again. Today I was psychic. A while ago I told Chris Money that I am psychic like him, and he asked how. But I couldn't remember a specific situation. Now I have one! So, Chris Money, here ya go.

Today I was in my room listening to Death Cab for Cutie. I thought to myself "I bet my rommmate's boyfriend Zack likes this. I bet he asks me if that is what I am listening to if he comes in here while it's on." Not more than 10 minutes later, my roommate came home. I didn't notice that her boyfriend was with her until he asked "Is this Death Cab for Cutie?" Yeah pretty much I'm amazing. He is going to borrow it sometime now and yea anyway I just thought that was kinda funny.

Yep. Thanksgiving holiday was wonderful and I had a ton of fun. I didn't get to play with Ryan as much as was planned, but otherwise it was pretty much a perfect weekend. Now I'm back at school, and finals are so soon!! Only two weeks away. School is almost over, then I'll be back down in Provo. After that, who knows! Life is crazy.

Locked Out

I locked myself out of my room today. It pretty much sucks hard core. But I will just have to get over it. If it happens again I will have to start paying fees. How am I so stupid? Well, I had everything ready to go for today, I went to bed early, but then went and played with a friend and forgot to put my key back in my backpack. Can you say smart? I sure can't

The rest of today was pretty much reallly boring. I went to go volunteer, but guess what? No one was there that gives me things to do so I had to turn around and come straight on home. It was actually kind of interesting because I had the same bus driver both ways. She lauged at me. And then on the way home there was this weird guy that was telling us about how he is a Jew and what Jews beleive. So here's your Jewish Beleifs 1010 class: The Jews do not beleive in Christ. In any way, shape, or form. He did not come, and he will not come. They are not looking forward for anyone to save them. They are just living. There is no hell. When we die we just disapear. They do not follow the law of Moses. Oh wait, but they do follow God's Law, which was given to Moses on Mt. Sianai and also other parts during the 40 years of wandering. They pretty much just beleive in God. He is everywhere, in everything. That's about all they ever think about or beleive in. In other words, this guy was nutso. But this reminds me of what happened the last time I was on my way home. It was raining and the bus windshield wipers were going weird. On of them was going at exactly half the speed of the other. Then when the rain stopped they were still going. Very annoying, very distracting.

So this week will probably be pretty boring. I got a job finally, but I must say it's pretty boring. I am just crawling around on the floor with this little 18 month old girl for two hours in the most inconvenient time of the day. And as soon as I'm done all the shuttles around my school stop and go park. So I have to walk all the way home in the freezing and darkness. Yesterday was my first day and it took me about half an hour to get home, and it was FREEZING. I hope I can find a faster way to do this. I might bring my bike and ride it to the trax station when I'm done. Maybe that will be closer, who knows!

I also need to do some volunteering at the deaf school. That would be cool if I actually felt like I was doing something, but usually I just sit there and help my friend's mom edit letters to parents. So hopefully I will find a way to actually work in some classrooms or do something a little bit more exciting. We'll just have to see!

Well, other than that life is pretty boring. I have a lot of really fun friends up here but I am not sure exactly if any of them are really like best friend-ish. We'll see.

Hey Ya'll

What up world? Ha ha I am not special enought to use crazy slang like that. In cas anyone is wondering, I am really tired and not quite here tonight. But I haven't said anything for a very long time, so I thought I might as well. Life is great, and I am muchas happy. Tonight was awesome, I got to go hear Ryan announce a game at UVSC, and he is pretty much amazing. He was way fun to listen to.

Last week was pretty crazy and weird, I was tired all the time and I didn't get much sleep. But this week was mostly a lot better, so I'm glad about that. Life is fun and things are just turning out to be really awesome. I decided that I will probably go to UVSC next semester, and hopefully rent a house in Provo with my friends Brittney and Puddle. That would make me so very very happy. But we'll have to see. I hope we can find a place. Does anyone know of good places to look? We want somewhere that can have pets but isn't super expensive. So yeah. I hope everyone's life is better, see ya later!

