Holy Guacamole!

So, guess what? I haven't written anything on here in a very long time. I don't usually stay on a computer long enough these days. And if I do, it's for work. But that's why I'm on now. I'm currently babysitting and the kids are napping. I've already cleaned their house, so what now?! Well, they just got a computer, and he pulled it out for me to use before he left. What joy! so guess what! New Post! This month I swear I'll update. For now, a quick catch up list, of things I'll post on and things that happened today and this summer so far that I'm very happy about!

Will post later:
-Morp- details and pictures
-Choir Tour to Seattle- description AND pictures
-17th Birthday
-Prom (oh yes, I WAS asked. crazy. I know)
-End of School Year
-Pioneer Trek Youth conference
-"Bright Readers" (will post later today! no worries!)

Here's all I'll say until I post more. Life is good. I've been very happy. I may be crazy sunburned from trek, and way tired from my "Bright Readers" program, but I'm in a great mood. Summer is great. No school, sleeping in-though I'm trying not to stay up too late, and just me time. In fact! I've been going to summer seminary when I can. And made a whole reading program! I've also been reading a lot still and writing journals. I know, whoda thunk! Still haven't gone swimming yet. But I think I will soon. 7 peaks pass use here I come!

Loving life. Summer is a good time.

end of term is one of the most stressful times of my life. everything has to be finalized and it's a pain in the butt. everything comes all at once. To add on to it this end of term is all my choir stuff, because we are leaving for choir tour in 5 days! so...just know, that things are CRAZY over here. But i'll write as soon as I can, and will definitely have lots to say on Monday the 31st about my Choir Tour trip to Seattle!!!

Missionary Week

So my seminary is doing this thing called "Missionary Week" and let me tell ya. It's crazy. In our seminary class before it started we got our "call's" and my class is supposedly in Australia. Which would rock, English speaking...however, no swimming. But OH well! hahaha. Then they gave us a missionary name tag, on the back it has the "mission rules" that we're supposed to live by for the week. It said,
March 10-14, 2008
- Wake up by 6:30 am/In bed by 10:30 pm
-Scripture/Preach My Gospel Study 20 minutes daily
-Only Church Music (MoTab, EFY, etc.)
-No TV or Movies
-Keep micely groomed (missionary haircuts)
-Cell phone for calling only. No texting.
-Twenty minutes of daily exercise
-Attend all meetings (Seminary, Morningside, Mutual, Feast)
-Try to attend temple once within the week
-No dates until 'released' (Friday night)"

Music, Movies, Bedtime and Texting were the only ones of those I have a problem with. I try to go to bed at that time, but, as with the 11th-12th, when you have to read a 400 page book by Wednesday morning and you have 200 pages left, you just finish it that night...because you have to. But I have only sent 3 texts, which is amazing. Going from 1000 a week (or more) to only 3 so far is quite impressive. I've watched no tv or movies, and haven't even slipped where music is concerned. The Morningside yesterday at 6 am was great! John Bytheway came to speak to us and though I'd heard a lot of it before, it was good to hear and think about...even if it made me late to work, by 10 min. (I was supposed to leave early, and I did...just I kinda lost track of time!) They also asked us to remain in our church clothes for the day, which i did. Overall, it's been cool, but I can't wait for it to be over! hehehe! Well, love you everybody!

ok. what's really up now!

So if you read the old one, a lot has changed! hahaha. Marin is still wonderful, and Karli is amazing, and I miss her like crazy, but Caleb is evil and has no soul. haha. Tia and i have been doing more together. We were a group for morp. Which was a blast. I'll post a blog about that as soon as I get the pics from my date. Speaking of dates! I've started to do that. It's still weird to think I'm old enough to. I've only been on a few, but they've been fun. Shane is really funny, and took me to see P.S. I Love You, which was cute but sad. I cried through the whole's that for a date movie. ahaha. and then there's CORY. Cory has become like my best friend... which he should be. we're...together. I know, I know. He's taken me to a few movies, and we hang a lot. I've made some new friends through he and Austin. Lots of UCAS kids who are kinda nerdy, but let's face it, I'm a nerd. HEHE. I've had a lot of fun being around them. Let's see...what else is up. Still teaching preschool, and I Love it. I have so much fun! I've been sick lately and missed valentines and a few more days, and it's really been awful to miss it. Seth and Jordan are officially on their missions, and I need to write them. Lazy me hasn't yet though. Choir tour is in March!...which is coming up soon. I had a fund raiser and didn't do too bad. Music is very fun, as always. Marin and i have been in a 'rap' mood. haha. not lots, but it can be very fun in the right mind-set. And we still listen to mom's country and all of our fun music that flows throughout the house. So, lots of good stuff. I'll hope to write a few blogs this week. TTYL!


so i finally made this look cool. and i'm sick of it not having anything. so that last post is my last myspace blog post, k? then i'll put in some new posts soon, i hope! hehehe. so much going on! well! ttyl!

catch up!

ok, so here's a random list detailing 'what's up':

-Marin is amazingly fun. but she needs to stop getting grounded.

