What have I been up to?  Let me tell you.  I did the most amazing ab workout video with some girls from my floor.  It was quite intense and now we will all have washboard abs.  Workout videos are very entertaining (and useful).  Other than staying in shape, I've been doing the usual stuff: class, work, friends.  
Lunch was pretty amazing too.  I ate a pumpkin bagel with pumpkin shmear (cream cheese) and a pumpkin muffin.  I worked at Noah's Bagels today so that's where I got my lunch too.  And yes, it was delicious.

Out and About

Last weekend our hall went to Whidbey Island for a retreat.  We were there just one night and we stayed at Camp Casey.  It was a good time to get to know more girls on my floor.  Mostly freshmen went and as you can see, it was very beautiful there.

Bonding Time!

Tonight we have Fusion which is basically every amazing thing rolled into one event.  Actually not exactly, it's really just where each floor performs something in the main square.  Beforehand we eat together as a floor and after we do floor traditions... which should be ridiculously fun or embarrassing (whatever we make of it).  We are doing a dance for our performance and we have been practicing it the last two nights and still have one more practice till showtime.  If I could describe it in one word I would just say, "fantastic" or "exceptional" or "wonderful."  So good thing I can use more than one word to describe it.

Seattle has some really amazing parks! Here are some pictures from Kerry Park, Gasworks Park, and Olympic Sculpture Park.  Gasworks (the middle two pictures) has a really good view in addition to the actual "gasworks" that you see in the picture and it has picnic area, lots of grass, and is just very cool.  There were knights there!  The sculpture in the last photo is by Alexander Calder who has made some other really fascinating sculptures and mobiles.  I studied about him in my high school art class so it was great to actually see his work in real life.  This piece was called "Eagle."

Rain, rain, don't go away!

I have wonderful news! It is finally raining! Up to this point it has been sunny which is nice, except it can sometimes get pretty warm walking uphill (more like hiking up to my dorm).  This morning it was just sprinkling and it was nice and refreshing to walk to work (which is across campus from where I live) in the rain.  Then I stood outside for awhile on the phone earlier this afternoon when it was lightly coming down...and now its coming down steadily and beautifully.  The weather is still warm enough that I wore a dress today, which is very fun because I love dresses. 

I am so stoked that it is Friday! I went to class this morning and worked for an hour and now I'm done until Monday at 8am.  I'm sure this weekend will be amazing, I am probably going to an art gallery for my art class and who knows what else.
