To move or not to move. . . That is the question

So lately I've been thinking about moving back home to the George of Saint. But I don't know. Don't get me wrong I love SUU. I love the classes and the atmosphere here at SUU. BUT I can't afford it and I hate the location of it. This has been the most stressful, depressing, energy consuming, confusing, anxiety attacking semester I've ever had. I started mornings at my job so now I'm up by 4 a.m. and with school, homework, and life I'm usually in bed by 9 or 10.  So I'm usually getting 6 to 7 hours of sleep which for me isn't all that bad. (I work better off of 6 to 7 hours of sleep than I do with 8.) But I have a problem. I get so stressed and have mini anxiety attacks that I'm going to sleep in and get fired that I constantly wake up every hour just to check the time to see if I slept in.

I HATE IT. I hate that I am constantly waking up.I hate that I can't have a good nights rest, not even on weekends. I hate that I'm constantly worrying about if I can make it next month with paying rent and other bills. What stresses me out even more!? Rumor Has It  (I love Adelle) SUU is raising tuition.. EFF. . . I can't afford to pay rent, let alone if tuition raises how am I supposed to go to school?!

Anyways vent over.

So I've been thinking about moving back home. I don't know. I made a Pros and Cons list and my "pros" are two pages long and my "cons" are only a half page. So yeah. My pros for moving back are pretty big. But I can't afford to be "seasonal" at Lin's. . BUT Lin's is hiring!!! They are hiring for a Meat Deli Clerk which for the past two weekends I have been working and training for. SO. . . Tomorrow I'm going to call Jordan (Meat Manager) and see if I can apply for the job and if he will give it to me and handle me working part time evenings for the next month or so until school is out. And if he gives it to me then I'll move back home, go back to school at Dixie, and save up some money so I can try living on my own again some day. I guess you really don't have to read this since I've already made up my mind that I'll move back if I get the job. But I like typing out my problems. Eventually you're going to hear my reasons for what I do, so why not just put it on here and let you all read it. Right?

P.S. Sydney, If you read this. If I move back we can finally do our concealed weapons permit and gun!!

Check It Out

So I made a new blog. It's like my public journal for weight loss. Hope you enjoy my "journey" to healthier me.

P.S. I'll have a link to it on the side of this blog as soon as I figure out how to do that.

The Bucket List

Lately I've been thinking about what I want to do before I die.

Not hinting or saying that I'm going to die - because I'm not.

But I've always wanted to make a bucket list.
So here it goes.

The Bucket List 
(in no particular order)

Watch Phantom of the Opera in Las Vegas 
Go to Europe
Get in a fight. And WIN ( Fight Club style)
Go to the San Diego Zoo
Enjoy the sunset on a beach in Mexico
Convince Cash to go on a couple of cruises.
Visit the east coast 
Walk the Great Wall of China
See the Pyramids of Egypt
Climb to Machu Pichu
Swim with dolphins in Florida
Hold a baby sloth, monkey, tiger, panda, bear, elephant
Ride the trolley in San Francisco
Visit Mount Rushmore
Own a pet cow, pig, chicken, llama, 
Get my concealed weapons permit and own a handgun
Taser someone
Go whale watching
Go on my ISV trip (I have not forgotten to do it and will do it next year. Hopefully)
Get married, have kids, and watch them grow while I grow old with Cash.
Tour around a castle

I know some of these are pretty far out and pretty expensive but a girl can dream right?

More Pictures

I know it's been a week, but here is some of the other pictures from my birthdaypalooza.

 Cash gave Will Smith a wet willy.
I love Matthew McConaughey

Cash met Joe Montana

Cash rode around with Evel Knievel.

Cash and Ali didn't get along too well.

 Cash met John Wayne (Heff this was for you)

Cash was serious about his internship at the White House

He had to spell check for Pres. Bush.

 Cash said it was OK to kiss Elvis. Who wouldn't?
Charles doesn't like Shaq that much.

 We got on the stage with the Blue Man Group.
 This is what happens when we don't shave. We're a pretty hairy family.
I don't know what was going on.

