This semester ends in just three days, what with my last final happening on Wednesday. I'm so excited to be on a break from school :) After this semester is over, I'll be taking a break from school for spring semester, and then going back to classes in the summer, which will be just a little different than what I'm used to. But it's better, because I'm ready for a break, and these next few weeks have some visits to or from family, so it seemed to make more sense to take summer classes instead.
Working at Brick Oven keeps me really busy too...I really enjoy working there. It's a very happening place, that's for sure. Elder Holland came in to eat with his wife and some family members twice in just the last couple months, which was awesome. Apparently, Brick Oven was his and his wife's preferred restaurant that they liked coming to when they could as students here at BYU. I'm interested to see what it'll be like to work there full-time starting in just about a week.
Dating life has been treating me well in the last couple months. Since the beginning of February, I've been dating a guy named Robby Marsh, and it's been great. He's from Maryland, and goes here to BYU too. Most of you will meet him this summer actually! So I'll save any other details for you to find out then. If you want to know anything else, email me.
All of the above has taken up most if not all my time in these last couple months and a half, so there's not much else to update on. I'm so excited to see a bunch of you soon, and for the rest of you, we need to set up a time soon that we can SKYPE! I miss and love all of you tons...:) Hasta luego.

Well, if I had anything to report about that's been the main thing happening in these last three weeks, it would be the training that's been going on at Brick Oven...! This last week was the most intense so far, having to come in for five hours each day from Tuesday through Saturday. Yesterday was the first day that I got to serve tables by myself, well kind of. I had a 'shadow' with me, but after next week, I'll be serving by myself...which I'm nervous but really excited about! It's so fun once you start getting the hang of it, which I think I did (a bit) yesterday. :D I really love working at Brick Oven because the people are all awesome, and we make fun of each other all the time. Plus, it's a very busy place, just about always full, at least every day that I've worked there thus far.
Anyway, life is good...I'm liking school, work, my new ward, etc. I like it when things are busy, it's the best! Well, I'll write again when I have something interesting to report. Here's a picture I took on the way back from a morning class the other day.

I got to eat lunch with Joey today, which I enjoyed. There's a new cafe/restaurant on the bottom floor of the Tanner building on campus called 'The Blue Deli', and it's pretty good. We decided to have lunch because he's going to Iran this Saturday...I just found that out the other day...so random! Gotta love it.
As the semester comes to a close, I can't believe how incredibly fast it's gone by. This next semester is definitely going to be different, what with me moving to another complex and starting student teaching in March. I'm kinda nervous, but excited at the same time. We'll see how it all goes I guess! Until later, happy Thanksgiving!

I thought I'd put up this video just to show what we do in math class when the teacher tells us to solve a problem using blocks. On this day, we decided to use them to build a small village. But the village had to come down some time...thus the destruction of the math blocks. Enjoy!

Halloween was a lot of fun this year. It being my first one back home after a while, I was way excited to dress up. Emily was nice to lend me her costume from last year, so yes, I was a go-go girl. At least at my ward Halloween party I was. That was a week before the 31st, so on the 31st, I was something else. I went to another stake's dance with Derek, and that was SO fun. I hadn't been to a dance in quite a while, so I had a blast. It was funny when the smoke machine set off the fire alarm of the entire Richards Building (a building by the Smith Field House on campus), and everyone had to go outside until a policeman finally came and turned it off. It was time for us to leave anyway, so Derek and I grabbed a caramel apple before heading out to meet up with a bunch of my friends for a Halloween night campout. I put Reese's Pieces on mine...SO good!
The campout was fun, except for when it got super-cold by about 5AM, but that's okay. Before going to sleep, we all hung out by the fire, made some s'mores, and watched a scary movie (it was supposed to be scary anyway, it was kinda lame). It was drizzling very lightly almost the whole time, but that didn't seem to bother any of us. The fire kept us plenty warm.
Then last night was Rosanne's birthday party that I put on for her. I of course had other friends' help, but I did most of it. I've discovered that it is so much fun to put on parties for other people! There must have been about twenty people there, and that was plenty because we made food for everyone (chicken burritos, cake and icecream, mmmm). She actually knew that something was going to happen, but she just didn't know who all was going to come, so when she walked in and just saw me on the couch 'watching TV', she was totally surprised when everyone came out from the kitchen and yelled 'surprise!' She had a lot of fun last night, and I'm glad she did. :)
Talking with Rosanne the other night, she told me that we actually only have 26 school days left until Christmas vacation...that made me SO excited/happy! I absolutely can't wait until then. I miss my family. But such is life, and it continues to move forward. I'm actually going to be moving to another apartment at the beginning of winter semester. I also just got a new job last week, cleaning in the Clyde building early in the mornings during the week. It's the only kind of job that would work with my crazy/sporadic class schedule. It's alright though, and I like the crew that I work with.
I found out that I'll be doing my first student teaching in Jordan during the second half of next semester...! And so it begins, I can't believe it. I'm kinda nervous, but of course excited as well.
I hope things are going well with all of you...I miss and love you all!
