Senior!? in COLLEGE?


i can't believe this. i'm a senior in college? this is my 4th and last year at USU? what?
i'm only 21. i dont even have a husband yet! (you think thats a joke? its not.)

i moved my crap into my little apartment today.
its by far the OLDEST place i've lived in, so i'm sure you can imagine what it looks like.
its reaaaaallllly old. old as in, they made me sign a contract as to not lick the walls due to lead-based paint, kinda old. but for 167 a month? i'd live almost anywhere. almost.

so, i guess its meh... soso. my closet doesnt have doors...which is completely awkward.. but
the best part about my room is my darling little vanity my mom convinced me to get. pictures soon.
completely stoked about it.... because now i can sit on my little white stool, put on my face, string some pearls on me and feel like anne of green gables getting ready for the ball. dang right i'm gonna do it e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y

its not so bad...i'll only be here half the week anyway, the other half i'll be doing my internship at McKay Dee in the women & childrens unit. i'm excited/nervous...but i'm sure i'll have lots of tender stories to tell.

be good to me senior year................ good to me.

(pleasepleaseplease let me get straight A's, get skinny, and meet the love of my life.)

pins and needles

excuse me for sounding like a television ad, but i must say something:

once upon a time, i was a girl who had really bad, benedryl around the clock + zyrtec wouldnt even do the trick for me. i've had them since elementary, and everytime spring/summer roll around i am just a miserable itchy-nose, red-eyed, scratchy-throat person who complains and cries like like a baby. (i couldnt even go outside to play with my boys when i was nannying because just walking onto the grass would start up an itch attack!)

WELL...i finally got fed up of nothing working and was DESPERATE for a cure.
so i went to go try acupuncture.
and wanna know what?

i am allergy free for the first time in 15 years.

i would suggest it to anyone who is allergy-ridden and miserable. the needles are tiny and you can't even feel em. i was scared to do it because i pass out at blood tests..needles are NOT my thing, but it truly isnt bad. (and yeah its a little weird to see a ton of needles poking out of your face and body, but you can just close your eyes for that part.)

boo ya chinese medicine....whatever those magic ninja needles did, they cured me!

Gospel Gem

"All of you need to drink in deeply the gospel truths about the eternal nature of your individual identity and the uniqueness of your personality. You  need, more and more, to feel the perfect love which our Father in Heaven has for you and to sense the value he places upon you as an individual. Ponder upon these great thruths, especially in those moments when (in the stillness of such anxiety as you may experience as an individual) you might otherwise wonder and be perplexed"
-Spencer W. Kimball
