You know, technology really ticks me off sometimes.
I have this cute, clean, white blog all planned out in my head, and I sit down to make it happen?  I can't get the whole blog white!  What the heck!  I can't get rid of the blog template I was previously using.

And don't start me on Paint. I have no idea how to work that program.  See how grainy my pics are on my new title?  It's cause when I paste them they paste HUGE!  Like, big as the computer screen huge!  What the heck?!

This blog is so cute in my head. All clean and purdy.

So for now, I will just have to deal with the blog the way it is.
Not like it's hugely popular or anything.


That's all

I Did It!

Last Tuesday, I successfully accomplished a New Year's Resolution for the first time in my life. 

Yes. That's right. First time ever.
50 temple visits in less than 50 weeks. 

I am so grateful I made this resolution this year.  The temple was a place where I could escape from school, work, living at home.  I shared many trips with a wonderful friend, and we'd always grab breakfast somewhere afterwards. I went to temples I wouldn't have gone to normally, namely Los Vegas, Salt Lake and Mt. Timp.

Mostly for my own records, but just in case you're interested, here's a breakdown of my visits
1-10 Draper Temple
11 Mt. Timpanogos
12 Draper
13 Mt. Timpanogos
15. Oquirrh Mt.
16- 17 Draper 
18. Oquirrh Mt.
19. Provo
20. Draper
21. Las Vegas
22. Draper
23. Salt Lake
24- 26 Draper
27- 28 Jordan River
29- 33 Draper
34- 42 Oquirrh Mt.
43. Draper
44. Oquirrh Mt.
45- 50 Draper

Doesn't that look awful?
It looks awful to me... even though it's worth 10 extra credit points in a class that could desperately use it.
Luckily, it wasn't very difficult to memorize. The big Y thing will be provided for me, thank heavens.

I'm so tired of this teacher located in the bottom right corner. She's impossible to study for. She gives us study guides and doesn't use a single word from them on the actual tests.  She's nit picky on the memorized portions of the tests.  It's just so difficult to deal with her.
Not to mention she cackles. All class long.

I wish in nursing applications, they let us rate the clarity of our teachers. Then maybe the B- I'm sure I'll get will make more sense to the selection committee.
This class makes me so excited for January, when I can escape school and have a ball in Florida.  Then, when that adventure ends, hopefully I'll be starting up nursing school.

Seriously, can it be January already?

The Nose Knows

I was born with my daddy's nose.
In fact, that was one of the first things out of the nurse's mouth. "Oh, she's got daddy's nose!"

Anyway, about a year and a half ago, my nose got 'super smell powers'.  At first I thought it was funny, but then it got to the point where I had to ask my boyfriend to brush his teeth because I could 'super sense' his breath just from cuddling. No, he did not have bad breath, everyone said they couldn't smell anything. It was just me.

Today my 'super smell' has really been annoying. I walked in to a exam room and immediately identify the smell of cigarettes and Frito's chips.  The next room smells like our cleaning solution spilled all over, and it definitely had not.  The next room smells so strongly of cigs that I had to fetch the orange citrus smell well spray.

What an annoyance.

Though I'll always love my daddy nose.

Yes! I've been accepted as a Character Performer at Walt Disney World!
I don't know what I'll be yet,
but judging by my audition and height,
I'm almost 100% sure I'll be a fur character.

So that means....
I'll get to meet guests dressed as:
& a few other 5'0 characters!

Have A Magical Day!

A Somber Moment

Mom and I took a trip to the impound lot last Thursday.
It was a really sad experience.
Looking at my car all banged up made me want to cry (I didn't, amazingly)

The insurance adjuster called and she's working on the final price for my car. Things look good, better than what I had expected, but no amount of money can give me back Max.

Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

Here's a little Halloween creativity from
Medical Towers Family Practice.

Any guesses as to which one's mine? If you guessed Minnie Mouse, you'd be right!
