Here Goes Nothing...

Its been a while since my last blog post! Finally I have a little bit of time and motivation, so here goes nothing!

This past weekend I went to North Dakota to visit my old roommate Jenna and her son Talan.I knew North Dakota would be flat and desolate, but I didn’t know exactly how little is actually there. I left Minneapolis in the morning and after about 3 hours I cross the border into North Dakota, emerging into the land of nothing. Once I passed Fargo, there was literally nothing, no gas stations, no fast food restaurants, nothing. I did see a large statue of a buffalo, however. Another 3 hours later I finally arrive in Bismarck.

It was a great weekend! I got to meet Jenna’s son who is absolutely adorable! He is only a year and 8 months old, but I think he’s destined to be a baseball player. He can actually hold a baseball in one hand and hit it with a bat in his other hand. He is more coordinated than I am! It is always great to re-connect with old friends. I hadn’t seen Jenna in almost 4 years but it was as if we never parted ways. I just wish she didn’t live so far away.

If you’ve been watching the news at all, you’ve probably heard about the devastating flooding that is going on in that area. I was able to see it firsthand. Hopefully the people in the area will be able to catch a break and the water will recede soon.
