A Tribute to Some of the Most Wonderful Girls EVER!

So basically, Freshman year at BYU wasn't what I expected. I thought it was going to be easy. I thought I'd pass classes with a breeze, living alone would be a party, and that I would get along great with all my roommates. Ha boy was I wrong. College classes are HARD. I got a lower GPA than I thought I would and I actually really had to study and do homework, unlike high school. I would be the best student ever if I went back to high school now haha! Living alone was a party sometimes, but it couldbe lonely and hard too. There were no parents telling us to clean our rooms or do chores and our apartment got pretty messy at times. I didn't have a mommy to take care of me or call in to work or school for me when I was too sick or having a rough day. No one was there to cook my meals and I actually had to make the effort to go somewhere or make something to eat (and btw, I have had way too much fast food!). I had to do it on my own and figure it out the hard way. And as roomies, at the beginning of the year, we all thought we were going to get along so perfectly and be best friends. Well, we did get along pretty great, but we had our downs too. Arguing over whose turn it was to clean the kitchen or over shower time or what to have for Sunday dinner. Let's just that we're definitely a lot more comfortable with each other than we were at the beginning of the year. ;)


But I learned SO much from all of these things that I had to figure out myself. And all these things I've learned will help me a ton later on in life. And I've made some of the best friends ever. I love my roommates like sisters. We've all gotten so close and although we're all going to start going our separate ways, I hope we can all stay friends and remember all our crazy quotes and random memories. Dang, I think I might start crying just thinking about it! :( But I just wanted to write about how each of my individual roomies has impacted me.




CHELSEY: Oh how I love this girl so much. Chelsey is one of the funniest people I know. She'll be sitting in her room and all of a sudden I'll hear her laughing about some random tv show she's watching or something funny she just read. She's always so happy and SO diligent. Somehow, she always found time to do her homework and get way goood grades AND watch her favorite tv shows. If you want to know anything about the latest music, celebrities, or tv, she's your go-to girl. We also have never failed to miss an episode of our favorite show, Glee (I got her hooked haha)! I have loved rooming with Chels so much! She's one of the funnest people I know and I hope we'll have many more crazy times to come... ;)


HOLLIE: Happy Hollie. That's what I would have to call her! Weirdly enough, Hollie and I actually went to the same high school, but never knew each other. That proves how big our hs was. She has definitely been one of my greatest friends this year. We love to bake and clean together (good thing since no one else in our apartment does..jk). I'd always get the latest update on the guys she liked, because there were many! She was also always there when I needed someone to talk to or hang out with. She was also always there to tell me when I was breaking the honor code. ;) I'm gonna miss rooming with this girly so much because she's been such a great influence on my life!


KELLY: K Lo! Kelly is one of the biggest sweethearts I know! She is absolutely hilarious and so honest and blunt too. It's great. She has the biggest sense of humor but she has the biggest heart too. I also learned that I should actually study from her. Without fail, Kelly was always studying in her room or at the library. I loooooved hearing her talk in Spanish whenever she was on the phone, giving family prayer, or talking to me or someone else. She has a beautiful accent. And I cannot forget to mention her crazy wonderful talent for art! The world should watch out..cuz one day this girl's gonna be FAMOUS! Haha Kelly is such an awesome and talented girl and I love her to death! :)

CHRISTINE: Oh how much I love my mom/relief society president/nurse/roomie so so SO much! Christine is one of the most caring people I know and I definitely could not have gotten through this year without her. Every time I was sick, she was right there giving me the medicine I needed or calling her mom for advice on what to do. She is gonna be one of the best nurses out there one day. I can for sure attest to that. She also helped me so much with boy advice and just lifting up my spirits whenever I was down. And anyone else. She was the relief society pres. in our ward and I know that she cared(s) about every single girl in our building and that she'd do anything for them. Haha and I can't forget her amazing talent of singing! I think I heard her singing from her room every single day, but I didn't mind because she has such a great voice! I will definitely miss this Cali-crazy chick! :)


BROOKE: Ohhhhh Brookie J. :) There's way to much to say about how much I LOVE this girl! Wow, I doubt I could have gotten through any part of my freshman year without her. She helped me through it all and was there for me through it all. We had so many fun times going to dances, walking EVERYWHERE (including the Wendy's drive through), being my personal trainer and teaching me how to work out, fun classes, scooter riding, making lots and lots of movies, and so much more. I seriously can't express in words how grateful I am for Brooke and how grateful I am to have one of the best friends in the whole world! I feel like crying just thinking about it and I cannot wait for next year so we can be roomies again and party it up even more! Honestly though, I'm the luckiest girl alive to have BFF like Brooke. laaaaaaa :)

Thanks so much to the girls of Fugal 182! I love you and I will miss you all sooooo much! But the memories I have will never ever be forgotten. I had a wonderful first year of college!!! :D

It's Almost Over?!

