So I visited Rexburg, Idaho. I am still here and I can't fall asleep, and I realized I haven't blogged in awhile. (I only thought old ladies and moms could use that word, but it turns out I can say it too!) So, it has been good up here. I got here, gave Kendra a super super big hug!! And then I went to say hello to JT Hurt, and hung out with him for a little bit. And on Saturday I woke up, took cousin Skyler to Ramirez's (best freaking Mexican restaurant in Rexburg) and then went over to Lauren's apartment, who was soooo happy to see me!! She was probably my favorite person to hug when I saw her. We watched Psych and then I went to her Stake Conference. Then after that, I went on a date with Skyler's roommate, Evan, who is so precious. He's still like a little boy and just has the purest face I have ever seen. We went lazer tagging and the gentleman that he is, guarded me. It didn't help much because I came in second to last on our team. But it was okay, I'm glad that one of my skills is not lazer tagging. It would be nice to be good at it, but I guess it doesn't look too good on a job application. Then we went to this pretzel place and got gooood pretzels and came back and watched Singles Ward the movie, and I forgot how funny that movie actually was, especially watching it and being in the Singles Ward. But then I went back to Laurens apartment and we watched Leap Year, which was super predictable but really cute and actually kind of funny. But I fell asleep while Lauren and Kylie were talking, and then kept waking up because Kylie was still sitting where my feet were and I felt bad if I extended them, but I kept doing that in my sleep. But then on Sunday, I went to their Stake Conference and then visited Jordan, Will, Matt, and met Matt's little brother Joe, who is adorable. Then we went back to Lauren's apartment, made spaghetti and homemade meatballs which were scrumptious! And then I went back to Jordan's apartment, and hung out there until curfew, and then came back to the yellow house and talked to Kendra for a bit. I miss Rexburg, but only because of the people, I don't miss the school or sharing with girls at all, but I know I have to come back. Eventually.....

So yes, I did go to Montana. Everyone says, "You're crazy!! Why did you go?" or "Why are you going?" Yes it was for a boy. I've never done that before, and let me tell you, would not change this past weekend for anything!! Unless it was my future husband. But seriously, it was an awesome experience to go up to Montana again.

I am working at Dr. Rummler's Dental Office. No, I do not ever want to be a dental assistant but you know, it's not as bad as I thought. I was pretty sure that I was going to be sitting down all the time, but I hardly get to sit down, it's so nice! I am always doing something and I always have to think ahead. That's the difficult part is planning ahead in my head of what I need to do next, whether it be setting up the patients next appointment, sterilizing instruments, setting up the room for the next patient, developing films in the dark room, wiping down the instruments, mounting films, answering phones, assisting Dr. Rummler, and yada yada yada. It is so nice to have a job right now.

I think I might want to be a movie specialist and just dream about something and then make a movie about it. Because seriously....I have the WEIRDEST dreams. For example

Well lemme tell you, I have not had a great weekend like this in a long time!!! Not counting going to California for a couple days obviously. Man, I cannot wait until I get home, I miss it so much. Anyways...so there's Kyle Smith and Brian Ward in our little family ward up in Rexburg, Idaho. They are the sweetest guys. Well mostly Kyle. He's going to be some sort of politician and spending America's independence day with him was a hoot. He's all about America and the most patriotic guy I've met. Anyways so him, me, my roommate Megan, and Brian all went out on Friday. Kyle is such a sweetheart that he invited us to go since everyone in the house left for the weekend. He invited us to go river rafting, which him and I did, and then Megan and Brian went four wheeling. Talking with Kyle alone was really nice, he talks a lot. He's going to be a really good and generous politician. He paid for my snacks. Anyways, it was so nice just floating down the river for a couple hours with him. My Indian name was tree bearer and his was running water. The gross part about it was all of the bugs that were attached to my legs....DISGUSTING. I could not stand it! Then we came back and watched Red Eye with Jon and Sydney, and that was nice.

Until I get to visit California. You do not realize how much you love home until you have to live in a cold cold place such as Rexburg. Today, Thursday June 17th, the weather was freezing. I am so excited to see Chris, my family, and Becca. That's really who I am going for. I cannot wait!!

Today I went to church, one half of an hour late. That was not my fault but my roommates. They take an hour to get ready without a shower. It takes me 15 minutes to get ready without a shower. I know right? You're probably wondering, "Karina, how do you do that??" Well my friends, talent. Pure, raw, talent.

Oh well science....I have always hated it, but the class I have...it's definitely a drag. Thankfully, I can have my laptop with me, so time goes by really quickly. I think he's talking about micrometers and how hair is .000000003 micrometers. Or something like that. And I am sooooo hungry.

I am actually starting to like my classes. Interior design class is AMAZING....as always. Book of Mormon class is well.....Book of Mormon class. Now these last two (since I only have 9 credits) are just awful. World Foundations is so fun, I love it! But because I think I understand it, and then I do terrible on the quizzes and the tests, it just makes me a little frustrated. And then Science is just lame. I hate it. No one likes that class anyways. Oh, and that's Izzy and Jon, my old FHE Bruddas. I love them, sometimes.

