BYU-Hawaii? I think YES!

Guess what???????
I'm going to transfer to BYU-Hawaii, that's what!!!!! That is, if I get in. But I really think I can. My grades are good enough. (By the way, I checked my grades today and the lowest was a B! Woot woot!) I started the transfer process today. Now all I need is another Ecclesiastical Endorsement! I'm really excited, and I hope I get in!!!! I feel so happy!! :) See? There is happiness right there, displayed for all to see! Hahaha. I know, I'm a dork.

Poly boys, humidity, squawking peacocks...all of these are awesome!

Yessirree, I'm in Hawaii! Where else?
I'm actually enjoying myself quite a bit! I love love love love LOVE this place! I want to move here! Seriously. Which brings me to another life plan I have made...this one seems better! Hahaha...maybe that's because it happens to be what I'm thinking of at the moment. Hehehe. Here goes:
Me transfer to BYU-Hawaii. Then I marry a polynesian (attractive polynesian), and then I stay here. And teach school. And a few years down the road I have cute little poly kids. I like that idea! A LOT! I LOOOOOOOOOVE Hawaii! It's fabulous and awesome! I seriously do want to move here. There's hardly anything about it that I DON'T like (or love, for that matter). Yes, that means I love the humidity, the ocean everywhere, the gecko that lives in this house that chirps, the wild chickens, the sun, the rain, the fact that the time here is 3 hours behind Seattle and 4 behind Idaho, the people, the culture, the palm trees, the fruit. You name it, I probably like it, love it, or at least don't mind it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DID YOU KNOW: that if you crash a car here and you DON'T have insurance that you must stay here? Now I don't know all the stipulations, but that sounds like a good idea, no? That way, I can stay here. Then I won't have to leave. AHHHH! It's amazing! I know why everyone loves coming here! I DON'T know why not everyone lives here! (Plus, most Polynesians are attractive people!)
Today we went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. FUN FUN FUN, I tell you!!!! Snorkeling rocks!!! A LOT! A WHOLE LOT! It isn't very difficult, either! If you ever get the chance, I suggest that you try it! Maybe one day I'll learn to SCUBA. Also, I would like to learn how to surf (but that won't happen on this trip...perhaps when I move here). Snorkeling is fun, though. Except if you inhale salt water. That ISN'T fun...and it burns your throat. Now, I'm a little bit burned. From the sun. But it could be a lot worse. And some of it is turning brown, which means I will be more tan. That is probably a good thing.
This is a fun and great life! I wish every person got the opportunity to visit Hawaii (or a place like unto it)!!! It's just such a fabulous experience and it makes me so so so so happy! I just want to dance! And I don't want to leave for a very long time!

P.P.S."Suckin too hard on a lollipop, oh love's gonna get you down"

I have no idea what that's supposed to do with anything, but it's a good line. (From a Mika song!) I was briefly going through previous blog posts of mine and decided maybe a little update would be good. I still like Mika, I don't still have a life plan (because apparently Heavenly Father doesn't want me going on a mission- he told me so), but I do want to do my student teaching in Arizona and get my Master's in either Hawaii or at ASU. I'd really like Hawaii, but if I get a job in Arizona, then I can apply for residency and I would have in-state tuition. Thus it might be more smart for me to stick where I have a job and can go to school cheaper. But I have a while to think about it, so I'm not really worried. Aaaaaaaand.....yeah. That's about it. Except for one more redundant phrase: stupid idiot. (That one doesn't bother me as's funnier. Don't ask why...I have a sick sense of humor, I guess.)

Post Script

P.S. I sold my books back yesterday. Now I have money again!

Halleluja! Halleluja!

I feel excited. I've been waiting for this day to come allllllllll week long. And partly all semester long. And partly only the latter half of the semester. You see, TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF CLASSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it gets better than that. Today it means tomorrow is tomorrow. And by one of those tomorrows (I'm not sure which one), I mean Friday. And by Friday, I mean that I get to go to Hawaii for a week!! Now that's what I call ending with a bang!
So, my finals all went well. I did okay with grades, although I didn't get all A's. However, I don't really care about that, and I do get some. That's what matters. Oooh. I just popped my neck. That felt good. Sorry. School was good and not good this semester. Very long. Very fun. Very tiring. Very annoying. Probably most adjectives could describe this semester in one way or another.
Our White Glove was Tuesday night, so I don't have to worry about that. :) Matthew and I leave for Utah tonight at 7 p.m. and leave Utah at 7 a.m. Funny. I just noticed that it's 7 for both. How odd.... We have a layover in LA and then arrive in Honolulu at 11:26 or something like that, where we will meet our family who already got there yesterday. Long flight, for which I'm prepared, by the way (I happen to have some sticks of Maui Melon Mint gum, which I feel is fitting). 2 hours to California and almost 6 to Hawaii (time difference is a wee bit different in Hawaii...) But I'm excited. It'll be fun. :D
I have no more packing to do and I'm rather bored. Maybe I should read. Or watch a movie. OR both. Oh goody...just what I get to do tomorrow all day long. Except for it won't be all day long, although it should be. I gain 4 hours, so I will have a 28 hour day tomorrow. No lie- it's the truth. Trust me, I don't think you want four extra hours in your day. Even if you ask for it.
