Invitation to Hitchhike

Invitation to Hitchhike

There are many forms of public transportation that those of us who love the environment take advantage of. (Or those of us who don’t have a car. Either way). You can take the Front Runner, which is a modernized train, offering nice cozy chairs, two levels, bathrooms, and air-conditioning. There is also TRAX, which are older, have loud beepers that make your ear drums bleed when they go off announcing the doors are closing, and which has unspoken rules that everyone seems to consent to, which I will talk about at a later time. You have your busses, and occasional taxi, and at the University campus you have the shuttles which don’t have a scheduled time and it’s almost faster to just walk to class than wait for the shuttle. Then you also have hitch hiking! I have used all the above forms of transportation besides hitch hiking. I have never hitch hiked, but I suppose today I came as close to it as I ever will.

Disney Princesses

Disney Princesses

So, I’m nineteen. And I still LOVE Disney Princesses. It’s odd, because I always liked them as a little girl, but not as much as I do now. The last time we went to Disneyland (3 years ago), my mom and I were both more excited to get pictures of the Disney Princesses than my younger sister (who was the ideal age to be in love with the Princesses.)

Skies

Skies

This post won’t be anything exciting, but I just wanted to comment on the beautiful skies that the Salt Lake Valley has gotten the last few days. I always take time to notice the scenery around me. Too often we get caught up in our own selfish lives that make us sad and depressed.

Skate Skiing Mountain Dell

Skate Skiing Mountain Dell

We have (finally) found our winter sport: Skate Skiing! Colton, Bree, Ben, and I went to a free REI sponsored event at Mountain Dell golf course, where they offered snowshoeing, classic, and skate skiing lessons all for free! There were also samples of hot chocolate and energy drinks. I didn’t think it would go so well, especially since I fell twice in my regular shoes walking down to the sign-up tent (boots from Wal-mart offer NO traction!)
