Bangs Anyone?


So I have been secretly debating on whether or not I wanted to get bangs. I thought about what I'd look like with bangs but I finally just said I'd do it and get bangs. I really like my bangs. I'm not used to them yet but I will eventually.

Weekend Birthday Bash!



So it was my roommate, Kaitlyn's birthday this weekend. We had asked her weeks in advance what she wanted to do for her birthday weekend. One of the things she said was to build a fort. So what did we do? We built a fort in our front lobby of the building. Do i have pictures? Yup. It was a very big success! It was very cozy in there! We fit about 10-12 people in there! I loved it! We *cough cough* watched Harry Potter 7 on Bianca's laptop in the fort while having birthday cake! (P.S. Tresa, I read your blog about Enoch and his fort! I want him to see the fort that we made!) and there is a video too of inside the fort!

Dream


Being at college you have the wonderful time where you have an hour or two break between classes. What's better than taking a nap before your next class?
So I took a 2 hour nap today which felt wonderful!
While I was sleeping, I had the most incredible dream!
I haven't had a dream like this for almost 2 years.
It was like Lehi's dream, but different. You know how he dreamed about the tree of life?
I had a similar dream but I won't tell you cause I don't know if I want to share with you it all.
Cool huh? Maybe I'll get more dreams like this soon!

Pranks

Yup. I suck at pranking my roommates.
I tried to prank my roommates into thinking I was engaged.
It did a 180 to where my roommates got a bunch of the girls from my building to throw me a fake bridal shower seeing how they knew that I was faking it all.
Kaitlyn told me she was engaged. Totally fell for it. Kudos to her.
As a result of pranking my roommates, Victoria and Bianca have "blocked" me from facebook. Lala is no longer my friend on facebook. Kaitlyn just laughed and didn't do anything on facebook knowing that she was going to prank me today.
Yup. I'm not going to prank my roommates anymore, maybe I'll join in on a prank but I won't prank my roommates by myself....EVER AGAIN!
The End.

Harry Potter Marathon!

So my roommates are beyond excited for the 7th Harry Potter movie Part 1 to come out in theaters this week. We are going to go see it this Saturday in Pleasant Grove They decided to decorate the apartment with Harry Potter sayings and pictures. We also decided that we should watch a Harry Potter movie a night starting Monday. So far we have watched the 1st and 2nd one and we're on the 3rd one tonight. Before I tell you this, I want people who are reading my blog to know that I will read them all eventually. With that saying, I haven't read the 7th book. I know a lot of things that happen in the 7th book because of my roommates. Anywho, I will read them over the summer or something. I know that I won't have time during school to read them. Here are some pictures that I took of our apartment for Harry Potter.

Nikki

So about a week ago, a girl who lives upstairs in my building got baptized. She had one of her best friends introduce her to the missionaries a month or so ago. She started taking discussions and started reading the book of mormon.

She then got more and more friendlier to other people in the building. Her friend Jana came to our apartment and introduced Nikki to us. I knew that her and I were going to be good friends when I first saw her. :) On November 8th She was her baptism day. She was so nervous. I had the privilege to be at the top of the stairs and watch her get baptized. My friend Regan baptized her. As soon as she walked up the stairs I wrapped a towel around her and hugged her saying how happy I was that she got baptized.

One of the amazing things that I love about the spirit is that it's always with you. I ran into Nikki today at the cafeteria and I could see that glowing spirit about her. :) I loved it! I've never seen her this happy. Here are some pictures of the baptism.

