Ok, so over the past four days I have been reading the new Fablehaven book. Number 4, Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary. I finished it today! I am so mad! Holy cow! It was ridiculous! At the end there was this HUGE twist that I absolutely did not see coming. And it made me so mad! One of my favorite characters was actually... well, I don't want to give it away. But it made me really mad! Arg! And then, the book ended with a ginormous cliff-hanger. Misery! I have to wait until next year for when the fifth book comes out. Rats! I'm really freaking out. So much crazy ridiculous stuff is happening in those amazing books! I have no idea where Brandon Mull comes up with this stuff. It is pretty awesome though! I couldn't have done it. Garsh.
Other than that, I haven't really done anything today. I did get an email from Jared. That was nice. But it is also really hard. I can't even describe how much I miss that punk. I'm pretty much a mess right now. There's not much that can be done though. I'm gonna write him a letter tonight and send it tomorrow. Not that you care, but that's what I'm gonna be doing. And also, I am going to send him an Easter package! I got some of those plastic eggs and put Robin Egg candies in them along with some of my favorite quotes! Also, I'm sending him peeps and a litte thing of Play-Dough. :) I sure hope that he likes it! Man, it is really hard to be away from my best friend. Just sending letters is rough!
Oh, I have come up with a theme song for Utah weather. It goes thus:
It's hot then it's cold, there's sun then there's snow. It's nice then it's not, it's all that we got.
That is my song about Utah weather. Woot.

My dog Sparky is the cutest little puppy in the whole world! In fact, it was pretty hilarious! I went home last weekend and my mom gave Sparky a giant hunk of ham. Bone and all. Sparky was like a wolf! He was honking down that thing, and if anyone got close to him, he would hover over it and growl really deep in his throat. It was crazy!
Just look at that little cutie patootie! I have never in my life seen that little dog so ravenous! It was pretty funny. So that he wouldn't get sick from eating so much meat, we had to get it away from him. That was quite an adventure. We took him outside, and he took the meat with him. Then, when he set it down to sniff something, he walked a couple of feet away and we were able to snatch his meat away! He was really upset about that, but he does get to eat some more every now and again! Just look at that stance! It just says, "Melanie, I love you. But if you dare come any closer, I just may have to attack you." What a crazy dog! I love him so much though. He's awesome!
Today a terrible thing happened to me, as well as an amazing thing. The bad thing was that I got a test I took a few weeks ago in Political Science back. I felt so good about that test! I really thought I was going to get at least a B. Ya, so much for that idea. I failed the test. That made me really upset because in that class, you get to drop your lowest test score. I was really trying to do well on the tests so that I just wouldn't have to take the final. Ridonculous. Now I have to take the final on the very last day of finals week. Extremely frustrating much. But on the positive side, I got a letter from Jared today! I haven't gotten one in three weeks! And I learned that it takes 5 days for a letter to get from Boston, Massachusetts to Logan, Utah. Woot! That isn't too bad. But it is still really hard having him gone. It has only been a month and a week and two days. :(

Hello, again! It has been a while. Well, not really, but still... Nothing too exciting has really happened in my life since mooning Sarah. But, I did go to the eye doctor on Saturday morning. There I learned that I have astigmatism in my left eye. I don't really know how to explain it well, but that is where part of the eye is shaped weird so it will always see things blurry. Contacts help, but it will never be perfect. Lame. But that's ok! I watched Bolt on Sunday evening. That movie is totally awesome! It is beyond awesome! It is Be-awesome! And also, it is ridonculous. :) I actually watched it again tonight because I love it so much! Ah! I love Disney movies! They are pretty much the best things ever! So it is really dumb because when my friends and I were watching Bolt on Sunday, we were in the lounge. And there were like, 40 people there. Ridonculous. And most of the people were paired off in couples. But then there was lonely ol' me sitting all by myself on one end of the couch whith a cuddling couple on the other end. Bleck. Really makes me miss a certain someone. He was a really great cuddler! Oh, well! Today I also learned an awful truth. Even though I am in college, it is impossible to keep secrets from leaking out into Dear Ol' Davis High School. Phooey. Now, my friends, THAT is RIDONCULOUS!!! But, alas, there is nothing to be done about it. Anyway, you have a most spectacular day! Make good choices!