You'll know it. I have heard way too many stories of people getting engaged and breaking it off. This is of course because they date for about 2 months, and then get realize that they don't actually want to marry that person. Seriously, take a little bit longer than that!! It's ridiculous. Marriage seems nice and all, but I've heard it's a lot of work. Sure it's magical once you get started, but then reality hits, and BAM. You are 19 and have no idea how to pay the bills, do your taxes, and especially cook! That is why I definitely will be waiting until I figure out how to do all those things and take care of myself. Which will be around the age of 25?? But I can't plan it, so we will let that one plan itself. And if some guy tries to propose to me, and really wants to, and I'm freaking 19, then he's going to be waiting a long time. But who knows. There's too many girls getting married to RM's and I'm sick of it!!! Girl's get a life! But if you love him, then you can wait a little longer. Because if you love them now, you will still love them 4 or 5 years from now.

thats me! i dont know why it is, but it just pains me to admit it that im addicted. especially at school, its even worse! i swear im busy at school, its just hard when i have to use my computer for everything, and all i have to do is click: NEW TAB. easy as that. and its even harder when conversations include things about facebook such as status updates, picture comments, yada yada yada.

It has been just okay. I love my teacher and my class discussions, but homework? Not so much. My favorite class would have to be World Foundations class. It's a lot of work but it's college, it's a lot of work!!! I'm only registered for nine credits and it's not because I'm lazy, the classes that I needed were all full. The school's getting more and more kids coming in so that's no bueno for me, who is still a freshmen, at the bottom of the food chain, and gets to register last.
I changed my major to architecture, so no more Child Development. The reason for that was because working at a daycare, watching my nieces, and being a nanny made me realize that as much as I love other kids, I want to give my children the most love. Yes, it seems too selfish to say, but that's what I want to do. So Architecture is something that seems pretty interesting to me, and I know it's a lot of work, and it's being a type of engineer which I wanted to avoid. But it's in my blood. And I would like to have a challenge other than something like memorize the developmental stages of a toddler. I want something fresh in my mind, and who knows....it could being an architect? or stay at home mom? (hopefully not) or flight attendant? (that would be nice, yes?)
But my house is wonderful here in Rexburg, Idaho. It sure has its kinks, like there's a special way to open the front door because it expands and contracts due to the weather, the hot water went out one night and that calls for a cold shower, the paint peels off, the lights occasionally flicker when it's hailing, and the fridge sometimes doesn't close all the way. But you know what? I freaking love this house to death! It is so adorable, these kinks do not bother me at all and I love all my roommates. They are so lovable, always want to have a good time, and are the sweetest people ever! We mesh in our own different ways, but I feel bad because since there are 10 girls upstairs, I can never remember who I tell what stories. I usually start talking about an inside joke that was with someone else to someone else, and they are definitely lost. I'll get the hang of it in a little bit.
School's great, life is great, I'm coming to visit California for my 19th birthday! (I can't believe I'm going to be freaking 19!!) and I miss Chris. That is all.

One thing that they should really think about fixing is the byu-idaho website. I think this is the first time that I have actually hated byu-idaho. well just their website. when everyone tried to get onto their account the server just didnt know what to do with everyone and crashed. thankfully my friend, kyle's, computer was working and he was on facebook at the time. so he registered for my classes. i just dont want him getting the wrong idea that i like him back. yeah thats right i said back. he has already asked me out to dinner. and we have a month!!! were not even up there!!! but anyways.....i owe him a back scratch for registering for me. but here are my classes.

Hello!! Yes I donated a pint of blood. And yes I was terrified, but I did it. I got there and they asked me to fill out this paper work and that paper work. Then I went into the booth to get all of medical stuff out of the way and answered a couple questions to make sure I didn't have any foreign or sexually transmitted diseases and all those type of things. So, then I went out onto the table to give to the needy that need my AB blood. (my mother still doesn't know if it's positive or negative, but I figured they wont care too much, just as long as it's healthy blood.) so then I am placed right next to my boss, Joyce, who is asking how she is doing and making sure she is perfectly healthy to give blood. I'm probably there for about 10 minutes just squeezing the ball every 5 seconds and I think I am doing okay and then I look down at my arm and it's just a nasty yellow puke color. Not something that would look pleasant on any dress for a bridesmaid, but then I felt a little bit better when almost everyone else had this happening to their arm. So then I just laid on the table for awhile and then got up and started walking to where the food and water was.

(that's rexburg) i dont know why i love it so much. i did miss my family and the warm weather buuuuuuuuut.....i have a special place for rexburg. it is because i only spent 3 1/2 months there and it was just new and exciting. but i hope i have the same feelings for rexburg as it does for me when i go back. but im rooming with kendra!!! the third love of my life. yeaaah!!! and erin!!!! we will see if she joins us. she BETTER.
