Full of pie!

I hope you all had a wonderful family filled Thanksgiving! It was so nice to just get a break from school and worries and spend some quality time out on the farm. The best thing about it? Well, there were numerous things, but most importantly, the time I was able to just spend with family, relaxing and playing and eating pie!
I love thanksgiving because its a holiday where you give thanks for your blessings! I've been blessed with so much. To name a few things, I'm grateful for:
My heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ
My wonderful parents
My crazy siblings
The farm
The holidays
My education and the opportunity I have to get one
French Toast
Good roommates
my calling
Scrambled eggs and cheese
The scriptures
journal writing
Cruncy leaves
the smell of christmas trees
New friends who accept you for who you are
and Old friends who will always be there for you
These are just a few things i'm grateful for. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! now...

It's almost time for PIE!!

Harvest Pie

Are you getting excited for pie!?!

Thanksgiving is only a week away!  Can i just tell you how much this fact makes me happy?!?! I'm SO ready for a break.  School is going well, but I definitely could use a few days off! (or to just catch up at least!)

Well, here's an update on my life:

I've got a job!!! Yup, I'm officially a travel secretary for OIT (office of Information Technology).  I book flights/conferences/hotels/rental cars for the executives and engineers for all of their conferences.  Its pretty cool.  These guys are in charge of all the computery stuff for BYU and also some of the church as well.  So ya, my job is pretty cool!  i've even got a desk and everything! It makes me very happy!  I feel like i've got a legit job, and I love it! (so far at least.  I mean, i've only been working there for 4 days, but so far so good!)

I only have one essay left for the entire semester! YAY!!!!  for reals, i'm so done.  its for my Writing 150 class, which PS: I absolutely hate!  My professor is so boring, and makes english seem sooooooooo boring.  If it werent for good english teachers in the past, I would seriously consider changing my major.  Plus the fact that it is at 8 in the morning doesn't help a whole lot.  8 O'clock is just a tad bit too early for this girl.

I did my laundry!  I actually really like doing laundry i've discovered.  I love having clean fresh clothing to wear!  I just have been postponing doing it because i've been so busy lately, but last night I finally did it while studying for SFL 210.  Unfortunately, I left all my clean clothes in my hamper, so thats waiting for me to fold and put away when I get home, but its all good.  Doing laundry actually acts as a destressor for me, so I really don't mind at all.

I watched the show Parenthood.  I really like this show alot.  It's got Lauren Graham (aka Lorelai Gilmore) and a bunch of other people in it, and I don't know why, but i just really enjoy it.  Its all about these 4 siblings who all have children and how they deal with being a parent and such.  I enjoy it at least.

Alrighty, well i'm going to go and do some more productive things!  I have thursdays off from work for the rest of the semester, so it's nice to have the afternoon off (somewhat. I do have a class at 1 and at 4...)

Alrighty well i'm feeling pretty great about myself at this moment.  I basically just busted out a Great Works paper in about an hour.  For me, that's pretty good.  It usually takes me all afternoon to write a paper, and granted, this paper is shorter than most of those other papers, but still, i'm feeling pretty great! I can check that off my list of things to do which is just such a good feeling.  I feel like all of my professors collaborated together and decided to have all of our major assignments and tests and such at the same time! Its killing me!  But I've sort of scheduled out my time and i think i'll be just fine, i just can't let myself get distracted with things like...blogging haha

So last weekend was pretty fun! I went on a date with Tim on friday night, which actually went better than i thought it would.  It was my first real blind date, and I've heard the horror stories of blind dates, so i was a bit nervous, but it was a fun night!

And then on Saturday, we had the "adult session" of stake conference.  Can i just say that I've never been pounded more in the face about getting married then i did for those 2 hours?!  Geez, i'm only 18 for goodness sakes! It was good advice and such, but all things in moderation people!  Literally every speaker talked about marraige and dating and it got to be too much. It was good, just a bit much.

So after that meeting, me and my roomies went home and we just decided to have a low key evening and color pictures and listen to music.  It was great actually!

Yay for resorting back to our childhood and coloring! haha it actually was pretty fun believe it or not.

well my battery is about to die, so I guess thats all the update your gonna get! sucka! haha