Ooo la la!

Guess what? Ryan came down this weekend and we drove all the way down to Summerhay's and bought me a harp string! So after he left I went right over to my sister's house to put it in. I tied the harpers knot (pretty nifty, eh?), and strung the string through the hole in the soundboard so I could wrap it around the pin and tune it into place. Well, right away I noticed something was wrong. The string was bigger thant the strings on either side. Much bigger. In fact, the exact size of the string an octave below. That's right, I'm so stupid I got the wrong octave. I got the wrong octave!!!!! I was so dissapointed. But there was nothing I could do. But then, to my great surprise, my sister let me take her car to Lyon and Healy to get the right strind!!! You see, my sister also plays the harp, but more for fun because she stopped taking lessons several years ago. She had also been bothered by the lack of stringness, so she was eager to get another one. So I went and got it, and guess what? I BROKE it when E was stringing it. I was tuning it, and realized that I had done it wrong, which is no surprise because I have never done it right, but it always still works. And this time it would have worked still, but I wanted to do it right. So I undid it and started to do it the right way. But because I had done it the wrong way first, the string had already bent to that so it didn't like to be changed and it snapped. And lucky me again!! They always seem to sell the smaller strings three times longer than they need to be, so I just started all over again and did it right, finally. The only annoying thing was the nature of every newly strung string: you have to tune it about every minute. They always go out of tune so fast. But it was worth it to be able to play, I spent the entire afernoon there. Yay!

School is fun and life is good. I hope it's the same for ya'll!

I decided that music is magic. The past few days when I haven't been very happy all I've had to do is turn on some music that I really like and all of a sudden I feel a lot better. Even last night when I was studying for my midterm I was all of a sudden full of energy and just happy when I turned on Hairspray. And now I am listening to Savage Garden and it is just wonderful and fabulous! I love music. And I played my little harp yesterday. It is not even close to as pretty and as fun as my pedal harp, but my pedal harp has a broken string so I haven't really even played a harp for two weeks. But when I sat down to play it was so nice! I need to get another string but I don't have a car so I can't really get anywhere that sells one. I'm dying! oh well. There is nothing I can do about it.

Ballerina's and Tofu

I am back at the U and it's not too bad. I again can't eat whenever I want, I don't get to see my daddy very much, I miss my siblings, and my mommy told me she didn't have something I needed, but when I got back and found out she did, she said that she had told me that. But it is a lie. So now I am back home without it, and it would have been so easy to get had I known it was there. Bleh. oh well, what can ya do? Not much.

I have a huge midterm this Friday, and I was going to do decent, but now I have to do amazing because the teacher yelled at me today for missing class and sleeping when I was there. But guess what? I have only missed class once, and that was at the beginning of the term. And today my eye happened to be swollen, dry, and burning. You try to keep your eyes open when they feel like that. So anyway, now I have this stupid character flaw where I have to do amazing now so he feels stupid for reprimanding me. And so my life is devoted to studying. AHHH!!! I'm already sick of it. Oh well. My daddy will be happy that I got a good grade. Wish me luck!

Friday, October 07, 2005


Well hello everybody. Guess what? I got to come home for the long weekend. It's fall break at the U right now, so I am home just chillin and I worked Thursday and Friday. I miss it a lot. I wish I could just come home and work some more before I had to go to school. Oh well. School is good too. I like most of my classes, but I really need to study more for a stupid midterm I have next week. Eh, I'll get over it.

