Don’t worry guys, I’m talking about ski poles….
The past week has gone by exceptionally fast considering my least favorite holiday started it all. Monday night, Tori and I went to see The Vow. Such a good movie and great company too.Then Valentines Day….. bleh. Thanks for the Valentines by the way! Kendyl, you are too creative and cute for your own good, Cathy- I loved all the buttons and the color scheme was perfect! I also got flowers! So sweet, it actually made me like Tuesday. (And who cares if they were from my grandparents…) Valentines Day wasn’t actually all that of a big deal like I thought it might be. I had Biology Lab from 7-10pm so my TA was my hot date. And actually it was a little awk because we were studying plant reproduction and, don’t get me wrong I really like my lab TA, but some of the things he was talking about just made flower sex lab on Valentines Day awk. Oh and it didn’t really help that I stayed late to have him quiz me (like I always do because bio is dumb) and I was the last one in there.. I don’t know man, I don’t know.
Another exciting thing that happened this week occurred on Thursday night. I’m taking a theatre class and we had to see a show. Dancing at Lughnasa. It was different but I really loved it and I wish I could be in a show.Actually, I just want to be Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway musical Wicked.
Then Friday was a blur because I was supa pumped to go skiing! But to meet up with the AFS kids aka my bro from Spain to get my lift ticket, Tori and I were going to have to leave Cow-Town at 6am. Not happenin’. So the Broyer’s booked us a hotel in Old Town Winter Park for the night. We ate at Hernando’s which is known for there inside decor and great Italian food;
Baked Rigatoni and Cheese Ravioli and a family sized portion of bread (I just love taking pictures of my food... is that weird?)
we stayed at some hotel, which was really cute and had huge beds that felt like clouds compared to our plastic mats we sleep on here. And finally skiing at Winter Park! HOLY COW. Ski trip to Winter Park is the best Christmas present ever. I have been so stressed and worried about school and almost miserable because of a few events that have happened this past week (they are irrelevant) that this trip could not have come at a better time.

Here I am with Nacho, somewhere close to the top of the mountain at Winter Park.
Overall, the best part of the week is that I’m alive! I survived a stressful week and skiing for the first time. (I am not too bad at skiing either, I did a lot better this time than when we went to Snow Creek)
Next thing I want to conquer: water skiing or parasailing.
