Madalynn, today is your day of birth. YAY Happy Birthday now stop growing. There's no way you can be 15 already. I still think of you as a 7 year old.

You are so awesome the best little sister ever! You have become so funny and smart and knowledgeable. It amazes me how much you know. It's only because I still think of you as 7 not because I don't think you can know things.

I remember when you were a baby and you would tackle us and choke us and say "So they can hear you." Haha it was so cute, funny, and life threatening. But mostly cute and funny.

I love how you can make so many friends and everyone loves you! It's because you are awesome!!

You're also so beautiful. I've never told you this but I was always jealous of your nose. It's a very cute nose and suits your face nicely.

I'm so proud of you and how much you are able to do and how much you have accomplished. I love that you're so loving. And that you have a strong testimony of the Gospel. You are an inspiration to me and bring me hope for the future. Thanks for being a good example.

I love you!!!


Lindsey I'm sorry your post is a day late, I was busy since 4:38 yesterday morning. But I did text you a lot to tell you about Happy Birthday so that means I was thinking of you.

Anyways... I have an older sister named Lindsey. She is the best ol
der sister ever (even besides me I'm the second best older sister. She always takes care of me and we laugh together a lot. That's because we are both so hilarious, but especially Lindsey. She's very quick witted.

Ever since I was little I always copied Lindsey and would follow her around. That must have been super annoying, so I'm sorry. I took all the same classes Lindsey did in high school except choir because she's got the voice not me. Haha.

Here's a list of why Lindsey is the best:
  • She would always pretend to be my dog when we played house type games
  • she wouldn't let our older brothers pick on me...most of the time
  • If some one told her they didn't like me she would defend me, even if we had just been in a fight (yes this actually happened) (probably more than once)
  • She would let me come over all the time my first summer in Utah and stay with her.
  • She would always make me food too.
  • She's awesome HELLOOO Just talk to her for like 5 seconds and that's totally apparent
  • She made me live in P5 where I got to meet Shirley on of the best roommates of all time.
  • She is in Law School. I know you're jealous that my sister is smarter than yours.
  • the moooooooooon (bahaha)
Oh there's so much more. But you'll just have to believe me that Lindsey is the best. And I love her vair vair mucho.

Also I always thought it was awesome that Lindsey and I had our birthday's the same month. Actually I rememebr when I was very young and I could never remember what day my birthday was so I would always ask Lindsey. I always thought my birthday was closer to hers than it really is but that's just a funny story.
I think I've already told the story about how we got beat up by the girls at the ice cream truck, so I won't tell it again. But it's a funny one.

Anyways we've had so many good times together I wish I could relay them all here but I can't. I'll just end by saying... "You got a blimp with you right now. Sasquatch"

By the way if you haven't seen Inception, you need to because it is one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. I have a whole list of reasons why but that's not what this post is about. This post is about how I'm not sure If I'm in a coma and dreaming all the things that are happening to me lately.

Because first of all I was really sure that my friend had deleted me off a Facebook. And I was sad because I kinda have a crush on him but then when I got on Facebook today we were still friends. And Like yesterday I missed class because I was sure that my class started at noon. It doesn't, it starts at 11. When I got there everyone was leaving, and I told them what happened and they all laughed because they thought I was joking but then they realized I was serious...Yeah it was super embarrassing

And then I've just had this overwhelming feeling the last two days that things are different some how. IDK it's just weird. Not like deja vu, but just that these weird and sad and bad things can't be happening. . I think I've just had my mind preoccupied with other things lately.

I want to write something.

I love you and I always will. I'm so proud of you.

That wasn't it but I think it will suffice.

Good Thoughts

So I have some good things I want to share with you guys.

I had what I'd like to call an Abraham moment today. I wasn't told to sacrifice my son but I think it was about obedience. And a thought came to my head and it was like "Alicia, you know sometimes it's not about what will or will not happen if you don't follow the Spirit, sometimes it's just about obedience." And what I think it means is that I need to listen more carefully to promptings and be obedient to them without worrying about why. Nike that's all. (well if you don't get the whole NIKE thing it's in reference to their slogan "Just do it")

I guess you're wondering about the story. Well ok I will tell you. I work as a custodian on campus very early in the morning (from 4-8am). At work we get a key, a master key to the entire building. Doors that you would need a code to get into , I can just unlock and go right in. It's a pretty huge responsibility if you think about it. That's a lot of trust they put in our hands.
SO yeah, they keys are on chains with a key ring on both ends so you can attach it to a belt loop and you won't lose it. Which is what I usually do, but this morning I was wearing sweats and they didn't have pockets or belt loops, so I just would hold it in my hand or put in a pocket on the trashcan bag. I had to take the trash out 2 times today and when I would go I thought I would put the key in the pocket of the trashcan bag.
But I had this thought that I should hold the key on my person. And so basically I questioned why I should do that. And then I realized it didn't matter did it. Like right I don't know what's going to happen or if anything will happen at all I should just do it because God does know. So yeah that's that story. I thought it was cool

And I'd also like to say that I believe in the power of prayer! I love it!!!

