It's been forever.

Well let me start by saying that missions are taking over. I can't even tell you how many mission farewells, call openings and friends working on papers there are (including myself). It's pretty dang exciting. I have friends going to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Bolivia, Florida, Brazil, Texas, Russia, pretty much just everywhere. My plan is to put my availability date for June 1st, so I can turn my papers in during the beginning of February!

 Saying goodbye to Jake, he's going to be such a good missionary.
 Last "picture" for two years. Love these guys so much.
                                     Cool art gallery.
It's so good to be back up here at BYU. I love love love my friends. I am so grateful to have met them. That's the simplest way to put it, I could go on and on. Maybe another post.
 Yes we painted our faces at midnight and ran around campus to take pictures.
                                                   Karaoke night, we went crazy.

Classes this semester have already been better. I'm taking a printmaking class that is intense and super fun. It's my first studio arts class that counts for my  major so It's exciting. Also my book of mormon class is 100 times better than the one I was in last semester. So far, so good.

Daddy came in town and we went skiing. Long story behind that one but I was grateful to get to spend some time with him. He gets me, just ask my mom haha.

I Believe in America

 Well folks I just spent the last 5ish days campaigning in Las Vegas for Mitt Romney. Although we didn't get the results we wanted I had an amazing weekend and wouldn't trade it for anything. It was such an exciting feeling being a part of the team, even if just a small part. I met so many kind people and we all felt a bond by our hope for America. I learned so much about the race and the implications and I am very glad that I took the time to be involved. Every morning all of the volunteers (from Utah, Ido and California) met up for our morning rally, full of cheers and speakers to pump us up for the day. Then we set out in vans and started knocking doors. We had a list of people and we'd just knock and leave literature (political talk for flyers haha) at homes. They'd get us all together in the afternoon for a speaker and dinner then we had the night to ourselves. I went out on the strip twice with some friends and had a great time. I've always hated vegas, it's just dirty and nasty but I actually had fun this time. One of my favorite things we did was at the Coca Cola store. You can buy a tray of 16 coca cola sodas from all of the world, Watermelon soda from China, Mint soda, gross Italian soda. It was so fun to taste all of the different flavors. We also stopped by the M&M store and bought ourselves some patriotic red, white, and blue M&Ms. I also loveeed the fountain show at the Bellagio, so beautiful. The first night it went to "I'm Proud to be an American" which was quite fitting. It was overall a very fun weekend. I was so proud to represent the Romney Ryan team in Vegas and I will continue to pray for America and our President.



On a different note October has ended and November is in full swing. My Birthday month gotta love it. Here's a link to a new thing I'm starting, the Monthly Montage. A new friend I've made up here makes great weekly Monday Montages and I'm copying hit a bit. I've realized how fun it is to have a lot videos, so check out October's Video here.

On an Art note, my 2D design class decided to put up a show of our work on the 5th floor of the HFAC. The night before we were suppose to put it up I decided to stay up all night and turn one of my little church sketches into a nice little painting. Here it is. It's one of my favorite things I've done so far. That's why you've probably already seen in on Instagram and or Facebook. Sorry bout it.

Also I just happened to run into my Art teacher on Friday and his drawing club and they invited me to stay. It was with a lot of the Studio Art professors here at school including Brian Kershisnik who is a well known and awesome painter. It was really cool to sit in our their drawing club and listen to them talk about art and life. I think i'll go again this week.

Just some lovely fall pictures with my girl Camrie.

BYU Museum of Art was my favorite place this week. I spent some time going through the fairly recent Andy Warhol exhibit which was lovely. The MOA cafe is also one of my favorite places to eat on campus! AND the museum store can keep me entertained for hours. There's a book there called "All my Friends are Dead."It's hilarious. If you ever see it in a bookstore take the time to read it cause it's the funniest little book i've ever read.

My bed=my real favorite place.
I thought this was pretty, the view from the top of the Utah Valley Convention Center
After a halloween dance party we all stopped at Sammy's for some pie shakes and burgers. I love this place, such a fun atmosphere and good food.

Mint oreo pie shake...I get it every time
Guys I got to hang out with pretty much all my favorite girl friends in one place.


Jane (she's a zombie tourist obviously)

Lovely October

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love fall. Oh so much. Last night we went up to a friends house in midway and carved pumpkins, drank cider, watched Halloween movies and just had a grand time. The girls slept at one house and the guys at another and joined up for chocolate chip pancakes in the morning. It was so much fun and good bonding time with new friends.

Also folks I got an iPhone so get ready for more posts with more pictures! So happy.
