Over Load

Have you ever had SO much going on in your life that you feel like you need to sit down and write but when you do...nothing comes? It's like your mind is this filing cabinet that's so full of papers, reminders and THINGS that when you go to organize it you have to stare at it for 15 minutes before coming up with a plan of attack. My mind is that filing cabinet. So full of recent events that when I go to write...I need my plan of attack.

First, let me get some frustration off my chest...

I have certain people in my life that...oh, how do I say this? I wish weren't. Unfortunately for me, these certain people are in my life and I can't do anything about it. Usually if there's someone you don't like you can at least get rid of them (as terrible as that sounds), alas...I cannot. So to these certain people. I DO NOT like you. I actually despise you. If I could...I would love to expose and show your true colors to the world because although you might have some deceived, not me.

Ok. Now that I've got that out of my system. *Sighs* I try to not let people or things get to me but sometimes it's too much. And believe me if I could only say what these people did...but instead I'll just blow my steam and not let it get to me.

Besides all the frustrating things (retarded would actually be more accurate) people are doing, life is still grand! My goal to have the best fall has been successful so far. Matt and I have put up our Christmas lights outside on our balcony and every time we turn them on it sends a tingle down my spine. Something that must have been instilled in me since I was a little girl...Christmas means magic. I can't wait to start wrapping presents and putting them under the Christmas tree. I can't wait to start baking Christmas cookies and go Christmas caroling. I can't wait to see all the beautiful Christmas lights decorating temple square! Basically, we're just loving all the excitement this time of year brings.

Speaking of this time of year, I'm definitely getting that end of semester itch. You know that itch that you can almost scratch but you know you have just ONE MORE paper to write...just one more test. This semester is so close to being done and I couldn't be more thrilled because next semester is going to be a lot of fun! (If I ever get moved from the wait list that is.) Oh how I love the registering system UVU has...NOT. Regardless, the classes I am registered for will still be really good. I just have one more thing to do! And that is call University of Washington about their nursing program. It was ranked the #1 Nursing graduate school in the US so it's my first choice. Matt and I are going to plan a trip out there so I can meet with them and check out Seattle, see how we like the area. I am so excited! I've heard only amazing things about Seattle. Matt is a little worried about the rainy weather (he comes from California and can't get enough sun) but it's only a few years for school so he's excited for me too =)

Also my "new" hair style is almost complete!! Yeah, I know! I mentioned getting it done Oct 29th and here it is Nov 14th...the thing is my hair was so dark before it's going to take a few dyes for it to be the shade I want so there's a hint. It's really not anything crazy, just different and new! I'm really excited. AND! I feel so lucky because my favorite hair stylist who is seriously SO amazing when it comes to my hair has quit, she just had a baby, but will still be doing my hair from her home! My own personal hair stylist...can't get better than that! But my hair should be complete the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

As for up coming events! Matt's family will be coming in for Thanksgiving! I'm so excited!! It's always a lot of fun to have the Bartlett's together. It usually consists of the men talking business, telling jokes, and crazy stories about past years while the women do the, girl talk, movies, eating, etc. Haha. It's fun! And then the Monday after Thanksgiving is my birthday. I'll be turning 23...which is totally weird and insane. 23 sounds so old to me but I guess from this point on it always will. Haha. I doubt there's a chance 24 will feel much younger than 23 and that 25 will seem younger than 24...I'm officially being welcomed into adulthood...or so my age keeps trying to tell me =)

I will be forever young.
Forever free.
Forever me.

Life is exciting! Always keeps me guessing and on my toes. Until the next time I need to clean out my "filing cabinet."

  1. I know who the person is, I'm almost positive and if it's who I'm thinking of, I totally agree with you.

  2. You should definitely go to UW!!!! That is where my husband is going for grad school. We have been in Seattle since May and we love it!!!! You would probably be in our ward (A LOT of students are) and we have the BEST ward, it is so great and super friendly! Seattle is the best and the rain really isn't so bad. We have loved it so far!
