Somebody I Used To Know

Sometimes I wonder, is it harder to want someone there that you know you could have had if you hadn't messed up? Or is it harder to want someone you can't have? This song reminds me of this. I love this song and video.

bean burritos and casseroles

Since school and finals are now over, I have settled back into my home sweet home, and begun work. If there is one thing I have learned in the last week it is this: do not forget to take advantage of the time you have with those you love, because before you know it you and they will be moving on. It can be a sad thing to realize, but still, it can be a beautiful moment when you realize that you are where you are supposed to be. I am a Latter-day Saint, and I am a firm believer that each individual has been sent to this earth to accomplish a specific task, nobody is sent here by mere circumstance or accident. So to all my readers, I give this one suggestion: Find your purpose, and it will be at that point that it won't be so hard to move on, because you will know you are moving on for a bigger and better purpose. 
here is a song I quite like (I very much love the Glee music)

That thing called FINALS

My best friend is a poet, and I am not. But still, I attempt to create some sort of semblance of a poem. This week is Finals week and I have attempted to create a poem in honor of this great week.

Finals, they make me want to scream.
really all I want is some ice cream,
and to lay out in the sun,
and roast some buns.
instead, i'm forced to study,
with my buddy,
to ace that test,
so my dad will think I did my best. 

Hope you enjoy this and it makes you chuckle a little.

This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity of traveling home to the great state of Utah, and visit Zions National Park. Surprisingly, it was beautiful weather, and hopefully I got a little tan :) We were able to hike Angel's Landing, which is approximately 3 miles one way (by the time we finished it felt like we had hiked about a million miles). The hike takes you up the side of a mountain, and you gain approx a thousand feet in elevation (give or take a few feet). This hike is not for the simple minded, or the weak spirited, but if you do make it your are able to see the beautiful scenery of Zions National Park from one of its highest elevations. One of the funniest parts of the hike was the very last part, where you go up about ten switchbacks, which are all covered in ice... let's just say it can be really fun to watch people slip and slide their way up and down :) The next time you are in the Southern Utah area, don't miss out on visiting what is my favorite national park :)

Perpetual State of Band Aids

As you know, I have been in college for almost a month, and oh my the time has flied! But ever since I have gotten here I have found that my right knee ALWAYS has a band-aid on it. There are many reasons for this constant state:
1) I always cut myself shaving on the right knee.
2) I am always running into walls, and it seems my knee always takes the pun.
3) I fall constantly. Somehow I manage to slip on the only patch of ice (which just happens to be 6 inches in diameter) and skin my knee.
Since I constantly have a band-aid on my right knee, I have found that plastic band-aids are no good. They fall off all the time, that is why it is the flexible fabric I can trust :)
So I found this poem on band-aids, since I am no good at writing at poetry (I leave that to my best friend)

Bernina's Band-Aids

Bernina had a Band-Aid
on her elbow and her chin,
her ankles, knees and forehead,
plus her shoulder and her shin.

Another two were on her ears
and ten were on her toes.
She'd one on every finger
and a big one on her nose.

Her Band-Aids were the coolest
that her friends had ever seen.
A few of them had leopard spots
and some were neon green.

A bunch were lit with lightning bolts,
or stars and crescent moons,
while some had superheroes
from the Saturday cartoons.

Bernina's now in trouble
for there's just one little catch;
she used up all the Band-Aids
but she didn't have a scratch.

Weird Obsessions

Being a college student, I have found that there are a few things that bring me great happiness! Here is a list of some of these:
1. Long naps, because they allow me to sleep and dream about amazing things :)
2. Baking cookies with my best friend.
3. Stepping on the snow, and listening to the crunch of it under my feet, I don't know why, but it just brings me great joy :)
4. Getting mail from my parents (especially if it is an easy bake oven). 
5. Youtube of course!! As a college student, I do have my favorite video which always gives me a good laugh, check it out :) 
Just remember, life is great, and there are always new opportunities lurking around each corner :)

We are off! To see the frozen tundra!

In honor of me venturing back up to Rexburg, Idaho to attend my fifth semester at BYU-Idaho, I figured it would be good to write a little poem which goes a little somethin like this:
Rexburg is like an iceberg.
It is full of nice nerds.
But not so many birds.
This poem is not very great,
but it's getting kinda late.
I feel that I should close the gate,
and let this poem wait,
before I get irate.

This is how Rexburg sometimes make me feel, but, non-the-less, I am still excited to return to the beloved frozen tundra which I claim as my second home.
