Well I dyed my hair!
In the winter I go a dark cherry chocolate.
In the summer I go bright red.
So, since it's now "summer" I am now a red head again.

So I did photo shop these photos but it does show the color.

So you guys like?
I love.

Four Days.

I have accomplished yet another year of my college career.
I can't believe this semester is already over.
I know we've already discussed this in my blog but it's worth saying again.

So, Jessica, my roommate just posted a video of me cleaning my room.
It is hill-air-ee-us!
I really am a pack rat.
Click here if you would like to watch it on her blog.

So today I took my Chemistry final and CSIS final.
CSIS was a waste of my time. Seriously, I despised that class. Sorry to those who like it or going into computer whatever. I'm sorry, I just didn't enjoy it. One bit.
Chemistry. Oh Chemistry. I salute you Chemistry majors. I bow to your feet. I cherish the ground you walk on. Okay, yeah you get the picture. Chemistry is HARD. I took the final; 90 questions, multiple choice, 90 points possible. I felt pretty good about it. Let's see if my feelings tell the truth.

I'm done.
I will never walk on SUU campus as a student there again. It really breaks my heart. Well this is if I don't like UVU. Which I heard it's a good school. I only have 3 semesters left. So I'll just buck up either way.
You've been good to me Southern Utah University, you've been good to me.

Now onto the sappy sad stuff.
I have lived in Cedar City for 20 years, 8 months, and 22 days.
That's my entire life people.
Now I'm just getting up and moving to Orem like I have nothing to hold me back?
I have plenty of reasons I could stay: family, friends, schooling, memories, future plans, etc. However, I'm growing up and feeling like I need an adventure. That's when I decided to move up North and start a life up there. I'm sure I'll end up moving back down to Cedar. Ya never know though. It's all a surprise. Life's a surprise.
I'm stoked to see where my life takes me.
Do you ever think about where we possibly could be in 5 years [I love comments on my blog by the way. So don't be shy to answer my questions.]?

Then SUU [again]. Ah, good old thunder birds.
Southern Utah University is a phenomenal school. I would highly recommend it to anyone. You cedar haters better not rain on my parade. :)

Family. Don't even get me started. I'm going to miss my family like crazy. I have been commanding my sister, Lydia, to get Skype so we can have little family get together via internet! I'm going to miss them so much. Just gotta realize, I'll be back as much as possible to visit.

Well I'm going to go do... nothing. I'm done. For three months at least.

Goodnight all.

p.s. sorry for never posting pictures, videos, or fun things. I did put a link in there though. Next blog I'll try and make sure there are pictures.

Motivational Problem

Am I the only one who can't seem to get anything done?
I need motivation. Help!

T0day after Jessica and I went to the gym, we went and got our storage unit.
It's happening! It's really happening.
I'm moving. In like five days. Five!
I can't believe it!

So off subject for a second.
I love having roommate scripture study/discussion!
Not only does it bring me closer to the worlds best friends, but I'm actually understanding the scriptures! It's phenomenal [I love that word-- phenomenal].

I have one more day of my classes [I feel like this semester just started-- I swear it did].
On Wednesday I have my Chemistry final at three. Bah! I don't know how that's going to go.
Hence the fact this blog is called Motivational Problem.
I studied for probably thirty minutes today.
Yeah, pretty much fell asleep.

I hope you all are studying and doing something with your lives :)
Being responsible sucks sometimes.
Oh well, ya gotta do whatcha gotta do.

Eh. Goodnight.

So I went to St George with the roommates tonight!
Oh man can I just tell you how much I LOVE the weather down there?
Yeah, well I'm telling you. LOVE.
Aubrie went down at four so she could make it to a session at the temple [it was so perfectly white against that perfectly red rock].
So after Jessica got off work, she came home and then we left to St. Geezy.
Right when we pulled into the Temple parking lot Aubs told us she was done with her session. Can you say perfect timing.
Wow, I'm saying perfect a lot huh? I'm just in a perfect mood.

Isn't it crazy how much trust is in this world?

We trust people with so many things.

