My new job.

I love it. In fact, I love it so much that I kind of forgot that I have a blog. I am suddenly soooo busy. But good busy. Really good busy.

And now, I have something to say that is going to BLOW YOUR MIND.


I go to bed at 10:30pm, and I LIKE IT!

I am at work or on a bus for 12 hours of my day, and I find so much fulfillment out of it, that I don't care. I come home and am literally awake for 4 hours before bed. But I feel healthy and good.

And that is my life.

And it's so great. 

Reasons why I love my job:

1. It doesn't involve students or teaching.
2. I get to hang out with senior and service missionaries all day. One of the young man service missionaries plays Lord of the Rings from his computer in the morning. It is my heaven.
3. There is a senior sister with fiery red hair that actually sticks out like flames. She never stops talking, and it wastes half my lunch time, but I love her.
4. I sit at my desk/cubicle for probably an average of 45 minutes per day. The rest of the time I am chilling (literally. at 55 degrees fahrenheit) in the vaults. There are 12 of them in the library. And it rocks.
5. I have amazing co-workers.
6. I have a name tag.
7. I get to say that I "work for the church."
8. I hang out on temple square before, during, and after work.
9. There are sometimes cute boys on the bus.
10. I love to organize things-- you know, put them in alphabetical or numerical order. I like to count things. I like to keep things straight and perfect. And that's what I do all day. Plus, they put me in charge of inventory of all archival supplies.
11. There are opportunities for growth. I can certify in certain areas and build my resume.

And the number 1 reason:

I am so sick of working for free its insane (internships and student teaching). And the best part about that is that I DON'T HAVE TO ANYMORE. Life is good. 

So last weekend I got my first pay check. 

First stop: TARGET.

I spent $100 on cosmetics, accessories, and dress pants in literally 30 minutes. It was the happiest 30 minutes of.... I don't know. the month. 

Second stop: I paid back all the people I borrowed money from (aka my family members. Thank you btw) to survive the last month or so.

Third stop: PASS OF ALL PASSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you read that right. I am the proud owner of a pass of all passes to 7 peaks, Trafalga, and Orem Owlz and Utah Flash games. 

I can hear the fun train coming around the bend.

(yeah, so last Saturday, I went to the Mt. Timp Temple, 7 Peaks, Pizza Pie Cafe, and "Thor" at the dollar theater. It was a good day)

Chris Brown

I feel like he's back to stay.

exhibit A: Justin Bieber collaboration.
exhibit B: the Joe Jonas song.
exhibit C: Michael Tribute. That rocks.

The backtrack, PS, is from 1983's "Human Nature." And part of the melody is even the same.
