I just don't show it on my blog lately. Unfortunately, this means I have a ridiculous amount of stories/projects/pictures/other junk to put up eventually. I guess better late than never. Since I'm doing this at two in the morning (oh, typical Elise) I will do two updates and call it a night....morning?
- I got a puppy :D Her name is Winnifred, but we call her Winnie. Unless she's in trouble and then we give her the full name treatment. Pictures!
Don't worry. I've already done a number of photoshoots with her to put up later that are so cute it will make your eyeballs want to pop out :) I'm becoming one of those crazy dog people.
- Within one week I've decided to do two things that before, I never had any desire to do : major in English and do so while attending BYU (Hawaii or Idaho). At first, I was pretty sure I was going to major in Biology or a field therein but there was always this little nagging thought in the back of my head about the whole thing. I wanted to be a vet tech but I was discouraged about that pretty much from the beginning due to the fact that I'm allergic to most animals. Then one day, last week, I started thinking about being a book editor since I love books and think it would amazing to be part of the whole publishing process. Turns out, English is a pretty important skill to have if you want to read and edit books. Who would have thought? I never, never, wanted to major in English though, for two reasons : first, pretty much everyone I know and their dogs are majoring in English. And second, you have to write sooooooo many papers and the task seems daunting. Oh, and third...my English skills aren't exactly the most polished as it is. But I really feel good about the book editor thing and I think I could tough it out. As far as going to BYU, after researching other colleges in Utah, it just seemed to have what I was looking for in an English department (there is a particularly convincing video on the BYU Idaho website that was basically the icing on the cake for me). So come the end of summer, I will be applying for BYU Idaho and BYU Hawaii because a) either way, I get to live somewhere different and b) there is no way I could make it into BYU Provo. Hopefully, I get accepted to one. It will be a much needed adventure in my dreary life. Until then, I'm going to be getting a second job (probably waitressing, bleh) to pay for said adventure because I love Deseret Book but, hey, it doesn't exactly pay me the big bucks.
That's all for now, two people that still read my blog! Thanks for staying tuned!
