happenings of alli

a certain someone, whose name will not be mentioned (cough cough), has been wanting me to post something new. i honestly don't have anything new to report, but i'm not going to lie when i say that i'm not ready to be done with school and to be out of here...because i am! i love this school and i love this town, i'm just ready to be home. i honestly don't think i could be here year round. i would go insane! too many hormones running around.
good news is is that time is running out for me to leave for europe. i leave april 26. i still can not believe that i'm going. i have always dreamt of going and now i get to live that dream. it's not a dream anymore, but a reality. i'm feeling a little bit of pressure concerning classes and packing and what not. i can't complain too much because...I AM GOING TO EUROPE!!! ahh!
last day of classes is on monday and then finals begin wednesday. yay!...not. i can't believe that i will be a junior in a week. i'm halfway through college. i always knew time would go by fast, but still! i said that after my freshman year and i'm saying it again. you don't know much time flies by until you're living it. it applies to all areas of life. good news with school is that i'm moving towards majoring in child development. i am sick of getting rude looks from people when i say i don't know what i'm majoring in and i'm in my second year. it's a hard decision and it's been one of the toughest decisions i have had to make.
well that's all from the happenings of alli...are you happy?

don't worry; be happy!

for the past couple of days i have been so happy. i don't know why, but i am just so happy. i'm happy that this semester ends in one month; i'm going to europe in a month and a half; i love school and life; and i really like this guy. i go about my day wanting to smile wherever i go (that might look a little weird on campus though). the weather is so beautiful it makes me even happier. i don't know why - it baffles me. i'm so happy to be here and so happy with everything that's going on in my life right now. i hope you enjoy this picture as much as this guy does. haha i thought it was really funny and i couldn't help but post it. i found this other picture of a smiling goat that i was going to put up, but i like this one better. last week at stake conference, elder hammond said that we shouldn't worry - everything turns out in the end. look at joseph smith - everything turns out in the end. don't worry - be happy! i hope your lives are filled with happiness each and every day. why wouldn't you be happy? there are so many wonderful things that we each have in our lives. :)
