Spring "Aggie Blue"

At the end of summer last year I went to a fall leadership conference up here at Utah State called "Aggie Blue". This past week we had a little reunion with all the students that attended this leadership conference. It was way fun! We had a big raffle and everybody got free Costa Vida. then we had a guest speaker come in and talk about many different things that were very helpful to me. I have always struggled with taking the initiative and setting too small of goals. He hit those two points right on the nose. I would recommend "Aggie Blue" to any student that is now or in the future going to attend Utah State, it is a great learning and building experience!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!

Yep, Froze our bums off this morning... so last night my friend Tyson and I were debating on what we should today since we were out of school for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. So I threw out the idea to go fly fishing up the Logan river which sounded really good last night while we were sitting in our nice warm house watching 24. This morning was a different story. I woke up to a fresh sheet of snow on my windshield and the desire to fish had completely subsided. But later on the weather warmed up a little and we headed up the canyon about twenty minutes from Utah State ready for anything... so we thought. The water was freezing cold, even with our sweats, wool socks, sweaters, jackets, waders, and hats. My toes nearly fell off I swear! So it was cold but at least we didn't catch any fish...
Just another great holiday fishing trip
It was all redeemed tonight when we went to KFC with some friends and had fried chicken and kool-aid squeeze its. I love holidays

Spring Semester

Okay so I just wrote this pretty long post and I deleted it just as I was finishing, so this is going to now be a short post. I type slow as my old Volkswagen Bus drove. Anyway, it's the first day of Spring semester up here at Utah State. I went to Biology this morning and was real happy to see a few friends in the class that I could sit with... Biology isn't my most favoritist subject I'm taking up here. But I am really excited about my fly tying class this Thursday, Who knew it would be so fun to tie threads and feathers together to look like bugs to trick fish into eating? I feel like I'm in 4th grade again playing with "Creepy Crawlers" Ha! I know these kids might be playing with spaghetti but don't you dare try and say that you don't remember Creepy Crawlers! What a good day...
