Some interesting news.

Well its official I start school on monday morning. I am so excited. I will be honest I am very nervous but I think it is going to be a great semester. I feel like I have finally gotten to a point in my life where I have enough confidence to actually allow myself to succeed. My major is undeclared seeking to enter the nursing program. My plan is to get all my pre recs done, get my CNA and then apply for the Nursing program. I either want to apply to the USU and Weber program, or the U of U program, or perhaps I may need to just enter into a technical college program. I would prefer to get a BSN from a university but really I just want to become a damn good pediatric nurse. I am very grateful to all the people who have given me advice on how to pursue this career. I am going to be taking elementary microbiology so that should be neat. That is going to be my hardest coarse. I am going to kill it I just have to make sure that I am studying as much as possible. Also I am taking Nutrition so that will be awesome.

So I have made remarks in the past that smart phones and technology are making people dumber, well today I was a great example. I was on campus and was trying to find my way around. I was getting nervous because there were so many people walking around in blue Utah State shirts I didn't want to ask for help or then a complete stranger might know it was my first day on campus. Well I came to a map, yes thats right a map that did not talk to me and tell me directions. I tried using it to figure out where I wanted to go. Well lets just say I became lost on campus for about 40 minutes. I mean it was no problem I got some good exercise. It was a beautiful day and I got to take it all in. However all I could think the entire time was, "I would have died the first week as a pioneer". So I take my hat of to my burly pioneer ancestors, I am sorry your toughness may have been lost along the way.

Oh Also I just turned 24 years old so that is neat.

And another thing, I think you all should but a Nook. After I bought mine I was a little nervous that I might not have though my purchase all the way through but now I am in love with it. Its amazing, in no way was it a waste.

Well a few new music likes: Tinarwien, Stephen Malkus and the Jinks, Devendra Banharts latest album and We Were Promised Jetpacks. I would recommend all of these and you will not be disapointed.

Well thanks for reading, I love you all. Good night and Good Luck.

I've made it back to cache valley

Well I got back from Florida and Boise. I had such an amazing time. I am so fortunate in my life to have so many incredible people who care about me. It was so good to see so many friends that I have not seen in far too long.

At camp my first week of volunteering was with the oldest campers. What was so awesome is that I was in my same cabin with many of the same boys from last year. Also I got to see a few boys from other weeks that came for that week instead of their regular week. It was so awesome to see how far the boys have come and matured. I played guitar with 2 of the boys at stage day. We played blister in the sun and apparently I looked just like Jack Black out of school of rock.

The next week I got to play with the youngest campers and was in the yellow pride for the first time. We had such amazing boys and had more fun than I ever have before. It was so exhausting but at the end of the week all I could do was look back and smile.

I was so blessed to have Thomas and Chris come with me to my home away from home. I was so proud of both of them. They both got painted up, covered in food, and just played their hearts out. To see two friends that I respect so much try something so knew and do such a good job, it was beautiful.

I do not want to make her feel uncomfortable but the lovely young lady who is the Psych Social position for camp is doing just an amazing job. Those children have been so blessed this summer to have someone who cares so much.

To wrap things up, I saw some of the very best friends and caught up, I made some knew friends who I am blessed to now know. I laughed until I cried, I shed a few tears of sorrow, I gave hundreds of high 5's and received more hugs than I deserve. I went to the beach, I went dancing, I learned about cigars and broke a few pairs of sandals. I shook my rumpus and bushy tail, I caught a mouthful of fake vomit in my throat.

Thank you to all my dear friends and family members, thank you all so much. My life is so wonderful because of you all. Ammon Out
