SO that title on my last blog is totally wrong. My counting was off. NOW it's 43 days. I think....let me check. okay it's 44. Thats kind of a bummer. But it's fine. Soon I'll be married for all eternity!
Well this week has been...interesting. While searching my holliesquotes page I came across a quote that I love and think is relevant for this week. It says: "Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful". - Samuel Johnson. I love this because I think that integrity and knowledge are two very important aspects that we will be able to bring in front of our Maker and claim we have. Both will help crown us with glory to live with God forever. Lack thereof will leave you alone, and lost. To have both together will make you happy, secure, and an overall good person. I for one, want to strive to be fair, truthful, stand up for what i believe in, and be honored because I took life, the gospel, and my own personal integrity serious.
This may be a rant, but whatever. I'm just not a fan of people with no integrity. Liars ruin lives all around them. But the worst and saddest part of all is...they singlehandedly ruin their own.

With only five weeks left of school, I'm finally getting a handle on everything. I only teach my little summer school children for one more week. Then it's finals time and then its moving time. Then it's wedding time, then its marriage for eternity time. :) im so very excited. I know I talk/blog about it constantly and its probably getting old, but this is the only time I'll be able to bask in the joy of engagement! So just bear with me...44 more days until I marry my best friend. Its getting closer and closer.
Josie is coming up this weekend! I'm so excited! It's been forever since she's been up. Hopefully the weather is nice so we can be outside and enjoy it :)
Well happy Wednesday! Love yall.

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. --Vincent Van Gogh
That quote being said.. the Praxis has been taken and I cannot even tell you if I passed. The first one was "content knowledge". Meaning the most random questions from science, social studies, math and language arts. One question was "what president of the U.S. was an environmental conservationist? THE FUH?! The second test was all about different teaching strategies and the answers were all in essay form. my hand still hurts. But its done and thats good.....and in four weeks we'll find out if i have to go through it all over again. But just like Van Gogh said, the storm will be worth the journey. One day I will be a real teacher that touches lives...despite how hard the sea rocks me on the way. It's my destiny!
Wow, this post is corny. This is my procratinating my sunday school lesson. :)
If you want to laugh instead of being bored by my blog entry today check out Jon's post today on our blog. HERE. It's hilarious.

Seriously, Rexburg is the lamest place on earth. And I say that with a lot of love in my heart because this town has been my home for five years now. I mean, I HAVE had some fun times here. I really am who I am today because of this "lame" place. I have been a 19 year old girl here (that was fun) I have been to countless dance parties here (which pretty much ended once my all time favorite dance partner, Josie, abandoned me for Utah) I have ran around the parks and hills throwing water balloons at people, I have ran from the cops here (legit), I have made my best friends here, I have fallen in love here, I have cried here, I have gained my testimony here, I have watched more movies here than anywhere in my entire life, I have read here, I have gotten more parking tickets here than anyone ever has (except the cooper twins), I have been academically, spiritual, and emotionally challenged here, I have been bored here, I have been cold here more than hot, I have laughed until I peed my pants here, I have been heartbroken here, I have been the happiest I have ever been here (when Jon visits), and now I am planning a wedding/looking for apartments/missing jon/DYING to leave here.
Wow, I have done a lot here! I really do love Rexburg. There is something about seeing that beautiful temple as I come up the road from a visit elsewhere. This place has been where I have grown into a pretty legit woman if I do say so myself.
