Greetings and salutations,
Seeing as how this is my first journal back here, I just wish to thank everyone who is here for being here. Tis most appreciated. ^^ And I'm glad to have you all back. I've been missing you all.
Secondly, had a nice experience the other week out in Texas. The outdoor rec. program here sponsors trips during the semesters (roughly 4-5) where a group of students will go do a lot of awesome outdoor activities. (Hiking/backpacking, canoeing, white water rafting, rock climbing, skiing, kayaking, etc.) This semester, I signed up for the Spring Break Multi-Adventure, where we were originally going to go into Arkansas to the Buffalo River, and spend our week up in that area. However, nature had a different opinion. It snowed, iced, and then the river flooded, so the head of the trip backtracked, and relocated to Big Bend National Park outside of Austin, TX. So, we drove there, canoed the Rio Grande for about a day and a half (on which excursion, I got a terrible sun burn on my legs, neck, ears, and hands) then we went to Enchanted Rocks, I believe was the name of the place, to rock climb. It was a lot of fun, even though I got a little sickness halfway into the trip.
We came back, and the group who had gone, minus the head leader and one of the other members, went out to a local bar called On the Rocks. (Just to clarify, I did not drink. I don't like alcoholic beverages, plus I was the designated driver.) It was karaoke night, and they sang a bunch of songs. Through much persuasion, they managed to get me up on stage to sing, and my few minutes on the mic was the best of the whole night (As told me by the DJ and one of the head bartenders). However, at closing time, my friends and I were about to leave, and this random drunk guy comes up to me, for no reason, and punches me twice. A fight did not erupt, thankfully, and I diffused the situation very quickly by simply telling the guy to stop. Needless to say, my friends and I got out of there quickly.
So, a lot of excitement has happened the passed couple of weeks on my end. X3;; Now, I've said a lot, how have you all been?
What have you all been up to, and also, any plans for the upcoming Easter season?
