So, tomorrow is Nathan’s grandpa’s funeral. It’s been quite taxing on his family, especially his mom. I’ve been helping her out with the details and I know it will be nice when the whole thing is over and his family can actually really come to terms with his death. Even though I have experienced deaths of family members and deaths of family members of my friends, this seems a lot closer and harder to bare. Watching someone else be in such pain and not being able to do anything about it has been quite difficult. I’m trying to prepare myself to help console Nathan tomorrow since I know it won’t be easy and I know he doesn’t want me to see him in that state even though he has asked me multiple times if I am coming even though I’ve told him I would, I know he wants me to be there with him and that means a lot to me.
Besides that, life has been going well. My brother will be coming home for christmas! :) I haven’t seen him since, wow I can’t even remember. It’s been awhile. Sometime last semester. I’ve been invited to Washington/Canada with basically all expenses paid but I feel bad :/ I’m also supposed to go to the snow with Nathan and then the guys and their girlfriends are now asking me when we are going to the snow…? And then yesterday Val asked me to go to disneyland and I’m just like ahhh too much! I don’t have money :( But, if there is no snow planning on falling soon I may skip out on the snow until spring break and go to disneyland with Val and Eric and Nathan and just stay in my room down at school.
I got my hair dyed a darker, chocolatey brown and took out the red extensions and put in dark purple ones! basically my hair looks awesome and it’s such a nice length and I also got it thinned out so it doesn’t take quite as long to dry.
Now, I am off to take a shower and then go help Nathan’s mom with any last details and hang out with my man :) Being home is wonderful :)
So, I have not been on here in forever. Perhaps it’s because I found a new love…(Pinterest) that just about filled every moment of my spare time this semester. However, I’ve been contemplating for about a month now about reusing my tumblr as sort of a “journal” for myself since writing takes too long and I much prefer typing. I suppose I may still post pictures that pop up on my dash that I love, but it will mostly be my random ramblings about my life. So, here it goes…
Finished with my finals yesterday morning and jumped in my car to come home! Had a few minor setbacks with my tire pressure, but other than that and terrible drivers, it was smooth sailing. I got home at like 5:40 talked to my mom for like 2 minutes, got dressed did my hair and makeup and left to go to Nathan’s for his staff party at deacon’s. Holy crap lights, as usual there. And a ton of people I didn’t know that kept talking to me and I felt kind of awkward introducing myself rather than Nathan but he kept disappearing to help out with the party so oh well. Then, I helped close down the whole display and went back to Nathan’s. :) We watched Man vs. Wild for like 3 hours. Yep, we always seem to either be watching True Blood or some nature show which I am obviously not opposed to. Last time I was home we watched a documentary on lions and hyenas and he was so into it it was awesome! We are going to start working out outside over break to whip him into shape for ultimate and just to whip me into shape since because of all my crazy sicknesses that just keep attacking me, I haven’t really had the energy to work out. We will be doing stuff all outside because let’s face it, I really do hate the gym unless I’m doing pilates. Just using your body weight and the outside world is so much more fun anyways then being cooped up inside on machines. It will consist of lots of sprints to target his specific energy systems he uses when he plays ultimate as well as some more endurance stuff since he is on the field for good portions of the time. I’m excited mainly for our sprints up the back of del valle :) not only is it beautiful, walking up it is a pain in the ass(literally), but running up it will be hard as hell! :) I think we may be starting it this weekend or the beginning of next week, I sort of have ideas in my head of what we will be doing but I don’t have a set play yet.
I still need to finish up my christmas shopping and work on my parent’s present, but other than that this break should be really nice and relaxing. And by relaxing I mean a lot of exercising and going on hikes. I’m sad I don’t have my bike, I’d like to take on some of the trails with the mud and maybe I’ll have a little better luck than I did in Yosemite :P I’m excited! And my break will probably involve some fishing as well :P no problems there. Gosh, Nathan really has brought out my outdoorsy side! :) :)
