My Birthday

I'm a few days late getting these posted but my birthday was on Saturday. The fam and I went up to Snowbird to play. It was a great day!! I had so much fun! It's hard to believe I'm actually 20 now though. I'm like, "hey, wait. I'm all grown up!"

4 more days!

My favorite show in the whole wide world, The Office, premiers on Thursday. I'm SO excited. I watched all the previews on nbc.com and I just can't even stand it I'm so anxious. The season finale was the ultimate cliffhanger (Kudos to the writers, you came back strong!) so I'm interested to see how things are going to play out this season. If y'all need to get in touch with me on Thursday night, don't bother because I'm going to be planted in front of the TV watching The Office.

Dear Mr. Obama

Ok so I haven't quite figured out how to post the actual video from youtube so you'll have to click on the link for it. It's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG4fe9GlWS8 This is a video that was sent to me in an email and I think it carries with it a powerful message. I'm certain there have been times for us all when we've either publicly or privately cursed the war. Whatever our motives are, we would do well to remember that it's not just another political battle. Sons and daughters of our friends and neighbors are out there fighting for the freedom of this country, as well as the Iraqi people. I think the text at the end sums it up best
"The day we lose our will to fight is the day we lose our freedom."

I'm going to Peru!

So here's the story. I talked to Dr. Rollings, the anatomy and physiology teacher at SLCC, who happens to be the president of the Tropical Pathology and Infectious Disease Association (TPIDA for short). He takes students on medical trips to Peru five times a year. Students who go get to participate in actual medical procedures. Things as varied as treating Malaria to delivering babies. Dr. Rollings called me yesterday and invited me to go on the trip with him in June! Are you kidding me? I can't even believe it! I'm a little nervous about it at this point but SO excited! Doing humanitarian service is something I've always been looking forward to once I become a nurse but I never thought I would be able to go now. I'm so so so thankful for this amazing opportunity I've been given to have this adventure. I can't wait!
