This is for you, Emma. :]



The Hoodie-Footie Snuggle Suit.
Made with marshmallow-soft-fleece.
It's definitely on MY Christmas list. 
Ooooooh Baby!

Big.

I feel poetic today.
Write write write, but nothing flows.
I am thrilled.
I am thrilled to catch
A glimpse of all that can be.
All that I can create. 
I can't wait to begin.
I'm almost late.
It's started.
I've begun.
Go Big.
The electric blanket is
The only thing holding you back.
You're still allowed to visit home,
But go Big.
Be Bold.
Don't hold back.
You'll find a new blanket.
Become a True Aggie.
It doesn't matter what you do, 
Just go BIG.
And don't forget your grin.

I feel poetic today.
Write write write, but nothing flows.
I am thrilled.

Things I've been missing lately.

Living at a lake.
Reading for fun.
When running came easy.
Best friends lived close by.
Curry everywhere.
Writing.
Holding hands.
Passing notes.
Dancing my feet to death.
Accidentally whipping my friends in the face with my hair.
Spooning parties.
Raspberries in the backyard.
When I was invincible.
Falling asleep in the middle of the house.
Mary.
Standing up at football games.
Sitting in trees for hours.
Laughing 'till it hurts.
Singing with my siblings in the car.
Wearing a watch.
Jordan River Parkway.
Nutella.
Warm weather.
Doodling.
India.
Playing in the park.
Braces.

Just joking about the braces. :]

Just for fun.

26ThingsYouMayOrMayNotKnowAboutRebeccaAnnCarlisle.
  1. My favorite domesticated animal would have to be a dog. Nondomesticated? Either an elephant or giraffe.
  2. My favorite mythological character is the hippogryph.
  3. I was born in Ogden, Utah.
  4. I've always said that the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. It's not. I just love that around this holiday, I can count on seeing and spending time with those who mean the most to me.
  5. I've refused to have a job this semester. My occupation is strictly student...and everything that comes with that. :) 
  6. I have six toes on one foot.
  7. I've always been SO proud of the fact and happy that my older sister and I are two years and two days apart. I'm SO glad I wasn't born the day before her birthday. "We're one year and three hundred sixty-four days apart."
  8. I'm horrible at texting people back!
  9. When I introduce people, I often make up things about them to see their reaction. 
  10. I am currently singing in the College of Southern Idaho Madrigals Ensemble.
  11. I have never died my hair.
  12. I have a LOT of silver/white hairs that no one can see unless I move my hair around and point it out.
  13. I sucked my thumb until I was almost nine years old.

  20. But... My real love is Harry Potter of the books, not the movie.
  21. I pretend to be tough sometimes just so people will believe it. Like... I'll eat hot food and pretend it doesn't even phase me, or I'll run into something and get a huge bruise but pretend nothing even happened. So... yeah. It really is SO spicy and I almost die, and I really have to work hard to not let my eyes water from running into that corner. I'm not that tough.
  22. More than anything, I love my family, and my Savior.
  23. I have donated my hair twice to locks of love, and when it gets long enough I will again.
  24. I like to be funny and make up silly jokes, but I'm not very good at it.
  25. When I was running for Student Senate, my slogan was "Vote for Becca, Vote for Sunshine." Now, people are calling me sunshine, and I love it! I love to be every one's sunshine.
  26. I've been thinking for the last couple minutes about the BEST twenty-sixth fact EVER that I could put, but nothing even comes to mind...
So. There you are. 26ThingsYouMayOrMayNotKnowAboutRebeccaAnnCarlisle.

:] I hope it wasn't TOO boring.

Report:

So. Lucky me, I had a whole weekend to dress up as something new each day! My indecisiveness wasn't even necessary.
I got to dress up as...
  • a 'bag lady.' ;] (Dances)
  • a nerd. (Kids' carnivals)
  • a zombie creepy girl. (Haunted house)
  • AND on Sunday, I wore my polka-dot-skirt and was secretly dressed up as Twister. (Church, of course)
Unfortunately, I only have photos of my 'bag lady' and zombie costumes.
Here they are. Click to magnify the images.


I was this "man's" date.

Crazy kids.

Blooooooody!

The haunting crew. Ahhh!

