Inauguration to ASUSU

Well, Its official. This past week, All of the new officers for ASUSU were sworn in.

ASUSU stands for the Associated Students of Utah State University. I am now officially the Business Senator. With the inauguration, I got a new office in the student center and a whole lot of responsibilities. I am very excited to continue to serve the students of Utah State. This school has done so much for me! I can't wait to give back!

A Week

Well folks,

This past week has been A week. It is a week that is put on by the Student Alumni Association (SAA for short). There were tons of fun activities going on!

Let me tell you about some of them:

Monday we had the Red Bull Chariot Race. One of the roads right next to campus was shut down completely, the road was turned into a race track with hay bails and students raced their home made chariots around the track. It was really fun to watch.

Tuesday SAA showed Back to the Future" on the jumbo tron in the spectrum which is the building that we have our basketball games.

Wednesday there was a bike mob which rode around campus.

Thursday was the Inaugural Miss USU. Much like the Mr. USU that I competed in at the beginning of the school year. The Theme was Hollywood It was so fun to watch all of my friends compete for the title of Miss USU with their talents.
Since the theme was Hollywood, we had some celebrity visitors...

Last, but definitely not least, was Friday with Day on the Quad. The A day Dance, and TRUE AGGIE NIGHT! Friday was basically a combination of all of my favorite events!

I can't believe that another A week has come and gone. The next week is dead week (a week with no exams) and then its finals week! DANG IT! TIME FLIES!!!

Hiking the Wind Caves

My little brother and sister are in High school still. This week was their Spring Break, so my family came to visit me. We decided to take a trip up Logan canyon to explore!

Lucky for us, by not even going 20 minutes up the canyon you pass several parks, several rock climbing walls, and several hiking trails! We decided to hike up to the wind caves. 

Let me tell you what... the wind caves are SAWEET! It is always an adventure up there. It's about a 2 mile hike with a pretty steep incline, but once you get to the top, the cave is huge and really fun to climb around.

Here are a few pictures from the adventure.

Let me tell you what! Spring Break always comes at the perfect time every year! Just when everything is wearing down on you, and school is driving you crazy you get one week to take a step back, chill out, and enjoy a life of no responsibilities. Vacations are the only thing that keep me sane.

Hiking in Hawaii!
The view from Sunset Beach 

Talk about some shaved ice!
This year, a few of my friends and I took a trip to HAWAII! We are awesome food like shaved ice and little shrimpies, and we did all sorts of crazy things like Hiking, beach bumming, and swimming with SHARKS! I'm not even kidding, we dipped ourselves down into a cage surrounded by 12 hungry sharks! It was CRAZY!

On our way back from Hawaii, we stopped for a few days in Vegas. Me and my buddy got hooked up with tickets to Recycled Percussion on the Vegas Strip. Let me tell you what... their show is AWESOME! I've never met such an energetic group of guys ready to put on such a sweet show. 
Recycled Percussion opening their show... BOOM BABY!

And now, we are back in school... and its not half bad!

Winning the Election

Last week I talked about the campaign that I was running for elections week. I was running for a position on the Associated Students of USU (ASUSU). I was running for a position called  Business Senator... and  I WON!

And that's my week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, I was outside on campus all day long talking to my fellow students about my goals for office. I handed out business cards and had many friends helping me by wearing buttons and ties to advertise.

I used this video in my election to portray my passion and vision for the School of Business.

Me and a few of my friends who also won their elections after our first meeting!
Thursday night they announced the winners. Tons of my friends also won their elections. I can't wait to begin work with all of them. Our training starts immediately and pretty soon we will be working in our offices. It is going to be so much fun!

Elections week Is here! I hope the preparation pays off!

This week is going to be crazy! It is elections week for ASUSU (Associated Students of USU) and I am running for Business Senator. There is so much work that has to go into a campaign. This past week, I have been sending emails, posting on Facebook and twitter, painting ties, building giant A Frame's out of plywood, and painting banners to hang on buildings. All this while still attending class, working, and staying on top of my classes. The life of a student is a busy one!

Here are some pictures of what I've been working on.

These are my A Frames before they were put together. Lookin' pretty good right?

These are the banners that I will be hanging on buildings

I made about 100 of these suckers. I am going to hand them out to my campaign members  to wear throughout the week.

Weekends are Life Savers

I am pretty sure that the only thing that keeps me sane at times is the weekend! This week was stressful. I guess all of my classes are on the same testing schedule because I had four exams this week; Business Ethics, Operations Management, Natural Disasters and International Economics. By the time I finished my last exam I was done. Fortunately it was time for the weekend.
Look how many people can fit in a living room.
Sometimes the weekend is just a nice time to relax. Thats what I was planning on doing until I got a call from a friend inviting me to a Valentines day party that our neighbor was throwing. I'm glad I went because it was a blast. There was dancing, decorations and great food.  I just sat in the back and stuffed my face with cake balls. They were so good!
Now it is Sunday night and almost time for a new week to begin. BRING. IT. ON!
