College Dame

Yep. I'm a college girl now. All slick and serious, no nonsense and ready for knowledge.

Eh. Okay. Maybe not quite :P
But college has been amazing! I have four classes, Psychology, English comp, College Algebra, and Spanish, and all of them are pretty *awesome*
I was pretty nervous beforehand, worrying that I wouldn't fit in, that the homework would be too  much, that I wouldn't find my classes etc...but everything was just fine. The only problem I had all week was trying to find parking. It is a mad house at the campus, by 11:30, every single parking space on the entire campus is full. Students are forced to drive around, asking random students if they are leaving, and if they are, if they could take their parking space. Sheesh. It's ridiculous. But beyond that, the University of West Florida is an AWESOME college. The campus is beautiful, all my professors are really nice and intelligent, and the students are really friendly and normal. I was kind of worried about recieving a bunch of opposition, since it is a secular college, but so far everyone has been really accepting and normal, so I was super happy about that. I feel really lucky to have the oppurtunity to attend college while in highschool...its really an awesome chance to experience college without having to move out and away, you know?
Anyways :)
College is awesome.
Go UWF!!

Freedom Under Wide Open Skies...

This was where I spent the last two weeks.
These were just a few of the people I spent them with.
(BTW: Baldy is a famous ski mountain in Sun Valley, Idaho)
I had such a good time!!
I was mainly excited about seeing my friend Rachel---
Weve been friends ever since we were babies, and our mothers were pregnant together, we were born three days apart. Yep.
Oh yeah. Were so hot.
Basically she and her entire family are like supernatural athletic prodigies, so basically, we spent the whole time doin outdoorsy stuff! Swimming in the pool, biking, hiking up a 9000 ft mountain...oh yeah, totally normal :P It was super fun :)
And the scenery was just...GORGEOUS. No, seriously. I don't I've ever been to a place as beautiful as Sun Valley, Idaho, except for Stanley Idaho, which was just incredible.
It was just amazing!! That day in Stanley was the best ever. We spent a whole day driving through the Sawtooth Mountains and we saw the most gorgeous scenery...I fell in love with the mountains all over again.
But it wasn't just the big stuff, like mountains...
It's the little things too.

Redfish Lake was beautiful too!!

Yeah :) There's alot more pictures but I didn't want to overload you guys.
Needless to say, Idaho is gorgeous and I had a wonderful time:)
More posts coming home!!

Oh, How the West Beckons...

Hey girlies!! My apologies for not posting sooner, but I am out of town once again, only this time in scenic Idaho rather than boiling hot tennessee. I was in
Boise for about a week, bunking with my lovely buddy rachel, and now I'm in gorgeous Sun Valley Idaho, in an adorable little cabin surrounded by tree covered mountains. I have been taking pictures like mad, but cant post them right now because i am writing this post on my itouch...and because I forgot the USB cord for my camera. Brilliant right? Anyways, I'll try to recap as much of the trip as I can, using lovely descriptive language, so you lasses use your imaginations, alright?
The Sunday before last, my family hopped on several planes and flew to salt lake city, then rented a cute little maroon ford fusion and drove about four hours to Boise. Although Idaho is beautiful, I have to confess, I completely fell in love with Utah as we drove through it. The untamed wildness, the rolling hills, the wide open skies...I can totally understand now why the pioneers left the east coast and travelled west. It was so magical and's a place that you have to SEE to experience, no picture can do it justice. We got to Boise and I was reunite with my good friends, Rachel and Alex, and made a new friend in their chocolate lab, cocoa. We spent about four days there, playing copious amounts of Mario kart, the board game clue, and badminton in their back yard. I did attempt to go running with Rachel in the Boise foothills, but soon gave that notion up once I realized rachel's cross country trained legs could leave me in the dust,and that I still wasn't used to the higher altitude and had trouble breathing....oh well!!On the Sunday, we drove up to sun valley, and so far have been enjoying the gorgeous scenery while hiking and biking...and watching my brother and Alex play pool, which is highly entertaining. Sun valley has been relaxing, and I have really enjoyed my two days here. It actually hailed here this morning,something a southerner like me completely wasn't used to...but I'm always open to new experiences :) and now my thumbs are tired from
typing all this on my touch, but I just wanted to let y'all know where I was and what I was up to :) this copious amount of pictures I took will probably be on the blog next be on the lookout for those!! Have a blessed rest of the week!!

All my love, and God's blessings, Ari <3