 We went to Fremont street and watched three different bands play all 80's music and watch drunk people dance. One couple was a hoot to watch. Too bad I didn't get a picture of them :(
I bought my first alcoholic drink just because. I'm legal, why not. 

 Then we watched the light show play We Will Rock You by Queen. It was pretty awesome. Specially the Willy Nelson impersonator behind us doing sign language dancing. I was too afraid to take his picture :(

The we took Charles' girlfriend Julieann (She's cool since her b -day is right after mine) to the M&M factory to watch the 3D movie. It was way fun.

So, January 30th, 2012
I turned 21. 
Yup, I'm officially legal. 
It's exciting.
 Saying "Oh, I'm only 20." was getting annoying.
Not anymore!
Since we only turn 21 once, I made a whole week about it and called it 


 January 30:
I turned 21 and had cake and ice cream with my family in St. George. And my friend Ben came over too. But I didn't get a picture with him. How did I miss that?

We tried to take pictures of us kids. . It didn't work out like my mom wanted. But it describes whole we really are. 

February 1:
Cash made me dinner. Steak and potatoes. They were tasty :)

February 2:

Jessie took me to see One For The Money. It was awesome. I loved it.

February 3:
Nothing special

February 4:
Went to Mesquite for dinner with my dad, step-mom. Charles (brother), Julieanne (his girlfriend), Cash, my aunt and uncle and a bunch of my uncle's golf buddies.

I ate an oyster. It was weird. I don't think I'll eat one again. At least I ate one. 
February 5 & 6:

Vegas was SO MUCH FUN! We went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and met many cool celebrities there. I have to say from watching us and other tourist taking pictures. Madame Tussauds is the only place you can  harass celebrities and get away with it.

I hung out with Will Smith

 I pondered with Arnold

Cash won a fight with Chuck Lidell

 My mom chatted with Simon Cowell      

I answered phone calls for President Obama.

Don't worry, there are more pictures to see. But you can view this for now.

Procrastinators UNITE!! . . . tomorrow

Today in one of my classes we talked about procrastination. We listed reasons to procrastinate, what some of the signs/characteristics of procrastination, and how to stop yourself from procrastinating.

And wierdly enough a lot of what my class was coming up. . I do/have. It's sad. I know. This applies with my previous post of me being addicted to Netflix. 

Netflix is just better than doing homework. 

I know it's not legit, but I enjoy taking quizzes I find on the interweb. So after my class I went online, found a procrastinator quiz and took it. My results? 

According to your results, you are somewhat of a procrastinator. Your score indicates that you either procrastinate significantly in a specific area (or areas) of your life, or are a moderate procrastinator overall. Whatever the case may be, this can become a serious problem.

Somewhat? How is that a viable answer? Then again, I guess that's what I get for taking a test off of Google. So, why am I talking about procrastination other than it was the subject of a class today. 

Welp, here's why. I have a paper due tomorrow morning by 10 a.m. I need to pack or start to pack for my trip to Vegas. (YEAH!!) AND I just remembered that I have pictures I need to pick up for my photography class tomorrow. Now why aren't I doing any of these things? Because I'm creating this blog post, waiting for Jessie to come home to see if she wants to go with me, watching Enchanted, and eating applesauce. I love applesauce.

Addicted to Netflix

I have to admit. . . 
I'm addicted to Netflix.
I don't have a very active social life outside of Cash and his family. 
(which I don't mind)
I secretly watch shows that I make fun of or say that I have better things to do when it's showing.


Because I secretly get jealous that people have television and can watch it whenever they want.

The only "TV" that I watch is football and westerns at Cash's uncle's house on Sundays after dinner.
 Then again I'm either asleep from a full stomach or reading the newspaper because it's more interesting than a  sports game. 

I think I know what I want for my birthday next year.
 I know it's 363 days before that will happen but if Cash doesn't get cable or satellite before my birthday. . 
That's what I want. 


Nothing else. 

Write that down. 
Cable and nothing else.
(well maybe a few bucks to shop with)
