I love Caroline, I really do. But we have some alarm issues. Her dang alarm goes off about 5 million times before she wakes up, but I'll admit it has gotten better since last semester. So this morning when her alarm went off for several minutes without her getting out of bed, I assumed it was just the usual. But it just. kept. going. Eventually I yelled "Caroline! Turn it OFF!" but when she didn't respond I decided to just do it myself. When I looked over in her bed, Caroline wasn't even there! Haha, the silly goober got out of bed the first time her alarm went off and then forgot to turn it off. It's a good thing I love her.
Today was a really productive day. Unfortunately, it's also after midnight and I'm still awake...and I have an 8 a.m. class tomorrow. Gross. I went to class, cleaned part of my room, watched devotional, went to the temple, had a fantasticly long conversation with Megan, spent entirely too long at dinner, finished all my reading for all my classes for the rest of the semester, did the majority of my lesson plan for art class, took a quiz, and scheduled classes for next fall! Woooh, I'm exhausted just looking at that list. I almost forgot to blog, but have no fear obviously I remembered last minute.
When I got to the temple today I was suprised at the number of people in the baptistry. Normally it's pretty slow when I go on Tuesdays, but there were tons of people today. A lot of younger kids. So many boys that couldn't have been more than 14 or 15. TONS OF THEM! They were whispering to each other, and I wasn't quite sure they were even speaking English, but then again I haven't been around many people under 18 lately so I didn't think much of it. But then I found out they were from Germany! They had traveled as a ward young men and young women's to America for General Conference. They were the sweetest people ever. They made me fall in love with German people. They called me "Sistuh Hamituh" or something like that. Absolutely adorable. And the little boys were so gentlemanly. They insisted on ladies first. Stole my heart. I am so blessed to have gotten to meet the youth from Germany. I'm jealous that my friend, Ryder, gets to serve his mission in Germany! I told him he should find me a nice man while he's over there ;)
On my way home from the temple, I called Mom. Just like every Tuesday. Liv answered and I got to talk to her for awhile. Goodness I love that girl. She was sooooo excited because she ate breakfast at Taylor Swift's favorite restaurant in Nashville. Haha, and she an Elvis impersonator kissed her. Liv almost gave me a heart attack when she paused when I asked if that was her first kiss. Oh dear. Silly little Livi.
I ran into Megan when I got back to the dorms, and we ended up stopping in the stairwell and chatting for over an hour. That spot on the stairs has sort of become "our spot". Everyone passing by just laughs and says "y'all are here again?" Minus the y'all. People here don't really say that. Oooh! Speaking of the way people talk - Mom told me I sound like I'm from Utah. Yikes. Freshmen goal destroyed. Haha, oh well. I tried not to get the accent, but I guess it was inevitable. Anyway, my talk with Megan was really good. I needed that.
Then we went to dinner for wayyyy too long. Which is pretty normal for us. I laughed my head off. My friends are great. I think they should package up my pals and sell them as the best ab workout EVER! They would sell millions.
When I came home from dinner, I decided I needed to make up for not doing homework all day by working really hard. So I did. And I got a lot accomplished. Plus I was able to do my scheduling for next fall. It's looking good. Real good. However, my tiredness level is not looking good for tomorrow. It's 1 a.m. Class starts in 7 hours...
