How lovely. =)

One of my favorite bloggers named Natasha gave me this award. (Followed by Juhee, of course. Thank you)


I have to share seven things about myself and award 15 new bloggers this award.
First things first...
I remember finding Natasha's blog, among many others I found at the same time. I discovered her in a group on facebook. I won't go into details. =) However, she wrote a post that I seriously fell in love with a few weeks ago. It is right here if you want to take a look. I think it is just absolutely darling, and she took the words right out of my mouth.
Natasha has a missionary who is coming home sooo very soon. I wish them the very best. =)

Okay. Seven things about myself.

I have the best friends in the whole world. We are all finally reunited once again for the entire summer. It is strange how although we hardly even talked while we were apart for months at a time, as soon as we were all back together, it was like nothing had changed between us for the most part. =)

I do not like getting picked on. I pick up on subtle hints. I can see right through a person when they are insulting me underneath of their words. Don't try it. If you have been doing it.. please stop it. Also, don't do it with my friends. I will get very defensive and will most definitely speak up about it. I don't mean to be rude, but it just happens. If you do, I will probably stop talking to you altogether because I don't like being around people who make me or my friends feel crappy about ourselves.

I sometimes rant (as you can see above) but I feel bad if my blog is negative all the time. I don't like to complain, but sometimes I just need to say things. I feel like my blog is my space. I get to write what I want.. however, I try to be more positive on it rather than negative.

I am a different person than I was even a few months ago. I'm not saying I've grown up or I have become this amazing person, because I haven't. I am just different. I care about different things and I have different ideas for life. I like to think that perhaps I have matured or something, but I'm not sure if that's it. I think I am just more sure of myself and I care less what other people think. I feel like I know myself a lot better. If you had an opinion of me, whether it be a good one or a bad one, in the first 19 years of my life, perhaps erase it and get to know me again. I think you will find I am not what I once was in many aspects.

I think puppies in purses are so cute. In March when I was at Jordan's bachelorette party, her friend's mother had a tiny little terrier inside of a bag. I fell in love. When I was flying home from Florida there was a couple that was travelling with their terrier. She just lived inside a little bag as well. So adorable.

One of the reasons I love blogging so much is because a blog is so personal to an individual. I feel like you actually get to know someone. You get to go behind the scenes and read their daily thoughts. One of my hugest pet peeves is when someone tells another person that their blog should be a certain way, or tells them what and what not to do. It is YOUR blog people. Please, make it your own. Don't listen to others. You just do what you want. It is better that way! =)

I love people. I love meeting people. I love finding out their quirks and sharing secrets. I love finding common interests and realizing that there are people all over the world that are just like me. I love meeting people for the first time and knowing that it is a completely fresh start. 

Okay lovelies. I am awarding the following!


Happy blogging!
Oh.. and checkout THIS giveaway! Awesome right? I have started entering these. Maybe I will win someday.

Conspiracy?

I pick the worst lines. I'm not even kidding. 
I picked the line behind the man who tried to check into his flight with an ID that didn't match his passport.
I picked the line with the family that had four kids and a very defiant ten year old girl who pouted and wouldn't move her feet or her luggage out of the way.
I picked the line with the people who couldn't figure out the self check-in kiosk.
I picked the line with the security guard who decided to visit with every single person and comment on their passport pictures. And make the word "tram" that he had to write on everyone's boarding passes in freaking calligraphy.
I picked the line that joined with the first class line making mine go twice as slow.. and of course my line the inferior. 
I picked the line with the security computer that broke down for ten minutes.
I finally decided to leave that line.. and right after I did.. it got fixed. Of course right?
Oh. I also picked the line with the man who decided to conduct a random search on me and run a random security test on my laptop. Sheesh. Could he not see my nineteen year old hairs turning grey as we spoke? Sure, Sir. I'll just sit here as you conduct these random searches as my plane departs. No problemo.

On top of that, I got jerk line guard who rolled his eyes when he found out I was going to be late for my flight.
NOT MY FAULT WHEN YOUR AIRPORT LINES SUCK.

Luckily, some people are humane. Kind even. Sir Mr. American Airline Pilot let me cut ahead of him.
BFG Grandpa told me to sneak underneath the ropes to cut in front of 4 weaves back and forth of security line. Of course.. this ended up being the broken computer line.. so everyone caught up with me anyway.
Happy business lady told me the best place to stand in the tram to my terminal so I could get off quickest. She also told me to take a sharp left, followed by another left.. and to SPRINT.
Did you know you have until exactly four minutes before departure to make it onto your plane?
I made it with six minutes. Two minutes to spare. No big deal.

