dear mother nature,

but there is a rumor floating around that it is supposed to snow all weekend.
i'm writing to you so you can dispel this silly rumor
and tell all the weather men they are wrong.

why i love utah

these pics are from spring break in st. george.

didn't know dixie rock could have so many adventures.

while we were here,
home was experiencing snow storms.

only in utah could you experience red rock
and blizzards in one day.
that's why i love it here.

down on morse's farm...

the landlords have left for vaca.
which means we are in charge of the "farm."
every morning we feed:
the fish
the cat
and the chickens.

every night we:
bring in the cat food,
collect the eggs,
and close the chicken coop.

a not so silent weekend

a major conference called Deaf Studies Today! was a major happening at uvu.
(as if you didn't notice the mass of deaf people everywhere you looked in orem.)

it was 3 days jammed packed with workshops, movies, food, keynote speakers, food, panels, food, friends, teachers, interpreters, food, poets, and deaf studies pioneers.

one of those amazing pioneers is this lovely lady: flavia.
not only does she kick everyone's butt at everything
but she is my teacher/mentor/coach/friend.
she basically ran this show.

how did i get so lucky to even associate with her??
i'm sure some of you feel the same.

and this lovely clan got me through my college experience:

will: taught me to never give up on what seemed like a lost cause.
(i also credit him with my knowledge of ASL swear words.)
flavia: taught me to smile. always. as well as to find my voice in such a divided world.
bryan: was the one who convinced me to transfer from byu to uvu.
(totally against the trend.)
dale: besides knowing to never volunteer in class,
he taught me "interpreting is what you do, it's not who you are."

i'm graduating in a few weeks. (yay.)
and couldn't be more grateful for my college experience.
after this conference i realized what kind of people i have around me:
professors, mentors, and especially the friends i have made.
i feel like one of a kind for such an incredible 4 years.

as rachel would say, "wolverine for life!"
