At the old ball game

It has been a pretty crazy couple of weeks -- I graduated yesterday, and most everything up until now was gearing up for it. But now that it's done, I'm just going to try and focus on getting ready for New York University. Yes, I finally decided to go ahead and go there after a lot of research and talking with professors. They encouraged me to think about where I would like to end up teaching, and how the type of school I go to for graduate school could have a lot of weight in helping me obtain a better position. So I'm heading out there at the end of August, and this summer will be for work and rest. It will be the longest break I've had since before my mission, and I'm looking forward to catching up on a lot of books (and dating...can't forget about that).

And as for the title of my blog, I went to two BYU baseball games this past week and had a blast. We lost the first game, but the second game was amazing. The Cougars had a two-out, seven run rally in the second inning to give them an early lead. It ended up getting delayed because of rain, but the final score was 12-11, BYU. I'm posting some pictures I took at the game (but not actually of the game itself...). Let me know what you think.




This was during the 7th-inning stretch.

We were trying to think of a caption for this picture...basically, BYU was losing 12-2 in the 9th inning, hence all of the empty seats.

I don't know why Hayley had such a serious face

Sorry Hayley! I was trying to get everyone in, but I ran out of room because of the railing.

I forget what was going on here

One of my favorite pictures of the day. This was during the rain delay, and I just really liked the way the colors pop.

These are awesome! I think the last one of me was during the duck song... or possibly the fight song?? I'm not sure? They all turned out great though! I didn't realize how serious I look during the games! haha
