Biggest "mountain" Ever

Today, being Memorial Day, a few of us (Levi, Cassie, Carol, Katie, Marty and I) decided to go and hike R mountain. I am not sure what the R stand for, probably Rexburg, but it was something I have never done before nor my roommates. At noon we all set off for a "breeze" of a hike? Well what I thought would be a breeze.

THIS WAS NOT A BREEZE! My roommates were dying much more than I was, but my oh
my... can you say straight up. The very last quarter of a mile had a chain for you to hold on to, to ensure a safer trip.

Once we all reached the top we took a couple of pictures, after a few of the roommates took some deep breaths, threw up a little granola bar and drank some water of course. Overall, it was a great weekend. After a week of 4 tests, 2 huge projects, homework, and soccer and football game, a 3 day weekend was a must. I also discovered that I am now addicted to gatorade2. It just is amazing! I think I have drank 20 bottles this entire weekend!
Here are a couple of pictures from the hike today.
Hike R Mountain.... CHECK!

It's Only Wednesday?

School is hard. School is lame. School is necessary to get gain.

My life right now is great. It is very simple. Not complex and lack of adventure. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I decided that I need to make a list of things to accomplish this semester here in Rexburg. It will be my last summer here and there are tons of things that I don't want to look back and wish I had done.

My Last Duties in Rexburg

1. Spend at least a day in Rexburg
2. Go to the Ice Caves
3. Go to Jackson Hole
4. Swim in the Snake River
5. Hike R Mountain
6. (for you dad.. I honestly was thinking about it, but just forgot to write it) YELLOWSTONE!

I'm sure I will add more to the list as the rest of the semester goes on. AND pictures will be taken!

My life as a college student...

Mothers day weekend was by far the best I have had in a VERY long time. Not only did I get all my homework done THURSDAY NIGHT, but I got to have the presence of my parents ALL weekend! I was too excited to cry, but I sure am grateful for those two special people.
We spend the weekend in Utah visiting with family. It was pretty awesome to see everybody and catch up. If you are not related some how to my family, you are missing out. Being a Bullock is pretty much the best thing on earth. I got a haircut by my talented cousin Whitney. She wacked a lot of my hair off, but it looks awesome. I have been getting lots of compliments on my hew sexy hair. (pictures.... whoops!). Thanks to my mom I also got a new pair of jeans! Woot Woot! Can I say there is nothing like a new pair of jeans. I think I have worn them every day sense I got back to school. I have been told that my bum just looks fantastic in them. ;D I like hearing that!
Most of the weekend was spend just hanging out at my grandparents house. We attempted going to the Real Soccer game, but they rescheduled the game for earlier in the day without our knowing. Basically, they did not want us Washington people there. Bad luck you see. I was able to see my two nephews, Cadyn and Connor for the first time since they were born. Those boys are CUTE! It was great to see them and finally have a mental image of them. There mother... still a total tool...
Since I have been back I have had some exciting things happen. You might be thinking to yourself... what are those things Poopsie? Let me tell you. SCHOOL! I love my major. It is what I want to do with my life and I can't imagine doing anything else. School on the other hand is full of projects, lessons (my favorite part), teachers that decided they do not want to explain their expectations but expect us to when we teach, and stupid college students asking the SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN! How many times do you need to be told that you are to type it in WORD!!! Oh my snot! I could slap these people. Not only am I learning curriculum, but I am learning patience as well. Goodness! Every day I come home a little stressed and every day I get it all done, and sleep. What can I say, my life is excited! Shannon I know you want to live through me, but trust me, this is not something you want to do again. Eh!

Dirt and twisted ankles

What a weekend! I have nothing to say about my week because it was long, full of study groups, projects, homework and talks. Can I just say I am sick of talking. Is there such a thing as talking something to death? I happen to think there is and I am sick of it! I just need to figure out a way to get rid of it. ANYWAYS!

My great weekend.... At noon Saturday morning I was awakened by a familiar Frog ring tone. With great upsettness I answered well prepared to chew the person out for calling me oh so early on a saturday morning. To my surprise I was greeted with a warning to be dressed in jeans, shoes, and a sweatshirt and to be ready in 10 minutes. I attempted to get him (yes Levi) to tell me what was going on and that this better be good or some serious consequences were going to take place. All I got out of him was that I should be prepared to get dirty. As a side note... this is not a good idea to do to someone who NEVER gets to sleep in.

Exactly 10 minutes later, there was a knock on the door and I was greeted by Mr. Levi himself... with a disgusting smile on his face. He handed me a diet pepsi (trying to win some points back) and then blind folded me. Now... this normally would NOT be okay. I would have been screaming and punching in places that may have left his future wife a little disappointed, but as it being so early I went with it. Silly me!
We drove for what seemed like seconds (it only felt like this because I fell back asleep), when he pulled off on the side of the road. He then gets out of the truck and leaves me in there... ALONE... WITH NO MUSIC!!.... AND THE DOORS LOCKED! I'm not going to lie... I was beginning to worry. After a few minutes I heard a roar of an engine. To my surprise.... he had borrow a four wheeler! Now I have never been four wheeling before. And I was a little nervous, but that never stops me. We road around for about an hour because it started to snow (stupid rexburg!). The best part was when I was driving and Levi (idiot) put his foot down because he thought we were tipping (we were not) and his foot got caught in the tire!! hahahahaha. But get this.. He didn't tell me right away. He couldn't get the words out to tell me to brake so I dragged his foot for a couple of feet. I felt bad, but I could not hide the laughter. And he was worried about hurting me.
Pretty much it was great and a fun surprise.... but I sure hope he has learned a couple of lessons of trying to be spontaneous with me.

No Mom and Heather, we did not take any pictures. For my lack of creative genes and picture taking skills... the camera was left at home. Once again I blame genetics and the fact that it was early.
