October....I don't remember anything except Trick or Treating in a Thai gown with a pack of foreign children who had NO idea why they were taking candy from people. Such a good time.
November....We had a friend thanksgiving celebration. It was the best. So many peeling potatoes until we passed out.
December....I had an enjoyable holiday season. Early on in December Danny and I took a roadtrip to Arizona to pick my little sister up from basketball camp. We can't officially call it a road trip to phoenix because we spent a total of one hour in phoenix. I got some sweet jewelry from the Navajo reservation and now all I ever want to do it go buy more jewelry from them. On Christmas Eve I headed to Hawaii to spend it with my family. I was only there six days but I had a good time. The big house was completely packed and I was shunned into the little house. I like the small house, however I was attacked by a centipede the size of a horse. I will NEVER look at that house the same. Because of all the "change in altitude" I developed a sinus infection. Probably the second sickest I have ever been in my life. It was miserable
January...I Moved to Holladay and started school at the U. Its an interesting place in that it is completely normal. Before I came up I heard horror stories of hard classes and overly liberal teachers but I haven't found any of that to be true. I really enjoy living in Salt Lake for a few reasons A.) People don't wonder whats wrong with me for not being married. B.) GLORIOUS GLORIOUS living situation. No marathon runners upstairs and no roommates mothers sleeping over. We've got a really great singles ward. That is a sentence I never thought I would say. But it's true. C.) The Bus. I take the bus to and from campus. It takes a good half hour from 45th so I have a lot of time for people watching. So many jems to be had in this booming metropolis.
Now...I am just looking for employment and going to school. There's not a whole lot more to say than that. Until I get myself some income I will be taking part in medical studies and selling my things on the internet.

It's true. I turned 22 this month, or I guess last month. September at any rate. I was talking to Danny(also turned 22 is sept) and we agreed that there is not a better month to be born in. There just isn't. So this blog is dedicated to the month of September. I'm ashamed to admit but I fall into that whole zodiac astrology nightmare on occasion.
Virgo in a Nutshell:"Virgo exists in the mind, everything is inside. To the world, Virgo presents a calm and collected exterior but on the inside, nervous uncontrolled intensity in the mind, trying to figure things out, how to improve everything, analyzing and thinking. Virgo can tire itself out without even moving! Virgo has a constant drive to improve and perfect, this can lead to extreme pickiness and finickiest. They are pure, their motives are honest never malicious and they want to accomplish something"
I just thought that would be fun. True or not, I actually agree with this description. I guess I am a little intense at times. It is fine. Uh. well for my birthday we went to the Utah state Fair. The real party started the following Saturday when we went to the Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake. In case you don't know, I just like birds. They are the best. We also attended an Indian festival in Spanish Fork. It was a way good time.

1. OPI "Monsooner or later" colored nail polish
****When the wind picked up the fire spread and the grapevine scene left for dead. And the northern sky looked like the end of days, the end of days. A wake up call to a rented room Sounded like an alarm of impending doom. To warn us it's only a matter of time. Before we all burn before we all burn before we all burn before we all burn. We bought some wine and some paper cups near your daughter's school when we picked her up and drove to a cemetery on a hill, on a hill. And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray as she laughed and danced through the field of grapes there i knew it would be alright that everything would be alright, would be alright would be alright would be alright. And the news reports on the radio said it was getting worse as the ocean air fanned the flames. But i couldn't think of anywhere i would have rather been to watch it all burn away, to burn away. The firemen worked in double shifts, with prayers for rain on their lips, and they knew it was only a matter of time.

Well. Hello again everyone. I'm happy to say that I am back in the blogging scene. For those of you who don't know, during my 2006 travels I kept a humble blog about my adventures abroad. Feel free to visit anytime: www.amydawnsimons.blogspot.com
But more importantly, I'm excited for this blog because instead of having to walk a mile (uphill both ways),in the freezing cold/blistering heat, pay 125 rubles/6 pounds an hour, and then have the computer break just when I was about to post something, I can now blog in the comfort of my home. Or at UVSC until the geniuses at PC laptops fix my computer (current time without a computer: 1 month 9 days). I also will have a bit more time on my hands because I recently found myself quitting my glamorous retail lifestyle at the Buckle and am currently unemployed. So this really just works out perfect. Instead of contributing to a functioning society, I will be writing down my deepest darkest beliefs so I can confuse society even more. GET IT. Yaya mek. And just to clear things up about the title of this blog. 'I can hear the Atlantic echo back' is nothing except a remarkable phrase I found written on a bathroom stall at a cafe in Seattle. You will find that I like meaningless things that are probably very meaningful to someone I've never met before. Someone out there doesn't even know the legacy they left behind in that women’s rest room.
