Mass Transit

I just got home from an eight hour shift at subway...I'm tired! And I've got to clean the bathroom for cleaning checks. I realize this has nothing to do with the title -- i'll get back to that in a minute, but WHY do adults who pay rent every month -- on time -- need to go through a cleaning check once a month? Why are they so ridiculously picky? And everything must be perfect. I clean every inch of the bathroom -- literally. Including the ceiling. My bed has to be made (okay I do that everyday anyway) and my bookshelf and blinds dusted. Why does everyone in Provo (who is not married) have to go through this? Why? And if I don't do a satisfactory job on it, I get fined. If it gets messed up by someone else after I clean it and before it gets checked, too bad. I have no problem cleaning. I like a clean house. I hate messes. I have a problem with being treated with less freedom than my parents treated me with Saturday cleaning. Oh well. I can't really do anything about it. And I'll try not to get into my ranting about the byu-approved housing monopoly which pushes prices up. :-) (How does my best friend in Oklahoma pay fifty dollars more a month than me and get her own room and share a bathroom and kitchen with one other girl? What I wouldn't do for more fridge space...)

Anyways, this was all to inform everyone that I will now be spending the next two hours deep cleaning the bathroom that four girls share. Yay. And I'd rather be cleaning subway for eight hours any day. I guess I'll just turn on some music and get to work...

Candy Hearts

So, I decided it was time to take off the Christmas background. So I put up the closest holiday...Valentine's DAY! Which brings me to a question for you! What's the greatest phrase/word you've ever seen on a candy heart? And, what's the best color? I've got to say yellow and orange.

On a scale of one to ten, I'd say a 12

Well, I, um, well, er, uh, yeah. I'm a very lame blogger. The end. True story. Also, I have a really bad habit of writing in short sentences. I hate sentences that run on and on and on and on and on so much that I rarely write a compound sentence. My paper editing buddies are always telling me to combine my sentences. Anyways, to answer the previous question, I didn't have any exciting stories to tell I guess. Other than trying to sleep with my head jammed up against the car window and my little sister laying in my lap with no foot room because there were backpacks at my feet, the ride was uneventful. And not nearly as squished as some have been. There are seven in my family. And seven seats in the car. Therefore, we always travel squished. It's a bonding experience. :-) And be thankful for portable dvd players!!! Traveling just keeps getting easier.

My semester is going SOOOO well! I love it! I'm in all major and minor classes -- no GE's!!!! YAY! It's just so fun to have all my classes about something I actually WANT to learn about. I've changed my schedule at least twice since last times I posted, but I PROMISE it will stay the same now for the next thirteen weeks or so. So, here are the new classes: dance history, kinesiology, chinese contemporary dance, orientation to dance, back-up folk dance team, intermediate composition, and women entrepreneurs. FUN!

If I could say everything I would, but it seems really weird to me to tell so much online. I just don't really like it. So, in a nutshell...I LOVE MY LIFE! Don't worry I'm still way stressed and I still work and go to school and don't really play, but when work and school are just plain fun already, why do you need specific play time? I know it's all in the attitude, so I'm trying to have a good one.

Anyways, I'm rambling so I'll stop. I'm just excited for what this semester might bring. :)

P.S. It was brought to my attention that I forgot the best part. I'm in love. And isn't the world just better through rose colored glasses?
