on my mind.

“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, "hey girl, magenta!" and she's like, "oh, you mean purple!" and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, "no - I want magenta!"”
John Mayer

"I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting,
challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."

tonight was fun. I didn't go hit up all of the crazy halloween parties tonight partly because I really wasn't craving it and because I went to the haunted mill for the third time in just over a week. A little insane? Yes. But I can vouch. First time was for fhe, second was a group date thing, and third was when Jenae came to visit from Canada and we went with abby & clark, austin, zane, robert, the roommates and andrew and dustin. it was fun. then some of us went over to abby & clark's to watch robin hood. i was lucky because robert, austin and I got to watch the movie while laying on the love sack. Because of this I passed out 20 minutes in. 


1. Right now I’m having a slight obsession with New York City. Have I ever been there? Of course not. But right now all I’m seeing is pictures of central park and it’s making me cringe because I’m not there. I’m not walking through central park in some dark wash jeans, and v neck with a cardigan with a bangin’ set of boots. Oh man, how I wish I was there. Better yet? Go for a run in central park. At sunrise. Oh my goodness, this is officially on the bucket list.
2. I hate having a messy room, but lately it looks like it went through a hurricane.

3. I dyed my hair. It'd kinda dark auburn color or lighter brown. To me, it looks more brown. But I'm getting used to it. I needed some change.

4. Less than 3 weeks and I will be in Oahu with some of my best friends.

5. Not being positive on a major is quite stressful, let me tell you.

6. I finally got my lululemon pants today, and it was a grand reunion. 

7. I've decided I watch alot of tv shows. exhibit one: modern family, grey's anatomy, brothers & sisters, glee, gossip girl, the office, and when I have time 90210. man. i need a life. 

8. I really want to go on a hike. It's getting cold here, so I don't know the likely hood of going on a hike anytime soon. I'll go on one in hawaii and at home in california for christmas.

9. I am not looking forward to living here in the winter. I will be happy to be in rexburg sure, but I mean living in the nasty cold. Let's be honest. Not fun. at all. 

10. Yes, I have toms. Yes, everyone seems to be having them these days. My two guy friends absolutly hate them. No one knows why but they don't like them. I on the other hand LOVE my toms. seriously so comfortable. I want another pair, or two or three. haha slow down haley. 

11. I miss being in the sun. I really do miss everything about summertime. I love not wearing half as much makeup, swimming, laying out, having late nights and have it still be warm outside, fireworks, bbqs, and randomness. Come to think about it. I loved this summer. sure there were parts I wasn't too happy about, partly because I was home. But I did get to do some cool stuff. My "other" family the Morgans easily saw me everyday. and I loved it. who knows if they did? but I hung out with alex or connor everyday until connor left for his mission and then it was just alex and I. we caught up and did everything together. we had the bachelorette every monday night with andrew, tiff, ian, robin and eric. we were dedicated and only missed the week of the family reunion. we went on a workout phase and we did the insanity workouts for probably a month until we gave up. we had sunday dinners...every sunday. the morgans and I were together probably more than my own family and myself. haha. but they morgans are family to me. it was a good summer. I like the kind of relationships that just pick up from where they left off. and that happened everyday. so excited to be reunited with everyone, except connor, at christmas (well I get to see alex,cam and carter in 3 weeks).

too early.

so I wake up this morning and figure out that there is nothing in me that wants to go to class. I start justifying every reason why it's ok to miss class this morning. but then again it sucks when the only class that has an attendance policy is this one. what is even worse is my ability not to remember how many classes I've missed for this one already. I think i'm in the quota but just to be safe I'll make the trek to the lovely Smith building in the frigid cold. kill me. 

oh and hey ps. remember when i mentioned my best friend is on his mission! well elder connor morgan is doing amazing. and we finally got pictures yesterday!
what a stud huh? I realize that I'm biased because we've been friends since we were infants but I'll tell you he's doing great out there!
ok. so now today is possibly going to be one of the longest days. I have to rewrite the entire books of acts for a new testament project? a little harsh. I think so. But alas, it needs to be done. And somewhere in there I have to go to class, go to devotional, workout and clean my apt/room. life just happened.

wish away I say.

things I would love to call mine:

dress from anthropologie that I cannot bring myself to purchase.
I'm trying to buy this off of my parents, doesn't sound likely. But it sure does take much better pictures that the crappy camera I have right now. Oh and if I had this I could minor in photo? Maybe. Just a thought.

