These are happy days

I composed a blog post in the shower the other day. The issue is that I don't even remember the topic anymore. Shame. It was probably brilliant.

Like this one time I had a dream that I was writing a song and my actual self - not my dream self- was aware of how bomb the lyrics were, but they were gone when I woke up. I still remember they had something to do with Shakespeare, but I don't remember the full brilliance.

Usually periods of blogging absence like this mean that my life has lost its interest. It means that I am not doing anything worth writing about, that there are no events I think would interest the world.

This time it is different. This time my life has been filled with so many amazing people, places, and things that by the time my head hits the pillow at night I am out before I pull the covers up. I am learning so many things in my schooling that my mind is going one hundred miles per minute every minute of the day. The things they have been telling me for years are finally fitting together and my interest in my major has increased ten fold. I find myself devouring my readings, writing my papers mentally as I walk home, and sitting in one place for hours with only my notes for company.

The most beautiful thing is that there is always extra time after my studies. I always have a minute to laugh with my roommates and see all the people I love. I have found time to do the things I really want to do, and I love it. I am loving my life. 

In an attempt to give you some visual stimulation and mostly to record my life, here is a peak into the things I have been doing.
I sent my parents off to Africa where they will be living for the next year. What adventurers :)
After a 10% discount, I spent just shy of 1,000 dollars on textbooks.
I went down the Provo river on an inflatable mattress. More details to come on this one. It's a story worth knowing.

Pinterest food. I'm no food photographer, but trust me when I say this stuff was awesome
Football. Try not to have a heart attack when I tell you I've been to both games.
Jennie and I finally got our room put together and feeling like home
This has become my second home inside of my home.
This guy. I've been spending copious amounts of time with this guy.
Now go do something that makes you happy, and then tell me about it in the comments :)
