Summer = Goodness

I'm loving daylight savings. I love the longer days. It's so trippy that it's light out at 7:30pm now. I love it! I don't know why some people hate it. I'll take the extra daylight and warmth. I can't wait to get back into the canyons and mountains. I've already started to listen to "summer" music. For some reason, some of the songs I like are more appealing in the summer. You've probably noticed I changed the music on my playlist. I recently rediscovered a band I loved in high school. I've been listening to Blind Melon and Pearl Jam nonstop for the past few weeks. I don't think many people recognize Blind Melon. They're best known for their only hit No Rain off of their first album, but that album contains much greater gems than No Rain.

Anyway, back to the goodness of summer. Here's what I hope this summer will be filled with (in no particular order):

  1. BBQs
  2. Camping
  3. Real Salt Lake games
  4. Baseball
  5. Golfing
  6. Stargazing
  7. Beaches
  8. Long walks on those beaches ;)
  9. Fishing
  10. Concerts
  11. Road trips
  12. Sunday drives
I think it's a pretty good list. If you know of something I missed, PLEASE let me know. I want to do a couple of other things for the first time, too. I really want to see the Utah Symphony at the Deer Valley Music Festival. I just looked it up and I'm even more excited because Ben Folds is performing with them in July. That would be sweet! If you're interested in going, let's do it!!! I also want to go on a full moon chairlift ride at sundance. Oh and I've always wanted to go to the gardens at Thanksgiving point. May have to do that this summer, too. Anyone been before? Let me know if it's worth the price.

I finally got around to uploading some pics and videos from last month for your viewing pleasure. Get ready for sensory overload!!!

My buddy David and I have a tradition of going to a buffet every time we have a Monday off of school. This last time we went to Golden Corral. The food sucked, but this kid made the trip so worth it.

And now some pics and vids from the concert.

Well, for some reason, I'm not able to upload any videos. The icon to add videos is missing. If I can fix it, I'll add the videos. If not, your loss!

Recent Happenings

I thought I'd do a quick update of some exciting things that have happened lately.

  1. This by far is the most exciting item on this list. I bought new bath towels! Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.
  2. I've started playing the drums. My mother played when she was growing up and I think she's the coolest for that if for nothing else. I've never wanted to buy a video game console, but Rock Band just might be a good enough reason now. Especially if I could get her to play again. That would be saweet!
  3. I had my tires rotated on Friday.
  4. I'm going to get me this shirt when it becomes available. Take that Jazz fans! Mwa-ha-ha-ha.
  5. I became the first person to beat Cookie at Buzz! He has a vast amount of useless knowledge.
  6. I had lunch with a mission companion who was in town over the weekend. I wish you could meet him. He's a champ.
  7. Continued reading this book. I'm liking it so far.
  8. I went to the Elton John/Billy Joel concert last weekend. Amazing!
