I love Halloween. It's a great time to dress up, eat chocolate, and have fun! This year I didn't really dress up as anything per se, but I kinda look like a character off the movie Hairspray. I'm wearing sweet sparkly tights, a skirt with a beaded necklace to match and a sweet auburn colored wig. I've always wanted red hair, and so this makes me excited. I've gotten some really funny reactions already today. My boss dressed up as a witch with a fake nose and wig and everything. It's awesome. I love my job.

After half time the temperature started to drop considerably. At this point we were winning 21-7. It was already a great game. :) Then...it started to rain, the rain then turned into a frozen rain, and then it started snowing! The flakes were small, but it was snowing. Before I knew it, I was in the LaVell Edwards Stadium in the middle of a white-out snow storm.
It was pretty intense. CPM and I braved the cold snow until the very end of the game and witnessed the Cougars pouncing their opponent 42-7. It was fantastic. The snow stopped pretty quickly after the game ended and our walk back was uneventful.
It just started snowing again. I'm definitely not a fan of snow in October. Snow in December, yes...but October? Come on people!!!!! It needs to feel like fall! :P Oh well. I guess I'll survive.
Life is good. We're getting closer and closer to the show, I'm really excited about it. It's going to be fantastic. :)
I think that's all. Yep, that's all. Have a good weekend y'all. Ciao.

Yesterday was a great day. I was worried that rehearsal was going to feel like a million years, but it didn't. It actually went pretty quickly and was rather enjoyable. Minus the fact that my triceps are extremely sore. I do a lift in the piece we were learning, and we kept trying to get the lift right and that meant doing it a bazillion times, thus the sore arms. Oh well. I'll get over it.
I also was extremely productive yesterday. Many times when I tell myself I'm going to be productive, it only sometimes works, yesterday it worked!!! I got everything done that I thought I would and was still ready for my date on time. :D
I went to Final Cut last night. It was really good. I had never been before and I was impressed by the films that were presented. I also watched "Waking Ned Devine" last night. What a great movie! It had a lot of humor, a little bit of a love story, and gorgeous Scotland countryside. Ah, what a good movie, plus I had great company as well. :)
Now it is Sunday. I am going home for dinner this evening to celebrate me dad's birthday and that should be fun. :) So pretty much I am extremely content and happy for it. Have a great day y'all.

I have been singing these three lines of this song for the past 2 weeks. Every time my mind is empty and I have nothing to do, say, or think about, I sing this song. I'm not even joking. I was in Wally World with my roommate Friday night, and all of a sudden as I was walking down the cereal aisle I burst out into song. A couple people turned around and looked at me, and my roommate thought I was crazy. But hey, that's who I am, and I'm not changing. ;)
In other news Sunday's sessions of Conference were amazing. All of the talks were amazing, but three that really stuck with me were President Eyring's, Sister Beck's, and Elder Oaks' talks. They were all amazing and I was greatly impressed with all of them and what they had to say.
School was good today. Nothing thrilling. I turned in my 4-page review of World of Dance. It wasn't the nicest review I have written. In fact, I was downright mean in some places, but it had to be said. In some ways I am glad that it was for my English class and not for a dance class b/c most of my dancing friends will never see it. :P
I really need to do some Econ reading, and study for my quiz on General Conference. Have a great Monday night y'all. :-D

I am currently extremely content. I have accomplished many things today. Today was the first two sessions of the 177th Semi-Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Those first two sessions rocked! I made my traditional orange rolls for breakfast and commenced sitting on my couch typing like a mad woman taking notes for my Teachings of the Living Prophets class that is going to have a quiz on Conference. :S So far, I feel pretty good about it. Anyways.... Elder Henry B. Eyring is the new counselor in the First Presidency and Elder Quentin L. Cook is the new Apostle in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Rock on!
I then made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for lunch, and CPM (who has been sick, the poor kid!) came over, and I took good care of him so that he'll get better faster. Chicken Noodle Soup is the for sure cure all, after all. :) Then during the second of session of Conference I was especially touched. Elder Wirthlin was amazing. For being so old, and struggling with his health he gave a really touching talk, and then when his shaking was getting almost to be almost too much for him, Elder Nelson stood up and helped him. Pretty much the sweetest thing I had seen all day. Elder Hollands talk also rocked the block. It was about how the church is Christian and he spoke on how Heavenly Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are all separate beings, and how they have to be. It was an amazingly strong talk. I loved it.
The rest of my evening was spent relaxing, writing a 4-page review of World of Dance, and watching Second-hand Lions with my roommate, her brother, and CPM. It was an enjoyable evening. :-D

Alishka went to homecoming in high school. With a kid that we'll call superman. Now, superman was a great friend and they had a grand ol' time. Nothing happened from it.
Superman went on a mission. Alishka wrote superman like a good friend (she writes all her friends. ask the postman, he knows), but there was no promise of waiting or any of that jazz. In fact, Alishka only thought of superman as a good friend. Nothing more, nothing less.
Superman came home from his mission and was very insistent on seeing Alishka as soon as he could. They got together one afternoon and talked in the park for an hour. Alishka started school again and life started to get busy.
Alishka went on dates with other boys. She forgot about superman. Then one day superman called her. And asked to hang out with her. Alishka was a very busy person but told superman he could come and watch a TV show with her and her friends. superman came, but so did other friends and boys, Alishka couldn't just devote herself to superman, she had to be a good hostess!
The evening was a success and Alishka once again forgot about superman. She still liked other boys you see. Well. The next day superman called again. Alishka told him she was busy that weekend, as was the truth, and he said he'd call in a few days to set up something for the next week.
Alishka forgot about superman again. Her focus just wasn't on this super hero. He called. She explained her schedule for the next week, and he asked if he could take her to dinner the next night (aka tonight). Alishka said yes. After all, he's a great friend, it's a free meal, and they hadn't really been on a 'date' yet, so she should give him a chance right?
Unfortunately for superman, his story will probably end here. Alishka just isn't interested in such a super hero. She has her eyes set on other fish in the sea. Specifically ones that don't have to drive 1/2 an hour to see her, ones that are really attractive to her, and basically, ones that hold her attention. So off she goes to be a good friend and enjoy dinner and conversation with an old high school buddy, and hopefully without leading him on.
*okay so really, he is a nice kid. And I do like him as a friend, a brother even, but as a boyfriend? Right now, me thinks not. I just don't like him like that at all. I'm just not that into him (no matter how much my mother wants me to be) and would rather we just stay friends. I hope we have fun, like friends should, but without me leading him on. I hate breaking boys' hearts... sigh.

I really like this quote. A lot. I think it is amazing, and true to boot! :-D
