New Post!

It seems like most blog post these days start with regrets...regrets of not posting for long periods of time. To solve this problem, I took off the year from the date so none of you will know what year I actually published a post! It only says the day and month. Clever eh? With that said, man it's been forever since I posted!

To catch up, Chelsea and I are graduating this April from BYU! I feel like I am going to walk, even though this video, published by BYU, almost prevented me:

Yeah, scary! Please don't go jump off the SWKT (I myself contemplated this after I watched it) But Chelsea and I have convinced ourselves that we need closure from our long years at the Y. Chelsea has spent the last six years at three different schools, and I think she is more determined than me to BE DONE!

Last semester was pretty stressful because I was trying to find a job. Lucky for me I did! I got a job with a company called Avery Dennison. You probably recognize them best as makers of Avery labels (I prefer the term pressure sensitive adhesives...) but they do a lot more such as manufacture and produce RFID tags and office supplies. We're moving out to Kirtland, Ohio in May and we'll be there for at least a year. I got hired into a Leadership rotational development program, so in a year I could be somewhere else. We are excited!



Chelsea is busy in the schools teaching little first graders. I love hearing her stories she brings home. Little kids crack me up! She'll be doing her student teaching this Spring/Summer in Provo....which, if you get your facts right, means I will be alone in Ohio for a few months...ugh! But we won't get into that!

I will continue to try and be diligent in posting, though no promises! I even updated my blogger list (if you aren't on the list please comment and I'll add you, I may not write a lot, but I love to follow!) Also, here's an updated family photo. We were fortunate enough to get my whole family here for Christmas, which doesn't happen that often. Until next time!

Haha, more power to you for deleting the year. :) And yay! You'll love Ohio. I bet Chelsea is an amazing teacher. If you don't walk, you should at least get a cap and gown to take the obligatory pictures. :)

Riley, congratulations on graduating and employment. It's like you are going to be a grown-up or something. Keep it up. You two should come down here to Vegas for a weekend or something. It is a lot warmer than where you are.

She's staying in PROVO?!! That really sucks. I'm sorry!!

Congratulations on graduating, both you and Chelsea. I can't believe Chelsea has to stay here while you are in Ohio. How sad. We love you guys.

That stinks about another summer apart. But when it's over, it'll really be over, right? And in the meantime, feel free to escape to Brooklyn whenever you need some company. :)

That graduation video is EMBARASSING! I saw them filming when I was leaving work one day at the library and I felt awkward then too.

Riley, good thinking on taking off the year. Congrats on your job! Kirtland is a happening place.
