Harry Potter Problem


It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, 1999, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore

Top Tens Reasons Why I apparently have a HP problem:


10. I tend to drift off in normal conversation to think about where I left off in the book...

9. Every time boyfriend offers to rent a movie I jump up and down and ask... "Can we get Harry Potter"...

8. I get excited when I hear anyone make a slight HP reference and shout " HA its not just me" ( guilty conscience I think)

7. In church when one of the speakers was talking about Jesus.. I leaned over to boyfriend and said... OH just like Dumbeldore...

6. When KLH was teaching she made a reference to HP and all the sudden every thing made much more sense.

5.The thought MAN Hogwarts would be way more exciting than UCF has crossed my mind.

4. I hide in my car on lunch breaks so no one will interrupt my HP reading time.

3. I bought tickets to got see HP7 last week.

2.I was overheard today having this discussion:

Brad: are you going to the movie tonight?
Me: DUHHHH
Brad: Sweet, I cant wait
Me: I LOVE HARRY POTTER
Brad: You secretly want to be Hermonie?
Me: PSHHH no Id want to be Ginny cause she gets to marry Harry
The discussion may have continued with an slight argument over who would be the coolest character to be/ date....
1.Me and the Abster MAY have been caught reciting spells and wishing they worked.... on more than one occasion

So I don't know if these really prove I have a problem... They seem totally normal to me but to the unHP fans I seem to be going overboard....

FiVE FRiDAY

FiVE THiNGS TO GET YOU CAUGHT UP
1. School is amazing.... could ask for anything better except maybe more hours in the day cause it sure takes up a lot of it!
2. I am trying to be more positive... I don't know why I have such a hard time with this lately I swear I am a happy person but these awful thoughts and mean words keep falling out of my mouth before I can stop them.... My new favorite phrase seems to be... sorry I'm TRYING not to be so negative :)
3. Work sucks.... It seems my infamous job is slowly sucking the life out of me... litterly can anyone say panic attack... cause I have been saying it quite often lately as I spend almost ALL my free time looking for new opportunities. BUT with the note of being more POSITIVE I have like 3 job interviews this week AND one internship interview :)
4. My credit card number got STOLEN!! That's right the number not the card who does that!!!! Some really clever thieves that's who, they don't even need my card to steal my money. Crasy Crasy CRASY. If only I didn't want to be an honest person I could be rich!
5. Scripture Study.... Me and Micah started a scripture study group on Sunday nights and it is the coolest thing! It is so nice to talk with my friends about Christ and his Gospel. All my friends know so much about so many different things. Its great to ask questions to people that understand!

FiVE THiNGS i AM LOOKiNG FORWARD TOO
1. ITS ALMOST TIME TO CARVE A PUMPKIN.... you probably already knew that one but it is one of my MOST favorite things in fall.... Its has taken all I have not to have already have 10 pumpkins with different expressions sitting on my front porch.
2. Thanksgiving.... EAT ALL DAY... how could you not look forward to this I mean really people. I truly do NOT know how I am not 500 pounds.
3. Reading my book... I'm a nerd its official I dream of sitting all day outside in the sun and reading a good book.
4. The COLD weather... I cant Wait till its chilly out and I take long Sunday "adventures" aka walking through the neighborhood sitting by the "lake" aka the retention pound. Oh and did I mention I get to wear my pretty pretty coat again... I love the cold!
5.New Opportunities... Enough said ;)

