“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” - John Jakes
Tuesday was uneventful until after I got back from my classes. I went down to my new friends apartment to visit. They told me about how that morning they had had to fight with a couch and a chair on the couch to get out of their rooms this morning. Apparently Allie had gone in and put the furniture in front of the doors and they wanted to get her back. Well the plan was to go into her apartment, they stole her keys when looking for theirs, at 2 am and scare her. Well the only problem with that was no one woke up at the appointed time. Oh well.
Wednesday was non stop until after 8 for me. I woke up at ten and realized it was clean checks. So I jumped out of bed and started to clean. I told Allyx to get out of bed several times, apparently 5 hours of sleep isn't enough for her on clean check days, and then threatened that she would do white glove all by herself if we failed. So she got out of bed... and into the shower!!! Then she slowly got ready while the rest of us hurried about cleaning. Then she finally pulled out the vacuum and vacuumed.
I ran to class at 11:25 and barely made it there before the prayer. Math was boring as usual.
Then I walked with Nicole until we went to separate buildings. Provident Living was amazing. Probably only because the group that was presenting made us omelets and I hadn't eaten yet that morning. And the fact that class is always pretty good.
Woods was good. I almost finished making the back for my clock so I'm happy, as long as I did the gluing right.
Then I went to the PL meeting for an hour. Then met with the head resident for another fifteen to make sure everything was going good. I almost made it to my apartment when I was assailed with "COME TO WATER POLO!" by Sea Bass, Han, Parkeve, and Andrew. So I ran inside grabbed a bagel and ran.
Water Polo was amazing, I'm not going to lie. I thought I would be horrible but I think the fact that everyone has to swim with inflated tubes, ya know like the ones at 7 peaks, helped a lot in my skill. That and the fact that my mother thinks I'm half fish ha ha.
My team won 9-6. It was pretty sweet. Though you would find it funny how mad people get when you play the game how your supposed to and block them. Then they start to kick you in the stomach, that part is no fun but the rest was. I then came home and kinda finished reading four books in the Odyssey and went to bed at 11. I woke up this morning at 7 after having the freakiest creeper dream in the world. Maybe it was fueled by that creepy guy from behind the trees me and Maria saw coming back from water polo. Anyway, I have been working on my four page paper for english ever since. It was funny because Nicole walked passed and tapped on the window, then Annie and Aileen did the same. Then allie walked passed and I tapped at her. I like having friends.
Well I guess I have to get back to my paper now.
Gotta Blaze!

Maybe...

