Longest day ever

So in addition to the video I wanted to give you a little summary of my day. I got up at 6 AM to drive my mom to the airport so she can go home to Japan. That means I was up bright and early for my first day of classes. I've been emailing the CE department tons over the summer, so when I went in this morning to sign up for my last 2 classes, the secretary upon hearing my name says "Oh, I know exactly who you are." I had 4 classes today: hydrology, reinforced concrete design, intro to transportation engineering, and senior design. I'm excited to be able to design a steel bridge in our senior design class for Rocky Mountain Conference, which is an annual competion between schools in the rocky mountain area. I'm really stoked about that. All my classes were fine today, and I think I'll be okay this semester. I have one class tomorrow, Bridge Design, which should be really interesting and hopefully not too hard. Then Dave wanted me to go get this new book for him at the midnight release at the BYU Bookstore. So essentially I've been up for 19 hours at this point, although I did take a light nap in the middle of the day. Either way, it was a long long day.

Crappy Presentation

Here is my presentation of my analytical report for my english 316 class. since i'm taking it independent study, i just had to record the report to turn it in. for some reason dave thought this would be better than a vlog today. you are in no way obligated to watch this video tho, it will probably bore you.

Eat Pray Love

We had little trouble recording at the beginning of the video, hence the strange discussion.

P.S. Happy Anniversary to Ann and Gary Dunn!

Catalina Diving!!

We took a day to go over to Catalina Island, which is about an hour east of shore by boat. It's a pretty big tourist destination, especially for SCUBA divers. The giant kelp grows there, so it's teeming with life. We got to see lots of fish on our dive, including a few Bat Rays. The giant sea bass were in town, but we didn't' get to see any, which I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad about. The bass are 2 or 3 times the size of a person! Crazy. I'm not big on fish, so that's why I'm not too upset about it. BUt we had a good time and ended up getting a little sunburn unawares because it was such a cool day. Oops!

Sparks, Friends, and Screaming

It was fun to be able to take Kristi, Jon and my parents to a Sparks game down at the Staples Center. We were lucky enough to get seats in front of 2 or 3 screaming little girls, who I'm sure were just there to cheer and don't really care about basketball. Although I commend them for their diligence and team spirit, they really need to practice cheering with everyone else. So every time it gets really noisy or the yells of "defense!" are off, please know that it is them, and not us. The Sparks won this game 88-72 edit by David: final score was 82-77, although it was a close back and forth game the whole time. We took a little walk through LA Live afterward. We hung out over at the Toyota thing you see at the end. They had a decked out Sienna van in there with reclining middle seats, complete with footrests. It had video screens in front and back where they were playing the "Swagger Wagon" video (youtube it if you haven't seen it). The seats in back fold down into the ground with the touch of a button. It was a pretty sweet van, I have to admit. All in all, it was a great night!

Family Game Night

My family loves skip-bo, so we pulled it out while they were here. What better way to spend a Sunday? We played 4 games and we each won one, so it was great. I'm wearing my new dress that I bought with my birthday money. I got another dress too, that I'll probably wear next week for you all to see. It was a fun night.
