My latest project:

17 December 2009

For my persuasion communications class, we were divided into groups, and we got to pick a community project... to persuade our allocation committee to donate a 200 dollar grant towards. We had to research the community project and write media-kits..appendixes..blah blah....basically a 20 hour project. I made this video for part of our presentation.

Other community projects that my class did include: a rape awareness program, a homeless shelter program, the Idaho Meth Project, and boy scouts. When all is said and done. The boy scout team one. WHAT THE HECK?!?? Their presentation was horrible! they were all "duh dar dar.. we believe the boy scouts need the grant because they need new backpacks and sleeping bags and stuff to help the community. dar dar" (as drool drips down their faces) but they somehow won! Forget about saving lives from cancer. Forget about helping homeless people in FREEZING cold rexburg find jobs and shelter and food. Forget about saving people from rape. Forget about saving our teens from meth. "Lets go buy backpacks and sleeping bags! wheeeeeeee!" I dont get it.

Thanksgiving and such.

08 December 2009

Well, well, well. Rexburg is seriously FREEZING. It has been in the negatives every morning this week. SO cold. Jared and I helped his mom decorate their house for Christmas, and she let us borrow some of her left-over lights in return. Our apartment is definitely the cutest :)

We walked out of our apartment for church a few weeks ago, and there was SNOW on the ground! Jared ran and got his sled, and sledded down the side walk (in his church clothes) he is such a little boy sometimes. I love him.

I forgot to bust out my camera at our thanksgiving dinner at Lashaun's, but here is a picture of us at Ben and Mere's playing Yahtzee. Charley wanted to play too! (I think she beat us)

We ate at a hole-in-the-wall place called Moochies. It was actually pretty good!

Mmmmm meatball sub! lol
Last weekend, we went up to the mountains for the Activities Program Retreat for BYUI. Jared is a director for next semester. I just tagged along.
Long Car Rides Drive Us Crazy.

We had a competition at the retreat to see who could build the best Gingerbread house! It was hard though, because each person in the team had a different assignment (1 person was the leader, but couldnt touch anything, one person could only touch the candy, one could only touch the frosting..and so on) Ours was the santa on his sleigh. it was TOTALLY the best, but only got second to the Jewish Synagogue??

We did tons of different activities and games at the retreat. It was fun! We were supposed to be learning about leadership skills. but all I learned is "if ya wanna win, ya gotta cheat!" heheee thats why my team won everytime.

These mountains are sweet. I've been snowboarding on the tall ones you can barely see in the distance. It was pretty good ski resort.
