Trying to Figure out School

I love being able to put my college schedule together, plan out everything... how early I want to start, how late I want to end, who my teachers are... I love it. But this next semester is giving me grief. I don't know what brilliant idea I had to do my generals and prerequisites at BYU-Idaho and then transfer to Weber for the radiology program... I mean it sounds pretty good, but you see, BYU-Idaho has these little classes called Foundations, and they are HORRIFIC to try to transfer. Most schools won't accept them unless you get your associates. Which I'm not doing because I don't need it for my program. So I have to make sure all my classes will transfer and then work for the program, which is an obnoxious hassal to deal with. It was a long day yesterday to say in the least, I was on the computer way too long researching teachers and trying to figure out a schedule...I'm still not done. I also found out that I couldn't take the awesome sounding "understanding DNA" class because it won't transfer as a gen ed science... so I'm stuck with physics. blahhh That class will have to wait for fall semester because it's everyday for an hour plus a two hour lab, which I can't fit in my schedule without getting rid of math or bio 265... Oh well I get to fill in my credits with some whatever classes, maybe cake decorating!? How fun would that be. I know I'm seriously considering it.

Silent Film

So the song I've been loving this week is Wordplay: by Jason Mraz. I just love it.

Well, Heather and I thought it would be really fun to do a double date at The Organ Loft to see a silent film. My dad took the family along with the Lord's family and we saw a comedy there a long time ago, and it honestly has really fun. Well the organ loft was showing the Count of Monte Cristo, which we thought would be brilliant to go see. Well it turns out that it's almost painful to watch 2 hours of non-comedy silent film with organ music the entire time. That movie was so long and those chairs so hard, that date did not go as I planned. It was definitely an experience nonetheless. But we've come to the conclusion that if you are going to see a silent film at the organ loft, ONLY watch comedies. They're much shorter and more enjoyable. Plus, less confusing.

Well, right now in life I'm living at home, inbetween semesters at BYU Idaho. I go back to school mid April until the end of July. And thank goodness I've found things to keep me busy. Three days a week I watch my neighbors autistic boy and get paid from the state for that. Which is great, I'm making more money there then I did at my old job. The other two days of the week I tutor a girl in math. She's a junior in high school taking algebra 2. And then sometimes I fill in shifts at my old job when they need me too. So altogether it's been good having these jobs. I got a lot to earn to pay off my school loan.
I'm also taking two institute classes at UVU, which have been so great for me. I miss the school atmosphere so just being in a class learning something again is wonderful. I'm also dating someone amazing right now. He keeps my nights busy, but hey that's great. Before I met him I was bored to tears.
My birthday was last thursday, so I'm 19 now!
But yeah, I guess there's some updates for you.

The job I have right now involves watching my neighbors’ autistic son, Spencer, who is 17. He’s a big kid, meaning height, but he’s also pretty severely autistic. He doesn't talk much and when he does it’s either a direct answer to whatever you asked him, or he’s reciting lyrics/lines from a movie he’s memorized. Spencer has a hard time expressing himself with his difficulty of speech so he finds other ways to get your attention… like pinching.
Now I’ve heard about this killer pinch and I’ve seen it in action but Friday, I experienced it. And yes it hurts.

So today I was playing Solitaire. And in one of the games I couldn't flip over any of the cards already down, and I went through the deck and after it flipped over the last 3 cards, it told me I lost. I didn't move ONE card. I didn't even know that was possible of happening. Not even a chance with that set up. Dang.