-Rob is a riot and always knows how to make me feel better. He also is prolly the coolest, chillest person ever, and anyone who knows him will probably agree!

-Brett is crazy fun hahhaha

-Caleb's so sweet and always knows what to say

-Karli is the BEST person ever (haha. love you girl!)

-Trent and Logan are gonna kill me some day. His idea of fun is seeing how close they can come to death while causing as much trouble as possible. So fun...

-Tia is a great balancer. I miss her like crazy.

-Mom is mondo busy, but still a blast, and my best friend(though of course not in a list w/my other friends)!

-The girls at my work are way fun, and I wish I wasn't such a chicken so I could actually talk to them.
~Kristi is great with rules, and always know how to make a child feel special.
~Amy is funny and crazy, has the best stories, and is a fantastic teacher.
~Mrs. Hopkin is great with rules and regulations and can make sure anything runs smoothly; and no matter how strict she is, she's so sweet and caring.
~Treg is a doll who can make anyone feel special and welcome.
~Rachel is almost always late, but talking to her when she's not is so fun.

-The kids at my work are adorable. But I do have my favorites:
~Ben: he's very picky, and little things upset him easily. But he's such a little doll. He always wants to play baseball, and he quotes movies and games all the time. My favorite will always be when we play with instruments, he wants the guitar. Once, he started pretending to smash it. When I asked him why, he said, "that's what they do on Guitar Hero when they win. And I'm so amazing, I totally won." haha.
~Blaze: he's so sweet. he can control his anger better than anyone I've ever seen. When things upset him he either a)runs around in a circle b)tells or c)just goes to play somewhere else. But once, Gavin would NOT leave him alone. Even with my intervention. Blaze had had too much, and suddenly i see him burst into tears and run to time out. I asked him why he was there and he said (tears overflowing) "I hit Gavin.....2 times......"
~Gavin: he's first in in the morning (i find myself racing to get there before him), and he always wants to help with my cleaning jobs. He has a speech impediment and has a hard time getting his point across, but I'm starting to understand him, and he's always there to make me smile.

-I've gotten used to physical therapy, and have really noticed my back getting better. I'll miss it when I'm better because it seems like the only time i have when I can have mom's attention, so we can just talk.
~John (my physical therapist), though there was the awful incident with my back and homecoming (Which was AWFUL) he really is a great guy...and he certainly knows how to get mom to get us ice cream! hehehe.
~Esther is adorable and hilarious.
~Jordan is going to MONGOLIA on his mission. cool stuffs. whenever he comes in, he starts laughing and it's very funny. (and the whole thinking about him leaving on his mission makes me laugh cuz Dan's going to Nebraska. hahaha.)

-Speaking of Missions, my big bro turned his papers in. Sis. Church sent an e-mail saying we should know by Oct. 24th where he's going. They have everyone guessing and I still can't believe Seth is going away for two years. Haha, we'll prolly talk more this way. Cuz I'm totally gonna write.

-For choir tour we're going to Seattle, can I just say I'm way excited!?! I just have to start saving, cuz i wanna pay for as much of it myself as possible. I'd feel bad making my parents pay for it. Another point of interest w/choir: our first concert is the 18th...and believe me I'm nervous. I didn't take choir last year, and well, I feel really rusty with a lot of wonderfully talented singers.

-I did go to homecoming. It's not a rumor. Caleb was very fun and nice. And it was fun. Especially dinner and the ride home. haha. That night was also great cuz Deny and Jenn came down, not for me going to homecoming, but it was great that they were there. I miss having them around!

-I'm driving now. But I mostly drive the big, brown, 12 passenger van, or the little white mini-van. I keep contacting grampa, cuz I would really like to try and buy gramma's old car from him. That would be great.

-No boyfriend. thank heavens. there is no 'kinda taken' anymore. It's better w/o one. Friends are definitely best. (and i don't care if Tyler says i have commitment issues...I'm too young to be stuck w/a guy anyways!)

-Music is still a highlight of life. Between choir music, the 'GET PSYCHED MIX' with Marin, fun music from friends, mom's new music (eh...not that great. why aunt Dina got her into country I'll never know) and the stuff I play cuz I can get all my sisters dancing, I almost always have something on. The house is NEVER quiet... all the people (my family plus an almost never ending stream of visitors) plus the music...ya. no quiet. hahaha.

Well, this is really long, and I think that's almost everything. Hopefully I'll start writing more often with smaller segments of stuff. haha. Well, lots of loves to everyone.


p.s. yes rob, we do rock the world. hahaha.
