A Reel Employee?!

So today, I had a few minutes to stop and breath. It's my last week of high school. Friday is my last day and I graduate on the 28th. I am so excited, but nervous. I know what I want in life, but there are thigns that come unexpectantly and I dont know if I am prepared for those bumps in life. But bring it on! So amongst all my studying and homework doing because of finals week, I am a little stressed, sleep deprived, busy, and sometimes lazy about other things.
It has been a relatively niec week. The wheather has been amazng and in the 90s. I now only have four classes total, two each day. I graduated from seminary on sunday. It was a bitter-sweet moment. I had to speak at graduation. that was an interesting day. But again, dont have time. gotta go study for AP stats test for tomorrow. but anyways, because I graduated from seminary, I dont have to go anymore. and because I went to france I dont have to take my french final, which has been heavenly not to study. I dont even have to come to class. so coming home at 11 on one day and not going to school till 11 is my schedule. its great. the classes i do have left, I have already done my finals too, so all i have left is stats and I'm golden. can't wait for that to be done with. anyways. because I had so much time on my hands this afternoon, I decided to go do some job searching. I had heard from one of my YSA friends, that the Reel theatre was hiring. so I got right on that. I went over there, grabbed the application, filled it out in my car, was on my way home, and Seth, the manager, called me even before I got home and told me he wanted to interview me today at 3. so I got back over there, and had the interview. It went pretty well I think. He said I have pretty good odds in geting hired. so i am so pumped about that. he seemed to really like me and impressed with me. He's a family friend, so he already kind of knew me anyways. which I think helped alot in my position!! anyways, he said that he would be letting me know soon if i get the job or not. so I will definitely put a little post up on here if I get it or not. It is going to be a busy rest of the week, busy weekend, and a busy next week cuz of graduation. I am in charge of decorations at graduation because of my GPA and its a huge responsibility thats keeping me from alot of my fun activities and things that I want to do. But its good for me. I need to stay busy. anyways. hope and pray all of you that I get the job, and if i do, you SO have to come and visit me. :) well not the first few weeks, cuz I really wont know what i'm doing and it may seem weird to come and watch me make a fool of myself. haha. anyways, its been a very eventful last month. I have joined the singles ward officially. I had gone to a few FHE nights. I had gone a few activities with some of the girls from the ward, and went to my first church last sunday. It was a great thing for me I think. I think i'm ready to move on to bigger and better things. things that I know are the best for me right now. Relief Society was good, and it was an amazing lesson that i needed to hear. I know thats where i need to be right now. I have clicked perfectly with the girls there and have had the best few weeks with them. I love them so much. I havent really clicked with the guys yet though. but i'm okay with that. I'm not gunna date serious until i get off to college. so here's to a great summer!!!!! i cant wait. best time of the year. I'm already craving Sonic happy hour everyday, I'm getting a tan on my legs, I get urges to go to the lake often, I might have a job, I have a lot of dates alreadty planned for the summer and its gunna be so much fun. love all you guys and hope to see you soon and hear from you soon. :)

RIP Raven Elizabeth Jeffords

Dear Raven,
I had the great opportunity to know you Raven. I miss you and will always love you and keep you dear to my heart. I remember when we were younger and we played at your house all the time. I can clearly remember one day in particular. It wasn't a special day in particular. It was another day with you. We had played with your lizards and had snacks for the day. We decided to go outside that day in your backyard. We chased butterflys and giggled as we played with them. I remember it was almost summer and the sun was out and bright that day. Dont ask me why, but I remember this specific thing about you and I have never been able to forget it since I heard that you had Leukemia and since I heard of your passing.
Your hair was down to your waste. It was golden brown and curly. I just remember looking at your hair and the sun was almost reflecting off of it was so shiny. You had the most beautiful hair and I have never been able to let go of that image in my mind about you. You were the reason why I wanted to grow out my hair and have beautiful gorgeous hair. Recently when my hair was incredibly long, I would often think about you. When I was ready for it, I decided to donate my hair to locks of love and thought about you constantly in the whole process. Thought about all those little girls out there that used to have gorgeous hair like you, but now dont, due to cancer, just like you.
Since you've been diagnosed with Leukemia I always thought you were here to change my views on life. But you weren't. You were here to change the views of everyone's views on life. You always had a smile on your face, no matter what. Even when you had no hair, when you were in pain, or when you had nothing going right in your life you always were so happy, smily, positive, and sweet to everyone. I loved that about you.
Once we grew up, and the wards split up, and you were diagnosed with Leukemia we never really continued to spend time with each other. But I continued to see you as the beautiful, sweet, and loving friend that I have.
You passed away last Saturday and I was truly sad that day. Once I heard that you were gone, I cried, and thought, "who's gunna be the happy smily girl in my life now?" But I have done alot of reflections and I have decided that I am going to be happy and cheerful just like you were. I'm gunna be the happy person in my life. I need to be grateful for what I have and always have a smile on my face cuz I will never know what kind of difference I will have on someone, like you did with me.
I could go on and on about all that I learned from you and how I am changed woman because of your life in my life. I know that you are happy now. I know that you have your beautiful hair back and you can smile with your Eternal Father now. I want you to know that I love you. I miss you. I am grateful for you. God be with me until we meet again!