I was not at all surprised when my luggage did not appear at the baggage claim. No big deal. It just had the keys to my house in it.
And of course... I happened to get in line behind a very very angry couple whom also had lost luggage. Get this though.. they hadn't searched everywhere in the baggage claim area yet.. The oversized luggage.. the secret corners with stashes of bags. No big deal. Angry man just held his place in the front of the line while his angry wife walked around for five minutes searching for their bags. I just patiently waited behind him while he stood there looking like an idiot taking up the first place in line.
Of course, the computer system went down right while I made by delayed baggage claim. They couldn't even file my report and give me a reference number.
Of course, Continental ran out of their own forms, so I had to use one from United that the lady didn't know how to use.
This is all true.
Airports hated me today.

blogfail.

Okay. I have been an epic blogging failure this week. I have only blogged once, and I have some serious reading to do. I am so behind in the blogging world. Its sad. I seriously have just been so tired and busy! I will quickly list some of the amazing things I have already done here in Florida.. which is pretty much everything I have wanted to since how I only have one more day here? =(

Here is my Travelblog.

It will probably be boring, just warning you.

Magic Kingdom the first night. We already hit our favorite attractions such as Pirates and Splash Mountain... and of course the fireworks. There is a new show now AFTER the fireworks. Making memories or.. let the memories begin.. or something. Incredible. Disney is magical. I seriously get tingles so easily here.
We went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.. hitting up The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Yes, for anyone out there who doesn't already know this exists.. ITS FOR REAL!! It opened up last June. Honestly it was incredible. There is Zonko's Joke shop and Hogsmeade and chocolate frogs and Ollivander's Wand Shop and Honeydukes and butterbeer  and the Portrait of the Fat Lady inside the Hogwarts Castle.. (Yes.. you can actually tour inside..) but back to the butterbeer... it actually tastes exactly how you think it is going to taste. I feel like I have officially been to Hogwarts and back this week.
We went to the Premium Outlet Mall. This was kind of a disaster day in the end because we actually didn't have a meeting spot and Chad ended up waiting for us on a bench for the same hour that Sher and I ended up waiting for Chad on a bench. Bleh. But.. there was a Victoria's Secret outlet. There was hardly any underwear and swimsuits and stuff, but there was clothes galore. I seriously got so much for so cheap. I know this just sounds so boring but it has honestly been one of my highlights this week.
We went to Hollywood Studios and watched Fantasmic which is 10984203948203948203x better than we expected.
We went to Animal Kingdom and the Epcot Center and hit up all of our favorite attractions there of course. We have eaten Turkey Legs and popcorn and pretzyls and jelly bellys until our stomachs ache, but it has been the best, ever.
We have gone to the Siesta Keys and rode the waves and I even fell asleep in the sand for a glorious hour. I am in love with the ocean, all over again.
We are spending out last day at Blizzard Beach, which I am just thrilled for. We haven't really been into the Waterpark thing our other times here. I went to Aquatica a few years ago, but I have heard such amazing things about Blizzard Beach. There are chairlifts up to the waterslides people. Hallelujah. My aching calves and blistered feet are thrilled.
Naturally, we will be spending out last night at the Magic Kingdom, because that truly is where dreams come true. =)

And.. my internet connection is horrendous so I cannot even upload some cool pictures for you to look at. Please forgive me!

Passport and Lays

First things first.
I'm pleased to say that:
 Orlando greeted me with the nicest weather I've ever experienced on my trips here. 
90+ degrees is feeling fabulous.
The airport has officially completed the renovations on the ceiling
The airport smells the same.. a hint of mildew. 
The grass is still thick. Like quack grass kinda.. only not.

Okay world. Mishap of the trip #1.
As I left my little home for the 2 hour drive to Calgary so I could sleep at my aunt's house and catch my plane the next morning, I thought to myself, "I hope I didn't forget anything.." I looked at my dad and then came to the conclusion that all I needed was a passport and my wallet and I could buy anything else that was necessary. He laughed and agreed.

