Nicole is here!

My mom and my sister came to Provo Monday night because NICOLE IS A FRESHMAN AT BYU and we've been getting her ready for living in the dorms and moving in and all that jazz. It's been great having them here and I'm really excited to have Nicole around. We don't get along too well when we have to live together but we can be really great friends if we just hang out once in a while. Anyway, we went to IKEA today to get her some things she needed and Cory and I bought some kitchen things we were wanting. We also went to DI and got a really nice ficus. Oh, and I love having my mom in town. She always buys me things. Like yesterday she brought home this gorgeous lamp and two nice bookshelves for us to put the rest of our books on. It's great to have them out of boxes. I'm so spoiled. And she's helping me decorate our new apartment. She's so much better at it than I am and I'm glad she's here to help.

P.S. This is my trying to keep goal #3. Today the blog was just more convenient than my journal.

I honestly don't know what to do with myself sometimes. It's 11:30 pm and I'm home by myself because Cory is in New Mexico for the weekend. And for whatever reason I just can't bring myself to go to bed. I'm not being productive in the slightest. I'm just sitting here at the computer facebook and blog stalking people. What is my problem? I know I could accomplish so much if I could just apply myself. I need a new outlook on life and new goals.
Are you ready for this? You better hold me to this!
1. I'm going to have personal scripture study every morning before I eat breakfast for at least 20 minutes.
2. I'm going to exercise daily whether that be my various exercise tapes or an aerobics class or a walk with Cory after dinner or anything in between.
3. I'm going to be a better journal keeper. I need to record my memories. I've always prided myself on having a really excellent memory but I know I won't be able to remember the lovely little details of my life forever and I want to be able to look back on this time when I'm old and wrinkly and smile about it.
4. I'm going to be an early to bed early to rise person. Cory is a night owl and so it's hard to get to bed before 11:30 but I'm going to try my hardest to be in bed with or without him (hopefully with him).
5. I'm going to limit my computer time. The brethren talk about this all the time, how we should limit our time with technology and spend that time being productive or with our families. If you see me on facebook chat, tell me to get off :)
6. This semester I am going to be a great student. This is my big one. I usually just scrape by with the bare minimum on my assignments and with cramming for tests but I'm going to make a conscious effort to actually learn this semester. I only have two left and I'm determined to make the most of them.
Well that's it. I don't actually expect you to make sure I keep my goals but it helps me stay faithful to them when I think somebody else is expecting me to do these things.
Love you all tons!
