i suppose it's time for another needed update. it's been a while since i actually provided any legitimate information regarding what i've been up to and the like. well, the answer to that is nothing. i feel like college really isn't as difficult as everyone makes it out to be. i hardly feel stressed at all. i mean, i suppose i feel a bit stressed at this moment because i skipped my last family studies class and now it's 12:53 a.m. and it turns out that i have an exam next class that i didn't know i had (don't worry mom, i printed out the study guide and am getting right on that....right after i'm done with this) and now it's biting me in the ass juuuuust a bit. anywho, the past few months have actually been moving along quite swiftly, and it has honestly been a blast. it's super hard to believe the semester is almost over. so here's a bit of an overview of the past few months. i love october. for reals. i love that during october fall is juuuuust starting to happen so it's not unbearably hot, but also not out-of-control freezing like i hate. i hiked timpanogos with my fambam and the youth group:) turns out i'm wayyy more out of shape than i thought. i still continually spend nearly every waking moment at kappa sig. i lovelovelove those boys and feel so incredibly blessed to be able to spend time with all of them<333 for halloween, i was mistaken multiple times as a "beer maiden," but no. i was candy corn. and how i just adore halloween. henry and i went trick-or-treating (he was the only one willing to go with me..) and you know what? we were criticized and ridiculed time and time again. supposedly, we were embarrassing and disgraceful, and there was no way we would have any luck hunting for candy on a sunday. needless to say, they were quite apologetic when i returned nearly an hour later equipped with a massive bag full of chocolatey goods:)) except then they attacked me which was so. not. cool. speaking of chocolate, a couple friends and i visited Hatch Family Chocolates, and if you don't know what that is, then you don't watch enough t.v., and shame on you. it recently started to get really cold, and has been snowing a bit. i think maybe this winter i'll try to enjoy the snow a bit. maybe get out and ski or something. however, it's not likely. i went grocery shopping a couple days ago, and just guess who is already almost out of chips and guacamole? this girl. i'm in search of a job, except not really. i set up my classes for spring semester and i'm very excited to be taking yoooga:) i love having required exercise already planned for me. it's really just so handy. lately, i've been listening to a lot of country music, and have a new favorite song of the day: If I Die Young by The Band Perry. you should be currently, or have just listened to it. and also, i'm not really concerned about stupid things at the moment. i kind of like it that way:) i cleaned my room thoroughly, i think it was sunday night. it's dirty again. it's tuesday. my newest favorite nail polish is Foiled Rotten by N.Y.C. and it's not even mine. i stole it from kenz...sorry.. z and i got a rat:) her name is Lola and she is the cutest little thing. unfortunately, Lola the rat hates me. i visited some of my good friends up at USU in logan over the weekend, and had a total blastyblast:) i purchased about a million bags of on-sale halloween candy, which actually turned out not to be on sale, and am currently munching on a fun-size kit kat:) kenz and i have retrieved nearly the entire building of 814's name tags, but still are working on obtaining the rest from our hall. if you were to look into our room from the parking lot, you would first notice the multi-colored christmas lights framing our 2nd floor window, and then would soon after catch a glimpse of the many different paper name cards placed creatively all over the back of our door. the cutest:) however, it would appear that kenz and i aren't the only pranksters of building 814. coming home one day and finding a rotten and squished pumpkin outside of our front door was most likely my least favorite thing in a long time. it was also really cool when i tried to move it and the pumpkin moldiness fell into itself and squished into our floor. don't worry, the pumpkin was eventually removed. however, each time i reach the top of the stairwell, and fling open the door, the stench of rotting pumpkin still lingers in the goop stained carpet. i mentioned in a previous blog that the shithead above me liked to blast his music a bit too loud. it was, at the time, just a bit disconcerting. here's the cool part. it's worse now. if i didn't know any better, i would very likely assume that living above me are four 500 lb. men who get their kicks out of pacing the floors, tipping over filing cabinets, and cranking their underground, techno rap to the absolute highest decibel. pounding on the ceiling has worked in the past, but they've gotten clever and now only pound back. it is much more often that i find myself reaching for my earplugs and ibuprofen. assholes. last night, kenz, melody, and i watched nick and norah's infinite playlist while sipping on hot cocoa (even though mine wasn't equipped with the baby marshmallows..bummer..) and it was just soooooooo delightful, i tell ya:) i've been visiting home quite a bit more often. sometimes i just super miss the fam and the pupps. it is just the worst. well, it's definitely 1:16 a.m. and i certainly have some studying to get in. so i guess this is it. au revoir.
- to mom & dad & bro & pupps: i love you:)
- to the Danish boys: don't go.
