The Only thing to do is just OVER the moooon!

That is sadly a quote from the horrible show, Rent. But she is singing about taking a Leap of Faith, which is exactly what we did over at Clas Ropes by Utah Lake. For our last hurrah before everyone went seperate ways, we decided to be adventurous.

We were allowed 2 hours of play, and we picked three high ground things. One was a giant swing, sorta like the Sky Coaster at lagoon, except it was only about 70 feet high rather than 200. We also did the one called the Heebie Jeebie, where you had to climb up a tree, then walk across a wire only using loose ropes for support. Lastly we did the trapeze, where you had to jump from a 1 by 1 platform on a telephone pole and grab onto the trapeze in mid air....So very frightening, just to jump into space. I think all of us had to conquer some small fear inside of us. I am just embarrassed because I could hardly even climb the tree, I was so scared of falling. I don't know why though, we were so lassoed in. I guess I was just scared of falling on the tree. I am so weird like that. Anyway, it was really fun and adventurous.

So here are the pictures

This was our first activity. We had to fit everyone onto a tiny tiny platform. There were nine of us. We stratigized by climbing onto backs.

We ended up like this, but we did it.

I am so ready to go:


Then we got harnessed in and tried out the giant swing.It was fun, you could do flips and stuff!

We also video taped our adventure.


This is me climbing a tree. So scary...


Up in the ropes!


Repelling down after I was triumphant.


And here I am jumping. SO VERY INTENSE, to just jump into mid air.


I feel like I have become... one with myself and my... adventurous side.


It seems like this is something Mattie would like to take Jack to. Perhaps in July?? I have a dollar off per person!

Good Bye, Jeffrey Ribeira


Well, Jeff is gone. He stopped by early today, meaning five thirty to say goodbye before he and his sister took the long and perilous drive home. I will truly miss that boy. He has been ever so good to me. Even last night he took me out to my favorite diner, Wingers. I have been so blessed to have such a wonderful boy to rekindle my trust in men. He has only had good intentions from the beginning, and has respected me and treated me amazingly since day one. Hence, I salute you Jeff Ribeira. Have fun in CA.

What once was orange now is... white.

So, Mandy is moving out next week, so we thought it a good idea to white wash our very orange room. As we have to pay a fee if we don't do it, and we needed to paint over the quote wall, and Mandy needed to finish packing and clean out our room before she moved out, we felt it best to just paint it right back to white. So! With out further ado, here are the before pictures:
Here is the bed view.
And here is the desk.

So then we painted and painted!



And finally, after our closet was this full of junk:


And we finished! And it looked like this:

And this


Hurrah for painting. It was very fulfilling indeed, and I think actually made our room look a wee bit bigger. Maybe because we cleaned most of the stuff out. Anyway, hurrah.

I promise a genuine post is coming.

I don't want to be all spammy about my posts, and just post bulk posts, but I just thought this was fun and mom and cami's were interesting. So, I will just do this, then a real post.

For hours and hours I could...
Giant Journal
Watercolor (my newfound favorite medium)
Watch Lost, Simpsons, or Futurama (dad, I know you hate that show... But sometimes I can't resist!)

I feel best about myself...
When I clean my room (another newfound favorite hobby)
Have a whole day open with no commitments
When Nathan tells be I put together over 100 tuxedos for one weekend, and only about 6-10 had minor problems. And that I got a raise for it.

I absolutely cannot stand...
People not replacing the TP... grumble grumble
Idiots who come in on Friday to rent a tuxedo for Saturday, 15 minutes before closing time.... HATE!
When people leave the lids off my pens...
The THX sound. One of my worst childhood fears.
Also, that Drew is a bazillion miles away. Frustration.

I am afraid of...
Running out of Money
People hiding in my house then murdering me in my sleep.
Confrontation with certain people
Disapointing the people whom I love.

I love to splurge by...
Shopping whenever I can.
Going to Disneyland 3 times in the same year.

I save by...
Only buying 2 shirts rather than three!... Shame on me...
Hiding my debit card from myself.

I am trying to work on...
Saving money (I COULD BE SO RICH!!! ARGH!)
Having an optimistic outlook on my relationship with me and college. I hate college. I love the college life, but I hate hate hate college.

In high school...
I only ever wanted to be in the plays...
I passed my classes by doing the least amount of work possible, yet I still got mostly A's.

In college...
I am a horrible student, but I get my work done.
Teachers constantly tell me that they know my potential and I never reach it. All my art teachers are always very disappointed... I try... enough...

I feel I'm a good mom when...
I actually comprehend giving birth... Not that I have talked myself into it quite yet, but yes, Sometimes I feel like it may be a possibility one day...

I regret...
My senior year of high school, even though I got the best things out of it, such as Nicole and Lacie, and starring as Fantine, but man... Worst year of my life.
I regret ever letting Cory Whale break up with me. I could have fought for it. Also rejecting him while I was dating Jordan. Like Cory said, Cory was more of a boyfriend to me than Jordan ever was. Sigh...

I could never have too many...
Pillows
Clothes (the highest of fashions, please!)
TV seasons on DVD

What about you?

AAAAANd we did it again...

Matching matching Brown and Black Squared?

So Jeff came over to pick me up to go eat dinner over at his brother's apartment (which was fabulous, by the way. Great food, fun entertainment, fabulous company.) And just as I opened the door I was saying to Jeff, "DON'T MAKE FUN OF ME BECAUSE I AM WEARING BLACK AND BROWN BECAUSE IT IS IN NOW AND I THI-" and I stopped because yet again, Jeff was wearing the same thing as me... Well there you have it. We are just destined to match for the rest of our lives.

This is me saying, don't you take my styles from me! And Jeff shows he cannot be threatened...
