I'm Getting Old and Senile

The older I get the more it seems like I forget things, I feel like Alzheimer's is kicking in early... However, one thing I can't forget is how sweet my grandpa is. Ever since I was little he would always play with me, I blame him for my love of sports.

Saturday I got to spend some much needed time with him before going out on a date. We headed over to the bowling alley and did his most favorite thing in the world: play some pool. He is about half the size of the pool table but boy is he good at it. I remember playing with him when I was younger, I had no idea what I was doing. Last year I played pool almost every single day on campus with some friends, so when I took my first shot on Saturday my grandpa was pleasantly surprised that I could put up a fight. One large pizza, a bag of chips and 3 hours later, my grandpa and I walked out of the bowling alley happy as clams.

I love my grandpa, I am so grateful for all he does for us.

I know it's a little blurry but it was too cute not to put up.

So I have this little problem with spitting. Ever since I had my sinus infection (and possibly before..hehe) I've been spitting left and right. Specially because of all the running I do, my lungs get all nasty and I have to spit. For those of you who have seen "She's the Man" know of that little scene where Amanda Bynes spits and it hangs off her chin.. Long story short, I did the same thing.

People laughed. That's all I have to say about this. So thank you Amanda for making me feel really cool for a split second, right before I realized people have seen.. ouch.

My hopes for becoming cool have gone down the drain. I'm losing points quick. So long as I don't walk out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck on my shoe or in my pants I'm good for a while longer.

Quick Little Tid-Bit

Thanks to all of those who came and supported the UVU Women's Lacrosse team last night at the Water Garden's theater, it was really appreciated. We had about 65-70 people turn up, that's almost $200 dollars for our team! It was a very fun and successful evening, Let's get more of these rolling!

The girls (minus Jorie, she was watching a movie)

Look at us representing our team! Woot woot! A few other highlights from the evening:

Time To Catch Up!

What is this? Third week of school? Yeah, definitely time for an update...

This semester has started out rough but I am very excited to see where it goes. I didn't think I was going to be able to go to school but I am lucky I have grandparents who love me and want to help out. Their support is appreciated, and an answer to many, many prayers.

I was super stressed about not being able to go to school for a couple reasons. First, I would have absolutely nothing to do and second, I have fallen in love with lacrosse. In order for me to play I had to be a full-time student, I had already payed some of my dues and been to every practice. Luckily my grandparents stepped in and saved the day. Now I am at a solid 15 credits with ethics and values, human development, dance conditioning, interpersonal communications and a couple institute classes. And most importantly getting to play lacrosse.

Last week as a team we got to man the club rush booth and a table by the bookstore in search for some new recruits. I made shirts for most of the girls on the team (some which I still haven't finished..), ate lots of candy and made some flyers for our upcoming fundraiser. Very VERY busy week but definitely worth it.

Yes, my fingers are in fact still green and yellow.. shirts turned out pretty dope.

Friday night brought the Vegas themed dance at Noah's. That was definitely an interesting experience. I had a lot of fun though, my lacrosse buddies are CRAZY.


Saturday brought the greatest practice of my life. Good ol' Utah has issues managing weather... Practice was held outside in the middle of a slush storm. At first it was rain, then it was snow and then back again. Whatever it was, We (mostly me actually..) had a blast.

My bestest lax buddies. Too bad you can't tell how soaked we are...

We are hoping people come out and support tomorrow. As a team we would really like to go far and in order to do that we need all the support we can get. We finally found a goalie, that puts us one step closer to having a full team. 

I am very content with the way things are working out. I am working hard in school and running my tush off at practices. This should be the best semester yet!
