Economics... whats that?

Well, here I am sitting in my economics class and am finding that I don't any desire to pay attention whatsoever. Although I did somehow pull myself out of my apartment and walk all the way up here just to be bored to death by this "fun" econ professor for 90 minutes. Who wouldn't want to do this? Who wouldn't want to go to college? Seriously, could life be any better? hehe Ok, it really isn't that bad. I have learned a lot from this class but to put it simply, I am glad that there are many types and varieties of people in this world. This way i am allowed to choose what I would like to do for life and I won't have to be forced into being an economist. For all those out there who do understand economics, more power to ya!!

p.s. Did I ever mention how cool it is that I can access the internet from anywhere on campus? Such a relief;)

Viva Las Vegas

Ok, so it has been a while since I have blogged... Brett! hehe Yes I did end up taking my first road trip ever and it was super sweet! We had a great time driving a total of 815 miles. Did you know that there is an order to the whole driving system when taking a road trip? I do now. Let me explain. The driver does nothing but drive(obviously). The one in the passenger seat is in charge of trash and being the DJ. The person(s) in the back are in charge of the treats. Well, I thought it was pretty cool that there was a system!!!
We started this excursion on Friday and stayed at Jake Nielson's house that night. Took off the next morning to see Vegas. We ended up going on 2 different roller coasters and watching the infamous Bellagio fountains!! Man was that awesome. I would say that the trip was worth just because we got to see those!!!! We ate at a buffet that night and we were all so tired that we decided to leave at about 9:30. So, I guess you could say that we got out of there before too many crazy things started happening.
Overall it was a total success and a lot of fun to just leave for the weekend and not think at all about school!! Seriously, college is getting tougher and tougher. I am not sure yet whether that is because the semester is coming to a close or as summer nears, the desire to do homework fades. All in all this trip was a much needed relaxant to help me come back and get even more focused on school!