"The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug." ~ Mark Twain
So Friday I didn't have my woods class so I went home, took the math stupid math test, and went into my room and did english homework. A while later Allyx came into my room and said I had a guest. Ooo a guest. So I went out there and it was Nicole wondering if I had turned in an assignment that we had worked on together the night before, but hadn't quite known how to do. I said no and she said she would turn, did you know tern is a word, it for me. She left and I went back into my room.
A bit later I hear a knock on my door and Kendra walks in! She just wanted to know if I wanted to go to Sit Down For Stand Up with her. I gladly accepted and when she left I realized I had invited the boys over to watch a movie that was playing in the lounge later. I asked Allyx to text/call them and tell them it was off cause she was going out with Ben or Allen or Parker one off the boys she's going out with. She said she would so I lazed around for the next 2 hours and texted Allyx to see if she had told Sea Bass yet. She said no and why didn't I do it. I explained that I didn't have their phone numbers. So she gave me someone's...right after Han arrived.
I awkwardly explained that I had somewhere to go in an hour but if he just wanted to chill for an hour that would be cool. He chose that option so we sat for a while in the apartment. Then Danielle, Kristen, and Patrick left so we had to go outside to talk as the lounge was in use for the movie. Wouldn't you guess it was one of the colder nights that night? Anyway we talked for a bit more and Sea Bass came over from his ultimate frisbee game so we were able to go back into the apartment. Then Kendra came over, the boys left, and we went to SDFSU. Basically it was students doing stand up comedy. Some of them were hilarious and others... well not so much. Then we went to a bond fire. It was my first and it wasn't that great but the fire was huge, I'm not going to lie.
Then we came home, well I came home she went to her FHE brother's house to get help on her homework. It was like 10 something. So I read some more of the Forward in the Odyssey. And then went to bed sometime.
Saturday was really unproductive I stayed in bed and in my pajamas for most of it. I did read more of the forward in the Odyssey. Then I got a call from an Idaho number. I didn't recognize it and neither did Allyx so I didn't answer it. Then it called back ten minutes later. I figured they must be lookin for me so I answered it.
"Hello?"
"Hi, Angela?" ha! they are looking for me....maybe it's the clerk for my ward....
"Yeah?"
"This is Han."wasn't expecting that one...
"Oh, hey!" how did he get my number? My cell phone number?????
"I was just wondering if we were going to watch Dark Angel tonight."
"Oh yeah um..." looks at clock, it is 5pm, "Wanna come over at 7?"
"Yeah sure"
"Sweet. bye"
"Bye"
That was the gist of it anyway.
And yes I was in my pajamas til 530 at night. Anyway I jump in the shower, take one, then got dressed.
I finished watching Lady and the Tramp with my roomies and Patrick. Well I watched it, Kristen and Patrick were asleep on the floor and Danielle was out on the couch. Allyx was who knows where.
Then it finished and they did whatever. I popped in Hunchback cause I had started watching it a week or so before and never finished it. So about the part that Phoebes refuses to set the windmill on fire Han came over. We finished watching it and then popped Dark Angel in. And wouldn't you know Danielle decided to leave. So we grabbed the DVD and took it down to the lounge, but we couldn't find the DVD player so we sat and talked for two hours. It was really nice to just talk. He has the coolest back round too. His house is right on a lake and forest surrounds his house. He gets to go into the forest everyday!! He even had two pet ravens before the annoyed his neighbor. Ah the life of a country boy. *sniff sniff* my dream life.
