festival of colors, dances, and other adventures.

The last two weeks in a list of 11...
1. Festival of Colors!
guess what? yesterday I crowd surfed. true story. granted, it was not by choice, but it still happened. Also, I got to spend the afternoon with all of these wonderful people and it was a blast:

{p.s. I completely stole this picture from Dylan. shout out to him for taking it}
If you have no idea what's going on, here's a video from the Holi fest a couple years ago:

I'm pretty sure that my throat may be permanently coated in colored chalk, but it was definitely worth it. I had heard that the Holi fest wasn't all it was talked up to be. lies. We were only planning to stay for one color throw and a few songs... and three color throws later we finally left! It was an afternoon well spent, that's for sure.

2. Wyld Lyfe [sic] dance {BYU has a lot of dances, in case you haven't noticed} It may have been the best one yet.

you know, just exploring the wild.
3. McDonald's until 3 a.m. it's a college thing.

here, have a shameless selfie with Erik Mika: {he's sitting by the window}

4. Relief Society/Hall pictures

There's a reason these girls are my favorite. plus, living in the same hall as them is perfection.

5. Summary of my past two weeks in a single picture {besides the previous activities, of course...}

introducing my snapchats {symbolizing 99% of my life}, my friends.
6. The worst news ever.

I have less than a month left at BYU. I've had so much fun and I am nowhere-near ready for it to end! Will it be nice to not always have a test to study for or a paper to write? yeah. But as much as I miss Colorado and my parents and summer {and having a job/income} and adventures with Kelsey, I don't want freshmen year to end! Especially since most of the people that have made this year so great are leaving on missions and I won't see them for 1.5/2 years.

Where the heck did this year go??

7. I may never tweet again.

Ryan is in town and so I'm spending the night up at my sister's house {and my mom is in town too!}. We spent part of last evening reading my tweets out loud and critiquing them. There is a very large chance that I will never tweet again, strictly out of the embarrassment that came with this said activity.

8. MHS is on spring break. BYU doesn't have a spring break. Just thought I'd tell you that little sad fact, in case you were wondering {or if you were complaining about your break being too short. cough cough}

9. Dorm pranks are fun, ladies & gentlemen.
{I hope recycling was involved in the clean up process...}

10. March Madness: 3rd place.

I'm sure this doesn't come as a surprise, but I know nothing about basketball. absolutely nothing. When I filled out my ward bracket, I literally just choose the higher seeded team every single time. Then I did eeny meeny miny mo {is that how you spell it?} for the top teams. and I'm in 3rd place. I'm probably not going to win, but I would like to believe that I'll have some great bragging rights considering I can't even tell you a single player on any of the teams besides BYU. let alone where the team is from. or anything about that team. or any of that teams previous games.

11. 80's night round two.

Remember the first 80s night we went to? It was even more fun the second time around! Here... because I don't feel like downloading the picture off my phone, go check out Kayla's blog post about it!

All-in-all, I would say the last few weeks have been some of the best!


p.s. my phone likes to do this cute little thing where I don't get certain texts for a couple weeks. {I was actually really offended that I was mid-conversation and people would quit replying... nope. a couple nights ago, my phone died and when I turned it back on, I got about 10 texts people had sent me weeks ago} and it also won't let me listen to my voicemails.
...if you would like to donate to the "erica's phone is too ghetto" fund, please feel free.
sorry, I'm done complaining.


  1. I love you and this was fabulous :)

  2. I get even more pumped about BYU with every post of yours that I read! Hope we can meet and you can bestow all of your freshmen wisdom to me!

    1. Whoo hoo! I'm so glad! We will most definitely have to meet up next year some time, I'm seriously so excited for you to come here!!

  3. Looks like so much fun!!!

  4. Oh the Festival. So many memories. Looks like you are having loads of fun, cutie. Makes me miss college!

    1. Thank you so much, I am having tons of fun!!
