Should I update my blog? No, there is too much, I will sum up:
-Came home in desperation for a job
-Working at interstate makes me wish I didn't have a job
-Went to NYC with my cousins and saw WICKED while nursing a bad sunburn
-I LOVE my nieces and nephews. Like seriously, they can be so annoying but I love them to death!
-Still don't have a life (as reminded by my parents every so often)
-My lovely computer crashed and (mostly because I was being so pathetic) a friend managed to fix most of it for me
-Found out that graduating in April is gonna be tough...::dies::
-I spent pretty much every weekend at my sisters' house cause they are far more fun than my parents (love my parents, just don't want to live with them)
-Going back to Utah in about 2 weeks... ta da!
-I'm turning 24 (yes, 2-4) in about a month...when did that happen? And why do I still not have a life?
-Bought a book called "The GRE Test for Dummies". And no, I'm not kidding. I'm about 1/3 of the way through it.
And that's my summer....in a wrap ;)

So there's not much to update about my life, but I'm rather bored this morning so I thought I'd try and think of something to write about :p
I had a real miracle in my life this last week as I prepared to teach the Gospel Doctrine class in church. (not a spiritual miracle...just a miracle, lol). I usually teach Temple Prep, but when the semesters change over the get rid of the "extra" classes for a few weeks and just divide the remaining teaches between the Gospel Doctrine classes. Three weeks ago, the departing sunday school president emailed us a schedule of who would teach when. I was assigned to teach with some girl I didn't know and it I was FREAKING out about it....I was really looking for *any* excuse to not do it. But of course I bit the bullet and got together with my partner and we planned the lesson out. She even told me that she was not looking forward to it either (it's intimidating to teach college students! Of course now I'm older than practically all of them....I'm old, lol), so that made me feel better, knowing it was not just me. So we were all prepared, went to church, sat through Sacrament, went up to the classroom, got set up...just as we're about to start, these two guys walk up and tell us that *they* had been assigned to teach that week! Not wanting to interfer with the good system of the church ( ::winkwink:: ) we graciously backed down and let them teach (the new sunday school president apparently didn't coordinate with the old one, lol). Anywho, small miracle I guess ;) I'll take what I can get :p
Still no luck on the job front. And that's all I really have to say about that.
Still SO hooked on Doctor Who that it's probably quite pathetic. Of course, this is how I always get when I find something new, I get addicted to it for a little while, lol. But I'm afraid this show is just going to go on forever and I'll never get my life back!!! ::sigh:: Now if only I could find someone (in this country who I don't just know over the internet) who watched the show so I could rant about it with them!! TOO MUCH IN MY HEAD :p
I've started going back to grandma after almost two weeks of practically no visits to her. I felt very bad about it, but I really didn't want to hear any more from her about how badly I need to find a job. Thankfully the last few times I've visited, she's cooled the subject down a lot. Matt and his family have been staying there this weekend while they are "between" houses so that was fun to be able to go over there and spend time with them as well. Ellie is getting so grown up, it's crazy...and she's got a little brother now!! I got to go to the hospital a day or two after Kayden was born and I saw him and held him!! He was so tiny! but at the same time he wasn't! He's doing so well and is so healthy, that is definitley a miracle :D When I held him, he still had an IV on him that was running through the top of his head :( I know it was for his benefit, but it just looked so terrible, I'm glad that they've been able to move the IV since then. Matt still doesn't know when Kayden will be able to come home, but he's doing so well, and with the family in the process of moving, it's probably a blessing that he's out of Tyrelle, but still in the hospital.
Alright, well that's all I got! Till next time, people...

I just finished watching the end of DW season 2 and I seriously was starting to cry when the Doctor and Rose said goodbye!! ::sob:: Like, I never cry in movies (with a few exceptions for church movies) and I NEVER cry in TV shows but oh dear I was tearing up so bad!!
I know Rose "comes back" somehow but dang, that was amazing acting by David and Billie!
okay that is all, lol...

Since I'm done with school and have nothing to do... I thought I'd blog about it, haha :p
I had this whole big goal of spending lots of time with my grandma once school was over, cause I kinda neglected her a bit this semester and I wanted to be able to visit with her and keep her company (you know, as long as I'm stuck out here and everything). But of course when I go to visit her on Friday, the only bloody thing she can talk about is how I need to get a job and I need to be more assertive and brag about myself and blah blah blah blah BLAH!!! That old woman needs a smack down! She has no idea how hard I'm trying to find a job and how *hard* it is for me to put myself out there! ugh. Anyway, I didn't stay long and just promised I'd visit the next day. So I go back on Saturday, hoping I can just sit there and play the piano and she'll be quiet. But NOOOO...my aunts are over having some kind of brainstorming meeting about Caroline's opera and so I can't play the piano without looking rude and I am once *again* subjected to chastisement for my lack of job. Needless to say I didn't stay long again, and promised to come back the next day. Of course I didn't go back today. Ugh, I'm such a bad granddaughter. But seriously, I don't want to hear it anymore! I get it every time I call home (which I'm not doing anymore, btw) so I'm just going to avoid my grandma as well until I find a job. Easy enough...
Of course this leaves me with even more free time to apply for jobs. I applied for quite a few yesterday, even went driving around and wrote down info and talked to people about jobs. I applied at Zupas....mmmm I love their soup, lol.
To pass the time when I'm not job hunting, I've been watching the earlier seasons of Doctor Who and they are so fun!! Why on earth didn't I watch them sooner?? The first (nine) doctor was perfect! I loved him LOTS more than I thought I would and he totally won me over, lol! And I love Rose! Gah! She's fabulous! And then of course I get into the "David Tennant" seasons and ohhhh boy, I was DYING laughing!! Just in the first episode where he is "possessed" by this lady and he has to act all feminine...oh dear, my roommates probably thought I was mad, lol! It was just so SO much fun! I'm about halfway through the 2nd season and I never want it to end! Of course I still get new episodes every week with Matt (Eleven) and he is still my favorite, even though David is a very VERY close second, lol :p And I'd even say that Christopher is a very VERY close third! I think they're just all so fun in their own special way :)
I'm trying to keep my mind off of home, but it keeps wandering there anyway. I had a big dream last night that I was home and when I woke up it was rather depressing, lol. But I really just have to remind myself that if I was hope right now I would just be wishing I was gone...I don't want to go live there, just a visit would be nice. I miss my siblings and my nieces and nephew :( It's weird to think of not being home for summer...I've NEVER done that before. ::sigh:: I know, I know - "Liisa! you're 23! It's about time to be independent!" Shut it! I'm the youngest (well, second to youngest) and I just want to be home sometimes, okay?