Ah well I like my life too. Then he went to do homework and I went to do homework, though my computer sucked me in, again.
After a while Allyx came home with Sea Bass, Parker, and Ben in tow. I really can't remember what we didd but I know they made fun of Han for leaving early for homework. Anyway.
Sunday was good. The lessons were amazing and so were the testimonies. God has a way of reminding you he's there. When I got home I felt bummed because in sacrament I had sat alone, my roommates were super late, and Han kinda sat by me after he passed the Sacrament but he sat a seat away. In sunday school I sat alone, don't ask where my roommates went, I have no idea they showed up for relief society though. Then I walked home alone.
So instead of sitting at home sulking I took our lesson to heart and lost myself in service. I made Crystal cookies. It was so hard not to eat some of the mix cause I was fasting.
I went visiting teaching then took the cookies to Crystal. We talked for a while and it was really nice. I like having family up here. And yes, she counts as family to me.
Then I came home and the boys came over for dinner. We had tacos and they helped make it again. Then after Allyx was like "We should make cookies." And Danielle was like "Angela! You should make those cookies again!" they like Lani's recipe for double chocolate chip cookies, so I was like "Got any chocolate chips?" Allyx had some so I made them. Borrowing a cup of brown sugar from Allie. Han barred the way into the kitchen so no one would steal the batter like Allyx had done already.
After they were made I took some to Allie and her apartment as a thank you, then some to my new friends. Allyx started to object but I told her I made them, with mostly my ingredients, and if she really wanted me to I would buy her a new bag of choco chips. Not like she could really complain though. That recipe makes over 3 dozen cookies and I only took 16 cookies. Anyway when I took them down there the girls were really happy. Eileen even gave me a hug. I like their apartment.
When I came back Allyx was in a bind. She was going to go out with Allen but she didn't want the boys to know. So she was wondering how she could slip away with out them noticing. I noticed it was almost 9 so I kicked the boys out on the premiss that we had to go to dorm prayer. And of course I was the only one to go.
On the way back I tried to help my new friends break into their apartment because their FHE brothers had locked them out so they could clean the apartment. The problem? None had shoes/slippers except for kendra and most weren't wearing hoodies or sweaters. For thirty minutes they stood outside! I ran home and got blankets and slippers to help. When we were finally let back in Nicole and I did some math homework together. Then we went over to another FHE brother's house. And we almost stole MC's truck. See he leaves it unlocked and the keys in the truck. So we just got in and locked the doors. Kendra called him and told him a birdy told her that his truck was leaving. Not joking 5 seconds later he was out there fully dressed. It was amazing. Afterwards we had a pretty good laugh.
Then we walked back to our apartments. In the course of talking i learned that Annie is going home for winter semester and the rest of them are still going to be roommates. They were looking for another roommate they knew so they wouldn't get someone crazy. Then they asked if I was staying for winter. They suggested maybe I should room with them. So maybe, just maybe, I found my roommates for next semester.
Monday was uneventful. FHE was kinda boring though I did make it to book four in the Odyssey. To bad I only have two paragraphs for a four page paper due in english.

