Are you hungry?

The Hunger Games.

A fantastic series.

My continued love affair with the written word.

It's a beautiful thing.

For those who haven't read this awesomelyamazing series yet, DO IT!! You won't regret the time spent. Of course it may mean that you sacrifice other, unimportant things in the process, but these things are irrelevant. Trust me. I know.

Okay confession time. I may or may not be writing right now to avoid going back to that black hole the rest of the world refers to as homework, so don't judge too harshly. I'm sure all of you know that wall that comes up outta no where and just WHAM, hits you. I'll attempt to climb over it.. it's pretty dang high though...

Playing catch-up

Wow, first of all want to apologize for the lack of posting. I hope anyone who regularly reads this blog understands that this IS the end of the semester and I AM trying really hard to get good grades. Hopefully that is sufficient to explain.

In recognizing the recent starvation of my blog, I need to make serious amends with this post in the hopes that I can fully satisfy it for the time being and be forgiven. So get ready for a lot of stuff, it's all comin in at once.


-My blog turned ONE YEAR OLD!-
This might be the most rotten of my extensive actions of rottenness.
Maybe not that bad.
How would you feel if the person who cares about you the most FORGETS the day of your birth hmmmm? I don't know about you but I would feel just despicable! So here is my making up for it-Regardless of that fact that some of you will not believe it, I baked a cake. With love.
Fine, keep on not believing. No cake for you.
But seriously this blog has come a long way from very humble beginnings. I've definitely grown a great deal in the past year and I am grateful for all the experiences that have continued to shape me into the person I am becoming/am. And of course I'm grateful for all you wonderful readers who (for reasons unbeknown to this individual) read what I share. I hope you will continue to do so. Here's to another year!

Fantastic holiday. Not my favorite, but still fantastic. Food, T.V., family, football, food, no school, food. I did mention food right? Oh and I guess all that jazz about being grateful for the things that we have. That's pretty cool too, I guess. Perhaps President Thomas S. Monson could say it better:
We can lift ourselves and others as well when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues. Someone has said that “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”
I hope everyone had a wonderfully thankful Thanksgiving with those that they love. I know I did!

-A quite large amount of snow did (and didn't) fall-
The setting is Provo, UT, a day or two before Thanksgiving Break. Students brimming with anticipation for the much needed relaxation of time away from school. A sense of euphoria in the air.
Cue sinister music.
But all was not well in Provo. The evil weather "predictors" stated that a hugelyhumongousginormo blizzard was on its way and that everyone better prepare for the end of the world! People panicked. Locked themselves inside their houses. Refused to go anywhere, though the holiday was only a few days away. Schools closed down, concerts were canceled. A few brave souls ventured to continue to try and leave for their vacations that night. The end of the world had hit Idaho and Montana and had even reached Salt Lake City, it seemed like it was inevitable.
1/2 an inch.
That's all that fell.
1/2 an inch.
Needless to say, the citizens of Provo were not very happy with the weather people, not happy in the least.
They received their redemption, however. At the very end of the break, the heavens opened and quite a load of snow was dumped on the frozen city. Not quite blizzard status but definitely quite the snow storm. Annoyingly wet and cold, beautifully picturesque it felt like the official beginning of wintertime in Utah.

Now due to the fact that by now, most of you are face down on your keyboard, drool dripping onto the keys as you catch a few Zs in between items on this list. Therefore, the remaining items will be mentioned in a rather quickish fashion. Fair enough?

-Concert season at UVU has begun-
-December 1st has reached us-
-Harry Potter 7-
-Best and worst days, consecutively-
-Homebound in 15 days-

Whew! Now we're caught up.
