Las Vegas

This week a lot of my classes were cancelled for "The Festival of Excellence" and other various reasons, so instead of being an overachiever I went to Las Vegas for a few days. I was happy to get out of the snow in Cedar! While I was there it was jam packed with fun stuff and by the end I was feeling very tired and very sick. I think all the immunizations are finally catching up to me and I'm exhausted.

On Wednesday when I got into town, Sof and I did a little shopping and then went to the Tegan and Sara concert with her friend Lucy. It was really nice and I love that I remember it this time. I have seen them twice before but I've never been sober for a Teg and Sar concert...they rock! It was outside and the weather was perfect.

On Thursday I woke up early and went shopping and got some things for Nepal. Mostly clothes and stuff since I can't wear the clothes I actually own/like. I found some things I really like and that I'll wear even outside of Nepal. Yay. That night, Sof's step dad had a BBQ and some of her friends came over. It was nice to get to know them a little more. We ate outside and it was beautiful. I think this is my favorite time of year in Vegas right now- it's perfect!

Friday I woke up and did a little more shopping and then we went to the gardens at the Bellagio (I think) and hung out. Then we went out to her dads house in Red Rock - well somewhere near there and had dinner. It was so good and her dad and step mom are so nice. Her dad is an artist and I got to see his work- which was really awesome.

By Friday night I was feeling like I was going to die- Sneezing my brains out and headache from hell but we went downtown for a little gambling. That didn't last long and we went home to go to bed. When we got home it was still pretty early so we went swimming and then crashed.

I got home today in time to sleep before work for a bit and now I feel full blown sick. I hope it's just all the immunizations that I've had over the last few weeks and that it doesn't last long because I have lots of stuff to do for school! I can't wait to go back to Las Vegas.


  1. Woof on those immunizations. I wish I could pronounce the word immunizations.

  2. Jill, I remember hanging out with you before that Tegan and Sara concert at Thanksgiving Point!

  3. HA ha you do?! I don't remember anything from that concert, sadly.

  4. Yeah! It was you and Trent and another girl. I have no idea how we met up with you, but my sister and I stood in the line with you for a really long time because the concert was wayyy delayed. I was happy to see a familiar face there, though I will admit, I think you were pretty out of it. Don't worry though, the concert wasn't that great... (Mostly I was just mad because they delayed it for so long that the cancelled the opening band - Rogue Wave - which I was kind of excited to see!)
