I'm house sitting for Amanda and Brady while they are in California looking for a house. Well the first night was a little creepy. So lastnight Lily came over to stay with me. We went to the redbox and got Dear John and Bandslam. Dear John was awful! It made both Lily and I cry. Bandslam was good and happy for a second movie. Well today we've been having a slow lazy day. We're waiting for 3pm to come around so we can go meet everyone for Camping!!

American Date

Now that I think of that. I think a show called 'American Date' would be hilareous! Anyways. I went on a date tonight. A double date. It was actually really fun! We went to Tralfaga and played mini golf and other random things. Then he, Brian, tried to kiss me. KISS me! I was like, WTH!? This was a first date, and he doesn't live in Utah either, I was doing a favor for a friend. Well after the date we came back to my place and watched the rest of American Idol. Which was AMAZING!! I loved every bit of it! I'm sad Simon is leaving :(

Days go by

I miss my friends. So much. I wish I was in Alaska right now. I go through stages of liking Utah and being fine being down here. But then there are times when I just want to be home. I think everyone has those stages. It has been exspecially hard these last few weeks. With Bert dieing to my bestfriend having open heart surgery, I wish I could be there for support and confort. One of my good friends called me tonight, she was having a really hard time with her boyfriend. I wish I could be there for a shoulder to cry one. My bestfriend Ethan just found out that he has a hole in his heart, a birth defect. He has to have open heart surgery next month. My mom just had another baby. My 9th sibling, fourth sister. I probably wont get to see her until Christmas. Well I'm just venting. It's actually not so bad down here...ish.

As some of you know, my friend Bert from Alaska hung herself last week. We don't know why she did it. Just rumors it was because of a boyfriend leaving her. I think one of the hardest things for me is because I don't understand. She was such a happy person. She had the strongest testimony of the church that I knew. She was an amazing person, someone who stood up for what she believed. She was an example to all who knew her.
Her funeral was today. I really wish I could have been there. One of my friends called me after it was over and was crying. She said there was a lot of people. They had to open the over flow in the chapel and put more seats up in the gym. She said our old Bishop, Bishop Hobbs, got up and talked. Bishop Hobbs is the most wonderful soft spoken kind compassionate and understanding person I know. He is always ready to listen and has a smile ready whenever you see him. He and Bert had a special bond. Bert was a convert and Bishop Hobbs was the Bishop when she joined the church.
His talk seemed to touch every one's heart in that room today. The spirt was so strong and you could really feel its presence. Bert will be greatly missed. But I know that I will see her again someday.
Although unheard I'd like to thank you
For always being there
Even when you were bedridden
You always seemed to care.
You meant so much to all of us
You were a special friend and thats no lie
You brightend up the darkest day
And even the greyest sky.
Many tears I have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
I know that you are happy now
Couse you're no longer in pain.
For years on I'll remember you
And what you used to say
You made each of us smile
And live to the fullest every day.
I was not ready to say goodbye
I miss you so much it makes me cry
The times we laughed will not be forgotten
The mistakes we made will be pardoned.
Our friendship is forever
Until death, did we part
Although you're away physicaly
You'll always be in my heart.

Day Two: All Things Disney!

Day two was just as great as day one! We woke up and got out of the room a lot faster than yesterday. We were actually on the road before D-Land opened. We parked in Donald Duck lot. Just in case anyone was wondering =D I feel like there were a lot more people than there were yesterday. But the lines still were not that bad. And it still hasn't gotten unbearably hot...yet.. It was sunny enough that I think most of us g0t a little red. Favorite moment of the day? Probably when Lily, me, Kyle, Ray, Kaden, Gabby, Becky and Ben went on Space Mountain. Lily and I rode together behind everyone else. Then there were four people behind us. We were about to start our journey when the lady directing the ride asked Lily and I to get off. We both thought that Becky, Ray or Ben had seen us get off. They made us get on another thing. Never had that happend to us before. Well we got on and had a fun ride! Space Mountain is always great! When we got out and went to find everyone, we found Becky all paniced. They thought we had fallen off the ride or something. Because we had just talked to her right before we were asked to get out. And I guess they did'nt see us get out. So we were there and then we wern't. Well here are a few pictures.

Finally Disneyland!

We finally got to D-Land yesterday. Or I guess we actually only got to our hotel. But we went swimming, it was nice and warm. Today we woke up and went pretty much straight to the park. After getting a little lost looking for parking, wups. It was a blast! The lines were short and the weather was perfect, not to hot and not to cold! Here are a few pictures.

Guess who got a letter!?

FINALLY! I have recieved a letter. Actually not just one. I got THREE!!! Yay me! One is from my brother, one is from Elder Watson and then the other is from my school (Not to much excitment there) But THREE letters all the same!


Ish has become the new word. We use it in games, we use it to discribe things, and we use it to explain what we should be doing, but what we're not doing. I should be packing. It's 1am. I'm leaving in about 26 hours or something like that. Where to? Disneyland of course! I've been putting off packing all night. I got home from dinner at Amanda's intending to get all my packing done. But no, I made the mistake of getting on Facebook and then got to talking to Robert for hours. Then we decided we wanted to go swimming. Yes you read right. Swimming at midnight! Ahh the blessings of being young and free. So he picked me up and we went to Shari's. I just got back and am still putting it off because now I am on here bloging. I have managed to make a little bit of an effort. (See picture below.) I don't know why I'm puting off packing. Maybe it's because I don't know what to pack. Should I bring pants? A long sleeve shirt? A jacket in case it gets cold? And the list goes on. Now I'm getting tired. Could it be time for bed? Leave packing till very last minute? We will see how far I get tonight.

Summer lovein'

Once upon a time I went swimming. Outside. In a pool. And got sunburned. It was fun. The end.

(I went swimming with a couple friends today at the outdoor pool at their apartment. It was actually rather war surprising enough. I plan on doing a lot more swimming this summer.)

Uh oh!

So I came home from work early today. I was feeling really sick. So I got home and pretty much watched tv all day. Took a short nap. Around 7 I put some chicken in the oven for dinner. About ten minutes later Hauns came over and wanted me to come play Ultimate Frisbee. Now I'm really trying to get more involved with my ward. Maybe learn to like them more. So I went. Put on shoes and walked right out the door. It was a blast! When I got home and walked in the door, I was like, mmmm, somthing smells good! Then it hit me! Crap! I forgot about the chicken!! I pulled it out of the oven and was actually surprised that it wasn't burnt. And it actually tasted good with some BBQ sauce.

The Count Down Begins.

Well actually the count down has been going since the tickets were bought. But now it really begins, five days until we go to Disneyland! It's so exciting, I can't wait! Just need to make it through this busy week of working everyday all day long. Sometimes I really dislike my job. Buuut it is money and mostly it is fun!
Right now I'm waiting for Megan to pick me up. I've got my court thing for my speeding ticket in Alaska today. I've got to appear over the phone since I can't be there in person. I'm kinda freaking out. The worst that can happen is I have to pay a lot of money. But that's the worst. Lets hope for the best!
After that I've got work.
Then I have a meeting with my financial aid guy at UCC. Then a meeting with the student help to schedule my classes. Did I mention I'm starting July 19th?
So that's all for today. Well now at least. I'll let everyone know how my court meeting goes.
