Finally, my pretty pink Dell laptop has come.

Oh, she is wonderful. And boy is she pretty. Ah.

Long, tedious school assignments, bring it on. Breaks in between classes + this baby = less homework (knock on wood).

P.S. She needs a name. Any suggestions??


Dumb Day 2

So today was SUPER overwhelming. English 101 is going to be TONS of work and I am really regretting that I didn't get that over with in high school. My instructor is very blunt and harsh. He seems cool, but he is super strict. My U.S. history class has 379 people (the majority of which are freshmen) in it. My professor for that class has a super cute personality. I admire her for teaching a class that size. I think that will be a fun class. Intro to Art was next. Only 179 people this time. Ha. My professor there is super super nice. She's from London and has an awesome accent. She said herself that this was going to be an easy class. Thank goodness. Basically, English 101 is the only class that stressed me out. However, other factors made my day not so great. Ironically, I am in a really good mood.


Day 1 Down

So I survived my first day of college. I found all my classes just fine, and even managed to remember where the library was. I'm not sure what to think of it yet...I know that once I start getting loads of homework, I will be way overwhelmed. Definitely not looking forward to that one. But as of right now, it's OK. Today, I had institute, world geography, and precalc. I went to Homecoming junior year with my institute teacher's son, so I already know and like him. My geography teacher repeats everything he says in five different ways and laughs at his own jokes (which, of course, are not funny). He seems nice, though. My precalc teacher is super laid back. That's all I had today. Tomorrow, I have English 101, institute, U.S. history, and art. Stay tuned to see how that goes.

I'm SO enthusiastic about college. Can you tell?


A Day in the Mind of Me

Today, I've thought a lot about random things. Here are some of them.

  • I'm growing up. This morning, I went to one of my good friend's farewell. It's super super weird having your friends get their calls and leave on their missions. Every time I hear about someone that I graduated with getting their call, it's another slap in the face, as if to say, "You're getting old!!" It's so weird. Everyone is growing up. And it's all happening so fast. And it's not just the boys. A that I had classes with throughout high school is engaged and getting married in NOVEMBER. What the. She's my age. 18. That's like me getting married in a couple months. I think she is LOCO.
  • Spencer is probably the biggest 2-year-old-that-can-get-away-with-anything-because-he's-so-stinkin'-cute on the face of this planet. He definitely keeps us entertained. Today while the sacrament was being passed...He was HILARIOUS. Definitely NOT the most convenient time ever. It's extremely hard to be reverent when you have a super cute big blue eyed little boy doing things like singing the eensy weensy spider and making various bodily noises without a care in the world. He was just so funny and my mom and I could not stop laughing. If you want the story, I will tell you. Ah I love him.
  • Missions change people. They transform silly boys into spiritual giants. Today in our ward, we had 2 brothers speak. One is leaving on his mission in a month. The other just got home. It was super cool to see how they interacted. It was also cool to see how much the RM had changed. Both of their talks were awesome...very heartfelt.
  • Jannae Jestes is a beautiful young woman. She is one of my best friends and I love her to pieces. I love listening to her stories and hearing her laugh. She is always so happy and she is definitely an example to me.
  • Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing is a great hymn. It is my new favorite, even though it's not in the hymnbook. It was played today during Relief Society (see, I really am old). The 3rd and 4th verses really hit home for me today.

(V. 3) Jesus sought me when a stanger,

Wand'ring from the fold of God;

He, to resucue me from danger,

Interposed His precious .

(V. 4) O to grace how great a debtor

Daily I'm constained to be!

Let Thy goodness, as a fetter,

Bind my wandering heart to Thee.

(Chorus) Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,

Prone to leave the God I love:

Here's my heart, O take and seal it,

Seal it for Thy courts above.

  • Blog things are confusing. I can't figure certain things out and it's extremely frustrating. That's my story.
  • I am very greatful for my piano-playing skills. They have definitely come in handy and have served me well. However. My music collection is boring to me now. Any suggestions for good piano solos??
  • I am in dire need of a haircut. I have split ends out the wahzoo and it is no bueno. However, I am attached to my longish hair, even though it lays limp and flat and stuck to my head, no body or volume in sight. Sigh....
  • Broccoli is delicious. Especially when it has melty cheese. Yum.
  • I might lose my mind in the upcoming weeks. School starts tomorrow. I work 4 days a week and teach piano the other 2. Squeeze in studying and school work, and that equals no social life. I'm really really hoping this is not the case. However, it most likely will be. To all my friends, I am sorry and I promise I still love you mucho. That goes for my familia too. They're going to get to put up with the stressed-out-to-the-max-running-around-like-a-chicken-with-it's-head-cut-off Kymber, and from what I hear, she is no fun, and I believe it. Lo siento.
  • I really dislike taking out the trash. It's one of my beloved household chores, and I really do loathe it. My poor mother has to tell me 42 times to take it out before I actually get around to it. Half the time I forget. The other half, I just don't want to, so I put it off until I forget. She just hollered from the other room asking if I had taken it out yet. No, no I haven't. Don't worry, Mom. Just as soon as I finish this post...
  • Fuzzy aloe socks from Bath and Body Works are the best. Wear them for a couple hours, and your feet are smooth as smooth can be. I have 3 pairs. They're wonderful.
  • Prayers are answered and peace will come. Plain and simple.

Well. This is all for now.


New Phone At Last

Today I got my long-awaited-for new phone. Behold, the LG Dare.
It is magnificent.
It's all touch screen, and I am in love.
My favorite part is the drawing pad, which lets me draw awesome pictures like this.
Pretty cool, I know.
My phone. It's a beautiful thing.


College Joys

Today, Katy took me to ASU to find all my classes and walk me through my schedule. Pretty much, it was scary and overwhelming, but deep deep deep down I know I'll be OK. Seriously, I don't feel old enought to be going to college. I felt so little walking around on that huge campus. Since when am I a college student?! I'm not old enough for this!! These were the thoughts racing through my head for those three hours in the 117 degree heat today. Ah!!!!! In less than a week, I will be thrown out of my sheltered bubble and into a world of immodesty, immorality, homework overload, loco professors, and stuff. I am not ready for this!! Mostly, I am not looking forward to not having a social life. I will be stretched and pulled between school, homework, studying, work (p.s. I got my job back at Milano's!!), and don't forget teaching piano. Hopefully I can find time to breathe. Saying that I will be busy is definitely an understatement. Sigh. Well. Only four years til it's all over. Blessed day. I miss high school.

Thanks Katy for taking time out of your day to take me under your wing and show me the ropes!! You're awesome!!


After Months of Neglect

So pretty much, it's summer and I've been a) busy or b) out of town. As a result, my room turned into this.On Saturday, I finally decided that this was completely unacceptable, especially since I'm pretty good at keeping my half of the room clean. I locked myself in my room with a dirty clothes hamper and two trash bags, not sure where to start. Four hours later...
I'm not a believer of making beds. Maybe when I'm older. While I was cleaning, I realized how small and storage-lacking my room is. I threw a lot of stuff out, thinking it would give me more room. Wrong.
I don't spend much time in my room, but now at least I don't have to dread going in there for fear of stepping on something or guilt for not giving it the attention it was in desperate need of.
Yay for cleaning!!
