donner party of seven.

spent the last four days up at donner lake with some of the walnut/college crew.
it was like paradise.
great friends, great adventures, great food, great games, great everything!
rafting, beaching, tubing, eating, drinking, gaming, naping, hiking,
you name it, we did it.

donner '11 you were the best
and donner '12 we can't wait for you!

flower power.

i think that i can have bragging rites when it comes to theses beauties.
even though dad planted, watered, grew, nurtured, fertilized, trimmed, etc.
i just took the pictures...?
but honestly, check out these flowers!
no big deal, they just grow all around our house.
varieties of sunflowers, dahlias, roses.
yousss a stud, dad!

that i have the bestest roommates/friends/chosen family/girlfriends in the world.
soaking up the last of my days at 'walnut' with these cuties.
best three years of my life living with these hooligans.
i love you mewy, abs, and rachy.

blah. blah. blah.
grad apps are just plain lame.
and essays are even lamer.


it's my favorite day of the week. t-h-u-r-s-d-a-y!
farmers market.
one day until the weekend.
best night to grab dinner and drinks with friends.
the 'work week' if over, pretty much.
you know the drill...

happy thursday!

oh the places you'll go.

i've been thinking a lot about life today
as i regurgitate my achievments, catalogue my hours, record my stories,
and try to convince some panel of people on a two page word document
that i am qualified to occupy a position in their program
over hundreds of other applicants.
its such a weird concept to me and this whole growing up thing has got me thinking.

in the process, i started looking at other peoples lives.
this one stuck with me...
i guess dr. suess was right.
