Here's an update on my life right now!
First I am still attending BYU-Idaho. It's going great! I love it here....except for the cold...but what do you expect, its Idaho. I am in my 3rd semester. I currently do not know what I want to major in, but Ive been praying and waiting for an answer. I am still single...i know shocking since i am at BYU-I-do right? but yup still single and ready to mingle. I am trying hard to keep my grades up since the first two semesters didn't go so well....but I'm working hard. My family moved to Saratoga Springs, Utah in August, so i get to see them more often. I miss them still but its better than being 2,000 miles away. My puppy chip is 3 now. HOLY CRAP! he is not a puppy anymore, but he will always be MY puppy. I love going home to see him. My mom thinks i don't miss her as much as i miss chip, but some days i do! HAHA! He is my baby, so i can miss him a lot...right? Last spring i lived with Emily Gerhartz one of my best friends. We had a blast! Compared to my first semester it was like heaven on earth! This semester i am living in an apartment with 2 girls. So including me there are 3 of us. I have a private room which is sooo nice! I like it here. its close to campus and my roommates are pretty flippin sweet. Next semester i will be getting a car! woot! My brother David left on his mission in December so i am buying his truck. Its a 1998 ford explorer 4wd. I can hear the dunes calling my name!! I am so excited to get it. I cant wait to go off roading! one of my favorite things to do. I need to find some boys who will drive my truck, cause I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to doing the driving. HAHA!
well off i go to eat some dinner and do some more hw. comment if you have any questions on anything i didn't mention, or vaguely mentioned! Thanks to all my followers for being so loyal, even though i haven't been!

Well...here's a quick update on what ive been up to the past while.
I graduated from highschool on july 23rd 2010 and I am so glad to be out of there!!
In August 2010 i moved to rexburg, idaho with my puppy chip, to try and get a job and work until i went to school in January.....unfortunately i had no luck on the job front so i decided to go back home. So at the end of december me and chip packed up my landlords car who needed it in Ohio and we began our road trip back east. We drove on the first day to Idaho Falls where Arli lives and i went to breakfast with her....then we headed off and drove from IF to North Platte, Nebraska where we spent the night in a pet friendly hotel. I had a king sized bed all to my self (and chip). The next day i ate breakfast at the free continental breakfast they had and then headed off to St. Louis, MO where i spent 2 nights at the Yergensens. It was a blast! i was so glad i got to see them after such a long time! Then we packed the car back up and headed to Columbus, OH where my landlord met me at my "uncle" dave's house and picked up the car. I stayed there for two nights and then my uncle drove me back to NJ when he had to return to work. When i finally arrived home......
My brother was given my room....(his old room) and i had to sleep in my parents bed/the basement.....then Whitney Rockwell offered to let me go live with her. So i did.
I moved into the Rockwell residence....2 parents....5 kids....and shared a room with the oldest Ashleigh who is 7. I had a blast! i absolutely loved living there...and i hopefully will be living there again when i come home in the summer. if they'll let me
I got a job after 3 days of being home at a fast food type restraunt, Pollo Tropical as a cashier. I liked it there and i will have the job back when i return in the summer....The people there were nice...although like everyone there is always someone that gets on your nerves so of course i had one of those. BUT i lasted.
On January 1st i then returned to ICEBURG, BYU-Ido, etc. for my first semester as a college freshman.
So far the semester has been great.....a couple problems with roomies, but survivable. Classes are all good....grades good....getting better....working on it! hehe
Next semester i will be roomies with one of my BFFs Emily Gerhartz and it will be great! I am so excited.
My major is Psychology with a minor in child development....i am not exactly sure what i want to do with that yet, but i still have time. I love learning about the mind and i love helping people so i think child psychologists....maybe in a hospital....maybe my own private practice, maybe ill change and go to social work....idk it'll come to me.
Well it may not have been quick, but it was an update. Here are some pics of

Although Ashleigh got stung by a bee the kids were out of harms way and they all fell asleep in the car on the way home. Tiring day playing with cousins!
Goodness I sound like a mother posting about her day with the chillens! wow! I cant wait to be a mom though. I love it...okay I WILL wait but I love the connection moms have with their kids.
HA HA! I already have names I love and everything for my kids! I like Anna Lee, Dannilynn, Mattie Rae, Emma Marie, Connor Fredrick, Cody Rae, Cory Dale and Corbin Lee... see their beautiful! I probably wont use all of them of course! I will probably stop at 4, cause after that is just too much!
I even made 6 babies on Facebook!
Any way, when we left Mandy's around three, Taylor and I went over to Whit's to swim, which lucky us it started get cold and cloudy right as we got in...we stayed but not for very long!
After we all got dry and dressed, Taylor, Whitney and I watched Confessions of a Shopaholic which was SOOO cute! I loved it! he he

The ride ~ Danie Marie
Lost in those eyes
blue like the skies
A magical carousel ride
in the tide of the ocean
The sweet whisper of wind floating in the distance
the distance between life and a fantasy
Trying to grasp the idea of together
gripping the end of an unraveling love
The ties break loose and all is undone
Falling deep into a lonely slumber
Not waking would be great,
all so soon the light pokes at eyelids
The heart crying for attention
The skin crawling for affection
Lost in this maze
can't fight this dark daze
The loneliness is too much
gotta move on
gotta be strong
suddenly the wind of change sweeps by
the smell of mem'ries forgotten
longing to hold what the heart so desires
To get lost in those eyes
blue like the skies
