School + Classes + Homework = LIFE

Eric and I are now two weeks into the new school year here at BYU, going on to the third. We both have our share of difficult classes that are time consuming as well. However, after spending all day at campus going to classes and then going to work, I love nothing more then to come home to the man I love. Of course, the work isn't always done and most nights there's still a pile of homework to do, but for some reason it always makes the work load seem better after a wonderful dinner made by Eric and him just being there. I must admit that I exaggerated (as I often do) in that our lives don't only include school. We make an effort to keep the fun in it. We are both on intermual soccer teams this fall and are so excited for it, we have season sport tickets to the football games (Go BYU!), and we just resently attended India fest at the Muslim temple in Spanish Fork (I learned that I'm not a huge fan of food from india, or at least the stuff they had there).
On another note, something that is another change in the direction in my life other then recently getting married, is that I am switching my major from Anthroplogy! The more classes I've taken I started to realize that I didn't care for the way anthropolgists think, no offense to any out there, but they can be so wrapped up in the views which only they believe or have studied from a culture. Plus all this time of people asking me what I want to do with that major, I've come to find out that there really isn't to must to do with that. At least nothing that really interested me and would be a set career. I guess when I would tell people I was majoring into Antropology and I got looks of "Why are you going into to that?" they really new something I didn't and it wasn't for me. However, I'm not really giving up the idea of it altogether, I'm simple closing in on a more direct subject. Rather then anaylizing a culture as a whole, I want to major in psychology and anaylize people and see why they do the things they do. Of course, like most college students that is subject to change at any given moment, but I'm really hoping this is it. In dropping my anthropology classes I've added Human development which I really enjoy.
Eric and I are taking a marriage and family religion class together and besides the bonus of getting to see him during the day of school, I think it is going to be a really insitful class and help us strengthen our relationship. Something that our professor said I think both of us really liked was, don't get caught up in the things you do know from the things you don't know. A lot of us, me especially, see everything we have to do to maybe graduate or get through a class or whatever and think how are we going to do this?! However, if we know whatever we have to do will get us on the path to where we are suppose to go, the Lord will help us through it. Our professor also said that to many times we have the attitude of if I can just get through something I can be happy. For me it was when we finally graduate and get on our feet with a steady job and family, then life will be really good. But he told us to enjpy our life now and be happy with it now. I really liked that and it has helped my look at my life now and really enjoy it, even though we aren't the wealthiest, or have a big home, or that spend most of our days at school, I love it!

A Man of Many Talents

Ok, so the point of this post is not to praise my husband to win brownie points or get out of doing the dishes, but just to show how much you can learn about a person from living with them for a month. And may I mention that today is exactly one month since we were married!
This last month has been a huge learning experience for both of us and I think we are slowly starting to get a hang of this whole "married" thing. For example, I've learned that if you decide to wake up at 5:30 in the morning to make breakfast for your husband before he goes to work, don't turn on a gas stove while holding an egg. The result: the igniting of the flame on the stove will startle you and the egg in your hand will go flying in the air and land with a "splat" on your new kitchen rug. I've also learned not to lay even a finger on a hanging shelf in an attic apartment with weak walls, because it results in the entire shelf falling along with everything on it and flour all over the kitchen floor. (Just as a side note, even through all my "in the kitchen" mishaps our kitchen is quite clean) Anyway, through all my learning experiences, Eric has stepped up to his role as Super Husband and is the first to cleaning up my messes physically and emotionally. Also, over the last month he has unveiled even more talents to add to the list of his list of already many talents...
After a long day at work of trying to figure out computer type things, which is most definitely NOT my area of expertise and exhausted from working out (which was my stab at trying to get back in the routine of going to the gym daily) I came home racking my brain of what to make for dinner...something that was quite and easy. Low and behold, Eric had dinner ready and waiting and not just one of those box dinners mind you, but homemade Lasagna! Even I can put down some pride and admit that that differently passed up my Cheesy Green bean Casserole (my first casserole) that I made the week before.
So the conclusion of all of this is, I was very blessed to marry a man of many talents and I am so glad that he is the guy that I get to come home to after a long day and be with. After a month of being married we are still madly in love with each other and life couldn't be better!
