I am so excited today.

"Well, gee, Symone. Why are you excited?"

Because in 2 days, my family will be here. In 3 days I will be in New Hampshire. In 8 days, I may see friends, but I am not exactly sure. Then in less than a month I will be done with school for the summer!!

Isn't life grand?

There are many people in the world that I love. Don't get me wrong.

This is about the people who just don't think before speaking or acting. Those who say things they probably don't mean, but it comes out anyways.


This picture basically describes what happened.

Lesson to learn: Think with your HEAD!!!

Happy 100th Blog Entry!

Okay, so this is weird to think that I have talked about and shared 100 things now! That is so cool!


This blog entry will be about one of my favorite bands of ALL time.

30 Seconds to Mars

They, honestly, are so great! I love their music, and their lyrics, and just everything! They are amazing.

I don't exactly remember how I got into them, but the first song I heard by them was "The Kill." From there, I was hooked. I have no idea what draws me to them, to be honest, because when most people meet me, they think I am just into rap, hip hop, pop, classical... Trust me, I have been told all this. But I just LOVE this group.

So I thought I would share that with you. I have been in a "30 Seconds to Mars" mood for the last couple of days...

I WILL own all their CDs one day!!

Alma 38:2-3 (as applied to me)

And now, [Symone], I trust that I shall have great joy in you, because of your steadiness and your faithfulness unto [me]; for as you have commenced in your youth to look to [me], even so I hope that you will continue in keeping [my] commandments; for blessed is he that endureth to the end.
I say unto you, [Symone], that I have had great joy in thee already, because of thy faithfulness and thy diligence, and thy patience and thy long-suffering…

So, these scriptures are about Alma talking to his son, Shiblon.

I changed some things around in them, and made it seem like God was saying them to me. This is how I want God to feel about me, to say to me when I finally see him. I want him to be proud of me, and have joy in me and my life.

I just gotta work on it :)

It's 11:11... I am done wasting my wishes on you.

Yes, I realize that it is not REALLY 11:11, but it just passed, and made me think of this.

Every day, at 11:11 I make the same wish. Obviously, I am not going to tell you what it is, but just know that I do. And every day, that wish does not come true.

So, I am not going to make that wish anymore.

If it's going to change, it is not gonna happen with me. You need to make the change yourself.



So, earlier this semester, my Book of Mormon teacher asked us to forgive someone. Well, I FINALLY did it. And let me tell you, things feel so much better than before. All I did was send a message, and things went from there. If you are holding a grudge, or some ill feelings and they haven't made the effort to talk to you, just send them a message saying "Hi" or something, and things will change. Trust me.

I haven't written in a while. I started writing out my thoughts again, like in a journal type thing. I've missed that. Just saying.

Two weeks from yesterday, I will be in New Hampshire. Yes, you read that correctly. I, Symone M. Stout is traveling to the East Coast. WHY?! Wellllll, let's see. I started off this semester having no one here to hang out with, talk with, anything. I spent most of my time in my room, in front of my computer, not doing anything else. I felt so lonely, and sad. My mom felt bad for me, so she decided to let me go to New Hampshire to see one of my roommates and best friends, Chelsie. So I will be seeing her, and I will also be seeing MIKE!! Yes, Michael Kevin Ivey will also be in New Hampshire at the time that I am. He is one of my best guy friends ever, so I will get a double dose of friends. Also, before that, my family will be stopping in Rexburg on their way to Utah, so I will get to see them!! And after that, I have Jillise stopping by to visit. I am just SO EXCITED for JULY! And then, after that, I will be going home in, like, 18 days after coming back from New Hampshire. I am just so so so so so so so so so so so excited for next month. In case you couldn't tell already :).

Alrighty, I will write later.

Maybe I should be a psychiatrist... or a therapist... LoL I do it now anyways!! :D

You'll Be In My Heart

This song kinda fits how I feel about some wonderful people that have been in my life, either from this year or for many years before.

