Happy Days

Thanks to advanced preparation, and a twist in my day, I'm sitting on the 5th floor of the library with nothing to do. Shocking, I know, but true nonetheless. I've been told that this semester is down to a whopping 14 days (not to include finals). Why is it that the older you get, the faster time seems to fly? Thinking back to freshman year, the semesters seemed to drag on and on. Now, here I am a Senior, and I feel like I just had my first day of school. Can there really be only two weeks left in the semester? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was a freshman up at BYU-Idaho, feeling lost in a crowd of only 10,000? And now I'm a Senior at BYU feeling at home in a crowd of 33,000. Complacency, it's a wonderful thing.

I've decided there are a few things I still need to do while I'm at BYU, and they are:
1. Visit ALL of the buildings on campus
2. Run to the Y
3. Go to the Bean Museum
4. Get asked out in the Periodical section (jokingly of course)

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment, but feel free to add to the list!

Goodbye Provo, Hello Real World

It's funny how a simple phone call can change the mood of someones day, and the path of someones life. And just today, at 10:02 this morning, I received that simple phone call. The tears of fear, the anxious feeling stuck in the pit of my stomach, and all of those sleepless nights of wonder, can now disappear. The east coast, a place where I was once told I don't fit in, will soon be my home for the next four months. Goodbye college, hello American Diabetes Association. I've finally landed my first internship in Washington D.C.!