Pro-Life Day of Silent Solitude

Here is a slide show from the PLDSS. I thought it was kinda cool.

http://www.slide.com/r/CixDvwW-1j-58NpOlWbvipDdOTqreuLI?cy=br

And here's what my arm looked like. I later added one around under my elbow that said Pro-Life. The one on my upper arm said day of silence.



Next year I will hopefully be able to buy the shirt they have as well.

Friggin Amazing

"Writers aren't exactly people...they're a whole lot of people trying to be one person." - F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Funny thing about college, some weeks are as boring as snails and then others are just friggin amazing. This was one o' those friggin amazing weeks.
Monday was FHE, I won't talk about what else happened cause I can't remember ha ha. Well we all met here at my apartment, well most of us did the only boys to show up were dad, Han, and dad's roommate Andrew. Oh and Patrick. We then drove out to the dunes. I was so excited, I've been wanting to go there ever since I got here. I drove with Kya and Maria. It was so much fun. We blared music and had a dance party in the car, safely though.
When we got there we lit a fire. Though in a unprotected spot so the wind kept threatening to blow it out. When that happened we just poured more lighter fluid on it. I don't think a fire was a good idea when most of us are piros. Anyway there was this huge sand dune close and I wanted to climb to the top, so I asked if anyone wanted to come with. Han, Charice, and Tiffany( they are Kya and Maria's roommates) came with. It was amazing because the clouds that were there when we first arrived had mostly blown over to the eastern horizon so the stars were shining. There are so many.
That's actually a fun memory I have with Lani, going out to the sand dunes with her roommates and mom cause someone had an astronomy class and just looking at how many there were.
Anyway I got to talk to Charice and Tiffany which was nice because I hadn't really before. Then everyone was leaving so we had to run down the hill and to the cars.
Tuesday was good, annoying, but good. It was Pro-life Day Of Silent Solitude. I was silent the whole day, except towards the end when my roomie was saying things that I just had to remark on because I forgot I wasn't talking. Anyway it was hecka hard not to talk in my humanities class. There were so many points I want to point out, and help the other people with their questions. But I stayed silent! In english too. Oh and to anyone who is putting duct tape on their skin soon. Avoid hair. Wrist and upper arm are good places but right below the elbow is not! Oh yeah you were supposed to wear a red arm band or red duct tape to show you were involved. Some people wear the duct tape over their mouths but I would have freaked out so i put it on my arm. And for some reason on bare skin.
Anyway around 7 I got really frustrated with Allyx and walked up to the temple. Would you guess it was the coldest night yet? Anyway I walked around there for a bit, came home, took a shower(I got the duct tape off really easy except the below the elbow one that took water), and went to bed... at 8!
I woke up at 2 because Allyx was texting. You think those buttons are quiet but their not. For twenty minutes I laid there trying to go back to sleep but the click click click of the keys kept me up. So I got up and went and scrubbed the kitchen and bathroom floors. See we've failed two clean checks and our third fail we have to do a white glove check. Bekka being nice said if we got 100% she would erase one of our fails. So I got up and cleaned. I organized the mess in the living room into piles of neatness, then I organized my desk. Oh and I talked to Sea Bass most of the time on FB. Ha ha.
Then for an hour I tried to go back to sleep, it didn't work. So I got my computer and watched youtube for an hour or so. Then I finished reading Sir Gawain. Then I called mom around 9 and talked for a while catching her up on the past three days. Then I did some math, or maybe that was before calling mom... I don't remember. Then I mopped the floors again and made my bed. Then I had to run to class cause I was late. Math was boring as usual, I was really hyper for Provident Living(ask Crystal), and woods I was just plain scared to mess up my clock cause we were putting the glued frame through a sander. If you put it in at the wrong angle it would tear up the side. Luckily I didn't mess it up. Wahoo. Then it was to a meeting for SL, only 5 of us showed up... again.
Then I came home and got ready for the ward halloween social. I dressed all in black and had Allyx draw a barcode on the back of my neck so I was an X5. If you don't know what that is it's okay. So I went and it was okay, it wasn't the best but it was fun. Though somehow the apples Wes and Tayler were juggling kept attacking me. I did meet some new people so that's good. Then I came home and crashed because I woke up at 2.
Thursday was the test on Sir Gawain in humanities. It was sweet because it was another take the test and leave. I only had a problem with the questions that were on the visual prompts we had gone over earlier. I knew the big details but the small ones were the one he tested us on. So I missed like 5 points. Then I went home and chilled with my roommates and the girls next door.
I then finished the reading for english and went there. It was a fun class, as always.
Then I went home and worked on a spreadsheet for math. Sadly when I was almost done I messed it up somehow so I just gave up. Luckily I had saved it half way through so I figured that I would start again in the morning. So I was watching movie trailers, I am so mad there is no more clean flicks a movie is coming out that is the third in a trilogy but it's R grrr, when I got a text from Allie asking if I was home and could I help her neighbor with math. I said yes so Nicole came over and we did the spreadsheet together.
She went back home and I printed them off and walked it over to her apartment and got sucked into a night of fun.
First there was a dance party with strange outfits, then we went to the apartment's FHE brother's apartments to tie the doors together. Though they were awake so we couldn't do it. We did help them jump start their truck though. After running it around the parking lot trying to kick start it. It was kinda funny cause there were 6 girls and two guys pushing, well one driving, a truck around the parking lot at like 11:30 at night.
Then we "left." What we really did was go into the laundry room of another building to look out the window to see if they would go back into the apartments, and in the mean time we broke up a make out session in the laundry room. Sadly they did not go back inside so we booked it back to the dorms, barely making it before the security guards came to lock the gates.
Then I stayed up reading the Odyssey, but only the preface thingy that explains the history of dissecting the Odyssey. Which is really boring but interesting at the same time, waiting for Allyx to come home. She hadn't by 2 and I was falling asleep so I went to bed.
I woke up at 6:19 and she was dressed and moving around, so I asked her when she got in. She said 4. But I don't know if that was true or if she had just gotten in. But I really don't care as long as it doesn't happen again.
Well gotta blaze!

