It's amazing how the testing center can make or break your day. Fortunately, today, it made my day! It hasn't been the best day, but the more I think about it the worse I feel. No more thinking for me. Anyways, I got 100% on my Book of Mormon quiz! It was just a quiz, but getting a perfect score in the testing center is something to be happy about.

Here is my story of the day. I fell asleep in Book of Mormon (I know i'm a sinner) and when I woke up the teacher was talking about french kissing! I was confused to say the least. He was actually making reference to a talk given by Spencer W. Kimball, but I did not know this so I was so shocked that he would be talking about that. It was hilarious, just like that class is everyday (in a good way, don't worry)!

I got a test back today that is supposed to help me in a choosing a major. I will just give you a taste of what it suggests I do with my life.

Accountant: Quite sure this is what smart people, unlike me, major in. I actually love dealing with numbers and figuring things out, but let's be real...
Banker: Another hard major, dealing with numbers once again.
Others include credit manager, financial manager and financial analyst.

All of these just seem like jobs that deal with people's money that really smart, professional men would have. Oh wait, they are.

I am flustered. I don't know what to do with my life!

Hope you don't share my same problems.

Sibling love

This is just a taste of the relationship that my brother and I share:

Me: Hey mark, I haven't talked to you in so long! How is everything going?! I miss you so much!
Mark: Everything's good. What about you?
Me: Awesome. I am doing good too. How is driving coming along?
Mark: I'm doing well I think.
Me: Cool. How long do you think until you can get your license?
Mark: April 9th exactly.
After getting no enthusiasm or even insight into his life I decide it is time to end the conversation.
Me: Nice. Well I just wanted to let you know how much i miss you. I hope you are doing great! Keep being good and I will talk to you later!
Mark: ok.

I can tell he really cares. Before this I asked myself why I don't text him or call him more often, and I think I know why.

Meh, goodnight.

I always talk about naps

I am feeling so great. My life has been organized lately, and I love organization. These past few days I have been able to get all my homework done, go to bed early, wake up feeling refreshed, and have a not too difficult practice. It is not that I mind all the chaos of college life, I actually enjoy being busy most of the time, but for the next few weeks I need to keep up with school and FOCUS!

There is a BYU basketball game tomorrow against SDSU. Probably the biggest game of the season, and for that reason I will most likely not attend. It is going to be PACKED, and we have been advised that if we want to get in we need to start lining up at 4. The game starts at 8. Ridiculous. I am not spending 4 hours in a line when I could be napping, reading, doing homework, or just wasting my time on the internet. Clearly I have my priorities set straight.

Not much to report on about today. I am happy and well and I hope you are the same!

Dippin' out,

Allie Pal :)

I finally updated my background. I was pretty bored with the other one, and I wanted to spice it up a little bit.

I feel like I haven't blogged in quite a while but it really has not be long at all. I never have anything to blog about anymore. I usually have some good story to tell or drama to inform everyone about. Not lately, though. Maybe everything in my life is just too special to blog about ;)

Hmm, the swim season is nearing the end and I am so SAD! I can't believe that my freshman year of swimming will be over in a little over a month. It goes by way too fast. Our last home meets are this weekend. One tomorrow night and the other Saturday afternoon. I am excited. I just love competing so much.

I am so tired today. I had no motivation to do anything. I didn't have class 'til eleven so I figured I would go back to my dorm and get some reading done for a class. I wasn't 2 pages into my reading when I started dozing off. I couldn't believe myself. I hate falling asleep when I have things to do. I gave in and hopped in my bed for 15 minutes to take a quick power nap. MISTAKE. I had the hardest time getting out of bed. I just love naps so much.

Some of my favorite things are reading and napping, but it's ironic how one can cause the other. i.e. reading can cause napping.

Don't worry though, I got a good nap this afternoon and I feel much better, but now I must go get my homework done.

Have a loverly day!

I need to lay off the candy

I don't know what it is, but I am just feeling under the weather today. Not as in sick, but as in 'not as happy as I usually am.' Everyone that knows me knows what a happy person I am, but I just couldn't be excited about anything today. It makes me sad that I was feeling this way today. I think it might be because my sister is leaving for New York in a couple of days and I won't be able to see her very often, and I miss home a lot.

I tried to cheer myself up so I went to the book store and bought seasonal candy. I am crazy when it comes to holidays. I always love having candy that goes with holidays, so today I bought sour lips in honor of Valentine's Day. I really wanted cinnamon hearts but I could not find any. Maybe next time I will look harder.

Right now I am obsessed with the song "You Are Loved" by Josh Groban. I can't stop listening to it. It makes my heart warm, and that is always a good feeling :)

I have finally concluded that I do not take very good care of myself, and I definitely need to change that. I get sick too often. I never eat lunch, I don't wear warm clothes, I eat unhealthy, and I don't go to sleep 'til after midnight. That is going to change now, as I sit here and eat candy. Whoops. Once this bag of sour lips is gone I am done! Chances are I am going to take that back.

Have a good day, and make good choices.

What can ya do?

The semester has started and I am definitely not ready to work hard and have my butt kicked again. That's life. I am feeling so many emotions right now. I am such a girl and I hate it. My mind is never at peace. I hope I am not the only one who does this.

In other news, BYU basketball won last night. Boo yah, it was awesome. I love BYU basketball. Jimmer is unstoppable.

My sister came down to visit me on Tuesday. That was fun. I always have a good laugh with her. We are just so silly.

I don't have a lot to say and that is depressing because usually my life is super exciting and I have too much to write! Oh well, just a short post for tonight.

I am happy, and you should be happy too.

<3 Allie

Today has been a terrible day! I got home from Christmas training last night and felt horrible. I thought I just needed some sleep but apparently not. I feel even worse today. I didn't get out of bed to do anything, and the worst part is that no one can take care of me :( I have a fever, sore throat, the chills, headache, body aches. I hope this goes away soon because the semester starts Tuesday and I can't miss classes! All I have been doing is sleeping and taking hot showers because I am so cold all the time.

Other than how I am feeling right now, I had a good week of training with my team! It was really tough, but I also had a lot of fun with everyone. I got a good tan, and partied big in San Diego. Just kidding about the partying, but I loved being in San Diego.

Well, not too much to blog about today. Enjoy your life.
