People are the motivator of this blog. I have a longs layover here and had had the chance to observe many people. I saw young couples and families traveling together and slightly envy them for what they have. I saw people who look like bikers. I saw a guy covered in hickeys. I saw rednecks. I saw people traveling alone and using their computers and iPods for entertainment. I had the opportunity to talk to a few people: a mother traveling to see their children, a guy who just visited his girlfriend, an middle-aged gentleman traveling to see his parents. It was so nice talking to these people. I find their stories fascinating. I initially made fun on one gentleman in my head. Needless to say that as I was eating my WolfGang Puck pizza I was shocked when he sat at the table beside me and started to talk to me. I had a nice conversation with the gentleman and felt guilty for making fun of him.
I am starting to ramble. The point of this blog is simply that it is great that we are all connected as members of the human race. We are all so completely diverse. Things such as love, family, and self-improvement motivate us all to keep going. I love the fact that we all seem to want to be our best according to our own personal belief system. Diversity is a wonderful and beautiful thing.

On the bright side of thing I fly home in less than 48 hours. I love my family. I really do believe that my family gives me so much strength. As I have gotten older I have begun to realize how important family really is. I am blessed not only to associate with the best people on the planet, but to be related to them as well!
I really do have a lot to be grateful for. Life really is grand although I don't always see all the beauty it holds. It takes talent to always pick out the best/good things in life and to not pay close attention to the negative. Things don't always go my way and that irritates me a ton. However, I believe I am being provided with the experiences I need to become the best person I am capable of becoming.

1. Forgive! I had already learned this lesson but I am a grudge holder. I ex-friended one of my friends multiple times However, I was lucky that this person always forgave me and was willing to deal with my crazy.
2. Be your best self! It is okay to wear baggy clothes and not do your make-up every now and then. One must realize that these occasions should be few. My friends taught me how to love myself enough to care. Now, I try to look my best.
3. Be flexible! I learned that it doesn't always matter what I am doing as long as I am spending time with the people I love.
4. Listen! Friendships are give and take. I love how these people are always willing to listen to me and hold me when I need to be held. It is just as great as a blessing to be able to listen to them. I am glad they trust me enough to talk to me about life.
5. Laugh often! One thing I absolutely love about my friends is that we always laugh when we are around each other. I don't think I have ever been around these people and not shared lots of laughs.
6. Work Hard and Play Hard! Life is all about balance. I hated working hard to get everything done, but it was worth it to be able to be in the company of some of the best people in Rexburg.
I don't even think I could write all the things my friends taught me. Some things are too personal and other things are so significant that they are not even measurable. It will be hard watching these people move on with their lives. I hope that we find a way to always be a part of each others lives no matter how many miles we live away from each other. No matter how things turn out, these people have truly blessed my life. I believe they are part of my life for a reason. The scary part is not knowing for sure if this is the only season they will be part of my life. Like I said earlier; I hope not. But, I am a realist and know that things don't always happen or turn out the way you want them too. So, Dear Friends: I love ya'll tons and Good Luck figuring out the rest of life.

I was driving home from work last night on the highway when suddenly I felt myself loosing control of my vehicle. It initially tried to slide into oncoming traffic. Luckily, I was able to prevent that from happening. I fishtailed between the two lanes for about 10-20 yards before I slid off the road. I slid into a sign and now the back of my car is messed up. I called some friends (I have the best friends in the world!) to come and get me. Before they could even get there, some other guys pushed me back into the road. The only damage that I can see is this dent and the back of my car is bowed out a little. My truck doesn't seem to want to stay shut all the way either.
However, I am thankful. I am thankful I did not slide into oncoming traffic. I am also really glad I had the sense not to yank my steering wheel and cause myself to flip. Although it sucks that I have to get my car fixed because of the sign, I am glad it stopped me. I don't think anything bad would have happened if it didn't, but you never know. Anyways, that was my drive home from work last night. I should have called in sick!

Maybe I am going crazy or thinking about things too much. I have had a ton on my mind lately and it feels like I have interpreted so many things in my life wrongly. I hate being wrong. However, I think one thing that is worse than being wrong is having no definite answer on rather you are right or wrong. In short, it sucks.
That is the end of my little rant. In short, life is good and I am fine.

I also know that I deserve somebody who can feel for me and fully appreciate me. Thus, I am glad this little "crush" is over. Because I know that somewhere, there is an amazing gentleman out there who is capable of making me so happy. He might not be what I am looking for, but he will be exactly what I need. Until this young man comes into my life, I am going to live it up! So, maybe I should thank ole boy for never taking me out. He gave me the opportunity to explore so many other roads. I am sure some of them will be rough, but if we didn't have rough roads in life how would we learn to appreciate the smooth ones?

