My life as of now.

Alot of stuff has happened, well not a whole lot but I haven't blogged in like 2 weeks. Kind of sad, but I have been busy! So important things you should know....
I'm a "Baby Phi" as they like to call us. I think this is pretty much all of us. We are having alot of fun together. All the the actives are really nice and just want to get to know all of us. Tuesday im going to lunch with a cute active named Gina. We haven't ever really talked but she wanted to go out to lunch so we are! Im way excited to actually start being a part of everything.
Sorry I don't have any pictures at the moment (blame Natalie!) But I had so much fun! There were 12 girls and they gave out 2 titles. I didn't get one...but its ok. I did have the biggest cheering crowd which I think means so much more! I made some friends backstage with the other girls as well...seeing each other all but naked and a little duct tape tends to bring people closer.
He is my first one, and im don't make fun of me!
His name is Greg. I knew him for a year before he left on his mission and he got home about a month ago. We were always pretty good friends (after we got over the hating each other part) and we just stayed friends all throughout his mission. Greg may just be the funniest person I have ever met. He lives in Lindon, and I live in Cedar but we are trying it out.
School is just fun in general. My classes are mostly all fun and my professors are awesome. My biggest class has like 150 students so its fun to participate in class and not just pretend like I am. I've on ly taken 2 tests so far and I didn't do the best but I did pretty good. I've written a couple papers for English but thats one of my favorite classes so it all works out.
My roommate is still awesome. I love her! We have funny moments together sitting in are small room watching friends and talking to our boys!
I love college. Im miss Lehi but moving out was one of the best things I've done. Its a huge accomplishment I think to be out on my own, keeping track of my money, going to church, going to work, getting up for class and still having time to get in a couple hours of sleep.

The newest member of Alpha Phi!

Remember how I've been going to rush week activities for Alpha Phi? Well... Thursday was an invite only activity in which only 39 out of 80ish girls were invited - ME INCLUDED!

Pref night was great! After some of us new girls and the active Alpha Phi's went to Applebee's for dinner. Then me, my sister (who is an alumni advisor for Alpha Phi), and the president of Alpha Phi, the gorgeous Morgan, decided to go to Chili's.

It was funny because technically Alpha Phi has to give me a bid because I am a legacy, so Natalie and Morgan were trying to keep it from me but were having a hard time.

This morning I had to go see if I had a bid or not... and i did!!! Yes, that's right, I'm the newest (well one of 35 newest) alpha phis!

Tonight was Bid Day. All the girls who got bids and all the active sisters had a party at the Alpha Phi House. We had dinner, played get to know you games, and did some dancing/singing. I'm so excited to be an Alpha Phi!

I have found the man of my dreams!

So, i had to post these pictures....

This one is from sophomore year. Me, Rachael, Sophie and Nicole went to colorado for a weekend to visit some friends of Rachael and Nicoles and on our way home I saw this Ronald in the gas station. I just had to take a picture with him! I mean...he is so attractive!

Well, me and Ronald only had a short time together, I was on the road, he was a working man...and I never saw him again.


Today! I went into walmart and saw him sitting there, like he was almost waiting for me to come, just to welcome me! I don't think I have ever been so happy! I thought I would feel so alone in cedar but today was a break through! Just goes to show, right when you think you are all alone in this world something happens that can change your life forever!

Skit Night!

Today for Rush it was skit night! We walked into the room and they linked our arms as they sang to us...kind of weird, but it was funny. I love how they are all "SISTERS!" Its funny...and I do love it. So we sat and got to know one of the sisters and talked to them. Mine was named....Veronica...or something ( I feel bad!) But she was really nice! Anyway, after talking for a little bit some of the Alpha Phi girls ran to put on a skit for us. It was so funny, they did like an award show and handed out awards to people like Tyra Banks(my favorite!), Ashley Olsen, and of course Alpha Phi! It was so funny. I loved it, it was so funny!

Polygamist at Wingers.

