Wanna see how crazy we are??

I love my roomies <3

"Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils ..." - Louis Hector Berlioz

"You make your own timing. You only miss the moment if you don't seize it. Because you're too afraid of what might happen if you do."

SOOO I am writing a blog about, you got it, seizing the moment and never letting time pass by.

Alright, I have had my fair share of letting time pass without changing the situation I was in. NOT A GOOD CHOICE! You need to take the opportunities presented to you, because you never know if they will help you or not. Also, if you are in a situation that you don't particularly like, then GET OUT OF IT!!! You need to have the strength to change those things that you can. I didn't get that strength until recently, and boy did I wish I would have gotten it sooner.

Another thing, pray to the Lord to know if the path you are on is right, to know if what you are doing is in accordance with His plan for you. I started doing that recently, and I have felt like the path I am finally on is the right one. I just hope to continue to follow the plan that He set up for me in heaven, before I was born.

Alright, I think I am gonna head out. LOVES! <3

Rexburg, ID

Snow snow snow! It is EVERYWHERE! And it is cold-ish. Well, at the moment that I am writing this, it is 21 degrees, which is warm... kinda... LoL. It has been between -20 and 14 degrees for the last couple days, so it is starting to warm up, but it probably won't stay that way.

Since coming back out to school a lot of different things have happened. Things in both my classes and my life.

Well, for starters, I am passing my classes. I got a B or a B- on my first test in Personal Health and Wellness, and I have an A in College Algebra. To be honest, I love my math class. Brother Cameron takes the time to explain everything, and makes sure that we understand what we are doing. I don't like Brother Lamph's (pronounced lamp) teaching style. He never gives out homework, the only thing he asks is that we read the chapter, join in the discussion in class, and do the Butter Burner, which is work out for 3 days, 30 minutes a day, 180 minutes a week at the minimum. I just never know what is going to be on the tests, and it stresses me out!!! But we will see where things go. I got a rough draft of a schedule for next semester. I am really excited about it. I am trying to get three-day-weekends again. That would be legit.

Now onto the things in my life. I like having guy friends. I think that they bring a lot less drama in my life, and I know that they are willing to protect me and help me out if I need it, without having to know the whole entire story. WELLLLLLLLLL having guy friends can also be a bad thing. I am a flirt... A big one, which isn't always the best thing. I have been working on it, but not hard enough, I suppose. Anyways, I have had 7 guys friends tell me that they are interested in me, and when they hear that I am kinda dating someone else, they get irritated and stop talking to me, like it is the end of the world that they can't be with me. WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?! I have no idea what to do. The thing is, I am really really happy. Like, I haven't been this happy in... a long time. I am not gonna give up my happiness just because someone else is pissed at me. I have done that too many times for my own good.

ANYWHO, topic change. I love school. Brigham Young University-Idaho is an amazing school. The spirit is felt so strong here, and I know that Heavenly Father continually finds ways to bless my while I am here, whether it be with the teachers I have, or the roommates I get to live with, or the blessing of being surrounded by people who all believe in the same things I do. It is wonderful.

As was said, I love my roommates. We just have so much fun together, whether it is at 3 in the morning or at 2 in the afternoon. We are always laughing with one another, and we really care about eachother. I love living with these girls, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
To Captain Awesome and Lieutenant Legit: 49 More Days!!!
To My Family: 28 More Days!!!
Love you all!! <3

Love is a many splendored thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love!

So, earlier today I talked to a friend who made me think. No matter how much I want to be loved, I won't allow anyone in or allow them to love me. I don't feel good enough to be loved, because of the things that have happened to me in my past. Not the best, huh?

I haven't written a BLOG blog in a while, so here I go.

So, we have been talking a lot, me and Chels, about a lot of different things. Yesterday, it was really funny, we got into a "yelling spat." We were yelling at each other, but in a joking matter. One thing was said that made me laugh soooo hard. We were "yelling" and then all of a sudden, Chels goes, "Are those stamps?" I look down, laugh a little, and say "They are only stamps if they will make you not bitter!! If not, then they are just pretty stickers." LoL it made me laugh so hard. I love my roommates! They are amazing, and I wouldn't have it any other way. We always laugh and we always have a good time with one another, and I love it.

My classes are going well still. I recently got my book for Personal Health and Wellness, so I still need to read 3 chapters by tomorrow... I can do it... Also, College Algebra is also going well. Turning in my first math assignment in 7 months today... Dang, has it really been that long?! YIKES!!

