Here a group of us are, getting a picture of a Bible scene. Can you tell which scene it is?
Hint: It involves feeding 5000 people.
I just think this picture is funny. I find it interesting that I can slightly pull off Zach Galifinakis's style. (Picture with a famous person.)
And here we have my top favorite picture. We had to recreate a movie scene. This is Titanic. You can see the nice water under the bow of the ship. And up top you see Jack holding Rose.
While taking this picture, I told my Rose, "I've got you," to which he responded, "Never let go."
Pretty funny for a freshman male. :)
(All the freshmen I've met are just wonderful! Have I mentioned that?)

Our team won, 4 to 0 (I think)! The most exciting times were when we were scoring. So...4 times were exciting.

He took me to different places to pay deposits for water and electricity. Upon arriving at the water place, my brother sees that there are donuts sitting on an empty counter. So, of course, he mentions it to the lady behind a desk, and she, of course, offers him a donut. It may not sound like a fantastic story to you, but to us, it was awesome.
As much as I'll miss my friends and family from back home, I love being back in my college town!

Every night at camp, a group of counselors serve dinner to the 11-14 year olds. One night when I was helping, we decided to sing songs that we all knew to them.
Song #1: Tearin' Up My Heart - NSYNC
Song #2: Everybody - Backstreet Boys
Song #3: Don't Wanna Miss A Thing - Aerosmith
Song #4: Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
Now, maybe it is just me, but these songs are kind of really popular! NSYNC and BSB had it pretty big in the 90's-00's. And the other two songs get played all the time on radio stations and Glee!
Well, not a single kid knew the songs we were singing. We got quite a few odd looks and we didn't know why until we realized that those songs had come out the years that the kids were born!
Taboo is a fun game where you basically play charades, but with words, no movement. On a game night, I was in charge of the Taboo table. In the first round, a few of the words the kids pulled out were "Garfield," "Arnold Shwarzenegger," and "Shaquille O'Neal." And all of these words...they did not know.
I remember when the first kid pulled out Shaquille O'Neal and looked up at me with big blue eyes asking who it was. I just stared back at him. "Seriously? The 7 foot basketball player? Really?"
"No ma'am I don't know what a Shaquille is."
I suppose that the older I get the more out of it I will be with my pop culture knowledge. I just didn't expect it to start this early!!
