An Experiment

     You know when people say, "I swear I am the only one who (insert undesirable job here)"? You know like turning off the lights, or picking up their socks. Well, since Katy has been gone all the time/moved out I have felt like I am the only one who takes out the trash. Now, this could just be me being silly and overly annoyed at the tedious and perpetual task of taking out the trash. On the other hand, I could be right. So, to test my theory, I did an experiment.
     I decided to see how many days my roommates could go without taking any bags of garbage to the dumpster in the parking lot. I thought for sure if I just gave them enough time, eventually, someone would realize we had all this garbage and throw it away. This is what happened:

       It takes us about 3-5 days to fill one of these bags, so what we're looking at here is 9-15 days of trash. That could mean 2 WEEKS PEOPLE! And 2 pizza boxes is actually below average for even a week. I know it's a long 45-second walk to the dumpster and putting on shoes and a jacket can be so physically taxing but, come on!
     Needless to say, when the first bag started to smell pretty rank I caved. And yes, I finally took out the trash.
Ah. That's better.

     But, I think it's safe to say, "I am LITERALLY the only one who takes out the trash".

First Snow on a Day in the Life

   So yesterday, BYU planned this fun thing called "A Day in the Life of BYU" where BYU students could take pictures of their day and submit it to be put into a video! I decided it would be fun to participate... but mostly forgot that I had my camera on me and didn't take very many pictures. Whoops. Here are some of the ones I did get though:

It's from the rain I promise:


Stats Class. Professor Collings is the best.
Alex found a dime!
A penny would've made a better contrast but she
was pretty stoked nonetheless.

Katy is getting married next week!
So she move out :( 
This will be a lonely room without her.

This, which turned into...
 this, which turned into...

   That's right folks, the first real snow of the season! I was so happy when the rain turned into snow, it's possible a tear might have escaped my eyes (it didn't, but it would have been possible). I am so happy that the Christmas music Katy and I have been listening to since Halloween finally matches the weather outside. This really is the most wonderful time of the year!
   I didn't take any pictures of the rest of my night, which is a shame because I had the best accounting assignment ever. This is the description:

"Visit your favorite restaurant. While there, take notes 
about the production cost of your favorite meal."

   Afterwards I had to make some estimations about the cost of production but otherwise, I loved it. Katy and Josh went with me to Zupas of course. Then we went to Katy's parents' and watched Parks and Recreation which was enjoyable as usual.
   BUT the fun didn't stop there! Upon arriving home I soon realized that the power was out! We all know that in the first snow of the season some unprepared chap has got to slide into a pole, knocking out the power somewhere. Good thing I love it when the power goes out for a short while. I don't know why, it's just kind of fun and exciting! No need to worry though, the power came back on about 1:30AM. My printer started going berserk and woke me up so I was able to get up and turn off all the lights. 
   Pretty neat day! Glad I documented it!
