The Readers Digest Version

So I know its been a while... in an ironic twist of fate, (and you know how i live for irony) I've been too busy living my life to blog about it.  But, I have been keeping track of my crazy life in my journal... so we're good.  I guess if you want to see what I've been doing you could look at the pictures I'm tagged in on facebook.

Note: not my pictures, I rely solely on photos other people have taken to document my life.

In better news, there is nothing to do in Alaska in the winter (or so I hear) so I will probably have tons of time to bestow on you, my blog readers.

For now, I leave you with some thoughts that will hopefully encapsulate the bulk of my summer in Alaska.

I like attainable goals.
I had a head cold for a month.
Did you know that Morgan Freeman is basically the coolest?  Not only was he the president of South Africa, head of a major corporation, a chauffeur, plus the voice from above in life--but he managed to do it all while incarcerated in Shawshank prison.  They even got Nelson Mandela to play him in a movie... seriously, how cool is that?
I get all my current events this summer from the Colbert Report.
If you don't sleep you can pack in more extracurricular activites.
People are surprisingly willing to change their plans if they know other people are doing other things.  Huh.
I don't like hand guns.  Rifles sure, hand guns no.  They feel less like recreation and more like a murder weapon.
Pizza is the best!
Apparently I'm an expert cake baker... question mark?
Canoe portaging, biking, fishing, hiking, mountain-climbing (yes different than hiking.  It involves reaching an actual summit of an actual mountain).
We drove six hours to go to a dance.  Each way.
I love being on a boat.  Its basically my favorite.

Typical movies, songs, and activities:

The Colbert Report
Dancing (particularly impromptu dance parties)
Party all the time
Arrested Development
CJ's- 39 cent hand scooped dreyers ice cream.  Does it get any better?  I submit that it does not!

Notice the lack of sleep on this list

Some catch-phrases:

The worst!
You're the best!
I feel so good about that.
Double rainbow--it's so vivid!
Yellow card!
I know, right?

And now everyone is gone... well.  Not everyone.  There are still technically some people living in the state of Alaska.  But their number is significantly decreased.  And now with less people, my social life is definitely winding down to a walking pace.

  1. So does this mean that you are staying in Alaska for the winter? Does that mean you won't be here to be my slave when the baby is born?? I am glad to hear that you have been having fun.
