On Friday one of my good friends.... Brad got married! I've known Brad since Sophmore year in Highschool he has always been a good friend. All of our friends were always close after highschool. We stayed in touch while we served missions. I got to meet his wife Brianne the day after I got home and I loved her as soon as I met her! They were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple. It was a freezing day but really pretty! It was the first sealing I have been too ( besides when we were sealed to the kids) and it was beautiful!! I got teary eyed a few times :) Most of our friends were on a cruise, so they couldn't be there, But Amanda and I drove down and it was so nice to have her with me. She hadn't seen Brad in 3 years!! They got to speak spanish to each other :) Anyways amanda and I also made a day of it, and afterwards we stayed in SLC and ate lunch then saw Twlilight for the 2nd time. I really enjoyed playing with amanda she got some from her mission 2 weeks ago. We only wrote each other like once or twice while we were on our missions, but when she came back it was like we'd never been apart! I love Amanda she's still the happy, spiritual person I know! I am so blessed to have such great friends!!

Finals week.... Blah!!!

This semester is my very first time being a "full time" student. I have always taken around 9 credits. This time I took 12. Yes its only one class more, but it made a huge differance! Coming home from the mission, and then going straight into school was weird, and hard! So I took communications, Microbiology,Art 1010, and Nutrition. Last week I had 3 communication tests to take all before friday!( that was because i procrastinated) Then I had a presentation to give about Stem Cells, and i couldn't read my notes as i did it. At first I didn't even know what stem cells were.. i thought maybe something in a plant?? So I had to do tons of research on that. Then I had an outline, and a final essay due! I was a wreck all week long. Seriously i never saw my family. I woke up went to school, studied for 2 hours then I went to work, got off work then studied some more. But i have learned some useful things from this past week. I'll share them with you!
#1 Crocs aren't very thick and tacs on the ground will go through them, and go into your foot. ( true story, it happened while I was walking to class, i sat on the ground and got it out as people stared)
#2 The top floor bathroom in the library really is haunted( i promise) And it looks like the bathroom from Harry Potter the one with Mrytle in it. Oh and it smells!
#3 Studying by a window in not a good idea..It's easy to get distracted and people watch.
#4 The institute library is a good place to take a little nap. But when you do it, make sure you don't lean on your binder because it leaves lines on your face and people will notice and stare.
#5 Oranges are not a good snack while reading because the juice gets all over the library books.
#6 Their are computers on the top floor that noone knows about! Use them!
#7 The movie "Sassy Girl" is lame so don't rent it. ( Sierra and i needed a break on Saturday so we rented it, the whole time we waited for a plot, or purpose and never found one. It was the weirdest movie ever! )
#8 Get lots of sleep.
#9 Sometimes you get so tired from the studying that your emotions get out of wack, and you'll find youself crying when you hear songs like "christmas shoes" or cry when you see the salvation army bell ringers outside of walmart.

Well thats all the important facts I can think of right now!

I still have a test on Wed, Thurs and a final paper die by Wed. I am tired, and I am sick of the libray, and campus. BUT I know i'll make it through! But keep me in your prayers! :)
