First, some of the greatest things in Albuquerque -- the sunsets. I decided to take a few shots through my dorm window, and they didn't turn out too bad:
This week, I was commissioned by the one and only Sean Naegle to write a love song for his girl. I used lyrics from a poem that he wrote, changed them up a bit, and put them to music. And, since I wrote most of the final lyrics, I also get to use it as one of my love song, so it became my Valentine serenading song. Here I am while I was in the process of practicing and perfecting it:
Well, I'm a pretty lame person, so I had no ideas of what to do for Valentine's Day other than sit in my dorm and work on homework, maybe strumming on the gee-tar and singing a depressing love song or two. Luckily, I got a call from Sara Hardy telling me that she and Kirsten Johnson wanted to go on a double date. So last night, I went out with Sara and Sean Larson went out with Kirsten. We had a blast eating dessert at Flying Star, and then we headed over to Wal-Mart. We split up, and each couple got $2 to spend on a Valentine's gift for the other couple. Here's the sketchy gift Sean and Kirsten purchased for me and Sara:
I went to early morning seminary to show Naegle the song, and afterwards I stopped by my house to find my parents had gotten me more Valentine presents! Look, another lion and more junk food! My parents know me all too well...
Sara and I happened to find goldfish for 28¢ a piece, so we bought them 6 goldfish. I have no idea what they're going to do with them, but it makes for a good story.
Since I got home a little late, I was a bit tired while working out this morning, but luckily I have a 4 hour break between my weight training class and Calculus, so I just got up from a nice nap (hence the blogging enthusiasm). Have a splendid Post-Valentine's Day, everybody!
