Well seeing as how I have a little more time now to blog I guess I can add some pictures that I took at the beginning of the semester. So yes I am a little behind but hey speak easy ok. These are just some pictures of my apartment when I was going to school. Pay close attention to the white tiger rug that we have it was probably the best feature of our apartment.

Finals are over!!!!

I am so happy that finals are all over with this semester. I usually love school and learning, but it feels so good to be done. Now I get a couple months to work and take a break from school. My favorite class over the semester is a toss up between my ballroom class and my visual media class. I love both of them, and love learning more about them. Now I have more time for myself to work on some things that I've been wanting to over the semester.

Here is a picture of me and a girl named Alex right before our ballroom competition.

Ok so this is going to be a huge blog I've been dogging it for a couple of weeks with finals and Thanksgiving break, but I did take some pictures!

Over Thanksgiving break I got to hang out with my family and eat some good amounts of pumpkin pie. I also was invited to spend the weekend in Las Vegas with my boyfriend's family. It was so so much fun! We got to visit Matt's brother, Mitch and his wife, Sara and their little girl Arie it was so fun to get to know them better.

This is from inside the Bellagio, they had the coolest set up for Thanksgiving, we are standing in front of this tunnel with water tunnels going over us it was really cool.

This is just some of the plants and flowers it smelled so good.

Its kind of dark but here is a tree that would talk and blink his eyes.

This was a part of the ceiling inside of the Bellagio, and all of it is made out of glass it was so pretty.

This was probably my favorite thing we saw the water show that plays music and the water shoots up depending on the beat of the music. I even got lucky enough when it was doing it to a Christmas song.

I can't remember what building this was I just thought it was really cool, and we were waiting for the Tram I think thats what its called.

This is my favorite picture. One of the nights matt and I got to hang out with Stan and Debbie, and I realized they were just a goofy as us :)

Here is Matt in front of that tunnel again you can see the water really good in this one. How cute is he!

Here I am this black man really wanted to be in the picture, and we tried to get him to smile but he was really shy.

This semester...........

As so of you know I started school about two weeks ago. I joined a class called the ranger challenge that is part of an ROTC program, I was asked to join and told it was kinda like a fitness class.....Right. We were told to come to class at 6 am every morning. Well every morning turned into 5:30 am MWF and now it is just 5:30, so I have been sacrificing college social life to get to bed early so I can go torture myself the next day. Hmmm I guess with a sister in the army its kinda driven me a little bit more just getting a taste of what her days might be like since we don't get regular updates. Anyways class consists of continuous running, push-ups, sit-ups and I guess you could call them. We have to wear uniforms every day boots, army pants, jacket, hat and all. (Pictures of me in these items are still being reviewed in fear of being blackmailed with them) Here are some pictures of what my body has been going through visibly, if I could take a picture of the fatigue and soreness that is included then that big bruise would look normal. Needless to say it has actually been really cool to be a part of I've increased my 2-mile run to 15:05 last wednesday and I can run a 10K in army boots with 40lb packs on our backs this is not an easy task. It is like having 15lbs added on each foot, in addition to feeling 40lbs heavier. Well no worries it will all be over oct. 10 when we go to compete against different schools like Gonzaga, BSU, ISU, and Montana State.

Other than that school has been going really great, and starting dance this fall has been the best! I also am on a soccer team, we won our first game and we seem to have a decent team. I have recently dyed my hair really dark, I guess I just needed a change and was sick of re-highliting my hair. If you have any pointers for getting more sleep and still staying up and acting like a college student let me know.

Finals, Dates, Roommates

Ok so I have been writing papers for the past week so this is just like another paper except I am garenteed to pass...hopefully. Finals are next week and I am almost done with all my work. Although I have been super busy with school I have done some pretty cool stuff, last Saturday I went on a date and we hiked "R" mountain and ate dinner, then shot glow in the dark golf balls off the mountain, needless to say it was fun I just wish I had my dad's golf skills instead I was lucky if I even hit the ball. Here is a picture of us on the top of the mountain.

Last Sunday after the big family dinner at our house I went to my Aunt Sherri's house with my cousin Clancy, Matt Landon, and one of my roommates. My uncle Gordon asked us to go check the water out in the field, so we hopped on some forewheelers: Clancy on a motorcycle, Matt and I on a forewheeler and my roommate on a forewheeler by herself. While we were going down a dirt path we had a river on our left, we hadn't gone very far when I heard a splash followed by some screaming. We stopped and found my roommate had somehow managed to run the forewheeler and herself into the river. Luckily she was ok, but the forewheeler was taken away by the current and got stuck under a bridge. Only in Rigby does your friendly neighbor have a spare tracktor for events like this one. We had to get the tracktor and pull it out. Talk about an adventure! This weekend I got invited to spend the weekend in Logan with Matt Landon's sister and then on Saturday we will head to his all-star football game in Marsh Valley it should be pretty fun.

Punk Fetcher

Recently my roommates have been calling me "punk fetcher" when I decide to spend my friday night at home instead of hanging out with them which consists of them talking about how they are depressed about not being married or having a boyfriend. Maybe I should participate in these conversations, but I guess I just find it irrelevent because every guy I have met is still transitioning from retarded to less retarded. Any advice would be appreciated from the married siblings on this subject.
Well I figure its about time to write about my life right now, so yes I am single again but life is good. My classes are mentally really easy this semester, but physically tiring. My military fitness class is making me hard core I we recently did a 5 mile run, and I tried it again last saturday and it actually felt good. Life is so good even with some questionable roommate issues and the lack of male prospects. I can't wait for school to be out though and to see everyone again.
My ward is really cool we are hiking to the "R" this Saturday I am hoping that will make up the blessings from missing FHE for the required flag football practices that our coaches say is necessary for winning, and since I skipped the last practice and our team lost the last game its obvious I need to be a practice. Here is an old picture from Leah Stoker's reception.

One of the dance teams I teach the Emeralds. This was at a Rigby show where we just recieved judges comments on our performances. Next weekend we are in Logan again for our biggest competition of the year I am really excited its going to be fun I will get more pictures of my tappers and hip hoppers.

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Last week with my family secretly I am excited but I am sure it will be sad haha but I am over it. School starts on the 19th my classes are going to be fun this semester. I have a military fitness class and a bunch of dance classes a soccer class, and communication classes. I am hoping that my roommates are cool because I am just going cold turkey.

Wednesday, March 5, 2008


Well it was quite the weekend here in Idaho Falls with our first competition and the teams did so well! I was really impressed with their performances even if the costume lady messed up on all of my costumes and ordered men sizes, the girls looked like they were wearing their dads shirts to go to bed. We managed though and we have another competition this weekend. As for the dance battle it was good except for the part where I broke my foot doing a back flip. Dallin jumped over seven people doing a front flip it was so rad haha.

Competition Season

Well I finally made it on here to keep everyone updated. My life is pretty hectic with nutty guys and teaching. This weekend is our studio's competetion. Its our first year holding a comp. but it has turned out to be a bigger hit than we thought. I have two pieces in this one, just my two soloist, seeing as how it is just a soloist competition. I am pretty excited about it though cause I get a securtiy tag and a walkie talkie, pretty awesome I know.
Other than that my life is pretty good. Valentines day weekend I got to introduce my bf to the parents, and it went pretty good......especially for a first Stoker family encounter. In two weeks I am participating in the dance battle wednesday against some crews from slc, logan, and boise. I will be adding some pictures as soon as I get them!
