X Games

So the night before last night I could not fall asleep. I was seriously laying in bed for an hour. I was kind of just thinking and I didn't really mind it so much but I was ready to be asleep and away from my overactive imagination.

Anyway, I did what any normal person does, I went and watched t.v. And somehow I made it to ESPN where they were showing the X games and I realized just how squeamish I can get about things like that. Seriously they were jumping SO high. And then they showed Jake Brown and his thousand foot drop (ok, that's a little exaggeration in how much he dropped but it was insane how far he fell) back in 2007 or whenever that was. And then they kept showing that clip over and over at different angles. And he walked off the ramp after he fell! I didn't know that. And he's back to skating and winning medals and all that good stuff.

Well, last night (or this morning depending on how you look at it) there was a guy that fell after some jump and three people rushed out and I realized that they could have been athletic trainers or they were paramedics (but they weren't dressed as paramedics so for some reason I don't think they were these guys.) And its so true that athletic trainers could be hired for things like this. But as I was watching these jumps and cringing every time I think one of the skaters was going to fall (even though they don't end up falling) I realize I would need to get used to this kind of thing before I did that.

And I also realize that I am going to cringe every time there is a hard tackle when I'm out at football practice or games. Yeah, that's going to be hard for me to watch. Maybe by the end of the season I'll be numb to that kind of thing though.

But watching the X games was pretty cool. It makes me wish that I had skill to just ride a skateboard without falling.
Maybe one day.

Temporary Housing

So instead of moving into my apartment this weekend I'm moving into temporary housing on campus, which means I'm moving back into the dorms. Now this really won't be that bad because I'll get a meal card and I won't have to deal with cooking and baking anything. (Even though I like to cook and bake.)

There will be four other girls from athletic training that I will be living with in the dorms.

Oh and the entire football team will be on another floor. Well, the majority of the team. Some won't need on housing campus.

It just sucks because I was really looking forward to actually moving into my apartment and start all that decorating. But this will be fun. I hope.
Well, we'll see.
Here is my home for the next few weeks.

August 2

I have an official move-in date. Its like I can't wait to move in and be doing things but the email came to officially tell me when I can move in and its a day earlier and it hit me that it's in a week and a half.

Good bye summer. You've been good to me. A little slow at times but it was a welcome change compared to the school year. And in 11 days I will be in the state of busy again.

But in this society and especially in southern California we are consistently busy and waiting and working for the next thing. So thank you summer for boring me at times. And oddly I don't mean that too sarcastically.

Sister Love

I just really wanted to showcase how cute my sisters are with their babies. I love them.

Happy Birthday Rachel Weinstein.

I'm glad you are my friend. But I'm sad that you are on the opposite side of the country. I hope you still have an awesome birthday. Because well you deserve it. And maybe next time I'll throw you a surprise party. And this is just to remind you how totally awesome your last birthday was. Because really who wouldn't want to be hanging out in New Orleans with the greatest people ever.
P.S. It bothers me that the one group picture from this night wasn't in focus. That waiter was ridiculous.


These clouds made me incredibly happy the other day. They were just so vibrant. Even at the beach they were cool to look at.
