The Joys of Summer

So today at 10 AM just when I was convincing myself to get out of bed, my friend Brianne called me and asked if I wanted to go wake boarding with a bunch of random people. After a short internal struggle I decided to go cause I've been complaining about not hanging out with single people while in Utah Valley. It was fun. We went on Utah Lake and while it was really murky, it wasn't nasty like I remember it being when I was 16 so that was nice. I of course put tons of sunscreen on and kept myself covered for the most part but I still got burned pretty badly. Granted, I could have done a better job of keeping myself covered up, but apparently I haven't completely learned my lesson quite yet.

I turned in my resignation form the other day at work and I'm totally sad about it. I'm super excited to move back up to Logan, but this is probably the best job I have ever had. I'm really going to miss the people I work with. My last day is August 20th and I'm hoping to have everything packed up by then so I can just take off that night after work for Logan. Like I said, I'm totally stoked to get back up there.

I'm just excited for August to be here in general. Exciting things happening in August (in chronological order): my worthless online class will be over, my friend Alesha who was released from her mission on July 18th will be back in Utah, one of my best friends John is coming home from his mission (August 6!!), my family is staying at our neighbor's cabin in Sundance for the weekend (apparently this cabin is bigger than our house), this awesome band called Delta Spirit that I recently discovered is playing at the Gallivan Center, my niece Tamsine is being blessed, and I'm moving back up to Logan. August is going to be an awsome month.

Well, I'm getting tired. I have a hankering for Flight of the Conchords as I fall asleep... I'm still in love with those two.

Summer Update

My mom told me that I needed to update my blog and I told her that I have nothing to update it with. But I guess that's not entirely true...

First of all - I'm an aunt! My sister-in-law Leith had her baby June 15th. Best Father's Day gift ever to my big brother, Mack. Tamsine Jane Christensen is the cutest little baby ever... She was 7 lbs and 19 1/2 inches when she was born but already she has grown so much. She also clicked the other day from what I hear.

Another blog worthy update - I saw The Dark Knight yesterday and holy crap. It was amazing. It left me speechless and during the movie I was even chewing my fingernails at some parts. Very intense, very dark, and I LOVED Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker. Fantastically done. I also really liked Aaron Eckhart in that film. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that Two-Face will be in the third one but I'm not holding my breath.
So yeah - other than that my summer is full of work (which I am loving by the way), doing homework for a worthless online class that I need to take for my minor, and watching movies. Therefore, I hope you'll understand my not writing very often this summer. There's just not much to write about.
