some people laugh, some throw money and some just say "wow"

Okay soo my first weekend as a university student and its a LONG weekend. i beyond homesick so i wish i could have gone home somehow.. but i did the next best thing: GOT OUT OF THE HOUSE!!! Thanks to Brad Melchin and Scott Matkin, kaiti and i got to leave our apartment and had somewhere to go and someone to go with.

So friday night we went with those boys to the BYU vs UCLA volleyball game. (Which BYU won by the way) There we met some of their other friends, lots who are in our ward: Kayla, Sara and Brooke and Tyler, Matt, Jordan and Shay? and there was someone else there, but apparently he didn't make a great lasting impression on me cause i don't remember his name. Well after the volleyball game we went to deltaco cause Scott really wanted something to eat and its cheap.. we were gonna go to the prestige, but then jordan invited us all over to his house, so we went there. Jordan's place was soo nice and it put all of our homes to shame.

We soon learned that Jordan's rooommmate Shay did magic, and we all wanted to see some so jordan called him up and he came home and we had our own little magic show. He did all kinds of crazy card tricks that kept us in awe, and he said he was outta practice and kept gettin upset cause he would apparently mess up the trick, but none of us ever caught on to any of it. We all got a turn being the guinea pig for the trick and i think i was luckiest with the trick he performed for me.. mostly cause it wasn't a card trick. He had me write my initials on a quarter, and both sides of it.. then he took a can of sprite, which was an ordinary can of sprite (we got to do the inspection of the can) and then he took my quarter and somehow got it inside the can. it was pretty sweet and i think i know how he did it kinda.. but still to do that without us seeing is crazy. All in all friday night was a blast. After jordans we went back to brad and scotts apartment and played this game where you have to name songs with a certain word in them, or in a certain category. its funny cause i guess you don't actually name the songs, you have to SING them.

Saturday Kaiti and I went out with two of our roommates for the first time. We went to the mall with Tara and Rose, and then to target, and then did some more grocery shopping at walmart and then we went to krispy kremes (to get a free donut) and then coldstone. It was some good times.. and good rooommate bonding time.

Saturday night kaiti and i went on a date with scott and brad, and their roommmate matt and this girl nicole. i mean kaiti and i didn't know it was a date, but they paid for us. First we went to the icecats hockey game (for those of you who don't know who that is, it is the BYU hockey team). Lemme just say that it was like the worst hockey i have ever watched. It made for some good laughs though. I felt like i was in a movie during the national anthem, i feel so bad for laughing, but it was just too funny. This 8 year old girl gets up to sing.. and at first everyone was like aww cute.. and then she hits a wrong note, and another, and suddenly the key changes.. and then she stops singing, and the whining starts, and then she gets a prompting for the words " the rockets.." and she says the words and tries to sing them, but she just can't and she is like wailing in the mic and finally is like i, sob sob, can't.. and runs off.. i can't even do the story justice on here. The hockey game didn't get much better, with icecats checking their own team members, and slipping all over the place, which i can understand as the ice is slippery.

After words we went to the prestige, which i am like dying to watch again so i can really understand it. but all in all i think i enjoyed it.

Yesterday kaiti and i finally made it to our ward.. the right one that is. It seems like it'll be fun
i gotta run but here are some pictures:

Ang had said there was a funny story on your blog, so i came, i read, and i laughed outloud. (i think the lady in the cubicle across from me thinks i am crazy but whatever) that story about the little girl is just to funny. But then i felt bad cause i imagined it being Brylie...and now i feel like a horrible person.
