Weekend Update

Hey guys! It's been kind of a crazy weekend. Here's what's up.

Thursday marks the day that the greatest basketball player to ever play for BYU, Jimmer Fredette, played the last game of his college career. In a heartbreaking overtime loss to Florida, we all said goodbye to the most exciting player to step on a court this year. It wasn't his finest game, but that of course won't make us forget what a magical season this has been. A regular season championship, a run to the MWC finals, the first Sweet 16 appearance in 30 years, the most BYU games ever won, tons of shooting records broken, and an all-time leading scoring stat is what Jimmer can say he contributed to this year. Looking forward to seeing you rock the NBA, Jimmer. And you too, Jax :)

Here's just a small tribute to how epic this season has been:

Epic Jimmer Facebook Thread



 So that's that. I'll be cheering him on in a week when he wins NPOY :)

Friday, BYU had the honor of hearing from the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg! Senator Hatch was sufficiently awkward enough to make the Zuck seem cool, haha. I couldn't help compare him to Jesse Eisenberg's portrayal, of course, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Zuckerberg made sure to state his gratitude for his team and seemed humbled to be speaking in front of such a large audience (the first time he's spoken to a college!) He's also doing a lot of good for the world, stressing the importance of innovation as well as putting a lot of time into his nonprofit organization that focuses on improving education.

Today was the Festival of Colors celebration! It was my first time going and it was SO much fun! Basically it's a big Hindu festival where people throw colored chalk at each other. There was dancing by the Hindu temple and shops and even llamas! I definitely want to go next year.

Also, only at a DI in Provo would you find this gem of a board game:


Yep... I didn't buy it, even though I was tempted to. Oh, Utah. 

Will you reach the sunny celestial kingdom? Or will you be stuck as a telestial star??
P.S. I got my passport today! I'm officially able to travel the world this summer! Woohoo!
