Fwends at Karry Park

A couple weeks ago, Tabitha (burtha), Kristi (Clark) and I (Chinesiest Camsies) went up to Karry Park to enjoy the lovely twilight scenery of the city.

Burtha was a bit confused on the whole ordeal

I love lovely evenings with my ladies.

A trip to gain perspective

Last weekend I had this overwhelming feeling that I needed to get out of Seattle for a couple days. I had so much on my mind, and I knew that if I didn't escape I would go crazy.
So I called up a couple friends in Portland, bought a train ticket, and headed south!
Walking on the beach always clears my mind and helps me put my life in perspective.
I have to say thanks to my two buddies who came with me to Lincoln City. They offered some fantastic advice, and left me alone when I needed space.

One of my favorite things to do - ever - is hike to Drift Creek Falls in Oregon. I have done it for the past couple years, and it is beautiful.
The trail was very muddy, and the earth felt wonderful squishing between my toes...
My favorite gomers, Garret and Ben
Garret only tried to kill me once while I was making him an amazing sandwich, so that was a pleasant surprise.

"Hey Cammers, let's pretend this is our new house"
Oh yes, Geet. I have always wanted to live in a yurt!
The brothers sat there for hours. So cute.

I miss the ocean.
I am so happy there.

Oh wait, I'm so happy everywhere :)

The best 'rents

I have some 'rents and they happen to be the best
These two models were awesome enough to drive clear the heck up to nowheresville Seattle to visit their "interesting daughter"
This is us eating Beechers cheese stuff at Pikes Place Market. INCREDIBLE FOOOOOD!!
I also drug them out to Edmonds to see the super low tide and play in the mud. We found sea creatures.

Then we went up the spaceneedle! Yay!
Aaaand it was Babo's birthday :) We had so much fun, (maybe I'm speaking for myself there), and I'm SO HAPPY they came to see me! They still don't understand why I live here - that's ok - but it means a lot that they made the trip up.
Love you guys :)

A dedication

I dedicate this movie to the pants that are about to get peed in, caused by laughter by anyone who watches the movie.
Good luck.

I can't help but notice I'm at bit at war with myself

I just realized that I contradict myself on a daily basis. It comes as a result of me having way to many things to do. I wish so badly that I had more hours in my day so I could do all the things that I absolutely HAVE TO do every day, such as work on laundry and other stuff around the house, fill out and do all the crazy requirements for scholarship applications, (deadlines are killah), apply for jobs, jump through the way-too-tall-for-my-short-leg hoops that are required for applying for jobs, go to work at commerce for reasons I don't quite understand, study for the ACT, and above all, study my scriptures. Because of the time difference between Seattle and Virginia, I have to call my advisor at 7am if I have any random questions. (I am never at a shortage of those. I'm sure she just loves me).
Then I realize that all of this, (with the exception of doing my laundry), is so I will be prepared for school in August. I don't even hardly work at commerce anymore, I just use my big desk and nice computer here so I can focus more on all these crazy applications!
The contradiction is that I catch myself complaining (in my head) about all the stuff I need to get done, then I wish I had more time so I could do more of these things that drive me nuts. Why would I want more hours to be stressed out about getting things done?! What am I thinking!?

Is it this hard for everyone to go to college?

I think I'll go to the Oregon Coast this weekend. It always helps put things in perspective.

thoughts please!

I'm trying to decide if I should stay with my internship or not. It started out awesome, and was for a few months, but they finally hired a real assistant so I am now just doing random projects and researching for Commerce. I also make a lot of copies and spreadsheets. Blech. If I was only here for experience and learning, and I have maxed that out, should I be done? Is it lame to just quit? Thoughts please!
