funniest story ever

So one of the faculty members came in today because even though she has set her document to print portrait, it keeps printing in landscape, so I took a look at it, and though well…just for fun lets tell it to print landscape and guess what, it printed portrait!!!! So I told them their printer/computer hook-up is crazy, has some identity issues, but other than that it will work. Ha ha ha. Funny stuff.

so i feel SO much better! I went to see the Dance Trainer for the Y today, and he is a miracle worker. He did some things to my neck, re-aligned it kinda, and did a little bit of pressure applying, and it feels a lot better. huzzah.

another note- I swore I would never do my hair like this:
you know, the new look that is in, the pompadour look that is in? the one with your bangs poofed forward? mine isn't as big as this girls is
but i have done it. why might you ask? well, its what they want our hair to look like for the jazz piece i am in tonight. and so as to make my life easier, i decided to do it for my hair today because i don't want to do my hair twice. lame-o i know, but oh well. and if i do say so myself, it looks okay. but i don't know if i would ever do it again. we'll see i guess. ta ta!

falling asleep at my desk

and i thought i had gotten a good night's sleep. well obviously it wasn't enough. tonight is the jazz performance. woot. i'm excited to the fact that i only have one dance. i am going to sit w/my fam and watch the whole show (well minus the few dances right before and right after when i will be performing) which will be exciting. i wish i could sleep a lot tonight before my 3 show marathon tomorrow, but it will all depend on what time i get to bed tonight, this b/c i am taking my dad to the airport early tomorrow morning. joy. but that means i'll have a vehicle for the next week. huzzah. and for now friends, that will have to do. maybe i'll post later as today is friday and fridays at work are slower than molasses in january.

Thursday, June 15, 2006


10: the time that i should be in bed, but i'm not, as well as the time we should have started the show, but didn't.
9: what time i was supposed to be at the high school, and what time i got home tonight
8: hundred milligrams of ibuprofin...the drug i have been on all day...

so yeah...dress rehearsal today. bah. maybe i'll update more tomorrow...but for now that should do, i am going to bed.

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

and there was much rejoicing

i have conquered the green monster!
hurrah, the mailing is done!!
i am so excited to be rid of it.
you have no idea.

Monday, June 12, 2006

kill me now

honestly. it would be so much better than what i am doing. i know i sometimes complain that work is too boring. which it can be, and as much as i love being busy...i am not excited to be doing what i am doing. i have finished collating the mailing, and now i am folding and stapling all of these green pieces of paper. bah. someday i will be done...but for now its just me and the green. save me!!!

i'm seein' green

green paper that is. not money. i am doing a mailing for the office, a 500+ mailing where i have to copy the newsletter, put a cover sheet on it that has the address on it, and then tri-fold it to be like pamphlet to mail. joy. i think i've done like much paper.

another note, i find that i get my hopes up really easily. see, last week i was eating lunch and i watched a girl from the flower shop on campus walk by with a bouquet of my favorite flower, gerbera daisies...and she was walking towards my office, my heart leapt and i semi-hoped that they would be for me, well i shouldn't have hoped cause they weren't. of course they weren't. i have no one that would send me flowers on a random day during the week. no boyfriend, and my p-rents wouldn't do that. maybe for my birthday, or after an audition or something, or even a performance, but for a random day to just give alishka flowers? not happening. so i shouldn't have even gotten excited, but i did. so now you know. really want to make my day? bring me a gerbera daisy to work and ask me out, or just bring me flowers. so yeah.

oh, an update, i had a date friday night. although (sad day) we didn't get to go up the canyon due to the ferocious weather. oh well, we made some good food, and played Life, which was fun. and we watched the wicked cool storm. it was a fun date, but i still like the other kid. sigh. and i think...that is all!

Friday, June 09, 2006


what a day. and it's only begun. i woke to go swimming, and swimming i did go, and then as i was getting ready for work and watching the Today show, it started to rain!! so then i ended up walking in the rain. oh, i did remember my umbrella, so that was good. what else is new, oh my date for tonight Q* called me last night to let me know 'the plan' however, i hope the rain doesn't affect our plans, although it could. you see we are supposed to make popsicle boats and have races w/them, and then we're going to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows and eat s'mores and watermelon adn hopefully it stops raining and dries out a bit. i wonder what we'll do instead if it doesn't stop raining...oh well. at least i'm not in charge. :D i thought it sweet that he called me though.

so there is one week to the jazz show (we finally finished the dance...) and then a week from tomorrow is the ballet show. CRAZY!! you should come. to the ballet, i don't care about the jazz, if you really want to come, call me. otherwise, come to the ballet on June 17th, 2006 at 1pm (to see me be Hansel) or at 4pm or 7pm to see me be an angel (but i'm always an angel..;) ) and a licorice stick. Definitely good times. I can get tickets on Thursday for you for $4, or they're $5 at the door...and it's at Mountain View High School, Center street in Orem. So yeah, if you need directions call me. so yeah...that's it. have a good day.

