A Much-needed Weekend

I can honestly say that I worship weekends. I mean, everyone loves the weekend. Duh. But, ever since I got to college, they have literally become my saving grace.  With assignments, exams, projects, and everything else that comes with school, the weekend is your gateway to sanity and freedom. I don't know what I'd do without them!

This weekend was especially good. On Friday, I left for Bear Lake to have a retreat with my fellow coworkers on the A-Team. If you don't know what the A-Team is at USU... we're the ones that run new student orientation during the summer. It's a killer job. Great people to work with, great job, and great times that are had all the time. Anyways, we got to the USU Bear Lake Training Center on Friday afternoon and spent the day and night hanging out and getting to know each other. We also had a dance party. I'm sure our boss appreciated the music into the wee hours of the morning.

The next morning we came home just in time for the basketball game against our rival New Mexico State. ESPN was in the house, and the Spectrum was crazy. Unfortunately, we lost the game... I don't want to talk about it!

That night, USU held one of its massive parties. MARDI GRAS! It was awesome. There was a magician, oxygen bar, dance party, acrobatics, jazz bands, a full casino (fake money, haha), and more! It was awesome. Tons of people showed up and the place was crazy all night long. I ended up filming the event for MyFriends, so that footage should be coming out soon.

Then on Sunday, I was able to drive to Salt Lake City to have dinner for my dad's birthday. It was nice to see my family and relax a bit before school on Monday.

Basically, this weekend saved me. I really needed it. After having tons of things to do for school during the recent weekdays, this weekend kept me from imploding. And imploding would not be good. Is that even possible?

Anyways, enough about imploding. Even though I need to get back to my physics homework.
