"there's nothing ironic about show choir."

oh its truly that a word?
hum...anyways, i found a new favorite show. it MAY even top grey's anatomy. i said MAY top...we will see where it leads.
but SERIOUSLY. this show is me in a nut shell.
its GREAT. its hilarious, plus full of music and cool choir nerd jokes that only the truly nerdy would understand.
i wish i could express how happy this show made me...maybe i can prove it to you by saying i immediately downloaded the single off of itunes?
i made me that happy. im so excited for the season to start in the fall!

life is grand

this is just my little blurb before i jet off to go to bed...yes bed, i have a cold which seems ironic since its very warm here...but such is life. hopefully i can sleep it away.
so as for my blurb on life:

i hate season finales...they stress me out. first private practice and then greys anatomy? i dont know how much drama i can take. especially when they leave you with cliff hangers like that. good grief.

also, i love kris allen. he fills me with an indescribable joy. he will go far. i hope he wins, just so i can laugh at adam lambert.

i leave for my trip on saturday! hooray for a real vacation, and fun. im stoked. actually, im beyond stoked.

i was working in the yard yesterday and guess what i found back there? my happy flowers, from this post. yes. it was joyous

and one last little thing: im excited for summer movies like this one. as well the obvious one like Harry Potter.

life is good. no, life is grand.

i had a swell weekend. i felt i should share

my dear roommate kym and i had been planning a trip to the hogle zoo all semester, so we figured that this past weekend would be perfect since i was still in logan. so the hogle zoo is what started this little adventure, but that was only the beginning...or middle...whichever

i drove down to our dear friend jennifer jones' house on friday for an evening of celebrating miss sara michelles 20th birthday. hooray! we laughed, we played, we watched the office, ate taco bell, and concluded the evening with the one and only hugh grant in notting hill

"im just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her..." classic.

the next morning we had breakfast with jen's awesome family, and then made our way from draper to holladay to the hogle zoo to meet kym and the giraffes. this day just so happened to be the day before mothers day, so the zoo was covered with moms and children of all ages. it was a huge deal actually, complete with "Mom and Me at the Zoo! Bring your child into the wild" t-shirts...yes i got one--partly because all proceeds go towards new exhibits, and partly because i wished my mom was there with me.

so we spent most of the morning/afternoon there, having fun and taking pictures. then sometime around 3 we all went our went our separate ways, except for me and katie...she was stuck with me for 2 more days.

we went mothers days shopping, drove up millcreek canyon, took a mini nap, and then went to a crazy bonfire! this was definitely a blast. the fire was HUGE and there were some really fun people too...not to mention a few cute boys ;) but they go to BYU...gross. So ya, this bonfire was like an hour away from katies, and lasted for a long time, but it was definitely worth it. :) So So fun!

(dont worry...thats just our delicious energy drinks)

sunday was mothers day, and i was sad all day long that i couldn't be with my mommy, but it definitely helped that i was with katie and her cute family, and not all alone in my apartment in logan. i also got to take katie over to meet my dotty! i was soooo happy i got to see dott and talk with her for a couple of hours and introduce her to katie. it definitely made the trip :)
then monday i had to leave by noon or so to make it back in time to get ready and go to work. but we didnt leave without first making a stop to MOLCASALSA. yummy! i then made the drive was hot, i have no AC, my ipod was dead, and i was DREADING another week in logan, but i will survive, only a couple days left and i can go home! and then bring on the ROAD TRIP!!!

turn to stone...ingrid michaelson

let's take a better look
beyond a story book
and learn our souls are all we own
before we turn to stone

let's go to sleep with clearer heads
and hearts too big to fit out beds
and maybe we won't feel so alone
before we turn to stone

and if you wait for someone else's hand
you will surely fall down
if you wait for someone else's hand
you'll fall, you'll fall

i know that i am nothing new
my words might not seem much to you
but brother how we must atone
before we turn to stone

listen to the song here...
Turn to Stone


"True learning
is learning something
you will
never forget."

the end.

Well...the semester is FINALLY over. I survived finals week, barely passing some classes, but passing none-the-less. In college C's get degrees! haha I never thought I would become that kind of a student, where as in high school I think I actually started crying if I got a C. Oh changes a person, for the better and the worse :) haha anyways, the main point of this post is just to say hallelujah! Bring on the summer fun! What a topsy-tirvy year it has been. Definitely some struggles, but definitely some fantastic times shared with basically the greatest people in the world. I cant believe my college career is flying by so fast, and that next year I will be a senior! Wow. I'm starting to feel old!
So as excited as I was for this semester to be over, it was the classes I just wanted to be done with. But along with classes ending, other things change too. I have been avoiding thinking about these things but now here they are staring my in the face. My Katie left me yesterday, and she isn't coming back..I mean she will visit me lots (she better) but shes not going to school here anymore. She has been such a blessing in my life, and it will be weird to not have her up here with me next year. But we truly are kindred spirits and just because she is going to the U, doesn't mean she can get rid of me that easy :P This semester is also the last one I get to be roommates with my dear Krenny-Poo. Mr. Dalen is taking her away from me to get married or something...haha I'm so excited for them and I know they will be eternally happy, its just weird for me I guess. I am also not going to be living in Old Farm anymore. 2 years here is plenty, seriously, plenty...but I'm moving to a foreign place, about 2 blocks down the street haha, but still, its kind of frightening. I will have 3 roommates that I have never met, and a whole new ward, everything. Its kind of a weird concept to me. But I just keep telling myself that adventures lie ahead. It will be grand, but frightening either way. Who knew the end of a semester could mark such change in my life?! Its both exciting and nerve-racking, but Bring it on I guess! Luckily I have the summer to prepare! :S
