First Day Of Work

AHHH! I got a job!! eek! Like this is so awesome!! I am so grateful for Heavenly Father. He truly does  watch out for me and he knows me and takes care of me if I have faith and obey. I  went to 15 places today inquiring about a job and the very last place I went, they invited me to come back at 5 that night to try me out as a waitress! I was so nervous at first, but then it turned into excitement! I had so much fun! Sean was teaching me. One of the very first things was beer and wine, and I was just okay I guess! It was weird but he was really nice even though I was really bad and slow and kept messing up. I was learning how to do cash register, serving soup, wiping tables, washing glasses, I poured beer and wine, delivered food to  tables, cleaned tables, wiped tables,mopped the floor, vacuumed, cleaned bathroom. It was awesome. At the end of the night Dad came in and it was kind of awkward but they told him I'd be done in 15 minutes so yeah. Then Albert handed me some cash, $28,so I got paid $7 an hour which is good. Then After helping Danae with soda fountain Albert said I could go so I asked Sean what time he wanted me to come in tomorrow and he said 10:30 (an hour before opening, I think) so that he could train me! Yay! So I have a job! i clocked out and in and everything and I think i overheard them saying that Roberta had "hired" me but they never told it to me to my face so I feel kind of weird about that,not being told if I'm working there or not. But I take the fact that I'm going back tomorrow as a good sign! I'm so tired! I went and talked to Emily she made me a hat and then I came home talked to dad about my crazy awesome day and then took a shower and now I'm on the computer and I need to read my scriptures and go to sleep. It's 1:02 am. Ugh.

Ballroom dancing

Tonight I went to Ballroom dancing. I went with Jenessa and Luke. Since I didn't come with date I felt really awkward when I got there and there were no guys that needed a partner, so I went to the chapel behind the gym where it was being held and practiced piano for a while.

There was a girl who asked if she could sit in the chapel and so she was my audience as I was practicing.  I also called Austin and caught  up with him.

Steve took us to DI and Walmart tonight because I needed storage containers and me and Chantal were trying to find dresses for our date tomorrow. We ended up trying stuff on at DI but didn't like it.

And then we found a dress at Walmart that we both liked so we just got it in different colors!

It is cold and there is still snow on the ground from a few days ago. It's supposed to snow again tomorrow, yay!

I thought I was cold in October when it was in the 30s and 40s but now that seems so warm! It's been in the negatives!

I can't believe I come home in just two and a half weeks! It's bittersweet. I am going to miss my roommates so much.

Snowball fight!

It's snowing and this time there's lots of it!! Well this is the most we've had this semester.

So I'm just sitting in the apartment watching Duck Dynasty (best show ever), and Austin says "Kayla don't look outside." So I did. And I ran to put my flip flops on and snowflakes are falling and shining in the street lights!

When my friends got back from seeing Catching Fire, and then Travis came over, we had a snowball fight! It was the most fun I've had since being here I think!

We kept dodging between the parked cars and hitting each other, it was the best. Also me and Travis were wearing our glasses and they got all wet and foggy from the cold so it was hard to see!! Haha!

It was almost midnight and we were in the parking lot yelling and squealing and running and accidentally hitting people's cars and windows. Oops.

We were soaked and our hands were freezing when we came back inside! I love the snow! It's so beautiful!

I took a lot of pictures the last few days. It's cold and the Christmas lights are out. We had a great Thanksgiving at a family's home who lives in Idaho Falls. My roommate connected with them because their son is currently serving a mission and is in her home ward right now.

It's Thanksgiving and I love that the Christmas stuff is up! It is so beautiful.

More adventures from the other night. We found this balcony that we had heard about. It wasn't as high or as awesome as I thought it was going to be, but hey. 

I love my friends. I love being here. It is crazy to me that the semester ends in less than a month! I'm so sad to leave my friends, but happy to leave the cold! Haha. I'll be back for Spring!

I want to write more but my mind is blank right now.

FHE, First Snow! and General Conference

General Conference was so uplifting! We watched the last session broadcasted from the Taylor Chapel on campus.

The other sessions we watched from the comfort of our living room.

There was a freak bout of snow! It came out of nowhere and was over and melted all within 10 minutes! It was my first time seeing snow in 7 years! Me and my other Florida roommate were jumping around and squealing!

We had a FHE birthday party. Me and Jenessa made the cake.

He was super surprised!

Me and my roommates went to Zumba three times last week! It was my first time ever and it was so fun! Haha, I love it soo much! We are going again this week!
