Time Warp and Rainy Smell

College is a time warp I swear. All of a sudden it's the 26th, I haven't posted in three weeks, and it feels like yesterday was a week ago Sunday. Anyway, my life has been the usual: school, work, not much of a social life the past few weeks because of tests and the like. Classes end in a little more than 3 weeks (!@#$*&) and then Dad is going to drive over and help me move out. After this week, I should be set until finals. I took my second American Heritage test on Monday, wrote an English paper Tuesday, had a dance test Thursday, been working on a group newsletter project in print publishing, and I took my third Book of Mormon test on Friday. Phew.

In a different vein, I've loved the nice weather!! I've been wearing capris and skirts and sandals and I love how it feels like spring! When I walk back to the dorms I see blankets spread out all over the grass with people sunbathing, playing games, studying, cuddling (a bit uncomfortable for me sometimes), and then there are the three or four groups tossing a frisbee around. The one odd thing about this though--it is most perplexing--is that all of a sudden, the girls seem to think it's okay to strut around in tiny tank tops and underwear shorts. I know--go figure. In sacrament meeting our bishopbric reiterated the importance of and the still-present Honor Code and I did notice a difference last week. Last Wednesday it was so nice because it was kind of rainy for part of the day and every time I went outside I could smell the rain and the air had that crisp feel about it. I loved it!! Rain is by far the best weather ever.

The weekend was super nice and I got a chance to just crash after such a hectic week. I watched a bunch of "24" on Friday and on Saturday I slept in a bit, showered, did a bit of homework, went to the Panda Express with Katelyn for lunch, headed up to campus and spent a while in the card aisle in the Bookstore, worked with my publishing group, went to Target with Jessie, and then headed to the Vocal Point concert! I'm glad I was so productive and was still able to feel relaxed and at ease. The Vocal Point concert was AWESOME (like the last one!). They did their primary song medley and at one point in the number had the whole audience doing the motions to "Do As I'm Doing"--so much fun! It was a long concert (a little over 2 hours), but I was having so much fun I didn't even notice!

Once again I finish this post almost a week after I started (requiring some information changing ie-I am taking my Book of Mormon test to I did take my Book of Mormon test). Oh well, I'm glad I actually finished it. Hopefully I can be a bit better now that school is taking a bit of a breather for me. So glad I can catch my breath!

You've got a lot going on, but you sound good. I can't believe the semester is almost over! Wow. I remember what campus looks like in the spring and how everyone camps out on the lawns doing all the things you said. I'm always disturbed by how BYU girls can think it's okay to dress skanky like that, and I'm equally disturbed by the boys that like them for it. They're obviously on the wrong campus!

What? Since when do girls dress like that on campus? I've never heard of such a thing!! On the real campus? Or just at your dorm (still dumb). I'm disappointed!! Fun to talk to you last night.

So weird to think that classes are over in 3 weeks and then your dad comes to help you move out! What? I haven't even seen you since you first arrived! That's retarded. I don't recall girls ever wearing tank tops and tiny shorts on campus. Can't they be reported for honor code violations?

p.s. I too love rainy weather, but how about that hail storm today??