I feel like I used to be a lot more confident in my decision making skills. Now, I feel like I am the worst at making decisions. I think I used to think more with my head and now I think more with my heart. I hate that. My heart allows me to hope for things when I shouldn't always hope for them. It is my hope that life will magically work out. It takes more than hoping to live a fulfilling life.
I have been having a super hard time thinking about this semester coming to an end. Two of my good friends will be graduating and leaving. I have a fear of being alone when they move home. The solution would be to make more friends now, but I don't want to. I want to soak up every moment I can with these amazing friends before they leave. The problem is, life happens and time flies. Before you realize it, you are out of time and you haven't gotten all the things you wanted to accomplish accomplished.
In my head it all boils down to priorities. I understand that school and family should takes highest priority. But, I would like to make it high up on other peoples priority list, especially when I make them high on my list. Does that make me high maintenance? I sometimes feel guilty for this having particular mindset.
That's my life. Don't get me wrong, I am happy, but I am also confused. That doesn't make me happily confused. I think it makes me more naive than anything.

I miss my family back home a ton. I am excited to see them all at Sandra's wedding. I really am so happy for Sandra. It will be fun to get to know Brent a little better when I go home. I am excited to see all the kids when I go home as well. Those little munchkins bring so much joy in my life. I have to get enough love to last me at least a year every time I see those kids. I have been doing a service practicum at a pre-school lately. I have fallen in love with those little kids as well, even if they are bad...and I mean really, really bad! I get to student teach next summer. I really am excited to work with the kids. I love them so much. It is amazing how much joy those little squirts can bring into your life.
Other than that, I am just living my life. We had our first snow in Rexburg this week. I am not excited about the winter, but it must come eventually. I smile because I think this will be my last winter here in Rexburg. However, I know I will miss this town so much. I really am doing okay here. I'll admit, I get homesick at times and wish I had my Charity here, but I have the most amazing friends in the world. They have no clue how much they have positively influenced my life and sadly I am too prideful to let them know the full effect they have had on my life. Yes, sometimes they make me so mad, but they are willing to deal with my crazy, and I love them for that.
This is my life...and I love it. I only have short period of time left in this season of my life. Soon, it will be time to move to another season. It is scary not knowing what that season is or where it will for sure take place, but I trust that my Heavenly Father knows better than me. It truly is comforting when you learn how to truly put your trust in him. Honestly, I don't know how much I really trust him with my life, but I am learning how to trust him more and more everyday.

1) I love to star gaze and cuddle. It would be amazing to do this as a date with someone I care about.
2) Tootsie Roll pops rock my world. I can successfully eat them without biting them most of the time.
3) I often dream of falling in love and being loved in return. When I wake up I am disappointed that my dream had to end. In reality, I am not sure I will really ever find someone to fall in love with that will love me back.
4) I can't wait to have kids! They are adorable. I think being a woman is great.
5) When no one is home, I run around in my undies or without clothes.
6) Sometimes I cry for the most ridiculous reasons.
7) I am paranoid and insecure. I hope for the best and usually assume the worst.
8) I love a good pedicure. I feel like such a girl when my nails are actually done and look nice.
9) Pizza is one of my favorite foods!
10) I fear I might not be a successful teacher.
11) I collect books. I really do love them and try to read often.
12) I care way to much about what other people think.
13) The library may or may not be my official second home.
14) I am shy.
15) I have a ton of walls up. When I get scared, paranoid, sad, feel vulnerable, or start feeling a little insecure I put up even more walls.
16) Part of the reason I fear the unknown so much is because I fear failure so much.
17) My family is the best. They rock my world.
18) If my life were a movie, it would be a comedy.
19) I have a hard time using commas appropriately.
20) I still wouldn't want to know if I had one more day to live.
There are 20 new facts about me. Hope you enjoyed.

It is much easier to look for a perfect man. Why? Because perfect is easily defined: attractive, strong (bulging biceps and all), smart, ambitious, great kisser, potential to be a great father one day, fun, outgoing, ability to love me even when I am crazy, loves sunsets and stargazing, clean, smells good all the time, makes me laugh, and can have intelligent arguments with me one minute and make me giggle like I am five the next. I am sure I could add many, many more things to my list. However, this is not addressing the issue. I am absolutely positive there are very few, if any, men who are deserving of the title perfect.
The issue is that I have no clue what the perfect man for me is like. I cannot define him. I don't think I can define him without getting to know him first. Maybe I should take the time to get to know myself better as well. Getting to know him and myself are both very scary things. I don't want to take the chance to get to know him. For taking that chance means chancing rejection. I have had enough rejection to last me for a lifetime. But even worse, what if as I get to know myself I find myself so flawed that I begin not to like myself?
Thus, I think I will maintain my stance that I should be overly picky and look for the perfect guy. It is easier and seems to be much less risky.

