College is Not the Place to Go for Ideas

I am in college.
I have been in college for a semester and a half altogether now, but it has not been until this semester that I’ve finally understood people who say, “I LOVE COLLEGE!!” because I do too! This semester has been fantastic and I have some of the greatest roommates on the planet. The amazing thing about all of us though? Each girl is completely different from the next and it doesn’t get in the way! In fact, I may be so bold as to say that’s part of the reason we love each other so much.
Dannielle is this adorable, gorgeous blonde girl from Utah that loves people immediately and knows everyone. She’s the kind of girl that is happy ALL THE TIME but in the best way possible. She doesn’t impose her joy upon you, it’s just infecting. Plus, she’s an amazing dancer and super random and crazy. Also, in a small world moment, she can ride a unicycle too! Honestly, what are the odds that the only other girl I've ever met that can ride a unicycle would end up being my roommate?? Its fantastiiic!
April, her roommate, is hilarious and loves basketball and cop shows. She’s from Oregon and she’s completely down to earth, and is the person that everyone goes to for advice. She also has an extreme infinity for black men which I think is wonderful :) haha!
Peyton, is possibly the sweetest person alive. She’s completely drama free which is definitely a plus in my book. When I say she’s a complete sweetheart I mean it in the sense that she see’s the best in everyone, but she knows how to crack a joke, even if she doesn’t mean it. Also, she’s from Southern Virginia and has the cutest accent ever. Window ---> Winda. Cute. As. A. Button.
Sarah is Peyton’s roommate and is sarcastic, funny and super little but I love her and she’s got an awesome story. She lived in Turkey for a couple years but has since moved back to Oregon and has just done some pretty sweet things. She’s also a pretty great guitar player and I love jamming with her.
Last but not least, Karen! She is my room roommate and she’s sooo funny. She too is from Oregon, she’s an art major and loves video games (she’s going into gaming animation), Japan and everything to do with it and the word “freaking”. I love her, she’s really easy to get along with. To quote her, “what the heck ever man!” Oh! also an RM, sweet right?

The “Hoes of 105” so called by April have had some rockin adventures already. We have trekked around the sand dunes, shopped, cooked together, made almost weekly runs to G's Dairy and had a random, freestyle jam session with mustaches on, got horked and built the most epic fort that has ever hit the apartments of Rexburg! And that my friends, is not a joke.

All in all, this semester is adding up to be amazazing. And that's a fact.


  1. We know you love college, and we do too. What we want to hear about is the dating life in Rexburg. You're only a term and a half in, but we're curious. None of us have ever attended BYU-I.

  2. Haha well, the dating life is certainly different for everyone you ask. I don't go on many dates which is fine by me! but, my roommate has probably a date a week. She's the adorable blonde one holding up the unicycle. I think there are certain types of people that guys here are looking for and she is most definitely that type, which is GREAT! haha But, I'm not sure what you're looking for specifically. Do you want to know about MY dating life? or dating life in general?

  3. Those forts look like a blast :-)

  4. They were! The pictures do not even do them justice