Lots of different things have happened in my life since the last time I actually wrote on here. Today, Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of these United States. I am excited to see what he will do for this nation. It was really cool to watch the inaguration. I didn't get to watch it as it was happening, but I watched it online later on. I am so glad that I got the chance to vote in this election. It raises my level of respect for my country.

Now, this will come to an end. I will write another later on.

LOVE! <3

"Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself, but if your love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook, that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love, and to bleed willingly and joyfully. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving; to rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy; to return home at eventide with gratitude, and then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips."
Gibran Kahlil Gibran
"Love me without fear; Trust me without questioning; Need me without demanding; Want me without restrictions; Accept me without change; Desire me without inhibitions; For a love so free.... will never fly away."

"You make your own timing. You only miss the moment if you don't seize it. Because you're too afraid of what might happen if you do."

"Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead."
"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."
Shay Wilhelm
"The worst thing is holding on to someone who doesn't want to be held on to. Don't fall for someone unless they're willing to catch you. The thing about falling in love is that if you do it right, you'll never hit the ground. Life is too short to be anything but happy. So kiss slowly. Love deeply. Forgive quickly. Take chances & never have regrets. Forget the past but remember what it taught you. Sometimes, you just have to smile, pretend everything's okay, hold back the tears and walk away. If you want to see the rainbow you must go through the rain. If you want TRUE LOVE you must go through the pain. Women were made from a man's rib, not from his head to be superior, not from his feet to be walked on, but from his side to be equal, from under the arm to be protected, and from next to the heart to be loved."

What the crap...

LoL ok, so maybe I over-exaggerated on the title of this blog, but I can't believe how many of my friends/family members are joining different parts of the military. Here we go.

Sean Stout- Air Force Reserves
Dennis Moxon- Army
Andrew Naumann- Air Force Reserves
Michael Oud- Army
Sean Arnold- Coast Guard

I love my nation, and I know that these boys are joining or have joined already to protect this great nation that God created for us, but I still worry. I want them to be safe and protected, and I hope that God will protect them while they do the different things they are asked to do for this nation.

All done :)


Today started off as a horrible day. Here is the story.

I kept waking up during the night because I expected a phone call for some reason, and then I set my alarm for 8:30 so I could see my math teacher at 9. Well, an alarm went off earlier and then shut off and I thought it was mine so I didn't want to wake up. THEN my actual alarm went off, and my phone had fallen between the crack that is my wall and the desk. The phone was half an inch away from my fingers when I stretched out my arm, and I couldn't get it so the alarm kept going off and woke up my roommate. Then I got my phone and checked it and I had a missed phone call!!! So then I was ticked and didn't want to leave, but Chels said I had to, so I tried I-Learn to see if I could get the documents, which I couldn't, and that's why I needed to see my teacher. So I went to see my teacher and found out that I needed Microsoft Word, not Works, which is what I have. So then I came back and slept for an hour and 45 minutes, then went to the library to get the documents for math. In order to print them, I needed to put money on my I-card. I didn't know that, so I found a way to put money on my I-Card and printed them off. Then I came back, and straightened my hair and Chels stepped on the straightener while it was still hot.

BLAH!!! But, I went to class and had the best time. Then a friend texted me saying that I meant the world to them, and that made my day better. BUT that is not the purpose of this post.

I talked to a friend today, and while talking to them I realized something. Once you make a choice to follow something the Lord has taught us to do, Satan tries 10 times harder to make it so you can't accomplish that. HE CANNOT WIN!! We will, and can, prevail against him.

That's all I wanted to say :)

Back in the Burg!

So, I am once again in Rexburg, ID. The weather is COOOOOLD!!!! And snow is everywhere, but it's ok. The worst is yet to come, or so my Math teacher said.

Yes, you read that right. Instead of online calsses, I am in REAL CLASSES!!!!! Yes, I am off-track, so I had to take night classes, but they are already wayyyyyy better than online courses.

Anywho, so yesterday classes started for everyone, including me. So I have one class on Mondays and Wednesdays, and another class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I get Fridays off, and so I have 3-day weekends all semester :).

So, anyways, my Mon/Wed class is Personal Health and Wellness. So I show up to class, waiting for the teacher to arrive. 5 minutes go by... 10... 15... after 15 minutes I just left. The rule is, if the teacher doesn't show after 15 minutes you can leave. So I did. Not a good way to start off the semester.

So today, I went to College Algebra. WOW!!! I am so excited for that class. The teacher seems really cool (yes he actualy showed up), I talked to people, and I am just really excited.

I miss Mike and Brian terribly, though. All day today, Chels and I told stories about them. Pathetic, we know, but they were our other halves. We just want them here, but we know that they need to be where they are...

Hopefully this gets easier...
