New Job

So the job isn't everything that I expected it to be. The place where I live is kind of old and rusty but not to bad. There is a girls side and a boys side to our cabin. We each get our own room, which I am kind of happy for. The staff here is really nice and outgoing. Our kitchen is tiny and really messy so I don't know what to do about that situation quite yet haha but we will see as the job goes. I won't be able to give a job description right now just because this week is super crazy because of holidays so after next week I will update on that. There will be nine students working here, five girls and four boys. I have heard that the ward isn't that great but I'll still give it a try :) My hours are usually 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. but sometimes we start earlier and end earlier it all depends on the day. But for now it's just super and we are about to watch a movie all together and just party! I think it will end up being super great and bless my life lots and lots. I will let you know how it goes. Have a wonderful night :)

Good Times

I know that this picture is kind of random but all I want you to notice is that the light switch is OUTSIDE of the bathroom.....We have good times :)

Boys are really dumb!

Today we had a big meeting where they created two new stakes at BYU-Idaho. It was pretty good but also very long. Camille and I were sitting there, listening and just minding our own business. Then Camille sees some boys sitting behind us put something in the hood of my coat. She told me and we just thought, "Really are we in kindergarten??" So we didn't think anything of it. Once it was over Camille looked inside my hood and it was a piece of paper with a boys name and number on it. We all just laughed and thought it was silly. Then my other roommate noticed that Camille also had a hood on her coat, so we checked hers. Sure enough she also had a boys name and number.
Once we got home, we decided to be fun and text them. The boy that I texted seemed really nice. He is a return missionary and we discovered him to be about 23 or 24. He later ended up inviting me to go to stadium singing with him tonight and I thought oh what the heck why not.
Camille was texting her boy and he was thrown off by her age and totally blew her off. Which we thought, at the moment, that that was so rude of him. He ended up telling her that his roommates set him up and that he was sorry for what happened.
So here I was trying to decide if I should still go to stadium singing. I decided to invite my friend to go with me so that it wouldn't be horribly awkward. We met up and he was definitely not the person that was sitting behind me during the fireside. So Camille and I both had been set up. By this time I wasn't to happy. He ended up being a nice guy but way to old for me. Luckily my friend had a good excuse to leave and we kindly left after singing a couple songs.
I think this story is super funny now but all I have to say is that boys are super mean for setting all four of us up like that. Anyway, thought I would share a super silly story with everyone haha :)

First Semester....(almost) Check :)

Camille and I  at Forgotten Carols! SOOOO good :)
Sorry that I haven't posted in a long time. College can be a tad bit busy sometimes. But everything is just going super swell. Only one more week left but sadly that week includes finals....
I am still having so much fun and getting good grades! (Which is a super bonus)

We like to be crazy
So here is my first semester in summary (if I can remember it all): First, to start off, my callings in the ward were super fun. I don't know if I served to the best of my ability but I feel I did well for a first timer. I was called to be the relief society pianist and FHE mom. FHE turned out to be a lot better then I expected. Once I finally forced half of my roommates to go, we ended up having a BLAST! And thanks to my piano lesson class that I took this semester, I was able to get a lot of hymn practicing done throughout each week.
My classes were a lot easier then I expected them to be. Let's just say though, I am really excited for my math and science classes to be over. Those two classes were probably the hardest for me. I don't mind my Humanities class. I thank my old piano teachers for all of the things they taught me about ancient musicians because I was super pro in that section of the class. My writing for communications class was challenging but at the same time I LOVED it! Just goes to show you that I am meant to be a comm. major right? We had a big project in that class where we had to do a representative profile of someone. Our teacher gave us the option of writing a ten page paper or making a video. Of course I picked the video option. I decided to make my video on my roommate because she is representing young women preparing to go on a mission. After a TON of work, I finally finished and turned it in. (I can't wait to see how I did!!!!!!!)
My piano class included just having piano lessons once a week. I feel like I progressed SO much but the hard part was having to practice 45 minutes EVERY DAY! Oh man it was super hard. But like Ethan says, "Pearson's do hard things." :)
It was a very successful semester! I met a lot of new people and am excited to continue my education. I had fun dates and sweet parties along the way. And the best part, I already have 40 credits!!! Which makes me even more excited. (Thank you high school!!!) Now I can't wait to go work at Aspen Grove!
