its thursday morning, 1:40 a.m., and all is well.
not sure what it is about this week... i was fully prepared to come back emo and depressed after spending a week in glorious las vegas. (i mean, come on. who wants to go from VEGAS to PROVO? talk about down-grade) but guess what? i'm not emo or depressed.
-maybe its because i just finished my last paper like five minutes ago, meaning i wont have to write another one until next semester!
-maybe its because i got my vegas fix in for a few weeks
-maybe its the warm feeling i get inside when i think about going to american heritage lecture TWO more times!! thats it!!
-maybe its because i was actually social for once tonight. i went and played rockband with a bunch of people from my ward. it felt good because 1) i loooove rockband and 2) i looooove talking to people. (i knew all of those hours playing in high school would not go wasted. i impressed a lot of people tonight with my expertise)
-maybe its the fact that NEXT THURSDAY (exactly one week from this very moment) will be my last day of classes for this semester
-maybe its because i got to spend five nights in a comfortable bed last week
-maybe its because the christmas decorations alllll over campus. including my very own taylor hall :) tonight floor council strung christmas lights all along the floor ceiling. pretty.
-maybe its the fact that i can wear all of my nordstrom coats now because its cold as shi- outside
-maybe its because a friend problem got resolved last week when i was home :) i feel like a weight has been taken off my chest!
-maybe its because i got to see afton WAY more than expected last week. I. LOVE. HER. like honestly.... can i have a baby?! ahahaha. she loves me. she cried when i tried to hand her off to someone else.
i woke up to her in my bed on thanksgiving morning hahahha. weird family. so naturally, i had to take pictures. she is so stinking cute.
-maybe its because subway has a new menu item.. chicken cordon bleu melt! holy crap. heaven.
-maybe its because i feel better about next semester. i think i have my classes the way i want them, and every time i think about getting into the elementary ed program i want to freaking jump! i am so excited to be a teacher. a couple weeks ago, i was SO down and discouraged because i'm failing like everything and i was so overwhelmed with life and school and then i went to this el ed seminar... and it got me all pumped up again. i just need to focus.
-maybe its because i came back to provo with a package and a letter awaiting for me! i love love love getting mail. it easily makes any day better. (hint hint) (haha just kidding) (okay but really)
-MAYBE its because my parents got a new mac and i am so excited for them, and i am even more excited about the fact that we can SKYPE now!! i came home sunday night, and i've already had two skype sessions with the fam. maybe if i knew i would love skyping with them this much, i would have donated some serious money to their mac fund.
i love this picture.. we look like sisters huh? i love her.
basically. i'm happy. dont know why... because its FREEZING and i should be stressed out of my mind with finals... but... i dont know. haha. its all good. i get to go home in 16 days! cross your fingers for me and my final exams :) at least i know i'll get an A in my biology lab... stupid bacteria
