New Thoughts Inside My Head

Blog time!! School as came in and taken over my life. Well thats a lie. But if I want to fit in a social life and school there is little time left for anything else. Which I like. Except that I dont get to Blog... or creep on other peoples Blogs as much.

My mom asked me how life is going the other day. (Not on the phone like is usually done at the beginning of the year). I said it was really good. And it is. Lethbridge is treating my quite nicely.

Things are good here.. but very different than Utah life.

Is it time for another list? I think so.

So here are the new happenings/feelings/random Tiffany thoughts:

  1. After 6 months of living like a Hutterite I have a ipod! I got the brand new itouch and I love it so much. I also got a new laptop because mine crocked. It lasted me all 4 years at BYU... shout out to ol' Gateway.

  2. A man from Arkansas called me today. Bentonville actually. From the headquarters of WalMart. I had applied for a Merchindising Leadership Intern position about 6 months ago. He wanted to set up an interview for Thursday.... in the Tanner Building... at BYU. Makes things a bit tricky. But he is going to contact me and set up a internet interview soon. Exciting... but weird. In my head I am now a teacher.

  3. O yes. I am a teacher. I have 2, 3 hour classes Monday- Thursday. Its busy, and a weird kind of school but I like it. I have already made some great friends in the program.

  4. I have a play date with my school friends on Thursday. I haven't had one of those in like 10 years.

  5. I went to my first "Ball" last weekend. A 50's Themed Fall Ball actually.

  6. My In-class Practicum is Nov 15- Dec 16. I might stay in Leth... but could be moving to Vauxhall, Mountian View (my fingers are crossed), High River ect.... I find out this week where they are plopping me. Scary.

  7. I wrote an " I am" poem for school today

8. I am not a Poet

9. Ideas of Education Policy have taken over my life. Waiting for Superman came out on the East Coast last weekend. I cant wait to see it!!

My new life as a Pronghorn.

How is summer over already! It has been the fastest/best summer of my 21 years.
I just got back from a glorious 2 weeks in Hawaii with my fabulous famski. We went to Kauai and Oahu. Papa Smith swam... in the ocean... without any flotation device. I never thought I would see the day. He also had a deep desire to eat the "belly of a turtle". He became quite the ocean lover.

I got to go back to BYU-H and remember all the reasons why I loved it. For some reason I expected to see all the same friends working at the PCC. Not one of them was there except for a guy I recognized from Haliakas audition that's in charge of one of the canoes. Apparently life in Hawaii has moved on without me.

I loved being able to see all these new glorious places with my family and show them some of the ones I have been reliving in my memory for the last 2 years.

Yesterday I went up to Calgary with Kelsey to visit Cassy. It had been a really really long time since I had experienced a good girls day. The day was made up of mall trips and cheesecake. 2 of my favorites. I loved the day and I really really love them.

In 6 days I will be going back to school... at the U of L. My miracle happened. I will start student teaching in a few weeks and be a teacher in a few years. My situation was taken to the Dean and I am in the CTS track... so I will be teaching computers/business... or at least that's what the plan is for right now. I feel so lucky and watched out for.

School started at BYU on Monday. I was a sad little Canadian. I miss my fellow Cougars even more than I expected and I even miss that over sized, overly-zoobied, bell ringing of a campus. Yesterday Kelsey pumped me up for Lethbridge life... and I have since become a much happier soul. I am excited to be able to go to all the things I have been hearing about for the last 4 years and try out a different scene. So I am excited to be a Pronghorn... even if it could be taken down by your average Cougar.
