In defense of my current situation, I love working at in Mormon Handicraft and school is expensive.
This guy knows what I'm talking about.
Hawaii was my "new life" and I have definitely changed in many ways since I lived there. And my eight and a half months home haven't been entirely without merit. However, I have reached the point where I am ready for....
I have already made a few changes in anticipation of New Life v 2.0. These include:
-Choosing a major. Communications with an emphasis in advertising was calling my name! That, and I couldn't get into my first program of choice because almost every major at BYU is limited enrollment. I am pretty satisfied with this choice though.
I am currently attending classes at the BYU Downtown Center. I have to pass my three classes in order to apply, and if I get accepted (finger's crossed) I will be moving down to Provo in January.
-Eating healthy. While visiting my lovely sister Aubrey, we were talking about getting in shape. I had a smallish epiphany. It was this: I needed to get my eating under control before I got my exercising under control. I am proud to announce that this past week I proved to myself that I could totally follow a healthy regimen and still be satisfied. This is what I followed:

With some tweaks here and there...I don't like fish and don't really care for yogurt. But I followed it! I'm going to get my final weight loss for the week tomorrow but as of Wednesday, I had lost 3 pounds :) That's with no exercise, by the way!
-Making better use of my time. I spend ridiculous amounts of time of the computer. The results I see, are mostly unfortunate. I used to read books constantly. Now, I'm lucky if I finish two or three a year. This became unacceptable me not long ago (and not soon enough). So lately, I have been cultivating my other interests. Mostly sewing and crafting :) My biggest feat was doing and Extreme Room Makeover for my mom. I have found a wonderful passion for being creative. In order to document my doings, I started a new blog for my Sewing, crafts, ect called "Sewciety Girl". Do you see how "sew" is part of the title!?! I love it!! I haven't posted yet, but I will soon. Keep an eye on it!
I hope these choices will lead me to a happier life. And I demand happiness!! So on that note, I promise I will try, very very hard, to chronicle my life better than I have the past year. Because, you know....so many of you care ;) And to start things off, here is something that makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy:
