Wingsuit Jumping!

Hey all,

I know it's been awhile, but things here are...boring. I am still in Cedar City even though I graduated from SUU in December, and I'm still looking for a job. I have substitute taught at the high school a couple times. Since I look about 16 years old, everyone was incredulous that I was actually the substitute. Fortunately, high school boys think I'm cute or something, and in every class it's the males that help me out and even scold their classmates for being disruptive. Ha ha ha. Other than that, I have the best friends in the world, so I do a lot with my roommate Janalee and I'm at Becky's house about every other day for The Office or Sunday Supper and whatnot. We even played Mafia a couple weeks ago! In high school that game was all the rage. I remember at one girls camp we played it for 3 days straight with Old Maid cards because face cards weren't allowed.

Last Thursday I was able to go to the play "The Seagull". My good friend Bryan was in it as Semion Medvedenko the school teacher. I had a really good time, although through the whole play I had that song from the Wedding Singer stuck in my head ("You love her, but she loves him, and he loves somebody else! You just can't win. And so it goes till the day you die. This thing they call love it's gonna make you cry. I've had the blues, the reds and the pinks. One thing for sure: LOVE STINKS! Yeah-yeah!") Tragically that's pretty much how the play goes. It's like the biggest love...polygon ever. But I know quite a few of the people involved in it, and I have to say, you just can't top a guy in a three-piece suit. I was going to go again on Saturday with all of my friends, but I got sick and they ended up having an amazing-fun adventure without me afterward, involving a spur-of-the-moment trip to St. George, In-N-Out, and an appearance of Bryan's previously unknown alternate personality, Willy the Walrus.

So really why I decided to write on here today is because I found an amazing video. I want to do this! Maybe I won't honeymoon to an Irish cottage, but do this instead. But Kelly is horrifically scared of heights, so we'll probably be sticking to the rocky beaches of Ireland. (Or, more likely, no honeymoon at all, what with the jobless state we're in, and the fact that we could be spending our honeymoon moving across the country for Teach For America. Well anyway, enjoy this! It's freaking incredible!

Yeah, Kelly would have a heart attack if you tried that. He nearly did on that ferris wheel in California.
