weekend at home!

This past weekend i requested work off so i could go home for a few days. wow. best decision i have ever made. i drove up saturday morning and came back tuesday night. whoopsie.. i did happen to miss a few classes but ya know what? it was well worth it! 

I spent pretty much my whole weekend with this lovely girl. Meet one of my best friends Lori Brooke Richards. I knew she would be coming down from USU for her brothers homecoming so that pretty much convinced me that i should head up to home also. We hadn't seen each other since august so it was a much needed weekend of catch up! i love this girl seriously. we had so much fun and i wish she werent so frickin far away. boo.

Me and brooke officially met around seventh or eighth grade. Her brother TJ and my brother chandler were really good friends and so her family invited us up to their cabin one weekend. I'll admit it. We did not "hit it off"' as some would like to say. But we just didn't know each other too well and we were put in a semi awkward situation. Anyway we then were SBO's in Middle School together. Again. Didn't hit it off. It took some time.. but finally around my junior year we were again on student government together. and this time we did start chatting and becoming friends. Welp talk about a crazy situation but then.. we starting dating Ben and Carson around the same time.. who were also best friends. and well, we have been tight ever since. The rest is history. i love this girl. she truly is the best.

And up next...

Now meet jess. Me and Jess have been friends since sophomore year. we met when we were like 12 at a byu soccer camp.. where me and my friend lexi tortured her and her roommate. Me and lex had them convinced that we could speak our own language. ohh the joys of being a 12 year old. We stayed friends all through high school and have even gotten closer since we graduated. i am soo grateful i have this girl in my life. she is an awesome example of love and forgiveness. She is one of a kind and i know i can always count on her! 
i had the best weekend. i loved spending time with my family and catching up with friends, siblings, and parents. it was awesome. i loved it and cant wait to come home for good in december!

He is aware of our worries, wants, and needs.
He never ceases to amaze me...

Wow. i am soo greatful for this gospel. Awesome day. Great end to a long journey. :)

Pow.. pow.. Powderrr puff! EXPLICIT.. SORRY!!

I am super far behind on my blogging skills lately. So gradually i will catch back up. A few weeks ago it was Homecoming week down here at dixie.. which was so fun! there were tonz of fun activities and stuff to do all the time... well thursday night was the traditional powderpuff game. Freshmen/Seniors vs. Sophomores/Juniors. and.... well we won :) That's right! i played decently but there was this huge black "woman" on my side... and every time i got the ball i had to dodge this "Chick". Honestly. this "girl" scared me. Seriously she was plain scary. Where did she come from? i have no idea.

But i think the funniest part of the game was watching the other team.. (I have to admit.. Our team definitely had the upper hand.. actual football players as coaches.. and girls that actually had some athletic ability. ...Oh besides that black "chick" on the other team) So going into the game i knew that the game was going to get interesting. 

I cant even tell you.. there was a girl on the other team.. Forgive me here as i say this.. but she was one of those girls who.. 1. reads her text books for fun. 2. felt soo cool playing powderpuff because it was her time to "shine" in front of hundreds of people. and 3. also felt way special because her face was painted like Darth Maul in star wars (no i am not kidding) and instead of having a number on the back of her jersey she had an "X". Yuppp she was one of those. Oh and did i mention that she thought she was so totally awesome when she would argue with the refs or "talk Smack". hahah seriously i was dying laughing on the field every time i looked at this girl. it was hilarious.

Ok story time.. (this is where it may get explicit...)
First off.. let me say all of these girls on the field thought it was so cool to call each other Bitches. Why? i dont know? even after playing soccer for lots of years.. i can honestly say i have only been called that maybe like three or four times on the soccer field. But in this one powderpuff game.. i seriously probably heard this word over a hundred times. Girls were saying it left and right.. Maybe i am wrong here.. but i think these girls thought they were like way HARD CORE or something? i mean we were playing football so that automatically makes you a B.A right?

