You've got a 'lil somthin' on your face.

Every year at the Hare Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, they celebrate Holi or, The Festival of Colors. The festival represents the passing of winter into spring. Apparently the colored powder or water is thrown to signify the joy and colors of spring arriving. I almost felt sacrilegious and Hippy-like as I listened to the old Indian man sing praises about mother nature and earth and wind, but I must say, it was pretty entertaining. I almost felt offended when I got there at first when some random guy threw dark blue chalk-powder all over my clean, white t-shirt while he said "Dude, she looks WAY too white" but after the first throw I thought to myself, "Indulge baby!!" We went crazy! At one point some guy counted down from 10 and everyone threw ALL of their chalk at the same time. He said that last year someone said that they could see the colorful cloud 10 miles away! It reminded me of a food fight that consisted of 15,000 people. Even though I couldn't breath afterwards, it was definitely a success. I had a lot of fun :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3OZ2OZjPHs (I found this on youtube if you want to check it out)

AHOY! I Blog! I'm a Blogger!

I finally did it! I'm officially a blogger. As if Facebook didn't take up too much of my time... 
I feel as though most people that blog have babies and houses and more important things to display, so could it be possible that I'm not 100% qualified to be a blogger? Maybe so, but maybe I've got somethin' to say too, right? I guess we'll see. 
A little bit about me: I currently live in Provo, Ut and am going to school at Utah Valley University. I'm mainly just doing generals at the moment, but the ultimate goal is to get into the Dental Hygiene Program. Apparently, they only let in 14 people a year? What's that about? I guess we'll see what happens. There's so many opportunities at my fingertips. Thus, begins Sara's Story!!!
