So a story from today: Brianne and I spent the weekend in Salt Lake babysitting her little cousins and staying in this sweet house up in a fancy shmancy neighborhood. Anyway, this morning we decided to enjoy the hot tub. When we were finished, we got out put the cover back on it and went to open the door. It would not budge. We were locked out. We ran through the snow in our barefeet and wet swimsuits (This is DECEMBER remember) to a different back door: also locked. The we ran through more snow to the front door: also locked. Just when we were about to give up and head to a neighbors we saw that one of the garage doors was opened and we were saved. Pretty great luck we have eh?
Other things of note.... Brianne and I ran a 5K race in Park City in October. It was my first race ever, and first 5k ever but it went really well. I got 35th overall and 5th in my age division, with an average pace of 9:30. Not too shabby.
Also I did add the second major in Italian in case I didn't mention that before. Also also I am going back to Italy for an internship in the spring. It's for 7 weeks and I am hoping to get a spot in museum work but that is still undecided.
Um, I went on a blind date set up by my cousin for me, and the date itself was lovely. It was my first date in nine months so I wasn't sure how it would go. The guy was great really nice and easy to talk to. We had a pretty good time. Unfortunately he looked surprisingly similar to my ex boyfirend so that kinda put a damper on it on my end. It was great in every other respect so who knows. If he ever asked me out again I would say yes I think, but who knows whether that will even happen.
Also also also I just signed up for a second TA job so during winter semester I will be working two jobs to help me pay for Italy and the aftermath which is called being broke.
So yeah those are some of the main highlights from this semester.
From Park City, this is what it looked like on the day of our run :D
