The Power Outage.

     Today was crazy.  Becca woke me up in a frenzy saying that there was a power outage.  Luckily we had cell phone alarms last night so we woke up.  The downside was we woke up to cold.  It's negative 15 today for the temperature and that didn't feel too good.  But, it wasn't too bad and we can't complain because our heat is back on.  Our FHE brothers heat won't come back on for another two days.  That's cold.  But, as a result of a city wide power outage, that meant some classes were canceled, and if you were a lucky ducky like my roommate, that meant that all your classes were canceled.  I only had to go to B.O.M. class today.  Which I can't complain about.
     This afternoon I worked on my Graphic Design (G.D.) homework today by taking pictures around campus.  I got SO many weird looks.  Everyone was thinking I was getting pictures of them and they thought I was nuts for going outside in a snowstorm for 3 hours to take pictures.  And honestly, I agree with them.  I really hope I start to feel more confident in this G.D. class and that I feel more excited by it.  I'm intimidated by it.  But, I signed up for it and I want to succeed!
     We went to the dunes saturday and it was so much fun!  I'll post some pictures later.  It was Jacob, Zach, Shelby, Taylor, McCall, Layne, Rebecca, and I went.  Along the way a little 8 year old boy Bryce friended us.  We had tubes and airboards and lotsa fun.  The guys we befriended are true gentlemen.  I like that they are our friends.
     Guess what?  Jake Cratty goes to school here!  We've been hanging out and it's been awesome.  I love seeing a familiar face and talking with him.  It totally made me feel a lot better being here knowing I knew someone!
     Tonight was FHE and we played apples to apples with our FHE brothers.  They're all for the most part pretty cool but, this one guy Macon (whose name rhymes with bacon) is absolutely awful.  Hopefully I can learn to like him a little better but so far it has been pretty hard.
     I have been feeling a little swamped but, I guess it's better than having nothing to do.  I can't wait to post some pictures but, for now I have some G.D. homework to do and some laundry to fold.  That's right mom, I did my laundry.  Be proud.

Hope you enjoyed your stay!


  1. " We had tubes and airboards and lotsa fun" I love that sentence!
    If people were giving you weird looks, just remember that Idaho is not as cultured as other places. Maybe they have never seen a camera before? :)

  2. I have to agree with Camille on this one! Sounds like you are having a blast!
