C’est la vie!

Alright guys… I got super busy after July this summer so that’s why I haven’t posted anything in what? 3 months? And now you get 3 posts and a re-blog from me? I hope you all forgive me!

Let’s recap each month… shall we?


– I was working at the theater constantly

– The people I babysit for were out of town

– I went swimming a few times with friends

But mainly for July I just worked and watched the Big Bang Theory.


– I had a goodbye picnic with some of my really good friends

– I worked at the theater a lot and got to train my friend Evan in concessions

– I also worked at CAbi about 2-3 days a week for like 6 hours each

– I didn’t have any babysitting jobs ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

– I basically slept and worked until the 12th rolled around, that was when I visited my best friend Joann in California for a whole week (for her birthday)

– After that I worked for about a week in between the California trip and then the New York trip

– After the New York trip (towards the very end of August, last 3 days) my boyfriend came to visit me and he stayed for 5 days at my house

– We got to go to Six Flags twice (my family got season passes)

That is basically August in a nutshell. It was rather busy. I hope y’all remember that I did post about how there would be a lot of travel in my future.


– I was no longer working at Cinemark or CAbi (I went seasonal with both)

– I had to say goodbye to my boyfriend on the 2nd day of this month (also the day we broke up)

– I hung out with my twin, Sara, as often as possible before I had to leave for college

– I was pretty depressed. Gonna be honest here

– I had my birthday on a Sunday so I had a “birthday party” on Monday morning and then I had a few friends come over later that night because they couldn’t make it earlier

– My mom and I shopped for stuff for college

– My family went to Six Flags with our friends Michaella, Keaton, and Kallee

– I had to pack up my room so that I could leave for college (this literally took forever!!! And I didn’t even bring a lot of stuff to college, I packed most of it up and put it in bins or my closet)

– I drove with my parents up to Idaho (3 day journey)

– We got my stuff moved into my dorm and I went shopping for some more college stuff

– I attended the BYU-I Get Connected activities and hung out with my roommates Michaella and Hanna

– I started class on the 15th (my sister’s birthday)

– My roommates and I started watching movies every Friday and Saturday night

Friday: Scary movies (usually)

Saturday: Any kind of movies

– I met my FHE brothers and sisters

So that is September. Some of what is to follow/or what is above may accidentally be placed in the wrong month


– I got a calling in the Rexburg 42nd Ward (Visiting Teaching Coordinator for my Relief Society)

– Went to a college dance (The Masquerade Ball) Hanna and I only stayed for 15 minutes

– Threw a birthday party for our roommate Kaitlyn

– Went through some roommate drama

– Continued watching shows and movies with Hanna

–ย I started going to the Temple every Friday (the first time: before my classes with my ward, every time after: after my classes with Hanna)

– I have to deep clean the apartment every week since October 1st with my roommates

– Had to explain about my anxiety to someone and they STILL don’t understand it

– Wrote my first college essay and got a 94 on it

That brings you up to date with today. I also got to go shopping today (after going to the Temple) at DownEast and I got to get 2 dresses, ย a skirt, and a scarf for $19 dollars. ๐Ÿ˜€

Well that’s my life!!

C’est la vie!

Fare thee well!!

Birthdays and football games and Robin Hood and… yeah!

So, this weekend was super busy.

FRIDAY: I got my friend Catherine/Laura to come with me to the Allen Eagles football game. Before we went we watched a couple of episodes of A&E’s Robin Hood and then we left for the game. We wore our senior jeans and walked to the game and had tons of fun!!! Then Carmen walked back with us to my house and we watched another episode of Robin Hood and ate brownies and ice cream and popcorn (too much popcorn). Carmen is a popcorn eating machine!!!!!

Then we watched some videos on youtube (Canada Please, Sad Cat Diary, Homestarrunner, etc.) and then it was time for them to leave. But it was okay because they would be coming over the next evening for my birthday party!!

SATURDAY: My mom and I went to the choir check-in day at my school and got to order a senior choir t shirt and a normal choir t shirt and a new yard sign because I am FINALLY in Chorale even though it’s my senior year. Then my mom and I went shopping for party stuff and then we worked on setting it all up and cleaning the house until my friends got there. We got to talk about lots of things and get caught up on everyone and then we watched “A Walk to Remember” and then we played Just Dance 3 and then Apples to Apples. My little brother decided he had to be there and hang out with my friends even though none of my guy friends came and then he decided “oh it’ll be okay for me to interrogate her about which guy friends she invited!” so he asked me “Karen, did you even invite any guys?” I refused to answer. I’m pretty positive that this party wasn’t his party in the SLIGHTEST so he has ABSOLUTELY no right to say that or ask that. He was lucky I let him be there.

For my birthday I got some awesome clothes, 2 $25 gift cards to Barnes and Noble, 1 $25 gift card to Amazon, a super fuzzy and pretty green teddy bear, ย mint oreos, Carmen made me a poster that is a quote from William Shakespeare written in Gallifreyan, and I got lots of candy and stuff xD

SUNDAY: I went to church and then I went home and started cleaning my room and in the middle of cleaning I fell asleep and then woke up and finished up a good amount of cleaning. but I haven’t totally finished. Then I went to bed.

MONDAY: Today I woke up and went to seminary and I am so exhausted and ready to go to school and then come home so I can take a nap it isn’t even funny. I’m probably gonna come home and watch Bates Motel though… I really want to so it’ll be interesting xD

Well…. Sebastian has been on his mission for 10 months now. That’s a crazy thought ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Woah. I should probably get off now… I’ll post soonish… Hopefully sooner than this post was. I feel bad. D: It’s been a whole month…

Well, Fare thee well!!!

Friday. <3 <3 <3

Yesterday was amazing!!! I can’t complain about a single thing from yesterday. I got to pick up my new retainer from the orthodontist which was okay. Then I got to hang out with Colleen.

She and I talked and watched the movie “Minor Details”. We also watched the first episode in a web series based off of a book series called “Private”. Then we headed on over to the theatre around 12:30 for my interview at 1:00.

I had a great interview, the manager seemed to really like me so I was excited about that. She told me that if they call me, they would be calling between 4:00 and 5:00 that evening. ๐Ÿ˜€

So then Colleen and I headed back to my house to watch “Scents and Sensibility” with my injured sister (she tore a ligament in her left foot). A little bit after starting the movie, Colleen and I headed over to the park where we got to take part in a massive group hug! ๐Ÿ˜€ Then we went back to my house and watched part of “Pride and Prejudice: A Latter-day Comedy” (otherwise known as the Mormon/LDS version).

Then I took Colleen home around 4:00ish and I was stressing out xD haha but it was okay because I didn’t get a phone call and I was starting to think I wasn’t gonna get the job because they hadn’t called by 4:50 and then I heard my phone ringing and it said “Cinemark” because I had saved their numbers into my phone that they had called me on.

She offered me the job and I took it. I officially have a job!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yay! Okay, and then around 6:00ish I went over to Catherine’s house and hung out with her for a little bit (because it was her birthday).

Then we all got in their car (Catherine’s parents, her sisters Lily and Rachel, and her friends Daniel and Caitlin, plus her and me) we drove about a half hour away to learn salsa dancing!! It was SO MUCH FUN!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I loved it!

My bestfriend is serving his 2-year church mission in Spain so I will have something to talk to him about! ๐Ÿ˜€ Not to mention he is Hispanic. โค Okay. That’s all for now.

Fare thee well!!
