FUN

I love to have fun and hang out with friends!! Its awesome and feels nice to just relax and not worry about work or school or anything. Today me and some friends went and saw "The Day the Earth Stood Still" It was AWESOME!!! :D Good movie. There was no swearing and no sex scenes and only one really gross part, unless you don't like needles, then it had a couple. Not a lot of action though, but still a good movie. Anyhow, work has gotten to be somewhat fun now a days. I am starting to like it. Which is good because I would hate to be stuck with a job I hated. I really need this job because poor college students like me can not survive without one. I just wish I got paid more and didn't work as much so I would have time for homework. But anyways, I need to go to work. Later.

Stressed out?

Ever felt stressed out? Yeah, me too. School work was going to kill me! Or so I thought. It was hard to not feel as if I was going to fail everything and my life would be over. I talked to my mom and she told me something that I try to remember as finals week approaches. "Hey, its just school. You can retake it and do better." And she is right! I CAN retake a class, I CAN do better! I don't want to retake a class and have to try to do better but if worse comes to worse, that's all I have to do. And that's not even that bad if you think about it. I mean sure it adds on time and the world is all about rushing things and moving fast, but sometimes we need to just step back and take a look at what we are doing. We can always redo classes. We need to realize that its not the end of the world if we didn't graduate with a degree 2 years sooner than everyone else. That shouldn't even be a concern of ours. My closest friends are going to graduate way before me! In fact one of them almost has her degree, and another friend doesn't even know exactly what he is going to go into so I could graduate before him. That has helped me calm down and not be as stressed about things. Its also good to know that my parents wont be mad if I fail. And if yours will then just talk to them and tell them that you are concerned about your grade and that you think maybe you might fail, but also tell them that you are scared that they will be really mad at you for not passing. Tell them your concerns, it makes it easier. Anyways, just thought I would leave that thought for everyone.

Work :P

Okay so working sometimes sucks! Actually almost always! I mean I don't have a bad job. Except the fact that I don't get an employee discount, which all my friends ask me for everytime I go in with them. But anyways, it sucks for a couple different reasons. One I work every weekend!!! And I mean EVERY weekend! Friday and Saturday nights are u sure thing! And yeah, it's nights that I work. So my social life can just be kissed goodbye. Muah! Which leaves me with hanging out durring the week. Which isn't really a bad thing. It's just that I have a crazy schedule.
I have school everyday first of all, and on Mondays I have FHE, which stands for Family Home Evening. And I am in a student/singles ward so it's just us students hanging out and playing games or watching a movie or whatever. But here's the thing, I am in charge of FHE. Yup, there you have it. And no, I am not the only one in charge, there is one other guy that helps me, sort of. Nothing against him but he isn't always there to help, and he is really hard to get ahold of. And afterwords I have homework.
Tuesdays aren't much better. If I'm not working after school I am doing homework. Then if I'm lucky I get to hang out but not for very long because I have school early the next day. Wednesdays are the same. Thursdays I have school, homework and The Office. Yes the best show ever! :) One of them anyways. And thats if I don't work. So thats an okay day. But Fridays and Saturdays I always work. And Sundays I always have off because the store isn't open.
So yeah basically that is my week in a nutshell.
So when my friends go home for the weekend and I am stuck working, it kinda sucks. Sometimes I feel left out of all the fun. But I try not to dwell on it. Its just been a crazy week so it came back to my attention. anyways, thats all I wanted to say today. Bye bye! :)

Getting Started

So this is the first time I've ever had a blog. So if it sucks, oh well. Anyways here it goes. Writing isn't my strongest point, as my english teacher could probably tell you. Also I don't do well when it comes to getting things turned in on time, but thats going to change. Atleast I am trying to change it. I need to be better, especially if I eventually want to move on to a major I like, not just the easiest one. And the major I want isn't going to be easy. Okay so about me, I am a young college student at Utah Valley University in Utah. I like the school so far, except the fact that they don't have the major I want but I can always transfer to a new school after I get my associates degree in a couple years or so. The teachers are nice, nicer than I deserve in some cases.
I haven't been to school for a year so this first semester is kind of hard for me to get back into the groove of things. And, like an idiot, I signed up for early classes. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, I mean some people do better in the mornings and others don't. I definately do not. Getting up early isn't my thing, even more so because I stay up way later than I should at night. I thought "Hey! I can go to class early and then come home with enough time to hang out and get homework done!" HA! Yeah I wished. Now I'm just tired all the time and barely get anything done. Or so it feels like. I mean, I do get some homework done but not all of it so I don't feel like I am really doing anything.
Work. Work plays a big part in this also. I work every weekend and so I don't get to hang out as much and I also don't have as much time to do my homework. But thats not it. I also have things going on every Monday and Thursday and I work either Wednesday or Tuesday, so I basically have maybe two or three days to try and get all my homework done in a week. Not exactly fun. Which brings me to my next point, I am a social creature. I need to hang out with others once and a while in order to keep my stress level low. Stress seems to just sky rocket once it starts. Atleast for me. But anyways, I am done rambling about school, for now.
Till next time!
