February 2008 Archives

February 11, 2008

Nina is 25 years old.

Lots of things happening at the beginning of the month this February.

Chinese New Year is on February 7th. (Year of the Rat)
Mardi Gras is on February 5th. (I already had my king cake)

And on February 2nd, 2008, the groundhog predicted 6 more weeks of winter, and I turned 25 years old!

Mike and I went up to Vancouver and spent a day skiing at Whistler (we skied Blackcomb). It was a great day and views were beautiful, though it could have possibly been a bit warmer... apparently temperatures at the peak were only 9 degrees! I was brave and decided to willingly ski down a black diamond run (Heavenly Basin). I'm sure it was a funny sight for anyone watching... Mike was standing midway down, yelling, "Turn! Turn!" I was at the top, slowly side slipping down a steep surface, whining, "I DON'T WANT TO!" Made it down just fine, though the moguls cause my form to suck pretty badly and my legs to get really tired. It's amazing how fast my heart will be beating after going down a run, and I don't even notice until I stop.

I know 25 is supposed to be one of those landmark years, but I don't really feel any older, maybe because so many of the people around me have already turned 25. I do know, however, that State Farm sent me a pretty pretty refund check for my car insurance rate being lowered.
