I'm totally excited to be doing this for the summer, yes, I already got sunburned on my forearms, but have a nice tan, and it's only going to keep getting better! Don't be jealous! Well all, look forward to some crazy stories, they will probably only be about the gross earth worms that scare me each time I encounter one. Although, I heard today some of the other girls had a run in with a snake...I'm going to start praying I don't!!!!

Loving My Physically Demanding Job!!!
Hmmm....a train bound for nowhere, or a physically demanding job in the heat of Southern Utah???? Yup, I survived my first week of work, and I think I'm going to like being on the flower crew. However, one thing I will have to deal with this summer is some back pain. I feel like I am using muscles that haven't been used in a while, and that is why my lower back is in a little bit of pain; but as soon as I hit that pillow at 9:00pm I am whisked away to dreams, and little to no pain at all. 5:00am comes early, and the minute I start up working it all comes rushing back.We work in teams, and I am with Crystal who just got off a mission - gag for recently returned missionaries, but she has worked on the grounds previous to going on her mission. Her and I have the area of "circumference of campus." We get to have our own little truck to haul our equipment, and most day's we are pulling weeds, or planting flowers. Can I just say SUU has such a beautiful campus, but for Jessie's sake USU has a REALLY beautiful campus too! Work starts at 6:00am and goes until 9:00am where we get a thirty minute paid break, then it's off to work until 12:00pm where we get another paid thirty minute break. Back to work and then at 2:30pm we are done for the day.
