Update on recent thoughts

Not like it matters, but I just realized that they dont have my font on here!!! :( hahaha sucks to my asthma I guess.
Well anyways! Life has been really weird lately. I feel like I've taken a step sideways instead of forward or backward. It's an alternate in Lost....hahaha (I had to make a Lost connection to my life ). I'm not going to school right now, just working...and I recently got offered whats called temporary full time. So I'll be able to work for full time for a number of months but then I have to take a whole month off to make up for it. I was offered full time for when I come back to work, too, if there are enough kids at the preschool. It's really exciting! and it means that I'll be able to pay for school without taking out any loans or asking for help or anything, but it also means that I'll have to hold school of for another year or so......This is my new thought process, to continue working until the summer of 2011 and then go back to school that fall. I dont know if I'll stay in Boise or leave town, but if I stay, I'll probably continue to work part time at JFK. Well, anyways, my present problem is what am I going to do for the whole month I have off this summer?! My first thought was (you'll like this) to go to Florida so I could go to this thing called The Magical World of Harry Potter :). It's in Islands of Adventure and my favorite Harry Potter podcast, Mugglecast, is going to be there the first weekend I have off! I want to go so badly! But here's the bad part.....I dont have anyone to go with!  Danielle Soelberg and Jacqueline Dustin would be my first choices, but Jacqueline is getting married like three months before hand and Yellee probably wouldnt be interested spending a weekend with someone she gets annoyed with so easily at a place where memories arent the greatest. :( it sucks not having a social life.  Well.....maybe I should ask Danielle first? hahaha lets just hope she's not going to have a surprise marriage that day or something....that would definatly suck and ruin all my plans......
Well, besides that! I got a haircut this previous monday! I really like it but nobody else seems to. Especially not my preschoolers. And Krista. I keep thinking it's just something they have to warm up to....but it's been a whole week! haha the only complements I got on it from any of them was the day I pulled my hair up. hahaha . It's short and it makes me look like a mom if I dont style it, but when  it's all done, I think it looks really cute! Well, all stares put aside, I think I look hott.....and younger! (even though I'm only 20)
Next order of business! I cant think of anything.....hahahah I had a dream the other night that I was standing around talking with some of my friends and next to us this girl was getting hypnotized and my friends and I were being weird lik e we usually do and I pretended to be a chicken and the hypnotized girl ATTACKED ME! no joke. I have weird dreams. AND THEN! get this, haha I was running away from the hypnotized girl and I went into this room that turned into one of my old apartmens (kind of.....different layout....more welcoming) and there was this guy standing there. He was like, "There you are! I was wondering when you'd show up!" and he gave me this huge  hug and he just held on. I usually would be really weirded out by that; hugs from strangers, even friends are awkward, but I was really comfortable and relaxed. haha so yeah, as you probably guessed, this guy was my bf in this dream, and he was really good looking too! And then some of my friends, even though I didnt recognize their faces, came in and we were about to go somewhere. haha and that was it. weird, huh? But I remember waking up from the dream and hoping that would come true. hahah it's probably me just being hopeful because I want friends and a boyfriend, but you know, Elizabeth had a dream about her man before she even met him.....hahaha ok ok not likely, but I like to dream.
ok, well I've got a whole Saturday of things to do (not really) so....until next time!

K, so it's been like....three months since I've updated on my life. Really nothing much to update on....but whatev, here it goes.

:) so lets see here....starting from where I left off. Harry Potter was the most awesome movie of the summer!! haha and Natalie was actually a fun companion. This movie is definately going on my christmas list....well all harry potter movies go on my christmas list but this one definately does! Ummm Maria's wedding reception was so cute! and it was great to see them again! I felt really awkward though....I mean I got to talk to them for the first like three minutes but then they had to go around and talk to other guests and I was left standing all by myself.....meh :( I really wish I had brought someone with me....the only problem is there was really no one to bring. Stupid single life. But yeah, my time there was short but it was nice. Earlier that day I got to go hang out with Jacqueline and Tiffany....mostly Tiffany though. Jacqueline had to work. So we went out to lunch and then Tiffany and I went to goof off at the sand the summer....oh man I can feel my feet burning now!!! It was fun to see them again. I'm sad I'm not in Rexburg now. Fall is the best time to be there in my opinion. NEXT YEAR! In the meantime I'm still working. I finished out the summer at Grace Jordan and then moved to the preschool at Trailwind. I LOVE IT!! my preschoolers are amazing! I'm working by myself again but it's so much more enjoyable. I have up to ten kids a day and they are so wonderful. They are loving and forgiving and optomistic....I love preschoolers :) But thats basically it right now. I'm chillin in Boise and hoping to go and visit my Rexburg friends soon!

ummm, oh so my purse got stolen a couple weeks ago. brand new purse....about $550 worth of stuff inside....all my id and junk. It pretty much ruined me for a while, but things are finally turning around for the better.

