What is my problem??

Ok. so i know i am 24. i know that i am about to obtain a Bachelor's in Music. So why do i love boy bands so much? You got me. The music is technically not amazing or new, but something about them just makes me happy. So, introducing a new favorite of mine.....V-FACTORY! (yeah, lame name, but awesome music!) I would like to thank my advanced Jazz teacher, Sister Bone for introducing this band to me. We are dancing to this song for the showcase next week. So here you go. Know it, Live it, Love it....

Dear Sister Holmes....

I have recieved my mission call! I recieved it on Nov. 5th, the day after my birthday! I have been called to serve in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission. I report to the MTC Feb.10th! I am really excited. I know some might want to hear the story, so here it goes:

I decided pretty swiftly that i wanted/need to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The day after i decided to go, i go the swine flu, so that gave me a LOT of free time. I got my papers done in FIVE days (which it ususally takes like two months to do...I'm just awesome that way) I got my call a week and a half later. A bunch of friends came over, and my sister's family and i web cammed with the parents so they could see me open it. Everyone told me that i COULD NOT read ahead! And i said, "I'll try my hardest not too, but i'm not making any promises!" And i did read aheadn, WHOOPS! I read it and i couldn't speeak. I became emotional and had an instant confirmation that that is where the Lord needed me. So i choked out the words, and there you go! I think i cried for the next two hours whenever i told anyone! The following are some pictures from me opening it....I am all red and splotchy from the tears, so excuse the mess! if you want my mission address, let me know and i will get it to you!

Looking at all the ugly clothes i get to wear for 18 months......

I Hope they Call Me on a Mission.....

For those of you that have not heard.....


Yeah, i know, crazy right? I decided about two weeks ago to serve and my papers have been in for about a week! I still have not gotten my head wrapped around this idea AT ALL! my mind is being blown! I will let everyone know where i am going when i get my call. I know i will not get it this week, but hopefully next week!

Back in the Burg

Hey, i stink at this whole blogging thing. But a quick update:

I'm back in rexburg! Back to school, hopefully my last semester! I wish i had like some cool story, but my life is not that exciting. Just school, church, and work.

My roommates this semester are AMAZING!!! I love them to pieces! we already have a lot of fun together. My roommates are Tiff (from montana and has the most amazing laugh ever!), Mallory (from texas, who cracks me up!!), and Jennie (also from texas who is so super sweet and makes the best brownies ever!!). All three of them are returned missionaries, so i'm the odd ball in this situation. It's nice that we are all the same age and that we all are really chill and have our own schedules. Some of our favorite past times (so far) include watching A LOT of TV, playing crazy nines (OH MY GOSH) and eating a lot.

I think this semester is going to be a good one to end on!

Home, sweet home

I am Home!! it is nice to be where there is green trees, humidity, chick-fil-a, and people with Jesus signs in their yard. I forgot how AWESOME the south is. I have just been working at the office since i've been home. Mom and dad are in Switzerland for their 30th Anniversary, so i have had the house to myself this past week. And let me tell you....I AM BORED! Wherever i move to after i graduate, i am going to have to live where people my age are! I need some interaction! i think i have been bugging all my friends that are in other states because i am so bored. Luckily, tomorrow night i am going to see one of my good friends from high school who i haven't seen in like three years!! I am so excited, she is super cute.

Oh yeah....if there is anyone that wants to give me a free plane ticket to Richmond, VA, i will gladly accept! I am in dyer need to see my Britni and meet all these boys she keeps talking about!!

I have no idea how i am going to last the rest of the 6 1/2 weeks and then i will be sweetly reunited with Tiff (which is going to be amazing, i have a feeling) but not with BRIT! what the crap am i going to do with out her?? I think there was not a day that went by that i did not spend with her this past semester. WHY WERE WE NOT FRIENDS LAST SEMESTER? Oh the cruelities of life. Who is going to watch SYTYCD with me every wed and thurs night?? All i have to live for is our webcam dates that hopefully happen soon!! MY LADIES: I MISS YOU!!!!