Growing up, I never believed I would experience something as "big" as 9/11. During elementary school I was prompted to ask the older generations about The Great Depression or Vietnam War. My nieces, nephews, and other children will ask me about 9/11. I will provide them with my story. No one who was alive and old enough to remember will forget where they were on 9/11. The nation's eyes were glued to the news coverage.
It is my prayer that we remember those who lost their lives and continue to do so. I also hope that we will be able to share our story of 9/11 with future generations. This is my plan! Then I will boldly stand and say, "I'm proud to be an American!"

So, I am out of school for 7 weeks. What's a girl to do when she has nothing to do? The answer...Cook. That's exactly what Megan and I did on Monday. We made pineapple steak, potatoes, salad, rolls, and fun drinks. We even set the table all kinds of cute. Our only downfall was that we are grill incompetent. It took us forever to figure out how to work the grill and get it lighted! I wanted to show you guys how cute we are, so here's a picture.

On Sunday, I spent the morning with Charity. That evening was filled with a water fight, dinner, and (you guessed it) more fireworks. These fireworks were unique though. It was put on by a group in Idaho Falls who protested to keep the 4th on the 4th. I felt as if I were at the Boston Tea Party. The people were yelling and screaming because, "This is proof that one person could make a difference." The fireworks weren't amazing, but they were fireworks.
On Monday I went swimming in a lake. It was kind of chilly, but it was fun. Everyone loves a relaxing day in the sun. Monday night I went to a carnival and more fireworks. They were right over my head and filled the sky as I laid under them. It was nice. Mom came with me Monday. She is way cute.
I really do enjoy having mom in town. I know she misses home and is so sad she isn't with all her grandchildren there. It is such a blessing to have her out here. Charity is really glad she is around too.
That was a brief overview of my weekend. In short, it was amazing! I am so glad to live in this amazing country and for all the freedoms we enjoy. We really are blessed.

I don't shower every day. If I don't shower, I don't have to worry about blow drying my hair. If my hair isn't done, is there really a point to putting on make-up? So lets take 15 minutes for the shower and 30 minutes for the hair and make-up and voila, I get to sleep in an extra 45 minutes. Then if I don't look good, I can't go play. This gives me an extra hour for homework or a nap during the day. Yes, I have thought the whole "no shower" thing through this much.
I love, I mean really LOVE, sleep. Sleep is one of my favorite things. I find myself sleeping whenever I can. Something about school makes me sleepy. Naptime during class should be mandatory.
I'm a texter. I made a goal one day to not text in class or while driving. I failed. Is it really my fault if I don't find the teacher engaging enough to keep my attention?
My diet is horrible. There is no balance. I get lots of bread and very little of everything else. Is there a way to balance it? Eating good takes time. Whenever I buy fresh produce, it goes bad before I have time to eat it. My meals are usually on the go. Crackers, carrots, and P&B sandwiches keep me full.
Sometimes, instead of studying I stare at a blank computer screen. Often, this is more stimulating than studying. Then I ask, "Can I drop out of school?" Lame. I actually make a list of pros and cons of dropping out. Even before I make the list, I know I will not drop out. However, this keeps me from studying. I wonder how much time is wasted making my little lists. Ironically, a lot of times the pros of dropping out outweigh the cons. What am I doing with my life?
I know it is time to do laundry when I run out of underwear. Laundry takes so long; an hour in the wash then another hour to dry! This doesn't include the time it takes to put away the laundry. I can't leave it unfolded. My OCD creeps up on me. But yes, I will wear the same clothes over and over again, until I run out of undies.
Well, those are a few of my lame confessions. My life is pretty boring. Most of the time, I have to make things sound much more exciting than they really are. One thing that is kind of pathetic is that I have to look for a guy to force myself to have a crush on. Crushes make life exciting because you wonder if they like you back. The problem is, I have to find a guy that I can care if he likes me back or not. No need for to me to exaggerate how lame and pathetic my life can be though. Wish me luck with life! Until next time.

