Each week seems to be getting better and better. I am learning a little more about myself and about everything around me. For example, I learned that I am partially color blind. Full Story: I was was work and I thought I was wearing green pants to work and they were really brown. This was not the first time I had messed up with my color coordination, so we “googled-it” and I found this website:
One my co-workers asked me what numbers I saw in each circle. Well… I failed. There are some circles that did not have numbers in them. After some review, I learned that I am partially “red-green” colorblind. I have also gone to other websites to test myself. Sad day.
I’m not really sad, because it has been a fun week. It was nice and sunny everyday until today when it started raining. Quick overview of last week:
Tuesday – Date: we went and saw Disney’s Cars. I was very impressed with the movie and hope to purchase a copy of it. Four girls with two guys. Fun stuff.
Wednesday – Sports: I got a whole bunch of people together and we played Ultimate Frisbee for a few hours in the beautiful fall afternoon.
Thursday – BYU Football game party at our apartment. BYU won which was amazing and then we watched a popular TV show called “the Office.” Then we hiked the Y and then came back and watched more of “the office” but Season 2, which was downloaded using iTunes. I managed to do some homework that night also.
Friday – Mission Reunion in Provo. Many people from the Honduras San Pedro Sula (and previously) Belize Mission got together and we had a great time visiting.
Saturday – General Conference. I went to Salt Lake City to attend General Conference with Liz. We had fantastic seats and then we went out for a great Italian lunch. Came back to Provo for the afternoon and evening sessions and then we went to the BYU girls soccer game and we got some girls to go with us and then we went out to eat afterward.
Sunday – General Conference. I went to Salt Lake City with Kristin and we got fantastic tickets once again and enjoyed some inspiring discourses from leaders of the Church. Came back to Provo and enjoyed the evening with some friends.
Monday – Family Home Evening. We got together tonight and played a really fun name type game and Mike, my roommate, made some really good peach cobbler to share. ( He also made some really good stake burritos for dinner for the two of us.)
There are a million other things that are also going on like midterms and studying, but I will save those for an other day. I have three midterms this week and one more next week in economics. School is going well at the moment and I will report after the tests are graded.
There are some cool pictures I want to share:
Soccer Game – a date to the soccer game
Soccer Girl – throwing the ball
Pizza – food after the soccer game
Temple – the Salt Lake LDS Temple
Clean Apartment – we had cleaning checks today and our apartment was the cleanest.
Activity – We watched the BYU football game, watched the Office and then hiked the Y.
General Conference – Liz and I after general conference with the temple in the background.
Hiking – another fun trip to the top of the Y. We got attacked by a military helicopter.
Quick note about taking pictures. Many of my friends have been making fun of my excessive photo taking. I want to add the fact that they make fun of me and then at the end of the night they ask if I can email them copies! Go take your own pictures! (I’m not that mean though)
Have a great week and hope that everyone is doing well. I think of you often and hope to hear from you soon. (If you don’t want to get these little updates… Please tell me.)
