12 days till i move. weird. weird. weird. ya know whats funny? i applied to be an efy counselor and i have an interview at the end of january...but idk, im thinking i might just wanna come straight back after the semester at uvu cuz i love summers here even tho its hot hot hot its fun fun fun. who wouldn't wanna live smack dab in the middle of an area that has 2 lakes, mountains galore, fishing destinations, and lots of open roads to bike on, oh and a national park jus down the road? thats not to mention that its by my family, and i just love the hot summer sun. makes everything better. no cold for sammy. but im excited for a little semester vacation at uvu, a little break from life down here. it'll be fun hangin with charlee and my broski and my extended family. im just already getting excited to come home lol, and i haven't even left....
p.s. my excitement also couldn't have anything to do with the fact that a certain elder iverson would be coming home within the general time frame after this next semester....(there was pure sarcasm in that statement if you didnt get it then....that sucks)
what do ya think about staying for part of the summer up there and being an efy counselor? let me know your opinions!?

I just wanna list a few things i'm super thankful for because it Tis the Season.
-Christmas Music...LOVE IT.
-Country Music....LOVE IT.
-Books, particularly somewhat cheesy but good christmas stories, and also I love movies from ABC family that are also particularly somewhat cheesy but good christmas stories.
-that i have a job
-when i go through a whole shift without any mean customers:)
more serious notes-
-my good friends who i can call any time of day- and they help me out.
-my family, ya they're pretty much freakin amazing, i really do feel so blessed to be a part of such a great fam
-The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the restored true gospel of Jesus Christ, my reason for what I do, the reason for who I am, the one thing I know is true. I really feel extremely blessed to be a part of this church. I love it. Most importantly, I'm thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me, and I'm thankful for Jesus Christ and what He did for me, and also what He continues to do for me daily, He gives me strength to keep going, and every single day (even on the ones that seem so bad) I see the Lord's hand in my life. He blesses me continually, even when I make mistake after mistake after mistake, "His hand is stretched out still" (2 Nephi 15:25)
-Last, but certainly not least, I'm thankful for Elder Colten Iverson. :) That boy has done more for me than I could ever just type up in a blog. I'm so lucky to know him, I'm so blessed to be a part of his life, and I feel like he is one of the biggest blessings in mine.

my 4th of july- well i must say i found a new talent- i am BASICALLY a professional kneeboarder. ya- if you need any tips you just ask. i will gladly share.
ok i'm really not- but i will be honest i had a glorified kneeboarding moment when i stayed on for like 10 frickin minutes.
i also worked the night of independence day. freedom isn't free. but God Bless America- land that i love (have you seen 'the proposal'? that song should take on whole new meaning :))
that morning we had a chili dog party at the theater- do not worry i didn't complete the whole day without any embarrassing moments, i just happened to spill every tiny last piece of powdered sugar on my leg that originally was on top of a lemon bar thing. do i know how it happened? no. but was the lemon bar still good without the powdered sugar? yes:)
Oh another awesome moment of that day- we had a tour group of teenagers come in saturday night (about 40 people) and for some reason the credit cards that that particular tour company has been using haven't worked on our system. do i know why? nope. the cards/ our system are both stupid. so long story short i had to get on the phone with the company and then they wanted to speak to the specific card owner so i had to go get the tour guide and bring him up to the office... that sentence sounds like its going in an inappropriate direction- but its not dont worry :) hahaha. anyway i was in a hurry because these movies start at specific time and he was missing his movie so i was going up the stairs as quickly as i could (something i should have thought ahead of time as not a good idea) and i was running in front of him because obviously he doesn't know where to go so it couldn't be one of those situations where you look around and think 'oh good no one saw' OH no - he saw, i totally biffed it. i just picked myself up and didn't look back at him because i didn't want to see his reaction because im not a fan of the i-feel-bad-for-this-person-whom-i-dont-know-so-i-dont-wanna-laugh-but-that-was-freaking-hilarious face. But overall he was pretty nice about it. and the embarrassment passed quickly because i was too rushed to stop and think about it. anyway there ya go. have a good day. a good week. and a good month. and for the record- a small piece of advice, dont run up stairs.

Remember a while back, when i posted about my herculesnephite jelly shoes? ..... sniff sniff.... well, a couple of days ago i went tubing down the river with nicole ryan and mckay, and this little boy's purple toy was floating fast down the river and i stood up to go and get it or at least attempt it, either way my intentions were good, and then i slipped and somehow my shoe came off and i immediately stood up and looked right where i was standing i didn't even move and it was gone! i looked downstream, nothin! everywhere! nothin! no sign of my shoe. i have no idea what happened to it. LUCKILY, i know they still have them at wal-mart so i will be returning there to purchase a second pair. but seriously. SAD sad, SAD, news. somehow ill make it through the week. but, i must say, if you minus the shoe loss, the tubing trip was freakin rad. oh and minus my wretched sunburn. but really it was a fun trip everyone should do it in their lifetime. anyway, i hope you all have a wonderful day. :)

