After Scott and I got married we moved into my mom's basement. It was great, we had our own space, I got to do all of the decorating and we didn't have to pay very much rent. My mom had told me that she was planning to go through and get the house ready so we could put a sign out front to see if we could sell it in three or four months. About a month after she started this project we were told that we had a buyer and a month to move out.
It couldn't have come at a worse time. I was trying to get all of my classes finished so I could graduate, and Scott was trying to get all of his stuff together for his dental school applications. We were just busy... and clock was ticking. This may or may not surprise you, but I put of getting all of my stuff packed up until the last minute possible. What I didn't realize was how much stuff someone could collect up until college. I had my room upstairs which contained all of my per-college life, and then the things I had collected since starting college that I kept in the basement.
It was weird to think that I no longer had a home. The place that I lived for half of my life wouldn't be a place I would ever visit again. I think that half of everything I owned ended up going down to the nearest DI. Yet I still had plenty of boxes to take with me, and Scott still thinks I have too much stuff.
Well, we moved into Scott's parent's basement which has been great. It has been nice having a kitchen in the basement (although we still haven't used it much), their basement has a lot more space and we have a bigger bedroom. Rent is even cheaper here too. Moving was a pain, but now that it's all said and done it was definitely worth it.
The last day of the move we were packing up our bed and frame and we found this behind our bed.
We painted it on the wall when we painted the trim in our bedroom. I totally forgot that it was there until our bed was moved out of our room. I love Scott, and he was so excited when I told him I didn't care if he painted on the wall.

Even though I am extremely excited that graduation is only a few months away, I am also a little scared. Almost my entire life one of the words that has been used to describe me is "student." In a few months that will no longer be something that defines my life. What's next? What happens when you get into the real world? In classes my teachers always say things like,"Being in college isn't like being in the real world." Am I an exception to this comment? Am I already living in the "real world"? The way I see it I will be doing the same 40 hours of work every week, but it isn't going to be followed by hours of school and homework. I know that I don't have an amazing job, and I know that I hardly make more than someone working straight out of high school, but I feel like I know what is required in life.
In high school I was always told that you won't earn very much money unless you have a college degree. Now that I am getting closer to having a degree I don't know if it will really change anything other than my resume. I chose exercise science because that is what I love, but I can't really think of a career that I could go into with just by bachelor degree. Which means, even after I graduate in August I will still be working my job at Ancestry making the same thing I would if I didn't have a degree. I will probably look to see what options are available, but by the time I graduate I will only be in Utah for another year, and then Scott and I will be off to dental school (At least that's the plan). So is it worth even looking for a new job if I only have a year left in Utah?

Do you ever just sit and think about all of the things that you need to get done? This past 2 weeks that is all I pretty much all I can think about. Since working the graveyard shift, and adjusting to only four or so hours of sleep a night I learned to fall asleep and stay asleep like a champ. The last couple weeks have been different for me. I lie in bed creating mental lists of all the things that I would like to accomplish the next day. By the time I am finished with work and school the next day I am so exhausted from only the two or three hours of sleep I got that the only thing I ever have enough energy to do is sleep. Then when I wake up from my little nap I feel overwhelmed by the list of things I wanted to do, which I wouldn’t have had time to complete even if I hadn’t wasted my time taking a nap. When does this feeling ever go away? Will it? Time and time again people tell me that life only gets busier. I hope for sanity that my life and my stresses only become different, not busier. If my life gets any busier it might actually kill me.
I am pretty busy with the 17 credits I am taking this semester. Physiology and Anatomy are some of my favorite classes that I have taken so far at BYU. This semester the classes I am taking have a lot to do with the body, and how it functions. It’s these classes that I feel like I am actually getting information that is applicable to my life. It makes such a huge difference taking classes that I enjoy, even if I do struggle to keep up with all of the homework.
Life is really good right now, tiring maybe, but I have no real complaints. I'm hoping to blog a little more regularly again. The fun day to day stuff is more interesting than the "update on the last 6 months" stuff is.
