New hair cut, here are the pics:)

The Campout

Well, I think college has knocked some sense OUT of me... Why is this
you may wonder? Well let me explain. At the moment I am sitting in a
tent in front of the Marriott Center at BYU, taking my shift at the
tent. Apparently, my roommates felt it necessary to camp out in front
of the building for the BYU vs UTAH basketball on Saturday in order to
get good seats. You see, because this is such a big game there are
always a million people trying to get in and they limit the amount of
people that can sit in the student section. So here we are, camping
less than a mile from where we live in the freezing weather. But
despite the cold we are keeping pretty warm. We have a mountain of
blankets and sleeping bags and such, so it's not too bad. So the
game is on Saturday, and we have been here since Thursday evening!
Crazy, yes. Fun, yes. Cold, YES! There always has to be someone in
the tent or else someone can come steal your place in line, so we got
it all worked out so everyone has a shift in between their class
schedule. So it actually worked out quite nicely. Oh I forgot to say
how many other people are here. Well we are already tent #21 and
people are still setting up at least 5 tents behind us as well. People
here are crazy, the first few tents have been here since Monday. And
yes, i do realize that i am crazy too for doing the same thing But it
is still Ridiculousness, seriously. And the funny thing is that i
honestly really don't care about basketball at all, but we're all
having a good time anyways:) it's a fun adventure if nothing else:)
Oh and as we were setting up our tent yesterday a reporter from the
Daily Herald interviewed us and asked us why we were here so early and
got the scoop:) he said he was a web journalist so if he even uses our
clip then it'll be online at the Daily So you all will
have to keep an eye out for my 5 minutes of fame:)

Here is the link to the Daily Herald interview:

It was definitely a fun adventure but I'm pretty sure I will not EVER be doing that again.
Sure, it was a good one time experience but never again:) Here are some pictures of it below.
There aren't too many, but enough that you should get the idea of what it was like:)

The first picture is of Melinda and I right after we got the tent all set up. We were still happy and having fun at that point...hence all the smiles:)

This is just Mel talking on the phone and working on homework:)

This next picture is of our tent and the line of tents that were near. Note: these were not even close to all of the tents that were there, it's just all i could fit in the picture.
Okay, this next picture has a story behind it. The first night at the tent we got lots of things together for us to take to the tent with us to keep us warm. So Melinda wanted to make some hand warmers by warming up rice and putting it in a sock for us to hold in our pockets. So, she put some rice in a cup and put it in the microwave for a minute. To my surprise, she kept on adding 30 seconds until it had been in there for a couple of minutes. So I asked her how long she normally put them in for beacuse that seemed like a really long time to me. SHe said they were fine and that she had done this a million times before. Anyways, so I finally had to check on them to see if they really were okay. Well, they weren't. The rice was completely black, and they had gotten so hot that they burned a hole through the bottom of my cup! It was gross, but really funny:)
Alright and here are just a bunch of pics from the tent and the game:

Alright if you look on the first row in the 4th seat in, is Elder Bednar:) He was right
across from us in the stadium and he had front row seats. Betcha he didn't have to camp out, and he STILL
got better seats than we did. Oh well, just the joys of being a poor/crazy college student:)
