Check out what I've been doing at my internship. It took me two-ish days from 2-5 to finish compiling the information from Chris Wilson, my internship provider. Then it was just a matter of sifting through the info to include the most important and re-word it to make more sense and be better for a newsletter. I cut and pasted the section on the building though from a text panel (Chris said that was ok). I'm having fun with it, and I'm looking forward to the new stuff I'll get to do.
Brittany Andersen was our photographer. So fun to work with and super nice and relaxed. We really like our photos and can't wait to choose one to send out with the invites. So pleased with how it all turned out!
So Greg took me downtown Salt Lake to see the lights. It was gorgeous and a super fun date, if not super freezing date too. The temps were very low, but our spirits were super high! Here are some pics of the date and to prove that we did not turn into icicles--although it was certainly cold enough.
Well as some of you may have noticed, the title of the blog has changed. It was once Katherine's Blog and now it is Greg & Katherine's Blog. That's because (drum roll please)
Hahaha! Yep it's true, we are officially engaged and have been since Friday, November 20, 2009! Yeehaw we're excited. I'm glad and happy and more than ecstatic to introduce you all to Greg.
Ta da! Here he is! Pleased to introduce you to Greg. We are so excited and will be updating our blog (hee hee so fun) soon. We'll also probably start a wedding webpage or something of the sort to keep you all updated on the countdown to the big day and so on and such and such! Hooray!
Official count from the last 24 hours: 38 bites!!!!!!!!!!! all red, all burning, all itching, none dying away
Really it's a total bummer. Thankfully there are none on my face or legs. Unfortunately, all are on my arms and feet----very inconvenient to wear shoes that rub on them and also to wear shirts, no matter which one, because they all rub on them too. Oh well, such is the price to pay for basking in the all too quickly fading summer nights. I swear these mosquitoes are getting better at what they do because I didn't feel a thing until it was too late. So basically all the skin that I was showing in the last 24 hours is covered in the vicious reminders of pesky mosquitoes who are determined to survive on the distracted meal tickets.
So since there are so many mosquitoes, why aren't there more dragonflies? Wouldn't it be lovely if there were just a plethora of these beautiful predators for the mosquitoes? I think so. Besides that they really are pretty. Interesting to note is that dragonflies and mosquitoes seem to look similar.....Anywho, I'll just sit here with my itching and pray that all the scratching, slapping, and nail biting will in some way alleviate the constant reminder that I am single-handedly supporting the mosquito population here in Provo.
So I am part of the epidemic. I got the dreaded swine flu. I went to the doctor last week right in the throws of it and they said there wasn't anything to do for it except sleep and drink lots of fluids. I got sick on Tuesday and have been coughing until now, still a residual one. But thankfully, the fever subsided. Even more thankfully, I had two friends brave enough and willing to take me to the Health Center in hopes of a remedy. I didn't know it was the swine flu, and well the doc never really said it either...really. She said that I had the flu and it was most probably the swine flu. But most probably isn't definitely. In any case...Greg and Jesus took me to the Health Center, then took my books back to the library (which was AWESOME since I had about 20 and they were huge), and they also took the note from the doctor to my work. Oh man, they came at just the right time. I'm so grateful to them. Pretty awesome dudes. Anywho, I'm pretty much better now. Just a slight cough still and still pretty tired, but other than that healthy.
