Whiling away the hours

(for your viewing pleasure)
I wish I had hours to while away, but I'll take a few moments at work to express some thoughts on my mind.

So here I am again at yet another mid-college life crisis. I don't know if Art History is the field for me. I was thinking quite seriously about Public Relations. I don't know though. If any of you have any suggestions about how to reach a final decision, I'd love them.

Meanwhile, I competed last weekend in DanceSport. It's a ballroom dance competition nationally as well as within BYU. I danced the quickstep, cha-cha, and waltz. I made it to quarter finals for quickstep and the cut just before quarters for both cha-cha and waltz. Mom was able to come and watch me. It was so fun to have her here with me for a weekend. I'm really pleased with how my partners and I did. I had three different partners, one for each dance. It was fun. I would hand my shoes to one partner then run to the other one waiting in the line with my other shoes. (For those not aware: when dancing latin dances standard ballroom shoes don't work because you need more flexibility in your toes. So one partner would have my standard shoes, the other would have my shoes that I used for cha-cha). I danced quickstep on Friday and the other two on Saturday. It was super fun.

I did realize that I prefer dancing for fun and not for a competition. Although competing in something was fun and I liked knowing that I still enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with a competition.

Other than that, life is same, old same old: sleep, school, work, school, school, school, eat(hopefullly), school, sleep(not long enough), repeat.

I'm still the first counselor of my relief society. I still try to do too much. I still don't have dates, other than the one with Dad tonight (Wee hee I'm so lucky!!!! really! I am!)!!!! I still am smiling and I'm still enjoying my life in college. It might be hard and ruthless and a huge struggle to get good grades, but it's all worth it in the end.

Oh, and I've decided to move...yet again. I can't seem to stay in one apartment for more than just two semesters, oh well such is the life here in Provo.

So that's all for now. (See I am getting better at posting stuff ;) )

Correction

So, the dance link didn't work. Sorry. Go to chhpvideo.byu.edu then click on Dance and then on Ballroom and then mine is under aubreycarr or something like that. It's under the first link of aubrey. I'm still the 6th couple. I just watched it and I look really sloppy. Don't worry, I'm working on it.