Thursday, June 08, 2006


In the streets…in the halls…in the RB. Man oh man did I have an awesome time last night.

I love dancing, always have, and hopefully always will. So last night I got to go dancing. On my way to the lab I did a little bit of dancing (maybe it’s cause I was listening to my mp3 player he he he). Then I got to the dance lab, and the minute I walk in and put down my bag, B* a friend from the ward asked me to dance. It was a waltz, and I absolutely LOVE to waltz. The last time I danced with B* he was in 180, awkward and not a very good lead. He is in 280 now, and is definitely better. So that was fun. Then I said hello to Duke, and made small talk and some other people asked me to dance. I love the cha-cha!!! So then later, Duke asked me to dance, and again it was a waltz. Now I mentioned I liked to waltz, and when I did it with B* it was fun and all, but let me tell you it was 10x more fun with Duke. However, it was kinda hard because the dance floor was so crowded, but b/c he is such a good lead, we didn’t run into too many people. ;) I think that dance was my favorite. I think what comes in second was when a rumba started to play. Now I didn’t know how to rumba, but Duke comes up to me, and says “Alishka, how many dances have you danced?”

Me: “um, 5-6 or so. Something like that.”

Duke: “Well I need to take a break, or I would dance this one with you…”

And then he proceeds to take me over to a friend of his N* and introduces us and asks him to teach me how to rumba. So I learned the rumba last night. Definitely one of my favorite memories. I like the rumba. It was fun. ;)

Then Duke gave me a ride home. Which was so sweet cause I live in the opposite direction from his place, but he still offered. Which was really nice. Then I got to bed on time, and woke up to do my daily swimming this morning. All in all, last night was awesome. Good memories. This is what summertime and college are about. LOVE IT!!!!!!

p.s. i love it when my boss visits other offices, and then comes back and tells me to go and see b/c of the cool dance pictuers. she was right. Lois Greenfield my new favorite photographer.


i wrote this yesterday, and then blogger went on the blitz, so here's yesterday's post, and then i'll post later today what happened after i wrote this. until then, enjoy my yesterday's thoughts. ;)

So 3 things, and then I have to get back to work.

1) I love doing cartwheels. I know weird, but in the place where I work, the hallways are just perfect for doing cartwheels, or any form of dancing for that matter. And I love it. I always check the hall and make sure no one will see me and then I’ll either do a cartwheel, or a leap, or something. It’s the dancer in me, I can’t help it okay? J

2) work has been awesome, in fact today I got to do 2 awesome things that I hardly ever do, so when I do them, I get really excited. The first one was I got to revamp our board in the hall that has all the faculty pictures on it. That was fun and took up a better part of the morning. The second thing I got to do was fix the printer by replacing the cartridge. Which is just fun. :D

3) I am going dancing tonight, and let me tell you I am stoked. I love dancing, especially with certain friends, and tonight should prove to be no exception. Also, I got asked to go on a date on Friday, with a friend that used to live in the ward. He’s cool and all, but not my crush. ;) At least I have plans, that’s new. :D

So yeah, life is really grand right now. I know what would make it even more grandioso, but if I told you, my wish might not come true. Enjoy your day

Tuesday, June 06, 2006

be assertive

so in reading The Board today, i came upon this question Board Question #25571, and decided that what it says is true. be assertive. girls like it, and me being a girl i like it. so if you're a guy i am speaking for girls (at least most of them) in saying that we like truthfulness, assertiveness, and dates. so go for it.

coolest thing ever

So I had THE coolest experience yesterday (Wed. may 31) at the MTC. Yep, you heard right, the MTC. You see, in Relief Society a couple of weeks ago they passed around a volunteer sheet for the TRC to be a volunteer to be an investigator for the missionaries. So I signed up for English (since I really don’t speak any other language). Well I got an email this week asking if I could come in on Wednesday, and I told I could, so off I went last night after work to go to the MTC. I have never, ever been to the MTC, but let me tell you, coolest place ever! It was so much fun! And I loved playing the part of an investigator. I listened to the first ‘discussion’ twice, each time listening and accepting, although one of the times I asked a question and the poor missionary wasn’t quite sure how to answer. I kind of felt bad. I also got taught the third ‘discussion’ twice, both times accepting to baptism. It was a weird feeling to try to be someone who has never heard about the gospel before. I can’t even imagine not having the gospel in my life. It has done so much for me, and I am extremely grateful for all that I have. Wow.

that's all.