The next morning I woke up early early early and was just making sure I knew where everything was so I could get through the airport check-in and security as quick as possible, and as my hand reached around the bottom of my backpack, I knew something was missing. I suddenly felt my entire body fit into my esophagus. Thats how big the lump in my throat was. My wallet was gone. I closed my eyes and remembered taking it out of my backpack at 7 eleven on my car ride to Calgary. I definitely had no recollection of putting it back into my backpack. I quickly searched my suitcase, but it was no use. I knew. I text my dad who was sleeping, I'm fairly certain, and said..
"Dad.. does my wallet happen to be in the jeep :( "
It was. 
About a million thoughts passed through my head.
Some from.. who needs money anyway...
all the way to.. I'm stuck in Calgary when Sher and Chad are at the Magic Kingdom and I'm never going to make it there..
Oh wait. 
Thank goodness I had my passport.
The taxi was already outside, and ever so generously, my uncle paid my cab fare. I didn't even have a quarter. 
I get really nauseous in airports and on airplanes... especially early in the morning, so there was no way I could eat breakfast. Not to mention I didn't have time. Bleh. 
But during my two hour layover in Houston by 2 in the afternoon..., I was hungry. 
Everyone was eating. And to top it off, the lady sitting across from me decided she wasn't hungry and threw away her meal. 
So wasteful. I remembered that at that stupid 7 eleven that cost me my wallet for the trip, I bought a bag of Lays Salt and Vinegar chips and only ate half the bag. 
I opened my backpack and found a half a bag of smooshed S&V chips calling my name.
So good.

I eventually arrived in Orlando where my sister and brother in law picked me up at the airport holding two fibre bars and a mountain dew. They are the greatest.

Apparently you can email money. I emailed my trip savings into their account this morning and took out the cash. No problemo.

The first thing I learned this trip, is the only thing you need to travel is your passport.
And a half a bag of Lays S&V chips.

bad things happen to good people.

One of the worst feelings in the world, is the knowledge that family, friends, or loved ones are hurting.. and not being able to do one little thing about it..

ask for source.

I love you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you..

twenty twenty twenty twenty :)

Happiest of birthdays to my best friend. :) He is twenty today! 

Twenty things that have changed since Cody has been gone

1. My hair is longer by about three inches. I rarely do anything with it anymore either
2. His hair is shorter. Apparently the shortest it's ever been
3. I quit my second job :)
4. He speaks Spanish now
5. I've been accepted to the Dental Hygiene program at TSTC
6. He has become a lousy speller without me. His "ei" and "ie" is worse than ever
7. My dashboard is dusty
8. He is really suntanned.. already.
9. Babb, MT is my #1 destination of travel. I am so grateful for that little po-dunk town. Saves me money and time.
10. I don't spend as much money on food and gas. My money is now spent on random things like stamps and toys and cool pens and envelopes.
11. I rarely use my cell phone. Sometimes I just leave it at home even.
12. His facebook page is boring to stalk now.
13. My handwriting has gotten worse rather than better. It's embarrassing.
14. I don't look for new music as much.
15. I haven't watched a MLB game yet, and I don't even know what the heck is going on in the NHL right now.
16. My feelings for him. I love him more and more every day. 
17. I spent way more time with my parents
18. I never use my camera
19. Both of us. We have both changed... just like we thought. It is obvious we are two different people than we were sixty seven days ago. But who's counting. :) 
20. I am not as quiet with how I feel about him. I'll tell the whole world if they want to know. Think what you want. :)

10 things that haven't changed since Cody has been gone

1. His sense of humour. He still says the silliest things that just crack me up
2. He still is my best friend. I haven't found a replacement yet. I'm not looking exactly, but I'm not.. not looking either, if that makes sense
3. I still talk to Carson. H was pretty sure we would lose touch after Cody left because he thought I'd be too cool for him. I believed it to be the other way around, but Cars and I are as tight as ever. I love that guy
4. His handwriting hasn't changed. It is still freakishly perfect
5. I don't miss him any more or any less than I did when he first left
6. I still shop too much
7. My room is still a mess. I've cleaned it a lot, but it still gets messy. :( 
8. My favorite playlist on my iPod. Jane and Cody. It is the best one on there by far.
9. I still hate exercising... but I do it anyway so I guess that has changed?
10. I am still nineteen and am still not ready to get married

5 things I miss about Cody
1. His freckles. Especially the one right under his right eye
2. How he would always drive, even if we were in my car. I just don't like driving very much
3. Having someone to talk to about every little thing and have them genuinely care about each and every happening of my day. I think my mom is going to go crazy pretty soon. I talk her ear off on a regular basis now.
4. His sarcastic laugh. haha I just did it. It made me laugh.
5. Hugs.

