I found out today that I passed all of my classes for Fall 2009 at BYU I took some difficult classes including retaking American Heritage. As the semester has gone on I have become very nervous I would fail again. The tests are hard for me. I studied and studied and studied. Any time my friend Ailli would ask me what I did or was going to do that night the answer was studying for American Heritage. I am so glad and feel so good that this classes are over and won't have to ever worry about them again! I now have three more semesters of college left! I am trying to figure out where the time went!!? I can't figure it out it feels like just yesterday I walked into my first ever college class. At that time it seemed like an impossible task to complete all of the requirements. But now I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel! I am taking a lot of fun classes here at the end I have the worst of it all over with!

School is very intense right now. I took two tests today...I study for American Heritage for about 15 hours in the last week. AH! I am done with that one thank goodness... however did not do as well as hoped :D I have to take another test Friday(tomorrow) and one on Monday.... than I have a huge American Heritage paper due Thursday next week...a paper due Friday and a paper due Monday all equally agonizing and lengthy. On top of that I have all normal reading, quizzes and homework assignments. This is typical for all college students here at the Y and I am sure other colleges. When do I enjoy life? Well this might sound odd but I should while I am going through all of this! While studying for my American Heritage test I came to realize I am not at school to pass college and cram everything in and forget it but I am here to learn and apply stuff to life. I learned so much about the US Constitution and government system. I now know how our nation became a nation and how the system works. What a wonderful blessing it is to be here and to learn about such important points in the history of our country. Without the 19th Ammendment which was passed in 1920 I would not have the right as a women to vote. I believe this is a true blessing to be able to vote. Or what a significant even the Civil War was 618,000 people died and was a very bloody war during the time of Abe Lincoln. This helped end slavery. Where would we be today if we still had slavery? I am very grateful to my Father in Heaven to let me have the chance to attend BYU. I hope I can continue to have my eyes open to the real reason I am here whether I pass or fail my classes grade wise this semester I have gained knowledge that I can take with me for eternity! Now that I am forever grateful.

Last weekend the BYU Cougars beat Oklahoma!! It was awesome! I was able to participate in the post events of the game after getting home from work for the last couple of seconds in the game. Which is all I care about really :D Provo was crazy that night people were screaming on the streets all hours of the night. This video is of the block party on my street that I went to check out. After the party we proceeded up ninth east in a group at least a hundred stopping traffic and cars honking like crazy! The BYU spirit was alive and happy that night! Tomorrow we will beat Tulane!

Things are not that exciting in Provo. I spend most of my time at work do what I do best flipping burgers however that is not my job but most people think I do all day. I made a goal at the beginning of the summer to go on at least two dates that the guy askes me out on...still has not even gotten close to that goal. I miss Melissa and Aubrey and can't wait for their return for yet another exciting school year! My plan is to enjoy the summer while I can cause next thing I know it I will be wanting the summer again :D

Going to my brother Adam Michael's graduation brought back lots of good memories. I sometimes wish life was as easy as high school however I like to grow and so that would not really worked out. :D I am so proud of Adam he graduated at the top of his class with a Cum.

I received the new calling of Relief Society teacher at church and got the privilege to teach today. It was the first time I have ever taught ever. It was very nerve racking and I think I was freaking out when Sunday School came. When I got to RS I was panicking and I had to run to the bathroom quickly so I did not wet myself. That would have been horrible. oh wow! I feel that it went alright for my first time. The spirit was there and that made me so happy I just wanted the girls in my ward to be somewhere they could feel the spirit of the Lord more strongly and feel lifted by each others comments. I will be teaching again in a couple of weeks. :D

Note to Jessica: I love you so much! Congrats on your call!! Every time I watch this video I can't help but be very happy and smiley. I love you! You are so awesome! You will do awesome in Canada!! You go girl!
My darling gorgeous niece Kate sits on the lawn at my parents house begging for the ball while she sits on the grass but will not crawl on the grass. Bless her! She is such a cutie from some amazing parents! She started crawling on the grass later that evening!

Mr. Blackburn's choir classes were the best possible classes that I could have ever taken in Jr. High. He not only taught me how to sing well, read music, and be a member of a choir but above all he taught us about life virtues patience, kindness, love dedication, hard work, and persistence. Discipline is one thing that I really needed to learn while in his class. His class was always so structured and well organized. I loved the passion he has for his students and for the music. One thing that I enjoyed about his concert was reminder about he does it all! He plays the piano and conducts the choir at the same time I just love how he manages to do it so well. I have never been in any choir when the director could do such talented work. Now being 6 years since I have been in his class I still long for the chance to be in his presence because it has made such a positive effect in my life. I will never forget his jingles...any one who has had him knows what I am talking about! Mr. B has made a great impact in my life! Thank you! I love him dearly! I wish him the best in his future of composing music and the rest of his endeavors.
I went to Mr. Blackburn's last concert which was very good. I have a great friend in Chamber Choir his name is Lance Elliott and he is just awesome! I am so proud of how well he did. I was so excited to go and see him perform. The concert was great everyone was excellent singers and the guitarist rocked. I couldn't ask for a better concert! Lance you did amazing! You are the best!

I think that there are a lot of reasons that I would rather be a man. I don't really like all of the stuff that comes with being a woman. All of the things we go through. We have to be the pregnant ones thankfully I have not done that one yet. but when it is my turn it will be so fun! haha and painful. having periods, dealing with men, and being emotional. It is all just one big thing of fun and I really do like being a girl at most parts of life. It is far much more fun. I love going shopping and being able to dress up pretty and all. I love being a girl! Life is such an exciting thing!!
