ok, i owe all you, my devoted readers, an apology. I have not written for a while, and this won't be much of a post. I survived a strenuous week of finals at BYU. Got my grades back, 2 B's, 2 A-'s, and 2 A's...something like that. Not too good. The night of clean checks, i played ultimate frisbee with some friends, then watched a movie at midnight (Yes Man--I recommend it), then cleaned all night! I didn't get any sleep. Took a nap, slept 2 hours through work. Drove home 2 days later to Washington. I did all 10 hours by my lonesome. It was kind of nice actually! Then, spent a few days at home. We then started our vacation!! We drove to Seattle where we caught a military plane and flew to Japan. After some drama at the airport which involved a baby that they thought had swine flu, we finally were released into the country to fend for ourselves. We didn't do much, just saw Tokyo, after 3 nights in Japan, we flew into Singapore!! It was beautiful, hot and humid. I loved it though. We saw a lot there, and spent a lot of money, and most importantly, took a ton of pictures (i'll be putting them up at a later time). After a nice day at a polluted beach (where I got oil stains on my feet), and a nice sunburn, we flew back to Japan where I currently am. Now, we are going to do the tourist thing for real here. I'll be back in a week or so. Take care!
