Still a Junior

Inside of part of the Tanner Building... It is the N. Eldon Tanner Building for Business :) Basically I live here now...everyone looks so professional!

This is my fourth year at BYU and somehow it says I am still a Junior. Oh well, it happens. Who graduates in 4 years anyways? No one. Well unless your a freak and overload yourself with classes and have no fun in college. So yes technically this is my third year, according to credits. My major is Business Management, emphasis in Marketing and I'm minoring in World Dance. World Dance aka Folk dance is another story. I will blog about that... For now! I'm all business and I have NO classes Friday! I love not having classes on Friday! Every week is a 3 day week! I have not had no classes Friday except for maybe Freshman year one semester. Folk dance does that to you. Monday/Wednesday/Friday and somehow you schedule other classes Friday otherwise it's a pain to go on campus for 1 class.
Here is an outside pic of the Business Building...Pretty!
My classes this semester are:

New Testament (Rel 211): I do like this class, religion classes are definitely good at BYU. Weirdly, it is in the RB, RIGHT next to where I always dance...and did dance until this semester. And I see all of my dancing friends dance...and I'm not.

Information Systems (ISYS 201): Pretty much you learn about motherboards, gigabytes, and making databases mixed with Excel and tons of NOT FUN stuff. Luckily I know a girl in there (Kayla McColm) and we will get through with it!

Managerial Economics (ManEc 453- Money, Banking, & Business): Pretty much our teacher is super vague and no one has any idea of what is going on. We catch glimpses of truth when he speaks down to us and then lose it when he goes back to normal. The teacher is pretty funny and is passionate about ManEc. He says he 'absolutely LOVES forecasting' (so inflation, stocks, bonds, interest rates, who knows what on Excel). It's funny. Luckily I met a cool girl, Lauren Tavernier, who we spend hours on our daily assignments. Today we spent 2 hours on changing nominal values from the year 1970 to real values with the help of a GDP Deflator (compliments of FRED), graphing them, analyzing them, and doing it like 5 times. Good times....

Business Law (Acc 241): Surprisingly so far I do like this class, a little bit. You read for hours out of a heavy maroon law book. I like carrying it around because people think I'm smart although the downside is that it is at least 5 pounds. The class kind of makes me want to be a lawyer, like in Legally Blonde, but then again I don't like reading cases.... so and so vs. so and so...plaintiff vs. defendant. We'll see how it goes. Oh and good thing I know a bunch of random guys in there...and well suck it up and become lawyers for the semester.

Women's Entrepreneur Lecture Series (BusM 371R): This class makes me want to be an entrepreneur...but then it is a lot of hard work. And I would like to skip hard work and get whatever I want ASAP. I like instant gratification. Oh well! But every other week a female entrepreneur comes in and gives us an inspiring lecture. It's super interesting and inspiring.

So that's that. 12 credits. MW are pretty hectic days. T/Th I have one class. Friday- none. So I am looking to hopefully get this job to fill in Friday/Saturday/possibly Tuesday and Thursday as well. So I'm waiting for them to call me :) I want to be a Care Technician at CFC (Center for Change) and change peoples lives and 'help people who need help'. Here's there website: http://www.centerforchange.com/

Oh and DON'T APPLY...I want it :) Thanks! That's all for today. Or for this post. It's been awhile since I've blogged.
PS. Kevin started BYU Baseball tryouts this week and so I had to put a throwback pic on...okay it is from last season...but he is doing quite well pitching and playing 3rd base :) So we'll see what happens!
