I had ben sad for a while, but it seems to have gone away now, which is great and MUCH appreciated.
Me and amy actually got to go to the temple together today, and i didn't even miss class--wasn;t even late!  I was sure I was going to, but it all worked out.

This week has been really hard for several reason; some i can't pin down, some i don't want to admit, and some that i can't really explain.

I know that there have already been like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 blessings in my life--even just this summer--but sometimes I get into a bad funk and i can't get myself out for a while.  The best way for me to deal with it is just to talk about it.  
A lot.  
thanks to all the people that have ever listened.
No one things really triggered it this time.  I think it was a few things.  I don't really know, but I do know that I don't want it anymore.

I need to set it free.

that is why i am going to make a list of all the things that I am grateful for, and list of the things i need to remember.

revenge is a dish best served cold.

I don't have it out for anyone, i just think that is a beautiful statement.


This has been one of the most fun filled and crazy weeks of my life. Utah and back in less that 25 hours. My sister went into the MTC. Acoustic cafe.


Today i skipped religion today to do homework; I probably could have gone. I was going to go, but the very last second something told me to stay.
As i was in the lab working though, I started talking to the girl next to me about missions and dating and boys and settling. What she told me was exactly what i needed to hear, and it was so cool because it was from a stranger, not just my friends telling me what i want to hear.
We really need to be willing to be friends with everyone and talk to everyone because you never know when you could be answering someones prayer.

The sundays in rexburg just keep out doing themselves.  I am so glad that there was the CES fire side tonight.
Today I had two huge testimony boosters and i am grateful for them.
6 words was all it took. "Thank you for bearing your testimony".  6 words and an avalanche of revelation followed.
thank you for being my catalyst.

On a less spiritual note, i got running shoes this weekend and im starting this week off with a bang and turning summer 09 into fit fest 09!
im getting in shape this summer.

you're just jealous cause we're young and in love.

i cant remember what number I am on...

This summer is already crazy. I love all of my classes but I am in the l.i.b. constantly. It's all work I like though so i don't really mind doing it all day. I really want to try and get straight As this semester, and make my mom proud. She said if i do she will let me bring her camera out to school and take a photography class with it :).
It's really nice to be able to go to one house and see everyone, even if it is sad not being able to live there myself. I think it will all work out though. I love rexburg and all of the people here. I really have been so lucky with all the friends that I have made here; sometimes I really don't know how i got so lucky.
I'm sorry that I'm such a recluse sometimes. I just have a lot on my mind unually and I havent learned how to get it to stop yet. I didn't use to be this way, but i crashed a lot more then. I think I'm still just learning how to balance everything, but the one thing i have learned with out a shadow of a doubt is when you make time for church things, it gets easier to organize the rest too.
I really have learned a lot in the last year and I feel like I've mad some pretty radicle changes. Maybe they aren't noticable to others, but I can tell.

Summer 09. Choose your own adventure.