Hahaha, so Tiffany and maybe Jacqueline will appriciate this. I'm playing a Kingdom Hearts marathon with my brother. we're playing all games, one through two :) hahaha so in total, four games. We are almost done with the first :) It's such a fun game! It's one of my fanatical lost and harry potter. cool. beans.

hahah so I was reading back at my previous posts....oh my heck I was retardedly immature back then! and it was only a year ago! sheesh. I hated reading about lame boy problems and the crappy drama and my lame depression stage. holy crap. Glad I moved on! Sorry to anyone who even bothered reading past the first sentence.

Well, anyways. I really dont have anything else to say. hahaha my life is so rutine that there is hardly anything to it. Well, hopefully something to update on soon!!! peace.

Here is a still from Kupono and Kayla's addiction ruitine.....kind of an interesting photo, but it was an awesome dance, all the same.

This is my summer, so far....

And it's been one exciting one at that! welll, for the most part. I started working at JFK the begining of May. I traveled a lot, but it was mostly to three specific sites; Trail Wind, Amity, and Grace Jordan. The begining of June, I got assigned to one of those sites. Grace Jordan. It's pretty nice there. I'm the only teacher for the afternoons because we only have like 9 enrolled with a usual of 6 kids actually there. It makes it slow but we're a close group for that. My kids are huge with drama though. Half the time it seems like no one can get along. Thats when I wish we had a bigger site. More kids means more friends and less drama. But alas, this summer didnt work out for me like last. Thats ok though. I like it and I'm most definately learning a lot from it! Half way through the summer. I realized this yesterday, but this week would be the last week of me working if it were last summer. It feels weird to not know how long I will be working at one place. I usually have a finishing line that I cross. You know, the end is in sight, kind of thing. Well, moving on!
Besides work, my life has also you guessed it. hahaha, yeah mostly just So You Think You Can Dance, Wipeout, and Harpers Island. Lets start with the first. hahah I LOVE sytycd! It makes me wish that I was a dancer every day of my life! Maybe I'll take some lessons and try out in a few years....hahaha. But yeah, so my favorite dancers are Kupono, Kayla, Evan, Randi and Brandon! and lucky me, THEY ARE ALL IN TOP 10!!!! Yay! hahah so happy. But now comes the hardest part of the show. Watching your favorite ones leave because only one person can win. I'm just glad all of my favorites have made it this far. But this last week, the best dances were most definately kupono and kayla's contemporary ruitine by Mia Michaels. Pure genious. The theme was addiction, and it was danced to Gravity by Sara Buralliose....or however you spell her name. But let me tell you, holy cow!!! I think this dance totally beat out Mia's award winning dance from season 2! the bench one with Travis and Heidi. Wow, I got the biggest goose bumps and I couldnt stop watching it!!! It was very powerful. If kupono would dance all of his ruitines like that he would most definately win. The next favorite dance was Brandon and Janett's Wade Robson Jazz. Danced to Ruby Blue by Roisin Murphy. Talk about entertaining! hahah, that was so great to watch! It most definately helps that it was a Wade Robson piece, too. That guy is a dancing god! (Can you tell who my favorite coreographers are? Add Sonya and you've got it!)
But enough about the best show on earth, lets move on to the next. Harpers Island.
So I started watching this show because it was recommended on IMDB, way back in May.....when I really wasnt working much. It's a suspensful horror mystery show that was kind of cheesy, but the eye candy kept me watching. Man that Jimmy....hahaha, anyways, I dont really know what got me so hooked. Maybe it was the fact that I had to make sure that my favorite characters survived the blood bath, or that it seemed like Lost in ways, but either way, I watched and I got very hooked. Well, yesterday was the finale. I'll just say that I wasnt really surprised at who the murderer was, but I was WAY surprised with the wicked twist at the very end. Holy cow it blew my mind! I could hardly even sleep last night with trying to have it make sense in my mind! The only thing that I can think of is that Wakefield totally messed with this persons brain. I dont want to spoil anything for anyone, but lets just say I was ultimately befuddled and I really hope Lost doesnt end like that. I dont think it would, because H.I. was so extreme.....and a totally different genre.......but you get what i'm saying....right? hahaha
Well, anyways, that has been my summer so far. Drama filled work and TV. And i guess i should confess my addiction to Mario Kart, too....hahaha. But things to look forward to: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on tuesday night with Natalie, Maria's wedding reception on the 25th, and Krista bringing me home passion fruit from brazil! Oh and I totally cant wait to visit my friends, Jacqueline and Tiffany when I go to I.F. this weekend! aight, until next time!