Today at work was one of the scariest days at wingers I've ever had. At first I was having a good day, I had a big table in the back and made some good money and some guys came in and left me a good tip as well. So far I haven't really liked wingers but I was thinking today would be differernt. Well, three people came in at about one oclock. One guy and his two wifes. I used to have polygamist that lived by me in Lehi but I don't think that I ever really talked to them because I was to little and didnt understand. Well, I was going to seat them in Coles section because it was his turn, but he said "would you mind taking them? I have a friend coming in"...which I am beginning to think was a big fat lie! So I took them, and of course I was all happy and nice to them, I didn't think they would be any different then other people so I treated them the same as any other table. Well, when I was asking them for drinks I looked right at one of the girls (they looked about my age!) and asked her if she wanted a raspberry lemonade and she said "yes, that will be fine" As I walked away the guy sittng across from her glared and he looked so mad. I asked a friend at work why and she said they aren't usually supposed to talk without his permission. I was so stunned. I couldn't believe that women in that sort of situation were treated so poorly. After that I was so scared to go down there because I didn't want to do somethng wrong and have him get made at me, or his wives he was with. After a while they left and I was still really bugged by what had happened.
The guy on the right is named Rulon Jeffs, the father of Waren Jeffs, he once ruled over around 10,000 before he died.
When I got home I looked up on the internet some interesting facts on polygamy...
*The women usually are married by the age of 14 and only get up to an 8th grade education
*Many polygamist men believe they must have 3 wifes in order to be let into heaven.
*The wives don't usually have anytime for themselves or alone with their husbands.
*It is very hard to get out of a polygamist community, the women are watched all the time and if they try to leave and get caught they will separate them from their families.
I think polygamy is so sad and I hope that one day the wifes that want to get out of the abusive and overlooked wifes can and that they can live a normal life.

Today was the first day of rush! As I went to classes I got about twenty flyers reminding me about all the activies for this week. It was really exciting. I even saw around fifty girls wearing Alpha Phi shirts. Tonight they had a BBQ and I got my friend Sam and my other friend Shannon to come with me. We met alot of girls and it was fun. There where 3 other girls from Lehi at the BBQ and they all said they wanted to join Alpha Phi which made me pretty excited. Heather Larsen one of the girls came and told us all about it, it was fun. The other group is delta something zeta...I dont actually remember but it was always weird when they would come up and talk to me, just because I kind of have to join Alpha Phi so I was just like...say what you want and go away. Ha, not really. They where pretty nice but im really excited for the rest of the week and to hang out with the Alpha Phi's!

Cam is weird.

For some reason he wanted me to blog about this picture. We were watching a movie at his and Harrys apartment and when they were taking me home I noticed that he still had that on his rear view mirror so when I brought it up he told me to scrapbook it...and to blog about it. What a crazy fool!

Weekend in Lehi!

My weekend in Lehi was one
of the best i think i have ever spent in Lehi.
For many reasons. First my dog! I missed

Rascal so much I can't even tell you. Me and him are very much alike! We are both crazy! Plus, look at him. He is so darn cute!

Another great part of my weekend was my friend came home from his mission! Greg! We were really good friends when he left and we wrote each other almost the whole time he was gone! He is so funny so it was so good to see him! Me, Him, Rachael, her boyfriend Austin, Nicole and Eric all went to Olive Garden and ate dinner. He told us all about his mexico adventures (ha!) After we played guitar hero at Rachaels house, which Greg can already play on medium and I don't think he has ever played it, which makes me very angry. I've worked for two long years to get to the place I am today on Guitar Hero! :) I also hung out with him on monday. He hadn't been to all the new places in American Fork so we went over there. We went looking for phones for him at Verizon and AT&T and all the people thought we were married looking for a family plan or something. We were laughing pretty hard! We also went to Walmart and we donated two dollars to the primary childrens hospital to make a tile made from legos they are putting

in the ground or something. I hope you can tell what we made...

If not, its Harry Potter, but we only did like the top of his head. And its kind of square. If was fun though. After we went to the popsickle park and hung out. If was freezing cold out there by the way, but we had fun. Greg is funny, and he is practicly the same person, but if you mention that to him he is the first person to tell you that he has changed. But, for the most part i think he is the same Greg.

Of course seeing Jacey, Tara, and Jane was so much fun! We went to applebees and had dinner and then to Sub Zero!
After we went to Jacey and Taras apartment and hung out and watched some tv. Funniest thing that happened this weekend...They have this nasty dog that lives where they stay. (Their apartment is under a house) And It loves to get out of the backyard, so as me and Jane are leaving it runs out and I go to catch it and Its sick, long, nasty hair gets stuck in my hand. Jane catches it and it pulls her around the front yard. We tried to get it back into the yard but that didn't work. Every time Jane tried to pull it, it would almost bite her hand off! Finally we got it in the owners house, but it took alot of effort, and I am forever stained with that experience.

Sunday night I was invited over to Rachaels house to play games. So we played clue, which stupid austin cheated at! (i totally caught him too! he thought he was so sneaky) After we played apples to apples, and I dont know if everyone does this, but at Rachaels house when you win one of the green cards its supposed to describe you.....
So i got,

What a weird girl I am.
I think only half of those are true!

Finally, I hung out with my sister on Saturday. We went and saw the movie House Bunny, which was funny at times, but also incredibly lame. "Happy Maddison Productions" made it, and with those movies they usually have really funny parts, really gross parts, and stupid endings. This movie kind of feel into that catagory. But it was fun!

Anyway, my weekend was great! Im coming home again on September 20th for a pageant and im sure that will be just as, if not more....eventful! :)
