festival of colors! [sans photos] and new resolutions

i ended up going to festival of colors yesterday.  there's a huge krishna temple in spanish fork, and every year they have a color throwing to celebrate holi... a krishna holiday [i think]. i don't much about the holiday, all i know is you dress in all white, get scented/colored chalk, and throw it on people. it was way fun.  i went with boy, his siblings, and a couple of friends from my old ward.  there were some hilarious times- mostly between us and children [yes, seven or under].

sorry i don't have any pictures, yet.  there all on boy's camera.  but there were some good ones. trust me.

last night i went emergency grocery shopping with boy for the things he needs today: cereal, frozen pizza and pringles. [wow. such a guy.] it made me remember how sad it is to not be able to cook.  so, i decided today that i am going to have a sunday dinner, every sunday, where i make something for reals. so far, i have compiled recipes for mediterranean risotto, my aunt's yummy pasta salad, sausage, chard and lemon lasagna, gruyere and parmesan souffle, backed rigatoni with tiny meatballs, quiche lorraine and chicken tortilla soup. sounds delicious right? i also want to bake desserts that i have never tried- pies, cakes, fudge, chocolate dipped cookies.

so here's to a colorful weekend and a delicious future!

best weekend ever!

i ran my half-marathon [13.1 miles!] it only took my 02:13:48.  if i didn't have to go to the bathroom, then it would've only taken 02:10:48.  stupid bladder.  but i felt so good! [today, not so much]
here's jen and i at the finish line.. an hour after our finish.

also, i heard back from my internship!  i got it! you are reading the words of BYU MOA's new contemporary curator's intern.  that's right.

goals accomplished.

growing up

i had my first real interview today.  i had a job in high school, but for that interview, it went something like this:

Jim: Are you a good worker?
Me: yes.
Jim: Jen, can you vouch for her?
Jen: yes.
Jim: Good, you get the job.

easy, yes.

well, my interview today was a little more intense.  there were five interviewers and just little ol' me.  they asked me questions like: what do you hope to get out of this experience?  and what will you bring to the internship? [my least favorite question after "what do you do for fun?")

i'll hear back by mid-week next week.

cross your fingers!

last night boy and i saw the adjustment bureau.  i really liked it.  the costumes were supper classy, like a 40s thriller.  emily blunt is really funny and sassy, and her dancing is quite good.  it wasn't as mind blowing  as inception, but i still liked it.
