Annie

Meet Annie.  She is a happy, beautiful, talented, amazing person.  I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like Annie.  She is my roommate and I am probably one of the luckiest people to have her in my life.  No joke.  This girl has done more for me in the three years we have known each other than I think she realizes.  She is my best friend.  I love her to death.  I know I can tell Annie anything and everything (which I probably do too much) and I hope she feels the same way with me.  The funny thing is we are actually quite different.  Its weird when I think about how different we are sometimes, but at the same time we somehow just get each other.

I will never forget the first time I met Annie... I was in my dorm in 1222 Chipman Hall my Freshman year, unpacking with my mom and sisters and this cheerful, upbeat girl comes bounding into my room.  "Hi, I'm Annie!  I live two doors down...."  Ever since then we have done so much together, been through so many fun times together, suffered through lots of hard times together, and have stayed great friends through all of it.  I know whenever I'm with Annie I will have a good time.  She always makes me feel like she really cares about my life.

Freshman Year ^
 Sophomore Year ^

And this year...

I think the thing that really scares me, and actually really depresses me is thinking of leaving Utah and coming back in a year and a half without this girl.  I cant imagine BYU without her and I hope I can survive without her caring, amazing self.  For reals though.  Annie has made me a better person.  I know we will stay friends forever.  (At least we better!)

So I know I've been slacking on posting lately...But I have been working hard on other things, so thats good right?  I've had a HUGE Computer Science project that has literally been overtaking my life.  But I turned it in at 11pm last night, so life is good.  Well except for the fact that now I have to catch up on all the rest of my classes...  Wish me luck :)

p.s. See this movie.. I saw it on Saturday and its good.

Spain.



Yep, thats where I'm going to be spending the next 18 months of my life starting on July 20th!  M├ílaga, Spain!!   I literally cannot stop thinking about it.  And the few times that I do forget about it for just a few minutes (ok seconds...), and then remember again, I just get re-excited all over again.  I still don't think it has completely hit me.  I'm going to be living in Spain, preaching the Gospel to the people there, and I couldn't be more excited!!!  Basically thats been my life for the past 4 days.  I think it goes without saying that I haven't been able to focus on much of anything else...  I keep trying to plug away at school work (silly, right? haha) but I would much rather be printing off my passport picture or shopping online with my mom for clothes that are only on sale today, or start trying to learn Spanish!  But sadly, as much as I want to do these things (and actually do these things...) I really have quite a lot of homework to do.  Lets hope I can make it through this week of school...

Anxious. Nervous. Excited.

I dont think I have been more nervous in a long time.  I'm so incredibly excited, but within 7.5 hours I will know where I am going to spending the next 18 months of my life!!  AHHHHH I cant wait this long.  (That's assuming my call even comes today!!)

Mission call opening.... T minus 53 hours.  It cannot come soon enough!!!

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Am I mean for not wanting to help a student who gets on the help list literally 2 MINUTES after I had helped him with a completely different problem??  Can you not at least try to pretend you struggled through the problem a little bit???   And when I go over to help him he has to minimize his Facebook chat window?  Maybe I'm just a mean, super impatient person, but it got me really annoyed.

Something exciting!!

So to make up for that not so exciting post like 2 seconds ago, I figure I'd unveil something very exciting that is coming up in my life...

drumroll...

My mission papers are officially in (as of last Wednesday)!!!  I get my call in approximately 8 days - hopefully!  That is wayy too far away.  I can barely even sleep at night just thinking about it all!  Ahh.  I'm pretty much siked for it.

Maybe in a few days I'll get around to creating one of those silly Facebook groups to have people guess where I'm going...so be thinking!
So I have one half an hour break on Tuesdays...(yes Karalyn and Annie I am thankful for that super loonng break).  Anyways, I was in the Talmage building and head over to my lab.  Well, I guess its not my lab, but I call it my lab because its the only one I ever go to these days.  And usually I have something productive I have to be working on during my break...but today I really could not find one pressing thing.  Look at my Google Calender for proof!




No homework till Thursday!  And then just a little reading on Friday.  I know I should probably be getting ahead or studying or something, but I don't even have another midterm for another 3 weeks!  And I don't have another CS lab due for another 2.  This is big!  (I know I'll probably remember something huge I should've been doing in like an hour, but for right now I am stress free!)

I know, super random, and no one is probably interested, but it was a nice little surprise for me.  Maybe I'll actually go running today...We'll see.
