Tuesday Night Ride

Hands down, the craziest group ride I have ever participated in. Left T-Bock's around 8:30 for a short gravel adventure to local jam session. Tucked in the woods with around ten people, inside a small wood-fired shed with intentions of nothing but having a great time. Aside from the good music and beers shared, bobsledding down a hill at speeds that would make Clark Griswold jealous provided many entertaining moments--not to mention the ride home.

Tuesdays have officially become my favorite night of the week.

Here are some hilarious video's to make you laugh. College Humor is a website online targeting college kids with hilarious articles and video's. Two guys that work there for the past few years have been having prank wars versus each-other and the ideas these guys come up with are epic. A friend showed me these video's and I have not laughed this hard in a while. Below are the links in order.

Dirty Kanza

May or may not get into this race, so I signed up for the Dirty Kanza last night.

200 miles of gravel goodness in Kansas should be interesting.

Amazing Soup

Only three days back at school and I am already missing the pleasures of being home. Few things make the holidays as special when spent with family, but great food always helps make it memorable as well. The smell of a certain meal can take you back to the very place you ate it and revive many memories of the people you ate it with. Certain dishes like my Mom's delicious holiday bread during December and Amy's pickle roll particularly stand out when thinking about the holidays. When thinking back on my travel experiences, along with the sights seen, my mind always comes back to the meals ate at night with the people I shared the day with are the memories that stand out the most.

This holiday was no different. Aj made some awesome meals, Mom made me two awesome breads that came out fresh at night and were gone by the lunch the next day, and Dad whipped up the best soup I have ever had.

School is fun, but home cooked meals will always be something cherished.

May as well get a few posts submitted on the blog during January term. This past fall I took a pottery course at Luther and I have found an art form that I really enjoy. I am still working on a lot of skills on the wheel and I have learned some hand building techniques that I enjoy as well. It has been a great way to relax and relieve some of the stress created during the rigors of studying.

Here are some of the pieces I completed this past fall and a link of more on my flickr account.
