This semester is loaded with not only a ton of school work, but a ton of activities. Big activities. Here are a few things I am looking forward to coming up in the next couple months.
If your LDS you know what I am referring to, if you aren't LDS you probably don't. In that case, it is a weekend that the leaders of our church (prophet, apostles, etc) speak to the members of the church. It is broadcast across the world from Salt Lake City, and I am going to two of the sessions in Salt Lake! It is amazing to be in the same room as these church leaders, and to listen to their words.
The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta:
Cave parties and hot pots:
Utah has a lot of outdoorsy stuff to offer. A couple friends of mine were telling me about this cave that people hike to, break glow sticks and spray the glowy stuff all over themselves and the wall, and play hide and seek. If you stand up against the wall people literally can't see you! As for the hot pots, there can't be anything better than swimming in a natural hot springs when the weather starts to cool off.
Last winter wasn't very... wintery. Also, it was dreadful. I was so sick of the cold and snow even though there wasn't that much. I felt really depressed with all the rainy/slushy weather. This winter I have decided to make the most of it by playing in the snow! I might even try skiing and snowboarding. I am excited for snowmen, snow angles, snowball fights, and sledding!
Thanksgiving in Arizona
My roommate Tabby and I are going to road trip down to the Tuscan area to meet up with some friends for Thanksgiving dinner. They will be showing us around Tuscan, Phoenix, and some other places. I am especially excited because I have only been in the Arizona airport for a layover. I am also excited to see the grand canyon (please Tabby?!)
My Texas friends and I have been talking about a trip to Idaho to visit more Texas friends. I don't know when this will be happening... but it will be happening.
What are you looking forward to?
