I can't believe how fast the weeks (especially the weekends) fly by here! I've been at school for almost two months! Yet it still seems like I just moved in and that I've lived here forever. So let's see, what has happened this week...
First, it was my second of three weeks of mid-terms. I took my American Heritage Exam and my Child Development exam this past week, my Book of Mormon exam the week before and next week I'm taking my Physical Science exam. Then in another three weeks will be my next set of mid-terms. Oh the joy!
For FHE (family home evening) with my pseudo family, we learned how to latin dance. One of my "brothers" is from the Dominican Republic so he taught us and it was so much fun! It's really fun having FHE every week. It's nice getting to know our little family better :D Speaking of our family...we are in charge of Sacrament Meeting next week so Heather and I along with one of our brothers, are giving talks next week. We'll see how that goes...
Tuesday night was AWESOME!! My roommate Heather and I went with our friends Alec, Jordan and David to an a cappella show. It was so amazing! It is crazy what people can do with their voices. In addition to being entertained by Mister Tim's musical stylings, he also gave us a quick lesson on how to beat box. As we left the show Alec declared that he needs a mic. David suggested one of the toy ones with a spring in it so it echos. My friends are pretty much the most awesome people on the planet :D
Thursday was my most productive day all week. I spent about 4 hours in the Eyring Science Center (in 3 separate trips mind you) and a good 5 hours in the library (between two trips). I got all of my lab write-ups and a pre-write for my child development paper done in my first trip then I went back later that night and whipped out my 8 page paper in 2 1/2 hours. I was pretty proud of myself. My brain was fried but I left the library at 9 which was a full hour earlier than I was planning on :D Since I was so productive and Heather had gone out, I went over to my other friend Emily's dorm and we talked and learned about photosynthesis for a couple of hours. It was nice because we haven't really talked in what seems like FOREVER!!
Let's see, on Friday the highlight was definitely going to the temple with Heather and Jordan followed by hanging out with Heather and her friend Aaron. We went to the science center and wandered around campus for a bit before meeting up with Sydney and finding David and we headed over to the Creamery for ice cream.
Yesterday, Heather and I watched General Conference. It was pretty much amazing :) Alex and Sydney came over for the second session then we ate dinner and watched Pride and Prejudice. It was my first time watching that movie and I am now in love with it. Thanks a lot Sydney ;)
And finally today! Heather and I went with her brother and sister-in-law to the morning session. It is such an amazing experience to go and actually be IN the Conference Center. I LOVE General Conference weekend. It is such a great weekend :) Now Heather and I are just chilling in our dorm, talking to our families, well I'm trying to contact my family...they're not answering the phone :( Then we are going to go tunnel singing with some of our friends later tonight.
YAY! This post isn't too terribly long and I'm keeping up with one of my goals for this semester! We'll see how I do by the end.
