Wow it's been forever since I last blogged!!!

Per Annie's request and as part of my New Year's resolution i've decided I should start blogging again. Granted I probably won't do it as often because i'm more a facebooker than a blogger but i'll give it a try again. Well the latest news is that i've been laid off from my job. I don't think they were planning on laying me off. The funds must have been running out. If you didn't already know I was employed at a private school. The school only had 35-40 students to begin with this year. And students kept pulling out throughout the year. I have a feeling it has to do with today's economy. So I am now job hunting again. I am so grateful for the friends i have made here. They have been a huge support in this current trial that i've been going through. And my ward has also been great!! I love the area that i'm in!! I've been able to make alot of friends and i've been able to be myself and not be as shy as i have been in the past. Which has been a tremendous blessing. My family has aslo been a great support. It was fun to see everyone over Christmas break!! I don't know what is going to happen in the next couple of weeks but it's a great feeling to know that i'm be looked after! Heavenly Father led me to the Bountiful area so i'm determined to stay here for awhile. I'm not ready to give up on this area just yet! Hopefully something will turn up within the next few weeks or so!! :)

I've moved to Bountiful!!! :)

For all those who don't know yet: I've accepted a job in bountiful/woodscross area. I'm a full time teaching assistant at Sandcastle academy. I start on Sep. 2, 2008. I'll work with grades k-2. I'm excited about this job because I was a teacher's aid the last two and a halfyears @Lincoln elementary school in Hyrum which is right by Logan. I will basically be doing the same things I did at Lincoln maybe even more than I did at Lincoln. This new job pays more and I get benefits like health and dental insurance. So, this past week I've been busy packing and moving. And boy I have alot of junk! I discovered just how much stuff I really do have. Moving is always a challenge with me but thankfully I had my mom who was able to bring up dad's truck. She was able to stay a few days and help me unpack and get settled into my new place. I also had my Aunt Cherie and cousins who were able to help me as well. I found this place online. It's a cute townhouse in Bountiful. I have one roomate who is also named Amanda. We are also both 27. I have a bedroom downstairs and my own bathroom. :) This last couple of months has been full of trials and errors but i have pulled through and finally feel like I am where i'm supposed to be. Hopefully I'll grow to love the Bountiful area as much as i have loved the Logan area. I'll hopefully get some pictures up this week of my new place.

I can see the end!!!!!! :)

Wow after years and years of tests and homework its finally all comming to an end. YEA!!! I feel like a little school girl, who wants to shout at the top of my lungs no more school, no more books no more teachers dirty looks. (hahaha) I've realized that i've had great teachers and mentors over the years who have helped me get to the path that i have taken today. I have also been blessed this last month and a half. I have been struggling for a while now to know what i need to do after i graduate. It has been a great comfort to me to know that someone up there is listening and answering me when i pray. I have been able to figure some things out for my future at least for a little while. I at least know now that i will be here in logan working somewhere. I just know that wherever else i go or do that i just have to have some trust and faith. And then everything will work out fine. Iknow its been awhile since i've blogged. But i'm more of a facebooker than a blogger. Oh Thanks annie for updating my blog. I like the new look:)

Enough with school already!!!

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~ School bites right now with 5 papers to do in the next 3 weeks. And a few projects and tests. And of course i'm avoiding it all right now. Well at least i'm almost done with this semester and then I will only have one more semester after that yea:) I am excited for thanksgiving and to spend time with the fam and the Sorenson's. I am going to Forgoten Carols with my roomates the day after Brad gets home so that will keep my mind off that subject since I won't be able to be there when he comes home. Although I think mom mentioned that they might be comming to utah that weekend so i'll get to see him then, hopefully.

Hey all (Annie)~ Today I just got back from stake conference. It was great. Elder Oaks and Pres. Eyring were there and spoke to us. So it was more like a regional conference because it was broadcasted. Pres. Eyring spoke to us about being optimistic instead of pessimistic. And that there will be trouble times ahead in the church. But we should be optimistic and prepared. He mentioned that over and over in his talk. Which struck me because it made me think of the talks we had with the family downstairs right before matty left. And also reminded me of that book dreams and visions. Anyway it was really good and here are some points he made. One was to be wise and optimistic. This he said will be more of an advantage. If we are wise we will be perfectly prepared for the saviors comming. 2. Put your optimism to work. Goals will be obtainable. He then said at the end of his talk that what does not seem possible becomes possible when the lord wants it to be possible. A wise goal will be what we are able to do with god's power. Anyway just thought i'd share that with you. I especially love the above qoute that states " what does not seem possible will be possible when the lord wants it to be possible." That has made me feel better and given me the hope i need in dealing with my current situations. amanda
