Macy's and cookies!

So i got a job!!! I am so happy about it! I filled out an application online that took a while because they had 230 questions on it! It was crazy and I finally got a call back on Tuesday that they wanted to set up an interview for Wednesday. So I went in and the interview went really well. I was really nervous before! I tend to start blabbing when I get really nervous so I was praying the whole time that I would be calm and just be me-self. Also to help all my nerves, as me and Amanda were driving to the mall, on the radio the lady was talking about how people now a days dress inappropriate for job interviews. So the whole time I'm looking at my outfit wondering if mine was okay! I went in and the lady was so nice and the interview went great! The whole time I was just trying to remember all the things my teacher in high school taught us in speech class during our interview lesson. Sit up, don't move your legs to different positions, don't say um, and so on. But at the end of the interview she told me that she liked me but that they already had some students working there and would need to see if they could fit around my school schedule for the fall. She said she would get back to me so I left. I called Amanda and she was waiting for me out in the car, so I walked out the doors I thought were the right ones, which ended up not being the right ones. So I walked through Macy's again to get to the other side and the lady that did my interview called my name and said that she was talking to one of the ladies there and the lady said to hire me! I was really excited and I'm going in to figure out the details today! Yay! I really don't like job searching and I'm really glad to get that done! The only problem now is I can't decide what I'm going to do for the fall. I could live at home and save a lot more money for different things, which would be really nice, but I love being at school! I would have a social life! But it's just more I need to think about! Ugh! I did read a scripture last night about searching out everything and then ask the Lord if it's right (or something like that). So I'll weigh all my options. Mostly I just want to be with my friends at school! ha

I was getting a little bored last night so I decided I would try cooking! I've been seeing this preview for Julie and Julia and I felt like cooking. So I decided oatmeal cookies sounded really good! I used the butterscotch bag that had a recipe and thought it sounded pretty good. I decided to double it and so I first had to double the butter. It said 3/4 cup and doubling that is three sticks of butter. So the next ingredients were sugar and brown sugar. They both were 3/4 cup so doubling it, I assumed because I was thinking about the butter, I put three cups in! After complaining the whole time that that was a lot of sugar and all we would be eating was sugar, my mom and dad figured it out. So we pulled sugar out and I kept going being very careful with my math! ha They actually turned out really good, thankfully to my mom and dad for figuring out what I did wrong, or we would have ate really sugary cookies! :)

peer pressure!

So I never really thought about starting my own blog until my roommate and our friend had one. I really liked looking at theirs and thought it might be kinda fun to have my own. I originally thought that I would just wait until I am married, like most the people I know do, but I really like to blog and I keep up my families blog that I was thinking I would want one me-self. I gave into a lot of peer pressure (not the bad kind) from Britni and Leah this semester that I thought I might as well keep it up! haha

So to update on what's going on with me now.... I just got done with my summer semester which was a lot of work...but more fun! I really enjoyed it! I miss it a little bit right now, but I am happy to be home. I am currently applying for every job in Idaho Falls in hopes to get something to help me get money while I have my summer break before I go back to school in the fall. It's been kinda fun to have a lot of different opportunities for jobs here in Idaho Falls than the jobs I could choose from in Aberdeen, which is close to nothing. I'm also excited to go to our new singles WARD (yes it is a ward and not a 10 person branch in American Falls, jk, that branch is very unique and I will miss linger longer:) It's fun to be new in a singles ward, haha, if you haven't seen the second singles ward movie it's worth watching! It's hilarious! GRANDPA! haha

Yesterday, Sarah, Amanda, Nic, and I went and saw Harry Potter again! I love that movie!! There is a lot of great acting in it and I think all the characters showed that! One that I noticed more was Draco did an excellent job at his part! It's also hilarious!! I about pee my pants when Harry drinks the luck potion! His facial expressions are so funny! I think the professor slughorn does an excellent job too!

So that's about all I got right now! I guess we'll see how long I can keep this blog up! :)
peace out!
