"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is BEAUTIFUL!!!" - Sophia Loren

"Come what may, and love it. I know why there must be opposition in all things. Adversity, if handled correctly, can be a blessing in our lives. We can learn to love it. As we look for humor, seek for the eternal perspective, understand the principle of compensation, and draw near to our Heavenly Father, we can endure hardship and trial." - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

"Happiness does not depend upon what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you. It is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life." -Spencer W. Kimball

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." -Unknown

Back Pain

So today while I was walking home from work in the freezing cold that is Provo I decided that I am going to die young and have back pain. I am going to die young because of all the junk I eat because I cannot afford to buy all the healthy things that I should be eating and on Monday at a Ward fireside I had a bunch of strawberries piled high with whipped cream. I think that pretty much cancels out any nutritional value the fruit once had.

As for the back pain, my backpack is too heavy. But I have no way of lightening my load. I only take the books I'm planning on reading with me to campus but somehow they are very heavy. And I take my laptop everyday up that stupid hill. I can't just leave my computer at home because it makes it easy to find things and I take notes on it in all my classes.

So I've come to the sole conclusion that I am going to die a young woman with back pain. The end.

Back in School

Well, I've been back in school for about a week and a half and still don't want to go to school. I just have to get used to it again. I was only off for about 2 and a half weeks and yet I don't want to go to school. I'm doing my homework like a good girl but I'm just not in the mood for it.

I started the semester registered for 18 credits. By the middle of my first week I realized that was basically impossible on top of that I'm working 9 hours a week. I dropped one of my easier classes so that I can focus on my harder ones this semester and then I'll pick up that easier one next year (hopefully my last year year!).

This semester I'm taking Family Adaptation and Resiliency, Sociology of the LDS people, Forming Marital Relationships, a class for my internship, and Socialization Across Childhood. There is going to be alot of writing in my classes this year but I guess that's what I get for being in the social sciences. Hopefully everything will go alright and I'll make it through these hard classes and then next year maybe my classes will be a little bit easier.

I love seeing my neice and now she is smiling lots. She is so cute and I love her!
