Good Friday

I looked up the words good and friday in the dictionary and this is what it said:
good - adj :
1. satisfactory in quality, quantity, or degree
2. healthful; beneficial
3. cheerful; optimistic; amiable
4. free of distress or pain
friday -noun
1. the sixth day of the week, following Thursday
2. the day that concludes the strenuous work week and reels in "playtime" with friends

My recent discovery of Provo Trail and Utah Lake with my roommates has caused me to share the loveliness with my other friends. This Friday we had a mini Fugal Hall reunion and we took our bikes and went down to Utah Lake and then had a picnic. We also took the liberty to dub ourselves the groovy name "Sisterhood of the Traveling Bikes". Anyway, multiple trips on bikes shall commence as the year progresses. Bike rides = freedom and bike rides with friends = happiness. What a good friday :)

Gotta love that jazz

Jazz does not belong to one race or culture, but is a gift that America has given the world.

bike gang

This spring semester has been spent increasing my utility :) The graph of a utility function in my economics book is usually depicting a sloping curve to signify diminishing marginal return with the increase in happiness. Such is not the case with my springtime here in Provo. I've recently converted to the bliss of hiking and have also formed my own bike gang called C.A.M. My utility has been off the charts! :)
Each time I go out on a hike there's a rush of adrenaline for being outdoors, climbing over rocks, and encountering snakes. A bike ride with the C.A.M. gang entails roaming all over Provo and visiting various places like the park, Juice N' Java, Velour, the French bakery and Josie's Casa. Being a gang member is conditional though. If you want to join our gang you must be able to ride a bike with no hands, you must own a shoulder bag, you must own a bandana (the color is up to you), and you must own a "wind blown" white shirt (although some time is given to acquire such a necessary item for your cycling look).
