I don't have the energy to post much tonight.

But, for the record, I am pretty sure I am as drama as it gets. I can't be decisive for anything right now. Warning, I reserve the right to change my mind at the drop of a hat at all times.

Some days I HATE HATE HATE being a girl. Seriously.

Allergy testing is a joke. A big fat freaking joke.

I'm kinda not in the greatest of moods today. Please disregard this post. I will try to be stable again starting tomorrow.

Oh, I don't think I talked about how last week I feel out of bed. Yep, I'm 28 and I fell out of bed. And I have a huge bruise to prove it. I have a nasty habit of sleeping on the very very edge of the bed, and it finally caught up to me. But it made me laugh really hard. So, I guess it was still worth it.

Biker Chick, Shooter Chic

It was a pretty good weekend. Arizona continues to be full of adventures. I decided before I came that I would take advantage of all the opportunities that come my way. I don't want to have any regrets. I may only be here a year (who knows) and I want to experience as much as I can!

So, on Friday, I threw caution to the wind and went on an all-day bike ride. Don't worry, I'm not suicidal, I wore a helmet and biking jacket. And I looked a-maz-ing. It turns out that riding a bike all day makes for a very tired butt. I need a luxury seat for something like that. Ha! We rode to Prescott and walked around and then went and walked/hiked around a lake. It was pretty fun to explore. Prescott is so charming. It is like a little Mayberry. There are all these cute houses with big porches and very friendly people. So fun.

Then, on Saturday I went shooting. I have been shooting exactly one other time. I am not good at hitting anything, except maybe dirt. But it was still lots of fun. And I only got a little bruised. Which is better than my friend Quinlan can say. She is crazy bruised. Poor girl.

And now for a picture dump. There are lots.

This was one of the gorgeous views on our bike ride. The layers of mountains are so pretty.

The ripples in the lake that were so cool. And proof that I know enough about photography to capture ripples with detail.

At the lake.

It is amazing that you can get such forest-y areas so close to the desert I live in.

There were signs everywhere that said no swimming, but then this path goes straight into the lake. I don't understand why they would tempt me like that.

Isn't it pretty.

A view from the road.

My view for most of the day.

Proof that I am taking pictures (and texting) while riding. Turns out you don't need to hold on.

I look so amazing. I know.

Taken while driving.

The sunset was gorgeous.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Quinlan shooting. And yes, he is wearing a gas mask in the background.

Me shooting.

And for the dating update. I continue to be a dating spaz. But I am moving forward. New opportunities on the horizon for me. :)
