Demolition Derby

So I attended my first ever demolition derby and it was AWESOME!!!! A little redneck, but awesome none the less. Here are a few pictures, but it doesn't really do the damage justice. Some of those drivers were crazy. A guy named Gus won so my brother thought that was pretty cool. I will definitely be attending more demolition derby's in the future and you too. After the derby we went to check out Fair, oh my, I forgot how white trash carnivals can be. But it was late and they were trying to get rid of most of here stuff so we got a lot of 2 for 1's so that was pretty cool. And in case anyone is keeping track this is like 2 post in less than a week, which is really good for me. The school year is about it start so hopefully there will be more exciting things to come!

Ok, so I'm still trying to get the hang of this whole blogging thing and to say the very least I've been doing a HORRIBLE job, so I'm taking a vow to try and do a little better. Yeah, I know that's what I said last time but this time I'm going to take it a little more seriously.

So since I wrote last time, like 5 months ago, quite a bit has happened. I did go to Las Cruces and stayed with Jordan and Alyssa, and it was a total blast just to relax in some nice weather and not have to worry about work, then a couple weeks later I headed to Phoenix and got to see Kelda, Levi and Carter. I was there for a whole week and it was amazing. I love the Phoenix area and could totally live there one day! I watched baseball and layed out nearly the whole time, talk about my dream vacation
And then in May I got to go to COSTA RICA!! Courtney just graduated from BYU and wanted to celebrate and who could pass up a week in Costa Rica. It was beautiful, we stayed in a timeshare right by the beach, it was amazing!

We went on a zipline through the rainforest, I watched Courtney and Caitlin boogy board, I have issuse with swimming in the ocean, something about now knowing what might be swimming below me, I just can't do it, but I enjoyed watching and getting some sun. We went to a national park and saw monkeys and sloths, basically it was a once in a lifetime experience and I loved it!

Remember how I thought I was going to be done working in Caliente at the end of March, well that turned into the end of June and then the end of July. I think I could have stayed longer if I had wanted to, but I was ready to be done with small town life and move on to bigger and better things, like stores staying open passed 6, movie theatres, malls, traffic lights, etc. Don't get me wrong, I loved working at Grover C Dils Medical Center, but I was in desperate need of a social life and being around people my own age. So I packed up my tiny apartment, realized I have a ridiculous amount of stuff, and FINALLY moved home! It was all a little bittersweet, I met and got to know some really cool people while I was there and it was hard to leave but I was so excited to move home and get on with my life.

Now I live in Provo with Courtney, and even though it's been a little boring because I don't exactly have a job yet, I'm so glad to be back. I still work for the hospital, I just consult, so I only have to go once a month, which works out really great.

I'm excited for this next year, I have no idea what's going to happen, which kinda freaks me out, but I'm just gonna try and make the best of whatever happens.
