That's how you know...

I decided to compile a list of my daily reminders that I am not originally from Utah.

1: I am 21 and not married.
2: I am okay with that.
3: I am a terrible driver... and I am still the best driver here.
4: I don't like fry sauce
5: This is how I dress at the end of July:

6: I am completely gangster. You may refer to #5 for proof.
7: I don't say "Oh my heck"
8: I can't whistle. That actually has nothing to do with Utah. I just thought it was strange.
9: I don't dye my hair blonde
10: I don't fake-bake. Not that that's strictly a Utah thing- but its more popular than M&M's. Which are really quite popular.
11: I hate snow.
12: I enjoy living in Utah (Utards who were born here tend to not appreciate it)
13: I don't look at people who pull up next to me in the car. Its just weird.
14: I really can't currently think of a 14th thing.. I just did not want to end this on an odd number. I hate odd numbers more than I hate snow.

I'm not saying anything, I'm just saying.

Sunday Hike

Tomorrow is the 4th of July. Today, Missa and I went hiking surrounded by snow. I'm still getting used to this Utah stuff, but I'm not complaining, today was a GORGEOUS day. Here's some pictures!

Oh, there you are, Sun!

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. -John Lubbock

These are pictures from mine and Missa's sunday hike. It was a beautiful day....a day worth blogging about.... A day where I BEAT Melissa in a foot-under-freezing-water competition! Let me tell you, it was brutal. But it was worth it. Story? oh yes, there's a story! It is this: Melissa bet me she could keep her feet under the freezing river water longer than I could. Of course, my competitive nature kicked in and I plummeted my feet into the bitter water and I won! Of course I won. Although she claims I only won because she knew I'd keep my feet there until they fell off, and she didn't want mom to blame her for my amputated feet. Whatever the reason, I won. And I am blogging about its glory.

Yes. That is the most exciting thing to happen to me all summer.. Why do you ask?

So, in honor of 4th of July, I included a slideshow of scenes from last 4th of July. Enjoy!

Summer Time!

This is Utah's idea of summer. Yes this picture was taken in June.

Disappointment prevails. Its okay, Utah! I haven't given up on you yet! I know the sun will come out (tomorrow?). Just to prove to myself (and fellow utards) that warmth and summer fun does exist somewhere out there, I'm posting video memories of last summer at mom and dad's house in Arizona! Love these guys <3

To be fair, Melissa and I did find a hike lower down that was not so covered in snow. Here's a picture from the top of Ensign Peak we took while hiking on Sunday.

And the winner is.....

Question posed: What is the # 1 most awesome thing that's happened to you since moving into your ghetto apartment?

Winning answer: Being locked inside my own room because the door handle broke.

What happened? Beats me. All I know is I woke up at 3:30 am and got all ready for work... but when the time came to leave, I couldn't even get out of my room! The handle just spun in circles. I tried everything I could think of (including taking pictures) and I just couldn't get it open. Luckily I have an awesome sister who works near here and has a key to my apartment. So she was able to come rescue me this morning! Thanks Melissa! <3

I really thought the shaking, smoking, fire spitting oven would win this title. But all it did was try to burn me alive..... Locking me inside my room was way more creative. Good job door. You earned this one!

In my only little corner, in my own little chair. I can be whatever I want to be!

Anyone else have Brandy stuck in their head now? No? Just me? Well alright. Check out my new apartment!
