Exciting News!

I am a yoga instructor on the BYU-I campus :)

I tried out on Thursday in front of two judges who were my "participants" and apparently did well enough because they penciled in teaching times right after! I teach Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 pm to 9:50, and Saturday mornings at 9:00.

This is going to be a great experience. I've never taught a class before, so this will look really good on my resume, and it will really stretch me (ha, no pun intended.)

I have been living and beathing yoga this week. I can't stop thinking about it and my class! Yesterday I went out and purchased 3 new yoga videos to get some ideas, I did 2 of them this morning, and I'm going to plan my routines tomorrow.

My goal is to concentrate on my students, their comfort, and provide them with an effective workout that leaves them feeling strong and rejuvenated. I really want to be supportive. It's not easy, not even for me.

I'll be sure to keep you updated on how it's going and everything. This is a fun but kind of scary new step i'm taking. But it's gonna be really good :)

I know I always post about school, but

I just wanted to to let you know that I got my scholarship! That test grade pulled it off and I will get tuition free for two semesters until they re-evaluate my GPA, and I hopefully qualify for it again.

Thank you for all your prayers and encouraging words. You guys are awesome. This really has been a satisfying end to a difficult semester. I can't wait to do it all again next week, haha.

Oh, and a little anecdote - Ivon and Nancy Young were sweet enough to give me an extra camera they hadn't been using, because my current one is dead. It is SO nice. I love it. But anyways, I'll be able to upload my pictures onto my blog now, not just one's I find on Google.

Well, I think it's exciting :)

Label: Random pic of me and Derek. Every blog entry needs a picture, right?

!!PRAY FOR ME!! please...

I know, I'm pulling a Derek in asking this, but I am about to take the most important test of my college careerand I need your prayers...and here's why:

To get a full tuition scholarship I need a certain GPA by the end of this term. I know it's cutting it close but I need all A's and only one A- in a 3 credit course to get it. I have gotten A's in all my classes except...Business Statistics... (dun- dun- dun!)

This scholarship could ease the financial burden of my parents, help me reach my goal, and I get a little extra money from my parents to pay my expenses if I get it.

This test is worth 30% of my grade...ouch. But I know with your prayers I can do well on it and get my A-!! So who's with me!!?? You know I'd do the same for you :)
