General Conference

So... just so everybody knows... it was general conference this weekend. I LOVE GENERAL CONFERENCE. Not because I'm super extremely crazily LDS, or because that's the only thing I look forward to in my life. But it provides me with this time where I can just relax and let my beliefs just flow over me. If you don't like general conference that's okay... because I do have something that you will like. And if you don't you're super lame.


Anyways, I'm sure you've all heard of Rebecca Black's Friday. If not, edify your life and watch it here. It will be the most amazing 3:48 minutes of your life you'll ever have.

Did you watch it now? Good. Just in case you were wondering I was being extremely sarcastic up there. However I figured I'd make the song about a billion times better. And I was bored. So this is what I made up. If you want to go read the original lyrics, and see how much my song trumps them... they are located roundabouts here.

Here is my new song. Or parody... It's called Sunday.

Ten am turnin on my radio, gotta get a signal gotta listen. Gotta have the spirit gotta have the reverence. Seeing all the speakers the time is coming. Gotta turn on the TV too gotta find the channel, I see the Prophet! Sitting in the red chairs, standing at the pulpit. Gotta make my mind up how should I listen to his talk? It's Sunday Sunday general conference Sunday. Looking forward to the speakers speakers. Sunday Sunday general conference Sunday. Everybody's ready for the prophet to speak... Listening listening (yeah!) or watching watching (yeah!) fun fun fun fun looking forward to the second session! One forty five we're back at our TV. Sittin here waiting we want time to fly. Fun fun think about fun you know what it is. I got pens you got paper. We're gonna take some notes. I got pens you got paper we're going to feel the spirit! Listening on the radio, watching on the TV. Gotta make my mind up how should I listen? Yesterday was Saturday (Saturday) today it is Sunday (Sunday) we we we so excited. We so excited. It's general conference again! Tomorrow is Monday and Tuesday comes after wards. That means general conference will be done! But it's Sunday Sunday general conference Sunday...

Best thing ever? I thought so too. That's all.

How to Scare Off Your Date!

This was a speech that I did for my communication class, that I wrote and illustrated. I thought everyone would enjoy it :) and I've had some friends tell me to put it up. So... here you go!

"Let’s say you just met some new people You’ve been hanging out with them for a bit when they have to leave for a minute.  Before they go you jump on face book and you say “Hey! I’ll add you guys on here!” So you do. They leave and a couple of minutes later you suddenly get three texts and a call from an unknown number. You answer and have them ask you “Hey! Let me back into the building!”
You pause… and say “Who in the world is this!?”
They tell you their name, and it’s one of the kids you’ve just barely met but who you didn’t talk to at all. You ask “Where did you get my number?” to which they calmly reply “Face book!”
Keep in mind, while you were hanging out this person told you the only way he could get on the internet was the library.
Does this creep you out a little? Or are you totally fine with it? I know how I felt. He scared me so bad that any chance of him ever being more than a friend was gone after that move. It seemed very desperate and too familiar too fast. As a person who has had many boys who have tried to move too fast too soon in a relationship situation I decided to do my informative speech on how to scare off any girl or boy you are interested in in a romantic situation. All of us whether married, dating or single have had those people we’ve become interested in who’ve totally and completely scared us off.!  My speech is designed to tell you exactly how you can be that person who can scare off any member of the opposite sex you want to! Let’s begin.
Okay everyone. Let’s say you’ve just met this extremely attractive man or woman. The most amazing woman or man you’ve ever met. They look airbrushed, but it’s natural! You by some strange happenstance meet this godlike person at a party, talk to them for a moment and get/ give them your number. That was as far as your conversation went before they left and you had to go pinch yourself and make sure you weren’t dreaming.
Now it’s been a couple of days since you’ve seen them and you’re starting to think they may be just a dream! However, they call you and ask you out on a date for next Friday.) you decide to be the best date you possibly can. You want your date fall in love with you instantaneously while you drive to the restaurant. Perfect.
Here’s where you can use these tips to scare off your date and make sure that never happens. (Disclamer… these steps are so you know what you shouldn’t do on a first date and should not really be used when trying to catch the man or woman of your dreams. Unless you’re actually trying to make them hate you.) We’ll start with the men first:

Using this advice you can make sure that you will be able to scare him off for the rest of your life.
If you listen to these great tips for men and women, you can make sure that you can scare off any date you’ll ever have!
I hope you enjoyed my presentation and take these points into consideration on any date… whether you want to scare them off, or make sure that you don’t"

Oh to be able to see the powerpoint, make sure that you put it in full screen mode :)

I want to...

