Zak Made a Blog

I've had the thought for a while to make a blog. I think periodically I'll make a post with a thought about life or happiness or the gospel or Brandon Sanderson. I think writing things out helps solidify thoughts and sometimes it's fun to share. Also this will validate using all the hot water taking long showers because I'll tell myself I'll put all those thoughts onto the blog. Also I found writing this first post on Blogger about a 1.5/10 on the user-friendly scale so maybe if I keep this up I'll move to a better platform

We drove to the pantages theater in hollywood. Put our names in a lottery. There were about 100 people  wanting to win. Each winner gets 2 tickets. There were  6 of us.  They would  call 13 names. After about 6 names they called: KERRY COLE!! I screamed with delight. Dad got his 2 tickets. We had decided we would give our tickets  to Christopher and katie if their names were not called. The calling of names got over. We gave our tickets to C & K. They reluctantly took them. As we were talking, a girl came up and asked if we would like to buy their tickets for the regular lottery price! Yes we would!  Then we were able to buy 2 more for $50 each. So exciting! Now we are waiting to see the show! Yea!

I'm a Saver!

Who else could possibly have the ability to keep a jar of mustard  for so long?

I've had my mustard longer than Steven has had his!

Ultimate Schedule

This is my currently set schedule for next semester. Notice no classes before 12:30 and the 3 day weekend every week. Believe it or not this was totally unintentional, I just signed up for my classes and tried to avoid mornings and this is what I ended up with. I really think this is what i'll end up doing too. It'll be a bit different, surely have pros and cons, but I think it'll be great. By the way, has anyone taken Personal Finance (Fin200)? I don't think it's required for anything, just a practical class basically about how to use your money wisely, a full 3 credits. Both my roommates have taken it and highly recommended.
That is all.
And now I will leave you to marvel and to wallow in your own jealousy,

Acupuncture and Cupping

18 needles then some cupping. They use suction to make cups stay on the skin. After a couple of mins they remove the cup.  Prick the skin several times then re-apply the suction cup. Old blood comes out. All fascinating.  Kylie handled it well! We come back again on Tuesday.  This morning kylie's swelling was down. Hopeful for Sunday morning.

Kylie gets Acupuncture!

Intetesting experience!  No pain once the needles were in. A little discomfort with some of the needle insertions. We come back again Saturday afternoon!

How Kylie and I spent our morning

Luke called this morning and wanted to play with Griffin.
While Griffin was getting ready, Kylie and I went out to play 30 minutes of tennis.
10:20 -10:50
It was fun!
We did bead up (read sweat) a bit.
On our drive back home, we called Griffin and he came out to the car so we could take him to LUKE'S!
Every time we go there, I always see the sign: Mt. Wilson this way.
I am always curious about that road.
After we dropped off Griffin (Luke was waiting in the front yard), I asked Kylie if she would like to explore the direction of that sign....
She said yes!!  Yea!
19 miles up to Mt. Wilson. I really had no idea what we would find.

There is an observatory up there. 
There are a few trails.
ONE trail will take you 8.6 miles down to Sierra Madre!
It was a beautiful and fun ADVENTURE!!
Sorry to all those that missed out.
