She's a graduate!

My sister graduated! Wahoo! And I got to come home and be here for it.

Then I got to see her perform in her last Vocal Spectrum concert. It was quite fabulous. I gotta say, my sister is extremely talented. And in about an hour and a half we'll get to go enjoy her Senior Recital. It's gonna be good.
I'm so glad I was able to come home and even stay longer than originally planned. It's nice to be home for a while.

Fun-day Friday

I have such a great job! I really enjoy it. I have the daily routine down pretty well and I'm learning some new things. Plus, there are definite benefits to working in the Bookstore. Not only is there the employee discount, or even the nice atmosphere, but there are fun-day Fridays. Every once in a while, apparently, we get a special treat on Friday. How fun is that? Today it was ice cream sandwiches. You get to go down to the break room and mingle a bit with other employees. It was fun. Fun-day Friday!

In other news, I have a cold. It's not the best thing ever. But it's not horrible. It could be worse, that's for sure. I've tried to get more rest...went to bed about 9 last night. Probably close to that tonight. Plus, it's SATURDAY and I get to sleep in. Fabulous!!!

A confession

Good grief...don't accidentally hit enter after you type the title, it publishes your blog...and I just did it twice. Rather annoying, Google should change that...seriously, if it asks me in Gmail if I want to send without text in the body, surely it's the same idea here. Anyway. That's not what this post is about.

This post is a confession. A confession of love and adoration. The kind that makes you giddy and giggly. That is what I have experienced this evening. You see, I decided to watch a movie. Early. At like 5. Which meant I could watch another one after. The first one was Hairspray. It was good. I was still in a mood for musicals (and mostly Zac Efron), so the inspiration for my blog's name was the answer: High School Musical 2...yeah, this is the weakest of the trilogy but even in all its cheesiness, I adore it. I giggled quite a bit. And I haven't seen it in a long time.

While I watched it, I thought about the possibility of sometime having a HSM movie marathon. Actually, I've toyed with the idea for a while, but I haven't committed to it. I think it'd be so much more fun with other people...but I can't think of anybody who would be as nerdily excited as me. So then, at the end of the movie, I switched back to the television. It was on Disney Channel. You wouldn't believe what commercial came on. (Insert dramatic music or drum roll or something awesome here.) Next Saturday there is a sing-along High School Musical marathon! This made me giggle a lot more. Actually, I sat there laughing for a good long while. During the whole commercial basically. And it was pretty long.

So the question is, will I be participating in this sing-along marathon? Sadly, probably not. I have a wedding reception I plan on I could watch the three movies without my marathon probably won't be next week. But it is going to happen. Because, I confess...I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!!!

P.S. just came on again...yes, I'm watching Disney Channel. That's my other confession: I sure love Disney Channel...the simple pleasures of life...

Friday the Thirteenth

There's nothing particularly frightening about May 13th, but when it is Friday the's still not scary. Now that we've covered that, I have some catching up to do. Here we go!

Sunday, May 1
I had a group of mission friends over. It was fun just visiting and chatting. And showing off my mission scrapbook. Haha!

Tuesday, May 3
Elder Clarence Jones from Houma, Louisiana, went into the MTC on May 4, so we had a farewell party for him the night before. We're so proud of him and excited for him to have a wonderful mission in Georgia! He's going to be great!

Thursday, May 5
Yet another gathering of mission friends, this time for the wedding reception of two of them! So exciting! I looked awful that night, so ignore me and look at everybody else!

Saturday, May 7
I cannot even express how much I loved seeing Seussical the Musical!!!! It was absolutely fabulous!!! My family came down and we had a great night of laughter and smiles. What a great show and it was so well done at the Hale Center Theater in Orem! I totally recommend it! My coworker even took that recommendation and she and her fiance are going to see it at BYU tonight. It's FABULOUS!!! I wish I had the music!

Wednesday, May 11
Meet one of my favorite foods: a poboy- roast beef and gravy on french bread, then "dressed" with lettuce, mayo, and tomato! Oh heaven. I haven't had one since...a long time ago in I made one. It wasn't as good as the Corner Cafe, but it was pretty dang good. I invited Bunkie over and we had a fun night of poboys and watching one of our favorite movies, Bandslam. Fabulous!

Thursday, May 12
Another mission pal came up and we went out for Japanese food. I even tried spicy tuna sushi. It was pretty good.

So that's been the biggest highlights of this month. That doesn't include my new ward, but I'll write about that another time. Also, work is going really well. I'm getting better and faster and we're getting caught up on indexing (we were pretty behind, but now there are just a few hundred documents left to index, we'll definitely finish before our supervisor gets back from doing physical inventory in Hawaii. (Yeah she has a hard life.)
Well that's about it! My life's been fabulous, I hope yours is too!

May already?

I got a job! BYU Bookstore Records Management (in case you can't which case, this sentence won't help much either). Anyway, I had orientation and a little training today. Tomorrow's when it really begins though. I'll start learning my morning routine. Hopefully I can catch on quick and notice the important details. Should be an adventure. This is a busy week! Starting work and a bunch of fun planned this stay tuned!
