Halloween Time

This is what we do in my apartment when we have a broken chair and spare time. Look how cute these guys are!

It's Alive!

I have a terrible problem keeping plants alive. BUT I have had this one for almost a year! I wanted to share this glorious accomplishment with you. It's alive! It might not be completely happy as you might see from the leaves, but it is alive and that is all that matters. Woot!

The other day my roommate and I went running. We stopped by a duck pond along the route. There was one duck all on its lonesome that wasn't in the water. I decided to approach. He ran. So, I started talking to him from afar and laying on heavy the compliments. It let me get close enough to ALMOST touch it. So close!
Then my roommate and I had to depart. I said my farewells and started to walk away. The duck followed. I stopped. It stopped. I ran, it ran. I think I made too deep of a friendship too quick. Life lesson anyone? But, now I have a friend I can visit, but I have to make sure it doesn't follow me home next time.
I love ducks. The end.

SO much LIFE!

Life is SO good I can't even describe it. But I'll try

First off, my apartment is fantastic. The girls I'm living with this year are great. We are all so different but mesh wonderfully. In the two months since school started we have already laughed together, cried together, laughed together, laughed together (yep, we laugh that much) and they have helped me through some of the most painful growing experience I've had. I can't rave about these girls enough. To give you a picture (literally).Yep. That's us (minus one).

I wanted to come to BYU for such a long time, and now its almost over. Granted I have 7ish months left. But its weird to think that all of this will be gone soon. But, I am grateful for my talent to sink my roots in deep even if it is only for a little while.
It seems like 2 years is "my time." When I left home I spent 2 years in Portsmouth, and now 2 years here. My next stop will also probably be around 2 years. But we'll see!

And oh what to see! I applied to Teach for America!!! I had an interview last week. I find out November 8th if I got in, and if I did get in, where I will be assigned to teach. Scary? Yes. Also, I'm applying to go to Ukraine next fall with my dear friend Giggles. And depending on what happens with Teach for America, I might be applying to PhD programs soon. Ah!!!! My future is here! Where I will be next fall? I have no clue. But I am excited for a new adventure.

And boys (insert giggle). Who ever actually knows what is happening in their own love life? Your guess is as good as mine. But, I like boys :)

I am bursting with gratitude, excitement, anticipation, nervousness, and joy.
My heart is full, and my cup runneth over.
