Well, I have moved back home.
It's pretty much spring.
No more homework.
This is my 100th post.

How I spent my reading day...

 My mom, sisters, and I went down to Arches National Park on Friday. I loved it! I wish we could have stayed longer, but alas, this is finals week. Here are some pictures from our little day trip though:

This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.

The other night I felt like re-watching 500 Days of Summer. The first time I ever watched it was in the theaters with Matt and I actually didn't love it. The second time I saw it I liked it a lot better. Now, after seeing it on Friday for the third time I am absolutely in love with the movie. There are a few parts that I really wish didn't have to be in there though. Anyhow, here are some of the reasons I do like it:
-I love the style.
-The soundtrack is wonderful.
-Joseph Gordon-Levitt is adorable.
-I like Zooey Deschanel.
-I like that it's different than other chick flicks.
-It's realistic.
-It ends happily but not in the usual way.

The basic message of the movie is that sometimes things don't work out. But that doesn't mean that it's the end of the world or that there's no chance of finding love ever again. It's a movie about a break up but also about being able to move on.

Also my new favorite song (because of this movie) is now this one. I think it's so good.

So yeah, that's about all I have to say about that.

Oh also. Yesterday. Best day ever.

The end.

My March Madness.

Well, March was crazy and there have been things I've wanted to blog about but kept putting it off... So now I'm going to actually do it. :)
A few weeks ago I went to the BYU vs. Wyoming basketball game with Matt, Hiram, and Hiram's brother. It was my first time going to a college sports game. It was actually pretty fun and BYU did really well!

 BYU: 100  Wyoming: 77

 Also, a few weeks ago I attended my last BYU Palio. If you don't remember what this is click here. I've been to three now and this was by far my favorite one (though the first was good too). My class was a little unprepared though, so we didn't have racers or riders. Turns out I got to be the rider. It was really funny and I got three piggyback rides around the Wilk so that was interesting... There was delicious food and a music group performed (can't remember who).

And last, but not least, a couple weeks ago I went to my second Holi festival. Stephanie slept over at my Spanish Fork home the night before. She, Camille, and I partied like we used to and it was really fun. The next day we met up with Sam and went to the festival. It was colder than last year, but we still had a really good time. We were brave and actually went down to the front of the crowd near the band and it was crazy but entertaining. Later, I went down there with Jamie and Parker and a crowd surfer fell right on top of me and brought us both down. Now I am terribly afraid of crowd surfers. Also, since the ground was so muddy from the snow, a mudslide was invented. Sam actually went down it! It was amusing to watch the people sliding down. I'll post a video below, not the one of Sam though since I was terrible at filming that video.
 Clean. :)
 Is it just me or do I look especially short here?
 So many people.
 Camille's boyfriend.
 D'awww. They're so cute.
 O.o Crowd Surfer...
Aw, they're cute too.
Matt :)

Mud+Thousands of high school/college kids=This. Apparently I can never embed videos into my blog. Grr.

And now back to April. General Conference was this past weekend and even though I slept through two sessions, I did really like the sessions I saw. I like how after watching General Conference I feel more motivated and inspired to try harder at improving myself. Oh, and at the end of the last session this kid smiled really big at the camera and Camille, my dad, and I thought it was so funny but my mom and older sister missed it. So one of my professors mentioned that it's on Youtube. So for those of you who missed it, watch this:

Also, school is over in three weeks. Yay!

And that's all for now! :)
