Sittin' on a corner in Winslow Arizona

That song has been stuck in my head all day. I was watching the news this morning, and it was giving the weather, and it said what it would be in Winslow, and BAM that song just popped into my head. Which would be okay, except that and the chorus are the only parts I know...

It's about one o'clock in the morning. And I'm wide awake. You may be wondering, isn't that pretty late to be up, considering you have work tomorrow at seven? My answer: yes, it is! But totally worth it!
And now, the explanation. I went on a date! It was really, really fun! I went with Jason, he's in my tues/thurs institute class (World Religions with Brother Wold). He's taller than me (score!), smart, nerdy (which is fantastic), plays the piano, economics major, went on a mission to Washington and is very sad that he doesn't know any foreign languages. He wants to learn Mandarin, and I asked him if he had any idea what he was getting himself into ;-). This is his last semester of college, he's twenty four, works at Chase currently, and doesn't know what he wants to do with his degree. He's really fun! I thoroughly enjoyed tonight. It was a big group thing, there were about fourteen of us, we went out into the desert by some random bat caves, had a bbq and bonfire, one guy brought his guitar and made up a song about two of the people who went and stood by the fire to see who could stand the heat for longer... very amusing song. Anyway, it was a really fun time, met lots of new people, got to know Jason better, and had a blast! First official date of college! Woo hoo!
I'm tired though, so I think I'm going to save all other updates for another time. Thanks for readign!

Nick can tell him all the reasons why he wouldn't want to be learning Mandarin, haha.

Bat caves, huh? Sounds a little creepy :-D

If you want me to, I can sing you the entire song. It's an Eagle's song titled "Take it easy" and I know almost all of the Eagles stuff.

Haha it took me a while to figure out who otm7171 is, but I'm assuming it's Dad, considering it would make sense. One Track Mind, his racing number... if not, weird coincidence! I didn't know you had your own username... interesting.

okay this is pretty crazy, but my first official date at college was last saturday night with a guy named Jason, too! Except for the Jason I went out with is in his 1st semester of college and has yet to serve a mission. I thought it was still worth pointing out.