1 thing I have learned
1. I really took advantage of the time I had with him. I have learned not to take time for granted.

¡Feliz cumpleaƱos! ¡Te quiero! :)

life is freaking awesome.

HONESTLY. I can't even express it. I don't even know where to start. Life is perfect. 

I love my family so much. I have the best parents in the world. 
I am going to share a funny story about my daddy.
For those of you who know my dad well, you might understand how great this was because you can probably picture the whole scenario.

So the power went out yesterday at 10:30pm while I was at work. I got home around 11:00 to a completely dark house.. except for a bright light in my kitchen. Low and behold, my father was wearing one of these contraptions on his head.


Please just picture it. He was happy as a clam, reading a book, with a headlight across his shiny bald forehead.
I love him so very much. I laughed for a very long time. He then said decided to let me use it so I could get ready for bed. What a kind soul. 

My mom is the best. She lets me cuddle with her even though I am 19. She knows me inside and out. She is the best ever. She is happy when I am happy.
There is a lot of happiness in my house right now. 
My parents love me so much. :)

I love my friends. 
Today, I went to the temple for the first time in way way way way too long. I went with the institute, which was fabulous, because I got to be there with my closest friends.
Plus, one of my closest friends Ryan did the confirmations, and another friend Taylor did the baptizing. 
It is so great to see these boys I have grown up with being able to perform temple ordinances. I love life. I love my friends. I love the gospel. I love the temple.

Cody is the best. He is doing well incase anyone is wondering. He loves Puerto Rico. I actually have a friend who knows his companion. She even kissed him before. What are the chances right!

To top it off, I get to go to a fireside tomorrow night to hear Elder Richard G. Scott speak to the YSA. Ummmm.. YAY! 
I just loved his talk at General Conference. I cannot WAIT until tomorrow night.

4.12.2011

5416.64 km. 3378.76 miles.

Today, it has been exactly nine weeks since Cody flew to Salt Lake City.
Cody is no longer in the MTC. He is officially in Puerto Rico! 
It is actually surprising how fast 9 weeks has gone. 
After three weeks in Provo, and then six weeks in the Dominican Republic, a whole lot of Spanish and a whole bunch of letters and parcels, he made it. :)



How long do yo think mail is going to take? 
...
Fortunately, Puerto Rico is part of the United States Postal System, so I don't have to worry about it taking too long. And since I am lucky enough to have a post office box in the US, I don't even have to worry about international mail rates. :)
 Still though. Thats kinda far away.
There is exactly 3378.759 miles between where I live, and his mission home.

It honestly makes no difference how many miles away he is. It feels the same as it did when he was in Provo.
I'm happy for him!

I believe this is necessary.


I got this idea from this blog post. I think it is truly necessary, and I am so happy I am able to take this pledge.
=) 
Feel free to take the pledge as well..

 AS A KIND-HEARTED BLOGGER I PLEDGE TO:


  • create, inspire, and admire rather than compete with fellow bloggers
  • be understanding of each other-- in the blogging community, as well as in the world

  • speak my opinion freely, while still being mindful of other's feelings-- be tactful.
  • make an effort--no matter how big or small the gesture, to spread kindness or joy to others
  • acknowledge that I will make mistakes, (I am only human) but remember to learn from them
  • know that at times I will post about the negative stuff in life, and maybe even some complaining (I am only human) but I will always follow up with something happy/positive too.
  • believe that this world is a good place, filled with good people.

check check check.


Okay well let me start off with a summary of how my March went. I'd say I was fairly successful. Not perfect though. There is always next month!

- My room is a mess. I cleaned it really good twice, but it didn't last. I know, I'm terrible.
- I am still waiting to hear back from a few places for a summer job... but I officially have a plan C now if both of them don't work out.
- No quilt. Oh well.
- I went shopping. Don't tell my parents.. I only bought things that were on sale though. :)
- So I didn't save 99% of my earnings. More like 80%... which is a lot better than before. I feel like I've made progress.
- I didn't wash my mom's car because it is still so muddy outside. I did clean out the inside of it though.
- I donated to a children's charity. Not much, but hey. I still did it with the ideas of my March goals in mind. 
- I made breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day since Wednesday for three girls I'm babysitting. Not to mention I taught the youngest one how to ride a two-wheeler? Bonus points, thanks.
- my treadmill is officially part of my exercise routine. Unfortunately the TV in front of it only gets the business channel. You'd think I would be very educated in the stock market these days, but I'm really just not. I think I tune out the TV.
- I don't exercise how I originally planned, but I have an official exercise routine. I can tell its making a difference. My butt has been sore for two weeks. Progresssss! :)
- J Biebs. Check. Also brought along three more friends to infect them with the fever.
- so the not sleeping in one was a failure. I won't go into details.
- choreography: done.
- institute every week. yes yes yes and yes.
I'd say it was a successful month. 

