I want long hair. I envy all of the movie stars with that beautiful long waist lenght hair, I know that theirs is just extensions but I still envy it. I always say that I'm going to grow it out long, but then I get impatient because my hair looks like crap. So I cut it short. I did that at the begining of the semester, it was just below my shoulders. This week I got impatient again, now my hair is so short I can't put it into a normal ponytail, it is just above my shoulders. I love the haircut a ton. I was inspired by Jenny McCarthy, the ex playboy model that is dating Jim Carrey, and she has the most perfect hair. The only thing is I still wish that my hair were longer, now it is going to take over a year to get it to the length that I'm hoping for. I'm such an impatient person, I just want results now. Is that possible?

I have my tree, we have our snow, and the cold temperatures (which I am excited to escape from when we go to Texas), and we have a few presents under the tree that we have bought for our family. The only thing missing is the gift for Sean. I have no idea what to buy him, I am having the hardest time trying to figure out what to get because I want it to be special and meaningful and something that he would actually enjoy. It would be so easy to buy him a beanie or a sweater, but that would just be lame. I want to make him happy and I want him to actually enjoy whatever it is that I get him. He is so wonderful. We have had a few Christmas surprises come early, we found out we are getting money back from BYU because we were paying insurance for Sean when we didn't need to, and we were able to get a tree. That is my favorite thing of all. Target was able to get them in stock and I got to buy my tree and decorate it, it made my day, I just felt more Christmasy. I am so happy, this is going to be a wonderful Christmas!

I am so excited for Christmas, infact I was excited for the weekend after Thanksgiving so that I could get a tree and decorate it and decorate my house. I am so sad that the tree that I wanted to get at Target (not a real one) is all sold out. It is also sold out in American Fork, so right now my house is lacking in Christmas decor. I put up the few things that I have that don't go on a tree, but I am really sad. My favorite thing is to decorate the tree and listen to Christmas music and eat cookies. That is a tradition that I wanted to start in my family, unfortunately it was put to a halt this year due to the lack of the tree. Luckily we will be celebrating Christmas in Texas with my parents and brothers and sister and they will have a tree. I just wish that I could have my house all festive for when people come over. I want my house to be a warm inviting and comfortable place that people love to visit. I hope that when we have children that they will want to spend time at the house and invite friends over and that people will love our home and that the spirit will be felt in our home. I kind of feel like Christmas decorations help to bring the spirit of Christmas and provoke thoughts of the birth of Christ making it a wonderful season. It is just so sad that the trees are all sold out, I could order them online, but then it would take over a week to get here and by then we will be leaving for TX so this year we are treeless. I guess we could get a real tree like last year, but it makes the worst mess and technically we are not supposed to have them in Wymount.

So the past couple of days the internet has not worked in our house. First we thought it was because of the router, so I called India and talked to them ( see previous blog to understand how that went). Then I called BYU office of IT and was on and off the phone for 4 hours maybe even 5 to try and get the problem fixed. However unconvenient that was, I find not being able to use the internet like the end of the world. I do so many things on the internet: facebook, email, blackboard, people.com, google, abc.com, etc. I just don't think I could handle not having the internet for much longer, luckily today they fixed it. But really I am so dependent. I love to check my email and see if I got anything new, and I spend countless hours on facebook and watching tv shows that I missed. I guess that I should be spending less time on the internet and try finding more useful ways to spend my time. I guess I should read more and study more and try to be more intellectual and intelligent. I guess I am just a big time waster because I don't really want to do my homework. The truth is I just don't like school, so I am trying to just turn my mind into mush every chance I get.
I have decided that it just isn't fair that we outsource to India because it is cheaper. I mean I understand that the people there need the money, but so do people in the United States that speak clear english. It is very frustrating when you are having problems with your computer or your router and so you have to call the customer service line and you have to talk to someone that you don't clearly understand which makes you even more frustrated. I just have to say that it would make for a lot less angry customers if the service people were easily understood and that they didn't hang up with you because you were annoyed with them.

I have had the most annoying experiences with the bank lately. I have never ever had any problems with them before. But now there is a typo in their system and someone else has the same social security number as I do. They are not using it because I checked my credit on freecreditreport.com you know like in the commercials. But this silly typo that is the bank's fault is keeping me from getting a credit card from them because they messed up my life. Then I go to check my statement online, which I have been doing for several years, and all of a sudden it tells me that I do not have an online account. So not true. I have had an online account forever. To resolve this I try to call their customer service line, but of course for that you have to have your account number memorized, I used to, but I switched accounts and just haven't had the time to stick all of those numbers into my brain, so I can't get any help. So the next step would be to actually go into the bank, but since I'm on campus and it is a Tuesday at 11:00 am when I figure all of this out, the bank is closed due to retarded devotional. No one good is speaking today anyways. I am almost to the point where I want to switch banks, but that would be another hassel in itself. This really sucks!
