Gonna be a good day...
Saturday, August 21, 2010
The sun is shining, not too many clouds in the sky and I'm packing to go to the hot springs for an overnight. It'll be a nice little 3 mile hike in with the hot springs right there where you camp! I've never been so I'm really excited! I have no idea what I'm going to bring for food. Is there such a thing as healthy camping? (suggestions VERY welcome) And for the whipped cream to that cherry on top... I actually made it on the river to go floating yesterday! It was just a little 2 1/2 hr float but I made it the whole way! My tummy behaved for once, AND I even got to join the rest of my friends out to dinner afterwards. Shortly after dinner I had to say my good-byes but that was more fun with my friends than I'd be able to have in a long time!
I'm super excited because I finally have orientation at the University of Montana on the 25th, with classes to start immediately after. I've wanted to be a Griz since I was 15 and it was my brother's orientation. Between health and stupid life choices it has been a REALLY long journey to get here to this point. I'm nervous, I'm excited, I'm happy and to be totally honest I'm TERRIFIED! I've started second guessing myself if I can handle this. This will be the 3rd time restarting college due to health, and this time I have to start from scratch. Even though the dropping out and taking time off was due to health I can't help but look at it as failure instead. To meet UM's requirements for me to be admitted I have to take a certain amount of credits in a strict time frame with at least a 2.0 to continue. My health still isn't under control at all. I'm pretty much at the point where I have to say to myself "Well, this is my life. I can either curl up in the fetal position and cry like a baby OR I can learn to just deal with it and function anyways." Guess which one I'm going with?!?!?
Darn I ran outta time, sorry folks I'll finish this blog tomorrow when I get home. I gotta finish packing and get on the road in a little over an hour and still gotta eat breakfast too. If you do have any suggestions for good food to bring with for tonight, only a fire will be available no stoves, I WILL be checking back before taking off. THANKS!
