Deaf Awareness Week

Deaf Awareness Week is really in September, but my school teacher is doing it this upcoming week, so I will too!

To advertise Deaf Awareness at school, we are making posters as a class and also advertising on the morning announcements with trivia questions!
This next week, I will do the same on my blog. The first question will be on Monday morning!

But for now, this is a great article I found about the Winter Deaflympics which will be in Slovakia, Russia in 2011.

Stay tuned this week for more fascinating information into the Deaf world!!

singing telegrams

so at our high school we have this thing called singing telegrams. it's when any group any size (but not too big) can get together and audition to go around and sing to people for valetines day. it's a great fundraiser idea!
so this year, a few of jazz choir people decided to get together and sing some songs. so we auditioned and made it! so we went around today and sang to people because valetines day was sunday and we had school off the whole next week. only a few people bought us cause they didn't know about us but it was super fun! we went around to our friends classrooms and sang to them even if they didn't buy us.
we also went to my little brothers classroom and i swear he is gonna beat me up when he comes back from school but i just couldn't resist singing love songs to him :)
this is our school commercial for us (that they never played!! another reason why nobody bought us) :
(and i know my hair is super goofy, it was having a bad day)

BYU it is!!!

So i'll be using all of you (bryan and katie especially) for class, housing, meal recommendations in the near future.

What made my final decision was this: I just could not see myself attending Utah State. It was the weirdest thing. I was trying to picture myself at both schools to see which one I liked better and I just could not see myself going to Utah State. And it's not that I forgot what it looked like or anything.

So I guess maybe i'm supposed to go to BYU!

BUT if I don't like BYU or something after my first year, i'll consider transferring to Utah State :)

So now the real difficult part begins. Here are some pros and cons of both school I am struggling between:


Pros: excellent nursing program (if I got in), family surrounding me, friends I know who are already there and who I know are going there, great school, cute mormon boys

Cons: no scholarships (that I know of), following the standard mormon traditions :)

Utah State

Pros: scholarships adding up to about $16,400 for tuition and housing, somewhere between $2000 and $2500 in cash to spend (because of scholarships), get to know new people, the aggie ice cream, good nursing program through Weber State, also has a great education program if I wanted to go into teaching, cute mormon and non-mormon boys

Cons: don't know anybody (I mean, I know a few people, relatives and some friends but nobody close you know?), cold weather, the "typical" college campus (i.e. drinking, smoking...yadda yadda)

Any suggestions or other pros and cons for either school??

snow storm of 2010

one word: WOW
it all started the week of february 8th. we already initially had no school on monday so we had school on tuesday. that night, the first hint of snow came so school was canceled for wednesday. thursday was back to school but the snow started around 4:00 canceling all after-school activities. later that night we found out school was canceled friday as well. what a great weekend!
now friday was the mega day. throughout the entire day we accumulated around 30 inches and on into saturday it continued.
that weekend was gloriously filled with food and movies and tv. approximately 10 hours total of tv/movie time was accomplished for those few days.
saturday we found out that they were already canceling school on monday and tuesday because of the extreme amounts of snowfall.
tuesday we found out that they were canceling school for the rest of the week because of the continuous wind and snowfall. just imagine my ecstatic-ness!!!
there is no school on monday because of presidents day and we are expected to get around 2 to 4 inches on top of the ice and snow we already have. no school tuesday??? :)
