Forty Thousand Million Things

You know when life throws a thousand things at you all at once? Yeah, me too.

I know you guys don't really wanna read about what's been going on in my life, cause that's kinda boring. But, guess what I'm going to do!! I'm going to write about what's been going on in my life anyways!

So, I haven't written on this little old blog of mine since before this current semester. Now that it's coming to the close of this semester, I might as well tell you a little bit about what's been going on!

As you should probably know, I'm going to school for Cosmetology. I MAKE PEOPLE LOOK PRETTY!!!! This semester has been super awesome! This was the first semester that I was out on the floor, working on real life clients! It was the scariest! It IS the scariest! I get the worst anxiety! What if I mess up a haircut and the client gets angry at me? What if I do an awesome job on the haircut and the client is still angry with me? Then my feelings are hurt! Anyways, those are just a few of my concerns. But, I still love it. So much!

This semester, I also auditioned for institute choir. I loved it so much! We practiced every Wednesday and it was so nice to be in a choir again! I met a lot of great people in choir and had a lot of great experiences.

Anyways, remember when I said that sometimes life throws ten million things at you at once? Okay, I said one thousand. But, I actually meant like maybe ten. Well, last Friday, we went to good ole' Salt Lake City for institute choir. We got to perform in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square on Friday night! It was so exciting! We met in the morning, practiced, left, practiced on the way, arrived in Salt Lake, practiced, ate, and then performed. It was super great except for the fact that I WAS SO SICK THE ENTIRE TIME SO I WAS NO FUN! I'm typically a pretty fun person. But not when I'm sick! So...that kinda sucks. Anyways, my amazing brother and sister-in-law came to hear me sing! I was so pleased. They even took me to get food afterwards with my cousin, Jason, and friend, Chris! What wonderful people!

After that was finished, I was like, "Yay!! I don't have to stress about anything else for a while now!" Nope. We had another choir thing the Sunday right after. Not that that was stressful, but the day was stressful. I went straight from church to ward choir practice(not even my own ward), to stake choir practice, to institute choir practice, to the performance. But, it was so great! My mother, father, sister, and grandmothers came to listen!! What gems! We sounded so good. I'm sad that choir is over.

ANYWHO, once that was over, I thought, again, that I could relax for a little bit. But, then I remembered that we had a fashion show for school! A few dress shops from here had a fashion show to showcase their dresses and one of the shops asked our school to do the hair for their models! So, I did finger waves on my cute model, Makena!

I was super happy with how they turned out. All of the girls that did hair for models did such a great job! They all looked so amazing!
These are only a few of the models. Also, this picture doesn't even do the models, the hair, or the dresses justice. Everything was absolutely stunning.
Here are all of the models. But, once again, the picture just doesn't do it justice.

Once that was over, I had a few whole days to kind of do nothing. Key word, Kind of. I still had things going on. THEN I WENT HOME FOR EASTER AND GOT TO SEE MY FAMILY AGAIN!

When I got back to school, I got to jump right back into the madness. We had a hair competition last night. A bunch of surrounding schools came and we had a competition and hair show. There were a few different categories like mens' haircutting, womens' cut and color, ladies formal, fantasy, and avant garde. I entered the ladies formal and did finger waves again. They didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. This hair was a bit harder to work with, which was a bummer. But, it still turned out beautiful, I thought. Anyways, they announced the winners and then one of the judges came up to me afterwards and said that they all had me as their number one and that they were all confused when they announced a different name. So, in my brain, I won. Fair? I think so.

Now maybe I can relax again! Except, I have to move myself. If anybody feels like coming to help me move here in the next few weeks, feel free!! If not, that's cool, too.

I love you all!


  1. So newsy! I loved it and of course I love you! Congratulations on all of your accomplishments.

  2. Um. I really want you to do finger waves on my hair...and teach me how it's done....I love it!!
