Yesterday we had quite the entertainment. The roomies and I went down to go watch a movie on the big screen, and this women walked in with her child, and she was like,"I'm not crazy, I am allergic to strawberries and I need some benadryll." So Kristin gave her some because she is allergic to nuts. So she was talking to us about all her problems, and telling us about how she is 25 and has 6 kids and her husband is in Prison, and she was being weird about the fact that Kristin and I had boyfriends, and she was talking about getting it on with Polynesians, and black guys. And we were starting to get bad vibes. She was from Cedar and came here to get a new car, and she couldnt call her parents because they could pick her up, and was saying that she couldnt drive back and was asking us to go with her up there. She invited us to a party up there. It was just all really weird. So point of me telling you this..She was a criminal and wanted for her arrest. CRAZY! go figure that we would be the ones who tried to help her hu?

First football game was last night. And we won! I forgot how much fun it is to watch a football game with friends. We met some really cool girls that were sitting behind us, and they live by us. Alayna Kristin and I are trying to make one new acquaintance or friend each day. It's usual in the Cafe. It really is a great place to meet people.
I ran into my Bishop last night, he is so awesome. I already love him. He asked if I could be interviewed apparently they had been trying to contact me, but they were calling the wrong number. It was a good thing I stopped by. I have duties and responsibilities to fulfill in the Ward now. I'm honored and so thrilled to be apart of something again.
I had the opportunity to experience laundry in college. Woo hoo. Nothing special I promise. It's just really hot down in the basement. Alayna and I tried to study for BIO/CNA but it just wasnt working out for us. There was another freshman down with us, that just wanted to talk and talk and talk..you know how that goes. Finally she left and we were able to get a bit of studying to do.
Tonight is the Foam dance and I'm so psyched! Cant wait. Then I believe we are going on a night swim at Scott's.
I'm so grateful for the friends that I've been able to make. I always worry about associating myself with the right people, and I know that I don't have to worry with these guys. They truly are more than I could ever ask for. An answer to prayers really.

So Monday and Friday are offically my only relaxing days. I just go go go. But nevertheless I'm having fun, and controlling my stress level. My Bio teacher is a witch, but there's always one. It will be a challenging class and I will have to work and study harder than ever.
Last night Kristin and I had a deep discussion on the afterlife and our minds kept going into the abyss of unanswered questions. Finally at about 3am we went to sleep. No big deal ya know?
When all is said and done, I miss home, but I love being able to come home to Kristin Alayna and Annika where I can just lay all my stories on and they will laugh and listen and keep me going. They truly are what friends should be like in College.
Cant wait for a new day tomorrow. I have my Math class in the morning and then I will be running all around campus to get things done, and taking tests, and going crazy inbetween. Attending my Bio and First year Experience class. LAMEE.
I cant wait for the weekend to arrive it will be awesome just to relax and not have anything to worry about.

So college is not at all as bad as I thought it would be. Besides all the hustle and bustle on my way to Math at 7:50am its pretty calm around here. My first day went great. I had math, and my teacher is Romanian, she has a really thick accent, reminds me of a high school teacher I had Mr. Lorenzo. Then I have my CNA class and I'm like one of 10 girls out of 25..what a surprise?
There are so many activities going on theres no way you can be bored.
I've already grown to love my roommates. Last night they came home, and I was already in bed, and I sat up and I just said," I just love you guys". It was quite the ice breaker for one, but they are awesome. It's like we've known each other for years, but its only been like 5 days. Its awesome.
I'm excited to move on into the next chapter of my life. It will be quite the experience, but I'm ready for whatever is in store for me.
