What is my deal? This year has been a non stop health problems!
I had this rash that I noticed a week ago. I thought it was just dry skin or hives but it continued to be there. I went to the doctor today and found out that I have pityriasis rosea! Do not worry it is not contagious it just looks disgusting. I also had a question about my sinus problem and new chesty cough. The doctor informed me that I have chronic sinus problems due to allergies and the cough is just caused by the dripping into my throat. I know it is a lot of information and really gross but it is just my luck this year I guess. Lets just see what other kind of sicknesses I can get this year. haha! I am going to get better though.

I decided not to go to the midnight showing. I went the next evening with my mother. I enjoyed the movie. I thought that there were a lot of pros and cons.
I thought Bella was perfect for the role. She was exactly who I imagined. She was beautiful in a way that every boy noticed but she did not believe. She was smart, uncoordinated, quiet, and kind. She was brave and mature. I was all around impressed with her.
Edward was amazing. Like most I was skeptical to how you could bring this beautiful fantasy to life but they did it. He was charming, kind, and awkward. You could tell he was torn between loving her, ruining his family, and hurting her. I always imagined their love to be awkward with a lot of sexual tension.
The one thing i did not like about their relationship in the movie was the lack of sexual tension and courting. In the book she is obsessed with him and he disapears from time to time in the begining. She was depressed whenever he was gone. They missed the scene filled with the most awkward sexual tension during the movie in biology. I felt like the relationship did not build the same way it was built in the book. He came to her room a lot more in the book. I thought it was strange that there was only one kissing scene.I also thought that they missed a lot of basic courting that was missed.
I think they did a good job with the budget and am already planning to see it again. I know I am pathetic.

It is so easy to look at other people and think that their life is perfect. I have realized a lot lately that nobody's life is perfect. Everyone has problems. I am happy with my life. I have decided that my life may not be perfect but it is perfect right now for me. I have been blessed a lot. I am not going to dwell on things that I do not have. I am going to focus on all the great things that I do have!1

You can pass this post if you would like because it is a bit of a pitty party post. I know that coming home was the right thing to do. I can already tell a huge difference in my health. I do not have a sinus infection, or a virus any more. My back does not hurt constantly anymore. I feel rested and relaxed. I have not taken the Soma's in over a week. I have hardly taken any pain relievers as well. I know that I am healing from this injury faster than I would if I was up at school. BUT I miss my friends and family.
I miss my friends from my freshman year. They are so fun and always keep me on my toes. We are always there for each other. We may not hang out as much as we used to because we are all so busy but we are friends for life.
I miss my roommates. They are all so kind, nice, smart, funny, loving, beautiful, spiritual, clean, healthy,and just amazing. I cannot wait to be up there living with them again.
I miss my sister and cousin a lot. I talk to my sister all the time. We are so different but we are best friends. She is so beautiful and kind. I love her and would do anything for her. She is so kind, smart, strong, and everything else. My cousin Ali is one of my favorites. She is so nice and funny. She is great and strong. I love them.
I miss my friends that I spent a lot of this year with. The girls in the apartment across the hall always laugh at me and keep me on my toes. I am excited to get better and see everyone again!!!

I love working out. It helps me concentrate better, calm down, and most importantly look better. Before my injury I was a bit of a gym rat. I would go to kickboxing, running, cycling, pilates, yoga, weights, and of course dancing. After my accident I have had to rest and not work out! Now I am getting back into a very basic work out routine! I go walking three to four times a week and do some of my previous physical therapy work out routines. Even though this is a lot more mellow than my normal routine I can already tell a difference. I have learned that it does not always matter what you do as long as you work out. Sometimes you have to take it easy because your body needs to heal.

On Sunday my dad and I woke up at 6:30 in the morning and made the long drive from Utah to Southern California. My Dad drove the entire time since I was drugged up the entire time. When I got home I was greeted by my mothers warm love and affection, and the shock of how much my brother has grown. The next morning I woke up and went to my first doctors appointment of the week. The next day I went to go get x- rays! Then later on the last day I went to the doctors for the third time that week. I have already noticed a difference in my back just from being at home. I have been sleeping, not carrying heavy things, taking prescriptions for my sinus infection and my back. I think that I will be able to come back to school a lot healthier. I am so grateful for my friends and family who have been helping me in my heeling process.

I had a way mellow Halloween! I had plans to party hop and be out all night, but my night ended up being rather relaxing. I started off the night getting ready with my roommates and then ended up going to my great friend Sandy's! Her and her brother made delicious corn chowder and rolls. After devouring a delicious dinner we watched "The Village." We then decided that we wanted to go dancing. We were at the party for no more than fifteen minutes when we decided to go home and relax. It was way fun! I thought my costume was funny and for those who have seen "She's the Man" found it rather funny!
Sandy and I on Halloween!! She is an adorable cat and I am Eunice from "She's the Man"!
