Where to go? What to focus on? Whenever family comes into town, discussions of college and schooling must follow. So my thoughts on what i want to go into are radiology. I'm not sure what part in that field entirely but that's what i'm interested in. So looking right now I want to start at BYU Provo. But now all my uncles and aunts are saying BYU Idaho. I guess all my cousins my age will be there so it'd be a party! And the school has smaller classes, more help one-on-one from the professors, which would be nice. So i have no idea with that point but i guess it's wherever i get accepted and the best scholarship.
The next step after BYU would be going to the U of U. I know...traitor...but they have one of the best medical programs in the country and they're right by Primary Childrens Hospital; a perfect place to look into pediatric radiology. I was looking into that a little today, talking with a girl at my work. That would be a really cool field to go into. But right now, i still haven't taken the ACT so i'm working toward that. But i'm excited for college and the future. The medical field has so many opportunites and openings because it's always advancing.

hawaii withdrawls

Really what's with me? I blame the weather, gay Utah weather. Hurry on over to summer please and thank you. 10 weeks till schools out! One more term to trug through. yes. A Fine Frenzy, i love. The song you picked me... sweet lyrics. They're warm and fuzzy. "Like an apple on a tree, Hiding out behind the leaves. I was difficult to reach. But you picked me. Like a shell upon a beach. Just another pretty piece. I was difficult to see. but you picked me" singing choir songs in staccato is the best. the song is was more interesting and sounds so much better.. dont know why but i love it. I think we should sing our song like that always. i vote yes for staccato. I wore my first long sleve shirt today since coming home. how sad. I should be in shorts and tank tops running down the beach. Where's my sand? Choir tour next year will probably be in Washington D.C. Fun and exciting and far-away. good. But guess who'll probably not be going again next year. si si me. I'd rather take my extended "choir tour" with kids i don't know in 8 other countries over in Europe for 3 weeks during the summer thank you. And yes Greece is in the agenda. That's paralyzed happiness right there. So... i get to save. Save save money! No wasting, strict, penny pincher... not really. Gotta splurg sometime right. Why be in life and not live? Of course i'm saving up to live so at least i'm working toward some marvolous vacation...not just money to have it. Mondays=get out of school early. yes. it was still too long. Math...maybe making sense. Wednesday will be the day of deciding that fate. One earing was hurting my ear in that i took it out. And forgot about it so by the time i'm in choir i'm realizing i have one earing on... what the crap? One earings pretty cool right? No, wrong. " only have one earing in..." "Yes i know. The other is missing in action" "then take the other one out duh!" the earing slips discretely into the backpack. But low and behold, in my locker tucked deep in the distrubing pages of mass confusion of my math binder..lay my earing. yes! so 2 earings now present themselves. but i've taken out the one again cause ha surprise it's hurting my ear again... lame.

I realized i now have songs in German, Italian, French, Hawaiian, Spanish and Hebrew on my player... freakin cool. I love languages, i love the way they sound. So Yael Naim sings New Soul, the song from the MacBook Air laptop commercial..and i bought her cd! I love love that song. It's just happy. But the rest of her cd does not match that song at all. They're slow and a different style. Most of the songs are in Hebrew and she has some French in there. But i love her voice, the sound of it. She also re-did brittney spears song: toxic. Why she chose that i have no idea. It's slowed down and i'm not gonna lie, kinda sounds creepy; erie like. But i like the rest. It's unique.

I'm gone one week..and the next time i go to the gas station..we're up to 3.15. ???? Pretty sure before i left it was still under 3 bucks..what's the deal here? I really honestly hate gas prices. They make me sick and i'm probably the only one bugged by them out of my friends. Every time we go out to lunch and happen to go by the gas station i always fill up at...and the price happens to have gone up, i flip! We're enjoying our music and i'll freak out like i have tourette syndrome! They all look at me like i'm crazy because i'm making a big deal that gas went up 5 cents. Maybe that's not a lot, but it's my money and gas is too expensive as it is. But what i dont get, maybe it's just because people dont' care or they have the money to spend, is when you see gas staions 10 cents more right next to one that's cheaper. Why are there people are the one with the higher price? Dummys. Money doesn't grow on trees..which i all too well know. Poor kid in school..(and it's harder in college i know, my sister lets me know how hard it's gonna be when i get up there) while my parents are spoiled with their 63 cents a gallon natural gas car..*(gag jealous noises)* ugh. lucky dots.

Wow, i'm far behind in school now. Especially math, i'm tripping and falling down a staircase in there. I have a lovely obscure chapter 5 test that i will for sure fail and a term test to hopefully luck my way through. But that never seems to be the case. I'll study like the good student i am, and that test'll come back red marked. Where as the boy next to me who doesn't give a lick and guesses his way through the test..getting a better score. I dont know what's happening but somethings wrong with that.

I also was able to participate in long stair runs, lunges and squats for my p.e. make-up. I love feeling sore, but my knees feel screwed up so i'm sure that's not a positive sign of this workout. But who knows...maybe it is, i'm no doctor.

But school does have good news. I miraculously heaved my d- in sign language up to an A! Yes i know it's ecstatical. So that was a lovely weight lifted off my school wrapped mind.....term ends on friday..:/

As in introduction to what we will next be doing my dance class, we watched a movie called Stomp Out Loud. Um can i say it's amazing. I don't know how they choreograph it all together but it's amazing.

Sunday Hymns

All the songs we sang today in sacrament were some of my favourites. Some sundays you get hymns that you've never heard of and the melody just isn't there--but today wasn't one of them.
The first hymn was #89 The Lord is My Light. "The Lord is my light; then why should i fear? The Lord is my light, my all and in all. There is in his sight no darkness at all." I love the lyrics in this hymn. They are profound and simple. Why should i fear if i have the Lord in my life? How can i in darkness remain if Jesus is forever reigning in glory? The Lord is my light, my joy, my song. By day and by night he leads me along.

The secod hymn was #172 In Humility, Our Savior. "Let me not forget, O Savior, Thou didst bleed and die for me. Fill our hearts with sweet forgiving; Teach us tolerance and love." Mindy Gledhill sings a beautiful version of this hymn. The alto line is amazing, how it moves and gives feeling. My BMT sister and I switch parts every verse. I start as soprano, she as alto. I love hearing the harmony and singing it.

The third hymn was #85 How Firm a Foundation and it would've been more spiritual had i not been hiccoping loudly while trying to sing. The words were distorted as i sang/hiccoped my way through the song. We were all laughing. "What more can he say than to you he hath said, who unto the Savior for refuge have fled? Fear not, I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed, For I am they God and will still give thee aid. I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand."


"There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has flet ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss. It is necessary to have wished for death, in order to know how god it is to live.
Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget that, until the day God deigns to reveal the future to man, the sum of all human wisdom will be contained in these two words: Wait and hope."
-The Count of Monte Cristo

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
-Eleanor Roosevelt
