I'm around here somewhere..

hm, so I finished the semester in tact, which wasn't as big a miracle as I thought it'd be a few weeks before finals. I'm still working towards a degree in ASL interpreting, which is fun. I keep getting set backs in my progression but hopefully I'll figure out a way around them...
And to add to my set backs I'm planning on serving a mission, for which I'm putting my availability towards the end of summer.
"Are you trying to avoid Matt?" many people ask (either internally or out). My answer is no. I just wanted more of a chance to visit with friends, play a little bit, and most importantly save up more money for to pay for it.
Speaking of money, I have a different sort of job now.. I demonstrate knives. I'm trying to decide right now if I want to make it my full-time job or a side job this summer. If you have any suggestions/advice, I'd love to hear it!

BBQ Bailout

Ok alright, so I know the bailing on the bbq was my fault, but Mary, my sister is getting married May 27th, my Mom has basically claimed my life, so a BBQ seemed ok to push back and the place we wanted to do it was booked, sad but true. So, I'm not against having a BBQ in May, I think it would be great, cause everyone leaves June for all of their summer events, however, I can't be in charge of it, I've already been in charge of way to many things at way too stressful times. So I'm passing the baton, or I could even share it, any takers? We could do it on a weeknight mwf or a saturday afternoon, but this Saturday is all booked, the 17th is fairly busy, the 24th I could sneak it in, but I wouldn't be able to plan it, the 31 is ok too. Memorial day is out, being that Mary gets married the next day and my life is claimed which is ok, because I'm free after the 27th.

Lauren is in town the 24-31 I think, Caitlin leaves in June sometime, Greg goes back to Virginia in June, Amanda has a Birthday somewhere around there, and I don't want her to feel that the BBQ overrides yeah pushing it back sucks.

Also, you have to have at least 10 ppl for sure show up for a good game of Ulitmate Frisbee, 7 just wasn't enough.

So with all of this in mind, we can do a BBQ/ Ultimate Frisbee event, but I don't want to plan the whole thing, I can't.

So.... Its official all the papers went through we just have one or two more things to do and then we wait.. I hate waiting and i hate packing. It sucks because i cant really pack anything yet. Mainly because we dont have boxes but i use everything i own on a day to day basis. Like all i own are my clothes and some books and LOTS of movies but pretty sure i dont wanna pack all that up like 3 weeks before i move. I move in 3 weeks wow that is less than a month away oh gol i'm so nervous!

Anyways the rest of my life goes as follows... Pretty much I hate the people i work with except for my grnadpa of course, but they are all liers and cheats its really sad. But hopefully my grandpa will sell his practice soon and then i wont have to deal with them. I really want to work for Cari this summer, but i have heard rumors about her possibly not doing fruit stands this year? Does anyone know anything?? That would be sad if she didn't do it. I would cry. :'(

Also another question are we doing a bbq thinger ever? I think the date and time has been changed a thousand times now! Its sad but yeah i really think we should do it sooonnnn... But yeah that is all right now i guess.

London Baby!

Well, more specifically Cambridge. Less than two months and I will be headed to the country of fog, tea and bad oral hygeine. What's this? You say you didn't know I was going to England? Well shame on me for keeping you out of the loop. Here's the scooby:

I am going to Cambridge for a study abroad program. I leave June 28 and get back Aug 10. (when I say get back I mean get back to Cali. Which is where i am living. In case you didn't know that either.) While in England I will be studying creative writing, spending a weekend in York, London, and Paris, and I will also try to post pictures and keep current on my blog ( as well as a post or two on this page. But we'll see how well that goes. For the most part I am really excited!!!!!!! But I am kinda nervous too, I've never been so far away alone before. Any advice from you world travelers?

Also, before I go I will be back in Utah for a week (May 24-May 31) So hopefully I'll see some of you before I go all international. Cheerio for now mates!
