this weekend was crazzy! this past week was homecoming week so there were lots of fun things going on! Tuesday night was hike and light the Y. I didn't get to do it because I had to go to an orientation meeting for the volunteer program I'm doing. I start TOPS (as its called) on Friday. My roommate hiked the Y and said it was fun. Anyways, so Thursday there was a program called "Spectacular" which was rightly named. Many of BYU's top performing groups performed including the ballroom dance team, living legends, young ambassadors (the travelling singing and dancing group) and then the orchestra at temple square came and the MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR! it was amazing! my favorite part (which made me think of Papa) was when the Orchestra played and Mo Tab sorta accompanied with humming and such (no words) and the best of the ball room dance team danced to "If you could Hi to Kolob". It brought tears to my eyes. It was amazing. The rest was too, but that was the best. My other favorite was when the dance team danced to the "Pirates of the Carribean" theme. It was really good. I kind of expected it to be a little bit cheesy, but it wasn't at all. it was Spectacular! haha! its going to be broadcasted on KBYU during Thanksgiving, so I'm going to drive to video tape it! I really want you guys to see it! (christina, you could probly get it though)

So then Saturday was the Homecoming game! My first football game! I painted my face! haha. it was soo fun. It rained some and was kinda cold after I was wet, but it was totally worth it! annndd we won! Be beat Airforce like 31 to 14 i think. I beat them bad! it was great! Then I played with some of my friends from summer. (Annie, my twin and her roommate Kirstie) Then Annie got asked to Homecoming dance so me and Kirstie invited boys over to her apartment (at Wyview) and watched Zoolander. It was fun.

Sunday, was mostly uneventful except for trying to write a paper for like 5 hours, but I was struggleing soo much that I had to change topics. I ended up writing it Monday night and finishing it at 11:30am with a few hours of sleep in between. My class started at 12:05. haha. Definetly NOT doing that again.

Monday we have FHE. I'm one of the group leaders. Soo we went to our 1st counselors house for dinner (his wife was worried we weren't eating well! they're soo nice!) and then we played games and talked for a while. It ended up lasting like 3 1/2 hours! but it was soo fun! and there are some cute boys in my group too!

Soo yesterday when I finished with classes I was walking back home and there were many firetrucks in a building near mine! Aparrently what had happened was that the RA (ironic) left the oven on or something, and so it starte a small fire. Mostly there was just smoke, but it was especially ironic because this week is safety week! annnd we had a practice fire drill like an hour after the real one! then after that we went over to our fhe bro's apartment and made a cake! a better than anything cake! it was good.

so now i'm sitting in the wilk. oh! I almost forgot! haha. today was my first day of work! i'm doing custodial in the JFSB (the new building). It was fun. I just followed my supervisor around for 3 1/2 hours and did a little training. We also went to breakfast at the Wilk and I helped her do some stuff on the computer. The coolest part is that there are these 2 classrooms that are on turntables and at 9:50 I got to turn them around so they face the same direction so it makes one big classroom. Like i turn them 180 degrees so theres no longer a wall in between. and its battery powere so i just ride it! its fun! haha.

ok so now i'm still sitting in the wilk. Im meeting with one of my TA's for a review session for American Heritage. so yeah! i'm gonna do some hw till we start!

Devotional with Pres. Hinkley

I got up at 6:30 this morning and was in line to see the prophet by 7:30. Devotional starts at 11:05. It was crazy. Some people camped out overnight to be first in line. Luckily we live close to the Marriott Center where it was held. It was soo cold this morning! I was wearing dress pants with a thin hoodie and a big winter jacket on top! and I brought my extra blanket with me. Once we were inside it was kinda cramped and tentions were running high. haha. ironic. competition for seats though... it was stressful. I didn't save any, but Sharlee (from Raleigh!) saved one for her brother, and he barely made it. Pres. Hinckley spoke about the 13 article of faith and such. It was great, but when is he not?

above is my favorite picture I got of him! Apparently it was really bright on stage! (he was doing it on purpose!)

over and out.

College life so far!

So far, college is great! I love my roommates, my classes are good (except one) but I love living in apartment style dorms and the location is great. Not too far from campus, but you can still get a nice little walk at the same time. No big hill to climb up everyday like at helaman halls. I'm very thankful for that. Birthday today! We're gonna have cookies and then go to tunnel singing. Thats pretty much what it sounds like... a whole bunch of students go and sing hymns in a tunnel. haha. but its really cool. The spirit is amazing there.

Homecoming game this week! We're playing Airforce. I'm gonna paint my face!

Oh aannnd the prophet is coming to devotional on Tuesday! soo we're planning on going waaay really in order to even get in, but hopefully get good seats too. I love that guy. =)

Keep you guys posted on more! oh and i'll put pictures up from my party tonight! it'll be tricky bc i don't have a memory card yet. haha. so i'll upload pics every 5 mins or so! plus my friends have cameras too.

over and out! hahah