Make 'Em Laugh

Lately I have been laughing a lot and that is nice. I love laughing. I love it when other people laugh. And I love it when other people smile.

I want to make you smile. What can I do to make you smile or laugh?

For me it's easy. I'm very easily amused so a lot of things make me smile and laugh.

Like my favorite line in the classic disney song "Part of your World"
"What's a fire? and Why does it- what's the word?- BURN"

Excuse me sir, are you a magnet?

Oh my goodness, I have never laughed so much in Physics as I did this morning. It was fun. A good start to my day. A day where all day I've been extremely tired. I feel bad because I was sitting in the front row of Geomorphology and I kept nodding off. Super embarrassing.
Well anyways I'm probably just procrastinating right now and I shouldn't be.
Tomorrow I'm going to Death Valley. When I told the boys in my physics group that one of them said "I'm afraid for you." haha so funny.
Here's a joke they told: Why was the skier crying? Because he got hit in the face with a snowball.

It's funny because it's not funny and dumb that someone would actually publish that in a joke book. Hahaha.

Ok and when that guy left he was like "Bye Alicia. Don't die in Death Valley."
I said I would try not to.

Pie Shakes and Pizza and Karaoke "OH MY!"

My birthday party was fun. We didn't end up eating sushi because it is expensive. But you already knew that. Instead we had pizza and pie shakes. Here's how you make a pie shake. Take a piece of pie and put it in a milkshake in the blender. I would make it a vanilla milkshake but to each his own. We made pumpkin pie shakes and they were delicious. Pizza is also very good. Yum.
Um there was a bit of drama at my party because well, we almost ran out of pizza but it turned out to be just enough.
I'm very glad my friends could make it. and very sad that some couldn't. And super sad that none of my family could come. :C <--- baby frowny face or the Bolton chin whichever you prefer.
Then we went to karaoke at Guru's and it was fun. I like karaoking. This is because I can act all crazy and it's ok.

On my birthday we watched Newsies. It is a great Disney movie that teaches you to Seize the Day. It has a young Christian Bale in it. He already acts like Batman in Newsies. We is Shirley, Jenny, Adrienne, Tim and I. It was a nice little get together. And I made a chocolate cake without frosting because I don't like frosting. Well actually Shirley made it, well I put the water in. :) And Jenny and Adrienne made me cherry chip cupcakes with Almond flavored frosting on top and it was delicious! Yum. If you don't know Tim is my co-program director at the Y-Serve office. Except he might stop doing it. But we are friends so it's ok we can still hang out de temps en temps.

I really want a shower. So I'm going to go. I wish you all could have been at my party. IF you weren't there and you were not doing anything on Sat night...I'm sorry we missed your presence.
Love always, Me

Realizing What You Already Know

So do ever have those moments where you realize something and it's just so awesome to you! But you then realize you knew that all along you just didn't have it hit home for you until that moment. ?? I feel like I have those constantly during conference time. It's like "Duh Alicia it's so simple and amazing!" or "Of course! If you love Jesus keep his commandments! SO simple!"

I actually had one of those moments on my way to class the other day. I don't know why I was thinking of this but I was. So I thought about how grateful I am for the
Atonement because with out it i would be utterly hopeless. I'd have no hope that I could live with my family for eternity, and no hope to see my Heavenly Father's smiling face. But we do have the Atonement and I'm so happy for it. It gives me hope by allowing me to repent and correct my course through life. It helps me to live through trials. Knowing that our Savior has born our griefs and sorrows is a great comfort. We can pray and be comforted during times of confusion and hurt. And it is such a great thing to know that and be able to feel it everyday. It brings me hope for my future and the futures of my kids (which I don't have but will someday). It Let's me be a happy person over all. (because I still have momentary bouts of sadness or anger)

I am so happy for the
Hope and Joy that my faith brings me! Yay!

Oh Dear

I love this part of the movie, and this song. Just so you know, I have no idea what the sound is like on this clip because I'm at school, in the library.

I named my Chemistry class Linda after his ex-fiance, because they're both lame.
