Well everytime I think I am about to get rid of the blog I decide to update it. So here goes a fresh start again! 2010 was full of adventures and 2011 hasn't let me down.
I am still working for the art gallery. I LOVE it! This has been the best experience. I love having the hands on experience of running a business. Some day I will have my own. After 6 majors and a few semesters off I only have 2 classes left until I graduate. I can't believe it! I have already been to Las Vegas and to Seattle this year. I am planning a couple week trip to New York and DC in October and stoked about that. In february 4 days after my birthday I got in a car accident. I got to experience my first ambulance ride and had to wear a hideous neck brace for a week! That was fun let me tell you. After all of my car experiences last year I hoped this year would be smooth sailing but I am still dealing with the insurance mess four months later. At least it wasn't my fault so I don't have to worry about that. I guess the question most ask is NO I am not dating anyone. Haven't really met anyone worth while for quite some time so I am holding out for 30! HA! The youngest bro just graduated which makes me feel so old. The middle bro is going to graduate next year the same time as me because the University of Utah only holds graduation every spring. Weber State where Ben is has their ceremony a week before so technically he will be done before me as far as actually walking. He hasn't let me forget about it either! Well I think that is about all.

Two posts in one week! It is a miracle. As I looked back over my blog it was fun to remember the things I have done the past little while, so I am definitely going to try to do more, so I can reflect back. I know that nobody probably even reads this anymore.

This week with the midterm elections, I have thought alot about my beliefs and gratitude. We have the amazing privilege to live in a country where we have choice. Many times our vote won't affect the decision of the population, but we have a voice! In talking to Marko this week, we have many differences about politics, yet we both are able to talk and learn so much from each other. This is what makes this country so great and so blessed. That we can all have different perspectives, values, opinions, but if we all can open our minds to other opinions we can learn and have respect for one another. I am grateful for friends, freedom and the right to choose!

Halloween 2010

Well in the last few years I haven't done much as far as Halloween goes. There is always a party to attend, but very little effort put into the costume. Well this year, a few weeks before Halloween I had a dream and my costume came to me!

state fair

The State Fair was a blast. I worked the state fair as my part of my new job, we had a booth set up. This meant I got free tickets and we decided to take advantage of this! The corn slide is my favorite thing about the fair, but being able to walk around and see all of the interesting/crazy things is a riot!

Jordanelle State Park Camping

Well I didn't get any chances this summer to go camping so we went the week after labor day! Let me tell you, bad idea.... It was so freezing cold! We woke up and everything was frosted over. My allergies were a mess too. We camped up at Jordanelle State Park and it was great!

Rather than trying to catch up I am going to start with a post from today. My brother Ben turned 20 today and for his birthday he wanted to fish. My family camped last night at Soap Stone, and because of work I went and joined up with them this morning. We sat by the lake and fished and chatted and had a very relaxing Sunday afternoon. Don't mind Ben's nasty hair do, apparently he finally cut it all off tonight. Thank goodness.

Well we finally have internet in our new apartment so I can update the blog a bit. Pictures and more exciting things to come. I am currently living in the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake, which I love because it is in a very diverse area with lots of great shopping and restaurants. I live with Jane and we live in the basement of a house, and the lady who owns the house lives upstairs. I just got a new job working as a gallery manager at a local art studio. I am very excited for this new change and looking forward to this new adventure. School starts up again in 2 weeks! I am actually excited because the end is near.

So I am awful at blogging but I have been up to a lot of fun, and also a lot of school. Seeking to find the healthy balance between the two. January was a month of lots of fun! Rang in the new year at the Hyatt downtown. We stayed up late hot tubbing, playing games, watching movies and eating! Seriously the best way to spend new years eve!

Started out the year sledding with some Layton friends. What a blast! Enjoy the ridiculous videos!

Couple of weeks later two fun filled activities in the same weekend! Tara, Misha, and myself went up to park city to be a part of the sundance scene.

We had a blast. It was freezing cold so we hovered around a firepit to get warm. Little did we know this was the best place for us to go as we got to meet alot of fellas who wanted to get warm as well! We met two groups of guys. The one group were all egyptians and they were from LA. The one guy was even born in Saudi Arabia, kind of crazy. The other group we hung out the rest of the night with. They were so fun and so chill! We even went out last week.

Next day, we went snowshoeing up little cottonwood canyon to donut falls. Seriously so fun! I want to buy snowshoes and go every weekend!

Ice Skating

Well in my efforts to stay on top of posting I am actually posting something that happened this week. Marko is in town from DC right now, and we met up downtown Salt Lake for a night filled with christmas festivities. We went to the Olive Garden then went over to the Galivan Plaza for some fantastic ice skating. It was a lot of fun, but very tiring. Afterwards we walked around downtown and then went over to Temple Square to walk around the lights!