The Past 24 hours

In the past 24 hours I've become incredibly close to my Father in Heaven. This week I had been struggling with my brace. My brace wouldn't stay on for very long when I'm walking around campus. I finally figured out that my Snow College sweatpants do the trick to keeping my brace up for longer than normal.In the past 24 hours I've been pondering about my future and what will happen. I honestly don't know what will happen in my future. All I know is that if I trust in the lord with everything that I have, my life will be fine. I've been praying to heavenly father about many things which have caused me to become very emotional. I love my Heavenly Father for all that he's given me and I know that he will look after me in my times of need. I just need to take it one day at a time.In the past 24 hours I've been spending a lot of time with my roommates. I love them all so much. I wanted to be alone yesterday so I locked myself in the bathroom. Now my bathroom has 2 doors. One to the bathroom and one just for the toilet. I locked myself in the toilet room. I stayed in there for a good hour or so. Just thinking, crying, praying...whatever. I then heard my roommates asking me if I was okay. I told them that I just needed time to think. They then proceeded to hang out in the bathroom for a while. I didn't feel so alone anymore. They just sat in the bathroom talking and laughing. Kaitlyn, Victoria and Bianca I love you guys. Thank you for being patient with me.
In the past 24 hours I've talked to my mom. Things have been tough on me this week and for some odd reason I really missed my mom. I decided to call her and tell her everything that's going on. She really calmed me down about things and turned me toward my Heavenly Father. My mom is my best friend. I love her so much. I honestly don't know what I'd do without her right now in my life.

Dear Brace

The doctor told me that you need to be on my leg for about a month. You keep slipping. Please help me out a little and stay on my leg longer than 10 minutes. Please make this month a little less stressful. Thanks

Sincerely,
Me

Knee Problems

So about a week and a half ago I was in Aerobics and we were doing warm ups where we'd step onto the step and do kicks or knees or something. Anyway, I was doing that and my right knee suddenly popped. It was a very painful pop. I told the instructor what had happened and she told me to ice it for the next few days and stay off of it. I did just that and that weekend it was fine.

This past weekend didn't help at all. Because Bianca's car broke down, I had to drive and so I was driving for 2 hours using my right leg to drive and my knee started hurting again. Once we got to Salt Lake we went to the concert which was 3 hours of standing. Yup, my knee wasn't too happy with me. Saturday Kaitlyn did a photoshoot on Saltair where there was nothing to sit on but the ground which was salt so if I sat on the ground my jeans would turn white haha so once I got home I slept. Sunday at church, knee was acting up all day so I decided to go get it checked.

I went to the doctor today who was totally legit. Normally you'd see a guy walk in wearing tennis shoes, shirt and tie with a white coat on. The doctor that I went to came in with black boots, black pants, and a black cowboy button up shirt on. AWESOME! He was really nice. I told him what I just told you guys and he then proceeded to do weird things to my legs and knees. I would watch him then listen to what he'd say. He 'wiggled' my knees to check something and when he was checking my right leg he said "Hmm thats interesting" and I was like "what is it?" I was so afraid that i'd have to get surgery. He told me that I had torn my LCL and part of my MCL which is very rare apparently. Usually it takes quite a big accident to tear your MCL so I must've done something weird.

He told me that I have to be in a brace for a month or so. UGH! I'm not looking forward to it. He said that I can't go to aerobics for a month either. Don't know how that's gonna go down but I'll find out tomorrow. Here's a picture of my beautiful brace. :) I'm gonna hate it when my one month is up.

My Adventurous Weekend

This weekend was crazy but awesome all at the same time! Okay just to warn you all, this is going to be a long story but it's awesome!

Friday: I was done with classes by 11:30am and I pack my stuff for an awesome weekend of an amazing concert of Allred/He Is We/The Rocket Summer. I had made a shirt for the concert specifically for He Is We.
I am totally in love with them! My roommates have introduced me to them this year and I immediately fell in love. :) All my roommates are home and it's 3:30 when we leave. We're jamming out to music as we leave Nephi. We're on I-15 when Bianca tells us that Lala doesn't like her car cause it makes funny noises when it accelerates. Just as she said that her car (Barney) totally went up in smoke so we pulled over to see that the car was leaking oil. She called a tow truck because her car wouldn't start and the time was now 5:15. The tow truck guy named Brett (who is 23 and single. major flirtage) took us back to Nephi where we took the car to a repair shop. My good friend Trevor picked us up and took us back to Ephraim where we got my car (Sheela) and we were finally on our way. The time: 6:00pm.

