It's Been a While...

And I'm sorry. I'll use the "I've been terribly busy" excuse for now. I'm a college kid in a marching band who's football team tends to win a lot. I've got stuff to do.

So, it has been a while since I wrote a blog about anything really. I moved to a new room with a new roommate, who of course is way better than my other one was. I'm pretty sure it couldn't have gotten much worse than what I had before. Unfortunately, when I moved into my new room I guess there was something growing in the AC unit because I got terribly sick, and I recently discovered that I once again have a sinus infection. I think I got rid of the whatever it was that was in there though. Hopefully...

Anyway, my football team only lost twice all season. Two very disappointing losses, but we survived. We went to the Big 12 Championship, and dominated. And on the first of this year we killed UConn at the Fiesta Bowl. It was awesome. My first colorguard season at OU is officially over, and now what am I going to do? Haha.

Because of the Fiesta Bowl, I spent the past week in Arizona. What a whirlwind of events that occurred. Like everyone got sick, including my roommate meaning I slept in several other peoples' rooms. Lots of weird tension amongst the group in general. Fun running around and representing my team. A couple of parades where I felt like a celebrity, a Block Party, etc. And, I didn't have to pay for any of it. They even gave us money for food. Awesome, amiright? The only not-so-fun part was being on a bus for 24ish hours, especially after spending all day at an airport trying to get back to Norman from Sacramento in time to get on the bus. But, I got to ride the bus with one of my favorite people, and being on the two-bus was definitely an experience. See the tubas ride the two-bus (ha get it?) and they have all sorts of... interesting aspects to their two-bus tradition. It wasn't bad though. It was entertaining to say the least.

My performance went very well, and I felt the energy for real. I almost hit Megan, our twirler, with my flag though because she was basically in my spot, and my face was definitely magnified times like a thousand on the big screen. All in a days work, right? Haha. Apparently I was on tv taking a picture because my parents were watching and said they saw me. Is it weird that I have been on tv several times within the past couple of months? Its weird how different my life is now.

So, to school. I did well this semester. I had colorguard, chemistry, calculus, philosophy and engineering and I got an A in every class except Chemistry. I got a B. But Im proud of that B because I worked very hard to get it. It was definitely my most difficult class. Im signed up for a crazy schedule this coming semester so hopefully I'm up for the challenge. I think I am.

I've acquired some really good friends at OU, none of which I'm ready to give up just yet. Just a little shout out to Lauren Woodbury, Chauntel LaMunyon, Chrissy Braswell, Lindsey Morrison, Lauren Pettit, Ryan King, Chris Nail, and hey there's probably a few more I just missed. No harm done. Lol. I love these people. They make me feel at home even when Im so far away.

Speaking of home, after finals I flew out to Cali until I had to leave for the fiesta bowl, and Ill be flying back out tomorrow for the remainder of my break. Yes that is a lot of flying. Going home made me realize how much I terribly miss my friends and my family. I definitely dont take time spent with them for granted now. Being home was great. Yay for In n Out burger. Christmas was awesome at home and definitely went the same as usual. Im not complaining.

I dont really know what else to talk about, but Im sure Ill think of a lot once I post this. Of course. Well, love you all!