Needless to say, it was a great Halloween weekend. :]

Halloween Emergency!

I have two Halloween dances tonight, they both start in four hours!

That is NOT even my emergency!

Okay, I don't really have any emergency.

I just think it's interesting that we're coming so close to both events, and I still have no idea what how I'm going to dress up.
Will I be a nerd, doll, super hero, Indian (from India), or something else... like static cling?

I wanted to make a dress out of black trash bags and be trash, but my mom doesn't support that idea. I think she probably knows best. ;] It just would have been fun to make a trash bag dress.

But I know I'm not trash.

ANYWAY. I'll keep you posted. Whatever I'm going to be, It's gonna be good. ( I hope! )

Wish me luck.

Into words. Kind of.

Putting feelings into words isn't always what I'm best at.
My heart feels light, and heavy all in the same instant.

I'm content.
happy and glad.
melancholy.
concerned.
worn out.
impatient.
so busy.
cheerful.
antsy.
blessed.

Blessed is what is most prominent in my feelings. I am so blessed. We are on this earth, and in this life to be tested. If it were easy, it wouldn't really be a test, right? That's what I keep trying to remind myself. I am so very blessed.

Mom.
Dad .
Mary.
Emma.
Benny.
Family.
Splendid friends.
Wonderful opportunities.
All of these tests.
Electric blanket.
My Savior.

Thank you, all.

I hope this works.

In my family, my Mom sometimes has favorite children. Right now, her favorite is my sister, Mary Christine.
Why is she the favorite? Well, that's simple. She's been keeping her blog WAY more up to date than I have, and she lives in Provo.With a mother-daughter relationships, "distance makes the heart grow fonder," definitely applies. So... Mary, I hope you've been enjoying your time as favorite, but... I'm blogging Right Now. and I'll be moving to Twin Falls soon... so... Like I said, Enjoy it. :]

So... Mom, Here I am, blogging to be your favorite. :] I hope it works.

I love you, Mom.
I just don't know what to say that you haven't already heard.

So... I'll keep thinking and get back to you ;)
I feel good about that.

((Disclaimer: My Mom jokes about having a favorite, and that I'm not currently favorite because I haven't blogged and she really would like a post. It's just a joke, the 'favorite' part. I know her love for me isn't really based on whether I blog or not, and that she doesn't really have favorite children. But... she DOES want more posts.))

Weaving and Mending.

You may already know.. I've been living up at Redfish Lake this summer, working full-time, as a Nanny. I've been here since the end of May, and have one week left.

Where has the time gone??

I'm finding, as I have more and more life experiences, that time is always relative, and whether it is observed or not, looking back, it always runs out more quickly than expected. This can be pleasant, or not. For me, it always is a taste of bitter-sweet. One when tasted multiple times becomes a kind of beautiful. A flavor that makes a person want to weep and rejoice at the very same time.

In a bitter-sweet way, more sweet than bitter, this summer has been a summer of healing, and growth. Physically, emotionally, socially, mentally, spiritually, family-ally... in every 'ally' way. I would touch on all these ways but alas, time is short and it would be wise for me to get to sleep soon.

My Grandmother once shared with me, from an anonymous author,
"The weaving and mending of lives that some may become perfected is the challenge of our talents and the joy of eternities." 
This has been the theme of my summer of two thousand and ten. Weaving, and mending. Mending, and weaving.

Goodness, My time is running out.
Time.
Time time time.

As this summer comes to a close, I want to weep and rejoice. I also have a taste of a bitter-sweet; The sweet definitely outweighs the bitter.
I'm weaving and mending. Mending and weaving. and it. is. beautiful.

I am grateful.