After a crazy Dairy Queen trip, I went to pick up some papers from our guy friends. They took forever printing them off. It was fun playing with those kids for a few minutes.
We made it home! How else do you bring in a birthday besides a dance party? We all (roommates and I) put on fun dresses and danced until midnight. At midnight we toasted 26 years of Becky's life with sparkling cider. It was definitely a fun night.
I woke up on my birthday to a door decorated with balloons and ribbons. When I walked into the living area to thank my roommates for such a pleasant surprise, I found it was filled with balloons and ribbons as well. I loved it and could not stop smiling.
I had to go to school. I wasn't skipping. After class, I went to work on a project, but the girl that I was working on it with and I could not figure it out. Charity had invited me to go to the temple with her, so I went. It was nice. The ladies at the temple were so funny. I am glad that Charity invited me. What a great way to show thanks for life!
After the temple, Charity took me to get a cupcake from the CoCo Bean. I love their cupcakes. We just hung out and played together until I took a little birthday nap and then headed off to a group. After my group, Rob taught me how to ride his motorcycle. I love it! I want a motorcycle so badly now.
After learning how to ride a bike, Charity took me to dinner at Craigo's. She planned a surprise party for me with my favorite people there. I loved it. For ya'll who know about my farmville addiction, one of my friends got me a farmiville gift certificate, along with yummy chocolates. Gotta love it.
After dinner, it was off to my apartment for cake and ice cream. Earlier in the day, Charity and I made funfetti cupcakes colored orange and pink. We swirled the colors together and they turned out beautiful. We played and laughed at my apartment. It was a fun night.
I really did have a great day. It was crazy, fun, and busy. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday. Charity has more pictures from my actual birthday. When I get them on my computer, I will post more.

26) I enjoy making people feel awkward.
And for my one to grow on...The park may be my favorite place on the face of the Earth!
I hope you learned something new about me. Enjoy the day!

It is hard to believe that my 25th year of life will be ending in less than 24 hours. I am mildly depressed that so much of my life has passed by and I haven't accomplished the things I feel as if I should have accomplished by now. I wonder what my self 10 years ago would have said if she could see me now. Would I be proud of myself or wonder where my life has went? Life is truly a growing experience. Although I don't feel like it, I am sure I have grown a lot over the past year. I finished another year of school and even had some fun along the way. Although I am not blessed enough to have a family of my own, I am blessed with a wonderful family and many beautiful nieces and nephews. I really do love kids. I struggle with the fact that I may not have the opportunity to become a mother (Although, I still feel it could happen.) It is a blessing to have Mike and Amy's kids near and to interact with kids at elementary schools. If I never have kids, I will be able to love my students as my own. Part of me believes I choose to major in Elementary Education so I could for sure always be around children. They are delightful...except when they're not.
My 26th year probably holds some pretty exciting adventures in it as well. It will be fun to face them. This is my last year in Idaho. I will not lie, I am excited to leave but I will miss Idaho a lot (not that I have a desire to stay here). I have grown a lot here and I feel like I have spent a lot of time here discovering myself. I don't know if we ever "really" know ourselves. We are constantly changing. As soon as we think we have it all figured out, we realize how clueless we are. I know I am starting to ramble, but I felt as if I needed to write one more blog as a 25 year old. Half my twenties are over! Goodbye 25 and welcome new experiences with 26.

A great number of people have spent a great deal of human and
financial resources calculating the composition of, prior to the
decomposition of, and the worth, or worthlessness of, the human body.
When we total the monetary value of the elements in our bodies and the
value of the average person's skin, we arrive at a net worth of $4.50!
This value is, however, subject to change, due to stock market
fluctuations. Since the studies leading to this conclusion were
conducted by the U.S. and by Japan respectively, it might be wise to
consult the New York Stock Exchange and the Nikkei Index before
deciding when to sell!
The U.S. Bureau of Chemistry and Soils invested many a hard-earned tax
dollar in calculating the chemical and mineral composition of the
human body, which breaks down as follows:
65% Oxygen (yes, we are mostly hot air)
Additionally, it was discovered that our bodies contain trace
quantities of fluorine, silicon, manganese, zinc, copper, aluminum,
and arsenic. Together, all of the above amounts to less than one
Our most valuable asset is our skin, which the Japanese invested their
time and money in measuring. The method the Imperial State Institute
for Nutrition at Tokyo developed for measuring the amount of a
person's skin is to take a naked person, and to apply a strong, thin
paper to every surface of his body. After the paper dries, they
carefully remove it, cut it into small pieces, and painstakingly total
the person's measurements. Cut and dried, the average person is the
proud owner of fourteen to eighteen square feet of skin, with the
variables in this figure being height, weight, and breast size. Basing
the skin's value on the selling price of cowhide, which is
approximately $.25 per square foot, the value of an average person's
skin is about $3.50.

