Give Blood. Save Lives.

Guess what I did today?!

I donated blood.

And I got a free t-shirt.

I love free shirts! :)

Ready Or Not...

For those of you who don't know me, my name is ShaNeil Coons. My husband, Russell, and I live in Ephraim. I am currently serving as the student representative for USU Southwest. There... Now you pretty much know me! :)

That means I can now make my blog a little bit more personal, right? I'll start by sharing a secret with you. By sharing this secret, I am taking a risk. Some of you might judge me, but that's okay! This secret is one that you already know if you have been following my blog for a while, and new readers might get the first impression that I'm super geeky... But I'll tell you anyway.

I color-coordinate my life. There, now you know! You are probably wondering about the random picture of folders and pens, huh? Well, that is how I stay organized! See how I have a matching pen for every folder? That means I'm cool! The other pens on the sides each have a meaning of their own too. It's all part of making my planner easier to understand...not to mention more exciting! :)


Classes started on Monday, right?

Don't think too hard...they did. is Tuesday and I am already feeling a little bit overwhelmed with everything I have to do. Afterall, did you see how many different colored pens I have?!

It seems like I get like this at the beginning of EVERY semester, but I know that I'll get back in the swing of things before too long!

Graduation for USU Southwest was last Friday, and it was fantastic! It was held in the Snow College music buliding, and everything looked great. I didn't actually have time to listen to the speakers, but I did get to hand out programs, scoop a whole lot of ice cream, and take some beautiful flowers home!

It was a very busy day, so unfortunately these are the only pictures I was able to take...
Can I just say that the Bed Bath & Beyond ice cream scoop is pretty much amazing? Because it is...
Can I also tell you how happy it made me that I could have these in my apartment without sneezing non-stop? Because it made me WAY happy! :D

8 GBs Of Awesomeness!

Being in my fourth year of college, my life is basically on my flash drive. Back in the day I decided that an 8 GB flash drive would be a great investment... So I purchased one and it changed my life!

A couple weeks ago when I was using it, I realized that it had started to bend a little bit. It scared me to death because I thought I was going to lose EVERYTHING! So I quickly went online to find a new one so I could backup all of my hard work. :)

I found one that looked pretty cool, so I logged into Russell's account and purchased it! It came in the mail on Monday, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it! I was expecting it to be small, but SERIOUSLY?! It's tiny!

So I decided to show you a picture so you could get a feel for what I'm talking about. In this photo you see my old flash drive, a penny, and my new flash drive. Awesome, right? :) I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited about it!

Cute Toes!

I know what you're thinking right now since you just read the title of this're thinking, "ShaNeil is such a liar! Those toes are NOT cute!"

But don't the toenails look AMAZING?! I have the best friend in the whole entire world! Her name is Erin, and I don't just love her because she paints my toenails. She goes to Dixie, and I miss her so much! :( I always try to get her to come here with me, but I guess she loves being where she can wear flip flops all the time.

Not that I blame her, because I love flip flops! I wear them whenever possible, especially when I have cute toenails to show off! :)

I would like to tell you a little story about when I first came to college. I didn't have any friends here, and I was extremely lonely. After my family dropped me off and headed home I just sat in my bedroom and cried a little. :( It was really hard! I didn't know any of my roommates, but it didn't really matter because none of them had moved in yet.

While I was sitting there feeling bad for myself someone knocked on my door. I opened it to find four boys with big smiles on their faces. They introduced themselves and then asked what my name is. I told them, and one boy asked how to spell it. I spelled it as one of them wrote it down on paper. I'm not gonna lie, I thought they were weirdos!

Then they said, "Sweet! You're on our frisbee team now. We'll let you know when the games start!" I argued that I had never played frisbee before, but they came back with, "That's too bad...we already wrote your name down. I guess you're just gonna have to learn!" So I did. And I loved it!

It didn't take me very long to figure out that owning a light up frisbee is all it takes to be cool in college. Obviously, I purchased one immediately. I have been playing frisbee ever since. :)

So...yesterday my little brother, Jace, came to visit Russell and I. It was so fun to have him here! Russell took him gold panning, then we introduced him to ultimate frisbee and volleyball. He even got to play in our intramurals games, AND he scored! He was incredible! I had no idea that he could play like that! :)

He's only in eighth grade, but he told me that he can't wait to come to Snow just so he can play frisbee!