I love this song... and I want to remember it. It kinda describes my life to a certain point :) Both with " love" and with just everything.
I've learned to just jump into everything and go with it. Don't worry and take life one little bit at a time. And when you want to try and change something for the better-
Then do it.
There are some things right now I can't change about life... for obvious reasons. But... I can wait and live life as it comes at me and try to put the little pieces together to make the big picture the way I want it. Hopefully with Heavenly Fathers help and my own determination I can make my life everything I've always wanted; be it college, grades, understanding things, love, family or friends. And that's what I'm determined to do.

I've packed a cooler and a change of clothes
Let's jump and see how far it goes.
You got my heart and your daddy's boat
We got all night to make it float
We could sit on the shore, we could just be friends
Or we could jump in

Whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop it spinning
We could think it through
But I don't want to, if you don't want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came, with nothing to lose

But I don't want to, if you don't want to
Yeah we both got dreams, we could chase alone
we could make our own

Whole world could change in a minute
Just one kiss could stop this spinning
We could think it through
But I don't want to, if you don't want to
We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came, with nothing to lose
But I don't want to, if you don't want to

Never waste another day
Wonderin' what you threw away
Holdin me, holdin you
I don't want to, if you don't want to

We could keep things just the same
Leave here the way we came, with nothing to lose
But I don't want to, if you don't want to...
But I want to.

It's College Baby! :)

Dear everybody who reads this. COLLEGE HAS STARTED!
And I have to say... I love it. Everyone told me that I would and I would have a ton of friends, and guess what? I do! It's just wonderful! :) This week I had fun. I started my classes. Some of them are hard but some are pretty easy. My first class is Comm 1010. I have found some nice people in there. There is a very tall blond cute guy. Personally I think we should be friends. Best friends. But apparently i'm not cool enough. I already labeled myself as the nerd in that class since I  did an assignment, took a page, and everyone else took two sentences. And then the teacher told me to read it out loud, and that we could all leave because i'd explained the whole class in my assignment. So sadly I don't think super tall blond dude will be talking to me anytime soon. Unless he needs help with his homework. In this class there are also a bunch of hicks who think I won't get a job because I'm a woman. Or at least I'll get a dish washing job. And they were serious. I didn't ever think that i'd be called a feminist, yet when I got mad at them I was. Funnily enough none of them are married. Interesting... I wonder why. Anyways. I made them shut up when I proved how awesomely womanly I was when I took control of our group project. And today when they asked me if I got a job yet I replied " Maybe. Have you got a life yet?"  Smack down!!!
Anyways, I digress.
My next class is communication research. This one is full of upper classmen. And if you want to talk to a cute guy you have to check his ring finger to see if it's worth it or not. Most of the time it isn't worth it. Anyways. This one is hard. The professor looks just like the captain on Wall-e. (Sadly he sounds like him too!) My next class is interpersonal communication. That's like a discussion class. It usually doesn't have much homework. Which is very nice. But the professor is extremely weird... and old. And talks about her chickens, and her pierced toe, and how she had the knuckle taken out of her toe.  My last class is math 1040- statistics! I love his class because I understand statistics. Even though it takes me like two hours to finish my homework.
This weekend I also had fun, I went down to St. George and partied it up at Dixie State college with my cousins, went to DI, started a quote wall, went to a dance for two songs, exercised to Richard Simmons and many other things. I will now show you some wonderful parts of my college life, through pictures. :)

My roommate Crissy, accepting her childhood dreams.
The place I made for my roommates friend Blaine because he is here so often.
Blaine, in his spot, with the picture I drew of him.

Nobody knew about the face game here... so I brought it to SUU!
My beautiful friend Maddie- she is so funny! I did her hair. I know. I'm amazing.
Adventures in Walmart are a normal occurrence. Finding these gems... are not.