I am grateful for many things. Today, I am especially grateful for...
  • My parents, for their unconditional love and support. With EVERYTHING. They always know what I need and are so very good at loving me. 
  • My siblings. They are my best friends. :) I got to talk with them all today, and I get to have a plaaayyyyyy date with them this week! I cannot wait.
  • The wonderful example my Grandmas have set for me, of strength, love, and light. 
  • Music that makes my soul dance.
  • The smell of rain.
  • Good shampoo!
  • The love the Lord has given me to share. 
  • My job. The family I work with is amazing, and it will give me what I need so I won't need to work during the school year. 
  • Jerome. It's taught me to take it easy. As easy as I can :). I'm always out and about, doing way more things than I should be able to handle. Living in Jerome has helped me take a step back. I've learned to actually smell the roses. 
  • The opportunity to sing in Church today! It's not until 5:00pm.We're singing 'Be Still My Soul' and I'm glad to share the spirit that comes with that lovely song. 
  • Love. again. The love I have for my friends, my family, those I work with. The love others have for me, especially my Savior. Love makes my world go round.
  • My flip-flop tan line. It's the first legitimate tan line of. my. life.
  • I am grateful for the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
  • I'm grateful for the knowledge that I am a child of God, a God in embryo.  
  • My roommates, and the wonderful girls that come in my room just to be there. It is so splendid having them around. They are my new favorite friends :).
  • Goodness, I am grateful for Smiley faces. :)
Hmmmm. I'm just feeling grateful today. :)

Belly-flop Contest.

I AM SO HUNGRY.

I am so so so very hungry! It's a little after one o'clock in the morning, and really, I need some fooooood!

Here at Redfish, I do have an adequate supply. . . they feed us three hearty meals a day, in my room I've got Chocolate Cheerios's, Cheese-it's, Dr. Pepper, Marshmallows, cookies, water, whole wheat Club Crackers, everything a girl could ever wish for. Really, there are PLENTY of munchies. The only problem is. ..


My wisdom teeth were just extracted on Friday, and it HURTS and is NOT GOOD FOR ME to eat all the crunchy munchies!! Oooooh. Can you imagine the injuries???

a;lsdkfja;lsdjf;poaiwjekl;jcxv.j!!!!

That is my frustrated stomach.
I guess I'll just have to wait to please it in the morning.

Really, I am SO SO HUNGRY!

(Rumble, rumble, rumble. . .)

Goodness, I just hope I can go to sleep with this irritating belly of mine.

Beautiful.
PIZZA and a Strawberry Shake . So good!

Dear Mom,

Dear Mom,

I made it to Redfish! Safe and sound.

I set up my room with all the new additions, and I've already had someone comment on my 'pink' liking. Ha. :) The color just fits.

Also, my teeth are feeling very much better thanks to Tylenol, Ibuprofen, the sensitive toothpaste Dad gave me, and that wonderful mouth numbing gel you purchased. THAAAAnK YOU. Holy moley. I thought I was going to die. Blasted white strips.

I'm about to go to bed. I already miss you. Not too much :) , I just wish I could call, you know. Even in Stanley, I don't get good reception. I checked. I drove into town today to call, and it kept saying "EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY." I was bummed.

ANYWAY. I need your e-mail address, please. You can message it to me on Facebook through the Facebook messages or something. Not posting it on my wall.

Um... Oh! I have a friend! :) Her name is Jessica, and I realllly have been enjoying her company.

Well, I'll be sure to post more of my adventures for you. And I'll e-mail you. I'll even give you a call sometime. :)

I'm happy, and I love you.

Love, Boo.

PS. I'm sorry this was such a 'me' letter. :) When it's not so public, I'll make it more conversational. Okay? Okay. I knew you understood.

Two mistakes.

Blah.

I made two mistakes.

  1. My tummy realllllly hurt on the 27th at about 11:30pm. I was being social. My tummy reallllllyyyyy hurt. So. I asked for some pain killers, you know, Tylenol...Ibuprofen... either would be great! They only had Excedrin on hand. It made it tooooo hard to fall asleep! I should have just not taken them because it was so late. I could have toughed it out. Mistake: I took caffeinated aspirin WAY too late in the evening.
  2. Since I couldn't fall asleep, I decided it was the perfect time to search for my Eagle OneCard; the necessary card that determines how I receive the money from my scholarships. Welp, I searched and searched. It's lost. I lost it. I probably threw it away. It will cost me an unfortunate fee to replace it. Mistake: I misplaced and maybe threw away my Eagle OneCard.

Soo. . . what's the consequence? I get to sleep less! :) OOooh baby. My favorite! I get to work harder to be cheerful! Wooooohoooo! I can do it. No big. Blah. I don't like when it's hard to sleep, or when I lose things. Grumble, grumble, grumble. !
On the sunny side, my tummy doesn't hurt anymore. Ugh. I can be cheerful. Promise. :) I'm actually looking forward to the adventure!

