Like woah.

Where did the time go? Are you seriously telling me there are only 25 days till Christmas? Say what? No... I don't believe you. That means... 19 days till the semester ends. My oh my. I'm getting nervous over here!

Lets's see.

I made it back to Utah. After many many hours of driving.  So many hours in fact I may have bruised my hands.  Given it was a freaking blizzard outside I feel lucky to have made it in one piece.  Nuff said about that. 

It's currently -5 degrees outside. I think I am going to call this post to an end. Unless there is anything else I can think of...

I heading home today! Wish me luck as I drive. In the snow.

While there is a blizzard warning.
This will be an adventure.

At least my friend Lisa is coming with me so I won't have to face I-84 all alone. Hooray. Time to go in ten minutes!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

Snow Day!

Guess what?!?! It's snowing outside! I'm super excited for the snow because that means I will be able to ski soon & I'm also super excited because I only have one class tomorrow and then I get to go home for Thanksgiving! But, admittedly I'm a little nervous because the roads don't look fun to drive on. And since it's a rather long drive on potentially rather poor road conditions I'm a little nervous.  At least my truck has 4-wheel drive...

So I'm sitting here at 7:30am. Posting on my blog.

Watching the snow fall from the sky. And it's really beautiful. And wet.

Do you know what awesome things I did this weekend?

 Well not a lot. But I did complete a 10 page (!) research paper with my partner Shawna. We are totally awesome like that!  And it was her birthday on Saturday so I made her a flower hair clip. And a cheesy card. With a horse on it.  =)

I also managed to start working on my economics "stuff."  Aka things I need to know for my test tomorrow morning before I leave.  (I should make sure to get to bed extra early tonight!) Hopefully it shouldn't be too bad.  I have a lot to do today though besides studying for it.  Like finishing a presentation PowerPoint for my wildland behavior class. It'll be a cool slideshow because I am usually all of my own pictures. Why not? After all our management issue is horse and packstock impact in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. And since that's where I live and work it would only make logical sense.

Oh and I think I totally look cute today. Grey snow boots, skinny jeans, cute sweater and awesome purple scarf. Yup. Good clothing day.  Possibly a good hair day too.

Well, I do believe this is all I have to write at the moment. So I'm going to finish my chocolate milk now. The breakfast of champions. (JK. But really...)

Spamming + Snow

Today is a day for spamming my blog with posts. I just realized how terribly hypocritical I am.

In all things (it seems...).  Like the fact that I love summer and warmth and hate the cold yet... I love to skiSo, while I would love the white fluffy stuff to fall from the sky, I would love the sun to shine again. Therefore I have determined that this whole "going to Australia thing" will work out perfectly.

School there doesn't start until late February. This means that I can spend all of January on the mountain with my skis then suddenly jump on a plane and land in summertime. Life will be fabulous. Do you know what is also perplexing? Homework. Most of all my economics homework. Sometimes my statistics homework. But never homework for my major. Just saying.  I'm definitely meant to spend 99.9% of my time living and working in the outdoors.

I miss being outside. That's why I love homeI can spend all of my time outside with my horses and my dog, Scout.


 I love weekends! Especially when they involve: basketball, friends, and ice-cream.

I cleaned the Sink at Angie's for the first time!  From left to right Jen (Jill's lovely twin), me, Alexis, Jill, and Jill's boyfriend Brian.

Hooray for fun!  I also accomplished watching all of the Harry Potter movies. In case you didn't know, Harry Potter comes out Thursday - the 19th! Call me a wand waving nerd, but I'm kinda excited to go!

Let's see...  I also bought  new pair skis! I'll post a picture of them tomorrow.

Branded and Bowling

Today in my English class we talked about branding.
Not like cattle branding... but advertising branding.

And guess what I discovered.  Apple... you have branded me.  Something about seeing that little apple light up seems to make me happy. Silly I know! But it is true.

Macbook Pro         

But I love it. I wouldn't want anything else. Confession: I don't actually have an iPhone, but they look awesome. Verizon, you should hurry about and get the iPhone.  Thanks.

Any who...

Not much else happened today. I ripped my fingernail off while bowling. Talent, I know! But bowling is awesome. Especially when it's one of your classes!

Wish it would get warm. (Hooray for going to the southern hemisphere shortly!)

By the way, I have a brain freeze. But that's from ice-cream. Not the cold weather.

The Start of Something New

Oh yes. Star Trek. Great movie, especially if you're watching it with friends. If you haven't seen the movie I suggest watching. It's witty, funny, action-packed, and has great special effects. Yes. Go watch it. Much like the ship Enterprise, this is my maiden voyage in blogging.

I think I am going to enjoy this whole blogging thing.

 I enjoy it. I hope you do to.

I'm funny (I hope...), crazy, adventuresome, always lookin' for a good time.  I'm a country girl. Born and raised. I love to explore. Learn. I  ♥ nature.
              I am from Oregon.
                               Going to Utah State University.
                                              And soon to go to Southern Cross University in Australia.

So, I think I will call this a successful first post. Perhaps I will go back to work now. By the way... Life is good.
