It's to self

Your about to go into work. Which consists of a filthy home and a bathroom you can't use. Your eye has been twitching for 4 days off and on. Your hair hurts and your at the point of being so broke its beyond unfunny. Let's not even get started on the car. But! It works out every time and God didn't put us on this earth to fail.

Lazy Summer

I don't know what it is. This summer season has been taking its tole. I basically don't want to do anything. Every chance I get I run away (or get kidnapped) to the mountains. Its kind of a slice of heaven. The thing about the mountains is, you may think its going to be swimming weather up there because at 97 degrees its swimming weather in the city. But the second you hit those high altitudes that temp drops. Well yesterday it was 94 in the mountains. Since  worked canceled before you could say freedom I was trucking it up the hill. The boyfriend and I went to check out his latest swimming hole find. We played in the pool of a waterfall while fish bit our knees and went on an adventure hiking up the river.

After the river we grabbed some Thrifty's ice cream and headed to the Coloma pioneer cemetary. We've been once before at night. This time I wanted to see it in the day light. Its a really neat place full of California gold rush history. We even bumped into some fancy ghost hunters from Nevada. We ended our day with some record playing.

Its so hard to get anything done with that tempting you. Tomorrow we are going to visit my Baba and camp on the beach. close yet so far away from Friday.

So much has been going on. This week has been really stressful. Of course my hormones know exactly what is going on in my life and kick in dragon time in full effect. So aside from my insta-dump here are some goings on:

- Sac state orientation down. It was kind of horrific. Very intimidating. But I am slowly starting to get excited to start school. I have settled into the concentration I like within the umbrella of psychology and that should be a very interesting journey.

- I got a boyfriend. A new one. He is amazing and I am completely smitten with him. We go on lots of adventures. Theres a song that comes on that makes my heart flutter and think happy thoughts. yup. Those silly butterflies.

- Summer school starts July 9th. Sign II here I come.

Transitions aren't supposed to be painless. If you can think back its a lot like growing pains when your bones shift around when your young. This may be tumultuous but I know someone up there is looking out for me and that everything is going to turn out ok.

Home is where I'm alone with you

I had the most amazing weekend let me tell you. I went up to the LDS young women's camp with a friend and his families ward to open up the cabins and other service projects. We got there really late. Naturally we headed straight for the fire pit with our s'mores fixins. Best. s'mores. of. My. LIFE!!! Andes mints people! They are the best. But there is this whole process to making these things to die for that I don't think I could replicate. I slept on the back porch of the main hall. It was amazing. The moon was huge and you could barely see any stars. After cleaning dishes, eating break fast, and sweeping and dusting 4 out of 7 cabins we took off on our own. We galavanted around this really awesome abandoned ski resort with magnificent views of Sierras. Who would have thought running around that place would be probably the most seamless and special moment I've had in quite some time. Spiritual. After that we went around a few other places in the mountains, went shooting (my aim sucks more than I thought it did), and ended the adventure with ice cold swimming. I literally feel like I was dreaming. I fear I am completely hooked on the mountains. Going up there is the best escape from all the stress and bustle of every day "city" life. I can't wait to spend more time there. Oh! Plus we saw our first bear!! I never want to forget this past weekend.
