Giving Thanks

So i'm a day late... but that's just kinda the way I roll.

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.

Self Exploration

so, basically, pretty much, as i attend the famous Dixie State College, I am currently on my way to an Associates Degree in general stuff. My favorite explanation of gettin yer generals was from my advisor, she called it "Self Exploration" At first I thought ya i like that name, then i realized, WOW. self exploration...lucky me....i'm paying a ridiculous amount of money to explore myself....that sentence could've been taken inappropriately but you know i didn't mean it like that, anyway, i felt pretty lame after my mind reached this conclusion. On the bright (sarcastic) side, I found out something about myself this semester, I really, really, really, dislike, well lets say strongly dislike, well no, for this one were gonna use the word HATE, (in all capitol letters--take note of that) GEOLOGY. Good Ole (frickin) Geology 1010. I really hate it. I like learning, or should I say self-exploring, but ya know what? I hate geology. It is officially worse than math I think. I dont know what it is that gets me, no actually I do know, Not only am i paying to self explore my way to a degree that is "guaranteed" me to make more money than any regular high school graduate, but to make matters even more special, I am paying money to learn about rocks. Personally, I think my interest for rocks left me right around Kindergarten. Maybe it'd be better if my teacher kinda had some sort of idea where i'm comin from, but no he is definitely OBSESSED with rocks. In fact, we were SUPPOSED to be done with the rock chapters and the whole bit of classifying them, (igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary...take your pick) after midterms. Chapters 1-9 we spent on rocks. then we were tested on them, so then were SUPPOSED to be done right? WRONG. my teacher said to us the first class after midterms, right when i was feelin like ok i may be able to handle this class were done with all the rock chapters, these were the almost exact words that came out of his mouth, "Don't think that we're done with classifying rocks, (my heart sinks right about this moment) were still gonna work on this guys i want you to get really good at this, so we'll be spending more class time classifying rocks" WHY? WHY? WHYYYYYY? none of the chapters in the rest of the entire textbook talk about classifying dang rocks. but does that matter to him? apparently not. i hate college. at least for today, as i stare at my open geology textbook, I HATE college.

Dis Isss Mi Nu Powst.

I thought i'd get a little creative with the title there. SO. sammy's life consists of: homework, homework, lack of sleep, guilt for not doing the homework that needs to be done so badly, guilt for not doing the homework early like i told myself i would, eat, feel a little guilty for stopping at dairy queen to do so, a cherished moment of being able to work out here and there, lack of sleep, go to class, particularly geology to learn about dumb rocks, then home, then sleep hopefully, find a blessed moment to write colten a letter or two, check email/blog while wishing i could just easily delete my facebook because i dislike it so much, write another list of junk that i need to do before i move, feel a little guilty that i haven't done more to prepare to move, think about saving money, worry about getting a job in provo, hope that the job options come thru, (on a more serious note)-LOVING every monday morning email from my bestest friend and mi love colten, Love every letter i get, (especially when they are three pages instead of just two but i'm grateful when they are just two too) Loving and cherishing and feeling so much better when i go to institute classes, (back to bitter sarcasm), go to work, sit at desk and do homework and then stay up till weee hours of the mornin to close the theater, and then going home and doing none other than....dun duh duh dah....drum roll please....ta dah! HOMEWORK. BUT, then, when i do go to sleep its nice. me likey sleepy.
