Hey y’all! How is everyone doing? I am currently sick so I decided to opt out of school today to rest. (Sidenote: I started writing this on Monday, it’s Wednesday now but I’m still home sick. Okay well I’m a failure so it’s now Thursday)  This week was absolutely crazy for me.  On Tuesday I took the ACT which actually wasn’t too bad, I think I did decent but not great. I guess we’ll see when I get my scores back.

On Wednesday I had interviews for this surgical technology program. Basically its really hard to get into and I get my letter saying if I got in or not at the end of March. In the beginning 80 people applied and we all took some tests, from that they took 40 for interviews. The interview itself lasted 4 hours, it was crazy. I ended up being in the last bunch of people along with Ryann, and we actually made some new friends! All in all, even if I didn’t get in, it was a good experience.

On Friday for our pre-prom date thing we went to Airborne which is a trampoline place, and it was super fun! The boys tried the American Ninja Warrior thing and at first Bex’s bf got the farthest but of course my date (who for anonymity reasons we’ll call Lewis, like C.S. Lewis…) had to one -up him because that’s just what best friends do xD  But they have a bunch of like obstacle rope stuff and trampolines you can jump off of into foam pits so it pretty legit. After that we went to dinner at this pizza place and then to one of the kids in our group houses to play games. We played ping pong and then one of my favorite card games Scum. I was Queen until the very end when Lewis beat me, but most of the time all of us were throwing M&M’s and making fun of each other.

Saturday was kind of crazy because my grandma was hemming my dress last minute. My young women’s leader and her little sister did my hair super cool and put baby’s breath in it. Ryann did my makeup because I’m helpless but it all turned out. Of course my mom insisted on taking a few pictures and then we were off.

Once we were with the whole gang, we drove up to the capitol to take some pictures and then ate dinner at this restaurant called The Garden which is at the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It was basically pretty fancy with a great view of the city and mainly the temple.


The dance itself which was in the capitol was great! Everybody my group was surprised that I knew all of the songs (apparently none of them grew up where I did. 2000’s trash hip hop was it back then) It was great to see everyone looking super hot in all of their fancy attire and to just dance around. On the very last song I almost kissed Lewis but like nope, the song ended plus my stomach had like a tornado in it.

After the dance we went back to Lewis’ house and on the way home we had a great conversation about bodies falling out of the back of a hearse on the highway, it was pretty funny. Once we got there we had brownies and ice cream with caramel and it was amazing. I also learned that Lewis has a bird named Yoshi that killed the other one… Lastly we played a card game called Exploding Kittens and I died about a million times.

Okay this has taken me forever to write so I am going to end it here.

I Have A Dilemma, and I Need Your Help

Hey y’all. So I have a dilemma, well two actually but we’ll get there.

First off, tonight I was playing church ball as usual and my back kept getting ran into so it hurt obviously. I thought I would be fine, but apparently I wasn’t because I got hit one more time and I was automatically on the floor bawling my eyes out. Don’t you just love crying in front of people? So now I’m stuck in bed praying that it doesn’t stay this way and reverse literally everything that has been cured after a year and a half of being in pain. And my dad was apparently calling me a wuss or whatever, so that was great. Yay for supportive parents. At least my brother is a sweetheart though, he put my shoes on for me, helped me put my warm-ups on over my shorts,and helped me get into the truck. A lady in the ward got me ice too which was very nice. Man I’m so bitter right now it’s kind of funny, I’m actually laughing.

Anyways, besides that totally chill and not frustrating thing, I have a concurrent (college) political science project due on Saturday that I completely forgot about. Long story short, I have a survey thing that I need people to take and I thought who better than the blogging peeps? So can you PLEASE take the survey it will take like 2 minutes max.

I’m begging you. Like, literally begging you. If you do it I will love you forever and ever, I really will.

The Ultimate Blogging Ship 

Hey y’all! So earlier today I was talking to Inf, and we have this ship name Infspen  (Its purely magical, not romantic btw) and I was just thinking about who you all ship in the blogging world.

So, we’re going you find out. You’ll all comment as many ships as you want and then we’ll take a vote and see who the Ultimate Blogging Ship is (except Infspen because like we’re #1, so got to keep this fair and all)

You can include us the creators, yourself, or any other bloggers you know.

And you guys should already know this is all fun games so don’t be nervous to comment people or anything because that’d be LAME.

I’m counting on you guys to comment, don’t be a silent reader, this won’t work if you don’t! I know you all have an idea of who you’d want to ship, don’t lie to me. I can smell lies.


Sidenote: The featured image is one of the models we have in my medical anatomy. The picture was just too good to not post….

Poems, Short Stories, or a Novel?

Hey y’all! So I’ve really been wanting to write lately, but I’ve kind of been on the fence of WHAT to write. So I’m asking you guys, obviously.

Should I write more poems, short stories, or a novel?  Or are there 2 you would like to see from me? All 3?

I want to know what YOU want to read. Please comment, thank you!

What Do You Want To Know About Me?

Hey y’all!  I had a lot of fun at Lauren’s birthday party yesterday. I was playing football (American football) Monkey in the middle style, and while I was rushing Ryann I not only got grass stains on my pants, but also punched her thigh. Which is basically steel, and I can barely move 2 of my fingers now… OH! And I’m going to say thank you on their behalf, for all of the birthday wishes they got yesterday!

Now onto the post,

So below I am going to list different situations that have happened in my life, and in the comments you guys will vote for which story you want to hear!

Also, if you have another idea of a story you want to hear, comment that and I’ll add it to the list!

Here’s what I can think of:

  • First bone I broke
  • When Lauren’s neighbors dog ran away
  • How me (and my family) met our closest friends
  • When my ferret went missing while we were camping
  • My first kiss


Make sure to let me know which one you want to hear in the comments! Love you all, and have an awesome day! -Aspen AKA The Author