Sunday dinner.

"When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen." - Samuel Lover
So as I was sitting on my couch I heard a voice from outside my apartment "one-thirty TWO!" and then there was a knock. I jumped up, flung open the door and gave a huge hug to Nat. I could never forget her voice. We then played for the next 2 hours. We signed, which I have wanted to for the past two months, danced around in the grass, laughed, and caught up. It was most wonderful.
She left when I got to go to a fireside. I went with the apartment across the way because two of my roommates didn't go and one was no where to be found. The boys were over there too. And what they were doing? Getting dinner. They were supposed to come to my apartment and Allyx and I were to make them dinner too. Well forget that!
Anyway the fireside was really good and I wish that the two roommates would have gone too but oh well. Allyx showed up right before it started so it was all good.
Then the boys came over and we made dinner for them.... well they made dinner for themselves. We just provided the boxes of macaroni and cheese. Ben wanted an apron so we gave him one. The only problem was that the apron we had was really, really girly. But it was hilarious when he put it on. And when... well I'll let you see:

and here is a video
Shown: Allyx, Sea Bass, Andrew, Sam, Danielle, Me, and Ben.

Isn't college life grand? ha ha.

"Ink on paper is as beautiful to me as flowers on the mountains; God composes, why shouldn't we?" - Audra Foveo-Alba
Friday night there was to be a surprise birthday party for someone but it was cancelled due to Guitars Unplugged. There went my Friday night plans 15 minutes before it was to begin.
So Allyx called Parkeve and invited the boys over. They came over, two hours later. So we dinked around the apartment for a while then we played frisbee. Then we moved on to walking around campus. While we were we found a cat. Andrew petted it so it followed us around until it ran after someone else. We had decided to go to the Temple and walk the grounds, but the apple orchard distracted us. We ran around in there for a bit, which was amazing because it was dark and I've never done that before. Then we exited to continue onto the temple, or that was the plan. When Han and I turned around to talk to the others they weren't there. They had stayed in the orchard. So Han and I waited for a bit for them to come out. We didn't go back because we didn't want to get pelted with apples. So we walked around so we could enter behind them. Though we found them on the other side walking away. Rude huh?
Then we played a game of tag in the Gardens! It was fun, except when I ran into a wire... that was white and easy to see if you had been paying attention.
Then we went to the boys lounge and hung out there till five minutes before curfew. In that time I lost my shoe to Parkeve, Sea Bass tricked his roommate to think he was locked out, and Han found my shoe again.
Then Allyx and I came back to the apartment. I wanted to finish HP and HBP so I stayed up till 2:45 but I finished! Then I went to bed. I woke up at 12:30 Saturday afternoon. Oops. So I cleaned the kitchen, did the dishes, and after getting the other two to clean up their stuff, vacuumed the living room. Why? Because the boys were coming over as previously stated in another post.
Well 5 rolled around and Han was the only one to show up. The other boys were playing a video game and were at the boss so they "couldn't come." So Han and I watched the first episode of Dark Angel, then I made hamburgers. Guess what? Han knows about Firefly!!! How sweet is that? It was funny because he had asked if I knew of a tv series named Firefly. And I stared at him for a moment in shock. We then launched into a conversation about it. It was grand.
We had just sat down to watch another episode when Sea Bass showed up. We had gotten half way through the episode when Parkeve and Andrew showed up. They were making fun of it the whole time so it was kinda annoying but funny.
At 9:30 Allyx left to go to a movie and the boys went with her. It was cool because I had wanted to go to bed early. Somehow I didn't get to bed till 1:30. Oops.
And church was amazing today. The lessons were just that good.
Well gotta blaze!
Oh and Han liked Dark Angel :}

Going to bed early?

"I'm going to bed early tonight."
Why can that statement never come true? I went to humanities today and had a fun talk on the David and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Then I came home and basically lazed around. I had a meeting with my HR and the other student living coordinators in my complex. Too bad I was the only one who showed up. At least Bekka knows I'm reliable. Anyway I got back from that and didn't really do anything productive because my english class was cancelled today. I read a lot of HP though, nerdy as that sounds. I probably should have gone to the store but I had no energy. Because of that I thought I'd go to bed early. I took a shower around 7:45, got dressed in pajamas, ie my arabic hoodie and pj pants, and stretched out on a couch and continued my reading. Well around 9 Allyx came home with the boys from last night, though Parkeve was with them tonight. Somehow I was dragged to their water polo game that started at 10, don't worry I changed into jeans and a t-shirt. I didn't have my i-card so I sat on the sidelines and cheered them on. But next week I am so going to play. It was a great game. Our team won 9-6. It was sweet. Oh and I got a huge hug from Parkeve at the end. He was sopping wet and I was in street clothes. So I pushed him in the pool. I ran and sought protection from Han who was on the other side of the pool, also in street clothes. He had changed from his swimsuit already.
We had a conversation that pretty much went like this:
"So what series was it that you were telling us about again?"
"Dark Angel"
"What time on Saturday?"
"5."
"5 okay. We were having a debate whether it was 5 or 7."
"Yeah its 5."
"Sweet, I'll be there"
Then we talked about popcorn and other things. Then Parkeve came up behind me and picked me up. I kinda screamed/shrieked, so he let go. Then tried it again. This time I just turned around and pretended to beat up on him. It was pretty fun.
Then on the way back the boys walked us home, it was dark after all. Some how me and Han started talking about werewolves. It was funny. Then we talked about the stars and the vastness of eternity. And how we both love to star gaze.
Then we said goodbye to all the boys at the dorms and I came into our apartment and there were more boys! It was a party till 12 when one of the boys noticed it was curfew! I didn't have to say a thing, wahoo!
Anyway it was a good day after people came over. I'm glad I didn't go to bed early. Ha ha.
Gotta blaze.

