Valentine's Day

So Greg and I went on a nice hike on Valentine's Day.
Greg had some fun...

Then we saw a nasty dead swan.
You can tell that we were pretty tired by the end of the hike. Ha.
Fun times :]

I finally got a job, can you believe it? I got a call on Monday night before class from the girl who hires, and she said she wanted me to come in the next day for training. So, yesterday was my first day. I got there at about 3 PM and didn't leave until about 9:30 PM. The first four hours were actual training and filling out the W4 and stuff like that. But the rest was actually on the phones calling people. It was pretty scary at first because we just jumped right into it with hardly any practice. But I guess that's the best way to learn. Honestly, this job is sooooo incredibly boring. I could hardly sit there for 2 hours doing it. I don't know how I am going to last for 5 hours or even 9 hours a day like they want! I work Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 3-8 PM and then Saturdays from 10 AM-7 PM. It's gonna be brutal, but I guess at least it's a job right? That's what I wanted. So I can't complain too much.

BYU-Idaho and Stuff

Well, I'm still here at BYU-I. We've been in the Winter Semester for about a month now. I'm only taking two classes: one online science class and an english night class. The english class is on Monday and Wednesday nights for an hour and a half. I really like these classes, and I've been doing well in both of them. I've got A's, so it is going well. I mean, I better be getting A's considering the fact that I only have these two classes to deal with, right? The job search is dimming. A couple of times, I thought I had a chance at getting a job at different places, but nothing has been working out. It is soooo incredibly difficult to get a job up here in Rexburg. Everyone wants a job, and there just aren't enough to satisfy everyone. So I am out of luck for now. I might just resort to selling plasma for some extra bucks, if I really get desperate, which hasn't happened yet.

Pretty much, life isn't the most exciting right now. It is so freezing outside lately, usually in the single digits or negatives, and the windchill makes it even worse. So my roommates and I have been trying to stay indoors as much as possible. Which doesn't leave a lot of room for anything exciting, really. I get pretty bored a lot of the time, but I've noticed that even though I am not doing much, I am still happy. It's funny how you can be so ridiculously bored and still manage to be happy. I give credit to the Spirit, honestly. Without it, I wouldn't be nearly as happy as I am. I have managed to go down to Utah a couple times in the past month and visit Greg. Last weekend, I got to spend Friday through Sunday with him and his family. That was the best weekend of the semester by far. I had a lot of fun, I always do with them. But, it really makes me miss Greg when I have to leave. I guess that isn't a bad thing, but it is hard.

I'm still more glad than ever that I made the decision to come here to Idaho. It changed my life for the better. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive in my decisions and who has helped me along the way :]
