Answered Prayer!!

Ok, I was just looking back at one of my older posts and saw that I said I couldn't find my memory card adapter, and to stay tuned for an answered prayer- well, stayed tuned paid off! Now you get a story! Good blog stalker you! ;)

SO I'd been praying that I could find my adapter, and I looked EVERYWHERE! I asked my roommates, looked all over my room, kitchen, living room- everywhere! That sucker was not to be found. So the morning before I left to go home, I was kind of half awake half asleep at like 6am, and I kind of saw myself finding the adapter underneath a some papers in my desk drawer. So I woke up and looked where I "saw" it and there it was!!!!!!!!!!!! It was crazy!!!!!!!! And a miracle! I'm so grateful for answered prayers!!

Lazy May-z Day-z

In an attempt to post pone attacking my somewhat daunting homework load, I decided to blog about life instead of live it ;)

So mostly the reason I haven't been blogging is because I've been kickin it up with my new wardies! I LOVE MY WARD!!!!!!!!!! It is by far the funnest ward I've been in at BYU. I was a little nervous at first because everyone told us it was kind of an older ward, but everyone has been so welcoming and made us feel right at home!! There is seriously something going on pretty much every night! For example this week:
Monday- Ward FHE- auction to raise money for a charity for kids in Belize! ( I got a $1 backpack, a summer bucket-o-fun, a brand new $25 straightener, and a guy in our ward paid $80 to go on a date with our apartment!!! It was way more fun and got a lot more money than I thought they would!)
Tuesday- Personal Interview with Bishopric member, Institute, Ward softball game, Ward soccer game, P90X
Wednesday- Frisbee game on campus, ward kickball game, movie w/ a group from the ward
Thursday- ward temple trip, stamp party

Another reason our ward is so fun is we take our ward inturmurals very seriously!! We ALWAYS have at least 10 spectators at every game!! It's so fun to go and support/ be supported by ward members! It definitely builds unity!

So moral of that story= my ward is da bomb diggity!

On another note- I think I finally decided what I want to major in!! Drum roll anyone? ba dum dum dum dum- ENGLISH EDUCATION!!!! I've thought about it before, but now I'm getting serious about it and I'm REALLY excited!! I LOVE reading and i enjoy writing, and I want to help kids to learn to love reading and write better! I've had such amazing English teachers that have inspired me and I can only hope to be as good as them!! As I looked around at other majors, I think I realized that I really do want to teach, but teaching all day, every subject, everyday seems a little daunting to I wanted to narrow my focus so I can (hopefully) do a better job! So that's where my life seems to be heading at the moment...

Another reason I haven't blogged recently is becuase I got to go HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVED LOVED LOVED being home!!!! I DID NOT want to come back, but alas, classes beckoned. And I've had fun since being back, so I guess it's ok....I should probably do a seperate blog about that...hmmm...we'll see about that one...ok. My creative juices are sucked dry. And my early morning swim is starting to get to me. a nap beckons. as does my homework. so.

peace n blessins!

Isn't it wonderful?

Life seems to have a way of working out. Those less intelligent members of the general population attribute it to luck, but! I happen to be more intelligent than those less intelligent members and know it's because my Heavenly Father is watching out for me!!! (they're not less intelligent by the way, just misinformed!)
Sometimes I feel kind of bipolar being bummed out by some problem and then realizing how good I've got it and how AMAZING life is! But ya know, I think that's just life for ya! Last week in church someone said "we're not human beings having a spiritual experience. We're spiritual beings having a human experience" Too true, church speaker, too true!
So I've had a couple bumps in my little life road trip the past couple days, hours, weeks, heck life! But really I hardly remember most of them and the ones I do remember just seem to work themselves out so swimmingly that I can't complain!
I'm just so grateful for the Lord's guiding influence!!! I for truth could NOT do it without His help!! And I'm super grateful for new friends which I'm making oodles of in my new ward which I LOVE!!!!!! I just love people and our ward does stuff all the time and I get to meet new people at like every activity it seems like, which is SO fun! All I can say is, this spring is lookin good! Let the good times rollllllllll!!!!!

Family Finance teacher quote enchanted today which made me think of one of my favorite quotes he said the other day:
"So the prodigal son went to his dad and in essence told him he wanted him dead because he wanted his money! Well that's just a little bit north of rude!"

I love that guy!

On a sad note- I can't find my memory card adapter!!!!!!!! Sadness! So I have no super recent pictures to share with the general public. alas. Hopefully stay tuned for an answered pray and more pictures or a dent in the financial pole(?) Figurative pole of course. OK, I'm going to go to bed now!
As Glozell would say...
Peace and blessins!

The Only Thing Constant is Change!

The times...they are a changin! And boy oh boy are they changing. I made a rather life altering decision this week. At least, that's what it feels like at this point. So let me back up a little and give some background history: so the past couple months I've just kind of been thinking about my major, and I just haven't felt very settled on it, but I just kept going with the program because I didn't know what else to switch to. So the first week of Spring term, first day actually, I went to the math class for El Ed majors at 8 in the morning, and I was like ummm I don't know if I want to do I went to the advisement center in the Wilk and talked with Alberto Puertas- he was like I think you should just drop all your classes and take my career exploration class. Life is full of encertainties, but you want to have 80% known, not 80% unknown. So just try it! And the good thing is about life is you can always make a u-turn! So- I did it! I dropped all my classes and signed up for career exploration, guitar, and german (which i later switched to Spanish and then Family finance) This kind of thing is very unlike me, but it's felt pretty liberating I must say! I feel like I can do anything! The world is full of potential!!!!! Now I just have to decide what exactly it is I want to do....but I'm takin a little leap of faith here and seeing where it takes me!! So let the good times roll! And hope some major or occupation falls into place along the way!

we watched Pocahontas last night (which I have wanted to do for the last like 6 months!!) :
Pocahontas: The ripples.
John Smith: What about them?
Grandmother Willow: So small at first, then look how they grow. But someone has to start them.

Here goes my ripple!!! :)
