Why I go to college

In class today we talked about personal finance. Investment was a big topic. It was brought up right at the end that ladies should not rely on their husband and not be able to support themselves. He told of someone that holds a respectable calling in the church that is cheating on his wife. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? If I was the wife, I am pretty sure he would not be able to walk and/or have kids ever again in this life! But the point was made that we, women, should be able to support ourselves if the time comes. One of my biggest pet peeves is to hear that a girl is here at BYU just to find a husband. Why spend thousands of dollars if you are not going to use it? And what happens if your hubby isn't who is was when you were married. I am not about to sit back and let myself be walked on in that situation. I am a strong believer that you should not be totally dependent on any human because they are faulty and do not follow through with everything they say they will. Well, there is my cynical side for you!

In high school my friends would love to go coning! You take a construction cone and put it on someones lawn. Well last semester I "borrowed" a BYU police cone and had it in my trunk. Friday night me, brittani and beth decided to make use of it! It was a spontaneous activity, which i love more than anything. We coned good old Josh! I was way into, maybe a little bit more than the others. If we weren't on asphalt i would have done a 007 roll. We were putting the cone in front of his apartment and we forgot to be quiet. We knew he was not home, but his roommates were. Needless to say Rob opened the door and I screamed like a little girl, jumped up and started running down the hall (i saw taken earlier that day so I blame the jumpiness on that)

What to do in Provo

There are many times I ask myself what the crap is there to do in Utah? Well, it seems every time I always end up finding something to do. 
Valentine's weekend was a fun filled weekend, which included a no-boys-allowed tent! 

Ben Kweller Concert at the Depot in Salt Lake. I love hanging out with my Marylanders :) It makes me so happy. 

 Hot tubbing with the girl's on valentine's day <3 
Tent and movie came afterwards. I normally hate valentine's day, but it was so amazing to spend it with friends and just act stupid, and be a girl!!! 
Imagine this: its sunday after church and its naptime, you start to think about sleeping in your bed, but just then you remember... you have a fort in your living room calling your name. Needless to say, my favorite sunday naps are the ones in my forts! 

I strongly believe in the whole rest on sundays because when else do you get to just lounge around, be with friends, have no worries in the world, and know that its what you are suppose to do on that day and you don't feel bad about neglecting your homework. But once you have to think about mon., it starts to go down hill :(

This weekend, will be just as much fun, and more to come later!

So Grateful

This week at work we have a group called "Ski for Light" and many of them are blind, disabled and some are even blind and deaf. I cannot begin to tell you how eye opening this week has been for me. No matter how stressed, angry, sad, depressed or anything other not happy emotion, I still have all 5 of my basic senses. But even with there disadvantages, on the whole they are some of the nicest people I have met. You can imagine how they can be bitter towards life, but they are not. They embrace it, they GO SKIING!!!! I don't even do that! It is wonderful to see the strengths that some people have.

On another note, I can't wait for them to leave. I work tonight, tomorrow morning, tomorrow night till 11 and then Sunday morning at 3AM!!! AHHH its crazy. But all in all it is wonderful.

I am grateful for seeing so many sights... these are two of my favorites... Sunset, Number 1 time!!!!!

Lightning Storms, Utah does not have them, but Maryland, oh so wonderful!

So I will admit, I found out about this by eavesdropping on someone else's conversation yesterday, but the phrase "Why Mormon Girls Stay Single" is going to catch, a single mormons attention! So I went to look at it, and I personally found it entertaining. My roommates didn't like it too much. 
They use church acronyms... and I can't figure out two of them so if someone knows them, please let me know... C.S.L. and W.M.L.
