How Not To Impress a Date

Last week, I drove up to Squaw Peak for the first time. I was with Chris and Megan and we wanted to see the view. For those who don't know, Squaw Peak is the make-out point in Provo. There were a few couples up there eating, one guy meditating, and some other people who had biked up there.

One interesting conversation I overheard was between a couple. They were eating, sitting on the back of his truck when I heard:

"I was in a movie once...It was a church movie. Churchball? (Long Pause) I have never even seen it."

True Story. The best part is that the opening sequence of that movie was filmed at a BYU Basketball game which I attended. So technically, I guess I could be in the movie since I was at that game. But I really haven't seen the movie, so I wouldn't know. I wasn't impressed, and I don't think his date was either.

First Day of School

I sadly realized the other day that I may never have a first day of school again. I was so disappointed. I only have 3 classes left to take until I graduate. The way it looks, one will be online and one for each of the Fall and Winter semesters. I need to work full-time, so I am spreading it out like that. But I am not going to wake up one day looking forward to a full day of class. Yes, I said looking forward to. I have always loved the first day of school , the only exception was 6th grade. I love the smell, the sound and the feeling. Some of you may not know what the first day of school smells like. I can't really explain it, but I did get a whiff of it as I was thinking about this the other day.

However, there is hope. One day I want to be a teacher. I don't know if the smell, sound, and feeling will be the same, but it can't be bad.
