So this semester has been a rough one. I have three really boring teachers that all teach from powerpoint and never add anything else into their lectures. I learn more from reading the book than I do from my actual teachers...sad right? So this last week in my Microbiology class, we had a test and we got a copy of an old test, well two actually, and we only studied from those tests and I got my test back and I only missed 3 out of 50 which equals A 94 PERCENT! And the last test that we took, we also got the old tests, only we had like 4 of them and I only missed one (because it was a trick question) and I got 96 PERCENT! And before I started studying from the old tests, I got not that good of grades! So I was very excited! I might actually pass this class with a B which is what I need in order to get into the nursing program! In Chemistry I'm passing with an A which is amazing because I don't pay attention in that class whatsoever. Pathophysiology is a whole different challenge. Luckily the tests are take home tests and I am able to take a week to do them otherwise I would be failing for sure! That's my semester. Only a few more weeks until finals week and then I'm home free! For a couple of weeks. I got a new computer which is great! Oh and only 8 more days until Chris is home!

Little Gray Kittens Adventure...

This is my kitten. Her name is Little Gray Kitten and she is one of my most favorite kittens in the world. Last week she went missing on Tuesday or Wednesday and i looked and looked all over for her and I finally told my mom that I was pretty sure that she had gotten eaten by the coyotes and she wasn't coming back. Well, on Sunday I was helping Jessica finish getting dinner ready at her mom's house and I get this phone call. It was my mom asking me when all of my meetings are going to be over. I told her and I asked why. She said, "Oh the neighbors called, and" I interrupted her and said, "THEY FOUND MY KITTEN!" and my mom said, "Your kitten took a vacation to their house this week and they have her for you to pick up when you are done with your meetings tonight." Needless to say, I was so excited. I love this kitten so much. My coworker showed me the pictures of the kittens her cat had and I saw this one and knew it had to be mine so I told her that I called the gray one and nobody else could take her. So she saved her just for me. I went to go and pick up my kitten at the neighbors house and she (the neighbor) kept telling me how good of a kitten she was and that she didn't mind taking care of her at all. So the next time my kitten decides on taking a little vacation I know where to look for her first!

Erica Please Don't Kill Me!

Last night I was going with my roommate over to her mom's house to talk and I got this really random picture text from my sister...
with a note underneath it that said "Bwhahaha I'm so bored!" I was like what they heck are you doing haha. Then i got another one a few minutes later.....

And there was another one in between these two but that one takes a little bit longer to explain. Pretty much Jessica and I were dying laughing when we were driving and later when I showed the pictures to Jessica's mom and sister. It was pretty much the best thing that happened yesterday!

Family Home Evenings

I wanted to write this down so I can remember it for a long time. Tonight for family home evening, my aunt Tonie decided to do something a little different. She thought that it would be neat if we had a bonfire and sat around the fire and told family stories. Meme started with a story about her grandmother who lit the chicken coop, the porch, and a skunk on fire! It was a great story! Then my Popa, who doesn't really say too much told us some good stories about when he was growing up and doing chores with his dad and irrigating when his dad fell into the ditch and it was so great learning more about my family and our history. We also had Richard and Missy Bigler come over and they told some of their stories and it was a really fun night. We had "friendship stew" aka, dump stew, hot rolls, s'mores, and birthday cake because it was Julia's birthday today. It was a really fun family home evening and I hope that we can do something like that every year.

Thankful Post

My roommate Jessica's mom had this great idea. She has a wall in her house where everyone has to write one thing they are thankful for everyday on a post it note and stick it on the wall. I thought that was a great idea so for the month of November I'm going to add one or two things I'm thankful for everyday on this post throughout the whole month. This follows the scripture advice found in Alma 34:37-38 "And now, my beloved brethren, I desire that ye should remember these things...that ye humble y ourselves...and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you." I challenge anyone who reads this post to try and do the same thing. Think of one thing daily that you are thankful for. Then you will be greatly blessed.