Inspired by conference this past weekend, I am officially making a To Be list instead of a To Do list for this month.

1. Be non-judemental. This is something I have been working on for a while. I get very upset when I feel I am being judged, so I know I need to stop judging others.
2. Be efficient. I need to stop being lazy on some days and get out of bed at a normal time and use my time wisely. If I spent as much time serving others as I do on facebook, the world would be a happy place. Also. if I spent as much time exercising as I did on my blog?.. ya. I won't even go there. It's time to use my time better.
3. Be clean.  I am going to make a conscious effort to only handle each thing once, meaning I need to put things away instead of just dropping them on the floor. Keep my room clean, help with dishes, put my make up away.. the easy stuff that clutters my space. I'm sick of it!
4. Be friendly. I could probably say thank you a million more times a day. I could probably have a smile on my face more often. 

I'm not sure how I will keep track of these, but I am definitely putting out a conscious effort to be a better person this month.. specifically in these ways. Hopefully there will be specific situations that I can write about on my blog. :) Wish me luck.



right on schedule.

Ohhh thanks for not letting me down postal service.

Public Event.

So, I'm just wondering.
Is it just me,
or does anyone else in the world just like, really miss Cody today?
No?
Hmm.. weird.

Well, if you change your mind, I'm having a pity party for the next six hundred and seventy five days.
Let me know if you are interested in attending.

Jus kidding.
 No pity party. 
It's all good. 
But I do miss him. :)

4.05.2011

Baby, it's fact.

Unoriginality. Makes me cringe.
I know there are so many ideas in the world, but I just know that it isn't just a coincidence.. EVERY time.....
Is it to difficult to admit that you weren't the one who came up with the idea?
"Oh hey! So and so did this, and I think I'm going to do that as well! It seems like something I would really like..".. instead of..
"I have the best idea ever!... I'm going to this. Aren't I so brilliant for coming up with that?"
Seriously.
I know I should just get over it, but it is just too common to just not care. If it happened oh maybe once or twice a week instead of once or twice a day, maybe I'd handle things better.
I suppose getting easily frustrated is one of my weaknesses.
I'm working on it, honest.
BUT SERIOUSLY PEOPLE. Quit taking credit for things that aren't your idea.
It all comes down to being someone you aren't.
Don't make decisions in life based on what other people choose.
Especially the big decisions!
I'm not saying you have to make sure no one has ever done anything before you did it.
That's impossible. Everyone is the person they are based on the influences of everyone else they have interacted with in their lives.

But for the love. Don't look at someone and think to yourself, "Hm. I like their life. I'm going to copy it."
Seriously. Because if you do, you are going to be very unhappy someday.
I'm not saying be different than everyone else.

Just do what YOU want. Be friends with the people YOU choose to be friends with. Go to school where YOU want to go to school. Be what YOU want to be. Love whomever YOU love. Successful people are only successful because they follow their OWN heart and their OWN dreams, not YOURS.

ask for source.

good good good.

I have so many thoughts and emotions today. I am in such the best mood. I don't think anything could get me down.

General Conference. I love. I always have, but it was different this year. I don't know if it is because I have finally grown up enough to have the desire to listen to every word, but for some reason I just cannot get enough. Oh, and PS. Has the Tabernacle Choir always been that impressive? Oh my word. I have never felt the spirit so strong while listening to them as I did this morning during The Spirit of God.

I removed my followers from my profile. I am sorry, but it had to be done. I was getting too caught up in the numbers and it was taking away from my joy of blogging. I blog because it makes me happy. Yes, I love followers and knowing that people like to read what I say, but it isn't my purpose for blogging. If you want to follow my blog you will have to use the follow button at the top of the page instead of the follow box. Perhaps I will add my box of followers again someday. Perhaps I will have lost some, or gained some, but it really doesn't matter to me. I really just blog for the sake of enjoying blogging, and I need to keep it that way.

