March 31, 2010

Okay, last week was the most stressful week I have endured yet at college. In fact, it was so stressful that somebody asked me what was wrong last week and I could not remember a single thing. The entire week is blank. I do remember that one day my immune system gave out and I spent 2 hours wanting to die in my Spanish Lab and Spanish class and then I called in sick to work and went home. In total I slept for about 22 hours that day. Saturday I was so weak and tired that all I could do in Jujitsu was curl up in a corner and try to meditate. Sunday...yeah, another blank. Monday felt like vacation. I only have 4 papers due this week, two of which were turned in this morning. Work is very busy it being conference time but nothing can be worse than the "week of blank" as my bosses called it. All I know is that I have 20 more days until I am done with class and finals. YAY! And I get to come visit California for a little this summer. Woot!

New York Pictures

New York 2003: Note, captions are below the images

Hello everyone. I am finally posting pictures...most of them from my visit to New York when I was 13. Above is a picture of me in where they originally printed the Book of Mormon
The printing house is now built within another building and here is me knocking on the door of the original building.
The rebuilt the Log House and here is where Joseph Smith's bed was and where Moroni appeared.
Here is the printing press. At the time I was enamored with the machines because I had done a report on Johannes Gutenberg so whenever Wendy and I went to a place that had a printing press she always showed it to me.

Wendy in the Frame House
The Sacred Grove

And below are some perspective shots that Wendy, James, and I did for fun

And a last one, one of my favorites


The funny thing is that James very well could have given me a boost like that, at my full size

Crazy Week

Oh my goodness, this week has been absolutely insane. I have been taking test after test after test and I have a 12 page research paper due next Friday. I just got my prospectus back a few days ago and now I have to narrow my topic. The problem is that I have to stick with the Inca's because of all the research I have done when I really want to switch to the Aztecs. The problem with my major is that each paper has to contribute something new, some new interpretation, that hasn't been done before. I think I will stick with the economic superiority of the Incas over the Spaniards in spite of the complete lack of outside trade.

As far as everything else, I have taken 6 tests in 2 weeks and managed to get A's on all of them while keeping working extra hours at work and keeping up with jujitsu. I thought that I had everything under control until I was thrown a major curve ball this Wednesday. Not that dating my best friend is a bad thing...in fact, it is a great thing. Thank goodness the semester will be over in about a month though because that way I can replace school with a second job and have more free time. Well, that is my life. Found my camera chord, now I am looking for my camera.
