Gotta love Mormons =)

My mom sent me these poems and I found them funny and quite accurate so I thought I'd share them.
How many Mormons does it take to change a light bulb? It depends!

If it is the Relief Society it take four.
One to fix refreshments.
One to bring the tablecloth.
One to design the Center Piece,
And one to screw in the light bulb.
If it is the Bishopric, forget it, they don't do light bulbs.
They call a Priesthood Executive Council Meeting
and delegate it to the Elders.
If it is the Elders, it takes four.
Three that don't show up, and
One to change the bulb.
If it is the High Priests it take four.
Two to push the wheel chairs.
One to handle the oxygen tank,
And one to screw in the light bulb.
If it is the Home Teachers, it only takes two,
But you have to wait until the end of the month.
If it is the Aaronic Priesthood, it only takes Four,
Two adult leaders to supervise, A Teacher to change the light bulb
and a Priest to sweep up the broken glass. NO Deacons!!
If it is the Laurel class, it takes only one.
She holds the light bulb in the socket
and the whole world revolves around her.

Mormons really do have a language all their own. If you don't believe me keep reading and you will....

My son's a CTR ... I go to PEC.
I work for CES.....I study the TG.
I read the B of M . I probe the D&C.
I search the KJV ... I ponder the JST.
Today in BYC ... we planned for EFY.
I stayed a little after ... and had a PPI.
The YM and YW ... are putting on a play.
It's one that I remember ...we did in MIA.
Before our oldest son ...went in the MTC,
He helped the BSA . complete their SME.
Soon our oldest daughter .. is heading for the Y..
Soon our oldest clothing ... is going to the DI.
Now, if you've understood ... this alphabetic mess,
The chances are quite good ... that you are LDS

Dream Team

My new job is pretty sweet. I get paid to hang out with friends basically. In between calls the people in our little room here at work joke, play MASH, run to the gas station and get drinks, do homework, and play on the internet. It's so fun. And yes, we've formed a dream team, made up of me, Kelsie, Hannah, John, and David. Work is definitely a lot more fun with friends! Go Renevati!

So it's that time of year again......time to watch the entire Arrested Development series. I can never get enough of the Bluths.

I keep trying of something else to write, but either I'm just really tired right now, or nothing cool has happened recently......I'm guessing it's a mixture of both. All I know is that while I can't believe I graduate in 3 months and am a little reminiscent, I am so sick of classes and can't wait to be done sitting through them.

Also, my flat iron broke last week so I've been doing my hair curly recently. Well tonight I frowed my hair with the curls and while it's kind of crazy and out of control, I like it.

Oh yeah, on Tuesday at work we played MASH and my results were:
  • I live in a mansion (If you insist)
  • Married to Michael Cera (Apparently I'm in a phase - I watched Juno on Monday night)
  • I'm a crime scene investigator (I've also been watching a lot of CSI-NY thanks to Emma D)
  • I drive a Ford Focus (What a classy car)
  • I live in Salt Lake City (Yeah I know, totally bummed me out too)
  • I have 4 kids (I like that)
  • I have a pet turtle (Ok)
Well there you have it.... the highlight of my week was playing a game where I marry a younger man, live in the snow, and never get a new car. Curses.

One Week Down

So the first week of the new semester is over and I must say it's been a pretty good week. I was finally able to work out all the kinks in my class schedule Monday night and so now my schedule is perfect. I am taking 15 credits but the best part is that I only have classes on Monday and Wednesday! I'm also taking an independent study class which, if you don't already know, just means I can do the class work online whenever I have time. Basically it's the easiest way to finish one of my last GE's without dealing with sitting through another boring class.

After my schedule working out on Monday I was excited to have a relaxing Tuesday. I initially thought I would just wake up, maybe go tanning, grab some kneaders breakfast or something, and then just kind of bum around the rest of the day. Well, as great as that sounded something better actually happened. When I first woke up I got a text from a friend telling me that her job was hiring. (I had put that I was looking for a job on my FB status Monday night. I'm guessing she saw that and then sent me the text.) Anyways, she sent me her manager's number and for a second I contemplated calling him later and continuing on with my earlier plans. BUT I decided to do the responsible thing and so I called the guy and set up an interview for like an hour later. I went in for the interview and after talking with the guy for like 15 minutes he ended up hiring me on the spot (which he and my friend who works there said never happens. Go me!). After he said I got the job he put me on the schedule starting on Thursday. So in a matter of 2 hours I went from jobless to on the schedule. Successful morning if I do say so myself. Oh, the place is called renevati and it's a college advising call center. It's pretty chill and it pays well and the schedule is perfect for me.

So to sum up, my class schedule is perfect and now I have a job with an awesome schedule too. Not a bad first week.

Well hello there 2010

So I must admit I'm pretty excited about the new year. 2009 was fun and a bunch of cool stuff happened, but I'm definitely looking forward to 2010. This year I'll be turning 23, which I'm feel very ready for surprisingly, I'll graduate college - for good! No more school ever! -, this summer I'll be taking the CPA exam, I'll move to LA for good (well at least for more than a few months), and this will be the year I start my career. It's a lot to look forward to and I'm excited to see how the year plays out!

Before I forget 2009 I wanted to do a recap of this past year and the stuff that made it what it was
  • I started a scripture reading schedule and this year I read the Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, and the New Testament (2010 I'll be reading the Book of Mormon and the Old Testament.... it should be good!)
  • Had the summer of my life in LA. Met some great people and lifelong friends for sure. I loved having my intern friends coming out to Utah to visit - it was such a blast. And I found the coolest girls to live with. I <3 roommate chats. And I believe in the cards!
  • This year brought another new nephew, Charles Orion Mugleston - keeping the tradition going. He looks like such a grandpa with his oxygen tank that he has to have on right now, but still so adorable. Love him.
  • This last semester I got the highest semester GPA since before I started the accounting program (over two years ago) so that's cool I think.
  • My vans (the shoes) collection has grown. That's only a positive thing!
  • And a bunch of other stuff happened that was great, awful, and everything in between.
Peace out 2009!