Senior Skip Day!!

Senior skip day was on the 29th of April. it was a wednesday. it was amazing!!! i never thought i would love senior skip day. i just thought it would be another day spent alone and spent on the computer. :) but i decided to make the best of it and got friends together and planned things. so heres the low-down on what i did and why is it considered AMAZING!!...
I woke up about 6:30 (i know. lame. i didnt sleep in. but if you knew me better you would know it wasnt a big deal for me. I cant sleep in very well. I go to bed early and wake up early. so i wa okay with this early rise.) and went to the rec center with Mel. It was so much fun, but more uplifting and in great need of than anything. when Mel and I were little we spent alot of our time either at her house or at the rec and we havent been there together in such a long time. it was fun to remember the good ol days and things we used to do. funny how it all works out. but we sat in the hot tub, the deep pool, and the warm pool just talking the whole time. we talked about college, life ahead of us, having kids, friends, the past, life in general, things that we struggle with, and friends that have hurt our hearts deeply. it was so much fun. i just have to add a side not right here.... I LOVE YOU MELANIE!!! you have always been the friend that i can go to and talk to stuff like this. we have had some really fun moments full of laughter, but we have been filled with deep conversations like this and thats why i freakin love you!! you have been my friend since I was four and we are still the best of friends today...... so once we spent 2 hours there we were off to Chelsea's house for breakfast. we made a load of a breakfast but it was a delicious load! we had, peach and strawberry milkshakes, lemonade, eggs, sausage, toast, and german pancakes. YUM!! good times friends. heres where i add a side note on Chelsea..... I LOVE YOU CHELSEA!!!! you and i clicked right from the beggining. we never knew each other even existed before feshman year english class with Ms. Thomas. I will never ever forget those laughs. hahahahaha. thats where i learned the art of having a whole conversation in alphabet signing and so much more. we have stayed great friends since then. and you know why? becasue you're freakin amazing chelsea. you're so sweet and i love the way you make me feel about myself. you always put a smile on my face and i'm waiting for the day when you dont. :) jk. but i just have to tell you, the day after i had my conversation with you know who and was depressed to no end, Mel wasnt there to comfort me and you filled that spot with no hesitation and just let me spill. sometimes thats all i need. is just someone to listen to me. you really made me realize that YOU'RE AMAZING!!! i could go on and on about you my friend. i just have one more thing to say, we're gunna rock BYUI. best roomies in the history of roomies. love ya...... so after breakfast we just had to stop by at Curves and say hi to Sister Voigt at work. it was a good idea to stop and talk to her. we needed to talk to her about some things and she needed to talk to us about some things. it was cool to here her advice and to talk to her because shes THE BEST!!! so then we were OFF TO THE RACES!!! we drove to the boise mall and had some great laughs. we had fun going into Sephora and trying on all the makeup. we looked and smelled stunning walking out of there. we took some funny pics in forever 21 and then decided we better get to the movies since the movie was starting in 20 minutes. we got lost for a little bit, but this moment made me remember the talk in general conference about if you know where the temple is you will never be lost. thats so true!!!! we were lost in boise but knew that if we found the temple we would know where the movie theatre was. so i knew exactly where to go to get to the temple. we found it and voila, found the theatres. it was pretty funny. we watched 17 again. and here's where i add a side not about zac efron..... I LOVE YOU ZAC!!!!! hahah JK. but seriously. you're so good looking i just want to kipnap you..... but that was a great movie to see. it was funny, it was cute, it was inspirational, and it was zac in it. perfect! anyways... that was my novel edition of senior skip day.
any kids out there that havent had their senior skip day, all i have to say is.... DO IT!!! i skipped so many important classes it was almost funny. but i had so much fun, and it was so worth it. i dont regret skipping what so ever. dont hesitate when your senior skip day comes up. you will never regret it. promise.
