wow. 4 more days. then i'll be back home after my first year of college. where did the time go? i can't believe it. a year ago i was freaking out because i didn't even know where i wanted to go, now a year has passed. it's been a good year, a year of fun , of trails and triumphs, a year of making new friends that will last forever, and missing old ones who will forever by in my heart <3.It has been a crazy year, a busy year, a year of laughing and crying, of loving, learning, making mistakes and growing. BYU is my home. I'm going to miss it, and although i love my family, i belong here right now. I am going to miss the friends i've made (some of whom i wont see for more than 2 years!), my ward, living in Wyview, i'm going to miss the spirit that is here at BYU, miss the beautiful campus, i'll even miss some of my classes....i'll miss everything that has become my life these past eight months. It has been a good year, and i wouldn’t trade it for anything :)

ewwwwe! the air here is soooo disgusting today! the weather is relatively nice...except there's wind, and so much grit, grime and garbage in the air that the wind just blows it all around, and makes it worse. when you walk outside, you can feel the grit blowing against your skin...yucky! the pictures show the difference between a normal day and today
so, i really enjoyed my walk around campue the other day, so i thought i'd put up some more cool pictures from it :) i found this cool tree, and the bark was crazy, it looked just like paper, and then there was this little daisy-ish flower....so i put my camera on the ground and shot up at it ( i was shooting into the sun, which is why theres a blue tinge, no, it's not photoshopped at all). i also love the fact that the mountains were reflected nicely in the JFSB, one of my favorite buildings on campus, and then of course! i love the beautiful tulip!

Oh! i forgot, how sad! near the beginning of the semester, the planter box we have in our apartment started blooming! it made me sooo happy to have a bright spot of color inside! and you know me....i love flowers anyway, and plus, they made a good photo subject...so here they are in all their beauty!

haha! so, being the clumsy person that i am, somehow i managed to hit myself in the back of the knee with my ski pole...and as the days pass, the bruise just keeps getting prettier and prettier! there's also a matching one, that's about three times the size, but not one i can take a picture of! lets just say it hurts to sit...ouch!oh yeah, in addition to these wounds, i also had sunburned eyes and lips! haha :) it was totally worth it though!
i'm tired. so so so tired. after pulling an allnighter the sunday night to finish up projects and assignments for the end of the term, i am still not caught up on sleep. it's 2:20 am, and yes, i'm still up becuase i've been registering for fall semester, registration opened up at midnight...so much for my plan to get to bed early. oh well, at least i can sleep in some tomorow. today was the last day of my first year of college..holy cow, that's insane....and tomorrow and thursday are reading days......ugh, that means finals are just around the corner. oh well, a few more days of studying and the endurance test will be over. i'll be free!!! well, at least from school......oh yeah. i'm also bummed. today i found out that i wasn't accepted into the department of visual arts....so apparently no photography major for me. oh well, i'll find something else, and my love for photograhy wont change.

on saturday, i went skiing with ben. we were going to go for his birthday, but it just hasn't worked out.....finally though, we were able to go. it was a beautiful day, we couldn't have asked for better skiing weather! the sun was out, we didn't have to wear big coats, and it was so warm, i took of my hat and almost took off my gloves and hoodie. the mountains were gorgeous! the bright white snow everywhere, the evergreens and the blue sky together were breathtaking. the snow was good for skiing, it hadn't gotten mushy yet from the sun. we went to alta for the free skiing on saturday, and got there early before the lift opened so we could teach ben to ski on the bunny hill. he did really good! i got up the courage to go on some jumps, they were just hills that went up and down, so i didn't jump, but i did go on them! then when the lift opened, we went up, and made four runs before it closed :) it was just all together a perfect experience!
