So last weekend was Utah State's Fall Break. Did I catch up with sleep? Did I do school work? Did I exercise? Did I clean? Was I productive at all? Nope. But I did accomplish the main focus of what 'break' means to me. I did whatever I wanted. Again, I didn't spend enough time with my family, but hopefully this time I really learned my lesson.
My break was crazy! I did a million things! Thursday night I watched
Sherlock Holmes with friends and family, Friday I hung out with my
family and two of my nieces, and before Brittney and I went to a wedding
reception we visited a house built just five minutes from my house that
is supposed to be identical to the house from the movie UP.
I also went to the dentists that morning and they found my first cavity! It was just a baby one, but boy did the numbing stuff last a long time. The left side of my mouth didn't function for hours and hours, I couldn't even smile normally!
After the wedding reception Brittney and I met up with Layten and went to Thanksgiving Point where the three of us went crazy! It was like going back to childhood; hayrides, tractor rides, corn mazes, bounce houses, and more. Afterwards we had a fire and roasted mallows.
Saturday Brittney left me for her home further south and I helped my neighbors with some yard work (I probably should have helped my own family with work but it never occurs to me until after the fact), went to the temple with my little brother, and then went on my first motorcycle ride! That was probably the highlight of my weekend. We rode up close to the foot of the mountains to see all the trees that were changing colors, it was incredible. I am so excited to go on another ride but it probably won't be for a really long time.
Sunday was amazing as well. It was my family's regional conference and I have to say that the broadcast of Elder Bednar's talk was my favorite. He did such a great job and touched on some points that I needed to hear. (I am off to work soon or I would go into detail.)
I still haven't quite figured out why I am in such a weird mood and have hardly any desire to do anything I am normal interested in, but I'm working on it. I figured updating my blog, somewhat, would be nice especially since this weekend, being Halloween, will be pretty epic.
I have been taking a few pictures here and there for the past couple weeks of things that catch my eye.