Sugar Fast

"Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.”Ernetine Ulmer
"When you look at a cupcake, you've got to smile." Anne Byrn
The other day my fellow Sarah suggested this wonderful idea.... A sugar fast. Sounds like a great idea right? A while month of no desserts or unnecessary sweets. A health cleanse from our sugar filled lives... Easy enough right. Well lest just list how the first 3 weeks have gone and you be the judge... Week one:
No sugar... we decide breakfast foods are OK aka pancakes and waffles here I come
Week 2
Abi eats a candy
I eat cookie from missionaries.. maybe two or thee... but they were made by the lords servants so doesn't count
I eat another cookie cause well I already failed this week
IHOP trip aka breakfast for dinner HELLO syrup
Week 3
Thought Id start it off strong with a good ol cupcake for lunch and Muffins for dinner
When I first heard the Idea I laughed and said "what would I eat then?" But slowly one by one all my friends joined the fast and yes eventually I gave in.... But only when I was told "You can NEVER do that!!".....Oh well cant win them all Guess Abi was right. Anyways one of the sisters suggested a fruits and veggie Binge... Maybe I can do that one. Epic fail on sugar fast 2010

Not So Blonde... Blonde

When I was little all I really wanted to be when I grew up was the little mirmaid... I used to think up much more socially acceptable answers like a docotr or an actress. But what my heart has always desired was to be just that... an underwater princess. So on that note I have taken a plunge into the dark side... Im seeing red that is... I have taken a break from my oh so blonde roots and gone red... Dont worry guys Ill be back to blonde soon just taking a break to be a little more like my idol.

My Love


So as I was walking the other night I realized that I have some pretty big expectations out of my life with no desire to get them. As I look at what those I look up to are accomplishing and have accomplished in their life I am coming to realize that I want more..... I want to find that thing that I can do and the thing that I will LOVE more than anything else...I have no idea what it is yet but I figured I could start with things that I know I love already.... and maybe these will lead me to what I am looking for...
But the number one thing that I love in my life is the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that he loves me and the closer I get to him the closer I will be to pure happiness in all that I do.

Creating an adventure


Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
~ Helen Keller


I don't want my life to be nothing so I am taking these wise words and making each day an adventure. Stepping out side of my comfort zone to create a life which is worth living. In relief society this week we went over President Uchtdorf talk Happiness, Your Heritage. He speaks about the desires of the human soul and our yearning to create. He says "Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty." This got me thinking how can I encompass my desire to make each day an adventure while following this advice. I am making goal today to create something each day whether it is an amazing artistic masterpiece (which I feel is highly unlikely) or a smile on some ones face (much more likely). I want to live like I am not afraid of who I am and help other people feel loved and happy and maybe the dark rain cloud over my head will go away. "The more you trust and rely upon the Spirit, the greater your capacity to create. That is your opportunity in this life and your destiny in the life to come." Heavenly Father wants me to be happy and created me so that I can be that way and that I can one day create like him. I can not wait to see what this life has instore for me =]

Life's tough get a helmet!!




Life gets harder the older we get. It is inevitable, I am figuring out. I know I have said this in like every blog post but this past couple of months have been quite intense. But no matter how tough it has gotten I have had a few friend who have made it all bearable.
Ashley has been through thick and thin with me and pretty much knows me better than any one on this earth. When I cry she cries when shes sad I am sad. I dont know anyone else who I can laugh so hard that I cry, almost die, then laugh and get so serious only to laugh again two seconds later.... all the while completely understand the whole ordeal.... and trying to smell her jacket. I wish I lived closer to her I miss being able to see her everyday of life.

Jackie is so far away but one of my favorite people. I remember one time her Mom said to me... "It doesnt matter if you ever see each other again you are sisters and will live together for eternity one day" It just reminded me how much our short times together have changed my life. You have such a great view of the world and get me no matter how long it has been since our last visit. We pick up right where we left off. Not a one has come close to being that influential in such a short amount of time. I charish our moments and know that there will be PLENTY more to come because we will have all eternity to be sisters.

Lindsey all though I live farther away and dont get home as much as I should she has brightened my life by being there when ever I need her. I am sorry that I am not there for her as much as I should be but I hope she knows that she is and always will be my best friend.... plus I have never been able to convince another soul that there was another world in my closet or that the beany babies come alive when your back is turned.