I hope everyone else out there is doing ok. I have made a new goal in my life to not get so mad and be such a girl. I am generally more forgiving than most people, that is something that comes really easily for me. Now I am going to work on not getting mad, frustrated, or bugged in the first place. People do things, and because of those things other people have every right to feel let down, disappointed, hurt, used, manipulated, or back stabbed. But I'm going to try not to feel that way when it happens to me. It's hard. I feel like I know the most logical way to do things, and when other people think or do differently it really bugs me a lot. So then I let people get on my nerves just because they aren't as nice as I think they are supposed to be. Well, maybe some people don't think it's rude to try to become best friends with everyone you know and then hang out with them without you (oh, by the way, "everyone" is not exaggerating, so then you would have zero friends). Or lie to you because they thought they would save you from pain (when really it causes you more). Or maybe doesn't do any favors for you while asking a lot more than just a little from you. Or thinking it's ok to NOT get you a birthday present. Or be bugged by something about you for a very long time and pretend there's nothing wrong, when they could just ask you about it. Or just do what you ask them even if they don't want to- just because you asked them. Or have something of yours and lie to you when you ask them if they do (are you sure, I saw it in your room). Maybe none of those things are rude, but sometimes I get hurt when people do them to me, especially when it seems they are doing it on purpose to make me unhappy. So it is my new resolution and goal to not be bugged by them, or any other petty little things that come up. Even when my suitemates give my roommate and I a forever long lecture about cleaning the bathroom when it's our turn (we cleaned it a day late), and then they skip their turn entirely, on the grounds that we didn't do the floor good enough last time so it's like they had to do double duty. I am not going to let it bother me.

Wednesday, September 28, 2005


Well, I studied pretty much the entire day. Bleh. Oh well. I need to do it if I want to do better in my classes. I have a midterm coming up that i really need to be prepared for. I should probably do more studying than I do.

Life is still pretty much boring most of the time, except when Ryan comes to play. We are so funny! Feel lucky you don't have to watch us, because we might get annoying sometimes. *sToRy TiMe* On Sunday Ryan was with me at my grandparents house and I was lying on his lap, and my dad came down the stairs. When Ryan heard his voice, he SHOVED ME OFF ONTO THE GROUND. Yes, you heard correctly, he shoved me onto the ground. But it was funny, and I was ok, so don't worry.

Ok. I think I'm done now.

Tuesday, September 20, 2005


How depressing! I don't even know what I just pressed but you don't get to read about my cool Psychology studying or my suitemates getting mad about the bathroom and how everything got fixed. Oh well. I'll just continue with whatever I was going to say and if you really want to know about the rest I'll tell you later.

My classes are ok, I finally decided that studying is a good thing, and I decided this in enough time to write papers and be ready for tests, so that's good. I really like most of my classes content (except for psychology because we are learing about a stupid stupid part of it right now. But it should get better), but I just have this problem where when I sit in a classroom I get tired and sleep... not a very good habit I don't think. Oh well.

The very coolest thing that I do up here: I eat lunch with some deaf people on campus. I've only been twice, but there's a "deaf table" at the Union Building every day from 12 to 1, so I went. It is a little bit scary to walk up to a bunch of deaf people you've never seen before when you don't even have much experience talking in sign language to anyone except who learned it with you so yo know all the same things. But I did it, and I love it. If everyone knew sign language I would use it all the time. It is so much better than speaking I can't even handle it. So far I've met a deaf professor, a Librarian, and a student, plus a hearing gal that works in the department of communication sciences and disorders. Wow. I am pretty lucky.

And of course, my little sister is amazing!! I went to her premire for her movie last night! It is a super cheesy kids movie that illustrates the story of Alma the elder. She is a modern day girl that is afraid to get baptized because her friends at school were making fun of her and telling her that they wouldn't be her friend if she did. So the missionaries told her the story of when Abinadi came before Kind Noah and Alma risked his life by believing and sharing what he heard with others. She was pretty much adorable in it.

