This is what I LOVE:
This is what I MISS:
And this is what I am EXCITED for:
First of all rain has been plentiful the last few days here in Rexburg and it's been fantastic! My reaction to the rain is always happiness and joy.
I was walking out of the Ricks building yesterday and heard a conversation that went a little something like this:
teacher: "It's raining cats and dogs outside!"
student: "I know it's like we live in Seattle or something."
teacher and student: "Oh hahahah!!!"
Truth is, it was sprinkling. Oh Seattle how you rain.
Second, I miss recycling. Rexburg does not have this luxury, therefore the garbage in my apartment is taken out 24 times a day, instead of 0. I would say 3 times a week is sufficient, but not without recycling. Let me paint you a picture. Today I came home from classes, walked in the kitchen for some lunch, looked into the trash can to find this:
I would say that 88% of the time our garbage is overflowing with an empty jug of milk, a box of empty pop-tarts, an empty pizza box, 4 other kinds of empty cardboard boxes, and today someone had the audacity to try to stuff the card board and plastic from what used to hold 36 water bottles.... no, it did not all fit.
Thirdly, Two more weeks until Thanksgiving!!!!!! WOO HOO!!! Eight days of bliss in beautiful Bothell and hopefully a few in Seattle!
