january 25

this past weekend i went to the social work opening social. this video is of brother hay playing the drums. he is the most reserved man in the social work department. i'm surprised he actually played the drums. it was a nice little show for the evening. the social was held at bro. mcdonnell's house (my policies teacher) - the paint color in their living room is the exact same color on the walls of the basement at the house (aka toast). random! it was really fun to meet people who are in the program already - so much fun! i was there for about 4 hours! haha we played ping pong, ate, super mario brothers, ate, and had a blast. sorry to be short in explaining, but that's it in a nutshell...


these are some pictures from this past weekend events - i went to my fhe brother's apt: jefferson (right column middle picture) made an italian dish, and we watched a movie. delicious dinner. i put my flirt on with stuart (love the name) - we sat next to each other during the movie and he seems interested. he's from spokane, washington; majoring in business but most likely english; he wants to get his law degree from gonzaga; 10 kids in his family (including him) - 6 sisters and 3 brothers - he's the third in the line. his picture is in the middle of the collage and then right below it with me. :) i am definitely interested and the feeling seems to be mutual. if you want more details, you'll have to give me a SOS: stewart has an mc on stuart

you better be happy...

Sorry for the long string of pics, but I don't know of any easier way to add pictures. Any ideas? Throw them my way - literally. haha The reason I say "you better be happy" is because I have done at least 3 new updates within the past couple of days - trying to make up for the month and a half that I didn't update my blog. So here you go - here are a few pictures from this past weekend. Enjoy!

my hair

Here are some pictures of my new hair - now it's brown/red though. I got it cut a little less than a week ago: more severe a line and bangs. Yay. I love it though - no hair on my neck. Shauna and I agree that it feels good not feeling hair on your neck. I am a true Stewart. In other news...I hung out with Jameson last night. He is the guy I hung out with for like a week before I left on the Europe tour. We just hung out and talked at my apt. It was goot to see him and catch up. He's really cute. hehe He is calling me today - maybe tonight? haha Who knows...Yes! I'm doing good - two updates in the last couple of days. Go me!

I hope you will forgive me for taking some time in updating my blog - the internet at my apt. complex is having some issues. Putting excuses aside I am working on posting an album from AZ, so I am trying. Updating my life...I am back in the swing of classs and loving them. I am take Social Work Practice 1 - individual (I think there are a couple that I have to take), values and ethics, Old Testament (spiritual Brian Regan = my professor), Abnormal Psychology, theories, and policies. It is quite the load of classes, but I love my teachers and love the class. I love the department here - all of the professors are amazing. Love it!

For those of you who didn't know, I tried out for a vocal fireside group, but didn't make it. I got a callback which was exciting, but oh and well. I was a little bummed when I found out about it, but then something exciting and uplifting happened later that day. The SW student council were having elections for my class (first year students). People can only vote for people in their class. I decided to go, but wasn't planning on running. I had a few thoughts roaming around in my head if I decided to run. When I got there the president, vp, someone from the activities committee, a girl (Brittney) from my classes, and me were the only ones there. Brittney and I were the only two from our class. We both weren't planning on running, but had thought about it. Because of the lack of people, she and I automatically got on board for student council. Yay! I was so excited! :) That made my day - who needs that vocal fireside group. haha I took that as a blessing in disguise - I will be able to get so involved with the SW program (planning service activities and socials). All in all I am glad I didn't make it into that vocal group - blessing in disguise. I have my first meeting next Wednesday and our opening social is next Friday.
Along the SW lines...come February 28-29, I will be going to SLC for a humanitarian aid service "expidition" with 45 other SW students and some advisors. I am so excited! We will be serving in homeless shelters in downtown SLC near Pioneer Square, eat with the homeless people, take a tour of the conference center, maybe see a movie there. On Friday we will be split into groups to either work in the bishop's storehouse, bakery, cheese factory, DI, or the cannery. I am so excited that I was able to sign up. It will be such a neat, hands on experience for me. Yay.
There - I think I have updated you on all that's been happening here in the Iceburg...I mean Rexburg. haha That's the happenings of Ms. Alli...
