Life of Bryn

I figured I would post since it has suddenly become popular again. So semester is finally coming to an end which is great! I have had a pretty tough semester so I am excited for classes to end. Nothing of significance has really happened this semester. The biggest thing was probably when Amy, Jen, Meg and I went to Arizona which was so fun. The biggest thing I am anticipation is the future. I am living with Amy for spring semester before she leaves for the mish which is great because I will miss her terribly. I am also really excited for the study abroad program that I am doing in the fall. I started a block class in march that is supposed to prepare me for the trip. Every week I get more and more excited. It sounds like we will be going to paris and Scotland and all over England while I am there. I can't wait! Everything else is going well. I am kind of lacking in the boy area but thats okay. Sorry there is no photo but I couldn't figure out how to upload one.

Locks of love....

.... I CHOPPED MY HAIR! It was slightly impulsive in the sense that I decided I wanted to do it, told Amy, and she pretty much cut it an hour later maybe. No time to think. Just time to cut. I have cut my hair like this before a few times, which is why it didn't really freak me out - if you know me, you know I always do drastic haircuts. I was ready for a change, especially for Africa this summer (woot woot) and now I can actually brush through my hair with complete EASE! You have no idea how happy that makes me! So yeah..... crazy, but here it is! What are your thoughts? Do I look older or younger now? I cannot decide.

Thanks for allowing me to be impulsive Ames!

Its been awhile.

Its been awhile since i have visited this blog. It was sad for me that people said they would post and continue the fun and then didn't. So i stopped caring. But i still love the initial idea of the blog (and am putting off studying) so here i am to give an update.

Time is flying past. It is really freaking me out. Unbeknownst to some of you, for the last year i have been considering going on a mission. For the past year, my life and thought process has stopped in March. I have known i would put my papers in, in march. The end. April wasn't a reality. At work we have to turn in our "time off sheet" by the 15th of the month for the following month. I completely forgot to do it because i haven't even considered the fact that April is only two weeks away and it is fast approaching. It is scaring me. I love my life right now and am not ready for it to change. I love my roommates, my ward, my social life, my job, pretty much everything.

My papers still aren't in yet but they should be by April. I am ready to have it taken care of but at the same time i need my world to stop so i can just relax and stop stressing about my future. Its a lot to handle.

Also i am really trying to pull my grades up. I have never really considered it before, but i might want to go to grad school. I don't want my lack of focus and laziness to prevent me from furthering my education. The most frustrating thing about it is that when i do try i get A's and B's and C's and when i don't try i get A's and B's and C's.  I have studied really hard for three tests this past month and i pretty much did just as bad as if i hadn't studied. It is very annoying. I like my classes and for the most part I like my teachers, but i hate their tests. In fact, even writing about it is making me mad so i better move on.

I really love my job. I have good days and bad days but i never dread going to work. i have formed bonds with my residents and look forward to seeing them and helping them. There is always an adventure to have.  Yes, i get poop and piss on me, and clean up throw up and bodily fluids no one would really want to touch. And i get yelled at and cursed at and stress about blood pressures and oxygen levels. But these are real people with real stories and i love them! and i have great co-workers which also helps make it that much more fun and fulfilling. I know that whatever i do in life, it will have to revolve around working with people because there is no way  i could work at a desk or in a store. My job is way more fun.

 Anyway, this is kind of a pish-posh post but it is what is on my mind. Mission= scary, school=ehhh, life= good. Love you all. Post if you feel so inclined.

I know you are all SHOCKED to see a post on this blog. It has been a long time... perhaps no one even looks at it anymore so this will not be seen? I don't have much to say but I just wanted there to be a recent post. Latest news:

1. I have to take my first behavioral neurobiology test tonight. I want to die. I am hoping for a B...... this class is just not for me. I want to die. Oh and did I mention.... I want to die?
2. I am going on a date this Friday with a brother of a girl I worked with over the summer. Random. But yay, maybe I can start getting over Ty.... finally.
3. I have started doing my bangs differently every and now and then. You can look at my profile picture on facebook to see the new way... I like being able to shake things up. Feel free to let me know if you like them that way!
4. I watched the Bachelor with Amy and Jen on monday and we want to kill Michelle - she is so dramatic and annoying and in my opinion, I don't know how anyone could ever fall in love with that girl!

That is all I can think of. The end.

In the Big Leagues

Seasons Greetings, and the merriest of Christmases to everyone.

So this break has been rather good for Jordan and myself. We have been pampered by family, tanned by the sun, and right in the middle of lunch last week I got a call from an agency called StruckAxiom.

They do some amazing stuff, here is their website.  I have been hired under the title "Social Media Coordinator." In a nut-shell they want me to make sure that the company is always doing/saying awesome things. I am their official blogger, twitter, facebook, reddit, digg, stumbleupon, foursquare, and linkedin mediator. Also, if I feel like the company needs to do something cool, or undertake a huge project for wickedly sweet branding, it is my call to do so. I will also be writing press releases, websites, ghostwriting etc. etc. We will stay in Orem as they are in Salt Lake but they also have offices in LA and Portland.

I start on the 7th, and already have time off for the wedding.  Thanks to all who may have whispered a few prayers my direction. They were not overlooked and I truly appreciate it.

My news isn't as exciting as Dane's but I have started a new blog called Eat Out, Dine In. Dane and I go to new restaurants or restaurants we love and I review them, and after that we find a recipe that matches the food we ate at the restaurant, I make it and then write about it. I am really enjoying writing my blog and I have so many new restaurants to write about after the break. The URL for my blog is check it out!
