I adore autumn. THe leaves are changing, the air is crisp, the apples are ripe, and it is pumpkin season. All of my favorite holidays are now approaching, namely Halloween, and Thanksgiving, and it is all about school spirit! (go aggies!) but along with the season of autumn comes the season of fall...yes it is a seperate season, that occurs at the same time as autumn. See the season of fall, is a season of falling. My roommate Elise is frequently tripping up the stairs, or falling down them, and on Thursday as I was jumping out of the storage closet I smashed my head into the top of the door frame, and gave my self a concussion...then I was the one tripping everywhere I walked, because I couldn't walk straight. It is the joy of the season I suppose!

My friend Toni and I decided to take a weekend trip and drive the San Francisco. first of all I have never drived past the salt flats and that was an amazing amount of art. We stayed in Reno Friday night, and feared for our lives because it is such a trashy city. Then we drove to SanFran, andhad a great time driving around and around the city. We stayed with Uncle Leonard, and Jeff at their house, and had a wonderful dinner at this nice Chinese resturant, where Jeff taight me how to appropriatly use chopsticks. We went to the Bay area singles branch, and I learned to be grateful for the incredible student ward I have at Utah State. The we had the pleasure of watching the Yankees beat the A's in Oakland. how can a game be bad, that begins with Derek Jeter hitting a home run on the first pitch!?! Then Toni and I made the incredibly long drive home on Monday (ok so it is only 12 hours, but those dang salt flats make it seem like forever.) It was a fun time, but now I am broke...We don't even know how much gas cost total, we didn't want to add it up. The most we paid was $3.23 and we only filled half a tank on that price.