I am a protective person. I love to make sure that everyone I know is feeling good, no matter what. It hurts me to see my friends suffer through the trials that they have to go through while they live here on this Earth. So, I take them by the hand, and try to help them through it.

This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

Yes, I do know that this is kind of like a lullaby being sung to a little child, but some of the lyrics fit, no matter what age or where you may be, You Will Always Be In My Heart. <3

Two Things That Make My Day, No Matter What Kind Of Day I Have,

You Found Me

This song is one of the greatest songs I have ever heard. It speaks to me, and sometimes I feel this way as well. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I found God
On the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west was all but won
All alone
Smoking his last cigarette
I said, “Where you been?”
He said, “Ask anything.”

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
It never rang
And all I needed was a call
It never came
To the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure
You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

In the end, everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I'm not, who I want to be
No way to know, how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure
You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

Early morning
The city breaks
I’ve been calling
For years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never sent me no letters
You got some kind of nerve
Taking all that I want

Lost and insecure
You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor
Where were you, where were you?

Lost and insecure
You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

Why'd you have to wait,
to find me, to find me?

Lonely... I am so lonely...

There are many times that, while here on Earth, we feel alone. We feel like the trials we are facing are too much, and there is no way that we can get through it. "... I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." Not only does the Lord have a way for us to get through those trials that are placed in our lives, but he will also never leave us alone.

"We will never be left alone or unaided, even if sometimes we may feel that we are." There are many times where I have felt alone, even in a crowd of people that I knew extremely well. I didn't know who to go to, or what to do. I felt so utterly and completely alone that I just didn't want to do the things I loved, or be with those that cared about me. But I know now that I am never alone. "... because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so." We don't HAVE to be alone. And we never are. The Lord not only went through the atonement alone so that we don't have to, but "his solitary journey brought great company for our little version of the path... [Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost], angels in heaven, family members... prophets and apostles, teachers, leaders, friends. All of these... have been given as companions for our mortal journey." Our Father in Heaven has made sure that we are looked after, that we are never alone. But, we may still feel that way.

When we still feel utterly alone, even with the abundant number of people at our side, we must turn our trust and faith to Christ. "He understands your suffering because he has experienced it himself." If there is ONE person who can even remotely understand how you feel, it is Jesus Christ. He knows every pain, every sickness, every trial, every struggle that we have gone through, do go through, and will go through. Not only does he WANT to help us, but he is the only one who will truly know HOW to help us.

We need to put our faith in the Lord. We need to show him that we know he has a plan for us that is even greater than anything we can imagine, and we need to know that the plan is for our benefit, not our detriment. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." When we show the Lord that we are ready for his help, and that we are placing our whole selves in his hands, because there is nothing else we can do without his help, he will show us the way to go.

I don't know what else to say, except that I know it's all true, with every fiber of my being. And you just need to know that as well.


Words that I just can't stand.

Alright, so no one probably reads this anyways, but I love writing my blog, so here I go.

There are certain words that I don't like guys using to describe how I look. Case in point, sexy and hot. I really don't get why you would use that after knowing someone for a while. Sure, when you are first meeting someone, or you get a first look, the words you might use would be those two.

But, after a while, those words lose their appeal. I would rather like to hear beautiful, cute, sweet, etc. I think those words do a better job, but that's just me.

Love of Rain

Rain is a comfort to me. Every time I have a bad day, I just wish it would rain. The sounds of the rain hitting the pavement, dripping from the roofs off buildings. The feeling as the rain hits my body, as I walk from class back to my apartment. The way the Earth smells after a good rain storm.

Water is comforting to me. Growing up, I didn't like to swim. Now I do. I love showers, walking in rain, swimming. It just helps me relax, and gain a better perspective.

I thank the Lord each time it rains, because He makes it rain at the exact times that I need it.

My heart is breaking, my body's aching and I can't see the end in sight.

For some reason, I am uber stressed right now. I don't want to be but I am. Also, I got a 102% on my midterm for Brother Lewis' class. yay... Also, idk what else. I just wanted to write something real quick.
