I'm sorry that this is all I talk about on the blog, but this past year of school I have learned just how much Heavenly Father loves me because of how blessed I am.

Life is so wonderful!

on another note, here are some recent highlights of my life:

-a new job that I love
-an awesome Chemistry class all about teaching methods
-Hawaii in two weeks
-indecision about what to do with my life
-frustration about boys (what else is new?)
-watching many Bollywood films
-all my friends getting engaged
-cooking more

Sometimes you just have to laugh a lot. and pray a lot. Life can be challenging, but it is so beautiful and magical and great.

I love to work out! Sometimes I wake up and I really don't want to go, but when I do it feels amazing! These are some awesome reasons to exercise.

1. Exercise controls weight.

2. Exercise combats health conditions and diseases.

3. Exercise improves mood.

4. Exercise boosts energy.

5. Exercise promotes better sleep.

6. Exercise is fun!

proof that exercise works.

writer's block and twilight

um, so all I have to say is I don't understand how Bella gets chased after by two incredibly hot boys.

she isn't exactly the most pretty thing, and she is pretty clumsy too. not to be mean haha it's just funny.

nevertheless, Divine Comedy this week is a parody of Breaking Dawn. I am very excited.

I need new ideas of what to write about. so I am not just writing boring lame blog posts all the time.

what are some fun things for me to write about? give me your opinions!

I have decided that one of my talents/curses is that I feel emotions so strongly.

like how much my friends uplift me and want me to be better. like how I would do anything for them.

like how much I am going to miss Park Plaza and how much of a home it has been to me.

like how I feel the overwhelming love of the Savior when I need it most.

like how sometimes I can be so confused about life and it makes me nervous.

like how my dream last night was so sad and it caused me to be very confused in the morning.

like how much love I feel for my wonderful family.

like how I am just laughing and happy right now as my roommate acts like the coach of the basketball game she is playing on the x-box. and I hear one of the guys in our ward playing his trombone outside.

on the whole, I love feeling emotions so strongly. It makes me feel so alive. and as long as I don't let these emotions completely take over my life, they can be a great blessing.

The Samuelson's gave the devotional today and it was really good! It talked about our whole BYU experience and some things we can do to become more devoted to BYU and to be better students. a couple things that stood out to me:

"We are all an example, whether we choose to be or not."

"Modesty is more about respect than about what clothing you choose to wear."

"We should spend more time each day reading and less time on social media. This will help us to learn to read critically and also to write better."

new job

let's just say that I am very excited for my job.

I had training today and I am so excited!

The testing center is going to be a cool place to work. no late fees, no lines, and getting my own tests.

seeing lots of people I know.

not having to make people fast food.

the greatest parts (or hardest) will be making sure people don't cheat and warning people that they need to shave.

good times :)

got everything worked out :)

I am just adding on a semester or two of college. less stress. more time to improve myself. and no doubts about going to Hawaii! It's going to be fantastic :)

and Aspen Grove this summer! yay!

Decisions are so hard.

Go to Hawaii and have to work super hard and die trying to catch up? or not go and be super depressed because I missed out? I am leaning towards go :) but still. It's crazy.

Take summer classes so I don't die during my last semesters? or work at Aspen Grove one last time? I am leaning towards summer class because with a job during the school year I won't need Aspen Grove as much. as long as I budget my money well.

I am having trouble with this.

top moments of 2011

well, everyone is doing it and so I got started thinking... what were my favorite parts of 2011? here are some highlights, in no particular order!

  • taking my first education classes and getting to teach chemistry. and learning that even if it is hard, I love it. I have met some fantastic friends in my classes as well.
  • learning about how much my Heavenly Father loves me and strengthening my testimony more than ever before. becoming a new person through the gospel.
  • Aspen Grove. The second summer was magical. I learned so many amazing things, I lived with the most fantastic girls ever, and working with five year olds and George helped me grow.
  • my cousin's wedding. it was so beautiful and I had a great time.
  • my first solo roadtrip to go to Disneyland with some of my favorite people ever.
  • Zion's. a weekend of fun, lots of crazy sudden decisions, and sleeping in shady trailer parks. but a blast nonetheless.
  • randomly deciding to move apartments in the middle of fall semester. Sure, it was a ton of work and a hard decision, but I got my own room for two months and Katie and Kristina have taught me a lot.

  • learning that boys are so fun to hang out with. usually I just have my group of friends. and they are mostly girls. but this year I started hanging out with guys and being a little more outgoing around them, and even flirting. crazy. and it is so much fun. and I have even gone on some dates. YAY!
  • Ashley getting engaged. I am so happy for her and I love to hang out with her and Hayden. I am super stoked to be a bridesmaid. let the wedding obsession begin.

  • living with Mayra. Our friendship started from that and she is so fantastic that I am grateful I met her that way. plus she is [was] an awesome roommate!

  • losing almost 20 pounds. almost forgot this one, but it was a major accomplishment. and so exciting :)

Happy 2012 to you all! I am super stoked for another exciting year! (and my last full year of college, which is kind of freaking me out.)