Ryan, ups and downs, break ups and make ups he has turned in to one of my best friends. He has been in my life longer than anyone who isnt family, although he doesnt quite remember a lot of it he likes to pretend though.... He is always the first to offer help when I want it and jump in and help when I need it (but dont want it).

Shelly, Danny,Christie, and Tim have all made my college life better. I know at times I can be a real pain but they all stick with me. I have been with Shelly before she dropped the MI and added the Y and I know that She will always be right down the road when I need her. Danny has made my house not so lonely on days when you just want to be lonely. I thank him every day for his random drop ins not allowing me to cry more than necessary by feeding Mac and cheese till I almost exploded. Christie is always so willing to do what it takes to make me smile she is the most caring roommate ever I couldnt have gotten more lucky. And last but oh so not least Tim can make me laugh when no one else in the world can. Its great to have a friend that lasts and he is one of the few who can withstand times test.

Amy and Raul, my newest additions and a pretty vital part I laugh like I never have with you.... Booty dancing and church you make my life good all around I cant wait for more great times together.

Casey so much to say but none of it would do him justice. Miss him more than life and wish he was here/

And Finally (I know this is so long ) Micah, he makes me smile and I like it.... which is all im gonna say about that ;]

Thanks so much for all of my amazing friends who love me and get me threw lifes crazy times! They are my helmet in this crazy world!

Keeping the Faith in Jeans and a Vest

The other night I was talking with a friend about the past couple of months and how crazy they have been. I recapped the stress and tears and all that other crazy stuff that constitutes life as a college student and my seemingly new found confusion towards life. Lately I have had such a mental block when I try to figure out my future. What to do with school and work and church and romance... it all seems so impossible to figure out. How do you keep going on when it seems to much..... Now in situations like this people tend to turn to typical answers like God answers prayers... or things will work out... or you will know what to do when the time comes but what did this great boy do... He grabbed my computer and put on Bon Jovi... long hair vest wearing Bon Jovi... Keep the Faith... the music video. Oh how it made my night. I guess the message of the song was similar to all of those listed above but the delivery was a thousand times better. Who doesnt love laughing at guys with bad hair and a friend singing to you when you are down. it made my night =]... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZQyVUTcpM4

Good Times with Good Friends




So last night we had a Jersey Shore party... for those of you who don't know what that is... it involves big hair, loud mouths, crazy dance moves and little clothing. Jersey Shore is this ridiculous reality show that plays on MTV. It is a house full of Italians that love to fist pump and tan, and for some reason my friends fell in love. It was so much fun we all looked so silly. I tried to dye my hair for the night but it really only turned out slightly less blonde. Thankfully the stuff washed out....

Hello 2010

GOODBYE 2009 HELLO 2010!


This year has began with quite a BANG! With an amazing eye opening trip so see two of my favorite people... one of which is now a married woman I realized how crazy this past year has truely been .As I look back at this past year I realize how much I have learned. I never could have imagined I would end up where I am today with these experiences and lessons. I have learned that people in general will come and go through out life. Sometimes its sad, sometimes its unexpected, sometimes its bad and sometimes it is a VERY good thing. The ones that are important will always come back even if it takes years but they are usually worth the wait. I have realized that people are going let me down and I, in return will let others down. I know that through these let downs we get to grow and adapt. With out dispointments we could understand how uterly amazing it is when some one comes through for us. I know I have disapointed a lot of people this past year but sometimes we have to let others down to figure out whats best for us in the long run. I have learned excatly what I DONT want out of life which I hope will eventually lead to me knowing what I DO want.... But then agian I am a woman so who knows if Ill ever get there.... I might have an Incling of who I want to spend it with though =] But before I start rambling the most important thing is thatI have a stronger knowlege today that God lives and knows me better than anyone ever will and not only knows me but loves me too. No matter how stupid I get or how far I fall He is waiting for me to pick myself up and come back to him and I couldnt ask for anything better.


PS These are some pictures of my amazing trip to MIAMI =]