Good night, readers. Actually, Good morning :)

P.S. I'm only on my blog/the Internet BECAUSE I was researching how to get a new Eagle OneCard. You know. Quick blog.

Adventures in Nannying. :)

I began my nannying career Monday, May 17, 2010.

To name a few adventures I've had so far...
  • Cute McCall (the 5 year old) and I went on a four leaf clover hunt. The first day, after about a half an hour of hunting, we found one! Lucky? Very. :)
  • The next day, we found twelve! ( We went through a LottTT of clovers.)
  • She got liquid orange food coloring all over one of her nicest pairs of jeans. 
  • I got it all out within 15 minutes. Good ol' 'workreallyfast', dish soap, water, and oxy clean. 
  • I introduced PeanutButter and Pickle sandwiches to the youngest four kids. Only the oldest of the bunch was brave enough to try it. and..... he loves them! 
  • McCall and I were weeding, and we got to sing primary songs together. THEN we just started making up our own. "Smash smash smash! I'm smashing the weeeeeds and we're pulling them out because we don't like weeeds! Smash smash, pull pull, kill the weeeds!"
  •  She also shamed me at hide and go seek. :)
There have been a lot of lovely adventures.

Basically. . . I have the best summer job in the world :)

More adventures to come!

i quit f-book

I'll be honest, it probably won't be forever... I don't think it needs to be, but I've been wanting to go on a Facebook fast for quite a while now.

So, I did it.

I (temporarily) quit f-book.

I'm going to make this a game, similar to, "how long can you hold this book above your head?"
I'm going to see how long I can not participate in Facebook.

It already feels so very good :)

Close. (The word that sounds like clothes.)

As my semester comes to a close, I am content. I'm content for a few reasons. . .
  1. I've realized, I can do it! I've analyzed what I've got, and my load really isn't too much for me. I am capable!
  2. I've got my fambily support. I am so very blessed to have the fambily I have. Anyone else would not be quite as perfect for me. We love each other very berry much. They are my berry favorite friends.
  3. I have new adventures on my way! For example: This summer I will be nanny-ing for a wonderful family up at Redfish Lake and Lodge in Stanley, Idaho. I'll live up there. In employee housing. I'm growing up! New adventures keep coming my way every single day. Woo-hoo!
  4. I have an 'A' in Math! I attend about 50% of the time. . . Okay, more like 65%. It just is SOOO HARD to attend this class! THANK GOODNESS it hasn't harmed my grade. :) I'm just good at Math, I suppose.
  5. Uh. . . A boy just waved to me, and I didn't know if he was waving at me or not, but I think he was so I just waved back. I think it's my friend Joel or someone. Ha. That's what I get for not wearing my corrective eye lenses. I can't tell who anyone is. (It was Joel.)
  6. I am rooted in the truth. I know no matter how crazy things get with finals, and life, and everything I'm trying to do that I ultimately KNOW what's right! That is a wonderful feeling.
  7. ALSO. I love daffodils, and pickles, and rain, and the sunshine, and lovely sundresses, and my family, and my Savior, and my life.
Would you like to hear a joke I made up? [Sorry if you've heard it before!]

Q.What did one tree say to the other tree?

American Honey

I keep on getting these new theme songs.
Right now, my theme song is American Honey, by Lady Antebellum. It's at the bottom of my playlist on the right of this page if you'd like to listen to it..

Well, today as I listened to this song, one of the sentences stuck out at me... where it says, ".. She couldn't wait to get goin', but wasn't quite ready to leave.."

I know how this feels.
I can't wait to get going.
There are a lot of reasons for this...
I sometimes feel like real life will start when I get going.
["Get going" can be defined as moving to a University. Living away from home. Growing up.]
Sometimes, I get lonely.
I imagine moving away as something that will magically give me close more permanent friends again.
I sometimes fear that me not 'going' has made me miss out on valuable growing up experiences.
al;ksjadkl;fjoizxp.
I get so, SO antsy in this small town life.

