I started this blog post over a month ago. I hate when I get behind. It has probably taken me so long to write because I hate writing posts like this. The ones that leave me feeling a little bit melancholy. Yeah, this is one of those for me.

As of January 1, I no longer lived in Wellington 4. For those of you who don't know, I had lived there for 4.5 years. I moved into it in July of 2007, right after I graduated from high school. Before you go and judge me, remember that my dad owns the apartment and it was nice being the manager. :) When I first was going to move in, I was scared out of my mind. It smelled funny, was ugly and nothing like my home in Cedar. My mom took care of her girls and let me know she would not let me live there looking the way it did. So we went to work; we re did it. We painted the walls, did some major repairs, took out some ugly shelves and it became my home. Think about when you live one place even for one semester..four months... and how many memories and inside jokes are made. Well, I lived in dubya four for 9 semesters, 37 months...and a whole lot more weeks than that. It was awesome. Seriously, the best time of my life. While there, I got to live with some of my best friends (slash family that doubles as best friends) in the whole world!

(All the W4's in order of roommates in and out)

The most recent group of us. Slash, they all still live there with our dear friend Danielle.

As for now, I feel like I am in an awkward limbo. I go from living in the hub of socialness in W4, to Pleasant Grove (with my aunt and uncle and C-Puppy, who I love all dearly) with a lot less socialness. I am subbing pretty much every day which is really good and oh, the stories that I could tell about that. I love being in the classroom every day and GETTING PAID FOR IT. Not a lot, actually it is really a minimal pay, but it sure beats sitting at a desk every day!

That brings me to my next matter of blog name. Do I need to change it?
Life of a College Girl is all I have ever known..but I am moving on to new adventures! It could eventually be... Life of a Sister Missionary eventually... But not right now. Life of a substitute? No. Life of a College Grad? No. I guess I will just keep it for now. After all, we know that I can only handle so much change all at the same time. :)

Love you all and maybe my call will be here TOMORROW! I am trying not to get my hopes up...but how can I not!

Do you substitute in Alpine then???? I would so love it if you subbed for my class next time!!! (I don't know any of the subs and so it's hard to leave my class)

Kendra Kendra Dear. i love you so much. Jus saying. being out of school is so weird. especially when everyone is starting a new year or new semester. but oh the joy that comes when finals week comes around for EVERYONE ELSE, and you and I get to party!!! ;)


let's be real here. i have been a honorary roommate at W4 since i was 14. i'm offended there is not one picture of me.
