Crazy week

Oh so much to tell. This week was a crazy week, I had an English final paper to write, a math test, and lots of other homework to get done before the end of the week. It was made a lot better when I got a package from my dad and brother. But the UPS guy wouldn’t leave it on the porch for some reason (we think it’s because it said compliance medical on it). When I did finally get it it was hard to open to say the least; you know those kind of packages. I played in a racquetball tournament on Wednesday night. Thursday I got my stitches out and went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter. And on Friday I was planning on going to bed early because I stayed up late Tuesday night, Wednesday night, and Thursday night and woke up early the next morning’s but then some friends came over and asked if we had flashlights because they wanted to go camping then my roommate, Desa, and I ended up just going with them. It was a blast even with the weather advisory. The tent was very loud in the wind but gratefully it didn’t snow or rain on us. I love spontaneous college adventures!
No more stitches!

The tent we all stayed in
I forgot to take pictures of us putting the tent up it was quite the sight. We (me, Kollin, Desa and Sarah) used my headlights so we could see and it was super windy so we had a hard time keeping it down while we were trying to figure out where the poles went but we got it up in the end.

Desa, Kollin, and Sarah
we went before the other group and set up the tent and got a fire started

A great week that ended not so great

This week started off great, I was caught up on my homework and I did something fun every night. On Monday I just did homework. On Tuesday I did a ton of homework and went to a jazz concert, it was really good.

On Wednesday it was snowing when we got back from cello lessons and a whole bunch of people from my apartment complex were going to play ultimate frisbee. We were playing with a white frisbee and it was way fun because the people who usually dominate were having a hard time because the snow and wind would carry the frisbee and everyone was sliding around.

On Thursday I did a ton of homework and went to see opera scenes, they were way good and pretty funny.

And on Friday I was going to end the week by going to see Inception and just hanging out with friends, well that’s not exactly what happened. I was all excited because the news said it was going to be in the 40’s so I decided to ride my bike to school. (It’s way easier to ride your bike, you don’t have to fight for a parking spot or park really far away from your classes and its cheaper.) So I put on a hoodie, gloves and my helmet (people always asked me why I wore a helmet to school, it’s not that far away and it’s not like it’s dangerous.) and got on my bike to ride to school. Well the apartment managers still haven’t turned off the sprinklers, I’m not sure why sprinklers need to be on when there’s 3” of snow on the grass, but they were. Well I noticed that the sidewalk looked icy so I went to stop to walk my bike past the ice, well I was on black ice that I couldn’t see and when I pulled my brakes I didn’t stop but my body was expecting me to stop and the bike slid out from underneath me and I think I hit my chin on the edge of the sidewalk and luckily I had my helmet on because it hit the edge of the sidewalk and now there is a small crack in my helmet, so that’s why I wear a helmet, because my head is not stronger than the icy sidewalk. I did still go to see Inception but then I just went home and watched some TV all wrapped up in a blanket then went to bed. And the worst part is that the news lied like all week so I didn’t ride my bike when I could have and Uncle Brad is coming to get grandpa this weekend so they are going to pick it up so it doesn’t sit outside all Christmas break. 
I took this with my phone to send to my dad to ask him what to do about it.

I took these friday night after getting home from Inception

Well 3 stiches and a tetnis shot later and this is what ya have.

Friday night Tyson and Michelle asked if I wanted to go play glow-stick hide and seek in some caves in St. George, at first I was skeptical, a cave doesn’t seem like the best place to run around. They told me it was perfectly safe and lots of people do it. I trusted them and went along and they were right. It was amazingly fun. We cut open glow-sticks and covered the walls with them and got it on us then we played hide and seek. It was so cool. Pictures wouldn’t turn out and we tried really hard to get them to, it’s one of those things you have to see in real life. You would close your eyes and count and when you opened them it was like no one else was in the cavern with you everyone blended in it was so cool. This has got to be one of the coolest adventures I’ve ever been on in college.