Ah! The moon! Today has been a great day in my life. I was able to check something off of my list of things to do before I die! Hooray! That thing, in fact, was mooning someone! I wasn't gonna but a picture of that sort of moon up here, because that would be porn! Ah! And that stuff is bad. So this week I have decided to start swimming on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Sarah. She's so healthy. Gosh. I need to exercise more. Hence, the swimming! So when we got there, I realized that I forgot some panties to put on after we were done. Dang. Luckily, after ballet I was able to run home and put on some underpants. I'm getting ahead of myself. So after swimming and showering, I had put on my bra and put on my tights for ballet just over myself. Hey, professional ballerinas do it all the time! With my tights over me, those are see-through, Sarah came after finishing her shower and was like, "Ah! I see your butt!" Psh! I put on my leotard and went to ballet. It's a good thing that leotards cover me! After ballet Sarah and I were back in the locker room changing into our everyday clothes. I took of my leotard and Sarah said, "That's kind of like you are mooning me!" Oh, now I had to give you a real moon. I pulled down my tights. Sarah screamed. It was hilarious! So now I have officially mooned someone. And my own sister! Bwahahaha! List of things to do before I die. Moon someone. Check.

Today has been very interesting. This morning I woke up at 6:30 to swim laps with Sarah. I was embarrassingly terrible at it. I kept getting water up my nose! It was really lame. And I got really tired really fast. Darn. Oh, and when I first got there, I realized that I forgot my towel and goggles. So I had to hurry home super duper fast and then go back. So much energy exerted for me to be healthy! I guess that is a good thing though. I was so exhausted in ballet though! Having that class after swimming for 40-ish minutes was ridiculous. But there is not really anything I can do about that now. Today is St. Patrick's Day! What a jolly holiday it is! I am wearing a green bandana! And also green M&M earrings! Woot! It is pretty awesome. I think I look really cute! Hooray for when that happens! I am way tired. I don't really want to go to my art class this evening, but I must. We're starting a new project today. A very vigorous and detailed still life done by charcoal. I'm really not excited for this one. Although I am starting to like charcoal, I don't know. Anyway, yes the picture here is random. But I like it! Pokemon is awesome. I still like it. Bwahahaha! It's fun!

Guess what? It's me again! Just having a party on my blog. Check out that snowman! Me and Jared built that thing. It was so awesome! We had to use ladders to get the head on. And we had to get help from his dad and brother, too. All that packed snow is crazily heavy. You have no idea! That was on the last Saturday Jared was home before he left for his MTC. That kid sure is awesome. Hey, that day was Valentine's Day also! And the adorable man got me a rose. Awe shucks! What a sweet guy. He sure is amazing. Well, this snowman has a mustache! How awesome is that? We sure laughed hard about that one. It was sad though because Jared's brothers wanted to destroy the snowman with a bunch of weapons they have, no idea why they have them, but Jared said they could destroy it when he left. He meant on his mission. They thought he meant when we left to go say goodbye to neighbors. So on Monday when I went to his house to say goodbye, the snowman was gone! It only lasted two days. :( Poor snowman. Jared was pretty upset. But I'm pretty sure he is over it now. Hey, I got a letter from him yesterday! It was from a week and a half ago, but I didn't get it because I was home in Kaysville for Spring break. Ridiculous. I sure love to get mail! It was awesome! Jared totally rocks my socks. Like, so hard core. Woot!

Just look at those sickos! Well, maybe not. I'm really happy that my dear sister Sarah is so happy! She is my hero! And she has been for most of my life. I have always looked up to Sarah so much. She is such a beautiful daughter of God and has such a powerful testimony. I really hope that I can be like her someday. She even found this amazing man to marry! That is so cool. Sarah told me to marry someone like Andrew because he is such a great guy. And he is. It is so exciting to see my hero fall in love and prepare to get married in the temple! I'm so happy that she is my sister. She has always set me such a good example. More people should be like Sarah! Only people should not grope me in bed like Sarah did when we were in St. George. Man, that was one painful groping! But you don't care about that... It was kind of hard on the trip, being with a bunch of engaged couples. It really made me super duper lonely. But I had fun anyway. I really like spending time with Sarah. She is really smart and really thinks about things. I like to talk with her because she has really wise views on things. I sure am lucky to have such a good sister!

This is me and my best friend in the whole world! Jared Cline is his name. He is one of those friends that is there for you no matter how crazy, stupid, or careless you may be. Basically, he rocks my socks! At the moment, he is serving a mission in Boston, Massachusetts. Pretty intense, eh? I think it is awesome! We've been writing each other letters. And that is so much darn fun! I really love to write letters! It makes life very exciting. And, of course, it is also fun to get letters! It is so darn exciting when I get a letter from Jared! I screamed when I got the first one. People were poking their heads out of their apartments to see what the commotion was... Just me! I admit that I can be pretty loud sometimes. I blame it on being a cheerleader in 9th grade. I learned how to make my voice project! And it has always stuck with me. But that can be a good thing! Because it makes it easy for me to get people's attention! Woot!

It is true! I have joined the miserable life of the Blogger. I was never planning on sinking so low, but alas, here I am! Ridiculous, much.
