growing up.

think back to 4th grade. remember when you got the highest score on that one test and everybody hated you because of it? not just hate like be jealous. hate like whenever you walked into a room everyone would stop talking and look at you and then someone would say some stupid comment like: "way to ruin our curve. wait you didn't just ruin it, you stomped on it, spit on it, and threw dirt on it," or "what did you get on your other test? what? i got better than you? oh my gosh, i finally beat you at something."

wait, was that 4th grade? or was it 1st grade? no, it was when you were in your Doctorate program for Physical Therapy.

weird how some people are never able to grow up.

pleased to meet you. soon.

Keys to getting me through the end of the semester:
  • watch this video and many like it
  • go mountain biking at least 3 times a week instead of studying
  • plan our trip to the McKenzie River Trail

McKenzie River Trail, we look forward to meeting you
and the entire state of Oregon over labor day.
thank you for the motivation you give me.

summer thunderstorms

i love thunderstorms in the summer
because the dry Utah heat leaves and is replaced by warm raindrops.
because it reminds me of when i was a kid and always played in the huge puddles by my house.
because listening to the thunder is more exciting than studying.
because it reminds me that i have still never been to Washington and i still really want to go.
because it reminds me of playing in the rain with jake the summer before he moved away to college and then his mission.
because i still drop everything i am doing just to go run around in it again.

But i don't like Utah thunderstorms because by the time I have dropped everything to go play, the storm has stopped.