1. The leaders of the world. Although some of us don't "vote" for those who won, we have to try and trust them. Trust that they will take care of us.
2. Family. We're born to trust them. Then sometimes they do something and it hurts-- our trust was just broken.
3. Friends. We choose friends throughout our lives. I've came to realize it's not easy. I'm just grateful that the friends I do have right now are great people to trust.
4. People we fall in love with [sappy? eh I don't care]. We trust them with our hearts [this has been on my mind a lot lately], to take care of us, to love us back. Sometimes it doesn't work out and that trust isn't there anymore. Sometimes it doesn't work out, but you still have that trust for them. Trust in faith that things happen for a reason. It just boggles my mind. The things our hearts do.
5. My most favorite. We can trust in the Lord. Like I said, there is a lot of trust in this world, sometimes people break that trust for us, things don't work out and we lose- sometimes keep- that trust with us. However, we trust in the Lord, He will never break that trust, it'll always work out and we'll always have it. He trusts us.

Well I'm sorry that my posts have been a little down lately. I just have a lot of stress and things happening. Which results in a lot of thinking. So therefore, this lovely blog was created.

Goodnight, all!

We have to move on eventually.

So this blog is going to be about me moving again.

It's so surreal now.
Yesterday, Jessica and I started packing our stuff. You may all be thinking why we are starting now when we have twenty days till we actually move. Well explanation: yesterday was the only Saturday we had. Next Saturday we're both going to be out of town, then the Saturday after that is the final packing and cleaning and such [taking stuff to the DI!]. Then the week after the last Saturday is going to be uber stressful with finals coming up. I've never been so grateful for my finals being papers. I love writing papers-- never thought I would say that but I honestly would rather write papers than take tests.

Speaking of tests, I took a Chemistry test on Friday. I hope I passed it. I'm really stressing out about it. I'm doing poor in the class and this test is a make it or break it type of thing.

Anyway, back to topic.

So yes, we're moving in TWENTY days! The leases are signed and faxed to them and everything. After Jessica takes her final Monday morning, we are heading straight to work and then after that we go to the apartments, get our keys, and then start moving our stuff in. It's going to be a LONG day I tell ya.
Don't worry guys, I'll be back plenty to come see you all. Cedar is my home. I have family and friends that I'll miss dearly. I'll be an active "skyper."

Well here are some sad pictures after packing:
^ That's the kitchen [well duh]. Clean is good! Not this clean though :(

^ My mantel had cute decorations on it. Tons of books and movies in the book shelfs. Now look at it. Ugh it's so sad.

Next room? My bedroom.
Wish me luck.

If you're happy and you know it... SMILE!

So today has probably been one of the most emotional stressful days I have had in a long time. A lot of stuff has been happening and when all of it is thrown together... well it's nasty.

I came to realization though... I'm not a sad, angry, lonely person. I'm a happy, joyous, friendly person. So if you saw me today and I didn't look happy, well just know that I sincerely apologize if I gave you a weird look. I just wasn't happy today. That's all. I just laid in bed and listened to some music [personal therapy] and got to thinking and now I'm better. When I was thinking I just thought that we never know what's going to happen next. It could be a lot worse. Right now we have money, friends, boy problems, school to worry about, but there are probably a lot of people out there that have it a lot worse. So smile and let the world know that the worldly attractions wont distract us anymore.

A shout out to all my friends/"school goers" who say hi to me on campus, thank you! A simple hi makes my day. I will return the favor. We only have three more weeks of school left. Isn't the so great?

If you're happy and you know it, SMILE (if you watch the youtube family, Shaytards you'll get it).

p.s. someone on facebook reported my blog as "abusive." Why they would do that? I don't know. I honestly think it's hilarious. If it weren't for the blockers, I would share this insight on facebook.

Okay so I said that I have a secret. If you have been reading my blog, you know.

Well the secret is...

My twin sister is going to be a Mommy!

I have been waiting so long to blog about this. She is now a month and a half into her pregnancy. Her and John think they're going to have a baby boy. My big sister, Lydia, thinks it'll be a girl. Who knows. I hope it's a boy :) I need another nephew.

Here is the baby at 6 weeks and 2 days.
It's sideways. Tilt your head to the left :)

[I love you Jennifer. With all my heart. You're going to be a great Mom and John is going to be a great Dad. Together, you two can do this. You better tell me if you need anything/help. That's my nephew/niece. I already love that baby with all my heart as well. Mazel Tov :)]

Welcome to the family "lil bean."
