Worst. alarm. ever.

So this morning I was super excited because I didn't have to be to work until 8...sounds a little sad, but that's starting late for us. I don't have to leave my house till 7:40 so I was planning on sleeping in till about 7:20. I refuse to take any more then 20 minutes to get ready any given morning. This is probably why I'm single, but I really enjoy my sleep so it's totally worth it. Anyway, at seven I stirred from my slumber because I felt something on my arm. I thought maybe it was a hair, but then it felt like it was moving. So I reached back and grabbed it off my arm...and ouch! Whatever it was either bit me or stung me or something, and I'm a little over-concerned about poisonous spiders because one of my friend's owns a pest control business. So I immediately jump out of bed and flip on my light and grab a lamp and start hunting around my room. Then I hear something hitting my light. I look up...and lo and behold there is a huge wasp in my room. I was ticked. I grabbed a shoe and started chasing it around my room. I cornered it and slammed it with my shoe. Only problem is I'm not actually for sure it's dead because when I hit it it flew somewhere. But I don't think it actually flew. I think I hit it so hard it just back-fired under a table or something. Either way, I'm sure I looked like a crazy face running around my room with out of control bed hair and messed up pajamas. Happy stinkin Halloween.

Official official

So last night some of my buddies called me and asked me to be the line judge at their BYU intramural volley ball game. I told them I was completely unqualified for this and my buddy Cory responded "Are you serious? Can you see lines on wood? Can you tell if things hit to the left or right side of that line? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then you are qualified." I thought he made a good point. So then I asked what I should wear...and he told me to look official. I take these instructions literally. My roommate Michelle used to be a ref for she has the official zebra striped shirt. I most definitely borrowed it and looked totally legit. The best part is line refs don't have to be can wear whatever you want...a kid was there in a suit because he had come from work. This did not phase me. I still rocked the outfit and called it like I saw was awesome. I think I'm going to do it again. It also further confirmed my belief that any one and their dog can ref for BYU intramural sports...hence the reason so many fights break out between refs and students. I only had one kid kind of give me attitude though...and I told him he wasn't the boss of me. I think that threw him off a bit because he didn't talk to me after that.

So....I sing opera.

I don't have very many pictures of it, but i thought it would be enjoyable for some of you to know that I sing opera. It's fun but tons of hard work...but you wanna know what makes it all worth it???....
THE WIGS!!!! Seriously costumes and wigs were so fun...not so much fun to wear...but definitely fun to look at. Some day I'll post sound clips so y'all can tell me if I'm any good!:)

Maiden Voyage of blogging... is the first post! Only problem is it's not that exciting. I'm just posting to post I'll just try to give a quick update of life as is:
I'm the office manager for Utah Valley Endodontics in Orem...and probably my strongest asset is I have a really good phone voice:) It is a good job though and I work with fun people.
I graduated from BYU last April in music...which is why I am working in an office! I'm teaching private voice lessons still. (so if any of you need voice lessons, or you know someone who does this is a shameless plug!!)
I don't know of anything else that exciting...I'm still very single...and I'm still working on singing since I will eventually be going to graduate school in performance, well, at least thats the plan at this point.
So...there you go!! The Maiden Voyage is complete!
