Silent Movies

Heather and I filmed a silent movie yesterday.
I got to play the villain.
It was marvelous.

You may watch it here:

Heather says I really look like a man here.
I agree.

Welcome to the rain

I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of rain on the pavement. I sleep with my window open so my room smelled like rain. I love that.
The rain here is something that I enjoy a lot, at least in the Fall. Now that it's started, I'm prepared to never see the sun again this semester. I'm even kind of excited for it to start snowing in a couple of weeks.
I love Rexburg.

Well, I've done it. Now what?

Despite not having a functioning computer at my fingertips all day, everyday, I've completed my homework. I feel accomplished and wonderful. At the same time I wish I had more so that I would be kept busy doing that instead of watching reruns of John and Kate plus eight. I've gotten a jumpstart on my New Testament homework and I'm all over my spanish for tomorrow.

This semester almost ALL of my professors have decided to post the homework assignments online. In addition to posting them online, they are to be turned in online. My spanish teacher even found a website that allows you to record things and then leaves the recording in an 'audio dropbox' where she can access them. It's handy for the professors and makes grading things and recieving them simple. However, with the internet as it is here is as sketchy as it is and with iLearn (the school's teacher-student connection device) only working half of the time, homework has suddenly become much harder to complete.

For hours on end iLearn has been inaccessable today, disabling all of my roommate from being able to access our assignments. I've done as much as I could without going on iLearn, which has been a fair amount, but that still leaves me with a couple assignments half done, just not turned in. It's really frusterating.

I know it kills trees, but can't we do homework on paper? Paper can't shut down or stop working.

I've got most of my things unpacked and everything in my new room (Randi's old room) have been rearranged and it feels like my room and not Randi's. It feels good. I'm quite happy with it.
The roommates of Tuscany 133 this semester are Amanda, Heather, Shelly, Taylor, Tory, and Emily. I don't know Tory or Emily very well, but so far they seem pretty nice. I'm excited for the new semester. Beginning a semester here is a new start completely open to new friends and new classes and experiences. It'll be fun and interesting an I'll probably grow up a little bit more. The friendships I have already will become better and the new ones will add to the long list of good friends I have here.

Looking back on my first year in college, I have to say that this has been the best year of my adolesence. I've made the best of friends and I've experienced so much responsibility and independence and I love it. It's been awesome. BYU-Idaho has been awesome.

After fifteen hours of driving, I'm finally here. It feels like coming home.
