Hello! I need help with apartments :)
Does anyone know of Mountainwood Condos and Atla Apartments? Pros, cons? Average age of wards?

What are some good apartments that have a fun ward with a wide spread of age of people? My roommate is 5 years older then I am, and we're wanting to room together next year, so we're looking for a ward that has people for both of our ages! :)

Thanks so much!

Hi there NCAA College Fans.... [27 Oct 2009|12:11pm]


Ok, first off, I have to say, I really have NO IDEA what I am doing with this. Hopefully I can actually post and not screw this up. ;)

Hi readers, My name is Cheri Rocha and I have recently opened an online business at www.yourcollegeteamstore.com. I am specializing in NCAA College teams in the C-USA, MAC, WAC, Mountain West, and SunBelt Divisions.

My husband was actually the inspiration for this store. He is an alumni of a C-USA school and was just tired of not being able to find merchandise for his school. You could always find stuff for the "Big Schools", or what would be considered the "popular" ones. So we started doing research and found that there are manufacturers that do make this stuff, but not many who will carry or sell it. So that is where Your College Team Store originated.

We are the typical family of 4, with 2 dogs, and a cat. Both our children are school aged and they really do eat up alot of our free time with all their sports and school activites, but we wanted to find something that we could do to help other "Division 1 School Alumni" or (current students) find the items that they want, without having to search and search for someone who makes or sells it.

As I said before, we just JUST OPENED...but, I am adding new items to every school in the C-USA, MAC, WAC, Mountain West, and SunBelt Divisions as I am able to find them. I will try and add new items as often and possible, and post on here what is new, and any promtions that we have that day/week.

I thank you in advance for taking a moment and clicking on our store link above... Please pass it along to your friends and family. The more people I can direct to the site, the higher I can get on those darn search engines... If you find something you like, and maybe it's not in your school, just let me know.. I will do what I can to find it for you.

Everyone have a safe and Happy Halloween this weekend.

Transfer Questions [28 Sep 2008|02:50pm]

Hello! I'm a student at Portland Community College in Oregon, hoping to transfer to BYU for their animation program next fall.

...except I've encountered a problem of sorts. I went on to Route Y's 'Transfer Equvalencies' page and found out that very few of the classes at PCC seem to be transferable. In fact, I may be unable to transfer *any* of my credits I earn here. I freaked out and told my mother this, but she told me that I should be okay anyways and I'll just have to take a few extra classes to make up for my freshman year. To me, though, this seems highly suspect to not being able to happen. So my main question is, is it at all possible to transfer into BYU as a sophomore if none of my credits are actually transferable?

Also, I have heard from different people that it's easier to get into BYU as a transfer student than as a freshman, but I've found a statistic somewhere saying that the transfer acceptance rate is about 48%. Is that about right, or is that completely unfounded?

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

Rent Frustration [02 Jun 2008|12:06pm]

[ mood | angry ]

I just paid $174.91 in rent.  Let's see if this adds up:
129 rent
10 communications fee (for what?  Cable is "free" and so is internet... I don't get a phone from them...)
10 parking permit
5 charge for cleaning in April... (bullsh*t)
the rest utilities?

I'm sorry.  My rent should not be this high.  What can I do?  I just signed a contract till August 1st.  That's it, then I'm done.  I don't understand why they think that they have to screw me over.  Rent used to be $120 here (everything included...).  I can't wait to get out and be on my own.  Does anyone know if there is a way that I can complain about my apartment complex and see some action?  I don't think I would mind paying so much, except there are empty spots in the parking lot, I don't get a phone line... so I have to pay for a cell phone anyway, and the apartment could get cleaned and cleaned and it wouldn't matter.  They would still try to charge me.  I'm so fed up with the Riviera.  I should have signed an agreement with a different apartment complex, but didn't want to move... *sigh*  This is so frusterating. 

Does anyone else feel that BYU approved housing is only out to get them?  How can we voice our concerns about it?  I feel really stuck... I'm glad I'm moving out in August.  Oh yeah and the Riviera is housing EFY kids, and I'm sure they are getting a nice premium from BYU so it's not like they don't get money... they are losing people left and right to other apartment complexes.  I will be in my apartment alone next month, and my roommate is sick of it and will be moving out June 21st....

Hi everyone! [31 May 2008|12:55am]

First off I am not going to BYU. I plan on it maybe down in the future or going somewhere close by, but right now it's a no go.

Why I joined this community?

I want to move near the campus. I am having a hard time finding people to help me find a place there. I am not a student, and want to move from Florida as soon as possible. I plan on attending church and being surrounded by people that share the same morals and values and my goal is to get married someday in the temple. I was recommended to move to Provo and honestly I think it might be the best decision for me to make in my life right now.

So does anyone know of places that are close to campus that will accept non-students. Is there anyone that can guide me on what to do here? I am kinda lost and calling random wards seems kinda crazy.

