Sunday Funday! I got up early to go to Regional Conference. I looked SUPER cute today. i even curled my hair and schtuff 🙂 I picked up Mitchell early so we could actually get a parking spot and a good seat inside. It worked out and we got a close parking spot, it was awesome! When we went inside, we saved a row of 10 and only 5 people ended up sitting in it. For the first half of the conference, I was crocheting. It went quick and I finished the ball of yarn on a circular rug I am working on. The second half I listened a little bit but ended up drifting off while I had my head on Mitchell’s shoulder. Afterward I dropped him off, went home had some rice for lunch and hit the hay! I took a nice little nap after I read some articles from this last months Ensign. I read one about being a young adult and making these years count. It was a good kick in the pants to get my crap together and get busy serving others and making use of all my free time. But first I have to make time to do my laundry… I know that I had the feeling to read the Ensign on purpose. There was a little section in there about growing up and starting to make my own decisions and it was something I needed to hear. It was definitely an answer to a prayer that has been in my heart. I am grateful I could get some guidance today from conference and from the Ensign magazine. After my nap, Mitchell came over and we made a nice lunch. I made some potato chip-like things. I cut up potatoes in thin slices and baked them with garlic salt then put cheese on them after. They turned out well, surprisingly! After our lunch we watched Emperors New Groove and made some brownies! That was fun and later I Skyped with Mitchell’s family. That was fun, hearing their stories and fun stuff from their week. Later, at 11:30 we went back to my apartment and picked up some of my roomies and we went to McMidnight. McMidnight is a crazy anomaly that only happens in Rexburg. All the college kids go out after 12 t McD’s and it is packed! We only do this since it’s technically not the Sabbath anymore and we can buy food “legally”. It was fun and we had a good time. Everyone was vicious in trying to get a table! We had to box some people out and be aggressive to sit down at a booth, but we made it happen! Fun Sunday night 🙂
Slow Saturday today, but it was good. I finished up my Visual Media project and that went well. Dint have as many problems with slow saving or anything this time so that was good. After the project was posted and printed, I talked to my mom. We just talked about funny stuff I’ve been doing with my roommates and some other things. I like talking to my mom on the phone but sometimes I don’t totally know what to say, so I should work on that more..talking about her more. Because college kid life really isn’t too special! After that I went for a drive. I had been antsy toward the end of finishing my project and I wanted to explore and find a cool place nearby. I drove straight out of Rexburg past Sugar City, into Egin. I found a gravel road that goes for miles and is near the dunes. If only I had four wheel drive! I would mob out all the trails offshoots from the gravel road! It was tempting but my truck isn’t that meaty. I also had no service, no one knew where I was, and at the time I didn’t really even know where I was so that would have been a bad idea! Its amazing how dependant we are on our phones. I would have called someone to pick me up if I got stuck, I almost needed GPS to get out of there. Without service and communication, there was a possibility I would have been toast! I had to get back because it was date night with Mitchell and he already had tickets to McFarland. When we went and saw it, it was SO cute! I loved the movie. It was a great family movie and was just over all feel-good and nothing was inappropriate, which I really appreciate. It was a beautiful movie. We had snuck Taco Bell in also, so that was rebellious of us 🙂 Overall, had a nice relaxing slow Saturday and I enjoyed the evening with my cutie 🙂
Yay Friday! Not really… Creating and saving my cover pages on Photoshop for Interpersonal was a NIGHTMARE! I had fun making the collages and arranging them etc. in PS, BUT my computer was super slow! Most of my time was wasted waiting for the stupid thing to save the files to a PDF so that I could take them to the print shop. I was afraid it wasn’t going to happen before class. While I was waiting for the files to save, I went and “got ready” for the day. I am sad to admit that I am kind of a mess today. No makeup, no shower, no fashion whatsoever. It really could be worse, but I aint feelin’ fly today. I came back to the computer to check on the saved files and it was just taking forever! Finally they saved, i put them on a flash drive and went to AlphaGraphics. I made the guy print them twice on accident. It didn’t take too long for the whole process but I was slightly annoyed that I had made the process go longer. I wanted the pages to be double sided, different sides. He printed four pages at first and then I was going to make him laminate them but the pages would have shifted in the process. So he printed again and the pages were a clean double side with no lamination issues. Except that there is a really thick hair and a black speck laminated into the pages Next I trimmed them and left quickly. I drove home to pick up a few school things and ran out the door. I was only 10 minutes late and waked in on the prayer, but no biggie… Turns out the teacher didn’t even want the pages today. She said to keep them so she wouldn’t ruin them in transit for grading and such. She asked “Who brought theirs today?” and everyone raised their hand. Wow, I could have gotten away with half finishing them. I’m glad I got them done though. They are finished and have no problems and I am good! The rest of class was about listening styles and barriers. Still trying to work on being a better listener, even though I feel like I haven’t had too many opportunities. Now I have the rest of the weekend to do some more homework! It just never ends…
