Holy goodness....it's been a while since i've blogged. My bad. HA! Well, a few things have come to pass since my last post. I went to Michael Buble's concert. It was pretty much amazing i'm not gonna lie. There was a group called Naturally 7 that was the show opener. They were so good!!! They sounded like a band was accompanying them, but it was all their amazing vocal skillz :) I would DEFinitely check them out. I think their new album comes out this June. After they left the stage, the house lights went dim and the screaming began. We all knew what this meant! So here is my mother and I screaming for this truly delicious, delectable man. The music starts and you can see Mr. Buble's shadow behind the curtain as if he was leading an orchestra. All of a sudden the curtains swing open and there he is...the cute little baby faced Michael with the smoothest vocals since the rat pack. He sounds just as amazing as he does on his album. He definitely knows how to win the crowd with his sUavE little moves in his handsome suit. One thing i like is that he is very personable with the crowd. He is constantly thanking us, his devoted fans, for getting him where he is today. Needless to say (so why am i saying it...haha) it was a great night, one both me and my mother will cherish for years to come. Mmmmm.....how i love my Buble.
I also went to another concert by MUSE!!!!! So i enjoyed Michael's concert, but there is just something about being at a rock concert (well they are more alternative rock) on the floor jumping up and down to the music being smooshed by tons of other random sweaty people. I was literally soaked from head to toe in sweat and i'm pretty sure that all of that sweat wasn't mine...haha. I was right up there in the front of the crowd like five feet away from the stage. It was pretty epic i have to say. To see the band right up close and all their awesomeness. Went with my bud Shane and it was great. I'm glad he drove because that was the night of the biggest snow storm eva and he had all wheel drive and snow tires....booya. We finally got to the exit for the canyon and guess what....it was closed...supa!! So we had to wait to get through the canyon and when we finally got into the canyon we had to wait while they cleared some trucks that were stuck. But totally flippin' worth it!!!!!
Hmmm....well finals are over and i finally got over a 3.0 which makes me so stinkin' happy. For whoever reads this you might be thinking...wow, she is dumb because she can't even get a three point average. Well all ya'll can go climb a tree. I work full time, sometimes averaging 80 and 90 hours a paycheck so there! I just am not always able to spend that much time with school, but i finally got it high enough to apply for nursing school. I'm done with everything now just gotta wait to get in now. I think it will be nice to have a break and just work. Gonna have to find some kind of hobby now...well, that is pretty much it on the updates. I know my life is so full of....nothing really. I'm quite a boring person most the time...haha....except when its been a busy day and it's like 11:00 at night i start to get giGgly. Almost like i'm drunk, but i don't even have to get drunk to act like it. I'm also gonna have to start looking for new friends because guess what!?!? All my friends are leaving me. Let's make a list shall we?!?!
Tiff----going on a mission
other Ashley---left on a mission
Z---leaving on a mission
Alora---left on a mission
Elisabeth---left on a mission
Jenna---moved far far away
Shane and Jake---leaving me in August to leave the country
Believe me....i'm sure if i wasn't singing to MichAEl JAcksOn's 'Rock With You' right now, i would be able to think of more peeps to add to my lovely list. Other than feeling sorry for myself about having no friends *tear* i am doing quite well. I have one more class that i'm doing during the summer and just gonna be working pretty much (i've got to stop using this phrase so much) full time. Bring it on...i'm excited for summer and warm weather and to whip my butt (and thighs) into shape :)

wow...i'm a terrible blogger...i hardly..blog. I don't really ever have anything profound to say or atleast anything somebody would really want to read. I'm assuming anyone is going to read this...haha. So, life is just great. I still work my booty off and pretend i care about school. Ha! I haven't been so gungho on working out an hour every day. I've just been so flippin' tired from work that i just don't do it. Which isn't helping my chances of winning the contest at work....oh well.
Spring break went by and i pretty much worked, but i did spend a lot.....LOT..of money on scrubs and clothes. Which by the way.....nobody, well at least my friends just don't understand the excitement of buying new scrubs. I spent an hour trying on scrubs because i'm super picky about them (that probably is a tad weird and anal on my part) I did buy some new clothes though (what's the point since i work all the time..hardly have time to where normal clothes, haha)
I have to say that i LOVE movies like Pride and Prejudice. In fact, i watched it yesterday and my heart just started pounding when Mr. Darcy (insert heavy sigh) at the very end came to Elizabeth and asked her to marry him....again. I guess i'm a hopeless romantic and Jane Austen's stories have always been a favorite of mine. I just love the way they talked and the way men were true gentleman (not that you can't find a few of those today). I just fall to pieces when i watch those films. Maybe someday i'll find my Mr. Darcy, haha...until then i'll just have to settle for the perfect hollywood version. ;)