just a little somethin somethin.....

so updating on me! haha, not much to say actually; being home is great, but its rather slow.....I'm used to always having something to do, something to keep me working and busy, or something nagging at the back of my mind.....but nope, nothing.
I did email maryann from jfk about two weeks ago, but seeings as she was out of town for the whole time, I never did expect her to write back, but now that she is home and there is no response....well you can see my fret. I know she has only been back for a day and probably had more important things to worry about and catch up on than hiring back people, but still......I want a response soon so I dont have to worry too much about my future summer. As for getting a second job, here is my dilema....I love to play too much on summer nights! I love to be able to go swimming when I want or to a movie or just sit at home and read a book or hang out with friends! finding a second job for my nights would SUCK. but hey, I guess if I really want or need the money, I should be more serious about life instead of pretending I'm a high school senior again....even though it was great. meh, we will see how things play out when I get there.
Over the weekend I had some fun, though! I went to the zoo with Jessica, Brittany and Wendy and oh my gosh let me tell you about the newness at the zoo!!!! it was so exciting to see this whole new african exhibit!!! I enjoyed it soo much I wanted to play all day there!! And after the zoo we went to the train depot and had lunch. It was such a pretty day! the only thing that ruined it were the nasty fish in the pond and their icky mouths.....blah! But besides that it was so much fun! That night, Jessica Krista and I went to see 17 again with Zach Efron and the guy that played Chandler on Friends. It was pretty good! And can I say that Efron has a pretty nice body.....and he's tan too. He would have totally fit into the 60's california scene. Or he fits here just fine :)
But past all that, the new week looks like and interesting results show of DWTS and an informational episode of paycheck comes this week and pretty much all of it goes to Krista.....and maybe byui. Anyways! Tomorrow is supposed to be another beautifully warm day and I'm not missing it by sleeping in until 1:00pm again! boa noite! or however you spell it! :)

Making lists

So I'm sitting here on my bed.....sheets and blankets all ascewed (just the way I like it).....a bowl of oatmeal next to my knee......and trying to multi task with homework....writing an email for a job.....and eating my breakfast. This is my to do list for today:
1) complete homework for today
2) clean my nasty room.....mostly just hanging up clothes.....i have a bad habit of dumping them on the floor.....
3) meeting at 3:00 pm for group presentation. Putting together a slide show and figuring out what I'm actually saying.
4) meeting at 5:30 pm for group debate. Putting together a slide show and figuring out what I'm actually saying...........lame.
5) 9:00 work.....DISH CREW. yeah baby..........everybody loves it..............but hey! plus side is that it's my third time working in this pay period! i'll be at about $65 this paycheck!!! nice.....yeah that has been my semester. lowest paycheck=$18.....highest paycheck=$105. median has been about $60, Which isnt bad, but compared to last semester, its terrible.
ANYWAYS......I found this school in California. Its a photography school called Barkers. I havent really looked that far into it, but so far it looks interesting. Meh.....I think, even though I love photography, I'll keep that as a hobbey. BUT I was talking with my friend/ex-roommate the other day during our late March blizzard, and I found out that she wants to be a history major, too! but she's been hiding it because she knows people will look down on her and everyone will be like oh that is such a dead-end major......Honestly though, here are my reasonings:
a) SOMEONE needs to keep history alive. Otherwise it will all be forgotten. Honestly though, there are some people that are just called to these things. Somebody needs to do it, so why not let the people who are passionate about it take care of it. The few, the proud, the historians.
b) At some point, you've heard it all before. So if you stick with it, you can get past the point of people breaking you down and you get to where you want to be. Prove them all wrong. If it's a true passion then you'll stick with it, no matter the pay or the success or the family and friends who dont support you along the way. Sorry for my example, but I was watching America's Next Top Model the other day, and Tyra Banks was talking about how hard the modeling world is, and if you cant take the critisizm and if you cant take the hard work that is put into it to prove that you are the best, then you're just not cut out for it. Even though for a little while there I did let it get to me, and I tried to look at other options, I keep coming back to history. I can do it. I want to do it. and I will do it. I just find myself attached to it.
I just keep thinking to myself, if this is something you really want to do, dont let other people get in your way.
Well, thats my rant for today. I really need to get on with my know, finish out that list. Lost is on tomorrow night! I hear that we find out more about Kate and what she did with Aaron!
Oh ps Maria finally got engaged! her ring is honkin huge and really pretty! her and Jeffrey get married on May 16th.
