I forgot the smell of the BYU library

Oh blessed BYU library. I remember once when you were my second home. I remember the days when I'd sleep in your basement, I'd stay from morning till the wee hours of night, and I would interact with no one other than you for days at a time. Those days were very dear to me. Two years have passed since then, and now I have returned to become a study bug once again. You smell the same, you look the same, you feel the same.

Thanks for being such a good friend, BYU library basement level.

Mature, Responsible, Smart

Do you guys remember when I wrote about the homework assignment in which five of my friends had to describe me in three words, and they came up with "mature, responsible, and smart"? Do you remember how much I resented those answers??

Well, tis true. Sometimes a girl's gotta be mature enough to know whats important, responsible enough to stay home and study when she'd rather be playing, and smart enough to study hard things.

4 wrongs can make a right

I recently discovered that a thing I once feared is actually my friend.

Yep, I'm talking about egg sandwhiches.

Tell me, is their ANYTHING apetizing about the following:
boiled egg (smells like butt)
mustard (horible)
pickles (can't eat them with a straight face)
mayonaise (kinda makes me nauseous)

While they are all disgusting ingredients, mashed together and put on Grandma Sycamore bread, its so good.

I've always been scared to try it, but I did, and I love it!

When I'm not studying, I'm...

1. Celebrating BYU's big win agains Oklahoma (no I didn't watch the game or care about the win, it was just fun to watch thousands of people frantically running in the intersections screaming.)

2. Throwing Kelsey a surprise birthday party

3. Tumbling at the Progressive gym

4. Going 80's dancing in Salt Lake

5. Joining over 5,000 other people at Jason Wardrop's party (yes, 5,000 people at one house)

6. Playing rockband at house warming parties

7. Hiking straight up Bridalveil falls (calf deep in cold water)

Basically, I'm still finding plenty of time to have fun and enjoy my life :)