life has been going just peachy keen for me. and what a great day because next week is my spring break even though i don't really go to my one class i have on campus anyway...haha. work is just blissful as always. so...at work we have started this "biggest loser" thing and who ever loses the most percentage of their body weight wins. i plan to win.....(insert evil laugh)
so everyday i've been working out an hour in the morning and it feels A-mazing!!! i love the feeling. i feel like i'm doing something good for my body and all i gotta say is it hurts...so...good ;) haha...i am actually going to workout right after this because i have chosen to sit on my duff most the morning doing absolutely nothing. it's one of those things that i hate to have to get up and do, but once i get started i love it.
random story...so i think old couples are absolutely adorable...love 'em. i was taking care of this lady and her husband sat next to her all day. he would pat her head with a cloth and caress her hand and tell her that everything was going to be alright. Looking at those two i almost cried because he was constantly there for her. That's exactly what i want...a marriage that will last and have a man who will always stand by me no matter what. Maybe even one of those old guys who will hold his wife's hand and go grocery shopping with me when we are 80 years old :) that's all....haha...

So last week was (scuse my french) super shitty. i procrastinated everything and left everything for school till the last minute. I had minimal sleep and thought i had lost my folder with all my papers for my nursing application. Everything was crashing down on me all at once. I seriously thought that i just hit a brick waLL going 90 miles and hour. I had been trying to do everything...the 15 credits...work...life in general by myself. But it doesn't work that way!!! I needed to include Christ in my life. He's just waiting there for me, but i wasn't letting him in. And let me tell ya...it's SO much easier to just let him take over. I was feeling so completely lost and really felt like giving up. Honestly i've NEVER felt this low in my life.
I feel so great today! Today is a new day and it's time for me to change. Both my annoying computer classes are over and i turned in my nursing application today....*woot woot* With that stress gone hopefully i can pay more attention to my more important classes. Sometimes it's the simple things that we tend to forget or look over. Christ has SO much loVe for us that all he wants us to do is come to him. I have needed his help for so long and it feels wonderful to feel his love! This church is really so great and TrUE!!! My heart is so full with gratitude. Heck...even my day started out great with having to wake up for a 7:30 class.
I feel super happy and like i could take on the world....don't worry i'm not gonna get ahead of myself here. Baby steps are what i need...haha. It has been a beautiful day today and I took a couple walks to the post office and such. This weather is amazing! It's 45 degrees, but it feels so warm to me ;) Well off to do some chem homework (bla) and rock on to PAramORe :D

So....as i've probably said in every post i'm SuPEr stressed. I just manage to leave everything till the last minute, including applying to nursing school. Yesterday i was running around trying to get everything done so i can turn it in next week. I really don't understand why i leave absolutely EVerYthinG till the very last second when it stresses me out SO much. But i don't think i'll be changin' any time soon....well, my life is pretty much the same. It really doesn't change...which sounds lame, but true. Valentines Day was dumb. I refrained from doing a whole post on how stupid i think it is. Complete waste of a holiday if you ask me, but who's asking. I just do work and school....work and school....sorry there isn't anything really super interesting to add to my blog. When something slightly interesting comes along then i'll blog again....

So..my last post was a little less than depressing....HA! I was so overwhelmed as was obvious. I'm a little better now. I have finished my four tests, quiz, and one assignment for this weekend. You would think after all that that i could relax, but i think i have another test next week..bLA! it's hard to keep up with everything.
Anyway, today i've been looking at pictures of when i was younger and realizing what an ugly child i was...haha...ok i wasn't that bad, but seriously! I had braces and glasses and my hair..well i didn't do anything with it and my clothing options were less than stellar. hmmm.....well i know that pretty much nobody reads this..but i guess i could say a little about myself. I love to turn my iPod speakers as loud as they will go (family doesn't really appreciate that) in the bathroom while i'm doing my hair. I grab my comb or straightner and hold it up to myself as if it was a mike. All of a sudden i'm singing with Michael BUble in front of a roaring crowd. I even sneak in a few sweet moves. One of my favorite things to eat is brEAdsTicks and hotfudge. Triscuits and cottage cheese is amazing too. Most of the time i am moody. I hate it, but it happens. I'm trying to work on that, to no avail, but i'm tryin! I'm more of the glass is half empty and anybody who knows me knows that i'm sarcastic. Pretty much that's my middle name. Sometimes i'm a little tinsy bit too sArCAstic, but *sniff* i can't help it. If i wasn't saracastic i wouldn't really say a whole lot..HA! isn't that reassuring.
WHat else to say....i love listening to Donny Osmond for anybody who even knows who that is and i also think that the Beatles are THE best band ever to have inhabited this earth. They are SO amazing!!! My mom's a fan and has all of their records. I would sit there by the phonograph and play Beatles album after Beatles album. *sigh* bliss i tell you...I've started a new years resolution to not drink pop. I pretty much drank it 24/7 so i thought it would be a good goal. Usually i don't even bother making resolutions, but i'm actually keeping this one! (so far) Oh man, i'm tellin' ya, last night i wanted a coke really really bad with my enchilada. But i resisted. Booya. hmmmmm.....guess that's all for now. I'm just gonna keep rockin' to some sweet tunes :)
