The Final Stretch...

Time is flying! I can’t believe Thanksgiving was already a few weeks ago. It was a fun trip too. I was in Provo for a few days where I got to spend some time with Mike, and Jordan before he heads off on his mission. The weather was really nice too. Carol and I drove up to Logan Wednesday afternoon. Upon arriving Erin, Russell, Alison and I went rock climbing at some indoor place. We laughed a lot, especially when Russell found a dead mouse in his rock-climbing shoes. Thanksgiving Day was spent indulge on all of Aunt Diane’s finest creations. That Friday we attended the Nutcracker Ballet. It’s a Lee family tradition. I had never seen the Nutcracker or a ballet for that matter so it was fun to get dressed up and go to the theater. I wish I had some pictures of the night. Saturday we played some kickball down at the park, did a little shopping, and ate at a Chinese Buffet. My roommate, Courtney, picked me up in Logan on her way up from Bountiful and stayed for dinner on Sunday. It was such a fun trip; I said if I had a car I would visit Logan more often. December has flown by. This is my last week of regular class, a few finals next week, and then I’ll be catching a flight to Atlanta. We had been shocked with how nice the weather has been in Rexburg lately. We’ve had no snow at all until late last night. I walked home from the testing center on Saturday in just a t-shirt. I just looked at the weather and it’s scheduled to snow for the next 10 days, so our good luck has been cut off. School work has been rather time consuming lately, but we have made a bit of time for a few social events. I went on a date about two weeks ago. We went up to Kelly Canyon and rode snowmobiles. It was a full moon so you could see everything perfectly. There were plenty of deer out there too. A week ago we attended an 80’s party. A large group of us were completely decked out, but when we got to the party there was barely anyone dressed up. Thursday night we went down to Pocatello for a concert (The Format, for anyone that cared). It was really good except the singer got hit in the face with a shoe and almost left. The best part of the night was when he said “HOW YOU DOIN’ BOISE STATE?!” and it was dead silent. Little did he know he was at ISU. Hahahaha. In other news, I ate a meal worm in my Biology Lab class. It was for 5 points extra credit. I could have eaten 20 of them if he hadn’t of put a 1 per person limit on it. They tasted like little french-fries. My roommate Nicole just got engaged on Wednesday. She hopes to have the wedding February 16, so there has been a mad scramble on making wedding plans and decisions. I have a few more finals and a talk to give on Sunday and then I am home free. I’ve been sending packages back to Georgia to myself, because I don’t think I will have room to fly out with all my belongings. Main street in Rexburg is completely covered with lights. It looks really pretty. Last night I ate my first dinner at the Galley. During this time of the semester everyone is trying to use up meal passes as fast as they can. Lucky for me I have a few guy friends in that situation. Anyway, I better get back to studying…