Today was my last day in church in Freshman ward. How weird...this means that Freshman year is actually like..over? :( :? :) I don't know how I feel about this..

I'm excited to go home so I can be with my family that I haven't really been able to spend quality time with since I came to college. I'm excited to see old friends and be able to play. I'm excited for the joys of summer like flip flops, swimming, and vacations. I'm excited to have no school and get rid of those stresses. I'm so excited to be home.

I'm sad to leave behind all the fun memories I've had this year. I'm sad to leave behind my roommates, some of the most amazing girls that I've gotten to know. I'm sad to not have school, because in reality, I'm a nerd and I love it. I'm sad to lose all the freedom I've had and have to go back to rules and chores. I'm sad to say goodbye to BYU, the place where I've wanted to go to school my whole life, for 4 months.

It's crazy to think how fast it all went by. I still remember the first day I came here, crying as I left my home and parents and everything I was comfortable with. And here I am and I'll probably be crying as I leave Provo, because now everything I'm comfortable with is here. All I know is that there are going to be so many things coming my way and I really have no idea what they'll be. All I can do is have faith. Faith in my Heavenly Father that he'll lead me in the right direction. Faith in life that it will treat me ok. And faith in me that I'll do what's best for me and what I'm supposed to do. I have learned so much this year and I will never forget any of it. And there are so many wonderful people in my life that I will never want to leave behind. My life has definitely been changed for good.

Wow, I think I'm definitely a lucky one. :)

Where Should I Live?

I found a fun website that takes the things you like and then tells you where you should live! Here are my top 10:

1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

2. Providence, Rhode Island

3. New Haven, Connecticut

4. Hartford, Connecticut

5. Little Rock, Arkansas

6. Norfolk Virginia

7. Long Island, New York

8. New York City, New York

9. San Diego, California

10. Boston, Massachusetts

Ha, I guess it told me what I knew all along--I'm a city girl! I've always wanted to live in the city. Everything about big cities just amaze me and make me feel so excited. But for now...I'm here in Provo, Utah (and going back home in less than a week!). But someday.................... :)

So in SHAPE!!!

I've been working out so hard for the past few weeks. Dang, I've loved it! My friend Brooke is on the track team so whenever she doesn't go to track in the morning or doesn't have a hard workout, we go lift and run. I lifted 75 pounds the other day! I've also been learning how to hurdle and run like a champ! Hah it's been great and I've been feeling so in shape.

I have been kinda sore, but running and working out feel so good. I think I almost like it more than ballet, weirdly enough. I'm so glad that I've found something else that I like, because I feel like I've danced my whole life and I haven't really tried other things, so I'm glad I'm branching out. Anyways, I need to shower...so I better go. Before I kill everyone with my awful stench of BO! ;)

Life is LoCo :/

Dang, it's been waayyyy too long since I posted...oops!!! Sorry, the college life has got me up and running from dance parties to finals to warm weather to boys. Yep, I'm very very busy. But I decided to take a break from studying for my finals today and blog. Because I can't give up on this thing yet..haha.

Life has been so stressful. So many good and bad things have been happening.

Bad: My laptop broke down on Monday. RIGHT BEFORE FINALS AND WHEN I HAD TO WRITE AN ESSAY!!!
Good: I have great roomies that let me use their laptops and my wonderful father let me use another one of our family's laptops while he's fixing mine.

Bad: I have 3 finals this weekend. :(
Good: I'm gonna be home for the summer for good in a week and a day, and after Monday, I will be living a free life.

Bad: I get distracted WAY too easily.
Good: Because of this, I baked two cakes this weekend and cleaned our whole kitchen yesterday.

Bad: I am sooooo sore.
Good: I've been working out pretty regularly with BFF who's on the track team and I've been learning to hurdle and lift. I lifted 75 lbs yesterday! :D

Bad: I watched Glee instead of studying.
Good: I got to watch Glee!

Bad: I have work every morning at 7:50 and I'm soooooo tired.
Good: $$$$$

Bad: BOYS ARE DUMB!!! >:(
Good: I am single and loving it and partying every night with my best friends and having the time of life!!! Oh yeah! :D :D

Anyways, that's my life. This is how it goes. There are good and bad things, but it just depends on if I'm looking at the glass half full or half empty. I'm just gonna try as hard as I can to live my life free, happy, full of joy, and just for me! I would post pictures, but they're on my other laptop. So look at facebook for those...and if you're not my friend, then add me! :D