But the thing is... I know I'm not ready to leave.
Every day, I find I've been blessed for staying in Jerome.
I know this is where the Lord would have me be, for this bit of time.
I have some 'growing up' to do here.
I need my family.
There are people here that will help me to become the best Becca I can be.
There is still a lot to learn.
Patience, for example. :]

I know the Lord would have me be here.

Now this is where choice comes in.
I am going to choose to remember my Heavenly Father, and my family. They love me. :) I know it. I also am going to choose to love wherever I am. I may get lonely, and antsy, and want to get going... But I know I'm not ready to leave.
I've got things to do still, and a lot to learn.

This is going to be a party. :]
Because I am choosing it.

dksajhklaj :) :)

Copy Cat. (With a few additions :] )

As many of you know... My whole life, I've wanted to be just like my older sister Mary. Why? Who knows?! That's a mystery to us all. JOKE! ;)

WELL. There are a lot of reasons. Mary is....
Beautiful. She loves people pretttty unconditionally. She is very creative. She's interested in learning new things. Coloring. Doing handstands. Writing. Art. Music. She wishes her life could be a musical, and sometimes it is. She likes to pretend she can dance. She will forever be a five yearold at heart, and the most important things in her life are her family (I'm included there) and her Savior. Really, ask her, and she'll tell you how it is. Okay, okay, and maybe London too.

So! Back to me wanting to be like Mary... Sometimes, I act on that desire, and SOMETIMES, it's called being a copy cat. Like now. If you look at 'Mary Christine's blog on the right side of this very page, you'll find out why I'm a copy cat. ;)

. . . . . . . . . .

One year, seven months, and twenty-eight days. That's how long I've been living in the Magic Valley.

Things I didn't expect to fall madly in love with:
1. The stars at night.
2.Sllllllllloooowwww traffic.
3. The odd smell of the country :S (Don't hold that against me!)
4. Squirrels. Everywhere.
5. Everybody going to every game even when they aren't related to anyone playing.
6. My 80's home.
7. Falling asleep on the back porch.
8. My parents knowing EVERYBODY. (All my friend's parents)
9. My mom being a teacher for my senior year of high school.
10. Beautiful fields full of wheat, and corn, and barley, and potatoes, and everything else they grow out here.
11.The Twin Falls Temple.
12. The sunsets.
13. My family.
14. The College of Southern Idaho (Sometimes :] )
15. Five dads. Sometimes six, and sometimes even seven!
16. Rocky Top Cloggers
17. 50 cents for allowance.
18. Napping on Gma's couch.


Things I didn't expect to miss:
1. Playing in the park.
2. The Jordan Parkway.
3.Going on dates sometimes twice a week.
4. School Spirit.
5. Holding hands with girls in friendship.
6. Living in a circle, (Coldesac?)
7. Not having to explain my humor.
8. Three musketeers, dynamic duos, soul mates, being in a 'sisterhood', triplets, quadruplets, partners in crime.
9. Gazebos
10. Having a smaller house and falling asleep in the very middle of it.
11. 'Ratio' discussions in Sunday school
12. Competittttiiiivvvvve clogging.
13. Sharing a room.


Things I surprisingly don't miss:
1. The IMAX theatre.
2. Shopping places alllll over.
3. Eh, lets be honest. I surprisingly don't' miss some people :)
4. Being younger than 18
5. Club fees.
6. Jamba Juice. (Well, sometimes I do, but if I don't think about it, it's alllll good.)
7. Being soooo busy and spread soooo thin.

Another New Post

Sometimes... I feel a little obligated to blog. You ask Why? Well, I honestly don't know. I could begin to analyze this. ... . But I'll spare you. :) ALSO - My apologies if it's scattered and hard to follow. I guess if you don't like it it's your fault for reading it, eh? :)

I just got finished writing Mary a novel of an email. In it, I said, "...What else shall I tell you....? School is going well. It's pretty tough. Just because I'm a busy girl and it's a pretty tough task finding the time for all I would like to do. I also realllllly like not going to class. That can be a problem. I'm going to run a 5k tomorrow at 9:am to make up two absences for my triathlon class.. I love our family. I miss them. I'm barely home and I DON'T LIKE THAT. I'm not home, because I'm always working or schooling or instituting or ambassadoring. LIFE! It's a beast, but Mary, I love it. :) I love you."