These are in no way professional at all! Just what I was working on. They’re cute and funny but they’re just for me haha
Tired. That’s what I am today. I fell asleep in both of my classes today. I guess my body is trying to tell me that 1:30 bedtime is not good! I got 8 hours of sleep but it wasn’t the usual 8 hours, so I think that’s what got me. I will be honest, I had a lot of free time today and I totally squandered it. I don’t even know what I did with it either! I did clean up my room, that was much needed, but other than that I don’t know what I did while I did nothing productive. After I got home from class at 6, I got down to work. I made my rough draft for my Visual Media project. It didn’t look too bad for just one hour of work! I went and did the critique with a girl from my class. We met in the Spori and talked over the projects. It went well but I always feel like my work looks plain compared to hers. She always has cute spunky fun ideas for her projects and I am envious of her creativity. After the critiques, Mitchell and I worked on homework in the lounge at his complex. I got a few things done and started my cover pages collage thing for Interpersonal. They are the cover pages for the portfolio we will compile at the end of the semester. I went home at 12 and continued working on my pages. I stayed up until 2 working on one page! I’m hoping I will be able to finish them tomorrow morning so I can print and laminate them in time for class… Wish me luck!
Today has been very productive for my physically.I had some good inspiration to go to the gym this morning. I laid awake for way too long last night looking at workout clips from some of my favorite Instagram fitness champions. I went to the gym in the morning and had a good lift session. I was surprised I had enough energy after staying up until 1:30! The workout included squats, Arnold press on exercise ball, one-arm rows, stretches, and dumbbell reverse flies. I was sore walking up and down stairs around campus today! After my workout, I got all cute and dressied up for devotional. I wore a necklace that my grandma gave to me for my birthday. It’s a cute necklace with big rhinestones, but I never know what to wear with it! I wore it with a light colored jean button up and my black tulle skirt. It was such a cute combo that I just threw together. After I was acceptably made up and dressed, I made my way to the MC for lunch with Mitchell. I brought with me my spinach salad, carrots, apple, and hard boiled egg. So healthy! Book of Mormon was after lunch, I actually enjoyed it this time. I love the Book of Mormon, but sometimes my teacher is not the most entertaining. He can be cryptic sometimes as well… After class I met with Mitchell for devo. Sister Stephens gave a great talk. I walked home afterward and now I’m typing this stuff up! Today has been healthy and productive 🙂 I am happy today. I just feel good.
I have been looking for good resources that can help me mix up my workouts and found a great site. Here it is http://www.bodybuilding.com/
Friday. Only one class today also! I hung out with Mitchell at Walmart before he left for Utah, that was fun… I was kinda bummed he was leaving for the weekend. But it’s ok, I’m usually alright across long distances temporarily. I went to my one class and got some other things done around the house. I finished up my project for Visual Media early. I was really happy about that! Usually I take all Saturday to get it finalized and printed but I got it all done on Friday. Later in the night, I called my cousin Sydney so we could hang out. I am so glad to have a great web of support here in Rexburg. I have good friends, and some family to help me through college. Sydney is one of those people! We laugh and always get goofy but we have fun and keep each other somewhat sane. We got snacks at Maverick, went to a basketball game for 5 seconds, left and then went to go spotlight people in the church parking lots. It was fun. Good, laid back Friday night.
Another great day! I made time for myself to go and workout and it went well. I went to devotional after my only class, Book of Mormon. Even though I didn’t get much out of it , I still felt uplifted and I had a feeling of spirituality. I felt like I wanted to read my scriptures more and just try harder overall. After devo, I went home and took a little break. I really wanted to avoid my homework and I didn’t really realize how much I actually had. While I was procrastinating, my roomies and I made our way over to this awesome Downeast Basics sale! We rummaged through the warehouse sale and I found a skirt, dress, and two shirts for only 17$. Score! After I had gone home from the warehouse sale madness, I got a call from my computer science tutor asking where I was for my appointment. I didn’t know I had an appointmnet! I rushed to get over to the Austin building with my computer and got there in a reasonable amount of time. I got a lot of stuff done in the appointment and another assignment for visual media after the appointment. It was 8:30 when I got home and I still had one more assignment to start. It was exhausting. Like I said before, I didn’t realize how much I had to do! I was glad that my tutor could contact me for my appointment. Technology is cool like that, it really helped me along. Communication is cool!