We drive straight to salt lake where we hope and pray that the concert didn't start. We got to club sound where we found out that the concert didn't start til 8pm. Lucky for us, we got there at 8:10. BOOYA! We made it. T-shirt? Check! Money? Check! Cameras? Check! We were set. Allred was first and don't worry! I totally got a picture with him.
He Is We was AMAZING!!!!!!! Rachel was so much fun and she's so beautiful!! Trevor was incredible at the guitar. The End! Here are some pictures of them :) :) :)

The Rocket Summer! Bryce was so funny! He would talk in between songs and it would be like a 5 minute story but still very fun! He told this story about when he worked at Starbucks and how this guy would order a very specific drink and he would totally just mix random things together haha good times! He was sweating like NO OTHER though. Kinda gross but he was getting way into his songs!
Good concert over all! Love it! My roommates finally got to meet Josh (except for Victoria cause she was with family) I think they like him. :) We crashed at Bianca's place at like 2 in the morning. Super tired.

Saturday was a pretty awesome day. Kaitlyn did a photoshoot with 3 dancers for her final project in her photography class. We went out to Saltair where they danced. Here are some pictures.
After that we went to Pleasant Grove for Kaitlyn to do 2 more photoshoots. After the photoshoots we played around in some leaves before we went to meet Eric (Kaitlyn's future husband) He's so cute! I definitely approve Miss Kaitlyn! We then went to her house where we ate pizza and cookies. We then left for E-town a little while later. When we got back to the apartment, I just crashed. I was so tired from driving and staying up late and the concert. Good weekend though. :)

I'm not a big fan of yogurt but today was perfection in the yogurt world. I cannot wait til the finals breakfast. :) I always look forward to that and you always do an amazing job at it. Thanks again!

Sincerely,
Emily and her satisfied stomach

Letters

Here are some letters I'm feeling I should write today.
Dear November,
This time last year, it was snowing. So far, your doing a good job at delaying the snow. Please keep it up for as long as possible. Thanks!

Dear Snow Hall,
Why do barely tell us today that we have cleaning checks tomorrow night? That's not nice. I think you and I are fighting right now. Thanks for making me clean hard tonight and tomorrow when I really should be studying my guts out.
Dear Josh,
Hey you. :) Thank you for letting me vent to you about things that are happening in my life right now. You always seem to calm me down when I feel like I'm going to explode. I'm so glad that you and I are dating (kinda). I hope this lasts til I'm done with Snow. :) I can't wait til Friday so I can be with you while listening to He Is We LIVE!!

Dear Geography/Professor,
I am trying my very hardest to know the things that you are teaching me in class. I personally think your tests are too hard. Obviously most of the class is suffering because of the test scores. I really don't want to fail your class. I would rather not take the class again. I would rather try my very hardest and pass than not try and fail. (They don't get a picture because they are CURSING ME!!!)
Dear Roommates,
I am very excited for this week to be over with already. I know that you all wish the same. I also know that things happened this weekend that shouldn't have resulted this way. I know what you girls are doing and I'm not going to do the same thing you guys are. I am the Relief Society President and I have to set a good example. I'm not going to ignore her. I hope you girls understand.
Dear Bianca,
I have no idea if you'll even read this but I just wanted to tell you thank you for buying the casio! I am so excited to practice songs with you guys. I really hope I can get the music down with all the stuff going on. Now go get some sleep when you read this. You look so tired. :) It will make me happier when you get a little rest. k? Thanks for the shirt as well. I'm so excited to wear it on Friday! woot!

Dear Readers,
I am sorry this is forever long. I just needed to get this all out. If you have any advice or anything, please comment. Love you all!

Lazy Sundays

I love Sundays. Especially down here at Snow. Here's why.

1. I can stay up late on Saturday night because I can sleep in on Sunday.

2. Church (for me) doesn't start til 11:45am. So I have all morning to sleep, shower, and take my time getting ready for church.

3.When I do go to church, I have my RS meeting and ward council meetings which go til 12:45.

