You know how you normally should wake up feeling relaxed? Or wake up feeling a little bit more at ease than last night? Well this has been impossible for me! This morning, I arose more stressed than when I went down. All night I was dreaming of Excel Spreadsheets. How exciting huh? NOT! I only have to survive 3 more days. That is comforting, but not. Considering I still have to take 2 quiz's; write a paper; finish this HUGE project; and take a few tests while I'm at it. UGH! Not to mention go to work, feed myself- which seems to be quite the task lately- and keep myself from going absolutely insane! Why am I blogging? I'm simply trying to calm my nerves. I need to calm down. Guess what else has been on my mind? The fact that BYU-Idaho is rollin with the punches in having this new "LAPTOP INITIATIVE". What is that, you might think. WELL, it's where they are STRIPPING CAMPUS of all desktop computers, and requiring that EACH student MUST have a laptop. Oh, great. Well we HAVE a laptop but that brings about a problem when a husband and wife both have majors that require MUCH computer work. Not to mention 2 or 3 of my classes next semester involve being in a COMPUTER lab, which next semester...equals a lab full of power strips for laptops. Seriously- Clay's major, Business, requires him to have a laptop- no matter what, in class all the time. This is even before this stupuid initiative. My major, not required- we always used the computer labs. Well, now it's time for a laptop I guess. So they are forcing us to do this, and how do they compensate us? Special grants? NOPE! ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

This is all very helpful that Clay and I just recently discovered "LOST". All 4 seasons are on abc.com. How is this not helpful?! It is SUCH an intense show that we are both loving and seem to be getting addicted to. I've also suddenly gotten very into my book, "Uglies". Oh dear. Why do I do this to myself?

Well. I'm sure it will all be okay. I only have 3 more days of this! And then the heavenly 7 week break comes. Sorry for whining. Love you all.

I'm so glad you are almost done!! I would point out what you said about married couples to the college. It wouldn't hurt to voice your concerns.

love you!

You are such a great gal and a wonderful student, and I am sorry you are so stressed. Wait on the computer for a few days and see what happens. I agree with your girlfriend, all of the desktops won't leave the campus, I just know it. You'll do well I have faith in you love you so much. grandma

Wow, 7 weeks, that will be nice. The computer thing. Can you write a complaint? You guys can't be the only ones feeling this way. C'mon, it's mormonville and everyone is married and poor. Maybe it's not too late. Write a letter, or talk to someone. Sorry things seem to suck. They will be better. LOST!!! Yeah, that show is creepy. I can't handle it anymore. But it is very good. When Greg and I were on our Honeymoon we saw a crowd of people and a HUGE screen at night on the beach. So we went to check it out and it was the season premiere of LOST second season. Well, we watched for a couple minutes then left. A month later I read about it in PEOPLE magazine and I guess the WHOLE CAST was THERE!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!??? Man, I could've met them!
