I'm Done!!!!

I'm finally done with school! No more crying and stressing and studying and bs'ing... I'M DONE! Whew! Graduation was so awesome! I loved having my family there to watch me graduate. It's still kind of weird to think that I won't have to go back to school anymore. Holy Cow! But now it's on to job hunting....BLAH! Job hunting takes so much time and so much energy and when you get rejected, you feel like the scum of the earth. But I found a quote by Diane Von Furstenberg that lifts my spirits every time I read it. It goes "You always have to eat humble pie at some point...every rejection is the fuel for what you will be." What a positive way of looking at rejection! It really does teach you and help you grow. Hopefully I wont have to be taught too much during this life draining job hunt!

Friends in the program: Michelle Petersen, Hanna Turner, Cari Hale

An April Fools to Remember

Since it's around April fools day--- or 3 days after, I remembered a trick that my friend Aubrey and I played on two of our friends during our freshman year at BYU-I. Well this is how it all started. One of Aubrey's friends went to an Asian wedding where they were serving things such as a chicken claw and something like a bird's top half of a head with the beak still on. He took a few of them and brought them to Aubrey intending to gross her out. It did gross us out but I had an idea. First, we decided to pull a little prank on our friend Kyra. She loves peeps so we bought a package of yellow peeps, carefully opened it and stuck the top half of the bird head in the package replacing one of the peeps. A label was over the head a little so you couldn't really see it until you looked really close. Ok, so we gave the box of peeps to Kyra and she was so happy. She said that we were such good friends and that she loved peeps. She didn't see the head until she had eaten probably two of them. We weren't there unfortunately to see her reaction but let me tell you she was soooooo mad! Don't worry she laughed about it later.

Next prank was to our friend Kaylee. Here's what we did. We got a cute little box and put the chicken's claw in it. We wrote a note that said this: Kaylee, We hope you have a stress-free time during finals and we just wanted to let you know that if you ever need a HAND with anything you can always call us. Love, Your Visiting Teachers. (notice the HAND part?? :)) Anyway, we put it in her bed and her roommate told us that she got in bed and didn't see it so it knocked over in her bed and the claw fell out and she started screaming and threw it on the ground. She then cried a lot. We felt really bad but also, wasn't that a really great prank?!
