The Light Bulb

So I have started this dang post about three times, each time I think to myself that people don't want to hear me vent, you sound stupid Kaylie but you know what, I don't care at the moment I'm going to vent and if you want to read have at it.

I have had a terrible, horrible, no good week! I feel like that childrens book. I have worried about so many things. I have had SO much CRAP due in school. I had a lesson to teach at the preschool which I almost slept through thank goodness I woke up five mins before I was supposed to be there. The weather has been crap. I have just felt like a really big failure and I haven't been able to shake it! I had such a wonderful time in cali with my family and then I come back and have a crap-tastic week. (Cali post coming soon)

I found out Sunday that my ward was going to Baptisms today and I really didn't think I could go. I kept thinking today that I didn't really want to go. Can I just say that I am SOOO glad that I went!! I went and got my hair cut on Wed. I got some much needed advice from one the guys that was cutting hair there. But tonight at the temple I could feel the spirit so strongly. It made me feel so good to think that I am helping people to reach their highest potential. I could feel the love that those people have for me even though they haven't met me yet. It made me realize that even though I have had such a crap week and even though I have so much worry on my mind I will always have a heavenly father that loves me and that all this little stuff doesn't really matter in the long run. I am so grateful i went.


P.S I get to go again on Saturday!!
P.SS Sorry for the spelling I don't feel like proofing it tonight.

A fun weekend

HEY O :]

So not much going on down over below where ever you around here. I did make some yummy food though :] Let me explain myself!!

Yes I'm on a diet. Do I always stick to it? NO, Heck NO! :] Friday Jess and I were talking about Rice Krispies, which reminded me of girls camp, which reminded me of the Glaziers and how Jaenea would make these AMAZING peanut butter, chocolate rice Krispies. She would make them for us for girls camp for like the five years they were our camp leaders. I looked it up and found the recipe :] I made them and......they taste AMAZING! Much better than the Powder sugar choking hazard lemon squares, only Jess liked them lol :] I also thought of Christmas break where I went over to the wonderful Blakes household and found miss Delaney making oreo truffles and smashing them in a bag! I thought to myself, "hmm self I really want some of those wonderful Oreo Truffles." So, after going to see Valentines Day which btw is AWESOME :] LOVED IT! we came home and Allison, Jess, and I made Oreo truffles. They turned out AMAZING :] They are by far my favorite candy i think! We had a lil too much fun with the chocolate!

Before :]


Then I figured out that the oreo mixture made a good face mask!! So I attacked everyone else :]




Favorite picture BY FAR





Saturday morning I wasn't able to sleep in thanks to my inner clock. I finished the Last Song (SOOOOO GOOD BTW) and then Jess and I went over to IHOP! It was Super yummy! Last minute we decided to go to Zion to get away from Cedar and to take some pictures of Jess. She hadn't been there in awhile so we enjoyed ourselves.

Me and my crazy hair at weeping rock

My head looks squished

Good Evening out there :]

I really should be writing an article about assessment right now...I have locked myself in my room so that I will finish it. However, here I am not doing it. Procrastination has become something i'm an expert at!! Today I want to blog about something mostly for me but if you want to read it you're more than welcome.

Also if you haven't caught on I print this blog off so it's like a journal for me, that's why I have random posts sometimes.

I have been thinking a lot lately about my major. So, i'm going to answer the question: "Why did you choose to go into education?" and "Why do you want to teach?"

Good questions huh? I think so. Honestly for awhile I didn't know what I wanted to do. My problem is I have so many things I want to go into. I would love to do photography, interior design, learn more about history, creating things, and so on, the list is endless. Since I was about five I have said that I was going to be a teacher, so I can't really tell you when I said OH! Teaching is for me! I really can't remember. I don't know what made me say I wanted to be teacher, maybe it was because thats what every little girl wants to be when they grow up, but here I am. I came to SUU because it had a great education program and so that's the only school I applied to (boring aren't i?). Honestly though the thought of teaching until about three months ago scared the CRAP out of me!! I don't have a lot of confidence and putting myself out there is extremely hard for me. I have heard all my life that I would be a wonderful teacher but honestly I didn't believe them. I doubt myself. I try to live up to this expectation that I have for myself that is pretty much impossible to fulfill. What i'm trying to say is i'm a perfectionist (if you went to high school with me you already know this lol). I love kids to death and they crack me up! It wasn't until these past few weeks that I finally felt that I can teach, that I will do a good job as a teacher, and that I will make it through it. I'm still scared to death but I now believe in myself. I realize a little bit more of why I want to be a teacher. I am comfortable with kids. All my shyness goes away when I teach, I am silly, and loud. I feel so much better when i'm around kids than I do when i'm around people my own age. I have a hard time talking to people, i laugh when i'm nervous and its probably very annoying (sorry to all guys that I am around and if I laugh around you a lot). I can NEVER think of anything to talk about! I'm not dumb, but for some reason when I go to talk I am so scared that I will sound stupid. What i'm trying to say is that I am doing the right thing. I feel comfortable and that i'm finally in a place that I feel is my place to be. I feel this same way when I take pictures, play my violin, or work out. I guess you could call them my comfort zones. Now all I need to work on is life. :]

No complaints
