Tribute to the Gnome Home

2010 was a pretty alright year, it was definitely no 2009, but it was alright. The biggest accomplishment of the year was finally going on a plane. One of the best things that happened was Cruise, it was so weird and miserable at times, but I still look back on it with such fond memories. The worst thing that happened in 2010 was the Gnome Home being dissolved, losing 3 of the main gnomes really hurt us bad, but Juje and I and sometimes Mara were able to keep it going pretty good. Now, Juje and Mara are leaving, and the wondrous times of the gnome home are no more.

These are some of my most favorite times: (I don't know why it's weird spacing)

RIP Gnome Home.

Snowy Things

This morning I woke up to a lot of snow, I had a final at 7:30 and I wasn't even mad about it. The snow was such a great surprise for some reason. It was beautiful, there weren't many people awake by that time so it hadn't been tampered with yet. It was just a huge white blanket over all of Logan, and walking through campus has been wonderful.

Things have been way cool lately. The gnomes and I went to Cabin last weekend and it was just what I needed. I loved being with old friends, eating rubbish and watching movies in the cozy cabin. Rummikub is so much better than I remember, and snowball fights are so much more tiring than I ever remember, even when you are in a 5 foot radius of all your opponents. I love playing in the snow, I need to do it more, it's always more fun than I think it will be.
Stole this from Ky. Something weird happens to me in the snow and I look like a boy. The snow was the most packable snow I've ever experienced and I could make stands in the blink of an eye. Other great things that happened this weekend were: driving with kylee, golf balls with faces on them, nuts, me and nat rocking sequence, game juje, sledding, shawshank, listening to weird-o music, and lots of laughing. My only regret is not making Riana get on the rafters again.
