St. Patrick's Day!

So, I received an order to update my blog (Thanks, Dani). But in all honesty, it was needed. My family usually says they don't know what's going on in my life, so my friends are probably in the dark too. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I've posted the following picture:

This picture is actually from Halloween, where my buddy, Abe Neiderhauser, and I went to the ward party as two trees and a hammock. We did, however, get people that thought we were leprechauns... probably due to the beard I was growing for an upcoming musical (Christmas Carol). It seems interesting, however, that they ignored the hammock that we carried in between each other the whole night and the fact that people were sitting in it from time to time. I guess if people are going to pick a spot to sit, it would have to be in a hammock and in between two leprechauns, right? Go figure. Here's another pic from three years ago (hard to believe).

The girls in Virginia (Liberty Square) invited us over for some green apple soda. After we had a burping contest that I'm pretty sure I dominated. Something you wanna brag about, right?

Anyway, what else is new? Ah... Intramurals. So this week is the start of the intramurals tournaments at BYU. I'll be pretty busy; I'm currently on basketball, co-ed soccer (Ward Team), and inter tube water-polo teams. I think we should do pretty well. I'll have my hands full, that's for sure.

It's hard to believe that I'm finally graduating from college next month. After a couple weeks of midterms, it feels like it shouldn't be that bad, but the Accounting program has always surprised me with how much "fun" things can become real fast.

Meanwhile, I'm just enjoying life. I've started going country dancing in Provo about every other week. I've only dropped one girl so far, and luckily I didn't break her. I'm also trying to learn just about every Nickel Creek song on the guitar that I can. I was pretty stoked when I learned "When You Come Back Down" (probably the best song... EVER) yesterday.

I'm proud to say, I'm reading books that aren't required of me right now. I've got about 50 pages left in President Gordon B. Hinckley's biography... an amazing book. I've got so much respect for him. What a perfect example of doing what's right no matter what. I think my next book will be Rich Dad, Poor Dad. That's been on the list of "To Read" for quite some time now.

Hey Steve-O, star of "Jackass" (he's a "celebrity," and it's a TV show; look it up):

Yeah, your family *doesn't* know what's going on with you. I didn't even know you had a blog until today . . . Dondelinger.
