It's been a while

Yes, I know. I suck at blogging. I enjoy reading everyone else's blog much more than writing up my own. Anyhow, a little mix:

Thanksgiving:
Thanksgiving was great! I went up to Rexburg to spend it with Ryan. We made our own dinner and everything. I was really nervous about the turkey, but it turned out just fine. We each made something for the table.

Okay, so I guess we didn't have any dishwasher soap, so Ryan thought he'd be clever and use regular soap...The outcome?....




Christmas

So, for Christmas, Ryan came down to Provo. We went and spent Christmas Eve Night and Day with some really good friends of his down here, Adam and Hayley. They were so fun to spend it with. We also go to go to my brother's place for a little bit and say Hi. It was a good Christmas!

We also went out to dinner with Adam and Hayley to a Japanese restaurant. It was really neat!







My baby brother, Jarom, came to visit utah for Christmas and I took him snowboarding for his first time. I think he had a blast, but I almost though he was going to kill himself with how fast he would go down the hill because he "couldn't controll his board". ;)

"OUCH"


Exhausted!

I think, besides the soreness and exhaustion, we had a blast!


Almost Forgot!...

...To mention school! By the way...I went back to school last semester. I'm attending UVU right now, Pre-Nursing. Last semester, I took Chemistry (from Jolene Young, best teacher I've ever had), a Chem lab, and Nutrition. That's 8 credits, and 40 hours a week at work. It's hard. I just started up this next semester taking Biology, Bio lab, Into to Nursing, and English-technical writing. 9 Credits and 40 hours at work. It's hard, but it's still fun. My roommates never see me, and everyone wonders why...I love being back in school. It makes me feel like I am progressing somewhere in life. I can apply to Nursing School after this semester. UVU is the #1 Nursing School in Utah, so I will try for it, but the plan is to apply a lot of different places. Ideally, UVU is where I want to go... So, I will also apply for the spring semester next year. I'm not sure what area I want to work in as a nurse, but I do know that I at least want to be a surgical nurse of some kind, assisting in surgery. I love that kind of stuff! Anyhow, it's a long update, and I'll do my best to keep on top of things from now on!
