I realized

I talk to myself.
Didn't I was about 10 mins into work in the phone room and I was getting everything situated, I then paused for a second and I looked at Andria and realized I had just had an ENTIRE conversation with myself. Not a back and forth actual conversation, just one of those 'saying everything that was going through my head' conversations.
So, world, I'm sorry I have no filter and I do not think before I speak. It's a good thing I don't have horrific thoughts, or I probably wouldn't have any friends.
My thoughts are always on my face and generally spoken aloud.
Sometimes it's a problem.


I can't help it

I'm a sucker for cliche, cheesey things, such as this. I eat it up.


P.S. I really want to learn how to play racquetball P.S.S. If you're ever extremely bored at work (like me) go to freerice.com. You can answer different questions like vocab or math or whatever suits your fancy and for every question you answer correctly 10 grains of rice are donated.

Against All Odds

So, I'm going on my 3rd year in Utah and at BYU.
I have not given a talk in Sacrament meeting yet.
I'm not quite sure what this means, but I kind of like it.
However, as I was sitting in my new ward on Sunday, I was looking around and realized how small it is. I then started getting flushed and really hot thinking about how my chances of giving a talk just multiplied....then I started feeling really nauseous. It's been nice not having spoken since I was about 14...literally it has been about 6 years since I have spoken in church, but I think now, since it has been so long, that my nerves just won't be able to handle it. So, for a couple different reasons, I am crossing my fingers not to be asked to speak in church.
That's just a thought I had. And if anyone is reading this and is in my ward, don't suggest anything to any of the ward leaders, because I really want to go under the radar and make it through BYU w/o having given a talk.
World record breaker? I think I can make it!


Thanks Momma!

My mom sent me these wall stickers for our apartment. They are amazing. I still have another one that we have not put up because we have a couple other elements to factor into putting them up, but here are the ones so far that we've hung: If anyone is interested in any wall-stickers feel free to e-mail my mom about ordering some kastolworthy@yahoo.com



I have an obsession.
I have been in Utah for 3 weeks and in those 3weeks my nails have been
GREEN, ORANGE, PINK, and as of last night PURPLE.
N.Y.C. nail polish is my favorite. They are $.99 and the nailpolish goes on well, but chips easily...which I like because I like changing colors all the time, so it works out nicely.

Here it is folks...the newest hottest thing in the music scene. xoxo


Beatles Done Better?

Kris and Ty came together over me.

The real deal is tonight @ 7. So excited.




First and foremost: This is post #160...yeah who would've ever thought I'd keep blogging to that many? K I just wanted to give everyone an update on my weekend. I am slowly, but surely breaking my way back into a social scene...took long enough! I've been here for almost 3 weeks! (WHOA!) Friday night I went to Kristin's work party and ate all sorts of delicious (free) food! YUM, the price made it even yummier! Thanks hhp! Who would've thought Dayne came and with the broken collarbone and all. Due to his handicaps I did cut his steak for him.
(again PLEASE ignore my scary windblown hair)
This morning I got up and went and played soccer...and said a big HELLO to being out of shape... Then Dani and I ran looots of errands, thanks UTA for the great transportation! We did some returns to the mall a very EXPENSIVE trip to Walmart and then pit stopped @ my apt. and then walked over to smiths for some other important food items! I've got spinach, tilapia, green beans and chicken in the freezer right now, who woulda thought! YUM!
And I ran into my dear friend Claire. Who shaved her head 2 weeks ago.


Passing Time

So, I'm at work and have a lot of free time on my hands because I don't have homework to work on. I decided that I'm going to work on recipes for my cookbook between phone calls! I've been looking at a website with some good [easy] recipes and thought I should start writing them down to add to my recipe book!
I'm so excited.



I've been slacking on my blogging and I know it's killing all my readers....
I think I am the most blessed person alive. From Sunday night through Friday afternoon it was the most overwhelming week of my life. But thanks to many prayers on my behalf from family and whoever else, I survived! I had a really bad feeling about living in the Pink House and though we still had the option to live there, I knew we weren't supposed to. I rode my bike up and down and in and out of provo and made, oh, probably a thousand phone calls in a week. I cried lots and then some more. I felt so overwhelmed. Every contract that we could have taken and worked out didn't feel right. I was getting frustrated with my internal battle between my feelings and my common sense.
Feelings: None of the available spot contracts felt right.
Common Sense: It was so last minute I needed to grab the spots I could.
I spent every waking moment on craigslist. Syd was making countless phonecalls and we were both coming up with nothing. Then she found this awesome deal on facebook for a master bed and bath for $400...we both sent a message to the girl who posted the spot asking if we could share it (we had tried countless similar situations that never worked). Thursday we get an e-mail from the girl that we could split it and for me to call her to set up a time to come see the place. it's down on 200 N so I was a little hesitant to the distance when winter hits, but figured it's definitely worth looking at. Friday at 6 Ty drove me down and I laughed so hard when he dropped me off @ my cousin Keith's old apartment complex! I met with the husband and wife who are both so nice. The husband's sister and her friend are the other 2 roomates living in the condo. The condo was amazing, it's an awesome complex near bus stops for just about every bus. Blessing? Yes! They tell me they have other applicants, but they'll let me know who they chose to lease the condo to. Friday night they texted me and told me they liked me and would love for Syd and I to live there...needless to say all of Smith's was soon aware of my new living situation. When I called Sydney I think she scrame for 20 minutes with the same decibels of a fire engine.
It's just the greatest miracle. I can't express to anyone my gratitude with words. The extremes from last weeks' feelings to this weeks are immeasurable. It's like what my mom's said, "You never realize how great it is to be healthy til you get a good stomach ache."
That's truer than true!
SO, what have I been doing between tearful phone calls with Dad and bike rides around town? Well, let me tell you!
I'm so happy that Kristin transferred to Provo! We've had a lot of fun together and she has been letting me tag along with her everywhere! I've gone to her ward, her ward activities and her FHE.
Last week we had a civil war w/ water balloons. I got hit in the stomach and it left me a bruise. It was totally worth it; we won!
Last night we had a similar fight, but it also included shaving cream, whipped cream, and flour...yeah it was as messy as it sounds. And yes, I realized last night I have worn Tie Dye to everyone of Kristin's ward activities that I've needed to dress for mess.
I've taken a couple walmart trips on the bus. The most recent trip I took Kristin joined me. She got a bike! She could hardly wait to ride it, however, Saturday afternoon she had work and I had a date. So, when I got back around midnight Kristin and I went on a bike ride to the Chevron by the stadium and put air in her tires! It was a great bikeride. I slept really well that night.
We've played frisbee on Monday nights, I'm not very good but it's fun exercise.
My knee is the only one complaining!
We're buying tickets tomorrow for the World Cup prelim game that's going to be on Sept. 5 in Sandy between the US and El Salvador! Don't worry, we're not missing the OK game, we're going over to a guys house somewhere up near salt lake to watch the football game after the soccer game. Can't wait.
USA! USA! USA! Football tickets went on sale yesterday, but I don't have internet at my apartment right now, so I could only get on to buy my tickets at work. It wasn't working for me, but I couldn't call the helpline because I was working. So, this morning I called and got help and then bought my all sports pass! hoorah! Go Cougs!
And, last but CERTAINLY not least, I moved into my new apartment on Sunday (thanks Keith, oh and thanks to Ty I had moved from the Pink House 2 mondays ago over to Dani's) and they left 2 tv's in the apartment (WHOA!). Well, anyway, I haven't been at my apartment much since I've moved in, but all I can say is I LOVE SHARK WEEK!
