High School

It's been a while since my last blog so I'll catch you all up on the happenings...

I've been a total sicky for the past week. It comes and goes and comes and goes but it mostly just comes and I'm all stocked up on Dayquil and Nyquil and I've got a supply of cough drops as well. I've still been working though because that's just what I do and staying at home all day drives me crazy. Besides the fact that everyone else at work is sick too and so I have to cover shifts all over the place because I'm not as sick as some other people. I have really started to feel better though and thanks to a very kind coworker who shares his meds with me, my congestion has subsided for the time being. Other than that, things are going well. School is nearing an end for the semester and I will not be taking classes spring or summer like I had planned because dun dun dun...

I'm changing my major! That's right boys and girls, I will be staying at BYU for AT LEAST TWO MORE YEARS!!! "Wait, hasn't she been there for four already?" Yes, that's right. I will spend at least six years of my life in Provo, which of all places in the world to live isn't the worst. But let's be honest, it isn't the best either. The announcement isn't as shocking as I've made it seem, though. I'm changing my major from English to English Teaching, which just adds a ton of classes, but I'll also graduate with a teaching certificate, which is good to have if one wants to teach. I do have to apply to the program though so if I don't get in, then it's back to English for me, but I hope I do despite the extra schooling I'll have to endure. I just realized that I really do want to teach those bratty little high schoolers, so that's exactly what I'm gonna do.

Also, I got to hang out with my aunt Mandy and my beautiful cousins and their signifcant others this last weekend and that was wonderful. Rachel's little baby is the cutest baby in the whole world I'm pretty sure. So that was pretty much the highlight of my week. Other than that, work is good, school is good, life is good, and I'm currently trying to figure out when I can get home to California because I think it's about time for a visit. :)

Can I just say I love you.... :) You are such a good writer and your blog always makes me smile. I love your sarcasm. It's just my style. Congrats on the major change. It's exciting to figure out something big in your life. It's a refreshed goal to work towards. I miss you!

Sweet! I think that's a good move, even though it will take longer. IT will take me at least five years to graduate in art education, but at least I'll have more prospects for a job with a teaching degree. I'm teaching a class at Salem Hills High tomorrow...They can be a handful but if they're interested it's so rewarding.

Rock on! :) It takes a year longer to get a teaching certificate here also! Good for you! More trips to Provo in the future for me. Yay! I am coming with Dad to see you run in the marathon. I couldn't resist seeing you do this! We come late Thursday night and leave on Sunday. It's going to be great!
