The busyness of the Christmas season!

Last Friday was the orchestras Winter Concert. It was fun preparing for and even more fun playing in it. I played the violin as well as playing in the bell choir.

Last week, my roommates and I went on a room date to In-N-Out. It was a nice time we could have together before this semester is over.

Amanda and Mackenzie

Cailey and I

All of us

I'm very excited because there are only 4 days left until I am home! :) I have taken six finals and I only have 3 more. YAY!

Two weeks from today, I will be at home. :)

I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!

Trip to see the LA Philharmonic

My birthday was a few weeks ago, and then my friend Leslie had her birthday one week later. Then another friend, Rebekah, had her birthday the week after that. So, so celebrate all of our birthdays at the same time, we decided to make a trip to Los Angeles to see the LA Philharmonic perform Handel's Water Music.

The three of us and another friend made the trip last Saturday. It was performed in the Disney performance center.

Since we are college students, we were able to get our tickets at discount. Instead of paying $120 dollars for a ticket, we paid $20! Can't beat that!

Of course in the car, we took some crazy pictures...

We had a great time and it made our birthdays pretty special. :) It's good to have friends...

Only 18 days left until I go home for Christmas!

Santa Monica Pier

It's strange to think that while my family back home is being inundated with snow, I am out here wearing t-shirts...
It gets cold in the mornings and evenings, but during the day it can get pretty hot.

The other week we had an activity to the Santa Monica Pier. I made sure to get a few pictures for my blog.

It was nice....and very relaxing out on the beach. I am looking forward to WINTER though and I can't wait to be home for Christmas break! Only 44 days left! :)

One mans trash is another mans treasure.

One man's trash is another mans treasure.

The other day I was walking back to my dorm after late class and I noticed that the maintenance guys were cutting back the rose bushes. All of the white flowers were chopped off and in the trashcans. So I stopped and asked one of the guys if I could pick a flower out of the trash. They looked shocked and said "Sure." Then they helped me look through the trash for the nicest flowers.

I put them in water from a cut in half sprite bottle and now today (two days later), the buds are blooming! :)

Strange how something so little can totally make my day brighter... :)

It's almost scary... I thought something seemed different about it, and when I compared these pictures I thought...maybe they put something in the water here.

This picture is from last fall at college.

And this fall at college:

This is a really random post, I just thought that was so weird...

haha... until later!

Martha and Daniel's wedding

I was able to fly home last weekend for Martha and Daniel's wedding. I don't have a very long time before class, but I wanted to at least put up some pictures from the wedding.

The happy couple

Hungry hungry people.... haha!

Bridal party

I wasn't able to take many pictures since I was in the bridal party. It was a beautiful wedding and I was so happy I was able to go home for it!

Only 64 days left until Christmas break!

A Luau in Lancaster

Last week there was a big activity here at the college. It was a Luau, right here in Lancaster... :)

It was a fun activity to go to and the games were fun to watch even though I didn't play any of them.

This is a picture of my roommate Mackenzie on the left, me and Leslie.

Leslie and her boyfriend Jeff.

Leslie, Jeff, Mackenzie and Nick

Those are the only pictures I have from the Luau since my camera died on me. Until I have something new to post~!

The desert...and my college

College food is great and everything, but sometimes, its nice to just go out. :) I went out to dinner the other day with some of my new friends. I was glad that Leslie and Kaley wanted to go out to eat, since the dining hall was serving burritos and I do not like those beans inside burritos. :)

Anyway, we had a ton of fun...

I was taking some random pictures of Leslie, navigating through roadwork...

I managed to get this blurry picture of the campus from a distance.

Yes, I am out in the middle of the desert.

It really is beautiful out here, even though it's not like home. In the evening when the sun sets, everything glows red/orange from the setting sun. Its quite a sight to see. Hopefully in the future I can catch a better shot of it.

College living...

Since being in this part of California, I think I'm becoming more blond! How exciting...haha.

Just thought I'd share a picture of my room. My camera has been acting really funny lately, so I haven't been taking many pictures at all. But this is half of my room. The top bunk is mine. :)

Lately, my classes have been going really well, and I've already passed four quizzes and done a bunch of homework.

I'm really excited about going home for my sisters wedding. It's coming up really soon (the 1st of October) and it's going to be GREAT!

Well, I am going to go do some studying for a quiz tomorrow and then go to dinner with some friends. :) Until later!

California again...

Well, I am officially in California again. This week of orientation has gone very slowly. The worst part about it is adjusting to a new school. This one is much bigger and it's more difficult to get used to. I'm sure as soon as classes start on Monday though, I'll be fine.

Last week my family came over for the last time before I left. It was a nice get-together and I especially enjoyed taking pictures of my adorable niece. :)

Martha and I took a picture too.

The weather here is a little different from where I was before in California. I am in the desert now, so it is very dry and hot. Oh my goodness, and the WIND!! :D I'm excited about this school year though. :)
