Wondering the nights events

A good thing is happening tonight.

Dance In Concert is tonight. You are probably wondering what that is right? Well. It is the concert that Contemporary Dance Theater does every year. Why is this a good thing?

Because dancing rocks. I will give a review when I come back from it. YAYAYAYAYAY!

Yeah. I am just a little excited.

Wondered why people are themselves? Yeah. Me too.

I am sitting in my apartment alone right now. I was going to go apartment shopping with my friend Anna who I am going to room with for the spring/summer term but she ended up not able to do that today. I also need to practice for tomorrow. I am singing a duet with Nick Sales in Sacrament tomorrow.

Because I was going to go with Anna today and then practice the song tonight I turned down a date. I feel kind of bad because this kid is a very nice guy. He wanted to go to the Irish Dancing concert with me. I would have loved to go..... I kind of didn't want to at the same time though. He is the type of person that is very talented, super smart, a little prideful, but extremely nice. He sings everywhere he goes.... constantly. I know he loves it and he has a great voice and all but it gets a little annoying after awhile. I can only be around him for so long with out being annoyed.

Do you have any advice for me? I don't know how to handle these situations very well.

The Wonders of Teeth and a Dentist

I love the dentist... on most occasions.

I have an appointment today... well in like 45 minutes. I usually don't get nervous about going to the dentist but I am talking to him about my wisdom teeth today. Wisdom teeth business just freaks me out. I kind of don't want to get them out. Actually let me rephrase that. I DO NOT IN NO WAY WANT TO GET THEM OUT! I really don't want to deal with it.

There is one problem however by not getting them taken out. My mouth is actually quite small. You wouldn't be able to tell by what noise level usually comes out of it but it is true. My molars are progressively getting more and more hard to floss. I rarely do because I can never get the floss in between my molars. They are so close and jammed together that even if I do get the floss in it when I try and take it back out it will usually break. I hate this. Because I can't floss I always get cavities. I only get them in between my teeth and it is rare if they are anywhere other than in my molars.

If it weren't for the money it costs to get them taken care of each time that I have a cavity I wouldn't be as disconcerting with this issue. I am going to see what would happen if we let my wisdom teeth just grow in. I think they are going in pretty well because I have only had two days where I have had toothaches because of (what I believe would be) my wisdom teeth. I just hope everything goes well.

Hopefully I won't need to get them taken out and I will only need spacers and/or braces. I could live with that. I wouldn't need to have them on that long because my teeth are relatively straight. An uncommon thing it seems for the Clark family. I am the only girl that hasn't had braces and I actually would be quite surprised if it actually came down to that.

It is found!

I found my phone!! Hurray! There isn't a battery or a back on it but that's okay. I have the phone. I will be going to T-Mobile later today to get a new battery and back for my phone. I am very happy I have insurance on it.

Frustrated to the max

I want my phone!!! I am getting so frustrated!
I lost my phone on Friday at the Richards Building... outside mind you. Well, I figured out like two minutes later that I had left it and went back to get it... making me late to work by like a half hour. Despite me going back asap and looking everywhere for it, it was no where to be found. I cleaned out my car and all of my bags to see if I had maybe put it in there some how and didn't see it or remember that I had done so. no luck. I went into the building twice that day and checked with them but nothing was there. I had to wait all stinking weekend to go to the University lost and found to see if it was there. I went there today to see if it was there but no luck there either! I am going to go in a minute to see if it showed up at the Richards Building over the weekend or something. If it isn't there I will go to the T-mobile store and talk to them tomorrow. I just want my phone back. I don't want to loose it totally and indefinitely. That would not be fun.
I am very frustrated with this situation. the. end.

Explain what?

My Mom put something on my family blog (you can look at it here) and so I have to explain.

At BYU there is a club called the International Folk Dance Club. It is the longest standing and working club at BYU. It has been there for 50 years now. The cool thing about this though, is there are teams to try out for and you will perform at the end of the semester. The touring teams PAC (Performing Arts Company- now World Dance Company) and Back-up are the main teams during the Fall Semester. SPAC (Spring version of PAC) is the main company during Winter semester while PAC is touring. This tends to be a lot of the members of the back-up team and then some.

The next team under these teams is called 2RB. 2 for the time slot and RB for what building. 9 and 10 Wisk are in the Wilkinson Center and are about the same level of difficulty. 8 Wisk and 1 Wisk are the same as well. Only 8 Wisk is offered during the Winter semester and 1 Wisk is offered in the Fall.

At the end of the Fall semester they had the auditions for those that were already on a team to go higher or on to one that would work better with their schedule (sometimes the case). 2RB was almost filled up at the end of these auditions. They had one spot for a guy and three spots for girls.

Well, last night I auditioned for a team on kind of a whim. I wanted to at least let them see my face and know who I was even if I couldn't get on a team. I was confident that I would get on a team of some sort but the only one that I could get on that worked with my schedule was 2RB. Yeah.... like I was really going to get on it right?

I went and had fun last night. We learned a part of the Ukraine National Dance the Hopak and that was super fun. We also learned a dance that they performed in World of Dance/Christmas Around the world that was only the girls doing it. It is full of foot work. I love this dance and I caught on pretty dang well. Well we started learning an Israeli combination when Greg (one of the teachers) pulled me aside and wanted to talk to me. I didn't really think much of it but I went off to the side with him and I saw in his hand a card that said 2RB!!!! He said to me, "Congratulations! We would love to have you on our 2RB team this semester!" I just said thank you and that I was excited to be apart of this, but inside.... AAAAAAHHHHH!!!! I was one of THREE girls that made it that night! I am am so excited! I start my first tomorrow. As of right now, I am on the second highest ranking Folk Team at BYU for the semester while PAC is on tour and SPAC (basically the back-up team) is the top company!

Well, that is the cool thing I had to explain. :)

Random Posting

Things around work are pretty boring right now. We haven't been doing anything really because the corrections (which I do) were on hold. Now they can't be done because Sarah Franz (my boss) just had a baby and doesn't work here any more. I am getting really annoyed. I just want to do something at work that is productive. I don't have anything to do today because no one is here either. What to do what to do what to do.... blog right?

Well I got a calling yesterday. Yes, I was a Relief Society Instructor but I was released yesterday. Our Home Evening Groups were switched up and I ended up being called as the Group Leader to group 5. The weird thing about this calling is that I was talking with my friend Patty about being able to get to home evening. I work until 7 every night and I didn't know what was going to happen with every one else. I didn't want to not go because it is something that has helped me get as far as I have. Then five minutes later I was called to this position. Wow. It all works out. Now I just have to come up with some things to do for it.

Well, Christmas was great! It was fun to be with Dave and Tana with there little babes Ansleigh. Loved seeing them again. I got a lot of things and I appreciated everything! The ipod from Lindsey and Hans has already helped me with choreography. I got a $25 itunes card and got some great music already. I got a new Bible (which I needed very much), books, clothes, car things from Jess and Jen (which was what I also needed), and much more. I missed my roommates a lot all through the break. Even though I loved being able to relax and hang with some old friends, I am ready for school to start back up tomorrow.

It was nice to come back to my apartment. I was happy to sleep in a bed again. haha :)