Just comment on here.

Sharing Missionary Experiences [07 Apr 2008|09:42pm]

Elder M. Russell Ballard recently challenged members of the Church to utilize multimedia as a missionary tool so we have just updated www.RestorationMercantile.com with the capability for users to share missionary moments and experiences in the hope that all who visit will be edified.

Search engines rely on keywords to find sites and Google's search algorithm checks to see how often a site is updated to ensure it's current. By adding missionary experiences frequently, those who are searching the internet will more likely find what they are looking for.

We wanted our website to be more than just a place to sell ties. The whole reason we started making LDS-themed neckties in the first place is to spark interest and have people ask questions about the Church. So, heeding Elder Ballard's counsel, we wanted to take it to the next level.

Other sections that have been added are Church News, A Prophet's Voice (quotes by general authorities) and downloadable LDS resources. We plan to update the site frequently so if you have any ideas, please let us know.

Please take a moment to go to www.RestorationMercantile.com and click on Missionary Moments to share your experience. Also, pass along to your LDS friends so that we can get the word out and begin to build a strong LDS community that not only edifies other visitors but shines light on who we are as Latter-day Saints while strengthening our own testimonies.

Temple Tie idea.. [02 Jan 2008|12:31pm]
I picked up my brother on the way to church the other day and he mentioned how he'd like a temple tie but hadn't seen one that he'd liked. So we kicked around the idea of designing our own. We created designs using photos we'd taken or friends had taken and I made some hi-res illustrations and toyed around with the idea until we came up with 5 that we had manufactured. We got our domain (www.RestorationMercantile.com) and have started selling. It's weird that this idea started in our driveway, but hey, whatever works, right?

Here are a couple examples:

The others are posted in my journal http://n8p40.livejournal.com/11330.html

Thanks for taking a look!

A friend asked the question... [24 Dec 2007|05:45pm]

[ mood | curious ]

How would you recognize a man of God or what is a man of God?

Someone who honors and magnifies their priesthood calling. You'd be able to gage a man's dedication to the Lord by how he preforms his priesthood duties. D&C 4:2; "Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day."
Someone wise and elect - D&C 29:7; "...for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts"

respectful, honest, and self motivated - D&C 58:26; For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things; for he that is compelled in all things, the same is a slothful and not a wise servant; wherefore he recieveth no reward. Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness."

Now with those things you get the domino effect of all the other qualities that most women want.

(I'm starting to sound like I'm teaching sunday school - sorry.)

Now if you can think of any other things to add, please post!

So what is it like? [09 Dec 2007|08:21pm]

I'm not a student, but I have some questions as I'm concidering to apply for a full scholarship my high school offers for BYU. I'm not mormon and I'm pretty liberal in my political views. Now I've heard different things from people, some former students say it's not that conservative and that I shouldn't worry about feeling that I can't be who I am, while others say it's pretty conservative. It seems pretty good to me, but I'm a bit unsure as I don't think I would like going to a school where people won't agree with any of my opinions and I would be a total outcast or something.

Thanks in advance!

Temple Collection [07 Sep 2007|09:02pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

After class I drove to the Provo Temple and snapped some photos. I don't know why but I have this interest in the Provo Temple now. I never did before, but for some reason I like it. I love the architecture and the symbolism behind it. It's been said that the design of the Provo Temple is to represent Moses' Burning Bush. :) I love that!
So last night when I took pictures I only liked 3 of the ones I took with my camera (I had taken some with my phone which are just AWESOME!)... I made sure to try and capture the "Burning Bush" feel to it on one of them. ;)

Here are my favorite 3:

Selling DDR stuff [20 Dec 2006|11:55pm]

I have a 1" hard foam DDR pad (the one with the foam inserts that you zipper inside). There's a crack in the part of the plastic, but when I used the pad about a month and a half ago, it worked very well. I'm selling it for 20 dollars, which is about how much one of the thin pads costs.

I'm also selling 4 DDR games, which can be bought individually.

DDRMAX - $15
DDRMAX2 - $15
DDR Konamix - $15
DDR Extreme - $25

*please note that these are all for PS2

My email address is barrelroll@gmail.com if you are interested.

2 contracts south of campus for sale! [15 Dec 2006|04:59pm]

My sister and I are moving, and we need to sell our contracts ASAP. We're in Belmont, rent's $250/month, the place is refurbished and pretty much awesome (very cheap laundry, good parking, piano in the flat, all utilities/phone/'net covered in the rent so no extra fees), and we're leaving end of December. (I'd stay, but I don't like to stay in one place too long and a friend had two of her roomies get married this month. Woo.)

It's on the corner of 200E and 600N in Provo, close to BYU campus if you need. Email khasut@gmail.com if you or somebody you know is interested or has questions. We need to sell right away. Thanks!
