The Flames? Really?

It has come to my attention that my high school made Newsweek’s top 500 high schools at #196.  I’m not quite sure how this happened considering our mascot was “Flames” (really cool), we had NO internal walls (seriously, open-wall school), and each corner of every floor was color coded in paint from the 1970’s.  I will say that I am glad we beat out the other 2 Williamsville high schools by something like 300 places.  For some reason I feel really good about this. I wish I could post some goodies from back in the day but let’s be honest we had no digital media back then.

Go Flames! (This is what we had to chant during sports… isn’t that kind of sad?)

Some stuff has happened I guess.

Let me first say that I PASSED MY MA EXAM.  Holy moly.  I realized after that thing was over that I had been in a constant bad mood for the 2 months before my exam. Always stressed and always felt like I had to read something in French. But now it’s over. The grass is greener.  The air is fresher. Food tastes better.  Here are just some of the books I had to read… it doesn’t seem like a lot in this picture, which is disappointing.  There are maybe 10 more that I had to get from the library that are NOT pictured here. Does that help? In any case, I didn’t finish them all (although MOST I DID), but I did read every wikipedia article about them.  My favorites: Madame Bovary and The Stranger.

So here is an update on other stuff that has happened.  It’s been awhile.

General Conference! Great seats with some great people. Then met up with the JD and ran into friends from France!

Marcie accidentally squirt ketchup all over Jordan’s pants! Yikes! It wasn’t really her fault – it just came out and she just kept talking.

Amy‘s going on a mission! And I will miss her.  We ate lots of Bruges‘ french fries to celebrate.

My sister-in-law Heidi makes such amazing cakes!

Jess and Jake got married! And this is the only shot I have of their reception: Meagan getting marshmallow in her hair.  Oooops.

We had a fashion show in my class so they could learn clothing vocab and I told them to wear weird clothes.  This was the best day! Lots of techno music and people taking off clothes.  Cool.

I ate this.  Bacon in chocolate.  Bacon is probably the best, but bacon and chocolate just didn’t do it for me.

I bought a bike! (The yellow one.) Felt F70.  Great components! Such a good deal!! And in my size!! (I have the leg length of a child.)

Camping in Capitol Reef. Wind and sand everywhere.  And goblins. And great people.

You may have already gotten this in the mail.  I just hope it becomes the next billboard on the I-15.
