Wow, I can't believe it's been one year since I started my blog. I started my blog during my Spring Break last year and I'm still continuing to blog. I'm actually surprised because I thought I would only keep up with it for a few months. It's great to look back to see what I have blogged! This blog is really a great place to say whatever and share with anyone.

On a different note, this Spring Break has been flying by! I've been having a really good time with my family. On Monday I went skiing with Chris. It was soo much fun! I love skiing. I surprisingly didn't fall once. I even went down a diamond (level: hard) hill. It sure was steep, but I made it. On Wednesday I went to NYC with my dad. We went out to lunch and dinner and in between we went to St. Patrick's Cathedral for Ash Wednesday Mass, went to the American Folk Art Museum, and saw Jersey Boys on Broadway. What a day! Mass was so crowded, but it was really neat to have a Mass in there. It was cool to see the thousands of people walking around NYC with ashes on their heads. Jersey Boys was great! Even though I didn't know any of the songs (well I knew one, but that's it) the music was entertaining. I have to say though, I enjoyed American Idiot better, but there's no doubt that Jersey Boys was good!

On Tuesday I bought the book "Water for Elephants" and I finished reading it today! I couldn't put it down. I wanted to read it because I knew it was going to be a movie soon. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! Below is the summary for the book from:

"An atmospheric, gritty, and compelling novel of star-crossed lovers, set in the circus world circa 1932, by the bestselling author of Riding Lessons.

When Jacob Jankowski, recently orphaned and suddenly adrift, jumps onto a passing train, he enters a world of freaks, drifters, and misfits, a second-rate circus struggling to survive during the Great Depression, making one-night stands in town after endless town. A veterinary student who almost earned his degree, Jacob is put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It is there that he meets Marlena, the beautiful young star of the equestrian act, who is married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. He also meets Rosie, an elephant who seems untrainable until he discovers a way to reach her.

Beautifully written, Water for Elephants is illuminated by a wonderful sense of time and place. It tells a story of a love between two people that overcomes incredible odds in a world in which even love is a luxury that few can afford."

Here is the trailer for the movie:
