Here's my last 2 semesters in a nutshell:
This is a recent one of me and my roomies. Notice that they are all tall, blonde, and blue-eyed. I look like the adopted child. Nice tree in the background though...turns out spring DOES eventually beat out winter in that place.
This is the statue on campus. THE statue. Her name is Sharwan Smith, and she's about as famous as Chuck Norris up there. Turns out this sweet vest i bought at DI (and altered by hand to fit myself...applause, applause) matched the one she always wore. So i took this picture. One time i found 2-dollar rollerblades at DI and rode through this very building on my way to work. Maybe activities like that is what earns me fancy trophies...
These are some of my best friends. We went hiking. We got all wet about 30 min after this picture was taken. Notice that half of them own sandals like mine...And the majority of my Chaco-owning friends weren't even there for this. Then i came back to Gilbert and nobody knew what my sandals were.....but i was cool and stylish, once upon a time. That shirt is also 16 years old...that is not an exaggeration. Thank you androo.
And last but certainly not least, this is my Frisbee team. I wish i had a picture of our whole team....there's like 20 of us or so. You can see all three girls right here in this picture...we like to think we are awesome for playing on a team full of boys. This picture is at a tournament in Salt Lake...notice the large object in the background. (Family, that is called a "mountain." Try it..."mown-tun". On top of that mountain is what we call "snow." And in the sky is what we call "clouds" and "lack of sun.") Outside of work and school and more work, Ultimate Frisbee is what could define this last year for me. I played like 3 times a week, in rain or sleet or 4 feet of snow. All my best friends i made this year were on the team, so that motivated me to keep playing through such frozen conditions. Plus it made me feel hardcore to wear that shirt around campus. Someday i will play again...someday when the heat won't threaten my life if i run around too much.
My roommates again. This is us winning the ward talent show. It involved an instrumental version of Colors of the Wind and interpretive dancing and poetry recitations. And, of course, me laughing through the entire thing and forgetting my lines.
