Voting in a Presidential Election

For me, and all my friends, this November 6th will be the first time we will get to vote in the Presidential election! Finally.  

Now, I'm not the most politically invested person, but I do keep up with the news and I think it is disgusting that my mom thinks Paul Ryan is cute.

I think it is important, not who you vote for, but that you spend time learning about the candidates and placing your vote.

Shark Week

This year is Shark Weeks 25th Anniversary!

Any readers out there who have been watching?

I've never gotten into Shark Week, like at all, because my parents deprived us of cable TV when I was growing up. Now that I'm a rich and famous college student, cable is a part of my life!  However, I don't watch much TV, except the Wild games and maybe Keeping Up with the Kardashians. And I'm also terrified of sharks. This is because during Spring Break this year, after swimming in the Atlantic Ocean for hours, we watched a man, who was fishing, catch a HUGE SHARK ten feet away from our spot. To say the least, I'm not a fan. But last night, my roommate and best friend, Mary, sat me down one night and we watched the Shark Week on the Discovery channel for a really long time. Too much time. And it was good! 

Check out this link to make sure you don't miss out on anything! 

Oh, Minnesota

Anybody else feel that breeze today?!

I had to dig in the trunk of my car for a sweatshirt, our office is THAT cold today! So, I'm lookin' extra cute in a fancy office dress and St. Thomas sweatshirt. It's currently 68 degrees in St. Paul.

WHAT. It hasn't been this cold since March. Literally. \

With this being one of the last weekends of the SUMMER, I'm getting mad. I'm going to my cabin on Lake Vermilion for the first time this summer (yeah my parents are thrilled with me at this point), and it'll be no fun if it's cool weather.

What do you guys think about this weird weather??

2012 London Olympics

I have been obsessed with the Olympics. After coming back from my vacation, I started tuning in to catch up! Even though I do work at Ticket King, I'm not the biggest sports fan ever, but something about the Olympics is just so exciting!

Some of my favorite events are swimming, diving, and beach volleyball. I'm constantly checking the medal count, downloaded a NBC Olympics app on my phone, and even check up on my favorite events while they're live streaming online at work.

Side note: All my friends and I think that Ryan Lochte is the hottest thing since, well since Michael Phelps. But is he actually stupid? Check out this hilarious video about how Ryan is great at swimming, but less great at talking. And this article about his Twitter style. I couldn't stop laughing.

Check this out to keep updated on the medal count!

What have been your favorite things to watch and cheer for? Go USA!

A Little Family Trip

Hey readers!

Welllllll I just got back from a twelve day, back-packing, wilderness adventure in Glacier Nation Park with my wonderful family. We all squeezed into our mini-van jammed packed with tents, firewood, sleeping bags, and (most importantly) enough food for a month.

Now, don't get me wrong, it was a GREAT vacation. I'm just not the most outdoorsy person ever, so while my younger siblings would run, literally run, the 20 mile hikes we did, I preferred to take in the scenery. Lots of scenic stops and lots of munching on sunflower seeds and trail mix. Sorry.

High point: The last day we finally convinced my father to take an "easy day", so instead of doing a 15+ mile hike, we found a secluded spot on St. Mary's Lake and hung out there for about five hours. Hot sun, great views, glacial cold water ( I went in three times though because it was too hot otherwise!), and a private beach. Sounds like paradise. Can I go back now?

One more high point: On the way back from a particularly difficult hike, we came across a BEAR on the trail. She was just chillin', but still. I've never seen my father as scared as he was seeing this majestic (killer) animal. I was shaking, but it was SO awesome to see this wild animal up so close. Not many hikers come across bears on the trail, we were super lucky!

Low point: My family doesn't really believe in sunscreen, so after lathering on SPF 4 (with tanning oil oops), we left Montana redder than a tomato!  Because of the added elevation of Montana compared with St. Paul, the sun is doubly strong. Days later, I'm peeling so hardcore.

Great weather, good company, so much good food, lots of physical activity, and an awesome time in God's country! We even met up with one of my friends from school, Maria, who is working out there! It was great to see a familiar face, and I'm know she loved exchanging stories of Glacier.

AND one of the best (or worst, I can't decide) things was we had no cell-service, TV access, NOTHING. We didn't know what was going on in the world at all! It was soo nice not having to check my emails, not being attached to my phone, just to take in nature and not have to deal with anything. When we got back into civilization about nine day later, I checked my phone and felt the love from my friends on my Facebook page. However, when my sister and I checked our phones, we both had gaps in our texts.  (cue angry voice!)We received none of our texts for a period of five days!!@#@!!! Lost in cyber space, I guess. Whatever.

 BUT, All in all, it was a perfect time! I didn't even bust my knee from hiking 6 miles down a straight mountain! ;)

Take a peek at some of the jaw-dropping places we went!