Cody is going to come home someday. It may be a long time from now, but eventually it will happen. I miss my best friend, but not the kind of missing him as in I wish he were here. I just miss him. I am excited to be able to see him again someday.

I have made some of the best friendships the past couple weeks and months. People I have known for so long but have never been close with. Being here has let me become close with people I never thought I would be close with. I am going to miss Ryan and Jared when they leave. I have grown so close to these boys. I'm not there are many other people in the world I could talk to like I can talk to these boys. I am so blessed to have such great men as friends.

In April 2013, I will have a career. I hope 2012 is not the end of the world.

I love my parents. Being home this year has been hard on me, but it has strengthened me. If I would have known in high school that I would be spending my first graduated year at home with my parents, I would NOT have been okay with it. Guess what. It has been the best year of my life so far. My parents are becoming my best friends. I have to have a visit with them every day. Our relationship has been strengthened so much.

I am so blessed. Everything is falling into place. I have made decisions I never thought I would make. I am going places I ever only dreamed to be going. Life is so exciting at this time in my life. Yes, it is hard, every single day, but it is going to be so worth it.

Blogging is the newest way to pass notes.

This is a combination of things I am too scared to say, things I shouldn't say, and things I want to say but haven't yet. I am writing them on here instead.  


Dear You:
Could you please stop being so competitive with me all the time? It's really getting frustrating and I really can see right through you, just so ya know..
Can't you just be happy for me instead of trying to beat me?
I'm not sure what you want me to do. I don't exactly have control over any of this.

Dear You:
Really? Why do you insist on holding onto all of the boys from your past? Can't you just be happy with your current love affair and let go of all the rest? Do they ALL know just how close of tabs you still keep on ALL of them?

Dear You:
Please. For the love. Stop squealing. It pierces my ear drums.

Dear You:
I promise.. :)

Dear You:
I'm really glad I finally realized just how awful you were to me. I know this is most definitely a thing of the past, but I'd like to write this anyway. I don't know why I put up with you for so long, but NO ONE tells me that I don't fit in their "weight" category. Jerk. You got exactly what you deserved. Which is nothing.

Dear You:
Thanks for being such a good chatter and listening to me rant for .1 minute which is translated to three hours. You are a great cyber friend :)

Dear You:
I don't have anything against you at all. Why do you insist on thinking that there is conflict between us? Where the heck did you get that idea?

Dear You:
She doesn't like you I'm afraid.. Please stop falling for girls who like to lead you on. 

Dear You:
Try hitting on me one more time and I'll unfriend you. 

Dear You:
I would really appreciate it if you would stop assuming you have me all figured out. Just to get the record straight, we have never talked, never hung out, and never known each other. I am not sure why this gives you the right to judge me or some of the things I've done

Dear You and You:
I like our post midnight chats. We should do that more often.

Love, Me.

Slow down.
Don't be offended or flattered by these please. There is less than a one in six billion chance that any of these are about you.
=)

OKAY. I feel better. Sorry if some of those were rude! I'm not normally like this.. next post will be a happy one. Promise.

life happened!

I used to check my blogfeed numerous times a day in hopes to see that someone had written a new post. Now, I have to check it numerous times a day to be sure I don't miss any. I have discovered so many fabulous blogs lately that keeping up with them all is starting to stress me out. I need one extra hour each day dedicated to blog stalking. 


Dear Blog friends. I love your comments. I love following you.
 Sorry my posts have been slightly shallow lately. I have been busy this week. Next week I will spend an excessive amount of hours in bed plotting posts and catching up on everyone.
Promise.


OH and in case anyone is concerned for my well being and thought I was going to die from impatience as mentioned in this post.. and this post..

Life happened!
I got accepted into my program, and will be moving to Texas in August.
My passport came so I will be going to Florida in 20 days.
I finally got to check the mail in Montana.
Oh what a happy time I had sitting in the parking lot of that post office..
Elder Cody Clay Foggin is still my best friend. He is the best letter-writer on the face of the planet.
Be jealous.
I found out that I made it past the first round of the process of getting the summer job I want. They are inviting me back for round two. Excellent.
This all happened in 24 hours!
I'm feeling good.
Part II of job application process is a test tomorrow morning at 11 though, so I best get to it.

The last test I took was a quiz.. in American Heritage during my short stay at BYU.. 
Let's just hope I do a little better on this one...