That's what has been mostly on my mind these days.
School=Hard work.
Time=Not enough to go around.
Attendance=I could definitely do better.
Family=I miss them a lot. Even though we sleep in the same house.
Life=It's a beast, but I love it.

a;dkllak;gjnza;leak;ljafskj;l
That's a little of how I feel today.
Overwhelmed.
I shouldn't let these silly stresses get to me. After all, the sun is shining again, and daffodils are in bloom. :)

Life is beautiful.

A song that is temporarily my favorite.

I feel like I can relate to this song. A lot, sometimes :)
Read the lyrics, and you'll be able to understand me better.
Or not. **

Skeleton Song - Kate Nash

Skeleton you are my friend
But you are made of bone
And you have got no flesh and blood
Running through you to help protect the bone

Skeleton we have been friends for years
And you have seen me through some trials
And tribulations and some tears
But everybody thinks I'm weird

And I should have known
That it wouldn't be long
Until you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do

Skeleton we are so close
But you have got no body
So why do you insist on wearing clothes

Skeleton when we were young
It was easy
Even though the other kids
They would tease me
But I was only seven I had you
But now I'm twenty-two

And now it's different, when I take you out
And you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do

And sometimes at night,
I dream of the most terrible things
I take a hammer and I creep out of bed
And I raise it high
And I smash your head
Fibular and tubular
And ribs and cages, too
In fact, while I'm here
I'll smash the whole of you

Smaaaaaaaaaaash !

But Skeleton, you are my friend
And I could never bring your life to an end
Yes Skeleton you are, you are my friend
And I will be there for you until the end

And even though, when I take you out
You've got me, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
I could, I could never let you go

And that is all I know
And that is all I know
And that is all I, that is all I know
And that is all I know, know

** Okay, okay. I don't really relate to this song. But it does make me smile. I'd say I can relate to it a little . . . it's just a funny/weird song that I like . . . and I kind of wanted to post something on my blog. :) My next post will be better, I pinky promise. If you get the chance, listen to this song. Okay? Okay.

CherryendswithacapitalTandthatrimeswithPandthatstandsforMary

Dear Cherry,

As we both know, you are the only one who really reads my blog, so I'm going to post this one just for YOU.

A few exciting things happened today that I thought you should know about.

  1. I thought the bank stole my money. They actually didn't. I deposited my last check from NAPA on Saturday, and it still hasn't shown up on my account balances yet. Dad said it's because it takes one to two (1-2-2. Ha.) business days for it to clear. PHEEWWWW! For now, I believe, the bank has not stolen my money. With today's world you never can be sure...
  2. I changed my shirt IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARKING LOT today. Wow, huh? It's just... for reasons that should not be mentioned on a public blog, It wasn't acceptable today. I just wanted to wear my tie-dye one instead, really. (Tie-die, for me is just like comfort food is for other people.) ANYWAY. With the mad skills you taught me when we were wee (weeeeeee!) little girls, I was able to change into my new shirt WITHOUT showing my tummy, or even my shoulders. That takes skillllllll.
  3. I forgot shoes to school today. One may ask, "How in the world do you do that??" Well, I'm not really a fan of shoes, and I had my swimming class first, so! I didn't wear shoes. Who knew I'd need them for the rest of my classes? But don't worry, though I didn't find any socks, I did (luckily) have a pair of old (slightly less fashionable) running shoes in the back to protect my feetlings. (Hahahaha. Feetlings. Remember you are not a fan of my feetlings?)
  4. I love you. Every day, I think of you. Yes, yes, YOU. If I was Napoleon, and you were Pedro, I'd do a dance so everyone would vote for you for president. You'd win.

Those are my main stories, though I could think of more if I really wanted to. This is already a novel, so I won't. I'll just tell them to you next time you instant message me when I'm in class or something.

I loveeeee you.

Love, Pomegranate.

MIKAAAAAA!

Dear Becca,

First off, I've abducted your blog. mwahaha.

