Guess who was in town!! My whole family! It was great! That only ever happens around Christmas but this Halloween was a total bonus! I love them. I really feel so blessed to be related to them. They are all so smart and hardworking. I really admire that. My family is full of crazy, loud, dominant personalities but we manage to make it work. I like how loud and quirky we are. It's adorable.
This is Jamie and Sam on Halloween.
We're pretty freeeeeakin' amazing.
This would be Jamie and Sam loving little Zara.
She's a doll. Her eyes blow me away.
We love when we get to see Zara.
Emily is a stud!
We really are friends, despite her face in this picture.
Today something wonderful happened. I was called up by an old Walden parent and she wants to hire me to tutor two of her kids once a week! I know it won't be a lot of money but I am ecstatic just to be working with some of the kids I love again! Teaching is without a doubt a huge passion of mine and I am so excited that I have been provided with this opportunity. I am starting tomorrow which means I don't have time to prep anything but I will be able to get a feel for what these kids need and where they are struggling. FREGGIN A! I'm so stoked! Yay yay yay yay yay!!
In other news, I found a super old picture of when I attempted to model for a girl I went to high school with. She was doing a project on the 7 deadly sins. I was slothfulness. When I see it I feel like I'm a member on America's Next Top Model but their pictures are obviously much much better. Anyways, here's the picture I found:
'Ello ladies and gents. I've had some pretty swell adventures the last few days. I thought I should document somewhere and well, why not just put it on the blog right? I've met some amazing people this year and we've been able to do a lot together. My favorite activity in the last week or so was visiting the Abandoned Provo Prison aka The Old Ironton Jail. Didn't know it existed? Me too, and I've been here for years. I guess it opened in '76 and the closed in '97 due to bed shortage and everyone who was there moved down to Spanish Fork when that facility was built and there was no longer a need for the one in Provo. Anyways, it's supposedly haunted because they've executed people there. There is an electric chair and a lethal injection table. Trippppppy stuff. Someone in my ward has been there before and told a friend about it who decided to get a group together and go in the middle of the night so I after hearing about it I had to go. There is something about sneaking around that still appeals to the rebel in me. When we got there we had to sneak through a hole in the fence and meander our way around the building to try to find a way in. While we were wondering around one of the girls in our group said she saw something inside and I replied saying that she was just psyching herself out, but of course, right as I said that we heard something fall off the building which made me cringe and feel pretty hypocritical. Someone pointed out that the noise came from around the corner so we had to investigate. As we looked around the corner there was a high pitch scream coming from the building so we all ran away as fast as we could screaming for our life. I wholeheartedly believe in demonic spirits and possessions so I was beyond freaked out. As we were running I literally peed my pants due to how scared I was. As far as I know no one in our group has been visited by any spirits since we went there. I'd call that a success.
