Josephine County Fair 2010

I finally went to Fair for the first time in a few years. I tagged along with Randy and Kelsey, and was even treated to an armband so I could ride rides with Kels. We tried pretty much everything except the kiddie rides, even the stop drop ride which was kind of terrifying. I had a bunch of fun though, although my feet were sore the next day. :)

Summer 2010

This has been one of the most boring Summers I have had in a long while. I've been taking classes this term, which is crazy because I know I can't concentrate at all. Hopefully I am able to crack down and pass the three I am taking, especially math. I have a 59% or something right now and I need at least a 69.5%. I still have two more tests and lots of homework left, so I am going to try really hard to study and stay on task. For my technical writing class I have to write a 1,000 word research paper. My topic is planetary exploration and the benefits to society. I've started it and created an outline, but I need to do actual research now.

Besides that, there has been some family drama. Nothing new there though; It is always something. Life isn't too bad, just always shifting. New layers of life appear as others peel away. I'm trying to stay upbeat about my future. It can be daunting sometimes thinking (more dwelling) about what might happen. I have goals and dreams, and all I can do is try to reach them.

Spring Break 2010

Winter term ended last week, so this week is Spring Break. That doesn't really mean much to me though, since I still have to work. I did get a chance to hang out with Gabe, Sonya and Allen so far. Sonya and I went to Gabe's for dinner and a movie on Monday. Gabey made a very yummy meal, consisting of orange chicken, rice and vegetables. We also sampled alcohol and made margaritas. Then Tuesday night I went to Applebee's with Gabe and Allen, then we came back to my apartment and watched "Sum of All Fears".

Classes start Monday. I have class Monday through Thursday. Fun. Tomorrow is a free day, except for work until noon. Maybe I will get some stuff done. :)

Trip to Portland!

Yesterday I drove to Portland in my 1987 Nissan Maxima for the first time! I wasn't entirely sure she was going to make it, but she ran great. I am visiting mt friends Amanda and AJ for the first time in their new apartment and we (mainly Amanda and I) are going to have an Oscar party tomorrow night!

Right now I am waiting for her to finish getting ready so we can go shopping! :)

A Sunny Day Is A Gift

Wow, I can't believe it is already February. It seems like the new year is flying by. My nephew, Braydon, is going to be turning 1 year old in April. It seemed like he was born yesterday.

Today was a beautiful sunny day. So beautiful, in fact, that I washed my car. It might not sound like a monumental event but believe me, IT IS.

I've been watching The Olympics lately, and have gotten quite addicted. Last night's coverage was SO intense. Lindsey Vonn won gold after some massive crashes by the other women skiers and on an injured shin. Then, Shuan White pulled a massive trick to win gold on the half pipe. AMAZING.
