My Idol

Jane Bennet. She is my idol. She is the sweetest and kindest of the Bennet sisters, and I wish I was just like her. Instead, I think I take after this character:

Yep, loud and obnoxious Mrs. Bennet. We have a lot in common. We both like to complain (though we'll never admit it), we're easily offended, and quick with our retorts, and we both expect too much out of life.

This is completely off topic, but I found it pretty funny:

Oh Hipsters... They drive me nuts. And Provo is completely saturated with them.

In other news... I'm leaving for Philmont in 41 days. I'm so excited! Did I mention that Jenna got hired as well? She'll be working at Dean Cow, which is a rock climbing camp. She'll have running water, showers, probably and oven, guaranteed rides to and from base camp, and she'll probably have cell phone reception, too. I'm excited for Whiteman Vega, but showers sure do sound nice. I'm a little jealous :)

Happy Easter, everyone :)

No longer a teenager

I am no longer a teenager... unless I live for another 93 years, as Gared pointed out yesterday.

This birthday was one of the most chill, perfect birthdays I have ever had. I worked for a couple hours, treated myself to a waffle, went hot tubbing with Jenna, ate free chic-fil-a for my birthday dinner, and stayed up with the roommates watching TV. It was great!
Also, it was 74 degrees yesterday. Best. Birthday. Present. Ever. 

This present was pretty awesome, too, I must admit. Jenna knows me well!

Today I had an appointment with the doc to get my knee checked out, which has been bothering me for the past few weeks. I slipped on my Grandma's tile stairs back in January, and banged it up pretty good. They took a couple x-rays, and he said that everything looked great! Which means... I have the go ahead to work at Philmont this summer!

I was offered a job at Whiteman Vega, the mountain biking camp. That was my DREAM last summer, but unfortunately, school would not allow me to go. E…

California Dreamin'

I finished my hours this weekend. I'm done with school. I can't believe I'm done with school! To celebrate, four other classmates and I took a graduation trip to LA.
 Boy was that a long drive. It took us about 10 hours to get there!

 We stopped in Las Vegas just long enough to catch a fountain show at the Bellagio, eat Serendipity's, and do a little shopping.

Saturday morning we went to The Makeup Show in LA. No joke, that's the name of the show. There were tons of vendors, and we stocked up on some super inexpensive makeup. We also watched a few demos, this tree girl was my favorite. They were still working on her after we left. It must have taken hours!

 After the makeup show, we strolled down the Walk of Fame and snapped a few pictures with our favorite stars.

We were typical LA tourists. We saw the Chinese theater, did a lot of shopping, went and viewed the Hollywood sign, took tons of pictures, the usual.

Sunday was our Disneyland day. I hadn't been t…
