Curious anyone?

So if you are ever curious about what public health officials do

check this video out.

I love what I can do with public health.

Ian you will appreciate this:

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

our Mayan friend we made

Liz's sexy legs

at our favorite restaurant with the best service

the best mommy ever

A Mexican Christmas!!!!!!

My mom and dad, bless their hearts, took Liz and I to Cancun the week before christmas! Best week ever. Instead of the week before Christmas turning into a marathon week, long... painful... neverending..., Mexico came first and then three days later christmas is here :) I feel so blessed. My parents are so generous, and I do not deserve it.

We held a spider monkey, it fit in my two hands, and no I don't have a picture so you will just have to trust me.

We swam in the dark in a bat cave, with stallagtites coming down to the tip of the water, an amazing and creepy experience all at the same time.

We went and saw ruins, and if any of you have seen the Road to El Dorado, the cartoon version, you will appreciate this--they had the ball fields where they hip bump the ball into the tiny hoops. THE GAME ACTUALLY EXISTS. I had no idea haha

All in all, I'd say it was a success.

I have a problem where I do not get enough sleep. I am getting approximately 6 hours a night. Now for the average 20 year-old, I think this would be enough. In fact in an article I read, the author said they feel the best getting between 6-7 hours. For me to feel my best, I need 9-10. I think, or perhaps it has just been so long since I have gotten a good night's rest. I am now falling asleep at my computer in the library. This has happened consistently for the past week. Tommy looked up some articles for me because I need help. They are interesting!

My absolute tip is #17 on the first article, compliments of Buddha.

Another cold december is here, thank you matt costa.

Here's an extreme close-up of myself in the snow.
I like myself and I have a lot of really great qualities.

And now for a little weather report of the past week:

Monday... freezing with snow and pink noses
Tuesday... more freezing with ice and numb noses
Wednesday.... 25 degrees
Today... 28 degrees.

Good news, it's warming up!

sisterly love

I think they actually should've made a t.v. show in the 90's called sisterly love, as opposed to brotherly love. I miss my sisters so much. I can't wait to see them on Thanksgiving!!!!

Some words don't need pictures

Okay so I don't have a picture to go along with this post but when I get one I will add it. The news is just so exciting I couldn't contain it any longer.... I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! with my social marketing professor-- and it was totally unplanned. I love it! I feel like there were promptings from the Spirit definitely. I asked her if I could do some research with her, I was thinking strictly volunteer experience mind you, but after we met together she told me it was a job. Something completely unexpected and marvelous: I am a RESEARCH ASSISTANT. ya baby. I feel so blessed. All day I have been so blessed. The day just keeps getting better and it is only 8 pm. Also, I am volunteering with the Utah Health Department trying to gather research for Hispanic teens and tobacco use. SO what I've been doing is going to the Provo Rec. Center called "the Center" and trying to get kids to take some surveys for me. I mostly get awesome skaters ballers and its so great. I love it. I love these kids! haha they are so entertaining and we have had some great conversations.

halloween fun

May I present... Mr. and Mrs. Smith :) this was our halloween costume. Tommy loved it because he could carry around a gun, and I was in a dress. Perfect costume

After we went to a get together with our friends, we proceeded to go to Dane and Rachel's to watch a scary movie. We watched What Lies Beneath. I squealed several times during the movie, and I made Tommy stay in my apartment until I was in my bed. haha
