definitely not summer school

School has officially begun and it is definitely not summer! Today it is a balmy 21 degrees. It started snowing on the way to class today! Thank goodness for warm coats and winter gloves!

I'm enrolled in lots of "fun" classes this semester. I have a sewing class, the Book of Mormon part one, American Heritage, Math, Genealogy, and in the second block, I will be in a Body Weight Management class. I'll be honest, I'm a nerd and math is my favorite class. Thanks to my lovely Mr. Q in high school, I will never be able to take a math class without enjoying it. There aren't many things I miss about high school, but he is definitely one of them.

My roommates are amazing. Carmen and Dunique are originally from Haiti, so they speak Creole (which is crazy sometimes when they start laughing at their own jokes!) but they have since moved to New Jersey where they joined the church. Taylor is from North Carolina, and we LOVE to laugh together. She is patiently waiting for the moment she gets me addicted to the show Friends. Kassie is from Illinois and was baptized this past October. She is a sweetheart with such a great desire to do what's right. The girl I share a room with is Kimberly. She is also from California, not far from where I'm from! She makes amazing Mexican food (probably because she is Mexican and she's just a great cook.) Each one of these girls is so sweet! I am definitely grateful to have them around<3

This past weekend I went down to Utah (again. 3rd time is the charm!) to visit a few cosmetology schools. I fell in love. There is one school in particular, the Davis Applied Technology College, in Kaysville that I felt really comfortable at. The students were all really friendly, the program seemed well organized and fun, and it was in a great location. Plus, tuition is AMAZING for a cosmetology program. I don't want to make this decision without my Father in Heaven though, so I will be taking it to the temple, praying about it, and doing all I can to go on the path the Lord would have me go.

While in Utah, I hung out with Braden and Ashley of course! We had quite the adventurous movie marathon. Most people have probably seen the Batman movies already, but this was my first time. First one, pretty good. I liked the casting, story line, costuming, etc. Second one.. SCARIEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!! (Granted when I  have watched Insidious with Jasmine, but I watched it behind a blanket. So I didn't actually "see" it.) The Joker is so scary! He freaked me out, so of course I got laughed at with. ;) I liked the twist with Bane in the third movie. I think I'm going to stick to my beloved Marvel super heroes though!

Monday Braden and I went to see the new Annie, which was really cute, then we made banana bread! I was so proud of his domesticated-ness. They turned out really good! Of course the whole weekend "we" (he) watched football while I did homework. But we enjoyed hanging out with each other, and I am grateful for the wonderful friends I have in the Dunford family.

I learned though. No photos during games. doesn't work out very well;)

Although cold on the outside, I'm warm in my heart. I am truly blessed.
