First Week of School

That could be all I type and I'd be fine with that...but don't worry I'll type more! My first week of school was fun, long, exciting, stressful, unpredictable, and well it was school. My classes are not hard two of them are repeats, not because I have to retake them but because I want to. I'm in a part of my life that I'm ready to apply for the nursing program and have no other classes to take, but since I am on student government I need 12 credits. So I am retaking 2 lecture classes to hopefully get A's. I'm also taking medical terminology, and co-op which gives me credit for working. So I feel my studies will be fairly light but we will see. The first week is always so busy with everything going on, my very first day of school was also my first 12 hour day at Dixie. Some of you might be thinking that I'm crazy (I am) but it's really normal to be involved and be on campus that long in just one day...and I can now officially say that I have been there done that!

This is my first day outfit

This is the WOW schedule!

The carnival is always so big and so much fun! This year was no different, there were students, teachers, families, and lots of memories made.

We also did club rush, and had so many clubs participate it was so great. We did minute to win it which was a huge success and the foam dance was off the hook!! Like I said at the beginning of this post I love Dixie and and just so thrilled for the rest of this semester!

Summer Recap

Well, it's that time again.. Summer is over, school is starting and I have blogged once. I'm horrible, therefore I am doing a summer recap to tell you everything that has happened in the last 3 months...ready go! :)

This summer (just like any other) had some pretty high hopes like for instance: going to the Little mermaid at the tuacahn, Phoenix trip with Tiana, hiking a waterfall, and many bonfires! Sadly none of these things happened but I still had a great summer....don't worry :) Where should I even start? Well, the most of my summer was consumed in working two jobs. I hope to get into Dixie's nursing program soon and I needed to get CNA hours to keep my license current, so from April-July I worked two days at St George care, and 5 at IHC. Basically most weeks I worked every night it sucked! The pay checks were good, the experience was good and I got my hours taken care of so mission accomplished I suppose! I also did the summer school thing, I made myself retake two of my science labs to get better grades and guess what? I blew my old grades out of the water I was so excited!!

Now for the things that made this summer memorable, I went home one weekend each month and mostly hung out with my family. One trip we went to the desert star play house and watched Sherluck Holmes it was hilarious.

Another trip I went to Harry Potter with my little sister it was the best!! I love Harry Potter and cried all the way through it, I'm so sad that it's all over.
This summer actually had some really good films come out Pirates 4, Kung Fu Panda 2, Super 8, Cars 2, and Transformers 3!!, Now I have only seen the following: super 8 it was way good I went in not knowing anything about it and loved it, Cars 2 was horrible, and transformers 3 was the Pirates I've heard was so bad, and Kung Fu I just haven't had time to watch. but they are both playing in the dollar theater so I might go see them before school starts...I hope...

We went swimming and tanning so much it was awesome! We also went on many late night runs to Wendys, McDonalds, and Walmart. Jessica and Thomas finally got married it was so great to drive to bunkerville and attend their reception there. Alexis Lynne Bird had her farewell in July I am so glad I go to go home for that I miss her so much! This is the year that either the boys are coming home or the girls are leaving for missions it's kind of crazy! I had the chance to see some of my good friends Nic, Phil, and Russell at Alexis's farewell it was awesome. I'm going home this weekend to hear Cody and Michael speak I can't even wait! Since Jess moved out we got another roommate her name is Randi she's so awesome!! I just love my living situation so much I've gotten very lucky. Randi was a nonmember when she came here to Dixie and through the amazing Elders Goodman, and Hayden she is now a member!! She got baptized on Saturday and it was great. I loved having the missionaries in our apartment every week because of the great spirit they brought.

I've also decided to do student government again this year so I have been working so hard the last couple of weeks to get stuff ready for this semester. We've done a few retreats, cleaned our office area, played with glitter, and lastly we've bought lucky bamboo plants! I love these people I work with and can't wait for the Team of the Century to kick some butt at Dixie State College!!!!

I guess that is pretty much my summer in a nut shell, I can't wait for school to start so I can get a daily routine established and also meet new people!

My Wonderful Sister!

Today is August 24th, and 19 years ago my amazing and beautiful sister
Holly Marie Moat was born!

She is my sister, best friend, roommate, and shoulder to cry on. She's the one I'd call in the middle of the night if I was in trouble, she's my comic relief, my duet partner, my car pooling buddy and much much more! She's deathly afraid of mornings, and loves to stay up late. She hates carbonation and seafood too. She has more shoes than anyone I know (they are her weakness we all have them, and she also works in a shoe department.) She is selfless, full of charity, and cares deeply about her friends and family always! She loves watching the TV shows Psych, bear grylls, andOne Tree Hill. She is a Pandora Radio addict and a love song..well she loves love we'll say that :) If you were to ask her today what her favorite song is however, she would not be able to pick just one. She would end up saying: Last Friday Night by Katy Perry, Till the world ends by Britney Spears, anything Rhianna, and any Boyce Avenue cover!

She is a communications major, which totally fits her because she is definitely a people person! She loves The lord of the rings and spiderman saga, she also enjoys despicable me every now again. Her favorite colors are yellow and grey. She loves headbands, flower clips and also doing other peoples hair. She never leaves home without her phone, she actually never does anything without that phone so she loses track of it all the time. She loves to eat Jimmy Johns, cereal, mashed potatoes, strawberry and banana V8 juice, and cheese its (oh and word to the wise don't ever open her box after she first buys it...she'll kill you) She is still working on her meal making skills but she is the bomb at making brownies!!! She also does great with making scones, she is
the official scone maker of our home!

She has never dyed her hair, been to Disneyland, or been a Lady gaga fan. She has however had her heart broken more than once but has never stopped loving or being loved...she is one of the strongest people I know. She is really never afraid to speak her mind or confront someone who
needs confronting!

Well, this blog was to let the world know how great my sister is and how much I freaking love her!! Happy Birthday dear sister don't ever forget how special you are :)
