because summer makes people happy.

all i have to say is that sublime knew what they were talking about when they said,
summertime and the livin's easy.

bbqs. u2. hiking zions. friends. family. fat kids favorite--sugar factory. sunshine. summer of dreams 2011. oh, good news minute: liddles is coming up to provs for a visit and some efy. i love my little bro.

facebook-like-button thumbs up for family time.

and good news minute number two: less than two weeks until i am reunited with one of provo and texas' finest. to whom i am referring? please see the glamour shot below. i am counting down the minutes until i can make sprinkled donut runs to sunshine donuts at 4 am with nik. aka new york nik. aka little meat. aka meat. what does nom mean? i felt it was only appropriate to include this model shot. what doing?

and ps, i know i'm about 4 years late on this one, but friday night lights? tim riggins? yeah. if you have yet to experience this incredible tv series i suggest you do it right now. i get the chills every episode. it's on netflix instant play. i've just been FNLing it for pretty much every night this past week and it's absolutely incredible. clear eyes, full hearts...can't loose.

because being a plastic surgeon's assistant is pretty sweet.

about a month ago a summer of dreams 2011 miracle occurred: i got a job. i'll be honest, going from working zero hours a week, and only having to worry about if the sun was going to shine that day for a good tan, to all of the sudden cranking a forty-two hour work week, was pretty tough. working felt good though. and it still feels good. i love that i am helping people. i love that i get paid to do good things. i love that medicine is so gratifying. dr. jensen, the surgeon who i assist is pretty amazing. he came from the mayo clinic in rochester, minnesota. the mayo clinic is like the mother of all clinics. it's pretty big time, and so is dr. jensen. i am so blessed to be working with such phenomenal gifted and talented individuals.

even though my work weeks can be a little out of control, and sometimes i don't like that i only get 5 hours of sleep each night because i am trying to live my college lifestyle AND my full-time-job-career-real-life-lifestyle, and even though the dodgers haven't won a world series since 1988, and even though the weather in utah is not 80 degrees and sunny with an ocean breeze, and even though i eat white chocolate macadamia nut cliff bars everyday and don't even care, life is good. life is real good. and for that i am grateful.
