I am finally home for the summer. I drove all the way Friday and Saturday. It feels so good to be done with finals, but a lot of my friends are gone, so it will be an interesting summer. I'm still trying to find a job... :( Here are a few pictures from my drive home. I think they are both taken in Missouri, so don't get too excited, I should have gotten some of the red rocks in Utah and Wyoming that were amazing!

BYU doesn't have spring break, and we only have two days off this entire semester. One of them this year was right after the prophet of our church died, and Brent and I were in Salt Lake so we decided to stop by and see his gravestone, and consequently we found a bunch of others of the old prophets. We also went to a planetarium that had fake moon and fake mars sets... Kinda interesting...That's about it for this semester, during basketball season we went to every home game as a break from studies and a few weekend ago, a nearby Hindu temple had this festival of colors where you throw around colored flour and everyone gets all colored. Kind of interesting, that's what they believe the Gods do to keep themselves happy and occupied.

Let me tell you, having a "Spur-of-the-Moment party" with a bunch of crazy friends is pretty awesome. This actually happened last month by the way. If you think these pictures are crazy, you should have seen it WITHOUT the camera. It was crazy. We played this game called the Sound Game. It was crazy awesome. Also, we played this game called Ghetto Land. (Well it was just a really old version of Candy Land). We also played twister and hung out with Pooh as you can see. Oh, who was there. Well, I was there obviously. Alec Garrett and Emma Bowan (scary Pooh picture), Nathan Garrett (the smaller lamp shade), Jacob Bowman (on the treadmill), and Marisa Aguirre. Oh, we also played Ya...which was turned into Oi for a while. That was a blast. Um...I'm trying to remember it all...oh yeah we watched some of the really dumb movies I've made an we ate No Bake cookies that I made. Jacob played Perfection (Anyone remember "POP! Goes Perfection!"?) Um...I think that's about it...but I've never had so much fun in my life...well, maybe not but I think you get the point.

Hmm.. for Valentine's Day my friends and I went and heart-attacked our bishopric (the three guys that lead our church in our area). We had to drive out to Spanish Fork (about 20 minutes away) to do it, but it was a lot of fun. It was like 11 at night so we were really quiet, but one of the bishop's kids came out of the house as we were trying to drive away. Brent didn't realize the car wasn't on so... we failed miserably while she stood there laughing.. :)

All right so if we are going little by little then I guess I better start with The Lady Pirates of Captain Bree. That was the Spring musical this year at Washington High School. I played George, a captive, and Admiral Moore of the British fleet. Since I get beat as Admiral the joke was Admiral No Moore. The musical went VERY well, although we were all very skeptical in the beginning. The story was about a group of lady pirates (imagine that) who capture a ship. The crew is afraid of them but we soon find our they are all talk and no action. It was a comedic musical with some romance and some really fun songs.
Ok, since I haven't written since the ancient days, I'm going to update little by little. Hmm.. I guess I should start at around Christmas since I haven't posted since like... October.. I went home for Christmas... It was a really nice break, and it was pretty nice outside as well. Mom and I went through some stuff of Grandma's since she moved to Maryland and she found the red clown nose. Dad found it too later. No, it was not a coordinated event. Kinda funny. I got my hair cut.. woo! Um... I don't have much else to say about christmas. I got a new computer because mine was about to blow up. It's huge though, a 17" laptop. I finally got a carrying bag for it this week after like... 4 months. Word of advice, if you get a laptop, it is impossible to get a carrying case for a 17" that is under like $80. So go for a little smaller :)