things that really just make me angered.
-bad drivers- ok ok i am NOT the greatest myself but sometimes i really feel like pulling out a siren and pulling some people over.
-chick flicks that are so hilarious and awesome and then there is some dirty part that they just had to through in there.
-when its southern utah, the month of June, and the one day you plan on going swimming with yer buddy Nicole, and it rains.
-shaving my legs
-opening up a chip bag expecting it to be Full of Bliss, and you notice its only 1/3 full of bliss
-angry, non-understanding, management hating, firebreathing customers
-And, waking up thinking i'm gonna eat a lil healthier today...going to bed thinking- yes, i really did eat that cheeseburger and strawberry shake, AFTER dinner.
-serving sizes - u know no one in their right mind is gonna only eat 10 chips.
Things that really make me smile: :)
-finishing a great book- and reading it too but it always feels good to be done with it
-when my dog turbo starts wagging his tail just because i looked at him and said his name :)
-getting letters and emails from colten
-when i have finished a long day and look back and think dang i accomplished a lot today
-the days that i do eat healthy and work out which has been surprisingly more often than not recently minus yesterday
-yoga (new found likeness, thanks jenny for introducing it to me)
-being sore from working out
-rainy days (if i didnt happen to be planning on going swimming that day)
-some of my pedicure regulars just make me smile they're nice people
-my family and colten's family all make me smile bigtime
-chocolate peanut butter ice cream in any form- georgia mud fudge blizzards-subway sandwiches- Chocolate really in any form- rootbeer and lemonade mixed (weird i know)
-my fellow employees at coral cliffs cinema 8 (hurricane's fine choice for movie entertainment)
-music- singing- attempting playing the piano and just anything country makes me happy
-AND last but certainly Not least- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints- i love having the gospel in my life- i'd be crazy without it.

i will try not to drag on forever i'll just cover the main points
-first procedure we had to show the examiner how to do was the manicure - idk about you but LOTION is kindof an important part of the manicure- its a general item that does so much for the skin that people tend to apply it daily so of course you'd want that to be part of the manicure. WELL, as i began the procedure- guess what? i was missing lotion in my kit- guess what i found out? taya had it in hers....
-still in the first procedure- at the end of my pretending to massage without lotion step, i began to paint the nails. (blonde moment approaching) after i had them all painted i looked around the room and realized i was the only one painting... awesome... so i felt pretty lame for a moment but i was still upbeat haha so then when i finished the examiner asked me, "can i see your hand?" now just think about this moment, me+blonde hair+ nervousness= me answering back, "sure" and handing her my own hand, rather than the hand that the test was being graded on. and then halfway through handing her my hand in that split second i realized "wow, that was dumb" and she said "no, uh," and rather than having her actually have to explain it to me i luckily...not really luckily at this point but still luckily, i managed to catch her drift and i handed her the actual hand she wanted.
-next procedure- how to put on a nail tip. DIDN'T even know i was supposed to do this procedure, so that kinda stunned me but i had all the equipment so in the 2 MIN allowed to put all your stuff away and get all the other stuff out and clean and disinfect it all i managed to miss grabbing the glue. if you've ever had your nails done, you know just how important that glue is. so BASICALLY that section i didnt do too hott on because i couldn't perform the procedure. awesome.
-the other procedures i thought i did alright on, till we recieved our test scores.
a smidge of ventage for a second- can i just say its freakin lame because the company that tests us don't regulate all the rules with the state completely and they didn't give all the information to our teacher so theres no way we could have known all that we were supposed to- because even if you know how to do all the procedures properly and you do it cleanly (im making that a word if its not one) - if you dont dispose of the proper crap into its proper trash bags you get docked points - if you dont break every orange stick before throwing it away- you fail OH and one more detail thats just AWESOME, when you do fail because your first time its just about guaranteed that you will, they dont tell you what you missed points on... so basically ya gotta ask around town till ya figure it out on your own. how do i feel about this all? pretty dang angry.

AWESOME news.... i hope everyone senses my sarcasm when i say stuff like AWESOME news... and i hope you realize whats about to come up next is actually about the least awesome thing on the planet. Monday, April 27th, the day after my birthday- at approximately 3:15 i found out my score of the practical for nail techs. i wont tell you the exact percentage but lets just say- there was some major failage goin on. me AND taya failaged. i wont go into detail about how completely and utterly retardando the psi exam company is- there are too many details and frankly i dont wanna get too riled up at this moment in time. good news- and this really is good news- taya passed her theory test which i have yet to take so i do have hope that i will also pass it but since she passed it that means that she and i will both prob retake the practical you have to pass both tests to get licensed and if i fail them both miserably i may just stay a forever apprentice because paying 87 dollars to experience major failage is only fun so many times. i take my theory test on saturday. good luck to me. gotta wait 30 days to take practical again. OH i'm starting back up at the theater this saturday i'm excited:) AND i wont be working any kids shows this summer HALLELUJAH. hope my jumbled mess of words and thoughts made sense:) i heart everyone who takes time to read me blog. peace out. maybe ill tell about my nail experience another day- my friends that have heard about it basically almost peed their pants laughing. yes i shall blog it at some point. i can only handle so much embarrassment at a time. peace dawgs.

i came up with this fantastic quote. Fantastic is really the only word that comes to mind when i think about this quote. here ya go.
"He who throws away the crushed little pieces of chips at the end of the bag is wasteful and it shall not be well with him in the life after this. However, he who believes himself to be 'all that in a bag of chips' for him, it shall be even worse."
just might be the dumbest thing i've thought all day, and yet it just might be the smartest. I'll let you be the judge of that.
I didnt say it, Lincoln did. Man i miss the good ole days... founding fathers rock. Abraham Lincoln rocked too.
