A Fresh Start and Some Catching Up!

Happy New Year!!!!

I have been such a slacker! Since Thanksgiving, I have done A LOT!! I finished fall semester classes in the middle of december which was a total relief. I enjoyed the holiday season and did a lot of fun stuff from parties to family traditions. I love all of the traditions that take place during the holidays. We make gingerbread men and eat chicken simon and garfunkel (SO GOOD) and we see the Nutcracker ballet followed by Benihanas and of course do a lot of family hopping on Christmas day. I had a great Christmas. It was the first time I slept back at my parents house since I moved out and it was nice to get to be around them a lot. It's always sad when the holiday season is over, but it's onward and upward from there.

For New Years, I rang it in with my good friends from high school. We always have a good time. I love it when we get to hang out because it seems to be less and less with all of our crazy lives!

The new year has been going well for me so far, I have just been working and cleaning my apartment. It has been a nice break from school but I am honeslty so ready to get back to school! This last week has been really boring for me. I'm enjoying it though because I know as soon as two weeks back in school goes by I will be wishing I could relax a bit. Such is life!

One thing I have lacked on posting about is the AMAZING University of Utah football team and all of their glory and success!!!! I had the opportunity to take pictures of the MUSS from the field which was a fun experience. I am so glad I got to be a member of the MUSS board during this phenomenal season. I traveled on the bus to San Diego with a bunch of friends which was an awesome time. The Utes had a perfect season, 12-0! They got invited to play Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on January 2nd. The Utes shocked 89% of the nation by more than proving their outstanding abilities and "seal-clubbed" the Crimson Tide. Utah finished off with the ONLY undefeated season in the nation. 13-0. They were ranked #2 behind Florida, but I believe they are #1. They have nothing else to prove. They did amazing. It has been so fun to be a part of University of Utah history. I'm looking forward to next season already! And a little congrats to my friend Mallory for being the MUSS president for next season! She is totally deserving and extremely dedicated to the Utes!!
