I just don't know what to do with myself...

I really just don't know what to do. I am having a blast up here at school but am frustrated with tests. AHH! Here is a little update about what's been going on since conference.

First off, volleyball is in full swing. We started off with a win in game 5 by 2 points. It was an amazing game. It was the first time the girls had played together. Then match 2 was last Friday. We lost in 3 games, but they were close and an exhilarating game. Then Sat we played match 3 and it appeared that everyone forgot how to play. It was horrible! So hopefully we can come back and win our match tomorrow.

On October 9 mom and dad came into town for the weekend. It was Mother's weekend and their anniversary so they both came down. Thursday mom and dad picked me up then went to Chris'. Friday we did a little shopping. Saturday we came up to Rexburg watched my game, then headed to Mesa Falls. On the way back from Mesa Falls, we went to go check out the Cave Falls. What we didn't know was that we were headed into Yellowstone National Park. It was pretty but I don't think I would make that drive again. Then Sunday mom and dad brought me back up here and headed off. It was so good to see them again. I wish I lived closer to them, but yet still far enough away to have my own space.

Then last weekend I hung out Kylie and her apartment. Saturday we went to Aaron's football game, took pictures with a handdrawn picture of Derek Richmond, decided we wanted to make pizza, went to a concert, came back finished the pizza, got into a powdered doughnut fight (well Candice and me vs. Kylie), and then ya. It was pretty fun.

So I have been busy between social life and school. I hope everyone is doing well and hope to see everyone soon! Oh and somewhere in my life we had a birthday party for 2 of my roommates. It was fun. I will post pictures soon!

General Conference Weekend

This last weekend was a blast! I went down to Utah and took Kylie (Cara's niece) with me. While there we spent time with Jason, Ali and the kids Friday and part of Saturday. Friday night we had a bowling tournament against all of us (Ali, Jase, Chandler, Kodie, Kylie and me). It was fun there were prizes for everyone! Ali was quite entertaining :) Then Saturday morning Kodie had LaCrosse practice/game. We went but only stayed for like 20 minutes since it was freezing cold outside and her coaches didn't even show up. After we left LaCrosse we headed towards Murray and tried to do some shopping but places weren't open yet. So we hit up Costco before Chandler's hockey practice. While watching Bubba play hockey, I was quite impressed with how well he does. We'll have to wait and see until game time to find out what he really is like. After freezing my hiney off at hockey, we went shopping at a bunch of random stores. When we decided we were done, Ali dropped Kylie and I off at Ron's. While at Ron's we played the Wii, played with the girls, watched movies, and ate tons of food. I am making up for it now. Then Sunday we watched conference and then headed back to Rexburg. Conference this year was amazing! I love President Eyring's talk about unity. I made so many different connections with what I am studying, with coaching, and in my own personal life. It was by far my favorite one so far. I can't wait to read them next month. But this last weekend was good break from school. Definately a much needed one.