Now, the reason I am here now: as you may recall, in your honor, I went to the Mika concert. Before this December, I didn't exactly like Mika. You know that. But then we got his second CD and you abducted me and drove me around into the boonies blasting "Blue Eyes". Maybe it was you, maybe it was the stars that night, maybe it was because Mom made me go with you...I don't know why but a seed was planted that day. A seed of Mika. As time passed, the seed just sat there until I went to London and started missing you. One day the ache in my heart was so great that I had to listen to the music you love. The seed started to grow a little bit. After a few of these moment of weakness, I found out my bunkmate was a huge fan of Mika. This only added to my interest, and I opened my heart a little more, to let the guy have a chance. After 29 days, the seed grew into a flower. And I really liked Mika. This leads me to Monday. Seeing him on stage, this really like turned into love. And as he sang "We are Golden" and gold confetti rained from the ceiling, the love was cemented. It was one of my favorite performances since I've been here, and definitely my favorite concert ever. My friends and I definitely stood out as crazy Americans. The majority of the Brits wore dark street clothes, and they stood rather still .We jumped, sang, screamed, danced, and dressed to impress(ish). Becca, I hope you know, this was in your honor. 57% of my love for Mika and my joy from this occasion was actually love for you.
Love,
Mary

NOTE TO FOLLOWERS OF BECCA: Becca is cool, and smells like pomegranates. mmmm.

Today I Live

Yesterday, in Relief Society, we had a wonderful lesson. Basically... It was about how sometimes we get bogged down by the world. Do we look right? Are we living up to par? Am I doing what everybody expects me to do? We don't take time to remember the things that truly matter to us and really make us happy. We were all given pieces of paper and colored pencils to wright about what we live for today.

Today, I live...
(For)

Sunsets
Helping those who just need a hug.
To share my Light
Yellow
Sand between my toes
My heritage
Rain
My savior
The Truth
Happiness
My family
Love
The Gospel
A runner's high
My Orphans
Daffodils
Beautiful smiles
No Shave November
Silliness
My future Family
Laughter
New Clogging Shoes
Sunshine
Dancing like crazy in the kitchen

There are so, so many things I live for.
I only wish I could put them all on this list.

Today, I live for Life, and Life is beautiful. :)

Okay, okay. . .

I decided not to audition for Beauty and the Beast. I had a hard time when I was going to school full time, working part time, and teaching clogging. My grades seriously suffered and I didn't get adequate sleep and I wasn't happy. I think it would probably be wise for me to keep it simple with just school and clogging this semester. Choices, choices.. :)

School starts tomorrow!! I am SOOOOOOOO very excited. Exclamation mark ! Really, I can't even wait. :D

I'm taking a lot of classes!

Fundamentals of Oral Communication: 3 credits
English Composition 2: 3 Credits
College Algebra: 3 Credits
Ethics: 3 Credits
Voice Lessons for Non-Majors: 1 Credit
Training for a Triathlon: 2 Credits
Book of Mormon: LDS Institute Class
Principles of Leadership: LDS Institute Class
(Maybe) Mission Prep: LDS Institute Class

But really, I cannot even WAIT to be a student again :) :)

Tomorrow.

Tomorrow I may or may not (probably more on the may side of the table) audition for Dilettantes of the Magic Valley's production of Beauty and the Beast. Hmm... We'll see I guess :)

Wishhh meee luckkk!

Lets be honest, Belle would be ideal. Realistically, I hope I at least make it as an ensemble member.
And that I don't evaporate from being busy.

Goodness gracious..

If I did get to be Belle, I would want the Beast to turn into a bea-u-tiful prince. I'm just sayin'.

Read This:

I just thought you should know, there is not a mousey in my bedroom. Hooray :)

Friday, January 8, 2010

January 8, 2010 1:32AM

I'm still awake. Why?? Crazy Becca.

Mom said hat we have a mousey in the basement. My room is in the basement. Creepy. Mom also inferred that the mousey may (or-may-not) be nesting in my clothes piles in my room. Creepy-er. Actually, that may just be creepy-est. (I do know how to spell creepier and creepiest. I just like to hyphenate the word.) (Words?)

Mary left for London yesterday. The 7th of January. I may-or-may-not be able to talk vocally with her for four months. The likelihood of me getting to voice-to-voice talk with her is probably more on the may-not side of the table. Sadddddd. I miss her already.

Today is my half birthday. I am now eighteen and a half. 18 1/2! Yesssssss....... :) Victory.

That's all for now folks.
