The Good News:
On a whim I ran a 5K saturday with some of my friends. It was put on by the UA's multicultural club or something. We basically signed up because registration was free and you got a t-shirt. Once we arrived we discovered they also had tons of water bottles & granola bars & fruit. Free shirt and free food? I believe you just made any poor college student's day right there. Well then I ended up placing 3rd so I also got a $20 giftcard to Nike! hooray (I love Nike)
The Bad News:
The giftcard came in this cute little mini-shoebox... it was so cool! Well, as I was walking across campus with Mallory, Joseph, and Jessica I decided to try and see how many free granola bars I could hide in this fascinating little box [only 3 in case you were wondering--but that has no relevance to "the bad news"]. The bad news is: I was too busy fiddling with my exciting box to notice where I was going and... BAM. Yep. I walked right into a pole. Hard. Seriously. Everyone I was walking with kept going and didn't realize what I had done until they turned back a second later to see me staring at the pole with a dazed look on my face & tears welling up in my eyes. Suffice it to say that one will NOT be on re-play in Heaven.
You'd think I would have learned to watch where I am going after this incident, but I'm a little slow sometimes... and now I'll probably even be a little slower.
To make matters worse it gave me a gigantic goose egg RIGHT in the middle of my forehead. Oh did I mention that later in the day I would be teaching at a 7-stake Priest/Laurel conference? It took some very strategic parting of my hair to hide that one...
Anyways... more good news!
At the youth conference they fed us (Jessica & I) lunch AND snacks AND dinner. If you didn't do the math: that's 3 free meals in one day. And, if nothing else, that is definitely something worth blogging about.
**Side note to my concerned sisters: Just so you know, I'm not starving down here... just being frugal :)
