Last night I had the great opportunity of going snowboarding with my best friend Hayley and her friends from UVU. At first I was a little weirded out because I came to find they were all RMs, but that made it more fun, I think.
All of the boys were freaking awesome like if they could land half the stuff they did hello amateur competitions. I know I'm a decent rider, but man I could never just go for jumps like do.
I haven't hit any jumps in a really long time. I'm a little freaked out by them since I've taken some spills back in the day.
I'm a really good rider now though so I have no idea what would happen if I even attempted a jump. The world would blow up or something I'm sure. So by not jumping, I'm really saving everyone from an inevitable death. I'm going to try a jump next time I go up. I promise.
Anyways the guys were way cool, and super patient with Hays who is just mastering her carving skills. She got way good at them by the end too. It was SWEET! It hurt her knee a little bit though, which totally sucks. Last year she tore just about every ligment in her knee so she had to wear a brace up boarding, but she did really really well.
I had a great time and got some sweet movie recommendations from Cole(?) who says I need to check out Bright Star, it's a movie about John Keats I guess. I don't know. I'm definitely going to have to look it up.

Ah....I love coming home. I just hate the drive. Yesterday worked out amazingly well...until I hit SLC.
I left Logan at 4:20 and hit SLC at 5:20. That's not bad time really. I had this awesome red pick up truck I followed because I'm too scared to do 85 mph by myself.... And once I hit SLC I saw it......
Needless to say after a couple jerks and a flipping off of one of them. (Well I didn't REALLY flip them off. I just gave them a finger which made it look like I gave them THE finger...) I made it home by 6:45. Which sucks. But I'm home and I can't complain about that!
But I did have a funny thing happen to me yesterday as I was leaving English. My new friend Tyler and his friend Brett(?) and I were walking. We got on the topic of football. Well I am an avid Colts fan and have been for a very long time. I started going on about the Colts and their playbook and how much I hate the Patriots. The look on the boys' faces....PRICELESS.
Ok so maybe I shouldn't unleash my awesomeness on unsuspecting boys, but I couldn't help it! It was just too good of an opportunity and they never saw it coming.
Anyways I had TDeck over to play some Halo with me and Tys, which was freaking fun! I just have to say that I got 15 of our 32 kills on one of the levels which TDeck and Tys both only got 9. WOOT! (I actually did pretty lousy on all the other levels though, so I shouldn't be bragging.)
Anyways, boarding tonight with my buddy Hayley and it should rock hardcore!

Guess what I wrote...again...

There should be some award for me since I'm writing for the second day in a row. Yes, I am awesome.
Today was my late class day so I got to sleep in. I'm not really sure why I stayed up so late last night though. My roommates were watching a movie that I wasn't going to watch so I just kind of chilled my room and watched House on Hulu. Gotta say, that show is amazing.
My roommates decided to cook for the first time ever...(I'm actually being serious, none of us EVER cook). They cooked some amazing cafe rio salads and I don't think I've been that full in a week.
My last class of the day got cancelled..but of course I didn't find that out until I walked up three flights of stairs. That's not an issue though. Plus I got walked to class by my new friend Tyler, who is in my English class. It was great.
Well here's my song of the day:
1000 Suns by 30 Seconds to Mars

Oh yeah - didn't I say I was going to write more often?

Ok so let's just be serious for a minute. I haven't been writing. And I was so sure I was turning over a new leaf. *sigh*
You know what happened? Life happened. College happened. Living with 5 girls is a little crazy. Not that I don't love it. Just that it's different. I've never had sisters, so it's sort of like having them.
I really will try to be better about this whole blog thing. I just watched Julie & Julia and I felt like the whole thing was like this HUGE guilt trip. Write in your blog, write in your blog, over and over and over again.
The blog thing is going to be harder than ever right now. I have an internship where I write a 400 word article and 4 100 word blog posts a day. Kill me. And today I realized while I was attempting to work on my book that I have writers block. Well when it comes to by book anyways. For everything else I can usually pull something out of my butt.
And today as I was trying to force the bathroom door open because so much of Katie's stuff is in the way I was struggling is that I have stuff to write about. And though I love Katie, someone is going to get a kick out of reading about how I could barely fight my way into my own bathroom. I have plenty to write about.
Now I promised free music or good music anyways. Anyone seen 500 Days of Summer? AMAZING. Part of what makes it amazing is the music! My top 3 picks (seriously go look these up!)
1. Us - Regina Spektor
2. Hero - Regina Spektor
3. She's got you high - Mumm-Ra

ID Page

My name is Mikayla Rich and this is my JCOM 2010 ID page.

I'm technically a freshman, but I'm actually a sophomore as far as credits go!

I am an English Teaching Major with a minor in Journalism and Political Science. I kind of do everything.

My school email is and my cell phone number is 801-602-9394.

About me: Well I know you say to not include that I have blonde hair, but I do. I occasionally have purple streaks in it though which make it a little different. I am always on my iPod I love music. By looking at me you would never guess my favorite band, but it's Metallica. I love almost all music including classical but country and rap are where I draw the line. I can't handle the twanging or the crap rhymes. Anyways that's a little about me!
PS The picture is of me and my fish. The big one is Rafiki and the small ones are Mortimer, Lucinda, Fido, Reginald, Ludo, Garfunkle, and the only that lived longer than 3 days...Sputnik (he's still alive and it's been 2 years)
