Christmas Holidays!

I love Christmas and I'm so sad that the holidays are coming to a close! I've had so much fun this Christmas so far. I've visited my friends in Drumheller, gone home to Cardston for Christmas, went to Vegas for a couple days (details and pictures later once I have a cord to upload all my pictures) and now I'm in Utah at Erin and Darrin's with my family! I kind of feel like a jerk for being so concerned with what my friends are doing and not paying as much attention as I could to my family who I only get to see a few times a year. I'm hoping to pack in all the family time I can now, especially since there's only a few more days until we head back to cold, cold Canada (but to make all you Canadians feel any better, it's pretty dang freezing here too. Vegas was warm, though!). Tonight for New Years, I'll be going to the house of my aunt and uncle, Wilf and Laura, who live not in Utah as well. I'm excited to bring in the new year and see what kind of exciting things will happen this year! So much has happened, and I'm sure so much more will happen as well.

So if I haven't told you before, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My First Race!

So a while ago, my roommate, Anne, decided to sign us all up for a 5k race. She wanted to get a big group of us to go because it was cheaper for a larger group, and being students, we aim for anything cheap.We signed up for the Salvation Army Santa Shuffle which was to take place on December 5th. So the day finally arrived! Unfortunately, the day before the race, a huge blizzard blew into Calgary and made road conditions extremely crappy. As Anne and her sister were heading to the race, their car got stuck and they weren't able to make it. Luckily for Tamara, Catherine and I, we only got stuck a few times and were able to power through in her Buick. Jenna and her sister showed up in a different vehicle.

We started at around 10:20. We were supposed to start at 10:00am but, as you know, weather conditions were bad and we ended up being a little late. However, we kept on going, I ran ahead to see how well I could do and it ended up that we passed a whole bunch of people (probably because they were walking). But after 5.8km, we all made it to the finish line! I think my time was around 30 minutes (the time clock froze) and Tamara made it about 35 minutes. Jenna and Catherine showed up at around 40 minutes I think. Afterwards, we got free Subway subs and lots of treats. Yay for running!

So I've been watching this new show on TV lately called "Glee". It's in its first season and so far, it's sooo good! It's basically about this Glee club who are forced to get a new Glee instructor after their original one was fired and how it all works out. I love it because they redo a lot of popular songs, both new and old, but they all still sound original. They have a really talented cast as well. My favorite character, I must say though, is Artie the paraplegic. He's just so hilarious! Plus, he used to be in a boy band called NLT (Not Like Them) so he's a super good dancer and singer. It's ironic though because he's confined to a wheelchair and can't do any actual dancing. Oh man!
