I had an interesting flight back to Hawaii, I ended up getting stuck in Portland overnight. My flight was an hour late leaving SLC so therefore I was late getting to Portland and missed my connection. There weren't anymore flight going to the islands that day so I had so spend the night in Portland. It ended up being really fun! I met a girl from my school, Sara, that had the same problem, the airlines put us up in a hotel and gave us some money for food. We spent the day together and ended up sharing a room, it was really fun to get to know her and now were good friends. It's fun seeing her around campus and laughing about our night in Portland.
One of the highlights though was this older couple we met. They were on our flight and ended up missing their connection to Maui. They are from Missouri and were headed to Maui to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. They are catholic and the husband was actually a minister. They were the cutest couple and were so happy even though they were losing a day in Maui because of the flight complications. One thing I learned from them is that as long as you have a positive outlook on life and realize that Heavenly Father makes things happen for a reason, nothing will ever dampen your day!!! Because of that and being able to laugh with them it changed my whole perspective. What had been an inconvenience ended up being a really fun adventure!
School has started and I'm taking Economics 201, English 201, Psychology 111, Biology 100 and D&C II. It's going to be another busy semester, especially with softball, but I'm going to enjoy it! We have started up practice again and are getting ready for our first game on February 6th. While I was home I went and saw our doctor and got my back fixed up. I feel so much better!!! I'm throwing agian, hitting and taking infield :D. It feels so good to actually be playing and practicing with my team. I'm really excited for this season and think we are going to do really well.
I hope everybody is doing great! It was so good to see everybody over christmas break, I can't wait to see you again in the summer :D. I Love you all, keep in touch!!!

Here is one of the videos we took while at Breakers. It was really funny when they sang happy birthday to me because all the people in the resturant started singing along and yelling (it's a small resturant). It was so fun and I'm so grateful for the great friends I have here.

It's about a 30-45 minute hike in to where the waterfall is. It's natural water and there are three different levels that you can jump off; the pool at the bottom is really deep. It is one of the prettiest hikes I've been on, I can't wait to go again and actually have time to spend exploring all the different side trails along the hike. I went with two of my best friends Kaitlyn Schooff and Katresha Veazie and her fiance Landon. It was so fun to jump off the falls...even if I did get sick from getting to much water in my head...but besides that it was amazing. The hike wasn't hard at all until we got to the stairs, they're huge!!! but here are some pictures for you to see what it looks like :)