Well back to my girl Darth Maul. Me, being the sarcastic brat that i am, (When i play sports i just keep my mouth shut.. i dont talk to the other team unless necessary..) well..finally after pretty much the whole game started referring to her as Darth Maul on the field. I think this made the other team even more mad.. I mean we were already beating them pretty bad, and they were already freaking out at my team.. so why not egg on the problem a little more? Obviously it was more just for my own entertainment than anything. Well on one certain play i lined up and under my breath i said "Opp we got Darth Maul here.." (this girl was yelling telling her team they needed to "step it up!!".. i honestly didnt think anyone heard me until my team started laughing. oh geez bad idea. I dont really remember what happened on this play, but for some reason it was controversial. so of course Darth Maul had to put in her two cents. i dont think i said anything..maybe someone else did on my team, but the next thing i heard was seriously the funniest thing in my life. It was a high pitched yell that was definitely trying way too hard to sound seriously mad.. All Darth Maul yelled was .."If you can't handle it get off the field bitchessss". haha it was more of a Beeetchess than bitches, but nevertheless it was one of the funniest things i have ever heard. and she kept repeating it! over and over again. I think she was frustrated?

If i forget everything about the game but remember that one sentence.. it will make every bit of the game worth it. sooo funny. and i think it was only because it was "Darth Maul" that said it. I have also now become a fan of Star Wars!

ok ok i am sorryyyy

sorry for the lack of enthusiasm in my last post. i usually dont get in such downer moods.. but sometimes i think they are just needed! so... please excuse my orneriness.

Sorry for using some PG-13 type stuff in my last few blogs. Dont think of me differently. Seriously i just wanna share my funny experiences with you guys.. so if you are offended... i am DEEPLY sorry.

Welp this week has just sucked. plain and simple. But... i do get to go home this weekend.. and boy oh boy i can hardly wait!!!

cuz ya had a bad day...

Today has been a downer to say the least. this song describes exactly how i feel..

The stars lean down to kiss you,
And I lie awake I miss you.
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly, 
But I'll miss your arms around me.
I'd send a postcard to you dear, 
'Cause I wish you were here.

I watch the night turn light blue.
But it's not the same without you, 
Because it takes two to whisper quietly, 
The silence isn't so bad, 
Till I look at my hands and feel sad, 
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly.

I'll find repose in new ways, 
Though I haven't slept in two days, 
'Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone.
But drenched in Vanilla twilight, 
I'll sit on the front porch all night, 
Waist deep in thought because when I think of you.
I don't feel so alone.
I don't feel so alone.
I don't feel so alone.

As many times as I blink I'll think of you... tonight.
I'll think of you tonight.

When violet eyes get brighter, 
And heavy wings grow lighter, 
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again.
And I'll forget the world that I knew, 
But I swear I won't forget you, 
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past, 
I'd whisper in your ear, 
Oh darling I wish you were here.

Yes... Darling i wish you were here.. i have a feeling you would be the one person to make me feel better right now.

The Dark Room--- WARNING! this post may get explicit.

so this semester i thought it would be fun to take an art class.. after much debate i decided on black and white film photography. ohhhh man i did not know what i was getting myself into. This class is probably by far the class i stress out over the most... how PATHETIC! my dang camera is like 100 years old and so confusing to use. but needless to say i have learned a whole lot about photography that i never ever knew. Oh and did i mention.. This class is every Tuesday night from 8:00 to 10:20Yeah i dont know what drug i was on when i signed up for it.. cuz it is horrible timing every week.

This however, was not the reason for my post. Last week was our first week in the Dark Room. I never realized just how dark it really gets in there. PITCH BLACK.  And,well, seeming that the class is so late at night.. we have A LOT of young, married college couples in my class. I never really thought it was a big deal... until now.

.. this is about how my class went that night..

Lets talk about.. weird sounds. (puckering... smacking.. movement/removal of clothing..). lots of ear whispering. soooo creepy. You guys probably all think i am kidding.. but i'm not. not at all. One girl even made a comment.."we should turn on the lights cuz it would be so funny to see what people are doing." (she must have been thinking the same things as i was..) and well the whole idea of turning on the lights got shot down very quickly by MANY people in the class. Gross. disgusting. perverted. i never knew people had these weird fantasies about hooking up in a photography dark room.. because seriously that seems to be the only reason they are in the class.

All i have to say is.. when i get married i am not signing up for an 8:00 night class with my husband. I am sure we will have other things to be doing at that time of night.. and well... we will save that for our house and NOT the classroom!! sheesh! ahhaha
