So a few posts back I mentioned that I was dating someone… well long story short that one bit the dust. Not because we didn’t like each other or anything but it was just my typical bad timing on approaching a relationship. Kind of like that one time I decided it was a good idea to fall for a girl that was going to move across the country for 7 months. Or more recently becoming interested in a way cute girl who happens to be going on a mission in a month… So that’s a quick update on my lack of love life.
To move on to some entertainment I’m looking forward to, my amazing sister happens to have a lot of the same interests as me. Last thanksgiving we spent it at her house up north and she noticed my utter boredom and gave me a book to read. ( I don’t read books ever. I hate those things!) The book she gave me was Hunger Games. I had heard a lot of good things about it and decided I’d give it a shot. After the first two chapters I was hooked. I had almost finished the entire book before heading back down to Saint George. I was so hooked on the book that for Christmas good ol’ Saint Nick gave me the other two books in the trilogy, Catching Fire, and Mocking Jay. If you haven’t read these books finish reading my blog, then go read them! They are amazing! Girls will love the love story behind it, and guys will love the brutal killing. A little something for everyone. I’m especially excited for March 23rd, 2012 when the movie comes out! I am such a nerd that the morning the trailer was released, I went over to my friends apartment to watch it with her because she loves the books as much as I do. Not only does my sister have great taste in literature, she happens to love country music like I do. So on valentines day, rather than spending it alone eating a pizza or taking out some girl that doesn’t care about me, I will be up in Salt Lake City at a Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, and Thompson Square concert. Basically all three of those bands are amazing! They could belch and it would be a gold record. We got the coolest seats in the entire place! See that little red circle in the middle of the stage? That is where we will be located.
In the world of sports. So happy the NBA lockout is over! I’m not the biggest sports fan, or basketball fan for that matter. But I do love me some Utah Jazz regardless of how terrible they are at times. I am hoping to make it up to a game or two this year but because of my lack of funds that may be a little difficult.
Also how about that nifty fellow the Broncos got behind center. Tim Tebow. Everyone is having a fit because “he cant throw the ball” or gets on his case because he prays during games. Well here is my two cents. Tim Tebow is the most entertaining the Broncos have seen since John Elway. Quiet frankly I’d rather have a quarterback that can score touch downs, win games, and be fun to watch, as opposed to a quarterback who throws for 250 yards but still loses because nobody else on the team can do anything. He’s only lost one game since getting the starting position so if its not broken, don’t fix it! And as for him praying, I’d rather have a religious player than someone who’s out partying, and getting arrested for drugs and firearms. But then again I’m not the GM of a football team so what do I know?
So how about the economy… it sure isn’t looking like it's getting any better. And living in a great town such as Cedar City jobs are scarce. Thank heavens both me and my roommate got jobs up at Brianhead Ski Resort. He will be working the ski lift and I’ll be holding down the fort in rentals. I have no idea what I’ll be getting paid, and more than likely my Christmas break will be spent in Cedar City working. The big perk of this job is I get a season pass so I can ski and snowboard for free whenever I'm not working. The downside to that perk, I don’t know the first thing about doing either! I tried snowboarding back when I was.. 12 maybe? And it was no bueno. I could only turn one way, couldn’t stop, so I would turn until I almost hit the trees, fall to stop myself, scoot back out into the middle of the trail, and repeat. I tried my hand at skiing once but that was also nearly 10 years ago. I remember I never wrecked and I went on more runs than just the Bunny-hill. I fully intend on learning to shred some powder, or else I am really going to hate my job.
Well with that being said I should get back to “what are generalizations regarding motor performance of the hearing impaired” since I have a test tomorrow and all. Thanks for reading and if you have any suggestions on topics for me to write about I’d love to hear them! Because I’m drawing complete blanks on what to blog about. Thanks for all the positive feedback and support.
