5 Things

Okay, tagged by my sister Carissa:
5 things I was doing 10 years ago:
1. in junior high - ninth grade, I think. We had a very strict dress code that year and I was refusing to comply.
2. Reading Ender's Game as a school assignment.
3. Reading Gone With the Wind and loving it! (Fell in love with Rhett Kinnicut Butler)
4. Staying up late at night watching old episodes of Zorro and Wonder Woman and eating massive amounts of otter pops. (seriously, my record is 53 in one sitting - I ran out or I'd have kept going).
5. Still playing barbies with my eleven year old sister, who would make me play them to this day if I hadn't gotten "old and boring."

5 things on my to do list today
1. go to the gym
2. cook dinner
3. read my scriptures and write in my journal
4. finish updating grades for my junior high students
5. watch Heroes!

5 snacks I love:
1. Ice cream - God's gift to women to make up for child birth :)
2. popcorn with lots of butter
3. hot cheetos
4. Old fashioned donutes
5. grape leaves

5 things I would do if I were a millionaire:
1. buy a house
2. make sure that all of my college loans and my sister's college loans are paid off.
3. Go on a very extended vacation with Jared - probably back to Kauai.
4. Pay my grandmother's medical bills.
5. Save most of it for our future

5 places I've lived:
1. West Valley, UT - from when I was born until I was in high school
2. West Jordan, UT - from high school to college
3.Heritage Halls - Freshman Year
4. Glenwood 154 - Sophomore and Junior Year
5. Our little apartment southeast of campus for 6 months until we moved by the library where we've been for the last year and a half.

5 jobs I've had:
1. First I started working for my mom filing papers at her office and then in the summers I would work there as a receptionist. During school I'd do weekends as janitor there.
2. Early morning janitorial at the UPC during my freshman year of college.
3. Records office at BYU.
4. High school special education teacher at Riverton High. I loved the kids and the friends I made at work, but it was an hour away from home and I just couldn't handle the commute. Also, the insurance didn't cover our current health needs.
5. Junior high school special education teacher at Orem Jr High. 15 minutes from and a great environment to work in. I love it!

Four Squared - Tagged by Karissa

My friend Karissa tagged everyone who read her blog to post the fourth picture in the fourth album in their pictures folder. Since I have photos both at work and home, I'll put both up:
This one is from Megan's baby shower. She looks freaked out because a few of her friends were discussing the details of home births without drugs. I almost kicked them out of my house. They really scared Megan and pissed me off, too.
This one is from Christmas 2006 in Idaho. Aunt Cyndi made all of us matching Santa slippers. Although it's almost impossible to tell, Mom, Dad, Jared, Tyler, Megan, John, Chris, Matt and me are all in this picture. Thanks Cyndi, they're awesome!

I tag Jenae Hasler, Aunt Cyndi, Carisa Brown, Aunt Cathy, Carrie Miller, Malarie Leao, Meg Larsen, Martha Harmon, Martha Birk, and Michelle Palmer.

Embarrassing moments

My friend Carrie tagged me to tell three embarrassing moments. I'm not sure what to write because I usually don't put myself out there enough to get embarrassed. Mostly I'm only out there when I'm on drugs.
For example,
I had to get a root canal and I was on loritab. I took the day off work and went to the dentist, then Jared drove me down to BYU so that I could apply for graduation. As we were wandering from our apartment to the McKay building so that I could meet with my graduation advisor, I started singing Christmas songs. But not just any songs - Scrooge from the Muppet Christmas Carol - complete with voices. I was singing and walking drunkenly across the middle of campus. I was too out of it to be embarrassed, but Jared, who was holding my hand so I wouldn't fall over, was pretty embarrassed.

Mostly Jared and I don't put ourselves out there in the first place. This means that we don't have embarrassing stories, but we don't have a lot of really good ones either. Also, once I open up to someone, I don't really care what they think of me because I know that they love me. This means that I can't get embarrased in front of them. Sorry to disappoint, folks.