A not so quick recap

"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart." -William Wordsworth
On Friday I went to woods and got tons of weird looks. That'll happen when you are wearing a bulging backpack, rolling a small suitcase along, and have two tubber ware containers under your arm. I was going home at 4:30 via the shuttle and there was no way I was trekking across campus back to my dorm when the bus stop was right there from the Austin building.
Good news though I did pretty good on the no bake cookies, thanks Lani! Woods was fun too even though I almost killed the middle peace for my clock.
I left early, the cookies were a bribe for my teacher, and went to the bus stop. I only had to wait a few minutes and everything was a go. The bus was full by the time we got to the last stop, or at least was supposed to be. I had given up my leg seats for nothing. Oh well charity and all that right?
Mom picked me up at the airport and we went to a hotel for the night. I don't know about her but I had a blast. he he :}
Saturday we went shopping for winter gear and shoes since mine are kinda falling apart. After a long process we finally found tennis shoes I liked and fit, a warm coat, gloves and a hat that's freakin sweet. Anyway oh and we went to the planetarium too. I was kinda disappointed cause I was expecting what the old planetarium did, cool star shows. It was still good though. I love how I can kinda understand 3d since I took psychology.
Then that night I played nertz with mom and Lani and I got to see megan too. It was a very good day all in all. Sunday mom let me sleep until 1 and then we ate and hung out a little before I left. Luckily no one was left behind at the gas station on the way up again.
I came back and it was snowing. Not real snow but the kind that melted right away again. Then I opened my apartment door and saw this:



Some back round really quickly. All four roommates left for the weekend and we left a key with the neighbors incase one of us forgot the key. Well at least they neighbors love two of us over here.
Anyway I left it up for the others to see and they were not as impressed as me. I felt very left out when they came home but that's okay. Allyx did not come back till the next day.
Monday nothing special happened because classes were as boring as usual and we did not have FHE. Apparently dad slacked off and our parents are getting a divorce. Though they, at least dad, has been claiming that since the second week.
Oh Crystal did make me feel loved and Sea Bass and Parkeve came over around 11. So I guess that is special.
Tuesday I got my test back from humanities. I got 45/45. Apparently the question I was worried about I was close enough to the monomyth he gave me the points, yea!
English was fun too. Though it's always fun in there.
Wednesday was tiring as usual. It's the day I have three classes and 15 minutes to scramble to the next when they are on the opposite side of campus. it starts at 11:30 and doesn't end till 5:20. It's grueling anyway. Math was boring as usual, provident living was really good, and woods... well woods needs it's own paragraph.
So we were supposed to move these huge boards for one of the teachers and Mort said be careful cause this wood is really sharp. Tree, yes his name is Tree, said jokingly "I wonder which one of us will get hurt." I jokingly replied, "Oh it'll be me." I should have knocked on wood, there was plenty around. As I was moving a board with the help of another guy it slid of the other boards and down my hand. I let the other two guys take the board and glanced down at my hand, hoping it was not cut. Luckily it wasn't. I only have a blood blister on my middle finger. Though that hurt until the end of class. Things did not get better. I was putting a cut into the side of my clock with a scary power tool. Well it got away from me and gouged the piece. Luckily Mort said it would mostly be covered up and it was in the back so no one would see it. Thank heavens. Then I was cutting the clock backing and I cut it too short. Hopefully I'll get a new one of friday. By this point I was done and cleaned up. Luckily the class was also done.
Then I came home and vegged. I have finally finished watching Dark Angel. I am highly depressed because it has been my favorite series for a while. I just never finished the second season. I'm kinda sad that fox did not pick it up for a third. Though I'm happy because the direction it was going was getting pretty weird. Even for a sci fi show.
Crystal came over and brought me treats. I think she is the first real visitor I've had since my parents. Other people will come over but always for the others so that made me feel special too.
So around 9:30 I take a shower and snuggle into bed with HP and the HBP and am trying to wind down to go to bed early. Well Allyx comes in around 11 and says some of the boys are here and so is(I will call him Han). I jump out of bed, get dressed and walk casually out and act surprised when I see four boys in my kitchen.
We talk and laugh for the next hour and I don't know what possessed me to do it but I invited them to come watch Dark Angel with me on saturday. Though it was mostly directed at Han. Why did I do it? I have no idea and I am still freaking out at the fact I did. The others are proud of me for doing it but I'm kicking myself. Go figure.
Oh we also got Boo d when we were away so last night, at like 1 in the morning Allyx and I took the muffins she made and boo d another apartment. it was actually kinda fun. You'd be surprised how many lights are on at that time. And how one roommate can go all stealthy like and the other one just laughs at the first. I thought my roll under a lighted window was cool too.
Anyway Gotta blaze.

