The spring semester is finally over. I spent many nights in the lab coloring, working on the computer, coloring, printing, pounding the keyboard of the computer cause my project wouldn't print, more coloring, and so on. One saturday afternoon I went in around 11:30 in the after noon and didn't get home till 6:00 the following morning. Needless to say i haven't had much sleep lately but now that the semester is over i plan on frequent naps to get caught up before my final semester here at BYU-Idaho.

I'm not a die-hard American Idol fan. But I will admit (and I think a lot of people would agree with me) that it is extremely entertaining to watch some of the hopeful singers audition for American Idol. As we watch I think we all wonder, "Why hasn't somebody told them they sound like nails on a chalkboard when they sing?" or "Why didn't somebody stop them before they left the house wearing that patent leather jumpsuit and dyed green hair?" or more simply "Do they really think they sing well enough to be the next American Idol?" I know at least one of those thoughts has crossed our minds as we watch singer after singer embarrass themselves on national television in hopes of being launched into world wide fame for there singing ability. And like I said for some reason it is extremely entertaining.
Who could forget William Hung?! "SHE BANG, SHE BANG!" The sad thing is, that his awful performance actually brought him fame and fortune. Maybe not quite as much as any winner of American Idol, but he has starred in movies, appeared on episodes of MTV's celebrity death match, was offered a record deal for 25,000$, released 3 CD's, and even better featured in a documentary titled Hangin' with Hung. Not to bad for your average 15 minutes of fame.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July this year. I was lucky enough to have thursday and friday off from school this week and do a little playing. I probably should have spent the time doing homework since there is only two weeks left in this semester and many projects are currently left unfinished. Instead, my buddy Derek came up from Provo and we spent all day Thursday at Yellowstone. It rained off and on but was still well worth the trip. I forget how amazing Yellowstone is. Here are a few pictures from the trip.
