The Real "Freshman 15".. Except it's only 10.

So. Life in college. It's pretty crazy, even though I live at home. But I love it. and it has bequeathed me with some knowledges. Here they are.

The 10 things I learned my first month  of College: 

 1) Concept Retention: Unlike high school, falling asleep on your textbook and hoping to learn by osmosis isn't gonna cut it.

-Oddly enough, we actually theorized if this could really be possible. Needless to say, it's a work in progress...

 2) Undeniable Truth: No matter how many times you try to rub a lamp to get three wishes, pay someone else to do it, or attempt to sell your soul to the devil, your homework will still be sitting there at 11:30 at night, unfinished.
-As I have learned, homework is so evil even the devil won't touch it.

3) Perspective: Sometimes it's ok to just take a 4.5 out of 10 on a low weighted homework assignment instead of ending up in the state hospital.
-I mowed the lawn for the state hospital. I've seen what happens. not pretty.

4) Procrastination: If you're not procrastinating your homework and hanging out with friends instead in college, you better be a graduate student or something.
-As Calvin and Hobbes always said, "leaving my homework till the last minute teaches me important life lessons."
"Such as?"
"Procrastination and Rationalization."

5) Organization: A way for college kids to fit more crap into less time.
-Blindly scheduling 7 time consuming events in addition to school and studying before the hours of 5 PM is not wise. Note to self: find a personal assistant/ paper planner. 

6) Balance:Too much studying=boring, bland and socially inept.
-life is really REALLY boring when you don't live on campus with your friends, and don't have an all sports pass. can't wait for winter semester...

7)  Reality Check: College=busy
- homework isn't all I have to do on a given night. I still have to fix a computer, get my clothes ready for an interview, fufill my calling, help around the house where I can and I have a job. Livin' it up Right?

8) Rationalization: Facebook is of Satan. 
-I get on to type a paper or look at a syllabus, and I always end up there. It's the slippery slope of time wasting. "I'll only be on for a second... haha funny cats... shut up no one likes drama... Holy Cow! 3 hours?!?"

9) Food: An empty stomach is an empty mind which means bad grades.
-it's totally true. I can't focus on homework or anything until I've eaten. It's ridiculous how much I spend because I forget to bring food from home too. Anyone wanna open a Macey's in my backpack?

10) Sleep: The old addage holds true. You have three options, Sleep, Good Grades, and a Social Life; chose two. 
-I actually had to give myself a curfew to get my friends (who aren't going to college, they don't understand yet) out of my house so I can get sleep!

What weirdies do with spare time

I have to post this picture first. Its my brudder with his "I'm extremely cold and tired but I lack the bodily function to move my facial muscles" face.
So i got really bored. And then we went on this scout trip. it went a little something like this:
We get there, mess around, get yelled at for being us, and then go cross country skiing and we make everyone jealous cuz we were just as sweaty and gross and tired as everyone else, but we had a killer time despite that fact.

My Crews First group at the starting line

Most everybody at the finish line (also the starting line)

Our whole group with two studly beasts with matching hats in the front.

And of course the Brother Porter Brown Cow Face

The start of the preparation.

I know I really don't have any followers, and I probably never will, but maybe this will entice you. I am going to start blogging about the zombie apocalypse. more importantly what I will be doing to prepare and what my plans are. Just FWI. if interested, take a look, you might go buy some ammo or venus fly traps or something.

Tis the season!

So this years rugby season offically kicks off tomorrow. I can't wait im so excited!! I'm sure someone out there is thinking, "Holy cow turds!! this guy is friggin crazy!! why does he want to go out to a big field full of polynesians and get the living crap beaten out of him over and over again?" well the answer to that is this: "because my whole team does it too. you can't enjoy getting beaten to a bloody pulp unless you enjoy it with your fellow teenagers who also delight in such a pass time :). but if anybody is interested, guys or gals, send me a message or txt me or something, no matter how old you are, and ill hook you up. even if you only wanna watch. It's an excellently refined and skill-requiring game thats intense. so intense, you might just wet yourself on the sidelines. so come watch us make fools of ourselves. :)

Ode to the busy life... i want OUT!

So. Basically I've been so busy between rugby and school and trying (emphasis on the trying part) to have a social life, move on from some old flairs, and keep myself committed to trying to get one girl(I finally realized that girls aren't like pokemon. theres no guy that uses the phrase "gotta catch 'em all" and still have friends of the opposite gender. hey, thats a corny metaphor. i might use that. quick. copyright it.) that i haven't had time to blog. so sorry. life just decided that it would be funny to see me juggle 60 different things at a time.
And, on top of everything, Valentines day is this weekend. While I am in Vegas for a rugby tournament. Now don't get me wrong, nothin' wrong with Vegas, or rugby, But for most teenagers, Valentines day is actually Happy-singles-awareness-day-you're-too-lame-to-have-a-special-someone Day. That's why they say it sucks to be single on Valentines Day. So Bah Lovebug. Ebaneezer Scrooge isn't pumped for valentines day. at least i got to spend it with someone last year. this year its just depressing, ill tell you what.
Anyway, there is a girl that I have been working on, but I'm not sure if it'll ever go anywhere. shes a great chicka, but shes like 8 months older than me. age isn't the problem, but she'll go off to college next year, leaving me, whether we actually get together or not, completely clueless. Then after that, my "old flair" will be spending the summer in our pleasant little town of ze 801 area. talk about conflict. not to mention getting good grades (which some the last little while are struggling..) playing and exercising hard, finishing up this byu class, staying on top of homework, doing church stuff, and trying to get closer to sum womans. oh well. can't wait till next year. itll all be soooo easy. just college classes and orchestra. cant wait. ttyl ya'll.

It's Quote Day!!

Ok. so i decided that this blog will be my favoritest quotes and maybe some commentary.

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake."
~Napoleon Bonaparte~
- I totally agree with this. last night when seth was going to fold in indian poker and mary went to stop him, i told seth it was totally his choice. the man folded with an ace of spades.

#2 "I once heard two ladies going on and on about the pains of childbirth and how men don't seem to know what real pain is. I asked if either of them ever got themselves caught in a zipper."
~Emo Phillips~
-Seriously though, do you know how much that hurts? honestly, i think that and passing a kidney stone are comparable, becuase seriously, with the kidney stone, same concept. like trying to push a car out of a pinhole.

#3 "Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you've got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem. Maybe you should grab a best friend and get rid of the body before you do the wash."
~Jerry Sienfeld~
-I love how all industries make a product that aids in crime. so pathetic. a similar quote goes: "a good friend will take you to the hospital after a painful stunt. a best friend will be sitting next to you in the same condition, saying "boy, did we screw up.""

and now for random lyrics: We're having a heatwave, a tropical heatwave. The temperature's rising, it isn't surprising, She certainly can can-can.

aight. so today, I had mutual at six instead of seven. the reason was that i had planned to have a dutch oven dinner for our priest quorum. It turned out to be a sucess! granted, there were only four priests including me and then our leader, but still, it was great! first we had sausage with sauted onions and peppers, in a suprisingly scrumptious barbeque-grape-jam sauce. I was completely taken by surprise when my priests advisor added this to the mix. however, it was the equivilent of a kind of sweet and sour sauce taste. And how it ticked my taste buds. (tickle my taste buds? oh what a terrible phrase, however true!) Then we baked some butt-kickin' bisquits, and to top it all off, a deliciously prepared blueberry peach cobbler! And the best part was I brought it home because it was cooked in our dutch oven, and i got to share it with my family!!! :D
I can't wait to cook in that thing again!!!! I'm a pro and all, so it would be fantastic!!!
