Redoing the Blog

After completely redoing my blog I wanted to give a bit of a heads up of everything I'll be doing here. I'm not going to just talk about my life and my experiences...which would be cool...but boring. I'm going to be reviewing great books and movies. But above all else. MUSIC! Music is my life so I want to get everyone started with a few really great songs.

1. heart on my sleeve - by michael johns
- I love this song so much. Plus this was totally free on Amazon! Still is, here's the link:
2. love is dead - the lovemakers
- I'm so feeling the itunes song of the week. *ALSO FREE*
3. the bright side - we shot the moon
- LOVE LOVE LOVE this band. not free, but a way good song. you can google it to take a listen.

There will definitely be more music suggestions to follow, plus any time I find a new band I'll spotlight them. Happy Listening!

First Week

You would think that after you actually hit college you wouldn’t be scared anymore for the first day of school right? Wrong.

I’m freaking scared out of my mind…Who am I going to eat lunch with? What if I fail all my classes? What if my professors hate me? Oh there are so many questions.

As far as Connections goes, I made a really good friend, her name is Keni. So far that’s where I’m at.

I miss my bed a lot. I didn’t think about that. And I miss going to bed early…I swear I haven’t gotten to bed before midnight at all this week. I’m a sleeper.

Anyways, hopefully I survive the first week. YIKES!

Another gigantic ginormous waste of my life.

Monday, August 17, 2009


Well, I have to say that thus far, I love it. Yesterday was a little sad…saying bye to boyfriend, bed, dog, and parents. But I’ll be back. That’s the best part, I’ll be back.

Everything was pretty hard leading up to moving out. I mean I kept wondering how am I going to do this? It’s hard, yes, but not impossible. Now that I’m here it’s like whoa….I did it!

So I’m here. It hasn’t hit me yet, which is probably why I’m not having a breakdown or anything. I feel like I’m at EFY. I’ll just be home in a week…but I won’t. Tyson described it as going off to Hogwarts. Well I guess I’m at Hogwarts, although I highly doubt they teach mulitcultural literature there. Anyways, that’s USU. When my internet gets up and running(the BLUEZONE won’t let me register my computer yet…it’s lame) I’ll get some pictures up of our room. It’s fantastic!

Mikayla out.

I'm at work. and it's been a long time since i wrote is long. actually it's more than long...but I'm not excited to leave in just 5 weeks.
Can you believe it? 5 weeks and I'll be out on my own doing my own thing. WOW!
The only thing I'm not ready for is to leave Tyson here....deep breath....I can do this.
I HAVE to do this.

I love yoga. We do yoga every monday in aerobics. I feel so amazing after it. I mean you know what they say....
Exercising gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. And happy people just don't kill their husbands.
I think I have to be happy since Tyson's never happy now days....well sometimes he is. It depends on how much sleep he's gotten and how much homework he has. So the more endorphins I seem to get the more he has.
I'm more aware of how my attitude directly affects those around me. So I'm trying to keep as happy and upbeat as possible. That way everyone else is too. Yoga helps. :D

I'm so annoyed...

I really hate people who are so open about their problems. I mean I'm pretty open on here but even then it's reserved. I'm talking about posting in their statuses their relationship problems. Or saying that they've had a bad day. They're just looking for attention.
I try to ignore them, and you should too. Here's why:
1. They might realize that method of attention getting won't work.
2. They will look for other more desperate ways of attention getting like ripping their clothes off, diving in the fountain at the mall and screaming "GAAAAHHH I'm the KRAKEN from the sea!" Which would be much funnier.
3. Maybe the aren't clever enough to come up with different ways and they will starve and die.
4. They recognized the error of their ways and stop attention getting.
5. They will continue to do it and you can laugh secretly at them and the people who are stupid enough to respond.
Isn't that a great list of reasons? Personally I'm for number 2, I just want to see that in real life. Make my entire day.

Life...or something like it

I feel so stressed out right now. Oh my goodness it's crazy. At some point you just wonder when will it end. I've put off so many things, simply telling myself I'll get to it when I have time.
I've discovered that the older I get, the less time I have. Especially for writing.
I've picked back up the book I'm writing after 6 months of claiming writers block. Unfortunately, it's not exactly writers block as much as writer got too busy. So now I'm making time for it. And trying to still get in time with the boyfriend. Which is turning out to be trickier than one would think.
Tyson has early morning classes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays he has early morning soccer conditioning. Also on MWF he has an after school class till 2:50. Now factor in all of the homework we both get. Along with me working my job usually M, Th, Sat. When is there time besides on Friday to hang out? That's what we're trying to figure out. And it will only get worse as soccer season kicks into gear. He'll have practice everyday till 5. Lovely.
With little sleep Tyson has become crabby, which is usually just funnier, especially when his sarcastic/rude/cynical comments are directed at Cameron.
I'm also working my butt off trying to get scholarships done so that I can get money for school next year. Not to mention studying for the ACT on the 7th. WOW. I need a mental health day. Good thing next week we get to go late every day :D.

I'm old, and I feel especially old since I'm still sore from snowboarding on saturday.
I went up with my brother but ditched him since he's not very good. On my first ride up i made friends with these guys Chris and um I don't remember the other ones name, but they were freaking good. I was pushing myself to keep up with them. Which was pretty cool, except now I am really really really SORE!
And I had a family party, Tyson was able to come to all of it and his parents conviently called at the very end saying that the family was stranded and that the car had broken down.
And other than that life is awesome. I'm going to get back to gilmore girls now. Thanks to heather for season 4 lol

Under Control

I feel like I finally have life under control.
I have a job, I'm getting my homework done, I've got housing picked out for next year, a great boyfriend, and plans.
Finally. It took me until 2 days before I turn 18 to get my life under control, but I'm feeling good now.
And it snowed this morning, so I'm hoping that it snows again tomorrow because I'm going up snowboarding. (FINALLY!!)
I love the way the snow feels. And I have a brand new board to carve through it. And even though I have to work tomorrow, and Tyson will be gone this's looking like a pretty good birthday weekend.
Oh and I NEED to get new music. Any recommendations?

Brick Oven

Well I did get a job.
Brick Oven.
I hate it.
Juliann especially makes life difficult. I work in delivery. I'm a cashier, so I answer the phones and take orders over the phone. I also cut pizzas, fold boxes, and napkins...and it sucks.
At least it's a job and it's only till April. I hope...
