Febrary 13, 2008

New Stuff keeps happening every day. Starting next week I will be tutoring 6 hours a week for 15 dollars an hour. One of my students, I guess that is what I would call them, is a little genius. She is in 7th grade and already in geometry. However, her teacher doesn't explain things and she likes to take any and all short cuts she can. That is where I come in. Her dad sat in on the first session and he liked my style so I am going to tutor her once a week until she is done with geometry. The other four kids vary but they are all willing to learn. Two of them like to come to tutoring and we get a ton of work done.

The local scholarship application is due tomorrow, so I have two essays to write to night, no big deal. They are all about me and my accomplishments. The weather has been amazing here, in the 60's and 70's for the past few days. I think spring has come to California. Valentine's day is tomorrow so for everyone that reads this, Happy Valentine's Day.

The dates for housing selection summer 2008 haven't been posted yet on the BYU web site so I am still waiting for that. Then I have to get a meal plan and hope that I get into Helaman Halls. I am so excited for college, how did you guys stand the waiting? Summer seems to be so close but so far away at the same time. It is strange to think that high school will be over soon. It has not gone by quickly for me but still, it has been a big part of my life. I have changed so much these past four years, it's really incredible. Well, anyway I love you all.

When I said that I could start worrying about tuition I meant that in just worrying about the next step. I applied for scholarships but I didn't get my FAFSA filled out in time because the lovely government didn't send me my information until after the due date for BYU. Well, there is always next year. I am going to work on getting more scholarships though and I will apply for the Hinkley next year. Right now I am working on staying on top of school and getting my drivers permit. The only problem is I am absolutely terrified of driving. I used to break out in a cold sweat when I thought of it, now it just gives me chills. I am planning to get my permit before March.

I had work on Saturday which was fun because it was in-service. I also wrote an essay on Brave New World and I did a bunch of economics homework. I have work at Heritage today at five and I have a four day week a head of me. Well, I love you all.

February 8, 2008

Well, I have registered for my summer classes for BYU. Now I just have to wait for housing selection and then I can start worrying about tuition.

We have just planted peas, potatoes, and artichokes in our garden and of course the chicken tries to eat the seeds so she'll have to stay in her coop. The raised gardens are fun and they make planting easier in that you don't have to bend all thee way down to plant.

I will be tutoring three times a week come next week and I am working two days a week. I get $15 dollars an hour for tutoring and $9.71 an hour for life guarding. Well, that is all that is new other than the fact that our only not spayed cat may be pregnant (yikes). That is all from here.
