Come Fly With Me

My friend Mike and I went flying last week - It was amazing!

This is the cute little plane that we rode in

What this picture is showing is mike's great flying skills. He was making the tip of his wing go around the center of multiple crop circles. The angles were super steep, but I loved every moment of it! This technique is called "figure 8's"

Proof that I actually did it

I had a teacher from one of my education courses who recently emailed me about this poem, stating that it explains her life. I thought it was pretty profound so I thought I would share it.

The Way It Is

There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
~ William Stafford ~

Life is life, tragedies happen, suffering occurs, but its the steadiness of our own convictions that define and dictate who we are. My hope is that our convictions and defining traits will allow us to be able to coexist in this universe nicely and respectfully with others.

On a side note, I took a typing test a couple of weeks ago and found out that I type 70 wpm with 95% accuracy. I credit all of these abilities to my job at Verio. How refreshing it is to say something nice about work...

Tonight at my apartment we had a poetry reading (yes - we are cool). I thought I would share one of my favorite poems with you. This poem is titled "The Birds Do Thus" by Robert Frost (although an overly used poet, this poem is in fact, not overused so I thus maintain some sort of originality. I hope).

The Birds Do Thus

I slept all day,
The birds do thus
That sing a while
At eve for us.

To have you soon
I gave away-
Well satisfied
To give - a day.

Life's not so short
I care to keep
The unhappy days:
I choose to sleep.

Anyway, this is a pretty romantic poem to me on many levels... And this is where I leave you for the night. Have a great day and hugs and kisses to all of you reading my blog.

October was a pretty fun month. Here is some stuff that went on ...

This is a picture that I took of myself in a car one day on the way to FHE. I had fun playing with the colors and lighting :)

Halloween with the roommates. If you are wondering, I am a cowgirl... Anyway, we all look pretty awful in this picture, but I really like the colors so I put it on here anyway.

Me and my friend Kelsy at DDVM IV (in other words, his birthday party...)

Every fall, me and my friends from high school get together to eat fondue and hang out at Tiffany's. It's fun stuff! From left to right is Tiffany and her new baby Jayden, Jessica, me, and Stephi. We are missing Amy due to her being on a mission in Taiwan.
