Well, this is embarrassing! I really have a hard time keeping up with my blog. Since now I'm back in school, I'm going to be better at updating it often.
I am now on my second semester at UVU, and it's going great. This last semester (Spring 2015), I had 5 classes starting off; Archaeological Method and Theory, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Marriage and Relationship Skills, and Introduction to Social Work. I didn't realize how much work I would be doing in all of those classes, so I dropped the Marriage and Relationship Skills, and Introduction to Social Work classes. Which is totally fine, because I can take them in a later semester. This semester (Summer 2015), I registered for Tennis, Areobics: Zumba, Fitness For Life, and Human Development Life Span. Tennis and Aerobics are in the first block of the summer semester, and Fitness For Life and Human Development Life Span are in the second block of the summer semester. So far, things are going well.
I also got 2 jobs working at UVU. I work as a House Manager for the UVU Noorda Theatre, and I am a Receptionist for the School of the Arts Advisement Center. Both jobs are really fun, and easy going, and I'm able to meet amazing people.
Outside of school and work, I spend all my time with my amazing boyfriend, Hector Davila. Hector and I graduated from Springville High School together. We met our Junior year of High School (September 1, 2006 to be exact) in our ballroom dance class (Hector was my Waltz partner), and we've been friends ever since. It wasn't until after our trip to Seattle, Washington this last year (October 2014), where our relationship bloomed into something new and exciting. We became a "Facebook Official" couple on December 16, 2014, but we both agree that our relationship really started when we first met. This year, we will be celebrating our 9 year "anniversary". It sounds kind of silly, but to us, it's romantic. Hector and I recently found an apartment up in Murray, Utah (Lost Creek Apartments), that we applied for, and will be moving in hopefully by the end of next month. We're really excited about that. Hector really wants a puppy, and I really want a kitten, so once we've settled into our new place, we'll hopefully be getting one, or both.
Hector and I also recently got back from our second trip to Mexico. The first trip to Mexico was completely spontaneous. The only people we told were my parents, Hector's stepdad, and his little brother. Word got our around my family, and some of them were happy for us, some were jealous, and some were worried for my safety. I just reminded them that I have Hector there to protect me. And he did. Hector's mother lives in Mexico with his little brother, and she didn't know we were coming down to visit. When we got there, she was so happy to see Hector, and vice versa. I had never "officially" met her (other than one of mine and Hector's dance recitals in high school), so I was really nervous to meet her. I don't know what I was so nervous about, because she was so kind, generous, and welcoming. While we were there, I was able to experience a lifestyle that was so strange and foreign to me. I was able to see sights, try amazing food, and meet some of Hector's family.
The second trip to Mexico, Hector and I took some of his mom's storage boxes down to her. These boxes were filled with Hector and his brothers' childhood memories. It was cute watching them go through the boxes. We were only planning on making the trip really fast, so we could get back to work and school, but we ended up being there for a week. It was another much needed vacation for the both of us, Again, we were able to go see some sights, and eat more amazing food!
Now that Hector and I are back from Mexico, it's time to get back into the school / work groove. It's been tough, because we still want to be on vacation, but we're planning another trip at the end of this year. We only wish it would come quicker, because both trips to Mexico went by too quickly.
I will update more about the adventures of my life sometime soon!
