It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


I really want to go home this weekend but I don't think it is going to happen. I can't miss practice, bleh... I finally went to the doctor today and got me some meds so I can actually live my life again! RELIEF. Now I am supposed to be writing some ghetto Rhetorical Analysis but it is just too overwhelming. I just can't even do it. But I have to, or else I fail. Mehhhhhhh. I just feel like shouting right now. Life is hard, and stressful. I could give up. But I won't.

So many things are running through my mind right now. I miss being home around the holidays when my mom decorates the house, and makes pumpkin bread, and we light fires. Maaaaaaaaaan, I need to go home :(

I'm being depressing right now. I don't mean to be. I'm happy, I promise!


Well it's time to conquer this rhetorical analysis. Hopefully I am in bed before 2 am.

Dippin' out, man

This is how I felt about this weekend:

I just have a lot of feelings...

My heart is aching for home right now. I listen to "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" by Brandon Flowers everyday and I just want to go home! I miss my family, friends, and the city!

I still love college, though. I am turning into such a college student. I just want to party/hang out everyday night! That never happens, though.

I was so energetic today because I went to bed before midnight for the first time in a week! Such an accomplishment. Oh, and I got an A on my Book of Mormon mid-term today. It's not that big of a deal, given it's Book of Mormon, but I was still excited and proud of myself! It made my whole week! This week has and will continue to be a good week! Tomorrow is Wednesday which means easy practice and time for a nap! Ahh, I wait for Wednesday every week. We have a swim meet this weekend. It is in northern California. It will be my first travel trip. So excited! I hope it is warm and sunny. I miss the warmth.

Das all fo now, yo.

Ah, thank goodness this week is OVER! It was a fun week, but I was stressing all week! We had a swim meet on Thursday and it was actually a lot of fun! I can't wait until the next one! After the swim meet I pigged out at Wendy's, then I went back to my dorm and was faced with studying for a biology mid term that I had to take the next morning. I studied all night and didn't go to bed 'til 2 AM. I was so tired the next morning, and I didn't even do good on the test! Friday ended up being a bad day, and not just because of the test. Don't get me wrong, I love college and I am always having fun, but it is just so easy to have bad days! You can't rely on your family to take care of you in times of need, you have to find those friends that can comfort you. Luckily I have those friends, and I am so grateful for all of you!

I was able to host a recruit for part of the weekend. We went to the Haunted Forest, and ate dinner with some of the swim and dive team. I came on my recruit trip this exact weekend last year so it was fun hosting this weekend. But I ended up getting sick yesterday and I couldn't host on Saturday :( I was pretty bummed, but I guess that is what I get for staying up 'til 2 am the night before. I was still able to go to part of the football game, and WE WON! I didn't see the end, but I was happy to hear the good news.

The weekend was a good one, besides being sick, but now I must go conquer my homework. Lets hope I am not up 'til 2 am this time! Hugs!

"The stars lean down to kiss you, and I lie awake and miss you."

Such a stressful week! Two mid terms, two swim meets, and so much reading to catch up on! I mean, forget about a social life, right?! Just kidding, it hasn't been too bad!

I can't express how much I love my Book of Mormon class! I have known so many people who have disliked that class because it is usually difficult, but not if you have the right teacher. My teacher is always so excited about the gospel, and it gets me excited too! The other day he sent us an email with a quote and I loved it so much so I am going to share it with you.

"Beware of the temptation to retreat from a good thing. If it was right when you prayed about it and trusted it and lived for it, it is right now. Don't give up when the pressure mounts. Certainly don't give in to that being who is bent on the destruction of your happiness. He wants you to be miserable like unto himself. Face your doubts. Master your fears. Cast not away therefore your confidence. Stay the course and see the beauty of life unfold for you."

That class has actually helped me out a lot this year. It brings me happiness even on days when I want to give up on everything!

I am just so happy about everything today. Probably because it is Wednesday, and I got a wonderful nap in this afternoon. Mmmmm, naps.

Have a good day, night, afternoon, and BE HAPPY!

"Do something crazy!"

College has made me really sensitive. Sensitive people can sometimes bother me, and now I am one of them. Help me change back to the crazy Allie who has no cares in the world, please?

But I didn't blog to be DRAMATIC! I blogged because I have been doing so many awesome things here at BYU! Just yesterday I was able to attend conference, and it was such a great experience! Just being there I could feel the spirit so strongly. I am so grateful that we have a prophet on the earth to lead and guide us, as well as other men of God who are able to speak to us.

I was able to hang out with my favorite sister, too! Oh man, we are just so crazy. We had a dancing session, and we ate candy, and talked about how much we just love candy. I cast a few spells on her, and now time will only tell how long I have until I go to Azkaban. We are FREAKS!

Last weekend I went to the football game, and man do we stink! I am so disappointed with our team this year, but honestly the game was still so much fun. Some of the girls, including myself, are crazy! We like to rock out to random music playing during the game. ALL THE WAY TURNT UP!!!!

Not too much else has happened. Our first swim meet is this week! I am a little nervous, which is kind of silly of me, but whatevs. School is stressful. I have midterms this week, and I am embarrassed to say that I am already behind with a bunch of reading. I have so much extra time to do homework, but I just want to hang out in the student athlete building and have dance parties!

That's all I have to say about my college experience for now. "Do I really have to graduate?
Or can I just stay here for the rest of my life?"
