Obviously I haven't been doing a great job at blogging this semester. I have so much to catch up on that I don't even know where to start...Soooo I won't be able to write about everything that has been happening. Sorry Mom!
I'm confused. I'm confused because this last month and a half at school has been the longest month and a half of my life...but at the same time, I am halfway done with this semester...and I'm coming home NEXT month. When this semester is over, I'll be done with my freshman year of college. That blows my mind. Now that I'm looking back, it seems like this year has gone by in a flash. Appreciate every moment.
While this has been the longest month and a half of my life, it has also been a very trying month and a half. Sometimes when we are so caught up in our busy lives that we don't take time to fully comprehend all that we have been blessed with.
I think I'm a semester late on the whole "getting adjusted to college" thing. Last semester, I really didn't have the typical homesickness and all that jazz, but I can assure you that now, I'm feelin' it. It's hard. It's really hard. My classes are a lot more challenging this semester, I miss my family, and I've just kind of been down in the dumps. I'm working really hard to get out of the dumps right now. Haha. And I'm making progress! I realized that I won't be here forever so I really just need to enjoy every second. I really am so blessed to go to this incredible school! There's something incredible about being in a place where you can constantly feel the Holy Ghost. I know this is where I'm supposed to be! I also realized that I am never alone. Heavenly Father is always going to be there for me and that is just so comforting! I'm not sure if any of you were able to watch the CES Fireside tonight, but Russell T. Osguthorpe spoke about the Savior and it was incredible! My favorite quote from his talk was:
"We cannot make it on our own in this life. We CANNOT do it."
Sorry this is a short blog post... Basically I'm just apologizing to my mom and my future self because we all know that we're the only ones who really care. ;)
Me and a few of my roommates went out with some new friends to Idaho Falls to go roller blading...in 70s clothes! It was way fun! I like making new friends.
OKAY, CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS? For those of you poor souls that do not know you this man is, let me introduce you. This, my dear friends, is Brooks Forester. Bachelorette celebrity. Please google him.
I'm not gonna lie, I really wasn't a huge fan of him on the show. Also, I thought he was severely ugly. Haha. And I could not, for the LIFE of me, understand why Des was so in love with this guy. But obviously, when I found out he was coming to Rexburg to have a meet and greet, I HAD to go. Why the HECK he was in Rexburg, Idaho, I have absolutely no clue. But I'm not questioning it...
Anyways, we walked into this place and I died. DIED. You guys. I cannot explain to you how beautiful he is. And this is coming from the girl who could barely stand to look at him on the television screen. Dude is NOT photogenic. Even in this picture I have with him you can't tell how attractive he is. You guys. You guys, you guys, you guys. B E A U T I F U L. You have to see it to believe it.
So that was that. I am still in complete shock that this whole thing happened. Wow.
Getting this snapchat from Trevor definitely put a huge smile on my face. What a guy!
I got a haircut :( RIP long hair.
Halloween was weird this year. Basically all we did was eat a crap ton of junk food and then we watched a scary movie. It was fun, just weird not being home!
Anyways, that's all I have for today. I'm going to try to do better with keeping up with this ol' thing. Have a great week everyone! Keep moving forward.