I'm upgrading to the iPhone4 come Christmas but I am really hoping they have the white iPhone out by then!!

never alone.

just found this song on homesharing for itunes. and i love love it. maybe it's because I love lady antebellum. who knows.

back to rexburg.

so as some of you know, this weekend I went to Canada, Calgary to be specific. I live with some canadians and they were going home for the weekend so I decided to tag a long because I had a passport. It was a good time. We went shopping... which I spent way too much money, but I'd like to think it's worth it. They showed me places they like to eat up there. It was a really short trip friday-sunday (two ten hour drives), but so fun. man oh man.
ok so this is the only picture I could manage to get up. blogger is being kinda lame right now. 
but something way cool happened when I was in Calgary. On sunday before we left we decided to go to a sacrament before hitting the road so we went to stacey's home single's ward. While I was there I ran into my friend Zach Zufelt. He's serving his mission in Calgary right now, and I had no idea that he would be there at that ward. Zach and I have been pretty good friends for years, we grew up together so it was so cool seeing him. 
as for what's new with me in my life. let's see. still going to school here in Rexburg. It's been unusually warm up here, but I have no complaints! Oh and by warm I mean 60s, but I did hear it is going to snow next week. Let's hope not! I'm avoiding the snow like the black plague. But let's be real here, I reside in Idaho. Well less that a month and I'll be in sunny Hawaii with Alex, Cameron and Carter. I am so excited to see them. Alex and I were inseparable this summer. I saw him pretty much everyday. And then we both went our own ways, so I'm excited to go play in Hawaii for 8 days. Should be amazing. I've heard it beautiful! Oh and I can work on a tan in November. I like that.  Oh Abi (my best friend from college) is supposed to be coming up here this weekend, I really hope so. If not then the next time I will see her is for her wedding in December...and that would mean that I wouldn't have seen her for 7 months before the wedding. craziness. Back to school. I'm not loving it...but who loves school? Right now I'm in route to getting my associates in July. So yes, that means I will be in rexburg for the spring semester (april-july). 3 semesters in a row will suck, but i'll still have that next fall and winter, so I guess that makes it 5 in a row. Ridiculous. Oh well. I'm getting my associates just in case I decide to transfer or anything. I'd love to do a semester in Hawaii. I just feel like getting my associates is the thing to do because I don't have a "set" major so I better be working towards something! 
Another thing: I'm craving a trip to San Diego. I do realize that a trip isn't possible until Christmas break. Maybe Audrey will want to go down, we'll see. Something that has been bugging me lately, the treadmill at my apartment complex is broken. Well it works in a sense. Yesterday I went running on it, and sped it up to 6 miles an hour, which is a decent run for me...and I was walking. So I had to put it up to 10 miles an hour for me to be actually running, so because the mph is off then the distance was off. Slightly depressing when you look at the distance and it says you've been going for many many miles and in reality you have not. ok enough rambling. 
blog on.

embarrassing to the max.

so as some of you know, college kids need money. so for that reason I donate plasma twice a week. yes, I realize that there are other ways to get money but this is the only thing that really works for me right now. but today was a day like any other. I went to class and then I decided that I should go donate today. So I made my little walk over to the plasma center on main st, went in the waiting room, and then I donated plasma. Easy, simple, and made some cash money. After I finished I left in a hurry trying to find my roommate Stacey, who was on the third floor of the library. I found her eventually and just visited for a bit. Then I started to feel uneasy, and honestly it was an odd feeling. So Stacey suggested I should eat something since I hadn't eaten for a good amount of hours. Then I just put my head on the table because I felt as though either I would throw up or I would pass out. Stacey kept talking to me but then I lost some hearing and it was rough to understand her. So I got up and walked as fast as I could to the bathroom.When I was almost there I was loosing my sight and was so scared because I've never passed out and honestly had no idea what was going on. I manage to open the bathroom door lean against the wall. Next thing I know, I'm flat on my back of the tile floor of the bathroom looking up at stacey. She didn't really know what to do, so I guess she grabbed some lady. She came in and helped me, they picked me up and got me to an apple and some yogurt. I figured this was the worst of my embarrassment. wrong. then the paradmedics decided to come and make sure I was alive. Pricked my finger, tested blood sugar and made sure my heart rate was ok. I'm totally fine, just scary that's all. but lesson learned: always eat after plasma.

breezes blow.

Well hello fall. fall is here, and I definitely felt the chill of rexburg last night. yesterday during the day was gorgeous though. so my roommate megan had the idea of going to pick apples in the orchard up on campus. both of us had never been there before so why not go? Sadly, we didn't find any good apples. After we were there for a bit we walked up to the temple. It was a good time. 

i'll put pictures up sometime soon. blogger won't let me upload any pictures. which is why I haven't been uploading anything. SOON!!
