Today was Barack Obama's inauguration day and it was really cool. I didn't actually get to SEE the speech since Utah is un-democratic or something and they didn't close school or open it late or anything like they did in Maryland. But I saw the part where Bush flew away in his little helicopter. It was cool, everyone was staring at the TV in the Wilk. I'm sort of mad that I wasn't in Maryland today though. That would have been cool. But the speech he gave was moving and totally inspiring, and if he lives up to what he wants to make with the country than it will be totally great and America will be what it is supposed to be. I liked his bit about the forefathers, because it seems like America was totally great back in those days, everyone was proud of their country and it held so much promise. So hopefully Obama can make it like that again. Or at least fix America's whole pollution thing and turn it into a less wasteful nation. We'll see what happens. I hope he does a great job.
In other news, I think I lost my green beret and I'm very upset. It was a great hat and I have no idea where the heck it could be. I checked lost and found and its nowhere. I also lost one of my pink gloves. Its SO obnoxious. I'm going to go up there and check again. I WANT MY BERET!!!!!!
Ah time for dinner and then the longest/latest class of my life.

Well, I am in figure drawing class right now and to tell you the truth it is kind of demoralizing. I do feel like I am getting better at drawing people though. Just that my getting better feels like its worse than everyone else's. But I am going to try to get better. Now I am motivated to practice even more. Anyway, I think I am going to write a letter to Disney and ask for advice, because I need all the help I can get. So, here goes nothing I guess.

We watched this in my intro to film class
I think its hilarious in a really stupid-funny way. Anyway, today was better than yesterday, I got my schedule sorted out and I dropped American Heritage in favor of French so that I could take figure drawing which looks to be really good, even though it goes from 7-10 AT NIGHT! Oh well, I don't mind. I AM a night owl after all. I need to buy a $200 French book and some art supplies, which sucks. I need to find the nearest art supply place, because I hear the BYU bookstore rips you off. And before thursday too.

So here is what went down on the first day of class, and maybe you'll see why I am stressed.
One of my lymph nodes is swollen and is really irritating and hurts and is poky feeling in my throat and I dislike that feeling.
I am having some serious altitude sickness, My head has been hurting all day, and I feel a difference in the air from the way it was back home in Maryland. I dunno It is harder to breathe here for me. I hope I don't develop like, asthma or something. Anyway, I've felt sickish all day because of the sore throat and the altitude sickness.
I had to wake up at like 7:45 to get ready for my class at 9- Social dance, which doesn't look like it is going to be bad. Except I need new shoes and I can't really find anything that I like- the ones from target I did like don't come in my size, and the only ones that are left are these lame-o yellow ones and I don't really wear that much yellow. Especially in winter. So I went on amazon.com and will probably get these:
I am just going to wait for my mom to approve or whatever and then I will buy them. The heel is short enough and wide enough that I guess they will be fine, and they are more versatile as far as matching go.
Then I had an hour between classes so I went to the bookstore , and bought a few books for my classes,which were over 200 dollars! Ah that burns me up inside. Anyway I was like dying the whole time because I had my huge coat on since it was cold out, and my head was killing me. and everything. After that I went out to see which building my french class would be in and I wandered around a bit until...
American Heritage Class! that class looks like it will be cool. The teacher seems pretty cool and everything so thats good. I dunno I hear that he is a good teacher but his tests are killer. We'll see. I am good at remembering facts, so maybe I'll do ok...
Then was french. The teacher is young and everything so thats cool, but it seems like its going to be hard. I am having flashbacks of my middle school days with french and they were not pleasant. I will try harder in this class and I vow to work on rosetta stone 30 mins-1 Hour each day. We'll see how that works out.
Then Book of Mormon. I don't know about this one since the teacher didn't even show up. A TA told us about the class. So there you have it
So why am I stresses you ask? WELL, All the kids in the animation major were like "oh you really need to take figure drawing" that is a problem for me at the present time because: I don't have room in my schedule to fit this 3 credit hour class! That means I either have to drop American Heritage, or French, and I don't know which one to do! AH! Stressful! BUT this girl in my animation class told me she tried to add figure drawing earlier, and t was like totally full! People have been waiting on this class since like the beginning of LAST SEMESTER!
I'm going to try and add it, but I am not really hopeful at this point. I'll think of something... I could always teach myself figure drawing I guess... ah, I need a break!

Ah I am back in the dorms, And I really don't want to be. School stinks. I had fun over vacation, and I am not looking forward to this whole school thing. Being home gave me some hindsight about BYU and It made me wonder what I thought was so fun about this place. The air is too dry. I forgot my face lotion. you can do the math. I don't think anyone really missed me either, because did anyone write on my facebook wall saying how much they missed me like they did with everyone else? No! well no one except my home friends. Grr. Well I see how it is everyone! Now I do not even feel bad for getting lame christmas presents. Ah Clearly I am bitter about this whole being back at school thing. BYU is a good school and everything, I just didn't get to see enough of my home friends to be satisfied.
Ah, I am so not looking forward to the next four months at this point. Maybe monday will be better...
