peace be with you.... definitely

this video is the only thing making me laugh today.

"i love these guys more than myself."

sorry to be a debbie downer lately. whaaa whaaa
just remember:

"always have true faith, and always be victorious!"
"i march to a beat of a different drummer."
"i like the fact that people look at me with twelve heads like.. ooo what's that?!"
"judges, i plan to knock you on your feet."
"i'm gonna just wing it!"
"why do i feel like giving the camera the finger?"
"take it! take it! take it! I'm going for actressing!"
"If I could legally moon ya, I would!"

magic 8 ball

do you ever wish we all had a magic 8 ball
in which we could see our future?
i know it's possible to make life's decisions (because obviously everyone has made them) but i am so overwhelmed and confused by them. i can't wait until i can just hold my baby and know that it's all over...
until my kids grow up and then i have to worry about them

this week i realized (again) how amazing my little sister is.
i smudge her because i'm so proud.
she pushes me away because she acts older than i
i ask her advice
i make her talk to people for me
i look to her for help
she always makes the right decisions
she is always logical
she is such a good, good girl.
she stands up for herself and for what
she knows to be true when friends do not.
and i'm so proud to call her my little sister!
i love you al!

i will not

come to terms with my eyes not being blue.
some tell me they're green. others tell me they're grey.
i wish they were as blue as they used to be!

i am so lucky

that i met 3 of my best friends freshman year.
being randomly roomed with Laur was such a blessing.
thanks to my Heavenly Father!
I would have died without them.

The BYU Ballroom Dance Company Concert is
Friday April 9 @ 7:30 pm and Saturday April 10 @ 2:00 and 7:30 pm.
They are touring and competing in Blackpool, England this year so it will be a PHENOMENAL show! I will be performing one number besides the finale.
Tickets are $12 (or $25 for floor seating).
It will be in the Marriott Center.
I get credit for how many tickets I sell so talk to me about tickets! You can buy them at the Marriott Center ticket office. But get them from me! I get first dibs when they go on sale tomorrow morning. Good seats = contact me! :)

cold, cold, go away, come again another day (week)!

don't colds come always at the worst times?!
i'm sleeping 9+ hours a night so i can get rid of this one. it's terrible.
i think the last time i got this much sleep was in elementary school.
but today is so
before we know it, it will be pool time again!
but for now, back to my 6 page paper :(

it's BACK!

can't wait to watch the ballroom champs this weekend at the BYU DANCESPORT NATIONALS!! Last year, I watched with Nat, this year I'm still looking for a buddy! The best times to go are Friday night (Battle of the Champions) and Saturday night (Amateur Latin Finals). CAN'T WAIT!! Just picked up my dress... same one as last semester. Still deciding if I'll get a spray tan or not..
I think not..

could i pay someone to...

make all my decisions for me?!
i am the WORST!
sometimes Jeffie will make me decide just because i'm so bad at it.

children's books

one of the best things about being an elem ed major is that i get to be a kid again.
it's like reliving my past only better because i don't have to learn everything again.
i'm in a children's literature class right now and was reading a book called "rules" for the class when a girl asked:
"so... why are you reading a kid book?"
me: "oh i'm an el ed major so i have to take a class called children's literature and we have to read several children's books."
her: "really? i wonder why..."
me: "well the class is called children's literature so..."
her: "ya.. i just don't get why they would have you read those."

hmmm... wonder why... ;)

just had to laugh at that one.

i do recommend reading "Miss Spitfire" by Sarah Miller. It's Anne Sullivan's point of view while working with Helen Keller. Really interesting. Quick read. Absolutely loved it! It definitely opened my mind.

i also recommend "Rules" by Cynthia Lord so far (i'm only 60 pages into it). It's about a girl who deals with an autistic brother. I just love reading about people with disabilities. So interesting to me! maybe i should look into that for a major... hmm.. ;)

have i ever told you?

how much i LOVE pilates?
i went back yesterday for the first time in 2 1/2 months
today my body feels solid, sore, worked, and healthy
i just feel accomplished after.
can't wait to lose the winter weight.
bring on the hundreds!!!