This weekend was awesome. I got to come home for most of it, andI love being home. I got to see my family, go to church at 11, play the piano and eat whenever I wanted (except that I was lucky enough to come home on a fast Sunday weekend so there was some time that I couldn't eat). It was way easier to see Ryan, and we had a lot of fun together. But then tonight I had to come back here to this oh-so-dreary and lonesome place. Not to help at all was the fact that right before I left, some of my friends that had read Ryan's blog commented on the fact that they would be suspicious because of the lengthy one he had written on Sue. I told them that Sue was his best friend, and he had written one about me, too. Then they admitted they hadn't read that one. So I felt a little better but still, he had left my house early to play with Sue even after pouting about my parents and grandparents taking me home instead of him. So I got here to this godforsaken place, and read what he had written about Sue. I trust Ryan. And Sue, don't get me wrong I love you too. I wish I got to spend more time with you before you had to move. But I hope no one thinks I'm too possessive in saying that I am still pretty bugged.

Happy Birthday!!!!

It's my lttle sister's birthday today! I hope everyone is excited for my little sister that just turned 11!!! She is probably the second most missed family member ofmine, next to my daddy. Well, life got a little better today. This weekend was really hard for me, but today it was just better. I went to my dance class and it made me so super happy! I got to talk to my Honeyman, and I called Lauren to say happy birthday. All my other classes are still pretty much boring, except I think I will really like my classical mythology class. I think the worst one will be my psychology class, and it is taking up 5 of my credits. So, that means I will spend more time on psychology then anything else. yick. Oh well. I will get over it. So have a happy day everyone!

U of U!!

Why hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I am fantastic because I got to see my Honeyman yesterday!! Yay for Megan's sweetheart. And he informed me that Chris Money and himself were thinking I needed to blog. So… okee dokee!

College is pretty much stupid and boring so far. "Here's your syllabus. Come to class. This is when your test dates are." Gosh I can't believee how boring some teachers are. But one of mine came in wearing a toga, joker hat, and pretending he was drunk looking for a party. I think he might turn out to be pretty cool.

My roommates are interesting enough. One of them is catholic and her boyfriend lives three doors down (good band). So that can get kinda awkward when I am trying to get ready i.e. change my clothes and her boyfriend is sitting there. It's a good thing I can go to my other roommates room when I need to. One of my suitemates is a prep from Northridge in Layton. At least we get along, even though I think her ideas are sometimes way too stupid/selfish. My other suitemate just got here two nights ago. I don't know her very well, but I do know she was at the Real game yesterday. Lucky.

So life is pretty much boring and lonely. I haven't met anyone that I particularly like yet, but what can ya do? I don't hate anyone, but there is no way any of these people can become my best friend that I actually trust. Oh, and lucky me I am staying in the dorms that everyone decides to smoke and drink in front of. A party with alcohol was already busted on my floor. Yum. (No offense to those of you that enjoy that kind of thing. One of the guys I hang out with is one of them. I just don't like so much the fact that there is so much right next to me. Please don't ever invite me over for that kind of stuff.)

Well, I'm sorry I hardly ever post on other people's blogs. I always start then feel like a weirdo so I delete it. Oh well. And is there a time stamp that says when someone comments on a blog? I think it's annoying to have to guess the day someone put something on a blog. Just because someone posted something at 9:56 doesn't mean when you look at it at 10:00 they did it right before you looked. So if someone wants to let me know how to find out what day, that would be appreciated. Otherwise, maybe people can put the date in their comment when they post it. I know its fafetched'd, but I would like it!

Sunday, August 14, 2005


Why hello everyone!! this is the blog that Ryan just made for me, so now i guess i am supposed to put something on it. but i am not a very open or trusting person, so i dont know what to say. i dont want to tell you all of my innermost secrets, although i'm sure you'd love to hear them. and the rest of my life is just work, ryan, work, ryan. And as much as i love talking about Ryan my special man friend Honeyman, i sometimes get annoyed at other people when they can't talk about anything but their boyfriend so i don't want to be like that. but he is pretty much the best thing i have right now. i would be much not as happy if i didn't have him. he's a sweetheart to me every day. i will miss him when i move away. (even though it's not that far away. oh well.) ok. i'm done. Ü
