ONE WEEK!

7 days from now, I will be boarding a plane to New York City and the world!! How exciting is that?? And honestly, it cannot come soon enough. I am so ready to leave Provo. This last week was one of the most stressful in a long, long time. I had my American Heritage final and 2500 word essay due, as well as two presentations and a big paper for each PR class. Not to mention work, making sure I have all my stuff to go abroad, Bradley stuff, etc. I'm just glad it's finally over.

But I still have a lot to do! I still have to finish cleaning and packing, finish my marketing test, get my hair done, finish shopping, and go to class this week! Does anyone know where I could rent a small netbook? I'd like to take a computer on my trip, but my poor laptop just won't survive the journey. Let me know.

I did do some fun things this past week however! Last Saturday, Shirley and I took an impromptu trip to Lagoon. It was so much fun! I LOVE amusement park rides (especially roller coasters!) and it was just great to take a break from studying and all my worries :) And I wore sparkly sunscreen, so I looked like one of Stephanie Meyer's vampires haha

Thank goodness Shirl loves roller coasters too! Happy birthday, girl!

Yeah, the park had a pioneer village. Oh, Utah.

A couple nights ago, Hollie invited me to go to a Passover dinner at her D&C professor's house. Her house was up the canyon in a beautiful area, and the dinner was really enlightening. There is SO much symbolism about Christ in the feast, and it just blows my mind that the Jews didn't recognize what was right in front of them. Also, I'm glad I didn't have to live in those times. Lentils and unleavened bread just don't really cut it for me :) It was a really good experience though, and if you haven't been to a Passover feast before I really recommend it!



Also, shout-out to Brittany finally being home from her study abroad in Mexico! The girl is wayyy too tan to be Caucasian, let me tell you. Just look:

No, I'm not super white, Brit is just really brown ;)
 
Finally, my necklace from Caitlin arrived today! Caitlin and I were BFFs before I moved to Ohio, and we reconnected on Facebook a while ago (thanks, Mark Zuckerberg!). Anyway, we still retained our love of royalty and both wish to marry Prince Harry. NBD. So this necklace is just a good reminder of what we're aiming for in men :)

Says, "Keep calm and marry a royal"

That's all for now. I'll try to blog more this upcoming week! Here's a reminder about my study abroad blog. Go follow it.
