You guessed it...

My fish is dead. I DEMAND A REFUND! Here I'm thinking, "It doesn't look like my fish is eating but maybe he is being a trickster!" FALSO. I had him for 1 whole week. So much for betta fish living 2 years! I still can't upload videos on here like I used to be able to (does anyone know why? HELP!). But anywho, Saje and I made Winston Jeffery a funeral video (you don't wanna miss it!). Watch it for Winston's sake on Facebook in my tagged videos.!/video/video.php?v=1698564623544

K Bye.

A Little Bit of Lately..

Sorry about the delay of posts, I have been a busy busy bee! Ever since this two jobs thing started I am CONSTANTLY up and at em'. My week looks a little something like this: Wake up at 7, institute, school (that includes gen eds AND all ballet classes), rehearsal, work, homework, sleep deprivation (Repeat). That is why I needed a fall break to catch up on blog posting (wow that wasn't a lame comment at all)!

Rehearsing for what you ask? Welllll every semester the ballet department puts on a student showcase. This is ballet grad students/normal student choreography on the rest of the ballet department. It doesn't necessarily have to be classical ballet, it can be contemporary or any type of dance. A grad student choreographed a piece I got to be in and it was AWESOME. I say that because it was a salsa piece and it was so fun to rehearse for because it was SO different than any dance I have ever danced before. Don't get me wrong it was really hard to grasp at first (try setting a salsa piece on about 15 ballerina's). It was crazy fast and we had to shake it like a Polaroid picture just about the whole time, but we got it all together in the end. I tried to upload the video of our dance but for some reason it isn't working, so here s a picture of all us ballerina salsa ladies!

Since my mom couldn't make it to my salsa performance, she got her own private one before she left town after helping my sister Leslie recover from surgery. I was sad to see her go, but before she could drive away I did my own dance for her in front of her car. Too bad you can't see her face in these pictures, it was CLASSIC! It was a combination of totally embarrassed (like the whole hood was watching or something) and trying to stay serious but fits of giggles kept coming out. It was pretty darn hilarious (ask Harrison and Leslie) I don't think I have ever heard Harrison think I was actually funny. Who is the favorite daughter/aunt now? Me. no question.

My Ballet teacher for the first eight weeks of school was named Calvin Kitten. My class LOVED HIM. He helped me a TON with the leg I broke (which is getting a ton stronger now) and was one of the best teachers I have ever had. Not only that, but he gave us free leotard days just about every week. That means we can wear whatever color we want instead of black (what we are required to wear everyday). The only rule was that we had to come up with a color theme without him knowing what it was... our class went a little over board and decided to do the theme "Calvin's Kittens" (which by the way was all my idea) instead of a color theme. He got a great laugh out of it and we continued to do crazy theme days every time he let us have a free leo day. Here are Calvin's Kittens :) Aren't we a fantastic bunch?

At the beginning of fall break one of my great friends from Colorado Kirsten Johnson got baptized! She goes to the University of Wyoming in Laramie. My friends from Colorado Natalie Bullen and Kayla Cardon (who go to BYU) made the drive down there for the weekend to see Kirsten's Baptism! Isn't she so pretty?!

The next happiest event of my Fall Break was this: Winston Jeffery Betta.

I LOVE HIM! Saje and I took a shopping trip to the Park City Outlets (DANGER ZONE) and we went to PETCO where we weren't gonna buy anyhting right? Well we couldn't resist when we saw these beautiful teal and red fins. Just look at him! He's "GORGEOUS!" -Pollyanna

Here's Winston's Home. Unfortunately he may die VERY soon because he won't eat. I've tried two different Betta Fish foods like, "Bettamins" (like vitamins haha get it?) and "Betta Pellets." He won't eat. Any suggestions how to keep a fish alive? What a disobedient fish he is.

At the very end of my Fall Break I saw two different shows. Thriller and Fun. Guess who I finally met at Thriller? Oh just my cousin Dayna who dances for the professional company Odyssey here in Utah. I have always heard that I had a cousin who is a way good dancer but that was an understatement. SHE WAS INCREDIBLE. I had no idea she would be such a shorty when we met with her after the show! Kelli and I towered over her! I was glad to finally meet Dayna.

Last but not least, Fun. This is my new favorite band right now. One of my favorite songs is on my blog Playlist right now so turn up your volume so you can hear it. If you know of the band The Format, the lead singer of that group is now the lead singer of Fun. Carolyn came out from Ideeho to the concert and she brought a friend from BYU too. I invited Kelli as well so it was a great girls night out! We were so close too!

I have a crush on the pianist/trumpeteer. His name is Andrew and when they were about to start a new song Kelli and I yelled "MARRY ME ANDREW" and you better believe he looked over and waved.

Now, I have to start school again. WOOF.
