Alright FRIENDS! We are going on a hike on Saturday up to Lake Mary! I expect you all to try your darnest to come. Except you Dan, because you are on the other side of the country. Oh, and Bethany is excused because she is working. But the rest of you have no excuse. Except maybe Spencer. Will you be gone by then?
The rest of you should be there! It will be fun! We will take lots of pictures and make everyone who didn't come on the hike jealous. :)
alright, why have we all been such slackers about posting on this blog???
I demand more posting. asap.
What is everyone doing?
We should have a party or something. we can be celebrating..........our friendship. that sounds like a good reason. Or, you know, you could just WRITE something on here :) that's what it's for, after all.
For some reason BYU is still letting me graduate.......yeah, I can't figure it out either.
BUT, since it IS happening, I was thinking maybe we could have a little party of sorts (I know, throwing a party for myself. very self-centered). But really, it would be nice to see everybody before I leave! I was thinking maybe next Saturday night? I know there's a Bee's game, but maybe after that is over? Some ice cream or something? Or another day works too :) As long as I get some super awesome friend time before I leave on the 24th.
Do you guys think you'd all be up for season passes? Summer is coming... A few of us had a good time a few summers ago. We need atleast 4 people interested. I think Greg and I are in. You should all be in too. It's fun to go up after work a few days out of the summer.. and if we go 5ish times we end up paying less than $20 a visit.
It's $87.95 or something a person for a group of 4 or more. Let me know if ya'll wanna do it. In fact, I'm going to create a facebook event.
Here's an awesome post. Remember Saturday when we all got together to play some frisbee? Then later we all went out and got chicken and waffles, then we all went and saw Diary of a Wimpy Kid? That was awesome. Too bad I'm not in this awesome picture. But, props to Derek for being so cool to take the picture. I'm just saying.
First off, Derek you are right, we are going have a blast on our awesome road trip! But your list of reasons on why Wisconsin is going to be so much better is wrong!
Knott’s Berry farm! I don’t know if you recall, but the last time we went there we had a lot of fun! And we are getting in for a good price! We don’t need a fancy theme park to have a blast!
Max’s house = awesome! Remember the pool you got pushed into?
Road trip with cool people = more awesome!
San Diego has great weather and beaches! The possibilities are endless. Beach camping! Bon fires! Dolphins! The ocean! Ultimate Frisbee on the beach! Joel and Dan shirtless! (Yeah, I went there.)
And we will beat you at the photo contest! You just wait!
And since we have never had a chance to experience the electricity and magic between you and John, we really have nothing to be jealous about. In our minds it is all just stories we have heard from you.
The other day after work I took a trip to Eye Masters to try on a couple pairs of frames. In search for my prescription (which is nowhere to be found) I discovered something that I wish I hadn’t just shoved in the glove compartment of my car…it was a farewell letter from one of my best friends, Mr. Erik Bondehagen. He gave it to me the night before I left to move to Utah and I had forgotten what a genuinely sweet letter it was. Mind you, Erik is not one to show his mushy-gushy side (which DOES exist people!) so this letter is just a piece of friggin gold. In his letter, Erik explained the story of how the Fab Four (Suzie, Bethany, Max and Erik) met, how much he cherished everything we had gone through from summer of 2005 to winter of 2008 and added that even the worst times were awesome because he learned something from them. It definitely brought me back, remembering how everyday in Claremont was spent with my best friends, swimming, playing music, laughing, loving…it was the best time of my life. So I finished the letter and quickly sent a text message to Erik, letting him know what an awesome letter it was and how much I appreciated the nostalgia. It’s always nice to have a reminder of the times you cherished the most. For the rest of the day, not only did Erik’s letter produce countless little pictures of Claremont friends dancing around in my head (literally, dancing friends), but it also brought about an overwhelming feeling of appreciation for those that I can happily call my FRIENDS here in Utah.
I knew that as I stepped foot in Utah, anyone who could even earn the title of a so-called “friend” had big shoes to fill. Mind you, I did not say replace. It would be utterly impossible and completely out of the question to say that anyone could replace my California friends, simply, a rather large void would need to be filled once I moved. And so it has been. Through the past year, I have made friends that most definitely make a life in Utah swell and I graciously accept them into my collection of wonderful people that I grew to know and love throughout my life in California. So here’s to all of my friends, from the coast of Southern California, to Utah...
All my life I've been searching for something Something I can put my finger on Maybe I've been living for the weekend Maybe I've been living for this cyber soul Every Friday just about midnight All my problems seem to disappear Everyone that I miss when I'm distant Everybody's here