4. Church goes from 1 to 4.

5. Go home and eat an amazing meal with friends.

6. Feel the spirit all day and meet my home teachers (today)

I do love Sundays. They seem to be stress free all the time. I love it! :)

Dear Knee

Dear Knee,

You have been awesome to me my whole life. Yesterday, that changed. We went to aeroboics and you should be used to being used a lot more twice a week. When we were at aeroboics you decided to pop quite painfully while doing some kicks. Now I'm in pain today. Please heal quickly over the weekend. I would love you even more if that happened.

Sincerely,
Me

My Love-Hate Relationship with Fall



I love and hate the fall. Here are the reasons why for both.

Love: I love the fall because the leaves change color and you can get some incredible pictures if your in the right spot at the right time. :) The temperatures are cooler but not that cold...yet. Plus Halloween is in the fall. FREE CANDY! and Thanksgiving which is one of my favorite holidays. :) I love fall because of the crunchy leaves that are on the ground. I always like crushing the really crunchy leaves. It puts a smile on my face.

Hate: Summer is over. More storms come in like Snow and rain. I love the rain. but when Snow comes into play, I'm not a fan. It means that it's getting colder which is no bueno. I don't like cold weather. Thank heavens for blankets and layers. haha

Love,
Emily

P.S. - Can we be best friends?

General Conference Weekend

WOW! That's all I can say talking about the weekend as a whole. I think many people will agree with me.

Friday: I went home as soon as I could because I had a date later that afternoon. Don't worry, I got home in time. Josh picked me up at my house and met my dad. For those of you who know my dad, he likes to intimidate guys that come over to my house. Josh was perfectly fine with my dad! SHOCKER! He actually told me after we closed the front door that he thought my dad was a fun guy. I haven't heard that one yet. On our way to dinner I had no idea that this date would be one of the best dates I've ever been on. We went to Applebee's for dinner which was really good and we had good conversations. We then went Mini Golfing where Josh was cheating and taunting me that I wasn't going to win. Yep, he kicked my trash. He actually got a hole in one. (bravo!) We then went to his house where I met his parents. I know his mom because she cuts my hair. I never met his dad until that night. His dad is awesome! He was so fun and outgoing. Usually dads seem intimidated or are busy with things. Then Josh played the piano for me. My heart melted when he played Phantom of the Opera for me. He is amazing at playing the piano but he doesn't take the credit for himself. We then watched the movie "Up". Good movie. While we were watching the movie, he put his arm around me. My stomach suddenly filled with butterflies. After the movie he took me home and all weekend we've been texting. Thanks Josh :)

Saturday: Pretty much a lazy day. We watched General Conference which was EPIC! I loved Elder Holland's talk on Gratitude. It made me realize that I should say Thank You more often. I should be more grateful in my prayers. I also liked Elder Hales talk about Agency and what we should do with our agency that we have. Another favorite talk that I liked was President Eyring's talk on Trusting in the Lord and listening and acting upon the spirit when it talks to us. I love General Conference. It's refreshing to hear the word of the prophet and to use them in our daily lives. During the priesthood session, Mom and I went to dinner and we rented some movies to watch. We watched "The Last Song" and "When In Rome". My mom and I have come to the conclusion that we both can't stand Miley Cyrus's acting! IT DRIVES US CRAZY! When in Rome was actually pretty good. :) I liked it.

Sunday: We had Ethan over, like every Sunday, where we had a homecooked meal :) *sigh* boy did I miss home cooked meals! It was so delicious that I was happy all day! We invited Grandma and Grandpa over for dinner as well which was nice. I've missed them both so much! It was really good to just relax at home with my family. I hadn't been home for a month so a trip home was LONG overdue! Thanks to my wonderful mom for cooking meals for me along with making texas sheet cake for dessert :) I love going home!

Happily Ever After

Since I've been down here at Snow College, my amazing roommates have introduced me to this awesome band called "He Is We". They are originally from Tacoma, Washington. I have fallen in love with their music. They are going on tour this fall. Are they coming to Salt Lake City? YES! Are my roommates and I going to the concert? HECK YES! I am pretty excited about it all. They have a lot of good songs but they haven't released their first album out yet. One of my favorite songs is called "Happily Ever After" and here are the lyrics. If you want to listen to it just go to Youtube and type is "He is We - Happily Ever After" Enjoy!

Let me riddle you a ditty, it's just an itty bitty, little thing on my mind.
About a boy and a girl, trying to take on the world one kiss at a time.
Now the funny thing about, ain't a story without it, but the story is mine.
And I wish you could say, that it ended just fine.

We all want to know, how it ends.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

Inhale, breathe steady, exhale, like you're ready, if you're ready or not.
Just a boy and a girl trying to take on the world, and we want to get caught.
In the middle of a very happy ending, let's see what we've got, let's give it a shot.
Let's give it a shot.

We all want to know, how it ends.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

We all have a story to tell.
Whether we whisper or yell.
We all have a story, of adolescence and all it's glory.
We all have a story to tell.

Oh, happily ever after, wouldn't you know, wouldn't you know.
Oh, skip to the ending, who'd like to know, I'd like to know.
Author of the moment, can you tell me, do I end up, do I end up happy?

We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell.

My Week

this week has gone by really fast and really slow all at the same time.

Monday: I had classes and it was one of those days where you want to go back to sleep and not go to classes. We had FHE that night where we played laptag and missionary tag. :) fun times! My apartment also scored on 2 boxes of brownies. P.S. frozen brownies are the BEST!

Tuesday: This is the day where I started getting sick. UGH! It's never fun when your sick during school. I started coughing and sneezing. I had this cold all week ( still kind of do now but it's almost gone) My roommates and I do roller coaster Tuesdays. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, feel free to go to YouTube and look up "Roller Coaster Tuesdays Vol. 1" You will find it. :)

Wednesday: I did the radio today. It was lovely. I've decided that I like doing the radio. Sometimes I have no idea what to say on the air and I pretty much make it up as I go.

Thursday: We all had classes and I also had Aerobics which was half cardio and half Yoga. Yeah, I'm not very good at balancing but I think with time in this class, I'll get it down eventually. There was also a 50's dance in the Plaza in front of the new library. It was so much fun! There was a live band, my roommates randomly interviewed people about the dance and True Badger night that night. True Badger night. HAHAHAHA! My roommates decided to crash it by getting in Bianca's car and blasting "My First Kiss" in her car. Yeah it was pretty fun getting to ride along with them. :)

Friday: I went to the Manti Temple in the morning with my ward. It's so awesome going to the temple. I have been so bad at not going frequently. Hopefully this year I will be better at it. I love being able to just sit in the temple and ponder on things there and to feel the spirit. Even though I only had 2 classes, they were still very hard to get through seeing how I only had 5 and a half hours of sleep the night before. After my classes, guess what I did!? I took a 2 hours nap. :) It was GLORIOUS! Loved it. Later that night was the glow in the dark stomp. We got a bunch of glow sticks, poked holes in them and splattered it on our clothes! It was awesome! We went to the dance and just chilled for a while. It was fun just chilling. Not being in a mosh pit or anything like that. We then left the dance and just decorated t-shirts with glow in the dark paint while jamming out to music.

Saturday: It was an official lazy day. I slept in til noon. :) We basically chilled in the apartment all afternoon. We went to the General Relief Society Broadcast at the institute which was really good. I loved President Monson's talk on Charity and not judging. Other than that, thats basically my weekend. Good weekend.

I get to go home this coming weekend which makes me happy. I haven't been home for almost a month and it's going to be general conference! woot! I love general conference! Plus I miss my family. It's nice to be on your own but then there are those times where you miss your parents or your family. I've had that a few times this past month. Less than a week til I'm home. That's all for now! Hope to update soon!

Photo Shoot with Kaitlyn

So Kaitlyn and I have been talking about a photo shoot for me sometime soon and we've been talking about this for a while so this past weekend, we made it happen. Here are a few of my favorite photos that my amazing roommate took of me. P.S. you can see all of them on my Facebook page if you want to see them all. :)
