i can't belive its over..the days were slipping past... the good things never last

i can't believe it.
summer is over and done for.
i feel like it just barely started, but here i am, living in salt lake, and starting my final semester of so-called "college." i will be honest, im a little broken hearted about not being back in logan. i miss it already, and im recently realizing how much im going to miss out on this semester! like the entire week of welcome, (which is by far my favorite time of the year), football games, basketball games, angies run, aggie ice cream, seeing the 'A' from pretty much anywhere i go, gorgeous logan weather, ...crap...im feeling a little homesick for good old logan! but i am putting faith in the fact that salt lake is where im supposed to be. its something new and exciting, and i think it will turn out to be a really fun semester.

oh did i mention, HELLO!!!?
yes i am in fact alive and well.
just have been internet-less for the past week or so.
quite tragic yes,
but luckily the qwest man i flirted with on the phone will have our internet up and running on sept 7th
hopefully i can make it another week...

i love my friends
the ones that really care, and are sincere and make you feel WORTH something.
the ones that love you no matter what,
and call just to see how you are doing,
and see how everything in your life going.
the ones that are indeed curious about every detail of you
and make it a point to tell you they care.
...thats what makes the world a better place...

i have high hopes for my new ward.
its new ward for me, with new people and in a new place,
and i keep praying that its a good place for me.
to meet people, and to make my semester here more enjoyable.
BUT, i have dedicated a section of my white board to keeping tally of the marriage talks.
seriously, we are already 1 for 1
and since its an 'older' ward, i feel there will be PLENTY.
ahhhh gotta love singles wards.

it for reals occurred to me today that im graduating in 3 1/2 months.
that means in 4 months i could be a real life teacher.
i mean, the odds of that happening are slim what with the crap economy, budget cuts, and the odds of finding a teaching job mid school year are next to impossible,
BUT the point is that im so close to being done.
its the weirdest feeling ever
mixed with massive amounts of fear and that wretched 'i want to throw up feeling'
but also extreme joy, and the idea that something i have wanted for so long,
and something i have been working for for so long is ALMOST here.
wow. can it really be real?
am i really filling out my educator licensing and certification application right now?
why yes. yes i am.

just so you know

im about 500% sure that i attend the most awkward singles branch in the world. seriously. im always in shock when i walk out the door. and then spend the next 5 minute drive home laughing my head off. if only you all could experience the awkwardness that is the northview branch...

i always. always. always dress according to what shoes i plan on wearing.
because thats really all that matters anyways...

i have recently been listening to classical music non stop.
i guess MUSIC 1010-Classical Appreciation
not only taught me to appreciate classical music,
but to absolutely love it more than i already did.
its a good thing college has taught me something.

i can honestly say that in the past week,
i have downloaded 2 backstreet boys songs
1 selena gomez song
and 1 jonas brothers song.
um...when did i turn 12 again?

i start student teaching in 29 days.
kinda scary.
but really exciting!
but also depressing because i walked through the school supply isle and felt totally bummed that i dont get to buy school supplies this year. totally getting jipped this semester...

i know i know, i have mentioned this dude plenty of times, but seriously. what is there not to love?
he just makes me happy.

i chuckle to myself every time i see the bouquet of roses on my dresser because:
1. they are yellow, and that reminds me of a quote in this movie.
2. i got them for my birthday from a 13 year old boy who is not my little brother :) ...which is another reason why i can say i have the best job ever

totally obsessed with john keats as of late.
i owe it all to bright star...fantastic.

2 weeks of playcamp left. 
which means only 4 free snowcones from snowcone man trevor.

love this: “true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not.”

just found out its shark week.
ahhhhhhhh i LOVE SHARK WEEK!

im shoving an entire semesters course into the next week and a half.
pray i dont hurt myself.

i really love sundays.
hope everyone has had a miraculous day!
