Mas! I hope this is entertaining....

My posts don't really have any exciting value because they are just one continual round of college adventures, but here are some more, I guess, and they even involve some of you. And also, I still don't know the most efficient or effective way of loading the pictures, so here they are, out of order.
Ally!! What could be better! Monroe was SO FUN and SO RELIEVING!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

More Family!!!! Driving to Monroe with Char and Bum was so fun, and a lot more successful than last time. LaDon, Jamie, Brooke and everyone else who isn't in this picture, it was great, great, great to see you all at the same time! And remember how great Christmas was, too!?

Bum and I had so much goodness at the football game, it was way better cheering with her than anyone else becuase she actually knows what's going on. And Sarahho stopped by to see us, which was joyous. Jamba afterwards!

These are pictures from True Blue Football, we look sick! But it was so much like nothing you've ever experienced!

Look in the background; all that blueness is all foam that mixed with the dirt as we swam in it and then we came out looking more green and barf than true blue. And those huge slides really are huge slides that were so fun!

But don't worry, all the fun I have isn't solely crazy things like Monroe visits and true blue and the likes; I wrote my first research paper and loved it, I took my first test in the testing center and LOVED it!!! (Who knew that when you go down to the screen to see your score, multiple people leave notes for long lost friends they glimpse in the room, but obviously can't talk to in the room! BYU only!) and I did my laundry for the first time (as manly... or ... womanly, i guess, as I tried to be , I had NO idea what I was doing. hahaha. I had to ask the boy next to me in the laundromat to help me! Bottom feeder!) and I'm experiencing my first shortage of substantial food. Honey bunches of oats and spaghetti, all the time. (Buy Low, here I come!) (At least I got peaches from the fruit stand before they left!)

And that's all! Thanks for viewing, I'll try to accomplish something more great so these posts can hold some substantial value!

You might not care, but here it is!

Here's some updates in random order because I still can't figure out blogging to perfection. But you will probably like all these stories and pictures anyways!
The game... was... miserable.
But so fuN!! We had AWESOME seats so it was kind of sad that it was such a bummer of a game becuase we were in the front row of the end zone! So fun! And Cosmo saw me try and take this picture for Bum and then started acting seductive and play flirty with us and we were weirded out and then he just hopped up right in front of us and wanted us to kiss his cheek, so Rachel did! I wish I had, oh well, I still chomped on a pig heart. (Secret; we think Cosmo's black!)

Chels and Rach and I at the game! It was joyous until it wasn't and then it stunk. Next time, though.
I'm a real live Y student now because I hiked it! We did it for FHE and it was so fun and I really am going to run up it in 14 minutes, so... hiya. It was great! And I did feel pretty good about my lungs becasue even local utah family members were huffing, but I was fond of Pikes Peak, so that was good.

Here they are in all their glory!!! The most wonderful roommates, and look, Rach is even doing Chelsea's nails! See, they don't really look that much alike, do they?
Haha! Thespian date! But World of Dance was AWESOME, I literally almost cried tears of joy because the tap dancers were SO SO Good and I was reinspired to fulfill the life dream that seems to be coming not so naturally to me.
Also another good story for your enjoyment; I had a date on which we were going to play frisbee golf and I wanted to go running before it, and on the run I wanted to wear my butt eccentuating pants that I wouldn't wear forever in public becuase they eccentuate my butt, but then I just wore them and loved it, and I was timid to wear them here, but I did and was just planning on running, then coming right home and jumping in the shower then going on my date. WELL, when I got home, already pushing the time when my date was coming to get me, our door was broken and we couldn't get it and the maintenance guy had to come, but before he did, my date did and my butt was just eccentuated!! AA! hahha, so I stood against the wall and tried not to make any sudden movements and then just ran inside and then went on the date with free flowing shorts. Don't wear butt eccentuating pants if you are going on a date becuase you might get caught.
And I saw the prophet and I visited the Bean Museum and I slept in and I went to the temple and I checked out my first books from Harold and I went grocery shopping and I did my laundry and it's officially and immediately fall here and I love that campus is a free flowing place where you can sit wherever the heck you want and not a soul will care so I randomly pick a building and find a nook and study my little head off!
And that's all, nothing really too interesting, but I can't wait for this weekend!!! bEcuase remember how purely wonderful Christmas was!!! So joyous, it will be so fun!

Hooray for 5k!

Hooray hooray! First 5k as a college student today, and keeping with my tradition I only had about 5 hours of sleep! It was a free race for Abuse Prevention and I got a free shirt and free fun and happiness all around! Before we ran I said to the boys that did it with me YOU CAN WIN IT!!!

They didn't. But I did.
Thanks, Dad! They also handed out free rape whistles (that's what's in my mouth) and the course wasn't exactly the right length, but it was SO FUN! I love races and they even had the oranges afterward, and I got to feel the feeling of already having run a race and coming home to an apartment full of sleeping people! Hooray hooray!

Here I Am!

Because I really did cherish CJ's great college advice, I have started a blog since that was her #4 piece of advice. It will probably be updated about as often and consistently as Charina's! But, here, at least, is a brief synopsis of my BYU life thus far; certainly not all inclusive, but at least highlighting some good parts!

My roommate Elise! I got 3 GREAT roommates and I didn't have a picture of the Rachel and Chelsea, but know they are wonderful and squeal a lot! We are loud, authentic girls, all of us together!

The lighting is really poor on this picture, but here are about 90 name tags of mine from all the ward things I've attended. We even wear nametags to church! It's really helpful, but also just funny to me that everywhere I go I need a nametag!

Two lessons I've already learned: 1) The parking lots in Wyview are all very much downhill
2) When you buy a bag of peaches from the fruit stand, don't keep it in the paper bag and expect to carry it home on your bike. When you go over the Wyview parking lot speed bumps, they will spill everywhere and quickly roll down the downhill Wyview parking lots. If you are lucky, the car driving buy will charitably give you a BYU bookstore bag to put your asphalt impaled peaches in so you can go the extra 5 feet you had left till you go to your apartment!

This is a nice lanyard. I once had a whole trashload of keys on their at home, but since I only had a house key out here, the lanyard was just extraneous baggage when i ran out the door to go to the OU football game. (WE WON BY THE WAY!) Don't take your key off your lanyard and out it in your pocket if you are expecting to jump up and down University Ave all the way home from such a victory. You will not be in possession of your key much longer. Or thirty dollars much longer after that.

My tap dance shoes! Can you say life dream fulfilled?

I can't!!! I'm the worst tap dancer in the whole class and i really struggle with the moves and my teacher goes really fast and it is hard, hard, hard. But it's really fun, and it's a life dream; if I can pray around a flag pole, wear a skirt to school, stick some gum under a desk, and run up Pikes Peak, I can learn how to tap dance!

So there you have it! Who knows what's to come, but I hope you can enjoy whatever does on this blog!