Who needs a date when there is TETRIS??

Curse you facebook, CURSE YOU! So my LOVELY friend britni introduced me to the tetris application on facebook. I was thinking, "Oh cool, tetris. What an amazing game. Maybe i'll try it." It was the worst decision of my life, because for the rest of my life, all i will be doing is playing that dag-gone game of freakin tetris. so i am going to try to talk my self out of it. Here is the reasons it is BAD to play tetris:

1. They show your score compared to your "friends". I am really competitive. So OF COURSE i have to beat everyone.

2. It sucks you completely in for FOUR HOURS. That's right i played tetris for FOUR straight hours. Sad

3. Consequently because of reason #2, i now have carpel tunnel. For real, it is killing me to type this.

4. Every time you do not beat your own personal score, the screen flashes "Great Game!" hence at that point you want to chuck your computer at the wall, hence having to buy a new computer, hence becoming poor. So TETRIS=BEING POOR

I hate tetris. Tetris is lame. Who needs to play tetris? hmmmm, i have nothing to do at 1:45am.....I think i'll go play some tetris.

So maybe i am a 15?? This is sad

Ok. Give me a break here. Just because i'm 23 does not mean that i can not enjoy the occassional barely legal boy band, right? Well too bad. Here is my new obsession! It is the band that is no longer together called NLT. Here is how i discovered them:

I was watching the Pilot of the BEST NEW SHOW called GLEE and i was curious if i had seen any of the characters in anything else. so i went on my new favorite webstie, imdb.com (internation movie database, I KNOW, AMAZING) and looked their past entertainment histories. I looked up Kevin Mchale who plays Artie (the kid in the wheelchair) and it said something along these lines:

"Fun Fact: Kevin is a member of the band NLT"

And i was like, hmmmm let's look that up.

AND THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!! I can not believe i had no idea about them and WHY in the world no one else has! and the sad part is, they are no longer togther! I think they need to have a reunion concert ASAP! and you'll never guess.....ARTIE IS A FREAKIN HOTTIE! so here you go world, enjoy and love as much as i do.

Feeling the inspiration

Ok. So i have just realized how LAME my blog actually is!! i have been sitting here with my roommate, future roommates, and bff, britni and their blogs are awesome and amazing and witty and enjoyable to read! i was sitting there thinking, WTF??? how come i am the lamest blogger in the cyber world?? I can be occasionally witty and awesome and amazing and enjoyable, no? YES I CAN! So from now on i am going to write until my little heart's content and try to be more dilligent in my posting!

Ok so what should i write about...? that is the question. Maybe that is why i never write about anything because my life is so STINKIN boring! For real! do you want to know what i did today? Class, then work, then laundry at ash's house, then SYTYCD, then i tie-dyed a t-shirt while i should have been doing homework. Seriously, that is how my day ususally goes. Nothing excting. And tomorrow will consist of class, enrichment, and homework. so sad, so sad.

Here is something i will write about:

I am moving to Richmond, Virgina in January after i graduate. Why you may ask? becasue that is where all the young, single, hot, lds, med school students are, that's why!! My friend Britni is from there and apparently, there is where i can find me a husband! So i have no idea what i am going to do in richmond, or if i will be able to find any job remotely in my field, but heck, i'm 23! forget about a career! it's time for me to find me a husband that will buy me lots of things. Hence, why i am moving to Richmond. My mother thinks it is a wonderful idea.

My New Hair

So, here is a really bad picture of my new haircut! My mom, sister, and I all went and got our hair done a little over a week ago. i had been growing my hair out for like three years and just recently, i have been thinking about going short once again....My mom, sister, and her sister-in-law erica, totally talked me into chopping it off! So i did and this is the end result. i took this picture with my dinky cell phone, since i don't have a camera, so sorry for the poor picture. I was a little shocked for the first couple of days, especailly when i washed it, but i love it. it is super cute and it can get REALLY curly, which is how i prefer it!
