Whatever's on my mind.

I haven't been so good with this whole blogging thing. This semesters is already so crazy. I really do enjoy my classes though which is such great news. I love my major (previously stated a million +1 times). I usually go about my day keeping an open mind to what I can blog about. Clearly I have failed to do so. I can't think of anything.

How 'bout I talk about what comes to mind? 

This semester, I have signed up for two institute classes. Scripture Study and The Principles To A Productive Life. So far, I love them. I'm famous for signing up for a class and go strong for the first half of the semester, then stop going "because school gets too busy." Pft. Enough of the nonsense. This semester I will finish both of them. School can come second. I keep up with the reading and assignments as I would with secular schooling. Have you signed up for a class? If not, you should. Blessings will come your way. 

I miss my nieces and nephew in St. George so much. I haven't seen them since Thanksgiving. That is way too long. I have been down to St. George since then but never have the time to just stop by and say hi. Sad day. On a happier note, my twin sister is going to have baby Judah any day now. Can you believe that? I can't. My twin sister is having a baby boy. She's having contractions 3 minutes apart so it's close! The hospital keeps sending her back home though because the contractions apparently aren't strong enough. I have a friend who told me her sister had contractions for 4 days... straight. I hope Jennifer doesn't have to go a day longer. 

I was looking through my journal tonight and on every page, there's a doodle I drew in Church with one of my roommates, pictures of what I did that day, or something random. I came across a picture my roommate drew me in Church and it makes me laugh every time I see it. 

Yes, those are the qualities a man has to
have in order for me to marry him ;)
It's really small so hopefully you can read it. It's in my wall photos if you want to go see on Facebook. 

I love the Temple. My roommates and I are going to try and go every Tuesday. Good thing about that day is that it's such a spiritual day-- institute for an hour then the Temple. Oh what a glorious day. 

Mission papers are one step away. The Dr's office is sending my medical papers to my bishop which might take a few days and then I'll make an appointment with him and we'll send them off. I will possibly go at the end of February to the Temple. Eek. I'm so excited. 

Well, I took some nyquil to get rid of this awful cold of mine. I am tired. I will try and keep my mind open to blogging ideas throughout the day so I can blog more. 

Mucho Amor.

Fun with friends

I have a lot of pictures on my camera but I haven't had the time... eh who am I kidding? I'm too lazy to add them. Plus, they're not going on Facebook. Embarrassment. So if you have been in any activity involving me and my camera, let me know and I will e-mail them to you.

How was everyone's New Year's Eve night and first day of the year? Mine was pretty great if I do say so myself. On New Year's Eve, I hung out with family; had dinner and just hung around. After dinner, Jenn, John, and I went to Aubrie's house where she was having a party. We played a couple rounds of Nertz. Best game by the way. Jennifer and John went back home afterwards. At ten, the crowd started pouring in. That sounds like a lot of people were there huh? People came and went but there was about ten of us. It was still a lot of fun though. We played games, danced, got drunk (joke) off of Sparkling Cider.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1... HAPPY NEW YEAR OF 2012!

Me, Kenz, Megan with our cute tiaras.

New Years Eve!
 We stayed up playing Taboo until about 4. We were exhausted. I did make it to 11 o'clock Church though. Woke up at 9:45ish. How in the world I did that is beyond me. We just went to Sacrament then came home and watched a movie. I took a three hour nap. Oops. After that, we went back to Aubrie's for yet another game night. Great fun.

What did you guys do for the occasions?

The New Year gives an excuse to do better, start new goals. I read a blog and she made a good point; we can start new- make a change- whenever we want. It made me really about how much I actually have used the New Year as an excuse.

However, I already have made resolutions in mind for this upcoming year.

1. Be a better person; a happy, positive person. Easy.
2. Be healthier. I did really well in 2011 except this last semester. I was so close. I can do it.
3. Read the BOM (Book of Mormon) at least 2 times. Done.

Those are pretty reasonable.

If any, what are you resolution/goals?
