Up all night last night studying for my last psychology test of the semester, I wake up to find that school has been cancelled due to a SNOW DAY!
A sigh of relief, I looked at this at about 6:15 in the morning, then turned my alarm off for 7 and went back to bed. Best day ever. Although since I had two tests today and a presentation, everything gets moved to Monday. So I won't be looking forward to Monday...but hey more time to study at least.
Since I am trapped in my apartment, that is pretty much all I have to do anyways. I've already watched basically everything there is to watch on netflix - which is seriously the greatest invention ever for procrastination. Honestly, it is so easy to watch a show and then simply click on the next show in the bottom right hand corner once it has finished. Wasting the day watching netflix never felt so easy.
Since I am like a lover of taking pictures of absolutely every moment of my day. I waited till 10 for JP to wake up, and as soon as she walked out of her bedroom I screamed: Let's go take pictures! Thankfully, she understands me, so her immediate response was: give me 10 minutes.
So I am going to post all the photos we took :) I mean, when else do we get to see snow... let us enjoy it!
and last but not least our Roommate Christmas Card Picture <3
and last but not least, my absolute FAVORITE picture I have probably ever taken

fa un freddo cane ; or in english it is freezing! Cold & rain are two things that do not mix well - at least not for me. I am not a fan of the cold weather, and Texas being the most bipolar state when it comes to weather - you never really know what you're going to get when you wake up in the morning. Yesterday was in the 70's and today its basically freezing. It would be nice if it snowed or something rather than just being super cold - because then they might cancel school or something. Texas is known for canceling schools when it snows, because it like never happens. Being a golfer I am prone to liking the Texas summer heat, but the cold weather does mean that Christmas is soon- and that is my favorite holiday. Just means I will soon be sitting by fire, drinking hot chocolate, and watching the 25 days of Christmas on ABC family <3

It's been a couple weeks since we had our last tournament of the Fall down in San Antonio. Therefore we have been in offseason for about three weeks now. We still have 6:30 AM workouts every Monday and Wednesday, but we don't have scheduled practice times anymore. With that being said, I have a lot more time to do other things, AKA school. But also other things like getting taught how to ice skate by my partner in crime Jennifer Park - We went to the galleria, and they have an ice skating rink with the biggest christmas tree I have ever seen. I actually ended up getting the hang of it pretty quickly and I didn't fall once - which was pretty impressive if I do say so myself. My mind says November, but my heart most definitely says christmas.
Jenny and I also went to a Josh Turner concert at Billy Bob's. She's such a good friend for going with me, especially since she HATES country music. But I am slowly integrating the Texas way into Jenny's life. For example, on our way to Billy Bob's for the concert, I took her to eat her first ever whataburger. And I know she enjoyed it ;) Even though she is not the biggest fan of country music, she knew some of Josh Turner's songs and sang along with me which was fun. We also saw actual bull riding which was scary yet exciting at the same time & I taught her how to two step. My goal by the time I graduate here at SMU is to get Jenny a pair of cowboy boots and for her to wear them every once in awhile. If I can do that, I think I can do anything.
Most of the team also went to the SMU football game vs. UCONN last Saturday which was actually exciting. The weather was nice, and the team won - which is always fun to watch. I haven't been to one this year yet, so I now feel like I have fulfilled my duty as a true SMU fan haha
Next week is Thanksgiving Break and I am extremely excited to go home and be with my family for a couple of days. It will be good to get a decent break from school before it hits hard and the stress for finals kicks in.
This Friday the team is going to a Mav's game which will be fun - I don't think they are playing anyone spectacular, but nonetheless it is fun to go out and do things with the team. That is one thing I am extremely grateful for - how close knit our team is. We do a lot of things together which is definitely one thing that stands out from most other golf teams. It's nice to know they have your back.
anyways i'm off to class

We just had our third tournament of the season down in Austin, TX - the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational. It was an exciting event, and we had our best team round of the season during the first round - a score of 4 under! Our team fought and focused hard throughout the three rainy days, and we ended up in 5th place overall. We finally beat some teams that we hadn't in the past two tournaments, so it was nice to finally have success there. This tournament really allowed us to see what we are capable of, and see that our team can take it low. I have a really good feeling about our next tournament down in San Antonio, and I am excited for our future as a team.
Here are the results for the tournament: http://birdiefire.com/tournament/1890/scores/combo/
Next week we travel to San Antonio to play in UTSA's event at Briggs Ranch. Try and come out and watch if you are able to!!

Before I get started with my entry I have VERY important news for you to read
**Just a quick sidenote, in order to follow us you have to go to birdiefire.com - it is NOT on golfstat**
Now, back to my blog entry
College golf is great - you get to play golf with wonderful teammates, wonderful coaches, get an education, and travel to different places in the country. College golf is also great because sometimes they hand out really AWESOME tee gifts at tournaments. For example, after a long, but fun car ride consisting of Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, an italian song, and some hard-core rap for the one and only Jennifer Park, as well as some swedish mixes in there, we arrived in Moore, Oklahoma. We walked into our hotel and there are gift bags for the teams. Inside these gift bags were Beats by Dre, and that my friends is our tee gift for this event. This is one of the many reasons why college golf is great.
On the right is our yardage book. They took the time to put our school and our name on each one. Very very awesome.
This tournament is hosted by the Toby Keith Foundation, so my fingers are crossed that I get to meet him!! That would be the icing on the cake
I am really excited about this tournament, I think we are prepared and are ready to play the next couple days. Again, if it didn't stick the first time **In order to follow us you have to go to birdiefire.com - it is NOT on golfstat** So make sure you remember that IMPORTANT detail :)

This is on hole #10 (Gold) at DAC - the place we are ever so blessed to get to practice at everyday."Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true"
Every time I see a rainbow, the first word that pops in my mind is hope. A hope for possibilities. It reminds me that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, and to keep thinking positively allows you to persevere and get through any 'hard-times'. It has been a rough week, making up school work from leaving, and knowing that we were leaving again shortly, but I have managed to get my work done - and I am doing the best I can to get prepared for everything I have coming up.
Which reminds me, we will be playing in Norman, Oklahoma starting Saturday. Follow us :) and Pony Up!