I only have a year left at BYU-Idaho. I will confess that I am stoked. Yet, my life hasn't turned out quite how I imagined it would. I even have a dream board full of dreams that were suppose to be coming true by this point in my life. I am almost 26 years old. Surely by this time in my life prince charming was supposed to have found me and we should be on our way to eternal bliss. Yet, here I am, single and wondering if this prince will ever come and find me. I remember a guy friend saying a while ago that he imagined finding a girl and being some sort of hero by saving her. I think some people view saving as some heroic act, yet it would be nice for a guy to come into my life and save me from myself. At times, I feel like I can be quite the narcissist and not even realize it. Yes, I'll admit, I want the whole marriage thing. I would like to find my best friend and spend everyday for eternity with him. (Or he could find me.) Still, I feel as if I have a ton of walls up and it will take a bulldozer to knock them down. Not only do I want a best friend to come home to, I want someone to cuddle whenever and to take care of and they take care of me. Growing up, I had three main qualities I'd like in a husband, and I am still sure I want just those three. The three are:
1) He makes me happy and can make me laugh.
2) He makes me want to be a better person.
3) He honors his priesthood.
Really, is that too much to ask for? (I will admit, each quality has subcategories, such as physical attraction and ambition.) I think if me and this person ever meet, it will be worth the wait, but it is super hard to be patient. One this person finds me (or I find him) I know eternities could never be enough time for me to spend with him. It will be fun growing in so many ways with this person. Until then though, I guess I'll just be "wishin and hopin and thinkin and dreamin each night of his charms."

I don' t have much to say, so I guess I will just ramble. Life has been super busy. The semester is coming to an end. I only have one more day to teach my second graders and I miss them already. I really do think my class was the best class ever! I am so excited to enter into the teaching profession. Although the thought petrifies me at times, I am sure I will do well at it.
Sandra got me addicted to The Hunger Games series. I loved them! I am anticipating the third one in August. I am already looking for spoilers online. It's only been day since I finished the second book, but the suspense is killing me. Katniss and Peeta better end up together.
I started thinking about two things today. One, I wonder if my life is passing me by without be even realizing it. I seem to rush everything and I feel like I never have enough time in the day. Lately, I've been feeling guilty because I haven't seen my family as much as I ought too. I will miss them all when the move away. Guess it'll be me against the world when they do.
My second thought is about how little I know about other people. I wonder if I am too self absorbed and consumed in my own life that I neglect to notice various things about other people. Talking to one of my roommates today helped me realize this. She told me a lot and I realized how very little I knew about her after we had lived together for a few months. Maybe this is an example of life flying by as well.
Ginny got baptized yesterday. I am super sad I wasn't able to be there. I am so proud of her decision. I know that she has the potential to do great things in life and the ability to do whatever she chooses to do.
That's my life. It's full of To Do lists and homework and it's passing by to quickly. However, I love it! I have a wonderful family and great friends. Although my life is full of stress, it is also full of laughter. Even though I might not even know what I was laughing about the next day. Maybe its exhaustion, or maybe its happiness. I don't know.

Charity has given me a nickname: Big Syd. I don't know why, but everyone tells me I look like her, even though I have been around 20 years longer than her. She is truly adorable. I love her sweet hugs and kisses. Anyways, I wanted an excuse to put a picture of us up.

"That's what we do, we fight! You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when your being a pain in the ass, which you are 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings! You have like a 2 second rebound rate and then your back to doing the next pain in the ass thing. I'm saying it's not gonna be easy, it's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at it, everyday, but I wanna do that. Cuz I want YOU! I want all of you.... you and me, together everyday....for the rest of our lives." The Notebook

I got a text from Sandra yesterday telling me that it's been a month since I've blogged. I have thought about blogging a time or two, but I have very little to blog about. My life is still full of many joys and disappointments. I don't always get my way. I hate when that happens. But, that is all part of this life experience. I stay super busy with work and school. Trying to incorporate a social life is difficult, but I really love hanging out with my FHE family this semester. I feel like I have little time to myself. I live at the library. It's no fun and I don't encourage it. I also got a my hot pink cowgirl boots this week. Thanks mom! I really do love them. I wore them to church yesterday but I was super careful not to mess them up. Everyone complimented them. On Friday, I got my haircut. It was a spur of the moment choice, but I really do love the cut. That is my life. I will try to be more faithful when blogging. We are suppose to take FHE family pictures tonight. If we do, I will definitely have to post some!
