HSM3 (aka "High School Musical 3" for those of you who aren't familiar with the pre-teen lingo)

Tonight then my roommates and I decided to venture out to the movie theater to watch High School Musical 3. Mary, Laura, and I went to see HSM3, while Kinsey and Emmilie watched some far inferior movie. The main reasons I went to see the movie were that first of all Mary insisted that we see it on opening night. Both Mary and I have an appreciation for the Disney channel that many others don't have, therefore thiswas an exciting night for her. She even bought tickets online several days ago to make sure the movie didn't sell out on us. The second reason I went to see the movie is that one of my BFF's was one of the background actors. Hooray for Rio Andrus...she is such a SUPERSTAR! But I got very excited when I saw her in a couple scenes of the movie...I told her the parts where I saw her, but she said there are several more scenes, so after she returns to Idaho we will have to have a party and she can point herself out...I am quite excited! 

The movie actually turned out to be really good. Although it was extremely cheesy, it is just one of those movies that makes you laugh/smile. The dancing in the movie was really good which I really loved. Also the songs were a lot of fun...hilarious...but really good. My favorite party of the movie was when Troy did an "angry dance" just reminded me of "Bret's angry dance" from Flight of the Conchords.....which is apparently making fun of an angry dance from Footloose. My roommates sometimes have angry dance parties during those stressful I found it quite enjoyable! 
Thumbs up

"Marry me Troy"

"This is the Happiest moment of my life"

The illegal movie theater picture...Mary refused to have any part in such a scandal

On the way to the movies...I don't know why Emmilie is so happy...she didn't even watch HSM3

Girls just wanna have fun!

Occasionally in my apartment we don't know how to spend our Friday this particular weekend my roommate Mary and I decided to build a fort in the living room. It was a pretty great fort! good ventilation, structurally sound, practically perfect in every way. Unfortunately after sleeping in it for two nights in a row we were forced to take it down. But here are all the great memories made in the fort!

My very own Island

Today when I was watching Disney Channel, something was mentioned that had me thinking about private islands. I went straight to wikipedia to search for answers about my questions concerning private islands. Who do you buy them from? What about running water and electricity? How much do they cost? I actually learned a lot of information that I did not know about private islands. The main thing I learned is that I want one. 

I found a neat website, and found myself the perfect little island. 

Here is Moss Cays, it is 3 acres in the Bahamas and includes a rustic home. Only 3 million dollars! Even though 3 million is a lot of money, it is substantially less than I thought my own private island would cost. 

Unfortunately the island is owned by the U.S. so I would be unable to form my own micronation, like some island owners do. I was also trying to figure out who people purchase an island from if it is not already owned by a nation. Do they purchase it from...planet Earth? Or is it up for grabs? So many questions that I cannot answer about private islands...All I know is I want one. It will be my motivation to do my homework (If I do my homework I'll be a success, successful people have money, money gets me my island).

My trip to Provo/ conference

For conference weekend Daniel, his roommate Mitch, my roommates Mary and Laura, and I decided to hop in archibald and head down to Utah. Once we got down there I spent most of the weekend with Andrea and all of her friends. It was really fun to just get away from Rexburg and hang out with Andrea. On Saturday we took the TRAX down to Salt Lake and stood on the corner begging for conference tickets. I don't know how to beg, and felt extremely awkward, but we were still able to get tickets for the Saturday morning session. It was so amazing to actually get to go to conference, it was the first time I had been, so it was a brand new experience. Unfortunately I didn't get to take any pictures in Salt Lake City because it was pouring down rain. The rest of the weekend we spent mostly hanging out at Andrea's friends Carl's apartment. His roommate had a projection screen so we were able to watch movies on the big screen, and were able to watch conference on a very large scale. Hopefully I'll be able to go to visit Provo again pretty soon.