Only in a Girls Dorm

"The pen is the tongue of the mind." - Miguel de Cervantes

So today was friggin amazing! I got up at 6 for a morning side, not so amazing, then came home and slept again till 10. I then got ready for my class and had fun dancing around the apartment, everyone else either being asleep or at class.
In class the teacher, Mr. Bodily he he clue, decided that after the test we could leave because his other class was to lost when he started teaching because he hadn't put up the assignment on i-learn. So after taking the test on the Hobbit, I'm pretty sure I passed with flying colors, I left. Guess how long the test took? 18 minutes. Well that was going from when the class started so it was probably even less. 18 minutes of class! How friggin sweet is that?
Oh and while I was making no bake cookies to bribe Mort to let me out of class early tomorrow it started to snow!!! Not like heavy stick to the ground type but it was still snow! All the apartment doors opened and all the girls started to celebrate by dancing and cheering. I think you will find that only in a girls dorm ha ha.
Okay so I take it back not all the girls were happy, Kia wanted the snow to go back and it did, but came back later for about 5 minutes. Now it's just cold but it was snow!!!!
WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and Kara my wonderful cousin is coming back to Utah to live with us for a while, I'm so excited for that too!

Um... Oops?

So I'll get to the title in a moment but a quick recap of the week.
Wednesday, provident living was super fun because the group that was teaching did a way fun activity. The topic was time management. The activity was they gave us a sheet of paper that had different things on it like study, go to class, read scriptures, go to the temple, homework, eat, ect. With each thing there was a location around campus, and let me tell you most of them were not close together. We had thirty minutes to go to each different location and find the code to verify that we were there. It was way fun and I almost got all of the things done. I would have if I had been alone because I would have run most of the way, or however long my body would have let me. But since I was with another girl I went at her pace so it was all good.
Side note, if I ever baby my children, please, slap me.
Then, I think it was Friday night I went next door with Danielle and played twister with a strobe light going. THat is really hard cause after a while you start to get a headache. But over all it was way fun.
Oh and I made cookies for my woods class cause apparently at construction sites it's doughnuts every Friday. Everyone seemed to like them cause they were gone by the time I left. Thanks Lani for that wonderful book again!!
Saturday I woke up with a start and yelled AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH for about the first 5 minutes. See it was 11:30 and general conference started at 10. So grabbed my computer and found it on the internet as fast as possible and watched the last thirty minutes. But I did watch the rest of the sessions with diligence, except when my roommates were talking so loud I couldn't hear the computer. They weren't so into watching, and didn't seem to mind they had missed the first session too. I think I found the problem to our apartment.
Then yesterday we had FHE. We played Taboo. The boys kinda didn't do so well but that's okay cause the girls won. Then after that we went out into the courtyard and threw frisbees around. It was way fun. And I might, might ask a boy in my FHE group to go to an oregon concert with me. I'm not so sure right now.
So to the tittle..... I kinda broke the garbage disposal. Apparently you cannot put noodles down there because it will clog the sink and you will be stuck with gross water in the sinks. He he. It should be fixed by tomorrow, I hope anyway because if not my roommates will kill me. Even though that's nothing compared to the mess they have made in the living room.
Oh and I'm sad because Silent Weekend was this past weekend and Miss B. posted pictures from it. I miss high school, the activities, the classes, the social life. And there you could at least get away from drama when you went home. Here it's just waiting to burst when you walk through the door. *sigh*
Well gotta blaze!
