Welcome Back to School

It may seem odd that I am just now getting ready to accept the fact that I am back to school. Unfortunately I have been a little reluctant to get on the Winter 2010 bandwagon. I think I officially jumped on this weekend, when I put most of my assignments into my planner and realized that I am actually going to have 'tests and projects'. Weird, I know- I thought that was just during Fall semester.
As many of the BYU students know, the Clyde building had no power Thursday-Friday. I had the ultimate pleasure of finding this out first hand.
I headed to my 9:30 class on Thursday, just having had a conversation about how I didn't really like the Clyde (no offense, I am just used to living in the Eyring) Anyway, I walk in and it was semi-dark and had a somewhat odd smell and thought- 'man I dislike this building more than I remember.' Needless to say it took walking up one flight of stairs until I realized that, yes indeed, the power was out.
Determined to go to class (yes I am such a good student) I went through the darkness to my class. I sat down with the majority of my class already there in the dark when the fire alarm went off. Whoever thought that strobe lights on a fire alarm was a good idea was seriously mistaken. It makes it 5000x harder to find your way. Anyway, I eventually made it out and class was cancelled. Made my day. I guess the Clyde is somewhat redeemed by providing me with a get out of class free card.

A weekend in the Sun?

So this weekend, I went to St. George, which is supposed to be warmer, right? Wrong. Well unless 42 degrees counts as warmer- Its under 50 which is still cold.
We stayed in this retirement village/towne/development-thing that was pretty nice. Each 'villa' had its own golf cart and like 45892523 pillows on each bed. Even with the clouds and cold weather, my sister and I insisted on driving the golf cart at every possible moment.

I ran a half marathon with my dad and sister, which was amazing, because we usually run the same race but not together. I also had the immense privilege of running with none other than the famous Professor Judd. Yup, we chit chatted it up for about a mile and he even asked me what grade I got in his class. I took the privilege upon myself to shout to the bystanders that he was a professor at BYU. I am not sure he thought it was as funny as I did.

Seriously though, St. George was so pretty because the air was clean and the snow on the mountains around the red rock gave a nice contrast.

I would have taken some pictures but unfortunately my camera was the only camera that made it to St. George and it was dead.

I'm not really sure how to end this blog thing... so I guess I'll just stop typing.

Okay. This has been a long time coming but after much persuasion I have decided to join the blogging world. I am a little skeptical about this whole thing but I guess I'll give it a shot. I would like to start with a shout out to Shannan and Annalise who encouraged me to join them in the 21st century. I guess that is all for now, but seriously, welcome me to the blogging world.
